    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. 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 ...

    The Errors of Short-hand Text: An Open Letter

    Dear people who use texting abbreviations far too often, Why are you doing this to me? Like most Millennials, I text fairly often. If you want to get in touch with me, texting is the best way.

    Citrus Greening and The Fate of Florida’s Oranges

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Grant Sennott It is no secret that oranges are an integral part of the average Floridian’s life. Growing up, they were that essential component that made any breakfast instantly better. Now when we see them on license plates, it’s a handy “this guy is prone to driving like an asshole” disclaimer. At work, they’re a healthy, convenient and ...

    “Trainwreck” Sucked

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Debora Lima.  Man oh man, where the fuck do I begin? For starters, let me say that I now respect Amy Schumer less because of “Trainwreck” — not that she gives a rat’s ass, otherwise she wouldn’t have let this pile of cinematic excrement go anywhere past the cutting-room floor, but yeah. My respect for her ...

    Why You Should be Excited About the U.S. Women’s World Cup Win

    The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup concluded July 5 when the USWNT (U.S. Women’s National Team) absolutely snatched the soul of the Japanese National Women’s Team in a rematch of the previous World Cup. And boy did they show out. Fifteen minutes into the match the score was already 4-0 and Carli Lloyd already had a hat-trick. I was witnessing history being ...

    Cry $$$ Tour Brings Music And Hair Art

    The Reason for Eating in Season

    This is a guest post by Michaela Beeda from sister publication GainesvilleGrub.  Americans are spoiled. During any time of the year, we can walk into a grocery store and buy any fruit or vegetable we want, regardless of the season. And we don’t think twice about it. Why should we? We got what we came for, and that’s all the matters, right? ...
