A comprehensive list of all-time favorite things to end my career
By Jackson Moran ’21 THE ROUNDUP Well, this is it. My final list of favorite things. I feel compelled to make a grandiose theological statement about finality. About past and present feelings of regret and time lost.

Brophy album from 1960s rediscovered
By Jude Unrein ’23 The Roundup You remove a record from its sleeve and blow off the dust. You put it on your record player and switch it on.  The record starts spinning and the needle touches the vinyl. A folky, surf pop-sounding song starts playing from the speakers; however, the lyrics are heading in another direction. This is no other than “It’s a Brand New Day,” an album of…
