Cosmopolitics is an old, barely-used term that has something to do with separating politics from culture in such a way that irrational and unrealistic ideas can be discussed outside the realm of reality. Essentially, a way for the apolitical “Cosmopolitan” or “Globalist” with no desire to inform themselves in the age of information to talk… Continue reading The New Cosmopolitics: Will America Ever Come Back From This?
The Sordid State of Safe Injection Sites
This week, a Federal Judge in Philadelphia approved the city's (and the nation's) first "safe" heroin injection site for operation. The nonprofit organization, Safehouse, whose goal it is to establish legal opium dens all across the city, put up a long battle against various communities and attorneys over this proposal. However, one can't help but… Continue reading The Sordid State of Safe Injection Sites

Big ideas and bad actors: The death of modernity
It is a dark time. The few remaining American people of kind heart and mind on the political left have lost nearly all common sense and credibility (if they had any to begin with) and we are unable to come together for similar values and goals. How did we get here? Cognitive dissonance within certain… Continue reading Big ideas and bad actors: The death of modernity
The Historic Collapse of the Wissahickon
The strange death of the Wissahickon Valley has seemingly come out of nowhere. But with denial, hang-wringing, and a refusal to accept any accountability for their own domestic and social policies, the people of Philadelphia are ensuring it will only get worse.
Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple
Every time a seemingly random act of violence occurs, our brains rely on social and cultural clues to bring some sense of reason to what is potentially unreasonable. Our brains, however, have another natural response to contradicting stimuli or irrational behavior; and that's called "cognitive dissonance." Cognitive dissonance occurs when one is aware that something… Continue reading Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple

“Dangerous weeds” overtake Cook Wissahickon School
PHILADELPHIA--Public elementary school in the Wissahickon section of Philadelphia brands their weed-infested lot as a "meadow," Neighbors claim. While the excuse given seems to be that the overgrown and underserved corner lot, slowly overtaking the school's sign, is a beautiful garden and haven for local wildlife, the reality of the situation is that the weeds… Continue reading “Dangerous weeds” overtake Cook Wissahickon School
In a Dark Dark Web (and other stories)
Whether you're too young to remember, or the hyper-speed news cycle has rendered your long-term memory functionally obsolete, you may find it difficult to recall the tumultuous 1990s discussions about broad multimedia censorship. There have been violent video games since the 1970s, but the 90s really drove home the visceral content both figuratively and literally.… Continue reading In a Dark Dark Web (and other stories)

Sailor Twift InstaZine: Tha Spooktacular Issue (Oct. 2018)
As we get closer and closer to the fictional narrative of The Purge, people are angry, violence manifests out of anger and politicians stoke the flames of chaos by encouraging the political Left to engage in acts of physical and mental aggression on their opponents. Halloween is once again upon us; one of the key holidays… Continue reading Sailor Twift InstaZine: Tha Spooktacular Issue (Oct. 2018)

Rox Trash Radio, Ep. 206
A year end wrap-up with some of our favorite Philadelphia characters and how they've doomed us for 2018.
The Road to Star Wars: Episode IX
In my last Star Wars-heavy article, I put forth an honest and complete review of The Last Jedi. I can't fully comprehend the level of hatred the film is getting; but I think it's mainly based on what I referred to as "broken nostalgia" and perhaps a little bit of good ol' fashioned butt-hurt over not getting… Continue reading The Road to Star Wars: Episode IX

