stuff about me

I have a Masters in Cinema Studies from NYU. I am opinionated, and I think that I know far more than most people (keyword being "think"). Today, I'm in the fabulous fast paced world of Advertising and I think that it's safe to say, I'm on my way.

Charmin' the pants off of Charm City one day at a time.

staff:

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

This is my accapella group in practice singing titanium. I think we sound pretty good.

Cutie.

I am boycotting the NFL

There are so many reasons to never watch another football game again.

So here’s the strategy: I will not buy merchandise.

  • I will not attend games.
  • I will not attend restaurants to watch these games
  • I will not go to parties for these games
  • I will not talk about these games

So, why am I doing this? Here are some of the reasons:

1. It is a barbaric game that barely features any athletic ability. The strategy is to hurt people, and get points.

2a. They don’t care about their fans.

2b.  They especially don’t care about women

3. By allowing criminals of any capacity to play, they are condoning bad behavior. They are teaching a generation that even if you break the law, you can be rewarded with money, and maybe early onset Alzheimer’s.

4. Washington DC football/football fans. (I will not say the name of your stupid team.) 

5. They treat their biggest fans (cheerleaders) like dog crap. Nah, it might be worse than that. 

6. It’s called football. It’s not played with your foot. 

7. They think they are above the law…

Why don’t we show them the power of our money, and stop watching this idiotic sport. If we stop caring, they may change their ways.

If you think that football is worth your time, your money, your stress, your passion… I seriously urge you to take a good look inside, and evaluate your life. Find happiness in yourself, instead of in a team and an organization, that couldn’t give two shits about you.

VOTE

I’ve been told the following: “I would vote for Heather Mizeur, but I don’t want to waste my vote.”

To that I say, don’t think that way! 

Even if she doesn’t win, helping Heather score a larger percentage of the vote can have an impact… whether that’s in 4 years from now, or even as an influence on Brown or Gansler’s (hope not) policies. Do the right thing, and don’t waste your vote by voting for someone you don’t believe in. 

If Eric Cantor can lose, Heather Mizeur can win!

Yawn.

Yawn.

This is how I woke up today.
