Wakanda is not a real country. But what’s important is that it could have been, which is one of the core messages behind Black Panther that makes the film so poignant, especially at this moment in history. In the film, the fictional country features an amalgam of African cultures and traditions, with Wakanda representing what might have been in the absence of the violence of colonization.

Only the top six teams will be competing for that big win and a chance to represent North America at the Mid-Season Invitational and I don’t think every team has a chance to get there.
'Always Ascending' is a fresh take on Franz Ferdinand’s more pop roots. While there aren’t any standout hits, each song provides a unique emotional experience for each listener. This is due to the unique mesmerizing and powerful use of the beat. For old fans and new, the band has created a new image that is set to satisfy.
Episode 5 is by far the most difficult to follow due to its frequent flashbacks and flashforwards. The emotion that is felt is incredible and genuinely touching. Andrew’s love for David is put into perspective and so is the anti-LGBT discrimination in the military during this time period. This episode isn’t as engaging as previous episodes, but leaves you with an emotional attachment to Jeff and his family.
MGMT has recovered incredibly well from the muddled experimentation of their third album. ‘Little Dark Age’ sees the band returning to the hook-dominated landscape of ‘Oracular Spectacular’ and ‘Congratulations’, while also keeping the unique flourishes that defined their self-titled record. Though it is not entirely original in its psychedelic pop sound, its smart humor and tasteful melodies more than make up for any reckless borrowing. It takes all of the best parts of MGMT’s past releases and blends them together to bring forth an intense, whimsical new era for the band.
Overall, Black Panther succeeds as an excellent entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It delivers on being an action adventure film, a political statement, and a celebration of African culture. While the film does start off a bit stagnant, the cast’s performances and emotional themes keep the film on the path in becoming an entertaining ride.
The film is incredibly upfront in detailing the misrepresentation of African Americans by white artists and doesn’t shy away from showing the negative impacts of these depictions.
This year, as the pink candy was discounted and the little red hearts went back in storage, the clouds parted and Frank Ocean descended with a rich, moody song to balm hearts overwhelmed by love found, love lost, and love never reciprocated.
To begin, we’re going to keep this letter brief. In it, we’re going to explain who we are, what we stand for, and what we hope to accomplish.
In the coming days, Ball State students will begin voting for the 2018 Student Government Association’s executive slate. On their ballots, they have two options — to vote for or against this year’s only campaigning slate, Amplify.
Black Panther was everything promised from the trailers and the reviews. Through visuals, character development and deeper storytelling, this movie gives people a chance to take a closer look at American society.
The problem is that Nanook of the North was created before documentary ethics were established.
I’d also like to issue an apology on behalf of anyone who bet on the teams that were expected to win, because no one could be expected to predict the absolute madness week four brought us.
I never thought much of guns when I was younger. The closest I've ever come to holding a gun was mindlessly playing Duck Hunt with a laser zapper (or whatever it was supposed to be) on my NES.
This year was Ball State Dance Marathon’s 11th year of fundraising “For The Kids” at Riley Hospital for children and happened to be my second year of fundraising as a member of the Hospitality committee.
I feel sickness in my stomach every time something romantic shows up on my social media. However, that’s my own personal experiences, and I’m on a rather extreme end of the spectrum.
While Valentines Day may be a gimmicky Hallmark holiday, meme lovers take it and make it their own every year. Using pop culture references as well as other memes, they create poorly edited virtual valentines.
So the main enemies to Pornhub’s average traffic are Super Bowls, Game of Thrones, fake missile threats, political scandals, international music festivals, and, I’m not making this up, Valentine’s Day.
Episode four is fantastic and provides an excellent depiction of aloneness and isolation. Andrew is truly alone in the world and his one chance at love is lost because of his brutality. The violence gives a taste of horror that is familiar from Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. The flashbacks give a great perspective on David’s childhood and life story. Unfortunately, Andrew’s killing spree is not over.
Overall, this is a clear improvement from episode one. Not only did David Letterman interview more people, the conversations were more unique and unexplored. Clooney’s personality bounces off of Letterman’s wittiness quite well and provides information through entertainment. Furthermore, there were also more current events to provide fresh air over the sheer amount of history.
