e have all seen the updates on Facebook and Twitter. Long threads of copied and pasted statuses that always have the same format: the setup, the sob story and then the request, something to the effect of â&#x20AC;&#x153;If 1 million people repost this, Little Sally will get a new kidney.â&#x20AC;? If you are one of the people who incessantly repost these, I am here to say that the only way this helps is if someone saw the status and decided to give up their kidney. Social media can have a lot of EHQHĂ&#x20AC;WV EH\RQG FRQQHFWLQJ SHRSOH that would normally never associate with each other. Many charities and organizations have started to utilize social networking to elicit support and more importantly, donations. Clearly, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about this. Cornell Veterinary major Gabby Wild has been relying on social media to promote her animal conservation campaign â&#x20AC;&#x153;12 in 12 for 12.â&#x20AC;? The premise of the FDPSDLJQLVWKDWVKHZHDUVRXWĂ&#x20AC;WV in 2012 that represent 12 endangered animals she is campaigning to save. Aside from Twitter and Facebook, Wild has been utilizing YouTube to update her supporters on the campaign. Each week, she uploads a video to her YouTube page, TheGabbyWild, to VKRZFDVH WKH RXWĂ&#x20AC;W DQG SURPRWH KHU cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important for SHRSOH WR VHH PH ZHDULQJ WKH RXWĂ&#x20AC;WV DQG DOVR WR NQRZ VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FV DERXW WKH animals,â&#x20AC;? Wild said. Wild also wants to make sure people are aware that this campaign is not just about fashion, but for people to really know where their money is going. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why her website, gabbywild. com, has all of the information about why each animal needs to be saved, as well as information about the charities that donors can support. While people like Wild have gotten a real handle on how to promote their campaigns, there are a lot of organizations that do not use social media in an effective way. For example, an image was recently circulating the Facebook news feed of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smallest elephant, saying that it was

in dire need of support. However, the image gave no information on where to send donations, nor did it provide any information on the animal. The caption only said to â&#x20AC;&#x153;please repost in order to save this animal.â&#x20AC;? While support can sometimes create enough buzz to truly make a difference, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare that simply clicking â&#x20AC;&#x153;shareâ&#x20AC;? will do any measureable good. It almost seems as though this is an easy way for people to feel as though they did some good. Twitter and Facebook are undoubtedly the largest platforms in which organizations use to promote their charities, mainly because of the widespread nature of both sites. On Twitter, an organization can reach out to millions of followers at a time and send simple, catchy messages while popularizing their cause with hashtags. Facebook, on the other hand, has the capability to be more interactive with users. Organizations can put more information on their pages and post pictures that can add emotional appeal to their causes. With Facebook expanding so rapidly, it is plausible that organizations will be able to make donations right from their fan pages. What is astonishing about social media is that it is, for all intents and purposes, the future of communications. There is no doubt the internet has changed the way we work and live. It will only continue to be an omnipotent presence in our lives. This PHGLXPFDQEHHPSOR\HGLQEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDO ways for companies and organizations, but only if used the proper way. Organizations must realize the potential that social media sites can have, and can use this information to appeal to a younger demographic. However, they cannot be lazy about it, otherwise it simply does nothing of value. Social networking must be strategic, crossing multiple platforms and keeping up with them. _____________________________________ Rachel Maus is a freshman cinema and photography major who â&#x20AC;&#x153;likesâ&#x20AC;? you but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t into poking.

Haff said. â&#x20AC;?However, if the consumers cannot mentally connect the product with the cause then they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really learning much about the cause itself.â&#x20AC;? Accidental trendiness, however, is a whole other story. The Lance Armstrong Foundation, most known for their yellow rubber LIVESTRONG bracelets, had a surge of popularity in 2004.

