Star Wars is the most deceptive and seductive pro-fascist narrative ever written

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?

SpitShake: Free Contracts for Ridiculous Wagers

This site came about after a friend attempted to eat 6 Arby's roast beef sandwiches in an hour, on a dare. Halfway through, an argument ensued about the terms... and we found ourselves wishing we had some kind of formal document, listing out all the rules of the bet. In a nutshell, SpitShake lets you create a free, customizable contract that you can print out for everyone involved to sign. [more inside]

Cold Cat (animated short)

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 brief bedroom dalliance. [more inside]

Twitov, a generative text bot based on your Twitter history

Twitov takes the Twitter history file some lucky folks have been given access to (Twitter says: Rolling it out "slowly" to everyone) and turns it into the brain for a Markov chatterbot. The results are slightly deranged and slightly stupid, but sometimes pretty funny. [more inside]

The Compleat Aberree: The Non-Serious Voice of Scientology, 1954-1965

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]

Obsolessons

Those who refuse to learn from the past… have obviously never read some of the frankly bizarre advice our grandparents thought fit to commit to print. Obsolessons is here to bring you the questionable wisdom of our ancestors, with the occasional useful tip like how to gild a live fish. Because how could that NOT come in handy?

My debut novel Nothingness

Years in the making, my first novel Nothingness is finally available as an e-book on Smashwords. It's a darkly comic satire on America drowning in delusion. A family is dissolving in a community turning more paranoid with every additional inch of rain that falls. It's like Don Quixote meets Lord of the Flies. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll believe anything. [more inside]

R Money Music Video

I made a music video envisioning Mitt Romney as a rapper named R Money who likes to rap about how wealthy he is. There is an interesting synchronicity between some aspects of hip hop culture and wealthy media figures like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney that make for a funny juxtaposition, I think. [more inside]

Fuck You Broccoli

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.

Photos By Nathan

Our three year old just figured out how to use our digital camera and steals it while we aren't looking. These are his pictures. Hipsterized. I ran them through PicYou, and named them as pretentiously as possible. The outcome is more interesting and funny than I could've imagined.
