IU’s Full Frontal celebrates 25 years


By Ellen Hine | @ellenmhine

Full Frontal Comedy, IU’s longest running improv group, is entering its 25th year. Founded in 1994, the group practices long-form, “Chicagostyle” improvisational comedy, as well as short games and sketches. According to its Facebook page, FFC has free performances every Friday night in a variety of venues, from residence halls to the Indiana Memorial Union. “Full Frontal is older than I am,” current member Calvin Badger said. Badger, a senior studying advertising, said he found FFC as a freshman at the student involvement fair. While he didn’t think he would get in, he auditioned anyway because he thought it would be fun. “Coming into college, though, I wasn’t like, ‘I’m going to do comedy,’” Badger said. “I think I just like to perform and be the center of attention.” IU alumna Emily Chervony said she found FFC her freshman year after attending a show with friends. She said doing improv helped her managed her generalized anxiety disorder during college. “It’s 100 percent changed so much for me,” Chervony said. She said her improv experience has made her a confident public speaker and quick decision maker. While she started taking improv classes after she moved to Chicago, she said graduate school has kept her from taking more. Several members of FFC have gone on to pursue comedy full time, such as founders Jill Benjamin and Derek Miller. Benjamin wrote and starred in an award-winning show “Playing Dumb with Jill Benjamin” and SEE COMEDY, PAGE 5

Activists protest SCOTUS nominee By Joe Schroeder | @joemschroeder

Activists hung a banner on the walls of the Monroe County Courthouse encouraging people to call their senators and to urge them to vote no for the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The protest was organized by students and local activist groups, and featured speakers discussing Kavanaugh’s views on health care and women’s rights. Later, protesters passed out buttons, flyers and signs with sayings like “Why we say KavaNOPE” and “Protect Health Care” on Kirkwood Avenue. The protest comes after the Senate postponed their vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination following Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a house party when he was 17. Kavanaugh denied the allegation. The Senate’s meeting to vote on Kavanaugh was scheduled for Thursday but was postponed amid the allegation. The Senate Judiciary Committee said it will hold a public hearing with Kavanaugh about the allegations next week. Blasey Ford is currently in negotiations to speak before the committee. Students on campus are concerned about the allegation and what it could mean in the future, College Democrats at IU President Raegan Davis said. “We are trying to draw the connection between how he treats women outside the courtroom and how he would treat them in the courtroom,” Davis said. In addition to women’s rights, protesters said they are concerned with Kavanaugh’s views on health care. Protester Bryce Greene spoke to the crowd of around 30 people on how Kavanaugh’s appointment could affect health care. In the past, Kavanaugh has received criticism from abortion-rights activists for calling SEE KAVANAUGH, PAGE 6

Stauder strong Bloomington community rallies behind football manager after cancer diagnosis By Cameron Drummond | @cdrummond97

Matt Stauder was pulled in all directions Thursday night. He was constantly engaged in conversation as he navigated the perimeter of a white event tent pitched in the parking lot of Smith’s Shoe Center and Wagon Wheel Custom Meats at 1915 S. Walnut St. His conversation partners varied, from friends within the IU football program to Bloomington residents who just wanted to wish him well and even IU Coach Tom Allen. They were all there for Stauder, a selfless, soft-spoken IU senior and longtime student equipment manager for the IU football team, who has been undergoing treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma since May. “I wanted to remind him that don’t ever hesitate,” Allen said. “Whatever you need, we’ll find a way to make it happen for you. I just put my arm around him, told him I loved him.” Thursday’s benefit for Stauder featured about 100 people gathered in and around the tent to offer emotional and financial support to Stauder, support that has showered him since his diagnosis in April. The event was sponsored by three Bloomington businesses and featured food and live music from local country music singer Reece Phillips. According to a press release, all proceeds were to go toward Stauder’s medical expenses, but Stauder also received an additional $5,000 during the event from Carl Lamb, a Bloomington attorney who presented the donation via the Hope for Hoosiers Foundation. These are only the latest examples of the Bloomington community rallying around Stauder. First, IU senior running back Ricky Brookins created a GoFundMe page to help pay for Stauder’s medical expenses. Created eight days before Stauder’s first chemotherapy treatment, the page has raised more than $31,000 from more than 400 donations as of Sept. 23. In his duties as an IU football manager, Stauder works closely with the running

backs. He brings over the heavy balls and bags, as well as sets up drills for assistant head coach and running backs coach Mike Hart. Stauder, who is from Westfield, Indiana, said he and Brookins were friends, but not super close friends last season. Since Stauder’s cancer diagnosis though, the two have formed a tight relationship and are neighbors. “When I got back down to Bloomington, he just wanted to hang out a lot more,” Stauder said. “That just means so much to me. One of the people that I see and work with everyday shows appreciation and supports me like that.” Those hangouts with Brookins feature the usual activity of any college-aged male — the video game Fortnite, which Stauder says he has the advantage in. Spending time away from the football field with Brookins is significant, if for no other reason than the amount of time Stauder still dedicates to the Hoosier program. Stauder has been to all IU games this season, arrives at Memorial Stadium around 6 a.m. each day and said he’s only missed five practices since managers reported to the team July 31.

“I don’t think I’m really struggling right now. I’m just trying to act like a normal kid, and that’s what I’ve been doing all throughout treatment is try to live as normal of a life as I can.” Matt Stauder, IU football student manager and senior

He hasn’t informed any of his IU professors of his situation either. A sports management and marketing major, Stauder has only one class in person this semester while the rest are online. “I don’t think I’m really struggling right now,” Stauder said. “I’m just trying to act like a normal kid and that’s what I’ve been doing all throughout treatment is try to live as normal of a life as I can.” SEE STAUDER, PAGE 5

Campus farm grows sustainable crops By Lilly St. Angelo | @lilly_st_ang

Wearing a blue Hawaiian shirt, black rubber boots and a sun hat, Erin Carman-Sweeney, IU Campus Farm manager and educator, stood next to long rows of plants ranging from tiny seedlings to sprawling, leafy butternut squash. “I had prepared for the squash to take up the equivalent of four beds, the way my other ones are, but they’ve ended up taking up more than that,” 28-year-old Carman-Sweeney said. “Closer to six.” He pointed out beets, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, spinach, cilantro, kale, beans, lettuce, dill, bell peppers, parsley, flowers, radishes and the unruly butternut squash. It’s only about a fifth of the land the IU Campus Farm at Hinkle-Garton to grow food on, but it’s a start. The IU Campus Farm is in its first season of growing food and welcoming students, staff and faculty to its grounds. The 10-acre farm uses and teaches sustainable, organic farming practices, provides opportunities for research and offers people a chance to connect with their food through hands-on work. The farm was rooted in an idea cultivated by IU Campus Farm co-directors James Farmer and Lea Woodard and IU staff and faculty members. Farmer and Woodard wrote a grant proposal

more than a year ago to fund their dream project of having a campus farm. Now, it’s a reality. Right now, 90 percent of the food grown on the campus farm goes to dining halls, primarily the Indiana Memorial Union and Wright Food Court. The other 10 percent goes to local food pantries, such as Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard and the Crimson Cupboard food pantry, CarmanSweeney said. “Your average meal item on

your plate has traveled over 1,800 miles to get to you,” CarmanSweeney said. “Our food travels a mile or two.” Woodard, who also manages Hilltop Garden and Nature Center, said the process of growing food, getting it ready for sale and selling it in different contexts will be one of the learning opportunities students will have on the farm, setting it apart from Hilltop. “IU doesn’t have an agriculture department, so we’re kind of

coming at this from a little bit of a different angle and perspective,” Carman-Sweeney said. Farmer, also an associate professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, has been on the faculty end of organizing the farm. Some of Farmer’s fellow SPEA faculty members are planning soil science research projects and have classes based around SEE FARM, PAGE 5

Five Guys to open on Kirkwood in mid-November By Alex Hardgrave | @a_hardgrave


Evolve Bloomington is located at 1425 N. Dunn St. Students have been required to move out while a water leak is being repaired.

