Entertainment Review August 16, 2012

Posted August 16, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

Man, John Dwyer and company has just been decimating it with psychedelic rock the last few years. I’m all like, just chill out and let me breath for a minute. Their latest release, 2011’s Carrion Crawler/The Dream, included a bunch of long, constantly mutating guitar-centric numbers that I should probably review because of chronological proximity…

Sinister

Posted October 18, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

It feels like horror movies are judged on two criteria: their capability of frightening the audience and their merit as a film, like with plot and character development and tension and stuff. Having said that, Sinister is among the best of modern horror cinema, with every scare justified and every scream satisfying. The story has…

Posted May 3, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

If anyone has recently tried to drive from the front gate to the flight line, you know that it can be quite an interesting feat to get there.

Movie- Hit and Run

Posted September 6, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Bill Waterstreet

When my date this last weekend requested we see the new movie “Hit and Run”, I was momentarily excited. What could it be about, a court drama involving a car accident or a romance with elements of a good action romp? Perhaps, an abusive father finally gets what’s coming to him and has to flee?…

Know Yourself and Seek Self Improvement

Posted November 8, 2012 by Col. Robert Kuckuk

I qualified Expert last week at the pistol range. First time I had ever shot Expert on the pistol range in my 26 years in the Corps. This is remarkable (to me anyway) because I barely qualified as a Marksman last August. Colonels don’t have to shoot at the range, but I went because I…

Opinion: Forming it up brings me down

Posted May 24, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

The “fifteen minutes prior” rule service members are so used to (if in theory rather than practice) always struck me as a bit arbitrary.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Never Mattered

Posted September 20, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

So it’s been a year today since the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and the Department of Defense is still functioning. Cool. For some background: DADT, created in 1993 under the Clinton administration, circumvented the ban on homosexuals serving in the military by allowing them to serve under the condition they do not reveal…

Posted January 10, 2013 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

YUMA, Ariz. – In the wake of a recent tragedy, everyone from politicians to the talking heads in the media to the average Joe on the street has been talking about gun control. So far, the one measurable result of all this talk has been an explosion in the sales of firearms people fear may…
