Comprised of indie, folk, pop, and alt elements, this…

Critical Voices: Ryan Adams, Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams’ career has followed many musical twists and turns, perhaps best evidenced by the 13 albums and countless musical collaborations he has released since 2000. After a 3-year hiatus, Ryan Adams is back with his 14th, self-titled studio album– a melancholy, moody, and predictable roller coaster of rock and blues. It’s obvious that Adams…

Ed Sheeran’s performance this past Saturday at the Merriweather Post Pavilion stop on his Multiply tour was, in a word, faultless. From the crowd-pleasing sing-alongs, to the talented freestyle, to the acoustic melodies performed in typical Sheeran-esque fashion—the one-man band managed so much versatility in one show that even the reluctant fathers resembled their fanatic,…

This column originally appeared in The Georgetown Voice. It can be found on the main site, here.  When we look at our lives in hindsight, we tend to see the events as having fallen into place, like puzzle pieces naturally forming their way into the bigger picture—except that’s not how puzzles work. Puzzles take time, effort,…

Looking in to Look Out: Wyeth and Windows

Windows can be an opening to the outdoors. They can provide glimpses into enclosed, secret rooms or become gateways to unreachable places. But the square or rectangular shape of windows can also be limiting, restricting our view to a simple geometric scene and shaping our eyes to see a specific perspective. With the constant chaos…

Free in DC: Part I

By:

DC becomes a ghost town on the weekends, where one can walk for blocks and blocks in its concrete jungle and only pass a few families of confused tourists looking for the Mall and pregnant yuppie couples on their way to brunch. But amongst the lonely buildings waiting for their high-powered employees to flood in…

Latest Doctor Who is a Pleasure

The third episode of Season Eight of Doctor Who, The Robots of Sherwood, pits one English legend against another. It’s a lighthearted romp penned by longtime Who and Sherlock scribe Mark Gatiss, who relishes the opportunity for another Doctor-meets-historical-figure episode. His script is light on plot and logic, but heavy on humor. And it’s just…

The following contains spoilers for season three of Veep. Hyperlinked material may contain objectionable language. While I sincerely meant my reflections last week on how Netflix’s House of Cards has aligned with a deep public cynicism toward American politics, they were, nevertheless, a bit myopic in scope. Call it a kind of televised Americentrism, or…

On Saturday morning, about 800 freshmen and transfer students gathered in Red Square to participate in service projects in Ward 7. My group of fifty-three traveled by bus across the Anacostia River to our site, Fort Mahan. We stepped out of the air-conditioned bus and walked through the hot, humid air to a hill covered…
