On November 16, Durant High School hosted their fall art show, “Cirque Du Art.” The Durant National Art Honors Society (NAHS) brainstormed and prepped this show since October, and the outcome was better then they had expected.

The personalized decorations and many different mediums of art by the art students at Durant. There were many canvases painted with oil paint or acrylic paint, ceramic pieces that were made to show artists imaginative side, and wire and wood décor made by the NAHS.

Raven Clark, senior and Durant national art honors society’s president, said “I feel like it went really well, I think it’s really exciting that the art community can get out here and even if we are just in a school, everybody’s coming and enjoying the show.” Raven was very happy at the amount of people that showed up and was very proud of the outcome of the event.

The exhibits were stunning. There were two rooms that were filled with ceramic projects, paintings, paper projects which showed how creative and talented the students in the art program really are.

I asked Hayley King, junior, who is also in Mr. Bowers 2-D art class and had two unnamed pieces in the art show. “I really like the piece that has all of the ceramic butterflies coming down from the ceiling,” she said, “I don’t know why, I’m just drawn to it.” Hayley thinks that the art show is important because it helps showcase what the art students hare capable of. “I think this is one of our best ones.” King said, referring to the art show.

The art show really showed the student body what the art program has been up to since the beginning of the year, there was many positive things said from teachers and students, the comment box was overflowing with positive comments!

Kylie Jenner recently became a new mom to Stormi Webster on February 1st of this year. Baby Stormi weighed eight pound and nine ounces.

Jenner felt insecure about her post birth body at the Calvin Klein photo shoot with her sisters taken recently after Stormi’s birth. Jenner confessed that it was hard and discouraging to get back to photo shoots and fittings with the way her body had changed after having her daughter. Khloe Kardashian, Jenner’s sister, informed her that her body looked great still and was starting to go back to how it was. Although her sisters were very supportive, Jenner was still uncomfortable with the changes of the pregnancy and proceeded to tell her family how she was 158 pounds and unhappy.

Kim Kardashian, also Jenner’s sister, also has had kids and knows what Jenner is going through. Giving her wise words along the way to boost her confidence, Kim Kardashian made sure Jenner kept herself happy along with Stormi. Her idea of getting out of the house has taken them to celebrate Stormi’s first Halloween and going to take cute pictures with pumpkins. They headed to the Underwood Family Farms as a family, including Travis Scott, and started snapping away pictures of their adorable daughter as they were going through mazes and games, picking out pumpkins and looking at some animals while they were there.

Soon after they went home to their lavish mansion in Beverly Hills that costed around 13.45 million dollars, which is Jenner’s fifth property. Presumably Jenner and Scott own the home as joint tenants which means they are co-owners of the house. The house has a great pool and deck for Stormi to play around in as she grows up and for the whole family to hang around at. Their house includes a multi-car garage, massage room, a gym, and more. The newly purchased mansion has just about everything that lives up to the Kardashian standards.

Last year, Disney announced that it would be launching its own paid streaming service in 2019. The new platform is set to stream all pre-existing and upcoming Disney films and TV shows. A name for the service has not yet been decided but many are calling the new service “Disney Play” or “Disneyflix.”

Disney acquired the majority of BAMTech, a technology provider and steaming giant, to create the subscription service in a 1.58 billion deal. BAMTech powers streaming for MLB, WWE, HBO, and NHL.

A 2012 deal allowed Netflix to stream Disney films, but with the announcement of the new service came the news that all Disney and Pixar titles would be pulled from Netflix in 2020.

Disney wants to produce new original films and TV shows for the subscription service. A live-action Stars Wars series has been confirmed for the subscription service. Disney is also planning to create new shows based around characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe such as Loki and The Scarlet Witch.

The platform will not have any R-rated films, and instead these films will be streamed on Hulu, which Disney owns part of. An official subscription price has not yet been announced but Disney is aiming for the service to cost less than Netflix.

In October of 2016, it was announced that the popular mobile app, Vine, would be shutting down. Twitter bought the video-sharing service back and 2012 and ultimately made the decision to delete it.

The end of Vine sparked overwhelming outcry from the public, with people creating petitions and sending angry letters to Twitter in hopes that the social media giant would bring Vine back. But Twitter refused to relent and the Vine app was shut down in early 2017.

