On Nov.17, at the San Jose, California, stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West surprised and angered thousands of his fans, with his confession: he did not vote in this roller coaster election and that if he had voted, it would’ve been for Donald Trump, thus endorsing him. “I said something that was kind of politically correct,” West said. “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right. I didn’t tell you… I guess I told you… But If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted on Trump.” He continued by stating, “That don’t mean that I don’t think that Black Lives Matter, that I don’t mean that I don’t think I believe in women’s rights … because that was the guy I would’ve voted for.” Then West changed the route of his statement when he directed his speech to a certain group. “Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism,” West…

The highlight of ABC’s Nightline interview of Lil Wayne, on Tuesday night was him dismissing and drawing a line between himself and the Black Lives Matter movement. When ABC journalist, Lindsey Davis, brought up the movement to the rapper at the end of the interview, he replied with, “What is it? What does it mean?” After Davis explained that Black Lives Matter was a movement created because the rest of America didn’t seem to understand that black lives, do in fact, matter. She then asked him about what connection he felt with the movement, he said, “That just sounds weird,” and moved on to saying that the movement has nothing to do with him. “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” the rapper said. “If you do, you crazy as shit.” This connection, he says, doesn’t exist because of who he…

Everyone knows what happened with Brock Turner­, the white, privileged boy whose position as a former swimmer saved him from any meaningful punishment for sexually assaulting someone. He raped an unconscious girl behind a dumpster at Stanford University and just got out of the California county jail that Judge Persky “sentenced” him to a few days ago. Persky sentenced him to six months in jail, but unfortunately, he was released three months early because of “good behavior.” For the past three months everyone’s debated furiously about the fact that a rapist was let off super easily just because the judge believed that prison would have a severe impact on his life, as if he didn’t ruin the life of the girl he raped. The girl then had to suffer all the bullshit of getting blamed for him being in jail as if she asked for it. She had to put…

The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the most outstanding awards to receive. A Nobel recipient  is not only  a champion of the people but a person of exemplary moral stature. This year’s nominees are nothing short of that: Nadia Murad, an escaped ISIS sex slave and a spokeswoman against ISIS; Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church and Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee who revealed the NSA’s unlawful surveillance programs. All of these candidates are prime subjects for a Nobel Peace Prize.  There is, however, one that towers over all —  the Nobel-est, you might say. This candidate leads the fight against ISIS harder than Murad, is more dedicated to the American people than Snowden and is a more devout Christian than the Pope. This man is Donald Trump. Donald Trump is, by far, the obvious candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. The fact that he hasn’t…

The aroma of coffee grounds and sweet vanilla milk pervade the air as the hiss of the milk steamer played like a soundtrack, only to be interrupted by the barista behind the counter calling out the names written on the white cups with the trademark green siren.

Nowadays we can all just walk around with one. They’re convenient, carry one in your purse, backpack, as an accessory to your belt or even as an ankle bracelet.  Why not make a fashion statement out of that which is already fashionable.  They come in lots of different colors just like the new iPhone 5C.  If you want to spend the cash on quality I suggest you pick one up from a specialty store. Of course cheap ones are sold at Walmart too, but what isn’t really?  I bet you I could find one pretty quickly on Craigslist if I was in a pinch, or my felonies finally caught up with me. The As Seen on TV ad runs in the background of your average American home:  “Does being up close and personal to your victims freak you out? Cross-bows are just too complicated for your teenagers to use, aren’t…

You’ve picked up The Stony Brook Press and are now currently reading “What Happens Behind the Driver’s Seat of a Wagon that’s Shaggin’.” I want you, before you continue any further, to do me a favor: Look to your left. Now look to your right. Students. Everywhere. Most of whom are trekking around campus with bulging book bags and their third cup of coffee, looks of intrepid determination or exhausted angst residing behind mascaraed eyelashes and dark circles. This is the Stony Brook University student body, and despite our differences, there is something we all share: a story and some means of transportation. Among the bicycles, buses, cars and Porsche’s (Yes, I have seen a student driving one, and I feel it belongs in a class of its own) there lies the Shaggin‘ Wagon a 1993 Toyota Previa thats outer appearance rivals that of the Porsche—perhaps not for its provocative…

Earlier this week I decided to take a trip down internet-memory-lane and visit a website which used to account for 95 percent of my internet bandwidth. Homestar Runner. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Homestar Runner, it’s a flash-cartoon website that came about in the early 2000s, you may have seen some of your classmates sporting their t-shirts. The site, to my surprise, still had the same design that it did back in 2005, eight years ago. Initially I thought this was a bad sign. To my delight I found most of the new cartoons to be on par with the ones I grew up with. I quickly found myself laughing along to Strong-Bad emails and wondering why I had ever stopped visiting the site in the first place. To be honest, I was very impressed that the creators of the site were able to continue making cartoons…

You may be surprised to find that Miley Cyrus’s video for her new hit song, “Wrecking Ball” is listed at number ten on this list. And why shouldn’t you be? The sheer stupidity and freaky nature of the video trumped her controversial 2013 VMA performance in August, a feat that many thought was impossible. But the videos that ranked higher make Cyrus’s “wreck” look like a masterpiece. Let’s have a look: 10. “Wrecking Ball” – Miley Cyrus In the last year, Cyrus has made every attempt to ditch the Hannah Montana  image, and what better way than to swing away naked on a wrecking ball. I also thought the oral pleasure to the sledgehammer was a nice touch along with pretending to have an orgasm while rolling around on her back on the pieces of concrete. I have to say, I’m disappointed by Cyrus and her desperation to…
