Loathe him or hate him, Trump has been voted out of office, despite his insistence that the election was rigged. I don’t know about most of the Kenyon population, but I’m stoked. I haven’t had serotonin levels this high since… well… who knows? To keep the happy chemicals coming, I’ve curated a playlist dedicated to bidding you-know-who an enthusiastic “good riddance!” I may have questionable music taste, at best, but the following songs are standouts as far as emulating the feeling of euphoria upon realizing we’ll be kicking him out of the White House in a few short months.Continue reading
A lot of the Kenyon experience was unfortunately lost to COVID-19, including the wide array of student radio shows to tune into. The loss of a relatively seamless Phoebe Bridgers to Bon Iver to Led Zeppelin transition was undoubtedly hard to cope with.

Kenyon Men’s Basketball has had a great season, and as it comes to a close I can’t help reflecting not only on the gameplay but the sweet music that fills Tomsich during any time out.

That will be fine for sure. Continue reading
So, if you’re like me and you try to get breakfast occasionally, there is the morning trek to Peirce. The sun is blinding even on a rainy day, and once you get to the doors they are somehow stuck again. This is the problem we face at Kenyon: how do we capture the emotions of a particular experience? The feeling of walking in the fresh air from the first year quad to Peirce and the immediate drowsiness of the dim yellow light of the entrance? The sudden entrance into the liminal, timeless and clock-less space that is the servery? Well, boy do I have the playlist for you.Continue reading
