Welcome to The Safety First. This is a self-deprecating, satirical, fearless, and joy-filled blog about the things that really matter. Like is Lost the best show ever made for TV? Yes. By far. Can I rank the top 25 Harry Hoods every played by Phish in order off the top of my head? Yes. What is the greatest decade in movie history? The 1980s. What is the best era for television? Right now. Pop music? The 1980s, but right now is actually not bad and I’ll defend Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus to the death. Best Rock band ever? Stones or Beattles? Fuck that, it’s Taking Heads. This the kind of direction we want to go on this blog.
The founders are a duo of two cousins who grew up two blocks apart from one another and grew up furiously collecting baseball cards, playing Goonies and Maniac Mansion for NES, getting arrested for stealing 40s of Colt 45, playing Fight for Your Right at a high school dance, and both losing our younger brothers to mental illness. So, we’re here to make you laugh and cry and hopefully escape in our words. It’s nice and quiet in here.
Ryan has extensive blog writing experience spanning AOL Fanhouse, Sports Illustrated, Hidden Track (Glide Magazine), Relix, No Depression, Post-Trash, and Jambase, while Kevin has a long list of self-produced and directed successful comic shorts floating around the interwebs.
So, effectively we are an entertainment blog. We’ll have long-form features with interviews, lists, satirical nonsense, movies, tv, music, and book commentary (reviews, I don’t know, who likes reviews anyway?), and a lot of just goofy stream of consciousness about cryptocurrencies and bond math. Anyway, we believe you are in for a treat.
Please come back regularly – like maybe twice a week or so. We’ll be here and our job is to entertain. You can bash us, love us, not really care about us, or anything in between, but we’ll try our asses off to make you laugh and think and share the things that we enjoy. You’ll get recommendations up the ass up in here. In summary, we’re the shit; let’s get on with it.
