John Mayer's New Album Doesn't Suck

May 29th, 2012 by

No, seriously. Stop Laughing.

 

But will you still want to punch him?

For the past decade, John Mayer has been one of the most frustrating figures in music. Much like an athlete with an attitude problem, Mayer has all the talent in the world, but he’s never been able to not suck. He can shred like a motherfucker, but he chooses to put out wuss-rock for 16-year-old girls who think Maroon 5 is too edgy. He’s had a few tolerable singles along the way, but he hasn’t come close to living up to his potential. Read More

"Community" Is Back, Except It Might Suck Now

May 21st, 2012 by

I spent the entire third season of “Community” wondering if there was going to be a fourth. Much like “Arrested Development” before it, “Community” has become the quintessential acclaimed show that has a very-dedicated-but-very-small fan base. Luckily, after 8 months of anxiously pacing my room waiting to learn my show’s fate, things worked out: “Community” was given a 13 episode order for a fourth season. Read More

Family Guy Misses Giant Target

May 19th, 2012 by

As much as I’ve grown weary of Family Guy’s wacky-for-the-sake-of-wacky antics, and extreme tendency towards rape jokes, I still tune in every week. Why? Partially due to an obsessive need to see every episode no matter how bad it gets, but also because once in awhile the show can still be pretty damn good. Even in this dim season, there have still been a few standouts, like the one where Brian and Stewie traveled in time to the pilot episode, or when Stewie started dating a girl who was exactly like him, but turned out to be more evil. As awful as some episodes have been, there is still some¬†occasional¬†wit left in this show. Read More

Hard Times For Baseball's One Percent

May 14th, 2012 by

As I mentioned in my haiku-themed MLB preview, baseball can often be nauseatingly predictable. We know what teams are going to win each year, and we know who’s going to suck. Admittedly, bad teams can eventually develop quality talent and become contenders, but that takes a while. Plus, they usually trade their best prospects to the Yankees or Red Sox before they can reach the playoffs anyway. Read More

Beast Music: Ex-Stripe Shines In Solo Gig

May 3rd, 2012 by

Review of Jack White’s Blunderbuss

Considering how many bands Jack White’s been in over the past decade, you wonder why he even felt the need for a solo album. But after dissolving his main act, The White Stripes, last year, White chose to go on his own. The result is one of the most diverse, intense, and ultimately rewarding albums in a discography full of classics. Read More

The NBA's 5 Least Valuable Players

April 23rd, 2012 by

It’s a list. You like lists.

The NBA season is coming to an end, and this year’s MVP race is fairly boring. It’s basically between Lebron James and Kevin Durant, with the deciding factor being whether or not voters will overlook how much they personally hate Lebron and admit that he’s the best player in the league. But the race for the league’s worst player? That’s way more exciting! Tons of players were horrendous this year. This column honors them, the 5 most worthless players in the NBA. Read More

Ozzie and Fidel: Bros for Life

April 16th, 2012 by

All offseason long, the Miami Marlins looked like a disaster waiting to happen. From their ultra-extravagant, ultra-expensive ballpark, to their roster that relies on a few star players, and not a great deal of depth, it seemed certain that things were going to blow up in their faces by the time July rolled around.
