“Can I see what it feels like to pull the trigger?”
Another fifteen slides of  black backgrounds and crying faces flash on the screen. In a deep, tortured voice, the new Abc drama is announced, “American Crime, Thursday, 10/9 central”. Felicity Huffman finishes the preview with a straight face, holding the gun, staring down her prey. Long story short, she’s crazy. They’re all crazy, and we love it. Nothing gives the 9 o’clock American viewer a thrill like 50 minutes of gruesome, R-rated violence, chronically unhappy and disoriented …

Paris is known for being The City of Love. While this reputation is undeniable, the culture and history showcased in this artistic metropolis are unparalleled throughout the world. As I recently discovered for myself, the extent to which these creative exhibits cover the city is almost overwhelming. In order to most effectively plan ahead, for those lucky enough to be visiting Paris, or just to explore the many aspects of the aesthetic experiences available in this great city, we will dive into three of Paris’ most popular …

Everyone loves to label themselves as a “90s kid”, but what was so special about the 90s that makes everyone want to throw themselves into a category of a time period they barely remember? The 90s are known for plastic jewelry, MTV music videos, and toys that did not require a charge but rather an imagination. It also produced what I believe is some of the best rap music ever produced. Its no secret that the 90s are back and everyone wants to be a part of …

What started as an optical illusion has become a controversy worthy of civil war.  In late February 2015, an image came to light that would change the world forever.  No longer would wars between countries be an issue.  Instead, the world was set into two separate camps.  The Blues and the Golds.
Okay, so maybe that was an exaggeration…
Even though we’re not in World War 3: The Color Crusades, it’s still a pretty intense issue in today’s world.  Most people don’t understand how one person can see a Blue …

By the time show’s hit season 3, usually one of four things has been indicated. It could mean.. the show is dead, and it never hit a season 3. It could mean…the bad show is still bad. It could mean… the show was good but now is bad. Or it could mean the show is still good, and thus, a great show. House of Cards is that last one.
House of Cards is in this position because the fantastic season 3 puts its stars (Kevin Spacey and Robin …

Netflix, an online video streaming website, has taken over the life of the modern teenager.  Where once Friday nights were the pinnacle of the high schooler’s social agenda, now it is more common for them to be lounging on their couch soaking up the final episode of Mad Men and eating cold pizza (or is that just me?)
Okay, there’s no way I’m the only one.  Just ask around about House of Cards, Breaking Bad, or Friends-it is more than likely that at least half of the kids around you …

With two new fast food chicken restaurants arranged fairly close to each other in Lincoln, there has been some controversy over which fast food chicken place is better overall.  Everyone has their own taste and their own opinion, but with many different chicken restaurants taking over, they must provide their own special trademark to compete to be the best in Lincoln.
Raising Canes chicken has become extremely popular over the last few years.  There are multiple locations that have popped up all over Lincoln, including the …

It’s not often an album can be called funny, but Father John Misty has done just that. Josh Tillman released his second album as Father John Misty, I Love You, Honeybear, on February 10, 2015.
The former Fleet Foxes drummer channels deep root folk writing and melody throughout the album. He is able to create humor in the album, the most prominent example being “Bored in the U.S.A”. Tillman’s album draws humor from mostly cynical, self deprecating humor, but in a way the listener is able to feel …

As the beginning of March is upon us, the dreaded “senioritis” has come into full swing.  Because it is the week before spring break, the motivation to do homework (or even show up for class) is at an all time low.  Seniors are failing tests left and right, neglecting to do their homework, and repeatedly zoning out during class.  The worst part is, they don’t even care.
Senioritis is a disease spreading rampant throughout the halls of East High.  East seniors attend class in their comfiest clothes, appearance is of …
