In the beautiful countryside of Mexico, there once lived a gorgeous woman named Maria. She fell for a rich ranchero, married the man she loved and had two wonderful kids. Following a rough patch in their marriage where her husband placed more attention on his children than his wife, Maria witnessed her husband in the arms of a younger beauty. In an fit of furious revenge, Maria drowned her two sons in a nearby river. After she came to her senses and realized the extent of her actions, she threw herself into those very same waters. That night, villagers saw a figure sobbing along the banks of the river, wearing Maria’s burial clothes and crying for the loss of her children. Today, the weeping woman is said to comb the earth in search of misbehaving children, luring them to bodies of water after dark to punish them for their misdeeds.

Australian band King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard made 2017 their year. The band put out five records throughout the year, with only a couple months in between each: Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, Sketches of Brunswick East, Polygondwanaland and Gumboot Soup. The five records added up to a total of 13 albums in their entire discography since 2012, making for an incredible work ethic. In 2018, however, the band took a much-needed break, letting the five records sink in with the fans to decipher where they fit in the “Gizzverse”.
Neotheater, the third full-length album from AJR, provides its audience with equal doses of grand symphonic energy and lyrical introspective dread. Like their other albums, the themes focus on self-reflection, but Neotheater revolves mainly around growing up and going through the trials and tribulations of young adulthood. They’ve outdone themselves yet again with their signature beats, unconventional themes, and hard-hitting lyrics. This album is light-hearted in its sound and heavy in its meaning. It’s pleasing not only to ears but also to the maturing conscious, as the music helps us dance through the troubles many of us are facing as we get older.
I consider myself a pretty strong woman when it comes to handling depictions of violence in movies and TV. I’m generally unphased by most graphic imagery in media and even enjoy myself a good bloody action romp now and again. However, very few things are able to make me cringe as much as the Metallica fight in Jojo. Even as someone who isn’t very squeamish, I found the fight very difficult to stomach when I first read Part 5 three years ago to the point where I had to look away from the artwork just to finish reading the chapter. In spite of that, the fight is still a fun romp that gives a spotlight to the mysterious boss and his alternate persona Doppio.
For the past few years, it has become more and more obvious that Lizzo has what it takes to become a star. Not only has she proven with songs like “Boys,” “Good As Hell,” and “Truth Hurts” that she has a knack for writing tracks just begging to blow up, but she brings the kind of larger-than-life personality. Both in and out of her music she has made it clear what makes an artist like Cardi B an absolute phenomenon.

Mat Kerekes’ new solo album is a perfect, early-summer release filled with simple but infectious melodies that function as flawless mood music for the upcoming season. The soft grunge, post-hardcore album, Ruby, is breathing with the spirit of young freedom. Ruby is a refreshing, feel-good creation, but it also captures a bit of audio-induced nostalgia if you were really into the culture that allowed punk rock to thrive.
From book to film to remade film, Pet Sematary has had an extensive life. Extensive, though, does not always mean good. The 2019 adaptation of Pet Sematary had some high points and fresh ideas, but for the most part, it was purely jump scares and blood spatter.
The connection between the Ball State and Muncie communities goes beyond proximity.

Mob Psycho 100 isn’t a normal anime by any standards. While it does show common anime tropes such as a high school setting and overpowered abilities, these are spun with unique characters. Mob demonstrates this through his submissive behaviors in the first season, despite the amount of power he possesses. However, the characters undergo massive changes within the narrative of the second season.
2018 was a somewhat disappointing year in anime for me. Despite finally giving me the Vento Aureo anime adaptation I’ve waited so long for, and offering plenty of cute comedy shows, there wasn’t really anything that blew me or the rest of the anime community away, especially when compared to 2017’s standout shows such as Made in Abyss and Land of the Lustrous. However, 2019 seems to be making up for this right out of the gate with The Promised Neverland, a 12-episode anime adaptation of the ongoing Shonen Jump manga of the same name.

Of the original Disney animated features, no one is more infamous (or remembered, period) than Dumbo. Released in 1941, it tells the story of Dumbo, a baby elephant whose ridiculously large ears lead to him getting separated from his mother, belittled and shamed by everyone in the circus he lives in, and ultimately help him literally soar above the adversity in his life.

Following his first Academy Award winning film, Get Out, Jordan Peele broke box office records with Us, his second stroke of creative genius. Although Us reached nearly 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, some professional and fan-based critics have expressed disapproval regarding its label as a horror film. This film, like his last one, embodies a terrifying, disturbing nature that would fit better into a category of corrupt psychological thrillers. I, like many others, am a huge fan of both movies because of this; it’s a very out of the ordinary subgenre of horror. Peele’s imagination generated another perfectly original plotline, and the range of effects he used throughout the movie shows off his great storytelling ability.
