By Jason Louv, posted on October 31, 2012


It’s less than two months prior to the “End of the World” on December 21, 2012.

Butterfly Dreams — Everything Connects

By Valkyrie Ice, posted on October 29, 2012

Requiem For Nanny

By Valkyrie Ice, posted on October 22, 2012

I have often been asked why I desire to live indefinitely. I’ve been told by many that they simply cannot understand why I would want to continue living when the world is so full of pain. And in some ways, I can see their point. Life is sadness, it is pain, and it is suffering. […]

By R.U. Sirius, posted on October 9, 2012

While I mostly employ a playful, self-deprecating voice throughout the upcoming epic combined memoir and as-told-to history of MONDO 2000, I’ve been advised that — somewhere toward the beginning of the book — I should let people know just how brightly the MONDO star shined .  Here then is a segment from the chapter, “Mutant Glory: […]