Is Philly’s Octavius Catto Monument a Warning?
Despite being oversaturated with historic monuments, murals, structures, and artifacts in the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and specifically the city of Philadelphia, it is endlessly troubling how detached our citizens seem to be from that history. Recently, a small, but nevertheless obnoxious, group of individuals led by Councilwoman-at-Large and Asian spirit who kills you seven… Continue reading Is Philly’s Octavius Catto Monument a Warning?
Virtue Signaling Has No Home Here
We've all seen those atrocious virtue signaling Hillary Clinton Bandwagon "Hate Has No Home Here" signs, darkening the doorsteps of those desperate to say to their friends, neighbors and colleagues, "I don't know about you, but I'M certainly not a racist." Like many other Democratic strategies, the HHNHH campaign was created by children and transformed into a money-making scheme… Continue reading Virtue Signaling Has No Home Here
Philly Combats History with SJW Propaganda
Yesterday, a publicly funded organization called Monument Lab unveiled its latest Fall installment at Dilworth Park in Center City Philadelphia. The "monument" is an 800 lb. statue of an afro pick topped with a "Black Power" fist...because a slogan and symbol associated with African American terrorist groups like The Black Panthers is seen by the social… Continue reading Philly Combats History with SJW Propaganda
Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage
Ask yourself a question. What moral authority do you have over your neighbor? If your answer is anything other than "None, whatsoever," we have a serious problem on our hands. We live in an environment right now where large sections of our populous and governing bodies, regardless of intention, are both shameless and authoritarian. Shameless, through… Continue reading Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage
You Might Be a Fascist If…
I'd like to say that violent protests and hyperbolic political discourse in the streets throughout our country was a new phenomenon; that our "Cheeto Dictator" President--or whatever--has inspired some insane reactionary hate movement. Fortunately, despite what your illiterate Facebook friends may think, that's not the case. But unfortunately, this kind of assault on western values, common… Continue reading You Might Be a Fascist If…

1990 to Now, A Perspective on Horror Films by the Decade: Part II of V
I don’t know why, but November was a popular month for horror in 1990. The three films named in this survey released that year resided in the month of November. Tim Curry as “Pennywise the Clown” would scare a generation of youngsters in the TV miniseries based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-selling novel IT. To… Continue reading 1990 to Now, A Perspective on Horror Films by the Decade: Part II of V

You’re Fired: Damage Control over #GoldenShowerGate
BuzzFeed News should be an oxymoron to anyone competent enough to know what an "oxymoron" is; but it seems that many individuals have a problem differentiating the bizarre and tainted from the verifiable information in the media. An anonymous 4Chan /pol user (which is admittedly redundant) has taken responsibility for fabricating a series of accusations… Continue reading You’re Fired: Damage Control over #GoldenShowerGate

Grace, Chewbacca & The Deplorables: 2016 Year in Review
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIViy7L_lo8 At the end of each year, it's customary to reflect backward instead of looking forward. Pretty much the only forward-thinking we ever do is related to some doomed-to-fail resolution that we wind up breaking within the first month of the new year when the first celebrity we kind of liked dies. Pass the cigarettes,… Continue reading Grace, Chewbacca & The Deplorables: 2016 Year in Review
Could it be? A Hamilton Inauguration?
[via Blind Gossip] While the media rushes to suggest that no self-respecting performer, marching band, or choir would dare throw their hat in the ring to light up the stage or parade at the Inauguration of Donald Trump, we're slowly learning that this is not true. It has been discovered that the producer of a popular theatrical… Continue reading Could it be? A Hamilton Inauguration?

The Centipede’s Dilemma
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKH6PAoUuD0 There's something happening; and it goes far beyond a year-long meme war (never forget). A new language has been created, new heroes have emerged, a complete mainstream media world-view has been uncovered and challenged at every turn, and the infighting among new cliques like the Alt-Right and Proud Boys has already begun. Thus begins the "Centipede's… Continue reading The Centipede’s Dilemma
Based Yeezus Comes Home to ‘Daddy’

This quick press-invited meet-and-greet comes on the heels of West being released from a mental health facility after confessing his admiration for the Donald and cancelling his tour. It was clear from the brief snapshot we have… Continue reading Based Yeezus Comes Home to ‘Daddy’
Your Russian Hacker Theory Sucks
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sbT3_9dJY4 While it's ultimately refreshing to have individuals who have a seemingly limitless history of being categorically wrong about every major issue involving race, gender, sociology, and economics suddenly get super-into international politics instead, one does not simply become magically red-pilled when one's political nemesis becomes God Emperor. In this latest and transparently bogus attempt to (at… Continue reading Your Russian Hacker Theory Sucks

Flag Burning: Your Right, Your Loss
This morning, Donald Trump, as he is apt to do, Tweeted out a little bit of inner monologue that has succeeded in rubbing people the wrong way; as he is also apt to do. It should be no surprise to anyone at this point that Trump is an atypical President-Elect. His Twitter is, and will remain for the… Continue reading Flag Burning: Your Right, Your Loss

