Critical Voices: Jesus is King, Kanye West

I am a Christian. Growing up, my brothers and I were only allowed to listen to Christian music, excluding the occasional Whitney Houston song my dad would smuggle onto a long car ride. Harmony-driven gospel and alternative, hip-hop fusion were my Christian genres of choice, so my musical life consisted primarily of artists like TobyMac,...

A Great Cast Shambles Through a Middling Comedy Sequel in Zombieland: Double Tap

In the years since the original Zombieland (2009), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) have settled into their lives as a weird little family. They’ve taken shelter in the White House, turning it into their own zombie killing fortress/funhouse museum and are free to live in relative...

Laugh Your Head Off at Timothy Johnson’s Fables of Decapitation

Just one stroke of Timothy Johnson’s paintbrush bites like the blade of a guillotine, leaving his subjects headless and bleeding off of the canvas. The local artist’s latest exhibit, Fables of Decapitation: I knew I would die long ago, is a collection of paintings featuring himself and his friends along with a string of biblical,...

Proposed Ethics Reforms Will Only Make GUSA More Corrupt

This past summer, the Working Group on Reforms to the Senate Ethics and Oversight Committee prepared a report to propose solutions to many structural limitations that have undermined the Ethics Committee’s ability to provide proper oversight over GUSA. In the coming days, the Senate will consider a bill that will co-opt many of the suggestions...

Drawing from Dad

Underneath the signature honking nose of each man in my family is a resolute, standalone moustache. There is no beard, no soul patch, just pure ’stache. None of us look like Tom Selleck in Magnum, P.I. either, no; we all bear a sort of bristly, stubborn facial hair. Something about those preposterous whiskers is genuine...

Restore Neighborliness, Reorient SNAP

SNAP stands for Student Neighborhood Assistance Program, but over the years, the acronym has turned into a verb with a less-than-positive connotation. To be “SNAPsed,” in Georgetown students’ vernacular, doesn’t mean to be assisted. It describes an unpleasant, frustrating, and often demeaning experience. The program’s goals are noble—It aims to foster safety, respect, and peace...

Carrying On: The Pride and Prejudice Toward Reading

“I want to buy you something you’ll actually keep … Don’t you want something more appropriate for your age?” Those are just two of the things my great-aunt told me two years ago in Blackwell’s bookstore in London. She didn’t mean to be rude or hurtful, she was just expressing her disapproval of my reading...

Can Isaiah Thomas Come Back?

Isaiah Thomas has always been taken for granted; his career and his life have been built off of doing what seems impossible. Thomas has always been overlooked on NBA teams due to his height, which makes  him unable to defend most NBA players. At 5 feet 9 inches, his game has always been based off...

My Chemical Romance to Reunite in December for L.A. Comeback Show

It’s been six long years since My Chemical Romance, the beloved emo rock band, officially called it quits in 2013. For years, many fans speculated that the band might get back together, but eventually resigned themselves to the fact that their favorite group was gone for good—only alive in the still-churning depths of Tumblr. But...

Perfecting the Spy Thriller: Jack Ryan Returns to Prime Video

Last Thursday, Amazon Prime released season two of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan starring John Krasinski. Set in Venezuela, the show follows Ryan (John Krasinski) and his former boss Jim Greer’s (Wendell Pierce) investigation into corruption in the Venezuelan government and an illegal mining operation bankrolled by the Venezuelan president. But this season, Ryan isn’t a...

The Weekly List: Seven Songs We Think Greg Heffley Might Like

  Content Warning: This article discusses drug addiction and contains graphic descriptions.   I’ve been thinking a lot about endings: a side effect of the fall, of graduation, of being a thing that’s alive that won’t be at some point. I’m watching friends from high school get married. I’m watching friends from this place get...
