MLK Day march celebrates King’s heritage By Rebecca Brusseau @r_brusseau Albuquerque commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day by participating in a parade on Jan. 13 held by the Dr. MLK Jr. New Mexico Commission in honor of the 50th anniversary of his passing. The parade began around 11 a.m. at the end of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue near the University of New Mexico and ended at Civic Plaza in Downtown Albuquerque. Throughout the walk, participants and groups held signs in solidarity with the cause. Some of the signs read, “Challenge Systemic Racism, Poverty, War Economy, Ecological Devastation,” “Thou Shalt Not Stand Idly By,” or other phrases. Some signs featured visuals of the late King. Groups affiliated with UNM and the greater Albuquerque community were represented, such as Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Alumnae, the Alpha Phi Lambda Fraternity Alumnus, the Albuquerque chapter of the National Association for the Advancement for Colored People and many other organizations that stood for equality for citizens of color. Dr. MLK Jr. Ave. was closed to traffic for this event. Throughout the walk, as a safety measure, a police escort guided the participants while blocking off intersecting traffic. The walk was followed by drum lines

UNM Greek life comes under scrutiny Program assisting

students of color receives substantial cuts

By Madison Spratto @Madi_Spratto

The party is over for Greek life at the University of New Mexico — at least for now. UNM Greek life is on “social restriction” as of Dec. 13, 2017 until Feb. 19, 2018, due to alleged activities that occurred during the Fall 2017 semester that were not in accordance with Greek life values, Matthew Lumpp, the UNM Greek life advisor, said. Social restriction allows for the organizations to participate in normal operations such as recruitment and intake events, community service, chapter events and general chapter meetings. However, nonGreek students are not allowed to attend any event, on or off campus, while the restrictions are in place, and all events must be alcohol-free and preapproved. UNM’s zero tolerance for hazing, substance abuse and behavior that could potentially cause harm was one reason behind the restrictions. Lumpp said that by enforcing constraints, the administration hopes to send a reminder that safety and responsible behavior are both top priorities for Greek life. During this restriction period, Lumpp said this is an opportunity for members to be introspective and focus on accountability and selfgovernance. Complying with the

UNM Code of Conduct and their organization’s policy gives students the opportunity to take advantage of privileges associated with fraternities and sororities, he said. The social restriction came in light of three fraternities — Pi Kappa Alpha, Phi Delta Theta and Phi Gamma Delta — being put on emergency suspension. All three are currently under investigation by the UNM Dean of Students Office, due to allegations of hazing and alcohol violations within these chapters, Lumpp said. For one fraternity, disciplinary actions did not end at restrictions. The alumni group of the UNM Phi Gamma Delta chapter, also

known as FIJI, voted to recommend to the national headquarters of the organization that the UNM chapter be closed, Lumpp said — the headquarters and UNM still have to finalize their decision. At UNM, he said the Dean of Students Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities is responsible for making the final verdict. Nathan Odegard, a UNM junior studying creative writing and technical writing, has been a FIJI member since 2015 and was the chapter president in 2017.

The Project for New Mexico Graduates of Color seeks to assist students of color on their path to graduating. Recently, the organization’s funding has been nearly cut in half, based on the University of New Mexico Student Fee Review Board’s decision on Dec. 12, 2017. From the 2017-2018 fiscal year, PNMGC was granted $9,907 — for the upcoming fiscal year, the organization will be granted $5,000, according to information distributed during a Board of Regents meeting in December. PNMGC is no stranger to budget cuts, as the group has faced major funding decreases since the 2014-2015 fiscal year. “In 2014, PNMGC was fully funded (with) $75,000, last year (nearly) $10,000 and this year $5,000,” said PNMGC mentor and Ph.D. candidate Andrea Abeita during a speech at the BOR meeting. “That is not only criminal, but is unethical.” SFRB is a student committee, composed of both graduate and undergraduate students, including ASUNM President and SFRB

