Gatorade drips enigmatically. The shutters slap each other aggressively. The hallway stretches excessively. On the spectrum of horror, "The Gift" (R) is hard to place. It is incomparable to other thrillers because of its ultimately tame screenplay, lacking blood and gore. And yet, it is widely unsettling....

Does a beaver's anal gland juice make you think of dessert? Is flame retardant a great way to quench thirst? Although it seems unlikely that those things could possibly be associated with standard food products, they are actually quite common. And they're just the tip of the yucky-ingredient-iceberg....

Hidden in Redwood City, Calif. is a small restaurant called Canyon Inn. On the outside it may not look like the most extravagant restaurant, but once you enter through the heavy wooden door, you will find yourself greeted by a pleasant, welcoming atmosphere.

"Gazoline" is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs from outside the United States. I first heard it while watching a YouTube video on Sunday. The video had one of those annoying advertisements that you cannot skip for the first five seconds. The ad itself was for a new video game for Xbox One...

This song simply exploded over the summer. While nowhere near the popularity of Levels by Avicii or Fancy by Iggy Azalea, I found this song to have better content, leading to a more enjoyable listening experience. The song was written by Meghan Trainor, and it was released in late June of this year....

Filed under As seen in print

This year, Carlmont administrators are placing emphasis on the fact that students taking AP classes still have to take a final exam after completing the AP test. In previous years, students were basically done with their AP class once they took the AP exam. The rest of the year and especially finals...

It's a good sign for an artist when two of their songs in the space of five years catapult them into the upper echelon of anticipated work. For Jai Paul, the British producer/crooner/enigma those two tracks were "BTSTU," in 2007 and "Jasmine" in 2012. The performer gained so much buzz that Paul...
