Oh no You Didn’t… Wear That

This season ushers in some pretty offensive fashion violators. Don’t be one of them.

Are you often afraid of fashion because you don’t know what’s in style?
Have no fear; your article queer is here.

Fashions you should not carry into this year begin with peplum. The peplum is going into retirement. An issue with this style is mistaking its admirers for mothers to be. Also, if you want a two-piece outfit, then wear a two-piece outfit. Remember, peplum dresses were not meant for every body type. The purpose of the peplum is to give what one doesn’t have. If you are a petite woman with the desire to appear fuller than you are, this style is for you.

Following the lead of fellow Top Dawg Entertainment artist Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q delivers another solid album for TDE with his solo major label debut effort, “Oxymoron.”

“Oxymoron” continues what has already been a solid early year for West Coast artists after the release of fellow Los Angeles rapper Kid Ink’s “My Own Lane.”

Yes, Shi-Mai

Restaurant has great sushi. Standard price. Large portions.

Recently I had a hankering for sushi, so I searched Google for places in Carson. That’s when I stumbled upon Shimai Sushi.

It’s located near campus, in the city of Compton, tucked away in an industrial district.

The restaurant is very casual with a flat-screen television mounted on the wall. On my recent visit, a NCAA college basketball game was on, so I was happy. Shimai isn’t a standard sit-down restaurant; it’s more of a sushi-on-the-go. But it doesn’t sacrifice freshness or taste.

Oscar Picking for Dummies

It’s movie season and everybody has an opinion. Including me.
By Chad Arias

It’s Oscar season, so expect the unexpected. Every year there are head-scratching picks and face-numbing upsets. This year will be no exception.

My picks are merely a primer for intelligent conversation with your peers. They don’t need to know you didn’t watch a single nominated flick before the March 2 awards ceremony.

Best Picture
The Oscar juggernauts this year are Gravity and American Hustle, each sporting 10 nominations, with 12 Years A Slave close behind with nine. The Best Picture award will undoubtedly go to one of these three films.

Grand Theft Auto V Lives up to the Hype

Rockstar Games sends current gen out with a bang.

The developers at Rockstar Games may have finally reached the technological limits of the current generation of console gaming with Grand Theft Auto V.

Four years since the last GTA incarnation, gamers find themselves in the familiar surroundings of San Andreas (where the series’ 2004 version took place), which is a fictional portrayal of Southern California.

Recently, while passing time between class and work, I decided to check out a burger place I had heard good things about.

Eureka! Burger is a small, upscale California-based burger chain with nine locations throughout central and southern California. I ate at the Hawthorne restaurant, known as Eureka! Tasting Kitchen, because it was the closest to me.

Experience Pakistani Tradition

Al-Watan offers authentic food for a good price.

Mixed Tandoori is a delicious combo of beef and chicken.

When I want the taste of real Pakistani and Indian food, I go to Al-Watan in Hawthorne.

As soon as you walk into Al-Watan the employees treat you like family, perhaps because it’s owned and run by the very friendly Mumtaz family, who are from Pakistan.

Located on the corner of 136th Street and Inglewood Avenue, the restaurant is ideal for a family meal or a gathering of friends. The restaurant has around 15 tables and the atmosphere is casual.
