During the 2000s, when I was growing in junior high and high school I looked at the kids around me and saw a startling inauthenticity. The things people said and the way people acted seemed a silly imitation of what they saw on television, or read in a magazine. The core of people seemed to be based on one-dimensional popular culture. They were defining themselves with throwaway...

It was incredible how in both conference championship games the two teams that lost had big special teams errors that played a big part in them losing. I’m not going to say that the whole blame should fall on punt returner Kyle Williams of the San Francisco 49ers or on the kicker Billy Cundiff of the Baltimore Ravens, but seriously I thought you guys were professionals.

-It seems that every film buff has a movie that speaks personally to them. I’m one of these guys, and for me that movie is “High Fidelity.” If someone tells me they don’t like that movie, or just hasn’t seen it, I get offended. I will have a long heated argument with someone, just because they don’t like my favorite movie. It’s probably because I see so...

As I was trying to make a list of some actions Ryan G. Beckwith, Bakersfield College’s new athletic director, could take to make the athletic department at BC even better, I found it difficult to find anything that really needed to be improved. Our facilities, like the football stadium and baseball/softball fields are magnificent, and our coaches do a great job utilizing...

After looking through NYFW’s designer’s collections, there are a few things to expect for the spring season. Color punching has turned into color paneling.
