Sarah Slamen Explains It All


By Jacob Calle The pleasure of writing for a publication is that we are allowed to speak our free mind to the masses and share our ideas. Right now, one could not find a better time to do so with the passing of the controversial abortion bill. This bill efficaciously shut down abortion clinics across the great Lone Star State pushing women back to the early 1900s. So while we set our clocks back a hundred years we shall wear orange and stand tall. We must give awareness and publicize the importance of allowing women to have the freedom of ... Read More »

Comicpalooza: A Home For Nerds


 By Jacob Calle This was my second time to attend the convention and I must say that it has become a safe haven for comic book nerds and beyond. The three day event held shelter for those who felt the need to dress like their favorite comic book hero or villain. From painted cardboard bonded with Duct tape to resemble Iron Man to Hollywood-esque costumes that would be fit to hire for a child’s birthday party…or an adult party for the countless cosplay babes which is equivalent to Halloween’s sexy version of a nurse, fireman, or policeman. Famous comic book ... Read More »

Bowling For Rhinos


By Jacob Calle Killing off wildlife for economic gain is terrifying. We leave our descendents little to nothing, showing them that their ancestors were no better than how white men treated slaves. But I guess that’s just human nature. We are a horrible species. Perhaps we are the animals without the soul. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) has declared yet another Black Rhino extinct, this being the Western Black Rhino (Diceros bicornis longipes). The rhino had little to no conservation efforts, making them an easy target for poachers to kill for their horns. There is said to be ... Read More »

Houston’s Very Own Time Capsule: The Astrodome

Panorama 2

By: Jacob Calle Photos: Richard  Ramirez There has been many rumors floating around about what will become of the Astrodome. Once such rumor mentions the Astrodome becoming an exotic animal hunting lease. This glorious building with its Empyrean dome is considered to be the Eighth Wonder of the World and, for some, is considered as awe-inspiring as The Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, The Great Pyramid of Giza, and The Great Sphinx.  So why do we even have to raise the question of whether or not this brilliant structure should be destroyed? While there doesn’t seem to be a definitive ... Read More »

NBA ALLSTAR WEEKEND: Money, Sex, Fame, Glamour


By: Jacob Calle Alicia Keys and Jay Z hosted parties at Rich’s in Midtown. With my sneakery talent I was able to sneak in, make handshakes with the club manager, and somehow obtain media passes for my bud and I. Instead of writing about my full story on how I snuck into this event while passing through high security and police men I’ve decided to post photos of the event and share them with you. At first I felt like Peter Parker snapping photos for the year book. I was a lonely inept white guy asking politely to take photos ... Read More »

Andrew W.K. Performs A Special Super Solo Show At Boondocks


Who in what mind, takes a brick and smashes their own nose for an album cover? Oh, that would be Andrew W.K. The Party God as some may call him. He’s performed at arenas, festivals, theaters, and large venues, but for one night only Houston will be able to see Andrew perform a special super solo show as he likes to call them. No backing band or no backing wife tracing his lyrics after him with such words as “Yeah!”, “Ugh!”, or “Lets Party!”. Andrew will be partying solo on a stage with just he and his piano and would ...

Real Talk with zoologist, Jack Hanna


  By Jacob Calle Before there was Steve Irwin or Jeff Corwin there was Jack Hanna. The man that started my day as a child in the morning with his animal television programs such as “Zoo Life”. Which in fact I still own the “What’s Up Down Under” episode on VHS. He’s a genuine man that is passionate about his field of study. There are people who want to become a lawyer when they grow up and they end up becoming an electrician. Jack Hanna wanted to work with animals and at 66 he is continuing that five year old ...
