I don't know what you ladies said to each other in your younger years as light-natured ribbing. Hell, I'm not even sure if ladies do light-natured ribbing. But for us fellas, the list of jokes when you're young and poking fun at each other is pretty short : you masturbate too much you can't "get" a woman (see #1) your dick is tiny you don't last long in bed you're gay (much more common pre-2000 compared to today) It ...

Tina : The Pimp of Alt Porn

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
This is part of a series of posts about an internet-based live TV talk show I created/hosted called Aural Salvation. Reading about the origin of the show isn't required, but it might help give you some context. It would also help to know that I built up a large, enthusiastic audience by interviewing naked alt-porn girls, and a MySpace celebrity gone actual-celebrity. Since I already had a weekly drop-in to ...

Jeffree Star’s First Interview

Filed Under : Weird Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 8 minutes
As part of a few days of early Aural Salvation stories that explain how my show rocketed up in (relative) popularity in a short time, I've explained its origin, the early awkwardness of having to fulfill interview duties from the guy whose time slot I overtook, how I captured attention with a nudity-laden alt-porn plug, and now I'll tell you about the most popular episode -- for ...

How I Met The GodsGirls

Continuing in a series of posts about Aural Salvation (I'll be doing one more post tomorrow, then getting into other stories before I return to these), in October 2005 I had found out about an upcoming little alt-porn site called GodsGirls.com that was getting flack from the Suicide Girls website. I found this out because, in the MySpace days, you'd see hot chicks promoting all kinds of weird shit on ...

3 Days of Awkward Interviews

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
In the first few weeks (maybe 2 months, actually) of Aural Salvation, I had to fulfill the interview obligations of my former co-host : Crazy J. Since I'd taken over his time slot and was, ostensibly, covering the same genre of music, bands who'd been expecting an interview with the station -- MusicPlusTV.com -- for whom I was hosting a show. I've known, and encountered, quite a few people in my life who ...

With Apologies to Matthew McGrory’s Family

Filed Under : Sad Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 9 minutes
As I mentioned in the origin story of Aural Salvation, Crazy J pulled a particularly shithead (bordering on inhuman) move on a grieving family of a semi-famous actor. That family is the one belonging to Matthew McGrory. The name might not sound familiar, but I guarantee you've seen some of his work. As far as I know, I was the last person to interview him before he died ...

There are some stories that, if I broke them up into serial stories, would end up being 20+ parts long. That's just silly. So, I'm doing some stories as sub-sets of other stories. This is one such story. Some people who read this blog, and who have patiently (and sometimes inexplicably) followed my "career" for many years, may remember a little internet-based TV show I used to write/host called Aural ...

(if you missed Part 1, you're gonna be confused) The conditions of my suspension were that I would be held accountable for all missed schoolwork, which I was to turn in upon my return to school. To facilitate this, my mom would swing by the school every few days and pick up assignments from my teachers. Because my mom was busy running classes of her own, there was no ...

I realize that, reading through some of these stories of my younger self, it might come off like I've been trying absolve myself of guilt and that I just conveniently "didn't know any better" when it came to the ability to fly, or nazi history, or semi-adult stories spit out from a vending machine, or things like that. I promise I'm just that dumb. Or, at best, ...

The Legend of Denny’s, Ireland, and Scotland

In my Sophomore year of high school, I was the first amongst my close group of friends to get a driver's license, and -- more importantly -- the first whose mom would actually lend out the car to them. Early on, I'd just pick up Nad and a few other friends, and we'd drive around throughout the early evening Phoenix streets with no particular place to go. Just ...