Combined with the popularity of Lance Armstrong, whose testicular cancer-­survival story helped inspire supporters, the LIVESTRONG movement gained ground and has blossomed. LIVESTRONG has transformed IURP DQ LGHD LQWR D IXOO\Ă HGJHG QRQSURĂ&#x20AC;W RUJDQL]DWLRQ WKDW IXQFWLRQV out of Austin, TX. Instead of focusing on â&#x20AC;&#x153;being trendy,â&#x20AC;? LIVESTRONG has focused on their overall goal: promoting cancer research. Yes, they still sell products â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the most recent collaboration being with Monster to create sport earphones â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but the products are related to the idea of physical health that has always been important to Lance Armstrong, and therefore have always been important to LIVESTRONG. Having sponsored products isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bad thing if it truly helps the cause that they are meant to promote. But in order to be a successful charity, the focus must remain on not only being charitable, but also on the causeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image. It might be fun to write â&#x20AC;&#x153;boobiesâ&#x20AC;? on all of your products, but if it could create any negative connotations around the cause youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to support, then writing â&#x20AC;&#x153;breastsâ&#x20AC;? will be a thousand times better.

o letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get one thing clear: Mor-­ al Fibers is not a charity. This company is not to be confused with the likes of Toms Shoes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great that Toms gives shoes to kids in Africa but what do these kids do after the shoes wear out? Although they have a nice new pair of shoes, they still live in poverty and those shoes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide their next meal. Moral Fibers takes on a new form of giving to those in need, something they like to call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;charitable employ-­ mentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;supporting human cap-­ ital.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As the old saying goes, if you JLYH D PDQ D Ă&#x20AC;VK KH ZLOO HDW IRU D GD\ 7HDFK KLP WR Ă&#x20AC;VK KH ZLOO HDW for a lifetime. Moral Fibers teaches poverty-­stricken Haitians the craft of making unique clothing.

They wanted to have a substantial impact on people so that they could come back and see how lives are be-­ ing positively changed. Weiss was

familiar with other â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ethical clothing companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but critical of companies like Toms that provide aid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can donate a million pairs of shoes and a million kids end up with an extra pair of shoes, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really international development, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aid,â&#x20AC;?

You can directly see how each artist is progressing. One artist was just able to save up enough money to move his family out of a tent and into a real apartment. Pictures and up-­ dates of this artist, Victor Phalange, were posted on the Moral Fibers blog and Facebook page. Weiss and Brightman are both college students who juggle attend-­ ing classes at McGill University in Montreal and running Moral Fibers. Weiss says that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy but he is so passionate about his work with Moral Fibers that all the hard work is worth it. Moral Fibers is looking to release their new line sometime this spring. This will include clothing other than the shirts designed by artists in Haiti. The line will include blouses, dresses and accessories. The com-­ pany is looking to start selling at re-­ tail stores, but their business model wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn retail. Going to bigger stores will create a higher demand for their product and the artist will end up making more. Right now they are lined up to launch Moral Fibers at six or seven boutiques in Montreal and Toronto, and are making plans for retail acquisition. Weiss says that although they are focusing mainly on retail in Canada, they are going start talking to U.S. boutiques soon. Moral Fibers is not the only com-­ pany that is providing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;charitable employment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pura Vida is a com-­ pany that employs artisans in Costa Rica to make bracelets that range IURPĂ&#x20AC;YHWRWHQGROODUV The next time you want to feel so-­ cially responsible, do some research into the company youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sending your money to.

for a more powerful testament of The Rootsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; musical prowess. The next four tracks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Time,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kool On,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OtherSide,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stompâ&#x20AC;? delivered exactly this. My favorite of these, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stompâ&#x20AC;? is successful largely because of Greg Pornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s featured vocals. These songs passionately express Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drug use, gang involvement and the power he feels during the climax of his life. The following three songs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lighthouse,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Rememberâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tip the Scale,â&#x20AC;? narrate the protagonistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youthful ambitions to overcome urban hardship. Like the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning, they are slower and more contemplative than the four previous tracks. Additionally, they are the last songs that include lyrics. The last four tracks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redford (for Yia-­Yia and Pappou),â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Possibility (Second Movement),â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will to Power (Third Movement),â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finality (Fourth Movement)â&#x20AC;? are completely instrumental, orchestral compositions. The Rootsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inclusion of these tracks, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redford,â&#x20AC;? which is written and performed by Sufjan Stevens, is a daring yet successful endeavor. These tracks complete Undunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrative arc while also creating a more dynamic sound.

