Flux Playlist: Cinco de Mayo!

-Flux Blog Staff

It’s Cinco de Mayo, which means it’s the second day on the calendar that has nothing to do with our country, yet gives us an occasion in which it is perfectly acceptable to binge drink (if you’re 21, of course). So we at the Flux blog couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than to dedicate our weekly playlist to the holiday. So enjoy our playlist as you set off to have a fun (and safe) Cinco de Mayo!

Flux Playlist: 80's Edition

-Flux Blog Staff

It’s week 4 of the term, which means it’s time to double check all of your syllabi and make sure you don’t have any midterms this week. But before we dive into all of the tests and assignment deadlines that will soon dictate our lives, we here at the Flux blog thought we would put together a playlist to remind us of a simpler time. A time when leg warmers and fingerless gloves were in style. A time when a singer named Madonna was just breaking onto the scene. A time when hair metal bands roamed the earth. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our 80’s edition playlist.

Flux Playlist: Songs About Food

-Flux Blog Staff

Everybody knows that Thanksgiving is about one thing and one thing only: the food. An entire day in which we can eat as much turkey and mashed potatoes as humanly possibly without a shred of guilt. And while the holiday may have already passed, it doesn’t mean that some of us aren’t still living off the leftovers from Turkey Day. So here’s a list of songs to listen to while you munch on your leftovers.
