Life comes full circle in Oregon District vintage shop By Jason Webber It could have been an ordinary overcast summer day in Ohio, but it just so happened to be July 25, 2009, and it just so happened to be my very first time in Dayton. I was on a blind date with a girl […]

God the Father?

This has been bugging me for a long time, and I’ve only recently been able to put my finger on it.  I’ve got a really good friend who’s mom is turbo Christian.  Like, ridiculously Christian.  She’s one of those Christians who always seems to find a way in every single conversation to kick over some […]

Sylvester Stallone Can’t Fight

I read an interesting story recently about former #1 Heavyweight contender Earnie Shavers.  Apparently, when Stallone was casting for Rocky III he was considering, among other people, Earnie Shavers for the role of Clubber Lang.  Now, a lot of people don’t know this but Stallone used to consider himself quite a boxer in his early years, which is obviously where he […]
