Hot Time: Surviving Summer in the City

If you’ve noticed a burning sensation on your exposed skin recently, you are not alone. The source of dat hot fire is not an STI (hopefully), the latest Kendrick Lamar verse or runaway deep fryer, hell-bent on destroying us all; it’s just the sun! In case you’ve only recently joined…

Particle Accelerated

Last issue, I’d mentioned that I’ve been watching a lot of MSNBC clips on YouTube. (I haven’t had cable television for quite some time, so I’d been spared watching any of the 24-hour news networks for a while; however, YouTube’s powerful algorithms were well aware that I enjoyed watching clips…

Reality Bites

We’re still alive. I have to admit, I had my doubts as I woke up on the morning of June 12. Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump were having their summit brouhaha in Singapore, and I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d wake up with a warhead in my lap. I mean,…

Re: Your Hatred of Chiggers

Dear Caroline Picard: I’m writing regarding your recent article posted on GoodHousekeeping.com entitled “How to Get Rid of Chiggers and Soothe Chigger Bites.” What kind of monster are you, Caroline Picard? You sit there on your high perch from the pages of Good Housekeeping and judge me like your shit…

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish!

We have a problem, people; a disturbingly sexy problem and we need to start discussing it now. If we stick to our current path, this problem will become all but a certainty. Our reckoning will shake the very foundation of who we are as people; it will change how we…

Mitt Happens

Funny Business

At this point, I feel like I know Michael Avenatti well enough that I feel as though I should send him a Christmas card or something this year. I don’t really like or dislike the man, but every time I turn on the TV, there he is with that steely…

Privileged Information

Being the personal attorney for the President of the United States certainly has its perks, but getting raided by the FBI is probably not one of them. Unfortunately for Michael Cohen, this is now his life. Cohen is reportedly under criminal investigation over his personal business dealings, whatever that means….

Take Me Out to the LOL Game

It’s always a great relief to me when the baseball season starts. I’m not sure why since I’m a lifelong New York Mets fan, and just about every season plays out like a 162-act tragedy, with each painful disappointment more excruciating than the last. But I’ve long suspected that I’m…

Sold Out Again

Black Panther looks like a great movie. I love the action, adventure, story and diversity portrayed in the previews and clips I’ve seen online. From what I’ve heard, it’s quite possibly the best Marvel movie yet. Unfortunately, I’ll probably have to wait until it comes to On Demand to see…
