Little 500 provokes extra police measures By Caroline Anders | @clineands

Historic Little 500 crime numbers Over the last five years of Little 500 weeks, the IU Police Department responded to an average of 131 calls per week.

IU can’t come back versus Cardinals By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

The nonconference struggles continued for IU softball with Louisville in town Wednesday night. After the Cardinals took a 4-0 lead through four innings, IU came back to make it a 4-3 game. But Louisville flexed its muscles in the top of the seventh to take a 11-3 advantage. Despite the fight from IU at the end to come back into the game, the lead was too much to overcome, and Louisville won 11-7. “What I was disappointed with was that we got outplayed in all facets of the game today, from being outhit, on the mound and had five errors,” IU Coach Shonda Stanton said. “I felt like we didn’t compete and have the right mindset tonight. We had the opportunity to make some plays and didn’t make them.” Neither team could find an offensive groove in the first two innings as Louisville kept IU in

check. But the Cardinals scored the first run of the game in the top of the third after knocking a long basesloaded RBI to left field.

In the bottom of the third, IU had a great chance to get back into the game after Louisville walked two of the first three batters. But a groundout from senior outfielder Rebecca Blitz and strikeout from sophomore outfielder Gabbi Jenkins ended the scoring opportunity. The following inning saw both teams do the same thing, but

Louisville capitalized in scoring position. The Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs before a wild pitch and single to right field plated three more runs to make it a 4-0 advantage. IU had a chance to get back into the game with two on in the bottom of the fourth, but backto-back pop-ups left the Hoosiers scoreless. “I was pleased going down 4-0 because we know as of late we’ve been good defensively and put up a lot of runs in the fifth through seventh inning,” Stanton said. After a walk from senior infielder Taylor Uden, Blitz singled to left field in the bottom of the fifth to give the Hoosiers their first hit of the day. The single also was Blitz’s 223rd hit in her career, which moved her to third all-time in IU history. A passed ball then moved both IU runners into scoring position. The Hoosiers almost had their first run of the day after a Jenkins single, but the runner was tagged out at

home despite it looking like the Louisville catcher was blocking the base path, which is illegal. Freshman catcher Maddie Westmoreland got the Hoosiers on the board with a single up the middle to plate two runs. Louisville threatened with another basesloaded situation in the top of the sixth, but IU got out of the jam unscathed. The Hoosiers had a chance to take their first lead of the day in the bottom of the sixth but came up short. After Louisville walked back-toback batters, junior infielder Sarah Galovich laid down a sacrifice bunt to put both runners in scoring position. Sophomore designated hitter Bella Norton followed that up with a perfect bunt of her own to bring a run in for the Hoosiers. However, a pop up and strikeout halted the IU momentum as SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 6

An average of 69, or 53 percent, of those calls came in over the weekend of the race. In comparison, IUPD received 28 calls last weekend. Of the weekend calls, an average of 37 percent were in relation to alcohol offenses. Each weekend of the last five Little 500 races, IUPD received at least one call about a sex crime. Three rapes were reported to the Bloomington Police Department over last year’s Little 500 weekend. In 2017, BPD reported 42 arrests over Little 500 weekend. Indiana State Police reported 114. Excise police reported arresting or citing 151. Murder during Little 500 IU student Hannah Wilson, a senior at the time, went missing during Little 500 weekend in 2015. She was later found bludgeoned to death. Wilson was 22 at the time of her death. Daniel Messel was convicted of her murder. The Bloomington man was sentenced to 80 years in prison for the Wilson case and was charged in relation to an alleged 2012 rape of a different IU student in fall 2016. Don’t fear police, IUPD says IUPD Capt. Craig Munroe said students should not hesitate to call IUPD if they’re at a party and someone is causing problems. He said it’s better to call than to wait for police to show up later. He also encouraged students to familiarize themselves with Indiana’s Lifeline Law and always be respectful toward police. “We're out there trying to protect you,” he said. “What it’s really all about is taking care of each other.” Plan to make this weekend a safe one Little 500 weekend was not heavily SEE HISTORY, PAGE 6

Punk singer Paul Mahern to teach punk history class By Emily Abshire | @emily_abs

Paul Mahern was the only punk rocker in his 5,000-student Indianapolis high school in the late 1970s. He wore a leather jacket and his hair spiked, just like one of his top influences, Sid Vicious, singer and bassist of the Sex Pistols. Now he has long, flowing white hair and still fronts the punk band he joined in high school, Zero Boys. Mahern will bring his expertise and professional experience in punk to IU students in a new class for fall 2018. He will teach MUS-Z 320: History of Punk Rock, which starts at the birth of garage rock in the '60s and makes its way to 2018. “In this class we will investigate what happens when generations of young people choose the electric guitar as a weapon against boredom and a rigged system,” Mahern wrote in the class syllabus. Mahern said he's been asked several times to write concise definitions of punk and the class, but he said it will take a few years of teaching the course before he can

decide how to whittle it down. He said punk is most centrally about honest self-expression and truthful communication. “Get a guitar and express yourself," he said. "Expressing yourself and telling your truth, scream it with an electric guitar, that’s punk. If what you’re saying is real to you, that’s punk.” This class will add to the music history courses Jacobs School of Music offers in the Music in General Studies program, which includes MUS-Z 201-203: History of Rock ’n’ Roll Music I-III, MUSZ 200: History of the Blues, MUSZ 393: History of Jazz and artist, genre and era-specific classes. Mahern has been teaching MSCH-P 353: Audio Production in the Media School for nine years while also working 40 hours a week in his Bloomington studio. He stills works with Indiana and local bands, including John Mellencamp. The Indianapolis Star put Mahern at No. 15 in the top 25 Indiana musicians of all time. Mahern hadn’t considered teaching a punk class until he was approached by current music professors Glenn Gass and Andy

Hollinden, who wanted to add more courses to the Music in General Studies program. Mahern started piecing together playlists, which would eventually constitute each class. As of now, the class begins with the Trashmen, Lesley Gore, 13th

Floor Elevators and the Velvet Underground, among others. “As soon as you start having a discussion with your peers, my punk rock peers, they’re immediately, they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, well, what was the first punk rock song?’, which I think is a boring

conversation,” he said. Once he figured out where to start, he continued breaking down the playlists through time and location. “It’s like a puzzle,” he said. “You make a playlist, and you kind of develop that one section, and then you realize, ‘Oh no, I need that song from that one playlist in this playlist.'" The class covers proto-punk in Detroit and Europe, then punk on the East Coast, before settling on a full day for the Ramones between 1976 and 1980. Then the course expands on the East Coast before bouncing to British punk and a full day of the Sex Pistols. The Sex Pistols are the epicenter of punk, Mahern said. Everything before was moving toward that and everything after was a reflection. The rest of the class includes new wave, post-punk, no wave, hardcore and pop punk, with focuses on the Clash, Nirvana, Green Day and the women of punk. “In today’s world, some people SEE PUNK, PAGE 6

1-year-old killed, 2 Indianapolis men charged By Sarah Verschoor | @SarahVerschoor


Alex Tanford, president of the Bloomington Faculty Council, holds a framed photo of an asterisk he calls the Asterisk of Reality. The BFC met for the last time this semester Tuesday, April 17, in Presidents Hall.

