Nude Texas Ugly Bacon Vibrators

Yeah, I just used the generated tags to come up with a title today. First off, Big Ups to all my homies in The Ex Senators for the triumphant release of their cooler than hell video, Start a Fight. The fact that I co-produced it only shows that they have good taste as well as talent. The video even got a great review on the U.K.’s hippest e-Zine, Louder than War. That’s not to say everyone in the U.K. is all things wonderful. The people at the Daily Mail called…

You Knew It Was Florida, Didn’t You?

Do you like horror movies? I hope so, because we’re about to live in one. we’re going to do a deep dive into this but, for now, this sentence sums up the idiocy we’re facing; “For the recent public forum regarding Oxitec’s recent permit application in the US, there were 31,174 comments opposing the release of the mosquitos and only 56 in support.” What are we yammering on about? The United States Government, with the blessing of the governments of Florida and Texas, are going release genetically modified mosquitoes into…

Make It Stop

I really don’t want to write about the novel coronavirus a/k/a COVID-19. Really. I’d rather be writing about new movies or TV shows coming out, fun things people are doing, fun things I’m doing, even the murder hornets that are headed our way. At least they’re different. Okay, just for a moment, let me address the murder hornets. They kill bees, not people. So there’s that. Praying Mantises can kill them. That’s true. However, covering the west coast with praying mantises is a staggeringly bad idea. Praying mantises are meat…

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.…

Getch Ur Stoopid On

At the turn of the 20th century the industrial revolution was upon us in full and science was highly prized as a concept and a reality. People were rapidly admitting what they did not know and were using logic and deductive reasoning to fill in the gaps. Not that this burgeoning age of enlightenment was all kittens and rainbows. Some used science to justify racism. They called it Social Darwinism. Survival of the fittest, as it were. There were, and are, a couple of problems with that, for lack of…

Dropping Some Knowledge

I’m a big fan of the Internet. I use it every day for checking up on sports talk, looking up facts, conversing with friends, and all sorts of fun stuff. Essentially, to me, the Internet is a great public library. Something that rivals the legendary Library of Alexandria. But, unlike a traditional library, the Internet allows anyone to share their thoughts, hopes, dreams, and aspirations. That can be a good thing. Or it can be a nightmare. I’ve written before about various and sundry hoaxes that permeate the online ether.…

Stuff That Makes You Go Hmm

People always ask me why I tend to favor pictures of sexy women on my blogs. The answer is easy, I like sexy women. If you like pictures of sexy men I suggest you go visit my buddy David Onassis. His pages are festooned with them. He’s also a nice guy and it won’t kill you to meet a nice person once in a while. Anyway, sexiness aside, there’s been a lot happening in the wonderful world of science and I thought today might be a good day to fill…

Squanto Was a Dick & Other Holiday Faves

Everyone has their holiday traditions. Eating black eyed peas for New Year’s. Going to a Sadie Hawkins’ dance for Valentine’s Day. Getting hammered to honor an aesthetic patron saint. Wallowing in pagan fertility rituals to commemorate the resurrection of Christ. Using high explosives to celebrate our peaceful freedoms. Dressing up as sex starved maniacs who just escaped from a cave to revere our dead ancestors and, of course, memorializing the birth of a man dedicated to poverty and peace by spending spending fucking obscene amounts of money and fighting like…

Playing the Race & Religion Game

Recently Donald Trump’s Twitter account busted out the most racist, and factually inaccurate, graphic anyone (who’s not a member of the KKK) had ever seen. It showed that 8 out of 10 whites who were murdered were murdered by black people. Common sense tells you that’s bullshit, but common sense has very little to do with what Trump is selling. He, and the rest of the Republican Presidential candidates, except for John Kasich who doesn’t stand a blowjob’s chance in a nunnery of winning, are all about pandering to people’s…
