Dear Bristol Palin,

Celebrating my 20th birthday meant a few things: one more year until I’m legal, Syracuse beat Villanova in a historical NCAA basketball match-up, and I dodged the possibility of falling victim to teenage pregnancy.

There has been a surge of teenage pregnancy in popular culture throughout the past few years, like Ellen Page’s famous breakout role in Juno, MTV’s reality show “16 and Pregnant,” and ABC Family’s hit series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” While pop culture has a strong hold on this subject matter, I’ve been aware of your baby situation due to all of your media appearances.

Of all the appearances and publicity stints, this new Candies commercial really takes the cake. (more…)

When you’re watching tonight’s basketball games, specifically Syracuse stomping all over Butler, spice it up a little with our home-made “March Madness” drinking game. Grab a few beers, an orange T-shirt, and your favorite handle for the 7:00 showing and follow these rules.

Take a shot/sip of beer every time:

  • Someone references the word “madness.”
  • You see Otto spin his head.
  • A cheerleader drops her stunt.
  • Wes Johnson smiles. (more…)

I don’t know what to make of this, so I thought it’d be best to post it publicly. Let the comments commence.

George Clooney is one good looking man, but he didn’t look too happy last night at the Oscars. Poor guy, someone throw him an academy award.

There’s nothing worse than when you’re out on a Saturday night, groping some dude/chick on the sticky dance floor of some frat party that plays the same old music every weekend, and then the lights come on to expose the most hideous face you could imagine at that moment. Alcohol plays tricks on us, and so does poor lighting.

We think this YouTube clip of a Family Guy episode epitomizes the same reaction you have when the lights come on, and you realize you no longer want to.

Yo, Courtney Love acknowledges her feminist roots. What’s good?

If you’re an SU student then you should go see The Vagina Monologues tonight in Marshall Auditorium on ESF’s campus. These are some of the reasons why watching this performance is a better way to spend your Thursday night than whatever else you were planning:

  1. Vagina is an awesome word.
  2. It’s free.
  3. Sexual violence isn’t cool, but sexual empowerment is very cool.
  4. It’ll be more fun than watching your roommate snore on your couch.
  5. Eve Ensler rocks. Support the “V-Day” movement.

"Real Girls"...Krystie and Molly getting ready to celebrate Valentine's Day in February of 1996.

"Real Girls"...Krystie and Molly getting ready to celebrate Valentine's Day in February of 1996.

I have officially decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day, after much thought and analysis, but I’m doing it up a little differently this year.

You can still celebrate Valentine’s Day in a unique way—honor the love you share with your favorite family member or an old friend. It’s not a requirement that you be in a serious relationship or even in love to take part in this historically sexist holiday.

Instead of writing someone a mushy love note and buying a super cheesy box of chocolates, I want to take some time to write a different kind of love letter—a note to my best friend, Molly. I want to encourage people not to give in to the sucky, Valentine’s Day clichés decided by Hallmark, Hershey’s, and 1800flowers.com–find your own way of embracing love. Here’s mine:
