‘Don’t Worry Darling’ somehow turns out to be an entertaining film despite pre-premiere drama

Written By Kylie Thomas, Co-Features/A&E Editor September 28, 2022
This past weekend on September 23, one of the most anticipated movies of the year, “Don’t Worry Darling” opened in theaters across the world. Part of the reason the movie was so anticipated is due to its casting of pop-star Harry Styles and actress Florence Pugh. Though the other part is because of the negative energy that seems to follow the film and its cast.

Written By Rachel Ross, Co-Features/A&E Editor September 28, 2022
I tend to gravitate more towards older music than new releases. The newer artists that I follow faithfully are few and far between. However, one of those exceptions is indie artist Djo, who I hold to the same high regard that I do my beloved 80’s favorites, and consider to be a brilliant beacon of hope for modern music.

Comedian Kurtis Conner wows fans with stand-up tour

Written By Rachel Ross, Co-Features/A&E Editor September 14, 2022
On Sunday, September 4th, I saw Kurtis Conner’s live stand up comedy routine in Buffalo, New York. For those unfamiliar, Conner is an internet personality, primarily creating commentary YouTube content, with over 4 million subscribers on the platform. I’ve been a big fan for several years now, and so when I heard that he was going on a stand up tour with fellow web personalities Jacob Sharpe and Dean Hebscher, and that they would be stopping in my hometown, I took the opportunity to see the internet boys live.

“The Rehearsal” blurs comedy and reality together

Written By Jake Dabkowski, Editor-in-Chief September 14, 2022
In the past twenty years, a new style of comedy has arisen.

The first mainstream, notable example of this style is 2004’s “Borat.” In “Borat,” Sacha Baron Cohen portrays the titular “Borat,” a fictitious journalist from Khazikstan who travels across America and interviews various people. A majority of the people that he interacts with in the movie are real people, and their reactions to his antics are genuine.
