Dave is back, and while I couldn’t quite get over his outfit (is he going to get back to cleaning toilets after the show?) , his latest Netflix stand-up special is a winner, with multiple spit-take moments and a return to his willingness to push the envelope. Especially bold was his take on how Michael […]Read More Dave Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones”
I think the main theme of this film, much like Full Metal Jacket, is the duality of man. Leo’s Rick Dalton and Pitt’s Cliff Booth represent two sides of a personality that makes up a full human.

Now, I […]Read More LeBron v. Jordan (2017)
…well, it seems that every ten years or so, a black man accused of a crime by some combination of gold-diggers, corrupt cops, and careerist district attorneys can indeed get a fair trial, if they are fortunate enough to accumulate enough capital via a career of entertaining white people. Hey, hey, hey! Now, […]Read More What do Bill, Mike, and OJ have in common?
