If one thing is certain when it comes to the arts community at Hopkins, it is each artist’s individual passion. Whether it’s the many theater groups, orchestras or underground coalitions of rock-loving musicians, the arts of our lady Homewood are alive and well. But is this hidden culture that courses through the student body recognized as much as it should be?
As the semester comes to a close, you might find yourself with more free time on your hands than you anticipated. In these situations, left stranded without overly intensive problem sets and an endless array of convoluted chapters to skim over, art can be a shining light or a playful tool of distraction.
This past weekend, theater group the Barnstormers presented Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s musical Spring Awakening, a modern classic based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind of the same name. The play is set in late-19th-century Germany and follows the sexual awakenings of teenage students in a strict Christian school.
After a two-hour delay caused by a thunderstorm, the men’s lacrosse Homecoming game versus the Ohio State University Buckeyes got off to a rocky start. With rain still drizzling in the field, the first face-off resulted in a moving pile of bodies, ending with an Ohio State player pulling a Blue Jay down to the turf. No foul was called.
This past week, Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ), superstar wide receiver and former rival of the Baltimore Ravens, has found his way to a one-year deal in Charm City.
Held at the Glass Pavilion this past weekend, The Inter-Asian Cultural Expo (IACE), curated by Ryo Hasegawa, showcased both visual and performance art from Asian students across Homewood Campus, Peabody Institute and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Men’s lacrosse vs. Rutgers University
JPEGMAFIA is one of the most exciting rapper-producers in hip-hop. His breakout album Veteran, released in 2018, introduced a new sound imbued with the oddest samples imaginable, including ASMR of someone sucking on a lollipop, audio clips from Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Halo 5 sound effects.
The Lamar Jackson contract discussion has recently stooped down to the level of gossip at the high school lunch table. It’s never a pretty sight when your franchise quarterback is put on an exclusive tag — which the Baltimore Ravens enacted on March 7 — but it’s an even worse look when your franchise quarterback has to get on Twitter to dispel falsely reported contract numbers.
Men’s Lacrosse vs. St. Joseph’s University — March 4th
With men’s lacrosse at 2–2 going into their match against the University of Utah on Feb. 25, the team’s main worry was a continued losing streak. The team’s previous wins against Jacksonville University and the highly favored Georgetown University had set an optimistic tone for the season to come. However, after beatdowns from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Loyola University Maryland, the University’s record for the season was suddenly .500.
On Feb. 24, the Los Angeles Rams released star linebacker Bobby Wagner, and many NFL insiders have reported that all-pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey will soon be traded. The cause of these moves is not public info — it is plausible both players were looking for another change after the Rams’ 5–12 season, a stark contrast with their Super Bowl run just one season before. Most likely, however, both of these moves are tied to the Rams’ cap space.
This Sunday, Feb. 12 at 6:30 PM, the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will head to Glendale, Arizona to face off in Super Bowl LVII. While the Chiefs last played in the Super Bowl in 2021, this is the Eagles’ first visit to the Super Bowl in five years.
When the GRAMMYs revealed their list of nominations for the 2023 awards, I immediately scrolled to the category “Best Rap Album of the Year.” Not because I hold the award in great regard but quite the opposite — the GRAMMYs have a vile history of botching the awards for rap/hip-hop artists, showing a partial disregard and ignorance for their culture.
Now that we’re a bit past the halfway point of the 2022 National Football League (NFL) regular season, the players’ statistics have been somewhat cemented. Things in the NFL change rapidly from game to game, but the sample size of touches has reached a point where the consistent players are on top and likely will continue to dominate. It’s a very close year in pretty much every position, and records for overall teams have been far from what was expected since game one.
If you’re a fan of the Washington Commanders, you probably hate Dan Snyder. If you are a human with a proclivity for human decency, chances are you too will hate the Commanders’ owner after reading this article.
There has never been a closer focus on preventing injuries in the National Football League (NFL). From preventative penalties to independent certified athletic trainers (ATC spotters), the league has made it their priority and practically their mission statement to catch injuries as fast as possible, stop the game and get the player off the field. This was not the case this past week.
As a Ravens fan, Sept. 18 hurt.
