The Rapture of Music: (C)rap Music

The Rapture of Music: (C)rap Music

August 23, 2019

Rap? More like crap. I can’t stand all of these new-age mumble (c)rappers. It all sounds the same. Why can’t we go back to the age when Pink Floyd made “Dark Side of the Moon” or when Weezer made “The Teal Album” or when Queen made that one groundbreaking album? (I can’t remember the name of it because my music taste is too diverse, despite my young age.) In fact, I think we should kick...

A single man’s Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2019

February 14th. For some reason, this day is held in such high regard to the saps of the world. Sure, there is something to be said about happiness, but the deliberate spending of large sums of money on material goods for the enjoyment of another human being that you consider to be ‘yours’ is just out right ridiculous. In fact, the idea of saying “be mine” on Valentine’s Day is both hi...

TikTok breaks the charts

December 10, 2018

TikTok is a short video sharing app that flew to the top of the charts on the app store. Being the most downloaded app, sitting at around 45 million downloads and with more than 100 million monthly active users around the world, it has garnered a lot of attention.
