‘Midnights’ hits different: Taylor Swift's 10th studio album marks a triumphant return to pop

(11/15/22 5:37am)

On October 21st, exactly 12,000 days after Taylor Swift was born (oddly specific, but would you expect anything less from the woman known for her easter eggs?), “Midnights,” Swift’s 10th studio album was released at the titular hour. Before fans even had time to properly process the initial collection of work, at 3am Swift hit fans with an additional drop of “Midnights (3am Edition),” featuring seven additional songs, before ending her October 21st release-spree with a music video for “Anti-Hero,” one of the album’s most vulnerable pieces of work.

(Don't) do it for the resume

(11/15/22 5:00am)

I’ve been getting very intimately acquainted with my resume recently as I navigate the very particular hell that is applying and interviewing for internships. I’ve learned how to spin the things I’ve done into an overarching narrative and individually cultivated stories, as though a page of titles, operationalized descriptions, and dates is all it takes to make a life. From there, I can reveal an employable quality about myself by breaking down these experiences into discrete situations.

‘Not in this alone’: Black students reflect on community, significance of the Mary Lou as center looks to reopen next fall

(11/14/22 3:57am)

The Mary Lou Williams Center was a place that exuded safety and warmth, sophomore Tiana Clemons said, sitting on a bright blue bench on Abele Quad. She described a typical weekday. A gentle light would stream in through the windows. Some students studied diligently; others filled the space with laughter, absorbed in lively conversation. Familiar BET shows and music played in the background. It was a place, Clemons said, that felt like home.





An EXPOsé

(11/14/22 5:00am)

EXPO markers are an essential part of our education. For years, the way in which we’ve learned practically every subject has involved some adult, presumably with a teaching degree, writing information on a whiteboard, erasing it, and hoping that we remember it all. Of course, at Duke, that teaching model is no different — unless you’re a math or physics major, in which you now probably have a thin layer of yellow chalk in your lungs. 




Missing out on Drake and 21 Savage's new album is not your loss

(11/14/22 12:00pm)

To be frank, I’m not a fan of Drake. Even with access to the industry's very best, he somehow manages to release underwhelming tracks at an impressive rate. Although experimental to his fans, “Honestly, Nevermind” was a 52-minute composition of mediocrely produced house-inspired beats and lazy lyrics. Rather than marinating in its critical response and searching for inspiration, less than sever months later, we’ve been introduced to an ambitious, full-length joint album with 21 Savage.
