Concert Preview: Panic! At The Disco, Jan. 20, Capital One Arena

From its formation in 2004, Panic! At The Disco has maintained its presence as one of the biggest faces of rock in the 21st century. Their debut studio album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out (2005) put them at the forefront of emo pop, with the single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” certified double platinum...

At Arena Stage, Indecent is a Requiem for Art’s Endurance

Ghosts come alive at the start of Arena Stage’s production of Indecent, the dust rising from the actors’ heavy overcoats in poetic plumes. Lemml (Ben Cherry, bearded and earnest) serves as our narrator, introducing the audience to the ashen bodies that drift to center stage as he sets the scene. In those first few minutes,...

Epic Adventure Aquaman Reaches for Greatness

For DC Comics fans, it has been a rough few years. Between the cliffhanger ending of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and the cultural significance of Black Panther, DC seems to need to prove itself as a worthy cinematic contender.

Problems With Women’s March Require Introspection and Action

The first Women’s March took place on Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, as a response to his sexism and policies designed to limit women’s autonomy.

Community action must accompany Amazon’s move to the District

Amazon’s “HQ2” is coming to the D.C. metropolitan area this year. In an editorial last March, we noted our concerns about the possible negative effects of Amazon coming to D.C. and urged elected officials to reconsider the offer. Unfortunately, that deal is now official. But make no mistake; this move is a disingenuous ploy to...

The Fault in Our Novels

When I was in fifth grade, I had seven boyfriends. All of them were tall, dark, handsome, and entirely fictional. I’ve had a complicated love affair with Young Adult (YA) fiction. While its page-turning plots and fantastical worlds have stretched my imagination, its utter lack of protagonist diversity and problematic depiction of romance made me...

Behind Your Back

On a given day, one-fifth to two-thirds of conversation is dedicated to gossip. On the higher end, that is around three hours per day, 21 hours per week, and 156 hours per year. Just to put that into perspective, if you spent 15 minutes of your day defecating, that is only 91.25 hours per year....

Aquaman‘s Important Contribution to Superhero Diversity

There is an alarming amount of hate on the Internet for Aquaman (2018). Luckily, I’m here to explain what the haters are missing. The latest installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is a big departure from the too-serious films of Zack Snyder, the most recent being the ill-received Justice League (2017). Director James Wan,...

Some Rap Songs – Hope Amidst Grief

I listened to Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris (2013) for the first time during my junior year of high school. I had just moved from the coast of South Texas to Arizona. I was about two months into the school year and living in a bedroom with my younger brother, doing marching band in triple-digit weather four...

O Aquaman, O Aquaman, Or 12 movies that made it possible

[Disclaimer: I am an aggressive Marvel fan, and in all fairness, probably should not have been allowed to review this movie. My phone lock screen is a high quality .png pic of Tom Holland, and I am writing this on my laptop with a Captain America sticker while sitting in my Spider-Man onesie.] Imagine a...
