As someone who expects her theater endeavours to include dramatic moments where the actors break into song, “The Play That Goes Wrong” was uncharted territory for me. Heading into the ballad-less show I have to admit my expectations were low. The moment I sat down, the play began, though not ever...

The dull and unchanging instrumental blended with Mac Demarco's repetitive vocals fill the opening track, the song "Here Comes the Cowboy." But after the drab aesthetic of the opening track, I was quickly and happily surprised as the album progressed. Straight away, “Nobody” instantly changed...

I was curious in what going to “All About Dogs Day” would entail, excited to participate and meet all the dogs present at the event. In all honesty, it wasn’t exactly what I expected, there was a lot more to see and participate in. It was held April 27 at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Var...

Adding a new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Captain Marvel” creates a spectacular entertainment experience, as we follow Carol Danvers (Brie Larson). Similar to all other Marvel movies, “Captain Marvel” begins with the classic Marvel intro. However, this time the classic Marvel i...

Billie Eilish’s debut album “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?” produces a refreshing take on alternative pop music and explores Eilish’s dark and complex mind. The album starts out with the track “bad guy,” which was an instant favorite for me. The song gradually builds intens...
