I work in a pretty square environment. Suit and tie every day. Everyone uses PCs. What you would expect the behind the scenes departments of a bank to look like.
So in order to keep things in my particular office more cultured and more fun, I listen to music throughout the day with this little set-up. Read more
Growing up in an environment where you are constantly being taught things in a community where you are constantly pressured to conform creates moments where one inevitably questions everything. You might question why you are in the environment in the first place, or why you follow what every other person in the environment is doing. You start wondering and coming up with answers as to how or why something is done. OR, you might even ask yourself if it is okay to question these things. Read more
TERRIFYINGTIERRA is GONE! Her parents told her not to let anyone take her sparkle, and she went ahead and took it herself! SweatySean sent her packing, even though he was crazy about her—because that makes perfect sense! This week we’ll do the top 5 Tierra moments from this week after reminding you about the other forgettable things that happened.
(No Sparkle, Plenty of Cleavage-From Gossip Cop!)
WhiteLesley got sent home, after it became painfully obvious that she and Sean were involved in some sort of bro-ship, even though she said she was falling in love with him.
Catherine cried when WhiteLesley got sent home, which was weird, because we thought she liked Sean.
Sean still loves LiabilityLindsay, which nobody in the whole world understands. Read more
The best thing that Justin Timberlake could have done for himself and his brand was to NOT make music…
Because now that he is putting out a new album, his first in nearly seven years, the entire world is ready to bow down at his feet and proclaim him the new King of Pop. And they probably should because he deserves it. Read more
I got into a car with a salesman for a test drive one afternoon. As we took off, I asked him where I should go—basically wondering if there was a usual route. The salesman, let’s call him Jose, told me “take a right out of the parking lot because there’s a Wendy’s down the street.” An odd statement? Yes, but this was just the beginning. Read more
Well, dear readers and Feeny Fanatics, I’m back. Feeny Fridays are back… but my new posts about the wisdom of George Feeny in the world of Mr. Matthews, Ms. Lawrence, and the rest of our favorites from TGIF have a new look and a new purpose! Since we last convened to analyze Mr. Feeny’s wisdom from season 1 of Boy Meets World, the world we know has changed forever. For the better. Nay. For the best.
Scandal isn’t great television, if by great you mean “top-tier” or “Emmy-worthy”. It doesn’t belong in the same breath as Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones. There are a lot of shows on television that are better-made than Scandal. I watch some of them. However, I’d rather watch Scandal than a good number of those “greater” shows.
But, if by great television, you mean addicting, entertaining, and a lot better than you want it to be, Scandal is indeed great television. Scandal is my new guilty pleasure show. It was a sweeping addiction that happened as my wife and I watched the first 19 episodes of the show in 15 days. (We may or may not have Netflix binge-watched all 7 episodes of season 1 in one day!) Am I even a little ashamed at how much I love Scandal? Yes. But am I counting down the hours until the next episode on tonight? Definitely.
Boy howdy am I excited to be an Ole Miss Rebel today. Yesterday we inked what many think is the best football recruiting class in the university’s long history, and hopefully that is just the beginning of a rise to prominence (read: not sucking too bad) in the SEC.
But as I look over how my day progressed yesterday, it makes me stop and wonder about the recruiting process as a whole. How it unfolds, how it affects the players, coaches, fans, and how it is intensified by the domination of Twitter. Read more
Disclaimer: This column is not directed at any one individual I know. I hate all of you equally.
Ever had a bad day? Of course you have. We all have them now and then. It often feels like this time of year – in the cold, cloudy winter months – those days are more common. We see the sun less, the temperatures are much lower and people in general seem annoyed they had to leave the comfort of their warm beds to go into the working world daily.
When this type of day rolls around, the natural reaction is to have others around to bathe in this misery with you, and the easiest way for that to happen these days is in social media. Let’s scroll through the status updates: Read more
1. “I appreciate you.”
Sean said this to WhiteLesley in an intimate moment on a bench (duh, like, all the intimate moments in this show happen on benches), and it made everyone across the world cringe. This is something that, say, your boss says to you. Or your mom. Or your first-born child (God forbid). Not your bachelor lover. I know SweatySean totally digs WhiteLesley’s completely overwhelming level of NORMALITY, but being “appreciated” has never been code for: let’s get married and have lots of post-marital sex and babies.
