Anon(ymous) is a Modern-esque retelling of the Greek epic Odyssey. The production started with an immediate air of unnerving eeriness and left me refreshingly on edge nearly the entire time; it’s dark, but not without its moments of comedy. Every scene was a clever jolt of shock, by transitioning from grim seriousness to dark comedy. Fans of dark comedy will have the best time, yet also there is something everyone can enjoy. I, myself had no prior idea of what to expect and at none of my time was spent in disappointment. As a whole, Anon(ymous) is bizarre and fantastic.

After a seven year gap between these consoles and their previous generation counterparts, the anticipation of their releases were tremendous. Both consoles have their own list of exclusive games, tech features, and quite the price tag, but how well do they match up almost a year later?

This past Friday may have been been Halloween, but for all of us Giants fans it was more than just a day to put on creepy makeup and participate in the local “Zombie Pub Crawl”. Friday marked the World Series Championship parade for our San Francisco Giants, a team which has now won three World Series titles in a span of only five years- the only World Series titles won since the team moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958.

There are many different types of families in this world. There are some that are distant, while others stay closely in touch. Around the world, family structure and level of importance differs. In the United States, we tend to view the typical American family as being an ordinary middle-class family living in the suburbs. As a result, we oftentimes overlook the diversity of family life in this country. Many families that live here hold some cultural values and practices that differ from American culture; of these families, there is the Rowinski family.
Netflix recently announced that they have acquired the rights to adapt an original series based off of the best selling novel series 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events'. The books, authored by Lemony Snicket, follow the adventures of the three Baudelaire children- Violet, Sunny, and Klaus. The series chronicles the children's attempts to uncover the mystery behind their parents' deaths while simultaneously avoiding the contrary efforts of the evil Count Olaf.
In 2004, Paramount Studios released a movie based on the book, starring Jim Carrey as Count Olaf. The books themselves are written by Daniel Handler, a man “often mistaken” as the books author.
