ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
The world of Electronic Dance Music has lost one of its most popular and successful young disc jockeys due to an apparent suicide. Swedish DJ-producer Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, passed away on April 20, as confirmed by his family and his agent. Avicii, who was only 28, is another addition to a list of musicians lost too early in life.
As someone with a love of art and learning, museums have always been one of my favorite ways to spend a day. Growing up in Southern California, I have learned to love all the amazing museums that the diverse city of Los Angeles has to offer. Between working, going to class, studying for finals, and writing papers, there ends up being little time during the school year to set aside a day to visit a museum. Luckily, summer gives us the perfect opportunity to take the time to catch up on all the exhibits we have maybe missed throughout the semester. Here are some well-known and some unusual exhibits and museums in the Los Angeles area that are perfect to visit over the summer.
It has been a long year. We’ve gone through tests, presentations, homework assignments, projects and group projects. As gamers in college, it’s hard to sit down and really get in a good session. If we’re lucky, we can get in a nice two hours on a good day (although I do know that a lot of us will play more than that). Especially near the end of the year, we might not have much time to devote to our games. The end of the year also means one more very important thing: school is almost over. We only have three more days of classes, then finals, and BAM, we get a well deserved vacation. This means we will have several months to relax and spend time doing everything we couldn’t do during the year. And yes, this means playing video games for 12 hours straight until our eyes bleed.
