Hold Me to My Snarky Comment...

This morning at the gym, I heard a song that may be the anthem for poor choices. I don't know the title of the song or the artist. I just know the chorus repeats ad-nauseum, "I like us better when we're wasted." Now I do premarital counseling and if I ever heard a couple say this to me, I would 1.) refuse to marry them, and 2.) advocate that they run screaming from this relationship as quickly as possible. If you need to abuse substances to stand being around someone, I could be wrong but it…See More

Cause and Effect: What Creatives Can Learn from Kathy Griffin

So the other day, Kathy Griffin posted the now infamous President Trump severed head picture. She thought she was being cutting edge and cool, making a statement. Then yesterday I saw her crying about how the Trumps were bullying her and she has secured a lawyer, I guess to bring some sort of lawsuit against the president of the United States and in that moment I understood, she doesn't understand cause and effect. Do you?Now let's start off with the basics. First this is not a political post,…See More
