Your News, in List-Form

Here’s a question worth asking: why does contemporary news come in list-form? It used to be we’d get the occasional, yearly ‘Top 10 Albums’, ‘Top 10 Movies’, ‘Top 10 Books’ lists, and so on. In recent years, though, the practice of utilizing lists became somewhat of a go-to platform for authors of popular culture. Lists ranking a year’s most entertaining television shows evolved into indexed accounts of where to find the most delicious nonfat lattes in southern California. If you were wondering why giraffes should be your favorite animal, BuzzfeedRead More

That Time I Made A YouTube Video…

I absolutely love making videos, sketches, short movies, anything that tells a story or has something funny, even if it’s immature, 8th grade boy humor. Most videos I have made have something relating to violence, death, masturbation, drinking, blood, poop, spit, cussing, and other juvenile and unsophisticated topics or objects. But I still love to make them. Usually only a few eyes see them, be it close friends or the less-than-a-hundred, sad people who are spammed the video by me through Twitter or some other internet platform, just like every other millionsRead More

Social Media Life vs. Real Life

In this new age of technology and social sharing, millennials have seemed to have found a new fine line between reality and what we want our reality to be. Truthfully speaking, if you’re really getting drunk how is it possible for you post a red-eyed picture with perfect hastags? We all know that reality TV isn’t real (Insert shocking gasp.) Wait, you didn’t know that Brody and LC didn’t really date on The Hills? Or that Kim K…well nothing she does is real. It’s not really a surprise that society’sRead More

The Comparison Complex: 7th Grade to Now

In Junior High, I wore pleather pants from Wal-Mart, probably accessorized with leopard-print sneakers and 12-too-many butterfly clips in my crafty up-do.  I proudly told people that I didn’t care what anyone thought about me.  I was lying.  Truth is, I wore my hair like a drug addict because I wanted to stand out.  And as far as the pleather pants, those were in style, okay?  My little sister got a pair too because I’m a terrible influence.  We were a couple of tweens in mass-market pleather.  With braces.  Visualize that.Read More

Internet, Have You No Decency?

I’m not sure why people think it’s appropriate to post graphic material on social media. It’s one of the questions that perplex mankind; akin to “What’s the meaning of life?” or “What’s on the other side of a black hole?” or “If you’re so fancy, and I already know, then why do you feel the need to sing me a song about it?” Seemingly every day my Facebook feed blows up with memes about battered women and children, or a blog article about how a woman was brutally raped, orRead More

Then he got interviewed by Good Morning America and the cuteness continued…   HisRead More

The Hot vs Crazy Matrix

This video should be considered and educational piece for guys to decide whether or not a girl will be “dateable.” Also, he clearly lays out how girls judge guys (money and hotness duh). The WASP of a man totally nailed it…I mean, every “Tiffany” I have met, was effing crazy. Please watch and take notes. (*note just jump to :53 when he starts doing the graph). Where my unicorns at?!  Read More
Last week an amazing YouTube video graced the world with its presence. Basically, homegirl just got her wisdom teeth out (ouch) and is still loopy from the anesthesia (ughh jealous). This video was a compilation of vines she posted, that have sense been deleted… but the short clips have become a short film, that will be featured in the Sundance film festival because it is that good. Kidding- but honestly this shit is amazing. She has just expressed every white-girl fantasy in 30 seconds… I mean we were all thinkingRead More

Why is Everyone on the Internet so Angry?

Has anyone else noticed a rise in angry, rude, and unnecessary comments online? Where there used to be likes, up votes, and encouraging comments there are now trolls and real angry words. What caused this shift, and why does it seem to be getting worse? Obviously some people’s mothers forgot to tell them that “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Aside from missing life advice, there are five things that are definitely contributing to this wave, and there are surely others.  1. NewnessRead More

There’s An App For That

This past weekend I did what any 22 year old should be doing on a Friday night, which is going out to bars with friends. Only this Friday I didn’t go out with the usual arrogant, ostentatious, egotistical douchebags, also known as my best friends from college. This time I met up with my best friends from high school who all went to a different college. In the midst of trying to figure out the plans, there were some people confused by this alien idea of using an app forRead More
It’s tempting, the moment I see one of my articles has garnered some comments, to devour them up like a dieting white girl who’s finally made it to her cheat day. And I used to dot it, hesitantly, in the beginning. But what I quickly found (very, very quickly) was that reading comments just left me feeling a) annoyed b) defensive c) fed up with all of humanity and d) thankful for the one person, that lone hold out, who actually got it. Here’s some things I’ve noticed about the commentRead More
