Editor’s Note: Experience The week of all weeks—one that we’ve been waiting for since January—is seven days away. Some people are going on foreign resort trips, cruises, etc. But my question is this: What is the point of traveling if you aren’t even going to travel? I’m sure cruises and resorts are fun, but that isn’t traveling. Going to a resort in Mexico is basically going to an exclave of America, bordered by Mexico. It isn’t experiencing a place, culture or people. It’s experiencing an image of America put up to lure more Americans there. Heck, the resorts and cruises that we all know and love are probably owned by Americans too. There’s a difference between going somewhere for extravagance and going somewhere for experience and adventure. And I understand that. But I think that relaxation needs to be met equally with exploration. Those traveling experiences can be so crucial in shaping someone as a human being. Just being exposed to a completely different culture—or simply a completely different human—can alter someone forever. Sometime, while you’re sunbathing on your big extravagant cruise, or drinking virgin margaritas in your Mexican resort, try and take a look outside of where you are. Take a peek into the streets of the surrounding areas and wander until you get lost. Talk with real locals, not just the ones working where you are at, and try to walk a day in their shoes. Try and experience something different. It’s not everyone who gets iPhones and running water every day. Sometimes the places that we refer to as the most extravagant get-aways, aren’t all too extravagant just a few steps outside the golden walls holding America in, and the rest of the world out.

Everyone knows about all the common St. Patrick’s Day symbols and traditions that are present every March 17. The shamrock, pinching someone if they don’t wear green on St. Patty’s, the leprechaun and just that fact that green is everywhere. So how about we peel back the layers of this Irish holiday and what happened in history to make it what it is today. Let’s start with the origin of the name itself: St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick was kidnapped as a slave and taken to Ireland as a slave. He claimed that he was told by God to escape to a ship and return to Britain; he succeeded in doing this and became a priest during his time in Britain. Eventually he returned to Ireland to Christianize the native people from their previous polytheistic beliefs. In succeeding he became a patron saint. The holiday itself commemorates his death. There are many symbols associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but the most common is probably the shamrock—or the three-leafed clover native to Ireland. Now this symbol has long been part of this holiday because it is told that St. Patrick used this particular plant to explain the Christian concept of trinity to all the Irish. The color commonly associated with the holiday is green. It is assumed to be the color of the holiday because of Ireland’s famed emerald coast between the lush green wooded county side
and emerald coastal waters. Now for the history behind those little men so common to St. Patrick ’s Day: Leprechauns. They are, as most people know, small old Irish men clothed in green. It is unclear where they came from, but clearly they have been part of Irish mythology for a very long time. They have been described in texts from the 1800’s and even before. The name comes from the old Irish word “luchorpan,” which is translated to small body. Those are the basics of St. Patrick’s Day. We hope you learned why we do what we do when we do it on March 17. Keep your eyes out for Leprechauns. E

