Can we trade Gavin Newsom for Kristi Noem?

What do South Dakota and California have in common, you may wonder. (I doubt you do, but this is me making a point). I can’t attest to specific commonalities between the states, but on an intuitive basis it’s safe to say that the contrast between the two is stark. In geography, climate, demographics, economy and…

Class dysphoria, the new American way

A skillful Preface about class … something I presume to touch upon. Astral Codex Ten, or “ACT” in my own personal glossary of Acronyma Autista, is cosmically prolific. If you wish, glimpse the blog sorcery.  His daily profusion of scholarly tomes is a feat of magic. And there is me. It’s all about money. ∞($$$)…

The Left can’t meme but it can sure complain about them

Excuse my hyperbole, but then again, what do you think this is…a personal, self-hosted blog or something??? What is hyperbole if not “overdescription?” In the case of my current hyperbole, the “overdescription” I engage in is describing a stereotypical collection of repulsive tools, aka, twats:  Sara Fischer from Axios, Vladimir Duthiers and Anne-Marie Green, both…

The Secret of Dr. Fauci’s Pharynx

*Real* scientists spend most of their lives in the lab, behind visual enhancement equipment and with sacrificial life forms.  They deal with objective data and props of their field.  As such, they do not generally develop extensive verbal talents. In fact, their ability to articulate may suffer, atrophying into obtuse vagaries when called to explain.…

The Kevin Mather Principle: apology is submission

My ascetic incompatibility with greed and materialism borders on legendary and autistic. My lifestyle, considering its urban SoCal metro nature, seems better suited to a mountain man living in a remote cabin with no running water. To my detriment, money has been one of my lesser motivations for anything in this life. Don’t get me…

A brief pandemic travelogue: Carmel, California

I wrote this on February 10, during the week we drove to Carmel, approximately 5-6 hours away from SoCal by car. Just a few observations I jotted which I’ve procrastinated over. Trips quickly retreat to hazy memory once they are done and “real life” takes over. Photographs and diary forms are the best way to…

The Consciousness Particle

There are those walking among us (after some introspection I realize I may be one of those who walk as well) who see consciousness as an existential web. Some people consider consciousness wholly.  That is not novel.  People have contemplated consciousness throughout the breadth of time and have conjured explanations and comprehensions of what this…

Bad Orange man for the Right, Bad Muddy man for the Left

This abomination. A name like that. Cenk Uygur. Who let it out of the cage? God-awful, worse name than even tragic dog video. And liberal as hell. Only upside of Texas power outages is people like @joerogan, who were so proud to leave CA and move to TX, freezing their asses off. They said they…
