Gotham Presents a Fresh Origin Story

Over the last decade, comic book heroes have found their home on the silver screen. While Marvel has created an empire in movie theaters, DC Comics has carved out a niche in television to go along with their struggling movie franchise. Arrow, The CW’s Green Arrow-based program, has found success in its first two seasons…

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…

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/mkb108/weekly-list-the-cover-set” ] Welcome to the Weekly List! Now for you music fans out there, there is something fun and exciting that comes out on very rare occasions, much like a unicorn.

Latest Doctor Who Successfully Draws on Roots

Latest Doctor Who Successfully Draws on Roots

By:

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…

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…

The Weekly List(en): Can’t Stop The Chillwave

[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…

Critical Voices: Generationals, Alix

Any band foraying into the realm of indie-pop can attest to the difficulties that this genre presents. Trying to create a catchy, high-energy sound without coming across as empty and shallow is difficult. Alix, the fourth studio album by Generationals, straddled this fine line deftly. The New Orleans, indie-pop duo, born from the high school…

Critical Voices: Tweedy, Sukierae

Critical Voices: Tweedy, Sukierae

By:

Sukierae, father-son duo Jeff and Spencer Tweedy’s first album, plays like a twenty track long jam session, with all the good and bad that implies. The duo, going by the name “Tweedy,” takes a relaxed, meandering approach to music. It’s a guitar heavy album with experimental prog-rock leanings, wistful, classic rock overtones, and the occasional…

Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby  Overcomes Limitations

Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby  Overcomes Limitations

By:

One thing that needs to be understood about The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is that it was originally conceived and screened as two films: Him and Her. These films, which both depict the same story of a collapsing marriage, were filmed separately and are each told from the perspective of one member of the central…

Walking down U Street towards the Howard Theatre’s classic, regal exterior, I saw the awakening signs of the neighborhood’s dynamic nightlife. I arrived 30 minutes before doors opened, and a thirty-person line had already formed. Thanks to some very kind fellow Hoyas, I ended up third in line to walk in. Considering that the theater…
