The Unintentionally Offensive

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Featured, Music | 1 Comment

People get offended. Some easier than others. There are plenty of musical artists who fall into the pool of offensiveness with things they say or do. More often than not, rappers are guilty of this charge. Tupac, Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane, Kilo Ali, N.W.A, Public Enemy and the list can go on for a while. I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me to insert a fictional Kanye West comment about George Bush and the unfair …

Movie Review: The Lorax (And Its Politics)

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 4 Comments

The Lorax –  **1/2 out of 4 Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. – Dr. Seuss, The Lorax Some disclaimers right off the bat: I am a conservative, although usually tending towards being pragmatic, i.e. supporting those policies and laws that best implement conservative principles that construct society so that humanity is better off. “Better off” here meaning there is more freedom, more opportunity, and more justice for more …

Today we celebrate. Break out your Cristal, Don Perionne, and Franzia because our boy Tony Allen has been verified!!!! Far too long has this Twitter account laid in the shadows of Unverificationland. But alas, the light has revealed the truth. To date, this easily makes Tony’s top ten life accomplishments. I may be slightly hyperbolic in my assumption about this achievement, but aren’t all bloggers masters of the hyperbole? Who knew a blue circle with a check mark could generate …

Sports Cinema: A Natural Love for the Game

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Baseball, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies, Sports | 1 Comment

  Editor’s Update: On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox pitched the 21st Perfect Game in Major League Baseball history. Another moment in baseball history when perfection was achieved, making the analysis below of Billy Chapel’s accomplishment appropriate to one more man who has taken the mound in the quest for perfection. In a year when three of my favorite/most critically acclaimed films were tributes to the nostalgic era of 1920s cinema, film’s impact on …
