“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

You know you’ve arrived when…

Most scammers are not exactly known for subtlety when sending out their fairly naked attempts to get you to fork over your hard-earned money to them. The most hilarious ones always involve some Nigerian who apparently stopped studying English at about the 5th Grade...
Life isn’t supposed to imitate art like that

Life isn’t supposed to imitate art like that

Sometimes you see a story in the news where you think to yourself, “the people behind that idea cannot possibly be so stupid as to turn that into reality, right???”. And then you read on a little bit, and you realise that not only are they that stupid, but...
Hark now, hear, the Dark Lord sings

Hark now, hear, the Dark Lord sings

Those of us who have followed Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day the Most Merciless and Terrible for any significant length of time, are well aware of both his reputed and actual polymath abilities. This is a man who has done far more in his...
Let there be carnage

Let there be carnage

No, not the movie, I’m not bothered about whatever Sony and Marvel have cooked up together in terms of a sequel to the, quite enjoyable, Venom movie. I’m talking here about the latest trailer to drop from Amazon’s The Grand Tour, which showcases the...
Bye-Bye Birdy!

Bye-Bye Birdy!

Of all of the American holidays, Thanksgiving was always my favourite while I was living there. It is a demonstration of everything that is best about America, and not even the best attempts of the woke wankers to disrupt it by peddling very stupid narratives about...
The world according to Yakko

The world according to Yakko

Those of you who grew up during the 1990s may remember a certain Warner Bros. animated show called The Animaniacs, directed and produced by Steven Spielberg. As you might expect, given the golden age of animation we lived through back then, with Saturday morning TV...
Happy HELLOWEEN 2021

Happy HELLOWEEN 2021

Well, it’s that time of year again – where kids wander from house to house dressed up in adorable costumes to beg for candy, and where adults get dressed up in genuinely absurd costumes to ask for… well, a very different kind of candy, especially...
Gingervitis treatment

Gingervitis treatment

This one goes out to Dire Badger and all of my other readers who suffer from severe gingervitis – it consists of redheaded green-eyed (I think) Russian guitarist Alyona Vargasova doing her thing: OK, yeah, she’s GOOD. And very obviously classically...
Big lizard and big monkey go BOOM

Big lizard and big monkey go BOOM

Back when Warner Bros. dropped the Godzilla vs Kong film trailer on YooToobz, I reacted with a snort of derision. It seemed to be too stupid for words – a really big dumb loud monster flick that made even Godzilla: King of the Monsters look sensible and sane by...
Didactic Mind is getting a memory wipe

Didactic Mind is getting a memory wipe

After more than 8 years of writing, plenty of terrific articles, lots of seriously HAWT chicks, and some epic moments on this ‘ere very ‘eavy, very ‘umble site full of rants and tumbleweeds, I am sorry to say that we must part ways, you and I. You...
