“Kylie Jenner is so problematic,” my friend texted me the other day, out of the blue. “I mean, yeah, but why?” I responded. “Well, I was just looking through her Instagram, and just like… social media is her full time job. And people look up to that,” she said. My friend is right–Kylie Jenner’s empire says a lot about our...

Last week, Buzzfeed posted the most important piece of media this side of the new millennium and it wasn’t that fucking watermelon. Instead it was an article entitled “There’s A Wild Conspiracy Theory That Louis Tomlinson’s Baby is Fake.” Reading it was what I imagine grad school is like: it took a while to get through, there were some rocky parts, but...

Freshman year can be a stressful transition. The graduation from domesticate familiarity to collegiate independence brings with it a distinct uncertainty about one’s place in the world. What kind of college kid will I be? Can I pull off bangs? Is it appropriate for my mom to ship me toilet paper? Questions like these lead freshman to aggressively reject their former high school identities...

Musicals are kind of having a moment right now. This might be especially true for modern rehashings of beloved classics, like the recent live-on-TV renditions of Grease and The Wiz, both of which were high-budget productions featuring a ton of famous faces. Tisch senior Noah Rauchwerk’s upcoming show, “PITS: The Unauthorized Holes Musical,” is doing something similar—albeit with a much smaller...

Imagine this: you and 17,000 of your closest friends are packed into a small venue on a sunny April evening. You can barely hear anything over the din of the crowd, and someone’s elbow has been jabbing into your side for the past hour.

Every time a Buzzfeed video pops up on my Facebook feed showing off another delicious, unique-to-New York food, I die a little inside. Because when people from my hometown (which is two hours away) start posting about taking a trip to the city for a Black Tap milkshake, I know it means that if I want to try it, I’ll...

Everybody likes to talk about how millenials are obsessed with food. People want to know what we’re eating, why we wait in those absurd lines, and how we identify by diet. Bon Appetit (hopefully in good humor?) even made a handy infographic of what the millenial eater is like. Jokes aside, why shouldn’t we care about what we eat? We got...

Everyone settle down, we don’t need any more pop songs. Yep. That’s right. The perfect pop song/video combination has been created so we can just send Taylor Swift back to that Chirstmas tree farm she’s always talking about and call it a day. In case you are unaware, the song and video to which I’m referring is Carly Rae Jepsen’s...

Millennials have often been deemed the “Snapchat generation” — but how much do we know how the app that has apparently defined our generation? On March 29, 2016, Snapchat released revised terms and conditions to reflect the new capabilities it now offers, including live video and audio chats. (And they changed the font.) Snapchat has revised their terms and conditions before, in November of 2015, and...

If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity this summer, why not oysters? The Billion Oyster Project is looking for volunteers to help “plant” (is that how oysters work?) in New York Harbor and could use a little help to revitalize New York’s storied food. Before dollar pizza and bagels, New York City’s food of choice was the oyster. Before Henry...

For Gwynne Richmond and Courtney Smith, theatre is a life, not a profession. Richmond graduated with a BFA in musical theatre from Tisch New Studio on Broadway in December, and Smith with a degree in Educational Theatre from Steinhardt May 2015. Now, they’re expanding interests and conquering business. Their brainchild, Lady Grey Theatrical, is a production company founded in December...

Governor Cuomo signed legislation enacting a plan for $15 minimum wage and 12-week paid family leave earlier this week. The law, a decisive success for labor movements like the Fight for Fifteen, was the result of a budget deal brokered with Senate Republicans, and follows NYU’s March decision to raise student workers’ wages to $15 per hour. Minimum wage increases...
