    Wasteland Turned Wonderland: Depot Park Breaks Ground

    Two hundred and fifty five thousand tons of contaminated soil used to rest where Ed Bielarski, GRU’s new general manager, stood this morning at the Depot Park groundbreaking ceremony. That is the equivalent of 51,000 elephants. If the fact that this much waste covered 32 acres of local land doesn’t blow your mind, maybe the fact that the city of Gainesville removed ...

    The Gator Gameday Parking Puzzle

    Gator gameday is indubitably one of the most exhilarating times of the year. If you’ve ever been to a Gator game, you can attest to the inspiring atmosphere, the feeling of community and the boundless celebration of all that it means to be a Florida Gator. Many of us have had the unfortunate (but reassuring) opportunity of attending a football game at ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. The point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken it upon ourselves ...

    Gainesville Nightlife: A Guide to Downtown

    Whether it’s UF students drunkenly complaining as they wait in hour-long lines outside of crusty midtown bars (while refusing to go anywhere else) or complacent citizens who have yet to sip a cocktail in a new location since the summer of ’88, people talk a lot of shit about Gainesville nightlife. This guide is not for those people. This guide is for the people ...

    Wake N Bake with Less Than Jake

    Everyone’s favorite holiday is quickly approaching. It’s not Christmas, not National Pizza Day and not even 4/20. It’s Wake N Bake at High Dive. Wake N Bake is an annual festival that brings together punk rock and ska legends for a weekend of killer music, good vibes and debauchery of every variety. It’s a time when Gainesville’s own Less Than Jake returns to ...

    Racism Plays Out on the VMA Stage

    As you may have seen/read/heard, things got pretty tense at the MTV Video Music Awards last night when Nicki Minaj called out host Miley Cyrus during her acceptance speech. In the midst of an already iconic acceptance speech for “Hip Hop Video” (including a flawless impression of a generic awards show speech) Nicki turned to Miley and briefly called out the host: ...

We’ve helped you survive your road trips and spring break. ...

    How Scandalous is the Clinton Email Scandal?

    Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the “Clinton Email Scandal.” Truthfully, I’m conflicted. I’m a female college student who wants nothing more than for the United States to have a female president. When the news broke headlines, I was beginning to wonder if I could trust her with the presidency or as a politician in general. I was one ...

    The Party is Over: A Senior’s Confession

    After 21 years of living, I have come to realize that there is nothing people fear more than the unknown. The unknown is life’s way of not giving you any lemons but still expecting you to run a fully functioning lemon stand. It’s a pretty sick joke. Now the joke is on me as two words echo through my head: Senior year. ...

    Straight Outta My Mind About “Straight Outta Compton”

    SPOILER ALERT When I saw the trailer for Straight Outta Compton in theaters way back when, I knew I had to see this movie. Not only did the cast look fantastic, but the situation surrounding the film couldn’t have been timelier. The movie busted right into the theme that sparked the initial media controversy surrounding S.O.C., quite literally. (There isn’t enough time in ...

    Getting Around Gainesville 101

    College is not only about figuring out where you want to go in life, it’s also about how you want to get there. And how are you supposed to do that if you don’t have a car at your disposal? I’m sure there’s some overrated metaphorical value in that question, but I don’t mean to hurl clichés at you. I meant it ...