Twitter Censorship and the World of Tomorrow
Twitter was created a decade ago, but didn't truly see the height of its rampant popularity until 2012. I know--not too long ago at all. It played a huge impact in Middle Eastern revolutions, and David Cameron threatened to ban it during the London Riots of 2011. So...understandably, there are a lot of little, let's… Continue reading Twitter Censorship and the World of Tomorrow

The Day America Elected a Frog
Let's get one thing straight.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Crazy Debate
There's no getting around the political fact that the Presidential Debates don't have much of an impact on the polls, or anyone's opinion of the candidates. I would argue further that who we choose to be President of the United States isn't a particularly significant decision either, but you guys seem to think it's an… Continue reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Crazy Debate

Oil Pipeline Protests a Crude Excuse for Tribalism
There are a few things we can probably all agree on: America needs to be energy independent, and America needs to decrease its reliance on non-renewable energy sources.

8 Non-Existent Dating Struggles and Why We’re All Pussies
There has always been pressure and sexual tension in the dating world and to think that Millenials are uniquely pressured is utter nonsense.

When I was a child I was very outgoing and always wanted everyone to be my friend, and usually, they did. I have always been creative and an arts and crafts kind of person. I was also a big tomboy. There usually wasn't a moment that went by when I wasn't fishing, hiking, camping or… Continue reading Life Lessons from Pornstar Lyla Storm
The SuperDPS Guide to Life
GUIDE TO CONSPIRACY THEORIES From the beginning of time, the mentally unstable have turned healthy skepticism and questioning authority into a madhouse of unpredictable, unprovable, and unimaginably nonsensical theories. The eternal unanswerable question is “Why?” Why would the government fake a moon landing, house alien life forms, cover up the paranormal, or orchestrate a terrorist… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Life

Every generation realizes a new and compelling explanation for the easily explicable. For our parents, it was the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a bright, young, ailing superstar president caught between two worlds. For us, the tragedy of September 11th and the struggle with the notion that perhaps the simplest explanation wasn't the most plausible.… Continue reading Lex Parsimoniae

Things Men Should Not do
No man shall watch porn with a group of other men. There's nothing creepier than sitting around a bunch of guys watching pornography. There's absolutely no reason to. No circumstance can ever justify this, it's just wrong. You don't exchange conversations or laughter with other party members, there's no commentary being offered or cheers, just… Continue reading Things Men Should Not do
Remembering William and Kate
With the combining forces of the internet, television, and countless paparazzi throwing fuel on the media fire that leads up to--and will surely include--the wedding of Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales and Kate Middleton, only time will tell before it all blows up in their faces. It's an inspirational story to many who… Continue reading Remembering William and Kate
Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?
Trump has been a media icon for decades. And while I have to give him props for graduating from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, and for having the wherewithal to effectively turn the company his father worked tirelessly to create into his own person piggy bank, I somehow doubt his honesty and credibility.… Continue reading Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?
So I'd like to start out by saying that I think terrorism is pretty cool. Just the idea of blowing something up that you don't like is pretty ballsy and I secretly admire it. As a matter of fact, I feel like the only reason that we hate terrorism so much is simple--we're on the… Continue reading Terrorism Rules

Life Lessons from Comedian Tim Vargulish
Tim Vargulish is a young comedian who I met on a random and directionless vacation to Boston. Let's paint a picture, shall we? My girlfriend and I were wandering around Harvard's campus feeling punch-drunk and slightly less intellectual than normal. We were searching for a place that seemed familiar and (thanks, Yelp!) discovered the Comedy… Continue reading Life Lessons from Comedian Tim Vargulish

But is it Art?
One of the best movies to come out this year was Exit Through the Gift Shop, a documentary by infamous street artist, Banksy, which combined two pleasures of mine: film-making and modern art. As a former art student and reluctant and bitter film maker, I feel I'm at least somewhat qualified to examine the art… Continue reading But is it Art?
New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011
We all want to believe in a better life, a sustainable way of living, and a semi-guided path to follow our dreams without the soul-crushing monotony of a mundane existence. But let's face it: for most of us, these goals are about as likely as Kevin Smith winning a Best Picture Oscar (or, Christ, even… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011
The Top Ten Worst Films of 2010
Like any year in the exciting and ever-changing world of film, 2010 has certainly had its miserable stinkers.
