The Truth About F.A.M.E.

Time and time again, artists tell us that fame is not what it seems to be. In his newest album, Maluma shares the same message with a fresh twist. F.A.M.E. stands for fé (faith), alma (soul), música (music), and esencia (essence). The album reveals the “person who is behind the artist,” and features reggaeton smash...

Alias Grace: Excavating Female Sexuality

Margaret Atwood’s particular brand of dystopian feminism is back in style. With all the hype surrounding the television adaptation of her most famous novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, another Atwood adaptation has flown pretty much under the radar. I first read Alias Grace the summer before my senior year of high school, and I was intrigued...

Are remakes really that bad?

By:

Every couple of years, there seems to be a rush of articles written about Hollywood’s remake culture, most recently brought on by the upcoming (and totally baffling) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, courtesy of Michael Bay. There’s always a great deal of lamenting the loss of originality in movies, pining for the good ol’ days…

Despite fan enthusiasm for the Okahoma City Thunder, the Indiana Pacers, and any residual belief in the Miami Heat, the best team in the NBA is, once again, the San Antonio Spurs. For whatever reason, basketball’s intelligentsia decided to underrate San Antonio following their heartbreaking loss in the 2013 NBA Finals. The rationale was that…

For the first time in almost two decades, when Augusta National opens its gates to the top golfers in the world, the best golfer in the world will be absent. Imagining the Masters without Tiger Woods is like imagining a round of golf without a nice cold Arnold Palmer, or with clubs that are wooden….

The USA met Mexico in Glendale, Arizona on Wednesday night, for a World Cup tune-up which, despite its billing, was anything but friendly.

For Tokyo Police Club, the release of their third studio album, Forcefield, seems to mark their arrival as a truly established indie rock band. Though, by “truly established,” I mean, mainly, that people have finally stopped mistaking their band for a bunch of Japanese cops. Nevertheless, it’s the kind of place you reach artistically where…

Did the Yankees just lose? We don’t have the highest payroll? As the era of the Core-Four comes to a close, the Yankees appear to be sinking into mediocrity. This is a shocking sight for those of us born in the ‘90s who enjoyed five World Series championships and a run of constant relevancy. Had…