Water leak forces move-outs By Alex Hardgrave | @a_hardgrave

Students living in Evolve apartments have dealt with delayed move-ins and unfinished units and have now been asked to temporarily move out. Property Manager Sarah Maxon said in an email to the Indiana Daily Student on Sept. 18 that residents were required to move out while a water leak was repaired. “Our goal is to have them back into their unit before a week's time,” Maxon said in the email. Students received an email from Evolve asking them to respond by Sept. 14, so Evolve could create a repair schedule. Junior Beau Mansker and sophomore Claire Scahill said they have been asked to move out but are not yet sure when they will have to. The leak is causing mold to appear in students’ units. Mansker said there is mold above his shower. “Just seeing the mold is frustrating,” said Mansker. He said the situation is

a major inconvenience because he will have to pack clothes and make sure all perishable food is taken care of before leaving. Students are not expected to move their furniture, as they were told everything will be bubble-wrapped for protection during the repairs. This temporary evacuation comes after construction delays forced some students to move in later than the original move-in date. All students have been able to move in now, but construction is ongoing. “There is construction everyday,” Scahill said. “Me and my roommates wake up to it every morning at 7 a.m.” Mansker and Scahill were able to move in on the scheduled day but reported issues with their units when they moved in. “Move-in was horrible,” Scahill said. “There was so much construction going on still. There were a bunch of angry parents. We weren’t aware that it would look the way it did.” Scahill said her roommate’s floor was soaked with

water when they moved in. Fans had to be brought in to dry it out, and Scahill’s roommate wasn’t able to move her things into her room for a few days. “No one really expected it to be like this,” Scahill said. She said she felt the pictures Evolve was posting on its Instagram prior to movein made the building appear more completed than it was. Mansker said his unit was covered in dust and that a lot of things were still unpainted when he moved in. For the current mold issue, residents have two choices. They can either choose to be put in a hotel and receive $60 dollars a night, or find housing with someone they know and get $150 a day plus a daily rent credit while the leak is repaired. Mansker opted to stay with a friend because he was not sure what hotel he would be put in. He also said that he calculated it would be a much better value to get the $150 dollars and rent credit. The rent credit goes toward their

accounts with Evolve, but Mansker said he was unsure how he would be receiving the additional stipend. Mansker and Scahill said Evolve has credited back August rent and is giving half off September rent. “I know I’m getting compensation for this in rent, but I’ve paid for this apartment for all of the amenities and then the amenities are not even all done yet,” Mansker said. Most issues mentioned have been fixed. Mansker said when they make maintenance requests, the work is done quickly, though he added there is still a cabinet in his kitchen that is missing studs. “I will say they are working their butts off here to get this stuff done,” he said. Mansker said after living in Evolve for a month, he can see how much has been accomplished in the project. “But having said that, I’ve lived here for a month and all this was supposed to be done a month ago,” Mansker said.

A Five Guys is being built on Kirkwood Avenue. Franchisee Paul Gillard said he hopes to have it open in mid-November. Gillard’s company, Gill Guys Group, is a Five Guys franchising company. This will be their fourth Five Guys location in Indiana — the others are in Terre Haute, Columbus and another location in Bloomington. The first Bloomington location, on College Mall Road, opened in 2010. Gillard and his wife, Carol, started their franchising career when they owned Bloomington Sportsplex. They wanted to offer healthy food at the Sportsplex, so they put a Subway in. In 2009, they sold the Sportsplex, now the Twin Lakes Recreational Center, but kept the Subway franchise. Then, wanting to expand his food franchise business, Gillard added the Five Guys.

Later, they sold the Subways and now just own Five Guys. “We just want to concentrate on the Five Guys brand,” Gillard said. Jim Gerstbauer, Monroe County building commissioner, said the permit was issued Sept. 5. RenCon Services is the contractor for the project. Gillard said they completed demolition and started the building process two weeks ago. The project has been in the works for a year and a half. They took possession of the building, which was once a Panda Express and a Bloomington Bagel Company, in July 2018. Gillard said the location on Kirkwood Avenue is great because it's close to campus gets a lot of foot traffic. “It's the right fit for the student population right now, and although there are places that serve hamburgers on Kirkwood and on the square, there is not a true hamburger-focused restaurant anywhere down there," said Gillard.

Revised scooter parking policy to Mangkhut creates different problems be released soon By Joey Bowling | @jwbowling08

Typhoon Mangkhut, which made landfall Sept. 14 in the Philippines, made sophomore Lucent Ting remember braving typhoons back in Hong Kong. Windows were locked, instead of shut. Doors were shut. Nothing was left exposed to cause damages. From Sept. 14 to Sept. 18, Hurricane Florence ravaged the United States. Meanwhile, from Sept. 14 to Sept. 16., Typhoon Mangkhut battered the Philippines and Hong Kong, among other places. Ting said even though he is at IU and his younger brother is studying in London, they were not worried for their family when Mangkhut hit Hong Kong. “We knew what was going on even though we weren’t there,” Ting said. “I knew that they were going to be safe.” Ting said his parents do not live near the affected area. At its strongest, Florence was a Category 4 hurricane. Though typhoons are measured using a different system in Hong Kong and the Philippines, Mangkhut would have been the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. Cody Kirkpatrick, a lecturer in atmospheric science, said there is a small difference between typhoons and hurricanes. The key difference is location. Kirkpatrick said in the Atlantic Ocean, the tropical cyclones are called hurricanes. However, if they form in the Western Pacific, they are called typhoons. Even though they were

near-identical storm types, both posed different forms of danger. Mangkhut had stronger winds, while Florence had heavier rainfall. Mangkhut was stronger than Florence when it reached landfall, Kirkpatrick said. Wind is only one thing to consider when determining the strength of the storm, Kirkpatrick said. Florence left 35 inches of rain when the center of the storm hit the coast. “The winds do not tell the whole story,” Kirkpatrick said. Kirkpatrick said a lot of storm management in the United States happens proactively. Many people in coastal and beachfront communities leave their homes before the storm hits, packing up their belongings and pets. But not everyone is given that opportunity. “In some cases that is not possible,” Kirkpatrick said. “Some older populations in New Orleans for Katrina —

the poor and people of color — many of them were not able to evacuate.” However, Mangkhut was not a special occurrence for Hong Kong and the Philippines, Kirkpatrick said. “They deal with troubles like tropical cyclones and typhoons all the time, that was pretty common,” Kirkpatrick said.

“The winds do not tell the whole story.” Cody Kirkpatrick, Atmospheric Science Lecturer

The Philippines last dealt with a typhoon this severe in 2013, when Typhoon Haiyan hit. Chanh Kieu, an assistant professor of atmospheric science, said the Philippines get approximately 12 to 13 typhoons a year. The Philippines are most affected during the typhoon season. “Almost all of the storms

in the western Pacific somehow influence the Philippines,” Kieu said. Kieu said another factor in the preparation for typhoons and hurricanes is the accuracy of the storm tracking team. Kirkpatrick said we may be seeing more of these storms as time continues, due to the increased thermal energy in the ocean. Hurricanes get their energy from warm ocean water, and records show temperatures have been increasing due to climate change. “Based on that, the expectation would be, if there is more energy in the ocean available, it is likely that the hurricanes that develop could be stronger,” Kirkpatrick said. However, Kieu said that may not be the case. The stronger storms may be a symptom of climate change, and while that theory should not be discredited, storms gaining strength could be caused by many different phenomena.

