Welcome to Idiotville - Erie, PA’s Liberal Conscience: We want you to be better, Erie. But you just keep screwing it up. Every time someone opens their mouth with a good idea, someone has to have a reason why not. That reason usually isn’t very well thought out, it usually involves thinly (or not so thinly) veiled racism. This town can move forward, but until we confront the demons that lurk here, we aren’t going anywhere. If you don’t like what we’ve got to say, come at us with a good take. ...

Public school funding in Pennsylvania has been on the skids for decades now, but today, it’s doing real harm all over the state. And this isn’t by accident. PA’s legislature has created a system where the kids who need the most, get the least, usually because of where they live. So much so that across the Keystone State, 86% of public school students are attending schools that are underfunded. And lots of Pennsylvanians are saying enough is enough. Some of them have gone so far as to take th ...

Y’all have been begging us for an American Hi-Fi song for ages now, and we aim to please. Flavor of the Weak is a super great song, VERY guitar forward, the riff slays, the hi hats are compressed, Nintendo takes some strays (or so we thought), and it’s just a super fun, super catchy song.
