A Comeback for the Ages

There aren’t too many things in this world that can make a comeback.  (Trailing sports teams, disheveled recording artists, and the McRib are some of the things that fit in this category.)  But the comeback of the year will take place on May 26th, 2013 when Arrested Development Season 4 premieres on Netflix after being off [...]

A Night to Remember!

To those who didn’t take part in the greatest night of the year, I’m sorry. With the shooting stars and the skills competitions, and the three-point and the dunk contests, Saturday night could only be called one thing—All-Star Saturday night. I’ll be the first to admit that if you didn’t watch it this year because of how poor [...]

Hip-Hop in Django: Does Tarantino Really Care About Educating Us About Slavery?

*Warning: this post contains mild spoilers.* Last week I had a great Facebook conversation with another Consider alum, Elton Li, about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Django Unchained. So, I’m going to use this post to reproduce some of what I said in that conversation and riff on that a bit. Here’s the premise of the movie (if you’re not already [...]

Is there Merit in Hipster Culture?

A friend once kiddingly told me the following riddle: “How do you get rid of all the hipsters in the world?  Tell them that breathing is mainstream.”  Though this is obviously a joke, it calls into question the true motive behind hipster culture.  Are people driven to “hipsterdom” because of a legitimate uniqueness in their tastes [...]

How to Improve the Ann Arbor Music Scene

I have seen some great concerts throughout my college career – and oddly enough, none of them have been in Ann Arbor.  I have spent unnecessary amounts of money on cab rides or rented buses to go to nearby colleges like Eastern Michigan University or cities like Plymouth and Detroit.  And while the great shows [...]

Forgetting Motown: Detroit’s Lesser-Known Music Scene

A great man once said, “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down.”  While the forces of nature have gotten to Chumbawumba (they recently broke up after a 30-year career), there is one city that has that maxim tattooed on its face: Detroit, Michigan. Yes, I am one of those [...]

America’s Favorite Serial Killer

What is the best part about Sunday nights? The answer is not cramming for tests, doing a month’s worth of laundry or realizing that the next day is Monday. The correct answer is “Dexter.” (“Homeland” is an acceptable answer as well.) I am hoping this needs no explanation, but just in case you live in [...]

A Netflix Problem

I think it might be worse than swine flu. Worse than doing homework on a Saturday night. No, it’s not a bird. Not a plane. Not a cliché! It’s TV-binging. In my pre-college days, I would always wait a week for the next episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm or American Idol. But man, once I [...]

Spring 2012: ‘Tis the Season to be Mali?

We are in the midst of a new musical era, that of electronic music. Techo songs, DJs, raves, and neon apparel have permeated not just at the performances in which these shows take place, but throughout our everyday lives. DJ Skrillex performed at the Superbowl, the most nationally televised event of the year. “Levels,” house-music-master [...]

After music festival junkies heard that the festival was expanding to two consecutive [...]
