What’s in a Name?

Generally speaking I try to avoid writing in my blog about subjects that are too personal or esoteric. I try to keep the topics I write about on this blog broad enough that an individual who doesn’t necessarily know me personally or my lifestyle can sit down and read and be as equally annoyed as […]

Change We Can Believe In

When I was 15 years old, Americans over the age of 18 without felony convictions went to the polls and elected the single stupidest president in the history of this country. George W. Bush is not only without a doubt the least intelligent person to be elected to be head of the US executive branch […]

Peace and Love

Given that I am generally an excessively negative individual, few things bother me as much as the idiotic platitudes and bromides that people choose to plaster about themselves as ways of defining their spineless and trite views on life. Based on reading my blog it should be obvious that I am a person who takes […]

God Hates Blogs

Tuesday, March 2nd Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church will be in my hometown of Richmond VA protesting at a number of Jewish sites (including the Richmond Holocaust Museum) as well as at an area high school. There are a lot of groups organizing counter-protests and there is endless debate about the best reaction […]

By Any Means Necessary

I wanted to take a moment to recognize that today is the 45th anniversary of the death of Malcolm X. Malcolm X is one of my personal heroes and represents the power of spirit necessary to be a revolutionary leader. Throughout his life Malcolm saw every side of the American experience, from poverty and crime, […]


“I’m not a very well-liked person” might be the biggest understatement I’ve ever written in this blog. If you’re reading my blog that means you have at least some exposure to what people call my “internet personality” which differs from my real life personality in that it is more obnoxious. I’m a guy that most […]

Til Death Do Us Part

Anyone who has known me for a while knows that at one point I was engaged. My ex and I had gotten her sized for a ring at a jewelry store and I was a couple of months away from buying the ring and helping to announce the whole plan to her family when things […]


I’ve always been fascinated by fire. When I was a kid, my two favourite mischievous activities were to throw eggs at passing cars and setting things on fire. My friends and I were always interested in finding newer and cooler ways of igniting objects. Rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, hair spray, gasoline, air freshener, lighter […]

State Murder

I am told constantly that because I am vegan and pro-animal rights, and because I am an Environmentalist and support the concerns of preserving ecosystems over human expansion, and because I am sterilized and therefore unable to reproduce, and because I support a woman’s right to have an abortion, that I tend to come across […]

America Smokes

The majority of people who read my blog live in Virginia. If you’ve had the dire misfortune of being born anywhere but our fine commonwealth then there’s a 50/50 chance that you are from a state that has already passed an indoor smoking ban and an even better chance that you’re from a state that […]
