Just Calm the F*** Down, Michael Bay.

So I saw Star Trek this past weekend (legit and awesome). But before I was able to enjoy that impressively well-executed piece of cinema, I was subjected to two incredibly annoying trailers. The first one was for G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. Okay. How

Real Time Throw Down…

Last week’s airing of Real Time with Bill Maher brought together the passionate, yet varied minds of Salman Rushdie, Mos Def, and Christopher Hitchens. Things seemed mellow enough for a while. There was some back and forth on Obama’s decisions regarding Afghanistan and -to Bill’s
