Your step by step guide to success on all things Instagram

“Best Freakfest ever with my best girls #halloweeekend.” The world of Instagram is generating much more than ever imagined. Photos explaining what you did the night before, or photos of the best meal you’ve ever had. At the end of the day, it does not really matter what you throw down on that social network, it just matters how many likes you get. Yes, I said it, people Instagram to see how popular they can be. It is a way to measure ones own popularity. Do not get me wrong, I am one of those many girls who Instagram all the time.

'Mary Poppins' is positively supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

It’s a rare occasion that I’m left speechless at the theater, but the production of “Mary Poppins” currently showing at the Overture Center completely blew me away. This show follows the classic story, originally written as childrens’ books by P.L. Travers, about a whimsical British nanny put in charge of two troublesome children, George and Jane Banks.

Satire: more kicks and more pricks

What a strange and wonderful beast comedy is. Unfortunately, it’s not always well adapted to the yoke of literature. The presence of mind required by reading is different than that of film or television or theatre, and the wordy rigid structure of a book can do serious damage to the sort of spontaneity and vivaciousness comedy demands. I’m being very vague here.

Fun. rocks in sold out Varsity Hall

When Fun. came to Madison last March they were a band on the edge of stardom. They returned to Madison Jan. 24 with two number-one hits, huge festival shows in Milwaukee and Chicago and a gold record on their resume. But despite their recent success, Fun. still brings the same youthful exuberance to the stage that made them great a year ago.

'Are you going to finish that?': the choice a reader must make

What was the last book you didn’t finish? Come now: you’re not all perfect little literature angels heralding the merits of the written word. Was it a class reading? Was it a book for recreation? Did one of you little fools try and read “Finnegans Wake” on a dare? On a related note, did you survive and/or avoid hospitalization?

And you thought you had roommate drama

Were you one of the lucky seniors in high school that looked at their future Badger roommate on Facebook and shuddered with fear at what lay ahead? Or, better yet, did you arrive on campus, fresh-faced and ready to begin drinking (ahem, studying), only to realize that your dorm life was going to be a living hell? Enter, “The Female Odd Couple,” a comedic production that speaks to the hearts and minds of anyone who has ever had a bad roommate.

Winter Sounds give us chills

The longer a band takes to set up and the more instruments they have the more pretentious and difficult to relate to they will be. At least, this was what I thought before Friday night. Der Rath has hosted some interesting bands, but none that have roped me in as much as the Winter Sounds.

From literature to Twitterature

Alex Aciman was 19 when he took a leap of faith and bet on Twitter’s ability to satirize his favorite literary classics (as well as Twilight and some others)in bursts of 140 characters.
