Just like everyone else on the planet, I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi last month. I, for one, loved it, and I was surprised by the backlash I saw online as soon as I checked social media after my first viewing. While watching the film, I kept thinking, “Wow, this film is really subverting typical Star Wars tropes, and I am glad Rian Johnson took these risks,” Many people did not share my sentiment. And I can understand. […]
Saul was a great character on Breaking Bad, but he also seemed kind of one-dimensional. Would anyone give a fuck about Saul’s past and how he got to where he is in the context of Breaking Bad? Turns out, we do, and it’s one of the best shows currently airing on television. […]
Mental illness isn’t an easy thing to depict in the media, but when it’s done well, it should be celebrated. Doctor Who, of all things, had an episode that dealt with depression, and it did so in a very respectful manner. I haven’t seen too many other shows tackle the topic of depression. Mental illness is a serious thing, and it can’t really be talked about and dealt with in a single episode of a show. Along comes “You’re The Worst”…. […]

Every day, in almost every form of social media, someone is complaining about something Kanye said, bitching about his music, loathing his wife, and getting irrationally angry about someone who they claim not to care about. No longer will I hide in the shadows. Here, my dear readers, is why I like Kanye West. […]
Artists don’t have to grow up with me. They have no obligation to do anything other than whatever the fuck they want. In fact, I prefer they do precisely that. But as a fan, it’s difficult for me to keep following a band if they’re not growing up with me. Sure, I can put on an old punk record for nostalgic value and be able to fully rock out to it, but I can’t relate to it anymore. I’m not that angry teenager anymore. I can still put on NIN’s “Broken” and rock the fuck out when the mood strikes, but as a 35 year old who is in a decent place in his life, songs like “Wish” doesn’t speak to me the way it did 20 years ago.

“You want it all and you can’t have it. It’s in your face but you can’t grab it.” Remember that song? Remember the band who did it? That’s right. Faith No More. “Smiling with the mouth of the ocean. Then I’ll wave to you with the arms of the mountains.” Remember that song? No? That’s also by Faith No More… […]
