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 Deleterious Dilemma of Shane Gillis
On September 12, 2019 it was announced that Pennsylvania native Shane Gillis would be joining the 45th season of NBC's Saturday Night Live. The long-running sketch comedy series has seen far better days and is teetering around an all-time-low in ratings and popularity. All the while, Shane Gillis--a writer, comedian and actor in his early… Continue reading The Deleterious Dilemma of Shane Gillis
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
The ‘Nanette’ Delusion
(The following editorial is a matter of opinion. The author has no inside knowledge of the subject and all thoughts herein are purely speculative in nature.) Hannah Gadsby, the Australian performance artist masquerading as a comedienne, rose to international prominence through her interminably turgid Netflix special, "Nanette." The hubris gained from being suddenly world-famous has turned Gadsby… Continue reading The ‘Nanette’ Delusion

Cyber Monday Deals on Kathy Griffin’s Career
Today's the day--one of the most unproductive work days of the year for many people: Cyber Monday.

The Harry Potter Festival just got more cringe
Last weekend, thousands of Harry Potter fans descended on Chestnut Hill, PA for the 7th annual Harry Potter Festival on Germantown Avenue. For seven years, this flamboyantly jejune exhibition has granted both disappointed children and brazen developmentally halted adults the ability to frolic in unfettered glee in what would otherwise be an unmitigated playground of derision, a… Continue reading The Harry Potter Festival just got more cringe
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?
Prophets of Rage is a Cringe Masterpiece
You may have already forgotten (good for you) that the "rap rock supergroup" Prophets of Rage formed last year featuring most of Rage Against the Machine/AudioSlave, two members of Public Enemy, and B-Real of Cypress Hill.

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
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…

A study which, on its own, would be at least vaguely interesting, turned into a new accusation of "whitewashing" history through nothing other than...white stone.

LGBT Pride Gets Babadooked
I've always been against "pride." No singular pride in particular; but unearned pride should have no place in our country. The circumstances of your birth should never be a source of pride.

When the Frog Went to War
Last night, Americans were unnerved by the breaking news that Trump had ordered an artillery strike on the Syrian Air Force base from which planes carrying "Chemical Weapons" had supposedly launched an attack on the rebel-controlled town of Khan Sheikhoun. As I argued in a previous article, this "Chemical Attack" likely never occurred at all. But,… Continue reading When the Frog Went to War
I’d Like to Buy the World a Pepsi
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA5Yq1DLSmQ In the latest example of "dipshit social justice grandstanding" the bewildered and misguided Left have managed to get Pepsi (the sugar-water you get when the restaurant doesn't have Coke-brand sugar-water) to pull their latest long-form advertisement from the Interwebz. The ad, to anyone with a fucking brain in their skull, mimics the sentiment of the classic-but-cringe 1971 Coca… Continue reading I’d Like to Buy the World a Pepsi

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.

The Mobile Strike Models, and You
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X_j6ZzFOUg The objectively awful Mobile Strike game is for dads and intellectually disabled adults. So perhaps marketing to that crowd is a genius scheme. But despite the desperate outcry for more "realistic" women and the virtue-signalling adoration thrown at plus-sized models (read: women with slim faces but huge bodies) seems to border on condescending. Who on earth… Continue reading The Mobile Strike Models, and You

Phuck the Philly Soda Tax
On January 1st, Philadelphia became the first major city (the other being Berkeley) to enact a Soda Tax, a citywide tax increase on drinks with added sugar at a rate of 1.5 cents per ounce. For example, a gallon of sweetened tea that used to cost $1.77 now fucks your shit up for $3.69 because of an… Continue reading Phuck the Philly Soda Tax
Sinbad and the Mandela Effect

It’s Time to Say ‘Goodbye’ to Star Wars
You and Star Wars have had a good run. You saw the original movies when you were young and grew to love them more and more with age. One of the first shining moments in your cinematic-viewing youth was watching the towering and imposing figure of Darth Vader on the screen; dark, deadly, terrifying. You've had endless… Continue reading It’s Time to Say ‘Goodbye’ to Star Wars

Thus begins the "Centipede's… Continue reading The Centipede’s Dilemma

Yuri Bezmenov and the Forgotten 1984
It was in February of 1970, a presumably cold and grey day in the former Soviet Union, that Yuri disguised himself as a cartoon hippie, complete with fake beard and shaggy hair, and joined a pro-commie tour group that allowed him to flee his homeland to Athens, Greece. After lengthy security checks by United States… Continue reading Yuri Bezmenov and the Forgotten 1984
Pony Up, Daddy! The End of the American Father
It's been a rough road for the American dad.

