Booze Control: 30 Days Alcohol Free
In an attempt to cleanse my body of its sometimes-excessive behavior, and for a much-needed moment of clarity, I challenged myself to give up alcohol for the month of November. This challenge derived from a yearning to explore my relationship with the substance, find comfort participating in social gatherings soberly, and to better understand my true self unmasked by the superficial layers alcohol tends to dress on. This isn’t about alcoholism, but more so the largely uncharted territory of total sobriety. Let’s take a minute to look at a popular phrase that comes along with American partiers, “Let’s get fucked...

But it’s not like they just had a bike rack, they had a full on Bike Valet where we left our bikes, picked up our free pass and some peace of mind, and entered the wonderful world of Green.

Election 2012 and Beyond: Voting to Spread the Sparkle
It’s that time of the year again!  That time when Americans are bombarded by generic promises cooed through shiny white politician teeth.  Also a time when America’s top dog and his biggest rival play highschool mean girls- talking mad shit behind each others backs (on national television).  Every time we turn on the TV, we can’t help but be reminded how much America sucks, and that it’s all home boy’s fault; or, conversely, how much America is going to suck if dude man takes the big seat.  It’s interesting to see how campaigning has evolved in our lifetimes from commercial...
