This Duet Proves Good Fathers Still Exist

If I had a nickel for every time someone chalked up a series of bad decisions to “daddy issues” I’d probably be rich.  A whole Diet Coke rich.  That’s a lot considering every striptease is met with a series of *tsk tsk tsks* and a general inquiry as to where that woman’s father was.  I’m not going to get into a discussion about the parental effects on a child’s decision to disrobe for a living–which I, for the record, believe is a perfectly valid and intelligent way of putting oneselfRead More

Kill Your Facebook

Barbecue sauce, weekend benders, porn, television, movies, Hulu. What do these all have in common? In reasonable doses they can add new dimensions of fun and texture to your life, but too much and the law of diminishing returns kicks in. What’s delicious? Hot wings and barbecue. What’s disgusting? One wing in a tub of Stubb’s. This is what personal media has become to me: a constant binge of distraction. Let me clarify something. I’m 28. I’m in the doldrums of the twenty-something. I’m now filling the void which wasRead More

The YouTube channel’s ‘Kid Snippets’ have brought me an incredible amount of entertainment in recent days. They’ve also reminded me of following: It’s important to be encouraging and make your feedback constructive. There are certain things you should always look for when voting for a presidential candidate. Fire can be good and bad. Also, it’s important to make the best out of every situation, no matter how awful. Speeding is wrong,Read More

This Website Will Change Your Life: No Excuse List

Most of us spend at least twelve years of our lives in school (unless you’re a Kardashian or a child star, in which case you’re just screwed). Throughout the years spent in preschool, elementary, high school, and possibly college and beyond, we cram our brains with facts that 99% of us will never need to recall ever again. In this new edition of This Website Will Change Your Life, we’re turning learning upside down and introducing ways to master things that are actually useful and relevant. The website in question,Read More

This Website Will Change Your Life: The Useless Web

While Sophie’s first installment in this series of life-changing websites was on the serious end of the spectrum, this volume of the series is on the utterly inane and ridiculous side. While productivity and useful tools can certainly change your life, so can a website that can consume hours of your time doing unproductive things! Hey, nobody ever said “This Website Will Change Your Life” meant that it would change it for the BETTER. Alas, meet The Useless Web. The Useless Web is exactly what it sounds like: useless. ThisRead More

I know there are way more annoying things you all do…but these 5 have been bugging me the most lately. 1. Posting 1,001 pictures of your dog/cat/baby Okay I get it.

Fact: 99% of animal babies are cuter thanRead More
