Natural Simplicity: Metallics at the Touchstone Gallery

At first glance, Mary D. Ott’s metallic paintings seem to be characterized by their lack of complexity; her aptly titled piece “Gold on Black” refers to a dark canvas interrupted by thin, golden strokes, while “Copper” is a copper backdrop interspersed with flashes of silver. However, upon further inspection, Ott’s allusion to natural elements becomes...

A United Kingdom: Not a Failure, But Hardly a Success

Biographical films are tough as they tell the story of usually unknown real-life heroes that rose to the occasion and defied the system. Therefore, on one hand, filmmakers feel pressured to honestly present the ‘based-on-a-true-story’ lives that they portray, while, on the other, they must also entertain and please audiences, if only for the sake...

The Lego Batman Movie Builds a Better Batman

The Lego system has served as a building block for many people’s childhoods. With Legos, children and adults can create while limited only by the bricks in hand and the ideas in mind. Buildings are built, worlds are created—and then more bricks are needed. The possibility of Lego must have been attractive to game designers...

Why We Need to #TrustWomen and #DeleteUber

Last weekend, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler posted a blog about her experience with the company’s use of human resources (HR) and managerial tactics to cover up blatant sexual harassment, tactics which are sexist and disgusting.

Vote Mack/Andino for GUSA Executive

As the GUSA executive election approaches, the Georgetown community is once again reminded of the student organization that ostensibly serves as the voice of the students to the administration. GUSA campaigns are typically spaces reserved for posturing on the parts of candidates as they appeal to various student groups by promising to bring change and...

Proactive Prevention Can Save the Green Ash From Invasive Beetles

On the well traversed walk from ICC to the Front Gates, it’s hard to miss perhaps the most famous, distinctive, photographed, and climbed of Georgetown’s trees: “The King” Green Ash. Even the most reclusive students can recall a time when the low limbs of this giant enticed them. A time when the grandeur of this...

Carrying On: Untangling the Art From the Artist

I have always been in love with movies. Beautiful, gritty, or suspenseful, it doesn’t matter. When done right, a film has the power to place me in a different world, a world more dazzling, more terrifying, or more outlandish than the one in which I reside. A soaring piece of music, a particularly cutting dialogue...

A Not-So-Definitive Ranking of Kanye’s Cover Art

When The Life of Pablo was released, I came across this tweet linking Kanye’s previous three albums to the three phases of Pablo Picasso’s artwork, which might’ve been a stretch, but definitely resonated with the singer’s ability to blend the visual with the musical. One of the most important aspects of Kanye’s art is the...

How DeMarcus Cousins made me a Kings fan, again

I put on my DeMarcus Cousins t-shirt with a blissful ignorance that all Kings fans experienced Sunday morning as I prepared for Boogie’s third All-Star game. I said to a friend that he was going to get a triple-double, only half jokingly. Boogie hit a three pointer, but then the Kings went for a hail...
