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…

How far will Lady Gaga go on Superbowl Sunday?
After all of the hope and praying for an objectively superior Superbowl LI performance by Adele (or Taylor Swift, or whoever), it was announced back in September 2016 that Lady Gaga would be taking the field for the Halftime Show; or, more accurately, the taking the fucking roof. Despite the totally legitimate fears from her staff, Gaga remains confident that… Continue reading How far will Lady Gaga go on Superbowl Sunday?
Consumed By Classic Training Videos
There are times when the internet consumes your existence and there is no turning back. It happened to me, and I am slowly breaking free from my own prison of fast food/retail training videos from the 80s/90s. No celebrities made me a video saying I will survive, eh, what are you going to do? Nothing,… Continue reading Consumed By Classic Training Videos

Fernandez
Watson Presents the 25 Best/Worst Movies of 2013
Am I too late to be posting this? Most people post their “best of the year” lists in late December, early January, right? And this is March. Bugger. Oh well, better late than never. And hey, the Oscars were on last night, so I can just seamlessly tie it into that. Yeah, that’ll work. So,… Continue reading Watson Presents the 25 Best/Worst Movies of 2013
Best and Worst Music Videos of 2011
Hey, boys and girls! I've been reviewing music all year--songs and artists that I've really enjoyed, and those I found horrifying. I try not to be genre-specific, but it does become a strain on my ability to effectively deliver my honest opinion. Having said that, I can (and regularly do) appreciate lots of different styles… Continue reading Best and Worst Music Videos of 2011
What We’re Listening To (12/5/11)
The Black Keys--El Camino In this Danger Mouse-produced follow-up to "Brothers," The Black Keys seems to be doing something a little different, and that's great. A few people may see this as a complete transgression from their previous work, but I totally dig it. The Black Keys have an eclectic sound which enables them to… Continue reading What We’re Listening To (12/5/11)
Center City Comedy’s 3rd Anniversary Show

What We’re Listening to (May 2011)
Architecture in Helsinki--Moment Bends Fans of this Australian ensemble have been waiting for this album for what feels like an eternity. Then when it finally dropped, it was so under the radar that it took a whole month for me to check it out. Architecture evolves so quickly it would make a Creationist's head spin.… Continue reading What We’re Listening to (May 2011)
What we’re listening to! April 2011
Wake up, Thunderbabe--The Battle Royale I can't imagine any indie pop junkie not being a fan of The Battle Royale, but I'm sure there must be some out there. Their sound combines a White Stripes simplicity with some modern tech beats and childlike wonder. Though I can't determine whether the gals and guys in this… Continue reading What we’re listening to! April 2011
What We’re Listening to…(February 2011)
It's been an exciting week for indie music. I know! Fucking weird, right? Has there ever been an exciting week in indie music? Unless you count that time your band ran into the guy who does keyboards and loops for TV on the Radio at some shitty venue that he also happened to be playing,… Continue reading What We’re Listening to…(February 2011)
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
What We’re Watching (if you care)
Television It's been a hell-of-a-year for amazing television, and epic finales. You may have missed some of the highlights, but I'll do my best to fill you in. Plus, you can probably find all of these shows for free on the internet anyway...shh... Treme--Set in the New Orleans neighborhood of Treme, this show gives us… Continue reading What We’re Watching (if you care)
Soundtrack to the Week (If you care)
Recovery—Eminem: “Fuck my last CD; that shit’s in the trash.” Eminem drops some knowledge in his latest release, reminding us that we fell in love with him for his personality and passion.

