  • Lady Tigers defeat their former victors, end season with new title

    November 19, 2015 at Dripping Springs High School was the big send off for the Lady Tigers on their way to the semi-final and final State championship tournaments. Many of the people of Dripping Springs came out on the sides of driveways and onto the town’s streets in order to show support and help wish […]

  • “Spectre” improves upon the Bond name

      Get up, brush off your personally tailored $3,000 Versace suit, reload your handgun, and go see the newest installment of the 007 franchise, Spectre, as soon as possible. Filled with all the over-exaggerated action, supermodel-esque women, dream cars, soulful music, and somewhat confusing and all over the place plot line we’ve come to know […]

  • Friday, work or fun?

    Let’s discuss a subject… responsibility versus procrastination. One way or another we’ve all procrastinated at least once, no matter how perfect you think you are. It’s good to take responsibility. Man (or woman) up and do your work on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. But what about Friday? Personally, not doing work on Friday and […]

  • Fiddler on the Roof Casted

    After their marvelous production of Romeo and Juliet, the DSHS theater department will be back again with a new show, a musical called Fiddler on the Roof. Very different from Romeo and Juliet, this production is more lively and involves singing and dancing. More work is to be put into this production for its atmosphere. […]

  • Coats for Kids

  • Sanity not found

    Do you ever have those days where you feel like you’re losing your mind? You lost the thing again and you’re pretty sure it ran off with your sanity. Maybe it’s under the bed with the monsters. It’s all in your head, what head? It ran off with the thing, and oh no watch out! […]

  • One lux

    I don’t like sleep, and sleep doesn’t like me. So instead of my head finding a pillow at night, it meets an inky indigo haze in the clouds and jaded parades around my suburban streets. I find alabaster in midnight astronomy. My freedom is gifted by darkness, wrapped in moonshine, the small hours giving green […]

  • The faces we hide

    When do we let our façades fall away? Do we take them off at the end of the day? Or do we keep them on until they fuse? Become something we can no longer lose? Do we let them become one with skin and bone, something a part of us, no longer just shown? Do […]

  • Call it to the mountain molehill, for we are all dead in the long run

    Salted wind slaps my face and venomous spit swirls on my tongue, all velvet and biting. I swallow wine. I think about my liver pickling. I hope that when I die I’m diced up into cubes and grinded by fossilized ocean creatures, because why does it matter anyhow? Spotlights searching for blackness in the void […]

  • An atrocious issue

    As I sit here having a table full of crap thrown at me, I think of how this vacation went wrong. How I probably shouldn’t have called the chef an ugly prank. But it happens, right? And it was most likely unappreciated when I dropped my neighbor’s cat off the balcony, but the thing was […]
