Up Your Valentine’s Day Game: The Best Music to "Study" to

By Keanu Ross-Cabrera

Like that research paper last week, Valentine’s Day kind of snuck up on me this year (pro-tip: always read your syllabus). 

Now, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. It’s a day of love, and there’s no love more tender than self-love, so all you single folks need not RSVP to the big pity party (EC 1220) because today is a day for you too! Unfortunately, whether you're in a relationship or or not, you still go to Columbia University and as it so happens, that most amorous of holidays (right behind Hanukkah) occurs on a Sunday.

Maybe you’re a mature, responsible adult. Maybe you’ve done all your homework and will actually be able to enjoy that Sunday. But chances are you’re like the rest of us and procrastinated by rewatching Parks & Rec for the third time (it’s important to de-stress, ok!?).

So Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday. You don’t need to cast aside your romantic aspirations (that tub of raspberry sorbet isn’t going to eat itself after all), but you’re going to have to keep in mind that, at some point or another on Valentine’s Day, you’re going to have do your work.

But just because you’re going to be doing work on this special, Hallmark-sponsored holiday, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, right? Because you can always take a break from that work for some studying.

You can study by yourself! You can study with your significant other! You can even study with a stranger or (if you’re adventurous) in a group!

Pro-tip: Study Groups, while great in theory, can be logistically challenging to organize and participate in, as well as often times awkward and inefficient.

Studying is a perfectly healthy, natural part of the college experience. Some study multiple times a day (such stamina!), some not at all (and that’s ok! It’s your choice), some even cram it in right before class. So this Valentine’s Day make sure you include it in your busy schedule.

Whether alone or with a partner, in your room or in Butler Stacks (you animal!), there are many strategies which can enhance the study experience. Now, while you can try finding different positions or new and exiting locations, why not consider and often overlooked element of the study experience? That’s right, I’m talking about the music.

Music can provide the atmosphere, set the mood, and even cover the awkward sounds of human interaction, but it’s important you have the right music to study to, especially on Valentine’s Day. Sure, you might already have a playlist you like, or a Pandora station, or awkward silence (which is fine, you do you), but why not jazz it up? Shake it (your study playlist) off? Try something fun and new?

But, of course, you don’t want to have a song that will kill the mood. Sure you can find study-appropriate songs through trial and error, but that sounds time consuming (though potentially fun), and why do that when you can simply learn take our advice? After years of thorough research, I’ve compiled the top three songs to study to. Take a listen below.

And, as always, when with a study-buddy, check-in with them to make sure music’s something they want too. Consent is important and some people don’t like studying to music.

Survivor - “Eye of the Tiger” (1982)

Studying can be really, really fun. But sometimes, especially when you’re studying late at night, you need a little something to help you power through the fatigue so you can finish what you’re working on. That’s when “Eye of the Tiger” comes in. Put this towards the end of your mix, when, to quote renowned wordsmith Marshall Mathers, your “arms are heavy, knees weak, palms are sweaty,” just when you’re thinking of quitting or slowing down, bam! You’re Rocky, back in the ring, ready to give it one more round.

Warning: May cause feelings of intense patriotism.

John Williams - “Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)" (1980)

Maybe you haven’t done cardio in a while. Maybe a few minutes into your study-sesh you’re breathing a little heavier than you should be. Maybe you’re starting to question your life choices (like daily Kornet’s). Not to worry, Johnny W.’s got your back with a stirring track that not only provides a steady, driving beat, but will subconsciously associate your lack of cardiovascular endurance with someone who’s powerful and awe-inspiring. Instead of seeming weak and flabby you’ll be tall, dark, and handsome. If you’re worried about your early-game staying power, then this song is a must have.

Bonus: If/When your partner says, “Wow, I didn’t think you’d be so good at that” (or something to that effect), you have a perfect opportunity to whip out, “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” Let’s face it, you’ve really been saving that one. Win-Win.

Klaus Badelt - “He’s a Pirate" (2006)

If your studying’s gotten stale and repetitive, inject a little swashbuckling adventure into your half-hearted page-turning. Badelt’s sweeping score is epic in nature and inspiring. Get out of your comfort zone a little and try something new, but do be careful of carrying on too long. Being “the fastest ship in the Caribbean” is not necessarily a good thing, unless you can get where you need to go, and there’s something to be said about carrying on too long, when the weirdness just sort of becomes old. That being said, this track is definitely a must-have. Add it to the study-mix, wait for it to come on, and get read to board that vessel and pilot home into a safe port.

