The first play to come to UAA this fall semester is Neil LaBute's "Fat Pig," directed by student Christina Ashby. If there is one thing that needs to be said about this play, it is that it's a show absolutely worth attending. Put on by the UAA theatre club, Theatre on the Rocks, the play is student run with the cast and crew all enrolled in UAA classes.
The new UAA play known as "Fallen" has a lot for audiences to look forward to. Not only will actors be presenting a script collaborated by UAA students with the help of guest directors, but the students will be showing off new acrobatic moves from the trapeze to silk and rings "Fallen" is a play that focuses on the women of the Old Testament.
Soundtracks have the unique responsibility of helping to immerse listeners into whatever it is they represent, whether it be movies, television shows or even...
Back when I was but a small child, I loved the first-person shooter genre. I grew up with games like “TimeSplitters” and “Goldeneye 007,” games that weren't so much about UAVs, airstrikes or K/D ratios so much as they were about stupid fun. And this was back in the day when gamers had to actually play together in the same room.
The uniquely titled "Game-Kon" is a free video game convention put together jointly by UAA and APU. The convention will not charge admittance and will have free refreshments for all. Activities at the convention include playing video games from every platform new and old, battling in game tournaments and touring the booths set up by game stores such as Play 'N Trade and Bosco's.
Alaskan woman's story comes to life at Cyrano's Playhouse The theatre has a wide variety of genres available to it, but one that seems to be lacking is plays about Alaskan women in the early 19th century. "Make Good The Fires" is not only about a woman in Alaska from 1913-1917, but she's a socialist organizer as well.
May 16 marked the release of Alaskan Home Grown artist Melissa Mitchell's third solo album "Rain or Shine". The release party was held at the Snow Goose where a diverse melting pot of fans and supporters rallied in celebration of Mitchell's latest "creations"; more than songs - the messages pierce the heart with poignancy and inject a healthy dose of self realization without the nasty after effect of judgment.
Diehard Sega Dreamcast fans - oh, they're out there - swear by the original "Virtua Tennis," released in the U.S. in 2000. Real Dreamcast fanatics also swear by "Virtua Tennis 2," not only because of numerous improvements over the original, but because it was one of the last games made for the system before Sega's console division was dissolved.
Thank you, George Harrison. On behalf of me and perhaps The Pica Beats as well, thank you for making the sitar cool in pop music. Like Harrison's incorporation of Indian music to The Beatles, many bands have created innovative and interesting sounds by blending genres, for instance: Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly, Beirut, and now The Pica Beats.
Some movies get all of the advertising because it's assumed that they are going to be immediate blockbusters. Others get no advertising and end up being the real winners no one has ever heard of before. That is the case with "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
All in Good Time Barenaked Ladies Raisin’ Records Release Date: March 30, 2010 With the funny men of Canada missing a vocalist, they aren’t so funny this time...
This band has something that the rock industry has needed. I don't what it is exactly, but it is in the sound. The music of the Thermals catches a listener's attention immediately and holds them there for the whole song. The first time you listen, you'll be impressed, even on the second and third time.
The critically acclaimed precursor to “The Look of Silence,” “The Act of Killing,” was criticized for its ethical problems. In making its subjects, those...
Back when arcades were still populated (do they even exist anymore?), fighting games used to have perpetual crowds gathered around, top players getting more than their money's worth as they took on all challengers. That concept is the basis of the quest mode in "Virtua Fighter 5," in which players navigate a city map with different arcade venues to challenge computer players of various skill levels.
