You Were Right, SHH. Online Dating Does Suck.

27 Oct

Eamonn is the third member of this site to weigh in on online dating…listen.

Somebody once told me that it was impossible to eat 5 saltines in one minute. I didn’t believe them until I almost asphyxiated on shards of gluten and salt that refused to move past my uvula.   I’ve seen youtube videos of people attempting to eat a spoonful of cinnamon; those people Continue reading

CSA’s Rule and Here’s Why

21 Jun

Organic broccoli, raab, scallions, and kale with orzo!

It’s summer time and that means a lot of awesome things. No school, swimming holes, vacations, hangin’ with pals, the list goes on. This year is my first summer in New Paltz not living on a couch, so I’m already off to a great start, but there are a few things that I’m really really excited about, and my CSA is one of them.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, Continue reading

Tales of a Broke Twenty-Something Year Old: Yard Sale Edition

5 Jun

I’m sure I’m singing the tune of many when I say I’m under-employed and not doin’ so hot in the green-bags department. I’m also sure I’m not the only person who’s lost sleep over money issues, and mine probably are far less serious than some; but when I woke up from what little sleep I did have after a dream about soliciting myself outside a local Dunkin’ Donuts, I decided I needed to get a bit proactive.

Over the past week I’ve made several moves to get myself some extra cash and over the past year or so have made slight alterations to my lifestyle and the products I do (or don’t) buy, which not only saves money, but is good for a whole bunch of other reasons too. Continue reading

RIP Barney Rosset

25 Feb

Owner/publisher of Grove Press from 1951-1985 and founder of the Evergreen Review, Barney Rosset, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 89.

Rosset was a counter cultural icon and 1st Amendment revolutionary that was pegged as a peddler of smut in the 50’s and 60’s.  Rosset and Grove Press defended the publication of D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer and William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch among other works, citing their literary/artistic merit.  Decades later, those three novels Continue reading

Exit Through the Gift Shop

12 Feb

I hesitate to call this a movie review, rather I hope that it sparks some interesting discussion about Banksy and how much of a cheeky fuck he is. In addition, I hope that everybody reading this has already seen the movie, making this here article beautifully irrelevant. All that being said, let us begin.

Firstly, let us look at the name of the film: Exit Through the Gift Shop. On the surface it stands as an obvious Continue reading
