If he keeps that up, he’s going to wind up like Vince Ayala.

August 20th, 2014 · No Comments · Humor, Idiots, Jaded Brechtian Ennui, Words

But his name is forever burned in my memory because a foot-long hank of his hair (with skin attached) was hanging, like a trophy, on the wall of my 7th grade shop class, with a neatly printed little sign below it that read “DONATED BY VINCE AYALA, 1973.” It served as a […]

My Parents Open Carry

“Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together. What’s not so typical is that Brenna’s parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense.” You know what else is not so typical? The hysterical reviews Amazon readers have left […]

“Scenes from a Conference Room,” a one-act play showing thrice-daily at deafening volume adjacent to my workstation

August 7th, 2014 · No Comments · Humor, Jaded Brechtian Ennui, Words

SEQUOIA CONFERENCE ROOM, mid-morning. Door opens, MEETING LEADER and ADMIN enter. MEETING LEADER noisily drops his materials on the table and starts fiddling with the projector and POLYCOM. MEETING LEADER: I can never get these things to work right. ADMIN: (shrugs) Mmmhmm. MEETING LEADER dials in to conference call. POLYCOM (at full volume): BEEP BEEP […]

Can someone help me find a “Conservative Hunting Permit?”

January 11th, 2011 · No Comments · Jaded Brechtian Ennui, Politics, Propaganda, Words

This week I learned that hateful rhetoric has absolutely no affect on society at large. So, I figured, what the heck… I’ll put a “Conservative Hunting Permit” sticker on my car for the LULZ!! Except when I did a Google search, I couldn’t find one.

If you read one “epic pwnage” story today, let it be this one.

October 14th, 2010 · No Comments · Idiots, Jaded Brechtian Ennui, News, Words

Perhaps you’ve been following the story about Jennifer and Scott Petkov, the callous asshat neighbors who taunted and harassed a girl with Huntington’s Disease (as they taunted and harassed her now-deceased mother before her). Now the good news… a local toy store (with a little help from reddit.com) raised more than $12,000 for a shopping […]

Summer Vacay

August 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Words

It’s gonna be quiet here for the next week or so… I’m on vacay and won’t really have much intertron access. Just wanted to take the opportunity to say: 1) From the “You people are Weird” file: for some reason, the “Brigitte Bardot/Woman with the Missing Hand” image had another upswing in popularity.

I don’t understand my target audience

June 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Words, WTF

Okay, I’ve been a mailing it in for a while now (real life gets in the way), but I checked my stats for the first time in many moons to find that this image of Brigitte Bardot and some lady with an invisible hand has become immensely popular over that past month or so. Not […]

What happens when you take audio of some dude tripping on acid commenting on TV with the sound off, and then set it to surreal 3D animation? (Hat tip: eatmoonpie)
