Posted // December 6,2013 Dear GYA, Graduating college was a pretty big achievement in my life, sure. But nothing fills my soul with a sense of real purpose and accomplishment more than my monthly arguments with my student-loan officer. I look forward to these chats because whenever she reminds me that my student loans will haunt me for as long as I live, I laugh and remind her that I will happily perish in a horrible helicopter explosion before paying her single cent.
Posted // December 6,2013 With the holiday season rolling, parents are, as usual, looking for some kind of entertainment for the kids that they both can enjoy, as we rapidly approach the end of the year.
Posted // December 5,2013 Dear GYA, Eighty years ago today, Utah ratified the Twenty-first Amendment, which led to the end of Prohibition. Now, the citizens of Utah can enjoy state-sanctioned booze whenever they want ... except for Sundays ... and holidays ... and not in front of nudity ... and only with food ... and probably a bunch of other rules I can't keep track of anymore.

Posted // December 4,2013 Dear GYA, I want your readers to know that education is extremely important to me and that's why I'm making this issue my top priority for the 2015 Utah fiscal budget. Part of this process includes making sure every classroom has a brand-new Commodore Amiga 2000, that every student owns a state-issued abstinence kit, and that schools receive the most funding based on high test scores and proximity to white, upper-class neighborhoods.
Posted // December 4,2013 With our comedy scene continuing to blow up, it's becoming increasingly harder for some comedians to get noticed, what with the pool of new talent flowing in.
Posted // December 3,2013 The good news: Archer, the funniest animated series on TV, returns for Season 5 next month. The bad news: It’s moving to Mondays, a night FX has yet to crack. Remember The Riches? Exactly.
Posted // December 3,2013 Dear GYA, Cyber Monday was a huge success. Sure, I may have a horrible rash and my right arm is sore as hell, but Cyber Monday is that one magical day where it's totally cool to stay up all night, cybering with chicks, dudes, whatever--it's bananas. Anything to do tonight after a long, hard day of cybering? - Josh Fapper, Murray

Posted // December 2,2013 Dear GYA, Today is my last day as Utah Attorney General and it's definitely gonna be tough to leave this place. Yep, all those memories. (Wipes single tear from cheek.) Welp, if you need me, I'll be in my office -- gotta smash some laptops, get rid of these garbage bags full of shredded documents and set up my new Gmail account (firstname.lastname@example.org). Haha, I'm gonna miss this gig! Anything happening today to celebrate the end of a job well done? John Swallow

Posted // November 28,2013 While the console wars will start to rage on in the next few months, very little has changed for those making the games to begin with, beyond having new systems to play with and upgrade their performance to.
Posted // November 27,2013 Dear GYA, My wife asked me to pick up a bottle of wine for Thanksgiving at the liquor store on 400 South. So, as of this moment, I'm standing at the end of the line -- which is in Murray. Don't worry, I have enough food and water to make it through the night and, God willing, I'll be able to make this purchase by sometime early tomorrow morning. Anything happening after I'm done waiting in line at the liquor store? - Sir Edmund Hilary II, Murray
Posted // November 26,2013 Dear GYA, Seth Rogen and James Franco's parody of Kanye's Bound 2 was only the beginning -- I'm gonna take it even further. Seriously, what could possibly be funnier than Adam Sandle and me, singing Kanye's verses in "old-lady Adam-Sandler voice" while doing a Jack and Jill meets Bound 2 parody? Huh? Nothing. It's comedy dynamite. Seriously, anything happening today that can top that? - Adam Sandler

Posted // November 25,2013 Dear GYA, I can't believe they killed-off Brian "the talking dog" Griffin on Family Guy last night. It really hurts that Seth MacFarlane would have the the balls to remove a character from a show that no one watches. Let's just hope and pray this trend doesn't catch on and they kill off Frank Agnew from Low Winter Sun, or Max Black from 2 Broke Girls.

Posted // November 22,2013 Dear GYA, Years ago, I made a vow to never rake leaves again. I'm a firm believer that nature always takes care of itself, even when it comes to my yard. And now, after last night's mighty tempest, it would appear that all my leaves are conveniently placed on my neighbor Todd's lawn. Anything happening this weekend now that the wind took care of my leaf situation? Judd Flarsh, The Avenues
Posted // November 21,2013 Dear GYA, Yes, David Blaine is amazing. His new show is amazing; everything about David Blaine is amazing. But for the love of god, stop calling what he does magic tricks. They're illusions, damn it. Tricks are something whores do for money. Anything happening tonight as mesmerizing as a David Blaine illusion? - Gob Bluth