In comparison, previous albums from The Roots, such as ,OODGHOSK +DOĂ LIH and How I Got Over have tracks such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clonesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it Againâ&#x20AC;? that are powerful even when isolated from the rest of the album. Overall, Undun delivers a poetic narrative and makes compositional risks, yet it fails to offer any real autonomous tracks. -­ Ken Robertson

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly impossible to objectively listen to Lana Del Reyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music without being somewhat LQĂ XHQFHG E\ WKH PDVVLYH K\SH PDFKLQH VKH¡V created. The name change, the plastic surgery rumors and the blogger assaults are all indelibly interwoven into her songs now, for better or worse. So is her ghastly performance on Saturday Night Live, which was considered one of the most uninspired in the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. When all of those variables are removed, Del Reyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second proper full-­length release, Born To Die, portrays an artist who is still trying to identify her meal ticket as she comes crashing into fame. Born To Die may be remembered more for the hype surrounding its arrival than the actual material it contains. The albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout track (by a mile), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Video Games,â&#x20AC;? reminds us why we VWDUWHGWDONLQJDERXW/'5LQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWSODFH7KHJLUO has talent and possesses a sultry, throwback voice that sets her apart from almost every other pop singer out there. The haunting chord progressions DQG Ă XWWHULQJ KDUSV GULYH ´9LGHR *DPHVÂľ OLNH a slow, haunting funeral march, and Del Reyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice is retroactively seductive. The songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics which illustrate a girl who is somehow excited (or is it resigned?) to spend the rest of her life with a seemingly unmotivated slob, are striking in their contradictions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Video Gamesâ&#x20AC;? showcases LDR in her best elements; slow, brooding songs seem to be her forte. With that said, the rest of Born To Die simply

doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t measure up to the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead single. It seems that the success of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Video Gamesâ&#x20AC;? caught Del Rey off guard and she was subsequently forced to craft an album around that to announce herself as a pop star. Unfortunately, LDR is no Lady Gaga or Rihanna. Her tone is too melancholy to get anyone dancing and her more upbeat tracks, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off To The Races,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;National Anthemâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carmenâ&#x20AC;? sound forced and contrived. Del Rey often tries to jump into a higher octave and crank out breathy pop vocals in the vein of a Madonna or Britney Spears, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a disappointment every time when compared to the pleasant timbre of her lower register. The biggest drawback of Born To Die is its exhausting length. The albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second half is PRVWO\Ă&#x20AC;OOHUDQGLW¡VKDUGWRLPDJLQHWKDWDQ\RQH besides an LDR diehard will ever make it through DOOVRQJVPRUHWKDQRQFH'HO5H\¡VWKHPHVRI dealing with newfound fame are well established LQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWHLJKWWUDFNVDQGHYHU\WKLQJDIWHUWKDW SRLQWLVODUJHO\VXSHUĂ XRXV Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt that Lana Del Rey has arrivedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; but after listening to Born To Die, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m left wondering how long it will last. You could argue that the buzz that has built up in the past seven months was more exciting than the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release now that the rest of her songs are out there. In my opinion, the way LDR responds with her next batch of material will be the most interesting part of the ride. -­Matt Kelly

Ever since Saltilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut album released in IDQVKDYHFUDYHGPRUHRIKLVXQLTXHPXVLF The mind behind Saltillo, (Menton J. Matthews III), weaves together urban beats, sound bytes, and classic orchestra to create a distinctive form of trip-­hop.

