Milo Yiannopoulos On Pedophilia And 'This Arbitrary And Oppressive Idea Of Consent'
Huffington Post - 5 days
Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos says sex between adult men and 13 year-old boys is OK as long as the boy’s sexual organs are “mature.” He would also like to thank a certain Catholic priest for teaching him to “give such good head” when Yiannopoulos was a child. All documented on a new video from the Drunken Peasants podcast, which has left American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp in a, shall we say, touchy position. Schlapp has booked Yiannopoulos to speak at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference, better know as CPAC. Yiannopoulos got higher billing, and more speaking time, than Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and media personalities Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs. Schlapp was getting criticism for the invitation even before the Milo pedophilia video emerged. On Sunday he responded, “We think free speech includes hearing Milo’s important perspective. # ...

Easily-Triggered, Privileged People Have Turned Society Into Their Own Giant Safe Space
Huffington Post - 23 days
This piece by Na’amen Gobert Tilahun originally appeared on The Establishment, an independent multimedia site run by women. “Are you triggered?” white men sneer from every corner of Facebook, when confronted with political outrage or even mild disagreement. “Do you need to go to your safe space?” Rhetoric about “trigger warnings,” alerts to traumatized people that a book or film or article might exacerbate PTSD, has been twisted into a snide way of mocking people, a coded insult meant to imply someone is spoiled or coddled. Celebrities of all levels have commented: Neil Gaiman named a short story collection Trigger Warning as self-congratulation for its disturbing contents. Joe Rogan’s new Netflix comedy special is named Triggered, and Rogan said in an interview with Maxim that talking about triggers was the “anthem of the oversensitive crowd.” In the intro to her new book Buffered, YouTube personality Hannah Hart makes a specific point of saying there will be no trigger warnings be ...

Podcast Reviews: <i>JakeThis</i> & <i>Shut Up, Leonard</i>
Huffington Post - about 1 year
If it's generally a given that comedians make for the best comedy podcasters, then Jake Johannsen is a fine specimen of that subset. It's not important that not all of his guests on JakeThis of Jake Johannsen are comedians, nor even in show business. And the subject matter isn't always light and/or funny. But with a deft touch and a few well-placed humor nuggets strewn throughout the conversation, one comes away from his podcast thinking, "That was damned entertaining!" His latest guest is Dr. Christopher Ryan, PhD, co-author of Sex At Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What it Means for Modern Relationships. He's also the host of his own podcast, Tangentially Speaking. (In fact, this is essentially a dual review because the same conversation appeared a week ago on Ryan's show, even though it was recorded in Johannsen's podcast "lair".) The subjects are far-ranging, starting with musing over the effects, both rumored and true, of ayahuasca, the hallucinogen of choice of South Am ...

Scientists Are Seriously Worried About Whale Poop, And Here's Why
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Whale poop is pretty powerful stuff -- and no, not in terms of its stench. Scientists have long known that whale waste has the power to influence Earth's ecosystems. Vital nutrients found within the prodigious poop often end up traveling from the deep ocean to land, helping to fertilize our planet. Now, a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday details exactly how this compelling cycle of nutrients works and how the cycle has slowed due to declines in populations of whales and other species. "In recent years, there have been a number of studies examining the transport of nutrients by large animals within oceans, across river systems, and over the land," Dr. Joe Roman, a biologist at the University of Vermont and a co-author of the study, said in an email. "To my knowledge, this is the first study that looks at this pattern across the globe, and over time. We have a new understanding of the role of animals in enhancing and maintain ...

Sensory Deprivation Tanks: No Sight, No Sound, No Thank You
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Los Angeles seems to be the testing grounds for the latest snake oil diets, weird versions of yoga, and other whacky mind and body improvement methods. I'm an L.A. transplant from Indiana, so even the most mainstream of mind exercises, like meditation, feels a little too hippy for me. However, many of these hippy methods have now been rebranded with a badass buzzword -- biohacking -- and all of the sudden, I have become a willing guinea pig for L.A.'s weirdest biohacks. Is it because I'm the type of guy who would never touch something called Patagonian toothfish, but now happily devour it as Chilean sea bass? Or is it because I'm a sucker for any cheap Instagram likes? In the words of Sterling Archer, it's probably "a little column A and a little column B." One mind-body experience with an irresistible name for me, a self-proclaimed sci-fi geek, is the sensory deprivation tank. All I knew of sensory deprivation tanks, or isolation tanks, was that biohacking enthusiasts like Joe ...

Ronda Rousey Says She Could Beat '100 Percent' Of Men In Her Weight Class
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
UFC women’s bantamweight champion and all-around American badass Ronda Rousey said on ESPN’s Sportscenter Thursday that she believes she could beat “100 percent” of the UFC male fighters in her weight class. “UFC announcer Joe Rogan has stated that he thinks you might be able to beat 50 percent of UFC male bantamweight fighters,” Sportscenter anchor Matt Barrie said. “So now this debate has started. Ronda, what do you think of about Rogan’s comment?” "I never say that I'm incapable of beating anybody, because I don't believe in putting limits on myself," Rousey replied. "So I mean, I would have to say if you're just talking about what's in the realm of possibility of what's possible of who I could beat, well, I could beat 100 percent of them. But, um, you can't tell me that there's a zero percent chance that I can beat anyone on the planet, so I'm never gonna say that." The exchange starts around 2:55 Rousey was the star of the American sports scene last Saturday night wh ...

