13 Reasons Why: Watch Your Thoughts

[This post discusses topics such as suicide and sexual assault. We can all help prevent suicide. If you are having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255. You are not alone.] I’m sitting here and my hands are shaking. I am outraged.

The MET Gala: Catholic Imagination

One of the perks of living in NYC is that I’m literally in the cultural hub of the world. And I’m not saying that arrogantly, or with any snooty tone. It’s frankly, a fact. People look to Gotham for the latest in news, entertainment, literature, architecture and design, and fashion. In case you were snoozing onContinue reading The MET Gala: Catholic Imagination

PORN: A Virgin’s Perspective

Warning: Tonight, I’m going to be writing about the four-letter “P-Word” that makes everyone squirm. Porn. I read a really scary statistic today.

The Generation that Killed Romance

Our generation is going to go down as the generation that killed romance. Among other things. But the death of chivalry and courtship will be our legacy. And I blame one thing: Dating Apps. Ugh.

TV Morality

Confession: I like watching TV commercials. Partly because I’m an actor and I do a lot of commercials, and so it’s kinda like homework to see what the commercial “trends” are. Some of these trends include: making dads and men seem like dopes or incompetent, ethnically ambiguous “heroes,” the switching of normal gender roles, andContinue reading TV Morality
