Christmas Poop & Magic Mushrooms

Back on Christmas Eve, 2012, I tossed up this festive article about holiday traditions. A couple of things happened today to make me dig it out of mothballs and toss it back to the forefront of your mind. First, and by far foremost to me, Slashing Through the Snow: a Christmas Horror Anthology is out in time for the holidays and has the good fortune to count me among its authors. Second, probably more salient to you, is the fact that Edith Carlin, of the Aurora Carlins, asked me to.…

Your Holiday Shopping Guide

I understand the allure of shopping at big box joints. You know what you’re getting, you know the price will be cheap, and you’re not all that concerned about quality. You also end up in long lines, have the exact same product everyone else has, and, when all is said and done, have purchased a thing that will have no meaning beyond the immediate gratification. Kind of like fast food, but with slightly more health benefits. Today I’d like to offer you an alternative to that. You won’t even need…

President Trump

You have to say it several times before it sinks in. Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States. To tackle how this came to be I’ll fall back on the old axiom, write about what you know. Much has been made of his connections with the alt-right movement. Think of them as Nazi-Lite. They have all the cool gear with none of the actual drive. One thing they do have, however, is a dedication to particular forms of fantasies. I’m not talking about porn, although God knows…

Let’s Chat About Race

I know, I know, you’ve been waiting your whole life to have a, middle aged, white guy explain race relations to you. I mean, how the hell would you know what to think if you’re not told what to think by one such as me? And, in all honesty, I wouldn’t do this in a million years but someone I consider a friend admitted that she’s scared of white people. And that saddened me to the core. Especially since I can’t blame her. I see the same things going on…

Check 1, 2-3-4

(1) In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth (2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. – Genesis (KJV). That’s not a bad allegory for the Big Bang Theory, all things considered. From nothing came something. I can hear scientists from numerous branches lighting torches and sharpening pitchforks. I hope they’ll bear with me since this isn’t for them. This is, instead, for the nice…

Who Needs Humans Anyway?

Once upon a time humans thought of themselves as some pretty important shit. Top of the food chain and all that. We had it all figured out. Everything from how a god would behave, and subsequently expect from us, all the way down to how to use our resources in a safe and beneficial manner. If you’re not laughing yet you may either wish to stop reading now or seek therapy. Of course there’s nothing from preventing you from doing both. Go ahead and overachieve. Anyway, humans were the bomb,…

Lucita, a Girl Who Go Bang Bang

These indy-comic reviews are really making me new friends. People seem to like being introduced to new artists and artists seem to like being introduced to new people. In other words, if you’re a comic creator looking for a review, feel free to email us. We make a simple deal with all authors. We will never post a bad review. If we don’t like it we’ll tell you, but that’s it. No one here at World News Center is into trying to ruin careers. Especially when those people tend to…

Missing the Point

Donald Trump never wanted to be president. That’s a real job, something he’s never had, and it requires real work, something he’s never done. While it’s true he kinda sorta ran for president in 2000 as a reform candidate he only garnered 15,000 votes in California. For those playing along at home, that’s not a serious number in a state of millions. That’s barely a serious number in a suburb. Trump’s failings as a human and business person are myriad and well documented. At this point you either believe in…

Say Howdy

Back on February 20, 2012, I wrote, in depth, about something called the WOW! Signal. Discovered in 1977 it was a signal so strong that it cut through the flotsam and jetsam of noise our universe normally makes to catch the attention of a scientist named Robert Gray. Unfortunately, he was working from recorded data when he made his discovery and no one has since been able to replicate his results. Or verify his basic conclusion; this signal did not originate on Earth. The implications, if he was right, are…

Everything All At Once or Death by TV

You have no life. Or, if you think there might have been some vestige of a life clinging like barnacles to your ankles, this will remove that silly whisper of dignity. You see, today, I’m going to list every new horror and sci-fi TV show that’s coming out this season. And then you’re going to watch them. Each and every one of them. Your life will have no meaning whatsoever. You will be the flaccid consumer so grandly heralded in WALL-E. Your bloated body strapped into an electric cart as…
