An Asian Goddess

Props: Karrueche Tran. So I definitely got to give props to Karrueche Tran. Let’s just call her “K-Tran”. K-Tran is an American model, and more notably Chris Brown’s new girlfriend.  I have to shout out this woman due to my little run-in with her this weekend in the VIP area of a club here in…

A Man and His Cars

Props: My Cars. For most people, their vehicle is only worth the ride to where ever they are going. Point A to point B. There is also a portion of us who rely on our vehicles to be an extension of our personality. Often, these people work on their cars to make them faster in…

Here are some supporting characters who deserve our props: 5. Maximus – Tangled He is a handsome, brave, funny crime-fighting horse that can understand humans. Enough said. 4. Tinker Bell – Peter…

The Internet’s Best Kept Secret

Is there any worse punishment than your 8:30 am train commute to work? No, seriously, is there? I’ve read Dante over and over again, and I still consider Judas a lucky man. At least the ninth layer had central air. Like that last stupid freshman smashing his holier-than-thou attitude through the last call crowd at Kilroys, I sit smashed between two people sweating so much they look like they just came from the splash zone at Sea World.

Heroes Get Remembered, But Ledges Never Die

I want to preface this post with the information that I’m 5 beers deep and I’m not certain I have sobered up from last night. That’s your fair warning.

There’s a lot of people that deserve props in my life. But I’m not going that direction. The place I want to give a shout out to is an eight foot concrete slab in Bloomington, Indiana behind Woodburn Hall. I’ll start where all good stories start; the middle.

An Ode to Jockamo Pizza

I believe that pizza is like sex, but better. There is some sort of connection my body has with lactose and gluten that really revs my engines. I don’t know if it is the 1/16 Italian I have in my blood, or maybe it was growing up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but few things in life can imitate the Art of the ‘Za.

Sign Acrobats

In life, there are a variety of changes in many ways. Our streets can be bathed in the whitest of snow or blurry with waves of heat. Conversely in our own lives, one moment you be seen walking down the well-lit golden path to success, and in the blink of an eye, disappear down a dark corridor with an outlet known only to those who dare to wander down the path less-traveled.