Vice Chair Noah Brooks, that allots funding to many organizations on campus. SFRB has funded PNMGC for 17 years, according to a speech given at the BOR meeting. Each year SFRB opens application submissions, which is when organizations apply for annual funding, Brooks said. After the applications are processed, each organization that applied will attend a hearing. A three-day deliberation period follows. The funding allocated to each group comes from annual mandatory student fees, he said. The largest PNMGC reduction happened last year and the board made a decision to cut because they thought there were duplication services among PNMGC, according to Brooks. Duplication services refers to when multiple organizations fulfill the same role. SFRB gave recommendations to PNMGC, such as finding full-time funding outside SFRB, but the board felt the organization did not follow them, he said. Brooks said that a decrease in funding can be attributed to many factors, including a lowering enrollment rate. “Sometimes on SFRB, really

to come out and show the real differences in New Mexico and in the United States so that we can come together not as a color, but as people in unison and harmony,” Smith said. “I am constantly trying to work with the youth and get different programs (in low-income neighborhoods) so that they don’t become a victim of their environment.” When the march reached Civic Plaza, presenters and speakers organized while waiting for the crowd to file into the rows of seats set up for the audience. Speakers included Mayor Tim Keller, Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Dr. Jennifer Gomez-Chavez of UNM’s Division of Equity and Inclusion.

“All too often we get caught up in listening to doubters, the naysayers, the people who are all too concerned about their own agendas who are sowing seeds of division into our community, and in effect, holding us hostage when it comes to making our city a better place,” Keller said. Keller said King’s feats and his work to create equity in society inspired Keller’s effort to bring equality to Albuquerque. “It is his true legacy that is now our responsibilities,” Keller said. “Together here in our city, we will stand up against division, we will stand up against racism and we will stand up against the hate that is circling around in our country.” Chavez said that her personal

background as a first-generation Mexican-American and the instances of racism that she has experienced shaped the way she approached the change that needed to be made in society and at UNM. “I come to you as a proud member of the University of New Mexico where I work for the Division of Equity and Inclusion…where the goal is to ensure that we are creating a healthy and welcoming climate for our students, staff, faculty and community members,” she said. Chavez said she is proud that she works for the OEI, which is the only department of its kind in the state of New Mexico. “My hope, such as Dr. King’s vision and goal, is that we create equal access to an education for all

students and their families so that we can begin to transform systems into ones that have a more inclusive perspective with respect and compassion for a growing, diverse population,” Chavez said. In terms of diversity in New Mexico, she said that the underrepresentation of people of color is present throughout communities. “New Mexico is the most diverse state in the U.S., and without a doubt we are contributing to the influence and diverse workforce,” Chavez said. “However, our educational statistics continue to alarm us that our underrepresented students remain to have lower educational attainment rates.” Moving forward, society has made great progress, which should not slow down, Chavez

said. Leaders of organizations across the country are severely underrepresented by culturally diverse individuals, she said. This event was one of many that took place throughout the country. The Dr. MLK Jr. New Mexico Commission said the group planned to celebrate the holiday over the weekend throughout the state in the form of rallies, music performances and luncheons.

to get into specifics…but I can talk big picture: at the end of the day, UNM needs to be very proactively considering their risk management. Greek life tends to be a fairly high-risk environment. There comes a point when the University needs to separate its

association with an organization, which it deems to be high-risk.” Odegard said from inside the organization, elements of “inadequate leadership” and a “general sense of entitlement” could have led to trouble as well. Having a tight-knit brotherhood

was prized within the FIJI community and has not diminished, despite the circumstances, he said. He said he hopes people remember the fraternity and its members as the “tightest group of friends.” “I think most guys join fraternities, because they need a home — I

know I did — so losing that is never easy,” Odegard said.

Bridging the gap between generations By Nichole Harwood @Nolidoli1 Is the millennial generation entitled? Well, that depends highly on who you ask. Most individuals who fall in the 20year age gap of being born after 1980 and came of age in the new millenia would argue no. After all, studies such as “Today’s young workers are more likely than ever to have a bachelor’s degree” by PewResearch.org state “4 in

10 millennial workers ages 25 to 29 had at least a bachelor’s degree in 2016, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Current Population Survey data. That compares with 32 percent of Generation X workers and smaller shares of the Baby Boom and Silent generations when they were in the same age range.” When you compare these facts with news reports such as the one by CNBC’s “More college students are working while studying,” which cites a study from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce that

states, “over the past 25 years, more than 70 percent of college students have worked while attending school,” then this seems extremely unlikely. Afterall, an entitled individual is unlikely to work full time at a deadend job while attending college full time to obtain a higher education — especially if you factor in the endless student debt that comes with that much-desired degree. But there is an even bigger problem than questioning if millennials are entitled. And that’s the fact that questions like these lump millennials

