"Art forms that appeal to modern leftish intellectuals tend to focus on sordidness, defeat and despair, or else they take an orgiastic tone, throwing off rational control ..."

The Skyking Flies Still · 4:17am Tuesday

People disappear from the internet. Blogs are abandoned, forums fade and last posts are made. You might wonder what happened to them, but you'll never know.
That isn't the case for Richard Russell's shortlived blog. Presumably created at the bayonet point of a grader's pencil, he only made a few posts and then dropped off without ceremony.

Everything is True; Nothing is Permitted · 5:35am April 11th

Krakatoa just went kraka-boom and that great lady might be setting a trend among her sisters.

I hope the first time you heard about this was from a My Little Pony fanfiction website, so you can enjoy the freely-floaty feeling.

Unfortunate paralells to the Nazarene · 5:53am Apr 16th, 2016

Not as dead as I had advertised.
Not as undead as one would suspect. Utter distate for the brains of others I have met. Most of them anyway.
Raising a toast, but it isn't really mine and the toast is actually grape juice.

Metal Balls Crush Context (and nothing of value was lost) · 2:01pm Jun 23rd, 2013

Today, this was posted on my user page,

metal balls
are jealous of glass cubes

with the challenge that I “think about it.”

Well, here is about two minutes worth of thinkage,

For a while, I’ve been meaning to do a couple blogs on the radical subjectivity of language. If I ever get around to doing that, this will be the practical introduction. If I don’t, then I guess this will have to suffice as enough said.

In Which Fiddlebottoms Has Become a Decadent · 2:28am Mar 11th, 2013

I have been known to preach politics slightly left of the aisle (provided that said aisle is through Noam Chomsky’s living room, and why shouldn’t it be?), so I feel it only fitting that I make a confession, for I have become a Decadent.

Crystal Ponies Confirmed for Useless Hunks of Shiny (Episerd Sperlers) · 4:26pm Feb 9th, 2013

So, after the introduction of the Crystal Empire, I wrote a story about how the Crystal Ponies were lazy, horrible creatures that enforced their empire through whining, general uselessness and threatening not to fill the skies with Rainbow Shininess.
My headcanon has now been confirmed.

We Have Reached the Tipping Point · 9:52pm Jan 29th, 2013

There are now as many blog posts about blog posts about alicorn Twilight Sparkle as there are blog posts about alicorn Twilight Sparkle, and now I am making a blog post about blog posts about blog posts about alicorn Twilight Sparkle and this shit seriously needs to stop.
All of it.
Quit talking.
About anything.
No more words. Just silence.

Listen to this.

Look at this.

Merry Eastermas Everybody! · 10:57pm Dec 25th, 2012

Today is the day for avoiding conversation with our loved ones by giving them a bunch of video games and other consumerist crap so that they'll shut up and leave you alone while you raid the liquor cabinet. A day for disappointment and washing new socks. A day for getting drunk at the only dive bar in town that is still open tonight and telling people you're Jewish.

And sense I love you all SOOOO MUCH! I created a gift:

Post Episode Blog (Horses Are Melodramatic III) · 4:14pm Dec 15th, 2012

So there was another episode of the Horse Show, perhaps you've heard of it?
I fucking hate fictional depictions of boot camp. Lightning Dust would have been signing her own death warrant the moment she eyeballed Spitfire, let alone challenging her, and Dash just sort of walks into Spitfire's office? What the Hell, man. What the fucking Hell?
And then people on Youtube complaining that Spitfire was being mean.
