Discovering Radiohead’s OK Computer Twenty Years Later

Twenty years ago this week, Radiohead released its genre defying—and defining—OK Computer to widespread critical acclaim. The album was released just four months after I was born, and my parents, being Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash fans, did not keep me in touch with the latest trends in music. Since then, Radiohead has existed in...

That Show You Like Is Coming Back In Style

That show that you like is coming back in style. When Twin Peaks first aired in 1990, it was a huge hit with audiences. It combined elements of traditional murder mysteries with surrealist imagery and character drama. The question “Who killed Laura Palmer?” will go down in history as one of the most iconic questions...

What to Binge Watch: Big Little Lies

A community of 1st grade mothers in Monterey, California meet murder mystery: perhaps not your average summer binge-watch session, but it’s definitely worth it for HBO’s Big Little Lies, a 7 episode mini series featuring a plethora of stars like Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley. Upon the beginning of the first...

American Assassin – teaser trailer #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwHAGKxsbcg Eman: American Assassin is based on the prequel to a very popular series of spy thriller novels, which I’m told are pretty mature gritty novels. Here’s hoping they don’t try to rob it of the novels’ tension and themes in order to tone it down just for that oh-so-coveted PG-13…

Brynn, Devon, and Emily share what they’re enjoying and looking forward to in arts and entertainment this week.   Brynn: Although I rarely have time to watch full television shows, I can usually spare an hour every now and then to watch a stand-up comedy special.

In 2010, I went to the movie theater six times to see the same movie. It was the movie that defined my love of film; and it was the first time I started getting into the technical workings that made films great, as well as the thematically rich subtexts that film could offer. I was…

Here’s a collection of songs whose lyrics sound, well, weird. But a kooky title doesn’t necessarily lead to a strange song (not that that’s a bad thing, though). The lyrics tend to be unusual, the message unique, but the music itself is even more charming due to the unconventional words within it. 1. McFabulous: “I…

At the crux of turmoil, whether it be political, social, spiritual, or ascetic, man comes to the breaking point – not a man, but man itself. Man is the ultimatum of existence and experience, and at man’s breaking point, we find the true yolk of the fragile egg that is self-conflict. Self-importance is the center…

It’s been a long time since AFC Ajax reached its last peak. In the late ’90s, the Dutch side reached two straight Champions League finals, winning in 1995 against AC Milan and losing to Juventus on penalties in 1996, and added a third straight semi-final appearance in 1997, again losing to Juventus. Those weren’t quite…
