Happy Birthday Lena!

Today is my wife Lena’s birthday. I am of course tempted to talk at great length about how wonderful and special and smart and successful she is, but I won’t. It’s probably less interesting to you than it is to me and she fusses at me for making her cry whenever I get sappy anyway.

But I will say this… Lena, I love you more than any other thing in my life. Even though I feel like I can never repay you for all the things you’ve done for me, I’m also never going to stop trying. Though they may not realize it, anyone who comes to this site owes you a nod as well, since HOLE could never have happened, nor kept going for any time whatsoever, without your work and continued efforts.

So Happy Birthday, Baby — this is our day to celebrate you. Enjoy the fish tank, and I ordered the Wonder Woman DVDs. It’s all about YOU!


(Feel free to leave Webmistress Lena your birthday wishes below!)


In the General Assembly of the United Nations, the United States joined radical Islamist regimes and the Holy Catholic Church in affirming the illegality of homosexuality earlier this month, giving the tacit nod to the 80-odd countries that will throw you in jail for it, and the six or seven that will kill you forContinue Reading


What does it take to be RNC chairman these days? Don’t ask Chip Saltsman, would-be contender to the throne who sent a music CD to his RNC mates for Christmas with “racist comedy” songs like The Star Spanglish Banner, and Barack the Magic Negro. I didn’t figure that I could really discuss this intelligently without hearingContinue Reading


An animal center near Toronto caught fire and burned down a week ago, killing 100 cats, as well as a few dogs and some pet rats. The Toronto Fire Department said that the fire was started by mice chewing through the wires in the attic. The mice doubtlessly died in the fire as well. WhatContinue Reading


First, a funny (non-cutsie, no music, I know how some of you hate that) video to get you in the mood.   Merry Christmas! Today is a special Christmas-flavored blog all about my favorite time of year, Christmas! Yuletide! Winter Solstice! The time of year when I get presents!  Yippee! Of course, as I have observedContinue Reading


In 1962 Cardinal Alfredo Ottavini, the Secretary of the Holy Office in the Vatican, issued an edict to all clergy everywhere. This set of orders directed clergymen to keep any all investigations of sexual predation by clergy completely secret from the outside world (as well as the edict itself)… under pain of excommunication and damnationContinue Reading


  I am still waiting for my momma platy (tropical fish) to pop. She had babies about a month ago (or somebody did anyway…) but none survived. She’s big as fish houses now and you can see through her enough to make out the eyes of all the little baby fishies, which is a bitContinue Reading


If you can watch this entire video without smiling at least once, then you need to check your pockets and make sure your soul is the only thing missing. (BE WARNED, many people consider this video to be “cute,” and to have music that doesn’t match the action. If you think that could upset you,Continue Reading


I have a confession to make, and it’s one I’ve been trying to avoid. However, it’s just dishonest of me not to come clean about this to you, so no matter how unpleasant it is for me personally… I have to say it. A while ago I wrote this big blog post about how IContinue Reading


Has anybody out there tried any of these “Miracle Fruits?” It’s a small berry with a chemical that binds (temporarily) to your taste buds and makes anything acidic taste sweet. The Austin Chronicle says it makes “Tabasco taste like doughnut glaze, stout ales taste like chocolate milkshakes, and lemons and grapefruit taste like candy…” IContinue Reading
