Product Review: Beyond Meat Beyond Burger

I feel as though I’ve been hearing about the Beyond Burger for eons. Developed by Beyond Meat, a company that’s arguably changed the whole damn game when it comes to vegan meat substitutes, the Beyond Burger is meant to simulate ground beef hamburger patties as close as possible. This product finally made its way onto the local…

Book Thoughts: The 100 Series

  Diving into The 100 series by Kass Morgan was a weird adventure. I’ve watched the CW show for three years, so I’ve had plenty of time to form strong opinions about the characters and story progression, as well as what the writers are doing well and what they’re doing really poorly. I recently started writing about it…

Concert Recap: Regina Spektor

  On Monday, March 6, I had the opportunity to see Regina Spektor live for the first time. It was an incredible show. I’ve loved Spektor’s music for more than a decade; she appears on multiple soundtracks and scores and her music has inspired countless fanworks.

10 Years of Infinity On High

On February 6, Fall Out Boy’s third studio album Infinity On High turned ten. I had a hard time believing it when Reed told me, because this album has been in and out of rotation for me ever since it came out. It feels almost timeless, given that if I don’t listen to it for a…

New music time! This one also hit me via email, but it’s a much different vibe from my last featured artist. New England pop-punk vet Charles Iwuc released his first solo EP under the moniker Last Letters on Friday, Nov. 11. Nothing to Write Home About is a seven-track, self-produced record that sounds like the softer side…

Product Review: Trader Joe’s Vegan Dressing & Spread

Everyone tells me, on a regular basis, how gross they find mayonnaise. I understand the opinion: mayonnaise is basically egg whites and oil. It has a distinctly vinegary flavor that’s honestly kind of unpleasant. But I grew up dipping my french fries in it and slopping it on sub sandwiches, so it’s a condiment I…

New to Me Music: Fossil Youth

New music! I haven’t done of these in a while. Damn. You can thank my email for this one! Oklahoma-based pop punk band Fossil Youth has a new album, A Glimpse of Self Joy, coming out on November 4. I heard about it in an email blast from Take This to Heart Records and I won’t lie…
