Death Grips- The Money Store

Posted September 20, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

In the YOLO era of hiphop, where autotuned voices and superficial production run a muck in club-ready beats that fade in and out of memory like a boring dream, it’s comforting to know there’re still demented individuals in Sacramento, Calif., who are hellbent on laying out some of the most disturbing sounds this side of…

Listening to Superiors

Posted December 20, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Zachary Scanlon

There is something to say about a lower enlisted Marine with an opinion, and that is they should have a limited one especially when time is of the essence. For most young Marines in the Corps words like, “We don’t pay you to think,” have been said to them on more than one occasion. There…

Opinion: Mainting a combat mindset in the face of complacency

Posted April 5, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

As I return to the office from a week honing my skills with a rifle, I am reminded of how much of a desk jockey I have become, wasting away, staring at a computer and worst of all, complacent. I sit with my back to the door, staring at a…

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…

Opinion: Wandering the Maze

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. With the ever-changing road closures, you are often forced to endlessly weave through a veritable maze until you can finally emerge somewhere near where you need to…

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…
