Ebook  Update: Ivory Tower Satire, & a Bit of Poetry!

Ebook Update: Ivory Tower Satire, & a Bit of Poetry!

Two more satire ebooks are coming out on May 31. Pre-order now!

Firstly:

Professor Smiggles & The New Intellectual Warfare (Gang of Sneers Volume 2)
https://www.amazon.com/Professor-Smiggles-Intellectual-Warfare-Sneers-ebook/dp/B01F6CEBI8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1463842433&sr=8-4&keywords=wallace+runnymede
Yes, this is a series! For Gang of Sneers Volume 1, see our cuddly old UKIP ranter, Tarquin Binnett:
https://www.amazon.com/Tarquin-Binnetts-Englishmans-Common-Jamboree-ebook/dp/B01E4KJA5M

Professor Guru Angus Lenn(on/in)vedanta Smiggles of the Social Constructionist String Theory Department in Bushmills Metaphysical College cuts quite a dashing figure. This pompous intellectual knows well enough how to bamboozle myriad uneducated and uncultivated hoodlums: such as vicious Confederate collectivists, genially whimsical UKIP candidates, gutter tabloid hacks, and sexually frustrated campus liberation crusaders.

But after a few episodes of crisp and generous dismissal, the good Professor fades from view, and two rather disturbing fairy tales present a more disconcerting picture. London’s new addition to the crowded market of postmodern soap operas, and the unhappy tale of un-un-reconstructionism end the witty Parisian proceedings on a rather poignant and dispiriting note.

This second volume of Gang of Sneers also includes the book Wallace Runnymede & The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In & Out of Season. The latter is a reflexive non-fiction work which was originally published separately as an accompaniment to my novella The Great Flâneur Massacre, which is now being re-released on May 31 2016, simultaneously with Professor Smiggles & the New Intellectual Warfare.

And secondly:

The Great Flâneur Narrative
https://www.amazon.com/Great-Fl%C3%A2neur-Narrative-Wallace-Runnymede-ebook/dp/B01F7KM5WS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463842433&sr=8-1&keywords=wallace+runnymede

The ivory tower has been blessed with many decent scholars; but sadly, also with many ‘towering intellectuals.’ In this raucous romp through two ludicrous conferences at Prigley Uni, we encounter, among other delights, the intrusively concerned human rights fanatic Stamford Rhodes, the nauseating Helena Smotherington, the pathetic Stepton Coker, the utterly loathsome Skinner Green, and the pompously pedantic Professor Ernst. Admittedly, neither of the two conferences is short of genuine heroes either.

But just to make things that little bit more confusing, we also encounter the washed-up humanitarian pop star and general hateful, moneygrubbing chancer Klubber Bonez; as well as Bedford’s finest, the misanthropic and horrendously bigoted chat show host and transcultural sexual performance artist and erotic dialogue comedian Roger Pickering, aka Luvvie Vedanta!

Aside from these two works, which are satire, I have just released an epic spiritual odyssey in poetic form, entitled:

The Braying Angel: 12 Hours on the Pathway

This is being released by Pronoun: appearing on Amazon, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Google Play & Kobo. Some of the poems have appeared previously on Love Poetry and Universalist Friends.

See also, as always, my most recent new additions to my Youtube Channel. Finally, my blog has just got a new domain: http://wallacerunnymede.wordpress.com

So, happy (and enraged!) reading, everyone!

Leaked TTIP Treaty: U.S. Must Win the Eurovision Song Contest

Leaked TTIP Treaty: U.S. Must Win the Eurovision Song Contest

AMSTERDAM – According to secret terms of the TTIP treaty, recently leaked by Greenpeace Netherlands, the U.S. must finally be allowed to enter the Eurovision Song Contest.

“Excluding the U.S. from the Eurovision Song Contest is a clear violation of free trade,” said U.S. trade negotiator Mickey Cant. “Europe could use a little bit more American know-how when it comes to pop music. We are tired of being unjustly excluded.”

Additional leaked documents show that the European negotiators were “horrified” at the prospect of American pop bands entering the beloved Song Contest, with one French negotiator protesting that “American pop is even lower than kitsch and unworthy of Eurovision.”

Crack Bagans? Ghost Stalker Pushes Beloved Mask, Ford Ranger Off Cliff

Crack Bagans? Ghost Stalker Pushes Beloved Mask, Ford Ranger Off Cliff

MOUNT CHARLESTON, NV – Only hours before the series finale of his newest show Deadly Possessions was set to air, ghost hunting guru Zak Bagans could be found about 50 miles northwest of his Las Vegas museum; committing an act so unbaganslike that officials assume he was either under the influence of a mind altering substance or possessed by one of the spirits he has been molesting for so long.

Standing on the edge of a peak known as Masking Heights, elevated 9,281 feet above a rocky gorge, Bagans first tossed his beloved air mask over the edge before pushing his iconic, red 2012 Ford Ranger over and watching them both fall to their certain deaths.

In addition to the drug and possession theories, many have speculated that Bagans may be under an enormous amount of stress after a dismal first season in which he fulfilled his lifelong dream of opening a museum in downtown Las Vegas, filled with haunted and cursed objects he has collected through the years. The sixth episode in the first season is set to air on the Travel Channel tonight at 9:00pm est featuring objects that belonged to the deadly Dr. Jack Kevorkian and the late actress, Natalie Wood.

“The sheer hatred he showed towards that mask when throwing and then watching it fall to a horrible death… I’ve never seen that kind of sheer hatred before,” said park ranger, Jared Bulgovich, the sole witness of the ghastly act that has the ghost community shaken. “Everyone round these parts knows Mr. Bagans loves his air mask and is as shocked as I am!” Bulgovich added.