IU’s revised policy on scooter parking and usage is expected to be released in the next week. The policy is currently being formally revised by several IU administrators, said Director of Parking Operations Amanda Turnipseed. Emphasis is being placed on the parking of scooters and the safety concerns involved in riding them on campus. This revision comes after the introduction of Bird scooters to Bloomington a week and a half ago. “It is our expectation and anticipation that the regulations that will come along with this revised policy are going to stress that scooters need to parked near or at a bike rack,” Turnipseed said. Scooters that end up in landscaped areas, in the middle of the sidewalk or in extreme places like the Jordan River will be impounded by the University, Tur-

nipseed said. IU will then work with the full-time Bird employee in Bloomington to give them back. Details about the fine of an impounded scooter are still being ironed out, but Turnipseed said Bird is in full cooperation and agreement with the impounding procedures. Turnipseed said IUBloomington isn’t the first IU campus to encounter problems with scooters. IU-Purdue University Indianapolis has had scooters on its campus since the scooters were dropped in Indianapolis in June and has formulated its own scooter policy. “We’re trying to address it not solely from a Bloomington campus only perspective but from a University-wide perspective for all the campuses,” Turnipseed said. The revised scooter policy will be online when completed. Current policies on scooters can be viewed on the IU policies website.

Student Legal Services is not just for tickets By Caroline Anders | @clineands

All IU students pay about eight dollars every semester to Student Legal Services. What many don’t know is that means they have a lawyer when they need one. “Where are you ever going to get a lawyer for eight dollars?” SLS staff attorney Marc Abplanalp asked. “We are your lawyers. Come see us.” When Rachel Rogers was an undergrad at IU, she didn’t know about SLS. Now, she’s finishing up her last year at the Maurer School of Law and interning for them. “A problem we encounter a lot is when students see us, they think, ‘Oh, that’s just for people who get drinking tickets or get caught smoking,’” she said. SLS can’t represent students in criminal cases, cases against the University or student versus student cases. However, there’s still a lot they can help with. The office can represent students in any small claims court cases and give advice on how to proceed with criminal charges. The eight dollar payment comes out of IU’s student activities fee. Abplanalp said about a third of the cases his office

deals with involve landlordtenant disputes. Bloomington is a college town with a captive housing market, and landlords know that many students won’t read their leases or seek legal help. “We see leases that say things that aren’t enforceable all of the time, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try,” Abplanalp said. “For every student who comes in here, there’s probably 10 who don’t and just suck it up and pay the thousands that the landlord is asking for.”

“For every student who comes in here, there’s probably 10 who don’t and just suck it up and pay the thousands that the landlord is asking for.” Marc Abplanalp, SLS staff attorney

If those students had gone to SLS, any of the office’s four staff attorneys would have looked over their lease on the spot. Students facing criminal charges can go to SLS for advice and guidance on what to expect at the court-

house. Those charged with victimless crimes — drinking tickets, marijuana possession and others — will likely be offered entry into a pretrial diversion program by the prosecutor’s office. Successful completion of pretrial diversion means charges will be dismissed and there will be no conviction. Abplanalp said that’s an important distinction because employers generally care whether their staff have been convicted of a crime, not charged with one. Attorneys and interns both can give students advice on how to talk to the judge and prosecutor, how to file forms and even what to wear on the day of their trial. Beyond standard college cases, SLS also handles a slew of other legal proceedings. Name changes, gender changes, immigration law, asylum applications, incorporating businesses and divorce — they do it all and more. “We’re just trying to get you taken care of, so you can move on with your life and get back to your studies,” Abplanalp said. Even in cases SLS doesn’t win, Abplanalp said it’s better to learn from your mistakes behind a paid-for college lawyer than to wait

until you have to hire an attorney later in life. He also said it’s important that students know their rights before they get in sticky situations. Abplanalp recommended being polite but firm when dealing with police. If you’ve done something illegal, Abplanalp said usually the only reason police have the evidence they need to charge you with a crime is because you gave them the evidence — even though you didn’t have to. Police cannot force anyone to answer questions or consent to searches. “It would be better if you didn’t have the Solo cup, but you don’t have to tell them what’s in the Solo

cup,” he said. “If you said One-third of 2016 student no to a breathalyzer, they’d legal cases involved leases have to get a warrant.” Abplanalp said when 5% 4% SLS sets up tables at new 5% student events, parents don’t like to talk to them. “What we hear is ‘My kid’s not going to need you,’” 7% 33% he said. “And okay, great! I 9% hope your kid never gets a drinking ticket, but is your 23% kid going to live off campus? You want them to meet us and come see us and bring Landlord-tenant their lease in.” Criminal Abplanalp said students just need to know SLS is Administrative there.

The Monroe County Public Library is located on Kirkwood Avenue and was founded in 1820. The library is planning to open a third branch.

Library seeks input on new branch By Emily Isaacman | @emilyisaacman

After decades of consideration, the Monroe County Public Library is planning a new branch for the southwest area of Monroe County. The third location would serve one of the fastest growing areas of the county, said Marilyn Wood, director of MCPL. New businesses are flocking to the area, roads are expanding and housing developments are springing up, but the area is underserved by libraries and internet access. “We feel very positive about a new library offering services to people who may not have services now,” Wood said. Some southwest residents have difficulty coming to the main branch downtown, Wood said, especially due to parking issues. MCPL has spent the last couple years working on a specific plan to serve this area. Earlier this year, MCPL

commissioned Matheu Architects, PC for a feasibility study for the new branch. The company is currently working with MCPL to collect feedback on services and programming southwest residents would like. The location would serve residents of Indian Creek township, Van Buren township and parts of Perry and Clear Creek townships, said Christine Matheu, president of Matheu Architects. Aside from books and computers, Matheu said, libraries are starting to offer more services distinct to the communities they serve. “Libraries nowadays are really becoming community centers,” Matheu said. Some people in the southwest area don’t have access to the internet, Matheu said, forcing them to use their cell phones as hotspots. A library would provide free internet. Not only is the company assessing potential services inside the library, such as general reading areas, performance spaces, study

spaces and conference rooms but also services outside the building, such as an amphitheater and a community garden. MCPL and Matheu Architects led one community conversation last week and will offer two more Monday and Thursday. “We’re trying to come up with a library that everybody in these areas will feel like it’s their own library,” Matheu said. Feedback from the community conversations will be used to develop a service program detailing the types of services the library should provide, Matheu said. That information will then be matched with a space program, which will start to establish the types and sizes of spaces the building will need. From there, the architect company will start identifying site locations, and will test a prototype building plan. They will present a report of their findings and recommendations by December.

Wood said she anticipates a consistent tax rate for the new branch. MCPL has been prudent with financial planning in recent years, Wood said, and Bloomington’s growing population has allowed MCPL to collect more revenue than it needs for its operational costs. Meanwhile, bonds have covered larger projects such as replacing the roof of the main location and renovating the Ellettsville branch. The tax rate has stayed constant as a result. The second community conversation is Monday from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m. at Broadview Learning Center Community Room. Another opportunity comes this Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m. at Batchelor Heights Clubhouse. People can also provide feedback through an online survey on MCPL’s website, by email or by phone. “To have the best services in any library, we need to understand what the people who will be making use of it need,” Wood said.

