Overhead in the checkout line

May 20th, 2016 by Vader

From His Majesty, who was looking with distaste at the racks full of tabloids:

Sigh. I’m so grateful I’m not a celebrity. They seem to have very difficult lives.

Well, they seem to have a lot of First World problems, anyway.

“Sinners in the hands of an angry Gaia”

April 13th, 2016 by Vader

… These are people suffering from a form of phantom limb syndrome. Instead having had a leg chopped off that they can still feel, it is their sense of the divine that has been amputated. The result is this weird nature cult run by billionaires.

Nudity as status signaling

April 07th, 2016 by Vader

Nudity is vulnerability. To go nude before millions is to signal one’s relative invulnerability.

Trigger warning: Kardashians are mentioned in the article. (Really, how could it be otherwise?)

High tea versus low tea

April 04th, 2016 by Vader

The distinction is the opposite of what I expected. I suppose that comes with not being a tea drinker, nor British.

Delicacy can have a power of its own

March 26th, 2016 by Vader

… I remember an interview in London Magazine with Dylan Thomas, Welshness incarnate. This was at a time more verbally puritanical than ours, and the interviewer reported that he had asked Thomas his views on Welsh nationalism and that “his answer consisted of three words, two of which were ‘Welsh nationalism.'”

“The Cloud People And The Ground People”

March 11th, 2016 by Vader

More thoughts on the theme that we have the worst elite in our history.

Take the time to click through some of the links. Particularly the link on things overhead at Whole Foods.

Christmas seems to bring out the child in all of us.

So perhaps it should not have surprised me to find His Majesty playing with Tinker toys this morning.

A perfect description of where sexual libertinism actually leads

October 25th, 2015 by Screwtape

You spiritually inferior naifs.

You quoted a certain Mollie Hemingway that

The lack of any naked ladies in the pages of Playboy is a perfect description of where sexual libertinism actually leads.

Should you be so lucky. Should you be so lucky, pathetic fools!

Angina Monologue 23

October 21st, 2015 by Vader

His Majesty has been somewhat sullen at breakfast lately. Part of it was the widespread perception in the media that Cthulu did better than His Majesty in the last debate. Part of it was the season of the year: I think His Majesty suffers from a touch of SAD (Sith Affective Disorder), which flares up around this time of year, but usually passes around early January. And I figured part of it was that the Imperial tummy has been unhappy. For several days, His Majesty could hardly choke down his meals, which left him feeling bloated and suffering with heartburn for hours afterwards. He convinced himself that it was gastroparesis, which he knows has been making life miserable for a young friend of mine.

Playboy is going PG-13

October 14th, 2015 by Vader

The lack of any naked ladies in the pages of Playboy is a perfect description of where sexual libertinism actually leads.
