As the 2014-15 regular season comes to an end, the Michigan Tech women’s basketball team rests at 11th in the nation with an incredible record of 22-1.

Skating backwards

February 16, 2015 // 0 Comments

I grab the hips of Thimbleberry Slam and achieve her velocity as I pull past her, through the pack, past two of the other players and it’s me and Luna Stormborn. I approach the 112 on her back as she flails her forearm into the bridge of my nose. My knees falter as I check to see whether I have to exit the track (no blood, no play); nothing but ...

Knowing Deah, Yusor and Razan

February 12, 2015 // 0 Comments

If you are anything like me, you abandoned all hope of any other work yesterday that didn’t involve closely following the reporting and commentary on the Chapel Hill shootings of Deah, Razan, and Yusor. Since the man who murdered these young people was an atheist and I am too, I was paying special attention to my community’s response. That’s ...

The P.C. police are coming for you

February 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

In a recent article for Vitae, Professor Rob Jenkins entered the revolving debate on the ills of political correctness by pondering the scintillating question of “how do we decide what’s offensive?” Hmmm. On its face it’s just an innocent question, we all wonder from time to time how to determine whether something causes offense or is ...

Sarah Polley, Geeta Patel and other filmmakers who deserve much more

Fun fact: there has been only one woman to ever win an Academy Award for Best Director. It was Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker back in 2009. Besides Bigelow, there have only been three other female directors ever even nominated. The Academy Awards have been happening since 1929. 1929. Only four women. Ever. Let that sink in. As we have ...

Watch a thing: ‘Broad City’

January 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

While living in China I had limited access to the Internet. Google was hard to live without but the true struggle was not having access to television. Luckily, the Comedy Central app worked for the first few weeks and that is when I discovered ‘Broad City.’ I binged watched the entire first season and it was magical. Before moving to China, I ...

The best things about Sleater-Kinney’s ‘No Cities To Love’

January 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

This isn’t the first time I have expressed my love for Sleater-Kinney on UNDER_WIRE and it probably won’t be my last. However, this is really important stuff we’re dealing with. If you have being paying attention to any of the major music news sources, you know that 90s riot grrrl indie rock band from Olympia, WA, Sleater-Kinney, ...

On being irrationally embarrassed about learning guitar

January 20, 2015 // 2 Comments

I lived in Los Angeles over the summer and I am probably the only person who has ever moved to LA and found myself with a lot of free time. This is because I am a bit of a loner who absolutely does not want to go to the Lana Del Rey concert at the Hollywood Bowl “just for fun.” Anyway, I bought a guitar. It was actually like, a 12-year-old’s ...

#FeminismIsMTU

December 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

At Michigan Tech, feminism is still a scary word. Or rather, it is thought to be an outdated word. With the majority of the student body taking a stance that seems to say “feminism is over,” we have contentiously struggled at UNDER_WIRE to keep the conversation going. Because it’s not over. In fact, right now a whole new wave of ...
