November 8, 2019

This weekend I was feeling a bit hungry. As I sat in my room an idea popped into my head, why don’t I go get some Taco Bell? I hopped in my car and drove over to the Taco Bell on Pendleton Pike. Here is my review of the experience I had during that trip. When I got in the drive-thru I was greeted b...

November 1, 2019

In late August, Amazon dropped a new original series called “Carnival Row” available to Amazon Prime users to stream. I saw ads for it on Orlando Bloom’s Instagram, and when I saw he was the one starring in the new Amazon original, I was immediately hooked.  “Carnival Row” takes place in a neo-noir po...

American “boyband” Brockhampton has released their 5th studio album “Ginger.” A year after they kicked out founding member Ameer Vann, and the release of their 4th studio album “Iridescence,” Brockhampton has been quiet. That is until a video announcing that “Ginger,” would be coming i...

Flower Boy Album Review

Gabe Thomas, Staff Writer

September 5, 2019

    Once in a lifetime, an artist releases an album that changes the way they are looked at by the mass media. The biggest example of this is Tyler, The Creator’s 2017 Album, Flower Boy.  The album starts off with one of my favorite tracks, “Foreword:” where Tyler raps about his fears of deat...

“Birds of Passage”: a quality review

Grant Hess, MVC Staff Reporter

May 21, 2019

“Birds of Passage” is an indie film featuring a diverse cast of colorful characters. The film centers around the Wayuu community in central Mexico and their adventure into the drug market. The film is definitely a foreign film, with no English at all. All dialogue is in Spanish instead. While th...

Recently, I got the chance to try the limited edition “Game of Thrones” Oreos. I was surprised by how detailed they really were. The Oreos were decorated on top with The Night’s Watch and three of the biggest houses in the show: House Lannister, House Targaryen, and House Stark. They were all ...

The Fruit Chronicles: coconut

Cameron Baker, MVC Staff Reporter

May 14, 2019

Have you ever heard of cocoa, before? Well, let me be the first to tell you, that if you slap nut at the end of cocoa, it creates a wondrous combination of fruit, nut, and seed. These are commonly referred to as drupes. The coconut is a rare tropical oddity, but that cannot stop me from reviewing it. F...
