A former Olympic figure skater, Josh was injured in a tragic triple Salchow McTwist attempt and resorted to a petty life of crime. During this period of lawlessness, Josh trained a group of ragtag teens to skate, eventually forming a troupé that would tour the world robbing art galleries under the guise of an icetravaganza. The good times would not last. Foiled by Spiderman during an attempted heist in New York, Peter Parker agreed not to turn in Josh if he would take photos for him at Dinos games. We hope Josh accepts this award less grudgingly than he did his assignment.

The fifth and sixth floors of the Taylor Family Digital Library are notorious for their ideal studying environments, breathtaking views of the scenic brick wall of the McKimmie Library tower and comfortable yet stylish lounge chairs. Most notably, though, they are known for their utter and uncomfortable silence. This lack of noise has recently become the subject of a new study out of the department of anthropology, led by Sauroman Jones.

Action Bronson is a large, Albanian Jewish guy with a hipster-length beard, taste for Lincoln Town Cars and a honking New York voice — about the most unlikely rapper you can imagine. Hailing from Queens, the former chef broke from obscurity in 2012 with his Blue Chips mixtape, placing him among rap’s underground elite and landing him a deal with Vice Records.

  Spun: Greg MacPherson BandPDF files may take a moment to load

As modern rock bands slowly edge further and further into the realm of mainstream music and the typical pop-esque radio fare over the course of their careers, the bands tend to adapt and develop more complex music with more instruments, synthesized sounds and orchestral backdrops. This isn’t the case with Winnipeg singer and songwriter Greg MacPherson, whose ninth album Fireball was released last month. MacPherson seems to keep toning it back and streamlining his style of rock ’n’ roll down to the basics.

Following the return of Tony Stark in Iron Man 3 last May, Thor: The Dark World is the first Marvel film after The Avengers to continue the heavy use of alien science and technology.
