Texas Independence Day, what irony

While Ukraine is up against a pretty brutal invasion from a Russian dictator, the “great” state of Texas has some parallel elements with the ongoing struggle between the two Slavic nation states. Firstly, the Texas War for Independence was similar to … Continue reading

Today is Presidents’ Day and the GOP shows its true colors

Contrite mea culpa bingo card

Joe Rogan continues to be the shitty, unwanted gift Austin received during the Pandemic and now he has been outed for saying racist and moronic things. Just like Louis CK or Brett Kavanaugh, instead of sincerely apologizing and cleaning up … Continue reading

KMAG reaches 16,000 songs to work from

Given all the hullabaloo about Neil Young withdrawing his tired, boring-ass music over Joe Rogan spreading his dipshittery via Spotify, I’m glad to announce my better, more intelligent stream hit a new milestone. KMAG now exceeds 16,000 songs to listen … Continue reading

Those who don’t learn from History…try to sanitize it

I wouldn’t be surprised if these were the posters Youngkin circulated around Virginia to solidify the White Trash and Centrist (aka Polite Racist) votes. How I wish Jim Kelly (the star on the poster) were still alive, he would’ve been … Continue reading

Millenials can’t get a break with Boomers

I can completely relate since I heard a similar litany spoken in 2000 when I was a younger person in the Eighties. Then the 2008 counterattack was “You didn’t listen to me and got a degree in something completely useless … Continue reading

Why I don’t miss cable/satellite TV 2022

I’m only a fair-weathered sports fan, aka I tend to watch Packers’ games when they play the Bears or they’re in the playoffs. However, I would say that meme is spot-on whenever I watch Fox’s Animation Domination Sundays or Futurama‘s brief … Continue reading

Renaissance Faire/Fest was great

Brought back two bottles of mead which has been a mystery and a staple of D&D for decades. Allegedly, it’s the favorite booze amongst elves or dwarves or gnomes, take your pick. It isn’t something you can get easily at … Continue reading

1996: Fox News begins and never stops lying

Twenty-five years ago, Murdoch and his minions felt the other corporate-owned networks were too far to the Left and/or Liberal. Mainly in how Clinton was skating toward a second term against Dole. Obvioulsy this meant there was a “media bias,” … Continue reading

Not really a problem until next year for me

I’m mixed about my return to the campus in October getting pushed back to January. I miss my veal-fattening pen and its perks. However, they weren’t really going to be open or at full capacity. Ergo, what’s the point? It … Continue reading

Afghanistan nightmare is over, new one coming

I want to make one thing clear, I’ve never been a fan of the 20-year debacle that destroyed thousands of lives and pissed away $2 trillion. Both could’ve been put to so much better use, namely infrastructure and elevating millions … Continue reading

Sadly, under 40% of Texas is vaccinated

This illustration works in a couple different ways. How stupid the “natural immunity” crowd is, proving that Dr. Toupée Paul went into politics in Kentucky because he is a shitty doctor. He makes Dr. Nicke Riviera a Nobel winner. The … Continue reading
