So without further ado, here are the five biggest winners in music during 2018.

While the majority of students here are below voting age, that hasn’t stopped us from taking political issues seriously. Protests, political discourse and ideological clubs have become more and more commonplace in recent times. Despite this, I feel that the majority of students are not thinking for themselves on political issues.

Ever since I really started liking the NBA, Kobe Bryant was always one of my favorite players, after hearing just a small percentage of the stories in this book I admired his work ethic. When I think about Kobe, the first thing that comes to mind is dedication, and that’s what a lot of his new book, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play, is about.

I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical of Trench. The fifth album in the twenty one pilots discography would have to follow up the mega-popular Blurryface, which was the first number one album for the duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun.

The worst horror movie I’ve ever seen was “Paranormal Activity”. I saw it when I was fifteen, and all I knew about it at the time was that it had a whole slew of sequels so I figured it must be at least a little interesting or scary or fun.

When Sony Pictures announced that they would be introducing a solo film adaption to the famed Spider-Man villain Venom in May of 2017, they were met with excited responses. Ever since his meager introduction to the big screen in “Spider-Man 3” in 2007, fans have been eager to see a more accurate representation of the character.
