“There are no two words in the English language more harmful
than good job.” This phrase is spoken toward the end of “Whiplash” by the intense
music teacher Terence Fletcher, and I can’t think of a better way to capture
the feeling of what has transpired.

Bob McDonald, the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs, announced a large restructuring of his agency this week on the eve of Veterans Day.
“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.
“Birdman” encapsulates the very best of what cinema can do — the film is a breathless whirlwind through one man’s quest to achieve artistic relevance. Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thomson, an aging actor trying to escape the shadow of his former superhero persona. He attempts to do this by writing, directing and starring in a Broadway stage production of Raymond Chandler’s short story, “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.”
There had to be a drop off at some point, right? Unfortunately, this week was a bit of a letdown after stellar previous episodes. I’m giving it 3 out of 5 stars. WARNING: There are full spoilers for this week's episode below.

"Basetrack Live" is an interactive multimedia experience, created and performed by the dedicated group of artists from the En Garde Arts theater company and the corpsmen from the 1st Battalion, 8th Marines. I was lucky enough to catch the Oct. 22 performance at the Modlin Center for the Arts at University of Richmond. I have seen a great number of films and TV shows that deal directly with the effects of war, from "Full Metal Jacket" to "Band of Brothers." The majority of these productions focus primarily on the soldiers' perspectives on training, deployment, combat and re-integration back into society. Obviously the soldier’s perspective is crucial in understanding the overarching ramifications of war, but solely focusing on this aspect can only give you part of the picture. "Basetrack Live" attempts to correct this oversight in many ways.
In their 1990 hit song, “Let’s Talk About Sex,” classic rap duo Salt-N-Pepa implored hip hop fans and others to openly discuss a topic that many people go to great lengths to avoid. And though we live in a country in which the presence of sex is virtually unavoidable, it appears that only now, in 2014, we are finally ready to have "the talk." Unfortunately, as is the case with many important conversations, our nation’s sex talk comes on the heels of tragedy.

This past summer, I volunteered to drive a group of middle-schoolers to a trampoline gym on a church-sponsored outing. Before departing with five seventh-grade girls and one eighth-grade boy, I recalled my own prepubescent crew of comrades. I remembered our incessant shenanigans and relentless jockeying for female attention, and began to question my original motivation to volunteer.
