Dan’s Top5 Internet Finds (9/27/2016) PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE EDITION

To keep the NSB presidential theme going, I decided to dedicate this Top5 to tonight’s presidential debate (and the election). If you are a fan of either Trump or Clinton (or a hater of either/both), then I guarantee you that one of these will tickle your funny bone. Like if you support Trump, Share if you support Clinton. Like and share if you hate both and look forward to the next four years of doom and gloom. TOP TRUMP MEMES...

Walter, Danny & PK: Kings of KTown

Koreatown Los Angeles wasn’t always a nightlife hot spot for all Angelinos, but in recent years, the largely homogeneous population of soju drinkers has experienced a big and wonderful change, non-Koreans have joined the fray.

Nicki vs Iggy

Nicki Minaj, for better or worse, is one of music’s biggest stars. With hits like Super Bass, Starships and features like Bang Bang or straight hitters like Monster where she drops the hottest verse on the track; love her and that fake ass or hate her, there’s no denying her star power. On the other hand you have Iggy Azalea, the wonder from down under. With a delivery that evokes memories of MC Lyte or Charli Baltimore...

Korea: Perception Over Reality

Anyone from the West who has had the chance to live in Korea has, beyond any doubt, felt or at least observed racism while there.

And after reading a post from...
