While traveling in Latin America, it can become necessary to paint on the wall of a cracked-out taqueria to communicate effectively.  If you're not fluent in the local language, whether it be Spanish or loathing, it is often expedient to scrawl your...

"Your Truth" Is A Lie

5 May 2022 3 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

I believed in Santa Claus for over 30 years.  In spite of this belief, not one time did a guy named Santa Claus actually climb down the chimney to deliver me presents.  My faith was true, but the object of my faith was not.  It was a hard awakening,...

I've noticed a fair amount of frustration with American leftists by people who disagree with them.  This frustration expresses itself by using derogatory terms such as "libtard," etc.  This reaction is only natural, but it is the equivalent of a Navy...

When Se7en was released in 1995, I went to see it with some friends.  We all went to The Red Lion Pub in Chicago afterward and "discussed the movie" over pints of Guinness, because that's what we went to movies to do:  Learn and/or discover something...

Songwriting In An Age Of Narco-Feminism

Good Movies Didn't Go Away

I just watched a part of a video called "Why 99% of movies today are garbage," and was amazed to listen to the middle-aged guy with grey hair talk about how "dropping the ball" with some comic book or Star Wars franchise is an act of "malpractice." ...

The Drunkard's Puke of Bitterness

I've been aware of it for awhile, but writing this post over the last hour or so, and then deleting everything I wrote, it has become obvious why my focus is slowly veering away from art and music, and towards Christianity and salvation issues.  Not...
