Did Humanity Peak in the Late ‘90s-Early 2000s?

Or is this just pedestalization of the past? I’ve followed ZubyMusic on Twitter for almost three years now, at least since around 2019. If you’re not familiar with the artist, “Zuby,” short for Nzube Olisaebuka Udezue, is a 36-year old English rapper educated at Oxford University, with a substantial and growing audience of worldwide fans. …

“I Only Date White Guys,” She Said To Me, a (Mostly) White Guy

Is it racist to not date outside your own race? And why being biracial/biethnic sucks. She had just broken up with her boyfriend, moved from a small town in Montana to North Dakota to live with a few friends of mine, and had small (almost baby) teeth. I don’t remember much else. She was cute, …

40 Isn’t “Over the Hill,” But Death Does Move in Next Door

And occasionally knocks on your door late at night. It’s strange how when you’re really young — early to late teens, even 20s — the idea of being a middle-aged adult seems ridiculously remote and impossible. Getting older is for other people. Your parents, for example, who were born ancient. Or your aunts and uncles. …

Three People Who Destroyed Their Lives in Less Than 60 Seconds

Going from champ to chump at Ludicrous Speed. Three stories. They say it takes a lifetime to build a reputation, but only seconds to destroy one. That’s especially true nowadays with the internet and social media. It’s almost impossible to just move to another town and start over in life. Bing knows all. And Google, …

Screw Racism, Sexism, Economic Inequality, Corona, Fentanyl, Gentrification, Inflation, Wars, and TikTok — THIS is What’s Destroying This Country

And no, it’s not even puberty blockers for kiddies. America. Land of the Lard Asses. Home of the Whopper and the Starbucks early morning milkshake. One nation, under obesity, with corndogs and Big Gulps for all. I’m talking about SUGAR, of course. America’s original white powder addiction, which makes crack cocaine look like Stevia. And …

The Problematic Morality of the New Hellraiser Film

The original 1987 Hellraiser was never an upper-tier horror film. It lacked the craft of Halloween, the dramatic intensity of The Exorcist, and the inventive charisma of The Nightmare on Elm Street. Still, it stood ahead of derivative dreck like Friday the 13th, Critters, and a host of ’80s flicks largely forgotten or relegated to the cultural graveyard. But where I …

How Much Some Popular Animations Cost to Produce

A look into the costs of cartooning. As a lover of random trivia, and as someone who fantasizes about producing an animation myself one day, I’ve lately become fascinated by the production costs of popular cartoons. Some of the numbers are pretty mind blowing, as are the production schedules. A typical episode of Rick and Morty, …
