Surfer Blood serves as precursor to a surf rock revival

February 17, 2010

I think I’ve finally figured it out! Apparently at the beginning of each decade of music, we start all over again in the 1960s and slowly travel our way up until the late 80s and start it all over again when the next decade...

Warm up at Winterfest

February 17, 2010

It’s been over two weeks since Punxsutawney Phil mercilessly declared six more weeks of winter, and Meadville hasn’t been spared. Students around campus are feeling the weight of the ever heightening snow and schoolwork,...

Movie is a bit too sappy, sugary

February 17, 2010

Valentine’s Day can be a dangerous holiday.  Thanks to Hallmark cards, giant stuffed animals, flowers and chocolates; Valentine’s Day has become a day for others to see that you are in love, or at the very least have the...

Celebrating black history and heritage

February 11, 2010

Updated Monday, Feb. 15: The lecture by Lawrence Glasco will take place in Quigley Auditorium tonight at 7 p.m., not 7:30 p.m. as previously reported. Since 1926, America has recognized February as Black History Month. At Allegh...

Little “Love” for Travolta’s latest

February 11, 2010

“From Paris With Love” certainly wasn’t my cup of tea, but I wouldn’t stop people from seeing it, provided they’d be interested by an old–school invincible American superhero spy who dodges bullets and dishes out clever...

Single Voice brings both fiction writer and poet

February 11, 2010

History meets modernity tonight as the Single Voice Reading Series continues at 8 p.m. in the Tillotson Room of the Tippie Alumni Center, with readings from Padma Viswanathan and Geoffrey Brock. “Both are very different,”...

A dreamy, happy album

February 11, 2010

Sit down, close your eyes, and say “Beach House” and “Teen Dream.” What do you see? What do you feel? What do you hear? Whatever it is, it’s probably a lot like what Beach House’s third album “Teen Dream” sounds...

In the land of the “Lost”

February 11, 2010

The obsession with J.J. Abrams’s brainchild “Lost” is all–consuming. Blogs, forums, fan sites and many a drinking game have been invented to channel the near–religious feelings of frustration and glory fans feel for their favorite, frenzied show. Since I am not a “Lost” acolyte, I feel slightly out of the l...

Grad takes GFC stage

February 11, 2010

An Allegheny alumnus will be returning to the stage in Grounds for Change (GFC) this weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m., Shane Murphy will come to a place he frequented during open mics while he was still a student. Murphy,...

Eco-educational every week

February 11, 2010

Instead of wasting precious fuel on a ride to the bars on Wednesdays for a night you probably won’t remember, why not immerse yourself in Grounds for Change’s eco–educational screenings of “Planet Earth?”  During the month of February, GFC wil...

Eat up: New Spoon album

February 3, 2010

How can you come up with a better name for an album than “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga?” You don’t really, but that’s OK. No, this is not an album by 2.5 Lady Gagas — it is Spoon’s spectacular last album. Spoon’s last three albums...

“Bones” can be brittle

February 3, 2010

There isn’t a lot of originality on television anymore. All of the tiny sparks of creativity have been snuffed out, put on hiatus or are in limbo until March, and, though I’ve avoided the apparent heroin that is “Lost,” addict...
