Playlist: Commiserate on Rainy Days in Boston
Music

The rain in Boston has severely dampened my mood over the past two days, and sadly, it doesn’t look like the weather will be getting much better any time soon. To help you through these dark and wet days, I compiled a playlist of songs that are perfect for locking yourself up in your room and being sad. More

October is here, and Halloween is just around the bend.  You know what that means?  Horror movies, horror movies, horror movies!  You heard me right.  Luckily, for those of us who live in Boston, there will be plenty of eerie cinematic goodies popping up in theaters throughout the month (along with some other classics of the non-eerie variety).  Here are the best film screenings to check out this month in Boston.

Bruins Organist Ron Poster’s Perfect Songs for the Perfect Moment
Sports

Whenever you go into the Garden, it is an experience. But it seems that everything is even more special when you go to a Bruins game. You’ve been looking forward to watch the B’s pummel the Canadians for months now. You check your pockets to make sure you did not lose the tickets. You meet your friends at the gate and walk through the turnstiles, yet again. Juggling a drink and a snack that gave your wallet a Chara-sized hit, you make your way to the seats. As you sit, waiting anxiously for the puck to drop, you may notice a jolly sounding organ playing over the loud speaker. More

Cultural Sommelier: Pairing Chromatics’ ‘Night Drive’ with ‘Drive’
Music

“Night Drive” (the 2007 album by Chromatics) or”Drive” (the 2011 film by Nicolas Winding Refn), it doesn’t really matter.  Both titles could perfectly capture either work; they go hand-in-hand.  “The Telephone Call,” “The Killing Spree,” “Tick of the Clock”?  Are they chapter titles or song titles?  I’ll be the first to admit that pairing these two together is fairly obvious, but that doesn’t ruin the fact that it’s a damn near perfect match.  Allow me to elaborate.

Music

Spotify recently published a report on the listening habits of students at 40 American universities by using custom metrics and subscription characteristics. In what some might find surprising, Northeastern University was ranked number 8.
