Skynet Calling…

This website has been around so long that we have a delicious little archive of eschatological paranoia in our lame-o forums about Y2K and the 2012 “Mayan apocalypse.” The general sense that the world is very doomed very soon has been weighing heavily on the minds of our handful of forum-goers for years. This is […]

Talk Hard…or…Whatever

I watched Pump up the Volume the other day. Just for old time’s sake. In 2012, when the movie turned 25, it sort of re-entered the collective consciousness of geekdom with several retrospective articles. I haven’t bothered to sit down and watch the whole movie for maybe 10-15 years, though. Which I think is a […]

But, in the end, isn’t it kinda funny?

All this talk about resisting and waking up and taking action is great, but I’d like to take a moment to indulge my strange love for history and poli-sci. Let’s remove ourselves a bit from the screaming chaos of the armchair warriors flooding Twitter and Facebook with their impotent outrage and just revel in the […]


Long ago, this blog used to have multiple authors. But then we all grew up and GS became all about “things Nacho has done with his penis” which was probably bad for readership. Hard to say, though. It’s been a thrill to see the return of former author “Rotting Corpse,” though. Sad that it took […]

That Old Darkness Again

When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, I was a happy man. I’d been surrounded for so long by armchair, crypto-Yuppie liberals who worshiped the ground Stewart walked on. They’d freely admit that they got all their news from The Daily Show and would even be proud of that fact and try to recruit others […]

The Other Shoe

I realized the other day that I’ve spent my life waiting for the other shoe to drop about the most inconsequential shit. I was cleaning up the guest room ahead of a weekend visitor and that involved shifting a bunch of business files, which I carefully put somewhere where I could quickly lay my hands […]

Conspiracies I Don’t Understand

I love me a good conspiracy. Who shot JFK? We don’t know. There’s weird shit there that doesn’t make sense. Was the moon landing faked? I used to call shenanigans on that, but, my god, we can’t even get out of Earth’s orbit almost 50 years later, so, hmmm, you know? Are there secret societies […]

Hang Yourself in the Woods

Google tells me that the site is getting tons of hits from the search term “hang yourself in the woods.” It’s probably because of this article from 2008, but I think it’s awesome that at least 15 people have searched for that term in the last 14 days. Is there some kind of suicide cult […]

It’s All Greek To Me

Last week, Greece capitulated to Europe’s demands and now we’re all happy, right? But, in the midst of the Greek crisis, I saw a lot of annoying shit from the horrific, misinformed, Satanic world of Social Media. The Greek financial crisis seems to have inspired people to Blame Germany, something I see quite a bit […]

Hell is Other People

Oh, it’s so exhausting bleating on about how much I hate people. It’s like Blogging 101 to hate people. I say we should all just take the next step and embrace this hatred and take positive action to obliterate a large percentage of humanity, either through direct action, or simply by supporting acts of genocide […]
