There is no denying that the previous all-star selection process needed some work. The solely fan-based process has been the law of the land for quite some time now, but it has produced some very questionable choices. I understand that the All-Star Game is supposed to be a game "for the fans," but Zaza freaking Pachulia almost got a...
The Vice Presidential Debate was not on everyone’s TV watch list on the night of October 4th. From the surface, the event consisted of arguments about issues from men who represent and defend their candidate’s opinions and ideas of policy who have a minor role in a presidential administration. Also, in past election cycles, the Vice Presidential Debate has...
Feed Me Calamari Tuesday Album Review Sotto Voce Released October 14, 2013 Genre: Dubstep, Electro House Feed Me has recently released his second full length LP, which is surprising considering all of the music that he has produced.  Nevertheless, the standard that Jon Gooch has set over the last few years is definitely maintained in this album; he continues a tradition of high quality productions and truly...

With controversial (to say the least) President Trump firmly in the reigns of the Republican Party, the Democratic base appears poised to strike a major blow against him.

The game, which was in development for over four years, even took home the official DICE Award for Game of the Year, making it the official game of 2013. This justifies...
Looking around Jesuit this time of year, you see endless numbers of blue blazers with the exception of the seniors, enjoying the senior privilege of wearing any jacket of their choosing. However, nothing sets these blazers apart from one another, aside from, perhaps, how many buttons they have on the front. During my freshman and sophomore years, I just...
Warning: Very minor spoilers of: Captain America: The winter Soldier, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers. It’s hardly anything but if you want to watch the movies 100% uninformed then beware. When I think about it, Marvel Studios is producing something more like a giant TV series than a bunch of movies. Starting with the first Iron Man,...
