“Old Town Road” Signals a Shift in the Music Industry

The music industry has a new reason to worry, and it’s all because of a certain country-rap meme song. Lil Nas X, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter who was virtually unknown a year ago, a $30 beat purchased online from a Dutch producer, and a racially tinged Billboard chart controversy combined to make “Old Town Road” the...

The Meme Files: “Me Explaining” and Abstract Familiarity

By:

Many of the internet memes of recent memory both gain traction and really take off because they are derived from familiar pop culture visuals.  “Powerful Shaggy” is based upon a beloved character of a popular and enduring children’s cartoon. “Big Chungus” is just an image of Bugs Bunny taken out of its original context, as…

Tyler Skaggs, starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, died on Monday, July 1. He was 27. This news hit me like a blow. Not again, I thought.

This has been especially on my mind recently because of Ryan O’Reilly’s utter brilliance in the Stanley Cup Final. Continuing to kick in the teeth of Sabres GM Jason Botterill and fans like myself after Buffalo sold low…

I don’t know about you, but at this point in the summer, I miss Georgetown a lot, it’s been getting to my feelings. I miss my friends, my Henle room, the smell of the trees in the Spring, and just sometimes, the classes. As a student with terrible coping mechanisms, I listen to sad songs…

Unshelved: Absurdity in a Nutshell

By:

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…
