Patty Jenkins Brings Wonder Woman—and Girl Power—to Georgetown

On June 14th, a little girl named Isabella stood at the corner of P Street and Wisconsin, clutching a Wonder Woman Barbie and wearing a pajama set styled after the superhero’s iconic spangled costume. Next year, she would start second grade at a D.C. elementary school, but today, Isabella was part of the growing crowd...

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...

One of the perks of apartment living is, of course, the newfound decorating space. One of the downsides of decorating, however, is the costly endeavor of finding art objects with which to fill the blinding white-washed walls, and choosing fabrics that can hide the 70s-style cushions on the Henle couches and lounge chairs (unless that’s…

The first half of the Major League Baseball season ended with two unlikely division leaders. The Oakland Athletics headed into the season without two of their most important pieces from 2013, having lost young pitcher Jarrod Parker to injury and 18 game-winner Bartolo Colon to free agency. However, by stringing together a typical Oakland lineup…

Now for you music fans out there, there is something fun and exciting that comes out on very rare occasions, much like a unicorn.

Although the MLB awards won’t be announced for two months, baseball fans have started to engage in the yearly tradition of debating who deserves which award. The Mets’ Jacob deGrom and the White Sox’s Jose Abreu appear to be the consensus Rookies of the Year, while Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and Felix Hernandez of…

Following last week’s rather unconventional Listen, it was probably a smart thing for Who-showrunner Stephen Moffat to return the series to its more formulaic roots. Time Heist, written by longtime Moffat cohort Steve Thompson, is an engaging, twisty, and, best of all, exciting addition to Series Eight, and it is easily Thompson’s best contribution to…

The territory of Gibraltar has 30,000 inhabitants, 11 of which took the field earlier this month against Poland in a qualifying match for UEFA Euro 2016.  The team got crushed, of course, because that’s what happens when a 2.3 square mile British territory plays against a middling European soccer power.  But who really cares?  We…

On February 14, after star freshman point guard Tyler Ennis hit a half-court shot to defeat Pittsburgh 58-56, Syracuse Athletics’ official Twitter account, @Cuse, tweeted “get your Tyler Ennis jersey while they are still available” and provided a link to an “anonymous” jersey bearing Ennis’s characteristic #11.  This tweet, which was promptly taken down, was…

Whenever I find myself emotionally deep in the cheap seats, I often turn to my favorite artists for the inspiration I need to move forward. For most of my years spent in the South, this support usually came from the likes of Johnny Cash and Ryan Adams, whose heartfelt lyrics could transport me out whatever…

October is just days away, and that means that the MLB playoffs are almost here. The playoffs consist of a few precious weeks of nail-biting for all, heartbreak for most, and eternal glory for a lucky few. A grueling season of 162 games can culminate in a single at-bat, and we bask in every second…

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/cumberdale/downtempo” width=”500″ height=”500″ ] Whether you’re in the zone at Lau or zoning out back out home, sometimes you just can’t handle lyric-driven music. This eight-song selection of atmospheric electronica (some call it chillstep, chillwave, or trip-hop) is guaranteed to be devoid of any lyrical meaning, opting instead for meditative ambience. Sink into the…
