I've Joined The Minecraft Brigade

So there’s this thing called Minecraft. I mostly know about it because YouTube’s Gaming category seems to have thousands of videos of being, drunk and sober, playing this pixelated create-your-own-world-adventure-whatever game.

Why is Nicki Minaj on American Idol?

I don’t watch American Idol. I didn’t care for it back in the days when I was in college and I still don’t care for it now as the producers try to entice a new audience with the induction of Nicki Minaj as a judge on their panel. For viewers who cringe at the supposedly... Read more »
