Last fall, I took the semester off due to increasingly serious depression.
The 1980s were something of a golden age for film. “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “The Princess Bride” and “The Breakfast Club” are only a small sliver of cinematic brilliance that came out of the decade.

Summer is at an end, school has just begun and Madison students are finally beginning to wake from what I call the “Summer Netflix Coma.” This common, transmissible condition begins when students are finished with finals and face the sudden urge to drop everything, slip into a Snuggie and binge watch their favorite show that has been absent from their lives since the first round of exams hit.
Four years after his record-breaking Channel Orange, Frank Ocean returns with two new releases that find him writing his feelings alive and helping us cope with ours.
