Dining hall food can be great, but some- times ordering takeout is exactly what a stu- dent needs. Whether it’s Chinese food, deli, or Italian, the possibilities are unlimited. Newton offers a variety of places within prox- imity to the Lasell campus, most of them without a delivery charge.

Lily’s Kitchen

Chinese food is a common option for college students.

Karen O recently released her first solo album this past month on Cult Records, a different record label than the past four labels with her band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Her album, “Crush Songs,” is comprised of home recordings from 2006 and 2007 that had never been released until now. The collection of songs uses lo- fi, short for low fidelity, which is when the artist makes the recorded quality sound scratchy and flawed on purpose, giving it a unique sound. More…

Nick Offerman is best known as Ron Swanson, the mustache-adorned, scotch-drinking woodsman, grumpy-yet-hilarious character he plays on NBC. Yet, Offerman is more than meets the eye. The actor is an avid woodworker, and as proven in “Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamental’s for Delicious Living,” a fantastic writer. “Paddle Your Own Canoe” is part philosophical, part hilarious memoir of the actor’s experiences and conclusions on life. Overall, it’s a fantastic read and you should really pick it up.  More…

X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 22)

Lovers of all things X-Men can rejoice in the latest installment of the series directed by Brian Singer. Singer has vowed to return the X-Men flicks to their former glory before Brett Ratner, director of The Last Stand, got his hands on it. The cast is packed with stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, and of course Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. In fact, the whole concept of the film is that Wolverine is sent back in time to change history and prevent impending doom for both humans and mutants a like. It should be action packed and fantastic to watch for fans and casual viewers alike.  More…

Season three of “GIRLS” eliminates the standard for 20-somethings living luxuriously with perfect hair, skin, and wardrobes. Half of the characters are still unemployed or unhappy with their current professions. They’re still filled with self-doubt, self-pity, and an innocent belief that the destiny they dreamt of as children will be fulfilled. Jaws dropped; toes curled. That’s the realness of “GIRLS.”  More…

Noah is strong in parts, but not in whole 1

Natalie Kfoury – Co-Editor-In-Chief

From the directorial mind of Darren Aronofsky who amazed crowds with “Black Swan” comes 2014’s “Noah.” The film, which stars Russell Crowe in the lead role, portrays the biblical tale told time and time again. However, Aronofsky freshens the age-old story by introducing stylistic devices, brilliant visuals, and interesting character development that the story of a flood for 40 days and 40 nights did not include.
