The Worst Song in Human History: Shopping from A to Z

Keith Bergman, contributor In 1982, choreographer-turned-singer Toni Basil was riding high on the success of “Mickey,” a gigantic worldwide pop hit and a genuinely great piece of bubblegum songwriting. Eager to strike while the iron was hot, her label released another single from her “Word of Mouth” album. Though it sported a cover of the David Essex hit “Rock On” …

This SHITs for Reels – The Weed Edition

Stand-up comedian Doug Benson gets Super High Me (2007) in this Big Mac-inspired potumentary. Cameras follow as he quits nugs for 30 days, medically tests his physical, psychological and mental abilities and performs comedy.

Jacuzzi Boys – Ping Pong

Adam Jacobs, contributor Who knew Florida had hipsters? Anyway, the Jacuzzi Boys, a rock trio from Miami proves just that. Jacuzzi Boys latest release Ping Pong isn’t going to blow your mind with musical innovations but it will leave you with a smile. Their sound reminds me of a softer Descendents, or less nerdy Weezer. Unlike Weezer, I actually wanna party …

La Sera – Queens

Spencer DeVine, contributor I’ll be honest, at first I wasn’t 100% sure about this album.I have come around more to it after a couple goes of it but that might just be this Strawberry Kush doing it’s job. The music itself is catchy and pleasant, the groove definitely makes me tap my toes but I feel like personally there’s a disconnect …

Of Montreal – Innocence Reaches

Samantha Gilweit, contributor Of Montreal’s latest, Innocence Reaches, is definitely not a complete pile of shit. Frontman Kevin Barnes’ strengths are full force in this album – titillating synths, dance floor worthy rhythms, and clever lyrics displaying a whimsical psychosis. Many who’ve written about Of Montreal immediately pinpoint the influences of two avant-garde, pop idols: Prince and Bowie. But 2016’s …

Merso – Red World

Sam Wingspan, contributor On, Red World, by the Seattle based Merso, you are served an album that revels in multitude. At the same time you’re hearing an eight track thundering opus that anybody could dance to, while concurrently, should you feel the urge, head banging would be an absolutely acceptable move; the seemingly effortless tango between rhythm and intensity marrying delightfully.While …

Pony Death Ride – Cat Sounds

The Dirty Bird, contributor I resent that the stoners at Savage Henry asked me to review this album. They are trying to pander to my love of cats. Sure, I’m surrounded by indoor pussy at home, but that doesn’t automatically mean that I’m going to love some ridiculous album that’s all about our feline friends. I mean, c’mon, how stupid does …

Why My Daughter Thinks Walgreens Is a Grocery Store

Tiffany Greysen, contributor Unless it’s for me, I really hate shopping. I don’t like standing or walking, I’d much rather be sitting somewhere playing on Facebook. I also hate long lines, I actually hate any kind of line, or any kind of waiting. I’m the worst kind of grown-up. I look like a grown-up, but I’m not the kind of …

Red Pill, Blue Pill, Purp

OJ Patterson, contributor The cylinder’s milky smoke evaporated into a spike, jabbing, piercing, probing until Neo found himself in an all white room. Only two beat-up armchairs and an old timey television in “middle” of the “room” interrupted the emptiness. “This is the Construct,” announced Morpheus, stepping from behind a cloud of smoke. “It’s our loading program. We can load …
