Critical Voices: Kitten, "Kitten"

By:
06/27/2014

With a stage presence like Dave Gahan and a distinctly New Wave sound, Kitten frontwoman Chloe Chaidez is back with a vengeance. This week, after almost five years of teasing with EPs, the Los Angeles-based band finally released their eponymous debut album. It’s been a long time coming, but there’s no question that this is…

Critical Voices: Lucy Hale, The Road Between

By:

Lucy Hale takes a road straight through mediocre pop country on her debut LP, The Road Between. The singer turned actress turned…singer…spends the album trying to be herself but comes out something of a boring cross between herself, Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert. Hale’s Swift songs fit the right mold. Some follow the pattern of…

In 1949, longtime San Francisco-based journalist Herb Caen published a collection of essays about the city entitled Baghdad by the Bay. (If you’re interested, it’s available for purchase here.) The moniker, which Caen came up with himself, was apparently meant to encapsulate the city’s verdant—and growing—multicultural exoticism and to conjure an association with the ancient…

Love him or hate him, Seth MacFarlane has a knack for mocking society and pop-culture.  His first feature-length film, Ted, played out like an extended episode of Family Guy, was raunchy, mildly funny, and just likable enough to be recommendable.  Following the success of this hour-and-a-half theatrical debut comes A Million Ways to Die in…

Let’s go to the Ball: Fashion at Gov Ball

With great music festivals come great fashion – there’s just something about festivals that bring about the daring in all most of us. Sure there were a lot of half-naked dudes running around in cargo shorts and bucket hats, and a lot of what can only be described as a festival uniform (crop top, short…

Mad Men’s season finale goes outta this world

Mad Men’s season finale goes outta this world

By:

Several weeks ago, I reviewed the first episode of Mad Men’s seventh season, which is airing in two seven-episode halves a year apart on AMC. “Waterloo,” which capped off this year’s run, fittingly crowns a season centered around loss—and reconciliation to loss—in all its forms: professional and personal, foregone and forestalled, dreaded and imminent. If,…

At the end of last month, the world watched as one of the most prestigious events in cinema unfolded in the south of France. The 68th Cannes Film Festival was in full swing, with all the stars, glamour, and pomp it entails. Often considered the biggest name in high-profile art film, Cannes is one of…

Whether you like it or not, summer session has begun here on the Hilltop. Now, for most of you, who are out in the world trying to squeeze as much fun out of your summer as possible (or who are stuck in a boring summer internship), this doesn’t matter at all. But for us here…

Camp David  shows care for its audience

Camp David  shows care for its audience

By:

The first sign is the smoke.  It’s not fire in the theater, but a kind of incendiary nonetheless—a rich, woody haze wafting from the omnipresent pipe of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat (Khaled Nabawy) that helps honor, for the next two hours, what it means to be an audience. The audience has never been more rewarded…

Final exams are almost upon us, and many times I wish I could escape the tense atmosphere building up in Lauinger Library and spilling across campus. I wish I had a place to go that would pull my attention away from my essays and chemistry problem sets. Luckily, the Phillips Collection’s Rothko Room provides a space…
