    On the Issues: Jim Webb

    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 when the election rolls around in November of 2016. That’s where we come in. No frills, no ...

    Ben Meets World: The Iran Nuclear Deal

    Headlines have blazed with news of a nuclear deal with Iran. The full text of the deal wasn’t even released yet and politicians had already started to praise it as diplomatic brilliance or dismissed it as the deal that would doom America and empower Iran. Since the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Iran has been the enemy of the United States. Ruled by ...

    Hellzapoppin in Downtown Gainesville

    A middle-aged woman wrapped her arm around her wife as a blonde pinup performer stood above the two, spitting fire past her perch on stage Monday night. The pinup, Tess LaCoil, took a shot of Smirnoff and daintily pointed a lit poker to her mouth. She exhaled. “My blood boils every time she does that,” Master of Ceremonies Bryce “The Govna” Graves ...

    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.

    This is a guest post by TampaBayScene’s Jon West  Dear people who use texting abbreviations far too often, Why are you doing this to me? Like most Millennials, I text fairly often.

    Citrus Greening and The Fate of Florida’s Oranges

    This is a guest post from TallahasseeScene’s Grant Sennott It is no secret that oranges are an integral part of the average Floridian’s life. Growing up, they were that essential component that made any breakfast instantly better. Now when we see them on license plates, it’s a handy “this guy is prone to driving like an asshole” disclaimer. At work, they’re a healthy, convenient and ...

    How Caitlyn Jenner Won The ESPY

    “Trainwreck” Sucked

    Man oh man, where the fuck do I begin? For starters, let me say that I now respect Amy Schumer less because of “Trainwreck” — not that she gives a rat’s ass, otherwise she wouldn’t have let this pile of cinematic excrement go anywhere past the cutting-room floor, but yeah. My respect for her has diminished. Let me explain why before you ...

    Barre Forte Brings Ballet Bods to Gainesville

    A trailblazer was born on July 24, 1969. Her name was Jennifer Lynn Lopez, and (I presume) she weighed at least 25 pounds…cause of dat ass. J.Lo, or as I like to call her, the Patron Saint of Booty, fearlessly pioneered the art of curvy behinds, paving the way for newcomers like Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Jen Selter and, most recently, me.
