A new book series! Ages Of Irony is a very weird number of books about things that we do not understand yet but probably should. Ages Of Irony is a humorous climate fiction series that collides with science fiction stories and really questionable history books.
Ages of Irony will teach you the best way to leave the planet before it is destroyed by humans. In the process, you might even learn how to save the world. This book is mostly for humans on Earth.

The story starts here.
The old man sat at the tip-top of the large teardrop-shaped circle of friends. He looked out across the fire at his tribe. Their children ran between the curving corners of the cob houses. The kids shrieked in glee. Screaming and laughing, they played games without care. Skeletons of skyscrapers on the horizon stood silently opposing the sunset of the short solstice.
The old man still wondered why he was so lucky.
He tasted the sweet, earthy flavor rolling off of the bundles of drying…
Long before Europeans spread throughout the Americas, established cultures were thriving. A group of indigenous people built successful civilizations and traded goods across the northern plains. Before any reliable sources made contact, they all disappeared. Though some evidence of their existence remains today, the mystery of the Mississippians continues.
North of Mexico, several large cities were built and maintained by the group of natives known as Mississippians. Cahokia was one of the largest of these cities. Located in southern Illinois just across the river from St Louis, Cahokia was a major stop along the trade routes of the Mississippians.
This is a scientific test to determine if you are a weirdo, stargazer, or world ender. You might be all three if you are a mighty son of a gun. If you are a woman that is reading this, please refrain from sending me any more Vide Noir. I have enough kids already. If you don’t know anything about the band Lord Huron, then you will be confused.
If you are a world ender, then you should know which songs these signs are depicting. It gets progressively more difficult to understand this universe. …

We never could get the hang of Earth Day. Let’s be honest. We need to do better. I beg anyone who cares about the living things on this planet to take a moment and just listen.
The Earth gives absolutely zero fucks about life or what we do to it!
The Earth is a planet with a molten core of churning metals. This spinning dynamo creates a magnetic forcefield around an egg-shaped rock. This pretty neat magnetosphere protects us from constant radiation showers. The radiation comes from a bright yellow star that powers our planet. …
You might not have ever heard of the little Lord Huron collection called Mighty. That is why I am writing about it. Mighty is the very beginning of Lord Huron. They are a band I thoroughly enjoy. Their storytelling abilities are second only to their smooth soulful folk sounds. While Mighty is only four songs, there is a lot to love about this little package.
You can watch and listen to the videos below as I explain what I think they are about. The total length of these four songs is almost exactly twenty minutes and they are all worth…
This song is actually the beginning of one of my favorite albums of the millennium. This is part of a series of stories I am writing about the band Lord Huron. I am starting with the Lonesome Dreams album but we will do some dancing around. The first song on Lonesome Dreams is called, “Ends of the Earth.” I like to think of this song as a prologue to the album. It is a catchy western adventure tune set in the desert. Watch the video below and I will tell you what I know. …

That will never change. It is too heavy. It can not move. We are in a crunch. Oh well. Worry about it tomorrow. Don’t let it ruin your lunch.
Take a break.
Put on the brakes.
