Take a seat: Middlebury adds 44 new Adirondack chairs to its lawns

Direct Your Attention: A more optimistic playlist

Maybe it’s the recent afternoon sunshine or number of days over 60 degrees in the past week, but dammit, I’m feeling optimistic. I’ve spent the last year listening to (and writing about) music that reflects the distant and often lonely existence that quarantine forced us into. Looking into my ...

Home sweet home: Dorm decor takes on new importance

The college dorm room, the often-crusty, white-walled box assigned to each student as a place to sleep between trips to the library and late nights at the Grille, has taken on a new meaning throughout the pandemic. Once a space to be avoided, the dorm room has become a place where many feel the most ...


GoogleDrive_Malcolm-Marie

Reel Critic: ‘Malcolm & Marie’

“Malcolm & Marie” should have been applauded for its insightful commentary on power and relationships, but the film falls victim to the trend of diversity box-checking in Hollywood.  At its core, “Malcolm & Marie” is about the breakdown of relationships — a timely release made more ...

The murder on McCullough: Middlebury’s new avian neighbors

The first day we were released from room quarantine this semester, I saw a dead crow half-frozen in the snow outside of Hepburn Hall. I’ll be honest, it didn’t seem like the greatest omen for the start of the semester. However, after my encounter with that one poor, unfortunate soul, I started noticing ...


Minari-1

Reel Critic: ‘Minari’

The American Dream is often a beacon for immigrants. Yet, time and again, it becomes clear that this dream is only an ideal: what lies beneath the veneer is a story of strife and sacrifice. When director Lee Isaac Chung tells the story of “Minari,” he highlights a long-awaited different side of ...