BFC approves lecturer title By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

The Bloomington Faculty Council approved a proposal to name the third lecturer rank Teaching Professor in a vote of 32 to 20 at its Tuesday meeting. In the BFC’s last meeting of the semester, members continued to debate what to name the third lecturer rank as well as proposed amendments to BFC’s constitution. The BFC did not make it through its entire agenda, with three proposals not being voted on. Proposal to name the third rank Teaching Professor Discussion on the title of the third lecturer rank included a campus survey from all schools, detailing the break down of support and opposition to various proposed titles for the third rank. The survey included a total of 806 responses. Outside of the BFC, tenure track faculty gave the most support to the title Se-

nior Lecturer with Distinction. Non-tenure-track faculty gave the most support to Teaching Professor. Rebecca Spang, a past president of the BFC, said she’d like to leave her last meeting on a positive note. However, she said she could not support the proposal. “Having a group of people called Teaching Professors suggests that the other professors don’t teach,” Spang said. More proposals were made to change the name, all of which ultimately failed. Finally, a vote was made to close debate on the subject in order to force the vote. “We have done this for weeks,” Provost Lauren Robel said. “Can I beg you to just let us vote on the proposal from the committee and get that done one way or the other so that we can come to some conclusion.” With the proposal approved in a roll-call vote, the recommendation to name the third lecturer rank Teaching Professor will go to the University Faculty Council to

be approved. Amendments The BFC approved only four of the seven proposals on the agenda due to time. Robel asked if council members were interested in going over time to finish the business, but going beyond the scheduled length of the meeting takes a unanimous vote of the BFC, and grumbles of disapproval from the room shot the vote down. Proposals from the Non-Tenure-Track Task Force focused on increasing the representation of non-tenure-track faculty on the BFC. Nick Williams, co-chair of the task force, said he acknowledged a few matters were beyond the scope of the proposals such as the overall number of non-tenure track faculty on campus and percentage of credit hours taught by tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty. “It’s perfectly possible to have that concern and simultaneously want to expand

the franchise for the nontenure-track faculty who are currently on campus,” Williams said. All proposals to amend the BFC’s constitution that went up for a vote were approved. Other business Moira Marsh, a University Librarian, will be the next president of the BFC, taking over for President Alex Tanford. In the tradition of the BFC, Tanford ceded the symbolic Tiara of Power to Marsh. “It never fit me,” Tanford said. “Maybe it will fit Moira.” However, Tanford added to the regalia a framed picture of an asterisk he found on Google Images, dubbing it the Asterisk of Reality. Tanford said it serves as an asterisk to the tiara to remind the president-elect that as faculty president, everything will take longer than imagined and you will get less done than expected.

IU students help autistic young adults By Zoe Spilker | @zoespilker

Lauren Buchanan, 19, aspires to be an applied behavior analysis therapist. Her learning differences make it more difficult for her to acquire the social and life skills her peers without autism often take for granted. After she graduated high school, she became a student at the College Internship Program in Bloomington. CIP provides her with extra academic support, basic life skills coaching and an IU student mentor to prepare her for her ultimate goal: independence. “I get more one-on-one here than I would get in college,” Buchanan said. “I get my stuff done on time, and I’m really ahead on things. My mentor pushed me to get out into the community.” She meets with her mentor one morning a week to grab a bite to eat. They talk about things like roommate problems and school frustrations, and they learn from each other’s experiences. The mentors are there for the students to vent to, so the students can relate to a peer outside the box of a diagnosis. In the next 10 years, an estimated 500,000 students with autism will graduate from high school, but the unemployment rate for people with autism is just over 75 percent, according to Autism Services, Inc. April is Autism Awareness Month, which represents a nationwide effort to promote inclusion of people with autism. CIP works to show how people with learning differences can experience success in the workplace. “A lot of the things are things we take for granted in our everyday life,” CIP social skills coordinator Jake Steinmetz said. “Things we learned when we were younger. We’re just taking

that and giving them a little extra support and opportunities to learn with peers. The social skills piece is really in every part of our life, and we take for granted sometimes we just know these things. But we all have areas that we’re weak in.”

“The first time my mentee said that they wanted to hang out with me, that was really huge. I know a couple other of the mentors have experienced the same thing, and seeing the reciprocal interest is always rewarding. ” Kerrigan Smith, junior

CIP was established in 1984 and has five locations nationwide that connect high-functioning autistic students and students with other learning differences

to academic, career and life skill support. CIP students get on-thejob training, career coaching, mock interviews and resume preparations, as well as information on life skills like banking, budgeting, goal developing and skills to be successful in an apartment. IU psychology students can apply to be mentors through a clinical psychology class. They get assigned one or two CIP students to work with for six to eight hours throughout the week. This semester, seven mentors take students out into the community to shop or go out to eat, as well as attend skills courses with them. “The mentors from IU are really invaluable to what we do here because it allows us to have peers that we’re working with,” Steinmetz said. “It’s easier to confide in a peer than it is an adult.” “And it’s much easier to accept feedback from a peer because you feel like

it’s legitimate,” admissions coordinator Ashley Sullivan said. “When it’s your parent, or some washed-up older person, you’re like, ‘But you don’t really know what it’s like to be somebody my age.’” The program also gives psychology students handson experience with people with autism as well, something they can’t get in a lecture hall. Kerrigan Smith, a junior psychology major, has been working at CIP since January. She said she appreciates the program giving the students and mentors looks into each other’s lives and the way each other think. “The first time my mentee said that they wanted to hang out with me, that was really huge,” Smith said. “I know a couple other of the mentors have experienced the same thing, and seeing the reciprocal interest is always rewarding. ‘Oh, I’m actually doing something right.’”

Two men in Indianapolis confessed to a driveby shooting that ended in the death of a sleeping toddler, according to court documents. Prosecutors officially charged Darrin Banks and Brian Palmer on Tuesday morning with murder and battery with a deadly weapon. One-year-old Malaysia Robson was killed in the early hours of March 29, police said, after the two men sprayed the home with bullets while following a dispute that started on social media. “Both Mr. Banks and Mr. Palmer admitted to firing .223 caliber rounds at the residence … and knew it to be occupied by several people,” wrote Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department detective Jeremy Ingram in a probable cause affidavit. According to Ingram’s affidavit, both admitted to the drive-by shooting at the one story house in the 3500 block of North Wittfield Street in east Indianapolis.

“We are confronted here with the worst form of such gun violence, an innocent child was robbed of her dreams and a city was robbed of its future.” Joe Hogsett, Indianapolis mayor

City leaders and activists were outraged by the toddler’s shooting, the latest in a series of gun deaths that have plagued Indianapolis in recent years. “We are confronted here with the worst form of such gun violence,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said in a press conference. “An innocent child was robbed of her dreams and a city was robbed of its future.” “She was only 1 year old,” Malaysia’s grandmother Robin Robson said between sobs at a rain-soaked prayer vigil. “She died a senseless death.” Investigators found 19 spent shell casings at the scene. When officers arrived, Malaysia was taken to Riley Hospital for Children. About a half an hour later, officers were informed she had died. A single bullet entered the toddler’s abdomen and struck her liver, stomach, diaphragm, left ventricle, left lung and heart. Ingram attended the toddler’s autopsy. The feud that led to the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute that started on social media, court documents said. Then, it escalated to a large fight at Carriage House East, an apartment complex. Court documents say Banks and PalmerwereupsetwhenBanks’

