Drunk Movie Review: ‘Jurassic World’

My first DMR (Drunk Movie Review, of course) happened because I was too afraid of outer space to see Interstellar sober. My second one happened because Fifty Shades of Grey is fucking stupid. Jurassic World had the potential to be both stupid and scary, and so here we are. Also,… [Read More]

How to Cope When Your Celeb Crush Turns Problematic

If you know me, and you’re good at picking up on subtlety, you know that from time to time, I’ve expressed a totally casual, passing interest in Vince Vaughn.

Unpopular Opinion: HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Sucks

Brace yourselves. A rare and extremely vitriolic opinion is coming. I think—and have thought since its premiere in 2011—that HBO’s exceedingly popular and critically acclaimed show Game of Thrones is, in a word, shitty. I am (or at least have been made to feel) very much alone in this opinion…. [Read More]

Mad Men Probably Got Me Into Advertising

I started Mad Men in June of 2010. I forget who told me I needed to watch it, but I had the show marked on my must-watch list for some time. After finishing up my sophomore year of college, this would be the summer I caught up. I spent that… [Read More]

Will The Last Scene of ‘Mad Men’ Ruin Our Lives?

Don Draper doesn’t love me. I’ve foolishly become far too invested in every inch of his psyche, and in less than two weeks he’s going to kiss me and tell me to order myself some breakfast, and then walk out of my life forever. With the series finale approaching, I’ve… [Read More]

‘Silicon Valley’ Nailed the Setup, but Could Now Try Harder

HBO’s Silicon Valley, helmed by Alec Berg and Office Space creator Mike Judge, is in capable hands. But it’s also a show that at this point, is pretty clearly trying to have its cake and eat it too. By making fun of the typical gripes with the tech industry—it’s mostly white, women in power… [Read More]

What We Talk About When We Talk About Meta

In between the soul-crushing self-esteem issues (thanks, puberty) and growing out my hair, then cutting it off, then growing it out again, my memories of middle school are very few and extremely far between. It was a time full of discomfort, exhilaration, and weird body odors that I have deliberately… [Read More]

Jon Snow’s Snapchat Story: A Day at Castle Black

Life at Castle Black can be tough. It’s cold, management sucks, and the dating scene leaves a lot to be desired. But as with all thankless jobs, the people working there are really the unsung heroes of the realm. Without them, we’d all be lifeless zombies with blue Gatorade-colored eyes. So take… [Read More]
