Weekend Open Bar: The Shape Of Things To Come


LIGHT YOUR HAIR ON FIRE AND SCARE YOUR LOVED ONES WITH POLEMICAL MUTTERINGS DENOUNCING THE ELDER GODS! It’s the only way to truly appreciate this column. With your heresy and their tears upon your soul! This is Weekend Open Bar! The weekly weekend column for us weakened weary existential wobblers. We gather around the bar, haphazardly hobbling up to stools. We share what we’re going to be doing across the next two days. Be it food we’re going to eat. Be it mind-enhancing chemicals we’re going to be ingesting. Be it loved ones we’re going to be spending time with. Whatever you’re up to! Share it! Whatever you’re thinking about! Spill it!

Monday Morning Commute: Livin’ for Sprayin’


My name is Rendar Frankenstein and I’m the host of the soiree that is the MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE! At the beginning of every workweek, I take off my conformity-jacket so that you can peek at the heart on my sleeve. But the Hypernerd Realm is far too vast for one man to map on his own, so I’m going to need a little help. After you check out my methods of leveling-up, hit up the comments section and share yours.

This is about sharing ideas, the most human activity of all.

So let’s dance, you grubby fucks.
