The Czar, like you, was all excited by last week’s solar eclipse in the Midwest, which—if you missed it—looked like this for nearly everyone: An eclipse, as you know, is when the moon moves in front of the Earth and …Continue reading →
Ralph Peters writes a good column on NRO today, headlined “The Joy of Killing for Allah: Why our ‘messaging’ won’t stop terror.” It’s worth your time. Loyal readers of the Gormogons will not be surprised by much in it, however, …Continue reading →

I subscribe to a number of blog feeds, email digests, etc. for work and personal interests. A co-worker turned me on to Seth Godin’s daily emails from his blog – they’re short (usually) and specific to a single topic. While …Continue reading →
Dr. J. updated his computers to Yosemite (aka 10.10) the other day and was admiring the default wallpaper on his desktop computer from across the room. There was a profile in the side of the mountain. Not only that, the …Continue reading →
‘Puter’s hopping mad. Well, either that or he’s hopping because his intestines are trying to crawl out of his bunghole after chugging an entire 18 ounce jar of Huy Fong chili garlic sauce* on a dare from Czar. ‘Puter made …Continue reading →
Hello, children. Hello. The Mandarin knows many of you like Puter here on this site as well as on the Twitter machine, and wondered if you all had any idea what he’s really like outside of the Castle. So your …Continue reading →
The Gormogons are all fans of getting outside and enjoying the fresh air and some healthy exercise. Some of the castle dwellers wanted more variety around the grounds for our enjoyment so our official contracts officer, ‘Puter, put out a …Continue reading →
The Czar has discovered some emails floating in his networked world that should have seen the light of day earlier, and so he apologizes that some of these may not be topical by this point. First up, Boneman writes in, …Continue reading →
Probably a good many of our readers never heard the name Julius Fučik, even though the Czar is certain you can hum every note to the first third of his military battle march “Entry of the Gladiators,: (Vjezd Gladiátorů, although …Continue reading →
Houston has subpœnaed a bunch of pastors’ sermons in the name of “non-discrimination.” Confucius* holds no particular brief for these pastors or whatever they might preach, but finds it more than a little troubling that enough government employees considered it …Continue reading →
It’s a little-known fact, but according to the Gormogons’ by-laws, no more than four Gormogons can ever be in the same place at the same time except while on Castle grounds. At least that’s what ‘Puter recalls the by-laws say, …Continue reading →
Today, we have three letters worthy of reply, or as any of the six remaining speakers of Esperanto might say (and rightfully so): «Mi parolas la stulta bastardo langugage de Esperanto.» First up, Operative DH has a thought about distaffing …Continue reading →
The Czar is pleased to have hosted the 2014 Gormogonicon party at his dacha. The dacha was colorfully decorated for this year’s theme, which was Booze and Chews (which narrowly beat out Hug and Chug). Mr. and Mrs. Mandarin, plus …Continue reading →
Operative BJ has been thinking a lot about the way things are worded in today’s world. And with darn good reason. For example, he’s been toying with the idea of same sex marriage. No, waitthat came out wrong. He’s been …Continue reading →
Wal-Mart announced this week that it will be raising health insurance premiums for its employees and will end providing health insurance for part-time employees (those working under 30 hours per week). It probably isn’t news to anyone that the liberals …Continue reading →
