Black Museum is Scarier Than Anything Coming Out in 2018

The first month of the year is often met with optimism– we are certain of all the good things coming our way in the next 52 weeks. Prosperity, new beginnings and– of course– new media. I hate to put an end to that optimism, but there is a glaring issue in the upcoming year I…

Revenge Porn and Rob Kardashian

A site my friends and I loved at the time…

Who’s Worse?

Hatfields and McCoys. Capulets and Montagues. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Throughout history, our society has held dear a good feud. A classic catfight usually consists of two parties, each at odds over words, actions and, more often than not, hearsay.
