Serving Up A Column For People Hungry For Secret Information On Celebrities’ Lives

February 26th, 2021

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Orange juice? Me, too! Coffee? Me, too! Leftover pizza? Me, too! I guess there must be some special bond between us. Something unique. Something real. You know, I haven’t felt this way since I read that Charlize Theron likes to drink Red Bull — just as I do. I hadn’t felt that way since I had read that Sarah Michelle Gellar is a big fan of tiramisu — just as I am. Those revelations were important to me, my sense of identity and my sense of well-being because they gave me a tangible, iron-clad link to someone famous. And that, we all know, is... Read More

If You’re A Human Being Living On Earth, You Need To Read This

February 19th, 2021

Welcome to the column for all carbon-based life-forms. If you breathe oxygen, this is for you. And if you live on a planet, especially Earth, well, then, you’ve come to the right place. Sorry, but I’m just following the new trend in advertising: casting as absurdly wide a net as possible. Products used to be advertised to a fairly specialized base. Each ad could be counted on to pander in its own unique way. You’d have your commercials aimed at seniors, in which someone sincere who was on TV when it was still seen only in black-and-white would give a testimonial about the product. Said commercial... Read More

Remember This If You’re Alone On Valentine’s Day…

February 12th, 2021

“Do you feel as depressed as I do about being single on Valentine’s Day?” A friend of mine messaged me this question the other day, and it got me thinking, “Am I depressed at all about being single this Valentine’s Day?” And it got me answering myself rather quickly, “No. No, I am not depressed at all about being single this Valentine’s Day.” Not in the least. That’s not to say that I’m a cold, heartless bastard with no sense of romance or desire for romantic love or a significant other in my life. But it is to say... Read More

Here’s Who Joe Biden Desperately Needs To Help During His Presidency

January 22nd, 2021

Like millions of other people, I watched the inauguration of Joe Biden as president this week, in part to see if Kanye West was going to jump on stage and claim that he should’ve won the award. But as I was watching Joe talk about how he was going to help millions of Americans in need, to help them get the aid they so desperately seek, I couldn’t help but think of one particular person I hope is rescued from her situation. That person? Taylor Swift. Oh, no, wait, not her. The person I’m talking about is, of course, Alice, the maid on “The Brady Bunch.” That’s... Read More

Can You Really Become Addicted To Videogames?

January 15th, 2021

“Fortnite.” “Overwatch.” “God Of War.” Know anyone who plays those games? Know people who say, or demonstrate by their actions, that they’re “addicted” to those games? Think they’re exaggerating? They might not be. It sounds like a sci-fi scenario, but from a logical standpoint, you could become addicted to video games. Much like anything else addicting, all it would require would be repetitive stimulation of the right portions of the brain, creating a psychological and physiological need. And given the practice of playing video games,... Read More

Return To Earth, Alien David Bowie, And Save Us!

January 8th, 2021

In honor of David Bowie’s birthday today, Jan. 8, Happy birthday, Bowie, whatever planet you’re on… Ever wonder what music made by an extraterrestrial might sound like? Apparently, kind of like this: “Let’s dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues…” Which, if you play it backwards, sounds like this: “Dance let’s shoes red your on put blues the dance and laser beam cattle rectums. . . ’’ Amazing how that works, isn’t it? And you thought only Selena Gomez wrote about laser beaming cattle rectums, didn’t you? Little did you know . .... Read More

Is Something HUGE Happening TOMORROW? This TIME TRAVELER FROM 2485 Says So…

January 1st, 2021

I hope you’re stocked up on pizza rolls and champagne! Because a HUGE WORLD EVENT is going to happen TOMORROW. How do I know? A time traveler told me. Yup, that’s right. A time traveler. No, I haven’t been out to the Milan dispensary this morning, I’m talking about a person calling themselves @thatonetimetraveler on TikTok, who claims to be from the year 2485, where their company, Aura, has built the first functioning time machine. The time traveler, who also claims to be human and from the planet Vadho (you know, where Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion built that house),... Read More
