March 13, 2018

When I look back at my childhood, my best memories were created outdoors. At a young age, I remember biking around Mill Valley in search of adventure.

By Kavi Dolasia and Kavi Dolasia

March 5, 2018

One look at Gerald “G-Eazy” Gillum will give you all you need to know. The effortless attitude– faintly reminiscent of James Dean– the meticulously cut, slick back hair (seriously, he has a live-in barber on tour), the signature faded black skinny jeans, the tall lanky figure, and the smirk mak...

Hi, my name is Savannah, and I grew up in Australia. Technically, I am from New Zealand and South Africa, considering I have citizenship in both of these countries, but in my heart, I’m a straight up Aussie.

The Dos Equis Most Interesting Man in the World has company. You won’t find him climbing the world’s tallest mountain, or wrestling crocodiles in the Nile. He resides in the corner of the Tam library’s back room, perched behind an awkwardly tall desk, making only his head visible to the seated...

By Milo Levine

December 10, 2017

During the school week, Tam students are given 40 minutes of freedom a day: lunch. School would be infinitely more bleak if we weren’t given a certain amount of time to do whatever we wanted. Off-campus lunch is pretty much a blessing from the administration. It’s kind of like the string that guards...

To say artists Offset and 21 Savage’s new project Without Warning dropped without...well...a warning...would be a bit of an understatement.  Produced by Metro Boomin, Without Warning was released the night before Halloween and was only hinted at by Offset with an Instagram post 10 hours prior to re...

Marin is certainly not lacking in ice cream shops to satisfy any craving for some of that cold, sugary goodness. While the number of ice cream places in Marin remains dwarfed by that of hair and nail salons, there is still an adequate number to offer some variety. Upon comparing and contrasting them ...
