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 ...

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...

When people think of poets, there are a few names that come to mind immediately. Maya Angelou, William Shakespeare, and Homer are often cited as some of the influential and brilliant. Today, I’d like to make a compelling argument for Big Shaq. Big Shaq may be a fresh face to the rap scene, but his...

“Moral Orel” is deceptively funny. I remember sitting on the couch in my living room laughing hilariously, not noticing my mother’s look of disgusted concern: “That’s actually really dark. Why are you laughing?” Why was I laughing? Because “Moral Orel” drags you in with it’s inno...

In today’s world, where rap is the most popular genre of music and anyone with a headset and a Soundcloud account can do it, a band with a strong dedication to the tenets of classic rock is more rare than ever.
