Post Column: 'Cloud Atlas' could have used more Hanks

I was recently fortunate enough to attend a showing of Cloud Atlas, the Wachowski siblings’ latest tour de force/Tom Hanks’ latest shameless Oscar grab. Now, I pride myself on being a harsh movie critic, which is why I’m not going to pull any punches here: Cloud Atlas was awesome, and I loved every minute of it. BAM! Tellin’ it like it is, folks; go cry about it if you think I’m being too mean.

Post Column: Extreme ideas make compromise difficult

In Germany, American pop songs are all over the radio. My new friends from Slovakia and China picture the U.S. as the land of freedom and a great role model. There is little doubt about the U.S. influence and leadership as a symbol in the world. But as far as domination goes and whether the U.S. wants to continue leading the world, there are several things America may want to reconsider.

Post Column: Indoor show by 110 pumps up MemAud

Ohio’s marching band is the pride and joy of our school. People go to football games just to see them perform. They’ve gone viral on YouTube at least twice, and Korean pop star Psy personally stated that he loves them. Psy! The only way for the Marching 110 to receive a better seal of approval is if Jesus has his second coming just to tell us how much he liked our “Party Rock Anthem” performance.

Post Column: Grocery bill racks up far too quickly

During the summer, as I prepared to move into my apartment, I had high expectations. I looked up dinners to make for my roommates, found appetizers to make for my tailgating parties and searched desserts that I could have as late-night snacks. It was going to be an amazing year in the kitchen and I was not going to miss the dining hall.

Post Column: Choosing the campaign season's MVP

If the presidential campaign were a sport (which it practically is anyway), then Election Day would be the Super Bowl. Or the World Series. Or whatever the last game in basketball is called.

Guest Column: For Mitt Romney

Gov. Mitt Romney is the only choice for a prosperous future. He represents the values and ideas that have made this country great. This election is the most important that we have faced in our short lives; it could have devastating effects for our future if we choose to go down the wrong path.

Guest Column: For Barack Obama

Ladies! Listen up. It should come as no surprise that women will decide this election. That’s why we’re seeing strong mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and friends coming together to do whatever it takes to make sure we can continue to strengthen the middle class and keep America moving forward.

Post Column: Organ concert impressive, but not moving

This Halloween weekend, I did something I haven’t done for years. Was it the fact that I went overboard with my costume, shaved my head and drew permanent marker all over my face? No, I go overboard with my excitement for children’s holidays all the time — Halloween weekend marked the first time in years I went into a church on Sunday.

Post Column: New schedule alters more than class times

As an upperclassman, it seems like just yesterday I was sitting in my dorm room trying to register for as many Monday and Wednesday classes as I could. It’s hard to imagine that so much has changed in just three short years, most notably our switch from quarters to semesters … and the fact that I have Friday classes.

Post Column: A harrowing encounter with OU's undead

I’ll admit, when I was dispatched to cover the recent disturbances on campus, I was less than impressed by what I saw. What in the Sam Hill was I doing here? I was Ryan McAndrews, intrepid and fearless reporter extraordinaire! I had covered Vietnam, Korea and 9Fest! What horrors could this “HvZ” nonsense have that were so important for the American public to see?

Post Column: Ghosts make mischief in toy stores, court

In the spirit of Halloween, let’s talk about ghosts. The first thing I’d like to say about ghosts is that if police could physically arrest ghosts, the number of registered sex offenders in the nation would double.
