As an avid music listener and connoisseur, not many bands can really stick with me. Of course there's always that song or album that I love and obsess over for maybe a month, two tops, but it never goes beyond that. I call the end of this two-or-so month period the “musical horizon.” If a song, album or...

On Friday, Oct. 7, I went to see “The Girl on the Train”. If I were to describe this movie in two words, I would say head turning. It captures your attention. The acting isn’t fantastic, but it most definitely is not horrible. Emily Blunt, who plays Rachel, is an alcoholic and a needy ex wif...

When I was twelve years old, I contracted mono and spent days in bed. In that time, my dog died and I got dumped for a guy named Chad. It was not an easy time, but I would gladly go back and relive those days than sit through Gods of Egypt again. Few words can be conjured up to accurately depict the ...
