Excuse me, do you have a moment to talk about Jesus Christ?

It has been a long time since I stepped inside of a church, and what worried me most today was that I would spontaneously combust upon entering the building, the rays of sunlight filtered through the image of Christ piercing me like arrows, old ladies scooping holy water on me only for it to incite the flames, my… » 11/17/14 7:04pm 11/17/14 7:04pm

A review of Broke With Expensive Taste by Azealia Banks.

Azealia Banks' new album, Broke With Expensive Taste, which I have not purchased, is not listed on her Billboard.com chart history (eta: is now at № 30) and currently stands № 39 on Amazon.com, ahead of 'Miranda Lambert' and behind 'Metallica'.

You are no longer free to move about the country.

Another micro-revision has introduced notifications for when people unfollow you on Kinja. I've never been one to use the 'Private View' feature (for one thing, I can never remember it's there), but it's a pleasant formality that also puts checkmarks on comments by people you follow, a quick way to separating the… » 5/30/14 8:33pm 5/30/14 8:33pm

9 Most Redonkdonk Quotes From The New Yorker's Soylent Article.

It is well-known that well-meaning youth have a propensity to find answers for problems that didn't exist. Bastards like Einstein devising the theory of relativity when we were cool with classical mechanics, thanks, or Prince Joffrey simply being, because life wasn't hard enough already. » 5/10/14 6:41am 5/10/14 6:41am
