Stories By Nicole Luchaco

Say goodbye with a good old-fashioned barbecue

As the graduating class of 2013 gears up for graduation day and all of its celebratory grandeur, TNL went behind the scenes to find out what graduates are up to after the ceremony. And according to most, bigger is not better. “My party will be small, probably around 20 people, mostly close friends and family,” […]

“42” biopic hits a homerun with fans of all ages

“42” is a sports bio/drama that chronicles the life story of Jackie Robinson and his historic sign-on with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Written and directed by Brian Helgeland (writer of “Robin Hood”), this epic film beautifully captures the intensity of segregation in the mid-1900s and what two men of different colors decided to do about it.

‘When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder?’

If there is one word to describe this play, it is intense. This classic from playwright Mark Medoff is full of brusque thematic elements, dark twists and unexpected turns.

‘Jurassic Park 3-D,’ the cherry on top

Dinosaur lovers unite! After 20 years, the classic adventure/sci-fi film “Jurassic Park” is back and better than ever. If there was ever a movie destined to make a screen-popping comeback, “Jurassic Park” is it. Just when audiences thought this classic couldn’t possible get any better, 3-D is the cherry on top.

Coming together to save poetry, music and art

On Wednesday April 3 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. the living arts will be on display with vigor in the UAA Campus Bookstore.

“I started thinking about the government cutting the arts from school budgets and how that is taking art, music and poetry and turning it into somewhat of a lost art,” said student and performance artist Taichiro Ward. “When I was growing up I was immerged in the arts and so this issue is very important to me.”

15 minutes with comedian Erin Jackson

National comedian Erin Jackson — featured on hit shows such as “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”— performed at UAA last week thanks to the Student Activities board. TNL got the privilege to catch up with this leading lady of comedy before her preview show last Wednesday night in the Gorsuch Commons.

Lace up your quads with Rage City Roller Girls

There’s an old-fashioned sensation re-sweeping the nation, and Anchorages Rage City Roller Girls personally invite you to check it out: roller derby.

Erin Brockovich, the one-woman wonder

File:Erin_Brockovich“Erin Brockovich” is based on the true story of a woman who rose above her circumstances and changed the lives of hundreds. Julia Roberts (“Mirror, Mirror”) is phenomenal as Brockovich, a sassy middle-class, down-on-her-luck, single mom who won’t take no for an answer.

The Rock ruins it again

“Snitch” is based upon true events put into play in part by Reagan-era drug laws. Director Ric Roman Waugh’s fourth film edges close to home for many audience members who have gone through similar situations, but doesn’t quite hit it out of the park.

Baby you were born this way

In the past few years a small group of UAA students has hosted an annual campaign called “Body Image,” a small movement aimed a debunking personal and cultural expectations about one’s body.

A spontaneous perspective: ARC Gallery

In an alcove between Kaladi Brothers Coffee and the Consortium Library lies the little-known ARC Gallery. This gallery boasts an array of local artists’ work, and the current display is no exception.

Free concert tickets from KRUA bring karaoke divas out of the woodwork

If tuning in to UAA’s college radio station KRUA 88.1 FM is not a part of your daily routine, you’re missing out.

Dorm room cupcakes

The semester is almost over! Freedom from dorm life is looming, and with it (for most) comes the happy return to the safe haven of free laundry and mommy’s home cooking. But that is a temporary happiness. Come late August the leaves will begin to fall yet again, and with them the mass exodus of […]

Knee-deep in mud: UAA takes creativity to a new level

When it comes to working with clay, beginners are often intimidated by its raw form — how could a lump of mud turn into a vase, bowl or favorite coffee mug? Tucked within both the east and west corners of the UAA campus lie the ceramic studios; the hand-building studio is located in the east […]
