Magazine Time Warp: The Ads of 2004

I’ve been digging through and clearing out the stuff I’ve left at my parents house, helping them convert my childhood bedroom into a guest room. I’ve been going through and documenting the things I don’t particularly wish to keep, but wanted to share before they got tossed. Thankfully, between the old notes from middle school, sticker collection, a journal detailing my Hamlet reading from the 11th grade, and mismatched Barbie shoes, a few magazines from the early to mid-2000s survived.

Here are some magazine ads that perfectly sum up the year 2004: Read More Magazine Time Warp: The Ads of 2004

Two weeks ago, I took a three-day trip to Las Vegas. I like playing slot machines while I am there (table games terrify me), and on this trip, I noticed that more and more celebrities are getting in on the gambling action.  Read More Celebrity Slot Machines

Why I Hate Carrie Bradshaw

I’ve recently been on a Sex and the City kick. It’s one of my go-to shows, kind of like Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond and Will & Grace – predictable, low-stress, mildly funny shows that cheer me up when I’m sad and provide me with much-needed stress relief. I call them my “fluff” shows, and I watch them when I don’t want to have to think. Read More Why I Hate Carrie Bradshaw
