“Mustang” opens with the line, “It’s like everything changed in the blink of an eye,” and it’s appropriate. When the innocent beach play of five orphaned sisters living in small-town Turkey is misconstrued by the community as sexual deviancy, their uncle suddenly forces them to live in...

“Look up here, I’m in heaven/ I’ve got scars that can’t be seen,” starts “Lazarus,” the third track from David Bowie’s most recent and final album, “Blackstar.” Released two days before his death, “Blackstar” is a very personal requiem of discordant jazz and haunting lyrics...

On Friday night, the Physics and Astronomy Department hosted their first Friday Night Celestial Lights event of 2016.

Upon visiting the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum this winter, one may notice that the winter exhibitions seem dissimilar and dense at first glance. Guests are greeted upon arrival with a black clothesline that drapes the furthermost wall of the museum’s Main Gallery and in another area, a display...

The style hallmarks of auteur Charlie Kaufman, writer and director of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Being John Malkovich” and “Synecdoche, New York,” are all over his latest film, “Anomalisa,” co-directed with Duke Johnson. Self-conscious and ecentric, “Anomalisa” is...

You know them when you see them: long, colorful shirts, white Converse, possibly drinking a Diet Coke or another coffee beverage in a tumbler. The stereotypes are well known, but how much do you really know about the inner-workings of sorority life? Obtaining leadership experiences, service opportunities...

Smoking ban in vain, not designed for health

According to UTSA’s Tobacco-Free Campus webpage, there are no designated areas for tobacco use on campus. However, anyone who has walked in between the McKinney Humanities building and the Business Building on UTSA’s Main Campus knows that there is in fact an undesignated area where clusters of students...

Boardgames good for the imagination

Most of the time — as in the case of working, sleeping, or waiting in line—one’s freedom is limited by necessity. The exception to this is leisure time, the time during which you are free to act according to your will, that is, to do whatever you want. And that comes with a great deal of responsibility. Unfortunately,...

MLK Day forgets to remember America’s most successful socialist

Justice Lovin

January 26, 2016

On Monday, we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. I would argue that to some extent we did so in vain. The Dr. King we celebrate is but a shade of the man he was, the parts that are convenient; we remember his dream but forget his socialist principles. Near the end of his life Dr. King was planning a...

Tier what? Ambitious but ambiguous

Editorial Board

January 26, 2016

UTSA is hell-bent on being tier one. For the sake of one day being recognized among the best universities in the state (UT Austin, A&M and Rice, technically), UTSA has barreled towards the top, at all costs, and at times bulldozing elements that made it top-grade. In 2009, the Texas legislature...
