From the minute we hear Jay-Z’s faux-A$AP-Rocky flow on the first track of Magna Carta… Holy Grail, we are reminded of how tired this old rapper has now become. Jay-Z has gone from being a wannabe Jaz-O, wannabe Biggie, wannabe Nas, wannabe Russell Simmons, to wannabe credible. With […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Just as we thought all the racial and ethnic stereotypes shown on TV during the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s were dead and buried, in the late-’90s and early ’00s a lanky rat-looking twat gave xenophobia a televisual resurgence. From the first time we saw him on the 11 […]
Glastonbury was never in the same league as Woodstock or Monterey Pop. It was however, a festival which, with its juxtaposed atmosphere of open green country and electric guitars, became a British staple for indie rock lovers and left-wing hippies. Even though the festival began with Glam Rock, […]
Ever since Superman became an award winning hit back in 1978, Hollywood Studios have been acquiring the rights to almost every Graphic Novel and Comic Book in existence. The resulting film adaptations since Superman however have been a hit and miss affair, with the majority of recent movies […]
Over familiarity and repetitiveness is not a great combination for a movie.

From the moment a curtain opens on stage at the start of Sucker Punch, the audience can’t wait for it to close on this pitiful excuse of a movie. With its slow motion corny-ness, fake theatrical set-pieces, and wannabe erotic costumes, this is surely one of the biggest […]
Zack Snyder has somehow risen though the ranks of Hollywood by merely possessing the skills of a B-Movie Director. His films which are usually colour-graded to hell, have all the artistic merit of a Soft-core Porn romp, and mimic the aesthetics of a noughties Pop Music Video. This […]
Graphic Novels along with Comic Books have and always will be targeted toward a certain section of society. A section that has no attention span for real literature, has misconceptions about real art, and is a lover of prejudice, violence, and patriotism. These nerds and shut-ins who neither […]
Dr. Dre is a great example of media spin and blatant lies. He is sold to the public as some sort of Great business Genius, one of the Greatest producers, and the Godfather of Gangsta Rap. The only place in reality that Dre is a “G” however; is […]
Eminem is an extremely over-hyped media creation. If all of the undue praise he receives from corrupt mainstream critics was removed, it would be obvious that he is a mediocre rapper, producer, and actor. If you look closely into his eyes, you can see that even Marshall Mathers […]
Following the Boston Marathon Bombings on the 15th April 2013, a so-called “Lockdown” was issued citywide. People were ordered to stay indoors while a rag tag bunch of power-mad Security Officers occupied an entire town. To anybody with a clear head and sane mind; this looked extremely harsh […]
Channel 4 has sold out; plain and simple. Back in the 80’s and early 90’s, Channel 4 was synonymous with alternative perspectives and subversive ideas. It was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant line-up of outdated variety shows, dull soaps, and clichéd sitcoms. While other […]
