It's 2015 and I Don't Use Twitter

Twitter jail icon

"You're not on Twitter!?" People look at me like I still have Tom in my Top 8. Suddenly I'm Stone Age, old school, even a little rebellious. I'm an outcast, a recluse. I think I'm just misunderstood. Read More »

How to Look for the Positive in Everything But the Test Results

Rose color glasses

I bet we all have a lot of embarrassing things we did when we were younger. I know I do. I can remember when I was little my parents used to monitor the things I watched on television so I wouldn't repeat anything I heard or saw at school. So, naturally I grew up watching a lot of History Channel and Animal Planet. Read More »

How White Couples React When a Black Man Shows Up

Black man swagger

To be fair, I usually only ever get negative reactions from white men when approaching a white couple. And it's really aggravating, because I only want to honestly steal a man's girlfriend about 10% of the time. Read More »

An Open Letter to Filmmakers from a Critic

Film critic blogger badge

I've been a fan of the cinema for a very, very long time, guys. I've seen everything, from Star Wars to that obscure Filipino-American microbudget drama-comedy-horror film from 1997 that you've probably never heard of. Read More »

Cowboy crying

My roommate was pointing his new revolver at different things around the house when he made the remark that he wished he could be a cowboy back in the cowboy days, because those were better, simpler times. Read More »

Man with hand on face in disappointment

Soon after people graduate from college, seasoned professionals almost universally advise these young adults to "network." And by this they mean: get to know lots of people in various different industries and walks of life. Read More »

The Next Generation of Curse Words

Kid with sunglasses on raising middle finger

Our society is in desperate need of new curse words. Gone are the days when "fuck" was socially shocking, and my personal favorite curse phrase "god damn it" just doesn't seem to get the same rise out of people it once did. My generation has even started to use these words as sentence, as if they were the new "uh" or "um." Read More »

Golf is for Retards

Curved golf club swing

I don't understand golf.

I know, I'm male, so all my DNA should be pushing me towards lowering my golf score. Salmon go upstream, my golf score goes downstream. Plus I'm self-employed. Even more reason to get that club membership so I can do some deals over "tee" and crumpets. Read More »

Why the Beach Blows

Cat hates the beach

You step into the ocean. You wonder what insensitive, sociopathic creatures are swimming around your feet. Maybe a shark. Maybe minnows. Maybe horseshoe crabs. They're all scary. They can all do you harm. They don't care about you. They don't know you and would rather eat you than get to know you. This alone is disconcerting. Read More »

The Unavoidable Sexual Plight of Man: Would I Bang Her?

Man pondering with hand on face

Men are fraught with a psychological condition. An exhausting mental burden that is impossible to shake. The average Joe may appear to be contained on the outside, but on the inside he struggles with the cavalcade of sexual thoughts manifesting in his consciousness on a daily basis. Read More »

How Bad is the Entourage Movie? THIIIIIS BAD

As many people familiar with the Entourage franchise will know, the series focuses around the escapades of a movie star, his three friends, and his agent. However, what you may not know is that the quality of the Entourage movie is so low, it makes Citizen Kane look like a much better Citizen Kane. Read More »

Reaffirming My Faith in Humanity

Old man with his fox sleeping

Sometimes I wonder why people could be so depressed. The world we live in is so amazing and beautiful, and we should all be thankful that we're in it. I think everyone should close their eyes, and take a minute or two every day to realize how great of a gift life really is. Read More »

The SNL and Game of Thrones Controversies are Sucking the Life Out of TV

Louis CK rub his eyes in a Shakespeare outfit in disgust

This past weekend there was a lot of controversy over subject matter on two popular television programs. A quick search for either "SNL controversy" or "Game of Thrones controversy" will yield the necessary context if you're not already aware. The reason these issues generated any notoriety seems to stem from widely available public access to digital soapboxes. The voiceless (who should remain so) armed with Shift+3 can express outrage over anything they see/hear, and all of a sudden the angry mob with torches and pitchforks is digitally mobilized without having to get off the couch.

Infrequently Answered Questions

Starburst flavors

Q: Why doesn't the Earth fall down?

A: The Earth does fall down. In fact, the Earth is constantly falling down. It's a good thing too, because it would look pretty silly standing still, doing nothing. Gravity is a funny thing. An artiste! I'm serious. Read More »

When You Regret 95% of Everything You Have Ever Said

Man wearing a small hat with a surprised look on his face

Ouch! Where did that come from? You were happily minding your own business when all of a sudden, it hit you. Why in Hades did you say that? A whole five years have passed since the utterance first departed your lips and you moved on to an existence with a fairly clear mind and conscience, yet you now find yourself cringing as though the last five years never happened. As though what you said all those years ago has just been pulled—warm if a little over-cooked—from the oven for the very first time, and is now stinking up the kitchen all over again. Read More »