together in one category. So what if the question wasn’t “Is the millennial generation entitled?” but rather, “Is any generation entitled?” Adam Conover of Adam Ruins Everything argued this point at the Deep Shift millennial marketing conference by holding a talk titled “Millennials Don’t Exist.” Conover didn’t argue the fact that there are people who are born within a certain amount of years, but rather argued against the idea of this age meaning there is a way to market to an entire demographic defined purely

on their age and the image cultivated of millennials. Conover brought forth the many labels routinely placed on the generation and argued members of “previous generations” routinely see the younger generation as entitled, regardless of whether there are any facts attached to this viewpoint. “It’s not as though every Boomer gave birth to a Gen Xer, gave birth to a Millennial. This is just like an artificial way to divide it up,” Conover told the audience at the conference. “There are Boomers whose kids are also Boomers

hard cuts have to be made, because we have a lack of funding, so I urge students of anywhere across campus to apply to be a part of SFRB,” Brooks said. “Overall all units were treated fairly and equally.” PNMGC has served hundreds of students from a variety of backgrounds through different workshops, scholarships, networking and guidance, according to Abeita. More funding for PNMGC could mean more funding for programs for project assistance, scholarships, faculty of color awards and planning for materials, but due to these funding cuts, there are now spending limitations, according to Edith Sanchez-Saenz, graduate student and PNMGC graduate project assistant. “Since (funding) has been reduced, we have cut food, so we mainly use it for scholarships and for (our) salaries,” Sanchez-Saenz said. “I feel that PNMGC is so important, because it really does represent a lifeline.This is a place you can go when you’re bawling, because your papers are due, you feel overwhelmed, you don’t have any money or sleep and you just need a hug,” Abeita said.

and there are Millennials whose kids are Millennials. Imagine that right now. There are Millennials with little baby Millennials — it’s bizarre.” After going through the demographics he pointed out they show one thing: that there are just people, a whole a lot of people who are alive at the same time, he said. The unflattering descriptions attached to the current millennial generation he states are ones attached to most generations by previous generations. Despite what many of us may think, the term, “back in my day,” was not coined by our grandparents. At one point every generation was termed the young generation and considered irresponsible by someone. In fact as all “millennials” became of age to vote as of 2016 then many who turned 18 in 2017 are not technically “millennials” and yet memes or ideology applying to 16 and 17 year olds are often connected to the idea of what a millennial is. Conover cites studies showing the basics that connect the millennial generation, such as diversity, and that

millennials earn less than their older peers before the recession and have 60 percent lower wage growth. But these connections are thin threads at best. Even among my siblings, all of which are in my generation, there are differences. I’ve never touched Snapchat, but my sister is on it seemingly all the time, and yet the obsession with this social media platform is one often connected to millennials. Even deeper than this is the idea of what a millennial is. There are many who would be dubbed millennials that have lead such radically different lifestyles that putting them in the category of entitled millennial borders on absurd. For instance, take a child of a wealthy, middle-class family who was raised with all the technology the world has to offer at their fingertips and compare that person to an individual of the same age who was raised with a stay-at-home mom, multiple siblings and a father who struggles to pay the bills. Are they both entitled just because they happen to belong to the same generation?

Pewresearch.org states they use age cohorts to give researchers a tool to analyze changes in views over time. “While younger and older adults may differ in their views at a given moment, age cohorts allow researchers to go further and examine how today’s older adults felt about a given issue when they, themselves were young, as well as to describe how the trajectory of views might differ across age cohorts,” the site states. So while we are connected by being part of a same generation, the largest value in this connection isn’t really so others may judge all within that generation, but rather so we can compare and contrast how other generations felt and responded to the issues we face today in the past.

LETTERS

In defense of immigration from “Shithole Countries” Editor, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” U.S. President Donald Trump allegedly asked during an Oval Office meeting, further musing that the U.S. should try to strike a new balance with fewer immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean and more from, say, Norway.