Let’s Talk About ‘Shutter Island’
As long as everyone is talking about the latest Martin Scorsese thriller, Shutter Island, let's take a moment to examine it in detail. Martin Scorsese is one of my favorite directors, and if he's not one of yours, then you probably don't like movies--or, at least, you don't like good movies. Fact. By all definitions… Continue reading Let’s Talk About ‘Shutter Island’
Facebook, we've been together for about 4 years now. It's been magical. We've shared stories, pictures, moments. You were never afraid to ask the question, "What's on your mind?". Well now I feel like it's time to share with you. Facebook, recently you've been doing everything in your power to irritate me. I know I'm… Continue reading Dear Facebook…
Alana Evans asks: So You Wanna Be a Pornstar?
We all have dreams. Every person has something they aspire to be--or become--at points in their lives. When I was young, I wanted to be an actress. Other children wanted to be doctors, firemen, police officers, and teachers. At some point, we either follow the path carved for that desire or we change directions. But… Continue reading Alana Evans asks: So You Wanna Be a Pornstar?
The SuperDPS Guide to Karaoke
Allow me to begin with a bit of unconventional news. It was a typical Friday night at a Karaoke Bar in Stamford, Connecticut when shit went south. When a 25-year old girl started singing a Juanes song, 6 bitches got hostile. First, the shouting and booing escalated...which is understandable. Then, these 6 women viciously attacked the… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Karaoke
Commercials Will Make You Crazy!
Commercials that don't make a god damn lick of sense! The whole purpose of a commercial is to sell a product. These particular commercials (by my standards anyway) fail to do so. Visa: This particular commercial features a father taking his daughter to the aquarium on a Tuesday afternoon. Which is why they play The… Continue reading Commercials Will Make You Crazy!
Why You’re Wrong About District 9
It's no secret that the quality of film as a whole has taken a couple dozen blows to the skull. But who wields the bat/board-with-a-nail-in-it? Is it the Directors who have given up on their creative conscience? Is it the Producers who are so mired in Teen Romances and Straight-To-DVDs that they lose all vision… Continue reading Why You’re Wrong About District 9
The Top 5 TV Alcoholics
Remember the days when the evil vices that television felt comfortable showing were very different. It used to be that sex and drugs were unheard of on TV shows unless the title of the show began with the words "The Dangers of..." Now that producers and executives have figured out that fucking, fighting, and freebasing… Continue reading The Top 5 TV Alcoholics
Movies That Shouldn’t Be Coming Out
In retrospect, there are hundreds, if not thousands of divisive and objectively terrible movies that should have never been made...But, until we develop some kind of time machine (and we I will), we have to settle for the morbid reality that most of us won't live long enough to travel back through history and tell… Continue reading Movies That Shouldn’t Be Coming Out
The 5 People You Meet at House Parties
The house party is a fascinating beast. I speak not of a social gathering amongst friends; a situation in which you are familiar with at least 75% of the individuals in attendance. The unholy creature which I am attempting to illustrate reeks more of something out of lore--a somewhat biblical behemoth that devours the self… Continue reading The 5 People You Meet at House Parties
Three Movies You Just Might Have to See
1. The Informant! Remember Matt Damon? That guy from the Borne movies whose latest opus was a song about fucking Sarah Silverman? Yeah! That one! He's back, and he's got a funny moustache now. In this comedy, Matt Damon plays a clueless corporate employee who is wrangled by the FBI to go undercover and reap… Continue reading Three Movies You Just Might Have to See
Trailers of the Week (Summer Edition!)
It's officially the first week of Summer, so I figured I'd bring back some quick Trailer reviews for all of you movie-lovers who are craving the sweet nectars of the potentially disappointing films that are made to look watchable by enticing advertisements. I know that these aren't movies that are being released in the next… Continue reading Trailers of the Week (Summer Edition!)
Chris Hansen VS Predator: Requiem
It's a fairly safe bet that if you've ever seen or heard of television, you've come across To Catch a Predator at some point. Unfortunately, I've willingly subjected myself to a Sunday Marathon and volunteered for the spectator sport of Predator-Nabbing. After viewing an unarguably unhealthy amount of Dateline's hilariously repetitive "investigative journalism," I've noticed… Continue reading Chris Hansen VS Predator: Requiem
The Top 5 Most Insane Nickelodeon Game Shows
In the midst of the current economic recession, Network television seems to be hurting to the point that legitimate (possibly decent) programming is being scrapped because they're too expensive to produce. Stations are turning to the alternative, which unfortunately results in low-budget Reality Shows, Mindless Entertainment, and Game Shows. While no one is impressed by… Continue reading The Top 5 Most Insane Nickelodeon Game Shows
The Five Best/Most Ridiculous Candies
Easter has come and gone and some of us barely even noticed. It's not difficult to imagine the awe and unification that erupts when millions of people commune to celebrate the resurrection of their Ghost Dad, but for the rest of us former Christians, Easter (like Christmas) is now more about family dinner, pastel decorations,… Continue reading The Five Best/Most Ridiculous Candies
Stuff Dave Likes (and My Big Fat Greek Engineering School Tragedy)
A blog is a blog, so I am free to talk about whatever I'd like, right? So today I'm going to let you into the world of Dave, just a little bit and talk about...well...stuff I like! If you enjoy these things, well...good for you, that brings you up one more peg in Dave's Book… Continue reading Stuff Dave Likes (and My Big Fat Greek Engineering School Tragedy)
College Stereotypes: Drexel University Edition
You know the saying, "you know the type" when it comes to THAT GUY or THAT GIRL you saw...well I'm here today to talk about THAT TYPE.

