Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple

Every time a seemingly random act of violence occurs, our brains rely on social and cultural clues to bring some sense of reason to what is potentially unreasonable. Our brains, however, have another natural response to contradicting stimuli or irrational behavior; and that's called "cognitive dissonance." Cognitive dissonance occurs when one is aware that something… Continue reading Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple

The Harry Potter Festival just got more cringe

Last weekend, thousands of Harry Potter fans descended on Chestnut Hill, PA for the 7th annual Harry Potter Festival on Germantown Avenue. For seven years, this flamboyantly jejune exhibition has granted both disappointed children and brazen developmentally halted adults the ability to frolic in unfettered glee in what would otherwise be an unmitigated playground of derision, a… Continue reading The Harry Potter Festival just got more cringe

Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage

Ask yourself a question. What moral authority do you have over your neighbor? If your answer is anything other than "None, whatsoever," we have a serious problem on our hands. We live in an environment right now where large sections of our populous and governing bodies, regardless of intention, are both shameless and authoritarian. Shameless, through… Continue reading Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage

White people don’t get to have a history

https://www.facebook.com/VICE/videos/836106116549340/?hc_ref=ARTlbGWQV2vo2heUj6ZpUS25PnWcO_-XlqzUI6EOXcdbvDhxHfew1IjHQ1FzzAUwVCE In the latest "revisionist history" news, Vice has interviewed a couple of art historians about the possibility of ancient Roman statues having been painted back in the day. A study which, on its own, would be at least vaguely interesting, turned into a new accusation of "whitewashing" history through nothing other than...white stone. Yes, that's… Continue reading White people don’t get to have a history
