Mxmtoon’s album Rising releases just in time for summer

Mxmtoon’s newest album, “rising”, is all about growing up and the pain that comes with it. She tackles nostalgia, “growing pains” and even dancing around your room singing along to your favorite song. The album is a great juxtaposition of childhood whimsy and bittersweet thoughtfulness.

Review of Kilo Kish’s newest album, American Gurl

American Gurl may be Kilo Kish’s third album and the first time I heard of her, but she has been in the music scene for years, collaborating with artists like Gorillaz and Childish Gambino. Actually, I might not have recognized her solo work at all if Spotify’s algorithm hadn’t recommended her album to me, and I took a listen on a whim.

Letter from the editor | May 20

“Great work on your projects everyone! Let’s share your work with the class.” You spend the next few minutes pretending to be a good sport as the critiques come in, but all you want to do is run out of the room. You finally get to sit back down in your seat, but the overwhelming anxiety lingers. You now have to watch your peers present work that is bound to be better, bound to put yours to shame. Anyone that could relate, congrats! You might be suffering from Imposter Syndrome.

If you’ve stumbled upon my Instagram stories, you’ve probably noticed I excessively post about Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. Okay, “excessively” is somewhat of an exaggeration, but what isn’t an exaggeration is my love for this century’s queen of pop.

Barefoot is better

What dogs, you ask? Yes. I’m talking about feet. Oh, I’ve heard it all before. “You gonna charge for that?” “Put those dogs back where they belong!” And still, despite the backlash, I’d choose to roam barefoot over wearing a pair of sad old Converse any day.


Fairhaven Tunnel Graffiti - 1 of 4
Opinion

Vandalism or art?

A short, low tunnel surrounded by greenery welcomes you to Fairhaven College and its dorms. Its walls painted with layers and layers of gray paint from years of battling graffiti.  Visitors often see spray-painted or sharpied images and words on the walls. The graffiti is usually covered up the next day, but artist retaliation is consistent.

Review of Bronco by Orville Peck

Orville Peck, the king of the cowboy masquerade, is back with another incredible album. Bronco, released April 8, 2022, is one of the best albums released in the past year. Every time I play it, my friends roll their eyes. “It’s country music,” they say.

Letter from the editor | April 13

The Interdisciplinary Science Building, the newest of Western Washington University’s academic structures, is a modern building in every sense of the word. From its sleek angles to vibrant open spaces, it is the optimal building for academic pursuits. But the real modern treasure of the building is none other than the bathrooms.
