Going to Six Flags Great America is one of my favorite activities during the summer. This amusement park offers tons of exhilarating roller coasters and activities for all ages.

"Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild" for the Nintendo Switch has actually taken over my life. In order to sit down and write this review, my brother had to actually pry the Nintendo Switch out of my hands and force me to sit down at the computer. In other words, I've started to fully believe that I'm a...

He's on the cover of Rolling Stone with a story written by no less than music-journalist-turned-semi-autobiographical-director Cameron Crowe. He's even got (*gasp*)...

After five years of the Nintendo Wii U being the primary console for Nintendo, its reign is over. Released on March 3, 2017, Nintendo's new console, the "Switch," is perhaps one of the most radical console updates in Nintendo's most recent history. The Switch aims to bridge the divide between the traditional...

A Sundance-winning crime-based thriller was oddly entertaining, but I'm still not sure why. "I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore," starring Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood, is a politically fueled movie based solely on a woman who was robbed and who decided that she had had enough of the world t...

Snapchat has been a top social media app in recent years. Sending a quick picture to a friend of something, usually just of one's...

LÉON is a queen. I almost skipped out on the chance to uncover her amazing artistry. I first came across LÉON on Soundcloud, because of a remix that had been done to her song "Tired of Talking" with Skizzy Mars. I loved the song almost more than I liked Skizzy Mars, strictly because of the break-through...
