a question for Jordan Peterson fans

If you like Jordan Peterson, do you agree with his theory that SJWs are a new form of communism? Jordan Peterson has more than once argued that “Social Justice” advocates are basically rebranded communists. The below is just one example of his conflating “neoprogressive social justice” methods with being a “Marxist comprehension of the world.” […]

Emma Goldman’s dance revolution: a lesson in historical inaccuracy and meme devolvement

“I insisted that our Cause could not expect me to become a nun and that the movement should not be turned into a cloister. If it meant that, I did not want it. I want freedom, the right to self-expression, everybody’s right to beautiful, radiant things.”

Rachel Dolezal’s kid is amazing!

Inexplicably, and without wanting the fame, Dolezal has found herself in the public eye as cultural enemy number one, a person who has done one of the rarest things you can do in our polarized society, where everyone who isn’t us is either a hipster or a culture warrior, a racist or a SJW, a misogynist or a feminazi: she’s managed to offend everyone.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Rape: Why Has No One Investigated This Allegation?

For years, we’ve squealed with delight at all the ways Tyson annoys conservatives. The rise in their hatred for him has been matched pound for pound with how much we’ve grown to love him. He’s become a hero to atheists, to feminists, to late night hosts, to fans of space exploration, to nerds, to science-loving comic book readers, and to environmentalists. Is Tyson too much of a hero of the left for us to believe he could have moral failings?

Take a chance on Erasure!

If you don’t love at least a little bit of Erasure, you deserve to be dragged into the street and chopped into tiny pieces by mannequin babies that have been wished into life by satanists and now wield dull hatchet blades…

My dog is in a Juiceboxxx video.

World, say hello to Valerie Solanas, my dog. This is the new Juiceboxxx video, “The Saga Never Ends,” from his upcoming mixtape. If Valerie just does four more videos, I think she’ll have a larger YouTube presence than me. P.S. The reason I named her “Valerie Solanas” is that, when I first rescued her from the […]

I sent a get-well card and wound up with a corpse…

It started off great, much like a get-well letter should be! But then very very quickly it descended into a place of madness, of darkness, sex, and depravity, so that I’m worried it will be like a Groundhog’s Day of health and scare Allison back into remission!

interview with Tim Heidecker (of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!)

Somehow I was pulled into interviewing Tim Heidecker at the last minute for L.A. RECORD. I’m not saying I was unprepared, but I had only about 24 hours to get this together. He and I didn’t have my famous chemistry, and he had no interest in talking about the sexual inappropriateness of David Liebe Hart, […]

EARL SCRUGGS R.I.P.

He was a titan in his field, an innovator, and it was a supreme pleasure to interview Mr. Scruggs and his son Gary many years ago, as one of my first assignments for L.A. RECORD. He will be missed.

“I Need Love” – the least romantic song of all time?

I love old-school L.L. Cool J, but man, this has to be the opposite of a love song.  Who could possibly be wooed by these words? But where you at?  You’re neither here or there. I swear I can’t find you anywhere. Damn sure you ain’t in my closet, or under my rug. This love search is really […]
