Steve Secular is currently a senior at Binghamton University majoring in English. He writes about television and music for the Pipe Dream, the university’s newspaper, and is currently working on his undergraduate thesis about post-postmodern gender identities, as seen in everything from How I Met Your Mother to Bridesmaids to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has a hard time understanding anything in life unless it’s explained through convoluted basketball or TV-related analogies. He also listens to an inappropriate amount of OutKast.
Andrew Doscas recently graduated from Syracuse University. If they made a version of Trivial Pursuit wherein the categories were baseball, comics, music, movies, and history, he would win…every time. He prefers brown gravy with his French fries, and could live off of pizza bagels. Some things he finds to be unendingly amusing: communism, vegetarianism, the 2012 Miami Marlins, pre-teen skateboarders, Matthew Lillard, the 27th amendment, and Velcro sneakers. If he could choose one celebrity to narrate his life, it would be James Woods.
Ian Goldstein is a graduate of the University at Albany. He wrote for the Albany Student Press as well as Albany Student Television. He hopes to one day write professionally, but for now, he will pretend that he is more important than he actually is. While certainly a fan of pizza bagels, Ian doesn’t believe he could live off them. Eggs and whole wheat bread would more than likely suffice. And Shredded Wheat, the honey nut kind.
Rafael Chaiken is a graduate of Brown University and a native of Albany, NY. He covers movies, music, and books. He’s also a trumpet/keyboard player and an avid Wikipedian.
