Two Things: I Have a Love/Hate Relationship With Twitter. And We Have a Really Shitty Way of Discussing Social Media in This Country – My Take

So, a few months ago I made a realization. It came after I analyzed my morning routine one day. I'm sad to say that I, like most detached 20-somethings, immediately check my phone when I wake up in the morning. I don't just check any messages or emails I may have though—I check Twitter. Truthfully, … Continue reading Two Things: I Have a Love/Hate Relationship With Twitter. And We Have a Really Shitty Way of Discussing Social Media in This Country – My Take

Coffee (Yup, the Whole Thing is Really Just About Coffee) – My Take

So, I don't really know how I ended up here. And I don't mean on this earth because public school health class took care of that mystery a long time ago. Ah, to be young again.

My Hottest Take: In 2016 Chris Gethard, Jason Mantzoukas, and Paul Scheer Gave Us The Single Greatest Television Episode of the Past Decade

It's almost impossible to overstate the magnitude of the transformation that television has undergone since the start of the 21st century. Shows like The Sopranos, The Wire, The Office, Chappelle's Show, Survivor, Lost and many others changed television forever in the first decade of this century. But, 2010s television certainly met—and quite possibly even exceeded—the heights that the small screen reached from … Continue reading My Hottest Take: In 2016 Chris Gethard, Jason Mantzoukas, and Paul Scheer Gave Us The Single Greatest Television Episode of the Past Decade

How Celebrity Killed the Movie Star – My Take

What Happened to Movie Stars? It's a fairly well-known fact that movie stars are no longer the primary catalyst behind a film's box office success like they have been in previous decades.

“Polite” People Can Still Be Assholes – My Take

Just because you're polite, doesn't mean you're not a piece of shit. Throughout all of our lives, we have been told to do certain things because they are "polite."

Stop Identifying Yourself By What Generation You Are A Part Of – My Take

As we're all quarantined away in our respective homes, I've found that I really spend a majority of my time thinking about the same few things.

We’re All Dumb, So Let’s Just Be Quiet For Like Five Minutes – My Take

I think what I'm really trying to say can … Continue reading We’re All Dumb, So Let’s Just Be Quiet For Like Five Minutes – My Take

Dear Over-Planners: You Suck and Everyone Hates You – My Take

Many of the most memorable nights of my life were nights that were unplanned, nights that diverged from their original plan, or nights that were loosely planned the day-of.

Do People Actually Even Have Hobbies Anymore? – My Take

Most Things That Are Supposed To Be Fun Actually Suck – My Take

“You’re Not Actually Having Fun, You’re Just Drunk” As I’ve grown a little older, I have started to realize that everything in society that’s supposed to be fun actually sucks.

Dating Apps Suck and Are Probably Doing Weird Shit To Our Brains – My Take

I’ve deleted and redownloaded Tinder more times than I’d like to admit. I know that particular experience is not unique to me.

No, Marvel Movies Did Not Ruin Hollywood – My Take

If you’ve ever been on film twitter, or the Youtube comment section of a film review/commentary channel, or talked to Martin Scorsese, you may have heard the idea that Marvel is a problem for Hollywood.
