Instead of doing another review, I’m gonna do some looking forward to the future this issue. It’s time for a PREVIEW!
Usually it’s hard to preview an album without the whole thing, but Fearless Records has a unique way about them. Their long-running Punk Goes Pop series has come a very long way since Vol. 1, and its fourth installment is fast approaching.
The great thing about this series is that they choose all the songs that you’re sick of by release date and find ways to breathe new life into them. While the entire tracklist is available on iTunes, the only way to get a taste of the songs is through various posts on the official Facebook page from various Youtube videos that Fearless has chosen to allow on the internet. Right now, you’ll be able to hear “Just the Way You Are” by Pierce the Veil and “Rolling in the Deep” by Go Radio.
Being someone who hates most pop music, I always look forward to this album. I’m very impressed with Pierce the Veil’s cover; they’re leaning towards the melodic and it sounds great. Go Radio’s cover isn’t as pleasant, but it’s still not bad.
With 11 more songs that we have to wait for, it’s too early to make the call. I’m still expecting big things from the series regulars like I See Stars and A Skylit Drive, who always deliver solidly. This series has come a long way; we’ll see if the forward progress continues when Volume 4 drops on Nov. 22.
I made this piece depicting the rise of Asian hate crimes in the United States. Within my piece, there is a woman submerged under the depths in which she has been condemned. Under the surface, because our society would not see past her own. Within this whirlpool, she drowns in prejudice and violence. Her breath […]

On Thursday, Feb. 1, the Casella Theater was filled with the mournful melodies of the Kurdish people as Castleton welcomed CP4P International’s “I will dance with those oak trees as long as,” the first performance of the Spring Soundings program. Set in the Kurdish homeland (which includes parts of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria) in […]
Walking into the VTSU Castleton campus’ costume shop, you’re transported into a chaotic, colorful atmosphere. At one of the middle tables, you can see one to two student workers pulling leather gloves out of a box. From elbow length to wrist length, the students continue to layer glove over glove on their arms. Masks lay […]
It was April 2022 and my TikTok and Instagram got flooded with videos from the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial. I’ve always liked Johnny Depp, and I wanted to be “in the picture” a bit. I wanted to know what is going on. So, I watched the trial. I was […]
This is a portrait of George Clooney. It was made with white charcoal on a black paper. It was kind of an experiment because I’ve never drawn on a black paper before. Everything works the other way around from the usual drawings. Usually, you draw all the dark parts, and leave the highlights, or do […]
