Review: Star Trek Beyond

Every once in a while, I’ll post a short review on a movie I’ve seen. I’ve been posting these to my Facebook page, but I figured, I’ve got this website, so I might as well use it. The first one is for Star Trek Beyond. I’ll warn you before I mention spoilers. This is very …

The Case for Secession

I could have sworn that I’ve ranted about this before, but I guess not. By now, some of you have seen some variation of the image to the side. If you google “dumbfuckistan” you’ll find everything from internet memes, to hats, to even panties for some reason. This makes me think of an idea I’ve …

Artsy Fartsy

Modern Art is a cop-out. Let’s be clear here, though. I don’t mean “art in modern times”. I mean a style of art called “modern” or “conceptual”. Back in the long long ago, art required skill. Now, anyone can vomit on some canvas and call it “art.” Let me take a step back. At some …

Fun With Numbers: 2016 Presidential Election

I’m writing this March 8th, 2016, so there are quite a few caucuses (caucii?) to go. That said, the media has been doing absolutely everything they can to diminish Bernie Sanders as a candidate, and everything he’s accomplished so far. In full disclosure, even though I’m not a journalist, and this website is just for me …

Review: Sterling-Scott ties

I am known for my tie knots. I always wear my neck ties with crazy knots. I’ve got an entire album on my Facebook page dedicated to them. A year ago, I heard of a new type of tie, called the Sterling-Scott. When I first saw them, I thought, wow, these are expensive. But I …

Server Build Part 1: XenServer

I’ve decided to document the trials, tribulations, and a word that starts with “T” that means “I seriously contemplate suicide because this won’t do the thing I want it to do”. Let’s go with t…fuckingkillme. I’m going to break this down into sections, as each will have a different goal and solution. Keep in mind …

Chris Explains Rap Lyrics to White People

So yeah. I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel for topics. Writer’s block is a bitch. Anyway. There’s a huge cultural difference between African Americans and European Americans. Caucasians. Crackers. Whatever. We white people have almost no clue what it’s like, and especially what it has been like, to be black in America. Nowhere is …
