The Fantastically Dramatic and Peculiar Week Of Oct. 14

Some exciting things have been happening lately, so here's the "week in review."

The Fantastically Dramatic and Peculiar Week Of Oct. 14
20th Century Fox

This has been a crazy week. I’ve been super busy, yet I feel like nothing too exciting happened to me personally. There are, however, a few things that stuck out about this past week that I would love to talk about. So think of this article as a sort of “week in review” to catch you up on some exciting things that happened this week.

1. Screaming for “Scream Queens”

I have watched “Scream Queens” since it premiered in Fall 2015. It was weird at first, but it got so much better every week and the big reveal of the killer (or rather, killers? #spoileralert) was amazing. So when the show got renewed for a second season, of course, I was excited. And the first two weeks of Season 2 were good. But it wasn’t until this week’s episode that I really decided that maybe this season will be even better than the original. I think what made this week even better was that the intensity picked up and they killed off a pretty major character. They also dropped a hint or at least what I took as a hint, to who the killer or relative of the killer could be. The other exciting thing about this show is that I have been picking up on the color symbolism which I love. I don’t recall if it happened in the first season, but this year the killer is called the Green Meanie and it seems that every time someone is going to die, there is green lighting somewhere in the scene. (Red lighting was used when Season 1’s killer, the Red Devil, made an appearance.) It just really amuses me.

2. Fantastic News and Where To Find It

I’m a Harry Potter fan. You probably know this about me. So when I heard that the “Fantastic Beasts” trilogy was being upgraded to five films, I freaked out! I also heard, from a different source that I don’t know if I trust 100%, that Dumbledore and Grindelwald from the “Harry Potter” series will show up in the future films. Even if they don’t, we know for sure that they’re mentioned. We’re still getting more time to enjoy the Wizarding World, so whatever works.

3. So Many Seasons…

I finally finished Season 4 of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Only nine more seasons to go… I was very pleased with how the fourth season ended though because I was honestly afraid for the characters’ lives. No spoilers, but I know someone major has to be dying by the end of the fifth season. You can’t just keep all of the main characters of a hospital drama living forever. Honestly, this show is in my top five and it has been since this summer.

4. Something “Peculiar” Happened

Last week, I went to see “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children” and honestly, it was one of the best films I have ever seen. In my whole life. I can only think of a handful of movies that I possibly like more, although they may be equal. After seeing the movie, I immediately ordered the trilogy on Amazon and plan to start reading them within the month. If the movie is that amazing, I have faith that the books will be even more fantastic.

5. #JustFrankensteinThings

If you didn’t know, I’m in “Frankenstein” this fall. I’m the Constable (who I have named Charles) and, although I don’t have many lines, I have come to appreciate this story so much. I have never read the original story, but just seeing my castmates pour their all into the show is so exciting. The rehearsals are so much fun too because the cast is made up of so many awesome people who I am proud to call my friends. Some of us went to Steak ‘n Shake the other night (really late by the way; I was so tired the next morning) and we laughed and had great conversations. So many good things have come out of this experience already and we’re only two weeks into rehearsals.

So that’s about it for my week in review. Mostly pop culture, but I guess there were some pretty fun things going on in my life. Thanks for reading this fun little article. Let me know how your week went and what you think about “Scream Queens,” “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” or any of the other things I talked about. See you next week.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
