Feb, 16, 2016 By Mary Davisson The biggest fixation of our generation is clearly the mystique of the superhero. Since the first “X-Men” movie in 2000, we have seen a non-stop escalation of abnormally talented and/or tortured individuals in tights who have dedicated themselves to saving mankind,...

February 8, 2016

Feb. 8, 2016 By Logan Peaslee Before reviewing Rihanna’s latest album, we have to address its seemingly endless rollout. I can’t recall an album campaign as confusing or drawn-out as this one. Aside from just being annoying, the lead up also created an audience with high expectations. And,...

March 4, 2015

  Spoiler alert: story contains plot details from seasons one and two plus insight into the new season of “House of Cards.”  Now that I have that disclaimer out of the way, let me give you another: I have not finished the third season. Sadly, adult responsibilities took up my weekend, allowi...
