This Week’s Short Story: Meant for the Light

She is meant for fame. For the spotlight, the limelight, the flash of the cameras. Her mother calls her a ray of sunshine: all she has to do is smile and the world will fall at her feet. Like attracts like, and light attracts light.

Virtual Slam Poetry Festival spotlights student creativity

The College’s celebration of Black History Month continued last Thursday night with The Division of Inclusive Excellence’s Slam Poetry Festival. The virtual event featured a unique form of expression that united writing and performance, and liberated student artists to accentuate words through song, gestures and dance. 

‘Music is a group activity’: an interview with College student musician Dylan Lembo

Dylan Lembo is a jack of all trades when it comes to musical instruments.

‘Behind Her Eyes’ is sure to surprise

The best way I can describe Netflix’s new limited series, “Behind Her Eyes,” which is based on the novel by Sarah Pinborough with the same title, is that you step into a maze. It’s a psychological thriller that follows a single mom who longs for more excitement in her life.

What We’re Watching on Netflix: ‘I Care a Lot’

A con artist and legal guardian, Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) claims to be thoughtful and caring as she takes on hundreds of elderly wards. In reality, she is selling their belongings for a profit while they sit in care facilities. Ruthless and cunning, Grayson is sure she has found the perfect target, but the mark ends up being more trouble than she appears. 

Not mad, just disappointed: Wallows releases deluxe version of ‘Remote’ EP

Lacking any sort of cohesion and suffering from bouts of uninspiredness or overly-produced sounds, Remote is a clear indication that Wallows is still wading their feet in waters of their potential. 

This Week’s Short Story: Karaoke Night At The Applecore Club For Bugs

The opening. Yes, I suppose a story has to open somehow and somewhere, but not yet. We’re not starting yet. Why, everyone isn’t ready yet! Soon though, very soon. We just have some points of business to carry out because the last thing I’d want to do is deceive you. That’s why we’re not starting yet until everyone is ready, including you.

Pentatonix’s ‘The Lucky Ones’ blends the worlds of pop and mental health

Five years after the release of their first original album, Pentatonix, the five-member sensational pop acapella group — known for their creative covers of popular songs and their five holiday albums — released their newest album, “The Lucky Ones” on Feb. 12. This 11-track album was two years in the making, said Scott Hoying, the baritone, in a celebratory Instagram post.

‘Judas and the Black Messiah’: a startling look at the life and death of a Black Panther

There are many words one could use to describe director Shaka King’s new film “Judas and the Black Messiah” — amazing, remarkable, spectacular. Basically, you could look in a thesaurus and look under the word “excellent,” to be able to justifiably apply any of its synonyms to “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie is that good.

‘Red Dot’ fails to address dead-ends

I say we draft up a constitution and send it to every director in the world to tell them that we have had enough with bleak snowy horror movies. I am tired of seeing completely unlikeable characters prance around in strawberry snow for an hour and a half. 

‘To All The Boys: Always and Forever’ is a love letter to the trilogy

In the third and final installment of the “To All The Boys” series, Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) prepare for the college experience and what the future holds. As senior year progresses and the two reflect on their passions, careers and relationship, Lara Jean must decide whether or not her college plans include her beau at all. 

Which Streaming Platform loves its users more: Apple Music or Spotify?

In this day and age, it seems the world is binomial. White or black? This or that? Apple Music or Spotify? Just like everything else, these are subjective opinions. However, the reciprocity of customer care is not so subjective.
