Social media and the Death of the Nation

By: Katie Callen

This worthless life we lead sitting like slobs watching people’s drama unfold is unreal to say the least.

I your fearless leader am at fault now! I come to you via face book but that’s what troubles me. Why do I sit here and watch like a helpless sheep waiting for slaughter? My brain is turning to mush as we speak.

And so is yours. Continue reading

The Death of Music?

The state of the music industry has gone down the proverbial shitter.

I seriously believe that humans are evolving to have no taste in music. Hell maybe even tone deafness from the womb.

Could it be my semi-old age giving me the cynical ear I’ve developed in the past couple years.

I once read an interesting feature on our great World Wide Web that stated all humans have a decrease in dopamine production after 24 years of age. Evolutionary tricky coupled with a love for dopamine producing drugs in my past have probably left me with the level of a cucumber. But I digress. Continue reading

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. I’m a Veteran, as are many on this page [and GonzoToday]. I will take time out of my day, to shake hands, thank, and even salute as many Veterans as I can.

Hunter S. Thompson was a Veteran.

“Whoa, back up you deranged ward healer.”

Well he was, and I don’t care in what capacity he or any other Veteran served. They all deserve our appreciation, thanks, and love, yes I used the L word. So what, I care that’s why.

I wasn’t in combat, but all the same I served, was held hostage, tortured, beaten, starved, pissed on, ate rats, and shit on myself, then was eventually rescued, by some of the toughest, and most professional, caring Veteran Brothers I’ve ever known.

That being said, say thank you to a Veteran tomorrow, it means alot.”

Inside the Mind of Nigel Farage: ‘I Want to Be Minister for Europe’

As Nigel Farage embarks on his second pint of bitter, I read him a paragraph from Hunter Thompson’s Rolling Stone obituary of Richard Nixon. “Some of my best friends,” Thompson wrote, “have hated Nixon all their lives. My mother hates Nixon. My son hates Nixon. I hate Nixon, and this hatred has brought us together. Nixon laughed when I told him this. ‘Don’t worry,’ he said. ‘I too am a family man, and we feel the same way about you.’”

This kind of collective detestation, I tell Farage, closely reflects the attitudes expressed by my friends when I mentioned I was coming to meet the United Kingdom Independence party (Ukip) leader. Continue reading
