Running through my Mind: A Collection of Musings

When the weather is nice, I like to lace up my sneakers and go for a jog along the Potomac River and Glover Archbold Parkway. If you are ever looking for a refreshing morning jog, this route provides the calm of the canal path, the early morning Georgetown streets, and the scenic view of the…

Doctor Who Ramps Up To An Exciting Finale

By:

In the age of the Internet, it’s tough to pull off a legitimately surprising plot twist. Everything that writers try to hide from audiences will eventually get revealed, whether it’s through leaked scripts or photos from the set. That’s why it’s too bad that the big reveal at the end of the latest Doctor Who…

Critical Voices: Cold War Kids, Hold My Home

About a year and a half ago, I went to a Cold War Kids concert with some of my friends. In one of the band’s most popular songs, “Hang Me Up To Dry”, there is a deliberately off-putting sequence of piano chords. A friend who wasn’t familiar with the band thought that they had messed…

The Weekly List: Free Henle

By:

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/clibre/free-henle” ] Novembers on the Hilltop bring their usual brisk days, and a concurrent increase in time spent indoors and bothersome additional layers of clothing. All of this can leave fair Hoyas feeling a bit hemmed in and pent up. This fall, however, residents of the Henle Village are feeling more trapped than usual….

The CW’s Supernatural, thriving well beyond the average television shelf life, premiered its 10th season on October 7th. Since 2005, the show has followed the lives of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester, two brothers who fight a countless number of supernatural creatures and are constantly revived by both the demonic and divine….

The Weekly List: Escape

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/carleytucker/the-escape-folk-and-bluegrass” ] The word midterm is definitely a misnomer, especially when the infamous “midterm season” seems to last for about two months. The late night studying, last minute cramming, and steady stream of tests can become overbearing and, at times, simply annoying. I’m sure in those stressful moments, our minds have wandered to happier…

If you’ve ever been to the Georgetown Waterfront and looked out on the Potomac, you may have been struck with what looks like a forest floating in the middle of the river. I sure was, until a couple of friends explained to me that it was Roosevelt Island, a 90 acre National Park, accessible by…

Youtube’s Cultural Shift

Seven or eight years ago, most people only visited YouTube to watch the latest viral video and, as a vlogger, bringing in one thousand subscribers was a miracle. You could set up a camera in your bedroom and, if you had new and interesting content, you could create a fanbase. But nowadays, successful YouTubers have…

The scent of Halloween fills my nostrils. That same thick, white smoke used for haunted houses pours over the stage and wafts over the heads of concert goers in the mysterious, hazy space that is the 9:30 club. Spectators line the balcony, circling the venue, while a mass of people mill around the stage, waiting…

Dreaming of comfortable, yet upscale Italian comfort food in downtown DC, owners Kaiser and Michael Gill opened Noelia Italian Kitchen in mid-July. The food, while not as dreamy, elicits that same comfort and warmth of home that is Italian cooking. The safety of Italian dining draws families and young professionals alike to try to these…
