You Know It’s Bad When THEY Can’t Do It On TV

You Know It’s Bad When THEY Can’t Do It On TV

January 27, 2014

And so I begin my first comedy movie review. As I said in my previous article, I am all for crude comedies. One of the funniest one’s I’ve seen is South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. Animation, foul language, and a topnotch soundtrack form the basis of this one of a kind film. Granted, the an...

Snicker Doodles: The Ultimate Cookie

January 23, 2014

On the scale of awesome cookies, the snicker doodle is at the top of the list, slightly behind chocolate chip and peanut butter. It is light, fluffy, and sweet with a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect treat. There are many methods to making and perfecting this delightful dessert, but this...

A little while back I was lucky enough to find one of those smoking hot movie deals that come in the form of packs. Any situation where I can get multiple movies for $5 is a good situation. It's even better when the movies are actually good. Lucky for me, I found myself in that situation when I discovered...

When I was asked if I would be interested in creating a column for this publication, I jumped on the opportunity. I’ve always loved to write, and it is a great way to get my name out to the public. I only had one problem… “What the heck am I going to write about?” I was stuck. Finally, one night...

USA! USA! USA! You can’t help but cheer it after watching the new Mark Whalberg flick, “Lone Survivor.” Based on a true story, “Lone Survivor” follows a group of Navy Seals who must make their way through the Afghan wilderness on a mission known as “Operation Redwing” to capture and kill...

American Hustle: Quirky and Uninspired?

American Hustle: Quirky and Uninspired?

January 5, 2014

The words “Some of this actually happened” are the very first thing you will see upon watching “American Hustle”. If you think about it, it’s a brilliant way to open a fictional biopic: it’s quirky, it’s dry and it’s very upfront. In many ways, “Some of this actually happened”, sums...

December 31, 2013

In my "Best of 2013" list I had added a sub-list of 5 other movies to look for as the year comes to a close. So far I’ve seen 3 of the movies on the list: "Anchorman 2", "The Hobbit Desolation of Smaugh" and the "Wolf of Wall Street" (and one not on the list, "American Hustle"). Not a bad apple in...

Eddie’s “Best Movies of 2013 So Far” List

December 10, 2013

Here we are, at the end of the semester and nearing the end of the year. In a few weeks the internet will be bombarded with “The Best ___ of 2013” lists, so I figured I’d beat the rush, and get my list out of the way early. Naturally, because 2013 isn’t quite finished yet, and some of the best...

One of my all-time favorite recipes for winter has to be homemade chicken noodle soup and gourmet grilled cheese. Sorry, Cambell’s, nothing beats chicken noodle soup made from scratch.  It’s light, healthy, delicious, and is perfect for cold and rainy days and even a good cure for the common cold....

For the Love of Food: Gourmet burgers & potatoes

Elizabeth Witowich, Lifestyles Columnist

November 22, 2013

As a resident foodie, there are few things I love more than hamburgers. Although traditionally reserved for summer time, this is a recipe I have made dozens of times and one that is perfect for all occasions. Normally I would make homemade French fries with this recipe, but due to time constraints...
