By: Kristopher Smith Have you ever watched Survivor and been so sure you would bomb an Immunity challenge the second that Jeff describes the task at hand? For me this happens for pretty much any challenge that involves a puzzle. Now if the challenge involved the consumption of Canada’s delectable delicacy known as the poutine, I’d be all about it. Actually, that isn’t entirely accurate as I’m super picky and don’t really like trying new things which is why I didn’t partake in the 2015 St. John’s Poutine Challenge. I had heard about it last year, was excited but turned off when I saw some of the recipe. It was disappointing because at the time I was trying to branch…

Cinco De Mayo In St. Juan’s…I Mean John’s

Break out your Sombreros and lime up that guac! It’s Cinco De Mayo! This is one of my favorite times of the year and I wish it was celebrated more among the general populace. I once had someone convinced I was Mexican; though to be fair, it was Movember and I had a very dirty looking mustache growing but to me, Cinco De Mayo is the spicier version of St. Paddy’s Day. A time to celebrate (or as some super extreme left wing types might say appropriate) the Mexican culture. I’m relatively new to the Cinco party (or fiesta?) but anyone who knows me knows I love a good theme. On May 4th I rocked a Star Wars t-shirt and…

Why Lemonade Is Beyoncé’s Jagged Little Pill

On Saturday April 16th, Beyoncé released a teaser video online for something called Lemonade. Whatever Lemonade was, it would debut the following Saturday on HBO. Was it a new song and accompanying video? An album announcement? The Beyhive was buzzing. Queen Bey started her Formation world tour on April 27th so whatever Lemonade was, it was going to be big. I sort of figured this might be a new music video or maybe it was an entire album. With a name like Lemonade, I expected something summery; you know when you listen to a song or an album and you think “This sounds like summer.”? What we got was something that certainly quenched our thirst; an entire album with an…

The St. John’s Superhero

What a time to be alive if you’re a nerd. I don’t know if you know this or not but comic books, comic book movies and superheroes are a real lucrative and mainstream thing nowadays. How did this happen? Some people point to the Spider-Man and Dark Knight trilogies as the reason the whole world is wrapped up (Spider-Man pun INtended) in superheroes. Spider-Man brought comic book movies back to the mainstream and the The Dark Knight trilogy made them “dark”, “gritty” and “grounded” (which I have issues with but will save you from the rant about why the Nolan movies are not a true representation of Batman). Maybe it was Spider-Man in 2002 but it was Seth Cohen from…

In Defense of Kanye West

in Music by
Kanye West

By: Kristopher Smith I’m going to publicly come out not only as a fan but also a supporter of Kanye West. Yes, I am a follower of the church of Yeezus. This may not be the most popular stance to make to the public, but frankly I don’t care.
