Golden Corral Should Consider Doing Dinner for Breakfast

Golden Corral is doing it all wrong with this breakfast for dinner promotion. Sure, crushing a skyscraper of syrup-logged flapjacks and a pot of diesel strength coffee before bed sounds pretty good, but there has to be something more to this humble life we lead. A promotion that transcends run-of-the-mill gluttony and miserliness. The promotion we needed, not the promotion we deserved. Something that affirms self-worth. Something that reminds us we’re not alone. Something...

Going on a Hiatus with Swill the Will

Chicago artist Swill the Will released a three song EP called Hiatus and I'm still trying to figure it out.

Clocking in at under twelve minutes, it's apparent that it's short at sweet. That being said, the final track “Friend (Enemy)” extends beyond the six minute mark, taking up half of the EP's time. And it is the final song that really allows Swill the Will to shine. It's his most energetic vocally, and...

Seeing BankRollTony and Camino Kent in San Antonio

The other night, I went to a rap show in San Antonio without knowing anybody on the flyer. I saw the flyer on Twitter, watched a music video for one of the artists, and it looked like some trap shit so I figured it would be good.

I pulled up around 11:00 PM and the show hadn't started yet, just a handful of people were standing around outside. Inside, a DJ was playing "Hotline Bling" to no one inside except me. Eventually, the DJ got mad...

Rebirth of the Turn Up: An Audio Interview with DJ Whoo Kid

Just like that, we’re back again to bring the Мишка family another exclusive interview. This week, we spoke with New York City’s own and world renowed DJ Whoo Kid. For many of us who grew up during the come up of 50 Cent, it was almost impossible to hear a 50 Cent/G-Unit mixtape without hearing Whoo Kid's name throughout. And it didn’t stop at 50 Cent; Whoo Kid continued to ...

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...
