San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
My virtual life is better than my real life (Sword Art Online analysis)
This is a short one, but here it goes. The most common use of technology and the one that’s been told a thousand times in entertainment is the use of virtual reality; a world more immersive then the world we live in now and if we die in the virtual world, we die in real life. Big stuff. For psychological reasons, many of us want to escape. We do it every time when we return home from work, from a date, from a scary hospital and we want to look at kittens for relief. It’s popular, but it’s a suicide at large if you think about it. Whether you liked Sword Art Online or not and how it’s gaming references and love story experiments such a gathering, elements in the show portray a double jeopardy into how we see ourselves as different people and how we wish to spend the rest of our days. The individual’s life serving in an alternate reality increases when they break limitations they never thought they could do before, gaining skills, dressing up, traveling anywhere, and fighting monsters. Using a helmet and connecting the consciousness into a video game where millions of others can meet up is a growing trend, but it also serves as a means of going to a world after death through means of killing the player (if the player has no desire to live in the real world and wishes to have more time to be in a world that's meaningful). Hence the story of SAO when the creator traps players in the game with no way of turning off the game or they’ll die. Many of the main characters and other players in the game, some of them are carefree of the idea, most of them question their lives of how they will adapt in a video game while their bodies in the real world decay slowly. Addiction, confusion, low esteem, anxiety, and physical and sexual behavior are signs of playing so much and the characters show these. Kirito is a loner in the real world and the virtual world and is scared easily when players ask him to join a guild and flirts with some of the women. Other players are at risk because higher leveled creatures and players roam around twenty four hours a day. Their personal heaven. And I don’t even want to imagine what happens to their blander and bowels in the game. But even when the desperation sets in, Kirito and company still help players and not want any of them, who are weak to carry out their own lives while playing a game, to feel like they're scared. Kirito shows these signs very consistently, and he himself is someone who has had a troubled past and his two year coma is a way of going out. At least until he wakes up.
Would You Eat These Star Wars Ice Cream Flavors?
In a galaxy far, far away - or, you know, Brooklyn, a popular ice cream shop is banking in on the highly-anticipated 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' release by making a Force-approved release of their very own - two delectable flavors of frozen custard inspired by the film. Before you comment with "What the what, @danidee?! How'd they get past Disney?!", the limited edition flavors are a special collaboration between Ample Hill Creamery and Disney themselves. (Yes, sometimes when it's not being an evil miser of a corporation, Disney knows how to be a homie and treat their fans to something great.) And these flavor descriptions are so beautiful I might cry. First, there's the Dark Side: ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownie bites, Cocoa Krispies, and white chocolate pearls "to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through." (The company's words, not mine.) Yeah, I bet that PB&J is looking pretty boring right now, Vader. And then, of course, there's the Light Side - fit for members of the Rebel Alliance (or people who just really like vanilla). It's marshmallow ice cream with homemade Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies treat clusters "to represent the dark side still lurking within the light." I like how they feel like they need to explain why they put two different types of Krispy treats in there. Bro, it's okay. You already had us at 'marshmallow ice cream'. Who knew Jedis were such supreme foodies? The best part is that Ample Hills is making the ice cream ONLY available online, which means that you don't have to live near their New York location to buy it! (Let's momentarily look past the fact that it costs $36 for a 4-pack and you have to pay for express shipping, shall we?) So with that being said: Are you down to order some Star Wars ice cream? Or are you perfectly content with just sprinkling some Cocoa Krispies on your Thrifty Chocolate Malted Crunch and calling it a day? Let me know in the comments below, and for more things you didn't know you wanted to buy until you opened up Vingle today, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection!

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?

Cover up (Fairy Tail analysis)
Once upon a time, there was an anime series that presented a world of magic, knights, talking creatures, and sweaty people with rare dice. There isn’t any in this realm, but there are other shenanigans running around in Magnolia and within the Fairy Tail guild, such as fish, and ass kicking. This was a show I wasn’t fond of, but of course like all interesting aspects of storytelling, there is one that kept my thinking as I watched the characters progressed and that is the outfits and how they cover up the vulnerabilities, leading to empathy from the audience. Magic is the most useful element carried out by members of the Fairy Tail guild and each one wears certain types of clothes. The classes show different magic powers and helps them become capable of handling situations with no problem, but when all magic energy drains, the battles between mages ends up submissive. That’s when the emotional side of the mages start to show, which gives them an extra boost during a time of either losing or dying. This is when we get to see the main characters open up. Not only do the outfits and classes represent who they are, but also allows them to hide secrets from their past. Lucy is a happy outgoing girl who uses celestial magic (summoning) to help her in battle and is very enthusiastic in the Fairy Tail guild. She’s caring, supportive, and calls the Fairy Tail guild her home. But due to her rough past with her father and the reclusive life as a princess and not interacting with the outside world, she is a prisoner in her own mind and working as a celestial wizard covers up her past. She had maids who help her throughout her days in a mansion, and was under the many social norms and didn’t actually make friends. When her father sends a guild of wizards to stop the Fairy Tail guild and take her back and watches her friends beaten, she falls in denial and eventually goes back to her father. Another thing to mention is the clothes she wears. Most of them are causal and often exotic, whereas the clothes she wears back at her home is formal, and respectable. As Lucy confronts her father and listens to his rules, she rejects his offers. We see Lucy grow stronger when she is a wit’s end and not giving in. Perhaps one of the strongest female leads in the series, Erza is without a doubt Fairy Tail’s knight in shining armor. She is also hardheaded and is the drill sergeant of everyone. She keeps a strong composure of her feelings inside when she wears her armor. When shes alone Erza is comfortable in her own skin without the armor. Her magic armor and her strict behavior shows us her that she has gone through abuse as kid. She was a slave and worked in forced labor along with other children and was mentally scarred when the other slaves rebelled and started to kill some officers. One of her fellow slaves taught her that the only to survive is learn how to fight back physically and this made her stronger as she aged. She is afraid to express her shame, sadness, and isolation and the armor she picks up is to unite her heroism and cover up her frame of mind. Gray is a super laid back dude with a lot of buff, and has scars and bruises to prove it. Even without wearing a shirt. To me, there’s an opposite direction for Gray as compared to the other characters I’ve mentioned. Gray fights best without a shirt on and goes to the extreme with recklessness. Some members of the guild tell him to put clothes on because it’s embarrassing and sometimes pushes people away. The striking part about Gray is since he’s an ice wizard, he wears a jacket and shirt, especially when he was training to become one as a kid. Covering Gray’s skin allows warm comfort and Juvia, another member of the guild who has a crush on him, is his saving grace and knowing that it’s okay to commit to others for support. Natsu has a piece of clothing that keeps his past hidden and that is his scarf wrapped around his neck. And his neck is a weak point much like every other human. The scarf acts like a band-aid and he doesn’t go anywhere without it. Like a stuffed toy from childhood and letting it go is hard, even if it has some bad stains. Clothes are like masks and the style represents who you are and then there are the ones that are plain and hardly shows whats on the inside. Everyone has a costume. And it’s interesting to see how one evolves.