Remember MLK’s opposition of the Vietnam War

Well, of course, he shouldn’t have put it THAT way, if he did (he denies it). Between the language and the demographics in his supposed example, he’s handed his opponents the opportunity for a doubly delicious round of public moral preening — look how vulgar, and how racist, Donald Trump is! Maybe they’re right. But they’re missing much bigger points. Whatever his phraseology, and regardless of any racial differences between the populations of the countries he chooses as examples, he got the whole matter backward in two important ways. First and foremost, neither Donald Trump nor Congress should be Editor, Prophet Martin Luther King Jr. damned the Vietnam War in his most controversial speech on April 4, 1967 — exactly one year before he was assassinated. King damned the U.S. mass murder of Vietnamese people. King said, “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my

choosing who comes to America. That’s the market’s job, not the government’s job and certainly not the federal government’s job. Prospective employers and prospective employees don’t need politicians to tell them whether or not they can get together. They can figure that out for themselves. If it’s government largess that’s the problem, well, end the welfare state already instead of complaining endlessly about who uses it (besides which, immigrants pay more per capita in taxes and consume less per capita in welfare benefits than nativeborn Americans). Secondly, as sociologist and essayist Jacques Delacroix points out, the incentives for immigration run

in the opposite direction from what Trump’s comment assumes: Immigrants from wealthy states like Norway (which has a higher per capita GDP and a more robust welfare state than the U.S.) are more likely to be from the bottom of the barrel — the people who can’t or won’t make out well for themselves in an economy even better than ours but have enough money to get on a plane and take their laziness and complaining elsewhere. Immigrants from poor states like Haiti, Somalia and — Delacroix’s example — India are more likely to be the cream of the crop, those ambitious enough to leave everything

they know behind and start over in search of success — in some cases, even risking starvation in the desert or shark-infested waters on inner tubes for a minimum wage opportunity. Again, the market’s got this, if the politicians will just butt out and knock off their disgusting, anti-American, authoritarian control freakery.

own government.” The New York Times, the Washington Post, many newspapers nationwide condemned his strong message of truth! Many whites, many blacks, the White House, even most of King’s inner circle of black leaders condemned his strong message of truth! He suffered much hatred, many

death threats! WHY is that speech far less known, far less honored than his “I Have a Dream” speech? SADLY most King celebrations do NOT emphasize his strong stand against nuclear weapons, against the Vietnam War, against the evils of capitalism and the U.S. empire. Martin Luther King Jr. was a prophet! Not a politician, not a rockstar! He

refused to silence his conscience. He refused to sell out his convictions to get the popular support of millions and the approval of the powerful!

UNM student shoots for Miss Black USA title By Rebecca Brusseau @r_brusseau

Shyla Lavalle hopes to focus on black womanhood and awareness of black mental health in her 2018 campaign as Miss Black USA in preparation for the pageant this August. Lavalle, a third-year University of New Mexico student majoring in Public Communications and Africana Studies, received her title and crown as Miss Black New Mexico in August of 2016 and has held the position since. Her original campaign was based on the platform of promoting black womanhood and awareness of environmental distress, she said. Lavalle said she feels her original campaign platform could have focused more on promoting the empowerment of black youth in Albuquerque and volunteering with them. “In my opinion, last year I wasn’t

doing enough community outreach, and I wanted to do more,” Lavalle said. Many issues faced by the black community are caused by a lack of dialogue, Lavalle said. “This can easily be fixed if we just talk about things,” Lavalle said. “It’s not that easy, but it would be a crime against myself and the black community to not promote that talk.” Lavalle was inspired by many factors in her childhood adolescence, beginning with the principles her grandparents impressed upon her, she said. “Growing up, my grandparents always said to me, ‘School is about more than grades, you have to be well-rounded,’” Lavalle said. “When it came to joining organizations, I was always pushed to do more, because I wanted to keep myself focused on my grades, but I also wanted to branch out.” Lavalle’s grandparents also showed her the importance of giving back to the community by donating coats to services like Goodwill. These

courses, she was inspired by Dr. Finnie Coleman, a professor within the English and Africana Studies departments, she said. “That’s where it all started; I was like, ‘I want to be a teacher, I want to be like Dr. Coleman,’” Lavalle said. “But then I realized that I want to go bigger than that.” To Lavalle, identifying as a woman of color is one of the most important titles that she wears in her day-to-day life, she said. Dr. Coleman helped her understand the importance of being proud of your identity and being a prime example of a woman of color, Lavalle said. “New Mexico has a black population of less than 5 percent, so it’s important to increase initiative and let our small population know that there are platforms we can stand on too,” Lavalle said. “We are just as valid and important in this community, and it disgusts me that people try to make us even consider that we are not.” Lavalle is motivated by the societal inequities that lead to the black image

