Netflix released yet another original back in February called Everything Sucks! and I’m here to spoil it for you. The show is set in 1996 in Boring, Oregon, which is actually a real place, though it was filmed in Oregon City and Portland. The show revolves primarily around the stories of Luke and Kate, a freshman and a sophomore at Boring High School. Surprise, surprise, these kids are played by real 14-year-olds and not random 24-year-olds pretending like they still look young enough to pass as high schoolers. I’m going to take you through each episode, give you the highlights, and hopefully explain why I got so emotionally invested in this short-lived Netflix original.

I’ll be the first to admit that cyberpunk is my guilty pleasure. The writing could be subpar, the actors could be boring, but god damn if you slap some neon lights and rain onto a setting, I’m instantly a fan.

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?”
In the wake of the horrific mass shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which seventeen people were killed, there has been a sustained and significant activist movement for gun control and a substantial shift in public opinion on the issue. This has given many hope that this horrible incident could potentially lead to change, even after the continued inaction that has fol-lowed previous mass shootings, such in Sandy Hook, Orlando, and Las Vegas, among countless others.
A fantastic array of vibrant colors, glistening sequins, elaborate choreography, and eloquent politically-charged commentary. Where else could you be but Sasha Velour’s Nightgowns? Nestled in the heart of New York’s favorite gentrified neighborhood, Nightgowns appears monthly at National Sawdust in Williamsburg.

“When we fail to define womanhood, we tacitly allow the systematic infantilization of women; we fail to elevate them from girlhood.”
