My name is Grant J. Kidney. I’m a businessman, social critic and independent thinker.
I own a successful graphic design firm called Vril Studio. I also serve an important advisory role at a major technology company based in California. In the past I did work for the Elon Musk inspired Hyperloop startup- and was also a graphic artist for the parent company of USA Today.
My first love though is speaking and writing concerning the hot button issues of our time. I began my foray into the world of social commentary back in 2008 when I launched what was called ‘The Grant J. Kidney Revolution’. I was hugely popular on the now defunct social network, Myspace, and even authored my first book (with a later revision published under a new title) during this era.
I started out as a proponent of very deep, right wing sentiment and interspersed this with my own unique splash of humor and other delectable inanities. Right wing, yes- but ‘God fearing’, no. I was more or less a male version of Ayn Rand mixed with a little Anton LaVey back in those days. If you don’t know who these people are, look them up.
Then in 2011, after a series of life changing circumstances, I went full on left-wing and liberal, changing up my entire schtick- this time launching a new blog and podcast that really started picking up a lot of steam during the 2012 U.S. Presidential elections. I actually interviewed several high profile people for my blog including filmmaker Peter Joseph, futurist Jacque Fresco and documentarian, Holland Van Den Nieuwenhof.
The large body of work that I had conducted during this era was erased as far back as I could go when, in 2013, I ultimately threw in the towel and ‘quit’ the world of politics and social commentary outright. This was a trying time in my life. A lot had been brewing with respect to relationships, careers and the like, and I just felt it was time to move on to something new.
The decision to remove from the web as much as I could of all of my hard work and efforts is deeply regretted. I am thankful however that in 2016, I decided to pick up the broken pieces of my life and begin anew with confidence and strength.
It took a lot to shake me from my liberal daze, but today I am happy to report that I am back at square one, believing what I had believed before. I love my country, am a huge proponent of the second amendment, believe firmly that our borders must be secured and that our Constitution must be upheld at all costs.
Admittedly, I am not for everyone. I’m a strange cat with an even stranger outlook on a wide range of subject matter. Everything from art to politics to criminal justice, sex, quantum physics and pop culture is territory upon which I gleefully tread.
Nothing is sacred. The world is my playground. My name is Grant J. Kidney and it’s a very good pleasure to meet your acquaintance.
