The...

What Happened to the Devils this Season?

The hype was certainly there. In a preseason article, ten out of twenty analysts had the Devils making the playoffs, with most predictions placing them in a top three spot in the Metropolitan Division. Today, the Devils sit eighteen points away from a playoff spot with almost no chance of making it. So, what went...

Celebrity Death Lists: A Form of Afterlife No One Asked For

A Facebook notification pops up on my phone: “Today is January 1st and it is time to crown the winners of the first annual Celebrity Death List Pool!” It is shortly followed by a reminder—I only have two weeks left to submit my list for 2020.  Celebrity death lists are a self-acknowledged macabre phenomenon that...

Critical Voices: Ryan Adams, Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams’ career has followed many musical twists and turns, perhaps best evidenced by the 13 albums and countless musical collaborations he has released since 2000. After a 3-year hiatus, Ryan Adams is back with his 14th, self-titled studio album– a melancholy, moody, and predictable roller coaster of rock and blues. It’s obvious that Adams…

Exhausted. Satisfied.  Utterly terrified at the prospect of attending class the next day. There were a hundred ways to describe how I felt after having watched four hours of NFL Red Zone with my friends. But I felt no regret, because the NFL was back, with all its glory and controversy. Week 1 brought excitement,…

Ed Sheeran’s performance this past Saturday at the Merriweather Post Pavilion stop on his Multiply tour was, in a word, faultless. From the crowd-pleasing sing-alongs, to the talented freestyle, to the acoustic melodies performed in typical Sheeran-esque fashion—the one-man band managed so much versatility in one show that even the reluctant fathers resembled their fanatic,…

We’re another week closer to the playoffs and everybody else is watching football. But I still love America’s pastime, so here’s another week of baseball analysis: Detroit Detroit deserves to make the playoffs. Offensively, they have the best batting average in baseball (.277), the best On Base Percentage (.332), the second most runs (681) and…

This column originally appeared in The Georgetown Voice. It can be found on the main site, here.  When we look at our lives in hindsight, we tend to see the events as having fallen into place, like puzzle pieces naturally forming their way into the bigger picture—except that’s not how puzzles work. Puzzles take time, effort,…

HOT: 1) Cordarrelle Patterson Unless you’re a Minnesota Vikings fan or a hardcore fantasy football buff, you might not recognize the name of the youthful wide receiver for the Vikings, but rest assured, you will by the end of this year. Cordarrelle introduced himself to the league with a stellar 67-yard touchdown run and over…

Windows can be an opening to the outdoors. They can provide glimpses into enclosed, secret rooms or become gateways to unreachable places. But the square or rectangular shape of windows can also be limiting, restricting our view to a simple geometric scene and shaping our eyes to see a specific perspective. With the constant chaos…

Have you ever heard of Swansea? I promise, I didn’t pose that question just so I could patronize you. A few weeks ago, I didn’t know much of anything about the city of Swansea. In all honesty, if someone would’ve asked me to point at Swansea on a map of Britain, I surely would have…

DC becomes a ghost town on the weekends, where one can walk for blocks and blocks in its concrete jungle and only pass a few families of confused tourists looking for the Mall and pregnant yuppie couples on their way to brunch. But amongst the lonely buildings waiting for their high-powered employees to flood in…
