Digital Gentrification – Video Games Are Too Real

Final Fantasy XIV is a weird game. It’s an MMORPG with a strange economy. Almost everything is worthless. It’s barely worth collecting and selling items. But – you need to if you want the most important thing. Real Estate. Final Fantasy XIV has artificially limited real estate plots in each region. So on a server … Read moreDigital Gentrification – Video Games Are Too Real

Lester Gaba – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Lester Gaba is nuts. But he’s my kind of nuts. Lester was a weird man. A profoundly strange man.

But old creepface up there decided that he would craft himself the hottest, best, and most … Read moreLester Gaba – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Monoculture Part 2- China’s Brilliant Plan For World Domination

I have a friend who is a local artist. She designs sells cool witchy stuff at reasonable prices. It’s hip and usually ahead of trend, and she’s incredibly talented and driven.

Before we start this, please go visit … Read moreMonoculture Part 2- China’s Brilliant Plan For World Domination

Monoculture – The Crushing Death of Everything, Part 1

There is a lot of romanticism of the past. I wonder if it was just as hard to find unique and colorful pieces back then, but archival evidence says it’s not. In Sears catalogs and local show rooms, there were dozens of color options for everything ranging from couches to refrigerators. Every brand had it’s … Read moreMonoculture – The Crushing Death of Everything, Part 1

Esteban – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Editor’s note: I have done zero research for this article. Everything I say is 100% made up and probably definitely true. Sometimes Bachelor Uncle’s have a lack of self awareness. Some people find it easy to be confident when they don’t look at themselves critically. Esteban is a giant goofball weirdo who turned a stupid … Read moreEsteban – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

My Dog – Mr. Feeny – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Today is a “fuck it” kind of day. It’s November. It’s getting cold. I’m annoyed and in a shitty mood. So here’s a cute fucking dog. Dog’s are the best because no matter what, they’re the best friends. They don’t offer you shitty advice or bury you with their own problems. They don’t have other … Read moreMy Dog – Mr. Feeny – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Landlord Fuckery: A Tale of Two Shitties – WTF Wednesday

Fuck Your Landlord – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

Did you know that your apartment/rental home … Read moreFuck Your Landlord – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

The Opulence of Art Deco – Detroit Edition – WTF Wednesday

Detroit needs a PR team. The whole fucking city. This place has been the butt of jokes my entire life. From Eminem to Insane Clown Posse, Detroit has been portrayed as a festering cesspit of white trashiness, rampant violence, mismanaged government and urban blight. A city so shitty that buying a house here was akin … Read moreThe Opulence of Art Deco – Detroit Edition – WTF Wednesday

An Ode to the Den – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

Fuck the term “man cave”. I hate the man cave for so many reasons. First of all, man caves seem to be part of heteroterrified bro culture. They spend all this time watching dudes in spandex play cuddleball on Sunday afternoon, but can’t tell their friends they love them. Miss me with that man cave … Read moreAn Ode to the Den – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

Oh God. Make It Stop. Please. No. – WTF Wednesday

Are you an evil wizard who lives in a spooky castle and wants to destroy all the light in the universe?

It’s the … Read moreOh God. Make It Stop. Please. No. – WTF Wednesday

Jim Henson – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

This week’s pick is pretty obvious. There’s been so many things written about Jim Henson, that there’s no possible way I could do him justice. I will however speak about one thing that I never hear discussed about his personal style. Like Iris Apfel, Jim Henson’s work tended to be very maximalist. His sets were … Read moreJim Henson – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

A Day of Nothing: A Bachelor Uncle Micro-Story

Todd’s Astro Van always needed a few minutes to warm up after a long shift at the video arcade. The engine roared to life like a tiger, but loped along like a narcoleptic three legged dog as it idled. The interior smelled like a poorly tuned boat on the first day of spring. He pushed … Read moreA Day of Nothing: A Bachelor Uncle Micro-Story

Hidden Monsters – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

When making a case for something, there is a trope called the “Current Year Argument” which basically means nothing. The current year argument is essentially stating the year that it is, and why something is the way it is. Like “It’s 2019, why can’t I find a new pink fridge!” Some argue that the current … Read moreHidden Monsters – Bachelor Uncle Sunday

Should Architects Be Allowed To Sue Landlords?

There’s a small apartment complex here in Phoenix that still carries remnants of it’s unique charm from the 1960’s. These swanky apartments were the peak of masculine modernity in their day. It’s a shame that you don’t see people designing for this kind of lifestyle anymore. Other than the cookie-cutter “urban loft”, there isn’t anything … Read moreShould Architects Be Allowed To Sue Landlords?

Paul Alexander – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Disney owns everything now. They own Marvel. They own Star Wars. They own the Muppets. Disney has everything and it kind of sucks. Science fiction used to be a fantastical place, full of wonder and magic. It was creative and colorful and fantastic. Look at this guys house. He’s got an ultra-wide TV, with a … Read morePaul Alexander – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Logan 5 – Bachelor Uncle of the Week

Logan’s run is one of the most R-rated PG movies ever made. Nudity? CheckViolence? CheckDrugs? CheckCoked out Farrah Fawcett? Cheeeeeeeeck.
