By Katherine Wright Rediscovering an old “that was easy” button — a novelty of the middle-school era — has led me to do some soul-searching on what was “easy” and what no longer is.  It used to be easy to sneak candy into the movie theater, to snag the last open seat on the bus, […]

By Sophia Yakumithis It’s time to leave this semester behind. Like, seriously, throw-it-away-and-don’t-look-back behind. Bluntly speaking, I’ve never had a worse semester. The year itself was completely doomed — and this Fall offered no exceptions. I’ve taken some time to reflect, and I realized some things that happened just a few months ago feel like […]

By Peter Colaner I know what you’re thinking: Why is Pete writing a music review? Doesn’t he just talk about film and television? Yep, that’s true. I blog exclusively about film and television, but this week, I’m making an exception.  Since I’ve been exposed to such a talented and intriguing band, “The Ghost Club,” I […]

By Katherine Wright  I’ve got to hand it to Dolores Umbridge. Most professors at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry — especially temporary professors — barely put an ounce of energy into decorating their offices. Remus Lupin had a tank filled with random magical creatures, Gilderoy Lockhart had a bunch of framed photographs of his own face […]
