I hate “Cats”. Never before has a movie marinated me into a boredom induced coma, complete with shock and outright fear, until now.  Let’s take a journey into the trenches.  “Cats” is a musical turned live action movie. It is by far one of the worst  movies ever bestowed...

Oh, Valentine’s Day, a time when both love and disappointment is in the air.   Love in accordance to the holiday itself, and disappointment for those who don’t have that special someone. One of those unfortunate people is yours truly.  As a freshman, I somewhat miss the times...

Fridays are for the Aliens

The Area 51 raid quickly became the quirkiest headline of the summer, going viral after a FaceBook post.

The most anticipated storming of a secretive Air Force Base in American history happened on Sept. 20.  Kinda.  “AlienStock” was not a bop, but rather a over-hyped flop. Rather than a Spartan style siege of Area 51, we were instead gifted with dancing, alien bodysuits, and some Chad with a...

A few months ago, a woman sat down on a seat in a BART train on what she thought was chocolate, except it wasn’t.  Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is supposed to be a fast and efficient way to get around the Bay Area, but recently it’s been everything but that.

Please have pity on me, for I have the displeasure of taking a miniature hike every day and I have no say in the matter.

I cannot believe I am using my talents to write this.  Now I’ll be honest, the only time I have ever watched anything James Charles is when it is being spoon fed to me, dank meme style on Twitter.  In case you were in a coma and you still don’t know who Charles is, then just remember...
