University is the place for reality (via The Red & Black)

This is my column that was published today. Totes counts as a post! — I can’t turn off reality. It’s my weeknight highlight, my hunch to read spoiler alerts, my reason for taking a break from the chaos around me to peer into someone else’s life. But as I sit with bated breath at panel results to […]

It’s been a few days. Allow me to explain: when one finds oneself in a position wherein one sets a bar of humor and entertainment for oneself and one’s readership that becomes increasingly difficult to reach, one faces writer’s block from even the most minute setback. Or in simpler terms: I had a total fart […]

Never the bride(smaid). And that’s okay.

Hello friends. Long time no blog. Tonight, I saw Kristen Wiig/Paul Fieg/Judd Apatow’s (writer/star, director, producer, respectively, for the n00bz) new film, Bridesmaids, at an advance screening at UGA. It had everything–the feminine sensibility of a chick flick, the charm of a rom com, the hilarity of gross-out humor, Wilson Phillips, puppies, and so on […]

As I write this, I am doing two significant things: 1) Listening to “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias 2) Sitting just about 80 hits short of 30,000. Use personal judgment to determine which concerns me more. Anywho, I have a vow to upkeep, so I’m blogging. (Not that you should expect much from me, since it’s […]

“Left out,” indeed.

I’d like to take this opportunity–pause for a moment, as I climb atop my soapbox–to educate you all about a problem that plagues me to a deeply personal extent. I have come too far in life not to acknowledge it. There have been too many awkward dinner table shuffles, pencil smears, guitar lesson woes and […]

Funny how this all came about. This morning, my communication law professor continued his lecture to us on copyright law. He talked about how, if we used sound, video, imagery–whatever–owned by someone else without permission, we could be sued/approached with a take-down notice/held liable. That’s worse than getting called to standards, right? I figured such. […]
