I’ve got a new piece over at Huffington Post in response to the Pope’s latest ungodliness. Here’s a taste:
Perhaps responding to criticism that he’s out of step with the times, Benedict extended his invitation to the rap community using language that is most commonly associated with hip hop lyrics.
“Rappers can be assured that I won’t be hatin’ if they rhyme about ho’s and queers. I won’t be getting up on their dick, no homo,” said Benedict.
Read it all.
And now we can all feel a little less embarrassed to be living in America:
On a more serious note, let’s use our collective eyeballs and find this dirty sum’bitch who’s out there assaulting women. It happened near Diamond Street and Nassau Avenue around 4:30am, and the perp is in his late
30’s 20’s and about 5 foot 9 inches tall. From 1010Wins:
Police were searching for a suspect Thursday wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a 25-year-old Greenpoint woman who was attacked as she entered her apartment building earlier this week.

In the beginning, there was just Phoenix’s official Lisztomania video. Shortly thereafter, someone decided the song sounded like the soundtrack to every 80’s teenage angst-y movie ever made, and the brat pack mash up tribute was born. Then, some cute Brooklynites had too much time on their hands and a nice roof at their disposal, and the Brooklyn Brat pack tribute to a tribute was created. Now, some even cuter kiddos in the Phillipines made a tribute to the Brooklyn tribute.
Where will this Lisztomania tribute video arms race end?
With CMJ comes an influx of young, wide-eyed musicians getting their first taste of big city rock n’ roll, so it’s only natural that they show up expecting bushels of sex and drugs too. But naturally, we live in an age of Craigslist personals, so some are skipping the effort and hunting digitally.
Like this 26-year old “sexy rocker boy on tour from Chicago,” who’s here on tour for CMJ. He wants “an attractive, clean, std free woman” to maybe keep him company at the Newark Holiday Inn.
Then there’s this guy, who is “looking for cute hipster girls with whom to share my soul, or my CMJ PASS!!!!!!!!” What’s it worth to you, cute hipster girls?
Or how about the guy recording PureVolume’s showcase at Collective Hardware? He’s looking for someone to “have a cozy time with.”
And finally, do you need a place to sleep? Are you willing to exchange your company, “perhaps more” for it?
Craigslist is ripe with horny CMJ bros today.
