The FYRE Documentaries

February 28, 2019

By now, you’ve probably heard about the disaster that was FYRE Festival. It took place in the Bahamas in April of 2017, when thousands of rich millennials flew out to an unfinished festival site that had almost no food and water, nowhere for them to sleep, and no way to get back to the States.

Big K.R.I.T.’s New Release Fulfills Expectations

Big K.R.I.T.’s New Release Fulfills Expectations

February 28, 2019

In late 2018, multitalented Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. dropped a set of three EPs, "Thrice X," "Double Down," and "Trifecta," which he has since assembled into one short album, TDT. Only eight tracks, this project is far less imposing than K.R.I.T.’s 2017 classic, "4eva Is a Mighty Long Time," and while this compilation does not quite reach the level of that album, it still is a good contribution with some excellent tracks on it.

Since the dawn of civilization, people have baked bread. Nowadays, much of the bread we eat is leavened using active dry yeast or instant yeast, but for most of human history, making bread rise required a longer process. Today, we call bread made with this ancient process sourdough.

When you go to a Haitian party, you are most likely going to see two different types of rice. One option is plain brown rice, and the other the one, which I am going to talk about, is ‘“diri djon djon,” or mushroom rice. Diri djon djon is rice that you make with black dried mushrooms. It is mostly cooked for special occasions and on Sundays. Without further ado, here’s the recipe for diri djon djon. Good luck!

Following a three-year wait, many fans may have been disappointed to see the album’s 25-minute runtime, but Earl gives the 15 tracks a cohesive feel and a great deal of substance, making it much greater than the sum of its parts.

“Vice’s” Portrayal of Dick Cheney Drowns in Its Own Irony

Andrew Mello, Arts & Entertainment Editor

February 3, 2019

It wasn’t until I saw a weeping Dick Cheney choking out what was meant to be his dying words that I finally understood why I was so angry with Vice. It took the man until the possibility of death, and the end of the film, to feel the weight of his sins pour out in his tears, and to know that what he had done was wrong.

February 1, 2019

21 Savage released his second solo album, "i am > i was," on December 21st. As the title suggests, this album showcases a great deal of artistic and personal growth for the Atlanta rapper. He continues with many of his usual trap bangers but supplements these with personal songs that touch on more complex themes. The album also is loaded with big name features, some being 21’s usual collaborators like Offset and Post Malone, while others are less expected, like ScHoolboy Q, J. Cole, and Childish Gambino.

January 31, 2019

"Roma" is a stunning depiction of love in the face of loss and pain. Set in the ’70s in a suburb of Mexico city, "Roma" tells the story of a wealthy family’s maid, Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio). While she spends the majority of her time cleaning, cooking, and caring for the family with another maid named Adela, Cleo seeks the same thing as everyone else: love from a man she believes to be hers. Throughout the film, which is shot in black and white, women take the lead and are the hidden strength behind each day. When Sofia, Cleo’s employer, is left by her husband for another, Cleo and Sofia support each other as the new leaders of the family.
