I love pants. Jeans, chinos, joggers – you name it, I wear it. The allure of showing off my prize-winning calves in a pair of shorts on a hot summer day pales in comparison to the way my denim-clad string bean legs contrast with the crisp golden hues of Fordham’s fall foliage. Personally, I like to cuff the legs of my pants twice; one cuff would cause my trousers to ride low on my ankles and awkwardly graze my Stan Smiths, but three cuffs would expose too much ankle, thereby compromising my warmth and masculinity. All cuffs aside, the headphones I hold in my left pocket are the most crucial component of any walk around campus I have ever found myself on, and nine times out of ten I could have been found listening to the same genre: anti-pop.
If you are a theatre nerd, such as myself, you know that one of the best parts about living in New York is going to see Broadway shows. While most of the shows out on Broadway now are great, there are a few in particular that have really blown me away. So, here is my guide to the best shows on Broadway.
Some of you may know that I have been a little MIA (sorry Claire, I truly love you) here at the paper for the past semester because I was studying abroad in Reims, France. So I figured it was about time I shared with everyone what I learned, and it all starts with one decadent dessert beverage: hot chocolate.
Honestly, I’m shocked these two albums ever came out in the first place, but here we are, and the results are mixed. Both albums were debuted via listening parties live-streamed on WAV, an app that I’d never heard of before Kanye tweeted about it.
“Album of the year contender every year,” Pusha T boasted back in 2016 on a single that was originally intended for his third album. However, since his first solo album My Name is My Name in 2013, Pusha has only released three albums in six years and the last one, King Push—Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, came out in 2015.
When my friend and I went to the Louvre we knew we had to plan accordingly. It’s the largest art museum in the world, with 38,000 pieces of art spread across over 700,000 square feet, not to mention that the Louvre Palace was established as a museum over 200 years ago. Before that it was a royal fortress then palace! Much to my friend’s dismay I was just as interested in the building as I was in the art objects, oops.
Neil Hilborn blended humor and honesty in his poetry last Saturday at the Murmrr Theatre.
I am a little afraid to be writing this right now. Will this change the way people view me? My reputation is already questionable. I am totally going to lose respect because of what I love…and that is bluegrass. I love bluegrass music.
This past weekend, Fordham Experimental Theatre hosted its Spring Playwrights Festival. A bastion of student-written theatre, FET hosts a Playwrights Festival each semester in order to showcase student written, one act plays. This spring, FET was proud to present works from FCRH juniors Tim Mountain, Phil Thompson, and myself!
A few weeks back, we at the paper were offered a unique opportunity to attend “A Case for Magic” at the NYC Frigid Fringe Festival. When I read this email, I quickly offered to represent us at the event. I like to take advantage of the random opportunities we get here in NYC, so I thought, “Hey, why not?”
