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

White people don’t get to have a history
https://www.facebook.com/VICE/videos/836106116549340/?hc_ref=ARTlbGWQV2vo2heUj6ZpUS25PnWcO_-XlqzUI6EOXcdbvDhxHfew1IjHQ1FzzAUwVCE In the latest "revisionist history" news, Vice has interviewed a couple of art historians about the possibility of ancient Roman statues having been painted back in the day. 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. Yes, that's… Continue reading White people don’t get to have a history

The Red Herring and the Rise of Hate
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml0WvjU05nI We've all heard about the massive outbreak of hate crimes after, and surrounding, the election of Donald Trump. We've heard about them...but have we seen them? Supposedly these white anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-black homophobic, Islamophobic, racist bigots are floating to the surface. But where are they? Have we seen examples flooding the mainstream media...the social media?… Continue reading The Red Herring and the Rise of Hate
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
Yes, Hamilton. There IS an Electoral College
Recently, a new organization has cropped up all over the media landscape and they're getting quite a bit of attention. The group is called Hamilton Electors and they are made up (as far as I can tell) of a tiny handful of members of the Electoral College who are both born without genitalia and devoted to… Continue reading Yes, Hamilton. There IS an Electoral College
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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-SI-j-DyEw Review Brah is at it again, and when he's not reporting on Papa John's Personal Pan Pizza (which now I have to try), he's visiting the largest McDonald's on Earth...in Florida, of course. I'm hoping he was able to survive Hurricane Matthew, if he's still down there. I would hate to lose such a valuable YouTuber. And speaking… Continue reading Friday Goob News! 10/7
The Death of Kim Kardashian
Before you jump to conclusions and we have another death hoax of Kel Mitchell proportions on our hands; no, Kim Kardashian is very much alive.

Obama VS Bush: Let the Conspiracy Begin
I fucking hate it when assholes say, "9/11 was an inside job." It takes a special brand of cunt to blindly blame the George Bush for the deaths of thousands of people. There are thousands of deaths that you can blame on Bush...so why grasp at straws? The point is that whether or not 9/11… Continue reading Obama VS Bush: Let the Conspiracy Begin
It Begins Again: The Death of Brittany Murphy
The bullshit about celebrity deaths coming in triples still serves to make me uneasy about the week ahead. Who's next? Bob Dylan? William Shatner? For some reason, the death of actress Brittany Murphy has really got me in a shitty mood. She was a celebrity that happened to be somewhere on my list of hottest… Continue reading It Begins Again: The Death of Brittany Murphy
Beat Kids: The Day of the Balloon Boy
When one makes an effort to travel for vacation, casually keeping up with the news often becomes a secondary notion. I make it my business to try to keep up with current trends and events, but with the cesspool of non-news, celebrity horseshit, and George Takei on the Newlywed Game, I can't reasonably be expected… Continue reading Beat Kids: The Day of the Balloon Boy
I’m excited about Ghostbusters III…am I stupid?
The short answer is "no." None of us who get a little pants-tingle over the notion of a third installment in the Ghostbusters franchise are particularly in the wrong. If you've played the Ghostbusters Video Game, you should have had some of that nostalgia satiated, but the need for something more often creeps unfulfilled through… Continue reading I’m excited about Ghostbusters III…am I stupid?

An Open Letter to the Gay Community
Dear Sirs, Madams, and those elusive Sir/Madams, While I must admit that a majority of my knowledge about Gay Issues comes from movies (no, not those kind of movies) and various friends, associates, and those I've met throughout my scholastic and professional career. I'm not gay, nor have I ever had a homosexual experience...not that… Continue reading An Open Letter to the Gay Community
What the Fuck Happened?: As Seen on TV
Was there a specific moment that slipped by the collective conscious of the entire world, or have we all just gone batshit insane? Either way, we've all gone soft on the As Seen on TV product marketing schemes perpetrated by the likes of Billy Mays and Vince Shlomi (a.k.a. The Sham-Wow guy). I recall a… Continue reading What the Fuck Happened?: As Seen on TV
Top Ten Types of Paper
A lot of people like to post top ten lists. And generally, these lists are interesting to read, if only for the controversy they're sure to create. Top 10 dictators of Latin America? We could go all afternoon, debating between the likes of Peron, Batista, Castro, Duvalier, and what not. Top Ten Types of STDs?… Continue reading Top Ten Types of Paper
An Open Letter to a Celebrity-Obsessed America
My Dear Celebrity-Obsessed Americans-- Though the whole world (especially the Western One) is crippled by their unhealthy appetite for tabloids and gossip entertainment that belittle and viciously attack the personal lives of those who they all wish that they could be, I can only speak on behalf of like-minded people within my own country (plus,… Continue reading An Open Letter to a Celebrity-Obsessed America
Does Anybody Care About Movies?
A while back, I started a weekly article series called "Trailers of the Week." Not a very captivating title, but it did the job. Needless to say, I've been slacking. All my effort has gone into the Super Dudes Power Squad web-show (first motherfucking episode done, btw) and I've missed out on (what Johnny On… Continue reading Does Anybody Care About Movies?
In a recent article, I mentioned the ridiculous and intellectually offensive item in the news regarding a certain political cartoon. I know you're all sick of seeing it, but here it is: I don't know why, but I am extremely frightened by the outrage that this cartoon has caused. Actually, that's a lie. I know… Continue reading Chimpanzee That!
