“It’s the end of the path I started us on.” Those are the words we hear Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) say to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Avengers: Age of Ultron after Ultron and the Maximoff twins manage to defeat the team in their first encounter.
Craig Hankin enrolled at Hopkins as a pre-med undergraduate in 1972. That first semester, he bombed his chemistry and calculus midterms and switched his major to History of Art.
Witness Theater presented their spring showcase in Arellano Theater on Thursday, April 26, and Friday, April 27. The show, produced by junior Sarah Linton, featured five 10-minute student-written, student-directed plays.
This past weekend, students of the Theatre Arts and Studies program performed Betrayal, a play by Harold Pinter that explores the dynamics of an affair, in the John Astin Theatre.
I’d like to preface this article by saying that I am an incredibly privileged person who was lucky to have the means and opportunity to pursue a college education. Many people do not get the same chances I got, and I realize that they might be happy to be in my position. But with that said, college was fucking miserable. Of course misery is relative, but I think I pretty much bottomed out around a half a dozen times over the last four years.
I have long thought that Post Malone was underrated. His first song, “White Iverson,” blew up and he was almost universally considered a one hit wonder. But he kept making hits. He quickly built up a loyal fanbase. His first album — Stoney — was a great project. Each song on that album does something different and fun. Post found a way to do the thing that rappers had been trying to do for years: combine the country and rock aesthetic with hip hop.
If you were anything like me in high school, then you were probably excited for the release of Marvel’s The Avengers. The Avengers debuted in 2012, just as we current college seniors were finishing up our sophomore year of high school. It was the first time we as an audience saw an ensemble movie full of superheroes that we’d been engaged with from as early as 2008, when Iron Man first released.
The Spring Fair concert was destined to be a failure. The artist reveal disappointed people, and there were rumors of a heavy underselling of tickets. All around campus you could feel this general disinterest. Days before the concert, tickets were being sold for less than half of the original value.
Last week, I attended a screening of short films at the 21st Hopkins Film Festival. Its overarching theme was prom, and it took place at the JHU-Mica Film Centre. Not knowing what to expect before the screening, I was surprised at how many different emotions the films provoked.
On Tuesday, April 17 the Office of LGBTQ Life hosted a Queer Comedy Night at the LaB, where Hopkins students took to the stage and cracked jokes about the myriad wonders and intricacies of being queer in the modern world.
Free staged readings of We All Fall Down, by Esther Rodriguez, were performed on April 21 and 22 at the Arellano Theater in Levering Hall. The Hub event page provides a short blurb of the plot of the play: “Six months after Amanda Lewis-Ramirez’s suicide attempt, she and her family must redefine their relationships with each other in light of the secrets they’ve been keeping.”
My friend, who is not only a self-described legend but perhaps the Freud of our time, spent late Monday evening proselytizing about his new classification of emotions. Although psychologist Paul Ekman, after seminal cross-cultural research, identified anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise as the six basic human emotions, my friend argued that there are “only two: anger and content.”
If you have a past, present or future in theater, you have heard of Samuel Beckett’s famous Waiting for Godot.
Terrance Hayes, nationally-acclaimed poet and artist, read from his works and answered questions from on April 10 from 6-7 p.m. The event, which took place in Mudd 26, was part of the Turnbull Lecture Series.
Not unlike the enchanting Amelia Isaacs, who, though “very allergic to dairy,” covered a cake competition (the Sheridan Libraries’ fifth annual Edible Book Festival) for this section, I covered a conversation of Black Panther despite having never seen the film. Don’t get me wrong — I have not purposely avoided the highest-grossing film of 2018 for fear of ideological anaphylaxis. I really wish I had seen it, one reason being that doing so might have allowed me to appreciate this event even more.
The African Students Association (ASA) held Flavors of Africa: A Fashion Show, on the evening of Friday, April 13. Showcasing Maryland designers representing countries from across the African continent, the fashion show filled the Glass Pavilion with students eager to see their friends walk the runway in African-inspired clothing.
I think I speak for every vegetarian and vegan when I say I am not vegetarian or vegan.
Joaquin Phoenix has somehow not become a mainstream name. What I mean by this is that your average movie-goer probably couldn’t pick him out from a collection of headshots. As one of the best actors of his generation, it’s truly a travesty that he hasn’t won an Oscar for any performance despite being nominated three times and winning a Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media for Walk the Line.
Cardi B’s first full-length studio album Invasion of Privacy had been out for a week when it reached number one on the Billboard 200 albums list and became the most-streamed album by a female performing artist on Apple Music.
