Study shows studies are terrible; reporting worse. →
Yeah, maybe buying convenient, comforting, pre-made food makes you more depressed. And maybe giving birth makes you pregnant. Good work once again, shitty useless faux-science reporting. Thanks for everything.
Some atheists are dickbags, the difference between...
sageoflogic: And thus we hold our own accountable for dickbaggery. So thusly I would not mind if someone hacked “TheAmazingAtheist“‘s multiple accounts and renamed them all “The Dickbag that also does not believe in a god” er we also don’t have any “own.” I am not part of an atheist community. other people who happen to not believe in any gods don’t speak for me,...

A Tribe Called Red - free album!
Oh my god get this; get this now. If you haven’t been a reader since forever, or you need a reminder, this is your reminder: This is the sound of my heart exploding out of my chest!! Or rather, this is the sound of someone else’s heart exploding out of their chest… and it makes my heart explode out of my chest to hear it.

Geraldo is on a whole other level
I have seen some stunningly insincere and weaselly non-apologies in my day, but the recent remarks by Geraldo Rivera are so incredibly devoid of regret or intent to repair damage done that I’m taken aback that anyone would stoop to using the word “apology” in the same paragraph as any reference to them. I don’t think I have ever read or heard someone who is pretending to...
Ego Trip: unreleased Rammelzee interview (1999)
People always ask me for proof or some citation whenever I say that there’s been a lack of corroboration from Cypress Hill that they were influenced by Rammelzee’s performance on “Beat Bop” with K-Rob. This previously unreleased interview that Ego Trip did with Rammel thirteen years ago (whoah) provides more citation than I’ve been able to muster online, previously....
Queer Bass Underground
I’m rapping at Q-Bounce on Friday, a show that is billed as Queer Bass Underground. I went to the inaugural edition last month, featuring Rae Spoon, and danced my face’s ass off. I think a lot of my original material is not extremely bass-heavy dance music. Gentle readers of this blog, if YOU were headed out to dance the ass off of your face at Queer Bass Underground, what would YOU...
Fuck The Cops, I Got Superstar Props (but...
People who are aware that not everyone has the privilege of being served by the police, and even that the state justice system is flawed and unjust at it’s core, could in many cases however be demonstrating more awareness that not everyone has the privilege, or luxury, to NOT deal with them. I see posts everywhere from kids who are not in danger, reiterating anti-snitch rhetoric...
So, Spotify is running a contest where I have to...
chasingdevon: I’m about 3 songs in and yeah…I don’t think that’s physically possible. Edit: I like ‘I’m Addicted”…things are letting up a bit… it’s like converting to judaism! are you sure you want this? are you SURE you want this? ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT THIS??
Jesse: (addressing Hazel, a 6 year old chihuahua/terrier mix) Hazel, if you were a robot, your name would be Hazotron.
Kira: Jesse! Don't give my dog too many ideas!
Deleted Scene from TMNT: The Movie (1990)
Michaelangelo: (James Cagney impression) Mmm, you dirty rat... you killed my brother!
April: That must be Splinter's favourite!
Record Scratch Noise: ERRRT
TMNT: *not laughing*
April: ...it was a JOKE!
Donatello: (quietly) That doesn't mean it wasn't racist, April.
Ms. Simone's 9th Grade Hip-Hop History Test →
Some delightful anonymous asker posted a link to a post on The Awl about the hip-hop history class that schoolteacher Becca Simone just gave to her grade 9 students at FDR High School in NYC. That article linked to the tumblr post I’m reblogging below, and you know I’m going to take the test in the privacy of my own home. According to the tags to the original post, Ms. Simone (not...
aghostwhorawks asked: Man, I don't know how it's even possible that I've missed you until now - yay for smutty bear blogs that lead you into better, brighter shores! I love your beats, I love your flow. Whether or not it's something you'd appreciate, I find you to be an insanely handsome fellow... As such I felt it necessary to hit you up in person and divulge my platitudes.

On Katy Perry, Male Performance and Power
thesociologicalear: I usually try to stay away from Katy Perry on principle, mostly because she thinks “tr*nny” and “hoodrat” jokes are hi-fucking-larious, and also because I never know exactly what to make of her. Since her debut with the amazingly terrible 2008 single, “I Kissed a Girl,” I have done numerous one-eighties in approaching her career. What does she want? Who is she appealing to?...

Ah god dammit and piss. I was really enjoying this enormously long and dense article; this insightful blog post hopping up and down all over this really great study about why studies are largely bullshit or at least used for bullshit much of the time, and the dude who wrote it was keeping it in lay enough terms that I was totally on top of everything and not getting lost at all, and I was just...

dasracistilluminati: If you are into Das Racist’s music (and I assume you are), you certainly know Wesleyan alum Khalif Diouf aka Le1f. This New York rapper, producer and dancer is the beatmaker behind Das Racist’s “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” and “Jungle Fever”, a song in which he also dropped a memorable verse. Le1f’s long-awaited debut album “Dark York” is finally coming out on...
