First Impressions of Miyazaki: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)

While watching Miyazaki's debut film, The Castle of Cagliostro, I became saddened knowing that my Miyazaki filmography binge is quickly coming to a close. Following the debut, I only have one more to watch: The Wind Rises, his final film. 

I've been (more or less) watching one Miyazaki film a week and covering it here on the blog. One by one, I've been dazzled and enchanted. My eyes have opened larger and my imagination is that much more vibrant...


Total Therapy Tomorrow (8/27) with Max and DJ Haram (@MAXcollective @djharam973)

Tomorrow is a night to remember. Mishka is yet again sponsoring the monthly Total Therapy event. It happens on the last Thursday of every month and this month is no different. Chicago's Berlin night club is holding down Total Therapy and it's wise to arrive early before the full-on mayhem ensues.

For tomorrow, the event boasts a guest performance from Max from RuPauls Drag Race Season 7. You can snag a taste of things to come in the...

Foreign Tongues and Exotic Soundscapes: Hafa by iZem

Because of the artwork, I was reminded of Shearwater's album,...


Turning into a Couch Potato with Bobby Raps and Corbin

Bobby Raps and Corbin (formerly known as Spooky Black) released an EP out of the blue. They named it Couch Potato and the aesthetic can only be described as “weird as fuck.” Never in a million years did it cross their minds that, “This EP is going to make us billions. It'll be Grammy award winning!”

Oh no, quite the contrary. Couch Potato is, if...


The 40-Year-Old Virgin was Released Ten Years Ago

The 40-Year-Old Virgin came out ten years ago. It was one of the first rated R movies I saw in theaters and I remember laughing my ass off. At a time when Dukes of Hazzard was getting ridiculed by Roger Ebert (RIP) for being a “lame-brained, outdated wheeze”, and when Deuce Bigalow was still trying to be a thing with the flop of a sequel, The 40-Year-Old Virgin was dominating the box office, raking in a massive $177 million on a $26...


Tuber StackUp: 22 Excruciating Examples of Filthy Frank

Ahh YouTube. Conjuring up everything wrong with mankind on a minutely basis. And so from the slop-filled buckets of disgusting human existence emerges Filthy Frank

I've experienced roughly the same amount of abusive shit that any unspecified percentage of this messed up world has, I'd be on the spectrum somewhere, for sure - but the shock of knowing something so absurd as Filthy Frank actually made my mind...
