Who Watches the Watchers?

YouTuber Review, YouTube, LP, PewDiePie

YouTuber Review covers LPers playing their favorite games

LP, or the ‘Let’s Play’ genre has made a full-scale assault on YouTube. Forget Beiber, forget Gaga, forget Grumpy Cat.

A world in which Beyonce demands wall to wall news coverage and Pews gets none, is a skewed world. Enter YouTuber Review. Read More »

Happy Capitalism Weekend

While the carnage of Black Friday is behind us, it’s not too late to gather around the warming glow of the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Cooker and give thanks for all the rival Target patrons we’ve drop-kicked, all the piece-of-crap iPhone 5S’s we’ve trashed, and planned obsolescence we’ve fueled. A Happy Cappy day to all.
