Five albums into their punk project dubbed The Goo Goo Dolls, John Rzeznik and Robby Takac broke through. “Name” was their first big hit, and left some fans complaining that they had gone too mainstream. One fan even sent Rzeznik a letter in 1998 that started “Dear F-----,” which, he told Guitar World, was not the first time he’d been called such an awful name.
This decade, Wilco’s frontman and songwriter, Jeff Tweedy, has released five albums with the band he started 25 years ago, taken time for solo projects and an album with his son, guest starred on Parks and Rec (in the fictional band Land Ho) and written a memoir released last November. And after all that, Tweedy and company released their 12th studio album, Ode to Joy, last month, his most essential work this decade.
Kanye West's latest album, Jesus Is King, was released last Friday to the tamest reception of any Kanye solo album to date. There have been fewer headlines, fewer conversations among casual rap fans and fewer tweets. People are finally taking Kanye less seriously, even as he turns his music toward the power of salvation.
"Remembering the Rockets" starts in the middle of a familiar cycle. “The cars come by your house / It’s Friday night again,” and just like that and with a denser wall of guitars than Strange Ranger has known before, they’ve baked “Leona” in a nostalgic haze.
Oso Oso’s one-man-show Jade Lilitri is singing about himself this time around.
Taylor Swift is having fun again on "Lover," and in a way that feels much more natural than "Reputation."
Brian King sauntered on stage Saturday night with only his drummer, David Prowse, aiding him. King and Prowse, members of the band Japandroids, charged into their lead single, “Near to the Wild Heart of Life,” and mid-verse, King hocked a loogie the size of a small bird that clung to an oversized amp for the entire show.
College students understand the delight that arises upon receiving a package from home. The idea that our parents have packed our favorite snacks and extra supplies — along with the fact that we will not have to go out and buy these items ourselves — cheers us up like nothing else.
It is hard to slip down the wet, tiled sidewalks of Taipei, Taiwan without eventually finding yourself perched on a plastic stool, dabbing garlic chili paste onto a fresh omelet.
Hurricane Harvey ravaged Houston just weeks ago, but for some it probably feels like months since the category 4 storm was in the public consciousness.
I’m no movie expert, but I know this much: When it comes to making a film about a national tragedy that robbed nearly 3,000 people of their lives, spawned wars, shaped both foreign and domestic policy for years and still looms as a vindictive colossus over the memories of millions, one must take special care.
When school let out for the summer last April, the first thing I did was drive to Barnes and Noble. For me, summer break is a three-month reading spree. I read about 15 books this summer, ranging from literary classics to fun novels for the beach. Here are six books reviews from my summer library.
Pig Roast officially begins at 12 p.m. this Saturday, but preparations for the event are already in progress. The university police department, school administration, student involvement groups and Spider athletics are all involved in the preparations.
The Princeton Review included University of Richmond in its list of "Colleges That Pay You Back: 2015 Edition" this week, making Richmond one of the 200 colleges or universities in this unranked category that is being recognized in terms of academic preparation, affordability and career opportunities.
Warning: Full spoilers for this week's episode below.
“Interstellar” is a new film from director Christopher Nolan starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain; a five-star movie in my opinion. The film is a crowning achievement in the sci-fi genre, but one that falls just short of masterpiece status. “Interstellar” deals with such gigantic ideas such as our place in the cosmos, while also contemplating the meaning of human life when our planet cannot sustain us anymore.
University of Richmond already has one rock star alumnus, Lumineers singer Wesley Schultz, but She's a Legend's Alex McDilda, Richmond College '14, and Camden Cantwell, RC '13, may not be far behind. The band's first album, "Flight Patterns and Fistfights," came out last month, and is available on iTunes, Spotify and the band's website.
“Gone Girl” is the new film from auteur director David Fincher. The movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne, a seemingly happy all-American couple living in the suburbs outside of St. Louis. Affleck gives the best performance of his career in this movie, as he is perfectly suited to play this role. Pike also gives a transformative performance in her breakthrough role as Amazing Amy. The movie is based on author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel of the same name.
The season premiere of “The Walking Dead” aired with a bang on Sunday night. After a long wait over the summer, it was exhilarating to return to our heroes as they faced yet another life-altering crisis. The major arc of the second half of the fourth season involved our group of survivors making their way toward the promise of sanctuary in Terminus, a place that had advertised itself as a safe haven from the calamity of the dead walking the earth. We were treated to a series of standalone episodes devoted to various members of the people who survived the battle with the governor at the prison. These episodes were meant to give us insight into who these people were as opposed to just fodder for the various living and dead enemies around. Some episodes were more successful than others, but on the whole they did a good job of building up to the season's end.
