In the house where I spent my first ten years, there was a big stove and oven contraption set into the wall of the kitchen. The behemoth was surrounded by terracotta tiles, Tuscan floral reliefs that only the seventies could produce. It was a suburban fantasy that any housewife would cry before. The stove, in its cave of orange sunflowers, had little red lights near the knobs of each of the burners to tell when they were hot, as most stoves do. My first experience of being burned came as a result of this.

There’s something really magical about being a different person for a day. Whether it’s just you but fancier or a complete disguise, dressing up in any way is generally a hoot, no matter the time of the year. Of course, with Halloween this week, I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot. What should I dress up as? What incredible costume could I take pictures of and post on Instagram, proving my loyalty to the holiday beyond simple recognition?

There’s nothing quite like Halloween on a college campus. In most people’s minds, Halloween is one day, Oct. 31, where all the ghouls and black cats come out to play. But in a college town, the spirit of the season goes on for weeks, if not all year round. There’s a reason we all refer to the general timeline between Oct. 15 and Nov. 5 as “Halloweek.” This is especially true of the costume culture in Ann Arbor, which serves as a healthy reminder of both the brilliance and the stupidity of everyone in their early twenties.

The idea of “gifted and talented” programs is nothing new: In fact, I would expect many of the people interested in this article were a part of one in the past. It’s a good way to group students with exceptional promise together, and also a perfect opportunity to infuse school with a sense of bizarre competitive edge early on.

Listening to All Mirrors is like watching a million little films in your head, as each note, heavy with meaning, plays on.

The tween mentality is no longer just for tweens, it’s for everyone and their mothers, literally.

Walking home from that second day at Riot Fest, my skin buzzed with the energy of everyone I had seen that day.

From the moment the track begins with a repeated “Intergalactic, planetary, planetary, intergalactic,” a listener knows they’re in for something special.

If there’s anything Riot Fest is perfect for, it’s that ― that you can find people just like you, no matter how weird you are.
