Lisztomania: Nostalgia

In wracking my brain for ideas on what to write for this column for commencement, memories of my high school graduation flooded into my mind, and I started to become nostalgic. Even after a year, it is still hard for me to fully grasp the fact that those four years of my life are over, […]


Off the Crossbar: A competitive culture

While the United States has one of the world’s most successful capitalist economies, its sports leagues take a surprisingly egalitarian approach. Each of the four main leagues has a draft every year that rewards the worst teams from the previous season by giving them higher picks. There is practically no financial penalty for bad performance. […]


Review Rewind: ‘Snatch’

The Movie: “Snatch” The Year: 2000 The People: Jason Statham as Turkish, Brad Pitt as Mickey O’Neil, Benicio Del Toro as Franky Four Fingers, Lennie James as Sol, Dennis Farina as Cousin Avi, Guy Ritchie as the director of the film.

Stat Talk: Boston’s plan to stop the Greek Freak

This season saw the Milwaukee Bucks dominate the NBA with a simple formula: Surround human wrecking ball Giannis Antetokounmpo with versatile shooters. Antetokounmpo is essentially a basketball cheat code: He combines seven-foot stature and freakishly long limbs with the quickness of a point guard. He has lived in the paint this season, putting up the […]


Weidner’s Words: Intangibles off the charts

As the NFL draft has come and gone once again, the scouts head back to the drawing board and begin their evaluations for next year.

Making my (Den)mark: The Final Countdown

I really can’t believe how quickly this semester has gone by. So, I’ve decided to write about the top 5 things I will miss the most about Copenhagen and studying abroad. Classes. I know, I know … Why would anyone actually miss the school part of study abroad? Well, my classes with DIS have revitalized […]


Anti-Bostonian: Don’t be Boston sports fans

Don’t be Boston sports fans, graduating Jumbos. Consider this a push for the fandoms of graduating Jumbos, an anticipatory outreach because many of you will find work in the Boston area. Well, what’s the problem with Tufts graduates working in the region? Isn’t that what attending a university is all about? Unfortunately, young chaps, we […]


Somerville with Townie Tim: Summertime

As the great poets of the band Sublime once said, “Summertime and the livin’s easy.” If you think otherwise, just ask all the people “in the dance”; they will gladly acknowledge that Sublime is “qualified to represent the [Long Beach Community] LBC.” Hopefully, after a semester of reading this column, you will admit that your […]


Hidden Panels: ‘Hawkeye’ Issue 1

“Really?” I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Your last piece of the year is going to be about the Avenger who fights evil with a bow and arrow?” To answer your question, yes, I am. After a semester of epic tales, high-brow social commentary and an above average amount of Batman books, I figured […]


Hidden Panels: ‘New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies’

How far would you be willing to go to save the world? What would you be willing to sacrifice? Money? Time? Sanity? Friendships? Your morals? Most importantly, though, what happens when Earth’s mightiest heroes confront these questions? Such is the content of “New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies” (2013) from Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting. […]
