About Us

In the fall of 2017 local physicist Jonathan B. Levine, Social Anthropologist Steven Stark, and Cryptobiologist Denny Plasser were having a pint of Kilt Klutcher at a local brewery.  As the evening progressed, Steven asked the group, “Do you know what this town needs?”  The responses varied from, “An enema?”, to “A kosher deli?”.  Finally in frustration, Steven shut them up and proclaimed, “A medium for sharing what the locals find amusing.”

With that small innocuous conversation the seeds of The Grand Beacon were planted.  The young seedling was abandoned and untended for nearly 6 months, when the trio regrouped and committed to sharing what they found funny.

The Grand Beacon is the outcome of that night of dark beer imbibing.  We hope you find some respite from the drudgery that is the normal media circus.
