Saturday afternoon plans: kazooing in the quad

As Saturday’s big game approaches and pre-spring break assignments consume your afternoon, your stress levels may be out of control and your lack of sleep unbelievable. But instead of worrying about Grayson Allen’s 3-pointers and your intimidatingly large paper due next week, come dance around the quad, meet new friends and play the kazoo.

Palms Trax (probably) performing at Elsewhere.

Review: I went clubbing in Brooklyn and lived to tell the tale

I went clubbing not one night, but two nights this past weekend. On Friday, Feb. 23, I saw Palms Trax and Solar at Elsewhere, a nightclub in Brooklyn, New York. On Saturday, Feb. 24, I went to another nightclub called Good Room, featuring Antenes, Sofia Kourtesis, Amourette and Justin Strauss.

Column: Art and guns

It’s hard to retain perspective – to advocate for moderation, instead of quantum leaps of progress – in the wake of a tragedy as mind-numbingly horrific as the Parkland shooting. I, as much as the next appalled, pro-gun-control observer, want all the guns gone. Now, preferably.

'Fattitude' documentary challenges negative cultural trends and promotes body acceptance

Lindsey Averill and Viri Lieberman responded to the negative portrayal of overweight people in media outlets by co-creating “Fattitude,” a documentary calling attention to a nationwide culture of shaming and being prejudiced against fat people. People who plan to see the film hope that it will begin to change the way we view people who are overweight, and that we can therefore begin to see people for who they really are.
