I'm going to come right out and say it: Nirvana's Nevermind is the most overrated album released in my lifetime. Cry all you want to the contrary, but it just makes you sound like an even bigger fool. On the 20th anniversary of its release,…

Let's be honest: People are idiots in the face anything Mother Nature throws at them. And the people of the DC area are bigger idiots than most when it comes to the subject. Forget snow, we can't even handle the rain. Seriously,…

Those that listen to my show know that the pomposity of celebrities is a favorite target on mine. Yes, I understand that greedy, morally-bankrupt pillars of industry are the real villains, and some twat prattling on about how yogarobics gave her the be...…

Even though every minute I look at it withers the already-infinitesimal odds I ever enter into a normal relationship…I enjoy me some porn. Which would have been an edgy admission 40 years ago when that meant going to a theater and blowing a furtive …

play
0000-00-00 :: Papa's Basement Length: 1s
I have to admit, I’m not the most politically aware guy. I find sports and entertainment news far more interesting, and what political information I do encounter is usually fed to me secondhand by Opie & Anthony or stumbled upon as I wake up on…

0000-00-00 :: Papa's Basement Length: 54s
So you’re taking a jab at a beloved American icon and the title is a reference to an obscure horror film you and three other people have seen. Way to win over an audience, Papageorgiou. The gang and I discuss the (possibly overhyped) legacy of Steve…

Given my personality, it was only a matter of time before I scared away the rest of the Papa’s Basement crew and was forced to do a show alone. The experience, albeit somewhat rocky, left me with a newfound appreciation for guys like Bill Rohland, G…

0000-00-00 :: Papa's Basement Length: 57s
Things start with me screaming ’til I lose my voice about the disrespectful c-u-next-Tuesday I had on my show two weeks ago. My bile sufficiently vented, I turn my attention to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and ask my co-hostess what the Hell wom…

99 times out of 100, a celebrity dies and I could care less. So why do I find the death of Patrice O’Neal, the most brilliant comedic mind of our generation, so damn depressing? Listen to find out and mourn the passing of a comedy god. (What a way t…