principles, along with her Mexican heritage, formed her into someone who takes pride in her ethnic lineage, she said. “I got to UNM, and I started learning more about the history of myself as a black American, and I realized how much help my community needs,” Lavalle said. As soon as she began attending UNM, she became involved with campus resources like El Centro, African American Student Services, the Black Student Union, the Powerful Movement for Educated Sisters and Zeta Phi Beta Nu Tau chapter. Now that Lavalle is in her third year, Lavalle hopes to join the UNM chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and work with the National Alliance for Mental Illness for her platform this year as well, she said. “These organizations not only have helped me to help others, but they’ve also helped me identify as a proud black woman in America,” Lavalle said. When Lavalle took her first college

being specifically devalued, she said. Her title as Miss Black New Mexico is one way she hopes to make an impact on the public image of blackness. “It’s not just a pretty crown. I’m not just Miss New Mexico — I’m Miss Black New Mexico,” Lavalle said. When reflecting on her progress, Lavalle said she asks herself, “How can I reach more?” UNM currently does not offer a graduate program for Africana Studies, so she hopes to attend graduate school out of state. Lavalle said she has thought about schools that offer this program in Georgia. Moving forward in adulthood and as a result of forming her career, Lavalle’s dream is to one day own her own television network or have her own television show, she said. Rebecca Brusseau is a news reporter at the Daily Lobo. She primarily covers the LGBTQ community. She can be contacted at news@dailylobo.com or on Twitter @r_brusseau.

Fandoms come together at ABQ Comic Con By Nichole Harwood @Nolidoli1 Mayor Tim Keller addressed the media Friday, on the opening day of Albuquerque Comic Con 2018, highlighting the importance the event held for city residents. “It’s very fun, it’s for all ages and it basically unites things like pop culture and media with a personal learning experience,” Keller said. Keller mentioned there were many stars who visited Albuquerque for the con, such as Danny Trejo and one of his personal favorites, Sin Quirin, who is a member of the industrial metal band Ministry. “I’ve just been a fan of comiccon and the concepts,” Keller said. “I didn’t even know we were having

it. But when I heard, I said, ‘I want to make it a point to take some time out and champion it a little bit.’” The convention attracted many actors this year, including first-time attendee Joe Davison who starred in the popular Netflix series, “Stranger Things.” Davison said he attended, because he heard the Albuquerque Comic Con was amazing and large. Davison gave a nod to his character from “Stranger Things” by saying, “It’s not my fault I left the door open, and the demi dogs got out. Or is it? I don’t know, that’s why I died in the elevator I guess.” Alongside Davison, other actors from popular television series included Pruitt Taylor Vince of “The Walking Dead,” Samantha Smith of “Supernatural” and more.

Many of these guests spoke at multiple panels at the convention. The panels, which were open to the public, also included open video game tournaments and play. Among the fandoms at the Albuquerque Comic Con, Star Wars took center stage, as actors Paul Blake and John Morton of Star Wars alongside Death Star creator Colin Cantwell helped to inspire a slew of impressive Star Wars cosplays. These cosplays included detailed stormtroopers, many of which could have been cast as extras in the movie, and the ever-popular Rey, who first appeared in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Despite the large force of Star Wars cosplayers, a variety of co-

ABQ Comic Con welcomes autistic community By Sherri Barth

@SherriJBarth23 For Taylor Risse, a teen living with autism, comic-cons are special. “I went to the Santa Fe ComicCon a couple of months ago and had a blast,” he said. “I met a couple of movie stars, the guy who played Spike on the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Colin Baker of Dr. Who.” The eighth Annual Albuquerque Comic Con at the Albuquerque Convention Center kicked off a three-day event Friday, which included the Sensitivity Opening, which accommodated Taylor and other kids living with autism. The Sensitivity Opening was intended to give these children an opportunity to experience the fun of superheroes and comic book characters without being overwhelmed by crowds. Jim Burleson, owner and promoter of Albuquerque Comic Con said this is the first year the convention admitted children with autism for free on the first day of the event. There was no age limit for those with autism to attend. Patrons were allowed in with no charge on an honor system by saying they were there for the sensitivity presentation.