Though Twitter rejected to listen to the public, Dom Hofman, one of the founders of Vine, did not. Hofman announced that he was going to make a second vine app, called “V2”, tweeting, “I’m going to work on a follow-up to Vine. I’ve been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc.”

There was a roar of excitement from former Vine users after Hofman’s big announcement. People were very eager to be able to create more vines.

Unfortunately, On May 4, Hofman tweeted that the second Vine would be postponed for “an indefinite amount of time.” He explained that financial and legal difficulties were the reason for the halt in production.

Recently, a company called ‘VidWorld Labs AB’ created a Vine-style app called V2. Many people downloaded it thinking it was the official second Vine as it had the same name as the app that the vine creators were working on. The internet was buzzing, with everyone discussing the return of Vine on Twitter and Instagram. Even former Vine stars were downloading the fraudulent app and posting on social media about it.

Shortly after the fake Vine 2 came out, the real V2 app released a statement on Twitter, saying “Unfortunately, we are not currently in the app store. That is an impersonation.” They also went on to explain that when released, “V2” will no longer be the app’s name.

The fake V2 only permitted users to sign up using their Facebook or Instagram accounts. Now that it has been confirmed that V2 is not the real Vine sequel, many are worried that their login info to these accounts is being used for the wrong reasons.

Universal Orlando is introducing a brand-new roller coaster to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The ride will be located in Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and is replacing the Dragon Challenge roller coaster that was torn down in late 2017.

Eager fans have been anxiously waiting for Universal to release more information about the supposedly “magical” new coaster and on Oct. 1 they were finally able to learn some more about it. Though the ride’s name has yet to be released, Universal dropped the first official promo art for the new coaster.

The artwork pictures the tracks of the ride weaving in between the trees of what fans think could be the Forbidden Forest. According to the Theme Park Insider, the coaster will likely contain multiple indoor elements as well as a drop track.

Though the attraction is still in the works, fans can walk by the construction site and get an idea of what the ride will entail. Hypable’s Stefanie Lis wrote “I walked by the construction site in August and can tell you that the amount of land this ride takes up is massive.”

The attraction has been in the works since early 2017 and is expected to be finished in early 2019.

Many people’s first thought when they hear an old classic story is being rebooted is “why?” A lot of people possess the belief that classic shows and movies should not be remade, as they fear that the old stories they once fell in love with will be ruined. But sometimes, bringing an old story back to life can have unexpectedly good results.

Netflix’s Anne with an E is a slightly modernized retelling of the wildly famous Anne of Green Gables books. The show aired on Netflix in early 2017, and the second season came out in early July of this year.

As someone who did not read the Anne of Green Gables books prior to watching the show, I cannot say whether or not the show did the books and original movies justice or not. But what I can say is that I was very touched by the show and I genuinely enjoyed watching it.

The story takes place in the 19th century, and is centered around Anne Shirley, a young orphan living in a small village called Avonlea. Siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to take in a young boy to help them with their farm, but when Matthew goes to get the child, he finds that there was a mix-up, and he was given a girl instead.

Anne Shirley is the vibrant young orphan who was sent in place of the young boy. Anne is taken home with Matthew to Green Gables, where she falls in love with the farm and begs the Cuthberts not to take her back to the train station after Marilla insists that she must return. After an incident occurs involving a lost brooch, Anne is returned to the station, but eventually gets to come home and the three are reunited.

The show focuses on many important themes such as feminism, inclusivity, and equality, and touches on important issues such as bullying, self-doubt, and racism. It highlights the idea that we are all individuals, asserting that “different isn’t bad, it’s just not the same.”

Overall, the show gives off a powerful message of positivity and reminds viewers of the beauty of singularity. I absolutely adore the show and am anxiously awaiting the third season.

BTS fans from across the country flocked to the Citi Field in New York City this past weekend to watch the wildly famous K-pop group’s final performance in the North American leg of their ‘Love Yourself’ tour.

Tickets for the show went on sale on Aug. 17 and were sold out in under 15 minutes. A groundbreaking 55,000 of BTS’ ARMY filled the famous stadium on the night of Oct. 6, making BTS the first Korean group to perform and sell out a U.S. stadium show.

