Blahsum- Moontape III- This mixtape from Blahsum, an underground rap-rock group from New York, is a psychedelic barrage of free-associative rhymes, trippy guitar solos, and twisted ramblings about drugs and apathy. I discovered this little-known tape by this little-known group through social media, ...

I’m not really much of a moviegoer, and I honestly will likely not see Black Panther. Despite the rave reviews and inescapable hype, I’m just not going to do it. Don’t get me wrong, I really want to. But going to the movies costs money and it requires that I get up and leave my house, so I don’t...

An unreleased Travis Scott song called "Too Many Chances" just leaked. Travis has been a prominent figure in the world of hip-hop for a relatively short amount of time, but he's already made a huge impression on me and has quickly become one of my favorite artists, largely due to his production...

Say what you want about Southern hip-hop, but one thing is undeniable: it rules the game right now, and it shows no signs of falling off. From the controversial rise of the Geto Boys in the early 90’s, to Lil Wayne’s incessant mixtape output that defined the 2000’s, all the way to Atlanta’s ...

The opening week of my journey to abs can be summed up best by a core exercise I’ve been working on, aptly named “Seven minutes of hell.” I’ll give you the gist. Seven consecutive exercises ab exercises, all to be done in seven minutes and thirty seconds, each more daunting than the last....

Why The Last Jedi Isn’t an Awful Film

The response to The Last Jedi is stupid. Critical reviews of The Last Jedi that came out prior to the release of the film were promising. However, the audience reception of the film was disappointing to say the least. Complaints ranged from the film dragging in the second act all the way to a petition t...

I, Gregory Svirnovskiy, am a man of many talents. The editor in chief of this Marquette Messenger, a sushi connossieur. I can make one minute oatmeal in thirty seconds and know all sixteen minutes of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. One thing that I’ve not yet mastered, however, is the distant world ...

Filed under McAteer's Media Mashup, Reviews

Just fair warning: the following review is going to be filled with praise of fan service and an overall rose tinted perspective. As a kid I spent days on end playing Battlefront 2 (2005) and I loved every second of it. I was obsessed with the clones, clad in shiny white armor with blue stripes running d...