This new fad of being “hipster” and going against “the mainstream” is the new “cool.” That being so, one of the best ways you can boost your “coolness” is to know music no one else knows. It’s a trademark of the hipster. To help you on your search for different music, we’ve compiled a few bands that are pretty obscure, as told by the obscurometer at obscurometer.com. These artists are just a place to start, of course, but can help you discover new music you didn’t even know was out there.
Ranking a 67 percent on our obscurometer, the North Carolinian indie rock band is new and fresh. The two band members, Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard, debuted their album The Rosebuds Make Out in 2003. The following year, they recorded an EP called Unwind. Since then, they have opened for bands like Other Lives and Bon Iver while also doing covers for artists like The Pixies and The Cure. Their sound can be described as “sleek and minimalist” as well as “dark and sensual.” Some of their more popular songs are Night of the Furies, Life Like, and Loud Planes Fly Low.
Hudson Mohawke is the second artist on our list, coming in as 70 percent obscure. Also known as Ross Brichard, Mohawke is an electronic DJ/music producer from Glascow, Scotland. His debut album called Butter came out in 2009. He is 27 years old, but
started making music when he was only 15. His first recording to give him major notice was titled Spotted. Since then, the young artist has come out with another album as well as done many compilations with rapper Kanye West. Some songs that stand out are Fuse, Thunder Bay, and Bliss.
Our final artist ranked 83 percent on the obscurometer: Doldrums. Not much can be found on this artist. They’re that obscure. However, it is a project started by a Montreal based artist named Airick Woodhead. He creates music to intense music videos that he creates himself. Some known songs are Anomaly and Jump Up. These artists have been deemed obscure and will no doubt boost your coolness if you check them out. Have fun music hunting! E
SPRING BREAK TRIPS ACROSS THE WORLD, AND ADVENTURES AT HOME
TRIPS By Elliott Smith
During spring break, Mr. Brandon and Mrs. Espinoza will be taking 29 students to Spain for an entire week. The students will have the opportunity to be immersed in Spanish culture and language. They will get to experience a flamenco performance, a musical act that includes dancers in vibrant and colorful dresses, dancing and clapping rhythmically to lively played guitar. They will also visit the city of Pamplona, and see the streets where the infamous “Running of the Bulls” takes place every year. They will also visit the surreal Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, which features stunning modern and contemporary art. “I really want to show these students what another culture is like, and for them to see cities that are hundreds if not thousands of years old,” Mr. Brandon said. The group will also visit Spain’s capital, Madrid, and the iconic cities of Barcelona and San Sebastian. “I would like my students to have the chance to use their language because there is only so much you can learn in a classroom.” Also during spring break, Mr. and Mrs. Williams will be taking a group of 20 students to Europe, where they will visit the classic cities of Venice, Florence, and Paris. While the students will see a lot of the cities’ important and historic landmarks, they will also get to see the more local sides of the cities. “I want to give the students a chance to see what these places are really like,” Mr. Williams said. “If we are spending two days in a city, and one day is for seeing the important landmarks, the other will be for the students to just hang out.” They will be viewing some of the most recognizable architecture in the world, such as St. Marks Square in Venice, the Duomo Cathedral in Florence, and the timeless Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triumph in Paris. “I would like the students to see the parts of the cities that are out of the way,” Mr. Williams said. “Rather than eating at a restaurant right next to the Eiffel Tower, we would eat at a more secluded and local spot.” As with Mr. Brandon and Mrs. Espinoza’s trip to Spain, the Williams’ trip will be sponsored by EF Educational Tours.

BREAK By Amber Baack
While summertime still lurks in the distant future and the second semester continues to roll on with math tests and chemistry homework, there is one week that every student is looking forward to: Spring Break! Europe, Spain, South America, the beach, resorts, road trips, exotic locations, exciting stories, beautiful pictures, and new experiences—Spring Break is a time filled with hope and joy and a break from the monotony of school. But sometimes, the most exotic place a person could go is their backyard and their Instagram will only explode with photos of Starbucks, tanning on the back porch, and sleeping. So, how can a Spring Break at home be exciting? Well, there’s plenty more to do locally than many people know. A Ke$ha concert in Las Vegas with flashing lights and glitter. Your heart is pounding with every bass note and you’re jumping and screaming at the top of your lungs having a night that you will never forget. Yes, that sounds awesome. But, you could still have close to that experience here in Fort Collins. The Aggie Theatre has live music every weekend, ranging from local to nationally known bands and the small, close atmosphere can
give you an intimate concert experience. And who knows, there could always be some glitter involved. Also, the local record store, The Bizarre Bazaar features live music most weekends and has a ton of old and new records to check out. For someone looking to venture a little further, The Ogden Theatre in Denver features a wide range of musicians and bands. Rapper/singer Hoodie Allen will be there March 15 and plenty of other well-known artists will be there throughout the month of March and the week of Spring Break. Winter skiing has come to a close, but spring skiing and snowboarding is still in full swing. Keystone, Breckenridge, Winter Park, Copper, and Steamboat all have snow that is ready to be shredded. Grab a couple of friends and go down for a day or two to your favorite resort and get in some final skiing and snowboarding and experience the majestic mountains to escape from everyday life in Fort Collins. It’ll feel just like a vacation without having to go too far away. E Check out the full article at eistone.org
THE MEANING OF FOSSIL TALKS:
HIPSTERS? By Abbie Hanawalt and Amy Borngrebe
Q: What is your definition of cool? Freshman Ben Seest: Someone who is loose, not uptight. Q: How do you feel about hipsters? Senior Eryn Gammonley: People think I’m a hipster… it’s hard to define. Q: Are you a hipster? Senior Austin Marshall: I was a hipster before it was cool.
DEFINING “COOL” By Topanga McBride
¹cool \’kül\ adj 1: moderately cold; lacking in warmth 2 a: marked by steady dispassionate calmness and self-control 5: facilitating or suggesting relief from heat 7 slang a: very good: EXCELLENT; also: ALL RIGHT 7 slang b: FASHIONABLE The word “cool” has fourteen entries in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition, including the few above. “Cool” can be used as a noun, an adjective, a verb, and an adverb. Teenagers’ everyday lives are plagued by one question, “What is cool?” In reality, “cool” has more definitions than the fourteen stated in the dictionary. “Cool” is defined by an individual, defined differently by a group of people, and defined differently again by a generation. The hardest part about defining “cool” is that the definition is always changing. You probably don’t wear the clothes you bought last year near as much today. What may have been “cool” yesterday isn’t today.

