Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Redundant Much?

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Redundant Much?

Listening to this one–now months later–I feel myself getting just as pissed off as I was the morning I recorded it. First, its been months now, as opposed to weeks, but I have read over several of my pieces–and other WDDIJ pieces–since this was recorded. There are more than a few recurring themes. It seems like everywhere I turn, I read and see more of the same. It’s like the world has become a broken record.

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Another One… A Letter to the Media

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Another One… A Letter to the Media

This week’s planned discussion is being preempted because another ass-hat with a gun decided that he wanted to die but that he wasn’t going to screaming, crying, and alone the way he came in. This is my appeal to the media. Dear story tellers of the mainstream media; Please don’t give this shit head even one more second of coverage. No interviews with neighbors or family members talking about how stressed or how he was such a nice guy. No commentary about his mental un-health. Nothing about his childhood, family history, or career. Let forget his name and let him 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? Why are we looking to otherwise insignificant and irrelevant people for guidance on things that are very important and significant? Have we really become so… addicted to entertainment that we can’t even stand up for an issues without having Read more »

Burn Baltimore Burn!

Burn Baltimore Burn!

Special Report: Baltimore is burning…again? Now that you have some starter music, let’s do this. Baltimore So outside of the people who only associate the city with The Wire, most folks act as though it is just another place on the east coast. But this city has a long history of being a powderkeg. So first up we had the 1968 riots. Now obviously this was one of many riots following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luthor King Jr. Across the country these riots were not only responses to the assassination, they were also the boiling over of animous between Read more »

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 »

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Break Time

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: Break Time

Have you ever been so tired and fed up with reality that you knew if you didn’t disconnect from reality, you’d be calling up your best friend to help you hide the bodies? . . . I eL-Oh-Vee-Ee LOVE the Legends of Zelda franchise. I recently went back to replay Majora’s Mask, spent 4 days stuck in the water temple/dungeon (friggin vortex of water with the gears and… anyway), but felt like a BOSS just because I finally acquired the Postman’s Hat… my fellow LoZ fans know my struggle… So I’m in the middle of kicking ass and collecting rupees when I Read more »
