Granted that this is a broad over-simplification, there are typically two kinds of musical artists: those who achieve popularity and success on the back of one breakout hit, and those who slowly build a following by consistently releasing quality songs. Chicago-based electro-soul producer Manic Focus (birth name John McCarten) rests comfortably in the latter category. Classically trained on the piano at a young age, McCarten has been blending hip-hop beats with funky bass lines since 2011, releasing a new album each year that improves upon the last. While many of his early releases sounded like emulations of more successful artists in the genre, such as his Liberated Music label-mate GRiZ, the release of his fourth album Cerebral Eclipse , available for free download on his SoundCloud page, demonstrates that Manic Focus is establishing a sound much more his own.
Throughout Cerebral Eclipse , Manic Focus makes interesting use of samples that highlight some of the best elements o...

Reality TV wrong to run when life gets too real

There is always doubt as to how real reality television is. For the second time, a TV show produced by TLC has fallen into the camp of “too real.” Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been canceled in light of the central character’s mother’s unconfirmed dating of convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, the man who allegedly forced oral sex onto her oldest daughter at the age of 8, was charged with the sexual exploitation of another child over the Internet as well.
Though it is tempting to criticize the stars of TLC for their controversial lifestyles, we should instead be skeptical of a network that continues to make celebrities of “salt-of-the-earth” people, then forcibly removes that stardom from the unlucky few who happen to be living humanly flawed lives.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been under scrutiny since its inception, documenting the eccentric “redneck” life of beauty pageant queen Alana Shannon and her family. The former Toddlers & Tiaras star, nicknamed “Honey Boo Boo,” wa...

As the world becomes more connected through advancements in technology and communication, interdisciplinary and collaborative studies become increasingly significant in the scientific community. Philip LeDuc, a professor of mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon studying the mechanical aspects of cellular communication, is one of many researchers involved in this type of collaborative research.
LeDuc led a research team along with Lance Davidson, an associate professor of bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh, and William C. Messner, department chair and professor of mechanical engineering at Tufts University School of Engineering, which used a microfluidic control system to understand how mechanics play a role in how cells communicate.
“It’s a fantastic collaboration between Davidson, a developmental biologist, Messner, who is interested in control theory from a mechanical perspective, and me, who is interested in cell mechanics and applying microtechnologies to b...

The student environmental organization Sustainable Earth is launching a divestment initiative for Carnegie Mellon’s assets. Sophomore civil and environmental engineering major and Sustainable Earth Co-President Jack Fogel summarized the initiative by saying, “The divestment campaign is trying to promote Carnegie Mellon to take its investments out of fossil fuels.”
The organization is finalizing a letter, addressed to President Subra Suresh and Carnegie Mellon’s Board of Trustees, which calls for the university to freeze any investments into fossil fuel companies and to completely divest from the industry within five years. Their request comes on the heels of a similar successful movement at Stanford University, where the university has, as of May, committed to not investing in any coal companies after a recommendation from their Student Advisory Panel on Investment Responsibility and Licensing.

On Sunday, the Carnegie Mellon men’s and women’s soccer teams hosted the University of Rochester in a University Athletic Association (UAA) conference double header.
The fourth-ranked women’s team started off the day on a good note as they recorded their fifth conference victory and 11th shutout of the season with a 5–0 thrashing of the Yellowjackets.
Senior forward Savina Reid started the scoring parade in the 26th minute with her 10th goal of the season coming off of a one-timer over the keeper coming from a cross from first-year forward Sienna Stritter. The Tartans weren’t content to have just a one-goal lead and kept the pressure on when first-year midfielder Tori Iatarola took a shot in the 30th minute. While Iatarola didn’t connect with the back of the net, she did manage to hit the crossbar, and first-year midfielder Morgan Kontor was able to knock in the ensuing rebound for her third goal of the season.
Carnegie Mellon kept the pressure up with Stritter determined to ...

Guardians of the Galaxy
Friday, Nov. 7 — 8, 10:30 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 9 — 8 p.m.
In Guardians of the Galaxy , all of your weirdest and wildest fantasies come to life: Andy Dwyer ripped and fighting aliens, Zoe Saldana trading in her signature Avatar blue skin for Gamora’s green shade, Vin Diesel being used solely for his body (he’s a CGI tree that can only say three words), and Bradley Cooper being Bradley Cooper. All these elements added up to an enormous amount of buzz this summer (For real, people would not shut up). But it wasn’t for nothing. Guardians of the Galaxy is a movie that has a golden ratio of chuckles to action. You come out of the movie feeling light, happy, and slightly confused — happy and light because Marvel essentially announces there will be a second one and confused because the end credit scene was more than baffling. You will need to Google it. I had to.

Alright, I like The Flaming Lips. From Transmissions from the Satellite Heart , to Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell , to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots , the band aggressively pursues a non-traditional songwriting style while retaining a mostly traditional rock band aesthetic.
But with their new release With a Little Help From My Fwends , I wonder if Wayne Coyne has disappeared way too far up his rear end, or if the band’s studio time looked more like the concerto recording scene from Walk Hard . This compilation of Beatles songs is confusing to say the least. From production style changes that occur so frequently you run the risk of suffering from whiplash, to freaking auto-tune, this album takes the term “experimental” and uses it as an excuse instead of an opportunity.
I’m not going to harp on the Miley Cyrus collaborations on the album, because they ended up being exactly what you’d expect. Lets take for example, the Dr. Dog/Chuck Inglish/Morgan Delt collaboration o...
