Planned Parenthood just turned down a donation of $500,000. At first glance, that seems like an awfully dumb thing to do. Why would an organization that needs so much support right now turn down a donation that large? Because the proposed donation was from Tucker Max. Yes, the same Tucker Max that has made a career of being a slimy, misogynist womanizer.
Is there anything better than spending a day reading on the beach, getting a golden glow, and sipping on a Pina Colada? I mean, I'm just guessing that would be the best. My beach days are usually more about trying to keep my hair from birds-nesting in the wind, spraying on SPF 75, and half-heartedly drinking warm beer that's on the verge of boiling in the sun. But I do love opening up a good book, getting lost in the story, and ignoring the fact that there's an elderly man walking back and forth wearing a a speedo thong.
Heat waves out west, Noah’s Ark-style rain in the east, Brad leaving Rachel Zoe…the world is in a tailspin this week! There was a lot that went down and a lot to discuss, but fear not. Just like all those mornings you needed to, uh, “consult” Cliff’s Notes about the reading you missed, we’ve once again organized all the best items of the week in one easy cheat sheet.
I have a confession to make. And it falls somewhere between extremely saddening and super confusing: Tucker Max is my hero.
Ever since I flipped through the many college brochures in high school, I had my own college fantasy. I saw frat boys making out with sorority girls under a sycamore tree in the quad a Sports Illustrated swimsuit poster while double-fisting a Coors. It's a strange college ideal, but let's face it: in college, hooking up comes as natural as canning two Red Bull 30 minutes deep into a study session.
I decided to take a different approach to this weekend's Saturday Read. Usually, I try to recommend my readers a great book. But this week, I'm looking to use a book to make a point. "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" is a controversial memoir by Tucker Max.
My opinion of Tucker Max is complex. While I can't say I agree with his choice of lifestyle, I did read his book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, recommended it to others and have it listed as one of my favorite books on Facebook. To be honest, I thought it was hysterical and could see myself writing a similar book.
I really don’t get why self-proclaimed a**hole Tucker Max is such a big deal. I looked at his website for the first time in high school after hearing my guy friends talk about how hilarious it was, but I came away from it totally unimpressed—so the guy gets really drunk, sleeps with girls, and occasionally sh*ts himself. What’s so funny about that?

This week, we focus on one of the most intense rivalries in all of sports. Only eight miles (and immeasurable animosity) separate the campuses of UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University. Both are excellent schools with terrific athletic traditions.
“It’s about living the life you want to live, not the life others push onto you. It’s about being the person you want to be, not the person other people want you to be, and it’s about enjoying the time you have.” Where did these wise words of wisdom come from? None other than the infamous Tucker Max.
Not even a month into my senior year of college and I’ve already skipped two classes, started my h…
“My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole,” or so begins Tucker Max’s website. And he ain’t lying…
