Raise The Roof DC Style

By edward 10:57 am August 2, 2011 The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire, we don’t need no water let that mother f*** burn. There are many things that John Boehner (R-OH) is good at doing: crying, blaming liberals, crying while blaming liberals. One thing he probably can’t do is the dance ‘raise […]

Not Even Black Toddlers Are Safe From Media Slander

By jasiri x 2:21 pm August 1, 2011 Yes, the CBS station in Chicago chopped up an interview by a 4 year old to make it look like he was a thug in training, when he really wanted to be a police officer. I guess scary black men are an old hat and now we […]

By Summer M. 8:00 am August 1, 2011 Last week, Lauryn Hill announced the birth of her sixth child, a son, and then somehow found the strength to perform in LA just days after.

Racial Tension in Boystown, Attention Whores, and the Consequences of Crime

By Jonathan @jonathanlykes 8:09 am July 27, 2011 Crime scares me. I am not afraid of crime because of an anxiety that I will be robbed. Nor am I afraid because of some nervous undertone of violence. I am not afraid of it because of some idea of an unknown threat that causes harm. Crime […]

Club 27: Live Fast, Die Young.

By edward 8:56 am July 26, 2011 Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Brian Jones all tragically lost their lives at 27. Is it a coincidence? Or maybe 27 is just an extremely unlucky for number for famous musicians. Either way, these artists will all go down in history as talented beyond […]