The Six Recession-Proof Ways to Get Cities Out of Debt
An overwhelming amount of us live in super-sized, congested, polluted cities. I happen to live in Philadelphia, and in addition to the hazards of our everyday lives, we are dealing with a staggering and crippling economic "depression." Because of this, we have cutbacks running wild, elevated panic in the marketplace, and nothing on which to… Continue reading The Six Recession-Proof Ways to Get Cities Out of Debt
Once in awhile, I'll happen upon something that I will--for a short time--consider the "Greatest Thing Ever." While this practice is often more spasmodic and arguably useless than Keith Olbermann's lists of Best and Worst Persons in the World, it often serves to satiate my otherwise excruciating somnambulism during the average work-day. Just about every… Continue reading Gryffindor FTW!!
50 Things on the Internet You DON’T Need to See!
Recently (and by which I mean Monday), I came across a website that listed 99 Memes that you NEED to see on the internet. In this article I will pluck 50(that's right) from things on this list and describle them The first 30 will be the WORST, hopefully saving you the trouble of wasting as much of… Continue reading 50 Things on the Internet You DON’T Need to See!
On the Precipice of Social Disrepair: Why We Watch Television
If religion is the opiate of the masses, then Television has got to be the crack cocaine. The archaic notion that somehow we're all inspired to mimic what we see on TV becomes more and more unfounded when the programs we tend to watch become increasingly like a Vaudevillian Freak Show. The near-extinction of Reality… Continue reading On the Precipice of Social Disrepair: Why We Watch Television
Why John Mayer is the Most Awesome Person Ever…
...but Pretty Much Sucks as a Musician. John Mayer is the coolest person ever. Too bad his music is terrible. I lay out my case below. Why he is Awesome: 1. John Mayer is 6'3. Most people don't know he's this tall, therefore when people do meet him, they often say, "Wow, you're tall!" to… Continue reading Why John Mayer is the Most Awesome Person Ever…
The Top 5 Things People Need to Stop Pretending are True
We would all love to feel intelligent. It's natural to long for that orgasmic brain baby that makes sweet love to our consciousness on a daily basis. But when we aren't having premarital underage sex with our own sense of luscious self-awareness, while wrapped around an ever-buzzing Tesla Coil deep within the chasms our brain cases,… Continue reading The Top 5 Things People Need to Stop Pretending are True
List-o-Ramma! Why Philadelphia is one of the Great Cities of the World
This afternoon, I'd like to take a little while and talk about why Philadelphia, the great city where I was born, raised, and continue to live, is the greatest city in the world. Scoff, laugh and shrug, but stay with me on this one... 1) Crime - In 2007, Philadelphia had a murder rate of… Continue reading List-o-Ramma! Why Philadelphia is one of the Great Cities of the World
Sex Blogger Dark Gracie’s 2009 “More” List
First off, I have never done a New Year's Resolution for the mere fact that they are never fun and always so much "work." Screw that! So, here are MY New Year's Resolutions: 1. Write More. As many of my readers have noticed, I have slacked off quite a bit. It's not like I don't have sex anymore; I lack… Continue reading Sex Blogger Dark Gracie’s 2009 “More” List
CCGs and Me
It has come to my attention with my recent purchase of the still-surviving Card Game, Munchkin, that I have an abundance of Customizable Card Games that I fear I will never be able to play again. The best thing about CCGs is the concept of being able to play "god." The games are practically never quite… Continue reading CCGs and Me

The 5 Most Overrated Pieces in Recent Pop Culture
Recently, Penn Jillette has been creating short videos of his shrill bitchings to YouTube. One such video was of his ideas of what is underrated and what is overrated in current pop culture. Always the optimist, Jillette gave society a chance by saying the good things that he thinks need more credit. So, with that… Continue reading The 5 Most Overrated Pieces in Recent Pop Culture
