About

Have you ever been bored and trolled the Internet, much like the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, in search of something entertaining?  What’s that?  That’s what you are almost always doing?  Then fear not!  We here at corngoblin.com have the exact same problem, and we work tirelessly to remedy it.  If you have a nerdy disposition, or are seeking to join the fold, or if you are just bored and looking for a laugh, then you have come to the right place.  Contained within these hallowed halls are writings of the most droll degree, awaiting ocular input into your brain, just a click away!  Enjoy!, but first, a warning: here at corngoblin.com, a sense of humor is not only optional, it’s mandatory.

-What Others Think The Corngoblin Is About

Corngoblin is at its core a sophisticated and witty social commentary masked by a thick layer of absurdist humor. – Nathan

The corngoblin uses wit, humor, and copious amounts of artistic license to transform everyday events into epic tales of epicness. -Kaitlin

The minutiae of day-to-day life are often the starting point for a series of outlandish conflicts, rendered primarily through humor, non-sequitur, and savvy pop culture references. -David

If you continue to pretend being online in general, there will be war. -Kim Jong-un

-About the Corngoblin himself, first among writers here at corngoblin.com:

I like to write stuff.  It’s a disease of the worst kind.  Often times, when I am in the mood to write, the muses provide me with no inspiration whatsoever, but when the fever is upon me, and the words are burning to escape, i enter a sort of mad fit, and can write thousands of words in mere seconds.  This is a collection of all the things that I write in my mad fits, and comments from those who dared to read them.

I used to go to film school.  Now I live in Los Angeles, the place people go to after film school.
