    Behind the Scene: Daniel from Arrow’s Aim Records

    We live in a transactional world. From the daily debit swipe for goods and services to the daily exchange of emotions and conversation, we are always trading back and forth between each other.  Although it’s easy to sign your receipt and move on your way, GainesvilleScene wants to dig a little deeper. Behind the Scene, our new series, gives you a glimpse into the ...

    On Being Polite To Women

    Tipsy and tired, I walked onto a bus with no open seats. My heart sank. But then a man gave up his seat for me, waving for me to take his place. I was incredibly grateful in my not-so-sober state that this had occurred, and I took the seat happily and overheard the man’s wife telling their children that their dad had given ...

    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    Alas, Thanksgiving is a week away. This means stretch pants, stuffing your face, awkward encounters with relatives and getting incredibly wine drunk with your mom for three days straight. Let these tunes help you cruise through the weekend and help you stay sane on the drive back to your hometown. Hey, maybe even throw it on at the family gathering and watch grandpa ...

    We Are Who We Are

    “Describe yourself in three words.” Chances are you’ve been asked to do this by professionals several times. For as many ways as I can argue for whichever three words I choose — usually “intelligent, energetic and ethical” — I can just as easily argue against them. Although I guarantee that’ll be the most memorable thing your interviewer experiences all week, try to resist the ...

    Rivalries Aside, Seminole Nation Unites

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Chaise Bishop. Everything about me screams UGA. I park my car on Florida State’s campus with a Georgia front tag. I proudly wear my Bulldog hoodie around campus. I am in a constant battle with FSU football fans about my loyalty to the SEC. I have been called a traitor. I have been called out ...

    Pop of the Week: Pumpkin Pie

    Pumpkin Pie Imagine opening your fridge the day after the year’s biggest feast and finding the last piece of pumpkin pie waiting there for you. The Hyppo’s Pumpkin Pie popsicle is that last glorious piece of pie. Its creamy consistency and hints of cinnamon take you to a place filled with family, thanks and overeating. Despite the chilly weather, it’ll warm your ...

    Scene and Heard: The Savants of Soul

    Background The Savants of Soul are a genre-melding energetic soul band intricately peppered with the zest of funk, the spice of modern R&B and the gentle smoothness of classic Motown styles. “We’re based off of 1950s, 1960s and 1970s soul music so we kind of use the whole Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Motown, The Supremes, those kind of troupes, and we kind ...

    I Went to Coliseum Sober and This is What I Saw

    It feels like my entire high school graduating class now goes to Florida State University. When our school paper published the “college map” senior year, the list of people going to FSU outnumbered any other school by, well, a lot. At least 150 people said they were going to FSU, plus all the people who said they were going to TCC, plus ...

    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. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken the task ...

    Operation Plan B: Switching Majors

    I come from a family in which everyone is good at math. Dad is a mechanical engineer, and he thinks numbers are the whisperings of God. Mom laughs it off whenever someone brings up her math abilities. She went to veterinary school, studied a shitload of chemistry and by default, a shit ton of math. She actually does math very well, but ...

    The White House Shifts Focus on Sexual Assault Discussion

    One of my co-workers recounted to me last week a story about her young daughter having her skirt and shirt lifted up by two boys in her class while at the playground. That was sufficiently disturbing to me, but more shocking than the boys’ action was that they were never reprimanded. Her daughter’s teacher doubted whether the incident actually took place and ...

    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a sub-par 3-4-1 Long Island at Cantina every night or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore. We’ve helped you survive your road trips and spring break, ...

    Never thought I’d say this, but wow, thanks the heavens: Football season is nearly over. If your organs are as overworked and underloved as mine are, you probably agree with me. But it ain’t over until it’s over. So play these jams with your shower beer, and be school-spirited and sports-lovin’ and whatnot. Featured photo courtesy of: Wired ...
