It’s a long weekend, what with Memorial Day, so y’all have no excuse for coming through this Sunday night. Come check out some good hip-hop, and if you’re early enough, you can get a USB drive packed with free music.

Not Sure How I Feel About This One

Hitman may not have been the greatest film, but dammit if it wasn’t without its charms. It certainly wasn’t about no pussified PG-13 rating, like a lot of recent action flicks, what with its abundance of splattery headshots, and a pretty sweet katana fight in a train car. Oh yeah, and Olga Kurylenko sure did […]

Oh, This Has Got To Stop!!!

It’s getting to the point where KidzBop is eventually gonna become irrelevant. As it stands, it’s only a matter of time before one of these pre-pubescent YouTube discoveries comes out with a song featuring Nikki Minaj. It’s time to raise the terror alert level, ’cause this kid is a threat to all the beautiful freedoms […]

How To Waste A Perfectly Good Friday Night

I rarely go to promo events for movies. Not that I had ever had a bad experience with them until this past Friday night. They usually just happened to fall on nights where I’m already doing something . . . or the event didn’t interest me to begin with. But for whatever reason, I felt […]
