Here is a hot (and probably unpopular) take: the movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is overrated.
Last week, Olson released his first solo EP as L. Martin titled Playful Enemy. While this EP is only 6 songs–a mere 20 minute listen–it certainly left an impact on me. To me, Playful Enemy felt like the process of healing. Recovery, you could say.
Do not read this if you intend on seeing the movie. But don’t see it…

The term “safe space”, is often thrown around by both liberals and conservatives in their political diatribes. Safe spaces are often pictured as areas were people can escape our harsh political climate, or where whiny college students go to complain. In this case, a safe space is quite apt to describe my experience playing Blizzard Entertainment’s MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game for you non nerds), “World of Warcraft”, or WoW, for short.
Like most sequels, Sicario: Day of the Soldado expands the original’s scope and is also not as good as the original. The sequel no longer has Emily Blunt as its lead, nor does it have Denis Villeneuve as its director, each loss to the detriment of the film. In the sequel, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin reprise their roles and make an effective and entertaining duo, but without Blunt there is something missing. Her character was the first film’s moral compass, knowing right from wrong and caring about the distinction. Brolin and del Toro’s characters don’t have a similar sense of morality, or at least not ones that align with legality.
As someone who wanted to start their summer off productively, I decided to binge-watch all nine seasons of The Office (slightly less if you consider the fact that seasons 1 and 4 were less than 20 episodes long). For those of you somehow not familiar with the show (in which case, stop reading and start watching),was a show on NBC that aired from 2005 to 2013, spanning 201 episodes in all. It stars such comedians as Steve Carrell, Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, and Jenna Fischer and takes on the gutsy task of creating comedy out of the mundane and soulless office environment that most middle-class Americans are familiar with.
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.
Solo’s ratings were so low, but it is actually not as bad as they say.…
