Just imagine, you are laying on the beach in Southern California chillin with your friends.

Glass – A shattered opportunity?

Seth Bequette, Academics & Arts Editor

March 14, 2019

I’m a bit late for the tea party that is M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Eastrail 177 Trilogy’, though to be fair the first film of this triple play was two years before my time. Despite that and some strange things Shyamalan’s movies have been known for, my interest was piqued by the purple hued thri...

When I mention the name “Noname Gypsy”, nothing may come into your mind. Well, it’s about time to change that. Noname, AKA Fatimah Nyeema Warner, has proven herself a force to be reckoned with in a musical genre dominated almost entirely by mumble-rapping teenagers, not to mention one with an unde...

February 13, 2019

I decided to do a book review over The Hunger Games  by Suzanne Collins. It came out back in 2008, yet I only read it this past school year. It was a lovely discovery. I have not been able to find any recent books that I am interested in enough to read. But reading The Hunger Games caught my full at...

Get caught up in the Spider Verse

Corinne Sailor, Reporter

February 13, 2019

Into the Spider-Verse is impressive and entertaining, a dynamic and visually appealing movie that looks perfect as a three-dimensional version of the offset-printed comics. The story is clever and somewhat complicated. It moves quickly through fun bits that show just how much Miles loves being the su...

Red Dead Redemption: your new life as a shut-in

Jonathan Watt, Reporter

December 14, 2018

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! I have a confession to make: I’ve been living two lives. For the past month, my entire world has been more or less consumed by a Wild West fantasy. My social life? What social life? My rapidly dropping GPA? I’ll deal with it later! My self-worth? Who needs a sens...

It has been a tiresome day and the only thing that you need is a refreshment. You reach out to grab the chilled drink and take a sip of the icy and flavorful milk and the flavor of tea just flows all in your mouth.

There are roughly 36 parks here in lil’ ole’ Ames, Iowa. But which park reigns supreme? Which park sustains a healthy atmosphere, the best view, the best trail, or the best place to go hammocking?

Senator Ben Sasse addresses the Iowa State Memorial Union, his words seeming to echo through the crowded great hall. “The President is far more right than most of the foreign policy establishment gives him credit for in the fact that we do need to reevaluate some fundamental assumptions about th...

Quick Tunes: Iridescence by Brockhampton

Jonathan Watt, Reporter

October 22, 2018

Coming on the heels of a highly-publicized controversy regarding former member Ameer’s sexual misconduct allegations over the Summer, Brockhampton was in a dark place. They had lost one of their core founding members- one that hadn’t only yielded his own superb style of rapping (which would frequen...
