Urban Survival Guide in Big Cities (Total Societal Collapse, Anarchy, & Disasters)

Urban Survival Guide in Big Cities (Total Societal Collapse, Anarchy, & Disasters)

This e-zine was issued by Cybertek Electric: and “Urban Survival” is written by Douglas P. Bell

To start with, let’s get over the idea that all survivalists are going to get out of “the city” in time to set up a “survival retreat”. Not all survivalists are going to have the money, time or inclination to leave the city life and move to the middle of nowhere. First off, leaving your job and having no money will doom you faster than anything you can think of!

Dave & Buster’s: Neo-Fascists or just Texas-Style Screws?

Saturday, June 13th, 2020 by Merchant of the Agora

Dave & Buster’s: Neo-Fascists or just Texas-Style Screws?

This e-zine was originally written on 1994 by Jeff Koyen

I sometimes wish that I didn’t use vulgar language so often; I’ve become jaded & desensitized to the impact of obscenity. The English language simply doesn’t contain some of the words I need.

Specifically, the words I need to convey my utter disgust and contempt for a place called Dave & Buster’s, located on the waterfront here in Philadelphia. Based in Texas, D&B’s has opened a couple of these places across the country. Basically, it’s a Chuck-E Cheese with liquor; a giant arcade with Bennigans-style bars and food. They cater to the white 20-something crowd that wants to go out, have a safe time and not question their hosts.

Legend of The Deep Sea Black Carpet From DiverAnon (Giant Sea Anemones & The Bloop)

Saturday, June 6th, 2020 by Merchant of the Agora

Legend of The Deep Sea Black Carpet From DiverAnon (Giant Sea Anemones & The Bloop)

These are stories from DiverAnon discussing potential biological origins of the bloop or other unidentified sea sounds, the black carpet, and generally just what bizarre organisms may still be lurking undiscovered. It’ll be a long time before the sea gives up all it’s mysteries after all.

This next story is supposedly bonafide true- taken from the journal of a now deceased biologist/researcher. I haven’t seen the pages of the journal myself, but I’m working on getting them sent to me if possible. I’ll share them with you if I ever manage to get my hands on them. For now, enjoy an abridge version.

Vaporwave Album Review: INTERNET CLUB – REDEFINING THE WORKPLACE

Thursday, May 28th, 2020 by Merchant of the Agora

If a major conceptual component of vaporwave is hyper-realism, then REDEFINING THE WORKPLACE is one of its greatest practitioners. Released in January 2012, Robin Burnett’s sixth album as INTERNET CLUB elicits the perfectly sterile and sterily perfect office environment of enterprise millennialism in seventy-five minutes. Here, the grass is the same green, the lights are the same white, and the sky is the same cloudless blue; an exercise in gorgeosity,1 but without the depth or spice that gives gorgeosity its meaning. Everyone can succeed here if they work hard, and why wouldn’t they?

Missing 411, Multidimensional Beings explained in Fairie Folklore

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 by Merchant of the Agora

Missing 411, Multidimensional Beings explained in Fairie Folklore

In this post, I am going to argue that this phenomenon is caused by fae, or fairies. Fae are generally said to kidnap or coax people into the Land of Faerie where, depending on the type, they may throw lavish festivals for the human, or enslave and/or feed off the person. Sometimes both.

WORLD CITIZENSHIP IN THE UNITED NATIONS: NEW WORLD ORDER

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020 by Merchant of the Agora

WORLD CITIZENSHIP IN THE UNITED NATIONS: NEW WORLD ORDER (February 24, 1997)

From

Ret. Col. Roberts

To fully understand the planning behind the United Nations prior to 1945, we should look more closely at the FREE WORLD ASSOCIATION, which had such close ties to our own State Department. The organization, through its publication, FREE WORLD, made no effort to hide the fact that they were planning a world organization, with powers to enforce international decrees, and that the sovereignty of nations could no longer be allowed to stand in the way of this lofty goal.
