About Kevin Stadt
Kevin Stadt is the fevered dream of a jabbering lunatic caged in a state-run facility for the criminally insane. Or he's the human avatar for a pale, eyeless parasite feeding on undigested arthropod chunks in the bowels of an alien swamp eel. Or maybe he's just a janky glitch in the simulation. Whatever the case may be, he seems to delight in stringing together horribly weird and dark combinations of words. For the love of God, don't visit him at kevinstadt.com. No good can possibly come of it.
