We as humans are far from perfect, or so we've been told. Everybody makes mistakes, they say. Is it reasonable to assume all the things we’ve made through thousands of years of history aren't perfect, then?

But still, I feel it is also important to address that we view films through the lens of the filmmaker. What does that mean exactly? In this case, Olympia may not exactly be propaganda, but it does carry a piece of Riefenstahl in it. So we can't completely separate the art from the author; this is impossible because we are viewing the film through the lens of the director.
Recently I talked about Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will, and no, we still aren’t done with her yet. This time we are going to look at her less controversial and infinitely more interesting film: Olympia.
“It was like I was invalidated because I am a girl and ‘girls don’t play League,’ when most of the people I know are women that play League” Wilson said. “I decided to stop posting about things. I stopped engaging with other community members that I didn’t know personally.”
Back last October, I created a Facebook event dedicated to The Bean that went viral.
'The Strangers: Prey at Night' is a cookie-cutter slasher film that still manages to hold a decent amount of charm. Director Johannes Roberts seems to get lost in an aesthetic that only works about half the time, but makes up for it with compelling characters. While it loses the excitement and innovation that its predecessor 'The Strangers' has, it still manages to be an enjoyable watch.
“Dead or Alive Or” is the definition of a bad episode. Next to nothing happens to further the plot, God saves the gang far too many times to be believable in any sense of the word, none of the characters are likeable besides Dwight, and worst of all Eugene is still alive. Whether you call it fluff, padding, or filler, this episode has nothing up its sleeve and only serves to waste time.
When the voice in the Adele song is lowered, it sounds just like Sam Smith. Then, when the pitch of the Sam Smith song is raised, it sounds just like Adele.
'Into the Breach' is an amazing strategy game that manages to use its small scale to great effect. The missions are fast-paced, but the twist on the typical strategy game objectives means that a whole new world of completing missions is opened up. The music and aesthetic are appropriately fantastic for Subset Games and improves upon their previous work. And while long gaming sessions can be a detriment to the game’s quality, in short bursts this game is an amazing experience. Finally, the game creates a whole new world of empathy that I never expected from a game like this. For the price, it’s definitely worth the hours upon hours that can be dumped into this game.
'Annihilation' is a surreal yet excellent experience, with its strengths being excellent performances by the cast, beautiful visuals, and unnerving atmosphere. However, it is also not a movie for the average moviegoer and requires another viewing to get a better understanding of it. All in all, it is another success for Alex Garland.
Team Solomid, Team Liquid, and the surprise contender of Counter Logic Gaming are all still competing for those final two spots. Who will claim them? Which meme team will play spoiler?
The world’s largest ball of paint lies in the middle of the country, in Alexandria, IN, which is about a 30-minute drive from Ball State University. It’s a sight that I probably would’ve missed if I wasn’t looking for it.
Change requires action. Action can be perceived as many different things, from simply just discussing a topic with friends to writing to government officials.
If more people watch and learn from it, more people may be able to identify media that may have questionable motives. Leni Riefenstahl may be a great filmmaker, but that does not automatically excuse her poor morals in making the film.
Former Vandal is a musical duo out of Fort Wayne, comprised of Quinn Wentz (vocals) and Christian Delzoppo (drums). Currently, on Spotify they have more than 57,000 monthly listeners.
In fact, that is the exact purpose of this piece: to examine freedom of speech in the ever-changing media and political landscape, and whether or not YouTube can—and should—be allowed to make these decisions for their platform, at the expense of viewers and content creators alike.
We have grown up in an age where gun violence has taken away our sense of hope for the world and our ability to be at ease in class without fearing a person gunning down the door to take the lives of innocent people. I am worried for our future.
As the last few weeks shake out, there seem to be three tiers: the top two, the bottom two (or three), and then everyone else in the middle.
The most heartbreaking aspect of the film is the absolutely horrible treatment of the victims. Little was offered in the way of relief, and poor leadership let the city fall into chaos.
On April 20, 1999, two students entered Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado armed with assault rifles, plenty of ammunition, Molotov cocktails and two propane bombs set to go off at 11:17 a.m.
