Midterm season hit in full force last week, so after spending a weekend working on a 10 page paper and studying I desperately needed to get off campus and into the real world. So I asked myself: what could I do on a Tuesday evening, for free, and in walking distance from the Front Gates?…

The summer of 1995 saw an ugly divorce between Prince and Warner Brothers Records, with whom Prince had signed in 1978. While under contract with Warner Brothers, Prince released several classic records, including Purple Rain and Sign O’ the Times, and became one of the world’s biggest stars. Tensions arose between the electric performer and…

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Wheeeeel of Fortune! Deal or No Deal? These phrases are etched in our memory from wasting days away on our couches with the flu, Wednesday night neighborhood viewing parties, or even a spontaneous showing because you were intrigued after that episode of American Idol ran late.

There’s a certain set of neuroses associated with playing music that will resonate with anyone who’s ever picked up an instrument: that during practice you’ll out yourself as incompetent to your bandmates, that the inevitable screw-up will happen during a critical performance, that eventually you’ll encounter a part that is simply beyond your ability, etc….

American cinema has always been defined by its ability to innovate. Westworld, a small sci-fi movie released in 1973 starring Yul Brynner, changed the way movies would be made forever. It was the first film to use two-dimensional computer images, which would eventually evolve into what we now call CGI, or Computer Generated Images. Westworld…

As a native Californian, there are few things I find more pleasurable than fresh, locally sourced produce. Just thinking about leafy, fresh-picked collard greens warms my soul; as far a social movements go, the Farm to Table movement is near and dear to my heart. Lucky for me, and other produce-lovers out there, Georgetown offers…

In the middle of their set, lead singer of Twenty One Pilots Tyler Joseph said, “When you have the microphone you can do whatever you want,” and that’s exactly what the duo from Columbus, Ohio did on their second night at the 9:30 Club.

Courtroom dramas, in film and elsewhere, are generally concerned with lawyers. This makes sense–after all, lawyers are the main actors in the courts, presenting arguments and making cases, locked in rhetorical combat with the fate of the accused at stake. But one factor not often considered as an active force in the courtroom is the…

Our taxi driver carefully guided us through the maze of cars that lined the dark, narrow street. He seemed a little confused dropping off a group of college students in front of a church located on the corner of a quiet road. Leaves rustled and a brisk wind blew across our faces, reminders of the…
