Will We At Least Try To Stop This Madness?

In Local News by Ryco Newton-Block

It was 6pm yesterday evening when I got back to my apartment after finishing work. I turned on my Xbox to play Madden but I couldn’t do it. I turned on my TV to watch Sportscenter but shut it off before the screen could illuminate. I’d spent the entire day avoiding the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, but I couldn’t avoid it any longer. I had gone about my day the same as I usually do: Gym, breakfast, call clients, the usual. I had tried not to think Read More

A Real Life Commencement Speech to 2017’s College Graduates

In Questionable Advice by Ryco Newton-Block

I remember my 2011 college graduation commencement speaker’s speech like it was yesterday. And yesterday I was black out drunk. But seriously, I don’t remember who gave it, what they said or if I even listened. Actually, on my graduation day I remember being brutally hung over after a night of Four Lokos, getting drunk with my friends that morning, and then driving to the ceremony together in a minivan. Oh to be young.

What I’m trying to say is that commencement Read More

You sit in your car eating your Chipotle burrito, listening to the new Chainsmokers song. This is easily the most enjoyable part of your workday.

Fuck your Dog’s Instagram

In Questionable Advice by Ryco Newton-Block

You’re an asshole.

Yes you, person whose dog recently followed me on Instagram in the hopes of receiving a follow back. The fucking balls you have. The balls of a Great Dane.

The Imposters Guide to Talking Finance

In Questionable Advice by Ryco Newton-Block

At age 28, I find it imperative that I know how to discuss finance with my friends and peers. Please note: I did not say that I find it imperative to actually know about finance. I don’t. I know nothing about finance. I can barely calculate the net effective rent on a 12-month lease without my mind twisting into a pretzel. Someone once asked me to define amortization so I faked a seizure to keep from embarrassing myself. After that day, I swore I Read More
