A visit to The Outhouse

The Outhouse

Trying to explain the magnitudes of Newfoundland culture to anyone off the island, can be extremely difficult. The language, the music, the pastimes, the towns, the beers and the need for a shed: the list is never ending. How does one even comprehend the extensive language or even the regionalization of dialect?

The 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge: Part I- Challenge Accepted

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…

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

in Arts & Culture/Music by

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…
