"Milk and Vine" : A Must Read for Vine Lovers

Wondering what to get your vine-lover this Christmas?

"Milk and Vine" : A Must Read for Vine Lovers
Alex Holt

Have you ever heard of Rupi Kapur’s anthology of poems called “Milk and Honey”? Well Emily Beck and Adam Gasiewski made their spin on it and dedicated to the famous (now dead) social media platform Vine. Each page consists of some of what were the most 6 second videos at the time and added small drawings similar to those that were in Rupi Kapur’s poems.

According to NY Magazine, Milk and Vine was first published on Amazon by 18-year-old Emily Beck and 19-year-old Adam Gasiewski late last October as a joke. The young couple, both first-year students at Temple University, had decided to try to publish “some sort of book” on a whim after one of their friends had gotten a lot of praise for publishing their own website”. The two published the book as a joke and never thought it would end up as Amazon’s #1 Best Seller.

Since "Milk and Vine" has gotten so much publicity recently, naturally some have begun to criticize. Some people are arguing that they took all of the vines from viners without crediting them at all. This is true, which is a reason why Gasiewski and Beck plan on coming out with a second Milk and Vine book crediting viners who are mentioned. However, many other viners are happy that their supposedly 'dead' vines are once again getting recognition. Viner Brandon Williams posted on his Instagram one of his vines features in Milk and Vine and called it “iconic”.

You can currently get "Milk And Vine" on Amazon here , for only $3.79 and with two-day shipping with Amazon Prime membership. I got my hands on a copy and it was money well spent.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
