Who are the freaks?

BY DEREK COGHLAN
@ VOL 5 ON OCT 28, 2014

Derek Coghlan gets us motivated with the rage of a man who is tired of letting the "Freaks of Congress" controlling the situation of doing absolutely nothing! Also through the rage of a man who has been driven to the edge of insanity, Derek wakes the people up, and demand for his neighbors and fellow Americans to get out and vote in the up coming elections.

"They in a Man's World"

BY STUART GETTY
@ VOL 22 ON APR 11, 2017

Gender Neutral pronouns freak people out. The homogeneity of the ad and film industries freaks Stuart Getty out a whole lot more. 

A copywriter for 10 years, Stuart then decided to start making films. And started from the bottom all over again. Now they're here. Yep. They. Three years as a director and owner of thegettybrothers.com, Stu is stoked to have a (queer) film showing at TEDx this year (and last) as well as an unofficial showing at Sundance this past January in "The Oregon Room." They enjoy dancing, kombucha, and hanging with Princess Magic Face, their feline child.
