The Spring Anime Season

Darren Davis, Staff Writer May 27, 2022
Since the drought of anime caused by 2020, we haven't had one bad season of anime, and this spring simulcast was taking notes. Even after the insanity of last season with juggernauts like Demon Slayer and Attack on Titan, a show has still found a way to take the spotlight. I’ve been looking at three particular anime this season, and their developments have all certainly been interesting.
The movie’s title screen

A Sunken Tokyo

Darren Davis, Staff Writer May 16, 2022
Overall, Bubbles is a good movie that’s pretty much only held back by the current high standards of anime. Three years ago, this movie definitely could’ve been much, but as of now, it’s originality isn’t enough to carry it to the top. Watching it isn’t really necessary with better movies out there like Your Name or any Ghibli film, but if you’ve been over-saturated with anime’s sameness, this could be a nice break.
Sonic 2 Promo

A Video Game Movie Done Right

Darren Davis, Staff Writer May 9, 2022
I don’t think that Sonic 2 is the best movie ever made or even close to that. It has numerous problems and leans a bit too much into “for kids” rather than “for everyone., but it’s still a great flick. Sonic 2 is hopefully the beginning of many meaningful and impressive movie adaptations of games.
Sky and Joey’s Final Throwback Thursday

Sky and Joey’s Final Throwback Thursday

Sky Kustes and Joey Maier May 5, 2022
Yesterday was our last day of senior year. Collectively, Sky and I are getting slightly emotional. To celebrate, we are going all the way back to 2019, the year we were freshmen. This is music we were bumping to when we were children. 
Album Review: Awaken, My Love! by Childish Gambino

Album Review: “Awaken, My Love!” by Childish Gambino

Joey Maier, Staff Writer April 29, 2022
With the fourth quarter nearly halfway finished and the weather finally warming up, you need the perfect songs for the upcoming season. Certain albums sound better during spring and summer, and this is definitely one. I’ve listened to Awaken, My Love! front and back multiple times and here is my honest opinion regarding the songs on the album. 
Sky and Joey’s Throwback Thursday

Sky and Joey’s Throwback Thursday

Sky Kustes and Joey Maier April 28, 2022
This week, we are sort of defeating the purpose of “throwback”. Sky and myself decided to take a spin on the newer age of R&B music. We had lots of options to pick from, but we were able to narrow it down to these two fantastic songs. 
Sky and Joey’s Release Radar

Sky and Joey’s Release Radar

Sky Kustes and Joey Maier April 22, 2022
BEHOLD! Release Radar makes its return. The last few weeks haven’t seen such a large turnout in new music releases, which is sad. Summer is approaching fast, with many music festivals coming up, artists are dropping tour dates, and a few of our favorites have dropped new music. These are our picks for our final Friday of High School.
Skywalker Saga Boxart

The Best Star Wars Game

Darren Davis, Staff Writer April 21, 2022
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an adaptation done right. Even the atrocious new trilogy is made better here, though still isn't great. Its hard to say that The Skywalker Saga is the best game to come out this year, as it is still held back a bit by its kid’s game moniker, but it will definitely be a game to remember. It’s a game focused on fun and definitely delivers.
Album Review: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Album Review: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Sky Kustes, Staff Writer April 20, 2022
“This album is a classic” is a sentiment I often hear. Sure, many albums from bands like The Doors, The Beatles, Ramones, and Nirvana, as well as single acts like Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash have been played time and time again over the many decades since they were released; but what is it that makes these artists and albums “classic”? I set out to find a classic album that doesn't get nearly as much attention than the other artists listed above. I decided on David Bowie’s "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars", released in 1972.
Sky and Joey’s Throwback Thursday

Sky and Joey’s Throwback Thursday

Sky Kustes and Joey Maier April 14, 2022
Covers are a hotly debated point in music, with artists covering classic and well-established songs to mixed reviews. I mean, how can one artist make a song better than the original artist can? That just sounds crazy, although, it has been done before. Joey and I have selected our favorite covers for this Throwback Thursday, and we hope you enjoy.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land box art plus in-game Art.

Kirby’s Big Switch

Darren Davis, Staff Writer April 12, 2022
Kirby and in the Forgotten Land doesn’t quite reach the pinnacle of the series, but I do think it’s up there. Super Star Ultra and Kirby Planet Robobot now have another to stand in the leagues of this franchise’s best. The 3D space lends itself to having grand boss fights and better landscapes. Others are still able to beat Forgotten Lands with things like music and mechanics though. There is still a lot of other goodness sprinkled throughout this polished 3D world like the waddle dee town you help build throughout the game and the couple of mini games the game has. Everything in Kirby in the Forgotten Lands does its best to create a fun and memorable experience. This adorable pink puffball brings experiences made not just for kids, but for truly everyone.
