    Your Super Bowl XLIX Shortlist

    This is a guest post by TBScene’s Ryan Hatter. Deflate-Gate Has there been any story in sports as annoying as the deflate-gate in the past year? Sure, Michael Sam’s makeout sesh with his husband-to-be replayed for weeks. At least there’s something monumental about the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. The exploits of Johnny Football were also extremely irritating, but ...

    Pro Tips from a Gasparilla Vet

    Floats, pirate garb, beads and booze all come together in a harmonious fashion to present Tampa with the Gasparilla Pirate Festival, which is taking place Saturday. It’s a unique experience to say the least, and for those that have never had the privilege of attending it, know that you are missing out and it’s time to get to it. This pirate-themed parade ...

    Congressional Composition: Who Makes Up the 114th Congress?

    The relationship regular citizens have with Congress is in some ways the same one we had with that weird, obscure side of our extended families back in the day when we were six years old; we didn’t know most of their names, but were forced to go out and have pizza with them. We didn’t have much of an immediate say in ...

    As the name would suggest, Grit is passionate and brings a dedicated energy to the local music scene. The Nitty-Gritty Details The Tampa-based, southern styled rock n’ roll band is the brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Ricky Cagno. Originally a country band called Gainesville Grit, the group consisted of Ricky Cagno, drummer Max Rowe, bassist Jonathon Franklin and lead guitarist Ian Heausler before they ...

    Organic Vision Presents is teaming up with the JAM to bring the “electro hip-hop soul” sounds of Archnemesis to Gainesville this Friday. The eclectic jams produced by Archnemesis, otherwise known as Curt Heiny, are difficult to label. In recent interviews, Heiny has stated that he melds the flow of his sets with the vibes he picks up from the crowd. This means ...

    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 it upon ourselves ...

    Gatorade: Gainesville’s Secret Stuff

    “It’s great to be a Florida Gator.” Every student, alumnus or ACR knows this phrase all too well. It’s the most common chant in the Swamp; it whistles through the Gainesville wind. It’s literally the first thing all incoming freshman hear when the tacky Preview staffers welcome them to campus. Suffice it to say, this phrase lives in Gator lore. But what ...

    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. ...

    The horrors of rush season dawn on girls once a year to bestow a week of plastered smiles, shoes that hurt way too much and superficial conversations. Yet someone in the high heavens sent down a present (read: curse) to sorority girls of the world: Spring Rush.

Okay, maybe it wasn’t the actual circus, but it was an outlandish hybrid of an even creepier version of Cirque du Soleil and a corny ’80s movie where high school cliques exist, penny loafers are acceptable garb and the freaks have to fight ...
