Beyond The Fluff: Uncovering The Hardcore World Of Festival Of Trees Teddy Bear Teas

Entertainment is a tricky thing. One person’s wholesome fare is another person’s demon-possessed trash. From time to time, I’ll get emails from irate people who are disappointed that I’ve recommended some bit of entertainment they find to be offensive. One of them messaged me about it. Another called me, taking me to task for “leading children down the path of evil.”  How she knew I’d been a tour guide at Disneyland is beyond me.  But nonetheless, this lady wasn’t pleased. “You shouldn’t be telling parents to let their children go to demonic concerts…you... Read More

Let's All Be Cool And Have A Great Halloween This Year. Here's How...

Pro Tips On Being Cool To Trick-or-Treaters This Halloween: 1. Whether or not you “believe in” allergies to peanuts, chocolate, or whatever, is irrelevant. Shut the fuck up about it if a kid says they have one. Have a couple different varieties of candy to give out to kids, including Starbursts and Skittles, which I don’t think have any potential allergens in them, and which most kids love anyway. 2. It doesn’t matter if a kid is shy, autistic, quiet or is just rude. Don’t be that douchebag that makes them say “Trick or Treat” or withhold candy until... Read More

It’s like the Brando... Read More
