Candlepin bowling: mastering the New England art

Last weekend marked my first venture in candlepin bowling. My friends and I originally found out about candlepin bowling when we wanted to go bowling for my birthday. Upon arriving at Sacco’s Bowl Haven in Somerville, we were appalled to notice that, not only was there a pretty fancy looking restaurant attached to the bowling […]

Self-released ‘Evilution’ lacks intelligent design

If you had told me yesterday that I would be writing an article about First Born for this week’s paper, I wouldn’t have argued with you. I wouldn’t have scoffed and I wouldn’t even have said you were crazy. I would have simply asked, “What on earth is First Born?” I was introduced to the […]

Newborn ‘Up All Night’ formulaic but promising

Newborn babies are rife with comedic possibilities. Don’t believe me? Just think about the many TV shows and films that have gotten laughs at the expense of messy diapers and frazzled parents. Granted, many of them aren’t actually worth watching, but the new NBC sitcom “Up All Night,” which explores similar territory, actually manages to […]

‘The Playboy Club’ playful but pedestrian

There are a lot of new shows this fall and most of them seem perfunctorily mediocre. So I wasn’t expecting gold when I stumbled across NBC’s new series “The Playboy Club.” And I didn’t get gold, so no dashed hopes. What I did get was a fun, entertaining hour. It is not the best show […]

View From the Top: Sports fan reflects on Brandeis bucket list

I never thought I would write for a newspaper. My friends are probably laughing right now. But I was recently asked, extremely politely, to write an article about myself (since I am such an interesting person) and my senior year experience at Brandeis. If you know me at all, you know that I am my […]

Shortage of candidates a sign of wasted potential

We believe the Student Union can have a lasting and measurable impact on campus if properly staffed. Several union positions have remained vacant for multiple elections. This apathy for filling these positions is simply a symptom of a much larger problem. Over the past few years, the Union has been filled by too many members […]

In wake of film, revisiting the novel ‘One Day’

In the last month, the movie “One Day” came and went, quickly fading at the box office despite being based on a bestselling book. Published in 2009 by author David Nicholls, the novel became an international bestseller, topping the charts three times.On the other hand, the film—directed by Lone Scherfig, best known for 2009’s “An […]

Lee Russo ’13 lifts men’s soccer past MIT

The Brandeis men’s soccer team continued their early season excellence in a 2-0 victory against the visiting MIT Engineers. The game marked the fourth time in the first five games that Brandeis goalie Blake Minchoff ’13 has recorded a shutout. With the win, the Judges improved to 4-1 on the season, while the Engineers fell […]

Volleyball goes 1-2 over week; win streak snapped at five

The weekend looked to be another great one for the women’s tennis team. Before any matches on Saturday the team had a four-game winning streak that included three shutouts. After a win against Emmanuel College, the Judges ended the day on the wrong side of a 3-2 match against Colby-Sawyer College. The Judges’ slide continued […]

Students stand united with concerned citizens

Starting on Sept. 17 and continuing on even through today, American citizens from across the nation, have flooded into the financial district in Lower Manhattan to participate in a somewhat mysterious event titled Occupy Wall Street. This protest—modeled after past demonstrations in global cities, such as Cairo, Barcelona and Athens—sought to unite the American public […]
