Kevin Hyde Hailing from the distant land of England, this quartet has boosted its way to the top of my playlist, a coveted position that people like Taylor Swift and Ke$ha will never see. The band seems to epitomize the type of uber-cool, coffee house, grungy, hipster that creates these tantalizing tunes on...

Mayday Parade: Successful onstage and off

November 1, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Opinions

I can't even begin to describe my love for Mayday Parade. I discovered this alternative band three years ago and was hooked from the start. Their debut album 'A Lesson In Romantics' contains lyrics about love with fun and energetic guitar rhythms, putting a unique spin on these otherwise solemn songs. 'Anywhere...

'America's Got Talent' results disappoint sophomore

Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

When Jackie Evancho sings, many ears ring with sweet sounds and magical melodies. Jackie was a contestant on NBC's America’s Got Talent. Although she is only ten, she has the voice of an experienced thirty year old opera  singer. The first time I heard her, I thought I was watching an opera show. ...

'Gossip Girl' goes from plaid to leather

By: Ashley Hawkins and Kevin Hyde Ashley- When I first heard of The Pretty Reckless, I was pretty skeptical to listen to them. I had zero faith that a "Gossip Girl" could possibly be prosperous in the music industry. Plus, Paramore is my favorite female-fronted band; I'm pretty hostile towards other...

For all the scary movie lovers Paranormal Activity 2 is being released on Oct. 22. Call me a coward but I could not sleep for a week after the first one. Some people may say "that movie was not even scary," but I guarantee that I will be at a minimum of 100 feet away from that theater. I don't understand...

"Pink Floyd" wows fans with spectacular show

Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Status of my mind: Completely and utterly inverted. Cause of this abnormality: Roger Waters performing a Pink Floyd concert. While sitting on the train on the way downtown for the Roger Waters concert, I remembered hearing that can he put on an incredible show, but I was not prepared for the coming...

CBS show is still going strong

October 5, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Five seasons and still going is the  perfect way to describe  the CBS show "How I Met Your Mother." The weaving of old characters and new ones can't be matched by any new program. Now in its sixth season, it is still a pleasure to behold. The stars of "How I Met Your Mother," Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Alyso...

'Glee:' season two starts strong

September 22, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

After a stellar first season, 'Glee' had a high reputation to uphold in it's premiere on Tuesday night.  I was someone who, at first, was opposed to the 'Glee' phenomena that began circling schools everywhere last September.  However, I finally joined in during the second half of season one and now consider myself a full-fledged gleek. R...

'Easy A:' A unique and refreshing change

September 22, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

It was Friday night and I walked into Arlington Theaters expecting the typical Friday night buzz.  I was attending the 7:15 showing of 'Easy A' and figured the theater would be about half-full; it was an earlier showing after all.  To my surprise there was a line waiting to get into theater five, and...

Ke$ha: It’s a love or hate relationship

September 16, 2010
Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Opinions

Ke$ha: Ashley- I used to be deeply annoyed with Ke$ha. Her electronic sound and raunchy lyrics made my head hurt. The radio was constantly playing "Tik Tok," and it made me sick. But one day my brother had "Blah Blah Blah" playing, and my feelings toward her changed. Within the first few seconds of the song,...
