    Straight Outta My Mind About “Straight Outta Compton”

    This is guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Kathryn Williams. When I saw the trailer for Straight Outta Compton in theaters way back when, I knew I had to see this movie. Not only did the cast look fantastic, but the situation surrounding the film couldn’t have been timelier. The movie busted right into the theme that sparked the initial media controversy surrounding S.O.C., quite ...

    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 ...

    How YouTube Helped Me Come Out

    I came out on July 21, and it is a day that I will never forget. It was the first day of the rest of my life, but I never could have imagined that it would have been motivated by YouTube. For so long, I felt lost in my confusion and lonely in my suppression. I couldn’t accept what was so blatantly ...

    Out of the Locker Room: The Rays’ Stadium Solution

    I want to begin this article by stating that I am not a baseball fan — in the interest of full disclosure and all that. If you asked me to name 10 professional baseball players, I would cry and run away. I’ve watched maybe seven baseball games in my life, not counting the pitiful Little League games I played in as a ...

    My Day at the Tampa Bay Comic Con

    I was recently elected the most amazing uncle in the world. The Tampa Bay Comic Con was happening downtown, and I piled my sister’s kids, ages 11 and 6, in the car and headed that way. Luckily, we didn’t have any swords or plasma rifles for the security guards to inspect, so we walked right in. You should have seen those kids’ ...

    The Art of “Fuck Yes or No”

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Claire Fuller A good friend of mine shared an article with me a while back when I was complaining to her about a guy and how wishy-washy my situation with him was (spoiler alert: it didn’t work out because he was a closet asshole).

    The Present and The Fallen

    Do you remember what you were doing the morning of September 11, 2001? I do. I was in Mrs. Love’s second grade class when we were told all of our parents were coming to pick us up from school early. Not understanding the weight of what was happening, my friends and I were excited. What a treat!  The rest of the school ...

    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. I screen calls from numbers I don’t recognize because I’m afraid of getting sued or something — it’s a neuroses of mine. My parents know ...
