Tangerine Reef: 1% Music, 99% Nonsense

Tangerine Reef: 1% Music, 99% Nonsense

Sam Klemme, Quintessence Editor-in-Chief

September 5, 2018

Tangerine Reef, created by the experimental group Animal Collective, is a melismatic set of music that is quite honestly confusing to listen to. Let me start off here by saying I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had never heard of the band or even some of the genres that the album cove...

Family Film “A-X-L” Flops

Family Film “A-X-L” Flops

Natalie Pearson, Entertainment Editor

August 30, 2018

Oliver Daly made his directorial debut last weekend with “A-X-L,” and I was not impressed. That is to say, it’s downright awful. Starring a generic protagonist and his killer robot dog, this movie attempts to hop on the “man’s best friend” bandwagon that has inundated cinema as of late, an...

“Christopher Robin” is a Tear Jerking and Heartwarming Fantasy

Blaine Wikoff, Media Editor

August 24, 2018

Some movies are heartbreaking, others are heartwarming. “Christopher Robin” is both. I went into the movie skeptical - considering I was a seventeen-year-old seeing a Winnie the Pooh movie - but I made sure to go in with an open mind. As the movie started, I began to feel like a kid again. The begi...

Within a forgotten strip mall nestled between Lowe’s and the edge of a subdivision lies a friendly, unique restaurant serving up delicious bowls of pho (pronouced “fuh”), a broth-based Vietnamese meal comprised of noodles, veggies, meat and other toppings.  Fusion Taste, located at 14450 Eagle Run Dri...

May 11, 2018

Although many Skutt Catholic students may not have heard of the recently opened Timber Creek restaurant in West Omaha, its pizza and cuisine are certainly worth talking about. The environment of the restaurant is very modern and resembles nature through wood paneling placed throughout the restaurant. The restaurant itself was on th...

“Avengers: Infinity War” Is Entirely Average

Natalie Pearson, Staff Reporter

May 7, 2018

With over 30 superheroes involved, there’s plenty of potential for things to go awry in Avengers: Infinity War. Being a decade in the making and Marvel’s biggest crossover to date—needless to say, I was hyped. I jumped at the first chance I got to see it in theaters. Essentially, in Infinity...

When I first heard that rapper Snoop Dogg had released, of all things, a gospel album- I was shocked. When I first heard the rapper Snoop Dogg’s gospel album- I was even more shocked. Every single song in the album is great, whether it be a traditional gospel hymn or a contemporary hip-hop song. ...

April 19, 2018

When my mom first asked me to see this movie, I was a bit hesitant. I thought it would be some cheesy religious movie, but I was definitely wrong. The movie is about how the song, “I Can Only Imagine,” by MercyMe is created and how the artist, Bart Millard, found the inspiration to write the hit...

April 12, 2018

As a senior who’s managed to ward off senioritis enough to hold on to his senior privileges, I’m often on the lookout for off-campus spots to spend my extended lunch hour. My latest visit was to Spin! Pizza, a new eatery just west of Skutt Catholic, at 173rd and Center Street. Opened last fall,...

“Fortnite” Reveals Larger Trend in Gaming

“Fortnite” Reveals Larger Trend in Gaming

Nathan Fletcher, Staff Reporter

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...

April 5, 2018

Once I heard that Steven Spielberg would direct "Ready Player One," I decided to read the book before the movie came out. It quickly became one of my favorite books I have read and I was excited for the movie. One thing that made me nervous before I saw the movie was that Spielberg would not stay faithful...
