    Too Good for the Wind

      “Boone, I swear to God if you throw one more rock at me I will throw you off of this mountain.” Burke had been hiking all day, and his patience was wearing thin. The mountain wasn’t trying on his attitude, but the day itself was. Storm clouds threatened overhead, and the wind picked up as the two boys climbed skywards. “I’ve got enough to worry about aside from getting knocked unconscious if by some miracle your aim improves enough to actually hit me.” “Hey, sorry man, I was just

    La Femme de Folie

      Iggy followed a smoky alleyway towards the north end of town and held her coat about her small, fragile body. She tried with little success to deter the incessant catcalling that found its way to her from inside dilapidated bars or behind the stinking dumpsters that veiled the drugs and arms deals of

    BEYOND WHITE NOISE: PAINT&SensatioN

    At around 12:30 a.m. on Friday, October 5, a crowd of thousands covered in neon paint emerged from the Dunkin’ Donuts Center and flocked the local streets. As house music blared from cars speeding away while perplexed (if not slightly begrudging), taxi drivers picked up the color-covered youth, it was clear that the night was a success. The event, Life in Color, was

    Editor vs. Editor

      Sarah O’Brien Favorite Guilty-Pleasure TV Show: Phineas and Ferb Her Views: Did I go there? Yes, yes I did. Guilty-pleasure TV means something you would not necessarily bring up in conversation…so I am going to publish mine in the paper instead. This summer, I shared a room with my younger sister, Meghan. We bonded over this show, which actually has solid jokes and entertaining musical numbers (the music has earned the series four Emmy nominations overall). Not to mention that it is the only show on television that stars a platypus spy. Co-creators Dan Povenmire (who has worked on shows such as Hey Arnold! and Family Guy) and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh (The Simpsons, Rocko’s Modern Life) aimed to establish a show with humor that would appeal to adults and children alike. Filled with pop culture references and (a personal favorite) puns, Phineas and Ferb is not one I would roll my eyes at (Candace-style) while babysitting or hanging with Meg. The one downfall of the show is being left to wonder, WHY CAN’T I EVER HAVE SUCH EPIC SUMMER VACATIONS?
