It's me! I'm back again, here to recap the year in music! You may remember my article last year, where I crowned Kanye West's spectacular album Yeezus as the best album of 2013. I then challenged 2014 to beat 2013, for the latter was an incredible year for music. And 2014 flexed its muscles and proved to be a...
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the third game under the Borderlands name, but is primarily developed by 2K Australia this time around, with the original Dallas-based developer Gearbox Software only lending a helping hand. For those of you unfamiliar with the franchise, Borderlands is a loot-based FPS action RPG. In English, Borderlands is a first person shooter centered around finding bigger,...
Excited for the 2013-2014 NFL season? With many coaching, player changes in this past offseason, it's gearing up to be one of the best in recent memory. After an eventful off-season, with the return of Saints coach Sean Payton, a defensive switch for the Cowboys, Chip Kelly working to turn it around in Philly, and the Ravens looking to defend...

Whether it’s the choice of ingredients available – Qudoba has 2 more starting meat options than Chipotle, counting the vegetarian option – or their ability to wrap the giant...
There’s no need to explain the title of this one, except that it’s the second part of my two-part NBA preview! This time, instead of the Western Conference, it’s the Eastern Conference, featuring the defending champions of the league. Anyway, let’s jump right into the predictions, starting with the... Atlantic Division Boston Celtics The Celtics lost Kyrie Irving and Al Horford. Everyone...
Supercell, the hit app developer that created Clash of Clans, has released a new and addicting game that has captivated Jesuit once again. Amazingly, Jesuit was already enthralled by the game even before it was released in the USA! Players began playing this marvelous game when sophomore, Zack Butz, discovered the game on YouTube and brought it to Jesuit. He shared...
