David Attenborough's narration is the star of 'Planet Earth II'

(11/16/16 5:00am)

Imagine yourself looking upon a vast plain. Buffalo graze among the company of cattle egret. You can hear the rattling of insects in the grass as the sun beats down, iridescent and uncompromising. The animals graze apathetic of your presence, too preoccupied with the great hedge maze of genetics to catch a whiff of your sunscreen. One buffalo nuzzles her young, and you begin to ponder the animal’s inscrutable, familiar behavior.

The new generation of Duke food

(10/05/16 4:00am)

As I pulled into one of West Union’s not-high-enough, not-low-enough high tables Sunday night, there was a hitch in my pre-meal routine. Don’t worry, I still gazed at the plate half covered in grease from my gratuitously cheesy pizza. I still snorted at the week-old episode of "Comedy Bang Bang" piping into my earholes. And I definitely didn’t forget to whisper my customary prayer to David Ortiz. 

Recess Interviews: Hannibal Buress

(09/21/16 4:00am)

Comedian Hannibal Buress—who comes to Raleigh this Friday to perform his new act “The Hannibal Montanabal Experience”—has run the gamut of the comedic experience. Only 33, he’s acted in movies written for acclaimed sitcoms and sketch shows, dazzled on TV in supporting roles and has hosted his own shows and even lent his voice and likeness to popular video games.

Second-year civil and environmental engineering Ph.D. student Jon Holt released "South," his first solo EP, on Aug. 26. A classically-trained drummer, Holt, 26, graduated from UMass-Amherst and spent two years in New Orleans teaching high school science for Teach for America before arriving at Duke. We sat down at Twinnie’s to talk about his musical influences, finding time for passions in the chaos of Duke and YouTube stardom. The following conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Music Review: Ariana Grande's 'Dangerous Woman'

(06/06/16 4:03am)

59 million people can’t be wrong: it’s a delightful YouTube video. The unremittingly charming Jimmy Fallon invited pop star Ariana Grande to "The Tonight Show" to play a whimsical game of “Wheel of Musical Impressions.” The Floridian pop starlet is game. She performs a raspy, spot-on Britney Spears impression. She wails as Christina Aguilera, even riffing for about thirty seconds longer than anyone wanted, just as is Aguilera’s wont. She finishes the silliness with a scarily accurate impersonation of Celine Dion, complete with cheesy crowd goading.

A Beyoncé Concert Survival Guide

(06/06/16 4:06am)

When I purchased my Beyoncé tickets in January, this was not the type of story I was expecting to write. When one thinks Beyoncé concert, one doesn’t think “gut-wrenching” or “monsoon-induced hypothermia” or “hospitalization.” But as I sprawled across my girlfriend’s bathroom floor, clutching her vomit-ravaged toilet, I was hardly reflecting on Queen Bey’s choreography. In fact, I was pretty sure I was going to die.
