My Summer’s Highlight

The biggest highlight of my summer was going to a Jazz and Blues club in San Francisco called Biscuits & Blues. I was invited to join my sister for my birthday weekend. I am interested in live performances, and this was the first time I was able to see someone perform the Blues music genre live. The performer was a nineteen year old male from Mississippi named Christone Ingram, better known by his stage name Kingfish. He is a Blues guitarist and a singer and he caught my attention on a … [Continue Reading...]

March Mania | KSSU Picks

Recently, CHVRCHES released a cover of The 1975's "Somebody Else" BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge”! We totally love this cover and it evokes the same kind of emotion that The 1975 have when performing the song. Head on over to BBC 1's website and skip to about 2:10:25 to hear the track! Altered Carbon is an ambitious sci-fi, Bladerunner themed movie. It explores the future without the possibility of death and income inequalities in a dramatized way. Many found this series an underwhelming … [Continue Reading...]

PS4 Spider-Man Review (As a New Yorker)

Nana-nana-nana... Spider-Man! Recently released PS4 exclusive Spider-Man has gotten the internet raving about it's newest edition to the Superhero video game genre. But has Insomniac Games captured the essence that is web-swinging? With reviews circulating the internet I thought the best way to provide an authentic review, is to review it in my alter ego persona, Donny the Don: Professional New Yorker Extraordinaire! (Side note, I’ve never been to New York) Hey! I'm Swingin' Here! Hello, … [Continue Reading...]

My Visit to the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room

Recently, I visited the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room here on campus. I was initially surprised AS I thought it would just be the small space of the tea room but that space was actually on display in a larger room. It reminded me of a stage because of the raised platform and it being on display for the rest of the room. The one idea I would associate my visit with is Time. When you first enter and sit down, you are given time to quiet your mind. We sat in silence, to let the rest of the world and … [Continue Reading...]

11/18 Football Game

Did you all catch the football game yesterday? If not, you missed out on a great game. We won against Davis! Our winning score was 52-47. It was such a close score, but our team did a great job. They showed great team work, and it finally paid off for this semester. I did not pay attention to the football game's of last season, but I heard there was an improvement this season. I believe it, we won seven games out of eleven. I don't know if it is because of our new players or what but I am very … [Continue Reading...]

“Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t”

This is one of my favorite Jay-Z lines of all time. It’s so damn hard and so true. Well kind of true. Okay, not really true at all. But I still love this line. This blog is not about rap though, it’s about basketball and numbers. I love basketball-reference.com. It gives me all the knowledge I want about basketball on one website. But I did notice something … [Read More...]