St Pierre Retains Title at UFC 167, Future Uncertain for Champ
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
It had all the makings of a fairytale ending to one of the most storied careers in UFC history; welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre would defend his belt for the ninth time at UFC 167 to become the promotion's all-time winningest fighter, and walk away from the octagon after nearly a decade. But even before St-Pierre took the microphone from commentator Joe Rogan during a post-fight interview, the perfect scenario to retire at the height of his success had already passed, as the validity of his split-decision win over Johny Hendricks was immediately questioned. Still, the champion addressed the MGM Grand Garden Arena crowd amid a deafening mixture of boos and cheers. "I have a bunch of stuff in my life happening, I need to hang up my gloves for a little bit," stated St-Pierre. "I have to go away for a little bit at least ... I have to step away for a bit, and that's all I can say right now." Refusing to call it a retirement, St-Pierre created an instant shockwave of speculatio ...

UFC 167 Recap: Was George St-Pierre's 'Retirement' Staged?
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
UFC 167 aired live last night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The night marked the 20th anniversary of the first UFC event on November 13, 1993. I remember watching that tournament (and the next five or so) with my dad in our living room. I was 13 years old at the time, and in the 8th grade. It was amazing to see Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, and all the original fighters match their skills against each other in a mixed martial arts tournament. Watching UFC 167 last night with Joon and the roommates, we reminisced about the evolution of the sport, its current state, and the future. The Undercard Fights I didn't bother with the Fox 1 prelims -- I only jumped in to watch the main card. The round of the night easily goes to Josh Koscheck's humiliating loss to Tyrone Woodley in the first round. Koscheck (who, himself is a great boxer and wrestler) was getting rocked early on. He kept going in and backing out. The first time he did it, Woodley connected with a right hook and cut open Kosch ...

How Campbell McLaren Spun UFC Into the American Cultural Milieu
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
In the 20 years since its inception, the UFC has transformed from a cage-fighting spectacle into one the most lucrative sports franchises in the world. But long before the world embraced the UFC, Semaphore Entertainment Group (SEG) Executive Producer Campbell McLaren thrust mixed martial arts into the American media spotlight, launching the Ultimate Fighting Championship amid a campaign of controversy. With only six months to create, develop, brand, and promote the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship, held on November 12, 1993 at Denver's McNichols Arena, McLaren and SEG went on the media offensive, borrowing from acclaimed media philosopher Marshall McLuhan, who famously coined the phrase "the medium is the message." For McLaren, the medium of controversy was the perfect vessel for his message of no-holds-barred pugilism, and soon slogans and taglines like 'banned in 49 states' and 'there are no rules' captured the nation's attention. "There were no rules for the marketing of ...

Sadaf Fahim: The Youtube Sensation Who Stole From Patrice O'Neal
Huffington Post - over 3 years
There have been a few joke-stealing scandals in recent years: Carlos Mencia stealing from Joe Rogan, Jay Mohr from Rick Shapiro, the lesser-known (though no less egregious) instance of Denis Leary stealing from Louis C.K. And now, Kain Carter stealing from Patrice O'Neal, less than two years after Patrice's untimely death at age 41. Patrice's own comment on the Opie &amp; Anthony radio show makes the first salient point: Could you please stop saying 'jokes'? Back in the day when people stole jokes, it was: 'two Jews walk into a bar...' Carlos [Mencia] is taking your life's analogies, man. In the context of modern standup, a good comic's material comes out of their life experience and represents their analysis of the world. Stealing it means stealing their thoughts, their voice. What theft is more serious than that? It also takes many years to find the right expression for those thoughts and someone who steals is skipping all that hard work, the years of trying an ...

Hulk Hogan Sounds Off On Transgender MMA Fighter Controversy
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Hulk Hogan has sounded off on the recent controversy surrounding mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Fallon Fox, who came out as transgender earlier this month. The wrestler, actor and TV personality told TMZ he'd be willing to fight Fox. "I'll whip her...I mean, I'll whip him," Hogan said. "I'll whip her...I'm confused." As Sports Illustrated points out, Fox is currently scheduled to fight again for the Championship Fighting Alliance 10 in Coral Gables, Fla. on April 20, but as of March 6, her license approval came under investigation with Florida's Dept. of Business and Professional Regulation after she came out as transgender. Among those to condemn Fox was UFC commentator Joe Rogan. "I say if you had a d*ck at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d*ck," Rogan said, according to SB Nation. "You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f**king man." Fox had expressed some reservations about coming o ...

Alf LaMont: A Degree in Stand Up: Coming to a College Near You
Huffington Post - about 4 years
I remember sitting in my office in 2010 and reading Doug Stanhope's evisceration of stand-up comedy classes. I remember it very clearly, in fact, because at the time I was deep into strategizing how a "traditional" comedy club could become the next Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater. UCB was at the time, the dominant force in L.A. comedy, producing some of the most innovative shows, with some of the hottest talent and charging next to nothing, while raking in the cash,with their much sought-after improv classes. At least that's what I assumed at the time. I can't say for sure that UCB is rolling in cash and that they should pay their comics. I had thought at the time, that offering stand-up classes akin to their improv classes would be a great source of extra income and it would finally legitimize the game that comedy clubs have been playing with their employees where stage time and "access" are seen as "extras" to make up for sub par wages. "A class costs this much, so ...
