  • Dystopia Arrives

    The dystopia genre has enjoyed a lot of attention the last decade with hits like The Hunger Games, Blade Runner 2049, and Automata as a few examples. To me, a dystopian film is set in the near future with a focus on society more than technology. In my late teens and early 20s I loved […]

  • Photos: Presidential Race Called / Denver Celebration

    I woke up this morning to the presidential race being called in favor of Joe Biden and started watching live feeds from around the country. After checking the Denver Channel 7 news feed from the helicopter I saw there were quite a few people at the capitol celebrating. Since I am fairly close I decided […]

  • CNN, the TSA, and the ‘Theatre’ of Terrorism

    News flash from CNN a few minutes ago: Terrorists may try to hide explosives in toothpaste or cosmetics tubes, U.S. warns airlines flying into Russia. A law enforcement source said the warning is based on new information and added that there is no known threat to the United States. Wait a minute! For ten years […]

  • Are we so desperate?

    The current state of U.S. politics is beyond dismal and entirely depressing. Our society only follows the corporate controlled ‘news’ channels that stump for their party-of-choice. Our congress is laughably ineffective in doing their job. The bi-partisan House/Senate can’t agree on anything, and little gets done in the pathetic number of days these overpaid politicians […]

  • America; Not a Country, a Business

    I watched “Killing Them Softly” a week or two ago. The movie got bad reviews, and I see why. All the right intentions, good cast, just fell short in many ways. The best part of the movie, comes in the last few lines delivered by Brad Pitt, after killing three people the previous 24 hours […]

  • The Madness after the Boston Madness

    The last few days have once again shown how utterly ridiculous parts of our society are. In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, we saw news outlets fumble over themselves, eager to announce the next terror, while feigning disgust. Another device found! A controlled detonation! No, a fire! CNN led the way in pathetic […]

  • Stand Your Ground

    The night started with a loud voice from outside, echoing between the buildings. Couldn’t see anyone from any window but it was definitely very close. Since it couldn’t be from the balcony or parking lot, and wasn’t the courtyard in the next building or mine, it had to be someone between the buildings but near […]

  • #138: The BATF

    [F.U.C.K. is an e-zine that I started on January 24, 1993 and ended on January 24, 2000. One concept is that articles should be timeless if possible, so they were not released with dates. As such, the date on this blog is not exact but I will try to use a date as close as […]
