Arnel Pineda was trying to make a career out of fronting bar bands, singing Journey cover songs in his native Philippines.

Bob Saget: That’s What I’m Talkin’ About (2013)

Veteran actor/comedian Bob Saget takes to the stage to unleash his special brand of comedy on an unsuspecting audience of twenty-somethings, who know him better as Danny Tanner. Saget banters snappily with his audience, never missing a beat. He shares some terrible stories that will probably ruin Full House for you. But the highlight of the special comes when he picks up his acoustic guitar and proceeds with his musical expressions. In this, Saget is like your favorite, foul-mouthed Uncle. 5 out of 5.

Whisker Wars: Season 2 (2012)

This reality show brings viewers the pageantry and skill of competitive bearding. That’s right – it’s a beauty pageant full of burly, manly men. The show focuses on a group of men competing against one another for the Best Beard in America – or Gnarliest, as is the case in Austin, Texas. With multiple categories for every size and style of whisker, the show aptly reflects the growing popularity of facial hair. For added drama, we see the return of the arrogant Jack Passion, whose giant red beard makes quite an upset this season. 4 out of 5.

An Honest Immaculate Review

Immaculate, starring Sydney Sweeney (she/her) and directed by Michael Mohan (he/him), was a good movie. That being said, it did not blow my mind. The plot was predictable and the messaging was heavy-handed. However, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it will become the next cult classic, but it is worth the watch. MINOR SPOILERS […]

JoJo See-Ya Later

It is impossible to describe all of JoJo Siwa’s (she/her) controversies in one article, so to make a long story short, I am very tired of seeing her name in YouTube thumbnails and TikTok captions. While I will not deny that she has done a lot of good with her platform, such as speaking out […]