A monthy radio show, Hearabouts: Asian American Midwest Radio, first aired in April 2018. It presents interviews, discussions and music featuring Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The show is run by staff and students of the Asian Cultural Center. Hearabouts engineer and IU student Joyce Lam said they ask critical questions about identity, culture, community and shared assumptions. It is a way for discussion and dialogue around issues important to the Bloomington community and beyond to be heard. Graduate assistant Keiko McCullough said the idea for the radio program came from Melanie Castillo-Cullather, director of the Asian Cultural Center. McCullough said it’s a great idea to have Asian-American perspectives and stories about issues related to Asian-Americans told over public radio. McCullough said this is one of the first predominantly Asian-American radio shows in the Midwest. “It’s empowering to hear Asian-American voices on air and narratives that are often not talked about or looked over,” McCullough said. The show discusses the experiences of Asian-Americans who grew up in the Midwest and those who live in the area for their education or are new to the area

Their episodes often include special guests. Past guests include Vimala Phongsavanh, the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum Policy Director and Eric Langowski, a student assistant at the Asian Culture Center. During the show’s citizenship/identity episode, Langowski discussed IU’s racist enrollment policy toward Japanese and JapaneseAmericans during World War II. On average, the programs receive around 152 listeners on the WFHB website. Their most popular episode, Citizenship/Identity, had around 396 listeners as of Sept. 20. The “Citizenship/Identity” episode received vpositive feedback and discussed a part of history IU refuses to acknowledge, Lam said. She said the episode showed her that the program has allowed people to acknowledge the past and can reach out to educate listeners. McCullough said she hopes the show’s audience is entertained and gains a sense of curiosity. For Lam, it’s about aiming to educate and spread awareness.

Editors Emma Getz and Ethan Smith



'Sesame Street' should respect the loving relationship of Bert and Ernie Emma Getz is a junior in English.

In 1978, Ernie wakes Bert up in the middle of the night to ask him a question in the form of a heartfelt song. “Do you like me? Am I okay? Do you like me? If you do, please say.” Bert continues the song, singing, "Yes, I like you. That is right, I like you," and that he is ready to go back to bed. In a Sept. 16 exclusive interview with Queerty, Mark Saltzman reveals his experiences writing for “Sesame Street,” and specifically his experiences as a gay man on the set. As Saltzman often wrote for Bert and Ernie, the big question was whether or not he wrote them as a couple. He said, “I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert and Ernie, they were. I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them.” He also stated that he and his partner Arnold Glassman were referred to as Bert and Ernie, as their relationship dynamic was very similar. "That’s what I had in my life, a Bert and Ernie relation-

ship," said Saltzman. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational group behind “Sesame Street,” released a statement Sept. 18 via Twitter regarding Bert and Ernie’s relationship, stating that the two were always meant to be best friends and that Muppets do not have a sexual orientation. The original creator of Bert and Ernie, Frank Oz, even weighed in on Twitter, saying, “It seems Mr. Mark Saltzman was asked if Bert and Ernie are gay. It's fine that he feels they are. They're not, of course. But why that question? Does it really matter? Why the need to define people as only gay? There's much more to a human being than just straightness or gayness.” The writers and producers are condemning what has been read by many as an epic, intergenerational love story. Not only should “Sesame Street” allow people to interpret Bert and Ernie’s relationship however they wish, but they should also embrace these interpretations and honor past gay writ-

ers and viewers by honoring this interpretation. This is not to say that Bert and Ernie should be changed in the way they are written to prove that they are in love. It is to acknowledge the fact that, from a cultural and historical standpoint, they already are, and the important legacies of the show’s past gay writers should not be undermined by saying gayness does not matter. The current statements by the official “Sesame Street” team come from a place of disrespect. Saltzman stated in the interview that much of how he wrote Bert and Ernie was influenced by his own relationship. He said he tried to pitch more LGBT education for the show but was turned down every time, despite the progressive efforts of the show in other areas. The show has always been a frontrunner in diversity and inclusion in children’s programming. They have aired episodes that directly tackle racism, HIV, disability, incarceration and autism. They have even briefly depicted families with same-sex par-

ents, but have not featured any segments regarding LGBT education. As “Sesame Street” has always been progressive compared to other children’s shows, it is shameful that they have not moved to teach children about the LGBT community, which would be beneficial in a child’s journey of learning tolerance and acceptance. It would be especially helpful for children with same-sex parents, LGBT family members, friends and LGBT children and young adults themselves. This is not to say that it necessarily needs to be Ernie and Bert who educate children on LGBT topics, as the show has a successful model of introducing new characters to teach the others. There is nothing wrong with introducing same-sex relationships and LGBT identities to young children. They are not inherently any different than the heterosexual relationships they see on every other piece of media. Despite the lack of effort on the part of “Sesame Street," Bert and Ernie have

always found themselves in the cultural forefront when it comes to gay activism. Perhaps their most iconic appearance was on the cover of the New Yorker in 2013 celebrating the Supreme Court overturn of the Defense of Marriage Act and the separate decision that Prop 8 did not have standing. When it comes down to it, Sesame Workshop did not need to release a message about the relationship between Bert and Ernie. A simple message does not change the way the characters are fondly remembered by viewers of all ages, and it shows a need to cater to the Republican senators threatening to defund PBS. The 2019 federal budget unveiled earlier in the year proposed cutting all funding to PBS and NPR. Republican politicians have been in favor of this for years, mainly due to claims that the stations are left-leaning. If educating children about diversity and inclusion of all people is somehow partisan, then so be it. It seems that Republicans are, like always, on the wrong side

of history and lack the moral capacity to care about other people. That being said, ignorance is not always easily defined by party lines. Catering to the ignorance of Republican senators and disrespecting a gay writer still contributes to the overall culture of complacency and bigotry. It is more than just two gay Muppets — it is honoring writers like Saltzman, who wrote during the height of the AIDS crisis, and those who found solace in his writing. In the Queerty interview, after sharing all of his fond memories from “Sesame Street,” he reflected on this. “It’s interesting," Saltzman said. "That was some of the happiest time of my life, except everybody kept dying.” The good news is that the recent statements by the writers and producers will not change the way viewers fondly remember the characters. They will forever be a gentle and loving odd couple singing in the middle of the night asking, “Do you like me?”


A new library in Bloomington will help the community Within the next three years, the Monroe County Public Library plans to add a third branch to the southwest side of Bloomington. Architects have been hired, and the library is now asking for community feedback and holding public conversations about the addition. The southwest area of Bloomington has a fast growing population, and already being underserved in library services, would benefit greatly from this new addition, which would be abundant in helpful resources for the entire community. Libraries are perhaps the only places to offer completely free educational resources. Along with books, which you can have access even from your phones with the help of apps like Overdrive, libraries also offer access to internet and educational programs.

