The phenomenon known as Pokemon is almost 20 years old. My daughter was born not too long after the game’s debut in Japan, so by the time it was a Big Deal in America, she was at prime age to start catching the little buggers. Somehow, it never fully caught on in our house so I didn’t learn much about them until this year. […]
For those of you who have been participating in our chat room on GroupMe, first of all, cool! Thanks for participating! We love interacting with our fans and shooting the shit throughout slow work days.
We discuss many things in the chat room. Since it is an extension of our show, the topics of conversation tend to be humorous poop stories, random Fuck/Marry/Kill challenges, and discussions of our mutual interests. One day, Star Wars came up in the chat room. … […]
“Hey,” my friend says. “Have you heard about this thing where people get locked in a room with a colony of fire ants? It’s all the rage.”
“Yeah, I saw an ad for it like twice a day for the past 6 months. It looks stupid. Why the fuck would I want to do that?”
My friend shrugs. “I dunno. It could be fun.”
“Absolutely nothing about this sounds fun.” […]
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. […]
My teenage daughter recently got hooked on a smartphone app called Neko Atsume, which simply means “Cat Collection.” At first I sort of brushed it off with a “aww, that’s cute, my daughter is such a weeb” attitude. I don’t typically like CUTE things. It’s just not my style. And for glob’s sake I do not need another silly smartphone game to suck my time away. Don’t you know, I installed it anyway and was completely shocked at how much I loved it. […]
We were inspired to compile this list after the second series finale of X-Files. Note that this is not the WORST story endings so much as the ones that built up our hopes to impossible levels, only to let us down completely.
It should go without saying that this list will contain spoilers, but there are some redacted sections to cover some details and save your delicate eyes.
As always, let us know what we forgot or got wrong. That’s what the internet is for! […]
Most people only know Blur from the catchy commercial success of “Song 2,” otherwise known as “That song that goes ‘Whoo-hoo!’ a lot and my British isn’t good enough to understand the rest.” Some may also remember the 90’s promiscuity anthem “Girls and Boys” or the silly Britpop media swordfight versus Oasis.
Here’s an introduction to the rest of the band’s music. […]
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so why not celebrate it with one of our favorite traditional love stories from film and television? Pop in one of these DVDs, and you and your valentine are guaranteed to have a romantic evening! […]
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. […]
Fans of the show know that I’m a bit obsessed with the show Steven Universe. In the off-season I find myself coming up with strange headcanon to make my world view more interesting.
In addition to Garnet’s voice, lent by the talented singer-songwriter Estelle, the show occasionally features other celebrity voice cameos.
What if these singers are Gems from the Homeworld, in disguise? And if that’s the case, wouldn’t there potentially be many more? […]
Monday morning brought the release of Ryan Adams’ cover album of Taylor Swift’s “1989”. As a fan of Ryan Adams, and a closet fan of “Shake It Off”, I had been looking forward to this for a while. As I did my routine morning scroll through Facebook, I noticed a few people (mostly Millennials but not all) were wondering who the hell Ryan Adams was.
I know this isn’t nearly as bad as the people who had never heard of Beck after he won a Grammy and the ones who were wondering who that Paul McCartney guy was that Kanye was collaborating with. But, still … […]
In general I just hate rom-coms. HaaaAAAAte. You have to imagine me saying that with a lot of hot, phlegmy breath drawn out over at least seven seconds in order to hear the tone of disgust in my voice. I went with my friend because she’s going through a break-up and you kind of have to make sacrifices in times like this, right? So of course I suggested that we meet at one of the local movie theaters that serves beer, to take the edge off.
To my surprise… […]
Steven Universe debuted on November 4, 2013 on Cartoon Network. Its fanbase is tiny compared to its powerhouse cousins Adventure Time and Regular Show… but it is picking up steam every day. Moreover, fans of Steven Universe instantly bond with one another, like we’re all part of a very cool exclusive club.
Still, this gem (pun intended) of a show doesn’t get nearly the recognition it should, and I’m hoping to change that. […]
