NYPD Protest Yields Good Results

NYPD Protest Yields Good Results
The NYPD are protesting the Mayor’s decision not to let them assault peaceful protestors by not doing what they are paid to do, and still getting paid because they don’t understand their jobs. I make a distinction between the phrase “Doing what they are paid to do” and “Doing their jobs” because their jobs don’t pay them ...

An Open Letter To Pat Lynch

An Open Letter To Pat Lynch
This is an open letter to Pat Lynch, the head of the Policemen’s Benevolent Association, which is a pretentious moniker that means the NYPD Union if you aren’t boned up on your Shakespeare or doublespeak. Dear Pat Lynch: Fuck you. I noticed you blamed the people protesting the deaths of people your organization murdered because ...

The New York Post (Fox) Is Making Shit Up

The New York Post was never a respectable news source but once Rupert Murdoch and News Corp with their Fox News titty baring anchor robots selling you Romney and Hardee’s took over it was lights out. The Post is now purely a celebrity trash rag that throws in Right Wing slanted headlines as filler for Page Six’s story about Leto’s Brazilian wax, because it turns out the ...

Why Did Iggy Azalea?

Why do I know who Iggy Azalea is?  It’s because I have to know who Some Chick is. Here’s how this works: When you’re an aspiring musician who can’t sing or play an instrument, the competition is pretty rough. Even if you’re talented, pretty, and musically proficient you aren’t going to get anywhere waiting around. ...

R.I.P. Scott Stapp

R.I.P. Scott Stapp
In life this life, few have given as much as Creed’s Scott Stapp to the cultural zeitgeist. What can I say about the man that hasn’t already been said? Zealot, dork, bad Eddie Vedder impressionist. A barometer by which to gauge our fellow humans. Anything besides befuddled amusement at the entire being of this man could ...

Steve Hofstetter Proves Comedy Doesn’t Pay

Steve Hofstetter Proves Comedy Doesn't Pay
If you haven’t seen the show Laughs on Fox you’re doing something right with your life. It features short clips of stand-up comedy, and an innovative segment showing screen grabs of tweets a staffer spelunked for.

My name is Matt Ralston. I was born and raised in the enclave of Fairbanks Alaska. I am a white guy. I have never struggled. My parents paid for my college education, and in times of need have even sent me checks. After college I moved to Los Angeles where I live now. These are ...

Why Aren’t The Networks Airing Obama’s Immigration Speech?

Why Aren't The Networks Airing Obama's Immigration Speech?
I found it strange none of the major TV networks are airing Obama’s speech announcing landmark immigration reform. A quick recap of what they will be showing in that time slot instead: ABC: Grey’s Anatomy followed by Scandal. This should be a great ep of Grey’s! I heard McDreamy is going to perform surgery on ...

Why Aren’t Comedians Funny Anymore? 3

Since when did comedians start taking themselves so seriously? The word ‘comedy’ is built into the profession. If you wanted to spend your time parsing words and getting self satisfyingly angry maybe you should have become a preacher or district attorney’s assistant or something. I think there is a dangerous precedent being set in America ...
