First Dhaset‘o take ten years

by Teresa Kennedy Imprint staff Student safety, environmental protection, and University finances are some of the issues addressed by a new master plan for the development of University of Waterloo lands. The plan, expected to be approved at the UW Board of Governors meeting October 1, stresses long-term planning as afforded by the inherent longevity of our institution. ‘The Master Plan is intended to guide



next cent&y.”




A series of implementation reports will translate the master pIan into specific projects. Plans for the first phase of implementation, to stretch over a loyear period include: - Development of the south campus bookstore. While the bookstore needs to be expanded, plans include provisions for facilities to encourage private investment and increase University revenue. The report lists Parking Lots R and N as choice locations for the bookstore. - Construction,~f a Campus Centre in the empty space north of Math and Computer and south of BC Matthews Hall. The centre would become a

“major hub” of daily University life. According to the report, “a clear need still exists for a centre which acts as a casual and formal meeting place as well as an eating, recreational and athletic facility for the University population.” The report recommends encouraging UW’s Federation of Students to prepare a new proposal for a campus centre building “within the revised Plan.”


of the Master

- Construction of an Engineering and Earth Sciences building on land currently designated as Parking Lot Bl.








- The addition of a wing on the north side of Hagey Hall to accommodate the AccouG&g school. - Implementation of the first stages of north campus development. Environmental audits, detailed planning, municipal approvals, and road and sewer work must be completed before any construction the north campus.

can begin on

“Development of the north campus will be in the form of urban, mixed use neighbourhoods centered on a large environmehtal reserve.” Plans for the north campus include structures for research activity,

institutional activities, housing, and a hotel. According to the report, UW would spend $6.6 million over ten years to servitie the first area of land developed, while receiving $12.9 million in revenue. UW would keep ownership of the land through rental and lease arrangements to ensure a continuous


of revenue.

The report recommends the cieation of a University Development Corporation to oversee long-term prOpex?y management. It envisions the University as an “international leader” in environmental management and land stewardship. Environmental objectives for north campus development involve conserving water and protecting Laurel Creek from pollutants; creating landscapes “foi permaculture,” described as “market gardens, allotment gardens, nurseries, orchards and woocl10ts;” and designing energy-efficient transit systems and buildings. The north campus would become “a prototype of comprehensive environmental planning,“combining parks and recreational areas with wild areas to accommodate environmental research. The report emphasizes merging the nahual setting with man-made structures. to

create a distinct image for the Univer-

poses to encourage

Among other environmental considerations of the plan are the creation of a natural preserve along Laurel Creek, the practice of environmentally sound landscape maintenance,

the development of environmental research facilities, and the construction of’bikeways and walkways linking the campus to downtown Kitchener-Waterloo and to the Consemation Area. The plan stresses discouraging “deDendence on the automobile.” and outlines designs for safer pedestrian routes on campus. ‘Preference should

information to the public as to how individuals can contribute something every day to achieve waste reduction goals. Waste reduction is at the heart of the waste management issue. The University of Waterloo has maintained an ongoing waste reduction campaign for several years through its Waste Management Department. This department has concentrated its efforts on reducing the amount of garbage thatis thrown out by offices around the campus. It has been involved in locating blue boxes and desk top recyclers in the University’s offices, as *well as providing information regarding the 3R’s. 4

It was followed by a concert given by the Bird Sisters at the Chur& of the Good Shepherd. In 1988, approximately 1,000 women marched in 12 cities in Ontario - this year, over 3,000 women tuned out for the first-ever march in the town of O*ville, their anger and frustrations piqued by recent assaults and murders in that region

“Sexual violence is not soielv a women’s issue,” she said. “It isjan ssue that screams out to be addressed by all the power structures in our society - the political, the academic, th& religious,* the judicial, the medical, scientific, and the economic systems and structures.” In keeping with tradition, this year’s Take Back the Night March took place on the third Thursday of September (Sept. 19). The march is celebrated internationally; it began in Germany in 1978 where 3,000 women participated in a protest against rape and other violence against women. Marches soon followed in France, Canada, and the United States. Take Back the Night celebrates the one night of the “year when women can walkqnd work together in mutual protection and in affirmation of their rights to violence-free lives. Jhe march is a constructive mesins of protest and fosters a se&e of solidarity in the movement against violence against women.

Meisner, a local naturopath, wiIl be there to answer your questions regarding his profession. Improving the health of individuals through natural means demonstrates a respect for the earth similar to the beliefs of vegetarians. As we become more aware of .ouf fragile ecological problems we are learning to understand what-we do to our planet. Similarly, naturopathy allows us to become more aware of what we do with our bodies in times of sickness and to respect how we solve our sickness. By building our own immune system and through nurturing what we already have, we are demonstrating that we respect what we are putting in our bodies. From an ecological- perspective, less chemical interventiori in turn creates a lower chemical production, which means there is less interference with nature.

fireside chat by Peter Brown Isn’t life in the ’90s grand? Politica decisions and choices, from right here on tht University of Waterloo campus right up tit 401 to Ot@wa, are being made with consultal tion and in an incIusive and forthright man ner. In Utopia we are not, but I like to thinl! that such a place lies just a few kilometret closer now than this time last year. September, 1990 was not a pleasant time tc be a Canadian. Cracks in national unity haC grown into huge fissures after the failure OJ Meech Lake, and we hzrd just enjoyed beat@ up on a bunch of natives with our army. The fall of 1990 held unpleasant surprise

