Art: Four Bricks and Stick

November 19, 2013 // 0 Comments

For the uninitiated reader, the following review techniques might seem a tad over-zealous. Thus, let me forestall any confusion: I, Mona St. Westberg, Reviews of the Month art critic, eat every work of art I review. Why, you might ask? Because art [...]

Halloween Candy!

October 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

Awww, yeah ladies! You know what time it is? It’s Chris Derricks-thirty! That’s right! I’m straight back from my house arrest, and ready to slip my turgid review right into your quivering mind-flesh! It’s Halloween, yo! Or, as I like to call [...]

Bad Axe

October 22, 2013 // 3 Comments

Like any civilized person in 21st century America, I have no use for a fireplace. I push a button on the wall and my house gets warm. Bam, technology. No sweeping the chimney, no cleaning up ash, and certainly no splitting of firewood. Yes, I was [...]

Choose Your Own Life

June 4, 2013 // 2 Comments

Choose-your-own-adventure books are not exactly the cornerstone of the literary industry. Despite seeing a modicum of success in the children’s market of decades past, the genre is well beyond its prime. However, author Frederick Respin is looking [...]

Dysentery Arises

May 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

Way back in 1981, when progressive rock titans Dysentery Arises announced they had a vision for a career-spanning nine-album conceptual rock opera, there were few who thought they could actually pull it off. But here they are with Breath of a Fire [...]

Website: My Racist Grandma

April 27, 2013 // 0 Comments

  There seems to have become a gold rush of sorts to mine the comedic wealth of the unsuspecting elderly. An Old Rush, if you will. The old axiom “kids say the darnedest things” has been flipped on its head as the younger generations now [...]

Art: Dark Lines Will Consume You

April 16, 2013 // 1 Comment

        Robert Haggis Ink & Photoshop on canvas (2013) Robert Haggis is one of the most outstanding artists of the decade. With each new work he further widens the boundary of what art can do. A young man at merely 26, Haggis [...]

Food: Mayonnaise On The Bottom Yogurt

April 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

‘Sup homies, Chris Derricks here. I’m laying low for the next couple weeks, mostly due to the house arrest (don’t ask). It’s not a big deal, I’ve got a big ass mansion that’s also probably technically a brothel, so I can [...]

Product: Ant Murder!

March 22, 2013 // 1 Comment

Spring is in the air! A joyous time that heralds the stirrings of warmth, the choirs of birds, and the blossoming of flowers. But as the world of beauty wrests itself from the cold grasp of winter, the skittering underbelly comes to life with it. [...]

Book: Life is Hard and I am Sad

March 5, 2013 // 2 Comments

Where once I could create an insightful and entertaining introduction paragraph, now that ability, along with what I assume are several other important cognitive functions, has been stripped from me after subjecting myself to Darryl Grey’s Life [...]

Music: Soft Drippings

January 30, 2013 // 0 Comments

New Age music has always been a focus of contention and ridicule. Highly respected (yet non-Reviews of the Month-employed) music critic James Wotherbee embodies that argument, vehemently opposing every iteration of the New Age genre. He has even [...]

Food: Monica’s Clam Loaf

December 8, 2012 // 0 Comments

Shit yeah, homos and heteros! Chris Derricks in the motherfucking house!! Been a while since I pumped a review into this frigid bitch. Let’s do this shit! Ladies, better buckle on a towel, because you’re about to dampen your redeeming [...]

Art: Grainy Concert Photos

October 5, 2012 // 0 Comments

  Andrew Worcestershire is not a professional concert photographer, at least not in the usual sense. Instead of standing out of the way and taking commissioned pictures with a fancy camera, Worcestershire prefers to be in the middle of the crowd [...]

Book: Cape & The Coopers

September 19, 2012 // 1 Comment

The Cape Buffalo is a notorious beast. It is responsible for the deaths of over two hundred people a year. It is often said to kill more humans than any other creature in Africa, including crocodiles and lions. This, along with its massive size, [...]

Website: Daily Life Tips

August 30, 2012 // 1 Comment

  Daily Life Tips is a website built on the cancerous lies the Illuminati dole out to the populace to seed the illusion that we have control over our own lives. Full disclaimer: I have been drinking quite heavily since early this [...]

Product: Acid For Cats!

August 21, 2012 // 1 Comment

The problem with cat treats as of late is a lack of imagination. All they consist of is just a variation of concentrated tuna or chicken flavorings. They really get old after a while, for the owner as well as the cat. So why not mix it up, you ask? [...]

What is Art? Can I Eat It?

July 24, 2012 // 1 Comment

  Hello fellow review lovers! My name is Mona St. Westberg and I am proud to say that I am Reviews of the Month’s new art critic. I accept this honor with a blend of humility and excitement. Going forward, I hope to take the same brilliant [...]

Music: Dickbeast

July 3, 2012 // 0 Comments

Death metal pioneers Dickbeast hit something of a dry spell four years ago. Their 2008 album Babies are for Juicing had proven a complete flop. In addition to that failure, they had just been stripped of creative control over their Broadway musical [...]

Book: Understanding Capitalism

June 26, 2012 // 1 Comment

The average person cannot help but hold pre-conceived notions, and the nature of Capitalism is a phenomenon that most people who have encountered it have fully formed opinions on. Admittedly, it took a good amount of time into the book for this [...]

Food: Seal Steak Central

June 20, 2012 // 2 Comments

Yo, bitches, I’m Chris Derricks! Respect! So The Double Thumb wanted to send me someplace fancy for my first food review with them and so I stood the hell up in that board meeting and demanded to review Seal Steak Central! They resisted at first, [...]

Webcomic: Stick & Stickina

June 12, 2012 // 0 Comments

    Falling nicely into place in the autobiographical comic movement, Jeffery Curtains (a pseudonym) has struck gold with Stick & Stickina. Despite being a “comic,” Stick & Stickina is quite dramatic and emotional, boldly [...]

Book: Lion Killer

June 6, 2012 // 2 Comments

The Vietnam War. Just the very mention of the name stirs up so much emotion. Countless books and movies have been made about one of the most controversial wars in American history, and yet still it remains a mystery of sorts. The soldiers, the [...]

Product: Mega Washer!

May 30, 2012 // 2 Comments

The Mega Washer did not catch my attention as I wandered through my local Sears because of its looks. Don’t get me wrong, it looks quite nice for a traditional washing machine. Sleek design with a smooth black finish, the Mega Washer does impress. [...]
