Demystifying the stigmatic ‘gamer’ tag

Let’s play a game. Imagine I walk up to you, a typical 20-year-old college student, and introduce myself. Moving past the niceties of introductions you inquire what my interests are. “I’m a gamer,” I reply casually. How do you respond? Do you think of me as childish? The word “gamer” has acquired a vile connotation in most people’s vernacular nowadays. I hate being embarrassed to associate myself with my passion.

Taking a dig at Pitchfork’s wordy reviews

Every so often, when I’m bored and find myself crawling through the Internet looking up music reviews, I end up on Pitchfork. Pitchfork doesn’t really cover the genres of music I typically listen to; however, sometimes I attempt to broaden my horizons and saunter over to their website to see how they feel about a particular album.

Novelists not confined to book pages

The other day I learned “The Counselor,” a movie I had no velleity to go see, was written by Cormac McCarthy. Not adapted from a work by McCarthy, the way “No Country for Old Men” was to great gravitas, or as some hope to do with “Blood Meridian.” This was an original screenplay, McCarthy’s first apparently.

The Nintendo Gamecube will rise again

There’s an old Japanese saying that translates roughly to: “Mario Kart Double Dash!!’ is the eighth wonder of the world.” I can’t attribute that prophetic claim to anyone specifically, but I’m assuming it was some revered Shogun. The phrase’s meaning is beyond dispute however; “Double Dash!!” will forever rule the “Mario Kart” roost.

Music plays a loud role in film

So I saw “12 Years a Slave,” and it was remarkable. You should all see it. It’s beautifully shot and acted, it’s an incredible story, or at least I wish it was incredible, and it’s told as well as any other.

Column: The current BCS rankings could crumble after this week

After recovering from the seemingly boring slate of games that plagued college football in week 10, week 11 is on the way to tantalize you with multiple top 10 matchups and a possible scenario that would spill chaos across the Bowl Championship Series, like Mt. Vesuvius raining fire down on the unsuspecting villagers of Pompeii.

Spontaniety, like gold in ore

Any good instructor will tell you that all writing is born out of planning. It’s a skill every one of your TAs in English class is trying to drill into you right now. And, while planning ahead or mapping out processes are skills that have broad applications, they are particularly pertinent to the practice of writing.