pregnant sister was injured in the fighting. The shooting took place just before 2 a.m. Thursday, March 29, when a car, reportedly driven by an unidentified woman, stopped in front of the house where Malaysia was sleeping. According to the affidavit, Banks and Palmer got out of the car and opened fire on the white one-story house. Police called for the shooters to turn themselves in, but it was a tip from a source, unnamed in the affidavit, that led detectives to Banks and Palmer. Members of the IMPD SWAT team, homicide unit, robbery coordination unit and other units began placing the suspects under surveillance. Police reported that Banks and Palmer both drove 1989 Chevy Caprices, and they followed them. The officers saw the two suspects together April 10 in Palmer’s car. When Palmer ran a stop sign, police pulled him over. Banks and Palmer were taken to the homicide office and the car was towed. Officers searched both men’s vehicles and found two AR-style rifles and ammunition from Palmer’s car. Angry residents held up signs protesting the gun violence at the vigil on the evening following the shooting. One of the signs declared “Enough is enough,” echoing the same motto chanted by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who survived February’s massacre at the Parkland, Florida, school and have been advocating for gun control ever since. Rev. Charles Ellis, a community organizer in Indianapolis, said school shootings like the one in Parkland drew a great deal of attention. But he pointed out more kids, like Malaysia, are killed everyday in city streets. “While suffering is suffering if you just go by pure numbers, we lose even more on the street,” he told the Indiana Daily Student. The Saturday following the shooting, the Ten Point Coalition, an anti-violence group in Indianapolis, organized a march in Malaysia’s honor. There were more than 100 people. “I’m angry, I’m tired of the killing,” one person’s sign read. The coalition returned to the home of the shooting this April 11 to help reinstall the windows shattered by the bullets. Since the shooting, they had been boarded. “We are grateful today,” Leroy Smith of the Ten Point Coalition said, “That these young men have been brought to justice. Editor’s note: This story was reported through videos of a press conference and interviews as well as visiting the home where the shooting took place and interviews with activists.

Campus celebrates third worldwide IU Day By Emily Isaacman | @emilyisaacman

Pop music blared as students wearing #IUDay T-shirts walked down the Indiana Memorial Union stairs facing Seventh Street on Wednesday, which were adorned with ballons and red and white banners reading “IU Day.” Red and white stairs inside said “#IUDay” and “Show your IU spirit.” IU students, staff and alumni all over the world shared their IU pride Wednesday for the third annual IU Day. “It’s a great reminder of how much this community means to us,” said Tory Blackwell, president of the IU Student Foundation. Brittany Bauer, manager of strategic partnerships for the IU Foundation, said the day highlights both fundraising and engagement to create an inclusive, celebratory atmosphere. After studying other schools with days focused solely on fundraising, such as the University of Michigan’s Giving Blueday and the Purdue Day of Giving, Bauer said IUF decided the engagement component was critical for IU’s celebration. People could participate in online fundraising, social media challenges, alumni events and on-campus activities. “Make the day what you want it to be,” Bauer said. “It’s a choose-your-own-adventurestyle day.” Several tents and swag stations were set up around campus as part of a student scavenger hunt from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Blackwell said the hunt was a good way for students to interact with parts of campus their class schedule might not include and learn about student organizations and departments with which they might not be familiar. Sophomore Neev Kadakia picked up his clue sheet from the IUSF table at the Woodburn clock tower, where students collected swag and pinned their hometowns onto state and world maps. Kadakia said he has grown to love the IU-Bloomington campus through his two years here. “You want to show your appreciation for something you love,” Kadakia said. Knowing the scavenger hunt was coming, Kadakia accessed the clues online and

proactively completed the answers to maximize his limited break between classes. At each of the 15 stations, students participated in an activity to earn a stamp for their clue sheets. When finished, they exchanged their papers for prizes based on the number of stamps they had collected. Three stamps won an IU Day lanyard, five amounted to an IU Day popsocket, seven secured an IU Day tank top and 10 meant swag plus an added entrance in a grand prize drawing to win a $250 Amazon gift card and a behind-the-scenes tour of the IU Athletics facilities. At the WFIU scavenger hunt station near the Radio and Television Building, students took pictures with IU-themed props at a photo booth and recorded their favorite IU memories. Laura Baich, marketing director for WFIU, said the recordings might be used for an IU-themed episode of “Profiles,” a weekly interview program, or for programming during the bicentennial. Baich said WFIU participated in the scavenger hunt to increase awareness about public radio and public television, and to thank IU. “We love IU,” Baich said.

She wore red and white sneakers and a red IU sweatshirt. Bauer said many schools and buildings had independent IU celebrations with food and school-branded swag. Spontaneous bus trivia and an unannounced performance by the cast of “West Side Story” at 2:15 p.m. outside Hodge Hall added to the festive environment. While no fundraising events took place on campus, several campaigns encouraged giving online. A crowdfunding website allowed donors to choose which schools or programs they specifically wanted to support, or they could donate to the IU Day general fund. Challenge funds financed $1 for student scholarships per IU Day snapchat filter used between 1 and 4 p.m. Social media users could compete in challenges called “IU is Everywhere,” “Best-Dressed Pet” and “Best-Dressed Future Alum.” The winners will earn $2,000 toward an IU cause of their choice. IUF also encouraged the use of #IUDay on social media. Last year, the hashtag was used as a trending item on Twitter, with 12,588 uses.


Top The Indiana Memorial Union is decorated with banners and balloons for IU Day on Wednesday. The third annual IU Day gave students the opportunity to explore campus and win prizes. Bottom Students pin where they are from on a giant picture of the world at a booth in front of the Woodburn clocktower for IU Day. The other side showed a big picture of Indiana so students could pin their hometown.

In terms of fundraising, Bauer said this year IUF focused on participation rather than dollar amounts. IUF matched donations between $50 and $1,000 from first-time givers. Running totals online showed total gifts, rather than dollars. As of 9 p.m. Wednesday,

2,336 gifts had been made. An online interactive map pinpointed the IU Day celebrations happening all over the world, including numerous alumni chapter events. IUF posted videos and activities online to promote IU pride at any location.

While the IU Day campus and online presence was markedly different than normal, Bauer advised people to put the single day into perspective and continue giving and showing school pride all year long. “It doesn’t just stop at midnight,” Bauer said.

Police offer tips for having safe time during Little 500 By Caroline Anders | @clineands

Law enforcement around town is bracing for an increase in calls as the infamous party weekend kicks off. Protect IU released a “Party Playbook” to promote safety on and off campus as the spring party season begins. The playbook advises students to walk in groups, keep their phones charged, verify the vehicle they are getting into is from the ride-sharing service they used and to be honest with police. “Remember, police are here to keep you safe,” the guide reads. “Tickets are expensive, but police cannot

ignore violations of drinking and other laws designed to help keep people safe.” The guide also lists a few “Party Penalties,” such as carrying a fake ID, drinking underage, providing minors with alcohol and going to parties with drugs. Individuals who are not using drugs can still be charged with visiting a common nuisance if they are somewhere where illegal drugs are being used. Being host to a party with illegal drugs can lead to a felony charge of maintaining a common nuisance. The playbook also advises using IU’s safety escort service in situations that seem unsafe. The service is available

from 8 p.m. to 1:45 a.m. every day. Drivers are IU students who pick up individuals in white or silver minivans with a black IU trident on the side. The IU Police Department also planned its third annual “Cookies with Cops” event for Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. for students interesting in learning more about safety during Little 500. “Learn important facts about how to have fun without getting stuck picking up trash Sunday morning,” the event description reads. The Bloomington Police Department and pizza places around town printed 1,700 fliers about the Indiana Life-

line Law. The fliers will be distributed before and during Little 500 to promote the law, which can protect individuals who report crimes or call for medical help. The law offers protection to those who call for assistance from police, even if they’re drinking underage. There are a few stipulations to the protection offered by the Lifeline Law, so read about those before invoking it. BPD and IUPD are also increasing their presence on campus and around the city as Little 500 weekend approaches. “It’s Little Five, so we’re getting ready,” BPD Sgt. Robert Skelton said.


