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!
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…)
Pre-order is over! Graveyard of the Pieties is finally launched at Amazon! This, my second Amazon Ebook, accompanies my rather dark short poetry collection, Foaming the Optics. Graveyard of the Pieties is the first volume of the Fatal Conceits ebook series; Fatal Conceits focuses on presumption, paternalism and various related topics.
Apologies for slight delay with the free Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes ebooks at some other outlets (the ones currently associated with Draft2Digital). The four volumes (including the brand new volumes #3 & #4) are currently under review and should be out by the time the article you’re now reading is out. If not, I’ll update you very soon! I’m publishing another article on the four ebooks anyway very soon…
So look out for that! And in the meantime, please enjoy the serial of the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes ebook series at my general satire site, Satire Catastrophes.
And please do see also my channel on Youtube, for audio versions of some of these stories! (I’m not happy with the graphics for Youtube so far; I’ll update the cover pictures to something less drab and more exciting in the near future). Continue Reading
These three sites make up the Peace Criminals website trilogy (or triptych!), for which there is now a new, fairly static ‘hub’ site, which acts as a signpost to the three sites.
NS is the general critique and commentary site; it also includes opportunities for art, e.g. painting, poetry, fake news satire, other short fiction. Critique and commentary can either be satirical or ‘prose’ (i.e. solemn) commentary.
NSN is the general ‘news data’ site. Rather than polemical commentary, it provides information on anti-war protests, anniversaries, obituaries, and other factual info.
Obviously, the distinction between ‘news data’ and ‘news commentary and art’ is not absolute, but I think it’s fairly intuitive nonetheless. Continue Reading
But what is it? Here’s a selection of material from the very first post:
The original idea was that this website would be devoted only to serializing the various volumes in my series of satire ebook collections, Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes.
Yet, this just doesn’t seem so appropriate now. After all, devoting a website purely to serialization is arguably rather dull. So this website will also provide an opportunity for satirists to promote your own work too! Please email email@example.com, or just put a comment underneath any of the posts. In addition, I expect to have other satire-related material, such as interviews with satirists and humorists; whether they be Nouveau Voltaires or old Charlie hands!
So, the site is clearly not just about my ebook serialization projects. If you would like to either introduce yourself, advertize/promote your work, express your views on legal/ethical/theoretical issues surrounding satire, or indeed you have anything in mind that I just haven’t thought of, please let me know, and I’m happy to be of assistance!

Wallace Runnymede and Appleseed Ike have recently launched Neocon Surveillance and Neocon Surveillance Network! These two anti-war and pro-peace sites provide both prose commentary and satire, in order severely and indeed mercilessly critique the current Neocon/Liberal Interventionist consensus.
A. Neocon Surveillance Network provides some basic factual data, e.g. free advertizing opportunities, news of protests, and information on anniversaries related to war and peace.
B. Neocon Surveillance, the key website of the two, is an uncompromisingly contrarian and dissident grassroots blogging outlet. As strong believers in self-criticism among pacifists and non-interventionists, a non-negotiable aspect of our critical responsibility is to explore faults in anti-war movements, organizations, texts, works of arts and individuals; rather than merely criticizing warmongers and their apologists alone. For this reason, we explicitly repudiate far-left and far-right ‘anti-war’ ideology alike.
In this spirit, we are looking for more centre-left and centre-right people (either pacifists or non-interventionists) to join our team: please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you are not sure if we are for you, or vice versa, please email us anyway, and we can discuss your possible contributions to our cause. Continue Reading
This site is devoted to mainstream (centre left through centre right, or vice versa!) critique and satire of neoconservativism, liberal interventionism, responsibility to protect, and general self-serving warmongering and opportunism. If you wish to write for this site, please drop your co-irritants a line: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Better still, Jan 21 is just the preliminary pre-launch, to give a taster of the site. The full launch will be on 1 March 2016, with a wide array of articles! In terms of genres and styles, we will be very pluralistic: opinion pieces, fake news, poetry, cartoons, personal reflections, and more! We are open to a wide range of contributions. If you are not sure, just ask! We are very open-minded in general about genres and styles, as well as about opinions, although in order to maintain the quite specific character and integrity of the site, we do ask that contributors are committed to either pacifism or non-interventionism. (Both are equally suitable for our purposes here at Neocon Surveillance. Again, if you aren’t sure what this might entail, just ask!)
Why can’t we just have the clubs play proper music that you can actually dance and sing to? Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, I mean, hell, even Creedence Clearwater Revival, just throwing that one out there!
I mean, I couldn’t care less, but we just have to do something! How much longer are the American people gonna have to put up with this?
You know what, you’re sick and tired of it, I’m sick and tired of it too. Let’s put an end to this and put a stop to all this pathetic, ridiculous music, once and for all! Freedom of speech doesn’t mean your stupid tunes have to be heard by just about everyone! That’s not what America is all about!
(Sheesh! That ‘freedom of speech demands accountability’ schtick sounded like a Clinton thing, right? Well, I’ve given money to Democrats too. You know, I’m not a dogmatic kinda guy!)
Conspiracy Theories is the hard hitting website that isn’t afraid to investigate and expose the dark forces that seek to prey in so many devious ways upon the general publicum. We are here because you need us! We are ever vigilant against those evil people, organizations, nations and cultures that are out to handicap and repress our great American lifestyle.
The following are the dark, sinister plots we have uncovered this week:
Conspiracy Theory # 3,482- Valiant researchers have discovered that dentists around the world have been weaving minute, low grade diamonds into the threads of dental floss for years.
These small specks of the hardest mineral known to man slowly erode the base of teeth with each flossing, eventually leading to the destruction of the enamel protecting their sensitive core. Continue Reading
As every establishment career politician knows, repetition is of the essence of persuasion.
So, here’s a quick refresher on what the Godwinbots afflicting Glossy News and most of the serious internet are up to.
Unpatriotic Pinko Troll Example #1:
Goering said ‘all you have to do is create a fictional or at least semi-fictional enemy within and without, and then bring the people to your bidding to denounce the naysayers as traitors and parasites.’ Sound familiar?