The co-host of the popular paranormal show Ghost Adventures, which has been on the air for 12 seasons, frequently gets criticized by viewers for over-wearing a protective mask with the intention of cleansing the

air he breathes. Certain situations, such as cave and old basement investigations, require the use of such a device; but when Bagans began wearing his mask all the time, questions immediately arose. Since then, he has interrupted a wedding to proclaim love to his mask and even a performance of the musical Cats, further progressing his maskness.

While the previous events seemed to be a mere infatuation of a man in love with a poly bi-carbonate plastic mold, the most recent event tells a tale of a man in need of some serious help.

No charges have been filed yet as Bagans has received comfort from close friends, relatives and the many spirits he has connected with over the years.

4K Glossy News PODCAST 042 (5-9-16)

4K Glossy News PODCAST 042 (5-9-16)

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with with with some more serious, kind of heavy stuff.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching “Glossy Podcast” or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching “Glossy News”.

Here are the topics covered in the the May 9th, 2016 edition.

* The pill addiction epidemic is sweeping the nation. Poly-drug overdose is killing more young people like Heath Ledger, Brittney Murphy, and most recently, a close friend of mine.

* How to save money on gas using supermarket rewards cards, even if you don’t have one. It’s surprisingly easy.

* Shocking new stats about HIV prevalence among American males, specifically in California, inlcuding some of the richest neighborhoods.

* It looks like I just got an acting job in an upcoming feature-length film… not video, a movie shot on actual film. The director has an actual budget and a YouTube channel with millions of views. I’ll update more later.

* Microsoft isn’t merely offering us all Windows 10 for free, they’re badgering the hell out of us to install it. Is it better? No, they’re not exactly claiming that, but it’s prettier. So based on that we should TOTALLY risk our entire systems just so they can sell us more crap we don’t need.

* Review of the ESPN film “30 for 30: Frightful Lies”. It’s very well made, as all the 30 for 30 series are, but it’s chilling and shocking. The criminal justice system is broken beyond repair when investigators, prosecutors and judges refuse to shut down trials even in the face of clear evidence of innocence.

End of the Gay Dinosaurs: Fox News Steals the March on Glossy News!

End of the Gay Dinosaurs: Fox News Steals the March on Glossy News!

What do Fox News folks think about homosexuality and the end of the dinosaurs? Will male-on-male love bring about the end of the human species, just as it ended the reign of the dinosaurs?

Bill O’Reilly

Well, who’s to say? I don’t know. Maybe they just got gay-feminist-transdarwinist-cultural-marxist-crony-socialist-union-thug-gun-hating-dino-flu.

I mean, hell, I’m just throwing that one out there! I never said I had all the answers.

“Crypto-Leftie Tabloids” Conspiracy Theory: John Gray & Richard Dawkins Respond

“Crypto-Leftie Tabloids” Conspiracy Theory: John Gray & Richard Dawkins Respond

A year ago, Glossy News recently gave you The Absolute Truth on how tabloid journalism in the UK works.

That’s right: my recent article on how “right-wing moral panic journalism” is actually a Trojan horse for “far-left-radical-deep-cover-subversion.”

Still, I thought I should ask a couple of scholars, because as is well enough known: Continue Reading

The Spectator are holding an ‘Offensive Erdogan Poetry Competition!’ Douglas Murray aptly notes:

The very possibility of putting someone on trial for being rude about Erdogan is as illiberal or rather anti-liberal as these things come.  It will be hardly more of a relief if he is found ‘not guilty’ than if he is found ‘guilty’. Continue Reading

Three More Satire Audio Podcasts! Dalai Lama, Evil Vatican Regime, God Versus Sideboobniks

Three More Satire Audio Podcasts! Dalai Lama, Evil Vatican Regime, God Versus Sideboobniks

I recently introduced my first satire audio podcast on Youtube! From this channel… Viewings are certainly climbing steadily.

My podcasts are not ‘regular’ at the moment, but I don’t think a regular schedule is necessary. It would certainly help though, and I will update you on that.

Here are the next three mp3s and video links. Remember, of course, to keep checking the pages of the recordings to find the (almost exactly) corresponding recording on my Satire Catastrophes site. (I’ve allowed myself a bit of creative license in my recordings!) The four videos so far are from my ebook I Shouldn’t Do God. Others will follow soon which are not from this ebook, nor even from the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes ebook series!

Firstly, the Dalai Lama, Canon Welby, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Bono (which one is the odd one out?) have a rather tangled interfaith dispute about a whole lot of bugger all. Bless our oul’ Bono lad; see this lad, he’s no Athanasius, so he’s not!

Dalai Lama Versus Archbishop

Next, a certain good Italian-American Catholic Democratic representative is horrified at the horrendous right-wing deviations of the evil Vatican regime. ‘We have to stop this wicked man! It’s the only Christian thing to do!’

(Don’t download if you’re in Cuba or North Korea, or indeed the evil Vatican regime…)

Evil Vatican Regime

Finally, the Episcopalians find themselves utterly unable to reach consensus!

Oo, shit! That one’s gettin’ real old…

….

Uh, wait, sorry! I meant, ‘The Episcopalians find themselves unable to reach consensus with the Wahhabis and the Southern Baptists! I mean, that’s a completely different thing… Right? Huh? Huh?

Ah, forget it! Just check out the video. It’s pretty middle-of-the-road, after all.

Really?

Well,no! Cos if you’ll believe that, you’ll believe anything!

Within reason, of course…

God Hates Sideboob

***

Keep watching the channel, and I’ll sneer you soon with some more dry, anarchic humor!

In particular, more news on my secret recording of an Angela Merkel telephone conversation ;)
