A Time Traveler Is Predicting The End Of The World When?

A Time Traveler Is Predicting The End Of The World When?

The Middle East is erupting in violence. People are protesting. We’ve got two senile people running for president. And yet we’ve got bigger things to worry about, people! Like this: A TIME TRAVELER FROM THE YEAR 2485 IS PREDICTING THE WORLD IS GOING TO END!!!! When???? When???? When?????? Well, glad you asked, because it allowed me to get rid of some of those question marks I had left over after I stocked up on them during covid. Well, listen to a story about a man named Jed. Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed. But then one day, he was shooting at some food, and up through... Read More

QAnon Sept. 24 Conspiracy Will Shock You, But Is It The End Of The World?

QAnon Sept. 24 Conspiracy Will Shock You, But Is It The End Of The World?

I always love it when a batcrap crazy conspiracy theory gets trumped by an even more insane one, and so, imagine my surprise and delight this week. I’d already been getting ready to write about the conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Queen Elizabeth, which included her being a lizard person, her being a clone, her being a body double for the real Queen who was an immortal lizard person who was going to now possess Meghan Markle’s body, and, not to be outdone, that she was assassinated as part of the plot to reinstate Donald Trump as president, known, like an ’80s hair... Read More

2023: Marking The End Of An Era For The Quad-Cities

2023: Marking The End Of An Era For The Quad-Cities

Every year’s end marks the changing of time and the perceived beginning of a new era. But usually things aren’t anywhere near as pronounced or dramatic as we frame them to be due to the calendar’s end. For example, if you look at the change over from 2019 to 2020, it was relatively uneventful. The “new era” of that time didn’t arrive until March of 2020, when covid shut down the world and truly marked a definitive change. However, this year seems different, at least regarding the Quad-Cities entertainment and media scene. Two huge events – the retirement of Paula Sands and the closing... Read More

Classic Christmas Shows Still Shine Brightly During Holiday Season Amidst The Turd Bowl

Classic Christmas Shows Still Shine Brightly During Holiday Season Amidst The Turd Bowl

Here it is the weekend before Christmas, which means we’re almost to the end of the pestilent parade of inane Christmas specials. Every year it’s the same old story, and it’s not a good one. The shows can be broken up into the usual categories: Roaming bands of has-beens, never-beens and sometime-before-the-Stone-Age-beens hit the screen to mangle the Christmas songs we know and love. “And now, I’d like to introduce a dear, dear friend of mine, Denny Terrio, who will sing `Silent Night.’ AAARRGGHHH!” Snotty-but-hot stars are given an hour to act... Read More

Looking To Cook Up Some Love This Cuffing Season? Reach For The Spam

Looking To Cook Up Some Love This Cuffing Season? Reach For The Spam

It’s Cuffing Season again. For those of you unaware of the concept, allegedly when the weather starts getting colder, people look around to link up in a relationship. One reason why is because it’s just too much effort to get out and about when it’s snowy and cold and miserable, and it’s much easier to have someone around in a relationship. Another reason is because people don’t want to be alone for the holidays. Whatever your reason, various articles have talked about the phenomenon, and there’s some credence to it as more than just an anecdotal trend that people... Read More

Quad-Cities' Einstein's Sister Trek To Abbey Road For New 'Exit Strategies'

The Quad-Cities’ Lennon and McCartney, Kerry Tucker and Bill Douglas of Einstein’s Sister, have more than expert pop songcraft in common with the Beatles on their latest EP, “Exit Strategies” — the record was mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Miles Showell, who has mastered records by The Beatles, The Who, Queen, and others, is one of the sonic luminaries on the new album; the other being Nick Davis, who mixed it, and has worked with XTC, Genesis, Bjork and others. “It was unbelievably surreal,” Tucker said of being at Abbey Road. “We were in the middle of working on something... Read More

Are Celebrities Mind-Controlled Zombies?

Are Celebrities Mind-Controlled Zombies?

The Royal Family! Taylor dating Jen’s ex! Kanye West says something stupid! Ever notice that the more heinous things get regarding the economy, wars, presidential scandals, etc., the more intensely the media ignores the real news to concentrate on either celebrity scandals or deviant crimes? Sometimes I wonder if there’s a grand conspiracy regarding celebrities as well. What if celebrities are nothing but programmed Manchurian candidates, Stepford performers, who are hypnotized and controlled by secret government handlers who then program them to do silly crap to distract the masses every time... Read More

Is Joe Biden Dead And Replaced By A Clone, Or Jim Carrey?

Is Joe Biden Dead And Replaced By A Clone, Or Jim Carrey?

This week, conflict stormed within the Democratic party, as longtime Democratic consultant James Carville, and longtime pot-smoking liberal comedian Bill Maher chatted on Maher’s “Club Random” podcast about Joe Biden needing to drop out of the race before he loses to Donald Trump. Both Carville and Maher said that Biden was too old and senile to run for president and that Trump would demolish him if the election was held this fall. This caused a number of corporate media loyalists to the DNC to criticize both men and defend Biden. In the meantime, I reassured by liberal friends... Read More

Taking A Chainsaw To Chain E-Mails And Strange Friend Requests

Sean Leary

Sierra, I’m sorry. Call me several times burned and now shy, but I must reject your offer of friendship. Unfortunately, the same goes for you, Pat and Carole, and you, Ashlee, and, sadly, Stephanie and Katrina as well. And Gaston, don’t even go there. Now, I understand, you’ve tried contacting me via facebook friend requests, message requests and e-mail a number of times. I see your messages, with their pert subject lines — “hello!” “Someone wants to meet you” and who can forget “Want to come play tonight?” I admit, you are nothing if... Read More