Dads don't… Continue reading Pony Up, Daddy! The End of the American Father

Everyone who reviews this show, aside from insisting that it… Continue reading Obligatory Ranking of ‘Black Mirror’ Episodes from OK to OMG

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.

But the generation behind us will surpass us in that without problem.
The Truth About “Unfiltered Beauty”

The reason we… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Conspiracy Theories
Are we taking Zombies too far?
I'm a big fan of Zombie movies. In the swarm of zombie-related cinema, the social messages are often lost and the true intentions (of the better Zombie films) go unrealized.

Donald Trump: Genius or Chump?

Despite the reputation of this particular hospital, I chose to go there anyway due to its closeness and my imperative condition. By… Continue reading Roxborough Memorial: Or Hospitals In General?
Wall Ball Laws
Growing up poor on the mean streets of inner city Philadelphia, us kids had a lot of time to screw around outside. I never did a whole lot of video gaming (besides NHL 95 on the Sega Genesis!), and found the greatest amusement playing outside with a friend or two down the street. I've written… Continue reading Wall Ball Laws
Google Answers Your Most Popular Racist Questions
Stereotypes are typically based on misconceptions, ideologies, or common traits that were observed or created in an attempt to disparage or discredit an entire group of people. They can be positive or negative, but either way--their main purpose is to create an pseudo-understanding of a culture that we disconnect ourselves from and make no real… Continue reading Google Answers Your Most Popular Racist Questions
The Top Ten Bands Ruining Music
Let's start off with a bit of honesty: I have listened to some pretty shitty music in my time, and I'm sure many of the bands I enjoy, some of you would find objectionable--but that isn't the point. This is a list of bands that I feel that I can make a strong case against;… Continue reading The Top Ten Bands Ruining Music

What started as a Tennessee local news open forum for Marceaux to present his reasons why he should be elected Governor turned into a worldwide clusterfunny at his own expense.