SPRING Even more, “cool” recycles itself. Take a look back at some pictures from the past. You might recognize some of the fads are similar to today. But who decides “cool”? It’s not like someone has the power to determine “cool”. “Cool” is the product of advertisements, trendsetters, world events, and peer pressure. How many times have you seen anything relating to Coca-Cola®? Thanks to plenty of marketing, Coca-Cola® and the way of life it associates with its product, Coca-Cola® has made itself one of the definitions of “cool”. How about the ever-changing world of fashion? That’s all due to fashion-designers, celebrities, and your other local trendsetters. In high school, it’s “cool” to give to charity and do community service. There’s entire clubs dedicated to it. Events like hurricane Sandy can spark a “cool” movement. Defining “cool” at Fossil Ridge High School is already hard enough. With so many different types of people, there is no way to find a mutual definition of “cool”. It may be possible to find the most popular definitions of cool, but that still does not represent the student body as a whole. So really, what is “cool”? It’s an indefinable, ever-changing, and personal definition of what is good. It’s more complex than it appears to be. “Cool” is what you decide it is. E

FASHION By Haley Osborn
This year’s spring fashion is bringing us back to grunge: Bermuda shorts, jailhouse stripes, the elegant white and box tops. As a flashback to the 90s, Doc Martens, slip dresses and flannel are making reappearances, recreating the alleged grunge style that created an air of carefree muse appeal. Last year, the brightly-colored short shorts were in style, but this year Bermuda style shorts hitting right above or below the knee are the hot ticket. Bringing back the retro style of thick, horizontal or vertical stripes are burglar stripes of the 60s, which combines the hottest style of the season: black and white contrast. White is the new springsummer essential that can be conveyed with draping layers or be kept separate in concrete colors and sections. Schedule those abdominal workouts because crop tops are back, but they’re taking on a different style. Box tops, as they are now called, are taking a geometric form protruding straight down the body, not clinging at all. But don’t let this seasons fashion trends end here with the most popular trends; don’t forget those fluorescents, graphics, sheens, pencil skirts and dresses. Try and experiment, get creative, and mix and match. After all, this season is all about combining previous retro and grunge styles. E

GOLD By Chandler Gould
The Scholastic Art Awards date back to 1923, and the prestigious art award was even given to Andy Warhol in 1945. Luminaries judge submissions in the visual arts, and some of them are even past recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, skill and the presence of personal voice or vision. This year, five Fossil Ridge High School students won the Gold Key for their art pieces. Award winners included seniors Jonathan Hamilton, Cassie Florentin, and Tess Scarborough. Senior Jonathan Hamilton “Nihil” (Top Right) Q: What inspired your winning piece? A: The inspiration for my piece came from what I see to be a paradox expressed by nihilism (the belief in nothing). The paradox is that nihilism is both childishly innocent but also terrifying. The idea of believing in nothing has sculpted my identity as a person and an artist enormously. Senior Cassie Florentin “Spyglass” Q: What does it mean to you to win the Scholastic Gold Key award? A: To win a gold key is surreal. When my pieces were entered into scholastics, I was really just hoping for anything, to be honest. As an artist, you are always looking for positive feedback in artwork. You work and erase and create, for hours, putting your heart and soul in to it. While you are doing it for your own soul purpose, for your own therapy, you are still secretly striving for some sort of success indicator. Winning a gold key is simply an honor and something I will never forget. Senior Tess Scarborough “Taraxcum” Q: What inspired your winning piece? A: The day that I took the picture that won the gold key award I was riding a four-wheeler with a friend down a dirt path in the Wyoming mountains. I had brought my camera and we were exploring the summer countryside. I saw this dandelion and was just interested by it. E Check out the full article at eistone.org

