Everything Everything

“You know how you finish a bag of chips and you hate yourself? You know you’ve done nothing good for yourself. That’s the same feeling, and you know it is, after some digital binge. You feel wasted and hollow and diminished.” ― Dave Eggers, The Circle To be alive in 2016 is to be exhausted. The world... Continue Reading →

Red Circle Obsession

Hairy feet so big that no shoe could fit it. An appetite so immense that no meal could satisfy it. A love of green and yellow so peculiar it defies all logic. A thirst for quiet so strong that only mind-game wizardry can affect it. And worst of all, such a desire for a tiny, circular thing that you'd go...

The Evolution of Television

Television last year might as well have been known simply as the year of Netflix.

The longer The Internship continued, the more uninterested Jack became. He hadn't heard great things about the film but his love of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson had piqued his interest enough to push play. Now, after an increasingly dull 30 minutes, Jack grew restless. Squirming uncomfortably, he desperately tried to find the perfect. Just... Continue Reading →

The Happiness Conundrum

With the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence, the pursuit of happiness became an official government mandate, a literal inalienable right. Citizens gained the right to life, to liberty and to the pursuit of their dreams and desires. Whether Thomas Jefferson borrowed this notion from Adam Ferguson's An Essay on the History of...
