As the 2013-2014 school year commences, Lafayette fashionistas are strutting their stuff in the latest styles. Though crop-tops and shirts with cut-out backs were all the rage in June and July, these summer-chic fashions have come and gone. School dress code prohibits students from baring their...

It’s funny how something as natural as sexuality is such a big scandal to many. While it is at least understandable how humans tend to deny and question things considered foreign, it has never made sense to me. It was never a question of denying anyone thier rights based on their beliefs, way...

This weekend, I expected Twitter to be littered with AP memes, Cinco de Mayo jokes and the like. What I didn't expect was the deepest secrets, some more true than others, I'm sure, splattered all across my Twitter feed. Everything you would ever want to know about the personal lives of Rockwood's...

With all the recent violence in the news, it brings up the age old question of the “true nature” of humans-is man a vile and corrupt being, with a “heart of darkness,” or do we have morals and justice bred into our existence? From a philosophical view, everyone from Hobbes to Locke have submitted...

News of Roger Ebert’s death struck me a lot more than I expected it to. It also came as a great surprise even after learning that he had cancer (long after he actually contracted it, mind you). For some reason, I felt like he was going to be around for a lot longer than he was; that he was going to...

Over the past 12 months, I've been reading a bunch of comics in an attempt to better understand a medium that I've always had a peripheral interest in but never really jumped into. I tried to stay away from “mainstream” superhero comics, since I knew that was a rabbit-hole I had no intention...

Another list! As the title indicates, this one is for movies rather than games. I feel slightly stronger about this list than I do the last one, as I didn't have to cut a bunch of excellent experiences. Anyway, enjoy! 11.
