for Success 9/18/00
Welcome to the

come to expect from Acid Logic.
On the main drag

itching for their six guns.

the art of accruing free music without shoplifting.
Devil and Davy Jones 7/13/00
Average looking guys
like myself are always taunted by good looking, charming pretty boys
who take our women, and worse, our beer. The epitome of such Romeos
is The Monkee's Davy Jones. Let's fix him, but good.
Spears VS Eminem for the Title of "Ruler of the Universe"
Sometimes I see Britney
Spears as a pop music princess, sometimes I see her as a talentless
whore. And some days I see Eminem as the last great rapper, other days
he's a misogynistic asshole. Which is which...?
Caps and Padded Bras 6/15/00
upon several recent conversations, I'm reminded that the human race
is still vainly protective of its physical flaws.
Ahh... if only I could relate.
Me for I Have the Power to Destroy You 5/25/00
passing year I become more aware of the fact that every generation must
watch the fruits of its culture destroyed by its sucessors.
the Love Virus 5/10/00

heavens to fulfill a deep, spiritual need?

For years hard rock and goth music have stood in opposite
corners, eyeing each other suspiciously. Can they be brought together
by a little thing called
Hitler Was an Alien (or, The Case Against MP3s) 4/13//00
After reading this you may say, "This has nothing
to with Adolph Hitler or aliens, it's simply a long winded rant against
the MP3 music format!" But look deeper, my friend. The truth is
not always obvious.
To the Multi-Talented 3/30/00
Don't you just hate people
who can do things better than you? Or worse, who people aren't as good
as you, but get more attention. Let's hate them together.
Another Acid Logic Column 3/9/00
It finally happened: I
ran out of things to say. So I thought I'd write about that.
- Notes From the Road
My recent train trip across the southwestern part of
the United States provided many musings. I'm collecting them here for
or Pokemon - After boarding the train in
Austin I was confronted by a Pokemon weilding youth. It led
me to many revelations about the state of toys in America.
Friends on the Train - The fun continued
as I conversed with a variety of individuals posing as sane.
First Rant of the Millenium 1/11/00
Since it turns out the world didn't end I suppose I should

line? Or are we all being subjected to more brainwashing from Madison
Hear it for Genetically Engineered Foods! 11/4/99
Continuing with my food theme, I address the weighty
matter of genetically altered fruits. (And I'm not talking about Michael
The Forgotten Condiment 10/18/99
Ahh, mustard... the sexiest of all sandwich dressings.

Letter writing is alive and well on the Internet. And

lots of sweaty, naked men.
Wars: The Phantom Menace - What Went Wrong? 8/14/99
We may never move forward as a society until this question
is answered. Fortunately, I have answered it. Feel free to begin worshipping
People's Misery 8/2/99
A wise philosopher once said, "When the going gets tough,
the tough get going." The rest of us just snivel and moan.
at Club Rock-Za 7/15/99
No matter where you go in the world, strip clubs are
all the same.
Hidden World of Airports 7/4/99
It's only after years of airline travel I've come to
see airports for what they really are: a paranoid, violent, sexual shagfest.
Against Boys 6/13/99
The battle of the sexes starts out on the playground
and continues up to the nursing home. Can't we all just get along?
the President's Women 6/2//99
I feel totally lame having to do this but I simply ran
out of time trying to come up with a column for this issue. Thusly I'm
presenting a "classic" Acid Logic from the early days of the Clinton
scandal. However, trust me, this one's pretty funny, I just read it.
So sit back and return yourself to a time when you actually had friends
saying "I really don't think he had sex with that women, Monica Lewinsky."
Star Wars Disappointments 5/15/99
It could be the greatest film ever. But what if...
Some of the Lesser Known Y2K Issues 5/3/99
What is needed in the current Y2k debate is a sound and
learned voice. Once again you're stuck with me.

They're happy, they're friendly, they're loved by children
worldwide... therefore they're perfect targets.
Love To Your Television
The only bumpersticker more annoying than "Perot '92"
are those "Kill Your Television" ones. This article denigrates this
new form of political activism.
Alternate Forms of Punishment for Clinton 1/15/99
Another Clinton article. Probably outdated by the time
you read this but worthwhile nonetheless.
Effects of Clinton-Vision 2/7/99
One of many articles taking the serious subject of impeachment
and reducing it to comedy-fodder.
Up With The Jonesboros
An amazingly cold-blooded (I was quite proud of myself)
and humorous article about the Joneboro massacre and the roles we expect
Being that the "Generation X" label will haunt me for
the rest of my life, I thought I'd put this down.
Let Me Kill You Pt. 2
A sequel to an article I did years ago, this one focuses
various scum who preach "Revolution" while driving to work in a BMW.
No tricks or hidden messages. This really is about my
love affair with the Purple one.

Schenker is God 10/11/99

rail thin agent of darkness.
