One of the strongest indicators of a happy work life might be dependent on your relationship with co-workers. Even the best of jobs can become unbearable if you detest your boss and co-workers.

Sex, Lies, and the Royal Court: REIGN’S Charlie Carrick

The CW’s Reign may not exactly be a beacon of historical accuracy, with its prom-esque costumes and modern-named ladies in waiting, but TV audiences aren’t too upset by that fact. The show, based on the life of Mary Queen of Scots, has a fiercely loyal fanbase that is utterly devoted to its stories and characters. Reign fights every […]

Fly Like a Girl: “Supergirl” – Episode 4 “Livewire”

Our episode opens with some DEO guards escorting an alien. It’s humanoid, but has some freaky features. The guards have the alien in chains, which I’m not sure makes sense because every alien we’ve seen so far is crazy strong and oh look, said alien breaks out of the chains.

7 Thanksgiving Desserts That Aren’t Pie

Thanksgiving is a holiday that’s generally centered around tradition. Year after year we surround the table giving thanks and eat, more or less, the same dishes — mashed potatoes, some sort of stuffing, turkey, maybe a green bean casserole, and pies. Sticking to tradition is great but it can be claustrophobic for those of us […]

CAROLINE BARRY’s Step into the Spotlight with “10 Days in a Madhouse”

In an era where feminism is openly discussed and championed, it’s no surprise that film studios are beginning to produce more female-focused work. And it’s certainly no surprise to learn that Nellie Bly, an American journalist known for her investigative and undercover reporting, is one film studio’s newest movie subject.

Fly Like a Girl: “Supergirl” – Episode 3 “Fight or Flight”

So about that interview. It’s a pretty lackluster interview which I think is a weakness of the episode here. The show is definitely improving with its writing and acting, but it’s not quite smooth yet.

How To Deal with Being Ghosted

Though it may seem like a new phenomenon, “ghosting” is quite possibly the most earth-shattering way to break up with someone and has become a huge part of our growing culture. Regarded as a way of cutting off all communication with an individual without any valid explanation, ghosting is not only the most disrespectful and […]

Gossip Killed The Radio Star: An Open Letter to The Media and Music Lovers

As a self-proclaimed entertainment news junkie, one of the things I have always been interested in, is knowing what goes on in the entertainment industry after the cameras stop rolling. I’m just as guilty of being involved in the very conversation I’m about to break apart. However, it wasn’t until recently that I realized how damaging and disrespectful this type of fascination can be to the world of music.
