Nobody Is Safe

So I redesigned the blog, substantially. Yep. you see ads. They are served up randomly by Google and a couple of others I’m testing out. I like them, and I’ll tell you why.

We’re moving soon, and as such, have been selling stuff via garage sale and craigslist like crazy. No, the Denon Amp and Boston Labs speakers are not for sale. Ever. I…Read More

Juxtapositions in Image

So after getting my CSS custom code sorted thanks to a commenter, I’ve been wanting to get up as many banner images as I can juxtaposing the more natural human life—that of the Animal—and the neolithic, central-authority-based life of a minion and a tadpole. Just reload about every 10 seconds. I think there are about…Read More

One Neolithic Mind At A Time

I get email. I had never considered anarchy or what it is before reading about your views. Government was always assumed in my political thinking before.

Faux Independence

Sorry to rain on your picnic, but America will never be a free country until hot dogs and buns come packaged in equal numbers. So I must speak out. It’s probably good they have holidays like this, in a bread and circuses kinda way. Religion isn’t the only placating, pacifying opiate of the masses. Patriotism…Read More
