    I Need a Hero: Deconstructing the Superhero Trend

    Action-packed films with hot men in tight suits saving the world from unspeakable evil. What could be wrong with a thing like that? Nothing really. Except, you’ll notice I used the word “men” to describe the average plot of a superhero story. I’m going to preface this article with this statement: I’ve never really been into comic books. I used to read ...

    There’s No Such Thing As TMI

    This is a guest post by TampaBayScene’s Reed Gaudens. There is an inevitable moment in everyone’s life. You’ll be telling a story with either immense pride or tangible shame. You know your story won’t garner rave reviews or even a standing ovation. Instead, there is only one critique possible: “Too much information.” But is there actually such a thing as sharing too ...

    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 ...

    Hersh is Wrong About the bin Laden Raid

    After a long decade, the U.S. finally had its vengeance for 9/11. A successful Seal Team raid resulted in the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The secretive operation to infiltrate bin laden’s compound in Pakistan was controversial from the get-go — controversy helped along by accusations of leaked details of the raid and by “Zero Dark Thirty,” the dramatized, and equally controversial, ...

    Coming Home to the Purple Hatters Ball

    By GainesvilleScene’s Cole Klein and Marlee Taylor. On my way home to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, the sun was blazing over me and the wind was rushing past my car windows. All I had in mind was the family and friends that were waiting for me. Returning to Purple Hatters Ball is like celebrating holidays with the family. It’s a ...

    Interview with Random Rab at Purple Hatters Ball

    This year’s Purple Hatters Ball was the perfect platform for many artists to showcase their music and share it with all of us. GainesvilleScene was fortunate enough to get in contact with Random Rab, the man behind hypnotic tunes proven to kindle a flame within flow artists and soothe the minds of meditative listeners. Set to perform on Friday evening, Random Rab ...

    The High Price of Being Bronzed

    People do a lot to look their best, and sometimes they get a little carried away. Take a cursory look at the wide range of beauty products available on the market and you’ll agree. There are things like pheromone-laced shaving gel and skin cremes that go for more than $300 a pop. However, when it comes to the simple things one can ...

    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. ...

    ZBT-Gate: A Rebuttal

    This is a guest post by Chelsea Hazlett. Chelsea is a third-year environmental management major at UF. I’m the absolute last person to oppose the expression of opinion. However I’m the first person to admit that the article, “ZBT-Gate: Guilty Until Proven Otherwise,” did an excellent job of rubbing me the wrong way. The article provides only two sources when defending UF’s ...

    ZBT-Gate: Guilty Until Proven Otherwise

    After four years of college, countless hours at the library and a more-than-passing grade in biochemistry, one of my proudest accomplishments is that I am the owner of a Fall 2014 “Rush ZBT” T-shirt. I will wear this shirt with no reservations — despite the fact that many would consider it something to be ashamed of, in light of recent events — and ...

    On the Issues: Carly Fiorina

    Politics are confusing. With a playing field this big, it’s hard to know where each of the 2016 presidential candidates stands on the issues. But the choices these rich old people make directly impact the country we live in, so it’s important to be informed about who you’ll vote for when the election rolls around in November of 2016. That’s where I come ...

    Demystifying the “Dad Bod”

    In eighth grade I was a chubby little dude. I rocked my Ecko Unlmtd t-shirts, high top sneakers, a silver chain and spiked up hair like it was nobody’s business. I strutted the halls of Coral Springs Middle like I was hot shit because, well, I thought I was. I was confident in my “more to love” body type, going as far ...

    Baltimore Riots: Beyond the Sensationalism

    This is a guest post by Chelsea Hazlett. Chelsea is a third-year environmental management major at UF. Ah, America. The land of the free, home of the overly opinionated. The majority of us want our personal standpoint to remain unchallenged. However, welcoming controversy with a respectable level of civility gets things done and builds moderate viewpoints. Analyzing our views allows us to ...