for University of Waterloo undergmduati ti well as we were dragged through an illconsidered and shoddily-run student lS building referendum, which resembled Meech Lake, ironkally enough. Butthis~it’sa~~lenewballgame-the maclotos~ of the nation and the mic= rocogm of the university. The fec&aI gownunent’s just-released constitutionA packageis~em~elof~~~~yco~co~ siltation. “Quebec’s distinctiveness and Canada’s linghtk duality” will be fecogn.ized&originalpeopleswillbeinvi~ed to participate in the debate! and a “Can&” clause wiU codify, just about qq r@httlGnkkg.mtirnent we hold. ,. Thisnewageofc~~tio~wouldeven~u so far as to have a body, called the Council oi the Federation, composed of representatives Irom the federal, provincial, and territorial levels that would determine shared-cast proqams and national standards. Of course, getting everyone to agree that Quebec is a titinct society, even though the statement would be placed elsewwhere in our archives, zould prove difficult. But all in all, this seems to be a positive dealing, no deterpolicy - ito background mining of our collective fate by teri white pys. Of course, this constitutional proposal would have to be approved by the House of Commons and provincial legislatures which are dominated by lok and lots of white guys. But that’s not the point. A lot of us regular Canadians will have been able to give our Ipinions about the different elements of the m&age. Whether this opinion is worth a jang is another question altogether. Now, back to UW. The Federation of students wants to go tti the people, in this case he undergraduates, on the topic of a student ife centre. And they, along with Associate ?rovost, Student Affairs Peter Hopkins, have ;et up an apparently consultative process to sather student opinion before deciding whether to even hold a referendum on the ,opic. *But unlike at the national level, our conMuency here at UW is relatively small. It is mssible to Plumb the depths of Dublic oDition, to find’out what a si&ficant ‘proporti’on If undergrads think, and [his makes y&r paricipation in this process all the more imporant. Another advantage that an electorate and :ommunity of this size has over federal )olitics is that one can come much closer to a ull spectrum of representation in decisionnaking bodies. The Student Life Committee s not dominated by any single interest group lnd any concrete proposal for an actual buildng must be approved by a referendum, a sysem that is’unIikely at the federal Irvel. Though cynicism is easy whether discussng federal politics, rem&n ber that YOU can kave a role in the decision-making-on this ‘ampus, at Ieast where the spend&g of S~Jlent money is concerned.

Threatened males & god-fearin’ ’ moralists 4,.

Yikes! . . . don’t look now, but here’s my $02 on Gwen Jacobs. No, just kidding. That issue has had too much exposure (ohhhh, the bad puns you come up with at 2 am). Besides, there’s no hope in hell of changing the minds of all thpse god-fearin’ moralists and ce&in anti-equality philosophers on campus (hello there, Gary). But I will discuss it to the extent that it serves to provide an example for my position in’ the following discussion. The issue reminds me of a conversation I had recently with a woman, that was about feminism in a general sense. She raised a point 1 hadn’t thought about before, in a different type of context: “How far are we supposed to go? Where do we draw the line (between purposeful and seemingly petty issues affecting women) Y Personally, I suppose the reason that I’m so wrapped up in feminism is that many males are responsible for institutionalizing inequzility and, as a member of that gender, I feel an obligation to at least try to change attitudes and do what I can to advance the movement. As well, my personality doesn’t lend itself to oppression. I’ve never really given a great deal of thought to drawing a line. But I don’t know if there should be, or if there even exists a line to be drawn. It’s an individual decision. Everyone has the freedu’m to pursue any issue to whatever extent they wish, or even totally ignore it. 1 admire Gwen for challenging the status quo And it wrms so ahviaus that I wonder why no one did this ‘before. Everyone’s wrapped up in affirmative act-ion, genderneutral language and renaming manhdes when all of a sudden a University of Guelph student - who happens to be a woman -

takes off her shirt and single-handedly generates an issue. Right out of nowhere. It’s great! The mass media is so predictable. But if Gwen did not have the incredible courage that she has, people wouldn’t be giving the issue any thought whatsoever. What I’m saying is that the lines slowly get erased and redrawn, advancing forward. At this point in time, it appears society is willing to consider the issue. Sure, there11 be a lot of letters from religious types and males who feel threatened, but they should be ignored. Some judge is eventually going to have to make a decision about it, and any decision has t? be better than having no issue to decide. I suppose that individuals in society will decide when the line has moved far enough fomard, and eventually the idea of fighting for women’s rights may become obsolete and equality will be taken for granted. It’s a nice thought, although not bloody likely to happen during my lifetime (and my birth certificate’s expiry date is a long way off). We in the university community are extremely isolated from the real world and the attitudes held by those who make and affect critical decisions in the real world. But for the time being, that other world that “free and democratic” society - cannot guarantee that women’s freedoms won’t be restricted because of the many barriers erected by men by virtue of their greater physical strength and the historical and systemic oppression that has resulted. . So women, and men, challenge the bullshit surroundm~ yau. It a protessc~r, for exdmyle, says something that offends you, speak up. Silence, in this issue, mt’ans acceptance. Silence changes nothing.

Whether or not society should allow the display of female breasts is a question for social moralists; Maybe we should, however, que$tion why it developed that females covered theirbreasts, masking strong sexual signals, then proceeded to reinforce their shape with brassieres and tight clothing. P.

I have been following the breast issue with keen interest (K Creed, Aug. 30; V. Haag, Sept. 13; P. Kirkland, Sept+ 20). Some consideration of the evolutionary history of the breast may be useful. For instance IC Creed is appalled that our society condemns the naked breast in public; her reasoning being that the breast was “intended for the feeding of infants.” While no one may dispute this physiological role, one might’ question whether other factors have influenced the development of the human female breast. Comparing breasts, one finds that other primates provide an abundant milks:&% without developing clearly * hemispherical breast swellings (D. Morris, The Naked Ape). In fact, it has been suggested that the design of the human breast actually hinders efficient suckling; take a ,look at the teat of a baby’s bottle. How, then, could evolutionary selective forces support such a

development? the female breast as a seconstructure provides appealing answers. Physic$o&ally, the presence of erectile tissues npports this view. Not only the nipples, but bre&t size increases. dramatically dqring sexual intercourse.

To the editor, During my first year on campus in 1987-88, there was a referendum asking whether or not Uw should join the Canadian Federation of Students. After a year’s leave of absence, I returned to campus in 1989-90 only to be faced with a referendum on the same issue. Last year, I was asked to vote on a Student Life Building. Now, this year, I will soon be asked to vote on whether or not UW should pull out of the Ontario Federation of Students. ‘Has it becomea perwniai eyent th& tie UW ,&deration of Students / must hbld a refe&tdum on so+ i,ssue which, given @e amow of v&r turn o$, is of iriterest to-h?ss than half) of pti student population? .“.,

the editor,

I am troubled with some peopIe’s perceptions of how the human body, male or female, should bp regarded. My crisis arises from the fact that my appreciation for what I consider to be a beautiful female body is seen by others as objecCfying and degrading ‘women (or should I use ‘women’ here). In reality I am showing veneration (ie. to regard .or treat with reverence - for those whg ,do not k,now the eQg@h language and thought :,I shotid use ‘~omyn’ ,earli& ‘for< God’s.,blessed ti@rk or mbre. likely ‘the result. of4n ‘extrem’e:,amount of pers4mal atter&@n .p an~care.‘-; e + . mm’ I “meet a& i&ligerit, w&-educated f: resgect,and &p@e @r G&-given intelligence or tKe pe*veraGe it took to‘ acquire, a specific level of education I may:, evenbe (dare I say it?] crowd by her advanced intellectual nature.

