Message from the Editor

As SFC2s, Sosa and I must bid farewell to Journalism Society, after three incredibly enjoyable years. Over two years of running the Society, we have sold nearly 1000 papers, received nearly 40,000 views for our 160 articles, and raised nearly £1000 for charity. But we have not measured our success by these figures; the comments which we have received personally about individual articles and the influx of people asking to write for us after we publish each edition have been the most rewarding aspects of our jobs.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us, helping to grow the society from four members to our group of over sixty budding journalists. In particular, a special thanks must go to the very dedicated Mr Wilkinson in the Marketing Department. As an ex-journalist himself, his expertise has been invaluable.

Most of all, however, we would like to thank the readers for buying our papers and for our talented journalists for providing such great reading material. All of our Editors have been brilliant to work with and we hope that they will continue to be involved next year.

Megan Thresh will be taking over as Editor-in-Chief next year, along with a team of ‘Tofe Ayeni, Hilary Fung, and Feyi Adegbite to run the Society. We wish them all the best of luck.

(Relatively) New on the Music Scene: Haim

By Rebecca MacKay

As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

I admit, I haven’t been a fan of Haim for long: I haven’t been following them from conception or anything, though, looking back, I probably should have been. In fact, when their new album first came onto British shelves I was utterly dismissive, believing it to be yet another hipster attempt at individuality from an all girl band once again attempting, but failing, to assert themselves into the music scene.

Film Review: Oculus

Film: Oculus (2013); Directed by: Mike Flanagan; Genre: Horror; Cert: 15+

Rating: 4/5       

Mirrors. An easy way to make an audience jump out of their skins as something supernatural appears unexpectedly in a mirror. It’s boring and predictable, yet somehow still manages to prevent us looking into a mirror for the next few days. However, despite the main supernatural plot feature being an evil mirror, Oculus manages not to overuse this trope.

Metal for Dummies

Metal for Dummies

By Mrs Dowdall and Jess Blackmore

As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

Here is a quick, 10-step programme to get you listening to the heaviest, most gruesome death metal around! We recommend listening in order if you are new to this world, as by number 10 it is fantastically hardcore.

Note: This list is by no means comprehensive. Entire genres of metal have not been included because we don’t like them as much. e.g. Power metal, Symphonic metal, Black metal, Goregrind or Screamo (no, we didn’t make those up).

Where is Chart Music Going Today?

Cheryl Chow takes a look back at the last ten years of music and has compiled a timeline of the top hits of the previous ten years (2003-2013). We hope that this commentary provides some more “throwback” memories, continuing on from Mufti Day last week. What do you think about the music of today? Do you think that we’ll be dancing to these tunes in our old age?

I’m a Celebrity

By Charlotte Jiang

(As seen in Pegasus Pages, December 2013)

I am sure that it has come to the attention of many of you that the thirteenth series of ‘I’m a Celebrity; Get Me Out of Here’ was released recently – if you didn’t know, then I’d say that you are perhaps living in a hole.

Psychoanalysis of ‘Coraline’ – The ‘Uncanny’ and the Familiar

Coraline_poster

By Sarah Yoon

Film: ‘Coraline’ (2009)

Rating: 4.5/5

Flickering moonlight, a creaky step in the shadows, and an appearance of scrawny black cat. These are the staples of Tim Burton and Henry Selick, the co-creators of ‘The Nightmare Before the Christmas’ who are the masters of creating weird, disturbing fairytales which are a bit “off”.
