I've said it in the past and it still holds true today; Misanthropy And Cupcakes is nothing without cupcakes.

When I restarted this, I figured one of the things I could do at (or near) the end of the month was troll around the internet for some cupcake recipes to share with you guys. After all, you have to put up with my verbal dribblings, so the very least I can do is offer you something sweet in return. Granted, I'm not gonna make them for you, but I'm always happy to share what limited knowledge I possess.

...this blog's proof of that.

Now, since this month has been a little taxing on all of us, I figured you could use a drink of sorts. So, delve right into these ALCOHOLIC CUPCAKES!

The Essence of My Misanthopy: An Old Topic Revisited

I figured it was time to revisit this one topic. It was one of the first I wrote during the previous incarnation, and I know I can't hope to match its eloquence. Still, it must be tried. After all, I do feel a need to explain myself. After all, I do walk through life calling myself a misanthrope.

And there always seems to be a strangely odd stigma attached to misanthropy. Not the same kind as with misogyny or misandry, but it is there; we simply don't talk about it as much. And why would anyone? If a misogynist, a misandrist, and a misanthropist see each other in a bar, it's more likely that the misogynist and the misandrist will tear into each other while ignoring the misanthropist as they sit silently in the corner.

So, let's start at the basics.

An Open Letter to President Donald Trump

[WRITER'S NOTE - Yes, this is the second Trump-related post in the same month, and I'm not entirely thrilled on it, either. However, in remembering past endeavors, I missed moments to state my opinion while the subject was still topical. While I understand that the Trump presidency will remain topical for a great deal of time to come, I do not intend to turn this 'project' into a permanent beacon against a President I have little faith in. Let the historians and politicians provide deeper analysis of his coming actions. For now, these are words that I wanted to say twelve hours ago, but sleep overtook me before I could write them. - DF]

Dear President Trump,

I just want to share this with you...

Years ago, before I deleted the first incarnation of M&C for whatever stupid and non-drug-induced reason that I am still regretting now, I stumbled across this little gem of a quip from some cowardly anon.

And by the way, yes, if you don't leave some identifying marker behind your comments, you are, in fact, a bloody coward and nobody should believe any of the words that spill from that syllable-pump you call a mouth.

So, take a gander at this...

Conspicuous Consumption: or Why My Lunch Needs To Cost More Than Your Rent

Conspicuous consumption. Hoo boy, conspicuous consumption.

Of all the things on this planet I can't truly understand, and believe me when I say that the list of those things is legion, conspicuous consumption is easily within the top five. Maybe one day, I'll make a list of those top five things, but for now, you're just getting this one.

Random Shit I Like #1

Ahh, it is the return of the R.S.I.L.; that little "filler episode" post I make about things that manage to catch and hold my attention long enough for it to burrow into my brain like a boreworm from Splatterhouse 3.

If you don't get the reference, you've been playing the wrong video games.

At any rate, these were bound to pop back up at some point. Much as I'd like to have a great deal to talk about, the words just don't form up the way I'd like to and it takes time to get everything coherent and cohesive. So, I'll just use this time to share with you something I enjoy and hope you get some modicum of enjoyment from it, as well.

Music and animation have always been at the top of my "shareable jollies" list. It's even better when the two manage to come together in a way that creates something better than the two by themselves.

I really don't want to talk about it, but...

...it needs to be said by someone. I mean, I started this back up so I could talk and rant and vent for as long as I could stand it, so I had better post something.

And while I am loathe to do it, gods damn it, it has to be done.

So yeah, I gotta talk about Trump and his wall.

We're back, bitches!

How long has it been, now? Four years? Five? Doesn't matter.

Well, kiddies, decisions were made. After so long away, we here at M&C are back.
