Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

the pattern

The lead singers of 3 out of 4 of my favorite bands are either vegeterian, or vegan. Is this a sign?

Justin Cathal Geever (best known by his stage name Justin Sane, born February 21, 1973) is the guitarist and singer/songwriter (along with bassist Chris Barker) of the political punk-rock band Anti-Flag. […] Justin was the youngest in a working class family, and cites his parents as one of his inspirations. They opened the first vegetarian restaurant in Pittsburgh, inspiring Justin to become a vegetarian and animal rights advocate, a lifestyle he continues to this day.


Russ Rankin is the lead vocalist for […] former Hardcore-Punk band Good Riddance. […]

Rankin is a member of PETA and leads a straight edge and vegan lifestyle.


Tim McIlrath (born November 3, 1979) is the guitarist and lead singer for the American melodic hardcore band Rise Against. He is also a vegetarian, supports animal rights and actively promotes PETA with his band.


Lou Koller, the singer of Sick Of It All, doesn’t seem to be vegetarian, but the drummer is.
