Opinion: Dear Quarantine

Anushka Mukherjee | Staff Writer Dear Quarantine, We hate you.  Gosh, where do we even begin to explain how much you have messed up our lives? Everything was going great. We were on our way to finishing the final stretch of our high school career. But then you came in armed with the perfect ammunition – orders and regulations.  We […]

Lily Geiser | Editor-in-Chief Well, it’s been a wild ride Mason. There were a lot of ways that our senior year could have ended. I don’t think that anyone had their money on global pandemic, but it is what it is. And I could tell you all about how much it sucks (it does) and how much I miss my […]

Album Review: 3.15.20 by Childish Gambino

Ann Vettikkal | Staff Writer 6/10 Childish Gambino’s surprise release of 3.15.20 ostensibly gives us nothing to comment on (including the white album cover and tracks named after their timestamp within the larger project) except the actual music. Listening to the album from beginning to end is an experience in and of itself, and a confusing one, especially compared to […]

Riley Johansen | Design Editor With most everyone cooped up in their homes waiting out the quarantine, there’s never been a better opportunity to escape from reality to your own private island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Album Review: Sleepyhead by Cavetowns

Henri Robbins | Online Editor Rating: 7/10 With the success of Cavetown’s sophomore Lemon Boy, many expected him to be something of a one-hit wonder, but as Robin Skinner releases his third full album, he both retains his initial stylings and builds upon them, creating an album that exudes a sound of pure peace and calm, yet still holds a […]

Album Review: After Hours by the Weeknd

Archie Barton | Staff Writer Rating: 8/10 After Hours brings the fourth studio album for The Weeknd, following the 2018 EP My Dear Melancholy. The first album released since 2016’s Starboy, After Hours attempts to find the balance between The Weeknd’s tragic love anecdotes and the longing to dance to the upbeat 80s sound spliced throughout the album.  The pre-released […]

Album Review: Kid Krow by Conan Gray

Andrea Hefferan | Managing Editor Rating: 6/10 After multiple hit singles, artist Conan Gray is debuting his first full length album, Kid Krow. His pre-released singles, Comfort Crowd, Maniac, Checkmate, and The Story were everything I love about Gray’s music: honest, relatable, and catchy. With conversational lyrics and a relatively minimalist sound, listening feels similar to a conversation with a […]

Opinion: Tik Tok takes on coronavirus

Anushka Mukherjee | Staff Writer Of all the videos I have seen on Tik Tok regarding the vicious coronavirus epidemic, I noticed one common theme: young individuals are embracing death with each new outbreak of life-threatening events.  Whether it be the potential for WWIII or climate change or even a killer disease, a majority of teenagers seem more than happy […]

Opinion: A Troubling Situation

Henri Robbins | Online Editor How often are birds a problem in your life? Is it fairly often? I wouldn’t think they are, so let me tell you: When they’re a problem, they are a problem.  To start this story as simply as possible, our dryer was acting weird. My mom didn’t want to do laundry, because every morning the […]

Movie Review: The Invisible Man

Scott Reckers | Staff Member Rating: 7/10 Horror movies can become monotonous. Characters often seem to be clueless, running right into the killers plot. Walking into the theatre, I didn’t expect much more than a run-of-the-mill movie. Thankfully I was mistaken. The Invisible Man is not a new idea or character (since it was first thought up a long time […]

Album Review: Miss Anthropocence

Henri Robbins | Online Editor Rating: 7/10 With a large part of the album released as a series of singles over the last year, one might think that they knew what to expect from Grimes’ most recent project, but even from an artist known for her experimental stylings, the diversity in sound in Miss Anthropocene is astounding. Creating an eclectic […]
