Noname Releases “Room 25” Two Years After Last Album

October 30, 2018

Chicago rapper Noname, two years since her debut,Telefone, is back with a gem in Room 25. An intimate and jazzy work, this album is sure to light up any listener’s downtime. Noname’s cutting, spoken-word style lyricism is a breath of fresh air and originality in today’s rap landscape. The album spans eleven tracks and is just over a half-hour in duration, but its fully-developed musical ideas provide the satisfaction of a longer project.

November 9th, 2016: The day the world learned Donald Trump was the president-elect of the United States of America.

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.

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

Andrew Mello, Arts & Entertainment Editor

October 29, 2018

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.

Early Fall Produce Guide

Miriam Alvarez-Rosenbloom, Layout Designer

October 22, 2018

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 ...
