There are many perks to living on Eastern Michigan University’s campus: The people are life-changing, everything is within a 15-minute walk and the squirrels are friendly. Yet one of the biggest and, in my very humble opinion, underappreciated perks is Golden Wall, the Chinese restaurant just off campus at 421 W. Cross St.
“The New York Ripper” (1982)
I have to admit: When I imagine an activist fighting to make violence against women a thing of the past, a man from Texas is not who immediately comes to mind.
If any of you single guys have ever wished you could pay a stranger to write nice things about you on your Facebook page or go on raids with you in “World of Warcraft,” a new service called Fake Internet Girlfriend might be just the thing you need.
America: The land of opportunity. At least, it used to be.
These days, such mantras as “land of opportunity” or “the American dream” seem like the platitudes of a bygone era, etched into the ruins of some ancient empire, ebbed away by the sands of time. Or in our case, it has been eroded by the stagnating and declining middle class. The solution to this problem is simple to state and hard to implement: Public education needs to be widely available and useful.
On Wednesday evening my friends and I began a small celebration. It was our friend’s 20th birthday and he spent his night—since he is a fellow Brit—not in a pub or at a club, as on his 19th or 18th, but in our apartment clasping a red cup.
Republicans may take solace in a recent Gallup poll that showed 40 percent of Americans identify as conservative, 35 percent as moderate and only 21 percent identify as liberal—but those numbers provide a false sense of comfort.
“Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” (1994)
“Skyfall,” the latest James Bond movie, which was released on DVD Feb. 12, is a mixed bag.
“The Wraith” (1986)
“Paper Mario” has made the leap to its first handheld console with “Paper Mario: Sticker Star” on the Nintendo 3DS.
Sonny Moore, also known as Skrillex, is in a very convenient position in his career. He may not be making the most money in the music industry, he doesn’t have the most Facebook fans and he definitely isn’t the most critically acclaimed artist. Still, there are few musicians who are in the same spot he’s in; the spot where he can do practically whatever he wants because nobody’s going to change their mind about him.
Americans enjoy watching TV. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans aged 15 and older spend about half of their leisure time watching TV—an average of 2.8 hours a day.
Recently I was reading the German magazine Der Spiegel, just checking the value of my bratwurst stocks, when I saw there’s a big scandal in Europe over beef. More precisely, what is in the beef: Apparently there’s horsemeat in there, people!
I do not know anyone who is for poverty in the U.S. In fact, I am confident most Americans are against poverty in general.
During the 2012 presidential election, there was much debate about immigration policy and the rapidly shifting American population. Specifically, the quickly growing Latino population.
If you were to look at a list of my favorite instruments, you would see a lot of diversity. Saxophone and steel drum are my top two, and also high up on the list are the bass guitar, combo organ, violin and ukulele. What you won’t see on my list, however, is the flute. On Christopher Owens’ solo debut, “Lysandre,” the first sound heard is that of a flute. And I have never heard the instrument sound as horrendous as it does, opening this record.
“The Midnight Meat Train” (2008)
President Barack Obama has given the first State of the Union address of his second term. The State of the Union? We’re frakked.
Marco Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, delivered his party’s response to President Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address of his second term—and it was awful.
