Have I used this picture already? I don’t even know anymore. With the amount of shit I rip off the internet, I’m basically just sitting around waiting to get sued. Please hover over this lazy dude to see where I got him from. It only took me two years of using WordPress to figure out that you can create a title for your photographs instead of clogging up the space underneath, when you want to credit something. Yo, it’s Friday. I ain’t got a job and I ain’t got shit Read More…




Oops, I Did It Again! I Quit My Job

Quit

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s quitting. Jobs that is. I’ve quit four in the last two years alone. Well, one I got fired from after five days but they simply beat me to the punch by about a week. The other ones, I managed to hang onto for either months or years but it’s always the same with me. I start out really excited about the potential of a place and then slowly, I become frustrated with the way things are run until I’m completely miserable and Read More…




I Bought A Scanner So I Could Scan Things

Printer

Two things are happening right now. One, I’m on vacation and didn’t feel like writing a proper post right before I left and two, I bought a scanner so I could scan things and it’s been sitting in the closet next to my laundry bag for over a month. As I was packing for my trip to Florida and thinking What am I going to put on the site for Friday? it occurred to me that perhaps I could finally bust out my fancy new office equipment and save myself the time of having Read More…




Just What The Hell Is Going On With Dudes These Days?

Mustache

I don’t know about where you come from but around these parts it’s becoming increasingly difficult to walk down certain streets and not question the possibility that you may, in fact, be living in an early twentieth century mining town or New York City during the prohibition era. It’s kind of hard to articulate, so why don’t I just provide you with a couple of visuals. Here is a picture of Mulberry Street on the Lower East Side circa 1900: However, if you were to remove the wagon and all of Read More…

Today’s Slackers post is dedicated to Rachel, who posted the most awesome comment on an article I wrote last week! It would be really cool if I could direct you to it but due to evil genius’ on the other side of the planet, unfortunately that is not currently possible. I’ve been hacked! Can you believe that? Well, it wasn’t just me. There were multiple websites that were affected. My friend Lisa’s site was even held for ransom for a short period of time and when she was able to Read More…




I Know I’m Not Supposed To But I Really Really Really Like Gossiping

Gossip

As much as I miss the days when my DVR was overflowing with Oprah episodes telling me what kind of person I should be, the fact that she’s been off the air for nearly three years now (can you believe that shit? Oprah, come back!) makes me feel like it’s finally safe to talk about some things that in the Winfrey era, just wouldn’t fly. Things that were merely whispers under an “aha! moment” regime which can now be brought to light. In fact, I feel like I could start Read More…




I Asked A Silly Question And Got A Lot Of Serious Answers: What I Learned From My Fifteen Minutes Of Infamy On The Internet

Thought Catalog

What a crazy forty-eight hours.  On Wednesday, I wrote a post for Thought Catalog entitled Are People Actually Upset Over Julianne Hough Dressing Up As A Black Woman For Halloween? Its aim was to call into question what I thought might be intentionally inflammatory news coverage of the dark makeup she wore, in an effort to increase network ratings, blog traffic, social media followers, what have you. The reason I felt this way was because the stories about it made such drastic leaps in their arguments against her costume, like Read More…




Are People Actually Upset Over Julianne Hough’s Halloween Costume?

Julianne Hough

By now you may have heard about the backlash concerning actress Julianne Hough’s choice to dress up as Uzo Aduba’s character Crazy Eyes, on the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. In case you were wondering why this caused such an uproar, it’s because the white actress Hough, wore dark makeup as part of her costume in order to appear more like the black actress Aduba. And yet if you’re still wondering why this turned into such a media and Twitter shit storm, well then you’re like me and of an Read More…




How To Have A Productive Day

Productive Day

We’ve all got stuff we want to get done, right? Pretty important stuff even. Stuff that could transform our lives and turn us into happier human beings in general. Yet what do we do when it comes time to do that stuff? We close our eyes and commit to one more hour of sleep or change the channel for a couple more minutes of television. There’s a ton of menial nonsense that we allow to get in the way of pursuing the things that are most important to us and what is Read More…

It’s almost that time of year again! The day that I always insist is my favorite holiday, yet the one I’ve become increasingly ambivalent about as I get older and lazier. I can’t believe I just said that out loud. It hurts to do so. But Halloween for me is evolving into more of a source of stress than entertainment. If there was a costume fairy that would deliver an awesome get-up to my front door, complete with plans for where to wear it, that would be a different story. Read More…
