Azis Ansari Explains Feminism

Azis Ansari is a talented writer, comedian, actor and apparently proud feminist. In a recent interview with David Letterman, he spoke about his understanding of what it means to be a feminist and why he thinks it’s important to talk about gender issues, including in comedy. Much of his understanding of feminism he attributes to his girlfriend, saying, “my girlfriend makes me think about those things. She’s a big feminist and I am too”. Go, Azis!

He also goes on to make some pretty hilarious comments about equality between Beyonce and Jay Z. Check out the interview clip here:

This makes us love Azis even more, and brings up a very important rule. If you’re going to shack up with a significant other, please make it someone who respects you as an equal.

Hair You See Him, Hair You Don’t

cfl-light-bulbI had just relocated to a new city and was settling in, meeting new people and finding my way. One day I received a Facebook message from an acquaintance I hadn’t heard from in years. At first I wasn’t sure how I knew him but recalled thanks to Facebook we’d met once or twice through friends while I was working abroad. He was writing to say welcome to the state and that he often traveled to my city for work and would I like to get drinks. I said yes. Within two weeks he was in town for work and texted to ask me out. I was surprised by the quickness but said sure! We had a great conversation at drinks, realized we had a ton in common, and he was really cute. He owned his own light bulb company and was knowledgeable about business and worldly. After he walked me home we ended up making out and he left saying he’d see me soon. It was a random and fun date, I was excited to see what might happen.

He went back to his city and proceeded to call me every night to talk on the phone. We’d talk about our days but he’d also ask a ton of “get to know you” questions about everything- likes, dislikes, dating past, family, you name it. It felt very intentional on his part and kind of old-fashioned. I chocked it up to him being a nice Jewish boy. This went on for weeks. At times, I felt weird about it because I didn’t even know him and the efforts on his part were very consistent. I couldn’t remember the last time I had spoken to a guy EVERY night on the phone. It was insane! But it was also sweet and nice in a way. So I took his calls and spent the time getting to know him. After a few weeks he announced he was coming back to my city and it was decided he would stay with me. I wasn’t sure what to expect but prepared for my house guest. The day showed up for him to arrive, he texted me all throughout his drive- he drove 9 hours…

Episode to Watch: Practice Date

Amy Poehler is hands-down one of the funniest comedians of our generation. Both her writing and comedic execution are incredible. It’s no wonder that “Parks and Recreation” has enjoyed such a vital run- currently in its sixth season on NBC. The premise is hilariously accurate; the writing- sublime.

Screen Shot 2013-11-21 at 4.24.28 AM

On the top of our list of FAVORITE episodes is “Practice Date”, episode four, season two. This particular episode is without a doubt one of the funniest, most SFAR perfect shows of the series.

“What if I get drunk and talk about Darfur too much? Or not enough?”

“What if he shows up with another woman?” ”What if my sleeve catches on fire, and spreads rapidly?”

Co-worker DRAMA

Screen Shot 2013-10-03 at 1.14.32 AMI was riding my bike on my university’s campus the other evening when I heard two women loudly arguing. I looked around to see where the noise was coming from and realized it was a pair of ladies sitting next to one another on a bench- so close they were obviously friends- but were shouting VERY loudly at each other.

As I rode closer, I heard the following conversation…
