Ain't got a thing if ya ain't got that swing

The Finns apparently still have a thing or two to learn about anti-rape videos. Here’s the latest Taki’s Mag piece from David Cole Stein to tell you more [TRIGGER-WARNING: For those with an aversion to male cheerleaders not named George W. Bush, the video parody Dave and I produced referenced within].

Is that code for something?

Burn, Hollywood, Burn

In the wake of Ms. Knowles’ halftime, er, extras yesterday, figured I’d share an interesting incident on the LA “subway” (quotation marks in deference to my Long Island wife, who mockingly chuckles whenever hearing “subway” outside the context of NYC’s) this past Friday, an experience which still leaves me shaking my head at how […]

Past, Imperfect

I know I’ve shared the story of Arthur Jacobs’ tale being made into a film via crowdfunding in a couple Open Threads, but now that it’s the subject of a Taki’s Page column, a little more depth to Mr. Jacobs’ experiences. Also, in light of recent campaign trail comments on the deportations of US […]
