Speaking to a colleague this morning who asked if I was tired of writing about racial ‘strife.’ The answer was—no—I am tired of living it. In less than two weeks a white Ohio police chief thought it was a joke to leave a KKK reference on the desk of one...

The usual Cruz hypocrisy, the pot calling the kettle violent. Because the final term of Ted Cruz will feature more nonsense serving corporate energy interests among other contradictions. He’s flailing about today with the latest nominees for DoJ, among other fake outrage. It’s an old tactic, because Cruz loves stirring...

I’ve watched a lot of mob movies, so I know it’s a really bad sign when the boss refuses to see you. (Question: If a Trump capo leaves a gross giant horse head in Gaetz’s bed, how long will his fiancée canoodle with it before she realizes it’s not Matt?) In...

Fox News and Greg Gutfeld apparently believes he’s funny enough to go up against late night comedy programming. Because of the previous guy, the world might be safe for RW late night humor when ‘Pretentious Virtue Signaling’ can be an intelligible punch line. As if Dennis Miller on RT makes us feel better...

Without the strange speculation about how Trump is in decline, it is reasonable to think that Trump is consistently inconsistent in not being able to assemble a successful policy or even a political apparatus to execute policy. For example his insistence on claiming credit for COVID vaccine development also comes with...

Everybody’s favorite cultural caricatures came out from beneath their rocks because they have nothing to contribute while we wait for the final chapter in the Trump era. The same idiots who hate the French and ignorantly rebranded French(sic) Fries “Freedom Fries” now want to mock the contextualizing of cultural products...

Every year, there’s an anti-Hollywood screed from the right that bemoans the plethora of late-night comics, movies, and television series that have a “liberal” slant. Usually, this just means having diverse casts, positive anti-hate messages, or a low tolerance for actors who are openly bigoted. This year is no different....

CHAZ/CHOP is over but not gone, even if it lasted not as long as the Paris Commune. Ultimately it remains about power and autonomy. Basta ya.

Like an 8-year-old boy whose parents allowed him to watch Dirty Harry movies before he was ready to fully process them, Donald Trump thinks quashing protests — peaceful or otherwise —with military-style force is the best way to keep the peace.

I watched the movies Kill Bill 1&2 for the umpteenth time last night. I endured the blood and guts, the pulpy glamorizing of violence, and the catchy soundtrack, most of which I have committed to memory. Sorting it out is sometimes a tough task, with Quentin Tarantino’s use of overlapping...

Who goes to boring zombie apocalypse movies, or even the Zombieland sequel?
