The Dose: Dallas Fan Expo 2017 was an enjoyable mess

From the moment you arrive at the Dallas Convention Center, there are lines – lines to get a parking spot, lines to get through doors and lines to get up the escalator. It’s a never-ending strand of people bumping and pushing their way through the crowds. In one line, you see Harry Potter push aside Batman; in the other, you see a zombie holding hands with Princess Peach. To your

The Dose: An exploration of the Big Easy

On the French Quarter in Louisiana, creole townhouses and cottages line up, painting the neighborhood with colors ranging from navy blues and vivid purples to mixed teals and raging reds. Yellows make the streets pop like the Louisiana music that harmonizes the community. Tourists click heartbeats of photos on their cameras while wandering the streets. Professional photographers can blend in like a tourist just by entering the Quarter. Segways make a

Hanson’s throwback set at SXSW

For those of us who grew up in the 2000’s, Hanson is a household name. It was nearly impossible to go through a week without hearing MMMbop somewhere. The show was packed from front to back with 30 year old women, wanting to relive their glory days when boy bands were all the rage and Snapchat wasn’t a thing. It was a cutthroat environment, unlike many of the more relaxed

Media is the problem, but also the solution

In a time of such division within our society, it’s simple to just continue to think you’re right and everything’s okay. But social media and the Internet have allowed us to ostracize each other, pick our own facts, and develop blocks of people completely enthralled by their Internet pact, like the one that elected Donald Trump. The CEO of Upworthy, Pariser is a left-wing political and social activist concerned mostly

The Dose: Lane 1974: The heart-wrenching face of great cinematography

Lane 1974: The heart-wrenching face of great cinematography By Adalberto Toledo From the start of Lane 1974, you can feel just how much Lane will lose as the movie goes along. An air of unbridled free-will in the beginning is smashed by the various life-changing events Lane must go through as she becomes a woman.

Weezer brings the heat at SXSW

The chants began early in the evening, hours before Weezer would grace the stage. That didn’t stop the crowd from a little premature celebration, however. When you think of SXSW, Weezer isn’t exactly the first band that comes to mind. The festival typically hosts more indie artists, although it has progressed to include a lot of hip hop and rappers in recent years. However, a rock group as legendary as

New Politics steals the show at SXSW

If there was a single band I’d want to see live until I die, it would be New Politics. The band has a tough slot opening for Weezer on tour every night, and SXSW crowds aren’t always kind to opening bands. It was pretty obvious that most of the 900 people packed into Brazos Hall for the Weezer show hadn’t heard of New Politics. However, it didn’t take the band

The Dose: ‘The Disaster Artist’ pays respects to a cult classic

Sitting down in Austin’s Paramount Theatre for its premiere of “The Disaster Artist,” it was clear from Seth Rogen and the Franco brothers’ intro that they wanted to document “The Room” in an affectionate way. Granted, the making of “the ‘Citizen Kane’ of bad movies” is ripe for biting satire. But James Franco – who directed – culled some amazing talent to tell this absurd story through a genuine love
