I originally launched my web-related service offerings in 1998, when I began providing low-level consulting services to local professionals, teaching them about the web and what they could do with it.

After securing a respectable clientele, I decided to branch out in order to offer my services to a wider audience, and I subsequently created a more public home on the web to further the cause in 2005 with the launch of a web services firm called PALSYS.

Since that time, my work has been focused not only on technical development, but also content creation; while it is easily lost behind the media-driven face of the modern web, the written (or typed) word is still the real language that powers information exchange, and I am in the business of promoting words in general.

I am now an online publisher of engaging, enjoyable content on a variety of subjects, working to fill the web with the kind of words that people want to read. My content is published on both websites that I own and those of my clients, helping them to rank well in search engines, draw new traffic, and create new subscribers.

So what is it that I can do for you, exactly? Well, besides being something of a magician with the English language, I also boast sturdy HTML, CSS and PHP skills, along with extensive experience in social media, search engine optimization, and other forms of marketing, allowing me to offer you well-rounded assistance with nearly any project, web-based or otherwise.

Gillette Shames Men In New Ad

Gillette Shames Men In New Ad

In the latest example of a multi-national corporation with a history of using child labour and price fixing in order to maximize its profits offering moral guidance to common folk, Proctor & Gamble is using its Gillette brand to remind men that we’re all basically pieces of shit at heart.

The advertisement’s description opens with a line that implies that men are, by default, awful human beings that require intervention if they hope to become anything better:

Bullying. Harassment. Is this the best a man can get?

No, that’s not the best a man can get, and thousands of years of history has proven that countless times. Contrary to the popular quip, one bad apple – or even hundreds or thousands among millions or billions – does not spoil the bunch.

So far, the video has racked up 255,000 thumbs up versus 630,000 thumbs down on YouTube, with media attention also thankfully tending toward criticism – not that there isn’t an unsettling amount of praise being thrown around.

From a Hermetic point of view, this is an attempt to subjugate the primal masculine force in the west, the same folly committed against the primal feminine force in times past. While we’ve rectified one issue, the pendulum has swung so far so as to see us make the same mistake over again, merely from a different angle. And it doesn’t look to be letting up any time soon, unfortunately.

So what’s your bet on the next corrupt corporate entity to remind us men of our lowly nature?
