I used to be a huge fan of Star Wars, but I can no longer ignore the ugly truth. This is a video of a performance, part comedy, part political analysis of the Star Wars universe, wherein I present my take on the Star Wars mythology. Can you be leftist and pro-monarchy?

A freezing cat seeks the warmth of a woman, but ends up having to rely on city infrastructure. Along the way, there's a bit of Gangnam Style, a hot-tub scene of sorts, and a very

So: a parody London Heathrow Twitter account, tweeting from an alternate, slightly less benign universe. Learn about Heathrow's sinister cosmic plans for expansion, upcoming Christmas specials, and the airport's occult connections with Ancient Egypt.

The Aberree was a 'zine, or newletter, published from 1954 through 1965 by a former Dianetics practitioner. The Aberree started out as "the non-serious voice of Scientology" and ultimately encompassed all kinds of spiritual and self-help interests, from psychic phenomena and UFOs to improving eyesight. It shows that convention and uniformity weren't the whole story of the 50s, by a long shot. The Compleat Aberree offers text and images from all 110 issues. [more inside]

When I was a child, I hated all cooked vegetables, and a good number of raw ones. But the only recourse I had was to not eat them, and try to finagle my way into somehow getting dessert without eating them. But now that I'm older, it's personal. I still hate them. And I'm going ad hominem on all their asses.