“We have a greater percentage of kids dealing with autism in our industry, and it’s a common thing that we have families living with autism that are supporting us and saying, ‘You know, we can’t stay very long, we have a hard time with crowds.’ We wanted them to know we appreciate their support, because they come every year, and it’s huge and growing as a community, and we want them to know they are important to us,” Burleson said. Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, is mainly characterized, but not limited to, challenges in social communication and repetitive behaviors, according the University of New Mexico Center for Development and Disability website. However, ASD has many different levels and stages which vary from each individual. The website indicates that a large role in ASD in children is fostered by “advanced parental age” and maternal illnesses. “ASD is identified in approximately 1 in 68 children. ASD is four to five times more common among boys than girls,” according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as stated in the UNMH website. World-famous costumers were

available to answer questions on a panel and helped craft masks and capes for the children living with autism, Burleson said. Actors from The Punisher, Sobo and Frumer participated with the children as well, he said Cosplay artist Dava Renee was also available and assisted autistic children in creating colorful costumes at no charge. There were quiet panel rooms for the children, giving them the chance to participate in a quiet atmosphere. Individuals living with autism all ages joined Renee in her creative demonstration, she said. Renee’s own five-year-old son is autistic. “Think about the entire world that you live in, just amplified,” she said, describing what it is like to live with autism. “Say that somebody (were) to walk by outside, that can distract them, even if they are really into an activity. Kids that are hyposensitive live in a more of a muted world where they don’t feel pain the way we do or hear things the way we do…They are hyperaware of things around them.” “Some of the greatest creators we have worked with are autistic. A lot of times they didn’t know it until they came to our show and we were

working with a couple of kids with autism, and their guardians were explaining how autism has affected their lives,” Burleson said, adding that the creators were then tested and diagnosed with autism. He said overall, he expected a 10 percent growth in attendance. Burleson said he received an overwhelming response from the autistic community that this is the type of event they enjoy attending, as the number of people living with autism continues to increase each

year on a large scale. “These are our people. They are creators. They are our family. They are our community, so why wouldn’t we support them?” he said.

splayers from other fandoms held a candle as well, including a Nixon from “Futurama” (head in the jar and everything), Sans from “Undertale,” two fancily dressed Blues Brothers and a Ghostbuster. Along with the cosplayers came the merchandise adorning the halls of the comic-con, which included a variety of clothing, prints and jewelry related not only to popular fandoms but also belonging to an array of artists and writers both new and returning. One such writer marked her fourth year at the Albuquerque Comic Con. Author of the “Dream Walker Chronicles” Gail Wagner

promoted her series, which she describes as paranormal with a historical twist. Wagner said she enjoys seeing the cosplayers that attended the convention and has cosplayed herself. “I feel like Albuquerque has a really great sense of community with the comic-con here,” Wagner said. “Everybody’s friendly. It feels like family, so that’s why I keep on coming back.” Wagner was not alone when it came to the feeling of community, as another vendor Megan Craig, a Albuquerque-based illustrator, said what she loves about Albuquerque is that the community is close.

“I’ve attended a lot of other cons where it’s been a little bit edgy,” she said. “You can feel some animosity between some groups of nerds, but every time I come to a Albuquerque or Santa Fe or Duke City that just started last year, the volunteers are great. And everybody here is just super excited to be here. This is the con that I love the most.” Nichole Harwood is the culture cditor at the Daily Lobo. She primarily covers alumni and art features.

Top 3 albums of 2017 By Audrin Baghaie, Kyle Land, James Li, Colton Newman, Eric Ng @DailyLoboMusic A Crow Looked at Me Mount Eerie Songwriting: Phil Elverum Highlights: (None) In the summer of 2016 Phil Elverum’s wife, Genèvieve Castrée, died of cancer, leaving him the sole parent of their young daughter. Revered in songwriting and indie circles for his work with The Microphones and Mount Eerie, Elverum has a reputation for creating sonically lush and complex treatises on nature and existence itself. But in “A Crow Looked at Me,” Elverum relieves himself of his familiar tools and instead goes for a bare and literal approach, combining the opaque high-context lyricism of Sun Kil Moon with brazenly sparse instrumentals. He charts the unending journey of grief with relentless honesty, chronicling death’s immediate aftermath, tainted domestic routines and unwanted tribulations. He also sings of the love he and Genèvieve shared, of its beginnings and the plans they made together as a family. The result is not just an remarkably moving and blunt documentary of grief, but also a monument to a deep and unbreakable love. — James Li “A Crow” is painful and cathartic to experience, providing the most genuine perspective on death and love — perhaps ever. Elverum’s voice cracks and breaks and tears in trying to put into words the gravity of loss; the instrumentation barely supporting his hollow exhales. Yet, despite the hopelessness and futility of these recordings, the album is undeniably beautiful, perhaps because of the

