‘WandaVision’ retrospective: brilliant confusion

I’ve watched all the Marvel movies since I was in the fifth grade, which is weird to think about considering I’m turning 20 soon. But these movies have been a really big part of my life, and ever since Thor’s character arch went down the drain I’ve been a huge supporter of Wanda and Vision.  […]

Zooming through the first year

I was really excited about college when it first started, but after over a month of virtual school, I feel more like a senior than a freshman. My back is sore, my eyes are tired and I feel like a sloth, needing to sleep most of the day when my brain is hyper-awake at night […]

‘Kill 6 Billion Demons’ is worldbuilding insanity

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. An unassuming commoner is revealed to be the chosen one, teams up with a ragtag group of misfits and embarks on an epic journey, saving the kidnapped princess and liberating the kingdom from darkness and injustice to usher in an era of peace. Old hat right? Now, […]

Three Days

As I was scrolling through Instagram this week, I came across a pretty interesting post. The photo was a headline saying “New Zealand to offer paid leave to parents after miscarriages.” Which I think is amazing, and I was thrilled to see it, so naturally I went to the caption to read more about it […]

No prisoner is bad

In doing research for classes, and because of a slightly obsessive watching of a few prison TV shows, I have become more and more solidified in my stance for prison abolition. To start off, the quickest argument people tend to have when fighting for the existence of prisons (and police) is that bad people exist. […]

Women’s tennis makes spring debut against Tufts

The Brandeis University women’s tennis team dropped a decisive 9-0 decision to the Tufts University Jumbos, in their first match of the season on April 3 at the Cordish Tennis Center. This was the Judges first match of the season, as well as their first match of the academic year, after being on the sidelines […]

‘Stay out of the Attic’ is a fun, but fatuous B-horror

The entertainment value in a movie does not always have to correspond with the quality of that movie. In celebration of Passover, I sat down and watched a wonderfully gory horror movie that exemplified this idea. “Stay out of the Attic” is a fast-paced, stereotypical, 80-minute body horror movie that both entertained me and forced […]

‘OK Orchestra” is way better than OK

In their fourth album “OK Orchestra,” AJR returns with nothing short of triumph and their traditional “I feel like sh*t, but I’m trying my best” vibes. The album opens up with the signature AJR “Overture”—like in their earlier albums “The Click” and “Living Room,” “OK Orchestra’s” opening track blasts its listeners off with an actually […]

I did not lose my cool over ‘Zero Chill’

“Zero Chill” on Netflix is cheesy, poorly made and wildly over dramatic—so obviously I watched it all in one day. The show follows a pair of twins, a figure skater and a hockey player, who move from Canada to England. However, in true Netflix fashion, the show creates intricate plot lines for basically every character […]
