Trash Thursday: The Great British Bake Off

27 September 2018

  My name is Jamie Rodney, and I don’t like the Great British Bake Off. I understand that that isn’t quite as controversial a statement as it used to be, so allow me to qualify it. I don’t like the Great British Bake off. I have never liked the Great British Bake Off. The departure […]

Love Letter To: Brooklyn 99

22 September 2018

  I understand that this is a weird time to write about this particular subject, that it might have been more pertinent to talk about the importance on Brooklyn 99 earlier this year, when it was dramatically cancelled and then uncancelled, or later, when season 6 comes out.

  In the post A Level results day haze of last summer my Google Search History showed only one type of thing. “What to do in Freshers”, “How to have the best Freshers Week ever”, “Top 50 things you shouldn’t forget to do in Freshers Week”. I was obsessed. After all, you only really get […]

The Back Door of the Fringe

15 August 2018

Stop the BOP

2 August 2018

After a long week it’s finally Friday night, so what are your plans? Maybe you’re after a low key night at one of the many pubs and bars in town; there might be an event on at the Vic; or maybe you feel like dancing. But the only real club in St Andews is the […]

Tracks for Conquering Cape Cod as a Californian

19 July 2018

For the Massachusetts coastal elites, a slow paced, languid lifestyle is a fundamental as the lobster roll. The summer inhabitants of Cape Cod take life with a gentle wink, their sailboat printed shorts shrugging at life’s gravitas. Arnold Palmers flow, golf balls fly, and tanned arms reach for more oysters. Here’s an essential blend of […]

What to listen to while running

2 July 2018

I spent far more time than was probably healthy choosing a subject for my first article as Editor of Star News. The plan was to give you all some deep and intelligent analysis of all the cool and interesting music I’m listening to, but I don’t listen to cool and interesting music, and I’ve never […]

Social Media over the holidays

18 June 2018

The post-exam world that St Andrews students currently live in is fraught with danger, from minor inconveniences (such as doing without the 601), to truly terrifying issues (such as having to get a job).
