Ten Friday Reads 9/20/19

I’ve got nothing for you. No commentary. This year feels so much like a replay of 2011 that I am giving the simulation theory some credence. Because of this, I will provide ten links. Right Wing Cope – Power has centralized in the presidency in some regards but holding the House matters. This essay seems…

Trickle Down Culture + Five Friday Reads 9/13/19

It was about 25 years ago when the film Dumb and Dumber came out. A quirky alt rock song had a brief run up the charts and the band never had another hit. The song was “New Age Girl“. It was a catchy song that men and women could both dig. Years later, you could…

To The Myth Cast + Five Friday Reads 9/6/19

I had promised Adam I would link to the Myth cast in each links post. I fumbled a bit. To make it for it, I will toast them. This latest episode was a Q&A session. They have had over 130 episodes, covering a wide variety of topics. They have distinct tones and styles to who…

Roosh’s Religious Turn + Five Friday Reads 8/30/19

This summer accounts online have been chattering about Roosh’s conversion and The Grift. Oh it must be a grift move. It is a pivot to make trad money. I did not believe that. I had a little faith in the guy. Even better, on his cross country trip, I knew we could meet. For ten…

Brazilian Radicalization + Five Friday Reads 8/22/19

America’s future is pretty wide open. Brazil normally enters into the discussion. This is a disservice to Brazilians who have a more unified sense of what is a Brazilian. America might be a bit more South Korea on top of Brazil with 1.0 TFR working women and hikkikomori in our upper class with a lumpy…

Epstein’s Dead + Five Friday Reads 8/16/19

Epstein is dead. There have been many hot takes. I have no clue who did it and we will never find out. Those in power who used him are in power for a reason. They are psychopathic rulers who will do anything to maintain control, which means more than you are willing to do plus…

Agency + Five Friday Reads 8/9/19

Just do it. Get offline and get moving. That is a steady theme to everything we write here. How few people do you need to start? All lifters start with the first pump. In one small town in Ohio, it took just four people. The Kilbourne Project was started with a few friends moving to…

Marianne Boomers + Five Friday Reads 8/2/19

Marianne Williamson. She would be Marianne Vishnevetsky but her family chose to use a pseudo, too. She talks in the touchy feely, New Age garbage cadence with a healthy dose of platitudes from the ’70s. She is unfairly compared to Trump, who had policies, and she is unfairly compared to cult leaders. She is a…

10 Friday Reads 7/25/19

I have been on vacation. Forgive me for no post last Friday and not much here. To make it up, I will link ten reads. Harvard Law Prof’s Life Becomes A Dark Comedy – A Harvard law professor gets conned by some lesbian and a trans person. I cannot do this justice. Read this and…

The Ballerina Wife + Five Friday Reads 7/12/19

Today I am going to resurrect a post. It was the most read post on my old blog until a group of individuals asked me to take it down because the post was social technology they did not want out. That was some autism on their part as the post was years old but always…
