Moving 2,068 Miles From Home

Props: Uncertainty, Spontaneity, and California Burritos. There comes a time in every college student’s four year binge (longer for graduate students…or victory lappers) where he emerges from his blackout, figuratively and literally, and he realizes that college doesn’t last forever. For a lot of college students, this epiphany occurs around 4:00 AM after having defied science by…

Shout Out to My Dogg

Props: My Dogg. Most of us have basic human needs, seeing as most of us are humans. I say most of us because I’m almost certain that there are extraterrestrial beings living among us in human hosts, but I won’t point any fingers at Dennis Rodman or Lady Gaga. Surviving an eminent alien infiltration is…

Then, mix in bare chest cannons as far as the eye can see, some life-threatening sun burns, and strangers that feel as though they have known each other their entire lives and what do you get? The Indianapolis 500.

By the Common Man, For the Common Man

If you haven’t been on BarstoolSports, you’re doing it wrong. Today I’m giving props the one one of the most consistently funny websites on the net. Founded by Dave “El Presidente” Portnoy, BarstoolSports (or simply Barstool) started in 2003 as a four-page black-and-white newspaper that featured gambling spreads, sports schedules, and fantasy-league stats primarily focusing on…

Keep the Songs Alive

“True music, true art, it chooses you. It lights a fire inside of you that you can’t explain. It lives in your heart, your mind, and your soul. We are the guardians of its creation, And it is the beacon of our inspiration. The music survives if we keep the songs alive.” -Alesana Leave it…
