Charlie Recchia, Arts & Entertainment Editor
This is my first year working with 42Fifty, and I hope to make it a great one. I have strongly enjoyed writing ever since I was in elementary school. Throughout my school years, I would get so excited to write whenever I had the chance. I am now a junior in high school, and I have found a great outlet for my writing with 42Fifty. I really enjoy watching movies and playing music in my free time. I play the drums in a rock band, as well as take part in Oswego High School’s drama productions. With interests like these, I have the knowledge to be a strong Entertainment Co-Editor. I hope I can bring a lot to 42Fifty’s table during my first year.

Text: Charlie's Classic Album Corner. "Blood on the Tracks" Album Cover

Although this is an absolute brilliant album, there are several filler tracks that bring it down from being perfect. They hold amazing ideas within them, however, they go on for too long or leave me bored.

Danelli’s is the restaurant for any true Italian food and atmosphere lover. With its exciting family history and old-fashioned style, it is a local treasure.

“OK Computer” has sold up to 4.5 million copies since its release, according to Pitchfork. Due to the album’s financial and critical success, the band became more than the artists behind “Creep” - they became cult superstars.