Fans of the group were at the field preparing for the show all throughout this past week. According to Billboard, around 1,500 fans camped out in the Citi Field parking lot beginning as early as this previous Monday.

After the concert kicked off with the band performing their song ‘Idol’, the group spoke to the fans, expressing their gratitude for ARMY’s support and their excitement for getting to perform at Citi Field. RM, the leader of BTS, ended the brief greeting by asking fans to be mindful of each other during the concert for safety.

The band gave a revolutionary show, performing their newer songs from their ‘Love Yourself: Answer’ album as well as some of their older hits.

The ARMY expressed their enthusiasm for the band by singing along and waving their ARMY bombs, which are the official light sticks used by BTS fans at any concert or performance that BTS does.

The group spoke to the fans in English for the majority of the show, but Jimin and Suga spoke briefly in Korean at the end, sincerely thanking their fans.

The band was set to perform in London on Oct. 9, commencing the European leg of their world tour.

Epic, riveting, compelling, adventurous; these are all words that can be used to describe the third and final Maze Runner film that hit theaters in late January.

Wes Ball’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure is the fast-paced, action-packed conclusion to the popular series, The Maze Runner. Based off of the book The Death Cure by James Dashner, the long-awaited finale to the franchise ties all of the loose ends that arose in the first two films.

Like other young adult movies before it, such as The Hunger Games and Divergent, Maze Runner: The Death Cure takes place in a dystopian society years in the future. The movie is centered around a group led by Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) who desperately try to free their friend, Minho (Ki Hong Lee), from WCKD, a government corporation created to eradicate a virus that has proved to be the end of the world. The corporation, though trying to find a cure for the deadly virus that has wiped out more than half of the world’s population, conducts tests on children and teenagers that are less than humane, and with the help of some newfound allies, the group works to steal back their friend and take down WCKD.

The film takes place six months after the end of the previous movie, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and the audience sees the characters in the same barren land that they left off in.

From the opening sequence, the film leaves its audience on the edge of their seats with nerves and excitement as the characters are engaged in a high-speed chase with a train that is transporting Minho and hundreds of other kids to the WCKD facility.

tube.hk

As a long-time fan of both the books and movies, I had high expectations going in, but I did not expect to be as utterly moved by the movie as I was. I was blown away by the emotions that I felt while watching the film. The complex characters and themes combined with the remarkable acting and cinematography easily made Maze Runner: The Death Cure my favorite movie of all time. Though it changes some elements from the books, the movie, for the most part, stays true to the original storyline, and satisfies all of the die-hard Maze Runner fans like myself.

The film is categorized as a sci-fi action film, but it is not all fight sequences and explosions. Many action movies nowadays tend to focus too much on the action and leave little time for viewers to get to know the characters and their personalities, but this is not the case with Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Throughout the film, the audience sees plenty of action and chaos, but also get to see many raw and heartfelt moments shared between their favorite characters from the previous movies. The emotional scenes in the movie capture the intensity of the despair that the group feels after their friend is taken from them.

The group is abruptly submerged in a highly dangerous mission to rescue their friend and essentially save the world from WCKD; a mission that could easily cause them to lose their lives. This is made even more heartbreaking by the fact that the majority of the main characters are only teenagers. These are things that would affect any real person going through them, and I was glad that the film chose a more realistic approach to the common ‘end of the world’ trope.

An angsty film such as this one requires a talented cast in order to have the targeted effect on its audience. Maze Runner: The Death Cure did an incredible job casting its main role, as Dylan O’Brien’s deep passion and impressive emotional range made Thomas the courageous and memorable character that he is. The entire cast was wonderfully chosen, and incredible actors such as Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito and Love Actually’s Thomas Brodie-Sangster brought real emotion and depth into the characters.

Though it takes place at the end of the world, Maze Runner: The Death Cure finds a way to paint stunning images across the screen. The film displays some truly breathtaking shots that perfectly encapsulate the tragically beautiful remains of a broken world.

Overall, the film is a stunning outro to the beloved series that has topped box office charts time and time again. It highlights many powerful themes such as teamwork, family, and the idea that you should always fight for what you believe in. If you’re looking for a movie to watch with action, heart, and well-developed characters, this is most definitely the movie for you.

