This is a World War II movie based on a “real account” of the battle of Midway (according to the beginning credits). As always, there will probably be spoilers ahead.

First off, "Radium Girls" was performed at the Atlantic High School last weekend. The three shows were directed by English teachers Alex Bales and Emma Bireline.

No Jokes About It: A “Joker” Review

Grace Clay, Editor

October 17, 2019

A couple weeks ago, Warner Bros. released the latest DC Comics movie about the most infamous Batman villain, Joker. This movie is not for the faint at heart, nor is it for the faint stomach. It's rated R, and that's for good reason, folks. I would not recommend this movie for your 2 year olds, or probably ...

Hana Holtz, Editor

October 2, 2019

I am one of the many who have a Netflix account. I also am one of those who don’t use it as often as I should, especially because of the double-digit number that follows the dollar sign attached to the monthly usage fee, even if you don’t watch one minute of one show. And finally, when I do use it, ...

May 29, 2019

The first decade of the 21st Century has probably been the best one so far. I’m not just saying that because it’s when I was brought into this world, I’m saying that because it was the least stressful decade of my life. Kidding… sort of. I do miss it because it was a million times easier (I...

My Top Ten Songs of the 1990s

Grace Clay, Editor

April 25, 2019

The '90s were full of crop tops and computers. It was the decade of classic sitcoms such as “FRIENDS,” “Seinfeld,” and “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” It was also the decade of hip hop, my mom’s personal favorite genre (although she rarely ever listens to it). Although, hip hop had rode to f...

I am usually not a podcast person but I heard an advertisement for “DISGRACELAND” (a rock n’ roll true crime podcast) on my favorite radio station, 101.9 The Keg. I decided I should check it out because it combines two of my absolute favorite things: true crime, and rock n’ roll. Almost ...
