For the past six months, (yes it’s actually been that long) most of us have had a little bit too much time to ourselves. Some have spent this time honing a craft, finally watching that show you’ve been meaning to get to, or maybe just indulging in some of that sweet, secret single behavior.
Well, it finally happened. It only took a dangerous pandemic to make everyone and their mother think that they should start a podcast. Now, we at Arts, Interrupted would never shame those who want to creatively express themselves, but let’s all keep in mind who’s already been doing it (it’s us).
Throughout the history of horror films, there have been plenty of cheesy movies made. The trends of campy, over-dramatized gore have stuck around for many decades since the creation of the genre.

We all know that app, the one where you record and post short funny videos for the whole world to see. The content posted on it often reflects contemporary tastes and senses of humor. Some creators could even gain fame and success from their presence on the app. No not that one where your videos could only be six seconds, the other one.

In a town with an arts scene as vibrant as Ann Arbor, it’s hard not to find a show or performance going on during any given weekend. Both on and off-campus, there is a wide variety of live music to enjoy.

In a new segment from Arts, Interrupted called Get to the Gig, the gang is exploring some of these events and talking to some super cool artists along the way.
