The Vista: Round 2

Written by Austin Schumacher; Media by Zach Bonner  It certainly has been a year of change when it comes to the usual Greenville College yearbook.  Bringing on a different style of format that has not been seen in ten years, the designers have decided to experiment with something new for the upcoming years.  Starting the “new” Vista this last semester in a magazine-style format, there was a bit of commotion ...

Ironman 3 Review

Written by Tyler Lamb; Media by Zach Bonner. Marvel has really made a name for themselves outside of the comic book realm with their (mostly)tied together cinematic universe. It all started out with the amazing, and to this day one of the best comic book movies of all time, Iron Man back in 2008. Phase one was finally completed with The Avengers last May. This May, we are treated with the beginning of Marvels phase 2, which will end with Avengers 2 but is starting with Iron Man 3. Will Iron Man be able to carry his own film after the very successful Avengers? Can he come back from the bomb that was Iron Man 2? The short answer, not really. ...

Ravenhill Delivers The “Soul”

Written and media by Jake Cannon. It’s hard to come by good rock and roll nowadays in the world of pop, auto-tune, and Lady Gaga. You can hardly find any truly good music with some soul. That’s where southern Illinois band, Ravenhill, steps in. Ravenhill has its humble beginnings in the lowly southern Illinois region, (in)famous for being a “quaint rural area,” according to the all-powerful Wikipedia. In an interview with Geek Sheek, front man Joshua Clifton said, “We started off with two of us and a friend in my living room after our other bands had ended with an acoustic [guitar], an air organ and a plastic tub just writing and experimenting with some songs for the fun of it.” Thus, Ravenhill was born. ...

Featuring your local Electronic DJ: Captive Portal??

Written by Austin Schumacher; Media by Michael Trieb. With the introduction of The Lab this year, I’ve started to see that there is a certain amount of interest in electronic music here on the GC campus. However, many of these talented artists are relatively unknown to the public. Therefore, in order to shed a bit more light on the subject, I was able to meet up with Zach Bridier (aka. “Electromatic” “Much,” “Sebon” or more recently “Captive Portal”). You can download his most recent Throwing EP for free. Zach is certainly a person who is not unfamiliar to the music scene and specifically electronic music. Having started working with basic loops in Junior High, he has been working on mastering his craft and creating his own sounds through high school and now in college. Using mostly programs like Pro Tools for tracking and mixing, he really doesn’t want to rely on just a computer for everything, but enjoys incorporating collaboration and real instruments and people into his mixes. Currently, he is splitting his focus between playing as the drummer for The Advocates, working as an audio engineer, and creating his newest project, Captive Portal. ...

What to Gather From the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer (or My Recent and Surprising Obsession with the Star Trek Universe)

Written by Logan Welliver; Media by Zach Bonner I never thought that I would be as excited for Into Darkness as I am right now. To give back ground on the subject, my escapades with Star Trek began in 2009, when the first Star Trek movie came out. Overall, I thought it was an alright movie; it had good production value, it was an entertaining movie, and given the fact that it has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, I think many people would agree. But not long after I had seen the movie, as with many other mediocre movies, it completely left my mind. ...
