A surprising maturity in The Lego Movie

Presenting the Fall 2013 Pioneer Editors and Managers!

Shelly Le September 13, 2013
This afternoon was our first editors critique meeting and I can't honestly say how proud and honored I am to work with such dynamic, fun, dedicated, and good-looking (If I do say so myself!) individuals. Our majors span from BBMB to Economics, to German Studies and our non-Pio interests include soccer, watching Jeopardy!, and coffee making. We don't get a whole lot of sleep, we eat way too much pizza on production night and some of us (err, I mean Sean) have terrible taste in music. Anyway, I'm rambling. Our first print issue hit stands this week, but this is our formal hello. Hello!

A Movie Reviewer’s ‘Hair’y Adventure

Nathan Fisher April 11, 2013
For almost two years I’ve had the awesome job of writing movie reviews for The Pio—Friday night: the theater with a tub of popcorn; Saturday morning: Zip off a short review. Easy! Never thinking that I would have to work and write a real article, I was shocked to see an email from my editor asking me to look into a movie called “HairBrained” that supposedly had something to do with Whitman. Sounded interesting. So armed with a Web page for the movie, I naively set out on my first attempt at investigative journalism.

Someone’s ACTUALLY reading the Pio!

Wait, what, this happened? How could it be? Is someone reading this right now? Astounding!
