Netflix has been a household name for years, from when it used to mail DVDs to your front door to the corporate overlords it is now. Because of this success, several other streaming services have hit the market, giving Netflix some competition. Lately, Netflix has raised some outrage from long-term customers by canceling several animated series they promised the public. Such as the “Wings of Fire” animated series based on the books by the same name and the “Bone” series, a fantasy graphic novel.
Just when we thought the Luhrs Performing Arts Center schedule could not get any better, the hit improv-based comedy show “Whose Line is it Anyways?” is heading to Shippensburg this spring.
Paradox Interactive — a Swedish game developer and publisher known for historical grand strategy series like “Europa Universalis,” “Hearts of Iron” and “Crusader Kings” — has returned to the Victorian age with a sequel to its 2010 classic “Victoria 2.”
I will be the first to admit that I am not much of a reader. It is not that I do not like to read — my ideal day is being curled up with a good book. The problem is I never have time to sit down and truly give a book my full attention. So, it should be a clear indication of its quality that “The Bright Lands” was not only a book that kept my attention throughout, but one that I finished in just a few days: I simply could not put it down.
I was fortunate to see another performance of “Endangered” at the 2022 Dodge Poetry Festival in Newark, New Jersey, where Yusef Komunyakaa was a featured poet and has been for much of its history.
Flying Solo Paris Fashion Week (PFW) showcased Bretagne Studio’s “Spring Court” collection on Oct. 2.
Everyone has their own ways of getting in the Christmas spirit, but like many others, I find my comfort in the familiar classics of the silver screen. From the first two “Home Alone” movies to the antics of the Griswold Family in “Christmas Vacation,” I’m always willing to overlook some of the weaker parts of movies like these because they just fill me with that warm holiday feeling. With that being said, when a Christmas movie is bad, it can ruin my spirit immensely – especially if I’m the only one who seems to feel this way. I’m, of course, referring to the endless mountain of garbage that is Hallmark Christmas Movies.
It’s safe to assume that of the many holidays, Thanksgiving is the one that gets it the worst. Not only do you have more and more people ignoring its existence in order to get to Christmas faster, but it also has to share the day with one of the worst holidays: Black Friday. There’s no true origin of the Black Friday we know today, but the concept has virtually remained the same since its inception. Retail stores around the country post their best deals and discounts on the night of Thanksgiving all through the following Friday. Customers so desperate for the bargains often camp outside for hours on end, and once those doors open it’s every man, woman, child and person for themselves.
All throughout high school I couldn’t wait to get to college to have competent professors. Many of my high school teachers were lackadaisical and didn’t care about how students performed in their class, and my college experience hasn’t been much different. You shouldn’t choose to be an educator if you can’t teach, but sadly many people do.
Millions of fans competed on November 15 to get tickets in the verified fan presale for Taylor Swift’s long-awaited tour: The Eras Tour.
It’s a rainy Friday morning. I’m in my dorm, scrolling through TikTok as any college student does (I’ve finished my homework – don’t worry mom.) I’m filtering through all the targeted ads filled with perfect people with trim waists and porcelain skin. I know these ads know something about me: I’m a teenage girl in college. This means that I am their most insecure demographic—most susceptible to selling my soul to a 12-step skincare routine that will save my life somehow. I dodge the aspirations the ads are trying to dangle in front of me because while my feed is filled with an overwhelming abundance of perfect women smiling and laughing at how perfect they are, I remember what it’s like to look up from the screen. I know what normal, real people look like.
Ryan Murphy's award-winning anthology series is back again for its 11th installment, this time titled “NYC.”
As a Political Science major, I am no stranger to talking about politics, especially over the holidays. In fact, as college students, many of us return home and our family assumes that, regardless of major, we are all studying to be scientists of politics, and take that as an open invitation to talk politics whether we want to or not. So, even if you aren’t a Political Science major, you most likely still have these discussions because you’re likely a young college student. All the older generations know that you are a part of the population of people who may or may not be voting (Public Service Announcement: I hope everyone voted this midterm election).
I recently checked out “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Even though the studio spent months and months reassuring us that Chadwick Boseman would not be brought back in CG form, I still went into the movies hesitant seeing how Hollywood seemingly cannot get enough of this practice. Taking either a recently deceased or long-since dead actor or actress and bringing them back to life through visual effects is, frankly, disgusting.
One of music’s biggest nights is slowly creeping up on us, with the 65th Annual Grammy Awards taking place on Feb. 5, 2023.
There was an article titled “Discrepancies in the University-101 curriculum” in last week’s edition of The Slate. While reading, I was dismayed by a series of quotes attributed to Alex Karlheim, the director of Shippensburg’s First Year Experience.
The interconnectedness of the internet has made mob mentality so much more powerful. It is easy to jump on the hate train when thousands of other people you’ve never met are already doing it. We’re also living in one of the most polarizing times of recent decades, where people draw definitive lines between those like them and those who have different ideas.
If you asked me two months ago for my predictions for the 2022 midterms, I would have probably said that Democrats would pick up a seat or two in the Senate and lose the House.
The woodwind ensembles of the Shippensburg University music department held their fall semester concert in Old Main Chapel on Nov. 6. Three groups including the flute choir, clarinet ensemble and saxophone ensemble spent the semester coming together and practicing various pieces for this concert.
