#OBY (Others Before Yourself)


First, you had the “Rockabilly Smack You Silly Chicken Chili.” Then, there was “Salato’s Garlicky Potato and Roasted Tomato Soup.” Finally, I brought the “Classic Chicken Noodle Soup with ‘Tis the Season’ Spices.” Those were the three soups I created to win Franklin Road Academy’s First Annual “Souper Bowl,” Read more

Growing Up with Peyton


A few weeks ago, I never thought I'd see Peyton Manning take another snap, much less throw another pass or another touchdown. Much less win another playoff game. Much less defeat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots to win another AFC Championship. (Unbelievably, after all the drama, Peyton Read more

(Written by @JeremyWilson412. For more coverage of this season's The Bachelor, go here) I kept trying to write this recap on Tuesday, but every time I would get in a rhythm, Olivia kept coming in my room and asking if she could steal me for a second. Then I drove Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant


The Revenant: **** out of 4. It's easy to think of The Revenant as simply the vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio's brutally other-worldly Oscar-winning performance or as Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow-up to last year's Award-winning Birdman. In fact, as I was sitting in the theater watching Leo eat raw bison liver and sleep in Read more

Ladies, and Gentlemen who “only watch it because their girlfriend/wife does,”

Much like the desperate, last-resort-before-I-quit-men-altogether contestant would say… I’m excited to spend more time with each and every one of you here on the blog. I’m excited to see where this goes.

They’ve done it. They have officially done it.

They found a way to keep us thoroughly entertained while not even having a rose ceremony. We have officially lost our voice as the viewer. The powers that be can now do whatever they want to us.

The episode ended without any finality to it, and we were all ok with it. That’s like the Super Bowl coming down to the last minute and the refs being like, “Ok, that’s enough,” and just calling the game. Maybe not, but it’s like an exciting tennis match going to a 5th set and both players just walking off the court to a standing ovation from the fans.

Is it safe to say that this is our craziest group of girls in recent memory? And not just on The Bachelor, but like any group of at least 10 girls. We have a sociopath, a virgin, a psychopath, someone who’s never had a boyfriend… AND THAT’S JUST ASHLEY I! I used to think that you couldn’t hate someone that you don’t know, but my outlook has changed.

My sincerest apologies for the delay on this post – my real job that actually pays me money got in the way. Don’t worry, I have found a way to prevent this from happening in the future. I set up a Kickstarter page that opens every Monday, so you can login and donate to my cause up until midnight. If I have at least $5,000 raised by midnight, then I will write a recap and post it by noon on Tuesday. If not, then you can expect a recap at some random hour on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Kickstarter page can be found at:
