Brookline Stand Up

No Room Service, Just Snacks And Shit

My favorite blog (other than Brookline Stand Up, of course) is called Snacks and Shit. It’s no NPR or anything, but it’s hilarious.

It was started by two comedians from LA who select rap lyrics, examine them and them post their amusing analyses for all to enjoy. They describe the purpose of their blog in the very first post:

“This blog is about rap and hip-hop lyrics that are absolutely absurd, ludicrous, nonsensical, ridiculous, basic, basically stupid, basically bad, basically basic, or preposterous. We also take some lines and examine them literally. In the words of one of our critics, we are “willfully obtuse”. Call it what you want. Hopefully we don’t get capped. You have to understand that we really do love rap and all of these artists that we kid about.”

The best part about this blog is not just that the posts are golden, but that these guys genuinely appreciate rap music. It’s almost as if they are lovingly teasing the likes of Kanye West, Gucci Mane and Jay-Z as if they were old friends.

One of my favorite posts pokes fun at a Dr. Dre line from Jay-Z’s “Watch Me.”

Ahhh love it. Check out more at
