As a society, we seem to be fascinated with crime. If you watch the local evening news like I do, you know that a large portion of the stories each night deal with the courts and there have been countless television shows based around the police procedural. I spent fifteen years watching CSI and was on board for multiple seasons of its spin-off shows as well. What is it about crime and specifically murder that gets us all so interested? In my previous article, I wrote about my friend Courtney Mona’s YouTube channel and came out as a sort of YouTube denier. Another aspect of the entertainment world that I don’t often subscribe (pun Intended) to is the podcast, though…

St. John’s is a battlefield of beef and fries this month as fifteen local restaurants are competing in The Overcast’s “St. John’s Burger Battle” which launched on February 1. “It’s February, it’s cold, it’s miserable and you need comfort food as much as restaurants need patrons during their slowest month of the year,” reads their website. Throughout this month, the restaurants will temporarily serve their own burger recipe.

***I decided to step away from the state of global affairs and whining about President Trump since more than enough people are doing so and write about some local news and will try to have a more local focus for my next few articles.*** I like to think I’m pretty up on current events, trends, and pop culture but I’ve got to say that the whole phenomenon of the YouTube celebrity has thrown me for a loop. I remember when “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” was re-recorded for its thirtieth anniversary by Band Aid 30 and seeing that several British YouTube celebrities had contributed to the holiday classic I thought that Bob Geldof could have gotten someone way more famous.…

For the longest time I figured my adoration for The Analog Age came from my deep love for the three band mates. They each held a special place in my heart completely outside of their musical talents and my pride was bursting every time they went on stage. Like a mom in the corner cheerleading like a boss. “Those are my boys up there; they are going to be famous some day! You’ll see, you’ll all see!”   Well in a sense, my motherly instincts were right. In September, The Analog Age posted their first video for “No Sleep” and it went NL Viral. With 12K views and 112 Shares, these boys have some recognizable talent. During this tidal wave…