The Monroe County Public Library currently has programs such as computer programming for children and teens, homework help, workshops for the LGBT community, conversation groups for those learning English as a new language and more. A new branch would make these programs even more far reaching in the community for people of all socioeconomic statuses. Not only do libraries offer spectacular resources, they are also an essential part of creating safe communities for underserved or homeless people in the area. Perhaps the most important part of a library is that there is no underlying assumption of spending money once you walk in. Bloomington is filled with shops and restaurants, which is necessary for a busy college city, but the library is

one of the only public spaces that allows its patrons to simply exist without paying. Therefore, for underserved communities, a new library would be important for otherwise unavailable educational opportunities or simply a safe, warm place to go inside. Of course, the library is not the only resource for Bloomington’s homeless population. Wheeler Mission, a homeless shelter in the southwest area, does lots of work including meals, shelter, addiction recovery programs and more. There is also A Friend’s Place (Shalom Community Center), a nonreligious overnight shelter that also specializes in crisis casework and hunger relief. The Middle Way House is an emergency shelter for those fleeing domestic violence or human trafficking. These are only a few of

the many other resources in Bloomington for homeless and underserved communities. A library in the same area would benefit these places as well, acting as a separate but complementary resource. Also, while some homeless shelters like Wheeler Mission are Christian groups centered in Christian programming, public libraries are completely secular. While Wheeler Mission does not discriminate on behalf of religion, it is helpful to have secular resources for those that want them. Another benefit of this new branch is that, according to the Monroe Public Library, it will not cost any taxpayer dollars, which is always a concern for some. They will most likely take out a bond to pay for the building’s construction and operating costs will be covered by money saved


by the library over the past few years. In short, a new library would be beneficial in many different ways, whether it be increasing access to education and literacy or providing

a new opportunity for free public space. Hopefully the community will respond positively and the Monroe County Public Library will continue taking steps toward making this new branch a reality.


North Carolina General Assembly needs to care more about global warming Jack Palmer is a freshman in computer science.

Hurricane Florence has destroyed much of the coastal plains in my home state of North Carolina. In fact, it destroyed much of my hometown as it crashed into the east coast. North Carolina is no stranger to hurricanes, though; every year either the residual or direct effects of hurricanes are felt by the coastal state. However, like many fellow Republican states, North Carolina refuses to do any-

thing about the issue. The fact is, due to global warming, these hurricanes will only get worse and state legislators refuse to care. North Carolina may house one of the most corrupt general assemblies in the country, but they still should be doing everything in their power to prevent it from being destroyed. They still have to live there, after all. Instead, the North Carolina General Assembly has seen fit to pass a law that inhibits the use of studies on rising sea levels. I guess this would be ex-

pected from the same assembly that forced transgender people to use the bathroom of their gender at birth, a bill which directly negatively affected both North Carolina’s reputation and GDP growth. Yet, I still expect my state assembly to save the very ground they live on. It is ludicrous that they would rather turn a blind eye than save the beautiful state I was raised in. The entire coastal plane will turn into a floodplain by the time I’m 40. Such flooding would be catastrophic for North Carolina. Tourism would decrease significantly, there would be

millions in property damage each year, and most importantly, thousands of people would leave for drier land. I care about my state and I do not want to see it devastated by the rising sea levels. However, I do not believe that anything will be done to prevent that from happening. Nothing short of careful planning, innovative shore conversation efforts and effective environmental policies could save the coastal plains from being permanently flooded. Unfortunately instead, we have shortsighted fools writing the laws

in North Carolina for shortterm economic gain. The North Carolina General Assembly continues to write unimportant laws instead of tackling the climate change issue. Recently, bill810 was introduced that allows schools to not have to reach the required amount of days if they have to close school due to extreme inclement weather — a bit ironic to say the least. We, as a voting populace in Indiana, need to elect leaders can see past their own greed and lifespans, and who will not make similar mistakes like those of the as-

sembly in North Carolina. If we do not, the damage done today might not be obvious, but it will detrimentally impact our children’s lives. Register to vote, and then use that vote wisely. It is our duty as citizens to both elect officials and hold them accountable to their actions. If we do not perform the latter, then there is no point to elections at all. Democracy is a two-way street between the constituency and the politician. Sadly, North Carolina has forgotten that aspect in favor of complacency.

Stauder continues to do practically anything a coach or player may need him to during practice, except for loading dirty laundry because of the germs. It’s part of the reason both Allen and Hart value his contributions, and all of IU’s equipment managers, so greatly. “They get yelled at, they get screamed at like they’re players and they just show up and they smile,” Hart said. “So it’s one of those things where you just appreciate them so much, and especially Matt. He’s just a great kid. He’s special.” Prior to his cancer diagnosis, Stauder was faced with the sudden death of his father last year from a heart attack. The one-year anniversary of his death coincided with IU’s 2018 seasonopening game at Florida International, a game the Hoosiers won 38-28. Following the game in the IU locker room, Allen presented Stauder with the game ball. “It’s a thank you. He’s part of our win,” Allen said. “I just wanted to thank him, number one, and number two, I wanted him to know how much we love him and care about him.” More than four months after starting chemotherapy, Stauder said he is nearing the end of his treatments.

Stauder’s 11th chemotherapy treatment out of a total of 12 will take place Monday, and he was told at his last doctor’s appointment that based on his CAT scan following his eighth treatment, his tumor site has shrunk by two-thirds. After the chemotherapy treatments are complete, Stauder will get a full body PET scan to see if the cancer has spread. “Going into chemo, I obviously didn’t know what to expect,” Stauder said. “So I was a little bit nervous, but after I got like my first two or three under my belt, I kind of knew what to expect each time.” Stauder’s story has been used by IU’s coaches, several of whom attended the fundraiser, to illustrate what is and isn’t important in life. “You realize that nothing is really that serious,” Hart said. “Losing doesn’t kill you, making mistakes doesn’t kill you, but cancer kills you. When you realize that, then you realize that it puts everything in perspective.” Stauder said it’s unbelievable to him how many people have helped him, and those people are the reason he continues his dedication to the IU program. “I could stay at home and lay in bed or whatever,” Stauder said. “But I want to pay it back to them for everybody who’s been supportive of me.”

and the fact that it rains is what keeps us alive,” Carman-Sweeney said. “So I think it’s very important and something we want to emphasize here is regenerating the soil and maintaining its health because it’s a complex living system.” While some sustainable practices take more manpower, Carman-Sweeney argues this is in fact a good thing. “Something I want to emphasize with this project is that we want to involve more people in agriculture,” Carman-Sweeney said. He said the campus

farm will exceed their goal of 1,000 students visiting the farm within just the first year. Volunteer work days also open up the farm to anyone wanting to get their hands in the dirt. Work days are on Fridays from 12:30 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the farm which is located at 2920 E. 10th St. “So many of us work jobs that you sit at a computer all day,” Carman-Sweeney said. “People don’t feel that their work is very meaningful. Growing food is very meaningful.”

be all right with people going bankrupt over medical bills,” Greene said. “He is not on anyone’s side.” Green said Kavanaugh does not have an open mind toward progressive views, something he said he does not want in the Supreme Court. “I don’t think we need

any more conservatives in the Court,” Greene said. “We have a Supreme Court now that is hostile towards progressive views, and that hurts progressive people everywhere.” Goals of the protest were to discuss broader issues and concerns of protesters, and using Ka-

vanaugh’s nomination as a way to get people involved in them, Davis said. “The Kavanaugh question represents a lot of bigger issues,” Davis said. “We are advocating through his lense because he is the most immediate threat.” Organizers said they felt that a gathering of

protesters would be the most effective strategy to create change because officials are more likely to listen to a collective voice. “Protest is a form of political communication that is likely to get the attention of elected officials,” Davis said. “If you call, that is just one person.”

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton attended, and he said he was happy to see citizens standing up for their beliefs. “I am always proud to see that Bloomington is full of activists,” Hamilton said. “That is how change happens. If you don’t fight, you’re not going to win.”