Saves The Day is an American rock band that originated in 1997 in the state of New Jersey. They are well-known for their hit albums Through Being Cool (1999) and Stay What You Are (2001) which received very positive reception from both critics and fans. With darker themed lyrics combined with melodic hooks that catch the listener’s attention, Saves The Day has influenced many hit rock bands that will eventually make their own mark on the music industry.

Following their pop-punk release of the self-titled album, Saves The Day (2013), the band is back with a brand new album titled “9,” out of respect for the release being the ninth studio album officially produced by Saves The Day.

Saves The Day’s frontman, Chris Conley, took a different approach when he wrote the newest album. While their 2013 release featured more lighthearted songs with pop-punk vibes that differentiate the record from their past albums, 9 tells the story the band’s journey over the years. This time around, Conley sings of “walking the crescent moon castles in English sand” and “20 years go by like pages from a calendar blowing in the wind.”

From the early beginnings of the Can’t Slow Down tours to the current state of the band, Conley covers it all. The record’s run-time clocks in at about 44 minutes and features the song “29” that runs at about 21-minutes to describe Conley’s entire personal journey.

Below you can find the full tracklisting of 9 and a link to Saves The Day’s lead single for 9, titled “Rendezvous.”

Being the newest and biggest game in the franchise to date, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate generated massive amounts of hype across the gaming community. More players are jumping on board with Ultimate as Nintendo continuously shares new information on their hottest 2-D fighting game.

In the latest installment, Nintendo has focused on adding game characters that will appeal to most fan requests. Widely requested characters, such as the Metroid villain “Ridley” and Donkey Kong Country’s villain “King K. Rool” have seen massive talk over the internet after their revealed play-ability in the new game. Popular characters, such as Splatoon’s “Inkling,” Animal Crossing’s “Isabelle” and Castlevania’s “Simon Belmont” have also taken a large amount of positivity from fans. Other characters, characterized as “Echoes” for their particular design borrowing attributes from respective characters, have also received the Ultimate treatment.

This past Wednesday, a 4chan user shared an image of official artwork for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s featuring the game’s entire final character roster. The artwork was later shared onto the original poster’s Snapchat. While the image is fairly blurry enough to cause some difficulty for people to make out the character models in the artwork, multiple 4chan users were able to determine who and where the new unannounced characters appear in the blurred image. Take a look at the outlined image below:

4chan

The leaked characters from left to right appear to be Shadow the Hedgehog from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Banjo-Kazooie from Banjo-Kazooie, Isaac from Golden Sun, KOS-MOS from Xenoblade, Ken from Street Fighter, Mach Rider from Mach Rider, Geno from the obscure Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, and the Chorus Kids from Rhythm Heaven.

To further prove the original image’s authenticity, users have noticed an unreleased image for the upcoming movie, The Grinch, which is expected to hit theaters on November 9th. The unseen artwork of the Grinch appears in the bottom right corner of the original poster’s image.

Without an official confirmation from a Nintendo representative, the current leaked image will remain in speculation by online users until more information is officially given on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. in the future.

Back in late May, the quirky alternative rock band, Weezer, released a massive hit cover of Toto’s “Africa” after a campaign of fans who wanted to see their favorite rock band perform their favorite song. The campaign, led by Twitter user, “@weezerafrica,” reached it’s milestone success after Weezer finally released the hit song “Africa” following a cover of Toto’“Rosanna.”

Weezer’s frontman, Rivers Cuomo, discussed in many past interviews of a future project titled The Black Album. The Black Album was planned on being a successor to 2016’s hit The White Album, while contrasting itself from White’s beachy rock themes for a darker urban theme.

Cuomo stated, “The next album is going to feel like an urban environment, night-time and gritty and hopefully a lot more modern sounds, synthesized sounds, samples maybe. I like to break away from the distorted power-chord thing but it’s hard ‘cos it works so well.”

Due to 2017’s Pacific Daydream and “Africa” creating a delay for  The Black Album, many fans were left anxious for Weezer to unveil it’s new material centering it’s mysterious twelfth studio album.

This past Thursday, however, Weezer finally gave it’s fans a taste of what is to come for the upcoming LP. The single, “Can’t Stop The Hustle,” takes listeners into the dark and funky groove of Rivers Cuomo’s mind.

If you want to support Weezer and their upcoming The Black Album, download or stream the new single here.