Students who have received a drinking violation ticket during the Little 500 weekend pick up trash as a part of the pretrial diversion program in 2016 at Bill Armstrong Stadium. Little 500 will take place this coming weekend with the women’s race at 4 p.m. Friday and the men’s race at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Let’s talk about Little 500 Get out of town for the weekend

Bars should discount during Little 500

Little 500 is as fun as you make it

Go sober this weekend

hen college students think of Little 500, most of them think about partying first and racing second. Despite the weekend being dedicated to the race aspect of the event, the weeklong drinking festival that comes before the races is what is remembered the most — that is, if you remember any of it. From house parties and day parties to the bars and tailgating before the races, many people will be finding a way to drink this weekend. Because of this, I think it would be great to see Bloomington take advantage of this phenomenon and find a way to give discounts to those who partake in Little 500 activities. For example, the bars on Kirkwood Avenue and the Courthouse Square will certainly profit off IU students, and their families or friends from out of town. Even if all bars were to give a small discount on drinks throughout the weekend, I believe they would see an increase in sales. Moreover, if cover during Little 500 weekend wasn’t so high, there wouldn’t be a mass influx of people at the bars where cover doesn’t exist. This would lead to people being spread out. Not only are the bars intimidating because of the mass gathering of people, but with most of the festivities happening between Thursday and Sunday — when drink prices are usually not discounted — students are reluctant to go to the bars and stick to parties instead. And while bars may not be the safest places during Little 500, they still offer some protection that house parties do not, such as knowing what you are drinking and having bouncers. Because of this, I think bars should lower drink prices and cover throughout Little 500.

ittle 500 is referred to as the greatest college weekend in America, and I wouldn’t have any problems with this description if it weren’t for the fact that it seems almost everyone on campus loses their minds. There are plenty of great things about Little 500. The riders’ dedication to their sport is impressive, the fans’ enthusiasm is exciting and the races raise a lot of money for student scholarships. But surrounding all of those wonderful things is an aura of crazy which I just can’t get behind. This is not to say I don’t like going out with friends during Little 500. I love a good house party as long as things don’t get out of hand. However, things getting out of hand seems to be the inevitable result of Little 500 festivities. Because of this, I can’t help but wish we’d all focus a little more on truly keeping up a culture of care than on pushing every possible limit. I can practically see the eyes that will roll at this, but hear me out. Plenty of students are uncomfortable with the atmosphere in Bloomington during race weekend, and with good reason. It’s hard to feel at ease when you’re surrounded by party culture in its most intense form. For all of our sakes, even those who aren’t bothered by the hysteria, I fully believe we could all enjoy ourselves more if we scaled back just a little bit and took better care of each other. Actually expecting college kids to commit to these limits probably sounds completely naive, and I’ll admit that it is very unlikely. It’s not impossible, though, and we would all be better off and able to enjoy the weekend. We don’t have to be crazy to have a crazy good time.

xcessive alcohol use kills approximately 88,000 people in the United States each year, and U.S. consumers spend roughly $249 billion per year. A recent study published in the journal The Lancet showed consuming more than one drink each day, or more than 100 grams of alcohol a week, increases your risk of death from fatal hypertensive disease, aortic aneurysm, heart failure and stroke. Consume more than 200 grams of alcohol per week and your life expectancy begins to drop significantly, potentially by more than a year. One scientist on the study said the health risks of consuming alcohol over the 100 gram limit was, for a 40-year-old, comparable to those of smoking. I support the Little 500 race as an important philanthropic event and I greatly appreciate the athleticism and camaraderie of the IU cycling community. Since the first race in 1951, the IU Student Foundation has given more than $2 million in scholarships to undergraduates. But I cannot support the culture of alcoholism the race weekend perpetuates. According to National Institutes of Health research, each year, around 696,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 report assault by another student who has been drinking, and around 97,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 report experiencing alcohol-related sexual assault or date rape. Alcohol industry groups have also been accused of obfuscating or downright denying the links between alcohol consumption — even in moderate amounts — and cancers such as breast and esophageal cancers. The lives of thousands of infants are also affected each year due to alcohol consumption during pregnancy. There are other ways to have fun and be social this weekend, IU. Don’t rely on alcohol to have a good time.


very year since 1951, it has been a tradition for thousands of people to gather around a track that is too small to watch bikers race. Some attendees do not know anyone in the race, but this tradition draws in thousands of viewers. Freshmen who know nothing of the history of the Little 500 race go to just get a taste of what it is like to be at IU. Students from other universities often come to experience the IU party scene and the race. Likewise, many students here simply use the entire week as an excuse to party. But I think we don’t need to succumb to the pressure of others just to attend a hot, crowded event which most people don’t watch. I think this weekend should be a getaway — an escape, if you will — from the mayhem that comes from this race. It may be an escape for safety from the higher levels of danger, which may come from the increased number of people drinking on campus. It may be an escape for peace of mind just before finals, or just be a way to escape the noise of Little 500. This escape could lead to a more productive dead week, especially because you wouldn’t have to suffer from a hangover Monday. Or this getaway may just be an escape to be with friends — just like Little 500 is supposed to be. You can pass time with the friends doing things that are just as much fun as this race seems to advertise. Little 500 weekend all in itself ought to be seen as a vacation weekend spent however you want it to be spent. No one ought to be pressured into the participation of the races themselves. Get out of here and enjoy yourselves.





This year’s Pulitzer Prize for public service was well-deserved Emma Getz is a sophomore in English and history.

The New York Times and the New Yorker recently won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for public service for their reports on sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood. These organizations deserve this award more than anyone else. The Pulitzer Prize is the highest honor in journalism and the New York Times and the New Yorker’s win this year is extremely well deserved.

The investigations on Weinstein sparked the #MeToo movement, where people stepped forward about their experiences with sexual assault in an unprecedented way. Over 100 people came forward to speak out against Weinstein. The New York Times’ team was led by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey while the New Yorker’s contributions were led by Ronan Farrow. The Pulitzer Prize Board said that these journalists received the awards “for explosive, impactful journalism that exposed wealthy

and powerful sexual predators including allegations against one of Hollywood’s most influential producers, bringing them to account for long-suppressed allegations of coercion, brutality and victim silencing, thus spurring a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse of women.” Kantor and Twohey first reported about Weinstein in the New York Times in October 2017, revealing he had been paying off sexual harassment accusers for decades. They followed up their investigation in December, joined by Susan Do-

minus, Jim Rutenberg and Steve Eder, with an examination of the people and systems that enabled Weinstein’s abuse. Journalists at the New York Times continued their pursuit in exposing the abuses of men in power, following up with investigations about Vice Media, comedian Louis C.K. and restaurateur Ken Friedman. Farrow’s first piece in the New Yorker, a 7,000 word investigation first disclosing Weinstein’s accusations, was published five days after the New York Times article. Farrow went on to reveal

additional assault allegations in subsequent articles, along with Weinstein’s use of private investigation firms. He also exposed money from Weinstein’s settlements came from his brother’s, Bob Weinstein’s, personal account. As the son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, Ronan Farrow has stated his family background made him understand abuse from an early age. “You see early in life with that kind of a family background the way in which the most powerful men in America wield power for good and for ill,” he said to

The Hollywood Reporter. These investigations led to thousands of people coming forward to talk about their experiences of sexual abuse, bringing down many powerful men whose actions had been covered up for years. The investigations sparked a change in the way sexual abuse is discussed and paved the way for a future in which powerful people may no longer get away with their terrible actions. Kantor, Twohey and Farrow deserve this honor for pioneering such an important moment in journalism and public service.

IU ready to begin postseason play By Stefan Krajisnik | @skrajisnik3


Rachel Brown of Kappa Alpha Theta rides in the 30th women’s Little 500 race. Theta won their seventh title this year.

