4/1 International Rent Strike

Come April 1st, don’t pay jack shit on mortgages or rent until the government takes measures to make sure we don’t all die or go broke. A one time $2000 payment isn’t gonna float anyone for 3-18 months who didn’t already have the resources in the bank. You think cops are going to want to […]

A Public Call For the Immediate Resignation and Prosecution of All Senators Who Knew About COVID-19 And Gaslit the Public

An NPR report today revealed that GOP top brass knew about the seriousness of COVID-19 AKA Coronavirus for weeks/months and chose to only tell the truth to business leaders while telling dangerous lies to the public and refusing free testing kits from China. I am making a public call for all those Senators and House […]

Why Were Most of Joe Biden’s Victories in States With Widespread Voter Suppression Problems

Biden won 10 states on Tuesday: Alabama¬† * Arkansas¬† * Maine Massachussetts Minnesota North Carolina * Oklahoma * Tennesse * Texas * Virginia * A simple google search for “voter suppression” in many of these states turns up a lot of results. Given that Biden attracts a more conservative voter base than Sanders and voter […]

Biden’s Magical “Electability” is Magical Thinking

Why don’t the kids like Biden? Here’s why: Imagine you were on a boat that was rapidly capsizing. Now imagine the captain of the boat said the only reasonable course of action was to find out what the rapidly rising sea water wanted and compromise between the needs of it and the drowning crew. And […]

A Short Haiku For Bill Gates

In light of Bill Gates’ recent comments and the fact that its a cultural given that we hand free things to billionaires, I’ve written a haiku just for him. While I’ve inverted the normal 5-7-5 format, I think this poem still embodies the spirit of concision that animates the form. Without further ado: You have […]

Building the Perfect AV Set-Up On a Budget Part 2: Video

Yesterday we went over my budget picks for an audiophile stereo set-up using the stuff I actually have around and use. I spent $123. Lets see if we can beat this on video! In this post I’m including video devices including TVs, DVD, Blu-Ray, VHS and file playback. FLATSCREEN TV: Olevia 40 inch I got […]

Building the Perfect AV Set-Up On a Tight Budget Part 1: Audio

Here on WWM, we watch a lot of movies and I at least listen to tons of different kinds of audio recordings and play different types of old software looking for insight into the recent past and how we ended up here. When you spend that much time with media, a good playback set-up is […]

On Being a Millennial Turning 30

I have written two full length books and 160 articles for this website but I walk dogs for a living. Part of this was leaving college in the wake of the financial crash, part of this was refusing to water down my politics to suit an increasingly regressive employment culture, part of this was journalistic […]

It Can And Is Happening Here

I gave a quick talk about Occupy Wall Street to the Malta NY Rotary Club once. A man came up to me afterward. He looked like the aged Buster Keaton of The Railrodder and had made his living before he retired fixing CRT televisions. In the abstract I should have loved this guy. He came […]

An Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi

Dear Nancy, You keep saying now isn’t the time to impeach for reasons that apparently us mere mortals are too simple to understand. Or maybe you’re just bluffing because you don’t actually want to do anything. It can’t be because you’re busy working on some other agenda because all the Democratic party seems to have […]
