Artist Creates Comic Book Covers Inspired by "Black Mirror"

Winter break is upon us, which only means one thing. We can all finally tend to out neglected Netflix queues.

During this break, I finally had the chance to watch the dark anthology series “Black Mirror” and it did not disappoint. Although Netflix is designed for mass consumption, this series was very difficult to binge watch. Each episode is some distraught reflection of a utopian society that slaps you with truth and reality. After the end every episode I’m left staring at my reflection in the computer screen wondering how such a plot was created and it’s social and cultural relevance in today’s world. Many of the episodes explore the issues in the way we consume technology and news and the way in which we interact with each other as a human species. “Black Mirror” currently has three seasons and will be introducing the fourth season in 2017.

The dark mini-series hasn’t only inspired me to sit in silence and analyze the social construct in today’s society at 3 AM, it has also influenced the work of Butcher Billy, a pop culture artist based in Brazil.

Billy has transformed “Black Mirror” episodes into incredible comic book covers.

Here are just a few of his "Black Mirror" inspired covers.

Season 1, Episode 2: Fifteen Million Merits

Season 1, Episode 3: The Entire History of You

Season 2, Episode 2: White Bear

Season 2, Episode 3: The Waldo Moment

I wonder who this looks like...hmm.

Season 3, Episode 1: Nosedive

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
