The Band Saintseneca from Columbus, Ohio, released the album “Dark Arc” on Apr. 1, 2014, on their bandcamp page for a total of $7 (or more, if you so desire). The album is around 39 minutes long and most certainly doesn’t overstay its welcome. The best way I can describe the certainly unique...

Another year for movies has come and gone, and on the whole, 2014 was another really strong one. As with any given year, there was quite a bit of [garbage], but if you were making an assessment based on the quality of the good movies, it's hard to not walk into 2015 greatly impressed overall. While ...

YouTube has created its fair share of abominations and disasters over the years but one in particular makes me… concerned. YouTube “prank” videos are nothing new but recently some have crossed the line and taken the “prank” too far. My first qualm, one of many mind you, lies within the usage...

Let’s talk about me. I am a musical child. Musical in that I pound on the piano keys and sing until my lungs burst; and musical in that I find broadway productions to be awesome. They’re totally my thing. So, you could imagine how excited I was on Christmas day, when I opened up the nice little...

On Sunday, Jan. 25, I went to see the British thriller “The Imitation Game,” though many of you may know it as “that one movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch.” The movie details the true story of mathematical prodigy Alan Turing (Bric-a-brac Crampystack) in cracking the Germans’ supposedly unbreakable...

On Jan. 20, at midnight, Fall Out Boy, released their new album, titled “American Beauty/American Psycho.” Even before I started listening to the music, I spent a good few minutes just looking at the cover art. It first was shown when they released “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” and depicts a child...

I can’t claim to be a longtime fan of J.R.R Tolkien’s works. In reality, I saw “The Lord of the Rings” movies before I ever thought of reading the book. But when I did get around to the reading, it was easy to confirm that the series was absolutely incredible. Both the books and the movies were...

The trailers, the posters, the promises of the movies of 2014 - they all seemed like such great movies, but I was left with some sort of dissatisfaction by the beginning of 2015. While I wasn’t capable to see all the movies that came out last year, I saw most of the ones I wanted to. With that said, ...
