April 6, 2018

After playing Fortnite for a solid 20 hours (for research purposes only, of course), the one thing that shocked me was how familiar it felt. This was particularly odd considering how rarely I play these kinds of online multiplayer games. After staring at the home screen for a few minutes, though, it...

Mixed Music Genres Create Mediocre Album for Justin Timberlake

“Man of the Woods” is available on spotify

Sam Klemme, Entertainment Editor

February 22, 2018

Justin Timberlake is a mystery to me. I know he has a couple popular songs and was the performer at the most recent Super Bowl halftime show that I didn’t watch. Other than that I’ve had little experience with his music. From what I know, he is one of those artists that has a song that everyone...

November 23, 2017

Originally, when I pitched this idea, I failed to realize that I would actually have to listen to Taylor Swift’s entire new album, Reputation. I haven't been a fan of her new music, since she had strayed from the country scene, but I was willing to give it a try because it was rumored to actually be...
