My list of the worst Halloween candy ever made.

My list of the worst Halloween candy ever made.
As I sit here on my ass, cramming fun size candy bars in my mouth, I’m beginning to feel a bit nostalgic. Goddamn. Halloween is just around the corner and like most holidays, it was so much better as a kid. You were free to dress up like a goof and you got a whole... Read more »

Netflix vs Hollywood

Netflix vs Hollywood
I remember when I was a teen, Blockbuster Video was the hot spot before a sleepover on a Friday night. After picking out three movies and a snack the total was like, $27. That’s a lot for a gal who was scraping by $5.15 an hour. “What a bunch of jerks,” I thought as I... Read more »

My first trip to Soldier Field as a Bills fan

“I Managed to Make it out of Soldier Field Without Getting Pelted by D Batteries.” This is what I contemplated as the title of this blog but didn’t want to come across as disparaging. Pffff, I mean, they’re Bears fans not Raiders fans. I must preface the previous statement with the fact that I spent... Read more »

World Cup madness: A brief interview with The Globe

World Cup madness: A brief interview with The Globe
The popularity of this 2014 World Cup has me mystified. Seriously, who woulda thunk ESPN would be boasting about their record setting ratings right now. For Soccer. Not American Football. Bananas. I’ll take it though! If I had to suffer through a summer with the lackluster Cubs and the mediocre Sox, I’d start playing strip-Jax... Read more »

What not to do on Facebook

What not to do on Facebook
Like the average, modern day human being, I scroll through the majestic book of face about thirty-seven times a day. It’s my top choice for internet distraction, for sure. That being said, I am overwhelmed with the ever-growing boobery that takes place on that platform. I feel Facebook has been heading down a slippery slope... Read more »

St. Patrick's Day from the bartender's perspective

St. Patrick's Day from the bartender's perspective
After an arduous Polar Vortex laden, January and a grey, abysmal February, we are now all up in March. Yes, March. The month that, thanks to St. Patrick’s Day, comes in like a drunken lion and out like a hungover lamb. While most of you are shopping for green clothing and saving your pennies to... Read more »

Matthew McConaughey: Proof that indie film is a powerful medium

Matthew McConaughey: Proof that indie film is a powerful medium
If someone were to tell me Matthew McConaughey would win an Oscar ten years ago, I would have smacked that person in the ear while shouting, “Surely you jest!” Alas, it has happened and it was well deserved. Alright, alright, alright. I know this is old news but there is something to be said for... Read more »

David Fincher in early talks to direct Steve Jobs biopic

David Fincher in early talks to direct Steve Jobs biopic
Awwwww, yea! Another Steve Jobs movie is on the way. I had heard news well over a year ago that Aaron Sorkin had a biopic in the works but it was untitled and without a director. Although it remains without a title, it seems like the tides have turned and David Fincher is in the... Read more »

Take a breather from Snapchat and stay secure

Take a breather from Snapchat and stay secure
During a recent holiday cocktail hour I found myself drunkenly explaining the glory of Snapchat to my equally inebriated family members. “It’s amaze!” I glamored. “It’s also a super fun way to stay connected and an inventive way to take selfies and doodle penises on your face.” No lie, I’ve mastered the art of drawing...

Five movies to get you into the Thanksgiving spirit

Five movies to get you into the Thanksgiving spirit
Like most adults, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays. You can catch a buzz the night before, marinate on the couch all day, eat fabulous food and share after dinner farts with loved ones. It’s also a fabulous time to catch some quality time with the boob tube. If football isn’t for you... Read more »
