Radiant Future: El Trumpodante

Welcome to the new-look, fully-ruggedised, alternatively-factual Radiant Future site. If you, like so many others, make your own decisions based largely upon information, then you have come to the right place. Are you interested in bridging chasms of Radiant Future-lessness with bridges of Radiant-Futureful opportunity? Then your instincts have served you well.

Here’s a simple test. Are you a good guy? We will make you feel glad. Are you a bad guy? We will make you feel sad. It’s that straightforward. If you are a woman, please move right along, there’s nothing to see here.

Have you heard all that horrible music out there? Sad! Fake music! We know about music but nothing about the inner workings of music. Nobody knew that music was so horribly complicated! We are going to make the Future Radiant again! We are working on it, and it will be Radiant well ahead of schedule. We guarantee a big, beautiful Future which is totally Radiant in every way!

Here at Radiant Future we are all close personal friends of Nigel Farrago, Donald Trumpovitschki, Marine La Penis-Envie, Frankly Petrified, Wild Gertie and all those other loons. So it will come as no surprise that here you can find all Radiant Future’s lifestyle-enhancing products. Follow the links to securely purchase your item. Clicking on a cover pic will whisk you off to a lovingly hand- crafted info page for that particular aural delight. But, being the discerning and informed person that you are, you probably knew that.

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    1. Martin Post author

      Well, here’s what I suggest, to centre yourself. Get a friend, if you have one, to measure the distance from where you are standing to the wall on your left. And then tell him (or her, it works just as well with women) to measure to the wall on your right. If the measurements are the same – bingo! You’re in the middle. If not, just adjust your position slightly, and try again. Hope this helps.

  2. My Response
