Culture Staff Writer | Raichel Jenkins| rj790813@ohio.edu

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.” 

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 12.41.55 PMIn 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.

Culture Staff Writer | Madison Lantelme-Capitano | ml540312@ohio.edu

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 12.37.09 PMMe Talk Pretty One Day. Naked. Holiday on Ice. Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk. Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.

Anyone unfamiliar with the works of David Sedaris may confuse these titles with a perplexing string of words that could be easily found in a self-help book.

Those who do know Sedaris know that his madcap titles add to the hilarity of his essays. Nothing is quite as satisfying as the look on someone’s face when you tell that person you’re reading Naked.

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.

FANGLE Culture: Binge Gaming

Lifestyle Staff Writer | Madison Lantelme-Capitano | ml540312@ohio.edu

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.

FANGLE Greek Files: Phi Kappa Psi

Culture Staff Editor | Jackie Petre | jp774811@ohio.edu

*Editor’s Note: For anyone not involved in it, Greek Life can often seem like a world of its own. You might see members in togas, bow ties or ridiculous ’80s outfits hanging out at the bars on a Thursday night and wonder why they chose a college lifestyle so different than your own. The funny thing is, if you actually take the time to talk to a member of Greek Life, you’ll quickly discover that they are normal students, just like you.

That’s where the Greek Files come in. Each week, we will be profiling a new, random member from a social, business, service, honors or otherwise fraternity or sorority, to show people the real students involved in Greek Life and what going Greek means to them.
