All Hail Dolly
Sandra Redak, Editorial Editor • April 9, 2024

I know it’s not good to idolize celebrities, but I’m not exaggerating when I say I would give my corneas to Dolly Parton if she asked. If you're uninformed of the Dolly-ification of society let me...

I recently watched Carol and the End of the World and thought it was super cute! The show follows an introverted 42-year-old woman facing the “carpe diem” mentality as a foreign planet is projected to collide with Earth. Instead of partying and traveling like the rest of the world, Carol finds an office job and gets drinks at a closed-down Applebees with her coworkers. The show was endearing, quirky,...

In Defense of Xanadu
Delphi Davalos, Staff Writer • April 9, 2024

In 1980, disco had been pronounced dead. However, unfortunately missing the memo, the disco-fantasy movie Xanadu starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly premiered that same year. The film, despite starring two movie-musical legends Olivia Newton-John (Grease) and Gene Kelly (Singin’ in the Rain), was a box office flop and critically derided.  Xanadu was received so poorly that it, along with...

One of the most iconic movies to watch at a sleepover, many of us love–or love to hate–the 2004 Mean Girls movie. Now, twenty years later, Regina George and her posse of Plastics return to our screens again, this time in a musical remake that is bringing a rush of viewers into movie theatres across the country.  Advertised as “Not Your Mother’s Mean Girls,” Tina Fey has taken this chance...

Palworld Vs. Pokemon
Wallace Gilreath, Staff Writer • April 9, 2024

What do you think the second most popular game of all time on Steam is? Most people would probably guess something extremely well known, a COD game or something from a AAA studio that has hundreds of people working on it and hundreds of millions of dollars poured in. Recently the second-place game for most concurrent players, capping out at two million one hundred thousand concurrent players was Palworld,...

Many movies did not end up making the final bracket, such as other gems from director Neil Breen, and sleeper hit Hobgoblins.
Worst Movie Ever
Delphi Davalos and Becca Kless February 26, 2024

We love bad movies and we’re sure a lot of other people can relate. Hate watching is a fun fad and so we’ve decided to do some studying to determine which movie, according to users on Letterboxd (a movie reviewing app) and our own humble opinions, is considered the worst of all time. We created a bracket (pictured above) of 16 movies that, in general, have reviews of one star or lower on Letterboxd....

They Saved Me From Drowning: Lifeguard
Becca Kless, Staff Writer • January 30, 2024

You’re in highschool, I’m in highschool, and so are the members of an up and coming band called Lifeguard. Though they are new on the scene, (having only released their first EP on spotify in 2020), they have been signed to Matador Records, a prominent label known for also representing artists like Pavement, Lucy Dacus, Snail Mail and my favorite band Car Seat Headrest. Members of Lifeguard,...
