South Texas band changes it up

Like every rock-star, Cameran Nelson appeared on stage fashionably late and opened with an original song from his new album, which was structured around an ascending root note in E sharp. This structure is usually reserved for alternative rock. But their South Texas country style reshaped the traditional structure. After the song, the band did a few covers and had ... Read More »

A Brutal Return for Vampire Folklore

Anyone who keeps up with FX and all its dramatically chilling television shows have likely been the recent followers of Guillermo del Toro’s new series, The Strain. It is based off a horror novel by the same name, although the series will divulge from the novelization as it progresses into its green-lit second season. You need to have a substantial ...

From the looks of the weather it is transitioning as it always does with rain, rain, and more rain. You all have witnessed the past few days of pouring ... Read More »

A Claustrophobic Journey into Historical Mythology

Found-footage horror films are a dime a dozen these days, growing in popularity since the first Paranormal Activity film seven years ago and fueling unwatchable copycat mediocrity. The scares are cheap, the storylines are bland, and the originality is nonexistent. Thankfully, As Above/So Below manages to break past these barriers and create a new, atmospherically tormenting energy. One of the ... Read More »

Theatre show cancelled

Broadway in the Brush, the theatre’s annual show, was cancelled this year due to a lack of able people. The show, which functions as a fundraiser for the theatre group, is an event both students and people from the Kingsville community can attend. “In the past the show has been very successful, but this year it was cancelled due to ...

A Vividly Gruesome Revisit to the City

Comic book to big-screen adaptations are always tricky, as we’ve seen with Marvel and DC’s recent creations. They have varied from being cinematically gorgeous, full of creative intellectualness, one of each, or neither. Thankfully, “neither” has stayed away from 2014. The Sin City universe, however, stands apart. It is grim but hypnotically exquisite, told in black-and-white narrations filled with a ... Read More »

Electronic Dance Music Hits Kingsville

‘That Awkward Moment’ lacks the comical awkwardness it promises

RATING: 2/5 New York romance tales starring quirky, memorable leads are in no way groundbreaking in our era, ranging from ‘90s heartfelt classics like “Sleepless in Seattle” to newly buzzworthy television shows like HBO’s “Girls.” In more ways than one, “That Awkward Moment” adopts the New-York-minute pace and banter of all those that came before it, but with one slight ...

In the Game – Ryse: Son of Rome

Ryse: Son of Rome

The word that best describes Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One is anachronistic. Even though the game is rife with hilarious historical inaccuracies, it’s the gameplay and story that feel out of time and place. You play Marius, an ancient Roman legionary whose family is murdered by barbarians, and thus swears revenge against all barbarians everywhere. But Marius ... Read More »
