This is the non-retard version of the popular bumper sticker you see on far too many cars these days. “If God made man, Sam Colt made him equal.”

My god, what have I done?!?

Yes, I’m counting 13 days down, since 13 is my lucky number. In 13 days I will go back to college. I am both excited and frightened by it. More frightened by the parking than anything else, but also frightened by the encroaching stupid. Not that I don’t have to deal with another kind of […]

This guy gets it. Another reason I’m increasingly libertarian all the time.

My flight leaves a bit later than I thought, so here is a little bit of last second blogging. #1 — Sissy Switchblade still does not miss me. And I don’t miss her or her legion of jolly green giants. Or 99% of the assholes who inhabit Switchblade Sweeties. And Sissy still has sucky math […]

I was back on the old campus this evening for a special meeting. I was immediately struck by two things: 1) It looks like the university FINALLY hired a landscaper that could get the grass to grow right. No patches of brown anywhere to be seen, and so thick and luxurious! 2) The English teachers […]

It is May 14th, a Friday. It’s been almost two months since I left the Switchblade Sweeties social networking/art pic web site. Despite three auto-generated emails, I know for a fact that Sissy Switchblade does not miss me. Also, I know for a fact that she has horrible math skills. I was offered a year’s […]

…that Jeff Goldstein studied under Brian Kiteley. In general I find certain segments of academics to be an exercise in group masturbation. The worst offender was literary criticism. Not so much the study itself, but the way the radical feminist who taught it. But to cut a long story short – Victimology 101. The women […]

[click image to imbiggen] The real kicker is I’ve had that book for about 5 or 6 years now. I tried (unsuccessfully) to create a Las Almejas comic strip way back when, but I’m kinda glad that installment never took off. I shall try it again. That book is the “Getting Started” volume in the […]

I’m lazy. Plain and simple. Often times I get great pleasure out of creative writing, but I hate to do it. I can’t really explain it. Trying to rip myself away from the computer, a good book/manga, the PS3, whatever to write down words often seems like too great a burden. As if after working […]

Weather here has been crazy today. I’ve never seen snow as early as October, and neither has my mother. Trees are down on the road, it’s still snowing outside, and the power keeps going off, but thankfully only for a few seconds. I was supposed to have a meeting with my advisor about classes next […]

Last night I dreamt I was staying at a hotel in a foreign city. In the distance I could see an amusement park, the pirate ship to be exact. Except it was one of those that went all the way upside down. Anyway, the strange thing about it was before the ride ended, one random […]

Ann Coulter/Janeane Garofalo slash! Actually, I’m shocked somebody hasn’t done this yet. You’d think that with the thousands of porn page online, SOMEBODY out there would write this. It’d certainly be better and more interesting than Britney/Xtina slash. And even though I was once an avid reader, the whole Buffy/Faith slash thing is getting old […]

I usually don’t tell other people about my dreams, but last night’s was really odd. I dreamt a fictitious uncle of mine had died, and I was at his giant New England mansion for the funeral. A seemingly narcissist and one who had invented some sort of special beer, his house was plastered with portraits […]