Green flag set to drop By Michael Ramirez | @mich_rami

Anticipation is running high as riders finish their final preparations for the Little 500 race commences this weekend. The 2018 Spring Series saw senior Brooke Hannon of Melanzana break the Individual Time Trials record and Alpha Kappa Lambda qualify for the first time in its history. Now, all eyes are on Friday and Saturday when the women’s and men’s races take place, respectively. Senior Rachel Brown of Kappa Alpha Theta finished in first place in Miss N Out, but she said it doesn’t matter when the big race begins. “Nothing changes because of spring series,” Brown said. “We already know what we’re capable of regardless of the outcome in any individual event. It feels good to do well in those, but it is in no way what we’re focused on. Our eyes are only on the race.”

Kappa Alpha Theta returns as last year’s champion, where it pulled ahead of the rest of the field after a crash at the start of the 35th lap. Brown said even though emotions are running high, especially for the seniors, the team isn’t putting any pressure on themselves entering this year’s event. “I think it’s easy to feel like it’s the biggest thing you do, and it encompasses a lot,” Brown said. “In reality, I’m only going to be riding my bike for 20 minutes on Friday. That would be a generous estimate. Honestly, we just try to look at it as simple as possible, because you get out there and you do what you’ve done every day for years.” After finishing sixth in last year’s race, Melanzana impressed throughout this year’s Spring Series. Hannon broke the record for the fastest time in ITT history and finished with a time of 02:33.083. Hannon said the team’s performance throughout the spring only gives a

glimpse to what it is capable of for Friday’s race. She said she is confident in her ability to win close sprints after her ITT performance. “It just shows sprinter potential,” Hannon said. “So, if the race came down to a sprint, our team would be fairly confident in putting me on the bike. If there’s any kind of breakaway, like last year’s race, I have full confidence that I would be able to chase it down.” Although Black Key Bulls took home the Borg-Warner Trophy when it was all said and done in the men’s race last year, there are many other teams who are returning multiple riders. One team who is returning multiple riders is Bears Cycling, who placed No. 16 in qualifications. Senior rider Riley Figg said his team’s expectations are high, and he expects nothing short of a victory. “The expectation is to win,” Figg said. “Last year we placed sixth, and we’re turning four starters from

last year’s team. We’re on of the most experienced teams in field, so we’re shooting for nothing short of the trophy.” The weather has been gloomy and cold throughout each Spring Series event, including snow and high winds. This weekend is predicted to be different with partly cloudy skies and temperatures as high as 60 degrees. Riders are looking forward to race in ideal weather this time around, and it only adds to the anticipation. “It’s a little bit surreal every year to work for something for so long and then have the opportunity presented to you,” Brown said. “Our goal is always to win and that’s something we’re proud of maintaining yearin and year-out.” The 31st running of the women’s race is set to begin at 4 p.m. Friday at Bill Armstrong Stadium, while the 68th running of the men’s race will commence at 2 p.m. Saturday.




What happens when the breakthrough doesn’t occur?

Senior Xiwei Cai celebrates after winning her singles match against Ohio State 5-7, 6-3, 11-9. Cai took the only point for the Hoosiers during their 1-6 loss to OSU. IU will play Maryland and Rutgers on the road this weekend with Big Ten Tournament implications on the line.

IU looks to make Big Ten Tourney

Andrew Hussey is a senior in journalism.

In Saturday’s Cream and Crimson game, multiple times when IU punters punted inside John Mellencamp Pavilion, their punts just stuck in netting in the roof. This was an apt metaphor for where IU Coach Tom Allen and the Hoosiers are right now. For years, the trajectory of the IU program had been only upward, making back-toback bowl games before last season’s five-win campaign. Instead of building off previous success and breaking through, IU got stuck in the netting and didn’t continue the progress of the years prior. There were no victories over ranked teams, and after the national spotlight on the program for the Ohio State opener went away, it never returned. The Hoosiers were trapped by their own mantra of breakthrough. When it didn’t happen, what was supposed to come next? That’s the challenge Allen has to face this season. What he preached so much didn’t come to fruition, and where his program goes from here is critical to Allen’s success — or failure — at IU. His message was captivating, but when it came to actual wins and losses, it didn’t seem to make a difference. What is critical for Allen is to learn from what went wrong in his first season as head coach and adapt to a roster of players that are more and more his recruits This roster is more in his image of what he wants a team to be, and maybe

IU women’s golf has managed a top-10 finish at every regular season tournament this season. During Coach Clint Wallman’s 14-year tenure at IU, the Hoosiers had never accomplished this feat until this season. However, with Big Ten Championships this weekend, IU is hitting the reset button. “Our regular season is done, this is a three round season in itself,” Wallman said. “Hopefully it’ll be a good season for us.” The results of this year are in the past for IU as it will look to make a run at the conference title. IU will go into the tournament in Maineville, Ohio, with seven Big Ten titles. That ranks behind only Ohio State, which has 14. However, the Hoosiers have not won a championship since 1998. IU has only had three top-three finishes since that year. Wallman has hopes this year’s roster will bring better results. “They’re very talented,” Wallman said. “They’re in the process of figuring out how to improve and do the little things that take us from the top-third to the upper echelon. I’m very excited for this week.” Two of IU’s top three golfers this season have been freshmen Mary Parsons and Priscilla Schmid.

At last weekend’s Lady Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio, Parsons and Schmid struggled for the Hoosiers. Schmid finished in a tie for 61st while Parsons needed an impressive final round to crack the top-20. “You can count on them day in and day out,” Wallman said. “Occasionally they’re going to have a bad round.” Top-15 finishes for sophomore Elisa Pierre and junior Erin Harper helped propel IU to a sixth place finish while also showing the depth of the roster. The upperclassmen on the team know what it takes to compete in the Big Ten Championships. The key for the team this weekend will be to avoid having consecutive bad holes. It will be a matter of taking it one hole at a time. “You have to have a lot of discipline when it comes to not getting ahead of yourself,” Wallman said. “This team does a good job of identifying the situations. They’re smart in terms of how they approach the golf course and staying patient.” The course last weekend will also help IU as the courses are both Jack Nicklaus-designed. “That’s why we play Ohio State, it’s such a good prep for the Big Ten Conference,” Wallman said. “We’ve had a lot of practice on that style of golf course.” The three rounds will stretch over three days beginning at 8:30 a.m. Friday.

that will make a difference, but with so much up in the air heading into the summer before his second year as coach, it might not be enough. It’s easy to say IU will have another down season in 2018 because of the immense loss of talent and the multitude of question marks on both sides of the ball. The defense, which has been the foundation of the team the past two years, will lose important playmakers on all three levels. On offense, the quarterback position remains in flux with the arrival of graduate transfer Brandon Dawkins from Arizona. Sophomore Peyton Ramsey started in four games last season, but didn’t do enough to earn the permanent starting nod. Freshmen Nick Tronti and Michael Penix Jr. offer promise, but are still learning the system and how to play quarterback in the Big

Ten Conference. No one is a slam-dunk answer at quarterback, unless one of them takes a major leap forward. The receiving core has solid contributors, but both junior wide receivers Nick Westbrook and Donovan Hale are returning from seasonending injuries. The running back and offensive line position groups have talent, but they need to elevate their play. This leaves IU’s offense still searching for answers, just like the Hoosiers were for most of last season. It appears the IU offense of the earlier part of the decade is long gone and with Allen not an offensive coach, these problems lay at the hands of offensive coordinator Mike DeBord to fix. After a disappointing showing from the offense in 2017, this unit will have to improve rapidly with the defense not being able

to be as good as it was. For nearly every game, the defense carried the team, but with so many pieces departing, they will not be able to keep the game within reach next season. It’s up to the offense to get unstuck and regain its form of previous years. The netting where the punters’ footballs got trapped in IU’s practice facility hangs from the ceiling. Have the Hoosiers hit their ceiling as a program? Or, can Allen grow from last year’s disappointing season and overcome the attrition of some of the best defensive talent in decades? Unlike last season, there’s no hype surrounding this year’s team and it’s up to Allen and this team to build back the excitement because right now, it feels like the program is stuck in neutral.

