toxic plutonium rat urine!

December 21, 2016


Banksy Rat
Once upon a time an excitable friend sent me an email forward.

“Toxic rat radioactive urine on Coca Cola cans killing people!”

He was worried about my health. I drink a lot of Coca Cola. He meant well.

He was not happy with me when I said, “You know, rat urine is not toxic or radioactive right? Gross, yes, but not toxic or radioactive.”

I just saw a link on Facebook about 10 year olds leaving the Catholic Church. “10 year olds leaving the Catholic faith!” Very excitable yes?

The article says these 10 year olds [who are in 4th grade or some such] are leaving the Catholic faith because of what they learned in High School and University.

You guys all know 10 year olds are not in high school or university right?

They are in fucking grammar school!

There is a point at which, if you are not on a 3rd grader’s playground [or a 3rd grader] you are supposed to assume the mantle of adulthood and logic.

That’s not asking a lot people.

Rat urine is not poisonous. Or radioactive. Gross, yes. Poisonous or radioactive? Not.

10 years olds do not attend high school and university classes.

Not in any universe I attended grammar school in any way.



Stop. Think.

For fuck’s sake.

norma talmage max!

October 30, 2016

This is really fun to me. I posted this photo [which originally featured silent film star Norma Talmage] saying, Oh yez, that is what I want to be. Then I got taunted. So I photoshopped me into the photo.

[I don’t really use Photoshop. I hate Photoshop. But it has become a verb easier to use than, what? Graphics manipulation?]


Max: Bow, Puny Weeklings!

Bow! Bow! Bow before me, puny mortals! Yay!


photo day!

@NWSFortWorth Hates Austin

September 4, 2016

UPDATE: Well this is annoying. It turns out the Twitter weather accounts are EXACTLY like television cable companies and they say things like “we don’t service your area” because — they don’t “service” your area. So you don’t even go on their maps when they report the weather.

I hate being wrong.

Oh well.

My bad, @NWSFortWorth carry on.

September is mildly crazed because I have two weeks off in late August early September between AFW classes to do just about everything I don’t have time to do while AFW classes are in session. So, it’s time off — with no time off.


This is not a bad thing. Part of what I need to do between classes is re-watch movies for classes and such. And also catch up on movies. Oh the horror! [Not really. This is part of the best part of my job.]


Classes do start back up September 13th and I should tell you about those. On the horizon, High Concept Writing AND The First 30 Pages. You should check them out.
