The Most Violent Element in Society Is Ignorance

I was going to write this column about the Hobo Johnson controversy or some other meaningless bullshit, but I’m pissed. Pissed that another young black man, 22-year-old Stephon Clark, was gunned down by Sacramento Police. Pissed that there aren’t more protesters on the streets. Pissed that centrists stay silent, waiting…

Finding the Perfect Man(’s Best Friend)

You’ve seen them strutting around Midtown, tap-tapping their feet like they own the block, looking at this tree or that tree—much in the same way you do when you ask yourself, “Would this leaf pattern look good on Instagram?” You’ve gawked at them shamelessly (seriously, put your eyes back in…

C.R.E.A.M.

It is inarguable that the Wu-Tang Clan is made up of geniuses. They have multiple classic albums under their belts and managed to fleece pharma-bro Martin Shkreli out of $2 million for an exclusive copy of their double album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. Wu-Tang created an empire that…

The Flusher King

I suppose I should start this with a bit of a warning: You may consider this an “over share.” However, I think it’s important that you should know. Last night I had a lengthy ordeal with my toilet bowl. It wasn’t a messy affair, but it was annoying nonetheless. You…

The Big Sick

Illness does not always breed misery, but as you get older, it sure seems to throw a wrench in the works more often than it used to. I am currently home sick with a stuffy, yet somehow runny nose, a mucus-filled chest that never ceases to cough up more phlegm…

Zeus and Hieroglyphs

I realize the two things mentioned in the title of this column don’t really relate to one another, other than that they’re both old and outdated…but hear me out. I just recently got an iPhone 7, which I guess is also old and outdated, but for me it feels like…

All Eyes on You

Happy Holidays! I hope your end-of-year festivities were full of friends, family, food, drink and whatever else it is that makes your heart cockles warm this time of year. Now that we are turning the page on 2017, which was the most tumultuous year I can remember, we look ahead…

Celebrating New Year’s Eve

We’ve all been slipping. Every year, the people bow down to holiday favorites like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, but what about the rest of the holiday gods? We’ve been giving them the cold shoulder for a long time and it’s finally starting to catch up to us. Take…
