A Cut Above

A good barbershop is hard to find. There are a few joints that cater to men, but almost comically so, with game shows on the television and Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions on the coffee tables. Salons and chain stores tend to be a bit classier, if less ‘manly’, and make it easy to get a […]

A couple of months ago, I read an article in the New York Times that listed several new books that had come out under a budding genre: feminist dystopian fiction. If you’ve ever heard of or watched “The Handmaid’s Tale” TV series (or read the book), then you have a fairly good idea of what […]

Review: Shazam!

Shazam! Is the most recent DCEU movie to come to theaters. Like its predecessor, Aquaman, Shazam! Is full of light-hearted humor to break up the action sequences.

A Minnesotan at the Texas Rodeo

There are few things that are more Texan than a rodeo, and the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo is one of the best. The air was filled with the smell of livestock, BBQ, fried food, and—of course—beer. In any given direction you look, there was a guarantee of seeing someone in a pair of […]

Going on a 50’s Date in San Antonio

Although people typically see a lot of the dating etiquette from the 1950s as “ridiculous”  and outdated, many of the customs used then can be adapted easily into 21st century dating.
