The 27 Best Boy Band B-sidez (LISTICLE)

I frosted my tips, rhinestone’d my tees, and got legitimately upset when the popular vote of TRL got the number one spot wrong by giving a NuMetal act the top prize–cue that blockhead Carson Daly quipping about doing it all for the Nookie.  I used to be boy band as fuck–thanks to my high schoolContinue reading “The 27 Best Boy Band B-sidez (LISTICLE)”

Nashville’s Nashies’ Wish List For Season 3

I grew up in Chicago’s West Rogers Park neighborhood, which is predominately an Assyrian, Indian, and Jewish hood, so I didn’t grow up hearing a lot of Waylon, Patsy, or Chris Gains’ alter-ego–Garth Brooks.  Thanks to Hulu and a realization that I need to stop re-watching The Wire, I fell in love with ABC’s Nashville. JustContinue reading “Nashville’s Nashies’ Wish List For Season 3”

VH1’s LeAnn Rimes Cibrian Clickbait, only on DonnyRodriguez.com!

Veggie Burgers:Russian Roulette Where Every Chamber IS Loaded

Bing defines a veggie burger as a hamburger-style patty that contains no animal flesh. And that’s it. So if you want to make your own, one must only adhere to that rudimentry principal. Aside from that take all of the liberties and run fucking wild.  No one can call you on your shit. Faux BurgersContinue reading “Veggie Burgers:Russian Roulette Where Every Chamber IS Loaded”

My First Last Ditch Effort

In some junior high class–which had nary a thing to do with the Three R’s, during a grade where pre-teen boys wore basketball shorts during all of the temperatures–we hand-made dreamcatchers.  My school wasn’t on a reservation, nor was it an artsy institution, it was just in a dull “let’s raise future adults who hide theirContinue reading “My First Last Ditch Effort”
