Everything about metaverse looked awful from the onset, and its ad campaign has done nothing but hint at the inevitability of some sort of bleak, sexless dystopia in which human beings, desperate for real interaction, walk around with plastic boxes strapped to their faces seemingly unaware that what they seek requires them only to breakContinue reading “The Metapocalypse”

Who’s Afraid of ChatGPT?
…if you’re reading this, you probably like human beings with human problems and dumb meat brains, which is what I provide: dumb meat.
Race and Dungeons and Dragons: An Unsolicited Opinion – Part 2
When someone’s response to “Black Lives Matter” is “there’s no such thing as race,” you can go ahead and move on with your life because that person literally farts in the bath tub and bites the bubbles.
Race and Dungeons and Dragons: An Unsolicited Opinion – Part 1
The scholarship and culture to which I personally am responding… is still undergoing earth-shaking change. Tolkien… was being quite progressive by suggesting elves, humans, dwarves, and shire-folk could live happily together… but…that is through a contemporary lens problematic.

Back in the day, my old entertainment standby and Web 1.0 blogspiration, Suck.com, ran a quiz on “geekiness.” It wasn’t a real quiz or anything, not like Facebook has quizzes or what have you – this was post-irony, pre-earnestness, mostly sarcastic Web 1.0 territory, before 9/11 but after grunge. It was the kind of quizContinue reading “SSS Archive – 5 February 2010”
