There is always a point in time when an idea becomes routine and stale. The Comedy Panel Show is a great example of this, and its multiple offspring have now been on our television screens for what seems like aeons. Over the last two decades, the “No Prize, […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Quentin Tarantino is one of the most overrated directors of modern times. Hold on, I think I should do this Tarantino style… a bit too long, full of expletives, out of sequence, and put pointlessly into chapters. Chapter One: Django Was Not Off The Chain Django Unchained was […]
M. Night Shyamalan is a one hit wonder, and if you’ve watched his last few films; you’ll be left wondering how he made even one hit. Back in 1999, Shyamalan surprised everybody by creating the low-budget brooding mystery; The Sixth Sense. This was the year when almost all […]
What is the point in the MOBO Awards? What started as a wannabe BET-cum-Source-Award-knockoff has slowly become shittier and shittier over the years. The longer this lame excuse of an award show goes on, the more it seems to sell-out. I mean having Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, and […]
MTV is lame; plain and simple. It has always tried to give an impression of being “cool” and “underground”, with its colour-changing logo complete with a spray-painted graffiti-style “TV” against a solid-looking “M”. In reality MTV is far from cool. From the minute they played the mundane “Video […]
It’s 2013 and Hip-Hop is almost dead thanks to a handful of lame faux-MC’s that spurt out the same lyrical content on every track they spit on. Contrivances like “Clubs”, “Cars”, “Clothing Labels”, and “Champagne” is all these cunts seem to yap on about. If it weren’t for […]
In the eighties, Richard Curtis was responsible for many of the classic comedies shown on British television. He was one of the writers for the fast-paced ‘Not The Nine O’Clock News’, the very first ‘Comic Relief’, a few episodes of ‘Spitting Image’, and was also a writer for […]
Natasha Leggero, a poor blind man’s Mia Kirshner, has always been a mediocre and forgettable comedian. A couple of years back, this wannabe-funny and wannabe-pretty, stain of stand-up was busy doing her “I don’t like Hip-Hop music” act to bored audiences in empty rooms. When I first heard […]
Whether you agree with Monarchy or not, it is almost impossible to respect the idea of superiority when the Royals themselves are under-achieving imbeciles. In Britain, the Queen and Prince Philip have no qualifications whatsoever (whether academic or monarchical) and yet they reign over a nation in which […]
Our life on this planet is constructed around contrasting yet unavoidable opposites; from day/night, male/female, hot/cold, happy/sad, we cannot have one without the other. People are the same, roughly half of us will enjoy a certain event or period of time, whereas the other half will completely hate […]
Celebrity worship and Reality Television are diseases of this century for which we have yet to find a cure. Since the turn of the millennium, becoming a star has become as straight forward as heating a microwave meal, and like a TV dinner; Reality TV is a tasteless […]
When we look at ourselves, we see a human shell that we had zero influence on prior to creation. Since we had no design input, we do our best with what we have. We can dress a certain way, wear certain colours, styles, and textures. We can also […]
Making money seems to be the most important factor for Hollywood Studios when it comes to the continuation of a movie franchise. During planning and pre-production, they are quick to sign any Writer, Director, and even Actor regardless of their track record, and during this process seem strangely […]