honesty. Something of this nature, as truly as genuine and open as this record, hasn’t really been attempted before. There are no lies, no comfort, no hooks or bridges or choruses. In turn, hardly any replayability. But there doesn’t need to be. “A Crow” is too rich of an album to be played often. It’s tremendous dreary weight, seemingly infinite in futility, is also a reminder of how vivid life can be. On the flipside of Elverum’s darkened moon there resides an equal, albeit obfuscated, amount of love and life to be cherished. Somewhere. — Audrin Baghaie

Sacred Horror in Design Sote Songwriting: Ata Ebtekar Highlights: Bogzhe Esfahan, Holy Error Dariush Dolat-Shahi’s 1985 album, “Electronic Music, Tar and Sehtar,” was the exhibition of a graceful dance between traditional Iranian folk music and newer, synthetic technologies, acting not so much as partners than as extensions filling each other out into a new, unprecedented whole. Though the latest from the evershifting Tehran-based composer and electronic musician Ata “Sote” Ebtekar, “Sacred Horror in Design,” builds toward more discordant ends, though that sense of fulfilled convergence remains — perhaps even more so given the more refined electronic tools with which he’s able to synthesize. “Flux of Sorrow” drones a grounded but undefined center around which Arash Bolouri’s santoor and Behrouz Pashaei’s sehtar weave and carve a sense of ungraspable history; this dynamic

morphs on the next track into a conflicting mountain of buildup that falls into emptiness, as if to say the chaos doesn’t need to be there to be felt. The relationship continues to change, with the sehtar and electronic whirr pushing each other over the santoor’s gallop on “Plural,” steady pumps of low end fuzz emphasizing the grandeur of the strings around it on “Plebeian,” a virtuosic dance between instruments becoming even more vertiginous with the underlining rush of sound on “Segaah.” One might see this as being an upgrade of an older lineage of music, but they coexist, as on closer “Holy Error,” the most techno-oriented track here, the way traditional instruments (on which Ebtekar told Pashaei and Bolouri to also play on the wooden edges) fall at various angles into the electronic movement is as thrilling a vision for electronic music as it is for its older companion. The title of “Sacred Horror in Design” reflects both its discovery of latent qualities in preexisting designs and its existence as a blueprint of sorts, but there’s no mistaking it for anything but a monolithic work in its own right. — Eric Ng Saturation Brockhampton Songwriting: Ian Simpson, Russell Boring, Dom McLennon, Ameer Vann, Merlyn Wood, Matt Champion, Ciaran McDonald, Robert Ontenient Highlights: HEAT, STAR, BOYS, FAKE, BUMP Brockhampton is the biggest gamble in hip-hop's history. 15 20-somethings, most of whom met through a Kanye West fan forum, moving in together under the sentiment that something

is bound to happen in such a creatively fertile environment. The “Saturation” series is a result as much as it is a celebration and, though the first one was clearly the most unpolished, I see a bit of each installment in this pick. The juxtaposition between opening banger, “HEAT,” and the hormone-laced closer, “WASTE,” says more in itself than any essay on the vehemently self-

proclaimed “boy band” ever could. Listeners are gifted these violent thoughts of angry kids who want nothing more than to bomb the local courthouse; 45 minutes later, one sways to a reverb drenched daydream of love lost, treading unashamed in cheesy territory. “STAR” will influence lyricists for decades to come, with McLennon and Vann coming through on infectious quotes referencing

famous/failed Hollywood celebrities, closed out by a ferocious verse by Abstract – momentous, considering hip-hop’s take on homosexuality only just a decade ago. "BUMP" is a reflection on the record as a whole, with Hemnani’s teething beat ablating speakers building the environment for collective leader Abstract to hum a solemn hymn as its chorus. The relentless battering ram

that is Brockhampton’s work ethic is fueled only by collective’s individuality and versatility. It’s very easy to get to know the members, either through lyrical exposition or watching their meticulously edited music videos/short films. Moreover, the group is a spiderweb of unseen talent: visual artists, app developers, and filmmakers. It wouldn’t be the least bit surprising to see retail Brockhampton products at Toys “R”

