Modern Writing

The pen is mightier than the sword… Take away the sword; States can be saved without it!Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1839 This metonymic adage, penned by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839, tried to indicate that communication ,...
Totalitarianism is Real

Totalitarianism is Real

I realized today what it felt to live in the USSR, Greater German Reich, North Korea, China, Equatorial Guinea or any other totalitarian regime, union or republic. I don’t state that lightly. Certainly, most Americans under 40 would have no notion of what any of...
What Winning Tastes Like

What Winning Tastes Like

I was vindicated tonight by another strapping young Olympian-bodied, athletic Hydrophile. After finding the mother-lode of scarce, limited edition insanely refreshing “Citrus Swish” flavored Gatorade hidden in the back of the bottom of an end-cap at one of...

MST3K Part 3 – The Apology

MST3K Part 3 – The Apology

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back on Kickstarter. And THIS TIME IT’s DIFFERENT. Sort of. Crowdsourcing what’s becoming more Joel Hodgeson and less the MST3K brand is what this seems to me. Let me offer some history before I dive into my thoughts about...
