Apple’s Facelift

Hayley Martens, Campus Life Editor

When you download iOS10 and your phone restarts, you are presented with the all-too-familiar lock screen. But this time around, it’s a little different. It brings some new tricks. Swiping from the left takes you to the Today screen, which is far more customizable than before. It's a quick way to acc...

A Fine Line

A Fine Line

Skip Stevens, The Reporter

September 23, 2016

Over a month has passed since its release, and time has told that the supposed “blockbuster of the summer”, otherwise known as Suicide Squad, has successfully found the line between pure likability and utter entertainment catastrophe. With plot holes, lack of character development, and a stressed ...

Dane Dorius, Designated Horse Whisperer

September 23, 2016

Furi is a stylish action game where you fight ten or so very difficult bosses. You’re an unnamed inmate in a prison made of eleven floating areas in space. You get broken out by a mysterious man with a giant rabbit’s head over his face, and you have to kill every jailor (each in charge of one area) to...

Ratchet and Clank movie

Skip Stevens, The Reporter

May 11, 2016

Everybody bolt up; or maybe just sit back and watch, because the new Ratchet and Clank movie, whilst charming and fun, is looks and not much more. The “movie based on the game” reinvents the popular game from 2002 in a stylish way but ultimately fails to recapture the humor, weaponry, and adventure tha...

One of the most highly anticipated shows a 2016 for warehouse a revival of the 80s sitcom. It began with a very misleading intro making it seem as though all of the characters still lived in that one house although you soon find out that they do not. As multiple characters are arriving into scene the en...

Untitled

May 9, 2016

As I plug the aux cord into the speaker, I listen to the demands of family member from behind me: “play number 2!” “No, play number 7!” “Scratch that, play number 1!”. And just like that, with no titles besides Untitled and the track number, Kendrick Lamar’s newest album, Untitled Unmastered, a...

If you are the type of person that loves both history and musicals, but can’t possibly think they could be combined, then you are sadly mistaken. Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda, does just that. Lin-Manuel Miranda came up with the extraordinary idea of turning one of our beloved founding fathers...

May 9, 2016

When I walked into TJ Cups on a Tuesday afternoon, among other brightly-colored baubles and asian goods, I saw an assortment of little bonsai trees resting on shelves. A menu on the wall featured an array of iced tea, milk tea, smoothie and “boba pearl” drinks. At TJ Cups, a San Francisco based ...

Four Reasons Why The War Of Sokovian Aggression Is Everything Batdude v Superguy Tried To Be

Dane Dorius, Reporter

May 9, 2016

Captain America: Civil War is the newest hotness by Marvel. It’s a really good Marvel movie, and it’s probably one of the better superhero movies in the genre. However, we still have the aftertaste of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in our collective consciousness, another impossibly large-b...
