Tool dependence

Tool dependence makes passive, sexless drones, or other words, 'makes Jack a dull boy'. More cryptically: Use a tool, be a tool.

The effect is unequal with respect to the genders. Women are more naturally fitted to be good little worker bees. For men, tool dependence  means degradation and emasculation.

Of course, the great meta-tool is the mind/body split, the human evolutionary step that gave birth to all subsequent tools. Most consider this an advance. I don't.

What was the first physical tool, I wonder? Was it the death-dealing thigh-bone shown at the beginning of Kubrick's "2001"?

The Pork-n-beans doctrine

I am the chief architect and promulgator of the Pork-n-beans doctrine. A doctrinal urinal.

Razorcake review

HERE HAVE A TURD, $?, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 20pgs.
One man’s short anecdotes—not reliving the glory days of an angsty-hardcore teenage to young adult life—but short excerpts reliving some seemingly small moments and relationships that, over time, turned one lonely old man into one lonely old anarchist. What follows are a series of hyper-condensed declarations painting modern society as a dangerous and self-destructive machine. Suffice it to say it is nothing we haven’t heard, especially in the punk/DIY community, but I did enjoy the way they related to his life’s narrative. The true stories of a teenage “sidekick” to a drugged-out degenerate in the 1960s might be something I never get to read about in a zine, and I’m hoping this is a pessimistic view. The photos inside are suggestive and disturbing and perfect, and not something I would ever want to take with me and read on the bus because I don’t like to talk to strangers when I commute. The cover alone is a real conversation starter. I kinda love the cover. –Miss Simon Sotelo (SidClark1953@gmail.com)

Prof. von Pork-n-beans

Seems like a good pen name. I'd try something with Porky, such as Prof. Porky or Porky for Short, but Porky Pig just looms way too large in my mind.
