Grocery store etiquette 101

I prefer to stay away from most people, strangers especially. So, when I go to a grocery store I expect that I’m going to have an awful experience because there are other people around. And people are terrible. In another attempt at making the world a better place, I’m here to lay some grocery store […]

This is How I Roll: Apple cider cupcakes just in time for fall

There’s a chill in the air and sweaters are making an appearance. For most, the time has come. Pumpkin-flavored everything is upon us. Now, I’ve already had my fair share of pumpkin spice lattes. How can I resist? However, as my boyfriend (Hi, Brandon) not so kindly reminds me, for some who despise the large […]

Food, fun and freaks: going out to play in Coney Island

As a Pennsylvania native, I enjoy the little things that the state has to offer, but one of my favorite things about living here is that I can leave whenever I want. Last weekend, I went to Coney Island, and it did not disappoint. I am pretty sure I have been there before (or maybe […]

Listen to this: One ugly moment ruins an otherwise amazing return for Eminem

Late last year, Eminem released his ninth studio album, “Revival.” And while I didn’t review the record at the time, I can sum up my thoughts on it quickly here: It was the worst album of 2017. I’m not exaggerating to seem funny, and I’m also hardly alone in this opinion. The record was panned […]

This is how I roll: Chicken burrito bowls

Millennials love Mexican food. From burritos to tacos, they can’t seem to get enough of that spicy goodness, even if gauc is extra. Some may argue it’s getting out of hand. But you don’t see Taco Bell in Las Vegas complaining. Especially since the fast food chain is charging love birds $600 to get married […]

Alice in Chain’s ‘Rainier Fog’ best of the band’s new lineup

It’s not always easy to replace your lead singer. Sure, you can replace one guitarist or drummer for another, and it might be hard for anyone but the most hardcore fans to notice. But things start to get weird when you have to replace the voice of the band. Such is the position that Alice […]

Kingsley: I wanted to nail Eichmann to gates of Auschwitz

NEW YORK — Ben Kingsley said he didn’t portray Adolf Eichmann out of love or admiration. Rather, he wanted to “nail him to the gates of Auschwitz.” The Oscar-winning Kingsley, who has tackled historical figures before, including Mahatma Gandhi, Otto Frank and Simon Wiesenthal, said playing Eichmann in “Operation Finale” produced an entirely different feeling […]
