October 6, 2013


A minor, but interesting defection from the Hollywood Idiot camp is calling attention to the daily accretion of additional layers of tarnish on the state formerly known as Golden.  Actor and Comedian Rob Schneider, known for his warped characterizations on Saturday Night Live and in movies like ‘Deuce Bigelow, American Gigolo’, has declared that he’s […]

Please Don’t Feed the Beast!

February 7, 2013
