If you haven’t heard of Timeflies yet, you will soon. The duo, comprised of vocalist Cal Shapiro and Rob “Rez” Resnick, was featured as an MTV Artist to Watch in 2013. The group does not have an easily defined style; they are the perfect combination of pop, hip hop and electronic. They formed Timeflies in 2010 while they were still in college. They started making videos every Tuesday, appropriately called Timeflies Tuesday, in which they covered or free styled popular songs. Along the way, they have released original music in the form of several EPs and two full albums. This fall, they are on tour in honor of their latest album, After Hours.

Some things at FANGLE are still coming together. To answer some of the feedback that I have received: a lot of our staff members are freshman or relatively new to journalism. As they’re getting their foot through the door, it’s important to teach them what we’ve learned from our own personal experiences so they too, can grow personally in writing, photography, or whatever it may be.
With time, comes experience. Though it may seem like a lot of our content is still on the relatively minimal, we are doing what we can at the publication to teach our staff the fundamentals of reporting and making sure views are expressed in an objective way while still telling a compelling story.
However, their passion and eagerness to learn, still drives this magazine moreso than I have seen in a lot of people who choose to enter the field. It’s an encouragement for me and for a lot of our senior editors.
It reminds me of the potential FANGLE has for the future, and it’s a bright one.

For someone who doesn’t like gin, Ian Wilson, a bartender at The Crystal sure does love Kansas City Ice Waters. “I am not a huge gin fan but all the flavors mix really well, and the lime juice is a nice added touch,” he said. Wilson gave FANGLE the scoop on what goes into the beverage and how to make them.

Last week, I decided that reality absolutely sucked and I needed to be as far away from it as possible. I bought popcorn, candy and some energy drinks. I locked my door, put on my fluffy pink bathrobe and proceeded to relieve stress the best way I know how — binge gaming.
I alternated between “Majora’s Mask,” “Grand Theft Auto V” and “Skyrim.” By the time I woke from my caffeine-and-sugar-induced haze, I realized I had spent the last three days cooped up in my room with no substantial food and zero contact with the real world.
*Editor’s Note: For anyone not involved in it, Greek Life can often seem like a world of its own. You might see members in togas, bow ties or ridiculous ’80s outfits hanging out at the bars on a Thursday night and wonder why they chose a college lifestyle so different than your own. The funny thing is, if you actually take the time to talk to a member of Greek Life, you’ll quickly discover that they are normal students, just like you.
That’s where the Greek Files come in. Each week, we will be profiling a new, random member from a social, business, service, honors or otherwise fraternity or sorority, to show people the real students involved in Greek Life and what going Greek means to them.
There is a talented new artist from Sweden who is already taking over United States’ pop charts. Tove Lo, whose real name is Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson, is a Swedish singer-songwriter who is here to make her mark. Tove Lo released her debut EP titled “Truth Serum” earlier this year, and on Sept. 30 she released her first full- length album called “Queen Of The Clouds.” With a title like that, it is guaranteed to be a lot of fun.
