""Stentorian" comes from Stentor, a loud-voiced herald in Homer's Iliad. I adopted this name for the site because of an age-old lesson: to be effective, ideas must be communicated loudly or, more precisely, clearly and effectively."

Have you guys noticed that the more a conspiracy website tries to use graphics in order to get their point across, the more shitty the actual images look? The one above looks like the web designer could only figure out how to take the thumbnail out of a Google Image Search for "Sharpton", then decided to frame it in black bars and subtitles like his Animes. Today's ALOD is here to inform you about all of the nasty propaganda out there in America, as well as constant justification for shitty Roman clip art. For a site that tries to explain how media tries to convince you to do horrible, misguided acts of War, Suffrage & Talking To Black People, it's not very good at getting it's point across.

I remember when the Polish Husaria took the screen during The Two Towers - i was so upset I walked out of film. There's just something about Hobbits being Muslims that gets me really riled up.

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
