    The Problem with Problems

    The Problem with Problems

    Queer digital magazine INTO recently published an article critiquing Ariana Grande's latest music video. With a title like "Ariana Grande's 'Thank U, Next' Music Video Is Surprisingly Anti-Queer" I expected an examination on what could go wrong when media that is 20 years old is shown in a modern context. I would have enjoyed that. That would have been fun.

    Top Five Most Beautiful TWICE Members

    Top Five Most Beautiful TWICE Members

    I must first clarify that this ranking is just my opinion. All members are beautiful and they each have their own charm that contribute to the success and popularity of each comeback and the group as a whole. However, each comeback and songs are suited better for some members than other. Which is why some members get more attention or look more beautiful depending on the concept. Also this ranking is not based on who is my favorite member or more popular at the moment of each comeback.

    Why We Need a New Rage Against the Machine

    Why We Need a New Rage Against the Machine

    Who here remembers when the historic rap-metal group Rage Against The Machine burst into the mainstream? I don’t because I was only two years old when they broke up, but I do listen to them on a regular basis and consider them to be one of my favorite bands. Zach de la Rocha’s rebellious, left-winged, resistance-charged lyrics, Tom Morello’s innovative and expressive guitar work, Tom Commerford’s driving bass lines, and drummer Brad Wilk’s funk sensibilities, all contributed to creating one of the greatest politically-driven bands in history. Due to a wicked time of change of cultures and politics in the 1990s, this band emerged as the voice for the underrepresented and neglected classes of people and ideas.

    Xav A. Releases Catchy New Tune 'Old Milk'

    Xav A. Releases Catchy New Tune 'Old Milk'

    Just a couple weeks ago R&B/Pop artist Xav A. released his fall single and music video "Old Milk." He stated that he hopes one day this song can be in the popular Netflix series Stranger Things. When you hear this song it gives you that back in the day, 80's dance feel. The music video is very retro and almost looks like a fun video game you would play in an arcade or a old system back in the day.

    In My Eyes: City Pop

    In My Eyes: City Pop

    The end of 2018 is only three months away, and moving onto the next year means more advances in technology, social networking, and global issues. However, over the past couple of years, there has been a few trends that have begun to resurface onto the scene with a new generation of listeners (including me) anticipating every finger-licking moment of it; and it's retro. Lofi hip-hop and City Pop are the two most spectaculars that have made its way back into mainstream, as Japan during the 80s was easily overlooked because of how voluminous the US was at the time, City pop never got into a good run, but the history of these two wonderful genres have become one the biggest live stocks in the generation to date as popularity in aesthetics, and K-pop have broken borders in the West, giving the East some credit.

    The Flava Flavs of Our Generation

    The Flava Flavs of Our Generation

    While traveling to my classes via ride sharing services; my driver brought up her opinions on the rappers of the current day. Like many people who grew up in the old school era of rap and R&B, she didn't understand the success of rappers like Lil Pump, DJ Khalid, or Lil Yachty. She wondered what about them made this new generation flock to them or why her little brother kept singing about a gang of Gucci.

    Enjoy the Gig with Your Eyes and Ears

    A couple of months ago, my boyfriend went to Reading Festival with his family. And although I wasn't there, I sort of got to be—no, he didn't freak out security by bringing another person along in his bag, but when he got back I got a lot of photos to curb my jealousy.