The Top 5 Trends from NYFW That We Still Can't Get Over

By Alison McQueen

Even though Fashion Week is behind us, we're still itching to incorporate these trends into our current and future wardrobes. Here is a run-down of five Fashion Week styles and ideas that we're still swooning over, even a month later. We dare you to jump the gun and try them all throughout the winter season!

Trend: Pajamas for All Occasions

As Seen At: Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Public School

If you have ever wished that you could roll out of bed and walk straight to class, this trend is for you – if you sleep in silk nightgowns that is! Quite a few designers put pajama-like clothes on the runway this season. Both Calvin Klein and Givenchy went feminine and lacy, sticking to neutral blacks and whites. Others, like Alexander Wang and Public School, dressed up silk, pajama-like shirts with edgier bottoms for more a daytime look.

Trend: Orange is the New Black

As Seen At: Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone,

Whether your style is sporty, like the zip-up shift dress at Lacoste, or funky, like, off the shoulder ombre dress at Prabal Gurung, orange is the color of spring 2016. The common factor that these designers stuck to? Keeping the rest of the look simple: natural makeup, simple shoes and accessories, and loose, flowing hair.

Trend: Hemline Fringe

As Seen At: Opening Ceremony, Edun, Christian Siriano, Tory Burch

While Fringe itself isn’t especially revolutionary on the runways, designers collectively agreed on a new twist this season: hemlines. Opening Ceremony went for a chunkier, minimalist fringe that was a continuation of the dress while Christian Siriano went for a luxe, full fringe which stood out on the runway. At Edun, even pants had hemline fringe!

Trend: Long Skirts with High Slits

As Seen At: J. Mendel, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, 3.1 Phillip Lim

Long skirts went sexy on the runways this season. Both DKNY and J. Mendel took the mid length skirt and added some fun by cutting high slits so just enough leg was visible. At Marc Jacobs, Floor length skirts were cut up all the way to the hip for more wild, sexy look. The good news for this look is that all the kinds of designers jumped in on this trend, from crazy Marc Jacobs to minimalistic DKNY, so those looking to emulate the style can surely find a look that fits their aesthetic.

Trend: Not-So-Traditional Ruffles

As Seen At: Delpozo, Jason Wu, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, 3.1 Phillip Lim

All over the runways, designers modernized the tiered dress. For Proenza Schouler, that meant wide, diagonal ruffles placed sparingly. At 3.1 Phillip Lim, ruffles were more minimal, adding spice to sporty tops. Jason Wu went more traditional with sheer and feminine ruffled skirts. However, Delpozo came out with the biggest showing, putting big, bedazzled ruffles on skirts and dresses. Throw away your preconceived notions – ruffles are totally wearable for spring!

Olivver the Kid Gives “Many Fucks”—And Here’s Why

By Sydne Wheeler Larsen

“Why do you think you’re here?” Olivver asks himself, posing a question a friend once asked him. His answer? “To help.” It’s rare to find a musician who has such humility as Olivver. He’s bringing something to pop music that is woefully lacking: pure, so-honest-it-hurts humanity.

Who is this guy? That’s what I marveled about while we spent the morning on a park bench in Central Park, watching school kids skip by, petting Buster the dog, and fielding the odd glance from older couples who were intrigued by Olivver’s colorful, full-sleeve tattoos. I quickly learned that this Olivver, an L.A. transplant with pink hair and lax overalls, is as sincere as the man in the music who sings: “I did it for you, and I’d do it again”. This lyric comes from the bridge of his latest single, “World on Fire”, where he offers to burn down his friend’s prison of vice in order to save them from their own destruction. Olivver the Kid has “many fucks” to give about life, and here’s why.

This is an interview for a college radio station. You’re here for CMJ [College Music Journal’s Music Marathon]. Do you want to talk about college for a bit? Mhm, yeah! I love college, and I think that college is very necessary. I think that it’s really where I found myself. I was a different person before I went in and after I went in—I was an English major for three years, and then I went to New Orleans and I was a music business major. I dropped out with three weeks left. [To tour with The Neighbourhood.] I actually went back last year and taught four classes—guest-taught four classes for music business.

