AN OCTOBER 7, 2019 UPDATE:
After 17-years of anonymity under an alias of Professor Taboo, I can FINALLY disregard any probability of having my Visitation rights suspended or taken away from me and/or my Child-support unreasonably raised by connections of me to this blog. This past March my youngest, my son turned 18-years of age. The Texas Attorney General’s Office legally notified me in mid-May to Please stop sending us your monthly child-support payments. We are trying to permanently close your case/cause #. How many divorced Dad’s get THAT sort of notice from the Texas OAG?

Me Close Up_2With this official notification the only way my WordPress blog-content and topics could be used against me to deny visitation with my kids or further exacerbate my monthly obligations/struggles caused by this office, Texas Family Law, Texas Labor Laws, and by my kid’s mother is to sue me, take me back to court. A very expensive, exhausting process with no guarantees. I cannot tell you all how ELATED I am this day has finally arrived! Seventeen years.

Now I have nothing to hide about who I really am and proud to be. There are no facades here. There were no facades whatsoever before 1993-94 and certainly not after 1996-97 and what horrors to place in Stanford, Kentucky (Vovô). Ever since the fall of 1990 I have kept my promise to myself and everyone dearest to me, of being unflinchingly forthright, hardcore raw, open, and honest. I’ve never wavered from it. However, such a level of brutal honesty sometimes hurts others, bothers them, makes them uncomfortable, but their feelings are temporary. The truth, no matter how painful it might be, will always be 100-times better in the long-run than maintaining a long hypocritical facade. This lesson and principle can only be learned by years, decades of experience dealing with many, many people and a multitude of personalities, am I right?

Paolo Coelho quote

There is one paradox and possible exception to this above principle:  when it involves your very own children at young, immature ages. Little children don’t need to hear horrible detailed facts about people, even more so when it concerns their own parents, until they become more fully mature in their late 20’s or in their 30’s or not at all. Children of divorced parents should NOT be involved in matters they had nothing to do with. It isn’t their baggage. But this is me. Lots of people would rather take the easiest road, the path of least resistance, the road of make-believe, facades, and un-accountability rather than deal with reality and true human nature. I was held hostage once before leveraged with innocent children. I will never be held hostage like that ever again.

Nevertheless, this year all of me in the raw is now within my legal rights as an American citizen—barring any number of insane Texas state laws or provisions. Hah! If anyone understands the centuries old fight for “state’s rights,” you know what I am referring to. For most of America’s young existence, we are more like 50 independent nations than we are one nation.

Therefore, to all of my friends here on the blog-o-sphere, I am thrilled to tell you you can now call me by my real name Dwain if you like. Or Professor Taboo, PT, or Prof., they all still work. Whatever pleases you. 🙂

Some of what is researched, discussed, and written here will be used for my thesis and Master’s Degree.

FAIR WARNING:  You are not going to be able to breeze through my blog and magically or psychically absorb everything; I do not or cannot write or blog in such a fleeting way.  If you have only 1-2 minutes to browse, then it would behoove you to move on.  Not seeking to make this web blog a marketing cash-cow, win an award for the most visitors, or make anyone smarter and wiser…well, maybe a little the last one…at least for myself *wink & grin*.  Hoping hearts, minds, and souls are pleasantly engaged and always expanding while here.

A fastidious person in the throes of conformity is a rich source of suspense. With each throw of the dice or raising of the veil, their beauty I find, arises ironically with our colorful decadence.

    • Thank you kindly Neur(something)N(something)umbrella-“es”(something else?)! Wow. 😉

      As you might have surmised, my blog and content are a little different and not as literate(?) and eloquent as The Magnificent Le Clown and his contributors. But I humbly thank you nonetheless. I hope you enjoy my little Bohemian corner.

      • LMAO – You can call me Victoria. There’s a story behind that name but I’ll spare you. 😀

        I am about halfway through (major multitasking) your post regarding the river in India. A fantastic metaphor. While I find “The Magnificent Le Clown” one of my favorite blogs on WP, your blog speaks my language, I sense it will become one of my favs as well..

        Yes, I think I will enjoy your little Bohemian corner.

  1. Pleased to meet you. :). My name is Lindsey. I have more than two minutes to spare…so….. I will peruse around your blog. I like your about section: short, sweet, to the point. What are you getting your Masters in? What do you teach?

    Have a great day!

    • Hello Lindsey! Thank you so much for stopping by with more than two minutes! 😉

      Will receive my master’s in Liberal Studies from SMU with the hope of eventually teaching young American minds (high school, collegiate, graduates) around the world the humanities and cultures (e.g. socio-political aspects too) of a “shrinking” less ‘bordered’ world. That’s all. 😉

    • G’day thatssojacob, many thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll visit more, perhaps stay(?) and join in the dialogues, etc. What a great way to jump-in the blogosphere! #3 huh? So happy to be in the 15 really! 😉

      On my way over to your site now. Thanks again for the visit and comment Sir!

