• Transcending the typical sci-fi flick: The PHOENIX chats with Wally Pfister

    I expected Transcendence to be action-packed, futuristic and scientifically fictitious. I anticipated big, nerdy words related to artificial intelligence that I couldn’t comprehend, phenomenal acting by Johnny Depp and brilliant graphics on screen. I did not, however, expect a heart-wrenching story of human love and loss, or to leave the theater with a pit in my stomach and questions of [...]

  • If the top 10 songs of the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ were a Loyola student…

    As someone who avoids listening to mainstream music, every time I look at Billboard’s weekly Hot 100 songs I’m astounded: “What are these songs? And who on earth older than the age of 16 is listening to this sh*t?” I ask myself, blind to the fact that, yes, there are (sometimes) great songs on the Billboard Hot 100. These questions [...]

  • Dining on the Line: The Big Cheese Poutinerie

    According to The Government of Canada website, “Canada and Poland enjoy close bilateral relations, including growth in trade and investments, increasing military co-operation and academic relations [programs].” While I will admit that I have almost no idea what this means, I can tell you that Canada and Poland are coming together in a very positive relationship at The Big Cheese [...]

  • The PHOENIX chats with the stars of ‘A Haunted House 2′

    “Fly larvae is actually a really good flavor,” Marlon Wayans said, joking about the excess amount of flies getting in his food on the set of his new movie, A Haunted House 2. Despite the flies and other obstacles that come with a low-budget film, Wayans and other members of the cast and crew made the most out of filming [...]

  • Meet the MIVA: Loyola’s path to glory

    Lions, Mastodons, Hawks, oh my. The team names in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association sound formidable enough, but Loyola Men’s Volleyball hasn’t had all that hard of a time keeping its conference foes at bay. The Ramblers’ victory over Ohio State to cap the regular season not only extended the team’s winning streak to 22 games, it also pushed their [...]

    WHO YA GOT? — Above is this year’s MIVA Conference tournament bracket. No. 1 Loyola starts its quest for the title on Wednesday, April 16. Winning the conference will give the Ramblers an automatic berth in the National Final Four.
  • Chicago’s Hidden Gems

    With finals right around the corner, most Loyola students will be settling into the IC and a dinner of delivery food. Even if students are lucky enough to escape the stacks, chances are they’ll be headed to an overcrowded, overhyped spot in the city. And there’s so much more to Chicago than Jimmy John’s and J.B. Alberto’s. Some of the [...]

    Nestled between buildings on East Randolph Street, the bright red exterior walls of the restaurant pop out immediately, catching the attention of those looking for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner.

  • Eavesdropping law overturned

    Break out the smart phones: citizens and professionals now have the right to take audio recordings of public occurrences — including fans yelling at sports events, debates in a park and loud conversations on the street —  after a strict Illinois law was declared unconstitutional. The Illinois Supreme Court decided in March to overturn the 1961 eavesdropping law, which required [...]

  • ‘God’s Work’ paints the story of a troubled childhood

    Remembering how we learned to love is not something we think about often. However, in God’s Work, Rachel remembers the moment clearly when she was 10 years old and holds on to the story for it to be told. The true story of Rachel and her journey has come to the Goodman Theatre in the new production God’s Work. The production [...]