I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Vampires Suck
Why? A simple question. Why? An adverb meant to express puzzlement and curiosity. Why in the holy bejesus fuck are Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg still working in the film business? How the shitting dolphin rotten bitch cunt they are able to get their "movies" financed, put into production and actually released in theatres for… Continue reading I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Vampires Suck
Arizona VS the Evil Brown People
We don't often give Arizona much consideration. We're aware of it--along with its deserts, its Phoenix, and...uh...John McCain? Outsiders have very limited insight into the goings-on in the Grand Canyon State; but recently, its popped into the media spotlight for--you guessed it!--blatant racism! Of course we all know that illegal immigrants are only here to… Continue reading Arizona VS the Evil Brown People
Ten 90’s Trends That Need to Make a Comeback
Fuck nostalgia. Everything that disappeared from popular culture probably disappeared for a good reason. Sorry, Gary--it was your time. We moved on, possibly through some theory of memetics; on to bigger and better things. But at the same time, it seems like many things are heading backwards. In a future that we were promised virtual… Continue reading Ten 90’s Trends That Need to Make a Comeback
Battlefield: South Park
Well, it's official, kids. The terrorists have won. They won in Denmark, they won in England, and now they've won in America. It's a shame, really. So many of our country's young men and women have sacrificed their lives to defend our "freedom." They died for nothing. Perhaps I sound rather nonchalant about this whole… Continue reading Battlefield: South Park
A Conversation About 9/11
They say arguing on the internet is like winning the Special Olympics--even if you win, you're still retarded. It's typically a saying used by people who don't use the internet to its full potential and often live in a microcosm of their own blatant self-satisfaction. I enjoy learning and educating myself. If I don't know… Continue reading A Conversation About 9/11
Real-Life Super Villain Terrorizes Seattle
Rarely do you hear a news story that includes the words "Space Cowboy" and "Vampire." The real world just isn't that exciting. But when you discover this kind of batshit insane, who needs comic book villains? Imagine the confusion and fear that gripped the fine people over at the Union Gospel Mission in downtown Seattle when… Continue reading Real-Life Super Villain Terrorizes Seattle
God Exists and He’s American
At long last, this country has won a battle in its war for God. We've been heading down the path of evil for so long, it's about time we got back on Jesus's good side (for those of you who don't know, Jesus and God are the same person, except when they're having a conversation).… Continue reading God Exists and He’s American
Ron Paul: Nazi Creationist?
When I first learned of the existence of Ron Paul, I was legitimately excited--and rightly so! Along comes a political figure into the mainstream who reflects a decent Libertarian ideology of Constitutionalism and Freedom...but like graduating from college, my unparalleled optimism was soon crushed into a fine paste. The first element that killed my boner… Continue reading Ron Paul: Nazi Creationist?
Terrorism in Texas
As spurious and perhaps fatuous as it may be, a new addendum to the story of the plane attack on a Dallas Tax Office has been released to the media. Maybe it's only a fringe media story--and I claim no knowledge to its validity, but I feel apt to comment on it regardless. As you… Continue reading Terrorism in Texas
Toyota – Moving TOO Forward.
Toyota has been recalling a lot of their cars (roughly 8.5 million vehicles recalled in the US) with problems due to involuntary acceleration, power steering, and it's brakes on it's new hybrid models like the Prius. 34 deaths so far have been contributed to these problems a lot having to do with the in-car computers.… Continue reading Toyota – Moving TOO Forward.
The SuperDPS Guide to the Right
There's a political schism in this country that has been exported throughout the Western World through religion and an imaginary system of values which should never be part of global or national policy to begin with. It seems only right that someone attempt to explain the points of view commonly associated with the Republican Party… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to the Right
We are the world, but we’re not your children.
Well they've done it folks. They rebuilt it, They had the technology, crappier than it was before. We Are the World debuted back in March of 1985. The song was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and featured a variety of many diverse and popular vocalists and musicians. A song written by the very… Continue reading We are the world, but we’re not your children.
A Heavy Rain’s Gonna Come
Since a very young age, I've looked to the medium of electronic arts/digital media for hope, inspiration, and most of all--fun. Virtually all video games, if you don't count Minesweeper, used to unwaveringly be copious amounts of fun. The drawback, of course, was that they were all practically the same. Either you were playing Super… Continue reading A Heavy Rain’s Gonna Come
Dear John (an article about John Mayer, racism, and moderation)
In case you haven't heard, Singer / songwriter John Mayer did an interview with Playboy and certain remarks he made within the interview, sparked some controversy. And just like any good celeb who has a case of verbal dysentery, the press throws the chum into the waters and it becomes a feeding frenzy for the… Continue reading Dear John (an article about John Mayer, racism, and moderation)
The SuperDPS Guide to Prohibition
Hopefully, we've all had a decent-enough education to know that at one point in American History, the consumption and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited by the United States government. Fortunately, this occurred at a time in History when our government could learn from their mistakes and push "we fucked up" initiatives after stupid decisions… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Prohibition
The SuperDPS Guide to Religion
As we are all no doubt aware, society--more specifically, modern western progressive society--has become more concerned with freedom from religion than freedom of religion. Every religious group believes in essentially the same bullshit, but where they differ from the sects of their neighbors, they define themselves as wholly separate entities. Throughout history, the frightened and… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Religion
From Brit to Black: Death at a Funeral
Way back in 2007, I saw a Frank Oz film called Death at a Funeral, so imagine my surprise when I discovered a trailer for a new Neil LaBute film called Death at a Funeral. Should the “too soon” rule usually applied to tragic events also be applicable for remakes? The original Death at a… Continue reading From Brit to Black: Death at a Funeral
