I miss you magnificent bastards.
There are a lot of people who’ve done rapping. Most of them were really bad and terrible and the faster we forget they ever rapped, the better. But some of them were pretty good! Or maybe they were just really enjoyable in the moment. It’s fun to think about those guys and gals.
There’s only one thing that’s somehow more upsetting than a Trump Presidency, and it’s this unending, mewling response from neo-liberal “pundits” and commenters. And I am so fucking sick of it.
We have elected a President who stands for xenophobia, racism, the end to women’s rights, the building of a wall, the closing of our borders, a willingness to emulate Putin or Kim Jong-un or even a desire to use nuclear weapons to replace diplomacy. We are a nation in distress. The United States now stands for, in the…
Boy the emotions sure are high for a random Tuesday in November. Need to cool off a bit? Celebrate? Hide in a broom closet to do some meth? Here’s the 2016 albums you need to really cement your desired aura on the most vexing, confounding day of the year.
Lovecraft is a master at crafting sentences. His vocabulary is superabundant and he almost always paints a wonderful picture—when he isn’t describing something as “indescribably” evil or awful or ugly, which he does fucking constantly. In spite of his tendency to describe something that’s supposed to be spooky as…
Update 10/27/16: With this complete, the decision has been made to convert it to a book. And I want your submissions:
This morning, an obituary ran in my local paper. It was for a friend of mine. He died far too young. He is the 14th person to die from my high school graduating class. This alone is sad enough, but his is a story of what could have been, what should have been.
After 25,000 words on what hip hop means to me it’s getting the book treatment, and now I want 600 words on what it means to you – good, bad, or ugly. As a group we can tell a better story, and I’ll gladly post royalties for that. You – yes, you – can get your essay printed.
Is this what the late 90’s sounded like? Just an endless playlist of Jock Jams on FM radio?
If this is going to turn into the lamest inter-city beef that’s ever existed, please fucking kill me now. First the Raptors, then the Jays, now Drake chalks up the third loss in the great 2016 Cleveland thwomping of Toronto. A loss is one thing, but this one came by default. A sickening, upsetting, wrong-headed…
Freeman McNeil: Good afternoon Mr. O’Connor. I appreciate you sitting down with me today.
By 1972, Pink Floyd was known for two distinct styles of music: Psychedelic Art House and soundtracks. The band had released six albums (included in these is the soundtrack for the film “More”), and two additional soundtracks - The Committee and Zabriskie Point. When they were asked to supply the soundtrack for the…
How’s your poop? Is it the right color? How about frequency—are you doing it once a day, regularly? Don’t bother answering (and especially not in the comments, please). The truth is, odds are whatever your answers, you’re doing just fine.
I watched the Jets play last night. It was a painful experience. I could lie and say that as a fan, I stayed up and watched the entire game. However, judging by what I saw in the first quarter and a half, I decided that I’d go to bed early. I can justify this, as I wake up at 5:00am every day, so hey - I was tired.…
In fairness, there’s an obligation to point out that Westworld, HBO’s new programming cornerstone, is 3 episodes into a 10 episode order. That’s not enough to definitively call any show anything other than “an utter catastrophe,” which, Westworld is not.
Sports is good. Everyone agrees about this. But what if our famous sports athletes played against each other in different sports than those they usually play? Good question, huh? Nobody has ever thought about it. Now’s your chance.
