What You Googled This Week: Winter Carnival Edition

(02/09/16 9:48am)

Despite the fact that there is no snow and that temperatures last week seemed more like late April than early February, Winter Carnival is upon us. And yes, while it is nice being able to walk outside without having the air hurt your face, you're probably still concerned aboutWinter Carnival and how it's even going to be a thing in this ridiculous weather. Luckily, you have Google for that:

Winter Carnival Themes Prove Dartmouth’s Obsession with Dr. Seuss

(02/08/16 11:03am)

It’s safe to say that Dartmouth is obsessed with Dr. Seuss. Also known as Theodor Geisel, the famous Dartmouth alum left a massive footprint behind when he graduated in 1925. Actually, it might be more accurate to say that he put on sharp, spiked shoes, stomped around, and even jumped up and down. Freshmen eat green eggs and ham at the Lodge during trips, training us to learn Dr. Seuss’ Dartmouth connection before we even move into our dorms. What’s more, the Dartmouth Co-op sells “Thing 1” and “Thing 2 costumes” for infants, Baker Library has a whole room devoted to the guy, and, oh right, someone named the entire medical school after him. This year’s winter carnival theme is “Seuss On The Loose,” but it is far from the first time we have honored our beloved alum. Check out these Winter Carnival themes of the past that further salute Dr. Seuss.

The Best Shows to Watch on Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime

(01/28/16 9:53am)

Hulu: Jane the Virgin (2014-present) Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez portrays Jane Villanueva, a twenty-something year old virgin who is accidentally artificially inseminated and must deal with all the baggage the pregnancy brings. As a mock-telenovela, this show offers crazy, unpredictable moments entirely unlike anything else on television. A love triangle, a sassy narrator and a murder mystery make “Jane the Virgin” a necessity for anyone looking to be entertained. Casual (2015- present) “Casual” depicts the lives of a recently divorced woman and her brother as they navigate the ups-and-downs of casual dating while also caring for her teenager daughter. This show is funny and modern, portraying the intricacies of both familial and romantic relationships. Honorable Mentions: Parks & Recreation (also on Netflix) Arrested Development (also on Netflix) Community   Netflix: The Newsroom (2012-2014) A more serious depiction of broadcast journalism than “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” (2004), “The Newsroom” offers a sharp look into the life of Will McAvoy, an unapologetic anchorman who attempts to redefine the workings of his newsroom and balance the changes that arise with an alteration in production. Touching on important issues and real events while simultaneously portraying fictional drama, “The Newsroom” is highly recommended. The Vampire Diaries (2009- present) We all thought the vampire craze ended with “Twilight” (2008). But apparently vampires are making a comeback (just look at Lady Gaga in “American Horror Story: Hotel” (2015)). Fortunately, the CW is still airing new episodes of “The Vampire Diaries,” a guilty-pleasure drama that follows an entirely ordinary girl who literally gets sucked into the lives of two estranged vampire brothers. Yes, vampire dramas are overdone, but if you’re looking for something with drama, pretty people and suspense, look no further. Honorable Mentions: Freaks & Geeks The X-Files Bob’s Burgers Jessica Jones Sherlock Dexter The Twilight Zone Breaking Bad (of course)   Amazon Prime: Red Oaks (2015 - present) A coming-of-age story, “Red Oaks” follows David, a college student working at a country club the summer before his junior year. David must find a balance between enjoying one of the final summers of his adolescence and planning for a future that will please both himself and his parents. As a comedy set in the ‘80s, “Red Oaks” guarantees both fun music and big hair. Life Unexpected (2010) Perhaps one of the more underrated and short-lived shows on the CW, “Life Unexpected” follows Lux Cassidy, a foster child who unites with her birth parents after seeking legal emancipation. Over two seasons, Lux becomes immersed into an entirely new world, changing both her own life and the lives of her parents — neither of whom have spoken since high school — in the process. Dramatic and poignant, “Life Unexpected” is unexpectedly a must-watch. Honorable Mentions: Transparent Mozart in the Jungle Orphan Black Workaholics Veep

What You Googled This Week: Snow Storm Edition

(01/27/16 12:38pm)

We may have avoided the twenty-six inches that hit the Mid-Atlantic this week, but there’s snow way to avoid the truth that a blizzard in Hanover is inevitable. Blizzards make possible the Dartmouth winter fun we all love to fail at: skiing, snowball fights and trying to identify people behind big furry hoods. But with the news of an impending snowstorm also come 1) panic and 2) a boatload of questions you don’t have the answers to. Luckily, you have Google for that:

DIY Beauty: Dartmouth Dining Services Edition

(01/25/16 2:00pm)

Picture this: It is a fine Tuesday evening. You have just returned from a two-hour workout at the gym. You feast your eyes on a delightful quinoa spinach tofu salad from Collis and a steaming cup of antioxidant-packed tea. While snacking on your holistic protein supplement, however, you suddenly realize that you accidentally finished all your homework the night before. The horror! In a tizzy you look around your room: Your laundry is done, your bed is made, your shelves have been de-cluttered. A single tear rolls down your cheek. You feel lost and devoid of purpose.

6 Best Spots To Hide On Campus

(01/22/16 1:30pm)

As small as the Dartmouth campus is, sometimes we still yearn for some quiet alone time. Campus is crawling with hidden rooms, tucked away study spaces and cozy alcoves perfect for escaping the bustling Hanover street(s?). Whether you're hiding from the weird hookup that won't stop flitzing you or in need of a study session (Week 3 midterms, whaaat?), here are the six best places to hide out on campus:

Beyond the Bubble: Parker Begins

(01/22/16 9:00am)

That said, there’s a magic to the city, a way of being that is wholly separate and unique from rural life. There’s a certain frenetic energy that is bounded not by nature or by steel skyscrapers, but by people. In the mountains of Vermont, where I grew up, or in the moors and dunes of Nantucket, where I have now lived for five years, humanity never seems to reign supreme. Rather, the storms, the winds, the sun and the land seem to harbor the authority to decide the fate of buildings, streets and sometimes whole towns. But in New York, the limits are what people can do. Never, after a hurricane, would anyone think to simply not rebuild that building since it will just get knocked over by another hurricane. No, instead there exists a billion-dollar scheme to literally armor the southern edge of Manhattan against future storms. It’s like a city of 8.4 million is saying “come at me, bro” to the world.
