Introducing: Tenebris Veritatis – Looking for Role Models in All the Wrong Places

Telling you to Do More & Require Better one line at a time with his introductory piece: Looking for Role Models in All the Wrong Places. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! I grew up listening to rap, in my house there was not a day that went by where my mom was not playing artist like: Tupac, N.W.A, WU Tang clan, Run DMC, and others.

New Reason #1 Why I’m Not Having Children

New Reason #1 Why I’m Not Having Children

Yeah, I’ve got a pretty lengthy list of reasons why children won’t be coming out of my physical person… before recently, this one didn’t even come in above proving wrong all the people who insisted “You’ll change your mind when you get older…” or “you’ll see when you fall in love…” As if there’s no such thing as a man who doesn’t want children or as if my age had anything to do with my decision. Pfft. Anyway, you’re probably wondering why this plane will not be receiving the blessing that would be my offspring. Well, to put it simply, its because Read more »

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Them Dresses Though… *Face Palm*

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Them Dresses Though… *Face Palm*

Let’s talk current events. Why… when there are so many more important things going on in the world worth discussing… is my Facebook feed full of posts about the dresses celebrities wore to their respective awards shows? Why are people really wasting energy asking entertainers to speak out about issues that have nothing to do with what we keep them around for: entertainment?

Have we really become so… addicted to entertainment that we can’t even stand up for an issues without having Read more »

Note from your favorite Super villain: Harsh truth is more than a hashtag (part 1)

Today we’re going to forgo the newly often appearing pics and video for a select couple of important images, and lots and lots of me. Why? because honestly the entire idea of this still being a thing has pissed me off so much I had to stop myself from jumping down someone’s throat in polite company over the weekend. The internet is a weird place, so getting under my skin when I’m watching the fight with friends is not an easy thing. Anyway, we’ll get to that in a moment. First up I want to talk to you about more Read more »

Memories of My Dad: The Eulogy

Memories of My Dad: The Eulogy

Dads are never perfect. They make mistakes. They forget. They lie. Some of them aren’t present at all. Mine wasn’t always the Dad I wanted, but the best thing about him was that he was always the one who wanted me. I wasn’t born to him; he isn’t biologically responsible for my existence. He’s the father who met me as a baby and has claimed me unabashedly and unashamed as his own ever since. When my mother left him, and he went crying to the police because she was taking his children away, they looked at my brother and said Read more »

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice “It was all a dream. I used read word up magazine.” I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting. When this all began it was an idea. The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by Read more »
