With Professors and Students Sucked into Netflix Vortex, Classes Will Not Resume After Spring Break at Most Universities

  March means spring break for colleges and universities all around the U.S. While there are a number of students who do the stereotypical Mexico-and-tequila pairing, many students take their week off to relax, step away from their books, and just hang out. Professors, apparently, have the same idea as their students. Investigations show that…

3 Take-Aways from Viceland’s New Show, “Weediquette”

1. Weed may be the cure for cancer. Even though it may seem like stoners looking for another excuse to legalize it (cue Sean Paul), there is actually scientific evidence that THC and cannabanoids can shrink tumors and stop cancer cells from growing without damaging existing cells.

The Collard Reviews: Carol

I’m still trying to piece together how I feel about Todd Haynes’ lesbian period piece, Carol. On one hand, it’s a series of gorgeous moving paintings occupied by nuanced performances. On the other, it feels stifled and acted. The entire time, I was very aware that I was watching it in 2016 and that I…

Man Who “Didn’t Get” Kendrick’s Grammy Performance “Really Loved” Seeing Johnny Depp Get the Chance to Shred

    Sporting a tuxedo t-shirt and graying goatee, local man and “amateur bassist” Kyle O’Donnell shrugged his shoulders when asked what he thought of Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy performance.   “The fire was cool, don’t get me wrong,” O’Donnell said, “I just didn’t really get it. Plus, I’m pretty sure that was a picture of…
