Unshelved: What’s the Right Thing to Do?

I’ve always had a really close relationship with my dad. We have the same bizarre sense of humor and love of music and movies. I have vivid memories of falling asleep in front of the TV leaning on his shoulder, struggling to keep our eyes open after watching our third movie. I was raised on...

In a Perfectly Crafted, Emotionally Resonant Finale, The Americans Says Goodbye

The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The Washington Summit on nuclear arms reduction took place in December 1987. While this last event aptly set the tense stage for The Americans’ sixth and final season, the first two predicted its ending. Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings’ (Keri Russell) mission...

A Lot Happened In Pop Culture Last Month, But Our Website Was Down and I Was Lazy

In the past month, Childish Gambino released the most earth-shattering song and music video I’ve ever seen, the Met Gala convinced me to convert to Catholicism (and then the Catholic Conservative twittersphere unconvinced me), Kanye West dropped what I consider to be a terrible 23 minutes of music, and Ocean’s 8 murdered me and then...

The world of the blockbuster was turned upside-down this past week. First came the announcement that Robert Downey, Jr. would be joining Chris Evans in Captain America 3 to kick off Marvel’s “Civil War” arc.

Finances are private. Everyone knows that. We learn this reality from a young age. We teach kids that asking for such information is not polite, and they, in turn, carry this attitude with them, passing it on. In American society, we’ve made the collective decision to keep personal financial information a secret in almost all…

On Tuesday, during a European 2016 Championship qualifying match between Serbia and Albania, a small drone flew over the pitch carrying a low-hanging flag that depicted an image promoting the idea of Greater Albania.  The match, played in Belgrade, Serbia, had to be abandoned soon after the flag’s appearance in the 43rd minute.  Much of…

Once midterm season rises and rears its ugly head, it is necessary to remind yourself that there is a world outside of Economics tests and Philosophy papers. For me, this meant loading up a Volkswagen Golf (thank you Zipcar membership*) with tents, food, and four of my friends and heading straight into the great outdoors….

Following Wednesday’s victory, the Royals will return to the World Series for the first time since the 1985.  Both NLCS teams, on the other hand, have been World Series regulars.  The Giants won it all in 2010.  A year later, the Cardinals took their spot as World Champions.  In 2012, the Giants and Cardinals faced…

Following the release of their popular single “Bridges” roughly a year ago, brother-sister duo Broods have just released their first album, Evergreen. The band is comprised of New Zealand’s Georgia and Caleb Nott. Together they produce an indie, electronic sound that gives off a morose vibe through many of their songs. Although there is a…

Growing up as a huge Florida Gator fan, I have been firmly immersed within the religion that is SEC football. And just like any other belief system, the creed of SEC football carries with it several central truths. For those ensnared by the culture of the Southeastern Conference, it is established fact that the SEC…

This show, which runs until April 12, 2015, displays works by six 21st century Latino artists. Their work represents people in the process of…

HOT  1. Dallas Cowboys This is a no-brainer; anytime you can beat the Seahawks in Seattle you deserve to skyrocket to the top of the Hot List. Demarco Murray was high on the Hot List earlier this season and for good reason. He continued to impress this week, despite facing the vaunted Seattle defense. The Cowboys…

It’s a great time to be an avid fan of television. We live in a golden age of TV, where you can throw a stone and hit at least three quality shows. With networks like HBO, AMC and the BBC offering up programs that garner both critical and popular acclaim, there certainly is no shortage…
