Peanuts 2000

You might have recently caught the trailer for the upcoming Peanuts movie. If not, here ya go.

A+ on the animation job, fellers. Really neat. The content itself is a little corny (the manic sidekick taking the attention away from the protagonist? Is this 1995?). That begs the question though- how are they going to make this decades-old comic relevant for millennials? Particularly since parodists such as the Simpsons, Family Guy, Robot Chicken, and like a hundred people on the internet have already mined the material and spoofed most of the aspects?

Armchair Activism and What We Learned from Kony 2012


A video of a cat falling off a table, and a campaign aimed to take down a child kidnapping despot in Africa. At first glance the two seem incongruous. The former is a joke, meant to be digested and forgotten in the span of a few minutes. The latter, on the other hand, is a pressing matter that concerns a social issue happening in real time.

(Pause for wild laughter.)

Internet friends, I’m here today to talk to you about a social phenomenon called armchair activism, or in more hip terms, slacktivism. It’s a trend that’s been around for ages in various forms.

Please Welcome the 2014 Millennial Couple



Modern urban life, am I right guys? So complex and difficult for us 20-somethings! Modern careers, modern romance, modern entertainment, it’s all so different and unique like us. I can’t even decide which show I’m going to binge watch tonight- Girls or New Girl. Both of those shows just GET how I live. I guess it depends on how quirky and/or whimsical I feel. Maybe I’ll ask on Facebook or Twitter. Oh man Brendan just posted an animated .gif of a cat with text over it saying “I can’t even”. Continue reading “Please Welcome the 2014 Millennial Couple”
