Steve Grand posted this TBT with the caption “giving zero fucks since 2006. I was rebelliously channeling some “Brokeback Mountain” realness. But for real, why didn’t anyone stop me? Or at least take the microphone away??”


I’m no longer a gay republican and here’s why:

“The tipping point was this: some of my Democrat friends and family supported me. They made phone calls for me, donated money to my campaign and let me put signs in their yards. Why? Because what they saw was a friend, a loved one, not an opponent. I began to ask myself if I would support them in a hypothetical race. The answer was no, I wouldn’t. And I HATED that answer. The problem is is that that is the only answer good enough for a Rush Limbaugh-worshipping, welfare-hating, bible-toting, Climate Change-denying member of the GOP.”

Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.

You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.

At #6 is “Sex Over The Phone” by The Village People.

“Hello baby, it’s me. Your fantasy.” Sorry, wrong number.
