STAFF OPINION: Vinyls: More than a piece of pressed plastic

Editor-in-chief, Brie Haro, is known for her vast record collection in her room and thinks that it is the best way to consume music. While noticing the resurgence in the trend to own records, she encourages others to “get that vinyl off your wall and onto a turntable.”

“Looking horizontally” with UP alum Walter Thompson-Hernández

Walter Thompson-Hernández grew up watching planes fly over his neighborhood, daydreaming of all the worlds that extended beyond the ones that he and his community knew. Now those daydreams have turned into reality after his film “If I Go Will They Miss Me”, highlighting narratives he grew up around, won the 2022 Sundance U.S Jury Prize Award.  His short film will be screened on Sept. 8 in the Brian Doyle Auditorium in the Dundon-Berchthold Hall from 6-7:30 p.m. There he will host a Q&A afterwards to kick off Latinx Heritage month as the keynote speaker, sponsored by Portland Magazine and the Office of International Education, Diversity and Inclusion.
