Feature DJ: Andrew Shores

ERETAndrew Shores, a junior in journalism and mass communication, says he can beat you and all your friends at Pokemon. He has also been working in radio since he was 14.

Shores hosts a program on Wednesday evenings called “Emo Rock/Emo Talk.” He also DJs on Mondays from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.

“I came to K-State on a campus visit last spring, and drove through Manhattan the evening before listening to 91.9 thinking, ‘Did The Get Up Kids seriously just come on the radio? This station is rad,” Shores said. “Some of the friendly people from Kedzie Hall directed me to the KSDB Studio where I spoke briefly with Jordan Swoyer. He was friendly, inviting, and told me everything the station had to offer. It made me really excited to get in the studio in the fall.”

Although he listens to a wide variety of music, Shores has always been fascinated with Emo bands from the 1990’s.

Movie Madhouse Film Review: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

girl_walks_home_alone_at_night2014 was a great year for vampire movies. Not only did we get Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, but Ana Lily Amirpour also released her own interpretation of a vampire tale with  A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. If you are like me, you have been biting your nails in anticipation for the wide release of this film. If you haven’t yet heard of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, here are some key elements:

  • Filmed in stunning black and white
  • Language is Persian (so you will have to read)
  • Features a gorgeous stalker vampire who is usually covered by a full chador (a long cloak)

Okay, so maybe that isn’t the best hook, but that shouldn’t detract from any interest in this film. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is fantastic.
