Not Just the Name of a Great Christmas Movie

Illumination appears in the strangest places sometimes. We were watching the train wreck of our hometown television show Trauma a little bit ago, hating it, but wanting to see our house in the background. The writing, the characters, bleh. And…

Brilliant Bites

My favorite thing to do in the entire world is travel. And one of my favorite things to do during trips is (big surprise) sample the local cuisine. I put in my time doing research, seeking out the big-reputation, big-ticket…

Best Rap Album by Horny Punk Kids

This is one hip hop record you're not going to hear on the radio -- and not just because it sounds like it cost as much as P. Diddy's daily Cristal bill to make. Oakland's Gravy Train!!!! is as raunchy…
