Milk Doesn’t Do My Body Good

From grade school through the first few years of high school, I began my day with a bowl of cereal, preferably Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a cup of coffee and a rerun of Sanford and Son or What’s Happening!! on BET. It was a great way to start my day until…

The Best People

I’m not sure I know what a hero is. Sure, I’m well-versed in comic book lore and know a fair bit about mythology and folklore, but these are archetypes, and, you know, pure fucking fantasy. Heroes in the real world are an entirely different matter. They work for the Peace…

There are dinosaurs amongst us and they are out for blood! I’ve seen them lurking around my hood just waiting for someone to start something. I thought I had chosen a safe place to live, but I’m starting to think that I was wrong. In fact, if you don’t hear…

Cheers to Your Health

It’s been a crazy close to August 2018: Senator John McCain, one of the few judicial voices left in the GOP, succumbed to brain cancer. Paul Manafort was convicted on eight of 18 charges brought against him with another trial on the way; Michael Cohen pled guilty to eight of…

Have you heard about Alex Jones? You would know if you had; the man is unforgettable. If you haven’t, this vile creature hosts a multi-platform, conspiracy theory pushing shit-show called, Infowars. Jones recently had his podcasts, YouTube videos and Facebook pages suspended or deleted for making discriminating, hateful and homophobic…

Now That’s What I Call Popular Culture

It’s just a function of life to have nostalgic feelings about the past—to idealize your youth. Unfortunately for me, I blossomed from adolescence into adulthood in the late 1980s to early ‘90s, so all the pertinent experiences of my past are cloaked in torn jeans and drab plaid. My parents…

Space Balls

With all the weird shit going on here on Earth, I completely forgot about Space Force. I was in a dollar store when I first heard about Space Force, looking to buy aluminum foil (believe it or not, not to make a hat out of to shield my thoughts from…

License to Drive

I’m old now, but I still have my memories. Certain events in my life have etched themselves into the folds of my cerebral cortex and cannot be shook. One of these “events” took place over a series of several weeks in the summer of 1995. I was 15-and-a-half and (at…

2001: A Travel Guide

Space is a crazy place; or at least Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke would have us think so. These two giants of film and science fiction teamed up in the late ‘60s to show the world what they thought the universe might look like and what our place in…
