Do you kind of feel like we’re in the midst of a battle between good and evil? Like there are folks fighting on both sides to ensure that the world turns in their favor. I’d like to believe that you and I are fighting for the good, while BP, Fox News and Plies are fighting […]


How did this happen? Like literally. I wanna know how this happened. Or more specifically, how was this filmed? “Rather than save this baby, let me film this real quick…” Yung JOC hit me with the smoking baby last week, but I think this one takes the cake, and the ice cream. Dang parents.


The photography of Greg Williams continues to impress me. We’ve showed you his work before, and now he’s back on the scene. Maybe it’s just my bias. I’m not one to argue against pretty girls showing their boobies. But the double standard’s so crucial, and it’s oh so real. We’ve known for a while that […]

Here’s a country had the potential to turn into a just, economically stable society, geared toward making the lives of its everyday citizens livable, emerging from fascism to socialist revolution. And yet, it failed so dismally in that goal, due in large part to the poor leadership […]


While I do consider myself grateful and blessed after making it through 17 straight years in school, I feel as though there’s a lot that needs to be changed about our educational system. In short, I think it revolves around the process of learning. School makes education so incredibly painful, that no one wants to […]

I’m a firm believer that art makes society a better place. I’m also a believer that sometimes the simplest ideas can make a big difference. The folks behind the Let’s Colour Project seem to have the same thought process going on. Let’s Colour is self-described as “a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with vibrant […]

I’ve only been to New York a few times, but I know enough to say it has to be one of the best places to people-watch. From 5th Ave to Harlem, the city is full of characters of all shapes and sizes. I suppose it’s the same in any huge metropolitan area. Looking around at […]
