America was in the thick of the Bush years, the Dixie Chicks were an estrogen-fueled-country-crossover-hit away from being tried with treason, and Crash won Best Picture instead of Brokeback Mountain. There wasn’t much about America that my prepubescent-self could be proud […]

Robin Thicke Protest at BU– Too Far or Just Enough?

What really creates the controversy around Robin Thicke’s song “Blurred Lines”? Is it the lyrics that celebrate having sex with women against their will or the objectification of women in the corresponding music video? Or is it simply the desire to argue about something? This is not a new concept, for years women have been objectified […]

10 Times You Realized You Were In A Relationship With Food

1. When you were excited for Valentine’s Day, not because of the prospect of spending a romantic night with another human being, but rather because you knew on February 15th all that candy would be on sale. 2. When you got home at 2:00am and realized that going home from the bar alone doesn’t feel so lonely […]

Why ‘Girls’ is the Show of Our Generation

“I don’t mean to freak you out…but I think I may be the voice of my generation. Or at least a voice. Of a generation.” Though Hannah Horvath of the HBO comedy series Girls is definitely not meant to be taken seriously with that narcissistic line, the show she is the center of is nothing but a spot-on depiction of young adult millennials.

Swede Nothings with Brian Burns: Teenage Wasteland

Sweden is a teenaged girl. She’s moody and broody with a killer taste in music and a black-packed closet. Experience summer in Sweden—when the sun shines all day long—and then winter—when the sun sets at two in the afternoon and temperatures rob you of your nipples and all hope in the future—and try telling me […]
