Blog-Off Battle: Calvin Shub (Part 4: Opposition Rebuttal)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

Yet again, Mr Shub is communicating to us that he is not one to back down from a challenge – especially when the challenge is rather dickishly thrown at him (behind his back too, if that makes sense). He’s a brave one, despite all indications… so brave that he threatened to involve his lady, who

Perchance to Dream

Running in the rain at dawn gives a weirdly peaceful feeling. It clears the head, so much that it somehow qualifies as meditation. As it happened, my short bit at ‘meditation’ this morning helped me assemble a short list of musings and observations: 1.)  Anxiety gets in the way of a good night’s sleep, especially

Ask Archer: Bi Some Time
Archer Answers Your Big Questions

Dear Prof. Archer, I notice that your advice column comes out about every two weeks, or twice a month. Does this make your biweekly or does it mean that it is bimonthly?   Thank You, Bi-Curious Gurl  

 

Blog-Off Battle: Calvin Shub (Part 3: Government Rebuttal)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

You know what, Calvin Shub? That’s not a rapper name. I mean… your last rhyme was pretty good and all (for an amateur), but you don’t exactly sound like a rapper with that name. I suggest you go with C-Lo. I promise that you won’t get sued by a more successful rapper for infringement. Better

The Long and Short of It

Even before txtspeak came into common use for Pinoys, we already had a tendency to abbreviate phrases into pocket-sized terms. For one thing, we really like our acronyms as a people. Had the invention of I.T.A.L.Y. been documented, we would definitely celebrate that day as a national holiday. If you care for your healthy eyes,

Blog-Off Battle: Calvin Shub (Part 2: Opposition Constructive)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

One of you snitched. FYI, I received a sternly worded message from an evidently irate Mister Shub. He seems offended that I posted five rhyming stanzas about him – although I think he found it offensive because I only used three of those to detail his questionable sexual exploits. Being the gentleman that I am,

Off Bleat #1: Backdraft (Reprise)
Our Bloggist Looks Back at Formative Influences

Yes, the blog received a lot of visits coming off the first post I made about Backdraft. It’ll be stupid (as the ladyfriend would say) for me to not follow that up, so here we go. While I’m at it, may I please invite you, kind reader, to visit my Facebook or my (dormant) Twitter

Blog-Off Battle: Calvin Shub (Part 1: Government Constructive)
Because Slagging Other People Off Is Better Through Rhyme

Something about this silence disturbs me. To the bottom-left of this page, under ‘Link Anything’, you will find that I host links to blogs that are maintained by ‘friends’. These ‘friends’ of mine are benefitting from those links because I have the most wonderful readers, even though you readers number less than – I don’t

Ask Archer: Plural Arrangements
Archer Answers Your Big Questions

On June the 29th, yours truly received the following mail-in question: Dear Prof. Archer, Am I a Kardashian or aren’t I?   Sincerely Yours, Katz Kardashian  

 

The Comedy King (And I)

At the time, holiday snaps came in multiples of twelve. They rarely exceeded thirty-six per camera. Inevitably, the context in which each photograph was taken got captured along with the point-and-click, as if one’s brain also took a snapshot. We see here a picture of a man and a young person-thing obscuring a cartoon giraffe.
