‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP’ shows Billie Eilish’s emerging talent in full force

(04/03/19 3:31am)

Slurping noises introduce pop artist Billie Eilish’s new and first album, “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?” Giggles are accompanied by Eilish stating “I have taken out my Invisalign, and … this is the album.” Weird ASMR or Eilish having fun — the 14 second introduction sets the tone for the rest of Eilish’s album. Brooding and weird at times, the 14-track album carries an underlying taunting tone that shows Eilish is here to have fun. 


Style for Saturday: Beer Bike Fashion Tips

(03/27/19 4:38am)

Beer Bike is a full-blown cultural phenomenon, and with that comes a diversity of choices for style. But when forced to wear the same shirt as 300 of your friends, setting yourself apart with a unique look on Beer Bike morning can seem difficult. However, being extra in every manner — from dyeing your hair to cutting up your shirt — is acceptable if not encouraged on this special holiday. Here are some fashion trends to follow:





The future of hip-hop and R&B is female. Here’s who you should be listening to.

(03/27/19 3:09am)

Since its conception in 2007, hip-hop magazine XXL’s “Freshman List,” which showcases rising stars in hip-hop, has featured six women out of 112 features. That measly 5.3 percent shows just how little attention has been given to women in the industry — and that when given, these women still face obstacles of colorism and racism (Iggy Azalea was the first woman to make the “Freshman List”). Similar problems exist in rhythm and blues — despite a history of female stars, the industry heavily favors men; on Billboard’s 2018 R&B songs chart, only seven out of more than 50 artists were women. The time for women to shine in their well-deserved spotlight has finally arrived thanks to increasingly democratic methods like platform streaming and social media.  Female artists in hip-hop and R&B have used these mediums as launchpads to meteoric success. 



‘At least i have you, egg.’ brings whimsical student art to the Media Center

(03/20/19 2:21am)

A series of illustrations drawn onto eggs have replaced the old film advertisements that typically line the walls of the Rice Media Center. They provide a quirky first impression for visitors and serve as the introduction to “At least i have you, egg.”, the 2019 Mavis C. Pitman Exhibition. 


When I Get Home: A masterful, artistic ode to Houston

(03/06/19 5:28am)

Music can sometimes feel transcendent, but rarely does it take a materialized form. With When I Get Home, contemporary rhythm and blues artist Solange Knowles incorporates live album experiences, challenging the notion that music is a medium made only for passive listening. An homage to Houston and feeling at home, When I Get Home wraps listeners up in its engaging sound and delivers key messages along the way.


Rodeo Houston 2019: Who to see, what to eat

(02/27/19 3:33am)

Fried bacon-wrapped cinnamon rolls, “minnepumpkin” pie, a $2.17 million prize pool — who says Texans don’t have culture? It’s time to put on newly-bought cowboy boots and sweat in jeans because the Houston Rodeo is in town. A conglomeration of carnival, cowboy sport and musical performances, the three-week-long Houston Rodeo is a spring must-go for both native Texans and wanna-be Texans alike. 






Peers and professors can work to prevent imposter syndrome

(02/13/19 4:33am)

Imposter syndrome — that deep sinking feeling that hits when you feel way out of your league, accompanied by cold sweat and anxiety. The first time I felt imposter syndrome was during O-Week, when my peers talked confidently about their four-year plans and career paths. I’ve gone on to feel it almost every day of my Rice career, and studies prove that I’m not the only one.
