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

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

Look Back On The Quad-Cities’ Year In Arts And Entertainment This Week With QuadCities.com

December 27th, 2020

It’s been one hell of a year. People always say this year is one we’ll never forget. In the case of 2020, that’s not hyperbole. Everyone will remember this year, and most people won’t remember it fondly. In truth, it seems like it’s been multiple years in one. It began with a couple of months of normalcy, as the specter of coronavirus loomed but the government downplayed it and so people didn’t take it seriously. Then came March. The first two weeks seemed a bit ominous, but nothing really prepared us for the shutdown mid-March, which was accompanied by people snapping up toilet paper... Read More

A Christmas Classic Has An Even Greater Significance During This Trying Year

December 25th, 2020

It was late 1984, and Boomtown Rats front man Bob Geldof was sitting down to watch a bit of telly as the calendar began to turn towards the holidays. However, what he saw that evening was anything but festive. Geldof watched as a documentary news program detailed the horrible starving and suffering going on in Africa due to incredible droughts and oppression. And as he watched, he was moved to tears, sorrow, and finally, action. He knew he had to do something to help, but just donating money himself seemed so small, so insignificant. How could he do something larger? Finally, he had the idea, and... Read More

This Year Has Sucked Enough, Let People Have Their McRibs And Nickelback

December 18th, 2020

I was scrolling through my news feed on Facebook today, as I am wont to do when I want to incrementally lose faith in humanity, and I stopped briefly on a posting by someone trying to make themselves look far more hip and cool than they actually are. I know, I know, hard to pin that one down when it comes to social media! You’ll never guess who I’m talking about when you’ve got 80 million people to choose from there… Anyway, the person was making a comment about a certain fast food item that some people (not myself, but some people), profoundly enjoy. They post about... Read More
