Matthew Good, musician and self-proclaimed “nothingist,” has a unique disdain for nearly everything, which is why we like him. He provides an often silenced voice and zeal that is too hard to find today.

Guest Blogging on Pop Candy
Melissa submitted a piece & heard nothing. Looking through the series to learn how to pitch better(?) ideas.

Guest Blogger: Mapping Out a Dream Season of SNL

Guest Blogger:  I Teach the Simpsons to College Students — and Here’s my Syllabus

A refresher on how to write the verdict. It’s true, We re-read our old articles.

Improbable Island
Welcome to Improbable Island, where you start off wandering through the woods naked, and wind fighting a war against a machine capable of literally anything. Stop crying. You’re only attracting the monsters.

The Best Video Game Voice Actors
Probably the most awesome job. Ever. How do we sign up?

If ‘The Expendables’ Were Women
We’d sign up to see this female summer blockbuster faster than you can say Sex in the City 3. Creative work, Team Screenrant!

As if we haven’t loved on Alec Brownstein enough, he now impresses us with an iPhone app that warns us when texting our exes is a bad idea.
