Well, for one thing, it's the coolest high school newspaper in all the land. Watch our video and find out more.
Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

Although we cannot compare to the abstract Jackson Pollock or surreal Marcel Duchamp, we here at tb-two* have perfected an art: the hipster art of looking, well, poor. And hip. Who knows, maybe our efforts might end up at MoMA one day. Here are five ways to achieve the art of looking poor:
Whether you found your clothes at a thrift store or your mom’s closet, the tarnish on the metal buttons will be enough to flaunt that your clothes have lived through more wars than you have.
It’s all about the hair
Girls, wear high, messy buns — the higher the better. (Higher to heaven, closer to God, right?) Who needs a hairbrush; that’s why you have fingers. As for the guys, just don’t shave for three weeks; if you can grow a beard, you’d better take advantage of it.
Ruin everything you love
Bleach, shred, dye, spray paint and Sharpie your wardrobe. (Speaking of spray paint, be sure to read our spray-paint shirt DIY instructions at right.) Take some sandpaper to your jeans, or pay Abercrombie & Fitch to do it. Having runs in your tights has actually become acceptable, at least outside of the workplace, so work it.
Don’t pay attention to sizes
If a shirt is too large, don’t worry about it — let your silhouette be a mystery to others. Conversely, the tighter the pants, the better. Though there isn’t as much mystery with this look, you may get a few admirers.
T-shirts with slogans
Let it be a D.A.R.E. shirt from the 5th grade, or your mom’s old Blondie shirt, the more out of date, the better.
How to: tb-two* spray-paint shirt
1. Draw a template on heavier paper, or just print out our logo.
2. Use an X-acto knife to cut out the lettering. Be careful!
3. Take some spray paint (as many colors as your heart desires) and place your template over a blank shirt and spray away!
NOTE: In our version, first we took orange paint and made a raggedy oval outline. Next we took green paint and sprayed the logo, let the paint dry and did another round with black paint. When considering colors, go over with a light color first if you want a shadow effect. It’s easier to paint a darker color over a lighter one.
