When Houston Nutt took over the Ole Miss football head coaching job, I expected them to maintain their position among the SEC as a poor man’s Alabama. I figured they would compete, and every now and then pull an upset. Unfortunately for those Rebel (I mean black bear) fans, I…Read More
I’m sensitive to a point. If I am criticized for my behavior or performance, I will take it to heart and consider ways I can improve. However, I also do not get bogged down if someone makes a joke (at my expense). One of the problems in the world today…Read More
Occupy Wallstreet has struck a chord with many in the country because of the disparity between the upper – middle – and lower classes of society. I grew up staunchly conservative; however, after getting my degree and aging a little, I have changed my outlook. Capitalism is not inherently bad….Read More
ScienceDaily (2011-10-12) — After excessively violent events, shoot ‘em up games regularly come under scrutiny. In Norway, several first-person shooter games disappeared from the market for a while after the killings. Does intense fighting on a flat screen display also result in aggressive behavior in real life? Researchers have found…Read More
I’ve noticed a lot of people have been searching to find the song that a music video was created for in Dance Moms last week. The song is It’s Like Summer by Lux. Apparently, it’s also the theme from Minute to Win It. A show I can’t really stand.
Here is an essay I did a few years ago on “A Dolls House”. It’s dry, but I got a good grade on it.
A Doll Who Wants Out
During the Victorian Era (1837-1901), women were viewed as pure and clean. Their bodies were seen as temples that should not be adorned…Read More
Well, I was having a lazy Saturday and not really sure what I would write next for my blog. I opened up my news app on my phone and saw that the California governor had signed the controversial DREAM Act into law. I said, “whoah, I wrote a paper on that three years ago.” In a nutshell, the DREAM Act gives illegal immigrants and children of illegal immigrants in-state tuition. When/If they graduate, they are granted citizenship. It makes no sense not to give them the financial support to go to school if they are capable and willing to go. Not giving them the benefit of the doubt simply limits their contributions to society and begins a perpetual cycle of working dead end jobs. I would much rather a child of an illegal immigrant get in-state tuition than a Orange County silver spoon kid who will probably go to school and screw around more than likely. Anyways, that’s the short and dirty version of a paper I wrote a few years ago. I am posting it below. Forgive me for the dryness, it was for an English 1020 class, and we had to write on immigration. Read More
I could not have scripted a better ending to the season long Maddie Ziegler show, also known as Dance Moms on Lifetime. The kids were all in LA for a music video casting call. They were told that there was a special project where all the girls would be used,…Read More
Many people have mentioned to me how harsh Abby Lee Miller is in coaching/teaching her dance students. I agree that she doesn’t sugarcoat things, but she obviously is one of the best at what she does. She is right when she says that she “wasn’t put on this world to…Read More
I recently uploaded a few clips of Lifetime’s Dance Moms because I wanted to embed the videos on my site to support my point that Cathy is an attention seeking whore. While I made the point that I wanted, I also unintentionally started getting subscribers on my youtube channel. It’s crazy…Read More
