“Iridescence” is Brockhampton’s New Shining Moment

October 30, 2018

Alternative hip-hop collective Brockhampton rose to prominence in late 2017 with the Saturation trilogy of albums, garnering a diehard fan base, along with reviews that became increasingly positive with each record. Fans and major media publications eagerly awaited their next release, but the path to their fourth album was a bumpy one.

“Tha Carter V” Upholds Lil Wayne’s Classic Music Style

The wait is finally over! After nearly seven years, Lil Wayne has blessed the rap culture with the fifth installment of his album series "Tha Carter," and I can say, it did not disappoint.

A Homemade Lemon Pie like No Other

A Homemade Lemon Pie like No Other

October 30, 2018

When I hear “lemon pie,” I think of the classic lemon meringue pie. So, when I made this lemon pie for the first time, I was surprised at how it was made. The crust is unique, and you have to make it yourself, as the main ingredient is Saltine crackers. The filling is made almost like a pumpkin pie, where it is made separately from the crust.

José’s Homestyle Food Impresses

When you walk into José’s Mexican Restaurant on 131 Sherman Street, the first thing you will notice is the ambiance. The room is dimly lit but very warm—like a home—and the walls are decorated with classic Mexican art.

Pear Ginger Cake

Pear Ginger Cake

October 30, 2018

This cake is soft, delicate, rich, and combines some of my favorite fall flavors. Browning the butter is an extra step but is as easy as simply melting it, and the subtle nuttiness it will add to the cake is worth the extra few minutes. I used red pears and kept the skins on, which added a nice touch of color.

“Searching”: A Horror Movie Inside a Computer Screen

I always love to see new ideas when I go to see a movie. It’s what keeps the experience fresh and fun after so many years. The movies worth remembering always create a story or an idea you’ve never seen before, something you couldn’t get from a book or any other medium. When a movie like Birdman presents itself as a single untarnished cut, it can completely change how you think about the process of making movies. Searching is a movie on that same level, as it brings something very fresh to the table: a whole new perspective on how to make a movie.

CRLS Improv Show Night

October 28, 2018

On Wednesday, October 10th, CRLS’ improv club, recently redubbed “Cambridge Cringe and Laughter,” celebrated its first show of the new school year. With fast-paced humor, a witty ensemble, and the occasionally cringe-inducing jokes that are a staple of improv, the club has more than earned its name.

I am always reluctant to like fall and the eventual winter it promises. But for food, the month of September brings together everything good there is to eat. It can still be warm enough to eat watermelon outside, but the next day I can be slow-roasting squash. The abundance of the harvest season could never be condensed into a single page, so here are just a few of ...

Peach Custard Cake

Peach Custard Cake

September 28, 2018

This is a recipe adapted from Bon Appetit Magazine, and in the past months, it has become one of my favorite things to eat and make. It is the perfect texture—rich and custardy yet not too heavy—and just sweet enough. Do not use an electric mixer, and make sure to really mix the eggs and sugar for a minute, or else the fruit will sink into the batter.

Roasted Delicata Squash

Roasted Delicata Squash

September 28, 2018

A longer roast at a lower temperature yields smooth, melt-in-your-mouth, rather than mealy, squash. And, as a bonus, the roasted garlic becomes caramelized and spreadable and is great on bread. Serves 8 2 delicata squashes 1 head garlic 3⁄4 cup olive oil, or enough to generously cover bottom of pan Large pinch of salt, to taste 1⁄2-1 tsp red chili flakes ~10 sprigs thyme 1⁄4 cup white wine vinegar
