Another one bites the dust as Queen’s legendary story is told on the big screen and excludes the great memory of Freddie Mercury. It began with Freddie Mercury, played by Rami Malek , at his day to day job and escalated to his encounter with Roger Taylor played by Ben Hardy and Brian May played by Gwilym Lee who were soon to become members on Queen. The movie was produced in a meticulous matter, capturing the most needed information in order for the audience to indulge in the film.

The shift of emotion was surely enhanced, one second I was in tears and the other I was laughing so hard I could not breath. Bohemian Rhapsody and its creation was a scene that left me with chills, the passion and motivation was felt through the movie screen. There came the evolution of Queen and their legacy, the film provided the bands seek for a new generation of music. The start of songs like “Another One Bites the Dust” and “We Will Rock You” are shown and that leaves one in a sort of “wow” feeling. Queen’s impact on many people remains till this very day and that is surely produced in the film. For one, the final scene simply justifies that they belong to the people and they formed a union of acceptance. Today, their legacy lives on and that is why Bohemian Rhapsody has made its mark nationwide.

We Can Survive Concert helps raise awareness

Maria Alfaro

Chronicle Reporter

97. 1 AMP Radio’s 6th Annual We Can Survive Concert was held at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 20. The concert was held to support and help raise awareness for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. At the concert, many artists attended such as Shawn Mendes, Marshmellow, Khalid, Charlie Puth, and much more.

All the artist that showed up teamed up to support the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), which is an organization that is dedicated to help support young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. They raised funds for this organization. Throughout the event, people were having fun and showed their support for breast cancer by wearing pink T-shirts, pink feather boas and dying pink streaks into their hairs. The event became a place for women and men to gather around to celebrate life, survival, and remember those lost in the fight.

The Hollywood Bowl along with LA City Officials had the streets closed from 5 pm to 10 pm since the concert began at 6:30 pm. Once the streets opened up, there was a traffic jam. The traffic began from around Sunset and Highland and continued until reaching the Hollywood Bowl. The concert was beneficial and helpful to many people in different ways.

The Space X Falcon 9 rocket launched Sunday night which caused a strange looking light into the nights sky. This may come as a shock to some people but these lights were not from any aliens or UFOs. According to the staff at Space X, The atmospheric conditions were the reason that this visual and stunning display lit up our sky. The two staged rocket blasted right on time at 7:21 pm PT from California’s Vandenberg Air Force base. Minutes after the launch, the rockets second stage separated from the first stage which is why you might have seen two bright white lights in the eye catching ”cloud”.

 

Social media immediately responded to this launch with pictures, videos, and conspiracy theories. For many people, this launch was unexpected and surprising. ”I was on the freeway when I first saw the launch,” said Cristian Huante, a senior in TCA. ”At first i thought we were going to get nuked.”