Why then am I sup&d to feel guilty when I respect, admire, and maybe even be aroused by not the mind but the physique. This physical adoration does not mean I automatically think of a woman with a nice assembly as a set of tits and an ass; in actuaI fact the opposite is true. I immediately look for ways to meet the girl in the hopes that she has gifted faculties and, in that case, that she will want to or I am able to initiate the beginnings of a relationship (this does not mean physical although if she and I become mutually attracted I would never rule out the possibility of advancing a relationship from the intellectual stage to the intelleaal and hysical stage). I? er physical beauty may have been the instrument that originally drew my attention in this case but that does not always have to be the case. I could be originally drawn to her by an intelligent comment in class or any other such show of mental aptitude which would of course bring on the same reaction as a nice body. ’ This reaction is not degrading #by any means and I imagine that more women than just the ones I associate with react in a similar manner to men that have a pleasing structure. There definitely is not anything wicked about this natural response but what is truly malevolent is the attempt of some obtuse folk to convince us that physical admiration is .vulgar and somehow demeaning. Anyone that can only respect a person for their mind is missing out on a decent and fun part of life and should seriously seek counselling to help expand their frontiers.

Canadian identity? Ask the vampires

To the editor, On behalf of the Shinerama executive, we would Iike to thank the 1,500 frosh who woke up bright and early Saturday, September 7 to shine for cystic fibrosis. $45,000 was raised on this day. This is a huge sum of money that wiIl, through this charity, hopefuIly go a long way in the fighyo find a cure for this deadly-disease. This is anaccomplishment that all of UW should be proud of. Besides the energetic fresh, this whole event could not have happened without the dedicated work of a small army of volunteers who came from student groups representing aII areas of UW. Thanks to them and to the Shiners - you people should feel proud to know that it was you who made this day hap pen!

Coat check blues

by Brian Orend It is politically correct to argue, for the sake of unity, that Canada possesses a natio&I identity. However, like most things stamped with the PC label, this assertion is dubious when appraised &ically. Indeed, one can go so far as to maintain that it is impossible to arrive at a true conception of Canadian identity. The first rationale supporting this claim is rooted in the Scottish philosopher David Hume’s unique account of personal identity. According to Hume, whenever one reflects upon the nature of oneself, one can discern only sensations and perceptions of oneself and not oneself directly. If one extrapolates this Humean analysis from personaI to national identity‘ one can acknowledge that one cannot know the invariabIe essence of a country but only perceptions of it. And if one cannot know this essence, then there are no grounds for claiming that there is one.

W&zt musqiwrudesin identityb disguise?

To the editor, Last Thursday, I attended and participated in the Barenaked Ladies concert at Federation HaII. The show was stupendous, the evening was not. Having been at Waterloo for more than three years, I had always found Fed Eiall to be satisfactory in the past. The complaint that I have to mike has to do with the coat check For a full capacity crowd, the coat check was not opened. This may sound trivial, but to anyone who rode a motorcycle, the task of carting a helmet and a leather jacket about the place was not needed. I hope in the future that “Canada’s largest student-run pub” could keep the students in mind to a greater degree. Sometimes I really wonder where my Fed Hal1 fees truly go. A. Boucher

The second fact thaiadds credence to the thesis that there is no Canadian identity deals with the criteria that something has t0 fulfill for it to have an identity. It is often said that identity impIies the ownership of scissors and glue. As scissors, identity bids earlier’stages of existence to the later ones, making a person/ country a relatively unchanged entity over time. Here is where the difficulty arises. For, neither Canada nor any .other nation can claim that it has remained constant over the centuries. Consider just a few instances: the ethnic majority in Canada used to be Aboriginal, then French, theti English, and today there isn’t one; economic life in Canada was once primariIy ruraI and agricultural, pre-

* sently it is urban and industrial; and Canada was formerly an oligarchic cdony, both as -New France and as British North America, today it is an independent and democratic state. These radical transformations dictate that Canada does not fulfiI1 the second critefion and thus there is no such thing as a Canadian identity. The disc&ery that there is no innate Canadian essence provokes one to inquire into the nature of what currently masquerades in identity’s guise. The cliches that are usuaIIy trotted out - bilingualism, social programs, middIe-power status, and the cultural mosaic - are little more than that. This is not to say that these concepts do not describe genuine attributes of Canada but rather that it is an exaggeration to Iabel any of them as constituting our identity. Philosophically, they just aren’t up to snuff. The truth of the matter seems to be that these, traditional concepts arise not from identity but from ideology. The difference being that these notions did not blossom naturally out of a magical Canadian SOUI but were deIiberately fabricated by pubIic policy choices and were subsequentIy mythologized by the media and the people as a whole. To illustrate, reflect on the genesis tid development of WA Rail, the CBC, medicare, and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The lack of a Canadian identity might be upsetting to some. However, what if Canada actually possessed thii well-defined identity that self-pro&&ned patriots so desperately seek? It seems quite plausible that such an event would be disastrous. For, if Canada had an identity, then it would have to remain faithful to it. The range of policy alternative would be correspondingIy.confinecI within the rigid borders of this identity - anything outside this holy realm would be denounce as “unCanadian.” Hence, the freedom to adopt new

and perhaps progressive sensibilities would be curtailed. The closing of the identity would close the Canadian mind. Lest anyone consider these possibilities idle speculation, ponder life under McCarthyism in the America of the 1950s. Therefore, the Iack of a Canadian identity is actually a liberating reality that aIIows for perpetual self-creation and national renewaI in the tradition of Nietzsche’s Superman. Perhaps a slightly crude analogy that summarizes this argument is that of Canadians being vampire people. Like vampires, who are themselve invisible in mirrors while their clothes appear, Canada dresses itself up in a variety of ornaments - a cIoak of tolerance, a cummerbund of social programs, a vest of democracy - but the core is hollow and empty. Also, similar to vampires who can change into wolves, bats, and other creatures of the night, the lack of identity affords Canqda the ability to transform itself in ways that it vaIues. So, if the time arises when the existing myths are no longer relevant, like now, the need is not to lament the death of a nation but to harness the creative energies required for the birth of a new one.

