That whole Trap sound has been grating on the ears for a while now, it was okay in 2010, ’11, ’12 but it’s fast becoming a homogenised and indistinguishable mess. The majority of Trap is mediocre, it possesses none of the credibility of Boom Bap, none of the […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
The show Gogglebox proves how far terrestrial television has fallen over the past decade and a half. Lost in a sea of Reality TV and motivated by low cost and high returns, Channel 4‘s best concept is for us at home to watch people on TV as they […]
Romesh Ranganathan is the type of comedian who loves to vacillate almost schizophrenically on the topic of race, culture, and identity. His jokes basically affirm that he’s 100% British and he incessantly speaks about how he’s at odds with his family’s heritage, worse still he serves up this […]
Leigh Francis seems to be the type of comedian who masks his sexism and racism behind various cartoonish characters including that of “Keith Lemon”. Judging from his continual one-dimentional comedy however, it’s conveniently impossible to tell where Leigh Francis ends and Keith Lemon begins. Even as far back […]
It’s extremely strange that someone like Shawn Levy exists in show business; his lack of talent is pretty self-evident and simply glancing at a list of his films is enough to convince anybody that he’s a second-rate shit peddler. Levy if you don’t know, is a mediocre director […]
Whitewashing in film is the practice of casting a white Actor for a role originally intended for someone of colour. In a previous article I wrote about white Actors donning black, brown, or yellow-face to “accurately” play minority roles, but this time I thought I’d write about something […]
Contemporary men’s fashion seems to be going through a period of stagnancy and almost everything you see on today’s man is an amalgamation of clothing and accessories worn over the last decade. As a rule of thumb, anything underground is cool and anything overground is lame, and anything […]
We are living in a time when militarism has polluted almost every aspect of our leisure time from film, television, music, sports, news, charities and of course politics. These days simply seeing a camouflage pattern against our country’s flag is enough to send the sheep-like masses into a […]
Drake is an example of how mediocre mainstream Hip-Hop has become. This middle class, middle-of-the-road Rapper has been annoying us with his poor-ass delivery and whiny, horrisonant voice since the lame “Over” and he’s been inflicting the airwaves with his horrid singing since “Find Your Love”. The track […]
Alex Jones is such an annoying, contradictory fake… no not that presenter from The One Show, no not that mentally challenged character from the movie Prisoners, I’m talking about the radio talk show host and apparent conspiracy theorist. During the late nineties and early noughties it was very […]
The hypocrisy of our society when it comes to the treatment of animals is dumbfounding. Your neighbour keeps their pet dog or cat locked in a room and that’s cruel, but your local restaurant boils a lobster or crab to death after it’s been kept in a tiny […]
Society has become extremely contradictory since the millennium, especially when it comes to liberty. The people incessantly brag about their freedom but following a certain event they seem to be in a mad dash to erode the very freedoms they’re apparently so fond of. After a terrorist attack […]
Back in 1997, real Hip-Hop heads were listening to “The War Report” by Capone-N-Noreaga or “I Got Next” by KRS-One, but unbeknownst to them, bubbling under these credible releases was a sleeping giant. Who’d have thought that instead of making the likes of Royal Flush, Killarmy, or Artifacts […]
