Spring Music Preview: Indie Rock Favorites Return

Spring is a time of rebirth (side note: can we please start calling the second semester of the school year here the “Spring” semester rather than “Winter”? Spring: Rebirth :: Winter: Death). The days grow longer. The temperature warms up. Seasonal affected depression rates go down. There’s a lot happening. Among these many goings-on in…

Superbowl?! Surely You Can’t Get More Than a Strike!!

Well, wasn’t that all low key? If there’s one thing you guys do well it’s restraint and modesty at sporting events. I particularly like how you don’t have giant jets of flame shooting 50 feet into the sky as the teams come onto the field through smoke and paper and god knows what. Oh and…

Play ‘Fairytale of New York’! Christmas is back!

It’s back. It is. It’s unbelievable isn’t it? As soon as the tree comes down, the wreath’s off the door, the world warms up a bit in the Spring and BOOM, it hits you right in the mush. No, not a new hockey season (what is up with that, by the way?), but Christmas. Or…

Ask The Harbuster

Life at HBS, like Lindsay Lohan in 2004 or 2012, can be difficult, volatile and totally uninsurable. But, unlike Lindsay Lohan then and now, life at HBS is something we at The Harbus can help you with. Are you anxious about academics, confused about campus, skeptical about socializing, or adamant about alliteration? Our resident Harbuster,…

ND beats NJ in RC Championship Showdown

In a battle between two of the school’s best flag football squads, undefeated ND came out victorious in a 52-40 showdown against a formidable NJ squad. It took only four total plays for both teams to score in a preview of the “track meet” to follow. Section D quarterback Flynn Cochran posted a Manning-esque QB…

Outside the Bubble: Trampoline Dodgeball in Boston

Trampoline dodgeball may just be the single best contribution to our favorite recess sport since Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn brought us the American Dodgeball Association of America. Imagine combining the gravity defying backflips of trampoline (apparently now an Olympic sport) with the childlike excitement of a good old-fashioned dodgeball game. As the new D’s…

Confessions of a Newly Minted Boston Sports Fan

Coming from London, one of the first things in the “Miss This About Home” box was the season ticket at Arsenal. Shouting and screaming, accusing the referee of all manner of unspeakable things, and hurling abuse at opponents were a staple part of any week from August to May. How would the devil be released?…

The Killers Go Big & Go Bruce on Battle Born

I’d love to be a fly on the wall when The Killers first start discussing a new album. Imagine the tension in the room as Ronnie Vannucci, Dave Keuning, and Mark Stoermer wait for lead singer and principle songwriter Brandon Flowers to arrive! “What do you think it’ll be this time,” one must ask the…

Diary of a Popcorn Connoisseur: Fall Movie Preview

It would be pretty easy for me to give you a nice little present of a fall movie list. I could drone on about the expected awesomeness of Spielberg’s LINCOLN or the simultaneous nausea and bliss that will accompany Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED. I could babble about how PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 will probably give you indigestion…


Redefining Fine Dining: The Hong Kong Restaurant Review

I am responsible for writing a restaurant review of The Hong Kong. Only 18 short hours ago, I was surrounded by students wearing a haphazard mix of Southern, Texan, and Canadian Tuxedo type clothing, in what was ostensibly the Midwest Club’s Barn Dance on the legendary Third Floor of the same establishment. Now I find myself walking through the front doors again, all-too-soon.

The Entrepreneurial Class

The Class of 2010 started school in the worst recession since the Great Depression. Finance was a blackhole. You could walk the hallways of Spangler and see the tired faces of another round of interviews. Jobs were hard to get. But it was also an opportunity. A number of students took the leap of faith…

Letter from the Editor

I thought I knew what I was getting into when I took over from Kay as Editor-in-Chief of The Harbus five weeks ago. The truth is that I had absolutely no idea. Five roller-coaster weeks and many sleepless nights later, as I present the last issue of the year, I am humbled by the abundance…