IU splits first two Big Ten matches 3-2

By Stefan Krajisnik | @skrajisnik3


Top Freshman Abigail Westenhofer sets for junior Hayden Huybers during IU’s game against Illinois on Sept. 23 in University Gym. Illinois defeated IU, 3-2. Center Junior Victoria Brisack goes for the ball against Illinois on Sept. 23 in University Gym. Bottom Freshman Breana Edwards squares up for a hit from Illinois on Sept. 23 in University Gym. Illinois defeated IU 3-2 making it IU’s first loss in Big Ten play this season.

It was not a typical postgame press conference for a volleyball team that let a 2-0 lead slip away. IU volleyball did that in University Gym on Sunday against No. 8 Illinois, falling 3-2, but the case could be made that the happiest person in the press room postgame was Coach Steve Aird. “I’m not a guy who pouts,” Aird said. “If the mood is somber I’ll leave that up to other people.” The Hoosiers were without their top attacker, junior Kendall Beerman, who is dealing with a lower body injury and is day-to-day. With what Aird describes as little depth on the team, sophomore Kamryn Malloy was forced to step in and take her spot. Malloy collected nine kills on a .231 kill percentage. “When people come to programs, you tell them you’ve got to be ready to compete,” Aird said. “She works hard. She’s a great teammate. Without her we’re in a different system and we’re not going five with Illinois.” A team that was 1-19 in conference play last season will not have the highest expectations for the following season. For Aird, it was not a game the team blew. “The term ‘blew’ would insinuate that somehow we were supposed to win the match” he said. “They’re disappointed, but my job is to remind

them that we’re not the number nine team in the country.” The loss comes two days after the team defeated Northwestern in four sets Friday. IU had many players contribute in the win, highlighted by a .700 hitting percentage from junior Deyshia Lofton. As IU looked to close it out down the stretch, Lofton stepped up in the fourth set by getting five kills within the first 10 points. “I knew we had to do something to get the energy up to takeover the match,” Lofton said. “I put some balls away today and helped the team. That’s something we want to do every night.” IU will play its first midweek match Wednesday when the team takes on Ohio State on the road. “In the Big Ten you’ve got to be able to play whistle-to-whistle,” Aird said. “We’re going to lose a lot. We’re going to have to get up and be a pro the next day.” IU has a 10-3 record now and hasn’t lost back-to-back games yet this season. “The Big Ten’s the best conference, so it’s like this every night,” senior Elizabeth Asdell said. “We have to learn from it and do better the next time.”

Tailgating and costumes highlight volleyball’s opener By Stefan Krajisnik | @skrajisnik3

“The New IU” was the message all over social media after Steve Aird took over as the head coach of the volleyball program. This includes new results on the court and new energy in practice, but what might be most important is a new culture. The opening weekend of home play was a step in that direction, as University Gym saw an environment unlike many in years past, as the Hoosiers defeated Northwestern before losing to Illinois on Sunday. Against Northwestern, a DJ sat in the student section pregame, electrifying the crowd as it poured in. Buckets packed the stands as a drumbeat created by the students echoed throughout the arena. People in shark and dinosaur costumes stood out in the bleachers. “The students are learning it’s going to take time to build a culture,” Aird said. “That type of energy and excitement is what I wanted to

do when I took the job.” The buckets were eventually put away because Northwestern complained it was a noisemaker. However, Aird thinks otherwise. “Hashtag we want buckets,” he said. “It doesn’t mean we’re going to win all the time, but I want it to be fun.” Before the game, students gathered outside University Gym for the first organized IU volleyball tailgate. Free food was provided for students, while the IU Drumline set the mood. “It’s a culture change. You’ve got to come see it for yourself,” Student Athletic Board chair Kobe Fleming said. “They’re just trying to make it more like a party, getting it more riled up — trying to have it feel like anything is possible.” For fans that frequently come out to support the volleyball team, it was clear that things under Coach Aird are different. “I’ve been on top of it, and I was pretty excited about what we’ve been hearing and seeing,” season ticket holder Jimmy Johnson said.

“He made a statement that he was going to fill the arena, and I wanted to get here early.” As a team that went 1-19 in Big Ten Conference play last season, volleyball saw only one home game with more than 1,000 fans in attendance. The Hoosiers already passed that number with 1,426 fans in attendance for the 2018 opener against Northwestern. Attendance on Sunday was 967. “It was completely different. Student Athletic Board did a great job,” junior middle blocker Deyshia Lofton said. “We made U Gym a hard place to play in.” Delays in the construction of Wilkinson Hall have forced the Hoosiers to play at University Gym, but that won't stop Aird from trying to create a fun environment. "No one’s all that fired up about playing in this building, me included, but it’s a tough place to play," Aird said. "We expect the crowds to be great as the year goes on."

Hoosiers doom themselves in conference loss By Sean Mintert | @sean_mintert20

A great opportunity was met with a disappointing performance. That’s how IU Coach Tom Allen described IU’s 35-21 loss to No. 24 Michigan State on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium. Thanks to two turnovers and untimely penalties, IU was unable to get out of its own way, which resulted in the Hoosiers dropping to 3-1 overall and 0-1 in Big Ten play. “I thought we were inconsistent in a lot of areas,” Allen said. “Definitely some positives to build off of, but we have a young football team that didn’t respond to some key situations and made some poor choices.” Those poor choices included two penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct and a targeting penalty, leading to the ejection of sophomore husky Marcelino Ball. IU was penalized a total of six times for 85 yards, and that’s not including a defensive pass interference call that was wiped out by a penalty assessed to Michigan State on the same play. Two big injuries hurt IU before penalties ever could, as redshirt senior receiver Luke Timian did not dress for the game and senior defensive lineman Jacob Robinson dressed but did not play.

The absence of two experienced leaders was felt on both sides of the ball, but sophomore receiver Whop Philyor lamented the loss of one of IU’s most experienced pass catchers. “We missed Luke a lot,” Philyor said. Aside from a few bad penalties, the Hoosier defense was solid all night. IU forced the Spartans to punt six times, and held Michigan State’s rushing game in check until freshman wide receiver Jalen Nailor broke free for a 75-yard touchdown run with 3:17 left in the game. Nailor’s run was a backbreaker for the Hoosiers, as Philyor had just taken a short pass 65 yards for a touchdown to bring IU to within seven points. “That was an opportunity that we had as a defense to finish the game,” Allen said. “We just didn’t execute. That’s on me.” As good as the defense was on Saturday night, the IU offense struggled to get going against the Spartans, who boast the top rushing defense in the country. Michigan State’s dominance against the run was on full display, as the Hoosiers were limited to just 29 rushing yards on 35 carries. Allen said while Michigan State was an elite defensive unit, he expected more from the offensive line. “It was tough sledding for our offensive line,” Allen

said. “They’ve been great so far, but they didn’t have a good night tonight and we’ve got to get better.” Despite a rough game on the ground, IU was able to take advantage of Michigan

State’s shaky pass defense at times. Sophomore quarterback Peyton Ramsey threw for a season-high 272 yards, with Philyor as his standout target. Philyor finished with 13


catches for 148 yards and a touchdown, which came late in the fourth quarter to cut the Spartan lead to seven points. After the game, Philyor was confident, saying the

Hoosiers were just a few plays away from a totally different result. “We can match their talent any day,” Philyor said. “We were just always shooting ourselves in the foot.”


IU drains hope from fans in Michigan State loss Cameron Drummond is a junior in journalism.

