Sneer Campaign, The Website
The Sneer Campaign is a collection of people hailing from around the world. It was founded in the early spring of 2015 by Dollissa and Amandoll, two dolls who don’t even really like dolls, unless they’re made of paper of course. Appearing occasionally is a cast of characters consisting of our various friends that are delightful in their unique ways.
We do all share similar traits too. For instance, we all believe in the goodness of Mr. Rogers, Carl Sagan, Peter Falk, and Secretariat the Famous Racehorse. (Or maybe some of them just go along with it because they’re tired of our constant proselytizing.) We enjoy quips, gossip, and delicious levels of cattiness. We are, all of us, deeply taken with the art of conversation. We never stop talking. Never.
Dollissa is a very small person who lives on the Sneer Compound in Covington, KY. Even though she is short and perpetually caffeinated, she is remarkably calm and even quiet. This is because she hates most noises and also movement. Her interests include: bees, making smart money moves, noise music, investments, trying to hold Haircut the Cat, expanding the empire, talking to Amandoll, consuming tea and coffee, and watching tv shows on the Internet.
On here, her duties involve caring for the technical aspects of the site, managing our calendars and products, and writing articles. She actually has a day job, which she actually loves, like some nerd living a dream.
Amandoll is one of those artistic types. She happily lives among the Sneer Houses, in Covington, Kentucky. She is an avid waster of time who strongly believes that there is no such thing as wasting time. Sometimes she finds herself in the throes of powerful bouts of productivity which is fortunate because she currently has, and will always have, a thousand projects. Amandoll loves the past, the future, earth, marionettes, masks, puppets and making things with her own two hands (and brain).
On this site, she draws all the pictures, makes the comics, creates the store content, and writes a fair amount.
Saxon is from Adelaide, Australia. She enjoys wordplay, pop culture, excellent music, social issues, and pithy remarks. There was no one better at SnapChat Humor. Of course that is definitely in the past tense because who even uses SnapChat anymore? Saxon is excellent for distracting us with syncing television shows together and with choice quality witty banter.
OMGJeremy of Indianapolis used to have his own site when the internet was new and meaner. On here, he mostly lets us use his old articles that aren’t about video games (you can see those at Retrovania) or Hentai (you can’t see those anywhere, thankfully). Since he lives relatively nearby, he visits the Sneer HQ with some regularity.
Erica is a Wisconsinite living in Colorado and identifies with both. She enjoys reading, tabletop rpgs, beetles and moths, history, Twin Peaks, and slowly turning her apartment into a rainforest by hoarding houseplants. An anthropologist and museum professional, she is possibly also Sneer Campaign’s biggest introvert and excels in devising ways to avoid conversations with strangers.
Daniel Haun is a tall man from the mountainous regions of Tennessee. A lifelong vegetarian, he seems to be a gentle sort, interested in such things as observational humor, crackpot theories, and basic mental health. Sometimes he writes for us partially because he wants to, and partially because he cannot stop himself. Sometimes it is because we make him write for us.
Billy Holiday is a Southerner. Currently, he makes his home in North Carolina. Billy’s interests lie in professional wrasslin, horror films of all kinds, old video games, gossip, and laughing too hard at mean remarks made during casual conversation. His role on this site is to yammer on about HIS day like some bitter old man eternally sitting in front of an old general store.
Tonyana is a professional tarot reader out of Cincinnati who provides us with monthly tarotscopes and is our mystical adviser on all matters. She is an adept Spiritualist and modern wonder. You are encouraged to use her services here.
CChris is a perpetual mystery who is rumored to live somewhere in Canada. He exists to make snide comments, perplex Amandoll daily, and inspire us by the hour. His persona is the foundation on which this entire site was built. He seldom contributes directly.
AlexT casts his sneers all the way from London, England. He has far-flung, wide-ranging interests and watches many documentaries. Has been known to go on adventures with us. His conversation skillz are top-notch and that is why you will often find that he is the co-star of a real life chat comic.
We also frequently mention, and are inspired by, our local and close friends. Some of them have written for us occasionally, and others haven’t YET. But, Manny, Fran, Mary Kate, Zach, Jamie, and especially Kevin are important elements of our sneering times.
