Face Block

  Logging onto the school Wi-Fi has become routine for many THS students with electronic devices. But now, those connected to the school network are limited once again. At the beginning of this school year, THS unblocked social media networks, such as Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, and some blogs. While most of these are still open […]

Joseph DeVaughn Reviews The Heist: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Macklemore, I want my mind back! Ever since I started listening to The Heist,  by rapper Macklemore, my mind has been owned by the wonderful music on the album. “Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till’ it’s over/ So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us,”  from “Can’t hold us.” plays […]

Beauty as Criterion for Art

Beauty as Criterion for Art

A sunrise. The end of a disney movie. The mountains. A towering chrome building. A painting. The face of your lover. A poem. Often, these sorts of things would be considered “beautiful,” possessing some sort of aesthetic pleasurability that almost implies or touches upon The Divine. Beauty, colloquially, is often considered a positive quality, desirable, […]

Chris Conese Reviews: The Warrior Heir

Chris Conese Reviews: The Warrior Heir

The Warrior Heir, a novel by Cinda Williams Chima, is a fantastic read in more ways than one.  I couldn’t put it down–I literally read the book in one sitting.  The character interactions and emotions are so realistic that they draw you right into the story. There is however, one thing throughout this book filled […]

Andy Hofmann Reviews “The Lake House”

Andy Hofmann Reviews “The Lake House”

Imagine: It’s 2006. First off, I’m so sorry. Seriously, 2000-2009 was honestly just pretty horrible all the time. It’s like, it was 1999, and then Y2K happened, and instead of destroying humanity, it ended up ruining every film, book, and piece of music for the next ten years. So, you’re in the thick of that. […]

Opinion: Andy Hofmann on the Christmas Shopping Season

Opinion: Andy Hofmann on the Christmas Shopping Season

The Christmas Shopping season rolls around, and we’re inundated with ads. Holiday sales, Black Friday deals, time to buy presents, get the “best savings,” go to Walmart, buy the turkey, hang the lights: the ads. Santa and snow and smiling people and fireplaces and evergreen trees, we are swamped with a Commercial Christmas that cannibalises […]

American Reunion Review

American Reunion Review

American Reunion is the best movie I’ve seen so far this year.  No, seriously. It’s outright hilarious, as one would expect from a movie of the famed American Pie series.  But it also succeeds where the previous three (we are not counting those horrendous spin-offs) movies have failed (or succeeded to a much lesser extent) – […]

Hip-Hop Rivalries: East .vs. West

Throughout the 90’s hip-hop was engulfed in a territorial feud pitting rappers on the east coast against rappers on the west coast. I would to revisit this feud but instead of dwelling on the past I will pit each coast, based on the talent of it’s MC’s, against each other to once and for all […]

Cinnamon Challenge Dangers

Cinnamon Challenge Dangers

If you ever visit Youtube, you may know about a trending challenge- The Cinnamon Challenge. This challenge is done by swallowing a tablespoonful of cinnamon without water. It usually ends with people blowing out clouds of brown dust and gasping for breath. Possibly even throwing up. Though many people find it humorous, there are many […]

Jack Gillespie’s “21 Jump Street” Review

Movies based on television shows are not known to be particularly revered among the general populace. Just within the last few years we’ve seen the second-rate Bewitched, the boring The A-Team, and the absolute affront to humanity MacGruber. Even the successful ones bring about mixed criticism (The Simpsons Movie). Given this mediocre track record, I […]