IU will play its final two regular season matches on the road against Maryland and Rutgers on Friday and Sunday. The Hoosiers are tied with the Terrapins for ninth place in the Big Ten standings with a 3-6 record in conference play. Rutgers, on the other hand, is in last place with an 0-9 conference record. The top-10 teams in the standings at the conclusion of the regular season will compete in the conference tournament. Iowa and Penn State own a 2-7 conference record, trailing IU by one game. IU defeated Penn State in the Hoosiers’ final home match of the season, which proved to be an important win for IU in terms of the conference standings. It gave the Hoosiers an edge in qualifying for the conference tournament. Junior Natalie Whalen said IU put a lot of pressure on the Penn State match because the team knew it was a deciding factor for a top10 position in the standings. Whalen said these next two matches will be a matter of trying to secure the lowest seed possible for IU in the Big Ten Tournament. “We definitely need to win one of the two,” Whalen said. “Our intentions have always been to win, but now that the tournament is so close, winning becomes more urgent. The matches are three hours of pure focus

on doing our job. We need as little distraction as possible and focus on the task at hand — winning the match.” IU Coach Ramiro Azcui said his team is locked in right now, and he liked the vibe he’s gotten from his players since the Penn State victory. IU is responding to the challenge of qualifying for the tournament, and Azcui said his team knows the importance of the next two matches and are focused on getting wins. IU and Maryland currently share ninth place in the standings, and Azcui said the match will be tough because both teams are fighting for the same thing — a win for better seeding. IU has played most of its matches indoors this spring due to cold weather, but the match at Maryland is expected to be played outside. Azcui said he is excited because he thinks his team plays slightly better outdoors. After Maryland on Friday, IU plays Rutgers in its regular season finale Sunday. Rutgers is the worst team in the conference and is still seeking its first conference win. It’s exactly why Azcui said IU cannot relax in its match against the Scarlet Knights. “We are playing them on their senior weekend,” Azcui said. “They know it’s their final match for their seniors, and Rutgers wants nothing more than to send its seniors out the right way. I think IU is the stronger team, but I expect high intensity from Rutgers, and it will try to get its first conference win on senior day.”

understand that punk is like Hot Topic and Green Day, and you can’t take that away from them,” he said. “Punk has become commercialized, but the underground, basement-dwelling punk rock has continued through all of the commercialization.” Bloomington in particular has always had and always will have a strong underground music scene, Mahern said. Indianapolis, though, was not a place where punk thrived as Mahern was growing up. It took him two buses and an hour each way to get to the two record stores in Indianapolis where he would ask the staff for their punk recommendations. “I’d get home with these records, and they were just like transmissions to another world,” he said. “It really solidified my feeling that recorded music is such a great, beautiful, direct form of communication.” Mahern talked at length, with stories and examples, about communication and truthful self-expression as the essence of punk. “Ultimately what I want people to take away from this class is the idea that they can invent themselves in any way, shape possible they want to,” he said. “You can constantly be reinventing yourself and expressing yourself in a real way.” The class is set to meet 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is one group of students Mahern particularly wants to take his class, he said. “I really want Kelley business school students to take this class,” he said. “This is one of my primary focuses because I just think that doit-yourself ethic of punk rock — starting a fanzine, starting the label, not waiting for some angel investor to come along and help you start your business — I think all of that could be extremely valuable to young business people. And they’ll learn about the magic of music.”

Louisville maintained the 4-3 lead. Everything that could’ve gone wrong did for IU in the top of the seventh. Louisville got hit after hit and took advantage of multiple IU errors. IU did string together multiple runs in the bottom of the seventh, but the Cardinals held on to win, 11-7. “I think, obviously, it was a disappointment for us because you never want to come out on your field and lose like that,” Westmoreland said. IU was close to a comeback attempt, but the seventh inning proved to be too much. Next up, the Hoosiers will welcome in Penn State with hopes to sweep another Big Ten opponent. “Our goals are still in front of us," Stanton said. "It’s about having the right BOBBY GODDIN | IDS mindset and learning from Sophomore catcher Bella Norton bunts the ball against Louisville on Wednesday evening at Andy Mohr Field. Norton had four RBIs in IU’s 11-7 this." loss to Louisville.


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 planned for or policed until 1991, BPD Capt. Steve Kellams said. Riots and arrests that year got out of control, he said. Since then, agencies statewide coordinate to prevent something like that happening again. “We’ve gotten Little Five down to a science,” Kellams said. Agencies involved in the weekend include BPD, IUPD, the Indiana State Police, the Indiana State Excise Police, the Monroe County Sheriff 's Office, the Monroe County Correctional Center, the Bloomington Hospital Ambulance Service, the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office and the Department of Natural Resources. Many of these groups met Monday to discuss procedures for this year’s upcoming Little 500. A remote booking location for non-violent offenders, generally those ticketed for alcohol-related


offenses, will be set up at BPD’s headquarters on Third Street. This will allow fewer trips to and from the jail throughout the weekend. Police will be stationed on foot in what Kellams called Bloomington’s usual problem areas during Little

500 weekend — the spaces around the Bill Armstrong stadium and the bar district. BPD will also have an emergency management room where representatives from various state agencies are invited to meet and ensure everyone is on the

same page throughout the weekend. Munroe said IUPD will monitor all activities registered on campus all week. Over the weekend, there will be two officers in each IUPD and BPD patrol car, and police from other

campuses will come to Bloomington to help staff shifts. Both BPD and IUPD will have all hands on deck, according to the captains. Officers are not allowed to take time off during Little 500 weekend.

nd weekSNeEW S.COM



How long would you survive in a horror movie?

Your late aunt leaves you her old doll, Ethel, in her will. What do you do when it comes in the mail?

Grab a bat and cautiously approach the attic to investigate.

You hear a child crying from your attic at night.

You hear a scream and follow a trail of blood downstairs. There’s a scratching behind you. When you turn, you jump at the sight of Ethel. You’re a dead man, my friend.

Burn her, I say!

Ethel starts speaking ancient tongues in a deep, unsettling voice.

Ethel reappears at your doorstep the next morning. Burn the demon spawn — again!

Freak out, hide under your covers and call the police. There’s no way you’re messing with this demon doll on your own.

Sell it to the decrepit, old shopkeeper in that shady antique store downtown.

Burn the demon spawn!

Stow it away in an old chest in the attic.

Desperately pray to any and all gods you can conjure up.

That never works. It’s back. Stop burning it for God’s sake.

Ethel lures you into the basement with pizza and burns you in the incinerator. Sucks to suck.

You trip. When you look up, the shopkeeper is holding an axe above your head while muttering in Latin. You have died.

Stuff her in your dresser. You swear you saw her tilt her head and smile as you closed the drawer.

You need some sort of comfort to bring up your morale. What do you do?

Ethel isn’t where you left her, and your face is scratched out of all the photos in your house.

Look for her in the basement! You hear the basement door close behind you. Ethel is speaking in Latin, and your body moves beyond your control. You’ve survived but are now possessed. Good luck with that.

Scream as the priest’s head twists 360 degrees.

Now the priest starts speaking in tongues and turns to you with an evil smile. You’re done, dude.

Call the priest you keep on speed dial in case of demon possession. The priest arrives and begins an exorcism, but Ethel’s demonic power takes over.

