I got married a couple weeks before the election ...no big deal. I mean, getting married to my true love was a big deal, but the ceremony itself was small, sweet, and as stress-free as possible. A pop-up wedding, you could say. We were aiming for a holiday elopement but big feels around the election [...]

Guide matter anymore? What does one need to find programming worthy of eyeball gluing? There are so many channels that a weekly bible and the blind faith that there’s something actually worth watching have long been de rigueur. In the last year, I’ve found myself asking for recommendations. Two Netflix series occupy my cue along [...]

It’s time to get real folks. On December 21st, 2012 the world might end or there may be some kind of spiritual transformation. Hopefully we’ll just all evolve into more enlightened beings with the ability to show basic respect for other humans. The thing is, in order to become enlightened we have to try. In [...]
