2018: Kick it Up a Notch

I hadn’t planned on writing a specific New Year’s message, but my wife, collaborator, and consistent champion, Nora, pretty much ordered me to do so. As a result, here we are. Before I get to 2018, let me say a few words about the previous...

The New Girl

Like just about everyone else in the country, I’ve been following the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein situation very closely. The amount of men who have seen their careers destroyed is damn near too long for me to mention in one paragraph. Plus, you know...

Humor About Hot Women Now Problematic

I have a much longer post about the sexual harassment “wave” that’s been sweeping the country coming up soon, but I saw a letter in the local newspaper that I just could not resist commenting on. As many of you know, the local newspaper in...

BREAKING NEWS: Mainstream Media Sucks

With the exception of talk radio, my media diet over the last six months has consisted of nothing but mainstream offerings. Tech coverage is almost non-existent in the MSM, you hear very little about free speech issues on college campuses, and you get short-changed when...

The Long Goodbye

When I got into some trouble last summer, I had hoped to avoid going away for a stretch. I don’t think what I did is worth the punishment I ended up receiving, but that happens sometimes. It’s still my fault for putting myself in such...

Lies, Damned Lies, & Autistics

So, I’ve been in the “news” recently and I felt it would be appropriate to come here and bang out a few hundred words, even in the midst of vacation time with my wife. Sometimes, it’s best to hear things directly from the horse’s mouth....

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, Sandra

If you’ve followed this blog, you may know that my mom has been ill as of late. Ever since she had to go on dialysis for her kidney failure 6 years ago (first peritoneal and now hemo), she’s had some health issues. Most of these...

TRR STRIKES AGAIN: BioWare Montreal in Shambles After Mass Effect: Andromeda Disaster

I caught a lot of heat off the Mass Effect: Andromeda post from earlier this year. All I did was take a woman to task over her claims about having been a “Lead Facial Animator” for the game. It turns out she had somewhat inflated her...

TECHNICAL FEEDBACK: Redirect Ads Are Supposed to be Banned on This Site. Let Me Know if You’ve Seen Them.

This is really annoying and I’ve been spending all day working on the issue, but I don’t know what else to do other than put out a post. As you know, I use advertising to make a living with my work here. I try to...

MTV “Internet Feud” Show That I Agreed to Be on Causes SJWs to Flip Out

Around 10 days ago, I got an email about appearing on a Reality TV show from the producers of Catfish. Basically, the premise was described to me like this: Two people who have feuded over the internet meet each other in real life. It sounded...

Native Advertising, “Vacation,” & Open Thread

Ads run the operation of this site. I wish there was another way for me to make a halfway decent living, but there really isn’t. I do have the PayPal and the Patreon, and some of you have generously decided to give to either/or. Even...

Easter, Professional Atheism, Quiet Agnosticism, & The True Injustices

Happy Easter! Even though I celebrate the holiday, I’m not a religious person. Although, I have found myself shift away from atheism into agnosticism over the last year or so. I’m not sure why that is, although it might have something to do with the...

FAREWELL TO FREEDOM BEGINS: More Posts, More Videos, More Everything…Starting Tomorrow Evening

Tomorrow afternoon, things will get back to a more regular schedule. I will have 74 days until my farewell to freedom and I plan to make the most of them. Look for more videos, articles, and anything else I can think of. I don’t want to...

Nora & E: Husband & Wife

This is not an April Fool’s Day joke. We’ve been enjoying our honeymoon, so that’s why I’ve been missing out on some work here. Also, my mother had a scheduled surgery, so things have been really busy. Even so, were going to do the #Killstream...

I Just Spent 3 Solid Hours Sorting Old Posts. Enjoy the Archives!

Back when I put this current theme up around September of 2015, I started a new category system (more like it was forced on me due to the theme setup, but I digress). Before that, “tags” made up the primary way you could search through...

The Amazing Autism of Anti-Eceleb Absolutism

I don’t really consider myself an eceleb, but I can understand why some might. I have a “verified” check on Twitter, I derive most of my income through online activities, and I write almost daily here on this very website. I have been cited in...
