10 Worst Comic Book Movies of All Time: Intro

Summer is here, and with it comes another exciting slate of comic-book films, starting with Avengers: Age of Ultron and ending with inevitable disappointment. But while some of these films will invariably live up to the hype, some will more likely leave us temporarily entertained, but ultimately unsatisfied – and others will straight up suckContinue reading “10 Worst Comic Book Movies of All Time: Intro”

Mimi’s and Nikko’s Bogus Journey

A few days ago, Mimi and Nikko, two of the “stars” of the ratchet parade known as Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, set the internets ablaze with the “leak” of a sex tape. As usual, this is a concerted marketing effort on the part of two fame seekers who, in the absence of any discernibleContinue reading “Mimi’s and Nikko’s Bogus Journey”

“The F*%k is this S#*t?”: Miley Cyrus – Bangerz

Recently, I’ve been at odds with how to cover the unending headline grabbing antics of Miley Cyrus. For the better part of this year, she has been all over the place, due to her highly sexualized new image and full throated embrace of “ratchet” culture. There are some who think these are the hallmarks ofContinue reading ““The F*%k is this S#*t?”: Miley Cyrus – Bangerz”

Ben Affleck? Just More Proof that DC’s Cinematic Universe is Broken

Wow. Just wow. Warner Brothers had the gravy train with biscuit wheels. They’d been handed a Christopher Nolan trilogy, and a revived Superman movie. Marvel had a better plan and better execution of their films, in fact, Marvel hasn’t made a bad movie yet. But if you wanted that epic, massive superhero film you knewContinue reading “Ben Affleck? Just More Proof that DC’s Cinematic Universe is Broken”

“The F*@k Is This Sh#t?”: Lady Gaga’s Applause is The sound of one hand clapping

Since the beginning of her now infamous career, Lady Gaga has done many things right: She’s a capable, if unextraordinary songwriter, and she benefited from above average production that drove you to your feet and demanded your attention. She demanded that attention in other ways as well: Her public persona screams “Hey, look at me”Continue reading ““The F*@k Is This Sh#t?”: Lady Gaga’s Applause is The sound of one hand clapping”

The Hip Hop List: The Most Mediocre MCs of All Time

Since we’ve reviewed so many rappers for the upcoming 10 Greatest MCs of all time, I felt we should definitely include some of the interesting highlights from that list. My thinking was A) It would give people more insight into the criteria used to rank the rappers, and B) it would provide more opportunities forContinue reading “The Hip Hop List: The Most Mediocre MCs of All Time”

“The Filthy Fifteen”: Tom and Tom review the most vile songs of the 80’s (according to the PMRC)

If you have kids, turning on the today’s radio is a bit like playing Russian Roulette with your children’s ears – the only difference being that all but one of the chambers are full. Almost every song on the radio is filled to the brim with innuendo, drug references, and filth-flarn-filth as far as theContinue reading ““The Filthy Fifteen”: Tom and Tom review the most vile songs of the 80’s (according to the PMRC)”

“The F*@k Is This Sh#t?”: Beyoncé – Bow Down/I Been On

While scouring the internet in search of some playable good music, I ran across a new track from Mrs. Carter, which, at first listen, probably should have been titled Beyoncé Goes Ratchet. The Hit-Boy produced double track first sees Bey taking shots at some of her rivals (who she declines to mention by name), thenContinue reading ““The F*@k Is This Sh#t?”: Beyoncé – Bow Down/I Been On”

Lighten Up: The Harlem Shake was always ridiculous

As I get older and the responsibilities that come with age become heavier, I find myself unable to keep up with many of the viral sensations that seem to pop up on the internet almost all the time these days. I only became aware of PSY’s “Gangnam Style” after it had surpassed over a billionContinue reading “Lighten Up: The Harlem Shake was always ridiculous”
