Life’s been a bit busy. Forget the fact that the Icepocalypse here in Texas knocked out my solar trailer, leaving me with only generator power for a month or so. Then the generator went out too. I was able to buy a new solar charge controller a month or so again, but it was worthless […]
Democracy is the rule of the thuggish mass, and the more direct the democracy the more thuggish it becomes. Mental fragmentation, by its very nature and as it increases, inevitably leads to a more and more direct democracy. The natural inclination of direct democracy is the abuse of the minority and the destruction of individual […]
Civilization Deplatformed. Why we are seeing a growing hostility to free speech and how this hostility is a planned result of the process of mental fragmentation. Mental fragmentation is a result of mental colonization, the designed destruction of man’s ability to think in “wholes” by fracturing the human experience into parts so that the individual […]
I was sent this shirt years ago by a friend. I told him “I don’t wear T-Shirts and I don’t think you can wear a shirt with your own face on it.” He said, “If you wear it ironically, you can wear anything.” Well, a few years later I was wearing it because I’d lost […]
When I first announced my intention to engage in a 30 Day Off-Grid/Lock Down Challenge, some people scratched their heads. “How would this be different than how you normally live?” “Won’t this be easy for you?” No. It will be different than how I normally live, and it will NOT be easy. The scenario is […]
Michael Bunker discusses a trip to town, toilet paper realities, and ways to identify people who you should mark and avoid in a crisis.
I want to tell you a story about my wife. You can accuse me of anything you like, and many people do, (OH MAN, but don’t they?) but my wife is one of the most honest people I ever met. We’ve been together 30 years and married for 28 years this month. I remember we’d […]
Sunday (Yesterday) was the beginning of my fourth week on my 5 month fitness mission, so I thought I’d keep a short journal of the day to share here. I mentioned in my original post on this mission that I weighed 224lbs fifteen years ago when I was in my 30s and we had just […]
I am a few days into the third week of my 5-month fitness mission. If you haven’t heard me explain what I’m doing and why, I made a video at the very beginning of my adventure: I’ll be putting up a new, updated video on my YouTube channel soon. If you aren’t subscribed to my […]
I met Jonathan Maberry, author and comics writer extraordinaire, when we were both on a worldbuilding panel at DragonCon in 2014. Today, I had the great pleasure of watching the new Netflix series VWars (based on his work,) starring Ian Somerhalder, Adrian Holmes, Peter Outerbridge, Kyle Harrison Breitkopf, Jacky Lai and Kimberly-Sue Murray, and I’m […]
I want to scream at that tiny percentage of ivory tower critics that this is a cosmic horror picture with Nic Cage that is Lovecraft and Richard Stanley and you are watching it at midnight at a genre film festival surrounded by goths and people with face tattoos and three inch wide ear implants and Doc Brown haircuts and wearing cravats who just drank the bar at Alamo Drafthouse dry. What were you expecting? Why are you even here?
I get asked all the time who my favorite currently active writer is. Hand’s down it is my friend Nick Cole. And no, not because he’s my friend. I made that determination when I read Old Man and the Wasteland back before we became friends, when that book was an Indie phenomenon, before it got […]
