Springtime For Putin

in Opinion/Editorial | by | 07.04.14

There comes a time in all great leaders’ lives that a musical is created to showcase their greatness. Annie did for Roosevelt what The Book of Mormon is doing for John Smith; Mutiny on the Bounty lifted Fletcher Christian to the crow’s nest of fame as Evita did for Eva Peron, whose stiff upper lip [...]

Professional Hater Fred Phelps Is Dead

in Opinion/Editorial | by | 20.03.14

Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps is dead. He lived 84 hellish years, during which time he hurled abuse everywhere he went. He had few friends others than his awkward and brow-beaten family. So, as he winds his way to his paradisiacal Shangri-La, I suggest we reflect a moment on the life of this very bizarre and confused old man. [...]

5 Signs That Woody Allen Was Always A Deviant

in Celebs, Entertainment, News | by | 06.03.14

Woody Allen, alleged real name Titus Passage, is not a nice man (it is alleged). He has filched his way to the pinnacle of a filmmaking, producing, acting, directing and c-a-s-t-i-n-g c-o-u-c-h career that many would envy. His films of course include some of the best known action-drama-adventure-weepies of our time. Blockbusters like Bend Hur, Spartickles, Titpanic, [...]

Happy New Year You Have Options

Fast on the heels of the ceremoniously well-endowed Christmas mirth, New Years often gets the shaft. Celebratory guzzling is the norm of course, along with comically-impossible resolutions, like tweet more or tweet less. Funnily enough, the New Year celebration is actually the oldest of all the holidays we know of. It was first observed around [...]

Long Live Divorce

in Opinion/Editorial | by | 19.11.13

On January 5, 1643, when the Massachusetts Bay Colony still heartily suckling from her bullying mother’s engorged breasts, a woman named Anne Clarke made history. She was by far the rightful party in the first recorded divorce in the New World. Of course, Anne’s decree absolute was preceded by a long and illustrious existence for [...]

Birth Of, Brief History, And Escape From The Zoo

in Opinion/Editorial | by | 18.09.13

In 1752, Maria Theresa Walburga Amalia Christina, the only female ruler of the Habsburg Monarchy, decided that her love for animals (possibly second only to Catherine the Great’s horse-lust) was too overwhelming to ignore. But, rather than hail a carriage with her jaw and visit them, the Holy Roman Empress preferred to bring the objects of [...]

Roger “Flip Flop” Garaudy: A Year Dead

in Opinion/Editorial | by | 04.09.13

Roger Garaudy died last year at the age of 98. This was possibly the first choice he made (if you can call it a choice) from which there was no return. Never a man to suffer from decidophobia, Garaudy’s life was full of flip-flops and backflips. If he had owned a proper leotard he could’ve [...]
