The road ahead: Why 2021 won’t be the year of redemption

I don’t mean to sound like a Debbie Downer, but 2021 may not prove to be any better than 2020. Much of the disgust towards this year is heavily steeped in pure shock-value and the relentlessness that this year has had on serving up bullshit unfettered. This year will go down as the year of […]

I’m just not feeling it…

A King Has Fallen

My heart is heavy AF right now. This has been one hell of a year and we still have four months to go. Legit, this year started on some bullsh*t with the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and little did we know that this would set the tone for the remainder of the hell that […]

I mean whose idea was it to throw a creepy ass clown into a music-box that you had to crank to an even more creepy song […]
