Every time I read an article like the recent "How social media can hurt your career" on Careerbuilder, I am grateful that we didn't have social media back when I was in college. Young, testing the waters, and with a lot of opinions to share, I wonder if I would have unknowingly committed a faux pas in the weakness of a heated moment that would have hurt me professionally? ...more

Top Five Tuesday - Ripped From The Headlines!

While I wouldn’t say that all porn is true to life (it’s all about the fanasties), there are some dirty flicks that grab their ideas right from what’s happening in the world.  In “Law & Order” speak, their topics are ’ripped from the headlines’ (a phrase which I love).  Sure they usually don’t have anything to do with the event or trend, but more often than not, the pornographer does a phenomenal job of marketing the shit out of what the movie is based on and definitely more often than not, I am too curious not to watch.  Here’s a list of my favorite current ev ...more
