Beyoncé – 7/11

By: TCO Queen Bey has done it again with her newest music video release, 7/11. I normally don’t post videos for the sake of videos, but this one has to be shared. The music = Perfection.

Music to (not) Sleep to: Question Bedtime

By: Meg Humphrey   I’m a huge sucker for fairy tales of all kinds. One of the best things about fairy tales and legends is that they can be retold and expressed in so many different versions, but still retain their meaning.

The Other Dynamic Duo: Danny Elfman and Tim Burton

Opera: It’s Not Nearly As Lame As You Think

Opera: It’s Not Nearly As Lame As You Think By: Brit McGinnis I remember my first aria. I’m finding most people remember the most too. It was O Mio Babbino Caro, originally from the opera Gianni Schicchi. It’s a comedy, with a lot of tropes you’d see in a lot of classical Italian opera. There’s death, love, […]

I’m a Singin’ Pirate: Portland’s Premier Pirate Rock Band

I’m a Singin’ Pirate: Portland’s Premier Pirate Rock Band By: Meg Humphrey I sure do love sea shanties a ridiculous amount. I got my first taste of them as a child thanks to “Whale of a Tale” from Disney’s 20,000 Under the Sea and from checking out a CD from the local library that included […]

Everything from Medieval Studies to Latin to my axe throwing league to my avid interest and love of astronomy. However, I’m EXTRA nerdy about all things heavy […]
