Tunmise Fawole (C ’17) is someone you remember meeting—if not for her infectious smile, or the fact that she’s half your size but has twice your personality, then because you can be sure she’s going to say something you remember, and she won’t leave her seat at the table until she’s seen you take action.
Last fall, Andrea Pascual (W’17) walked out of Harrison high–rise to head to class for the day. All along Locust Walk were chalked pro–life messages. “Human equality starts in the womb,” one read outside Van Pelt in big block letters.
When I was little and my mom would tuck me in before I went to bed, we would talk about high points and low points, what I was thankful for that day and what I wanted to do better. Her closing words before turning off the lights were always, “be good and brave and strong and kind.”
Metal bars, exposed panels and chipped mirror frames contribute to the overall rustic aesthetic of this intimate American BYOB, which is suffused with candlelight and the soft glow from wire lamps. Offering a fantastic selection for this fall’s Restaurant Week, including a delicious watermelon gazpacho, flatiron steak and vegan medley, any diner is sure to find something to be excited about. I was especially pleased to find out that every dish was made with locally–grown produce like heirloom carrots from a Lancaster farm.
Spread the love, kids.

Go–to item: "This bracelet I made this past summer."
When I was younger, I spent Saturday nights snuggled up on the couch with my dad, trying to like whatever science fiction movie he had chosen to watch. I didn’t enjoy the nights he settled for the “Underworld” series, “Van Helsing” or the gory alien movies. But we found common ground with superheroes and some other tamer action adventure flicks. I never read any comic books. I didn’t watch the “Justice League” cartoons as a kid. I can really only trace my love for science fiction action movies to my dad. There still is a sense of familiarity when I walk into our family room to see “Batman Begins” screening on the TV.
Disclaimer: While I consider myself an
avid Batman fan, I have never actually read any of the comics. Any factual or
plot discrepancies that I take issue with in “Gotham” are based solely off of
my obsession with the Christopher Nolan “Dark Knight” trilogy and random things
I put the effort into looking up online.
Two years after “An Awesome Wave,” alt-J's back with a sophomore album, a slightly disjointed compilation of beautiful, experimental tracks. The beef of “This is All Yours”— sandwiched between three “Nara” songs that capitalize on the band’s raw instrumentals and unsettling sound—is dominated by the three previously released singles: “Every Other Freckle,” “Left Hand Free” and “Hunger of the Pine.” The black sheep of the family is “Garden of England,” which sounds like it was pulled from a Jane Austen book–to–film adaptation. Despite this, it demonstrates the diversity of sound alt–J creates, something that can still be said for their whole repertoire.
Disclaimer: I spent my Sunday watching the three different previews of this episode on CBS on repeat and teared up during all of them, so if that’s any indication of how this night is going to go, you’ll find me by the tissue box/not in my common room because I can NOT handle people doing their CIS homework when legendary things are taking place on screen.
“AFTER THE DISCO”
The Los Angeles–based Haim sisters burst onto the music scene during the summer of 2012 with danceable singles “Falling” and “Forever” that were ripe and ready for alternative radio play. The band’s first full–length album, “Days Are Gone,” opens up exactly the same way, but now leads into an impeccably curated 11–track list of sun–kissed, retro–inspired songs. From the 80s pop influence in the title track to the heavier rock feel of “My Song 5,” Haim showcases their versatility while staying true to their previously developed aesthetic. Danielle, Este and Alana, along with drummer Dash Hutton, gained traction in the music scene following their first EP, and the attention that “Days Are Gone” will garner is much deserved given its pristinely polished, consistently catchy material.
