The band released their third album in 2013 gracing the world with new sounds for the ba... Read more »

“La La Land” review

January 9, 2017
Filed under Entertainment

I’ll get it out of the way now: If you don’t like musicals, you probably won’t like “La La Land.” The same goes for warm, fuzzy banter, Hollywood nostalgia, and obnoxiously artsy cinematography. That being said, the movie was very good. And as someone who’s a sucker for musical numbers, witty... Read more »

24k Magic: C- Like most Bruno Mars songs, you’ll be belting “24k Magic” at the top of your lungs for about a month, and then you’ll never want to hear it again. This song hardly strays from the stereotypical party anthem, with references to Mars’ designer shoes and coat along with the pock... Read more »

It was so close to being a completely ... Read more »
