Cancelled TV you will love

Okay, nerds. I’ve spent all our time together telling you what not to like, but now that it’s all coming to an end, I’m going to tell you what to like. Some of the greatest television shows are cancelled because not enough people watch them, which is really upsetting but unsurprising since we ...

Students should appreciate on-campus events

Mercer students are extremely ambivalent. Our campus has roughly the same amount of campus events as UGA and less students, yet almost every event is barely attended. The people who do go are the ones who want the free shirt. But there are ways to get the shirt and not attend the event. Show up, get ...

Tina Fey makes you laugh

  4.5/5 Bear Claws If Tina Fey is your hero — and if you’re between the ages of 18 and 28, she probably is—you need to read her new book, Bossypants. You know how on an episode of 30 Rock, Liz Lemon tells Rosemary Howard (Carrie Fisher) that she is her lady hero? That’s how you’ll feel ...

Please, no more 3D movies

  Is it entirely necessary for almost every film to be filmed in 3-D? Sure, I understand how 3-D is cool and sometimes it can add to the film. But it’s just ridiculous how films are filmed in both 3-D and 2-D now, or hastily reformatted to be 3-D right before the release date. Filming in ...

Kathleen hates the Kardashians

[caption id="attachment_2997" align="aligncenter" width="187" caption="Kathdashians"] [/caption] Why would anyone want to keep up with the Kardashians? Seriously. I’ve been very fortunate in that I’ve only seen clips from the horrendous E! production (can it even be called that?) on “The Soup” ...

No more vampires, okay?

I don’t understand this whole vampire fad. Why won’t it go away? Can someone stake it? Sure, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was awesome. But it was awesome because she was killing vampires. Nowadays, vampires are supposed to be sexy or something. No, people who want to rip your throat out are ...

Miley Cyrus: no Disney princess

  Miley Cyrus, who are you? No, seriously. Who are you?! Are you Miley Cyrus, Miley Stewart, Destiny Ray Cyrus, Miley Ray Cyrus or Hannah Montana? Or someone else? I think you’re about due for an identity crisis. I am just thinking about your baker’s dozen of personas.  Look, Miley Montana, ...
