Pole Dancing + Comedy = Schtick A Pole In It

My name is Jasmine and I’m a pole dancer. I know what you’re thinking: I always knew she’d end up stripping. That’s not what I said. Pole dancing is a wildly popular form of dance, sport, and exercise that is still highly stigmatized. But we’re not strippers, we keep on our clothes… (not a ton…

TV Is My Boyfriend

I’m in love for the second time. But this one just feels right. This time, TV is my boyfriend. I can’t even explain it, there’s just something about TV that I’m so drawn to! And I told myself I would never open my heart up again, but here I am. I just can’t get enough.…

What’s The Point of Survival?

I don’t get the obsession with survival. I honestly don’t. I’ve held this view for a while, but last night when just trying to stop at the grocery store to pick up a bag of rock salt what I saw was chaos. Shelves stripped bare, people running around like lunatics, traffic jam in the parking…

It’s Only Racist If You Let It

In honor of Black History Month, let me make something clear: not everything is racist. As a society, we are way beyond boy-who-called-“wolf” status.

I Need A Gimmick.

I’ve figured it all out. I figured out how to get a girl. It has nothing to do with online dating or meeting a girl through a mutual friend. I can get a girl the old fashioned way in bars, in line at the grocery store, coffee shop, I just need a gimmick. That’s all…

Miley Cyrus > Pope Francis

One of the most popular people of 2013 has been Pope Francis. He even won Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, beating out Miley Cyrus. Which is bullshit, Miley totally should have won based of the fact alone that I never beat off to the pope naked on a wrecking ball… But any who, I…

Body Shaming: A National Epidemic

If there is one thing I am tired of lately it is of this culture of body shaming that we have created. Overweight and out of shape chicks are constantly posting links to articles on Facebook showing “real bodies.” It is always a gallery full of fat chicks and implies that any woman who is…