    • So nice of you to drop by PorterGirl. I am delighted and hope your visit is stimulating and pleasant.

      I was just about to start perusing your blog. Looking forward to your splendid treasures in your corner of this vast blogosphere. If we both enjoy Esme’s little shop of literary and Steampunk performances, I’m sure we will both be chatting again in the future! (gives a nod, smile & tip of hat)

  2. Hello Professor. Here I be. Right. Though my use of Koran quotes is deliberately mimicking the Christians who toss quotes at me, NONE of them have ever gotten that point, or the irony of it. Leroy told me once that my Muslim faith, and the Koran, were false because the Koran was written after the Bible, but he still completely missed the point in what I was doing, and, I’m NOT Muslim. I love Poe’s Law, like John Zande does, and use it all the time. Yes, I’m petty, but I likes buggin’ fundies who try to bug me. $Amen$

    • The Bible quote you cited: Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” I find this a beautiful quote because it produces a beautiful scenario for me: Jesus is God, and God is Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Thus, God, as the Holy Spirit, impregnated a 12 year old virgin Jewish gal with himself as his own son. Then, God, was born as his own son, and sacrificed himself to forgive us from the anger he himself had for us. He coulda just said, “Oh, screw it people! I friggin’ forgive ya’.” But no, he had to go through all these contortions instead. AND, it REALLY wasn’t a sacrifice when God committed suicide via crucifixion by Roman soldiers because…well…because he’s God and knew he can’t REALLY die. Thus, he knew damn well he wasn’t gonna stay dead long. No fun there. And, while we’re at it, why not stay dead for 3 months instead of three days? Wouldn’t the return entrance be even grander then? Guess folks had short attention spans back in the day and woulda moved on to some other whacked out guru for advice instead of waitin’ around. 3 months is kind of a long time, ya’ know. Any way, the Bible verse quoted SHOULD read, if one believes God is 3 dudes in one, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to me except through me.” Far more accurate, from a Christian view of reality, I think. $Amen$

      • You’ve made some excellent points about the nature of the Trinity… at least the reasons why 4th and 5th century CE Roman theologians HAD to distinguish themselves from traditional Jewish Messiahship; i.e. a Divine omnipotent, omniscent spiritual Messiah versus a simple Earthly King. Plain and simple, Emperor Constantine’s bishops and all church leaders (Popes included) thereafter had to one-up Judaism, BUT still keep it accessible to all Gentiles.

        Your final rephrasing is excellent! (chuckling)

    • Greetings Jeff and thanks for the Follow!

      Yes, I knew you weren’t Muslim either; I’ve read enough of your comments on various blogs and blog-posts to deduce you were none of the Abrahamic followers. It really is incumbent for one to ‘know’ who they’re engaging or contesting. Many great generals & leaders of history, whether in defeat and certainly in victory, first did their homework on their advesary; a common pre-battle tactic. Nevertheless, if one doesn’t see the good in “homework” then impeccable politeness and humility would be in order for any hope of swaying or influence, yes? 😉

      Yes, I’m petty, but I likes buggin’ fundies who try to bug me. $Amen$

      A man after my own heart. A good sense of humor should ALWAYS be maintained in this Asylum of Insanity we call human life! I love and embrace any amount of diversity on this planet! The more the better!

      Did you want to carry on our discussion/remarks about Xian Fundamentalism? If so, then it might be more visible/appropriate on one of my counter-Xian posts. Your thoughts?

  3. In your blog, “Correcting the Gospels….,” you make a list early on of five points but before the list you use the word, “preclude.” I think you mean to use a different word that proves your points. Other than that from what I read your analysis is excellent.

    The point of reforming Judaism (whatever that means today) is also not lost. However if these bones of this man Y’shua existed and it’s been cleared up partially, what was he saying and what were they hiding?

    • Hello אליהו קאן and thank you for pointing out my error! You are correct, I did mean to use a different word that meant an “early-conclusion”. Hah! 🙂

      I thank you also for your kind feedback Sir! I did put a lot of study and work into that blog-post. “Reforming Judaism“, and I personally hope all three Abrahamic religions can be reformed, historically corrected as best as possible, and kept in proper perspective as historical myths and legends… and NOT monistic truths and laws. Yet, the human brain is an organ remarkably capable of a very creative and WILD imagination, as well as wanting to be accepted/included by a group and a “cause”… even if that cause is fallacious. :/

      I will eventually move this/your comment over to that specific blog-post: http://wp.me/p1uLmp-Uh

      Thank you again for your feedback and please stop by again and as often as you like Sir! ❤
