There’s a New(ish) Breed of Cartoon

There’s a new(ish) breed of cartoon roaming the fields of entertainment.

What I’m Streaming: Cult Classics

What I’m Streaming: Cult Classics

You’ve done it. You’re out of binges. You’ve blitzed through the entire Twilight series for the eleventh time—”ironically,” to be sure. All Netflix has for you is a new slew of terrible originals, like Naked, where Marlon Wayans does Groundhog Day with no pants. Hulu’s your asshole art school friend who thinks mother! is like “so deep, you just […]

Think of us like a video […]

The Content Arms Race and The slow bleed that is Peak TV

Remember when there were just seven network channels? If you were lucky, you had a friend that had cable, giving you access to Nickelodeon and Bonanza reruns. Fast forward twenty years, and now you would have big-budget, polished TV series being churned out at a historical pace. HBO is taunting viewers with teasers for the […]

Culture II: Streaming Killed the Art of the Album

Culture II: Streaming Killed the Art of the Album

Like a Bengal Tiger or a Bald Eagle, from 2008 on, the art of the album was in danger of extinction. In an industry that was once ran by the singles game, hip-hop didn’t see a need for full albums as artists could drop singles, go for the quick fix and see results. Spitting in the face […]
