Ep-Banner-05-NudistColony-1300

Oh, the allure of flesh, of thick folds of burbling, cellulicious, pocked pockets of wonder. Or so that’s what Gordon may think of when he imagines a nudist colony. Caleb is a bit more open minded, in that to him the preceding sentence would be said without sarcasm. Nudity is a wonderful thing. And that’s what our boys, Caleb J. Ross and Gordon Highland discuss during today’s episode of the Important Question? Podcast.

What about you? Would you live in a nudist colony? Let us know on Twitter. Caleb J. Ross can be found @calebjross and Gordon Highland can be found @gordonhighland.

Be sure to pay close attention to the word from this episode’s sponsor: Hedonism’s all-new, all-nude Kansas resort.

recite-1m4fwypI’ve been a professional writer for zero years, so please pay attention when I tell you this: you probably need to stop doing the following three things.

1. Stop listing your job as author or writer in social profiles unless you truly do make a living as an author or writer

I understand the desire to be perceived as a capital A Author. I also may even understand the fake-it-until-you-become it mentality. There’s a hope of perpetual perceptual motion when you start calling yourself a writer; eventually people around you see you as a writer which may even lead to legitimate writing gigs with legitimate money (not contributor copies).

But what you may be doing–without even realizing it–is an injustice to young writers who themselves want to be professionals one day. If new writers see you claiming to be a professional, they may interpret your likely paltry output (a novel here, a story there) as sufficient to earn a living wage.… Read the rest

ManMinusANecktie-BannerMy anti-confrontational nature began at birth. Most kids cry when ripped from the womb. I shrugged. So when, during my first post-college agency job, I was prepping for a face-to-face meeting with a client that, for lack of a more tactful way of stating this, hated my company’s fucking face, I was nervous. My palms were sweaty, my heart was pounding, and I remember feeling as though the entire universe had suddenly snapped back like it had exceeded the limit of its cosmic elasticity and it was now pulling back in on itself with me at the very center, suffering the pressure of billions of years of macrocosmic expansion…you know, normal nerves stuff. But the impending client firing squad paled in comparison to the sudden realization, just before stepping out of my office door, that I had no idea how to tie a tie. And worse, I was in no position to ask for instructions.… Read the rest

IListenedToTheMetroidTheme-Banner

I imagine that I came into existence like a video game, specifically the way Samus Aran, heroine of the Metroid series, came into existence. Video game creator Yoshio Sakamoto started developing 1986’s Nintendo classic Metroid with simplistic movements for the game’s protagonist already in place: “jump, run, and shoot.”[1] I imagine my father–never one to care about the gratification of others nor one to welcome responsibility–handled the experience of creating me with similar movements, though surely in a different order: shoot (cum), jump (get dressed), run (leave).

My father had a problem with cocaine. This I concluded based on my own vague memories mashed against slipped nuggets from my mother. I shouldn’t blame him; he was born with the infamous “Ross nose,” which is identified by enormous nostrils, holes big enough to store an 8-ball inside (the pool kind and the drug kind, probably simultaneously). The way I see it,  considering the awe-inspiring size of this genetic abnormality he was obligated to stick something in there, and if not hotdogs for the sake of winning a contest (that should exist, if it doesn’t) why not cocaine?… Read the rest

Ep-Banner-02-RuinChristmas

Even the most jolly of us get fed up with Christmas at some point. Perhaps it’s the commercialism, perhaps the forced family interactions, or perhaps even the perpetually smiling faces of children that ultimately drive us to crazy thoughts…insane thoughts…diabolical thoughts, like ruining Christmas for children.

Caleb J. Ross and Gordon Highland explore the concept of ruining Christmas for children and even offer a few how-tos in this special holiday episode of the Important Question? Podcast

What about you? Would you ruin Christmas for a child on purpose?  Let us know on Twitter. Caleb J. Ross can be found @calebjross and Gordon Highland can be found @gordonhighland
