The Dark Side of Troop Worship

I was in Wichita, Kansas last year on a job hunt.  Some guy in the area was looking for bass players, a retired professional in some other field who bought himself a small-time country music career.  He liked my audition video and wanted to hire me. ...

The Harsh Reality

21 Nov 2020 1 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

I'm writing this for the benefit of one person, but I want to be able to refer to it in the future, so I'm writing a blog about it. I'm aware my tone can be harsh.  I'm copping to it now.  You can guess the reasons why; they aren't important, and cer...

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." 1 Corinthians 2:9 I've been a citizen of Heaven for several months now.  For whatever reason, I've had a hell f...

Sanctimony & Degeneracy

14 Nov 2020 3 minute read 1 comment Nathan Payne

Sanctimony is a form of degeneracy.  Thinking too highly of oneself is a strong indicator of a degenerate heart and mind.  It is perhaps the last line of defense of degeneracy.  Or maybe the first.  Or maybe the only. Who ever heard of sanctimonious...

Choose Your Madness

Remember the scene in Shawshank Redemption when Brooks kills himself because he can't make it on the outside?  He was a liberal man in a free world.  He couldn't hack it.  Years of deferring his decision-making to outside sources had weakened him to...

Overthinking is Thinking

30 Sep 2020 1 minute read 2 comments Nathan Payne

I have a tendency to overthink things.  It's how you make sure a job is finished.  If you don't overthink, you will miss something.  You might miss something anyway.  Being cavalier about the possibility of a mistake doesn't lessen the potential impa...

America Needs a Hysterectomy

A society based on women’s fear is a loveless, beauty-free wasteland.     Say it again. A society based on women’s fear is a loveless, beauty-free wasteland. A hundred years ago, there was perhaps a need for feminism.  Women couldn’t vote or own prop...

Once upon a time, I used to enjoy writing trippy, epic poems.  I would write them in hotel rooms full of bugs, with bloodstains on the wall, staring out the window at the flashing, crazy city.  The first poem to ever appear in any kind of collection...

No Tengas Miedo

New T-shirt design, for those who feel little-to-no actual affinity with the victim-trip practitioners of SMUG LIFE all around them.  It makes sense to feel disenfranchised in the United States today, if you have brains, soul, and some artistic abili...

Nico Riot Sermon (I Don't Follow Sheep)

7 Jun 2020 1 minute read 1 comment Nathan Payne

The following rant by this black woman in New York to a bunch of soft white kids from Neverland is interesting for several reasons, one of which is that it's a perfect example of a free human being surrounded by sheep.     All of the people she's ta...
