Fortnite vs. PUBG | Which One is Better?

As most people know, there have been huge games that have come out since summer 2017. There are games that aren’t based on anything like Destiny and Destiny 2, then there are games that are based on real-life moments or movies, like Star Wars Battlefront 2. Out of all of these major games, two smaller games which have been around for years which snuck through the bigger games. Those games are Fortnite and PUBG.

Channel (not so) Awesome

Fame can come with a lot of shady controversies. Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, and Al Franken are just a few examples of celebrities who were once beloved by many and were later exposed to having done terrible acts. And the people at Channel Awesome are sadly starting to fall into that category. It’s surprising how a group of people we all thought were just harmless movie critics who so many once looked up to, could be involved with everything that has been going on around the channel.

Everyone Deserves a Great Love Story – “Love Simon” Movie Review

Every generation of teenagers endures the same things; the angst, the rebellion, and the relatability of the teen movie. Every few years, a new teen movie fit for the new era of ever so angsty teenagers comes out. This year’s was a little bit different than any of these other teen rom-coms, which certainly wasn’t a bad thing. Instead of the normal boyfriend-girlfriend story, Love, Simon follows the story of not-so-openly-gay Simon Speir, when his story gets pushed into the spotlight.

Is “The Simpsons” Becoming Repetitive?

By Luke L.

“D’OH!”

To Simpsons fans, this is the universal cry of the comedic genius Homer Simpson. The white-shirted, blue-jeaned master of gut-busting, stomach hurting, hilariousness. But others, others who aren’t familiar with this show (and some who are) think Homer Simpson is just a repetitive, loud, drunk hippo. This has long been one of the quiet arguments in the “spectacular” business of television. Here is what Middle Schoolers have to say about “The Simpsons”:

The Truth Behind Fairy Tales

By Helena F.

Everything about a fairy tale seems magical and perfect. The birds are always singing a  “song” or the girl falls in love with a prince and they live happily ever after. Or the girl gets married and rides off in a silver carriage into the sunset with her prince charming. Although, are fairy tales as innocent as they seem? Or are they much more gruesome than anyone could ever imagine?

Less Is More

A common problem that America has been facing is obesity. And honestly, I understand why. With a fast food restaurant or corner store at every turn, it is much easier to get a cheeseburger for one dollar and right nearby then a salad at a cafe for 10, where you have to walk a while to get it too. But one thing I’ve noticed in America’s food industry is proportions. And the large amount that they come in too.

South Park: Still Fresh

As many people know, South Park has been on for over 20 years, and with 21 seasons under their belts, it’s odd to think that out of all the cartoons in existence, this is one of the longest running cartoons that hasn’t gotten stale. Why is it that shows like Spongebob or Family Guy get criticized for being repetitive while often having half the number of seasons?

“Real” Fake News

By Ian Kohn and Addison Goldner

Our president, Mr. Donald (Duck) Trump claims that he himself came up with the term “Fake News.” Well, that’s just fake news. In fact, when he was asked why he claimed that, he responded… “Well, all this ‘News’ is based off of me, so I obviously invented fake news.” Trump (*ahem*ahem* Drumph) has also claimed that Taj Mahal casino was built BEFORE the Taj Mahal in India. He says he remembers building the Taj Mahal in India, yet in a picture in the Oval Office, he has a picture of him building the LEGO Taj Mahal.

Mixed Race Couples in Media

I am a proudly mixed race kid. There are more than two cultures circulating around my home, too. I’m fairly racially ambiguous. What you’d expect. But mixed race families come in all shapes and sizes. The few mixed race families shown in TV are pretty generic. A black man, and a white woman with a few beautifully uniform children with big blue eyes and skin JUST dark enough to not be a white person. But that’s not representative of most mixed race families. At all.
