Forget the Past and Just Say Yes

The image above is of the Eternal Flame Falls in Orchard Park, NY, just outside of Buffalo. It’s a little waterfall with a natural gas leak, meaning there’s a naturally occurring flame burning at all hours of the day. There are other leaks nearby, but they have to be lit with a match; the one […]

Hydrofucked

Before I resolutely decided to hike across America to Portland, I seriously considered hopping on a bus to Williston, North Dakota instead. If you’ve been reading the news, you know that Williston is the oil boomtown that’s been hiring guys for jobs paying up $120,000 a year without any prior qualifications. As a result, jobless […]

The Problem with the Men’s Rights Movement

NOTE: This article was originally published at In Mala Fide on May 1, 2012. I’m re-posting it here as the site will soon be defunct. *** I’ve been a long-time lurker in the manosphere and on MRA blogs. I agree with much of what they say, but I realized a while ago that I couldn’t […]

“Looks Don’t Matter”: How to Tell Keyboard Players from the Real Thing

Do any of the frauds who claim that “looks don’t matter” for guys really believe the BS they’re spewing? Unlike most of these dregs, I’m not anonymous. You can see what I look like by clicking on my About page. Without so much as pressing the Play button on my vlog, you can guess the […]

The Organic Food Section: Not Just for Hippies Anymore

Because I live in a Cracker Barrel county, I’ve never had the pleasure of stepping foot inside a Whole Foods. Wegmans, one of the regional supermarket chains, has pretty well-stocked organic food sections in its suburban stores, and I used to sneer at the crunchy granola types who filled its aisles in search of fair […]

Young White Female Needed for Companionship and Sexytime

Attention relationship-seekers! Are you a single young woman between the ages of 18 and 22? Do you have a BMI between 18.9 and 24.9? Are you a mild-mannered introvert who prefers to be seen and not heard? Are you a caring, feminine individual who doesn’t want to wear the pants in the relationship? If your answer […]

Snow by Orhan Pamuk

I haven’t read any of Orhan Pamuk’s other novels, so I can’t judge the quality of his work, but Snow is a pretty good excursion into both the emptiness of modern life and the wretchedness of being a beta male. I don’t care for Pamuk’s postmodern trickery (for example, he inserts himself as a character near […]

North to Canada

So I’ve decided to change gears. I’m still walking across America to Portland, Oregon. But before I do that, I’m going north to Montreal to cover the student protests. That is, assuming they don’t die out by the time I get there. One of my bigger recent regrets was not joining #OccupyWallStreet before it was […]

Roadkill Nation

My first experience, if you can call it that, with roadkill was when I was a little kid. I was with my family and we were driving back from my grandparents’ house when we hit a bump in the road. My mom, who was driving, said that we’d run over a chipmunk. Naturally, this upset […]
