‘Hung for the Holidays’

I love Christmas music as much as anyone else, but it’s no secret that hearing the same holiday hits can become as repetitive as watching Ralphie shoot his eye out for 24 hours. To combat this, record companies frequently release fresh interpretations of classic tunes…

Senior column: We gon’ be alright

The great philosopher Ferris Bueller once said, “Life moves pretty fast; If you don’t stop and look around every once and a while, you could miss it.” I love that quote, and I love that movie, but the reality behind Ferris’ words never really meant…

One Direction’s new day begins with ‘Made in the A.M.’

Before you read any further, I feel obligated to share with you that I don’t know much, if anything, about One Direction. I’m aware of the basics (like what the guys’ names are and a couple of their popular songs), but anything outside of that…

‘Master of None’: Netflix’s sitcom masterpiece

When “Girls” debuted on HBO in 2012, many hailed series creator and star Lena Dunham as “the voice of our generation.” If “generation” refers to the well-to-do offspring of famous people who have no real problems in life, then sure, that’s accurate. For the rest…

Bradley’s ‘High Fidelity’ is number one, with a bullet

When adapting a movie into a musical, a thin line between good and garbage quickly makes itself present during the process. Example: I had the displeasure of watching an off-Broadway performance of the stage version of “Dirty Dancing” during my sophomore year of high school.…

The debate over Donald

If there’s one thing in this world that I dislike more than the Boston Celtics, it would be politicians. I’m also not a fan of people who are rude. If you put two and two together, it’s safe to say that the blossoming presidential race…

Flashback Friday: 2015-10-16
