*This article is intended for those who have seen the first four series of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman in their entirety. However, I hope that the following can be enjoyed by those who have not seen the show and have no current desire to watch it.

The following musings WILL contain some thematic spoilers, but should not detract from your overall viewing pleasure. The purpose of this piece is to delve deeper into how Bojack came to be the most self-deprecating manic horse on television, followed of course by Sarah...

That's right ladies and gentlemen (or however you identify yourself as), Lampin' is back and  — excuse the cliché — better than ever. We know you missed our semi-monthly, lazily planned posts, but fear not, as we have returned from our brief hiatus and promise to make up for our time missed.


It's been exactly one year since our very first post, and we couldn't think of a better time to get started again. We have some new additions that we'd like to share with you: 

We are now on the Twitter j...

"And music still on MTV..."  - Bowling for Soup, 2004

The media giant MTV was spawned in 1981 as a medium to incorporate visual elements into the increasingly commercial and thus pervasive world of music and pop culture. Simple enough. Video jockeys would stream music videos 24/7 to give viewers a better understanding of their favorite artists’ perspective.

Foreword: For the first time in the Lampin' Blog' history, we have a guest post, coming by way of a man simply known as Cash Daddy. When he isn't pounding 40's or hustling out infield singles in slow pitch softball, Cash Daddy can be found in a gym knocking down corner threes like it's his job. In five years, you'll be glossing over his name in the movie credits. In ten, he'll be one of the first names you'll see roll, yet probably won't remember unless you're someone who respects the finer aspects of cinema....

The Lampin' Blog brings you a new series entitled #GrindsMyGears, in which we rant about shit that bothers us. Nev starts us off with his love/hate relationship with ubiquitous social media stalwart, Snapchat. Enjoy. 

Snapchat is a beautifully simple and innovative, yet socially corrosive application. Allow me to provide an example to back up my somewhat controversial statement. The scene is set on October 11, 2011 in beautiful Danville, California. It’s Friday at lunch at my old stomping grounds, Monte Vista Hi...

If you are under 25 years old, there is a 99% chance that at some point, you’ve heard someone use strange terms such as “bomb ass dank ass” or “purp skurp” in a slurred, stony inflection. The voice is most commonly used by white males aged 18-20 who have smoked marijuana between 2-5 times in their life. While often executed poorly and with bad timing, this satirical stoner character is the brainchild of one of the greatest comedic minds of our time, Kyle Mooney.

While still not a proper household name, Kyle is o...
