Camp David  shows care for its audience

Camp David  shows care for its audience

The first sign is the smoke.  It’s not fire in the theater, but a kind of incendiary nonetheless—a rich, woody haze wafting from the omnipresent pipe of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat (Khaled Nabawy) that helps honor, for the next two hours, what it means to be an audience. The audience has never been more rewarded…

The Rothko Room: Another World

Final exams are almost upon us, and many times I wish I could escape the tense atmosphere building up in Lauinger Library and spilling across campus. I wish I had a place to go that would pull my attention away from my essays and chemistry problem sets. Luckily, the Phillips Collection’s Rothko Room provides a space…

I’m not sure how a comic like writer Matt Fraction and artist Chip Zdarsky’s Sex Criminals #5  got past an editor. It’s not bad (in fact, I would say it’s one of the best comics of the year), but good lord in heaven, this has a premise that I don’t think I could ever explain to…

Depeche Mode is a collection of the most swagged out and awe-inspiring men of our time. “101” is one of the greatest concerts of all time. Dave Gahan literally rose from the grave. Martin Gore wrote “Personal Jesus.” They even singlehandedly shut down West Los Angeles: One Direction ain’t got nothing on them. But it’s…

The following article is the second part of The Case for Community. The first part was posted last Tuesday and can be found here. Welcome back to “The Case for Community,” an online series in which I go through the history of the show to answer the age old question: should Community be renewed for…

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…

The Power of the Photo

We spend a lot of money on big, new, fancy cameras in order to capture perfection: a golden sunset over clear Caribbean waters, a young budding poppy hidden among a field of wildflowers, or the exhilarated smile after a last minute basket. We become set on capturing beauty and joy in its most perfect form….

Missed the Mad Men premiere last weekend? No worries! Ian Philbrick breaks down the episode, so that you’re all set for episode two! Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has never looked more out of place than he does in “Time Zones,” the premier episode of the first half of Mad Men’s seventh and final season, which…

Only Lovers Left Alive  is "cool"

Pale-skinned, blood-sucking creatures of the night, spend their time listening to obscure music and traipsing around the ruins of Detroit. No, this isn’t a documentary about Midtown, but you can be forgiven for thinking so. These are the subjects of Jim Jarmusch’s latter-day vampire film, Only Lovers Left Alive, a film that revels so much…
