What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
How are Zoos still a thing? In this day and age where people purport to be on the side of animal welfare (is that another ad for a donkey sanctuary on the telly?) how can we allow the caging of certain animals just so the average pleb can […]
In 2001, a cheap and tacky B-movie titled The Fast And The Furious unleashed a filmic demon onto the world, a demon which over two decades later has yet to be vanquished and placed back in the Hollywood dungeon from whence it came. Who’d have thought that a […]
Starring three of the most deformed and misshapen actors in Hollywood, Superbad is a film that’s not much to look at when it comes to star-quality. That doesn’t matter of course, because this is apparently 2007’s greatest achievement in film comedy, or at least that’s what we were […]
I cannot stand the slang term “Like A Boss”, not only because it’s been used more than a choirboy in a Catholic church but also because of its confused and misplaced sentiment. If you’ve been living on another planet, the expression “like a boss” means doing something well, […]
I’d never heard of the word “whataboutism” before John Oliver mentioned it as he spoke at length about Donald Trump on his show Everything That Trump Did Wrong Last Week, sorry, Last Week Tonight. If you take the programme’s definition, “whatabout-ism” is a way in which some people […]
The recent death of Gangsta Boo got me thinking about how much Three 6 Mafia changed over the years. I’ll admit that I was more of a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fan but back in the mid-90’s, I heard Three 6’s debut album Mystic Stylez and loved their similarly double-time, […]
Ben Affleck + Jennifer Lopez = Bennifer Brad Pitt + Angelina Jolie = Brangelina Kim Kardashian + Kanye West = Kimye Tom Hiddleston + Taylor Swift = Hiddleswift Tom Cruise + Katie Holmes = TomKat This is what happens when a single celebrity is so lacking in charisma […]
Love Actually is now touted as “one of the greatest Christmas films of all time”, I assume, by the beige, easily-pleased titterati. When this flick was first released, there were loads of folk declaring how mediocre it was, but in recent years, Love Actually has unfathomably snowballed into […]
Marriage is such an archaic concept. A wedding ceremony is closer to signing-over ownership than a declaration of love, with spouses being no more than chattel draped in overpriced finery. Like a game show where you “bank” on your assumed best prize (in this case the best you […]
Did Margaret Thatcher or Theresa May do anything to benefit British women? Did Barack Obama do anything positive for black Americans? Most people would say no, and yet numerous wankers in the mainstream media are currently bragging about Liz Truss’ cabinet which apparently doesn’t feature “white men” in […]
Have you noticed a lot of comedians incessantly chirping on about the “woke” ruining comedy or “cancel culture” affecting what they can and can’t say? Comedians, especially stand-up comedians, have recently remodelled themselves as martyrs of freedom as though they’re on the front-lines of a war, a culture […]
Us is a very underwhelming film, and judging by its score on various review aggregate sites, it’s a hell of an overrated one too. The trailer promised horror and an eerie atmosphere but there’s hardly any in the finished product. Like Jordan Peele’s previous offering Get Out, this […]
It’s strange how certain words evolve over time to favour the establishment, reinforce the status quo, and quash any opposition. There are numerous words that we use on an almost daily basis whose etymology shows an obvious path of racism, xenophobia, jingoism, the subversion of foreign cultures, and […]
