Gut Check – 2015: The Year in Denial

If there’s one overarching theme you can stamp all over the ass of this exiting year, it’s denial. We saw experts denying political phenomena, politicians denying apocalyptic threats, activists denying facts (replaced by mob-approved figments), students denying their own adulthood, in favor of infantile regression. In sum, 2015 was a horrible year, mainly because we denied what was making it so horrible.

Gut Check: Twitter Beats Terror

If our lack of attention and ambivalence forbids us from obsessing over one horrific crime for at least 48 hours, how can we actually convince a country to fight an existential threat responsible for that horrific crime?

Gut Check: The Pleasures of P.J.

As you read this, I will be on a bus somewhere between PA and Ohio hawking a book. I can’t use the bus toilet (we aren’t allowed), which pretty much negates the principle of a bus toilet. Instead we use the Cracker Barrel Restroom, which happens to be the name of my next metal band.

Gut Check: The Jim Gaffigan Show — A Puffy James Dean

Since, like most people these days, I only watch a show in one multi-hour clump of multiple episodes, head resting on a folded pillow, eating dark chocolate almonds under the false assumption they’re healthier (the almonds fill up space where the chocolate is, I tell my wife), I finally caught up with the entire season of the Jim Gaffigan Show.

Gut Check: Trump’s Plus, and Minus

Let’s begin with the late Andrew Breitbart’s often repeated quote: Politics is downstream from culture. Meaning, culture influences politics, not the reverse – and until conservatives figure out a way to take the culture back from the left, we cannot win.

Gutcheck: When No Lives Matter

On Monday, a lowly cable network known for bleeding viewers had a talking head on that remarked on the “enormity” of grief that followed the murder of a white Texas deputy by a black dude in a gas station.

Gut Check: The Trump Speech Donald Trump Should Make (to Me)

We’re all a**holes. I’ve just decided to do it in public, while you do it – mostly – at home. You, Gutfeld – are an a**hole, too. Admit it, as you write this very sentence. You. Are. An. A**hole. I’ve met you and your wife. I honestly do not know how she puts up with you. She’s a great gal. Fabulous. What she’s doing with you, an aging dwarf – astounds me. Seriously, have her call me.

Gutcheck: Five Books From a Five Guy

Because it’s summer, and you’re supposed to spend a fair portion of it sweating under the blinding sun, devouring antiquated things called books – I figure I’d offer you my reading list so far. But instead of writing typical reviews for these following five tomes, I’m just gunna tell you what each book made me think about, and why.

GUTCHECK: Dana’s Smash Hit. The Gutfeld Interview

GREG GUTFELD: SINCE THIS IS YOUR FIRST BOOK, HOW TERRIFIED WERE YOU OF FAILING MISERABLY (I HAVE READ THE BOOK ALREADY, AND KNOW THAT IT’S REALLY GREAT, AND WILL SELL TONS). HOW DID YOU PLAN IT OUT? WAS IT HARD TO GET STARTED?

The End of an Error

The title of this piece is exactly what I said, when a coworker reacted with surprise about my recent exit from the wonderful show, Redeye. I said, “it’s the end of an error,” when of course, I meant, “era.”

Gut Check: Your Own Personal Blasphemy

I noticed it first when a person said to me, “I used to like your work, until you said X.” The “X” could have been a joke or comment about pets or musicians — but for the offended, it was enough for them to disown their previous opinions of me forever.

Gut Check: Cartoonish Behavior

Forgive me if a march for unity leaves me cold. It should be a march for war. This is not a time for a call for unity under the guise of tolerance, but for a unity of will – a collective fortitude necessary to destroy a movement that wants to destroy us. Most people get this. The media, not so much.

GUTCHECK: Why Sony Should Scare You

GUTCHECK: Why Sony Should Scare You

I hate the news right now, because websites, TV shows, and blogs are all reporting on the Sony emails – poring over the content, sucking out the juiciest bits and spitting them our way. Accidentally, I’ll get one right in

Gut Check: Gutfeld’s Records of the Year 2014

Anyone who reads my list of favorite records knows I’m an old punk who over the years has drifted into psychedelic and acid rock, and there is no turning back for me. To me, all music should be psychedelic: if

Gutcheck: Review: Portlandia Season Four

The fourth season of “Portlandia,” the brilliant show created by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, is now available on NetFlix, and it’s better than it has ever been – systematically devastating in its portrayal of modern American malaise, pretension, and ego – and funny

Gut Check: The Race Race

Gut Check: The Race Race

As political races loom and gloom sets in among democrats, the topic of racism heats up. Race warfare is the weapon you grab when it looks really, really bad. The sad part: it works! While racism exists (everywhere), the notion

Gut Check: Pain Relievers

Gut Check: Pain Relievers

I hate self-help books, and yet I realize, when I begin a sentence with, “I hate self-help books,” it’s because I’m about to make a sharp turn with, “But this book is different.” Yes, it’s true. Sadly, I am now

Gut Check: So, Where Do Death Panels Come From?

Ezekiel Emanuel, a primary mastermind of Obamacare, wants you to know that he wishes to die at 75. So, PLEASE, don’t try to stop him. LET HIM GO.  I KNOW… it’s hard. He’s a swell guy. In his recent pseudo-controversial article

Gut Check: In Defense of Jerks

Make no mistake: Gene Simmons can be an irritating, egotistical asshole. But he’s a smart one. One who has made money not just for himself, but for thousands of people along his five-decade career. And he is one who speaks

When I was a teen, I used to see the VHS copy of Picnic at Hanging Rock at our local version of Blockbuster, called Captain Video. I would stare at the alluring cover — featuring young girls in white dresses —

Gut Check: The Sleeping Policeman

It’s Sunday morning, and I’m reading the reports on the Malaysia Airline mass murder, and it’s beyond depressing. Imagine if it were a son or a daughter, a sister or a brother, a mom or a dad–rotting in that field. And

Gut Check: Ode to the Bar Owner in a Small Town

Truckee, California.  I was there to deal with some family stuff and get away from some family stuff. There I came across the taker and the risk-taker. After being away from this little town outside of Lake Tahoe for at

The Killing: David Wain's 'They Came Together'

It’s one thing to complain about something. It’s a better thing to do something about it. David Wain, with his latest film They Came Together, did something beyond dismissing the cliches and lies that construct the typical romantic comedy. He

Rock Review: Tilts

Rock music, at its heart, is the male brain expressing what’s necessary for pleasure. Is that sexist? Of course it is. Rock music is periodically blessed by women, when they join in, but mostly it’s the product of creatures with

I Hate/Love This Band

Fat White Family suffers from so many self-inflicted flaws they deserve to fail, and disappear. Their name sucks, their sound is erratic, sloppy and self-consciously assholish. Reveling in degradation, glorifying deadly ideologies, stinking of puke and cocaine – they’re a
