    The Truth Behind the Grey

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Tiffany Battle. By now, everyone has to have heard of “50 Shades of Grey,” whether it be the notorious novel or the upcoming film.

    What’s the Deal With Porn?

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Noah Gomez. Is there anything really wrong with pornography? It’s fun, exciting, inventive, inspiring and prevalent! As David Amsden once said, porn is the “wallpaper” of our lives. Explicit depictions have been around since the year 79 A.D., preserved in Mount Vesuvius’s volcanic sediment covering the city of Pompeii. 2000 years later in the early ...

    The Problem With the D.C. Marijuana Law

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Jasmine Henry. Let’s talk marijuana. And let’s talk cookies. In fact, let’s talk marijuana as cookies. There are only five places in the United States where recreational marijuana can be possessed: Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Washington, D.C. As of right now, Colorado and Washington have made it legal to buy and sell recreational marijuana. ...

    Ben Meets World: ISIS and Regional Conflicts of the Middle East

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Ben Duong. 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 ...

    The Stupidity of Smart Technology

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Daniel Harrison. In a piece of news that everyone and their Tinder matches already knows about, Apple unveiled the final details of their first entry into the smart watch market, the Apple Watch.

    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 ...

    How to Avoid Losing Touch in Your Everyday Communication

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Noah Gomez. You have probably heard it a million times: good communication skills are essential for success. That seems pretty obvious, though. If you can’t exchange ideas with others, you’ll forever remain isolated from them. Whether it’s between friends, on the bus or in your next job, the ability to accurately put thoughts to words ...

    Don’t Be Scared

    This is a guest post from GainesvilleScene by Opeola Bukola, a recent University of Florida grad, local entrepreneur and founder of Gainesville Media and ForABlackGirl.com. Read more of Ope’s wise words here. Growing up is weird in the sense that sometimes it’s terrifying just to be. To be a woman is even tougher. To be a woman who has been sexualized from a young ...

    Gen X Envy and The Wonders of Social Media

    Take a moment to ignore the cries of our parents and grandparents about what is and isn’t “real music,” the angry shaking of their fists and their claims that our generation is lost to its wireless computers and soul sucking cell phones. It’s mostly bullshit. I say this because, well, we can’t really be okay with the fact that more children 12 ...

    The Beginner’s Guide to Bonnaroo

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Molly Delattre. Among the neon sea of flower crowns, 12 dollar water bottle stands and drug sniffing, undercover cops there exists a music lover’s oasis. It’s a place where the music and good vibes come first, leaving the responsibilities of everyday life and hygiene to come second (or third). You might have heard about the ...

    Win at All Costs: A How-To Guide for Arguing like an Asshole

And no, you cannot buy my vote with your fake smile. I was glad to see them go once elections wrapped up, but that relief didn’t last. As I made my way to Chick-fil-A and ...
