In 1965, the Hopkins Hospital became the first academic institution in the United States to perform sex reassignment surgeries. Now also known by names like genital reconstruction surgery and sex realignment surgery, the procedures were perceived as radical and attracted attention from The New York Times and tabloids alike. But they were conducted for experimental, not political, reasons. Regardless, as the first place in the country where doctors and researchers could go to learn about sex reassignment surgery, Hopkins became the model for other institutions. But in 1979, Hopkins stopped performing the surgeries and never resumed.
I'm the type of person who has an incessant need to know about anything and everything that’s happening in the world. I constantly read the news and listen to new music releases and attempt to stay as up to date on pop culture as possible. This means that I also try to watch as much T.V. as I can. When I tell people that I’m currently watching 13 shows/week with 19 total shows that I watch throughout the year (not counting Netflix or shows I’m trying to catch up on) they’re usually shocked. I promise that I have a life outside of watching T.V. (well, most of the time).
Over 700 students came to Shriver Hall last night for the Foreign Affairs Symposium (FAS)’s second event, hosting Jocelyn Richard, a features editor at the The Onion. The event was co-sponsored by The HOP as a part of their goal to provide more free events for students.
Ever since Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” produced by Patrice Wilson, came out, it’s been perfectly acceptable to make fun of anything and everything he produces. All of his videos are terrible, autotuned and feature 12-year-old girls who, especially in the wake of pop culture’s obsession with Black, have at least some understanding that they’re going to get their 15 minutes of fame, but they’re also going to get ridiculed. Their parents must know this too, but they seem to be totally fine with shelling out the money so their children can follow their dreams and get famous.
“We just snuck up in there,” Steep Canyon Rangers lead singer Woody Platt modestly told the crowd at Rams Head Live last Friday night. It took a second to realize that he was talking about how he felt when the band won a Grammy for Best Bluegrass album. The North Carolina-based bluegrass band, known for its banjo and fiddle arrangements and performances with actor and comedian Steve Martin, was in Baltimore as part its tour to promote a new album, Tell The Ones I Love.
I don’t know about you all, but I’ve spent an entire month questioning why on Earth Alison Gold was so obsessed with fake Chinese food. Now, Patrice Wilson has finally blessed us with an answer: Alison Gold’s new prequel to “Chinese Food” called “ABCDEFG.” Yes, she did go clubbing before she ate that Chinese food. She actually had a legitimate reason for kicking over that trash can because she had to trick a guy into falling in love with her before accidentally eating him. Plus some weird puppeteer convinced her to get into a truck. Clearly Gold has some issues to work out. So that pretty much validates the entirety of “Chinese Food,” even the parts where Gold gets high off chow-moo-moo-moo-moo mein and hangs out with a pedophile panda in a park.
Books defined my childhood. I was that kid who checked out at least 15 library books every other week, sat in my room and devoured them. I read almost everything, but there were a few novels wherein I completely lost myself in the story. These main characters (let’s be real, they were mostly girls), were the type of people that I wanted to be when I grew up. Many may have turned to fantasy novels to escape the real world, but for me, it was the Judy Blume-esque writers who depicted real girls with real problems. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s 28-book long series about the refreshingly normal but oh-so-awkward Alice McKinley fits that bill perfectly. Reynolds recently published her last Alice book, Now I’ll Tell You Everything.
Katy Perry is known for her spunky pop, sugary dance beats showcasing her girl-power, lyrics peppered with sexual innuendos. Her latest album, PRISM, continues that theme, but also illuminates her new, grown-up vulnerability.
He’s baaaack. After teaching the American public that both Friday and Thanksgiving are really, really awesome, singer and songwriter Patrice Wilson has now brought us a song, performed by Alison Gold, that’s all about Chinese food! Cue the gaggle of tweens listing things that they like about Friday/Thanksgiving/Chinese food and having parties about Friday/Thanksgiving/Chinese food. Enter Patrice Wilson in a weird costume as he randomly hangs out with these girls without their parents there.
Bangerz, Miley Cyrus’s fourth album, was released on Tuesday after months of anticipation that began after she released “We Can’t Stop.” The over-the-top, inappropriate music video about Molly quickly made “We Can’t Stop” the song of the summer.
Firefly may have been the biggest music event on the East Coast this weekend, but that didn't stop Baltimoreans from heading to Rams Head Live to hear the lively soul pop band Fitz & the Tantrums. In fact, the crowd was impressive for a Sunday night in Baltimore.
"We chose a path that was our own," Metric lead singer Emily Haines told the crowd at Rams Head Live towards the end of their set last night, referencing both the group's unique sound and the unconventional way that they release their music.
Yesterday, music lovers flocked to Merriweather Post Pavilion for the third annual Sweetlife Festival. Sweetlife combines a variety of bands and sustainability for a long day full of good food and music.
If you’re 12-years-old and find remote members of your family on the Internet, I get that it’s pretty tempting to friend them on every aspect of social media that you have. But if those family members have no idea who you are, then you should probably think first before you act like a stalker.
This year’s main Spring Fair concert, Grouplove, along with openers Carolina Liar and Magic Man was surprisingly spectacular despite the performers’ relative obscurity among students and the low turnout.
Hopkins neuroscientist and neurosurgeon Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa will speak at graduation on Thursday, May 23.
If the Holocaust were simplified enough to explain it in a child’s tale, it could be described as good vs. evil. There’s no question as to who are the bad guys in this unfortunately true story. But as Jodi Picoult points out in her newest novel, The Storyteller, the Grimm brothers didn’t intend for fairy tales to be black and white, or even have happy endings. Sometimes, the bad guys, no matter how terrible they are, have consciences too.
Kappa Kappa Gamma will have social events this semester.
“We started out just wanting to get drunk and do drugs with each other and now we’re raising kids on this [music],” Stars lead singer Torquil Campbell shouted to the crowd at Rams Head Live last Thursday near the end of the band’s energy filled set. This quote emphasized how much of a family the band was. While they loved performing for the audience, they have been making music together for so long that they probably would have had just as much fun harmonizing and jamming out on their own.
Weekends should exist solely for the purpose of eating as much food as possible and then lying around comatose talking about how you’re never going to eat again.
