Is Lincoln’s Ghost A Pervert? Are Blues Musicians Oompa-Loompas? Find Out Those Answers And More…

May 7th, 2021

You’ve heard the expression, ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer. Well, ask several stupid questions, and get several stupider answers. Case in point: Q: Why aren’t the comedy shows telling more jokes about Joe Biden? A: The same reason there aren’t many jokes involving a turkey sandwich on white bread without mayonnaise because someone thinks it’s “too spicy.” Q: Are you saying Joe Biden is boring? A: I’m not saying Joe Biden is boring, but when he and Jill are trying to spice things up in the bedroom a bit, he says, “Call me Joey Biden.” Q:... Read More

May The 4th Be With You! Could The Force Become A Religion?

May 4th, 2021

Could “May the Force be with you” someday be more than a T-shirt slogan? Might it one day become the climactic phrase of a religious ceremony? According to Hollywood lore, when the first “Star Wars” film became an outrageous success, George Lucas’ ambitious friend Francis Ford Coppola suggested that Lucas try to turn the philosophies of the “Star Wars” series into a religion. Lucas laughed it off. However, given recent events, he may have to once more fend off Coppola’s insistence. Since Disney bought the franchise, the “Star Wars” films and shows... Read More

Are Celebrities Mind-Controlled Zombies?

April 30th, 2021

The Royal Family! Taylor dating Jen’s ex! Kanye West says something stupid! Ever notice that the more heinous things get regarding the economy, wars, presidential scandals, etc., the more intensely the media ignores the real news to concentrate on either celebrity scandals or deviant crimes? Sometimes I wonder if there’s a grand conspiracy regarding celebrities as well. What if celebrities are nothing but programmed Manchurian candidates, Stepford performers, who are hypnotized and controlled by secret government handlers who then program them to do silly crap to distract the masses every time... Read More

You’ll Be Cold Busted If You Don’t Check Out The Video You Deserve!

April 19th, 2021

Its Monday, and you know what that means. That’s right. It’s time for The Video You Deserve. Mondays can be pretty dismal and dingy. And really, so is the subject matter of this song and video, but it’s so damn cheesy and goofy that it transcends what should and could be a much sadder subject. The subject is infidelity, the cold harshness of that freezing rain of a no-good cheating partner falling on you, before you walk in, cut up all their credit cards, and take back that $3700 lynx coat you got them, which is preferable to jammy flat-blasting both of them. Or, at least, that’s what Oran... Read More

From Sad Clown Paintings To Self-Pity Night, These Quad-Cities Events Just Don’t Make The Cut

April 16th, 2021

Every week, we provide you with a huge calendar of activities that will take place in the Quad-Cities area over the coming week. Because we love you. And because it’s our job … to love you. (The preceding sentence was written in tribute to the late Luther Vandross.) However, some calendar items we receive don’t make the list. Some are out of the geographic area. Some aren’t really entertainment. And some … well, some just don’t seem to fit in, if you know what I mean. For those of you who don’t know what I mean, I thought I’d provide a few examples. Following are listings for a... Read More

The Real Secret To Great Pictures: Buttcheeks

April 9th, 2021

It’s that time of year again, and if you have kids in elementary school, you know exactly what I mean. School pictures time. That’s right, that time when you get your kids all dressed up and tidied up and get their hair looking perfect and their outfits looking spot on and send them to school, and then six or eight weeks later you get a packet of pictures that features a child that looks fantastic, but has a look on his or her face somewhere between fear, disinterest and a desperate need to pee. I’ve been pretty lucky over the years in that my 13-year-old’s pictures have been pretty good. ... Read More

New Book Asks, What If Jesus’ 12 Disciples Were Ninjas Fighting The Devil To Save The World?

April 3rd, 2021

What if the disciples were ninjas fighting to prevent Satan from possessing Jesus’ body and creating a zombie antichrist to rule the world? That’s the fantastic premise driving The Blood of Destiny, the new novel by Sean Leary. It’s been described by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks as “imaginative” and “exciting” and NY Times best-selling author Matthew Clemens said “this book rocks!” It’s Good Friday, 33 AD. Jesus Christ has been ritually crucified, his soul sent to hell, to free the lost souls of purgatory. In three days’ time, it is prophesized he will rise... Read More

A Column That John David Will Absolutely Love

April 2nd, 2021

It’s an odd trend in entertainment and pop culture, but strangely, there are a lot of creative, imaginative and cool creators named John and David. Think about it. Think of all the popular and/or pop culturally influential Johns. John Lennon. John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten). John Belushi. John Cusack. Johnny Depp. John Steinbeck. John Hiatt. John Waters. Johnny Carson. John Mayer. John Grisham. John Fogerty. John Legend. John Mellencamp. Etc. Etc. And then there are the many Davids: David Letterman. Dave Chappelle. Dave Barry. David Mamet. David Lynch. David Fincher. David Byrne. David Sedaris. David... Read More

Advice To A New Teenager

March 26th, 2021

It seems like only yesterday when I turned 13. I remember it distinctly, from my party with my friends to some of the gifts I most cherished (a Converse All-Stars Magic Johnson t-shirt, a Duran Duran album, and other things which would certainly date me as a child of the ’80s.) This week, my own son, Jackson, turns 13. And it’s a much, much, different world from when I entered my teen years. I didn’t have cell phones, or the internet, or anywhere near the entertainment or virtual reality options my son does now. I spent most of my time playing outside, my mom was working most... Read More
