A Glimmer of the Inner Lake
I would like to take time out of my life to discuss Rumpelstiltskin with you.
He is fucking stupid. READ MORE »
Well, it’s been almost a full year and it’s just about time for Noel to snap and go to the dark side again! Will anyone be able to talk him back with reason or will he have to be put down like the dog he is? Guest starring: George W. Bush!

Synchronous Timings are often reduced to mindless coincidences. I swim in glad, freeing circles and smile now in the cooling water about memories of the past and visualizations of the future. READ MORE »

Howdy Meltedcheesedeks, welcome to the forty-second continuation of HACK. If you’ve made it this far, there’s a silver lining just over that horizon behind you.
OK folks, here’s how this is going to play out. First I write a few self-referential paragraphs to get it out of my system, while simultaneously holding everything else in.

I’m just going to put this one up in the air, because I guess someone has to. There is no legitimate argument against same-sex marriage. None!

I’m just saying, I’m not drinking the Kool-Aid on this one, gang. Inflammatory remarks aside, marriage is an antiquated social institution that dates back to the days when human beings were considered property. Like? SLAVERY. Just. Saying. People aren’t property. Humans have invented all sorts of new meanings for marriage on a semantic and social level, but at the underlying core it is still about property. At least that’s how I see it through the lens of my outsider logic.
