Westboro Baptist Better Have a Gahtdamb Seat!

Westboro Baptist is a boil on all of our collective asses. They’re to Christians what those Jim Crow cartoons from the 1920s are to Disney. We try to dust them under our shoe and act like we don’t know them. But like the roaches they are, they stay coming back. We do not claim those […]

The Grossness of Green Ketchup: Throwback Thursday

Remember when the team at Heinz suffered from a bout of temporary insanity and put out green ketchup for the American public to consume? Yeah, it was around Y2K (year 2000, for the babies who went “HUH?”). Actually, they had purple ketchup too but that’s close to red so I wasn’t as grossed out. GREEN […]

A Must Watch Conversation Between Maya Angelou and Dave Chappelle

Wow. That’s what I said after watching the conversation between Dr. Maya Angelou and Dave Chappelle. It’s from an episode of Sundance Channel’s Iconoclasts, where they spent a day together in her home in Winston-Salem. I’ve never seen it until today and I am floored by the poignant, insightful, and really important moment they had. […]

Maya Angelou: Rise in Power After Living in Purpose

Maya Angelou is gone and I was not ready. I wasn’t ready because I just figured Mother Maya would stay to give us more words. I figured she’d stay forever and just continue to be magic. I’m so selfish because she’s given more than enough. I don’t think I have the right words to speak […]

#YesAllWomen: What We Should Teach Boys

The #YesAllWomen hashtag started on Twitter as a result of the 140-page manifesto of the Santa Barbara killer. It detailed his life, his plans and why he decided to go on a murder spree. A good amount of it was him being butthurt about women not wanting to have sex with him. Anywho, the powerful […]

What I Imagine Kanye and Kim’s Wedding Day Will Be Like

Word on these streets is that the King and Queen of Can’t Have a Seat (Kanye West and Kim Kardashian) will be getting married Saturday in Florence, Italy. These two do not know how NOT to be extra, which means the wedding will probably be overly gaudy, full of the who’s who of Hollywood and […]

Sega Genesis and Sonic the Hedgehog: Throwback Thursday

Back in my youth, I enjoyed video games just like everyone else. The last time I was really into it was way back when Sega Genesis was the IT console to have. You remember it.
