Bo Burnham’s ‘Inside’: A Comedy Special That Might Make You Cry

This special is a true reflection of Burnham’s immense talent. It’s a messy hour-and-a-half that makes you understand what it feels like on the set: a room in LA, retrofitted with more cables on the floor than is likely necessary.

The announcement of Bo Burnham’s new comedy special “Inside” on Netflix came as a bit of a shock after he publicly spoke about the frequent panic attacks he experienced on stage.

Leaving Afghanistan: Extremism Flourishes Despite US Occupation

From Opinions: "Though I’m sure the U.S. government would like Americans to accept that jihadi extremists like al-Qaida and its subsidiaries were doomed to eventual demise after the “War on Terror,” militant groups have actually experienced growth during the failed war. Because of this, Biden’s decision to take troops out of Afghanistan may not be as consequential as some politicians claim, and the War on Terror should act as a cautionary tale against the United States’ ineffectual foreign policing."

When Will We See the First Great Video Game Movie?

Hollywood is putting a lot of faith in video game movies. A film based on “Mortal Kombat” was released on April 23, an “Uncharted” adaptation is coming out soon and even a “Metal Gear Solid” movie is in the works. The genre has come a long way since the days of the widely panned “Super Mario Bros.” and “Street Fighter” movies of the mid-1990s. But what exactly has changed, and are we due for a video game adaptation masterpiece any time soon?

Video game movies are more common now than ever as games have become more narrative driven and creators have turned gaming for inspiration.

Hell’s Kitchen Free Store Is Priceless

They say nothing in life is free, but clearly, they have never been to Hell’s Kitchen Free Store. Nestled in a vacant storefront on 45th Street and Ninth Avenue lies the Free Store. Longtime Hell’s Kitchen resident Chana Widawski teamed up with Bailey Sperling, a senior at the Fashion Institute of Technology, to create this free community store. The pair met through the Buy Nothing Midtown West, Manhattan, NY Facebook group and banded together to bring sustainable solutions to their community.

The Free Store is more than just a store. It’s a communal space for gathering, connecting and exchanging ideas.
