More Prince

Still bummed about Prince. Back in 2009 SPIN Magazine put out a compilation of modern artists covering the Purple Rain album to commemorate its 25th anniversary. The artists include Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, of Montreal, Riverboat Gamblers, etc. It’s an odd mix of artists and it seems only fitting that it be posted Continue reading More Prince

It’s about forgiveness. It’s about acceptance.

It’s about forgiveness. It’s about acceptance.

I’m learning to live without you now, But I miss you sometimes, The more I know, the less I understand, All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again, I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter, But my will gets weak, And my thoughts seem to scatter, But I Continue reading It’s about forgiveness.

Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo

Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo

Or put another way, Donald Trump is to politics what Kanye West is to music (shitty). They’re both only good because they keep telling us they’re good. I assure you, NEITHER are good, let alone great. To think that anything Trump says is either substantial or has political merit is to be completely ignorant to Continue reading Donald Trump is the Political Equivalent of a Monkey Flinging Poo

The Power of a Great Logo

The Power of a Great Logo

Apparently, the founders of Cafe Grumpy weren’t morning people. As a result, they created one of the smartest, and most effective, graphic designs for a coffee shop. Just genius…and really good coffee too (it probably won’t surprise you that the coffee is wicked strong).

Same Old Uncle Billy Horsesh*t

Same Old Uncle Billy Horsesh*t

If you revere “It’s a Wonderful Life” as much as most of…well, the world (excluding Donald Trump, who just really hates…well, everyone and everything, except himself), then you have probably looked over a pretty big plot point faux pas. The Onion’s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal sets the record straight.

USA! USA! USA!

USA! USA! USA!

No no, I don’t mean the United States of America. I mean the United States of Advertising (Bill Hicks). As a card-carrying member of the Democratic Party I wanted to watch the first debate last night on CNN. Now, I should point out, I don’t have television. I HAVE a television fer chrissakes, I am Continue reading USA! USA! USA!

Williamsburg, Brooklyn Has Jumped the Shark

Williamsburg, Brooklyn Has Jumped the Shark

For the past seven years, I’ve lived in Brooklyn. New York. Before moving to Williamsburg, the worldwide epicenter of hip, I lived in Billyburg’s kissing cousin, Greenpoint. Both have been subjected to an aggressive gentrification agenda. One of the most aggressive in recent years. With gentrification comes hipsters. A lot of hipsters. Revelation 9:3-10 “Then Continue reading Williamsburg, Brooklyn Has Jumped the Shark
