The Year’s Best Movies, Part 1

Now is the winter of our discontent made slightly less awful by the fact that there are still some great movies in the theaters. If you were looking for a strong movie in 2011, chances are good you were looking in the wrong place. Check the list of major box office hits and you’ll see…

Go see “Young Adult”

Mrs. Biscuette and I went down to Midtown Arts last night and saw Young Adult. I’m not ashamed to admit, I really love Diablo Cody. Juno was a movie I expected to hate (and I’m still not big on Ellen Paige), but really loved. Cody’s writing is smart, snappy, poignant, and funny. Young Adult is…

Artist to Watch in 2012: Jhameel

One of the artists I’m most excited to see expand and develop this year is Jhameel. He first caught my attention when I stumbled upon a video of him covering T-Pain’s “Buy You a Drank.” Before you smirk, let me explain.

Good lord. Even more sad, some members of the “Hoe Haters” decided that whatever the “Hoe Haters” stand for was worthy of killing…

A Number of Extremely Serious Policy Questions About the Size of Mitt Romney’s Dong

Why is this man smiling?

The funniest thing about these videos is the level of erudition and intellectual seriousness the questioners display before asking about the size of the lantern-jawed, beautifully coiffed Mormon politico’s endowment. And no, I do not mean a scholarship set up in his name. By way of our friends at Mediaite, obviously.

In need of a Nixon shock

I received a phone call on my ipiece today from Chicago, Illinois.  I normally don’t answer calls if I don’t recognize a name on my caller ID, but I have watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off enough times in my life to delude myself into believing that it might be Abe Froman, the sausage king of…
