Paying respects to this guy... sort of... Ok not really...

Happy President’s Day everyone! While this holiday really only matters to Americans, we’re going to take the day off and hit the slopes. I know everyone in the rest of the civilized world has to work today, but what you gonna do. Hey, we only get two weeks of paid vacation a year, we’ll take advantage [...]

Mötley Crüe, Public Enemy, Matt & Kim and an army of aging groupies flock to celebrate West Hollywood's most fabled street

Oh my lord, I just can’t keep this to myself anymore. I stands all I can stands and I can’t stands no more. I really don’t like to put down people trying to push music, even styles I don’t care for. In a perfect world, no one’s taste is better than another’s. But in the [...]


Quite possibly the most believable headline ever for the Globe. I mean, how much sense does this make? The raging paranoia (PATRIOT ACT, anybody?), the rampant mood swings, the belligerent attitudes (whoops, our bad Iraq!), the epic delusions of grandeur, the lies and cover-ups (paging Valerie Plame)…holy shit, George W Bush is a total cokehead!!!
