I’m sure you all have your guilty pleasures—those delightful bits of enjoyment you try to eradicate from your search histories in attempts to salvage your credibility—and I am no exception. Whether you enjoy the occasional supernatural romance or find some sort of bizarre pleasure in watching bourgeois housewives pull each others’ hair, these underrated—or maybe properly rated—TV trifles are both the joy and the bane of our existence. Here are some of my current favorite guilty pleasures. I won’t judge you if you don’t judge me.
Student organization Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment hosted two feminist bloggers Wednesday to discuss sexual assault prevention as part of its sexual assault forum.
The term “March Madness” may be colloquially tied to college basketball, but heading into the last weekend of the regular season, it feels like that phrase was tailor made for college hockey, especially in the WCHA.
A tough weekend went from bad to worse for the Wisconsin men’s hockey team (1-2-1 WCHA, 1-4-1 overall) Saturday night as the team was swept by Colorado College and then lost their leading scorer, junior forward Mark Zengerle, to a broken finger.

This Sunday is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. It is a day that shaped the United State for the next decade and beyond.

Every once in awhile the Sundance Film Festival will send us Badgers a special cinematic treat. Madison is lucky enough to have a Sundance Cinema located at Hilldale Mall, which means the festival will usually give us a special screening of one of the festival's highlights. This year's film is none other than the winner of the festival's U.S. Dramatic Competition Grand Jury Prize, ""Like Crazy"". Director Drake Doremus' new film is full of fresh talent and it one of the most honest portrayals of young love in recent memory.
One more round of midterm elections is in the books, and it was a sweeping victory for Republicans nationwide. While the GOP victory may not have been as dominant as many had projected, the Republicans were still able to take the U.S. House of Representatives, grab a lion's share of the country's governorships and oust Democratic senate stalwarts, including Wisconsin's own Russ Feingold. But here in Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District, Democratic Representative Tammy Baldwin didn't even flinch.
Senator Russ Feingold and businessman Ron Johnson faced off for final time Friday night in Milwaukee. More details to and analysis to come.
Here at the New Beer desk we try to shine light on breweries that we've personally tried and think are underappreciated. Pearl Street Brewery from La Crosse has come out with some fantastic beers like the Dankenstein Double Imperial Pale Ale and El Hefe Bavarian Hefewiezen. We would focus on these great beers, but the point of the New Beer desk is to try beers that are at least familiar to us. That said, Pearl Street's D.T.B. Brown Ale left us unimpressed compared to its brothers and sisters.
India Pale Ales can be intimidating to the hophobic, but New Belgium Brewery's Ranger IPA is inviting and refreshing. Lacking the bitter overly hopped smack stronger IPAs may wallop the Ranger is nicely herbal, offering a wildly floral bouquet.

It seems like every year around February or March people make the claim that it's the worst time of year. I've heard everything: burnout from school, the not-quite-winter-but-not-quite-spring weather, winter sports winding down, and even that they just hate Valentine's Day with a fiery passion. I, however, love this time of year for one simple reason: shitty movies. Yes, this time of year is perfect for studios to pump out their corny formula comedies or awful book adaptations for audiences who don't know any better. I'm a bit of a film buff myself, and a little research produced some quite surprising news. It appears that UW-Madison itself has been an inspiration for many of these subpar films that come out this time of year. I included titles and summaries from nine of the best ones below:
Scatter-shot with casual pubs, inventive restaurants and myriad small shops, the near-east side's Williamson St. is one that a resident may never have to leave. From the New Age shops and yoga studios to the hardware stores and plumbers that line the well-traveled road, locals can find anything they need or want on Willy's short ten-block run.
