Classic Review: The Black Parade

When I say “emo”, a very specific image probably comes to mind: Black hair with long, side swept bangs covering one or both eyes, black clothing, and lots and lots of eyeliner. And no band is more commonly associated with this style and emo as a whole than My Chemical Romance. Formed in 2001 asContinue reading Classic Review: The Black Parade”

When It Snows, It Squalls

I’m a big fan of your music, Luke Combs, but here in Illinois “When It Rains, It Pours” is overrated. Reality is that when it snows it squalls, and that is exactly what happened on April 1st and 2nd of 2022, well, mostly. No, it’s not an April Fools’ joke and it’s a bit ofContinue reading When It Snows, It Squalls

In my mind, I thought that PhishContinue reading “Gone Phish-ing”

Internship at Disney

Hello everybody, and welcome to yet another instalment of “Hailey has to write a blog post for the radio website”.  I wasn’t entirely sure what to write about this time.  I’m not overly depressed like a year ago, and I did a hopeful look back last time I did this.  The next logical step wouldContinue reading “Internship at Disney”

North America’s Last Hope?

“Esports is like sports!” is usually something I say when someone asks me what the whole hype around it is about. Watching the best players in their respective video game titles duke it out to be considered the best in their region or the world is something that’s very similar to sports. When someone asksContinue reading “North America’s Last Hope?”

CMA Awards – An Event of the Past

I remember excitedly jumping onto the couch next to my family as a child, waiting for the Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards) to begin. It was a tradition in our house: singing along to our favorite music while we ate ice cream and waited anxiously to see who was going to win the nextContinue reading “CMA Awards – An Event of the Past”
