Loud and Clear: The in-betweener

When I studied abroad last summer, I took a class on Japanese animation. In this class, we learned about the different roles animators play, and one key role stood out to me: the in-betweeners.

Loud and Clear: Temporarily 21

When Forever 21 announced it was filing for bankruptcy, my immediate thought was, “Well, I guess they were only Temporarily 21.” After I laughed at my own joke, however, I realized just how hard it was going to be for me to buy clothes from here on out.

Loud and Clear: Hellfire

Like fire. Hellfire.”  These lyrics from the song “Hellfire,” from the movie “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” scorched into my brain the moment I found out the Notre Dame in Paris, France was burning.
