    No Website for Old Men

    Where does a man my age go with his pop culture thoughts and observational musings?

    I've been posting here for over 5 years and I still feel like the guy sitting at the bar watching the ballgame while the kids gyrate to 'W.A.P.'. I don't quite fit, but I'm not sure someone in their 40's fits anywhere on the world wide web. I'm just a dad chaperoning a bunch of self-loathing brats to a Soccer…

    Sincerely Louis C.K.


    Listen, I’m not going to sit here and pretend that being a Louis C.K. fan isn’t complicated.

    Sure, he’s no Harvey Weinstein but leveraging your comedic stature so you can fondle yourself in front of impressionable young comedians is pretty despicable. I do struggle with that, and admit he could’ve helped himself by being a bit more apologetic early on. But I also believe in second chances. I know I’ve had my share.

    You know who else got a second…

    Man, this was desperate.

    Maybe even a little sad.

    The same old tropes and talking points spoon fed to braying donkeys who love hearing themselves talk. Cringeworthy bits and obnoxious dialogue that people dismiss because it lines up with their beliefs and sensibilities. Cutting corners, and in some cases flat out making shit up, so the writers can manufacture sympathy for their one-dimensional characters. Cheesy wigs, bad accents, cartoonish performances, and a runtime that never seems to end. A media…

    *We'll be back with more VH1's Behind The Music right after these messages...

    They were the bad boys of the underground horror scene. Up all night, sleep all day -

    Bouncing from gig to gig, couch to couch, graveyard to graveyard. Just hoping for that one big break -

  • Fargo



    Let's talk about the films we truly love.

    Our absolute favorites.

    The movies we use as a measuring stick when comparing other films and opinions. They don't have to be considered "classics" or win Academy Awards. They just have to remind us of why we love cinema in the first place.

    Joel and Ethan Coen's FARGO is that movie for me.

    One big reason is the personal connection to the setting. Lifelong Minnesotan here, dontchaknow! And every detail in FARGO

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now


    Being an asshole isn’t easy.

    But one of the positives is knowing I witnessed Apocalypse Now on the big screen in an empty theater while 30 people waited to get in to Hobbs and Shaw two weeks after it’s release. Further proof that the vast majority of the modern movie going public are easily influenced poseurs or mindless rubes whose opinions should be judged harshly. And if you blindly take offense to that statement I imagine you’d fit comfortably in…
