Party of Five

Set in the spooky basement of the frat house on Halloween, these dudes seem to be whooping it up crazy style. And by crazy style I mean, just a casual game of bad beer pong. Not sure why they were cast to the confines of a very small basement. I mean in most situations and […]

Look What I Found

Exactly what you need, another drink.  Look, I get it, going to your co-worker’s after-bar party just because you’re on the company kickball team is always a good idea.

Seasons Change

Fall is a time for change or transition. If you’re lucky enough to live where the leaves turn colors, you’re able to walk out the door and see bright reds and golds fill the once green trees. The leaves are the obvious reminders of the season, but there are other signs.  The air gets cooler […]
