Unshelved: Absurdity in a Nutshell

In a nutshell, Nutshell by Ian McEwan is one of the most bizarre books I have ever read. Honestly, I don’t know why I even finished it. I think I was driven by a perverse curiosity to learn what twist awaited at the end of the book. At times, I couldn’t tell whether it was...

, and Trailer Takes: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELeMaP8EPAA Katie: I have only two syllables to describe what I just witnessed: oy vey. I know that this film is getting good reviews post-Cannes, but I am not buying whatever Quentin Tarantino is selling in this one. Frankly, the Brad Pitt-Leonardo DiCaprio bromance, which had so much potential,...

As the NFL season creeps towards the forefront of American sports yet again, the only certainty is that nothing is certain. Each Sunday brings a team or player out of obscurity, creating regional heroes and national sensations only to send them back into the shadows the next week. Do you remember the Colts’ incredible playoff…

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/mkb108/weekly-list” ] Hey guys and welcome to my first attempt at the Weekly List! My inspiration for this week’s playlist comes from the film Boyhood and that introspective happy-sad mood it evokes. Released on July 11, Richard Linklater’s hit independent film is a thought-provoking journey that took 12 years to make. It follows the…

After an exhausting drive from Boston, Massachusetts to Georgetown and an afternoon of moving heavy boxes into my room, my mom and I felt ready for a relaxing evening. So, instead of booking a hotel downtown or in Rosslyn as close to campus as possible, we decided to stay in Alexandria, Virginia. Exploring a different…

If the U.S. soccer team were a living room, goalkeeper Tim Howard, on the squad since 2007, would be a couch— but not like the beer-soaked couch that’s travelled with you since back in the day. He’s more like a fine leather sectional , both sturdy and stylish, something that’s on every homeowner’s wish list….

There’s something about Seattle, Washington and the surrounding area that breeds angsty musical prowress like nowhere else. The city has given birth to artists such as Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Eddie Vedder, Band of Horses, the Head and the Heart, and many others.

Beyonce is revered as an idol. But, when paired with Jay Z, she transforms into a goddess. Together, the Carters become a dynamic duo, selling out concerts and creating an obsessive (bordering on scary) fan following. Their work not only as a couple but also as musicians demonstrates the power and benefits of artistic collaboration….

It felt like Christmas morning. It was finally here, the single most important day of the year, the day I for which I had waited the entirety of an agonizing, regretful year. It was a day when dreams would be born and crushed, friendships broken, and dynasties created. It was a day for champions, for…

While the NL only has one divisional race closer than five games, the wild card spots are so up for grabs that the Marlins, I repeat, the Marlins, are in the hunt with a record of 65-67.  Although we all know it ain’t over til it’s over, let’s take a look at the current state…
