Crime at its prime

            During my drive back to Middlebury this semester, I was introduced to My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. Driving through rural Vermont seemed the perfect setting for an artfully created true crime podcast. As I twisted through sharp turns in the mountains, the wind rushed through my open window while Karen… Read More

Black Lives Matter.

In the past week, we’ve watched a powerful uprising unfold across our nation. Although the recent protests were sparked by the recent cruel and unjust murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others, they are a response to the systemic racism that is intrinsic to this country’s history. Black Lives Matter. As a… Read More

Letter of Recommendation: Spotify Stalking

Many of you know the joys of Spotify stalking first-hand. This is my personal take on the widespread (I think) social phenomenon. I was quite resistant to Spotify, preferring to listen to iTunes and Youtube for far too long. Even, shamefully, Pandora radio. Once I finally made the plunge, I wanted to keep it private…. Read More

A couple months ago, my good friend Kate would not stop talking about Phoebe Bridgers. An indie/folk/rock-ish/really good musician from LA, Phoebe Bridgers was Kate’s favorite artist of the moment (and of all time, claims Kate). At the time, I was bouncing around listening to new kinds of music instead of my normal classic rock… Read More

When I decided to make a post about Tyler the Creator’s latest album, IGOR, I revisited the album and listened to it from start to finish multiple times throughout the week.
