Here at USC I know that I can walk a mile to the staple center, take a twenty minute Uber to the Santa Monica pier, and take a five hour scenic car ride with some friends to Mammoth Mountain. Like my …

I am a huge movie fan, and by the transitive property a huge HBO fan. A couple of years ago HBO came out with the series The Newsroom and I latched on pretty quickly. Disclaimer: I’m not a TV critic, and my taste (however awesome) may not align with yours. For those of you …