Transiti0.n by Phillip


I have left the preserved setting of the Biology Woodlot near Columbia Me. It may be sometime before I return to it; if at all. The reflections I have made I have made with sincere apprehension. It is not just a romantic longing for a return to some Arcadian paradise. Nor did I intend to diminish the harsh reality of natural relationships among the various plant and animal members. However, if I’ve striven to present a view of nature that is too idyllic for some, if nothing else, it reminds us of what’s at stake. Human beings I feel, are creatures that tend to symbblize, abstract and modify their surroundings at some pointin their biological and social development. Culture in the broadest me&g. Hence, one of the most fundamental aspects of such activity has been myth-making storytelling, and even modern literature. (I am mindful of the current fascination among critics and students of literature and philosophy toward post-modernism and the process of deconstruction; the content of much of the zicrimonious debates aside, is this not an example of how human beings of one particular culture are struggling to still come to terms with their contextual surroundings, which is all but shattered?) ClassicalIy, this provided limits to the use of environmental resources. Nonetheless, the trap of natural fallacy can be difficult to transcend. When Darwin returned from his sojourn in the Galpagos and published his journals, he sometimes described nature as brutal and violent, or interdependent and complementary. The Victorians saw in the former description a justification for continuing the removal of humanity from nature. But a paradox emerges: What is natural is not necessarily human; what is human is perhaps natural. Yet, why shouldn’t we think that it might be the inverse: what is human is perhaps not natural; what is natural is necessarily human? For is it right that human violence be institutionalized into war? I find it absurd that I must defend a negative answer; it is an affront to a rational humanity. It becomes one more strand ‘wound tighter into the Go&in knot that still haunts us. So how do we ethically limit our impact upon the natural world? How.can we deny those who have never enjoyed the pleaswes (vices?) of modem consumerism their natural (moral?) right to attain what has always been a dream? For better or worse, we have taken a journey from nature to culture. In the transitory interval between these two points, will we be able to find a milieu that encompasses both so that tie do not end up in a one-dimensional fragment of reality? A world where growth and development leave behind a simplified, homogeneous system in time and space where a complex, diversified ecological community once existed in wise tradition and place? Hopefully in the coming weeks, I will attempt td come to terms with my own journey.

letters, with ’ pictures of weeping widows, parents, children etc. as the story warrants. (Just as an aside, even beyond the cover, I - perhaps coldheartedly simply wondered why police were treated like this by the media, whereas when an Asian gang member or someone from Jane and Finch is kilIed, there’s a small story between an ad for Superfitness and The Brick, and the body is drained and thrown in a ditch, or shipped back to its country of origin. It doesn’t seem unrealistic to expect the deaths of all people to warrant the same amount of respect.)

I suppose that if I even want to mention the Toronto Sun, I should justify myself. No I don’t read it, no I don’t like it. There. The cover of the Toronto Sun this Tuesday was a prime example of two of the most disgustingly hypocritical aspects of the news media and the society it reflects (or, in the case of the Sun, claims to r,eflect). The large coIour photo displayed a coffin with a Canadian flag draped over it, solemn police officers carrying it. How the Toronto Sun can possibly use a death to sell advertising is not even near‘the realm of the defensible, . but there it was. Like three-year-old Kayla and all the countless missing people, the Sun willingly and gladly sells death as fawning millions pick up their daily rag. There


a diEhence


reporting death and seI1i.q death. To report a death is to use facts and display a certain amount of tact. To sell death is to put COP KILLING in large


-But there’s even more hypocrisy when you think about the media’s two-faced treatment of police. Duting a strike or other moments of tension, the police are portrayed ‘as the bulldogs ‘of the government, and criticized at every turn. Headline and cuver photo for Monday. Policeman shot in a gang war. Headline and cover photo for Tuesday. It is pretty sickening when you think about it. .

podiums and say: ‘but I’ve got the answers that you need! I’m the man to lead you into the future!” And, indeed, it is in this way that politic@ns are much like religious figures. For, they too idealize the future - though with them, with reIigious propagandizers, theirs is not a foreseeable future; they mythologize and fittionalize a future beyond even death: the after-life. Religion has historically fed off people’s obsession with tomorrow and beyond. They have both fuelled this obsession and then used it, used the ensuing frenzy, as a way of jus~g their own presence within the world, justifying their position in the hierarchy of society, They will manipulate minds and wave ‘righteous fingers because they hatie found the “correct” formula for marketing the after-life; theirs is a monopoly on death. (Oh, how Marxist of me to say that!) And we-&people have eaten it all up. Accepted these empty promises as our ticket into some blessed nether world, as our means of salvation. And like the politicians, religious sorts have bullied their ways into positions of prominence within the societal picme by giving free passage to a ‘Ibetter tomorrow.” I think of someone like Hitler at this point: a tyrannical political figure to be sure, but at the same time, he was also very much a quasireligious figure for the German people. His was a promise of a “thousand-year reign” for the people, a powerful and intoxicating dream of absolute prominence within the world, a dominant position throughout the future of his Aryan race. And the Germans became drunk on his words. Many have asked: how could it happen? Six million Jews? A I boorish figure like AdoIf Hitler given absolute authority over a cultured and literate race of people? Hbw could the Germans n& have said anything about his tyrbnny? They knew of his intentions in Me Kantpf. They watched blindly as his Gestapo went on witch hunts. How could all of this been allowed to happen? Could it be the promise’of a powerfuf future (th+ would only Iast 12 years)

and now perhaps? “A better tomorrow,” perbps? The point here is that we have been obsessed by tomorrow for too long. We are afraid of it; we live for it, we kill for it, we die for it, we are warped by it. The future controls and consumes our thoughts, it manipulates our perceptions, and, most importantly, it absolves us of our responsibilities in the here and now. And this is indeed the crisis. For if we were to believe that the painful and vile legacy left by the Nazi regime has been dissolved, we should re-analyze the situation. Everyday we ’ allow ourselves either a blind.adherence or a passive acceptance or a multitude of absolving excuses why we cannot do anything about criminal leadership around the world, an ever-increasing social instability, environmental decay, massive famine and poverty, genocide on a grand scale (just like Nazi Germany). They all happen, and we witness the affects of these travesties on our local news every night Yet, as we turn off the televisions, put down the newspapers, we can#dismiss the issues from our minds as if they were mere by-products of the here and now, and, in that way, not worthy of our serious or immediate considerations: the politicians promise a “better tomorrow;” religion promises a GardenJike after-life! We have that to look forward to! Our children will h&e it better! We are more blind th&~ ever before. The irony is that we predicate so much of our own lives on ensuring, on hoping, that our children will have it better in the future, yet, it seems quite clear that 40 or 50 years from now, eople won’t be thanking their forefathers Por the wonderful world diat they live in. They will either be writhing in some nuclear muck or else they will-be questioning why people back then allowed so much pain, such lunacy, such delusion to have existed. They wiU wonder how we could have let these travesties go unchecked for so- long a time. Indeed, these are the same questions that we ask about the Germans of World War II. Have we not yet learned from the Nazi legacy of silence and indifference.