The comeback was over before it started. The game was lost before it could be won. The hope was drained as it was built. It was business as usual for IU on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium — removing belief and hope from those who dared to believe anything was different about the 2018 Hoosiers. IU’s 35-21 loss to No. 24 Michigan State was a seemingly predetermined result executed in predetermined fashion. Like a record on repeat, forcing the same menacing song into the eardrums of IU fans, the Hoosiers made preventable mistakes and failed to change the perception of the program. Against a big-name, bigtime opponent, and a crowd of more than 45,000 spectators, the Hoosiers fell flat on their faces. “Disappointing performance and outcome tonight,” IU Coach Tom Allen said. “Had a great opportunity as a program and didn’t take advantage of it.” IU’s players and coaches deliver that second sentence to media members following every loss to a conference opponent, without fail. It’s a true statement. With

a victory, IU could have beaten a ranked opponent for the first time since 2016’s home win against Michigan State. The Hoosiers could have started 4-0 for just the seventh time in program history, and with next weekend’s trip to lowly Rutgers, IU would have likely been 5-0 entering its game at Ohio State. Those were the opportunities, the possibilities that will never be realized. But there shouldn’t be surprise from anybody. This is what IU does. Late in the third quarter of Saturday’s contest, the Hoosiers trailed the Spartans 28-7. Fans began to leave Memorial Stadium in droves as the IU offense turned stag-

nant thanks to a nonexistent rushing attack. IU was set to play out a meaningless fourth quarter and suffer a loss by three or four possessions. But, hope flickered. Junior defensive back Khalil Bryant intercepted Michigan State junior quarterback Brian Lewerke, and IU kicked a field goal to make it 28-10. Then-freshman linebacker Cam Jones intercepted Lewerke just three minutes later. The Hoosiers turned that takeaway into eight points via a 65-yard touchdown reception from sophomore wide receiver Whop Philyor and a successful twopoint conversion.

LAW DAY at IUB! Thursday, Sept. 27

Hope grew. With 3:28 remaining in the game, junior Logan Justus made another short field goal to cut the Spartan lead to seven points. IU still had all three of its timeouts to use as the Hoosier defense returned to the field. This was an IU defense that had rendered the Michigan State running game nonexistent. Without starting running back LJ Scott, the Spartans averaged just 1.4 yards per carry entering this crucial possession. Two of the last three Michigan State drives had ended in turnovers and the last three drives averaged only five plays. If IU’s defense could continue its stellar second-half effort, the Hoosiers were set to get the ball back with a chance to tie the game and complete a 21-point turnaround. Hope reached its peak. On the first play of the drive, Spartan freshman wide receiver Jalen Nailor ran 75 yards to the end zone, untouched. A basic jet sweep running play, in an area of the game IU’s defense had dominated all night, completely undid the Hoosiers. Hope vanished. But to anyone who thought it wouldn’t, why did you?

Hoosiers score five goals against Evansville Friday By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

The No. 2 Hoosiers matched their season high with five goals on the road against Evansville on Friday night. Senior defender Andrew Gutman picked up his sixth goal of the season after sophomore midfielder Griffin Dorsey found him with a cross in the 13th minute. In his first start of the season, junior defender Jordan Kleyn fired a shot in the 29th minute that was saved, and senior midfielder Austin Panchot scored on the rebound to give IU the 2-0 lead. Then, just 18 seconds later, sophomore midfielder Justin Rennicks found the back of the net on a long run,

finishing past the keeper. With less than two minutes remaining in the first half, sophomore defender AJ Palazzolo scored his fourth goal of the season. Senior midfielder Jeremiah Gutjahr had a chip pass to senior defender Rece Buckmaster who then crossed to Palazzolo for the goal. After heading into halftime with a 4-0 lead, Dorsey scored the lone goal of the second half when Gutman found him with space in the middle and Dorsey put it in the back of the net. Sophomore goalkeeper Trey Muse picked up the shutout with five saves. IU had 16 shots and 12 of them were on goal. The Hoosiers will resume Big Ten play Tuesday night when Northwestern travels to Bill Armstrong Stadium.

Filmmaker El Said talks first feature film find the right balance between being a farmer and being a fisherman.

By Sarah Lloyd | @sxrxh99

Tamer El Said came to Bloomington 4 p.m. Friday at the IU Cinema for an onstage interview and a screening of “In the Last Days of the City.” “In the Last Days of the City” is El Said’s first feature film as director, according to the IU Cinema’s website. It is a fictional film about a filmmaker in Cairo, Egypt, who is trying to capture the city and everything changing around him. The feature was filmed in Egypt, Beirut, Baghdad and Berlin for two years before the eruption of a revolution in Egypt. The film is in Arabic but has English subtitles and is free but ticketed. The Indiana Daily Student spoke to El Said over the phone regarding his new film. Answers have been edited for clarity. Indiana Daily Student: What did you enjoy the most while directing this film? El Said: For me, filmmaking is a way of engaging with life. It’s a way to understand myself, and to work on myself to become a better person. I see filmmaking as a research project to find a way of engaging with the elements around me. In life, I have many questions and wonder about everything around me. Through making things I share these questions, and I even think of them differently. I try to de-

velop a bit of understanding to the mystery around them. Did you see yourself reflected in the main character, played by Khalid Abdalla? In what ways? You know, I’m always asked this question, and my answer is no. It’s not an autobiography, for different reasons. I know that it’s a film about a filmmaker trying to make his success, which is very similar to my situation. There is even a lot of similarities between us, but basically when I look at this film, I don’t see myself. I would say it’s not an autobiographical film, it’s a

personal film, and there is a difference. A critic friend of mine called it an “autoportrait,” like a self-portrait. Which is very different than making a photograph. There are many things that I can define myself as this kind of character who has a very heavy past that he cannot get over his shoulders and living in a very suffocating present and can’t see a future. On the other hand, what I also say will help is this urge, this need to document and film things around him because he sees that everything will collapse and he wants to keep a memory or a moment from

what he is living through. This feeling that something big is going to happen and this will change everything around me, and the urge to film everything before it collapses is also something that I share with him. But, in general, I see Khalid as an independent character. We share things but he is very different than me in reality. How was filming this fictional film different than filming documentaries? This film was made in the blurry area between fiction and documentary. What I say to my students when we

speak about it is: when you make fiction, you are like a farmer. You water your seeds and you take care of your plants while they’re growing every day. Your work is based on patience. You give time and you take care of your plants every day. The more you give, the more you will get; a beautiful tree, or a very delicious fruit. When you make a documentary, you are like a fisherman. You cast your net and you hope that the sea will give you some fish, but part of your job is to trust the sea. If you don’t trust the sea, the sea won’t give you anything. So, making the film was to

What message do you want audiences to receive from watching this film? I want them to reflect and think of everything around them and share that with me. I don’t think a film should convey a certain moral or political matters. A film is a way of reflecting, using the image and sound in a creative way to express a position toward the whole world. I feel like the film should be a very personal experience, from the perspective of making it and also the perspective of watching it. For me, if I make a film that is unifying the audience with one message, I consider this a failure. It’s horrible. I don’t want to unify the people. I always say I project the film to the audience, but also the audience is projecting their lives on the film. I look for a very mutual and eye-to-eye level relation with the audience. I’m not there to educate them, or tell them how to live their lives. I’m there to share my questions with them. I think some things are giving answers and some things are raising questions. For me, I wish to raise questions more than give answers. I wish that every member of the audience is having a different experience with the film. The film was shown at 7 p.m. Saturday, with El Said present during the Friday screening.

