The Mayans weren’t predicting the end of the world with their calendar. They just wanted you to buy the next age’s calendar.

Take, for example, my Justin Bieber 2010 photo calendar. It runs out at the end of March 2011. Am I speeding to the supermarket to stock up on canned corn, Space Shuttle ice-cream […]

Ten Thousand And Counting

On January 24, 2011 By

Congratulations to our new best friend, @blueperez, who just became the 10,000th registered oneword™ user.

We are now competing with Facebook at .01% of their 500 million. And going strong.

Following in the footsteps of another .01% peer, Apple, we thought it only fitting to award number ten-thousand with a big, fat […]

Everyday Grammar. Every Day.

On January 9, 2011 By

I saw a huge billboard on Cahuenga at the 101 Freeway in Hollywood tonight. It’s prime advertising real estate with no less than a $20,000US monthly price tag.

The headline reads:

Everyday is Valentine’s Day

This translates loosely to:

Ordinary is Valentine’s Day

Maybe. However, I’m guessing that what they meant was: “Every day is […]

If someone is gay and wants to serve in a military rampant with John Waynes and Pattons—they should. That’s courage and determination if I’ve ever seen it.

I’m happy to hear that someone in the US government has seen the light. In fact, the only people that should be banned from the military are, well, […]

In an earlier post, I had mentioned being anti-stupid.

This was in response to multiple (some harsh and rude) allegations of the site being against freedom of speech. This, to me, is not only comical—but the antithesis of oneword.

Rather than being anti-stupid, I would like to offer a revised, more accurate […]

Interior Motive

Inspiration is a tricky little son of a bitch.

Really. Inspiration’s mother was the daughter of Necessity, the mother of Invention, who was the daughter of Repetition, the mother of Skill (from her first marriage), who was widely known to be a ranting, annoying, bitch.

The more we write, the less we die.

We want […]

Sutton Place is arguably the nicest neighborhood in New York City. Three miles West is the corner of St. Nicholas Ave. at 125th St., which is arguably the worst neighborhood* in New York City.

An Open Letter from

On December 2, 2010 By

(via our Facebook page)

We’ve had quite a few people accusing us of being anti-freedom of speech lately. Not the least of which was someone saying “Fuck you” on our Facebook page earlier today.

Really, we’re all for freedom of speech. We’re PRO-freedom of speech. We’re PRO-stream of consciousness. We’re only anti-stupid.

How do we […]

The Kids Are All Write

On October 26, 2010 By

Over the years, I’ve received numerous inquiries from teachers wanting to use in their writing classes. Explaining that “they would use it now, but there’s no profanity filter.” 

I respond cordially. But my gut response is, “fuck that.”

Interesting that a four-letter word or picture of naked human bodies throws everyone into an upheaval. […]
