Look Bitch, You Knew I Was a Pirate

March 21, 2014 18

In late August 2013, Ben and I had a table at Intervention 4. (We’ll be back again next year and I swear to glob I better see some of you guys there. I digress…). During slow periods I occasionally get to shop around at Artists Alley.

The Case Against Binge Watching

March 6, 2014 1

Binge watching is nothing new. It’s been around since people were able to tape episodes onto VHS so they could watch their favorite shows as they please.

I saw it on Pinterest and by god if it’s on Pinterest it’s going to work, right?

Yeah, well. First attempt was an utter fail. A mass of gritty, buttery stick pretzels melded together by a layer of shitty chocolate that melts as soon as you look at it wrong.

Not to be undefeated by diabetes, I tried again. The result was an orgasmically delicious sweet and salty treat. […]

X Number of Articles Proving Buzzfeed Has Already Jumped the Shark

October 31, 2013 0

Buzzfeed is a seemingly unstoppable machine of cranking out recycled material, stolen–er, BORROWED– from other websites, and pieced together into some new collective theme. Most of the time it’s funny, or at least entertaining, and almost always addictive.

Look! An article about the weirdest snacks! CLICK. Look! Miley Cyrus did something crazy again! CLICK. Before you know it, an hour has passed and you have 20 tabs open.

Recently though, some of their articles (or, “listicles” as they’ve been known to be called, a word that sounds like an abbreviation of “left testicles”) are scraping the bottom of the barrel. And let’s face it, most of it is completely unoriginal. I’ve compiled a list to prove that Buzzfeed has indeed Jumped the Shark. BUZZCEPTION! […]