Abbie “Pauline Friedman Phillips, who under the name of Abigail Van Buren wrote the long-running ‘Dear Abby’ advice column, has died. She was 94” (Fox23.com). Dear Abby, People all over America would write in letters to you with problems and concerns seeking advice. And you had quite the gift to give these troubled people just a little bit of friendly and helpful advice. People admired that about you. You are actually one of the reasons that I wanted to become a journalist. I wanted to help people by telling their story and maybe even giving them some suggestions on a problem they were faced with. I remember when I told my mom that I wanted to write for the school newspaper. It wasn’t just to write though. I wanted to hold a special spot on the paper; something that was mine. I remembered that a lot of papers have a “Dear Abby” column, and seeing that my name is Abbie, I wanted to start one at my school. I didn’t feel right taking the already trademarked name, so I began to play around with a few ideas. It took a long time to figure out, but with the help of my staff, we agreed on the title “Sincerely Abbie.” But instead of the traditional “write in a letter and get a response” form, we took a new approach to it. I decided to just write general advice about problems that students might face in high school. Some is fun and creative, and some is serious and formal. I guess I just wanted to say thank you for sparking a passion inside me to give people advice, even though you didn’t know it. May the name “Dear Abby” live on forever. Sincerely,
TALES FROM THE
LITTERBOXn o n e m o n e h p l ia c A so By Vickie Bonnema
My U.S. History class has been talking about the effects of industrialization on American society in the late 1800s. Now, let’s stop here and all get on the same page. I’m not prepared or willing to write a long history lesson. So let’s just take that cursor off the Facebook tab at the top of the page, set our hands in our laps, and sit quietly for a second. For now, I’m going to be talking about men. Er, boys if you’d rather. See, my history class goes on and on about some topics, but the one we went pretty well into today was the loss of masculinity in many men during industrialization. Men were put in factories and were set on schedules, not out in the fields with their own control over their life. And so, during that time many men relied on sports to let out their pent up testosterone. Makes sense. What’s interesting to me is this: how is that continuing? We don’t all have farms or work in mines, do we? And we still have men I assume; I think I’ve seen quite a few of them today. So what do they do in this new society to fulfill that need? Many are, of course, still involved in sports. In Colorado in particular there seems to be some craze over football, what with these so called “Broncos” being on every other Colorado sweatshirt. Here, we also have a unique opportunity to hike, rock climb, and go skiing or snowboarding. (The operative word being “or”: there is never both.) In fact, many shirts that boys wear, if you’ll notice, either have a sports team or some sort of logo printed on it. No flowers or butterflies like girls’ clothes, though we’ll talk about them later. This might be to emulate “coolness,” a popular imaginary term. Those who want themselves to
become popularized, a trend setter, or just want to have lots of friends to talk with put themselves in spotlights of loudness, humor, and even social drama. Even those who aren’t boldly being a class clown are always boldly stating something, whether it’s the music heard through their headphones or the number of homework assignments they choose to complete. There’s even a certain boldness in the way people walk and how they treat strangers; weather or not they hold the door open for you can tell a story. People are always trying to propose an image of themselves to others. Now, let’s take this idea and set it into a universal scale. Girls do it too, you know. Clothing is especially key to how girls tend to paint themselves. The types of clothes girls wear and how conservative those clothes are announce to anyone they meet, particularly other girls, who they are and how they want to be seen. Now, here’s the good part: girls and boys are constantly rewarding and punishing each other for how they prepare themselves. Girls who act or dress alike will likely be treated similarly by their male peers; at a glance, they are seen as practically the same girls. And for a boy who keeps his head down and chooses to wear a shirt of a band no one’s heard of, they are likely to be cast aside or ignored by those who are looking for peers who fit “the norm” of outgoing and hip. It’s unfortunate for some people, but the thing is, this is sometimes purposeful. There is a great distinction between people who are willing to be anybody and everybody’s friend and those who are maybe a bit pickier about their friends. Those who are willing to have and be broader friends tend to wear more generic outfits; there are some things that
anyone could wear. In contrast to a boy or girl who is only interested in making a certain type of friend; he/she will consequently choose to wear a T-Shirt with a specific video game or brand on it to attract a specific peer type. Many are asking for the type of attention they receive from their peers. And all of you who are reading this and going, “Pfft! I don’t choose my clothes every morning to make people think something about me!” you’re not off the hook either. Indifference is a unique form of boldness. I truly believe that those who just “throw on clothes” in the morning are being apathetic on purpose. It’s a form of coolness, shows thick skin, it might even be a form of masculinity. Which brings us back to boys. If nothing else is taken from this article, know this: You can’t lie to us, boys. We know you’re being indifferent on purpose. Columnist’s Note: This article was written on Jan. 22. The very next day, I was openly mocked in the school hallways for wearing a Keep Calm shirt that no one understood. My point has been proven in painful thoroughness. I’m not out to attack the students of Fossil Ridge; this goes for all teenagers. Yes, it was only a very small group of outspoken friends trying to impress each other, but it’s how many people are in essence. There is a natural need for humans to impress, to show superiority and masculinity—even the girls—and there are those unfortunate few who give into the pressure. Luckily, not everyone is like that. I’m proud to say that humans are a strong race and, condemn me if you must for being cheesy, I believe in people. Even boys. E
