The Rise of Skywalker was everything I hoped for, everything I  dreamed of and my heart is filled to the brim with emotions. As the credits rolled I couldn't distinguish if my tears were of utter sadness for this trilogies end or joy because of how right the end felt. It was the ageless clash of good and evil. T...

CGI has always unsettled me, I find it terrifying. Frankly, it's the reason I’ve never watched “Avatar”. So I can't tell you why I let my family convince me to go see the new creation of “Cats”, but let me tell you I'm glad I did. Now, don't get me wrong the CGI did terrify me for about three m...

The one and only former One Direction star Harry Styles released a new album on Dec. 13 called “Fine Line.” Not only is Styles divine looking, but his vocal abilities are also through the roof!  His previous album, “Harry Styles,” was a shock to all considering his past songs. Styles was n...

This weekend on one of my frequent commutes around town, I decided to make a quick side stop to Burger King to get a taste of the new Impossible Whopper.  The typical Whopper consists of the meat patty, as well as the other basic ingredients such as tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, basically any...

True love shines through in Jenn Bennett’s “Starry Eyes”

True love shines through in Jenn Bennett's

After reading Starry Eyes you’ll never see romance the same way ever again.  I mean bathing in rivers by campfires and hiking up mountains and through caves is more Bear Grylls, an expert survivalist, and less the classic romance  Romeo and Juliet. However, similar to the tragic couple, Zorie and Len...

West plunges into spiritual failure

Kanye West's new album, Jesus is King, is a disappointing release. Not only did it lack culture but it was a completely new genre of music and appeal for his household name.  Kaynes fame started from being such an “out there” artist, not restraining how he felt, and speaking his mind like he did...

Two years ago was the first time I listened to Rex Orange County when my younger brother played one of his first singles, “Best Friend” in the car and I’ve been in love ever since. Alex O’Conner, artist behind the one-man music production, does an amazing job with taking music trends and tur...

After a dozen photos and a car ride home, the inevitable had come. I had to take a sip of that bright fluorescent pink drink.  The mango dragon fruit Starbucks refresher.  I’ll have to admit the scent was tempting; a powerful fruity odor was emitting from that green straw. Purple chunks of ...

Lexi: Just over the bridge in Spring Lake, Small Town Sandwich Shop is a family-owned business that has been up and running since 2015. They are open every day from 11 a.m. to two p.m. It was satisfying to be able to walk into a place for once that was welcoming, along with containing a variety of differ...

As the seasons change, so does Starbucks’ seasonal drinks. Every year the winter season drinks are the star of winter. Forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte, peppermint and white chocolate are taking over. The newest drink spoke to me instantly, a Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. At first I thought it s...

February 16, 2018

Imagine a superhero. Not any specific character, just the image that comes to your mind when you think about costumed do-gooders. You see, in your mind’s eye, a white guy who’s wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants. Now, you’re not “racist” for thinking of the archetypal superhero as ...

“More Life” showcases Drake’s unique talents

Spencer Sortman, Reporter

April 10, 2017

More Life, a title that completely embodies Drake’s new album. More Life, an extremely varied showcase for the adept artist and his signature voice. At first listen, the album sounds a lot like Drake’s last album, Views, released in 2016.  However, its unique sounds combined with Drake’s usual skil...
