a story by Erin Barry, ’19

On a newly refurbished porch in Hamburg, an old man stretches his weary back, knotted and twisted with long held aches from long ago exertion. His clothes are well tailored, with shiny buttons and a freshly pressed jacket.

steinbeck’s genesis

a transformers movie review

a thoughtsharing* by Owen Conway, ’20

     I personally love the new Transformers movies. I can never understand why critics seem to hate all of the new remakes, especially considering the fact that the movie is about giant alien robots, and it has said giant alien robots. I never truly liked the generality of the third movie; it was good, but it was not as good as all the other three because it seemed to have too many coincidences and/or plot holes.
