There are many aspects of 6ix9ine’s music that work for a very niche audience. Unfortunately, that fact is proven time and time again when listening to his first studio album and its lack of strong originality. If this happens to be the last we hear of 6ix9ine in the foreseeable future, DUMMY BOY is not the caliber of work he should be remembered by.
Earl Sweatshirt has created an original tragedy with 'Some Rap Songs.' The instrumentals establish tones that are complemented perfectly by the lyrics and samples. His performances and flows across the album make each song stand out on its own where not one song sounds the same on the record. Even though the record is 25 minutes, it feels full, making it an accomplishment in modern hip-hop.
“Sex Pistols Appears, Part 2” was one of the better episodes of 'Vento Aureo' with a good summarized backstory, an interesting battle pairing, and the most genuine connection to a character we have had all season.
Good morning. It’s going to get better. I repeat these phrases over and over. From the very moment I open my eyes all throughout the day until I close them once again.
This week, The Coven discusses the rise of misrepresentation in regards to individuals with mental illnesses. From horror films to villain characters misdiagnosed with these symptoms, we discuss these are actually like in reality. All of this and more on this week’s episode of The Coven.
The Ball State Daily News is launching its own website.
“Sex Pistols Appears, Part 1” is a delightfully entertaining episode that fleshes out one of its core cast members and delivers on comedy. While there are some mild pacing issues and Sex Pistols might be a recycled Stand idea from Stardust Crusaders, it doesn’t detract from the episode’s overall entertainment value, featuring some very creative dance animation and fun character dynamics.
Welcome back to this week's episode of How It's Played. On this episode we are discussing leaks in the gaming world and all that surrounds them. As a consumer, you look forward to leaks so you know what to expect, but as a creator, it can be devastating. How are these leaks happening? Do they help or hurt or the game/company? What do they mean for you? All of this and more on this week's episode of How It's Played.
If you can overlook some minor annoyances and adapt to the less intensive battle mechanics, “Pokemon: Let’s Go” is fun game that is sure to suck you in for hours on end.
‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’, despite a potentially regressive narrative for its’ lead and some clear cuts made for time that leave some loose ends to be hastily tied in the last five minutes, manages to meet and even surpass the high expectations one would have coming out of the original.
During midterm elections my home state of Michigan passed Proposal 1 56-44, making it the first Midwest state to legalize recreational marijuana. The state legalized medical marijuana in 2008, and to many in the state, it was only a matter of time before it was legalized in full.
It might be different, but 'Delta' is nothing special or wildly unexpected from Mumford & Sons. It’s simply a work of offbeat mediocrity.
Overall, 'The Crimes of Grindelwald' is a jumbled mess that fails to build on the previous installment. While the film does show Grindelwald, the plot stumbles with drama completely unrelated to the villain. This, along with poorly edited visuals, creates a dull sense of imagination to any fan of the Harry Potter universe.
Welcome back to another episode of Animation A-Team. On this week's episode we are discussing the ever controversial breakup between Funimation and Crunchyroll. What caused this dynamic duo to part ways and why? Join us on this week's episode of Animation A-Team to hear our thoughts on the matter.

No matter if you are looking for a trip down nostalgia lane or introducing a younger generation to the world of Spyro, 'Reignited Trilogy' is a solid remaster of the classics. Even though lackluster gameplay and rushed design choices plague the experience from the start, it still comes off as enjoyable for both veterans and novices. Hopefully this eternal flame can find space to roar once again.
Overall, "Moody Jazz’s Counter Attack" was a decent episode filled with backstory and odd stand moves that definitely left the viewer in awe, but its flaws definitely got in the way of the show’s overall plot this time and left more to be desired.
‘Elastic Days’ is a moody, soft, and introspective album. The instrumentation helps put the listener into the world that the lyrics paint. The guitar solos are crisp and effective in bringing out the emotion of the lyrics. The contributors to the record add enough extra layers to certain songs to help expand the album’s sound. Near the end of the album, the music tires out and kept me wanting something different in sound.
'Origins' sounds like a car crash involving quite a lot of albums. Unfortunately, none of those albums happen to be good ones. Whether it is the flaccid, lifeless electro-pop and EDM, the overblown radio rock destined to plague arenas across the world, or the departures from those two sounds that should’ve been left on the cutting room floor, all the directions that Imagine Dragons attempt to go in lead to dead ends. Based on the consistently decreasing quality of their records, seeing how it could possibly get worse is the one thing worth anticipating for their future material.
