Nadia Vulvokav — played by the flame-haired Natasha Lyonne — is a lonely, cynical, and even sardonic video game programmer on the brink of wanting to end it all. In the opening scene, she stares at herself in the bathroom mirror as an invasive knock pounds into the ears and minds of the viewers. Nadia might hear the knock too, but her gaze, pointed directly at the camera, feels empty and distracted. Nadia is not having the time of her life at her 36th birthday party, and she wants us to know it. She lives a reckless life, taking whatever joint is offered her and sleeping with whomever might cross her path. “Staring down the barrel of mortality always beats fun,” Nadia jokes, not knowing that she will be fatally hit by a cab that same night while drunkenly searching for her cat, Oatmeal.
“I’ll do anything to have good packaging for the way that it looks on my shelf. It makes me so happy and makes my bathroom look fancier,” says freelance stylist Summer Miller in a New York Times featurette on the rise of boujee soap. She’s not alone — Miller is one of many millennials who has both grown up in the digital age and become enamored with capturing the perfect aesthetic. Pretty soap is just one facet of this obsession. As social media influencer Alexander Atkins suggests, his generation “seems to be more aesthetically driven [than previous ones].”
The interviewee requested to keep his name unknown but shared that he is a first-year and prospective COS major.
Things to Do in Princeton this Week: Senior Thesis Edition (Mar. 10–16)
As spaces on this campus go, Richardson Auditorium strikes me as possibly the most underappreciated gem our university has to offer. When donating the money to construct Alexander Hall, Harriet Crocker Alexander envisioned the space to be a “cultural temple,” with depictions of the likes of Shakespeare, Dante and Galileo surrounding the auditorium.
A man squints into the distance of an arctic tundra, his fur hat buffeted by wind. A woman fiercely pilots a helicopter. Three hikers charge through dead grass at the summit of a mountain, logos faintly visible on the upper left arms of their knits. “Our mission is to free people from the cold — no matter where they live — and empower them to experience more from life,” Canada Goose states on their Indeed page.
Langar: A Community Meal (Mar. 7) at Murray Dodge Hall. Langar refers to the practice in Sikhism of providing a free meal to visitors, regardless of background. The student organization Sikhs of Princeton invites all students to Murray Dodge for a warm, free, vegetarian meal this Thursday.
With its unexpected turn into more serious subject matter, the Tiger Confessions Facebook page transformed from a place of light-hearted compliment sharing into a valuable platform for grievances of all kinds. Unsurprisingly, however, we are all still looking for ourselves within its postings—which is why a series of comments about the exclusivity of dance companies recently caught my eye.
At the end of FaceTime conversations with my parents, they casually but ever so intently ask, “Have you been getting a lot of sleep?” Just as casually, I respond, “I’m averaging six or seven hours” — minus the really late nights when sleep was nonexistent.
Read on for the Prospect’s round-up of the best cultural and artistic events this week!
William Keiser ’19 and James Jared’s ’19 dance thesis show real lies is jam-packed with the kinds of youthful emotions college students love to both remember forever and forget the next morning.
Studying abroad is like that whooshing feeling of freedom you get when you start college: no one knows you peed your pants in seventh grade; no one cares that you were a nerd in high school; no one knows anything about your past. After five weeks in Russia’s capital city, Moscow, I’m basking in this anonymity. It’s nice to recreate myself again.
Questlove reclined comfortably in his seat on the McCarter Theatre’s stage on Friday evening. He is an artist who can feel at home in any space, and his multifaceted career is a testament to this ease. Questlove, who initially earned fame as the drummer for his band The Roots, has since explored everything from music production to writing to the culinary arts. Fittingly, McCarter advertised his visit as, “Living a Creative Life: A Conversation between Questlove and Imani Perry.” Questlove’s whole life appears concerned with conversation: an experiential back-and-forth. Onstage, he never skated around a question, but listened and responded earnestly. Questlove accepted a hefty honorary degree from the University’s Class of 2019 on Friday night, but his gift to the audience was refreshingly intangible.
If changing regular milk for almond in your latte isn’t hipster enough already for you, Small World Coffee’s recent special drink is even crazier concoction. Made for Heart Health Awareness month, “A Shot in the Heart,” is a curious combination of espresso shot, foamed milk, and beetroot juice.
With second semester now fully in motion, it’s time to bury all the L’s we took last semester within the depths of our mind and look toward a fresh start.
Samay by Naacho South Asian Dance Company (Feb. 21–23) at Frist Campus Center. Naacho South Asian Dance Company invites audience members to travel through time by watching their annual performance this weekend. A group that prides themselves on “popping, locking, and dropping with a dash of South Asian spice,” the show is bound to be hours well spent for those who come to see it.
Triple orgasms and ordinary men named Steve. Patronizing German marriage counselors and burgeoning queer identities. Colorful illustrations, workshops, abuse, childbirth, miniskirts, flooding, gynecologists, and tampons.
Valentine’s Day — the holiday of Hallmark cards and commercialized love — is here. For some, this annual occasion may mean a wonderful evening with a significant other. For others, it will be a time to bask in singledom. Regardless of your relationship status, a movie always makes for good company on Valentine’s Day. Here are our top choices of romantic movies for the holiday. They are organized by categories of candy.
Whig-Clio Senate Debate: The Rise of Tiger Confessions (Feb. 13) at the Whig-Clio Senate Chamber. The first Whig-Clio debate of the semester will be surrounding Tiger Confessions — the now ubiquitous Facebook page where students can anonymously submit thoughts, ask for advice, or spill gossip.
