A place for Nevets to spill his guts and personal business when Facebook just won't suffice.

What the hell is this place?

Hello, humans! If you've somehow stumbled across this little narcissistic webpage of mine, you're probably wondering what the heck it's all about. Well, try not to overthink it. Truth be told, it's not about anything.. Nothing other than whatever dopey obsessions my little brain grows interested in at any given moment. And who am I, you ask? I'm nobody. Just a guy. A guy named Nevets (aka., Steven, aka., The Gutter Monkey). And, for better or worse, I'm the reason this nook of the interwebs exists.

Here you'll find an eclectic collection of random things I've written, illustrated, and/or recorded throughout the years. Most were done for fun and personal expression, some were designed to share information I've acquired, and a handful are just instances of me spouting my two cent opinions into the cybernetic void. Also, you may notice a thing or two that I've shamelessly slapped together for an easy buck (guy's gotta eat, right?). But for the benefit of both my ever-dwindling pride and this blogs integrity, I'll try to keep that latter stuff to a minimum. Instead, I'll mostly try and share things that I enjoy and the stuff that makes me, well... me (that's what blogs are for, right? I'm a little late to the game).

Seeing as though I'm only one man (who's not making a living from this silly stuff), my time is limited in what I can get done and how often I can post new things. So this place probably won't be as regularly updated as I'd like. But since I can't foresee myself ever not enjoying creating stuff or thinking out loud, I feel fairly confident that there'll always be something newish on here. Or, if nothing else, I'll try not to get bored and abandon the place.

Random Ruminations | Trust

If you're not the type who's inclined to acknowledge, analyze, consider, and accept your own embarrassing flaws, bad decisions, misdoings, selfishness, and biased perceptions of events and ideas, then your opinions, judgments, and conclusions in concern to anything else should always be taken with a grain of salt, I think.

Dr. Paul Blaylock from Salvation Boulevard added the Atheist and Agnostic Characters List

Salvation Boulevard is one of those little, under-the-radar dark comedies that involves a crime being committed, someone trying to get away with it, someone getting framed, and a whole bunch of hijinks and unlucky circumstances in between. If you’ve seen anything like Lucky Numbers (2000), Very Bad Things (1998), or The Ice Harvest (2005), you pretty much know what you’re in for here.

This twist on this particular movie is that it all takes place in the weird and kooky world of fundamentalist Christians. Ed Harris plays a Christopher Hitchens-esque atheist debater who is sadly shot in the forehead by a fundamentalist preacher.
