Rant time, kids…although I think this one should be subtitled “The Biggest DoucheNugget in History: Close Encounters of the Turd Kind.” I hate malls…with a passion.  Nevermind it’s Christmas – which, like weddings, funerals, and wars, brings out the very best and the very worst in people.  But my hatred for malls isn’t only due […]

Get ready for some serious thrust, baby…because I’m sick of people who think simply posting ideas on the Internet makes said ideas worth posting on the Internet. And as far as I can tell in my quasi-drunken noncommittal surfings of this vast thing we call the Internet, atheists are one of the most boring, insipid […]

Thoughts about….Thought

Reading (as I often do, for better or worse) the cavalcade of political e-pinions has gotten me to thinking about the rather insipid anti-intellectualism that has persisted in North America since the Me Decade (the 1980s, for those of you born later).  It’s funny the way this plays out in pop culture…leaving aside all the […]

Really? I’m talking about this little tidbit from the “A Room of Our Own” self-styled “radical feminist” website at http://aroomofourown.wordpress.com — “Talking Cure,” A.K.A. “Soft P0rn,” A.K.A. “A Dangerous Method” Now maybe I’m partial this this particularly ignorant post because I’m a fan of psychoanalysis; maybe it’s because I’m looking forward to the movie; maybe […]

fuck summer.

So the other day I was on the UWO campus watching little tour groups of wide-eyed, inspired fresh meat get led around the campus, introduced to the facilities by young cheerleaders of late-capitalist education (an enthusiasm I simply cannot map to). It was a nice day, don’t get me wrong – little white fluffs of….what […]

Muslims: YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL.

Ok….this sorta thing just pisses me off. Maybe what I’m about to say is a platitude….then again, when I read things like this maybe it isn’t to some people: Pakistan backlash grows over Internet ‘sacrilege’ This needs to be said: MUSLIMS ARE NOT SPECIAL. Now, I know you think you’re special; and if I don’t […]

Another oldie, but hey – worth repeating….. An Open Letter to (UWO) English Undergrads As the school year winds down and I come out of another wish-you-were-beer mental haze induced by one too many half-literate undergraduate exams, I once again return to cultivating my master plan of world improvement.1 However, it also occurred to me […]

I’ll just let that sink in…

Don’t ask me why this happened to come to mind, seeing as it was a year or so ago…but it’s really just too good not to share with whoever happens by here… I got a letter from my superintendent’s office one day…the people I pay rent to. I really, honestly wish I had kept this […]

The Origins of Idiocy.

Posted: 30th June 2011 by traumaturgist in Uncategorized

Let’s face it – as a race, we’re idiots. Let this post be a statement of aims, of inflected cliché and provocations. What I’m going to write here isn’t new; but like all truisms, they need repeating through inflection to keep the message alive. “Idiot” comes from the Greek word for a private individual – […]
