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...

Unshelved: The Power of Speech in Pygmalion

So I clearly had a lot of thoughts about Pygmalion. In another article, I wrote about whether I consider Eliza Doolittle to be a feminist role model. But now I want to talk about the politicization of speech and the imposition of behavioral constraints in this novel. Speech plays an essential role in Pygmalion. Eliza,...

When the 40th Ryder Cup Matches commence at the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland at the end of this month, the U.S. team, led by captain Tom Watson, will certainly have its work cut out for itself. While the recent Ryder Cups have been exciting to watch for even the most casual of golf fans, the…

  Peter Fanone (Col ‘17) is a double major in Theater and Government with a minor in Italian.  He’ll be performing at Kickback today. I sat down with Peter this weekend to talk about his musical style and his set for Kickback. How did you first get interested in music? It all started when I…

If you’re a fan of football in any way, shape, or form, then you’ve no doubt heard that magic Mario Balotelli moved his way on over to Merseyside last week. The mercurial mad man originally of Manchester City has made his triumphant return to the EPL after a relatively underwhelming spell playing for my favorite…

As the NFL season creeps towards the forefront of American sports yet again, the only certainty is that nothing is certain. Each Sunday brings a team or player out of obscurity, creating regional heroes and national sensations only to send them back into the shadows the next week. Do you remember the Colts’ incredible playoff…

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/mkb108/weekly-list” ] Hey guys and welcome to my first attempt at the Weekly List! My inspiration for this week’s playlist comes from the film Boyhood and that introspective happy-sad mood it evokes. Released on July 11, Richard Linklater’s hit independent film is a thought-provoking journey that took 12 years to make. It follows the…

After an exhausting drive from Boston, Massachusetts to Georgetown and an afternoon of moving heavy boxes into my room, my mom and I felt ready for a relaxing evening. So, instead of booking a hotel downtown or in Rosslyn as close to campus as possible, we decided to stay in Alexandria, Virginia. Exploring a different…

If the U.S. soccer team were a living room, goalkeeper Tim Howard, on the squad since 2007, would be a couch— but not like the beer-soaked couch that’s travelled with you since back in the day. He’s more like a fine leather sectional , both sturdy and stylish, something that’s on every homeowner’s wish list….

There’s something about Seattle, Washington and the surrounding area that breeds angsty musical prowress like nowhere else. The city has given birth to artists such as Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Eddie Vedder, Band of Horses, the Head and the Heart, and many others. And it was 17 years ago that out of this creative power house…

Beyonce is revered as an idol. But, when paired with Jay Z, she transforms into a goddess. Together, the Carters become a dynamic duo, selling out concerts and creating an obsessive (bordering on scary) fan following. Their work not only as a couple but also as musicians demonstrates the power and benefits of artistic collaboration….

It felt like Christmas morning. It was finally here, the single most important day of the year, the day I for which I had waited the entirety of an agonizing, regretful year. It was a day when dreams would be born and crushed, friendships broken, and dynasties created. It was a day for champions, for…
