    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    “American Horror Story” Takes Terrifying Clowns to A New Level

    This is a guest post from GainesvilleScene’s Jessica Hundley. SPOILER ALERT: Do not proceed if you’re not caught up with the current season of “American Horror Story.”  If you’re anything like me, there are only two seasons in the year. “American Horror Story” season and waiting for “American Horror Story” season. Let me tell you friends, my favorite time of the year is ...

    Do Yourself A Favor and Write A Letter

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Alyse Faour. Getting a letter in the mail is a small reminder that someone cares enough to pay for a stamp just to communicate with you. There is something about a tangible piece of writing that makes us feel like we matter, unless it comes from Comcast. In a class of mine we recently spoke ...

    CoWork: Tampa’s Newest Creative Hotspot

    Tampa has evolved into an artsy city. Just take a walk in downtown or Ybor, and it’s obvious. Creativity breeds creativity, and it works best when you’re able to feed off of others. It’s an amazing source of energy, but where do we set the atmosphere? This is where CoWork Ybor comes into play. And I’m super stoked about it. What is ...

    Brittany’s Choice

    10 days. That’s how long Brittany Maynard has until she ends her own life. Recently wed and only 29 years old, Maynard was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme in April, the deadliest form of brain cancer. She was given six months to live. Maynard decided to opt out of full brain radiation. The side effects would include hair loss, first-degree burns on her ...

    Confessions of a Workaholic

    This is a guest post from GainesvilleScene’s Alyssa Hockensmith. Do they have AA meetings for people who are addicted to work? Or can hyper-productive people not find the time to attend such gatherings? In any case, I’m using you all as my support group. I’m 22, and I work three jobs. I guess my work-aholism began when I got my first “real” ...

    New Perspectives From Foreign Professors

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Emily Clemons. In high school, I always heard horror stories about college professors. “My math professor was Chinese and could barely speak English!“ or, “I almost failed biology because I couldn’t understand a single word my TA said.” The one I heard most often was, “It’s a shame that we don’t have more American professors teaching American students in American universities.” Prior to ...

    Learning Life from the Violin

    This is a guest post from GainesvilleScene’s Tara Hempstead. I would like to say I always had a burning desire to play violin, but when I picked one up in fifth grade, it was purely as a joke. (Shout-out to bribing kids to pick up stringed instruments by letting them leave class for an hour to go to Strings Class.) Music has had ...

    It’s a Bucs Life Now And Always

    If there’s one thing every NFL fan can agree on, it’s that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink. Whether you’re a Bucs fan, there’s really no sugarcoating it. We are arguably the worst team in the NFL right now. Yeah, we have one win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the truth is we’ve looked worse than both the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars, ...

    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    Congratulations! You’ve kind of survived football season, midterms, work and, generally speaking, another week of responsibilities. You deserve to kick your feet up, or down, and ignore obligations for as long as you can. You’ve worked hard. Treat yo’ self with this weekend’s Dirty Dozen, which includes Calvin Harris’s first good song in ages. Enjoy. ...

    The Lowdown on Consent and Nude Photos

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Emily Clemons. “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It is disgusting.” In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer Lawrence spoke up about the recent nude photo leak that victimized her and several other celebrities. The FBI is investigating the crime, where a hacker broke into ...

    The Perfect Body Fallacy

    This is a guest post from TheOrlandoScene’s Calyn Waddington. You would assume that use of positive body image would be widespread throughout advertisements by now. Some companies acknowledge the average female and male shopper’s body– size 14 and size 44, respectively —  and how we all come in different shapes and sizes. So why is it that I came across a startling discovery while at ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken the task ...

    America’s Love Affair With Drones

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Cassidy Curls. Drones have become a staple of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts. According to the Washington Post, a report from 2012 showed that 83 percent of Americans approve of the Obama Administration’s use of drones against suspected overseas terrorists.  Of those numbers, 59 percent “strongly approve.”  The issue is extremely bipartisan, meaning that the majority of ...
