Rants

In my travels I regularly come across some religious stupidity ruining shit for other people.  If it isn’t the way women’s ankles offend the gods, then it is the way someone refuses to fast during Ramadan, or the way mountain gods cry because I decided to work on my ass tan…  Well, apparently Malaysia’s “Holy Mountain” stupidity has spilled to […]

If you can marginalize stupidity, you can comfortably marginalize religion.

Marginalize religion.

In light of recent events in Paris, namely the mass murder of the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, I have decided to write down my 2 cents. For those of you that have been living in a small hut deep in the boreal forests of Yukon for the past little while, here is what happened:  Three masked gunmen showed up at […]

Monkeetime Brunei | Tattered and Brainwashed

Brunei popped up on my travel itinerary quite spontaneously. I needed to do a visa run, and havin already gone to just about every place in S. E. Asia with the exception of Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Brunei, I though, “fuck it, Brunei it is!”, given the difficulties in getting to the other two. I booked a dirt […]

Kill your gods.

Hi. If your feelings are like ripe apples and bruise easily, then you need to move on and not read this.  It is not a request to share opinions or exchange ideas, because if yours are different from mine, then I dont give half a fuck.  This is a rant, which means, I give you my opinion. No reply needed. […]

Be a dick!

It is my long-standing conviction that in the world of politics, it takes a special kind of lying, cheating and scheming person to make it to the top. Politicians just about anywhere have a unique ability to smile, pose for photos, deliver speeches, and otherwise convince people that they are great… Meanwhile they spin their quite efficient webs of lies […]

Ashes and riots…

As I type this (Feb 29, 2012), various news channels are filled with reports of riots in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) as a response to some copies of the Koran being burned at the Bagram Air Base.  Being a rabid antitheist, and, for the time being, free of the various forces of censorship which normally shut down free speech out there […]

Animal Keychains… A short rant about runaway consumerism.

Every time I have visited China, there was some sort of new fad, something cute, some sort of accessory that everyone wanted, something, anything.  Recently a new, rather sick craze took over the land: animal keychains. Not injection-moulded plastic elephants and giraffes, but live turtles, salamanders and fish jammed into a plactic, water-filled  bag, sealed, and sold for as little as […]

“Halloween with Hitler” – A rant about humour (and lack of it…)

This was a piece I wrote on my Facebook page a few years ago…It is actually quite relevant to Monkeetime.com because I get a regular dose of hate mail from people who don’t appreciate my stupid Nazi jokes in my videos.  Written day after Halloween… ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Every year at about this time (Halloween, for those of you living in Saudi […]

The Potala used to be the residence of the Dalai Lama.  Now it is a massive museum which makes a hefty profit on foreign tourists, and I say "GOOD!"

“Keep Tibet in China”: A rant against tribalism and other stuff…

“Free Tibet!!!” – who hasn’t heard this? Unless you have been living in a dungeon for most of your life or you get your news from bar coasters you should have heard of Tibet and its various independence organizations… Often portrayed as one of the biggest struggles for freedom in the 20th (and 21st) century, liberation of Tibet is a […]

Random North Korea collection…

This page is for those who just cannot let go of North Korea… This country continues to fascinate, continues to pop up in the media, and ever week/month something amazing happens. I love it. In addition to launching a “washing machine wrapped in aluminium foil” (as their satellite was described by American diplomats) – into the sea, here is a […]
