LIFESTYLE: The Hangover Cure

Lifestyle column, lifestyle column. This writing all the time thing is quite a bit harder than Hollywood makes it out to be. Wait, I think I’ve got it.

LIFESTYLE: Assault on Precinct 13

by A.G. Hurt

Well now that I’ve established myself as claiming to have some sort of legitimacy as a music writer, I think it’s time to branch out into other, more varied pursuits. Like food criticism, maybe. Or I could try my hand at technology writing, but in reality, I’m halfway to being a Luddite; I’m typing this on a keyboard fashioned from bark and leaves. What about relationship advice? Dear Austen has a nice ring to it. But alas, I’m bitter and despondent, and any of my answers would likely be far from desirable. Actually, though, despite this article not being about that, go ahead and send your advice questions (relationship or otherwise) to aghurt@umail.iu.edu. Maybe I’ll actually be able to provide some sort of a valuable input (probably not).

LIFESTYLE: The Melody Inn & The Toasters

by A.G. Hurt

I had this plan of a sort of triumphant return to the world of music journalism when I set out to work on this piece. Over the past summer, I interned (read: worked as a journalist for free) at an arguably successful music website. It was a good experience, all told. I got into shows for free, saw a combination of awful bands and shows I liked quite a lot and got an opportunity to write in a way I hadn’t done in quite a long time. With the start of school last fall, though, I let the internship fall by the wayside, disinterested in trying to cover multiple music venues and go to classes full time. But here recently, a friend of mine had asked for content for the Campus Citizen, I put two and two together, and there I was as a music reporter again.
