Pokemon: Children’s Show or Romanticized Cock Fighting?

Wait what?

If you’re trying to access this article from a computer at your school or place of business, I apologize. You most likely can’t view this article because, if your computer’s censorship software works anything like my school’s, your system saw the fragments “romantic” and “cock fighting” and exploded. Nonetheless, for those of you who can …

A Fictional(?) Personal Statement


The college process can be a tricky one. Much like the krebs cycle or putting clothes on in the morning, I’ve found the college process both confounding and confuddling. I found it even more so after I got deferred—although that may very well have happened because I think that “confuddling” is a word. Things didn’t …

My Very Own Senior Profile


Being a staff member on Campus can be rough. You can’t be quoted in any articles, you always have a deadline hanging over yourself, and worst of all, you can’t be the focus of a senior profile. Senior profiles are (or at least used to be) the highest honor in all of Edgemont. If you …

Four Ways To Defuse The Iran Problem

Already gave it to them guys. Remember the Falklands?

It’s no secret that the U.S. (and the rest of the West, for that matter), is developing a bit of an “Iran Problem.” For those of you who have not read the news recently (and by recently, I mean the last three or four years), Iran is allegedly trying to develop the capability to make …

Christmas Vs. Hanukah: The Uncomfortably Gritty Knife Fight to the Bitter Winter Holiday Death

This is my most recent back-page. It is also my least favorite to date. Enjoy(?)   As the deadline for this back-page loomed closer and closer, I began to grow a wee bit sad. Though December’s landscape is, obviously, dominated by Christmas (yes, Christmas, Hanukkah lovers), I realized that January contains no significant holidays. Sure, …

LOTR Vs. Star Wars: Cage Match To The Bitter End (Of The On Sale Bin)

Yeah, that's right, I'm a book devoted entirely to the detailed depiction of the history of Middle-Earth, and the greater world of Arda as a whole.

Prior to the release of the “Lord of The Rings Trilogy,” there was nothing ambiguous about the phrase “The Trilogy.” “The Trilogy” obviously referred to the legendary science fiction franchise “Star Wars,” the brainchild of George Lucas. Now, however, that certainty is longer present. In 2001, director Peter Jackson undertook the cinematic adaptation of J.R.R. …

My Day Amongst The Heathens: A Visit To Occupy Wall Street

This is the kind of happiness that a family could never even hope to bring you

There are three things in life that I truly love: Starcraft 2, my family, and drum circles. I’m not listing those in order, of course. (If I were, drum circles would be first). Due to my fondness for drum circles, I decided to head down to the city to get in on the biggest drum …

AJ’s Guide To Having A Great Thanksgiving


Senior year is, expectedly, a stressful time in one’s life. You have to apply to college, you have a harder course load, and you have more responsibility in your extra curricular activities. It can be a lot to handle. So to help deal with the some of the stress, I recently went over to my …

My Summer Adventure


The following was an article that I wrote back in May/June for my school’s newspaper’s back page. I’ve already gone through the program discussed, and I’ll probably post an article about it later this week.   Back in January, I applied to a language immersion program in Vermont. Essentially, I’m going to try and learn …

What Do You Mean “World” Series?

Really? Because I went to a KHL game last week as a 25 year old young professional, and now I am 63 and in a soup kitchen.

Thomas Terrymon is just your average European War Criminal, trying to restart his life here in the USA. The phenomenon of baseball is not something that has ever translated to my home country, the name of which I am no longer legally allowed to disclose (curse you, “Kroatia”). Regardless, one thing I’ve never understood is …
