Top Five Store-Bought Cookie Doughs

Top Five Store-Bought Cookie Doughs

Filed under Entertainment

As the holidays finally draw near (and unfortunately, so do finals), cookie baking can help bring on the holiday spirit and relieve the stress momentarily. While home-made cookies will always dominate the baking world, sometimes store-bought is the reality. Either way, they taste pretty good! To help...

Recently I got the chance to speak with Kate Gatt of Personal Best. After coming out with punky/ dreamy Arnos Vale this year, the band toured with Lemuria over the summer which is what really put them on my radar. Their sound is this sick combination of pop-ish vocals with punk influences that I’ve b...

I couldn’t imagine a better album for the Fall season other than Petal’s Shame, which was put out last month. It has that dreamy sound with all the heartaches that I personally can cry on the floor listening to. The Scranton, PA band played the Masquerade last Thursday. I recently had the chance t...

Based out of Jacksonville, Conjure has that emo/punk/indie sound that I end up listening to more than I’d like to admit. Their self-titled EP is released December 18, but you can hear “Driven” now on BandCamp. I recently spoke with Robert and Buddy of the band about System of a Down cover bands...

DIY vet Jeff Rosenstock still has one of the most energetic and sweaty shows you can ask for. The Brooklyn native is currently on tour with Modern Baseball, where they’ve been playing from their last album release We Cool? as well as covering random songs fans have been sending in.

    Since coming to college, I’ve made more phone calls than all my high school years put together. The people that take time to call instead of passing texts or ten second snapchats are the people who will be there when you get back home again. However, the people that you expected to b...

  The recent launch of the horror film, Crimson Peak, has stimulated quite an enthused reaction among the many horror-crazed fanatics in the film industry. However, after viewing the film myself, I am still uncertain as to whether it is appropriate to place this movie in the “horror” category...

Twenty-five. It’s the name of her new album, set to release on November 20th of this year, it’s the age of British pop star Adele when she began writing it, and it’s the number of times you’ll need to listen to her first released song from the album, “Hello”. Ever since the thirty-second preview of...

  The purpose of a performance is to create an environment, a feeling, or a reaction that the audience can fully understand. One puts on a performance fully expecting the audience to uncover the implications of what has been portrayed. It would be rather absurd for a director, a troupe of ac...
