Watch: ’The Daily Show’ absolutely nailed what it’s like to be a woman on campus today 

James Madison University joined the ever-growing list of U.S. colleges that have grossly mishandled sexual assault and rape cases last week when a young woman claimed that the school punished the three men who assaulted her by expelling them — after graduation.

Jon Stewart echoed the perplexed outrage of many on The Daily Show last night when he asked, “Wait a minute, ‘expelled upon graduation?’ Isn’t that… graduation? … What the fuck? … Clearly, universities are not making their campuses safe for women.”

Deadly accurate.

Hands down best maze I’ve been to in La La Land. Fantastic. Will be back next year. Toots worth well over the $3 entrance fee. (at Sherwood Scare)

A Walk Through Art History


I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture’s art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object.

Conveniently, I was able to use these designs as the concentration section of my AP Studio Art portfolio and received a score of a 5! 

 I possess full federal copyright of these designs.

"Adapted from Tim Tharp’s young adult novel, the 2013 Sundance hit The Spectacular Now captures the insecurity and confusion of adolescence without looking for tidy truths. “Sutter Keely (Miles Teller, 21 & Over) lives in the now. A high school senior, he’s the life of the party, loves his job at a men’s clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he’s never far from his supersized, whisky-fortified 7UP cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky (Shailene Woodley, The Descendents) hovering over him. Not a member of the cool crowd, she’s different: the “nice girl” who reads science fiction and doesn’t have a boyfriend. She does have dreams, while Sutter lives in a world of impressive self-delusion. And yet they’re drawn to each other. Young actors rarely portray teens with the maturity that Teller and Woodley display, and they are phenomenal together. Funny, compassionate, and poignant, James Ponsoldt’s third feature again demonstrates his ability to lay bare the souls of his characters.” — Sundance Film Festival. Director James Ponsoldt in person!
Dir. James Ponsoldt, 2013, digital presentation, 100 min.
