Cooking Up Predictions for the Great British Baking Show

In a season premiere that began with a truly absurd sequence featuring the judges and hosts dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz (1939) (including Paul Hollywood aptly costumed as the heartless Tin Man), and ended with the characteristic wholesome group hug given to the contestant going home, five bakers emerged from the rest…

Olivia Gatwood’s “When I Say That We Are All Teen Girls” is one of my most favorite poems of all time. If you do not know me, you might not know that I spend about 60 percent of my daily words talking about Teens and why I think they are so important. To be young…

Cats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtSd844cI7U Katie: Hi, God. It’s me, Katie. I have a few questions, but I guess my first one is what in the fresh hell is this? Some of the cats are wearing clothes in addition to their fur—does this mean that the ones who have opted not to are scurrying around in the nude?…

Summer Time is a collection of stories about Voice staffers’ experiences over summer break. I woke up from my lazy Saturday afternoon snooze to see my four best friends splayed in comfortable nap-positions across the cabin floor, just like me. Electric Guest’s “Dear to Me” hummed softly from an actual jukebox by the kitchenette. Since…

The music industry has a new reason to worry, and it’s all because of a certain country-rap meme song. Lil Nas X, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter who was virtually unknown a year ago, a $30 beat purchased online from a Dutch producer, and a racially tinged Billboard chart controversy combined to make “Old Town Road” the…

When I saw that a new trailer for It: Chapter Two (2019) had been posted online yesterday, it took me a long time to build up the courage to watch it. The first movie absolutely terrified me and I assumed that just watching the trailer for the second film would give me enough nightmare fuel…

The Meme Files: “Me Explaining” and Abstract Familiarity

Many of the internet memes of recent memory both gain traction and really take off because they are derived from familiar pop culture visuals.  “Powerful Shaggy” is based upon a beloved character of a popular and enduring children’s cartoon. “Big Chungus” is just an image of Bugs Bunny taken out of its original context, as…

I don’t know about you, but at this point in the summer, I miss Georgetown a lot, it’s been getting to my feelings. I miss my friends, my Henle room, the smell of the trees in the Spring, and just sometimes, the classes. As a student with terrible coping mechanisms, I listen to sad songs…