BioBlog — Into the Mud: A Solomon Islands story By Xena Mapel

Editor’s Note: This piece was originally published online in the UNM BioBlog on Dec. 11, 2017, written by Xena Mapel This is part of our project to help connect the Daily Lobo audience to more members of our community. When I tell people that I spent six weeks on various small Pacific islands, they imagine me on a pristine beach with a fruity drink in my hand. This is far from the truth; rather, I spent my days ankle-deep in mud, climbing ridges and handling some of the most incredible birds I’ve ever seen. Living in a tent in a dense, tropical rainforest for nearly two months tested me in ways I never imagined, but I would relive the experience in a heartbeat. My excitement for birds and the South Pacific began when I was a sophomore at the University of New Mexico. As a volunteer at the Museum of Southwestern Biology, I was exposed to thousands of specimens from across the planet. I longed to travel to these places to experience the incredible

wildlife firsthand. Fortunately, I was offered a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates fellowship. This fellowship enabled me to travel to the Solomon Islands with a team of biologists from UNM, the University of Kansas, the Field Museum of Natural History and a local NGO, Ecological Solutions, Solomon Islands, to conduct a survey of terrestrial vertebrates (frogs, lizards, snakes, birds and mammals). The Solomon Islands are an archipelago tucked away in Northern Melanesia, just east of New Guinea and a short three-hour flight from Brisbane, Australia. We arrived in the capital, Honiara, and after securing the required supplies, we took a 24-hour ferry ride to the New Georgia Group in Western Province. From there we would visit three islands: Ranongga, Vella Lavella and Kolombangara. The first island we visited was Ranongga, which we traveled to from Gizo Island in three 60-horsepower, outboard fiberglass boats. When we arrived, unloading was an ordeal. Instead of the soft, sandy beaches, you may picture when imagining islands —

instead, the shore was composed of the remains of coral and rocks. Nearly the entire village assisted us with unloading our copious gear and food. The next morning we woke at dawn and sloshed into the jungle; a daunting task with over 30 bags of heavy scientific and camping equipment. After about two hours, we arrived at our camp, which was part of an old logging road next to a stream. We began setting up camp, and when we were nearly finished, it began to rain. Within minutes, our tent city was a river. Then there was the mud, more mud than I have ever seen in my life. The next days were spent setting up mistnets, which are large, fine mesh nets that are used to catch birds, along three ridges that circumscribed our valley. Every day, my job was to wake up at sunrise, open the nets along one of the ridges, then spend the rest of the day trekking up and down the valleys, sliding through the muddy hillside, while checking nets and watching birds. After we finished our first island, we spent a few days recovering in Gizo then traveled to our second island, Vella Lavella. This boat journey was far more trying than our first —

an ominous lightning storm chased us through high seas for two hours. Warm splashes from the crashing sea were punctuated by penetrating cold rain, and we were soaked to the core. The 30 people who called the village of Pusiju home kindly helped us unload. We hiked up to our camp and set up in the beautiful primary forest (forest that had never been logged or disturbed). Our site was much different than the forest on Ranongga, which experienced intense clearing and logging 10 years ago. Here, the diversity and abundance of birds was significantly higher. At this point, daily tasks felt more routine, and we didn’t experience as much of a learning curve. The rain abated, making conditions much easier. After 10 days, we were set to leave. We discussed our findings with the villagers, who are now in the process of constructing a field station and are dedicated to protect their primary forest. Kolombangara, which means “land of many rivers” in the local language, was the most diverse island we visited, but also the most challenging. Kolombangara is an ancient, cone-shaped volcano that creates a fantastic elevational gradient. This is extremely exciting

for biologists because different species specialize at different elevations, making studying their evolution thrilling. Our plans fell through more than once, which made things complicated, but, nonetheless, we persisted. We were able to experience some of the most unique and verdant environments of the trip and found some of the coolest species. The herpetologists may have discovered a new species, which was exciting for all of us. We spent nine days on the “island of many rivers,” which concluded my summer adventure. For my research, I will use the samples I collected to study avian malaria, a parasite that is having a devastating effect on other island bird populations. This fieldwork enabled me to experience the beauty and diversity of the tropics, and I will continue to preserve and protect the unique animals on these islands.