Do you think that having that time off, getting into the music biz with The Neighbourhood and then being able to reel it back in and have reflection time, do you think that’s been helpful too with how you go further with Olivver?Yeah that’s one of the reality checks for sure. That was a big one. Even going back, I grew up in hardcore bands and punk bands. I played a thousand shows before I was ever in The Neighbourhood. To nobody—To go from that, to a massively successful band, and come back down from it?...It’s humbling. But it tastes better—the minimal success that I have in this project tastes better. Because it’s mine. You know what I mean?

How did you work out the “Purge” Video? Either the video itself or the personalities, the subconscious people. There’s six of me, and all those people in the “Purge” video are all parts of my subconscious. Lucy is the feminine part of my subconscious. Harvey is like my dad basically. It’s all just how I viewed myself at different points in time. My friend has a tattoo on him that I love—it’s intense—but it says “I hate myself” on his stomach. And whenever anybody goes, “Why do you have that tattoo?” He says, “Cuz sometimes I hate myself.” All those people were how I felt about myself and you can see throughout it that not all those people are negative. “Purge” was about me, all the negative things that I think about myself, I’m purging them. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iOaHbkIWoM] We were talking in one of my classes the other day that for women, it might be easier for them to navigate all these different niches and personalities than men. I’m very self-aware. Like I walk into a room and immediately, I’ve looked at everybody in the room already. I know exactly where I am, I know where the fire exit is. And I’m very aware of, like, I don’t want to ever be rude or imposing, or have my body language be wrong, or look at someone the wrong way.

Even that far? Yeah. That’s different than most males I feel like. Typically. Going to high school, for me at least, I played football, but all the other guys on the football team didn’t give a fuck. “I don’t give a fuck, I have no fucks to give,” that’s a popular saying. And I’m like, “Oh I have A LOT of fucks to give, I give many fucks. I care. I care about everything.”...That level of intensity about giving a shit, that’s what I feel like separates me from other people. You know what I mean? Yeah, I care.

Your next EP is called The Boy Who Cried Wolf, which is a reference to the Aesop fable. You said that it’s also a storyline - you like story writing and poetry. How are you using the Aesop fable, or not using it? The whole EP is about—it’s very literal talking about this fantasy world: these woods and these two people in the woods. But it’s a metaphor for whatever your fear is, or your addiction. If you’re a drug addict, “the woods” is your addiction.The main character is in the woods—and then he gets out. As the story progresses, he sees a friend, somebody that he cares about, go in. And so “World on Fire” is right around the time where he’s like, “I’m gonna go back in and try to help my friend and try and save my friend so that they do not succumb to being a wolf”— to whatever their fear is, whatever their vice is. It ends on a bittersweet note; it ends on a, “I can’t help you, you need to help yourself,” kind of thing.

The Boy Who Cried Wolfis out now! Go rep my bud Olivver the Kid over on your select music services

Sometimes, celebrities just really suck at Twitter. And other times, they kill the tweet game. Keep reading to see what we mean.

Cher The hilarity of Cher’s tweets lies in her indiscriminate use of caps lock, unrestrained emoji usage, and the fact that a lot of them seem to make absolutely zero sense. However, her Twitter is rife with political and social commentary; if you’ve ever wanted to know Cher’s opinions on Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and ISIS, her tweets talk about them, among many, many other things. Plus, the shoutouts to her “chickadees" make you feel you’re part of something much greater than yourself.

Martha Stewart Barnard alum Martha Stewart’s Twitter may just be the strangest but most hilarious thing on the planet. If you happen to be a die-hard Stewart fan, you’re in luck, because the painfully detailed captions on each photo she uploads let you know exactly where she is, what she is doing, who she is doing it with, and, sometimes, what she is wearing while doing it. If you don’t stay for her grandma-on-Facebook style tweets, stay for her inspiring disregard for the use of periods.

Jenny Slate It is not long before you find a tweet by comedian/actress (and Columbia alum) Jenny Slate that so accurately describes your life that it makes you feel a little less alone in the world for whatever weird thing you do. Her tweets are just the right mix of emotional, shameless, and relatable. Whether she’s deciding whether to wear a bra to an open house or experiencing various types of wardrobe malfunctions, Jenny reminds us that celebrities are truly just like us.

