Welcome to Morbid Optimism
This site filled with social commentary, ideas, satire and miscellaneous crap. M.O. is currently contextually supported by four writers, Morbid Optimist, One Mountain, Charles Murdock, and Cynical Sister.
Morbid Optimist: 27 years old and is currently a student. He lives in San Diego, which really is a cool city, but the cost of living there is ridiculous. Originally from Sacramento (which might also explain his natural bitterness), he seems to have a unique outlook; although, if what he says upsets you, get over it, he's here for fun, not to change your life.
One Mountain: He rode in on a white woman, cummin round the mountain some 27 years past. The world saw fit to displace his poor soul in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he all but perished. Famished and destitute, he was nursed back to health by a sex-starved cougar who needed to be needed. He now lives amoung the local mormon tribe disseminating his tales of terrible misery encountered in his many persuits of the great beaver pelts of the west.
Charles Murdock: He was born a poor black child. Some point in his early twenties his parents broke the news that he was adopted from a white family, and would have to leave his small country town and set forth on a new path. Still filled with pride and the type of publicty one gets from seeing their name in print, he cast away the phone book and headed for hollywood. After a series of comidic events he landed in San Diego as an unemployed writer just looking to be noticed.
Cynical Sister: An enigmatic part of the Morbid Optimism team, Cynical Sister has yet to supply the administration with a description or bio. We just assume she's a raging bitch.
Why M.O. was started: Because all the cool kids have their own URL.
Why have ads on M.O?: As mentioned above, Morbid is unemployed. Being unemployed doesn't quite offer the financial freedom one might expect; Don't worry though, the $16 earned from ads over the last two years have done wonders for us.