Five for Fighting finishes tour at Buskirk-Chumley By David Brinson

Five for Fighting and a string quartet performed at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater as football fans watched IU take on Michigan State in the bars down the street. “I’m not sure who planned a Five for Fighting concert the same night as an IU home game,” the band’s creator John Ondrasik said. “I’m just glad somebody showed up.” Ondrasik, better known as Five for Fighting, rose to fame in the early 2000s for a string of Billboard-topping hits. While Five for Fighting began as just his solo stage name, the inclusion of two violinists, a cellist and a viola player, have made the band an actual group of five. Ondrasik said the accompaniment of the string players have allowed him to pull different, more challenging songs out of his

catalog. “Along with some diversions into self-indulgence,” he said, laughing. Ondrasik provided many comedic moments throughout the night. He began by telling the crowd this was his second time in Bloomington this year, because of a college trip to IU with his son. The visit was in January and his son “decided he couldn’t handle the minus 20 degree windchill.” Later, he discussed the perils of being an aging musician who has to start hearing his songs on “oldie stations.” Another signature part of Five for Fighting’s performances are the contextual stories behind each song. Ondrasik, a natural born storyteller, discussed the sociopolitical climate of a post 9/11 United States which led to his break-out song, “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” becoming a grieving nation’s unofficial anthem.


John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting performs, tells life stories and interacts with the crowd during his performance Sept. 22 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Ondrasik alternated between a guitar and a piano and was accompanied by a string quartet as he performed fan favorites and popular singles.

Ondrasik and the string quartet played all his most famous sentimentally sweet, yet sad, songs, including, “Chances,” “The

Riddle” and “100 years.” The best parts of the night, however, were when they played things the crowd wasn’t expecting.

At one point, Ondrasik left the stage and let the quartet battle it out in “a musical war.” The last song they played of the night was a

drastically different version of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with Ondrasik singing at the piano. Three freshmen at Bloomington High School North said unanimously that the reimagined Queen song was the highlight of the concert. “I kind of dragged them along,” Ella Mankowski said, pointing at her two friends. “I saw them in Chicago when I was really young. I’ve been listening to them my whole life.” After the encore, Michael Elliot, a retired music teacher, was in awe of the performers. “Oh, what a fun show. You don’t get to see people like this very often,” Elliot said. “The music, the words, the stage presence. It’s impossible how talented these people are. It looks effortless, but oh boy, you have no idea how hard it really is.”

‘The Heiress:’ McFadden’s swan song By David Brinson


Tourists take photos of “Mona Lisa” at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

No, Mona Lisa doesn’t want to be in your selfie Brielle Saggese is a senior in journalism.

I wish she had said it loud enough for just one person to hear – my mother. My family travels a lot together, which I love. What I’m not so crazy about are my mother’s travel photos. She’ll first spot the crowd – wherever there’s a crowd, a Kodak moment must be near. Then she’ll come out with her favorite phrase, “OK now kids, get together...” Take a look at our photo albums, and you’ll see my same travel-photo-smile in front of Mount Rushmore, on top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and (after my mom’s visit next week) next to the Mona Lisa. But as bad as the MyMom-Told-Me-To-Stand-InFront-Of-This-Painting Photo, another museum photo might be even worse. This of course would be the PointAnd-Keep-Shooting. In this case, the photographer, often wielding a Canon point and shoot, will spot the Mona Lisa from across the exhibit. Instinctively, he

Monday morning classes are a little different here in Paris. Whereas I used to roll out of bed and sprint to Ballantine Hall, this Monday I swiped my metro pass and headed for the Louvre. It was our first art history class of the semester – the packed Italian Renaissance wing as our classroom, the stunning Jacques-Louis David as our subject matter. Expertly zigzagging around tourists, our professor made her way through the mosh pit as we struggled to chase after her. That is, until the incident. A classmate, spotting one Miss Mona Lisa, craned her iPhone overhead to snap a selfie. And my professor, spotting said selfie, gave us our first lesson: “That shouldn’t interest us.” I only wish she had said it louder for the iPhone cameras in the back. Actually,

takes a photo. But because poor Miss Mona Lisa is still too far away, he gets closer. This time it’s just the Canon and Mona. He takes a second shot – success! Next, because he cares so much about art, he’ll take a third shot of the painting’s description on the wall. Lastly, he’ll flip the Canon around for its grand finale – a good-old fashioned ’90s selfie. Sometimes I’ll see PointAnd-Keep-Shooting man and wonder if four months from now he’ll dig through his camera roll to find his one blurry photo of the Mona Lisa wall description. Sometimes I wonder about asking him what kind of hard drive storage he’d recommend. But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the most iconic type of museum photo of all.

“les insta-girls,” which I’m assuming doesn’t need translation. The term is plural because typically the photographers travel in packs, as if contractually bound to always be available for an Instagram opportunity. Here at the Louvre, they spotted my favorite Delacroix and took turns standing in front of it with one leg elongated in front of the others. If I were a good Samaritan, I would have advised them to choose a different painting. This one depicted a king, who after realizing he was going to be overthrown, set his horses on fire and murdered his various love interests. Maybe they were going for a darker aesthetic – I won’t judge. But despite my many qualms and even my professor’s strict lesson, what did I do after class that day?

For five seconds during the dress rehearsal for “The Heiress,” the lights came on, but nobody came out on stage. The five seconds where nothing happened is the first thing director Dale McFadden mentioned to his cast and crew. It might not seem like a lot, but to McFadden, those five seconds mean everything. “Dale is wonderful,” Glynnis Kunkel-Ruiz, McFadden’s lead actress, said. “Very detailed, very meticulous, in the best way possible.” After spending the past 33 years teaching and directing at IU, McFadden is planning to retire at the end of the school year. “The Heiress” will be the final play he directs at IU. Linda Pisano, the department chair, called it his “big swan song.” “The Heiress,” is a famous play, adapted from the Henry James novel, “Washington Square.” While they have different names, both center on Catherine, the titular young woman with a considerable inheritance. Catherine is like most women from that time. She is seen only as valuable as men see her. She is told many times that no man could love her without her money, to the point she almost begins to believe it. Toward the end, she begins to see the value in herself that no one else would give her. “I can do anything, my dearest,” Catherine says, defiantly. Catherine is brought to life by Kunkel-Ruiz, a second year MFA actor. Starring alongside her as the courting Morris is Felix Merback, a junior theGemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is an 8 — Friends come and go with the community and group projects.

ater and drama major. He floats on-stage and is laced with a nuance and a depth. And just as almost all the cast members seemed to do, Merback attributed his performance to his director. “He has such a vast understanding of the play, and he really helped us get into that world,” Merback said. “I am intensely, intensely sad he’s leaving. He is one of the great directors this school has ever seen.” McFadden recalls when he first came to IU in 1985, what he calls “his young and skinny days.” During the past 30 years, he’s been a part of a countless plays. Compared to students thirty years ago, McFadden said somethings have changed, but others haven’t. “So many of them are eager and willing to be as good as they can be,” McFadden said. “Lots has changed, but that hasn’t.” While his students seem to be upset about his retirement, McFadden seems at peace with it. He said he’s lucky because he’s never walked into work and didn’t want to be there. McFadden said he’s had a fulfilling time at IU, and he feels now is the right time to move on. “Well, my joke is that they say in retirement you’re supposed to do everything you wanted to do, but couldn’t,” McFadden said. “Well, I’ve already done everything.” During one of his final IU dress rehearsals, McFadden sat in the crowd taking notes with a pen and a flashlight. By the end of the play, he was sitting on the edge of his seat, looking up at his students. Right now, he enjoys the five seconds of being an IU director while he still can.
