COLUMN: Dubstep is more of an English thing

Thom Carter | Staff Writer When musical genres amount to nothing but a trend, they lose all credibility. We are incredibly susceptible to such a phenomenon in Mason. Here, emerging artists from primarily urban dwellings have their sound diluted when they’re music is deemed “too weird.” Dubstep, a subgenre of electronic and drum n’ bass music, is currently that flavor […]

Letters to the Editor: 10/28

Dear Editor, There once was a joke I heard, and it went something like this, “I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want—an adorable pancreas?” This made me chuckle, but [it] also made me realize how shallow we all are as Americans. In the last Chronicle, “Beauty in The Eyes […]

Financial worry is a staple in the life of an upcoming college student; scholarships are rare and you can pretty much forget about a full ride these days, but to make all matters worse, the test that determines if students can get money from a college, leaves them broke before they ever make it there. The ACT not only costs […]

COLUMN: Cheaters

Janica Kaneshiro | Editor-in-Chief “How could you?” she dramatically screams into the phone. Her hair is a mess and her face is melting into the all-powerful ugly-cry.

Funny, how things change. As I casually strolled through the Internet after school one day, reading any interesting article that came my way, (yes, I am […]

COLUMN: Vampirical woes

Thom Carter | Staff Writer Businesses revolve around the mantra, “the customer is always right,” and the entertainment business is no exception. When people flock to a movie, studios are quick to remake the same one only with a cast that amps up sex appeal accompanied by a script that is considerably dumbed-down. They take advantage of some of mankind’s […]

Letters to the Editor: 9/30

Dear Editor, Homecoming is a gathering of students at Mason High School. Over the past couple of years the administration has noticed there is a lot of physical activity happening at the school dances. I think this is something we could change if we really wanted to. The school, I feel like, doesn’t put enough into telling the students grinding […]

COLUMN: Punk culture has died

Ian Howard | Staff Writer With so many cultural role models to choose from, our internalized rules are subject to change. The great counterculture icons of the 1960s replace today’s traditional authorities by idealizing unrestricted sex, recreational drug use and a carefree attitude. Artists like Wiz Khalifa, MGMT and Kid Cudi gain popularity in a new suburban stoner demographic. Although […]
