What was once more commonly seen as played with objects like pencils and paper has been practically replaced by square emojis and a score out of six.

What’s a walk through campus without music? While passing others, it’s almost certain to be met with smiles or nods of acknowledgement in lieu of conversation as most have music cranked in their ears. For those who are not fans of constant music, or who are simply looking for a switch up, considering other options is a good way of keeping entertained while trudging along. Perfecting a personal commute playlist is an art form, and another factor to consider when updating a fresh playlist is podcasts.
The home stretch is in sight, and Thanksgiving break is right around the corner. Typically, this point of the semester feels a bit like the beginning of the end. Everything is happening all at once; midterms are done and finals are already rapidly approaching. It’s a stressful period, and what is perhaps more stressful is the idea that leaving for break will be met with coming back to the final week of classes: a phenomenon certainly easier to forget about over the course of the ongoing pandemic.
Second albums are a delicacy. First albums may be perceived as a bit of a shot in the dark, while second albums are a chance to really seal the deal and guarantee a place in the long haul. To name a few killer second albums: Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours (their second within the Nicks and Buckingham era), Carole King’s Tapestry, Nirvana’s Nevermind. Tom Petty’s Wildflowers is yet another killer second album, released 27 years ago on November 1, 1994.
As Homecoming weekend comes to a close, week eight begins. It’s been a busy time of classes in full swing, homecoming festivities and, for many of us, midterms scattered throughout or beginning. Coming down from the chaos and “reentering” the academic world is not without difficulty, and Bobcats are rather busy.
Week six is upon us, and things can objectively be considered a little weird. With hybrid classes, what was once navigating routes from building to building has been replaced by a fair amount of isolated spot-picking to tune into a Zoom meeting.
Walking around campus, one of the most exciting things to see is everyone’s outfits. Fashion trends come and go, with both newly created and rediscovered pieces. Nowadays, many people are sporting big pants of sorts: plaid, overalls, sick-patterned sweaters, both baby and oversized tees – all of it. When the weather finally cools down and fall fashion is in full swing, a nod to the late ‘90s and early 2000s will be in order. A trendy plaid blazer and skirt set without an ode to Alicia Silverstone? Ugh, as if!
In 2020, many events set to take place were postponed or cancelled altogether to ensure safety and overall feasibility. Anniversaries or commemorations factored around dates would be recelebrated, which can certainly be unfortunate in terms of sentimentality, but lucky in general for those events able to be rescheduled. Concerts fell victim to this event grouping, such as Alanis Morisette’s Jagged Little Pill 25 Year Anniversary Tour, initially set to kick off in June 2020 in Portland, Oregon.
What are the odds of your home team hosting an opponent they have not played in 100 years within the four years that you are in school? On Friday night, the Bobcats kicked off their 2021 football season against the Syracuse Orange, who they last faced in 1921 at Syracuse’s Archbold Stadium, prior to the construction of their Carrier Dome. To make matters even cooler, the game marks the first time that the Bobcats hosted an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. As if the situation was not bizarre enough, I happened to get to attend the game with a diehard Syracuse fan.
Studying inside can become monotonous; working outside is a great way to add some variety to your study sessions.
The anticipation leading up to a concert is unlike any other. Receiving the confirmation screen and holding the tickets in hand (or adding them to your digital wallet) make the show and excitement all the more real. Concerts keep us spinning, They’re rejuvenating and frankly, it’s a lot of fun to see a show. Live music is on its way back, and working together to ensure that it’s able to stay is imperative.
Take a leap of faith on Voigt Hall to discover its perks and history.
Holidays always have a way of feeling different with age. It is a shift felt when the holiday arrives; we might not feel the same feelings of excitement and anticipation. Another holiday passing in the pandemic allows this shift to feel even more peculiar. Nonetheless, hints of normalcy bring some of this magic back. Holiday traditions help keep the spirit going. They allow feelings of childhood magic to remain, providing normalcy in the process. Continuing holiday traditions, big or small, can help to keep this magic and contribute to the feeling of normalcy.
Last Saturday marked the first day of spring: a season of warmth, growth and beginnings. Finally being able to feel the sun again is an incomparable feeling, especially upon reflection of the past year. Progress has been made, yet we are still in a very challenging, difficult and draining period of life. This spring, a one-year mark of the pandemic, reasonably holds a more delicate aura.
“Damn the man, save the empire!” Rock and roll and rebellion go hand in hand. Many other themes in classic rock songs include breaking free, winning, not holding back, etc. Rock and roll is not limited, it hits on various different elements and themes including sweetness, love, pain, all of it. In terms of damning the man, however, and with Pink Floyd and Alice Cooper as representatives, education has been questioned and painted as flawed by rock music. Nonetheless, many rock singers have taken to higher education, allowing the principle and privilege of attaining higher education to remain dignified.
Pondering with Patterson: Examining 'Jagged Little Pill' and the celebration of International Women's Day
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8, serving to highlight achievements and advances from and for women across the world. While highlighting such, it is essential to consider and celebrate countless women who have paved the way and continue to do so. Women belong in every industry. In the music industry (like most others), it is no secret that it’s more difficult to be taken seriously as a woman. Women in music have given art, paved the way and shaped generations. In terms of celebrating, there is nothing more fitting than an ode to Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill”: an album that will stand the test of time.
Many, if not all, decisions boil down to cost and convenience. We have experienced many changes in convenience through services within this last year, such as home-offices, delivery and takeout, etc.
Snow days aren’t what they used to be. I’m sure that I once participated in putting my pajamas on inside out or flushing an ice cube down the toilet, hoping that the call would get made before I went to bed. It was easy to hope for a day off, a phenomenon not nearly as easy in an online-learning format. As many of us are met with snow, we are met with a lack of snow days as well.
It isn’t typical to go into spring break with the idea that your life and the world around you are going to change completely. Unfortunately, that was the case for college students in spring 2020. As college students, we go into spring break with pent-up emotions and a number of expectations for fun and rest, to some degree. In a time full of changes, our spring break this year, once again, is atypical.
Smells Like Teen Spirit, Wonderwall, Under the Bridge? Overplay of certain tracks has given ‘90s alternative rock a bit of bad buzz, but there is a reason why these tracks are sought out. Maybe “Wonderwall” has been a little played into overkill...but there is always going to be a time and a place where Oasis is a part of the secret weapon to carry the night on. Tracks like “Champagne Supernova” or depending on your preference, “Wonderwall,” mixed into the queue with tunes from bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, R.E.M. or Nirvana are sure to keep a great atmosphere with the headspace solid and the mood right. ‘90s alternative rock rules, and there’s no reason to not embrace it.
