Amy Poehler is without question one of the funniest people on television. The comedian stars in NBC’s Parks and Recreation, which has a small but fervent fan base. Poehler plays Leslie Knope, who is an excessively optimistic government employee and Pawnee’s most passionate citizen. Knope is so charming and selfless that it almost impossible not to stand behind her, whether you agree with her political ideologies or not. READ MORE

Let me start off this piece by introducing you to Lang Leav- artist, fashion designer, author, and most recently, poet. She has been awarded the Qantas Spirit of Youth Award and a Churchill fellowship. In an interview with Stated Magazine, Leav revealed that “writing is my first love […] and will usually display one [poem] alongside a painting” or “incorporate my poetry into the actual works”. This signature is stamped throughout Leav’s Love & Misadventure through straight-faced drawings of girls marking each of three sections: “Misadventure”, “The Circus of Sorrows” and “Love”. READ MORE

HC Stonehill Loves Garnier!

At the very tail end of last semester, the people at Garnier were generous enough to send us some great samples of their Volume Extend shampoo and conditioner! Now that we have had a chance to really test this out in many of our showers, we can say for sure that we love it! The shampoo really makes your hair feel clean and revitalized, while the conditioner ensures the most touchably soft locks. After getting out, the volume gained by this wonder shampoo really lasts for hours and hours. The only qualm I had was the packaging made it a little difficult to grab, but as soon as you get the full-size version, that problem will be averted! READ MORE

Team Swag took on the Wolfpuppies II and lost 31-28.  Team Swag was down several key players including Allie Smith, Amanda Steverman, and Gibby Gibson.  Their lack of presence really hurt the team in the final minutes of the game.

A new award was also introduced tonight: the Coach Award. This award is given to the player who was an outstanding coaching figure during the game and yelled the most basketball jargon throughout the night. The award went to Megan Ann Fontaine, who was a strong influence on the...

Highlights of the Grammy's

  If there is a way to open an awards show that beats Beyoncé dancing on a chair with wet hair, I would like to know. Add her husband Jay-Z to the mix and you have one of the best Grammy openings in recent history. Beyoncé and her beau brought the crowd to their feet with their single “Drunk in Love.” Sadly, the night could really only grow worse from there, but that is not to say this Grammys had a dull moment. The night was filled with very impressive performances, some questionable moments, and a rough night for whoever sat behind Taylor Swift. READ MORE

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! School is beginning to wind down, peppermint coffee is back and, most importantly the holiday season is upon us. Christmas music is flooding the radio stations and holiday specials are now on prime time television. If you were anything like me last night, I casually quoted How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Jim Carey version, of course) for a mere three hours. However, no matter how much one may try to spread Christmas cheer, it simply is not the same as celebrating at home. Instead of studying in a typical dorm room, there are a variety of ways to decorate your room without breaking the bank but still celebrating in style!   READ MORE