Keough Novak Keough Novak is The Office writer B.J. Novak’s fictional portrayal of his 16-year-old sister. If it sounds absurd, that’s because it is. Her superficial, distinctly millennial personality is clear even from her bio, which includes the phrases, “Keep Adderall Legal,” and “Lana del Rye.” Her gripes about Snapchat and clever pop culture commentary make you forget that she’s a fake teenager whose thoughts are actually those of a 36-year-old guy who never even had a sister.

Rainn Wilson If you’re looking to hear more from Rainn Wilson’s character from The Office, Dwight Schrute, his Twitter is probably not the place to go. But Rainn Wilson—the person—has a Twitter full of funny, clever quips and comments on society ranging from pronouncing the word “niche” to the level of happiness in clams. The twists he puts on the strange and interesting observations he makes will really make you think and look at things in a different light.

First Year, First Impressions

By Emma Yee Yick

I have officially been living in this place for a month. One whole month and I can hardly believe how fast time has gone. By now, the “summer camp” feel of NSOP has worn off and I have mastered the basics of being a Barnard student: learning my way around campus and actually making it to my classes (tunnels included), remembering to always hold up my ID when I enter residence halls, finalizing my first schedule, maneuvering the various dining halls, honing the art of stocking up on fruit from said dining halls, and acclimating to the whole communal bathroom situation. I have yet to become a professional subway rider, however (I still have to use an app on my phone to figure out where I am and I still get freaked out about getting left behind at a station on a particularly busy train), but I’m working on it.

So in proper, first-year fashion, I am here to provide my initial thoughts and impressions on all this newness that has become my life.

  1. It’s been so long since I have had to introduce myself. I have met more people in the span of these four weeks than number of students in my high school. Granted, I did come from a rather small high school with around 110 people, but still with this, I conclude that introducing yourself to a few hundred people in such a short span of time is tolling. Every time I would eat with a new group of people, or participate in an activity, I knew what I was in for. A series of larger than life smiles and name exchanges that I knew for certain I wouldn’t remember the next day.

This brings me to my next thought on college so far.

  1. For a while, back in August when I was still gung-ho with the introductions thing, I was eager to latch on to people quickly in hopes of making friends. Because after all, how was I going to survive these next four years without an amazing group of friends? But just as quickly as that fad came, it went, and I realized that in time I would meet “my people.” Now as October rolls around, I can safely say that the kickass friends I hang out with now were made naturally, through mutual interests, interesting conversations, lots and lots of laughs, and most importantly: forced-introductions-free—it just took some time.
  1. The only part of my college experience so far that I extremely detest is something that I have come to know as the “three in the morning call of nature.” I’m not sure if this is an “only Emma” thing, but it basically involves me, being forced to wake up at ungodly hours of the night/morning to pee, and then proceeding to walk down an entire hallway to take care of this issue. It happens on a regular basis, despite my feverish efforts to drink less liquids before bedtime and my making sure to use the bathroom right before I sleep. But almost every night of the week, without fail, I am woken up by an uncontrollable urge to pee. I try to just sleep it off, but that never works. So I manage to pull myself out of bed, making sure to keep my sleep mask covering about ¾ of my eye vision, and I zombie-walk my way down the hall and onto a toilet seat. I apologize for anyone who has seen me/has tried to talk to me in this state.
  1. Lastly I want to talk about Barnard. Unlike many of my peers, I never got to visit Barnard before I arrived on campus this August. I remember my first few days here, everyone was already talking about how much they loved Barnard—and don’t get me wrong I was excited too, but I didn’t love it yet.

I definitely “loved” Barnard (or thought I “loved” Barnard) when I applied and chose to go here, but as goes with any virtual or cyber relationship, it wasn’t an immediate overwhelming feeling of adoration when I finally came face to face with it. After all, it’s common knowledge that love at first sight is a farce. So, for awhile I felt unsure of my choice. Almost everyone I met gushed about how much they loved everything about Barnard so far, leading me to wonder if I would ever love it as much as they did. One month in, I can say that while I am not in love with Barnard yet, I sure am falling in love with it. Barnard is my safe haven, from the craziness that is NYC and from the huge community that is Columbia. Barnard is home to a comradery of incredible, intelligent, and empowered women. Women who I am lucky to call my friends, mentors, and role models. And finally, if I am sure of one thing, it is that Barnard is the place for me. Here’s to the next four years!
