God’s message to Russia: you suck

A chunk of rock from outer space comes crashing down on a poor unsuspecting Russian population, and in the wake of hundreds injured from the aftershock, a clueless bunch of clowns dressed in unfunny hats declared this to be the act of a deity who enjoys reminding his ant colony that life on Earth is fragile as shit: "I think that not only for the Ural [regions] residents, but for the whole of humanity, the ...

Phase one: Growth

This article first appeared on jacobfortin.com and I've reposted it here so hard-core members who haven't yet had their accounts activated could keep track of the progress of The 300. After only a few days and a half-assed attempt on my part to actually sell the idea of "The 300", I'm happy to say we've already reached almost 30 confirmed members in a little over a week. If we manage to keep this pace, we w ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 308

This week, Ryan and I break the big announcement from the Vatican, and speculate as to why the Pope is running home with his tail between his legs.

For those of you interested in becoming one of the 300, please upgrade your account and let me know what number you would like to ha ...

Jesus is my highly offensive word, yo

I have an admiration for train wrecks, and I can't imagine a greater tragedy than this rap video tastefully titled "Jesus is my Nigga". It's appropriately sung by a bunch of out-of-touch white dudes with very limited musical skills. Luckily, the whole thing is such a complete mess that it winds up being entertaining in the end. Still, I want to know: was there not some moment where a young person took these ...

Forums are back for “The 300″

As many of you may remember, TGA used to have a forum, but it made the site slow as balls (and was generally not being used enough to justify the bandwidth). I promised that as time went on, I would bring the forums back, and I have....sort of. I've actually re-launched a forum on my other site, jacobfortin.com. I've made this site the temporary home (which explains why it's so damn plain) for all things re ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 307

This week, I recorded a short show with Ryan, a sort of off-the-cuff show on a huge variety of topics, ranging from the economy to right wing terrorism. We're wrapping up the DVD this week, which explains the short show, but things will be back to normal next week. ...

Mommy and Daddy broke up, kids

In case you haven't had the chance to listen to Episode 306 of the podcast, Carisa and I are no longer a romantic couple. I've moved back to the east coast, and despite us both being sad at this recent development, it was a mutual decision. Obviously, this has some pretty serious consequences for me, and the podcast in the future. To make up for the expense of moving again, I'll probably need to find a part ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 306

This week, a sad announcement about Carisa and me, but also a new hope for the future among this heartbreak: the announcement of 'The 300', a group I'm creating to finally bring solvency to TGA, and ensure the growth of a full fledged organisation. Interested people can email me or leave comments on the site, or on Facebook. You can also nab a hard-core membership now: NOTE: FAN ONLY SHOW ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 305

This week, I interview Josh Sobel, who is trying to fund an interesting and exciting Kickstarter project. Please, go to the site and donate any amount you can.

Steven Pinker: How Violence has Declined

If you've listened to my shows recently, you know how big a fan of Pinker I am, including his most brilliant work "The Better Angels of our Nature: Why Violence has Declined". If you haven't read this lengthy beast, this talk actually covers the basics really well. A must listen! ...