And with our eyes firmly focused on the future - the today, the here and now, is lost, blurred .amidst endless yards of political rhetoric and religious promise. The here and how, ironically, does not even exist for us. The here and now, that which should rnem the most, cannot even be seen, nor accepted, nor allowed to be. The future stares down upon us like some malevolent ideal / ‘demon that has turned against it’s creator, that has forced its influence over those who have sought to fabricate it. The future is both the ideal and the nemesis, the goal and the distraction. And it is the threat to the here and now that stands above all other so-called “evils”in our society. We allow it to wash over us, to cleanse us, to relieve us of our responsibilities in the now. Yet, I say this as merely a message to those wh6 have not yet gotten the point about the delusions of futuristic discourse. For many, the future already is”just a dream” - perhaps for the homeless of any given society, perhaps for the children who walk into grade schools with high-powered artillery, perhaps for the rapists, the *thieves, the murderers, the suicidal (and those who aspire to be such) If nothing else, the total of their collective message is that the future is not real. It is only a gift for the privileged few, the “socially acceptable.” Though, for the former, the future has no meaning, and their activities in the here and now only seem to further reinforce this point Indeed, theirs is a perverse way of speaking. Yet, one must remember that they have several millennia of idealistic discourse to attack, historical delusion to dvercome, religious and political promise to un-write. A big job - they may need some constructive suggestions as to how to be more effective with their message. How should they market themselves? What’s their next move to . become mainstream? Let’s get a game plan on this. . .

it wiI1 be a matter of time before someone discovers them on their own? People can be manipulated into liking something, but that usually results in a lunatic, frenzied flash-in-the-pan succew. that everyone gets tired of after a while. This is the absolute antithesis of Canadian contint objectives, which strive to create a healthy, self-sushiring industry with stable, bankable stars. A Canadian version of the New Kids would give lots of money to the Canadian music industry, but when the craze dies down, the situation would be unchanged from before. Which ret&ns us to poor Bryan Adams. It’s ironic that the CRTC’s golden boy is being tarred and feathered by Defenders of Our Culture. In the end;it seems, they’re just another bunch of bureaucrats, more concerned with sticking to regdations than with results. This tea-time Gestapo is uniquely Canadian



suit of a questionable goal. Instead of trying to make Canadkn music more competitive, they strive to eliminate the competition, stepping on a lot of innocent toes in the process.

Along with those fundamental goals, it is concerned with such global issues as the preservation of the Earth’s environment, human ‘- (especially children) and cultural rights, a human centred economic order, world peace, the responsible use of science and technology in society, an honest and impartial global media, and others. # Three Waterloo students attended the fifth annual YBF International conference in Oslo, Norway this summer, which had a specific theme of Human Rights with sub-categories of cultural, children’s and environmental rights. The students were Marion Black (Spanish, Latin American Studies), Caroline Guirguis (MA - Economics), and Andrew Pape (Systems Design Eng., Int.

The belief is that some kind of institutionalized programs should be enacted so as to bring about a level playing field. But this policy is one that in itself that both is an attack on the natural liberties of individuals and a failure to bring about the ends that it claims to support. Quotas in businesses atid universities cannot hope to bring about a change in the prejudicial attitudes of individuals. But in trying to do so, they deal a severe blow to any notion of fairness. To counteract an attitude that uses race and sex as a method of Wg employees, these programs q and invoke a set of policies and procedures that themselves use sex and race as a hiring practice.

be dealt with. An examination of this problem can be seen here at the University of Waterloo. Under the Hiring Procedures for Faculty Appointments, the policy states that “Where ti man and a woman are perceived to be equally suitable, for the position, preference will be given to the underrepresented gender, particularly departments with a severe male/ female imbalance.” Obviously, where the problem lies is in the phrase “equally suitable for the position.” This asks for a basically impossible situation. Problems will arise if individuals feel that they have been abused by the affirmative action program whether they are a minority or not. Some of the problems of affirmative action have been pointed out in this article. There are even more questions of whether or not women, for example, are indeed underrepresented in Canadian universities. This has been denied recently by professors and warrants further examination. There is no denial that minorities are excluded by many organizations, but the met$od of correcting this must deal with prejudices inherent in the indiviguals, rather than using impotent legislation that enforce racist policies.

Making unfair hiring practices public is a far more effective and a far less discriminatory method of counteracting the problem. Rosa Parks had no affirmative action laws behind her, yet the Alabama bus strikes were a successful move by a minority using their own initiative to evoke change. But minorities are not the only groups affected by these programs. If there is a system of quotas, where a certain number of positions musi be filled by a minority, then any organization which is affected by these quotas must lose out on any white male which is more qualified than the minority being forced into the position. In effect, employers are being forced to hire people simply because of their colour or race, and not, as the market

An unfortunaIe aside to Waterloo’s super defence is that it may have cost

the Guelph quarterback Wally Gabler the rest of the season. On the third-

down play that got the Wtiors the ball back, linebacker Benoit Drouin penetrated the Guelph back-field and laid a hit on Gabler from the side just as he released the ball. As the Warrior defence celebrated the fact that they had stop the Guelph drive, it became apparent that Gabler was not moving. Gabler was taken off the field on a stretcher and, to add insult to injury, was charged for intentional grounding on the play. He is not expected to return this season Gabler’s

absence will pose a major

One of the keys of this game was an element that the Warriors have been getting on a regular basis now. It was

the big defensive play. Each of the. four Waterloo interceptions came when the Gryphons were either in the Waterloo end of the field, or within 10 yards I of being in the Waterloo end of the field. Despite giving up 258 net yards to the’Guelph passing game, Waterloo came up with the big plays that turned great Guelph offensive drives away without scoring points. Another stabilizing factor to the ’ Warrior game, is the emergence of the offence. It is utterly amazing that in a Canadian football game with three downs, that an offence can be almost e&rely

The Athenas’ next opponent was a highly skilled University of Toronto team which was used to playing on artificial turf and were thus thrown off ,balance by the erratic performance of the ball as it bounced over the grass. Midway through the first half, Toronto scored a questionable goal, putting them in the lead. Later, the Athenas were awarded a penalty’ stroke.

