Love It or Haute It: UGGs

Surprising as it may be, UGGs have been popping up already around campus. While the Boston weather is unpredictable, one aspect of chilly weather we can all trust in is that people will be wearing UGGs. No one can separate the UGG brand from its iconic suede and sheepskin boots. Even as styles have changed, […]

What’s The Mood?: September Jams

Dear readers, I have a confession to make. I’m a compulsive Spotify playlist maker. I spend an ungodly amount of time scrolling through my music library compiling playlists for the most specific moods I can think of — playlists which I probably won’t listen to again after making them. I’ve got my decades playlists; my […]

Bhallin’ with Books: Mourning Morrison through respect

“Read anything, as long as you can’t wait to pick it up again.” Nick Hornby, “Ten Years in the Tub” (2013). Classes and homework come around and, like clockwork, I forget every book I was itching to read by Sept. 1. My 2019 school year resolution is to stop this from happening. There are way […]

Bangers and Bops: Mitski and the death of the American Dream

I am a piano lesson dropout. Despite my parents’ best wishes, the only keyboard I touch these days is on my laptop and the only tune I know how to play is the storied “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” So this column, ostensibly centered around not only bangers but also bops, will not be about […]

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 […]

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. […]

Somerville with Townie Tim: Apartment Hunting

It’s that time of the year again to look around your living room and decide if you want to give it another year with these clowns. I know the schedule for hunting for apartments can undulate depending on where you live, and I have heard of students searching as much as a year in advance. […]

Making my (Den)mark: April Break

I just spent the past several days exploring Greece, both Athens and Santorini. Luckily, my program gives us an additional mini-break in April for the Easter holiday, so I was able to squeeze one more trip into my abroad time without feeling like I missed too much of Copenhagen’s spring weather. And like Tufts’ spring […]

Hidden Panels: The Dark Knight Returns Issue 3

“It ends tonight, Joker.” These are grim words that herald the beginning of the last battle between Batman and his greatest nemesis. This week, we’re taking a look at a classic, an issue of the legendary series, “The Dark Knight Returns” — specifically, issue 3, “Hunt The Dark Knight,” written and drawn by Frank Miller with Klaus […]
