Ode to Googlebot

Posted by on Aug 19, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, psychology, TheMachine, Truth

Checking the site meter. That’s me, watching me. Looking for you, to read. That hour long visit was from my best friend. His name is Googlebot and he’s made of tin. The life of an artist is desolate and lonely. Putting out feelers to the world is my only. Connection outside of these walls. Outside […]

they… want us to start thinking about colony. how you and i and family will be when it all comes to the end. the government has plans in place they say. loosely knit stories of where we will begin anew among all the rubble. anew among the virus that will double. an exterminator of […]

The Small People

The LIES Will not set you free, in this you can believe. The Gulf Coast will never ever be clean. You can run for office but you won’t do a thing. You are all the same we now know. You are only in it for the power you seek. President, Governor or Senator you all […]

Letter to the Last Generation

Dear Girls, You helped me through life. Through living. When things got hard I would look at you and feel your infectious energy and know that life was worth it. That all the trials and tribulations were for a reason. We have gone through a lot. Health care issues. Unemployment. Relocation. Wars. Global Warming. The […]

A short audio response to the comment below… Yes, Akbar, war in itself is a […]

A Soldier’s Oath

Posted by on May 30, 2010 in 2010, Choken Word, TheMachine, Truth, WAR

A soldier holds up his hand. An oath he thinks his family demands. He promises his life for something noble. Something more than the simple life he lives. The simple life that his ego will not soon forgive. Some are given cash bonuses. Some want to learn a trade or get a degree. Most can’t […]

Ode to Greedy Greg

My dearest Greg, You, like so many in our time, having seen a speech from Wall Street, the movie, have made a mistake that many 10 year olds of my generation used to make, wanting to dress up like Darth Vader for Halloween…Because you see, Gordon Gekko, representative of human greed as a source of […]

The End is Near

Hold onto your ankles boys and girls…we are getting ready to really see if there is a God, if there is anything like justice in this world…because according to the experts, it’s going to get real deep, real soon, so grab ahold of whatever reserves of courage and faith that you got and get ready […]

Who Let the Dogs Out!!!!

Very Rough Terrain…

Red Dead Seduction

Say what you will about the morality of video games, this game, releasing tomorrow is an example of a revolutionary new aspect of cultural arts.  What Casablanca was for the movie industry…it is very possible this will be for the gaming industry. I might be stretching this debate too far…but again, i am interested in […]


From the desk of Logocentric, Logocentric, and Father Mapple Moab Adzu III, Esquires. We have followed the Roboboy controversy closely, and as it has heated up [and been stirred and served by Akbar Lightning] we have been somewhat reluctant to weigh in. Here is why. We do not understand the identities of those entities [which […]

Collecting Souls

My little girl is two years old. She must watch television. Maybe it is a drug to her? Maybe it is her third parent or friend? I’m not sure but she does seem to need it now. My wife asked how her day was yesterday and my little one held up her hand and said […]

Utopian Fantasies

The fact that most are unwilling to face is that the rise of technology has decreased dramatically the necessity of work, and thus the driving force of exploitation.  So, those in charge are finding it more and more difficult to justify the exploitation of the masses, but they are still succeeding in doing so by […]

Ward 13

Posted by on Apr 28, 2010 in psychology, Survival, TheMachine, Truth, WAR

The best two weeks of my life was spent sitting with the “crazies”. We would talk about our lives and what it meant to be alive and about why we were here. The universe. God or lack there of. We had group session in the morning and in the afternoon. We were taken for walks […]

Ode To Haters….
