Good as it Ever was: A Birthday Interview with ICYTWAT

Let's get to know ICYTWAT, a talented 18-years-old (today is his birthday) producer and rapper based out of Chicago. When you hear a name like ICYTWAT, what comes to mind? I know that it is a rather off-setting name, but after a little more investagating, I quickly found out that the name was fitting for his sound. More then ever, we've been seeing the talent come up out of the Chicago area...


Are We Entering a New Age of Meta-Television?

The new David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour gives us a peek into the writer’s real-life relationship with television. Jason Segal’s performance depicts a man agonized by guilt over his own enjoyment. The film’s focus on shame sits well enough with Wallace’s legendary, notoriously difficult novel Infinite Jest, that large book that all your smart friends talk about but never read.

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...
