You've reached the Badass of the Week, your one-stop shop for all things badassery-related. You should probably be aware that this site features an unnecessarily copious amount of profanity, so if you are easily offended by that sort of thing, then this would be a good time to turn off your computer and join a convent.



You are looking at the second complete redesign of Badass of the Week, and the first that doesn't involve me sitting around hand-coding Notepad files using the same bullshit HTML tags I was using when I made "Ben's Home Page" on Geocities in 1994. It might take a second to get used to the new layout, but take deep breaths and we'll all get through this together.

I do want to draw your attention to two new things – first, I've started a comic strip called Badass Con Carne, drawn by my friend Manny Vega, that will be updated every Wednesday. It's basically a webcomic about Andrew Jackson, Nikola Tesla, and Vlad the Impaler living in an apartment together and working at the mall. It's going to be very weird but I've seen a handful of finished strips and I'm really proud of the way it's coming together. I hope you'll like it.

The second thing is that every article in the site has been indexed with Tags to make it easier to browse for what you're looking for. The Tags will be at the bottom of every article, and you'll be able to sort through them using drop-down menus on the Archive page. I have no doubt that in the last six months of manually copy-pasting stories from my website into this new Wordpress format and hand-entering tags, I fucked some stuff up, so if you see something awry or have any cool ideas you want to share, send them to me here.

Now, since I'd always said that it would take the end of human civilization to get me to stop using Notepad to update my website, here's a Badass that's tangentially related to today's Mayan Apocalypse.
