Queen has been an important part of my musical library for as long as I can remember. Frontman Freddie Mercury has always held a cloud of ethereal and mysterious presence in my mind, and everytime I listen to A Night At The Opera, I listen with so much curiosity for the raw creativity that went into making an album that was so revolutionary for its time and has yet to be paralleled, even 44 years later.
A new wave of liberal politicians have come out with a plan to help solve the global climate crisis. It is called the Green New Deal (GND). This is the new, ambitious plan to reform the American economy and reduce carbon emissions to zero in the near future.
Grab your running shoes, backpack, and hat because we are going on a great Pokémon adventure to catch every single one of them. Game Freak and Pokémon leaked the first images of the newest game in the works, Pokémon Sword and Shield, on Pokémon Day 2019, which marks the anniversary of the first video game released on Feb. 27, 1996.
The trailer for the 2019 reboot of The Twilight Zone features a series of disconnected images of famous television actors stumbling around, sleepily mumbling lines in voice-over. Some of the images are immediately engaging: a fuzzy doll’s head washes up on the beach; a little boy rides a tricycle through the White House; Tracy Jordan vapes in reverse motion. Some of the lines are suitably creepy — “It’s all the same number. What
are the odds of that?” says Adam Scott. I have no idea what this means, but the line’s breathy delivery, coupled with string-heavy, ticking background music, give the trailer a kind of eerie poignancy. It is effective at setting a tone, and I am sure it offers plenty for YouTube’s cottage industry of professional speculators to pour over. But the ending tag, “only on CBS All Access,” is what sticks in my mind most. However good the show turns out to be, I wonder how many potential viewers will be put off by the paywall.
