Robyn copes with loss on ‘Honey’

(10/31/18 1:39am)

It’s been eight years since Robyn released her last studio album, 2010’s “Body Talk.” The intervening period witnessed the profligacy of Miley Cyrus, the genre-hopping of Taylor Swift, the ascendance of The Weeknd and the global dominance of Adele. Ariana Grande, then a Nickelodeon star, is now a tabloid fixture; Lady Gaga, then an insurgent pop star, is now an Academy Award contender. The void Robyn left — sophisticated synth-pop — was never filled, although Gaga’s failed “ARTPOP” and Lorde’s underestimated “Melodrama” tried.

I didn’t even think that they would ever become “older.” They were always, always capable, and it never occurred to until very recently that they are regular humans too.

University alumnus and director Chris Farina has reached critical acclaim with his documentary films for decades. From the exploring the roadside residents of Pulaski Highway in “Route 40”  — his first film made with Reid Oechslin — to diving into the Charlottesville community in “West Main Street” (also made with Oechslin), Farina has captured in film the everyday lives of everyday people in the communities that matter to him. Another of his projects, “World Peace and other 4th-Grade Achievements,” showcased the life-changing work of Charlottesville teacher John Hunter, who invented the now widespread World Peace Game to teach elementary schoolers about global relations.

As the leaves begin to change and the temperature starts to drop, there's nothing like a warm drink to sip on the way to class. Coffee is great but expensive, and too much of it can give you the jitters. A great substitute that is cost-effective, delicious and low-calorie is tea. I’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to your perfect cup of tea and included a few of my favorite types and suggestions.
