This week Cold War Kids make their debut at the number one spot with their new album, Mine Is Yours, which drops today! ”Finally Begin” is an unreleased song that hasn’t even hit the radio waves yet! Aren’t you lucky that you get to hear it before everyone else? This album is going to launch Cold War Kids into mainstream stardom if they haven’t achieved it already. Another band to keep an eye on is The Decemberists, who recently released their album, The King Is Dead.

Like bowling but wish it was different? Search no more! Down the street from Loyola lay Stoneleigh Lanes, which features 16 lanes of duckpin bowling. Yes, you heard me correctly: I said duckpin bowling. And no, it doesn’t involve ducks. Although the rules are similar to normal ten-pin bowling, duckpin bowling is not the bowling that you may be used to playing. Voted the “Best Bowling Alley” by Baltimore Magazine, Stoneleigh Lane’s duckpin bowling is a new and interesting way to bowl!

In Part 1 of this two part series, I spoke about Loyola’s offense needing some more passion and charisma. When looking at the other side of the court, the men’s basketball team seems to be lacking the power and strength that is needed to stay inside the paint and to keep other teams from penetrating and scoring. Also, it seems that the Greyhounds are not doing a great job at rebounds, which is a skill in which any nationally ranked team excels. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s the first movie night of the spring semester, and we’ve chosen Walk The Line, the 2005 biographical drama directed by James Mangold. The film is based on the life of country music artist Johnny Cash, played by Academy Award nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix. Much of the focus in the movie is on Cash’s youth, his romance with June Carter (played by actress Reese Witherspoon), his ascent to the country music scene, and how all of these factors impacted his life. Walk The Line was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Actress (Reese Witherspoon).
You know the drill – we provide the popcorn. All you need to do is stop by!
