Love in a Meat Market

October 4, 2011

I’m of a belief that romantic activity is meant to be private. This isn’t out of some degree of prudishness or anything. I’m not offended by what other people might discuss of their private lives or their sex lives or whatever, that’s their prerogative. Just don’t expect me to join in. I can’t help but […]

Sports is entirely cut and dried. There’s a winner and a loser every single time.

Some Things are Worth the Wait

August 25, 2011

I have to admit that this month’s theme was a problem for me. The only thing I could come up with when presented with “Instant Gratification” was a ridiculous rant about how the instantaneous nature of modern technology has actually degraded interpersonal interactions and society at large. What interested me instead was a dichotomy of […]

The Summer of the Superhero

July 30, 2011

In the past few years, as our economy plummets and political bickering creates apathy among the general population, I’ve noticed an odd phenomenon, the rise of the superhero, or comic book movie. In the interest of full disclosure, I am a 33-year old comic book reader. The summer of 2011 might be the apex of […]

The Tailor’s Open Mic

July 27, 2011

In honor of this month’s theme, and also due to my complete lack of anything cohesive to write at the moment, I’m going to channel my inner stand-up comedian and share some random observations: This country is going to default on the national debt.  Why?  Because both parties are too busy blaming one another for […]

Love in a Time of Dysfunction

June 27, 2011

Sure, summer’s supposed to be that time of year where everyone is hanging out in nice weather and shit, but while we’re all doing that, the people in charge of the country are drifting farther and farther apart, and the average person suffers for it.

Best of 30POV: Tiger Woods is Guilty, but So are You

May 28, 2011

“Best Post Written about Our Generation’s Remember Where You Were When THAT Happened Moment” Okay, so we don’t have any JFK’s or MLK’s, but–as the Tailor aptly points out–we {did} have a serious martyr on our hands. Tiger Woods is Guilty but So are You* By this point, you’d have to be hiding under a […]

The Power of Cooking

April 29, 2011

As I approach the one year anniversary of my relocation to Wisconsin, I can’t help but look back at the ways my life has changed since I left my home state of Connecticut. I’m engaged to be married, something I never would have expected to happen in my life. I’m searching for a job, which […]

The Problem with Blind Faith

March 28, 2011

In my experience, everyone who identifies themselves as an atheist tends to have some kind of negative experience with organized religion that makes the individual say “Forget it.” In my case there was no such epiphany. In fact, there was…absolutely nothing. I wasn’t raised wih any kind of religion. My parents, or any member of […]
