Larry Cohen is a very underrated screenwriter and director. He is described by many as a “B-Movie auteur” and although I agree with the “auteur” part, his films for me are much better than typical B-Movies, both in terms of plot and direction. Cohen’s films are usually unfairly […]

Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
James D’Arcy is a very underexposed and underrated actor. His roles which are usually small or sometimes in unsuccessful films have kept this very talented actor from becoming a household name. It’s a strange situation that just because someone’s films are either commercial failures (Jupiter Ascending), poorly directed […]
Vince Staples’ second studio album Big Fish Theory is out and depending on your expectations, this LP can either sound brilliant or bog-standard but for me it’s somewhere in-between. This is an album that on the first listen can sound very impressive, especially after hearing so much trash […]
Noreaga (now known as N.O.R.E.) from LeFrak City and Capone from Queensbridge formed the Hip-Hop duo Capone-N-Noreaga (sometimes shortened to C-N-N or C.N.N.). The pair released their début album The War Report in 1997 and it was a refreshing listen during a time filled with Pop music sampling […]
Derelect Camp (spelled with a “e” instead of an “i”) was a Hip-Hop collective from Queens, New York who made some noise in the underground during the mid-nineties. Unfortunately, like many other talented groups from that time, they dropped a few impressive singles but no album. At a […]
Now Born Click were an underground Hip-Hop group from New Brighton, Staten Island who had a short-lived career during the mid-nineties. Information about them is scarce since the group only released a handful of singles between 1993 to 1995 and publications were very scant when it came to […]
‘The World Is Mind’ is the latest album by KRS-One after 2015’s ‘Now Hear This‘. This, his thirteenth studio album which dropped on May 9th doesn’t disappoint, in fact after listening to it I can say that Kris Parker keeps going from strength to strength. It’s great to […]
In 1994, Jeru The Damaja released his début album ‘The Sun Rises In The East’ produced entirely by Gang Starr’s DJ Premier. Jeru’s monotone voice accompanied by his naturalistic, slow flow (which paused mid-sentence) was his trademark style. When he declared that “[I] got a freaky, freaky, freaky […]
From the drawn, comic book, Doctor-Strange-esque cover to the title ‘Renaissance’, The Underachievers’ latest album is a mish-mash of ideas that don’t quite gel together. This, the duo’s third studio album unfortunately doesn’t fully satisfy the senses; in terms of concept, lyrics, or production. For both the ears […]
‘The President Show’ is a new satirical comedy show created by and starring Anthony Atamanuik lampooning the current President Of The United States Donald Trump. Taking the form of a late night chat show presented by the 45th President himself, Atamanuik does a fantastic impression of Trump, whom […]
SPOILERS AHEAD God Told Me To is a low-budget horror thriller from 1976, written, produced, and directed by Larry Cohen. The film opens with the sound of a choir and the Gregorian vocals along with an organ makes for a dark and ominous mood. There’s low camera angles […]
Q (also known as Q: The Winged Serpent) is a very underrated and underexposed horror movie. Written, produced, and directed by Larry Cohen, the film is an entertaining blend of action, thrills, and old-school horror. This is a “Creature Feature” with a lot more bite. SPOILERS AHEAD The […]
The Stuff is a 1985 science-fiction-horror-comedy written, directed, and executively produced by Larry Cohen. If you’ve never seen this film, I can only describe it as an 80s update of a 50s sci-fi B-Movie. It’s a mixture of The Blob and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers and although […]
