Carolina Panthers (17-1) -6* at Denver Broncos (14-4)  (45)

Super Bowl 50 is finally here, and this upcoming Sunday we will all indulge in the greatest American past-time that can take place from a couch and doesn’t involve FaceTime and naked Asian teenagers. It’s been a long year for the NFL which included a franchise relocation, a full-length movie about concussions starring Will Smith which was so awful you literally wanted to beat your own brains in, and as far as the action on the field was concerned, we were treated to a play-off bloodbath which has left us with the last two teams standing.

Every year about this time, it is tradition here at Dubsism and First Order Historians to write a piece trashing the Super Bowl contestants. The reason why we do this is actually rather simple:  The Super Bowl is the biggest sports event in America, and as such, it draws in all the casual fans who don’t pay attention to football until now.  That means those of who watch all the sports we can need to provide crucial information the newly-arriving fan may not know.

Thirty years ago, a young Tommy Victor was a sound engineer at the legendary CBGB’s rock club in Manhattan’s East Village. It was there that he met the club’s doorman Mike Kirkland, who also played bass. After jamming with ex-Swans drummer Ted Parsons, the trio forged the pathway for what would come to be one of the most consistent bands in the history of American heavy metal and Prong was born. February 2016 saw the release of the band’s tenth full-length album “X-No Absolutes”, a blistering assault of metal chock full of the brutality and precision we’ve come to know from the band over the years. We are raising horns high in the air today at FOH, because our guest in ten questions is the one and only Tommy Victor of Prong. Continue reading

7 Questions with Jena Kingsley

Jones

by Ryan Meehan

Jena Kingsley was born and raised in New York City. She attributes everything she knows about comedy to a loving yet dysfunctional family. Her name is pronounced Jena, like Jameson, but only one N. Her parents spelled it wrong. Most recently Jena has made her mark internationally with her pranks on unsuspecting New Yorkers. The media has called her pranks “Genius” and “Brilliant.” Perez Hilton called her “one bold and funny lady.” She released three viral prank videos in a row (“Are You On The List”, a Starbucks Prank where she posed as a Starbucks Bouncer, and “No Selfie Zone”, where she set up no selfie zones in NYC subject to fine, and “Social Media in Real Life” where she tries out the things we do on social media on unsuspecting New Yorkers) both garnering major international media attention landing her on CNN, TIME, MTV, ABC, The Today Show, USA Today, AdWeek, Perez Hilton and more.  In sixth grade she won an award for writing excellence, which of course means nothing now. She is the writer/creator of the popular blog “Darcy Dates” and she also blogs for the Huffington Post. She is a regular guest of “Huffington Post Live” and Sirius XM. She has written for The New York Observer, New York Post, XOJane, HowAboutWe, BeautyBlitz.com and others.  She made her television debut appearance doing stand up in 2015 on “Live From Gotham” on AXS-TV. Her stand up appearances include The Stand, Gotham Comedy Club, Levity Live, Caroline’s Comedy Club, Governors, Stand Up New York and others. She also recently appeared at The New York Comedy Festival, and she’s my guest today in 7 questions. Continue reading