However, Coach Mace* WAS not disappointed. The season’s just started and hopes are high for the tennis Athenas to improve their game, as

individuals and as a team, and tc make the final four in November. The Athenas are home this weekend playing host to Windsor ad York.

The 1991 women’s team consists of seven players. Returning from last year are Jennifer ,IUriquin, Manju Sekhri and Renee Kasta. New to the team are Cheryl Agina and Yolanda Lewczuk, both freshwomen, secondyear Teresa-Ann Kindree, and grad student Carolina culik.

Waterloo met Laurier late last week in the season opener, but it may have been a bit too early for the LadyHawks, as they were no match for the superior power of the Athenas. Waterloo took the day 8 games to 1. (Technical note: Each game won translates into one point. For non-mathies, myself included, this means UW,has 8 points, Laurier l!) On Saturday, the Athenas met more strin@nt.,opposition but with less satisfactory results. M&aster won the day 7 games to 2.

Ruaaers run Giiigged by Peter Brown Imprint sports The Waterloo Wtior rugby team is reeling after splitting two games this week and losing three key players to injury. They defeated York 9-6 and lost to McMaster 14-6. They have been able to amass a 2-1 record without scoring a single try, and Judgement Day has arrived with the possible loss of Edson Castilho, the provider of Waterloo’s only points in ::I games, 30 points on 10 penalty . Last Saturday at York University in Toronto, the Warriors edged the Yeomen 9-6 in a match that was physically Punishing for both teams. One York player in Particular was warned repeatedly about high tackles, and was finally ejected from the game late in the second half, not before he could injure a War&r player’s shoulder with, yes, another high tackle. York’s rough play handed Waterloo enough penalty chances to generally disrupt the Yeomen’s offensive flow and for CM.lho to boot home nine points, Waterloo’s own lack of offensive momentum was ail too obvious on Wednesday night’s loss to Mac at Columbia Fields. Again, Cast&o provided Waterloo’s only points with two penalty kicks to give Waterloo an early lead 6-4. But the kicker had to leave the game because of injury and the Warriors’hopes ebbed away from there. With Mac ahead 11-6 late in the game, Waterloo’s replacement kicker missed an average Penalty kicked, and Mac later nailed the coffin with a kick of their own for the final 14-6. score. Star strum half Steve Slater and Anthony Beat-tie were two more Warriors down with injuries.

Athena soccer gets rolling

In exhibition play, Waterloo met the women of Conestoga College the following day, and despite a slow start, proceeded to blast Conestoga back to its Doon campus with a score of 3-1. Unfortunately, the good fortunq of last week did not carry over to this past Wednesday, September 25. The Athenas met Laurier in their first home game of the season, and hopes were high that Waterloo would display the same kind of prowess shown last week. The Athenas didn’t d&ppoint their loyal fans, as they thoroughly dominated the first half and forced the majority of the play into the Laurier end of the field. An unfortunate hand ball resulted in a Laurier penalty kick, which just past goal keeper Andrea Jalbert, pulling the Lady Hawks ahead 1-O until halftime.

With less than 10 minutes remaining Nazir Sicoor buried a loose ball into the GueIph mesh, sealing the victory for the Warrior side. The lowscahng game was however, hardly indicative of Warrior play. Guelph failed to register one decent scoring opportunity throughout the match. Once again, a stifling Warrior defense shut down its foes. Scan “Air” Taggart dominated the defensive skies, repeatedly heading the ball out of harm’s way, while Mark Blake, Greg Pappas, and Paul Knafelc stunted any Guelph ground assault.

The ulti.Wate sport by Erik Lindala special to Imprint

When a ball dreams, it dreams of being a frisbee. It is people’s fanaticism with flying discs that has @en birth to one of the most exciting team sports, Ultimate. Qtiickly becoming the trendy sport of the ‘~OS,

Ultimate is currently riding a crest of unprecedented popularity. Ultimate (so named because it’s the ultimate form of anti- avity) uniquely combines elemen E of football, soccer, and basketball, in one fastpaced game. The frisbee used is larger than most are accustomed to, weighing in at 165 grams. Its larger size and weight make the disc less prone to being

blown around. The playing field is a 50 by SOmetre rectangle with two ZO-metre endzones. There are seven players per team, usually made up of both men and women. The object of the game is to pass the disc from player to player down the field until it is caught in the endzone, and a point is scored. Running with the frisbee is not

Adventuri ~~&&le

allowed. Rather, the player must stop and establish a pivot foot. The player with the disc is named the dischandler, and throws a pass to his/her teammates. The opposing team must attempt to knock down or intercept the pass to gain possession of the disc, Once a point is scored; the teams trade ends and play begins again. No physical contact may occur between players, nor may the disc be knocked out of a player’s hand, A half-time occurs when a team reaches eight points, The game ends when one of the teams reaches 15 points. Ultimate’s appeal lies in many factors. The game-is very gracefuiwith leaping one-handed dives, fieldlength passes, and arcink passes. The action is non-stop, with the games’ momentum changing instantly with every turnover.

September is stock renewal time at Adventure Guide. We invite you to visit our special events and fake advantage of our ongoing specials. New products are arriving daily so come on in. to say hello and look around!!

The use of ,a frisbee also adds another element to the game. The disc produces it’s own lift, and isn’t limited to a ball’s two-dimensional motion. In the hands of a good dischandler, the disc can be made to curve, dive, arc, and sail, unlike a ball. Ultimate is an inexpensive game,

. whose ness.

only requirement

is good fit-

Unlike most games, the players in Ultimate, referee their own game. Once a violation occurs, the player who is violated makes the calI. Some may think this would make the game unfair or very slow, but the most integral part of the sport is the spirit of the game. Players simply want to * play, and won’t let petty calls slow hoti the action. The spbrtsmanship that permeates the game also allows team captains to make mutually agreed-upon changes to the rules.

