When I first saw a post about these, I thought it was a joke. To my horror, I learned that this is a real product that people can buy and consume. In fact, it was released last year and is making another appearance on store shelves! My friend was very excited about this, as he... Continue Reading →
This debate about childhood vaccines has been going on for at least the last 15 years, but probably longer than that. Those who haven't yet heard about the debate: Anti-vaxx parents believe that vaccines are harmful and/or unnecessary, so they refuse to vaccinate their children against anything. Polio, measles, smallpox... anything. They rely on "herd... Continue Reading →
Some mornings are amazing. You wake up before your alarm, feeling refreshed and ready to take on the challenges of the day. Other mornings, you feel like you woke up in Gilead, a piece of property owned by men with all autonomy stripped from you. If you live in Alabama, Texas, Missouri, Ohio, or Georgia,...

Today on Music Video Monday, "Buffalo" by Stump. This is how American tourists were perceived by some in Great Britain. Not much has changed. Don't mention hamburgers, Harry.

Today on Music Video Monday is "Frontier Psychiatrist" by The Avalanches. https://youtu.be/qLrnkK2YEcE Just hit "play". This is one of the best things on the internet. Can you imagine the casting for this video? "By the way, we're all on LSD." That's how I imagine it all went down.
Today on Music Video Monday, "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga. https://youtu.be/qrO4YZeyl0I I was never a fan of Lady Gaga until I saw this music video.
Today on Music Video Monday, "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails https://youtu.be/PTFwQP86BRs This video used to scare the shit out of me when I was younger. Now, it's basically my life in a nutshell. Disembodied pig parts. Nudity. BDSM. Trent Reznor suspended in midair. Or just nudity, really.
SNOW I grew up in sunny, hot, and putrid South Florida where it was an oppressive 90°F with 100% humidity almost all year long with approximately two weeks of relief in the middle of winter, where it could plummet to an arid 50°F. (At this point, we would don our parkas and thick gloves. Floridians... Continue Reading →