Fans began to accept GanglionDV6DOWLOOR¡VĂ&#x20AC;UVWDQGODVWDOEXP Then this February, Monocyte was released and swiftly devoured by his fans. It was intended to be a soundtrack to Matthewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comic book series of the same name. But the question still loomed: Would Saltilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sophomore album be a disappointment compared to his debut? Monocyte opens with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abeo,â&#x20AC;? a track that can be best described as a miasma of despair. Haunting strings are incorporated with long droning notes and a distorted dialogue about death to create a rather terrifying beginning to the album. It sets the dark, sometimes downright morbid tone that continues throughout the album. Unlike Ganglion, which had a much more classically beautiful sound, Monocyte combines distorted industrial beats with dramatic, high-­ note string music. Audio samples that deal with questions of existence and mortality are then integrated in, creating unique compositions that are a feast for the ears. The album is incredibly atmospheric, with each track carrying its own mood. All of these bleed into one another, painting a macabre picture that can sometimes be overwhelming. Grainy beats evoke the futuristic setting of the comic book, while dramatic orchestral elements

provide dark beauty and kinetic energy. Tracks like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Proxyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forced Visionâ&#x20AC;? take advantage of the stark contrast between the electronic and classical components to build up power and emotion into the song. The mixed sound samples also help emphasize the individualistic moods of each track. No song uses the sound bytes better than â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Hate You,â&#x20AC;? where a man discusses the human fear of being mocked, followed by exaggerated, warped samples of a crowd laughing. The result LVDPRUELGPL[WXUHWKDW,ZRXOGH[SHFWWRĂ&#x20AC;QG on the soundtrack for a psychological thriller. Sarah Matthews, the female vocalist from Ganglion, is still present in Monocyte, but her role is much more understated than in Saltilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut.

These lulls are needed between the other emotionally tumultuous songs to keep the listener from becoming exhausted. Though Monocyte is meant to be a soundtrack for a comic book, the album stands alone as an individual work. While it has a markedly darker tone than Ganglion, it does not deviate from Saltilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique style. It shows a new face to an already innovative artist.

The brilliance of Shameless can be broken down into two parts. First, the acting in this series is simply superb. William H. Macy shines as the leading man. Joan Cusack steals the show with her amusing disposition as Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agoraphobic love interest, Sheila. A special shout out must go to the adorable Emma Kenney for her role as Debbie. The second factor that makes the show so damned good is the writing. The dialogue is raunchy and hilariously honest, highlighting the boldness of these characters. Where Shameless falls short of perfection is in its duration. Running at an hour per episode, the show has a tendency to drag on at times. The show could EHQHĂ&#x20AC;WE\UXQQLQJDWRQO\PLQXWHVDQHSLVRGH like its British counterpart. All in all, Shameless is a smart, heartwarming, and tastefully erotic series that everyone with Showtime or an Internet connection (take that SOPA) should check out. The critics agree as well. Shameless is currently airing its second season and was just renewed for a third. In the words of Frank Gallagher, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may not have much, but all of us know the most important thing in this lifeâ&#x20AC;Ś We know how to fucking party.â&#x20AC;?

Anaconda Adoption Club Goes Awry By Jennifer Pike

V

ipera Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anaconda Adoption Club started with honorable intentions. Unlike more mainstream organizations that symbolically adopt manatees or parts of the rainforest, the students in the Anaconda Adoption Club focused on what they believe to be a much â&#x20AC;&#x153;coolerâ&#x20AC;? animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people think of the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;adoptionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; they usually imagine adopting pandas or kids from Africa,â&#x20AC;? explained Sally Harrison, AAC vice president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our club, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to resort to one of those boring op-­ tions in order to feel good about yourself. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the great part about climate change and the destruction of the Amazon.â&#x20AC;? When asked about his reasons for starting the organization, AAC Presi-­ dent Steven Boyd replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anyone really cares wheth-­ er a slimy sea cow lives or dies. Now anacondas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those things are impor-­

