In exploring the endless titles for recommended viewing during quarantine I came across a recommendation for the FX crime drama "Justified." After binging the whole series in an unhealthy amount of time, I found that when I looked deeper, the series provides an interesting look into America’s police culture and when police are and aren’t justified.
I, Anupras, came into this semester facing a new responsibility. This was my first semester taking on the mantle of Opinion Editor, hoping this role would add color to my life. Lucky for me, my co-editor Sam Jones turned out to be an effervescent breath of fresh air — any apprehensions I had about working together with another person had been put to ease. The very first thing I noticed about her, way back in January (which now feels like 10 years ago) was that we had the exact same headphones. Months down the line, it would stand for a lot more than just mere coincidence.
Alina Baraz blessed the quarantine music scene with the release of her long-awaited studio album debut two weeks early. Following her two EPs — “Urban Flora” (2015) and “The Color of You” (2018), “It Was Divine” properly showcases Baraz’s unmitigated talent, proving her skill despite her comparatively short discography. Backed by well-known featured artists, such as long-time collaborator Khalid and R&B star 6lack, Baraz takes the negative impacts of heartbreak and creates something beautiful, “making a home out of herself.”
Lately we’ve seen the release of several films that explore the issue of wealth inequality and class difference, South Korea’s “Parasite” and “Burning” especially coming to mind. While a fascinating narrative to pursue, it seems as if too many films are reusing the same themes and believing that as long as a social theme is centered around the story, that it makes it profound.
Now more than ever, we need love.
We’re currently experiencing massive delays on just about every kind of America’s favorite pastimes. Whether it be sports, broadway shows, festivals or just the delicacy of hanging out with family and friends, things are on a halt all across the board.
We’re approaching the fourth week of the binge-watching marathon to end them all, but there’s only been one show that’s managed to catch my attention and hold me fully captivated on a technical and emotional level unlike anything I’ve seen on TV so far this year.
It’s hard to be critical of the company that gave us some of our most beloved franchises. “Toy Story,” “The Incredibles,” “Finding Nemo,” are only a few of the many classics to come from Pixar.
It’s astonishing to think about how just three weeks ago, life was completely normal. I was attending my college classes, sleeping in my dorm room and seeing my friends daily. It felt like a switch went off as schools started sending their students home in light of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. As I manically texted each of my friends I knew at other schools that were taking measures, I hoped for the best for Wisconsin. However, just two days later, I was in my hometown in quarantine, miles and miles away from my college friends.
New music Friday seems to be hitting differently during a period of quarantine.
In a nutshell, the Dixie Chicks are back and better than ever. Earlier this March, the American country (some might even say a touch folk-y, or country-pop) band released their first song in 14 years. And it did not disappoint.
In the first scene of FX on Hulu’s new comedy series “Dave,” you get the whole picture on the biggest insecurity faced by protagonist Dave Burd, otherwise known as internet rapper Lil Dicky. Terrified to reveal the physical situation happening “below the belt” for his unassuming doctor, Burd gets way too far into the smaller details, pulls his pants down and lets the laughs ensue.
As The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) has clearly proven his relevance throughout the decade, the stakes are increasingly high when he drops projects. How does he work to release award-winning hits, please fans who each favor certain chapters of his musical career, and most importantly, stay true to himself?
The Netflix adaptation of "All the Bright Places," a wonderfully bittersweet novel written by Jennifer Niven, follows two young adults in their journey of loss and love in the 21st century. The film highlights the unlikely relationship between misfit Theodore Finch (Justice Smith) and sociable-turned-quiet Violet Markey (Elle Fanning), after the passing of her sister in a traumatic car accident. Finch and Markey find themselves on a journey exploring the ins-and-outs of the seemingly mundane state of Indiana for a school project, but along the way learn to discover the beauty in the small and unexpected things in life.
For a band that openly rejects genre labels, Railroad Earth brought just the type of musical versatility they advertise during their show at The Sylvee on March 5. Performing styles ranging from jam band rock to pure bluegrass, Railroad Earth’s range of music melded together to create an upbeat and energetic atmosphere that readily engaged their devoted fanbase.
For as long as I was able to stay up past my bedtime, I’ve watched Saturday Night Live. When I was younger, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg were my comedic idols. My parents would show me old SNL skits from the heyday of Steve Martin, Gilda Radner and Billy Crystal. Obviously a comedy sketch show that is over 40 years-old is going to go through its highs and lows but recently I came to the realization that SNL doesn’t seem to know what it is anymore.
Theo Katzman of funk group Vulfpeck came to Madison March 8 for the first time since 2013, playing a near-sold out show at Majestic Theatre in support of his recently-released album “Modern Johnny Sings: Songs in the Age of Vibe.” Katzman and the show’s opener, Rett Madison, had incredibly dynamic performances that at one point or another made the audience think, laugh and cry. Katzman’s incredible stage presence kept the audience engaged and interested for his entire set.
When it comes down to it, creating music should really be about having fun while doing it, and producing something you are passionate about — not just something you need to write to fill a quota. The Revivalists manage to follow that passion and create music they love — and share for audiences to love as well.
Theo Katzman, singing drummer/guitarist in Vulfpeck, is set to play Majestic Theatre this Sunday, March 8, in support of his recent album release “Modern Johnny Sings: Songs in the Age of Vibe.” Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the show and less than 50 remain, with doors opening at 7:30 and Rett Madison opening at 8:30.
