Earworm (n)—that catchy, though sometimes unwarranted, 2-4 bar melody that won’t seem to get out of your head. My roommates and I are always humming. Sometimes we’ve all caught on to Iggy Azalea’s Fancy, and sometime we might as well record ourselves as a living mashup. Always getting music “stuck” in our heads, I figured…

It’s Sunday at 9PM. You and your friends gather around your television—or more likely, the HBO GO screen on your laptop—and settle in for the new episode of Game of Thrones. The cellos and basses strike that familiar chord, and you are transported to Westeros, the Wall, or wherever your White Walker heart desires. Though…

Annie are you OK? Will you tell us, that you’re OK? You start nodding your head as you mouth the words to the 1987 hit, Smooth Criminal. But imagine that instead of hearing Michael Jackson’s falsetto voice, you hear—and watch—as two young cellists literally tear it up on stage. That’s right, I said cellists. It…

Modern technology aids and amplifies our relationship to music. We can store, categorize, purchase, and exchange music. We can digitize our instruments and synthesize our voices. This new musical world provides us with a level of involvement and participation unseen before our time. And when I thought that I had seen it all—from YouTube mashups…

Originating as an outgrowth of African American folk music in the early 20th century, Jazz became an outlet for anyone with a story to tell. And because there have been so many iterations of the genre, I think that it is almost impossible not to find at least one that resonates with you. Though we…

Your “Intro to Philosophy” paper is due in 24 hours—so, you open a new Word document, grab an M&M cookie from Wiseys, plug your headphones into your ears and click the first “Paper Writing” or “Midterm Jams” playlist on Spotify. The gentle notes of Claude Debussy’s “Clair de lune” begin to reverberate through your headphones,…

Nestling itself into the cozy neighborhood on Wisconsin Ave, Pho Viet & Grille brings the Georgetown area a relatively inexpensive yet satisfying new eatery. This little café just north of Q St. aims to attract the pho-loving crowd that wants to avoid the trek to Rosslyn for their Vietnamese gastro-fix.

Depicting just one place in space—yet over many moments in time—Charles Ritchie slows us down just enough to notice those ordinary yet beautiful “subjects that we pass by every day.” As the artist spoke and displayed his work on a projector before his exhibition officially opened yesterday at Georgetown’s Spagnuolo gallery, one got the sense that his works were large and overwhelming—until, of course, viewed in the gallery.
