Today’s paper was made in my kitchen.
Walking home from class, I received an Ohio University emergency text alert stating that an armed fugitive was somewhere around Station Street and Stocker Center. I quickly brushed it off — even though I live on West Green — and continued about my day … until I went on Twitter.
Bell’s Hopslam is one of the most perfect things in existence. We love beer more than a lot of other things, but we love Hopslam even more. Hopslam’s seasonal arrival is like the Great Beer God coming to Earth, showering His (or Her) children with gloriously hoppy beer, and then going back to Heaven’s brewery.
We often build our own identity upon the current surroundings of our lives. Growing up, this is achieved through the influences of family, hometown friends, and the overall system of beliefs that comprises our hometown demographic. When we come to college, that system of beliefs is torn apart — quickly.
Even less common than girl gamers are girl game designers, but some women have managed to break through in a field often dominated by men.
Many people don’t understand the nature of tournament bass fishing, so I will briefly catch everyone up to speed.
I’ve been really lacking in ideas lately.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day might have given us a long weekend last Monday, but from where did the celebrated civil-rights leader draw his influence? King said it himself: “Christ gave us the goals, and Mahatma Gandhi the tactics.”
The goal of any business or organization is to be profitable, and college sports are no exception.
Let’s talk about Mondays. Everyone is bound by law to hate Monday because it’s the first day of class and work, and even though we are taught by people wiser than us that we should embrace learning and work passionately, we hate doing both.
To this day, I’m still not entirely sure how I ended up as the senior music supervisor of the popular television show Glee. I’m a comedy writer whose grasp of music goes as far as singing “Sexy and I Know It” to myself in the shower every morning before breaking down and weeping; nothing in my skill-set made me ideal for the position. Somehow, though, FOX decided to give me the job, probably because the other applicants kept going… let’s call it “missing.”
Congratulations, America! We have already successfully embroiled the White House in controversy before President Barack Obama has even had enough time to properly start his second term.
Let’s face it: There’s nothing that can be done to the Star Wars franchise that George Lucas didn’t do himself.
North Korea announced Thursday its plans for a third nuclear test as a result of U.N. comments that the country’s last missile launch was banned activity.
There’s this girl I know who drives to Columbus every weekend to see her boyfriend. Funny, you go to college with the expectation that weekends will become your time to live the memories you’ll be thinking of in the future. The people you meet, the parties you’ll go to — all part of the giant repertoire of things you’re looking for while venturing from home.
The debt clock should have one of those seizure warning thingies that are shown at the beginning of video games. There are so many flashy numbers with so many important things to say. I’m sure that, somewhere out there, a Nobel-worthy economist sees the next global market crisis through the gazillion changing digits.
Smelling the fresh Folgers, tying on your favorite crankbait, loading up the gear and heading to the lake, headlights aglow — mornings preluding a fishing trip on the outside might look ever so shallow, but to the fisherman, there is intrinsic nature to the routine.
Today, we are going to talk about a beer that is quintessentially Athens. Not only is it brewed at everyone’s favorite Midwestern brewpub, Jackie O’s, but it is their No. 1 beer. On a busy night, Jackie O’s can and will sell literally kegs of this stuff. On a great night, they sometimes run out.
Let me tell you something about people and relationships.
Nerds like me know that Razer, a popular video game accessory company, does not mess around. If you aren’t familiar, just know that it is a powerhouse and its products are gorgeous pieces of technology. At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it unveiled its newest project: the Razer Edge gaming tablet. It gained attention from gamers everywhere and swept up the Best of CES Award (I would give it an award too, but I’m not quite as powerful).
