Riot fest has been around since 2005, and has only grown since its first year. Last year it moved from hosting bands in actual venues around downtown and east side of Chicago the west side of Chicago in Douglas Park, a sketchy area that is generally not the best the safest place to hold events. Its a...

‘Son of Zorn’ the middle child of Fox lineup

Filed under Carousel, Reviews

Between "Family Guy," "The Simpsons," "American Dad!" and FX's "Archer," Fox seems to have pretty much monopolized the market on obscene adult cartoons whose overwhelming ridiculousness occasionally make for some genuine brilliance. "Son of Zorn" is pretty clearly one such attempt to further cement the...

It seems as though there's always some sort of celebrity battle playing out on social media. This past month, the most talked about feud was between Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian. For those who might be oblivious to celebrity drama, here's what happened. Kanye West wrote a song c...

Recently, the popular alternative band, The Chainsmokers released a collaboration with the up-and-coming female artist Halsey.

Indeed, the Walker Brothers' establishment has been around for a long time. But isn't there something about the colorful, stained-glass light-fixtured, warm, and hash-brown-crisped atmosphere of this restaurant that deserves its own review? In fact, Walker Brothers is more than a restaurant. It's a real-life...

The Adderal Diarie’s intensity appeals to eye

Filed under Entertainment, Reviews

"The Adderal Diaries" was a film that I never thought would captivate my interest. It was not in big time theaters and barely made it's way to the papers. When I watched the film I was actually scared. The vibe it gave was negative and dark. The film starts with a man writing, well obviously, because...

New movies decline in meaning

I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to the theatre to see a new movie. I've seen very few appealing trailers. They hype around new movies has just begun to be minimal. If I could have one huge thing added to the world of media, it'd honestly be a theatre for just the old timers. The movies...

"Make Happy" isn't Burnham's best work, but still is a great example of his comedic ability. The special showcased...

Country has slowly evolved into one of the most mainstream and repetitive genres there is- boats, trucks, beer, and girls are mentioned in merely every song. But Dierks Bentley's newest album "Black" delivers intellect and diversity, straying away from the country norm. Right off the bat, highlighting...

It wouldn't be an unfair statement to claim that I am yet again totally unqualified to review this movie, because I am ridiculously enamored with writer-director Shane Black (in a professional manner, thank you very much). Between "Lethal Weapon," "The Long Kiss Goodnight," and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"...

He has an insane amount of singles that are quite popular right now, and there is one especially famous that just began playing on the radio.