Search every inch of the attic.

You find an old engraved locket with a name written on it.

As the priest’s head swivels around, you grab his Bible, flip to a random page and start reading out loud.

Ethel writhes in pain. She flies up into the air, screams and drops back down to the floor with a thud. You take her to the woods and bury her, dutifully leaving the story open to a sequel. Congratulation on surviving — for now.

Find Ethel and say her true name out loud.

Cry. Just cry.

Put on your grandma’s locket and remember her fondly.

Put it on.

The locket starts tightening and burning your neck. You have died.

Run the hell out of there.

Pull out your handy ouija board to connect with your late grandmother. Your hands move erratically across the board. This is not your grandmother. Suddenly, your hands stop moving and you fly into the air. Godspeed, dear secondary character.


Ghosts that haunt IU’s campus By Christine Fernando

The Ghosts of Read Residence Hall In his book, “Haunted Indiana: Ghosts and Strange Phenomena of the Hoosier State,” James A. Willis claims IU is “said to be practically crawling with ghosts,” but Read may take the cake for the most supposed ghostly happenings. The first ghost is said to be a young girl with long black hair who was stabbed to death by her boyfriend, a pre-medical student who lived on the third floor of Read. The couple argued in his room before he grabbed a scalpel from his medical bag and stabbed her to death, according to the book. The boyfriend then tried to hide the body, blood-stained yellow dress and all, in Read’s basement, but was arrested soon after. Even though the girl’s body was buried, students have claimed to see a girl in a blood-stained yellow dress wandering the hallways of Read. Willis also tells the story of Paula, who was a resident assistant on the sixth floor of Read. The December before she was expected to graduate, Paula heard her grades had dropped. According to legend, she then threw herself down the stairwell from the sixth floor, breaking her neck. Legend has it around

Several sorority members also told the IDS in a story published Oct. 28, 1911, that they had seen the Woman in Black at a “Hallowe’en” party. They said the woman arrived then disappeared without a trace. The IDS wrote that the woman, who they referred to as a restless spirit, “inspired fear in the hearts of strong men as she glided behind trees and buildings” at the party.


Read Residence Hall is home to more than one ghost story. One involves a student stabbing his girlfriend to death and burying her body in the basement of the building, and the other is about a resident assistant suicide.

midnight every Dec. 12, students can hear a young girl’s scream by the stairwell. The Woman in Black The Indiana Daily Student published a series of stories recounting sightings of “The Woman in Black” in October 1911.

A story published by the IDS on Oct. 12, 1911, reported on a student who saw a woman dressed in all black at the corner of East Fourth Street and Indiana Avenue. She was said to have had a cane and was angry while muttering under her breath. When students approached her, she disappeared.

The same night, a man reported a black figure on the steps of Alpha Hall. He told the IDS he believed the person was a burglar. One student reported stones falling at his feet while he walked on Henderson Street, but he said he could not figure out where they were coming from.

The McNutt Hatchet Man After students were alerted of several sexual assault reports, one girl wanted to go outside, according to “Indiana Folklore: A Reader,” edited by Linda Degh. Before leaving her roommate and dorm room, the girl told her roommate to stay inside, lock the door and wait for her, but the roommate fell asleep. When the roommate woke up, a policeman was knocking on her door. The girl who left the residence hall room was found dead outside the door. The girl supposedly saw something that scared her so much that she ran to her room and began scratching the door of her dorm room until her fingers were bloody and worn down to the bone. Another version of the story involves a “hatchet man” who left the girl in a pool of her own blood after she was “brutally butchered, decapitated or stabbed,” according to the book.

Moon Ruin plays Blockhouse Bar By Kathleen Clark-Perez @KatPerezIN

The four-member band Moon Ruin arranged itself around a half circle of keyboards, mixers, synths, pedals and a drumset for its performance at the Blockhouse Bar on Tuesday evening. The band is comprised of lead vocalist Jared Bartman, guitarist Mike Noyce, drummer Dave Power and bassist Brian Wells. Noyce has played with Bon Iver and The Tallest Man on Earth. “Feel free to step up, hang out and chill out,” Noyce told the crowd. A group of people gathered near the stage while others sat on leather couches and chairs arranged throughout the venue. The set began with a recording of a person speaking. "Man to man, man to machine," the prerecorded message said. "We have come a long way." Then, the band performed the song “Occidental” from its new album, “Slow Down Ego.” The song included pre-recorded and live drums, along with Wells on a synth keyboard. One audience member let out a loud gasp as the electronic song came to an end. After rearranging one of the monitor speakers, the band played the song “Comrades In Arms.” Bartman, Noyce and Wells produced a haunting three-part harmony while Bartman played the sampler and keyboard. Between songs, Noyce thanked the owner and sound engineer of the Blockhouse for being so on top of

setting up all of the band's electronic equipment. “This is a super cool spot," Noyce told the audience. "You guys are really lucky." During the next song, “Walk Away From Me,” Bartman played electric guitar and provided echoing vocals. Following the song, Bartman told the audience about the new album.

“We just put out a record a little over a week ago at a little label in South Bend, Indiana, called Dilated Time Records,” Bartman said. Bartman released two albums prior to forming the band Moon Ruin, "The Kathy Clark E.P" in 2007 and "Misery Makes Strange Bedfellows" in 2013. Moon Ruin released its first album, "Slow Down Ego," on April 6.

Noyce said he lived in Bartman’s basement for seven months to work on the album and was woken up by Bartman’s two children at 7 a.m. every day after working on the album all night. Before the last song of the set, Bartman thanked opening acts Moor Hound, the stage name of Bloomington folk rock musician Steve Marino. Bartman also thanked local rock musi-

cian Frank Schweikhardt for closing out the evening. The final song called “See You Go” featured Bartman recording and looping his own voice and layering the loops to create harmonies over electronic beats. Bartman said he wanted to try mixing live instruments such as the guitar with electronic music from samplers and synths for the album "Slow Down Ego."

“I learned a whole new set of musical skills in writing the songs for 'Slow Down Ego,'” Bartman said. Bartman said the album represents giving up his ego by having his wife and children perform on the album too. “Music is an extremely important thing in my life,” Bartman said. “It doesn’t mean anything if things are not good with my family.”


Deciding to undergo labiaplasty I've been aware since my pre-teen years that I have rather large labia minora and have often felt very selfconscious to the point that I'd want to cut the "excess" off when I was young. I feel labiaplasty could help me. I'd like to speak with someone about this issue and find a doctor who can perform this procedure. Although vulvas vary in skin color as well as the shape and size of the labia minora or inner vaginal lips and clitoris, most women do not regularly experience vulvar pain

or labia pinching from daily activities like walking, sitting or wearing certain kinds of clothing. Many artists, including Judy Chicago and Betty Dodson have glorified the vulva as a graceful, flower-like, and awe-inspiring part of the body. This positive view of the vulva has been important to many women's appreciation of a body part that is all too often portrayed as dirty, smelly or ugly, which is why some health care providers try so hard to help women accept their genitals in their natural state.

