That Moment You’re Out Of Battery. Oh. Great! I’ve Got Another One. Battery, That Is.

A pretty gruelling ride yesterday. It started with a train ride that took me and my electrified The Panzer to the badlands at the end of Wuppertal. (Btw, if you've never been to Wuppertal, you have to go. It's worth it to go there and just take a ride on the Schwebebahn.) From there I … Continue reading That Moment You’re Out Of Battery. Oh. Great! I’ve Got Another One. Battery, That Is.

The Ugly Truth From The Ugly Mouth That’s Never Been Washed #Soap

“...the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.” -Steven Bannon. The thing about hate is how it can go so well so unseen. I experienced … Continue reading The Ugly Truth From The Ugly Mouth That’s Never Been Washed #Soap

Pseudo Review: RasPlex + Hifiberry And Some Serious Audio On The Cheap

  Kinda follow-up, update to this post here. More pseudo-review of audio equipment here. Can a non-audiophile still hear great audio? Can a music-lover of old music still get some jams through his/her head in these digital times without breaking the bank? Do those guys that spend all that money as "audiophiles" give you the … Continue reading Pseudo Review: RasPlex + Hifiberry And Some Serious Audio On The Cheap

Lucky Castle Sunset vs 1979 Solar Eclipse And A Treehouse I Never Built

Disclaimer. This post is somewhat NSFW. Good luck. §On account I'm so jealous that I couldn't see the solar eclipse yesterday, here's a pic I took two weeks ago while visiting the Ostsee. Sorry for the over-exposure. (That is over-exposure, right? I really know zilch about picture taking.) §I do recall seeing a solar eclipse … Continue reading Lucky Castle Sunset vs 1979 Solar Eclipse And A Treehouse I Never Built

My Grandfather Served In WW2 On The Losing Side

https://twitter.com/attn/status/898328098529083394 “Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men ― men who came home from the war filled with shrapnel and guilt. Men who were misled into a losing ideology. ...  And right now they’re resting in hell.” -Arnold Schwarzenegger My grandfather was in the German Navy in WW2. I'll never forget him telling me … Continue reading My Grandfather Served In WW2 On The Losing Side

The Red Pill Or The Blue Pill? Either Way Your Inner Fascist Drank The Kool-Aid Milkshake Galore So Keep Smiling

It's not that complicated. More worst-posts on fascism here and here. If you've never read this before, be warned.

If You Can’t Manage It Or Pay For It Then It’s Time To Burn It (As In Down) To Make Sure You Still Win

What do most children do when confronted about lying? Indeed. They lie. I suppose parents who teach those kids not to lie are doing the right thing. But isn't the real reason why the kids lie in the first place the more pertinent issue? Then again, is the real reason anyone lies ever addressed? The … Continue reading If You Can’t Manage It Or Pay For It Then It’s Time To Burn It (As In Down) To Make Sure You Still Win

The Moment You Recognise Your Comfy Pillow And Then Are Aghast. Or Maybe Not.

Do you wake up as soon as you recognise the pillow your head's been resting upon (all your life)? Or do you go back to sleep? #americant It is, indeed, a comfy pillow. But let's call it out all the same, eh, dear worst-reader. I recognised the fascist pillow I was sleeping on the first … Continue reading The Moment You Recognise Your Comfy Pillow And Then Are Aghast. Or Maybe Not.

How Stupid Is You? Check The Icing In Your Cake Or The Butter Before You Penetrate.

Of course, I do have the following worst-question: how is it that my beloved #americant can elect Barry-O... but... then... because of a woman candidate... also elect the likes of #Trump directly thereafter... which... then.. has lead to...

Email From An Old Friend Or How To Fight The Nuance Of Innate Hate Run Amok While Consuming To Survive

Below is a shocking, nuanced-filled email exchange with an old friend. Unfortunately, even though I wish otherwise, there's not much I can do about what is really going on back in my beloved #americant--that can lead to such an email. I am not only an expat but I'm also no longer a believer. Indeed. I … Continue reading Email From An Old Friend Or How To Fight The Nuance Of Innate Hate Run Amok While Consuming To Survive

The Not-So-Great Re-Read Of Someone’s History Re-Told Or How Greed Has Made Your $hitshow

A pseudo-review of this book is here. I recently felt compelled to re-read it. Reason? Something has stuck in my head for the last few years based on something I read about this book a few years back. I can't remember who wrote it--or maybe it was something I even heard someone say--but it went something … Continue reading The Not-So-Great Re-Read Of Someone’s History Re-Told Or How Greed Has Made Your $hitshow
