When people in modern society hear the term “feminist,” their minds paint a picture of an aggressive, man-hating woman with radical world views, which is not the truth behind feminism. Feminism, by definition, means the equality of the sexes. That’s it. Campaigns such as HeForShe by the U.N. Women are breaking down the word “feminist” and making it a conversation about the solidarity and equality of the sexes on all levels.
British songstress Jessie J is back with soul and power in her second album, Sweet Talker. It has been a few years since J has released music, and the time seems to have served her well. The album features fun collaborations with artists such as Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, 2 Chainz and violinist Lindsey Stirling.
Editor’s Note: FANGLE Magazine takes to the streets of Athens to interview the different individuals within crowds. This is a series inspired by the popular photo series “Humans of New York.”
In what ways do you embody and/or move past the image of the typical masculine man? Do you feel like society places too tight a box on “masculinity?
I would say that I’m as far divorced from masculinity as any cis man could hope to be. I paint my nails, care way too much about personal grooming and enjoy weepy dramas more than most women I know. Masculinity is boring.
If you haven’t heard of Timeflies yet, you will soon. The duo, comprised of vocalist Cal Shapiro and Rob “Rez” Resnick, was featured as an MTV Artist to Watch in 2013. The group does not have an easily defined style; they are the perfect combination of pop, hip hop and electronic. They formed Timeflies in 2010 while they were still in college. They started making videos every Tuesday, appropriately called Timeflies Tuesday, in which they covered or free styled popular songs. Along the way, they have released original music in the form of several EPs and two full albums. This fall, they are on tour in honor of their latest album, After Hours.
It’s week 2 of our website being launched and we have seen that our online magazine reached more than 17,000 people within the last two weeks. Thank you, so much for checking out our website!
Some things at FANGLE are still coming together. To answer some of the feedback that I have received: a lot of our staff members are freshman or relatively new to journalism. As they’re getting their foot through the door, it’s important to teach them what we’ve learned from our own personal experiences so they too, can grow personally in writing, photography, or whatever it may be.
With time, comes experience. Though it may seem like a lot of our content is still on the relatively minimal, we are doing what we can at the publication to teach our staff the fundamentals of reporting and making sure views are expressed in an objective way while still telling a compelling story.
However, their passion and eagerness to learn, still drives this magazine moreso than I have seen in a lot of people who choose to enter the field. It’s an encouragement for me and for a lot of our senior editors.
It reminds me of the potential FANGLE has for the future, and it’s a bright one.

For someone who doesn’t like gin, Ian Wilson, a bartender at The Crystal sure does love Kansas City Ice Waters. “I am not a huge gin fan but all the flavors mix really well, and the lime juice is a nice added touch,” he said. Wilson gave FANGLE the scoop on what goes into the beverage and how to make them.

Last week, I decided that reality absolutely sucked and I needed to be as far away from it as possible. I bought popcorn, candy and some energy drinks. I locked my door, put on my fluffy pink bathrobe and proceeded to relieve stress the best way I know how — binge gaming.
I alternated between “Majora’s Mask,” “Grand Theft Auto V” and “Skyrim.” By the time I woke from my caffeine-and-sugar-induced haze, I realized I had spent the last three days cooped up in my room with no substantial food and zero contact with the real world.