tant to this world. I mean, not that it really matters what species you save. Girls love guys that care about ani-­ mals. Period.â&#x20AC;? In January, the Anaconda Adop-­ tion Club sent a check to the Save the Anacondondas Founda-­ tion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said in a few weeks we would get our prize. We thought it would be just a cer-­ WLĂ&#x20AC;FDWH RU IDQF\ WKDQN \RX note,â&#x20AC;? Sally said. Soon after, the club met to take pictures for the college bro-­ chure when they received Ă&#x20AC;YH SDFNDJHV PDUNHG LQ Mayan hieroglyphics. When they opened the boxes, their newly owned adoptees were slithering around inside. Having only seen the animals in National Geographic or the movie Anaconda, the students had to look up photos when they heard a ter-­ rible retching sound. An anaconda had escaped and was in the process of swallowing football player Ricky Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gym shoes.

An Honest Mistake

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rickyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoe smelled pretty bad. The poor anaconda probably thought it was a small animal,â&#x20AC;? Sally said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it did look really cool. Better than the pictures.â&#x20AC;? In order to save the shoe, the club was forced to call campus security. 2IĂ&#x20AC;FHUV KHVLWDQWO\ URXQGHG XS WKH snakes, which have since been relo-­ cated to a nearby zoo. After looking through the website for a refund, Sally discovered that what really threatened anacondas wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the rainforest, but domestication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh well, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help without hurting a bit.â&#x20AC;? Steven Boyd explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean houses built by volunteer stu-­ dents arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t structurally sound like ones built by professionals, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than not having a house.â&#x20AC;? For now, the campus seems to be snake-­free, though there have been various rumors about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;basiliskâ&#x20AC;? lurk-­ ing in the shower pipes. ____________________________________ Jennifer Pike is a freshman writing major who suffers from ophidiophobia.

When I arrived, I wondered why everyone seemed so surprised â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it was as if I had interrupted a strange party ritual. The building reeked of a stench too unbearable to describe. Cans and bottles littered the lawn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; obviously soda â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure there was someone, or something, hanging off the balcony.

I mean, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to half-­way houses on the back streets of Binghamton, but I just kept thinking that none were as horrifying as this! They eagerly helped me unload the rather large quantities of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day dinners and loaded them onto a beer covered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pong tableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Now that I think of it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize I had made a mistake sooner.  7KH Ă&#x20AC;JXUHV H\HG WKH PHDO VORZO\ circling the carcasses.

Buzzsaw Asks Why...

BUZZSAW: The Charity Issue

Chipotle is such a big deal?

Ithacaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest chain restaurant, Chipotle, has opened, and for the past week, it seems as though everyone with a working digestive system has lined up out the door as if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a burrito in their life. People who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait 10 minutes for Jimmy Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to speed up the hill will patiently stand in the hour and a half line for the name-brand nachos with salsa. I get that new restaurants are nice, but why is everyone acting as though Chipotle is the second coming of Teotihuacan? Whenever I ask this question people look at me as though I said Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m voting for Gingrich; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you ever been to Chipotle,â&#x20AC;? they ask. Yeah, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with the sense of urgency? The business isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going anywhere. What, is everyone afraid theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll run out of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;carneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be stuck with only black or pinto beans? Why is it so pertinent that they put Chipotle on the top of their to-do list? Is it the sleek modern set-up that makes you feel savvy as you wolf down a burrito that rivals a small animal? Or is it because Chipotleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu embraces simplicity and says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Soft Tacoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rather than â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Homewreckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Joey Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;? I could understand the fuss if this were Cortland or Owego, where the most authentic Mexican food option is Taco Bell. But this is Ithaca, and between Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Viva, Garciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and not to mention the delicacy that is Taco Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to get giddy over another place that serves guacamole. I know the frenzy canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last too long; soon enough people will get it out of their system. As for me, I can live without the paying $1.50 for barelysalted tortilla chips. Personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a fan of Italian.
