  • Tip of the Iceberg

    While I completely understand the desire to undermine the significance of the Confederate States of America and the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia which has come to be such an explicit symbol of racism under the disguise of southern heritage. And it is true that the Confederacy only lasted 4 years 1861 […]

  • Things that Matter

    I know that I don’t have much of a platform here at arohen.com, but I do send my thoughts out into the world with a good bit of regularity and I’m feeling guilty about not talking about some of the things that have been going on in the country. I do the occasional rant, but […]

  • Upper Limit

    I mentioned this a while back to Lady Ronn and it seems to be an increasingly popular topic for the news to talk about, but how old is too old to be the president? I’m not an ageist. But, I’m also not a spring chicken just shouting about how the old folks running the country […]

  • Bloody Hell

    I recently watched the BBC One/Netflix Dracula series/movie. Lots of slashes there, but why? Because, it’s my understanding that the BBC One made the thing and Netflix bought the rights. And while it is set up as a series, it’s only 3 episodes long and the total runtime with credits and recaps and titles and […]

  • WtF People?

    Maybe it’s the bias in my newsfeed, but I keep seeing these articles about people cutting off Teslas or vandalizing Teslas or blocking chargers for electric vehicles and I can’t help but wonder, what the fuck is wrong with these people? Are they afraid of electric cars? Do they have a grudge against Tesla, Elon […]

  • Amazon Payment Fiasco

    I’ve had my first negative experience with an Amazon purchase experience. This is an actual Amazon issue, not a problem with one of their vendors. Which is impressive, given how often I shop on Amazon and how many years I’ve been using them. The issue was resolved, but it was still a thing. Here’s what […]

  • Impeachment, That is the Question

    Politics. That’s was your heads-up. Consider yourself warned. Trump impeachment. Why? Full disclosure. I am not a fan. I’m not a flag wagging, chest thumping member of either party. I vote based on who I agree with, not which party they’re in. Mostly, I’m a moderate, or possibly a centrist, I reserve my right to […]

  • Posting Notice

    I pulled the snopes card on a friend today and I kinda feel bad about it. While this is a direct result of that, it is not a reflection of that person or that event. So, this is not about you… you know who you are. Look, I get it, the internet is a wonderful, […]

  • Make America Better

    So I should probably stay away from Facebook. I mean, I usually do and that’s for the best. But I’m seeing a lot of really thinly veiled racism, political ignorance, and other shit that annoys the hell out of me coming from people who should just be better. Having said that, I’m about to piss […]

  • Sequel to the Jungle Book?

    Just trying to be funny there folks. I know it’s not a sequel to Jungle Book. That kid was raised by wolves. This kid was raised by apes. I don’t think they were even in the same jungle. Though both were enjoyable movies in their own rights. Let’s talk about The Legend of Tarzan I […]

  • Martha!

    Yesterday, I went and saw a movie with Lady Ronn and the middle child. I’m going to say a lot of snarky things, but I’ll start by saying: I did not hate this movie, but I was disappointed in what they (Warner Brothers and DC) gave me. I’d give it 3.5 stars on the Netflix scale. […]

  • Crazy

    I think the world has gone crazy. The world has gone so crazy that, I think, in the event of a zombie apocalypse there will be zombie rights activists. Which would be crazy, but it would happen.
