Hold off on that pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce for just a few more days – “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” comes out in theaters Friday! I don’t know what I’m most excited about: my favorite of the Hunger Games trilogy on the big screen? Casually waiting in an eight-hour line during eighth week for a midnight premiere in Westwood? Enjoying Liam Hemsworth’s sexy bod … Anyway, if you’re too busy too re-read “The Hunger Games,” the odds are in your favor: I give you “The Hunger Games” summarized in Emoji. (more…)
Sawtelle is the name of both a street in West LA and the neighborhood that encompasses it. If you haven’t been yet, it’s time to pay this gem of the Westside a visit. It’s close enough to campus to take the bus. And what better time than now? It’s eighth week after all – far enough from finals week to put off studying, and close enough to get stressed and look for suitable distractions. Sawtelle, dubbed “Little Osaka,” offers some of the best Asian food in town, along with karaoke places and unique shops with prices that let you make the most of your college student budget. Bring only $10 (cash, as most of these places are cash only) and follow Mojo around Sawtelle. (more…)
A little over a year ago, the sweetest, most addictive game known to man was created. If you’ve heard the phrases “Did you pass me to the next section yet?” or “Wait, let me just pass this level,” or “IF I HAD ONE MORE MOVE I COULD HAVE BEAT IT!” then you probably know what I’m talking about: Candy Crush Saga.

There are certain combinations that are just non-negotiable: milk and cookies, spaghetti and meatballs, marshmallows and hot cocoa … and pumpkin and sage.
When I first saw the recipe on UCLA alumna Casey Ditty’s food blog, Snip of Mint, among other winning recipes like chocolate rosemary ice cream and mozzarella and pesto dinner rolls, I knew this lasagna would also be a surefire win.
One bite of this delightfully unique lasagna will be enough to convince you. It’s a great variation of the traditional fall pumpkin line-up. (more…)
Enrollment passes for next quarter are underway, and students are struggling to signup for the classes they need, find which ones have the best professors, and of course look for general education classes they might enjoy. In order to help you out, we asked students which GEs they would recommend to their peers.
Chris Ishida, a third-year computer science and engineering student, said, “Astro 5 was pretty easy and interesting. It was a cool class that talked about the grand scheme of things, like how life came about,” he said. “It was a ’purpose of life’-type class.”
Sarah Schwartz, a third-year economics students, told us, “Poli Sci 20, which focused on international politics, was really relevant [to real life] because it keeps you up on what’s going on in the world. It wasn’t that hard; it wasn’t that easy, but it was interesting, which made the class easier than others.”
Matt Clutario, a third-year biology student, said, “Music History 68, the Beatles class, taught the history of the Beatles, the folk movements, and the ’60s, their personalities, and breakup. I didn’t listen to the Beatles that much before, but this class turned me into a huge Beatles fan.”
Which GE’s would you recommend to a fellow bruin? Comment below or tweet us @dbmojo.
