Big News: Sunlight Cures Depression

Ladies and gents, I have reached a most stunning conclusion this past weekend: depression does not exist! I stepped outside the other day into the warming sunlight and felt a most peculiar sensation. Hope? Joy? Happiness? I’m not quite sure, but it certainly felt good, much better than I’d felt in a long time. I […]

Voter Disenfranchisement: Reps vs. Dems

Many people believe that their vote doesn’t matter. “They’re right of course,” said Sara Serrano, very hip TU republican. “The Man’s trying to get you to spend all day making a line to cast your ballot for a rigged system.

One grande latte, hold the bureaucracy

A simple question leaves me cutting through a jungle of red tape. I’m nearly there, dear reader. Answers are hard to come by in this present climate.

Why is no one asking me about my screenplay?

I’m far too talented to be treated like this. This is absolutely ridiculous. I’ve been sitting in this coffee shop for over an hour now, hunched over my Macbook Air, sipping this lavender infused cold brew, and not one person here has had the common decency to ask me about my screenplay. I chose this […]