Thegamesriiuled that of many 1 major-kaee spurts Started as a one-time game in 1968, Ultimate has grown onto the world stage. Last July in Toronto, 68 teams from Finland, Japan, Costa Rica, the US, and many more countries competed in the week long World Ultimate Club Championships. The event brought together some of the finest frisbee players in the world. The quality of play and excitement level of the games rivaled that of many major-league sports. The Toronto Ultimate League exploded from eight teams to twenty this past year. Because the game is easy to learn and is inexpensive to play, it is a welcome alternative to other sports. The team I started on this year was named SPIN. Made up exclusively of new players to the game, it took a while for us to congeal as a team, but we are looking for big things in the ‘92 season. People who play Ultimate frisbee are fanatical about the sport Their eyes light up at the menlion of the

word “fisbee,“and are willing to play under almost any weather condition. Once you witness your pass perfectly arcing into the hands of a teammate in the endzone, the fanaticism erupts. Keep an eye out for UItimate games being organized in your area. Undqubtedly a pick-up game will be played at UVV before the first snowfall.

But Justin Sulivan and New Model Army surused the mediocrity of their urroundings and delivered a loud md frenetic sample of the 12 long rears that they have spent struggling o be heard. They must have felt tidly out of place here at She enovated mousehole called the rrasheteria. Even in Toronto, the argest venue they played was the )pera House, whereas in their native England they’ve played in front of rowds as large as 30,000. The rrasheteti held not many more than 100 when NMA took the stage at 11 pm.

“Guelph, at last,” said frontman Justin Sullivan and wasted no time hu&ng the band and audience into “Whirlwin@.” Immediately, NMA set the program for the evening, loud

songs with a rejuvenated soul. It was extremely pleasing, but perhaps not all that surprising thh songs from their last album gained completely new energy on stage. “Whirlwind” a good song - became great when performed in front of a live audience. Sullivan throttled the microphone and glared at the audience while smashing out the lyrics. The’energy flowed from the instruments into the crowd. The fans hopped themselves into a frenzy, making sure that we all left with some sweat that wasn’t our OWII.

The show was loud, which wasn’t really a problem unto itself, but the loudness was distorted which made for some uncomfortable screeching. The sound of the whole band was well balanced, except for some rather subdued work on keyboards, but the keyboardist showed his real skill on the violin on tracks like “1mpurity”as well as a Gaelic number in the middle , of another song. The band held their own on the minuscule 15foot stage. They lurched over into ‘the crowd several

of US came

with the double shot of “5 1st State of America” (which Sullivan lovingly dedicated to Canada) and “Get Me Out.” The two songs played off each other’s loud loudness and came dangerously close to sending the crowd smashing into each other at a high enough speed so that they would simply become one writhing mass of homogeneous flesh. Well almost. Five songs were from the last albumlmputiq and the rest of the tracks were familiar enough: “Stupid Questions,” ‘Liberal Education,” and ‘TGreen and Gray” all showed up. 0ne noticeable exception was “Whitecoats,” which the band no doubt stayed away from for fear of a stdmpede of said Whitecoats from local universities. With upcoming xenophobic laws from the United States to deny access to new bands, as well as bands thatare not already a success abroad, it could be some time before New Model Army returns, if ever. This raises the po&ibiiity of this having been NMA’s last show in Canada. They probably won’t have the finances to tour Canada alone. If this turns out to be the case, it truly will be a shame. At least here in North America, NMA will have lost the battle against the purveyors of musical sludge that they have fought against so hard for so long.

ICE was first on stage. The band consists of only two members, front nan Stephen F. White and guitarist Robin Bailey. White is the main drivng force behind ICE, doing all the titing and composing. Bailey, a competent local musician; is a late addition to ICE, added to aid in the live performances. The lineup as it stands right now has been together less than two weeks. ICE presented two main dilemmas. The first being: How do you write an objective review after hearing only a four-song

stage show when you have a twoman band that has been together ten days? More songs and more time together will do nothing but help ICE. Their heavily sampled show opened with the single chosen for CFNY’s Modern Music compact disc, “Strange Attractor.” White seemed uncomfortable on stage, and did little to generate excitement in the moderately filled club. Bailey was most notable for his absence, a credit to his experience in the lrxlal bar scene. Rather than push a rapport that was obviously not yet established between White and himself, he merely played his guitar never once infringing on White’s keyboard crowded side of the stage. Their set flew by, ending on a lessthan-stellar note. In a break from the very competent single Strange Attractor, White finished with a song called “Wirehead” which apparently is a rap song gone electronic.

These boys go out of theirway to make sure you are having a good time. Thursday was no exception.

They dedicated other songs to such things as Monika Deol (“the sexiest woman in Toronto”), Mothers, a cure for hangovers,,and The second set necrophiliacs.

Unfortunately at Phil’s, the impact of his high-energy dance routine was lost due tp an engineering screw up

The show had no drawback what so eirer. It is only out of a deep fear of becoming adjective man that I don’t go on for several pages describing what a great show it was.

But keep in mind that there are many other bands that play just as hard and manage to be good, and even great bands such-as the Minutemen on one hand, and the Wedding Present on the other.

DHI, standing for Death and Horror Inc., is a fresh breath of boiling chrome. It only takes seconds to sink in and become a s&d part of you. With the release of their first fourtrack EP, Chemical Land, DHI make their mark on the cyber-punk industrial scene. They join the ranks of fellow Canadians Skinny Puppy along w&h Ministry and KMFDM. The twenty4.nute EP contains two versions of “Chemical Land”and a tune called, “%&case Repetition.” Both have a beat a railway tie driver on a healthy dose of speed and steroids cm&l.n’t. top.

An example 0f.hi.s ineptness: “You told me baby, you had time -to kill / But then you tossed me out like an overdue bill.” Even more distressing than DiNizio’s forced rhyme is the band’s reluctance to capitahze on the driving Rickenbacker guitar sound thatmade previous efforts worth listening to. With the exception of ‘TeU Me When Did Things Go SO Wrong,” “Girl In Room 12,” and ‘Top Of The Pops,” the focus is on a light&sound that spotlights DiNizio’s voice.

to commercialism, and offer no apology to those fans who wish a return to Lee’s vice-grip days. Though the recording process has, to some extent, become instinct to the band, they continue to retain the musical insistence and anger which characterized them since album one. Evidence of this comes on the opentrack “Dreamline,” which es explodes after a short introductory fuse. From the very first bars, it’s obvious the band has never simply requested answers to fundamental existential questions, but demanded them.

