What is good art? A silly question asked by silly people throughout history. I scoff at them!
Overwatch, they say, is about teamwork. They’re correct, but what they don’t tell you (because it should be obvious to anyone with a child’s understanding of how video games work) is that you shoot at your opponents, not your teammates. It would appear that I merely have an overgrown baby’s understanding of video…
Let’s talk about fake news. Are you excited? I am! (Actually I’m not. That claim was fake news.)
To all the Wall Street titans, billionaires, and run-of-the-mill rich people who are celebrating the ascendance of Donald Trump to the White House: please keep this one piece of context in mind.
Do you work at Hardee’s or Carl’s Jr.? We want to hear from you.
Is the world getting better? Are we making progress?
If someone came to your house and camped in your front yard and screamed all day and night about how bad you are, you would want to correct the record somehow. Right?
Betsy DeVos, a galactically rich and galactically evil anti-public school, anti-gay rights donor appointed by Donald Trump to be our country’s next Education Secretary, is going through confirmation hearings tonight (sports angle: her shitty father owns the Orlando Magic). She was asked about guns in schools. She said…
After decades of growing inequality, our presidential election was a violent revolt against The Elites. So who the hell is actually trying to remedy that inequality frustrating our nation? The elites!
If there’s one piece of the Roman Empire that has managed to weave its way into popular culture, it’s the army. Every decade or so, we get a new movie featuring the heroics of a Russell Crowe (Gladiator), Clive Owen (King Arthur), or Michael Fassbender (Centurion, which is an awesome action flick), and images of…
The Women’s March on Washington, to be held the day after Trump’s inauguration, will be the largest and loudest national protest. I’ll be there, joining a mass of humanity united in opposition to everything Donald Trump stands for. New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait, who never met a women’s issue he couldn’t make…
The last bear I shared with you was a rambunctious panda goofin’ around with a snowman. Today I am here to show you a delightful polar bear rolling around in some big fluffy piles of snow.
It’s Friday afternoon. That’s the big window in the living room of the forest cabin that my family and I moved into a little over a week ago. It’s nice. I sit in that chair on the right side and do blogs. I’m sitting in that chair right now!
This week, Mark Zuckerberg’s $45 billion philanthropic foundation announced it is bringing on David Plouffe and Ken Mehlman, two of America’s most prominent political operatives. It is worth reflecting on the vast, vast power being wielded by the unaccountable foundations of the rich. Let’s do it!
If you give a Trump a hooker
A special request to the labor unions of America: If it’s not too much trouble, could one of you unionize Amazon, fast?
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been on the air since 2005, and somehow, a show about five terrible idiots who hatch insane schemes and treat each other with unabashed disdain is probably going to end up as the longest running live-action comedy series in TV history. The show is just getting into its 12th season…
It’s been fun, but it’s about time for Republicans to admit that the great Donald Trump experiment isn’t going to work out—for them.
