    The Plight of a GDI

    Every year, the week leading up to homecoming feels like social life in Gainesville shuts down. Everyone stays in the week before preparing for the debauchery the following week promises with their partner fraternity/sorority. It is a week full of Instagram photos from the parties with super clever and original captions like, “Killing the woodser game,” and Snapstories from pre-games and bars ...

    “American Horror Story” Takes Terrifying Clowns to A New Level

    SPOILER ALERT: Do not proceed if you’re not caught up with the current season of “American Horror Story.”  If you’re anything like me, there are only two seasons in the year. “American Horror Story” season and waiting for “American Horror Story” season. Let me tell you friends, my favorite time of the year is back! And for my fellow horror buffs out ...

    Is Laverne Cox Selling Out?

    Last Tuesday night, against my better judgment, I tuned in to MTV’s “Faking It,” a show about two teenage girls who pretend to be lesbians because it’s — get this — “cool” and will help make them “popular” and “desirable.” The show itself has been around for a while so this rant isn’t directed at the series. It’s directed at the episode’s ...

    Pop of the Week: Pistachio Coconut

    Pistachio Coconut Pistachio, coconut, salt, spice and everything nice. These ingredients come together to create the Hyppo’s Pistachio Coconut popsicle, the living proof that some things do, in fact, taste better than being skinny feels. This pop is worth being fat for, so take that, Kate Moss. But even that isn’t a worry. Aside from being almost unbearably delicious, this popsicle is ...

    The Power of 21

    Every year on Dec. 31, we huddle around the TV and count down to midnight and the start of the New Year. We start drinking hours before midnight, have huge parties or go out to clubs we can’t afford, all for the sake of flipping the calendar. Like every holiday, though, nothing really happens when the clock strikes. We go through all ...

    Confessions of a Workaholic

    Do they have AA meetings for people who are addicted to work? Or can hyper-productive people not find the time to attend such gatherings? In any case, I’m using you all as my support group. I’m 22, and I work three jobs. I guess my work-aholism began when I got my first “real” job during my sophomore year of college. It quickly ...

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville.

    Learning Life from the Violin

    I would like to say I always had a burning desire to play violin, but when I picked one up in fifth grade, it was purely as a joke. (Shout-out to bribing kids to pick up stringed instruments by letting them leave class for an hour to go to Strings Class.) Music has had the biggest unintentional influence on my life. I ...

    Gainesville’s Asian Sensations

    Although the average hungover UF student might consider a Bento box an authentic Asian feast, here at GainesvilleScene, we want to expand culinary horizons. We recognize “Asian food” is a pretty broad food category as the cuisines of East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and Middle Eastern regions all have their own unique characteristics. But in little ol’ Hogtown, sometimes we need a little simplicity. Let this collaborative ...
