The Best Video Game Ending Ever

12 Aug , 2015  

If you were born after the year 2000, you’re spoiled as shit when it comes to video games. Video games used to be this weird magic trick where players suspended their disbelief for a few hours (or years) and accepted that miserable 16 bit graphics and impossible boob physics were real life. We watched terribly […]

Look At All These Fucking Mayflies.

24 Jul , 2015  

Sabula, Iowa is a shitty town in the eastern Iowa with a population of 568 people and a billion fucking mayflies. Mayflies, which are also known as Shadflies, Rhithrogena germanica, and Hedonistic Scourge of the Earth are a species of insect that mature, mate, and die in a period of 24 hours. I can only imagine how many […]

What the F in “Weezy F.” Stands for (as explained by a Venn Diagram)

11 Mar , 2013  

Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., best known as Lil Wayne, has given himself more nicknames than ancient Roman royalty. Rap Genius documents more than 50 of these names – as classic as Weezy F. and as obscure albeit respectable as Mr. I-Can’t-Make-An-Appointment.

4 Cover Songs that Left the Excellent Originals in Smoking Ruins

25 Feb , 2013  

4 Cover Songs that Left the Excellent Originals in Smoking Ruins The importance of cover songs is, in my opinion, highly underrated.

Contextualizing The Folk Revival

15 Feb , 2013  

  In the midst of ethereal, electronic DJ’s, monumental, mash-up moguls, synth-heavy minimalists, whomping dub-steppers, and general mechanical music mania, lies the blaring, catchy, and ubiquitous folk revival. While many people seem to write off this genre as a hipster-induced fad or quick influx of stuck-in-your-head ephemeral ballads, there are several major factors that make […]

  App Review: iMadeFace Every once in a while, the internet creates something that changes society for the better- something that leaves such a positive impact that its benefits ripple throughout the world, injecting benevolence into the lives of even the most destitute.

The Harlem Shake

12 Feb , 2013  

  About a week ago a meme festered up through the scaly cracks of the internet. Our sources (reading the descriptions of videos on youtube) say that Filthy Frank first started the trend, but who knows. The Internet is a weird place and I want my piece of it. That being said, on behalf of […]

29 Jan , 2013  

I was driving to buy some rock salt from the gas station the other day (Michigan winters, am I right?) when “I’m Different”, by the revered and dignified music artist 2Chainz ,came on the radio. You’ve probably heard it- he says “I’m different” about 75 times and then talks about having sex and doing drugs […]
