Hell's Playlist: 23 Classic Hits Ruined by Repetition, Part 2

« Back to Part 1 (the first 12 songs)

13. "All My Lovin" by The Beatles

While this song does not suck (no Beatle song outright sucks except "Revolution 9 #," and I blame Yoko and bad acid for that one), it is one of the most played-out, over-covered, and safest of Beatle tunes. It also ruined the rhyme "Kiss You" and "Miss You" for all time. Again, would it fucking kill you to play "Strawberry Fields" or "Happiness is a Warm Gun"? Read More »

Hell's Playlist: 23 Classic Hits Ruined by Repetition

Classic rock guitarist on fire

A few years back I worked for a time in a fabric showroom. It was an old Italian firm that had been around for most of the 20th century and dealt in very high-end silks, damasks, and wallpaper. This place sold only to the trade, and my job was to fetch samples of fabric for the decorators to show their clients. Read More »

Dear Craigslist, I'm the Missed Connection

Craigslist Missed Connection

Let's face facts: when we're sleeping we do weird things. My roommate let me know that when I fall asleep I twitch a lot to the point of banging my head against the wall. But aside from the fact that my roommate stares at me while I sleep like a princess, and that I turn into a self-harming maniac with Tourette syndrome when comatose, this just goes to show that as much as we think we know ourselves, we're not totally aware of everything.

If you're probably like me, then you probably like looking at politics. The sound of words like "congress" and "oil" intrigue you. ("What do they mean?") The idea of wearing a suit is something you've often thought about thinking about. Read More »

3 Retro Cartoons That Deserve a Reboot (And 3 That Don't)

Skeletor is mad and sulking

The financial success of the Transformers films has proven that rebooting retro cartoons can be big, big business. Many people welcome an occasional dose of nostalgia such as this, even if it does come with farting robots and a non-naked Megan Fox, as it gives the public something that they are easily familiar with and thus can easily invest in.

Four Things You Learn as a College Procrastinator

Do It post-it notes

One of my main problems (well, other people call it a problem, I prefer to think of it as a lifestyle choice) in college was procrastination. I was a world heavyweight champ two semesters running for procrastination. If procrastinators are uniting tomorrow, I'm showing up next week. Read More »

So You're About to See Someone Get Stabbed

Lately I've been using a lot of public transportation to get around, and as you might expect, I've seen some pretty shocking things. Then again, due to the gratuitous amount of shocking things in popular culture today, I'm usually unfazed by watching children crying in public or homeless people literally masturbating right next to me. Sadly, you just sort of...get used to it. Read More »

How Guys Flirt with Girls on Social Media

Guy flirting thru social media

Guys, when you want to flirt with a girl, your communication options depend on how well you know her. For the sake of simplicity, I will analyze two different scenarios. The first scenario is if you already know the girl, meaning you have mutual friends, you're already friends with her on Facebook, and if you see her out you hug her and have a five-second bullshit conversation.

Resident Evil nemesis

In the film industry, there's a rarely used technical phrase used to describe a movie so tragically awful that watching it actually becomes entertaining. Like a puppy pissing in its own mouth, or a sandwich so old that biologists use its tenants as evolution studies. Read More »

A study that came out in 2006 shows that aerobic exercise increases brain volume in aging humans. A separate study from 2009 reports that standard aerobic exercise is just as effective as anti-depressant medication in treating patients with clinical major depression. From these studies, I have concluded that exercise is good for you. Read More »

So it's that wonderful time of year again. The time of year when we reflect on the few good times shared by pilgrims and Native Americans, when turkeys become the "it girl" of family meals, and when many people travel back to their hometowns to celebrate a great holiday I like to call: Thanksgiving.

Funny turkey about to be cooked

The weather is getting colder, pumpkin is the new black, and your extended family is currently making plans to show up unannounced at your house. This can only mean one thing: it's holiday season! And what better way to show those folksy relatives of yours that you are the domestic diva they always hoped you would be (despite still renting in a not-so-great part of town and living common law with a penniless photographer boyfriend) than to serve the most amazing and traditional home-cooked meal they've ever eaten.

What the 25 Most Popular Films of 2013 Taught Us

Zach Galifinakis and Ken Jeong in The Hangover III

Films are a form of entertainment. Occasionally, though, between the explosions and valleys of sharknados, there is the occasional life lesson to be found. These lessons are what help elevate film to a higher art form, and can teach us about life, love, and how to correctly dispose of a genocidal alien military leader who has just escaped the phantom zone.
