Why was the iPhone 7 afraid of the iPhone 8? Because the iPhone 7 8….10? Yes, you heard me. Not only did Apple decide to skip the iPhone 9 moniker, but they announced THREE new iPhones during the Apple Special Event on Sept. 12. They also announced a new Apple TV 4K and the Apple Watch Ser...

Boycotting the NFL is ridiculous, absurd and patently stupid. This past Friday, social justice warrior Shaun King posted an article titled “Together, let’s boycott the NFL.” In his article, King vehemently declared that he announced this summer that he would be boycotting the NFL for “their o...

Rated 2.5/5 Emma Watson Belles Apparently Taco Bell is getting fancy on us, because they now serve Iced Vanilla Coffee. So now, I’m firing back at this multimillion dollar company (because they’ll definitely care) by upping the ante on my rating scale. Bye, bye, Disney Belle. It’s all about He...

Rate: 2.5/5 I heard about New SONIC Nights offering half-price shakes and Ice Cream Slushes after 8 p.m. yesterday and decided I would check it out. There, I found out that SONIC, for a limited time, will sell a new menu item, the Ice Cream Slush. The SONIC website describes this drink as a union...

Rated 5/5 Belles         You’ve all read about how much the $5 Cravings Deal impressed me, so just imagine my xi-tement when I saw Taco Bell released a new $5 combo, the Naked Chicken Chalupa box. I’ll describe this item in greater detail later, but for now, ju...

Everybody knows that guy. The guy that is so enamored with a girl that he can’t see past the fact that he’s got no shot to progress past “just being friends”. It’s the ultimate comfort zone. All nice and cozy, but in reality, it’s a trap. A trap that leads to false hope and heightened ex...

Waking up Sunday morning to the sobering news of Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura’s death hit many people from Kansas City in the heart. Throughout different parts of Sunday I had moments of thought about Ventura, his career and his glowing personality and joy for the game of basebal...

There aren’t many days of the year I enjoy more than Thanksgiving. In fact, if I were to set my personal rankings of the best holidays, I think Thanksgiving comes in behind only Christmas (what about Christmas doesn’t make me happy?) and the Fourth of July, ‘Merica, Baby! Thanksgiving is great...

Rated 5/5 Belles I have a routine. Well, I had a routine. I would leave school, drive straight down 135th Street to the Taco Bell near Twister’s and Walgreen’s, pull up to the drive thru window and order two items from the dollar menu-usually, the spicy tostada and the chicken quesadilla. Yesterday, ho...

Saturday night my beloved Chicago Cubs played Game 4 of the 2016 World Series against the Cleveland Indians at Wrigley Field. With the Cubs trailing in the series 2-1 and the Indians pitching their ace Corey Kluber, I was legitimately worried about our chances to win the game, let alone the whole serie...

The Mc10:35 is traditionally an Egg McMuffin with the addition of McDouble burger patties. Named after the dark ages when McDonald’s didn’t serve all-day breakfast, people were expected to get to the restaurant around 10:35 AM to catch the breakfast to lunch changeover. While today, this Mc10:35...

Sports are awesome. But they could easily be so much better. There are many different things each sport or league could do to enhance the games we love to watch. My completely and utterly un-biased opinion believes these are the best ideas around. NCAA Football: Make the College Football Playof...
