The Unexpected Pleasure of Avenue Q

by Joey Mensah; So, I knew I had to attend this musical because it was a class requirement for my Drama in American Business course. I’m not the biggest fan of musicals, so I wasn’t really looking forward to having to attend. And then I heard it starred puppets, and I was even more confused…

Color therapy is an enjoyable, low-risk form of complementary and alternative medicine that is based on the chakras found in our bodies. Its benefits are sometimes remarkably obvious: we feel…

Animation is also Art

By Andres Riofrio;  The greatest misconception about art is what is considered art. Currently, in order to be an artist you have to be a musician, a painter, a sculpture, a dancer, or something along those lines. You are not considered to be an artist if you are a film animator, a 3D modeler or…
