Episode 36: Drop that Oscar Like It’s Hot

We’re back after a long hiatus! As such, we talk about politics a little bit, the #idesofTrump postcard campaign, some of the Oscar winning movies, the Oscar ceremony itself, and the animated movie category in detail.

Must See: “National Anthem”- Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey has done it: she has secured her legacy as one of pop’s most daring provocateurs–and this is her first (official) album. Not unlike like Lady Gaga, Del Rey has set in motion her own zeitgeist moment by re-imagining others; and it comes as no surprise to any of you that both are making quite the career of it. The 7:40 minute-long music video for Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem” is epic in scale and style. While the song itself is campy (Lana sounds a bit like Gwen Stefani as she purrs over a rather simple beat and … Continue reading Must See: “National Anthem”- Lana Del Rey

Women’s History Month Spotlight: Barbara Mikulski

(Image via the Senator’s website)   While many think History is simply the retelling of the things that happened to rich old dead white men often by old white men (and sometimes it can be–see: Newt Gingrich and Glenn Beck) it isn’t just that. After all, things that happened in the past are only a blink and a click away.   As a former History major (who has long since graduated) I think we have a responsibility to make sure that what is being remembered, recounted and recalled (especially in text–hello: Texas and Arizona) is inclusive of many perspectives, representative … Continue reading Women’s History Month Spotlight: Barbara Mikulski
