This is Abu Ben Badd, the Genie of the Popmachine, and I’m bad as I ever was. No brag, just fact. I’m chocolate coated, freaky and habit forming and I promise to be good to your ear holes. I’m the master of media, fighting cognitive decline, one show at a time on WHPK at 88.5 FM Radio. Tune in and let the groovalicious, throbatronic, sonic vibrations of the Popmachine rearrange the basic atoms of your mind and save it from fading away. Because of all the things you’ll lose in life, you’ll miss your mind the most.

Aunt May

YOU! you dumb bitch, young bitch, silly bitch, dead bitch. She got the gun bitch!! Lonnie if you gonna bring bitches in here, bring a Smart Bitch!


– Aunt May’s response to that bitch Jasmine when she asks Cheryl “Who you calling a dumb bitch?!’ in the movie Almost Christmas (2016).

Friedrich Nietzsche

You should not be afraid of someone who has a library and reads many books; you should fear someone who has only one book; and he considers it sacred, but he has never read it.



people with no heroes and no accomplishments doing the only thing they know: crying to the courts to allow them to turn beautiful things that other people made into garbage


– @Maarbiek responding to the Washington Post article about the melting of the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville.


Roderick Usher

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade? No. First you roll out a multi-media campaign to convince people lemons are incredibly scarce, which only works if you stockpile lemons, control the supply, then a media blitz. Lemon is the only way to say “I love you,” the must-have accessory for engagements or anniversaries. Roses are out, lemons are in. Billboards that say she won’t have sex with you unless you got lemons. You cut De Beers in on it. Limited edition lemon bracelets, yellow diamonds called lemon drops. You get Apple to call their new operating system OS-Lemón. A little accent over the “o.” You charge 40% more for organic lemons, 50% more for conflict-free lemons. You pack the Capitol with lemon lobbyists, you get a Kardashian to suck a lemon wedge in a leaked sex tape. Timotheé Chalamet wears lemon shoes at Cannes. Get a hashtag campaign. Something isn’t “cool” or “tight” or “awesome,”  …cont’d


– from Netflix’s “The Fall of the House of Usher”.


Roderick Usher cont’d

cont’d…  no, it’s “lemon.” “Did you see that movie? Did you see that concert? It was effing lemon.” Billie Eilish, “OMG, hashtag… lemon.” You get Dr. Oz to recommend four lemons a day and a lemon suppository supplement to get rid of toxins ‘cause there’s nothing scarier than toxins. Then you patent the seeds. You write a line of genetic code that makes the lemons look just a little more like tits… and you get a gene patent for the tit-lemon DNA sequence, you cross-pollinate… you get those seeds circulating in the wild, and then you sue the farmer for copyright infringement when that genetic code shows up on their land. Sit back, rake in the millions, and then, when you’re done, and you’ve sold your lem-pire for a few billion dollars, then, and only then, you make some fucking lemonade.


– from Netflix’s “The Fall of the House of Usher”.


Spawn vs Superman

Boy, If you don’t get your old red Speedo briefs with the dick hole on the outside wearing, flamboyant cape flapping, 1930’s spit curl gelled back, John Travolta in Grease, strong Ronda Rousey chiseled crimson booty crack chin, Virginia Mountain Tractor mechanic, molested boy scout with badges looking ass, the complete fuck out my face. I’ll leave when I find out which one of you is Marvin.


– from “Why He Roast Superman Like That”.


Richard Pryor

Crosses only scare vampires away because they’re allergic to bullshit.



George Carlin

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.


Steve Maraboli

Sometimes, you just have to play the role of a fool to fool the fool who thinks they are fooling you.

Oscar Wilde

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

William W. Purkey

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.

Thomas A. Edison

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

Bob Marley

The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.

Albert Einstein

If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.

Captain Jack Sparrow

You’ll always remember this as the day that you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow.


– Johnny Depp from the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”


Look, for the last time, we have nothing to protect but our honor. So you can take your cheap horse piss that you call whiskey, which, by the way, is spelled without an ‘e’ and is nothing compared to a single malt scotch and you can go fuck yourself.


– Mark Strong from the movie “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”

Inspector Harry Callahan

Uh uh. I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?


– Clint Eastwood from the movie “Dirty Harry”

Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore

Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn’t find one of ’em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell? The whole hill. Smelled like… victory. Someday this war’s gonna end.


– Robert Duvall from the movie “Apocalypse Now”

Roy Batty

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those…moments will be lost in time, like tears…in rain. Time to die.


– Rutger Hauer from the movie “Blade Runner”

Rick Blaine

Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.


– Humphrey Bogart from the movie “Casablanca”

Roger “Verbal” Kint

Keaton always said, “I don’t believe in God, but I’m afraid of him.” Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.


– Kevin Spacey from the movie “The Usual Suspects”

Gold Hat

Badges? We ain’t got no badges! We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!


– Alfonso Bedoya from the movie “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre”

Jack Swigert

Houston, we have a problem.


– Kevin Bacon from the movie “Apollo 13”

Bryan Mills

If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.


– Liam Neeson from the movie “Taken”

Bullet-Tooth Tony

So, you are obviously the big dick. The men on the side of ya are your balls. Now there are two types of balls. There are big brave balls, and there are little mincey faggot balls… Now, dicks have drive and clarity of vision, but they are not clever. They smell pussy and they want a piece of the action. And you thought you smelled some good old pussy, and have brought your two little mincey faggot balls along for a good old time. But you’ve got your parties muddled up. There’s no pussy here, just a dose that’ll make you wish you were born a woman. Like a prick, you are having second thoughts. You are shrinking, and your two little balls are shrinking with you. And the fact that you’ve got “Replica” written down the side of your guns and the fact that I’ve got “Desert Eagle point five O” written on the side of mine, should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now… Fuck off!


– Vinny Jones from the movie “Snatchr”

Albert Camus

Everybody knows that pestilences have a way of recurring in the world; yet somehow we find it hard to believe in ones that crash down on our heads from a blue sky. There have been as many plagues as wars in history; yet always plagues and wars take people equally by surprise.

The Principal

Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.


– James Downey from the film “Billy Madison”


The victor is not victorious if the vanquished does not consider himself so.


– from a Roman Poet in times of the Republic

Tyrion Lannister

When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.


– George R.R. Martin from the book “A Clash of Kings”


If the situation was hopeless, their propaganda would be unnecessary.
