Grammys 2019: Performances Ranked Worst To Best

2019 might be some kind of cosmic turning point in the history of the Grammys: The first show where the conversation was more about who didn’t perform than who did. Ariana Grande’s fuck-this-shit refusal to play ball with the notorious Grammy-production dumbfucks revealed just how completely this was a show in … More »

When Should A Manager Go With Their Gut?

Should we believe what our gut is telling us? Image Credit: Admirer21stCentury As managers, the one thing that we’d all like to be able to do is to use our manager skills to always make the right decision. Just imagine: you’d never again have to worry about being wrong! The problem is that none of us has gotten the required manager training or figured out how to make this happen. Since we’re not there yet, I’m pretty sure that most of us would just be happy if we could find a way to be rig...

Favourite Vegan Instant Pot Recipes

Hello there, did you just get an instant pot? Are you wondering what to do with it? I am here for you. Here are 10 of my favourite instant pot recipes. We have had an instant pot for a few years, and at first, I was totally scared of pressure cookers, but the instant pot made it easy and fun. Having one helped us make food that was deeply satisfying and flavourful with a quarter of the time or effort (or without much of the advanced planning required for using a slowcooker.) I’m especially keen ...

The 5 Best Rolling Stones Songs Of 2018

The Rolling Stones did not release any music in 2018. Their last album of original material, A Bigger Bang, came out way back in 2005.

9 Music Trends That Need To Die In 2019

In the age of social media fads develop before we’ve even had the chance to deliberate, as they're tweeted and retweeted ad infinitum.

The Best & Worst Covers Of 2018

I know this year's been kind of exhausting music-wise. It's been exhausting everything-wise, but stopping to think about how music felt just dredged up nothing but malaise: Post Malone going all Individual-1 about "fake news", grotesque Soundcloud rappers turning out to be all-problematic/no-faves, the final demise of anything resembling … More »

The 10 Best Jazz Albums Of 2018

Every Season of Gilmore Girls Ranked

Every season of Gilmore Girls ranked The glow and the charm of movies and television shows from the 2000s is hard to come by in today’s modern releases. Watching these titles now feels warm and lighthearted — almost like our mainstream, must-see entertainment wasn’t as serious and gritty as it is now. Luckily, these relics can still be found on DVD and streaming services. Gilmore Girls, perhaps one of the most delightful pieces of television from the 2000s, is no exception. Gilmore Girls fol...

Stop Scaring Your Boss with Blank Stares

I discovered something early on in my career—bosses are notorious for catching employees off-guard. They show up at unpredictable times and ask unexpected questions. I never knew what to say when they stopped by. It didn’t matter if they asked “How’s your day?” or “What’s the latest and greatest about our big project?” All they got from me were blank stares and bumbling responses. As much as I wanted to put my best foot forward, I ended up stuffing not one but both feet in my mouth around “highe...

10 best episodes of Nathan for You Nathan Fielder is a comedic genius. Combining elements of Jackass with elements of reality television with Fielder’s already established socially inept persona, Fielder managed to craft the funniest show on television: Nathan for You. Unfortunately, after four stupendous seasons, Fielder has decided to end the show. Over the course of 32 episodes, Fielder gave comedy fans more than they ever could’ve asked for — for that, we are all thankful. Claiming to ha...

30 Essential Noise Rock Tracks

Grind. Skronk. Pigfuck. Seemingly every word associated with noise rock sounds incredibly unflattering out of context, and even in context doesn't fare much better.

The Definitive Chronology of Twin Peaks

The Definitive Chronology of Twin Peaks After 2017’s revival of the classic 90s television series Twin Peaks, created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, some fans found themselves confused by the universe’s timeline — with multiple companion books, a prequel film, and 48 episodes of television, the chronological history of Twin Peaks spans from the Lewis and Clark expedition to the early 90s to the mid-2010s and back again. Some diehard fans of the series (and of Lynch) know that time isn’t alwa...

Google Assistant may get new dedicated ‘List and Notes’ web app

It looks like Google seems to be working on a new "List and Notes" web app that ties into the Google Assistant.

It features two tabs for “Lists” and “Notes,” as well as a bottom app bar. The multi-colored FAB a...
