16h36 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 28 DECEMBER 2011: I suppose there must be some of you readers, especially so via Entrecard, who are wondering if Your Correspondent is somehow still around in the face of this holiday-season hiatus and, hence, still has a few things worth saying. Glad to oblige in any event, for such among you asking.

In any event, there were dinners here in the Winona community on Christmas Eve (turkey a...

18h30 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 21 DECEMBER 2011: Not many are aware of it, but today starts the one-year countdown before what some misguided or unbalanced elements of the community see to be The End of the World As We Know It on 21 December 2012.

Which, as it turns out, is actually the reset of the Mayan calendar cycle.

And it seems those who are especially interested in seeing the world fall apart in one year's time f...

Never mind, of course, that I haven't had much call from you readers about blog-related questions i...

18h36 UTC; MONDAY, 19 DECEMBER 2011: In case you've yet to hear the news by now, it's that North Korea (or, as they officially prefer to style themselves, the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea") officially announced this morning that their "Great Leader," Kim Jong Il, died Saturday morning local time aboard his official train (he has this phobia of flying, a trait from his late father, "Eternal Leader" Kim Il Sung) from what official media claimed was "great mental and ph...

16h39 UTC; SUNDAY, 18 DECEMBER 2011: So which exactly is the more correct of these GOP Presidential wannabes vis-a-vis attacks on each other: Ron Paul telling Jay Leno on The Tonight Show the other night that Michelle Bachmann "hates Muslims" ... or Ms. Bachmann's retort suggesting that Paul's Libertarian-driven socioeconomic agenda would hurt the Nation?

Or is it possible that both may be correct, and not even know it (let alone the Great Unwashed Masses hard-wired in their ...

18h13 UTC; FRIDAY, 16 DECEMBER 2011: In noticing the image as leads off today's essay here (via NewsCorpse.com, know), Your Correspondent is reminded of a fascinating period of Canadian publishing history coincident with World War II, as chronicled by Library and Archives Canada in their archived online collection entitled Tales from the Vault! Canadian Pulp Fiction, 1940-1952; such, it turns out, having to do in large measure with a desire to protect Canada's balance of payments with the Uni...

Open Letter to certain Trolls of the Santa Clarita, formerly of Magic Mountain themselves

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Sunday, December 11, 2011,


15h57 UTC; SUNDAY, 11 DECEMBER 2011: Before I begin this post, readers, a short note of explanation is in order: Your Correspondent acknowledges something of a secret and yet longstanding affectation to the onetime Troll mascots of the Magic Mountain theme park of the Santa Clarita Valley north of Los Angeles, now part of the Six Flags group. Mostly in his mind, though, largely in a mix of dreams and fantasies as simmer in his dyslexic, psychoemotionally-scarred mind from time to time even th...

17h47 UTC; THURSDAY, 8 DECEMBER 2011: When you get right down to it, reader, certain specimens of conservative prolefeed are probably engaging in over-indulgence themselves vis-a-vis their supposed ability and powers to foretell what may happen to Our Beloved and Holy Land as much as a year hence--and that same could be preempted, as it were, by Reclaiming AmeriKKKa to Her Rightful Place of Precedence Among the Nations As Divinely Ordained (which sounds right up there with certain specimens o...
