Currently clocking in at a $2.7 billion worldwide gross, 2009’s sci-fi smash hit “Avatar” single-handedly proved to audiences and Hollywood itself that 3D films could be both popular and bankable. Since December of last year, there has been an exponential…

How to transition from winter to spring fashion

It’s springtime in Cleveland.  It’s cold out, then it’s hot out, then it’s cold out, then it’s hot out.  And then it’s warm out, but still kind of cold. Now, I may be the only one, but the only sensible question I ever feel the need to ask myself  about this little temperature yo-yo is…

That's what See said: The spoils of my very busy week

This past weekend I was really busy. The rest of last week: ditto. What I’m trying to say is that I didn’t come up with an awesome and entertaining column topic for this week. Don’t fret though my wonderful nation of loyal readers (I bet you guys didn’t know I made you your own country…

Tim's Turn: The pros and cons of being famous

I love the Cleveland Browns as much as anybody. Because of this, and I know “hate” is a strong word, I hate Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger more than anybody.

Say goodbye to single-sex dormitories

For the…

OurView: Last chance to dance, romance, advance and pee your pants

Letter to the Editor: Wake up and grow up

As a John Carroll University alumnus, I was extremely disappointed to discover you published Mr. Bob Seeholzer’s bitter tirade about reverse sexism (3/25/10 issue).   It was of no more intellectual substance than a drunken Facebook blog (which, it seems, is about the highest form of communication I see many young men and women possess).  Perhaps…