And yet women's relationship with their genitals is enormously complex, as Eve Ensler showed in her play and book "The Vagina Monologues." Like you, some women feel physically uncomfortable due to the length of their labia. Their labia may get pinched when they wear certain kinds of clothing, engage in various forms of exercise or try different sexual acts. Labiaplasty, which is surgical cutting and reshaping of the labia, is sometimes used to help women in these situations. A difficulty with

labiaplasty is that while some popular magazines and websites write about or even promote what's been dubbed a "designer vagina" type of surgery, the scientific literature tells a story of ever-evolving surgical techniques. But only a little research exists about the ways in which surgery might positively or negatively affect women's experiences, sexual or otherwise. The vulva is rich with nerve endings and, as with other body parts, any time cutting occurs, there is the risk of damage to the ways in which you experience

sensation, making the surgical choice an important one. If you are interested in consulting with a health care provider with expertise in vulvovaginal health you might ask for referrals from the National Vulvodynia Association or the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Further, you may find that reading "The V Book: A Doctor's Guide to Complete Vulvovaginal Health" by Dr. Elizabeth Stewart will provide you with a fair amount of information about vulvar health and anatomy. Then, should you consult

with a health care provider about labiaplasty, you'll be well-informed and able to ask useful questions about how the surgery might change your vulva's appearance and potentially its sensation. Kinsey Confidential is part of a joint partnership between the IU School of Public HealthBloomington (IU SPH) and The Kinsey Institute. The column is written by Dr. Debby Herbenick, professor in the IU SPH. Read past Q&A or submit your own question at Follow us on Twitter @KinseyCon.

APRIL 19, 2018





"The Room," directed by Tommy Wiseau, was released in 2003. The film will play at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.

"Professor Animalia's Menagerie of Struggling Species," an exhibit to raise environmental awareness, is in Untitled Light, a Bloomington art hub and gallery. Joe Lee and Bess Lee are the artists behind the project.

'The Room' to screen Exhibit has circus banners with twist By Chris Forrester | @ _ChrisForrester

Midnight movie connoisseurs can catch a screening of the beloved disasterpiece “The Room” at 8 p.m. April 19 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Tickets to the event will cost $18 the day of the screening, but can be purchased in advance for $15. All ticket sale proceeds go to support Cardinal Stage Company. Often called the “Citizen Kane” of bad movies for being similarily unprecedented, “The Room” stars first-time director Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and produced the movie. The story follows Johnny, a modest man whose life falls apart at the hands of his malicious fiance, Lisa. Since “The Room’s” release in 2003, it’s become a cult phenomenon, and Wiseau has stayed in the limelight as an enigmatic icon of pure weirdness. Gabe Gloden, who will be presenting the screening at the BCT, said in an email that Cardinal Stage wanted to screen the movie because its clout has grown to rival that of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

“Cardinal Stage began doing screenings of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ many years ago,” he said. “’The Room’s’ cult has grown over the last 14 years to become a phenomenon only rivaled by ‘Rocky Horror.’” The film holds a score of nine out of 100 on movie review aggregation site Metacritic. Gloden said the movie is wonderful because of Wiseau's commitment to his vision, despite its absurdity. "He approached the project as an auteur, overseeing and controlling every aspect of the film to create something truly unique," he said. "Every step of the way, sane and rational people recommended he change certain things: plot points that made no sense at all, dialogue that was ham-fisted, music that was cloying, et cetera." According to the BuskirkChumley’s website, “The Room” has been screening for over a decade now in Los Angeles, fueled by its belovedness as a cult favorite. In 2017, “The Disaster Artist,” a making-of book coauthored by Wiseau’s “The Room” co-star Greg Sestero, was adapted for the big screen by actor and filmmaker James Franco.

Gloden encouraged screening attendees to have fun with the movie. “This is a BAD movie after all, so you can’t, under any circumstances, take it seriously, or you won’t enjoy yourself,” he said. He said while the Buskirk wouldn’t provide prop bags like it does for its annual “Rocky Horror” screenings, audiences are encouraged to bring props, such as spoons, rose petals, footballs and other paraphernalia, provided they’re easy to clean up after the show. “Similar to ‘Rocky,’ audience interaction and participation are part of the fun,” Gloden said. “You are encouraged to laugh, shout and use props throughout the show.” “The Room” is a must see for bad movie lovers, he said. He also added that Thursday’s screening is the best possible way to see the film for someone who hasn’t yet because of the immersive experience of seeing it amongst longtime fans. “I sincerely feel that the best way to be introduced to a new cult film is to see it with a group of fans,” he said. “The larger and more receptive the audience is, the better the experience will be for newbies.”

David Church, a film professor at Northern Arizona University, called the film a new generation’s Ed Wood.

“I sincerely feel that the best way to be introduced to a new cult film is to see it with a group of fans. The larger and more receptive the audience is, the better the experience will be for newbies. ” Gabe Gloden, Cardinal Stage Company managing director

Ed Wood was a controversial filmmaker whose 1959 film “Plan 9 from Outer Space” was long heralded as the worst movie ever made. He said “The Room” feels like the product of comic ineptitude. “It seems like someone’s idea of what an American movie should look like who hasn’t necessarily seen many American movies,” he said. “It seems like a sort of melodrama or romance directed by someone from outer space.”

Class of ’18 vodka released By Christine Fernando | @christinetfern

Bloomington distillery Cardinal Spirits has released a Class of 2018 Vodka in honor of IU's graduating class. The vodka is a limited edition bottling of Cardinal Spirits' signature vodka, which is fermented and distilled

on-site from white grapes, said Erica Sagon, Cardinal Spirits marketing and content director in an email to the Indiana Daily Student. "It lets IU grads take a little piece of Bloomington with them on their next adventure," Sagon said in an email. The vodka, which costs $25 per bottle, is only sold at the

distillery at 922 S. Morton St. Each bottle also comes with a free shot glass. Sagon said Cardinal Spirits vodka is gluten-free. She said the vodka is smooth enough to drink straight, but also goes well in cocktails such as Moscow mules. Cardinal Spirits' own recipe for Moscow mules calls for

1.5 ounces of Cardinal Spirits vodka, along with a half ounce of lime juice, ginger beer and a lime wedge, according to the Cardinal Spirits website. "It’s not your average tasteless, odorless vodka," she said in an email. "It has character by design — a very light entry, a full rich body, and a bright floral finish."

From IDS Reports

The April exhibit "Professor Animalia's Menagerie of Struggling Species" has come to Bloomington art hub and gallery Untitled Light, which is located at 212 West Fourth Street. The exhibit features circus banners meant to raise environmental awareness, according to an Untitled Light press release. Joe and Bess Lee make up the husband-and-wife team behind the project, according to the release. Bess Lee has worked as a school art teacher and painter while Joe Lee studied mime, juggling and clown skills at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College before going on to work with the Ringling Brothers, the King Brothers-Cole and Hoxie Brothers Circuses, according to his website. But Joe Lee switched to a career as an illustrator with his first project, "The History of Clowns for Beginners," according to his website. "I wanted to reclaim the disrepute that clowning had fallen into," according to his website. "When people thought of clown they thought of Ronald McDonald or Bozo, not Joey Grimaldi or the Kachina clowns of the Pueblos in the American southwest. There was this great connection across cultural times and meanings about what clowns were. That was a project I really wanted to do."

Joe Lee went on to illustrate for books about postmodernism, Shakespeare and Easter philosophy. He was also an editorial cartoonist for the Herald-Times, according to his website. For "Professor Animalia's Menagerie of Struggling Species" this April, Joe Lee worked with his wife to combine his circus background and illustrations, according to the release. "Using sideshow banners, Joe and Bess Lee combine whimsical, joyful folk art with the serious pathos of extinction," according to the release. Traditional circus banners are promotions that show an audience in awe of sword swallowers, trapeze artists and human cannonballs, according to the release. But Joe and Bess Lee's work puts animals in the place of performers — Monarch butterflies teetering on the high-wire, an elephant perched on a human finger and balancing the Earth precariously on its trunk, a black rhino performing an act of life and death. "Animalia is a reflection of these experiences as individual artists and concerned citizens — a reflection that will continue as a major focus in their work for years to come: creating art, creating community and creating awareness of the fragility of the planet," according to the release.
