Posted July 26, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

The Rantouls are a saccharine trio from San Jose, Calif., and make way better music than your favorite 60s pop group ever did. The band first surfaced through San Francisco’s Chocolate Covered records after releasing some singles…

Movie Review: Battleship

Posted June 7, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison
