    The High Price of Being Bronzed

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Ben Duong. People do a lot to look their best, and sometimes they get a little carried away. Take a cursory look at the wide range of beauty products available on the market and you’ll agree. There are things like pheromone-laced shaving gel and skin cremes that go for more than $300 a pop. However, ...

    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 it upon ourselves ...

    Hersh is Wrong About the bin Laden Raid

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Ben Duong. After a long decade, the U.S. finally had its vengeance for 9/11. A successful Seal Team raid resulted in the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The secretive operation to infiltrate bin laden’s compound in Pakistan was controversial from the get-go — controversy helped along by accusations of leaked details of the raid and ...

    There’s No Such Thing As TMI

    There is an inevitable moment in everyone’s life. You’ll be telling a story with either immense pride or tangible shame. You know your story won’t garner rave reviews or even a standing ovation. Instead, there is only one critique possible: “Too much information.” But is there actually such a thing as sharing too much information? I reject the concept of TMI. Sure, ...

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Tampa. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in dollar pitchers at The Hut every Saturday, or you can embrace your precious time here in Cigar City and go explore. We’ve helped you survive road trips and spring break. We supply ...

    Back to Basics: Decoding the “Bad Bitch”

    If you have ears and a radio, chances are you’ve been subjected to the horrible “clean” edit of A$AP Rocky’s “F***ing Problems” that goes, “I love bad – bad, that’s my – that’s my problem.” What’s A$AP’s obsession? Bad bitches. It’s a new kind of “It” girl, one who claims to not give a fuck and despises all things predictable. It is ...

    Ben Meets World: The Conflict in Yemen

    National Geographic says nine in 10 of us can’t locate Iraq on a map. That means the thousands of hours we, the 18 to 24 set, spend consuming media each year has resulted in little more than wasted time and a few “Likes.” If that’s you, scanning an Atlas with a frantic index finger (hint: Iraq is in Asia), you’ve come to the ...

    What Kids Really Think About Today’s Technology

    My 11-year-old brother received a blue iPhone 5c from his parents upon entering the fifth grade. I, on the other hand, didn’t receive my first Motorola Razr flip phone until I entered teen-dom in the seventh grade. The difference? It’s not our parents. We share the same pair. It’s the times. They are a-changin’. Computers used to take up entire rooms. These ...

    On the Issues: Carly Fiorina

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Caroline Stonecipher. Politics are confusing. With a playing field this big, it’s hard to know where each of the 2016 presidential candidates stands on the issues. But the choices these rich old people make directly impact the country we live in, so it’s important to be informed about who you’ll vote for when the election rolls ...

    Baltimore Riots: Beyond the Sensationalism

    This is a guest post by Chelsea Hazlett. Chelsea is a third-year environmental management major at UF. Ah, America. The land of the free, home of the overly opinionated. The majority of us want our personal standpoint to remain unchallenged. However, welcoming controversy with a respectable level of civility gets things done and builds moderate viewpoints. Analyzing our views allows us to ...

    Demystifying the “Dad Bod”

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Daniel Harrison. In eighth grade I was a chubby little dude. I rocked my Ecko Unlmtd t-shirts, high top sneakers, a silver chain and spiked up hair like it was nobody’s business. I strutted the halls of Coral Springs Middle like I was hot shit because, well, I thought I was. I was confident in ...
