GOULDTHORPE | It’s a New Year Ahead for Animation! Who Should You be Watching?

We’re two weeks into the new year, and already film studios are putting out their work. Last weekend, Hidden Figures managed to replaced Rogue One at the top of the box office while earning critical praise. By contrast, Monster Trucks did as well as expected — Paramount had taken a $115 million write-down last September, and the movie has in fact bombed. Already we’re having highs and lows, and we’re only through three weekends! The rest of the year will surely give us some fantastic stories, especially in animation.

The Sun’s April Concerts Preview

Ithaca Underground Presents: Naked Noise #7
Saturday April 9, 9 p.m
at the Community School of Music and Art
It’s no secret that Ithaca is home to a thriving underground music scene. We’ve got hip-hop, punk rock, indie darlings and everything in between, all just crawling out of the woodwork. One of this town’s strongest areas, however, is noise music. Abrasive to some, vital to others, there’s little arguing that noise music is something to talk about, especially what’s churned out on a constant basis by Ithaca’s own luminaries of the scene. This Saturday, April 9, Ithaca Underground will hold its seventh annual celebration of this town’s staggering strength in the genre of noise.

Football Ready For Ivy Battle

In the two teams’ last six meetings, the football team has failed to beat the Crimson. Fortunately for the Red, the last win over its Ivy counterpart came at Schoellkopf in 2005, when Cornell won 27-13. The Red (2-1, 0-1 Ivy) will look to repeat that home performance this Saturday at 1 p.m.
Regardless of the Crimson’s (1-2, 1-0 Ivy) recent success, senior linebacker Ryan Blessing looks to the 2005 results for motivation.
“I really think we are confident going into this game,” Blessing said.
