    Culture Your F**king Self

    The Sociology of “Shameless” And How It Applies To Us

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JyB6Bu3gsI&noredirect=1 “Think of all the luck you got / Know that it’s not for naught.” As far as theme songs go, the opener for “Shameless” couldn’t be more aptly ironic. It’s with this point-and-laugh self-awareness that the Gallagher clan, a family of six surviving on the South Side of Chicago, reaps the disadvantages of bad luck. Scraping and scheming is how the ...

    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 ...

    Ask Her More, But Don’t Forget the Dress

    Oh, the Oscars. The epitome of Hollywood glamour and arguably the most famed award show on Earth. And what would the Oscars be without fashion? According to some people, it might be better. This year’s Academy Awards has come with as much buzz about the red carpet interviews as the movies. The mani-cam, which was created to let celebs “strut” their fingers ...

    Sounding Off on Hate Crime in America

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Alyssa Hockensmith. “I hate you!” That exclamation is what I have to deal with when I ask middle schoolers to follow the rules. This phrase may seem rather harmless because it’s coming from a child who doesn’t actually hate me. He or she just hates the rules I’m enforcing. Even as 20-somethings, we throw around the word ...

    As Seen on TV: Adolescence through the Eyes of Your Favorite Shows

    I remember the Saturday morning my naïve, fourth-grade concept of high school was shattered. As I flipped through the channels, I could have stopped on an episode of ”Spongebob Squarepants” or “Lizzie McGuire” I had seen a million times, but since my mom was still sleeping I had some freedom. TBS was airing a rerun of “Dawson’s Creek,” The WB’s flagship teen drama that was wildly ...

    The Age of Dwindling Curiosity

    I have become a professional college student. I know which classes take attendance, and therefore which classes I can get away with skipping. I’ve mastered the all-nighter, and have been able to just barely learn an entire semester’s worth of knowledge overnight. I’ve even perfected the art of using two computers at once while taking an online quiz- enhancing my ability to ...

    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    We’re not sure why it’s still so damn cold, but there’s one thing we know for sure: the bars are cozy with warm cider and sorority girls in fur vests. Throw on a liquor blanket and this playlist and celebrate life. ...

    Lent Me Your Ears for a Moment

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Emma Sullivan. Disclaimer: I am by no means a religious expert. In fact, I was kicked out of Confirmation class for kind of sort of leading a Sunday-school protest (long story), so my street cred in the Vatican is very entry-level, if that. Ash Wednesday is upon us. Prepare ye sacred forehead for the blessed ...

    Technology Brings New Rules to the Dating Game

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Kelli Eichorn. My Aunt Wanda lived in an era of drive-in movies and jukeboxes. She bought coke floats at Walgreens, a once-hip hangout spot. While on dates, her dinner came to the table via a girl in roller skates. More remarkably, when a boy liked her, he had to ask in person, and only after meeting ...

    Little League Scandal: The Tale of Jackie Robinson West

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Paul McFadden. There are always tough moments that every dedicated sports fan must deal with at some point in their life. These are the times when there are no Odell Beckham Jr. one-handed grabs to show and no Steph Curry three-pointers to highlight. The times when sports seem to plateau in their energy and excitement. When ...
