"Mommy, can I re-enact Chernobyl in the basement?"


Ahoy me hearties!  This be the tale of two scurvy landlubbers that sailed the seven internets in search of ‘idden treasures.  Aye, they found a fair few for their efforts, but rare indeed were those fine baubles when matched against the overwhelming tide of bilge they ‘ad to muck about in.  If ye only knew the ‘orrors they witnessed in their quest it would surely put ye off breakfast for a fortnight!

Today they be generous enough to share wit’ all you deck-dogs a fine trove indeed!  10 bonny links the like of which ye’ve ne’er seen…and if ye ‘ave seen ’em then keep your mouth shut about it and play along anyway if ye know whats good for ya!

Episode 32: In which Paidion and Nocturnusrex set out to lance an turgid boil.

Today it is your extraordinary good fortune to have the opportunity to be the first to catch a sneak-peek of our upcoming movie.  Okay, there hasn’t been any actual filming, but here is the script we wrote* for your perusal.  Okay, we aren’t done with the script, this is as far as we’ve gotten, but it is guaranteed to be chock-full of awesome and we’re giving you an exclusive look into the creative genius that is Culture Schlock!!




A rabbit hops across the rough terrain.


Three trucks from Chemical Technologies carry barrels of toxic waste.  They pass a sign:  PROSPERITY, NEVADA, POP 454.


A sleepy trucker called PIG PEN drives the third truck.


I will be self-assured and confident around women


“I will be self-assured and confident around women.”


The rabbit stops at the edge of the road.  The first truck speeds past.  Then the second.  The rabbit crosses the highway in front of the third.



I will not fear the unexpected.


“I will not fear the unexpected.”

The rabbit appears in the road, frozen by headlights™.



Pig Pen jams on his brakes and swerves to avoid the bunny.


The truck slews crazily. Missing the bunny by a whisker.


Pig Pen sees a bridge ahead.  If he doesn’t regain control, he will crash.  At the last second, he gets the rig together.


The rim of the a wheel tags the curb.  One of those toxic waste barrels falls out of the back and plunges to the water below.


A biohazard warning label is legible as the barrel slips beneath the surface.  Glowing toxic waste seeps from a gash in its side.  Spreading through the pool like a neon ink.

*Note:  We didn’t actually write this script, just made some minor modifications for entertainment purposes only (please don’t sue us).  Also, bonus points for the first person to leave a comment with the actual title of this film.

Episode 30: 30-Seconds to Mediocrity

Attn: My Dear Paidion & Nocturnusrex,

I am Mr. Steve Martin, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New

York City. My residential address is as follows. 160 Central Park South,

New York United States and my Tel Number is REDACTED, I am one of those

that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they

refused to pay me, I had paid over $50,000 while in the US, trying to get

my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel to WASHINGTON D.C with all my compensation

documents, And I was directed by the ( F B I) Director to contact Mr. David

Later, who his a representative of the ( F B I ) and a member of the

COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, currently in Nigeria.and I contacted him and

he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through

emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment.

Right now I am the most happiest man on earth because I have received my

compensation funds of $15 Million Us Dollars Moreover, Mr. David Later,

showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their

paymentsand I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email

address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those

people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you.

I will advise you to contact Mr. David Later.

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Name : Arcade Fire
Telephone Number: REDACTED

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you

and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them,

they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you

have nothing.

The only money I paid after I met Mr. David Later was just $390 for the

paper works, take note of that.

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Mr.

David Later so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing

with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind

of money to complete your transaction.

Thank You and Be Blessed.

Episode 27: Not To Be Confused With The Forever 27 Club

Last week you all had the distinct pleasure of hearing an unscripted, un-linked “Fireside Chat” episode of the Schlock.  Truthfully, that was probably a pretty accurate taste of what it would be like to be a fly on the wall when Nocturnusrex and Paidion sit down to tea.  And by tea of course I mean beer. This week we are back in fine fettle bringing you the very best* the internet has to offer.
