Well then…

Sometime after midnight I’m going to tell Amazon to screw you guys over and double the price. Hah! That’s what I get to do, muthafuckas. Can you feel the power pulsing and gushing out across the web?

Remember Mother Jones, The Nation and a host of other so-called “progressive” and “alternative” outlets receive shady foundation funding, some of it connected to the Ford Foundation and the CIA.


Fuck the nuclear mafia. Fuck the fossil-fuel dinosaurs…





EPB, realized that smart-grid energy infrastructure could also provide consumers super-fast Internet speeds at competitive prices. A few years ago, those officials decided to act on that revelation…

This handheld gimbal revolutionizes the steady-shot. It will probably be expensive, but able to be rented. Amazing. I would shoot a whole film with this.
