A Swan Song Four Years In the Making

I am treating this swan song as if it were my commencement speech. It is funny that I never really sat down to write this; in a way, it has written itself. I have been writing these words in my head for the last four years. Since the first day I laid eyes on Providence College from the dirty window of a taxi puttering up Huxley Ave.

Tangents and Tirades

Cook will always be my baby. Let me just put it out there: I adore David Cook from American Idol. Normally, I tend to not partake in the Idol hype that ensues each year, but this year, David Cook serves as the sole reason for my exception. Not only do his devilishly handsome emo-good-looks make me swoon every week, but he is ridiculously talented in terms of his vocal range and abilities to rearrange songs and make them sound like Billboard 40 top hits.

Find Your Voice and Keep Using It

I have spent a lot of time during my tenure as a Commentary staff writer staring at blank Word documents, but I think that this article may be the hardest I have ever had to write. The swan song legend is one in which mute swans of mythology sing a heartbreakingly beautiful song before they die.
