JERKcast episode 4 is available for stream directly from jerkmagazine.net or you can listen/download here!

This week the cast rants about the things they hate about a school they all love. Lakota describes her run in with rowdy freshmen dissing her sorority sisters. Maybe Charlie could have helped her with his intimidating style of tattoos and tough clothing. But is he really an SU student since he has no clue where Kimmel is? Julia is kind of out of the action since she spends her life at Bird, which is always a distracting place with people skyping instead of studying. After finishing up with wondering where Taco Bell went and why freshies wear cocktail dresses to class, the crew reads and responds with helpful advice to some fan emails.

We record Monday nights, so make sure to get your fan mail, hate mail, stories, suggestions, corrections, and all that good stuff sent to us by then – podcast@jerkmagazine.net

While many Newhouse students are spending their summer breaks interning in New York City or Los Angeles, junior television, radio and film majors Josh Eisenfeld and Michael Armour are trailing a band on their summer tour.  But before you fantasize about an S.U. version of Almost Famous, you should know that this tour is throughout villages in Mozambique and the band has a much larger goal than rock stardom.  Head over to the Jerk website to find out what the hell these guys are doing and how they convinced Chancy Nancy to shell out the big bucks.

The “Putting on Condoms for Dummies” book will soon go dusty on the shelves when more people hear of this new,” innovative” product. Condoms. With. Handles…or strips for that matter that aid you in seamlessly putting a condom on. If you don’t believe me watch the video or check out the site, http://www.sensiscondoms.com (awkward sex position animations included). Your mind will officially be blown. No more fumbling hands, awkward moments, or moments wasted with these bad boys. You tear the condom out of the package, place it on the package, and pull the strips on the sides and BAM. And you’d think simple tasks couldn’t get any easier. Soon we’ll be able to visualize that a condom is on and it’ll appear from thin air.

Some of us think the daily news is dry, lifeless, and overall not very entertaining but what if the reporter was naked?

The “Naked News” has 100 posts total. This site gives you news about headlines anywhere from the Japan nuclear crisis to Ford recalls. Women wearing only bikinis literally feed you news reports. And of course, for a fee you can view these reports done completely in the nude.  From the reports I watched (for reporting purposes only!) there was validity in the news I was receiving. But I doubt this holds true for the more, “naked,” reports.

I don’t know about you but staring at a half naked woman dishing the daily ditties only seems like a short leap to a man, (or woman’s), fulfilled fantasy. Check it out for yourself!

It’s been almost 20 years since the first release of Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis.  Over the years, the cute blue critter we all know and love has gone through many changes.  He converted from 2D to 3D in Sonic Adventure, eventually got an evil counterpart (Shadow), and then had a bunch of really shitty games from around 2003 to now.  That being said, the guys at Sonic Team are planning a new game for the hedgehog called Sonic Generations.

Last week, a big issue erupted about J.Crew’s creative director Jenna Lyons. Her ascent to the top of the design ladder at the company has been well documented and praised, especially since she is responsible for J.Crew’s new found ascension in trendiness.  The controversy is about a J.Crew ad that depicts Lyons’ life on a weekend, “Saturday with Jenna”, in which she is photographed with her son. In one of the photographs, she is shown painting his toenails pink.  This detail is what the media, specifically Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow, has chosen to emphasize. (more…)

One night not too long ago, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, and basketball all lubed up, hopped in bed, and banged.  Condom? What condom?

Their bastard child popped out all over the Internet this week. It’s called Kronum, and God/Buddha/Chuck Norris save us. We’re not ready for it. (more…)

Blake Mycoskie makes me want to become a better person. While on a trip to Argentina, this admirable entrepreneur visited impoverished children in villages where few had shoes. Mycoskie then had an epiphany: why not create a lightweight slip-on shoe with a breathable canvas top and leather insole for these children? Gee, sounds like an awesome idea. Although most people dream of changing the world in some significant way, Mycoskie actually put this thoughts to actions. He created a shoe company that would donate a pair of shoes to a child in need each time a pair was purchased.

And just like that, TOMS: Shoes for Tomorrow was born. Mycoskie never worked in fashion, but I gotta admit, TOMS are pretty freakin’ stylish. It’s no wonder why stores like Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, and Bloomingdale’s ordered about 41,000 pairs from TOMS spring and summer collections. The great thing about TOMS is not only do they provide a pair to a child in need, they’re a snug fit for your foot and perfect no matter where you are– beach, city, hiking, etc. These incredible shoes have the ability to prevent soil-transmitted diseases, which penetrate through bare skin, prevent the infection of cuts/sores, and in some cases, allow children to attend school. Please, I encourage you all to purchase a pair of TOMS if you haven’t already; they’re worth every penny.

American Apparel fills a niche in America’s retail landscape. The store is known for its basics, its ads and its prices. I first heard of American Apparel back in 2007 when they had the liquid and metallic leggings that Rihanna was seen wearing. I went to the store, found the leggings and paused: $40 for leggings? No chance, at least not here. (more…)

Jerk is proud to announce that a good chunk of our editorial staff competed in Syracuse University’s annual drag show, and finished in second place! Kudos goes out to Jessie Assimon, Nina Elias, Sam Morgenstern, Beckett Noyes, Kelsie Testa for filming, and last but certainly not our very own “Boyonce” star, Greg Miller!

You are seriously doing yourself a disservice if you don’t watch this entire video!