Rush’s fate ,following their forthcoming world tour is undecided, as it has been after the completion of every album since Power Windows. The members each have families and &an&l security, and the music breathes with the idea that it’s written for fun, not necessity.

If the aesthetics cops ever hear it, his cover of Little Willie John’s ‘Teardrops on Your Letter” will be enough to land James in the slam for another extended stay. I have to blame James for the mediocrity of this album - the band is good, containing veteran JB sidemen like St. Clair Pinkney and Sweet Charles Sherrell,r and Joe Collier. James is the producer, the executive producer, and, of course, the focus of the LP - so guilt sits squarely on his shoulders. Much as it hurts me tosay it, this isa complete &ashout.

Not that its time, the present, is delicate and delightful. Quite the opposite. The present is paradbxical, as is this beautifully heavy novel with a light touch, Immortality. Translated from the native Czech, Immottulity is Kundera’s first novel since the end of the Cold War and the restructuring of Eastern Europe. For an expatriate living in France-whose last novel studied the intricacies of modern life on both sides of the Iron Curtain before, after, and during 1968’s Prague Spring, these must bi significant events. And they are. But Immortality sets them in. a broader context. This is not a novel about the end of communism, though the effects of the recent changes are @ evidence. This is a novel about Europe(ans), past and present, a continent too old and too &ch ravaged by supposed Great Leaders this century to trust too quickly in another promise of renewal. The novel explores the reiationship between persona%& and environments in intricate detail. This is a novel about a continent and its people stuck in time, not Movements or destiny or the Great Future.

of the studio


There might be a surprise coda to a song or there might be a lengthy jam in the middle of it And there were also plenty of surprises in tern of song selection: a couple new Gigs, quickie instrument& a ‘bad swing” version 6f Geehwin’s “SummerI time/ the juliilant t&e on the old Split * ge>fl “Six M+ths in a Leaky ‘Boat.” ~ . Y What unified all this was the group’s tremendous stage presence. Neil had only to offer an emotive sigh to set hundreds of teenage mouths ascreaming, whilk Tim was happy to’ play the hyped-up Vegas clown. The whole band was all over the stage, happily leaping here and there. These goofy theatrics made for two hours of solid fun. The guys in Crowded House are genuinely funny, and without the “see how clever we are” subtext presented by other jokester bands (did someone say Barenaked Ladies?). To give an accurate sense of such an expansive show, it is perhaps wisest to simply synopsize a few moments: - Tim Finn idly strums the first chord of “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and

the screams




plussed, he hi& the same chord a few

- Richard Thompson strolls onstage to join the band for a couple songs. Before launching into “Sister Madly,” the ban&jams with Thompson for a and Neil exclaims unwhile, abashedly “I cant believe I’m trading licks with Richard Thompson!”

- Shortly before the first of two encores, the audience finally gets up off its asses and crowds the front of the stage. During ‘Better Be Home Soon,” Neil invites couples onstage to dance. Sadly, there are no takers. - Neil plays a tihirnsical solo piano ballad that he claims to have written with his eight-year-old boy. He then wishes his son a happy birthday and waves to him. There were many more such moments, but it is ultimately pointless to list them all. Suffice it to say that this was a concert that covered all the bases and was above all immensely entertaining. It was ample proof that several things: that commercial successful music can still be artistically viable, that Crowded House have much more to offer than their.detractars would have you believe, and they they will be around for quite some time to come.

The Blazersare a basic rockand bandrwithbasicguitara





Their rewards for victory are having a video single and a four-song EP produced by industry professionals and distributed by a major record label. In-addition, the winning band also is to be promoted through a series of public relations activities, including the 1991 Juno festivities.

Hit me with your bestshot. John Derringer hosted the night’s extravaganza, while MuchMusic taped it to be aired tonight (Sept. 27). On the card were such acts as The Jeff HeaIey Band, Colin James, Lee Aaron, Glen State (they were also the judges), and of course, the three finalists in the competition. .



The festivities were kicked off by Lee Aaron, performing a couple of songs off her latest aIbum, including one of my favourites, “Some Girls Do.” After a couple of beer commercials, and a few videos, it was time for Western Canada to show their stuff. Enter stage left, The Blazers.

Toronto’s Concert Hall was the meeting place for three of Canada’s most dynamic regional rock bands. Each was hoping to obtain national recognition, and major prizes at Molson Canadian Rocks Showdown ‘91.




The Blazers were the band representing Western Canada. They hail from Piulot Butte, Saskatchewan. Toronto’s Rita Chiarelli hefd Ontario’s torch, and Rogues GaIIery, from St. Johns, Newfoundland, emerged triumphant in the Quebec/ Eastern Ontario region.

With this experience, and her resounding voice (similar to Melissa Ethridge), Rita’s blues-rock songs were a hit, not only with the partisan Toronto crowd but also with the celebrity judges. GIen State entertained while the next band, Rogues Gallery, set up. Rogues Gallery have toured Eastern Canada extensively, and tirrently have their single “It’s too Late” holding the number-one spot on St. John’s radio stations. Of the three bands, Rogues Gallery definitely had the most entertaining stage performance. It was plain to see that this band had been together for a long while, and have done an extensive tour of the bar scene. In the end, it was a teary-eyed Rita Chiarelli that stood on the stage for a second time to receive the award from Derringer. With the awards ceremonies over, Jeff HeaIey bid a fond adieu to the

Schrader’s film is set in the present, but because it’s a meditation on dep. ravity, it has roots in the haunting tradition of privileged figures like CaIigula, the Marquis de Sade, and Bluebeard ‘(who was actually a sexmurderer of young boys). It doesn’t feel torn from today’s headlines. At the beginning of the film, a British couple, Mary (Natasha evasions.

Now can you hear the ocean? However,* Mary and Colin also experience renewed sexual energy after meeting this odd pair. It is to Schrader’s credit (and that of production designer Gianni Quaranta, cinematographer Dante Spinotti, and David Lynch composer Angelo Badalamenti) that we see Robert cast his. I spell on the British tourists wrthout cinematic .overstateqent or self-conscious devices. Also important are the skills of the watchable four stars; they don’t make Pinter’s

lines “Pinteresque”, and they convey all that hypnotic mystery as straightforwardly as possible. The Comfort of Strange isn’t extraorclinarily profound, but it is intelligent and proficient, and spectacularly sinister.. It’s a slick, psychological creepshow. . Playing at the hhcess 27-29.
