Tomorrow may belong to Chartier and the history books, but last Saturday belonged to the offensive starson the purple side of the stats sheet. UWO amassed 426 net yards, despite losing last season's rushing champ Tim Tindalein thethirdquarter. Tindale broke hisright leg and will miss the rest of the season.

For Chartier, Saturday was the penqltimate day for the history books, despite the team's disappointment. He ran for 112 yards on 22 rushes to pull into a tie with Andy Cecchinias the OUAA's leading career rusher with 3,061 yards. Cecohini played for the Wilfrid LaurierGoldenHawksfrom 1987 to 1991.

The backfield tandem of Matt Dickieand JaysonGriffithsfilled in brilliantly for the injured Hec Crightontrophy wiMer,combining for 132 yards on the ground. Meanwhile, quarterback John LeClair found little resistance through the air: 18-31 for 262yards. Slotback Mike Clawson and wide receiver Nigel Levy were the primary benefactors of the Warrior secondary's generosity, with five and six catches for 90 and 83 yards respectively. Turnovers, previously a specialtyof the Waterloo "D", were rare as the secondary failed to snare

though. Waterloo's opening drive was an exercise in dominance. Chattier gained all but two plays worth of the necessary yardage, the only exceptions being an eight-yard Bennet run and a facernask penalty against the Mustangs. Up 7-0, Waterloo applied enough defensivepressure to rattle Western's normally potent offence, keeping them in their own territory for the @st half. Western's best first-half opportunity came late in thesecond quarter while scrimmagingfrom its own 52-yard line. LeClair passed deeptwicqbadly overthrowingfirst h v y and then Clawson, who was wide open. Everyone in the stadium knew at half-time that the 7-0 shut-out against the 'Stang offence was too good to be true, but no one could guess how quickly the tide would turn against Waterloo. Rookie Warrior wide-out Adrian Thorne, acting as a kick returner for the first time this year, received a Frank Jagas offering to

open the second half. After a 26yard return, a Western helmet popped the ball h s e as T h q e was being tackled and Western recovered thefumble at Waterloo's 42-yardliiThe 'Stangshad finally found a way to scrimmage in Waterloo territory. Clawson then took over with two catches, 27 and 21 yards, to set up a two-yard TindaleTD run to tie the game at 7-7,231 into the thirdquarter.

Waterlooheld on to theensuing kick-off and moved 24 yards to Westem's42-yard line before failing to convert a third-and-inches play. This, for the Warriors, was the turning point. The Mustangs used a brilliantfake punt play to moveinto field-goal range before missing a 40-yard attempt to score a point and take the lead, 8-7. Western soon got the ball back by picking off a second-and-19 k n e t pass to Chartier deep in the UW zone; this allowed the 'Stangs to set up shop at the 29-yard line.

Wqstern added the icing with 14 ticks left as a 52-yard free-kick run-back set upa W e touchdown for the final 23-7 margin.

Run for the .R.O.O.F. by Nuncy Huckett _ . m- I -.specrar to lmprrnt

Once again, students of the University of St. Jerome’s College, federated with the University of Waterloo, are preparing to kick off their annual Charity Run weekend. For the past 16 years, students have organized the event each fall to assist local Kitchener-Waterloo charities by raising both public awareness and much needed funding. The event began in 1974 when two St. Jerome’s students decided to make a definite contribution to the Kitchener-Waterloo area. The weekend of events allows the students of the University to show appreciation to the community which hosts them for much of the year. In the past 16 years, the Charity Run has raised over $75,000 to aid

numerous local chari ties* Thecharitable organization selected this year is R.O.O.F., an acronym for Reaching Our Outdoor Friends, a charity that works to assist street kids in the K-W area by providing counselling, guidance, and hot meals. Proposals also exist for construction of a residence type centre. Steering committee chairs Lorrie Matthews, representing St.Jerome’s College; Tom Sandor, representing the Men’s Reiidence of St-Jerome’s; and Paula Petsche, of the Women’s Residence of Notre Dame College are faced with an additional challenge this year as the Charity Run weekend has been moved up a month from its traditional November date. This year’s activities are scheduled for the weekend of October 2,3 and 4 with a raffle and pub to be held the first weekend in November commemorating the 16th Anniversary

of the event. The annual relay has also been slightly modified. While it will continue to be free of the typical pledge per kilome tre, corporate sponsorship is now being sought for the 1,600-km relay. Sponsors interested in helping R.O.0.F are being asked to contact Ms. Matthews at 746 6456. Others wishmg to run in the continuous 4%hour relay or become involved in the carnival day, fundraising Bar-B-Que, penny raffle, bake sale, or coffee house are most welcome to contact Paula Petsche at 725-8054 for more information. Please drop by St. Jerome’s campusOctober 2-4 to get involved! You’ll haveloads of fun and make a difference in the lives of many of our community’s young people.

On Wednesday, September 23, women from all engineering departments at the University of Waterloo gathered in the Davis Centre for an informal wine and cheese party. Organized by the women in engineering commit tee, the purpose was to provide an opportunity for females enrolled in engineering to network with one another and to begin a new mentor program. “It’s generally a program to help the first-years get their feet wet and their enthusiasm sparked,” says June Lowe of the Engineering Undergrad Office, a member of the Committee. The program is one of many ideas initiated by the committee aimed at cre- ating a more welcome environmen t for w 0 m e n within engineering. It-is the beginning of a support syskm for female engineering studentsin which first-year students are paired with upper-year or graduate students. The upper-year students will offer guidance and encouragement to their counterparts. Lowe says that “mentors and their mentees” may get together for lunches or talk on the telephone a few times a week to share experiences. It is aimed at helping first-year students through the turbulent and difficult time of adjusting to engineering life. “Often, first-year women are pressured to fit in as ‘one of the guys,’ and this does not need to be

the case,” said one upper-year student at the meeting. Women curGntly comprise 17.7 per cent of the engineering faculty and are often faced with many challenging situations due to their minority status. Not surprisingly, some women students have a difficult time feeling welcome in such a male-dominated discipline. Every day they deal with incidents such as sexual harrassment. The committee was formed to deal precisely with these problems. The committee is presently in the planning stages of developing aneduca tional program for students entering their first year in engineering. The program will outline the law regarding sexual harrassment and define just what is acceptable behaviour from both fac4~ and stude&. T h e committee hopes to have the program in o-per&ion by next September. The women in engineering commit tee has received $9,000 in funding from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities, which has been matched by UW for a total of $18,000. While the Committee hopes it will encourage the trend of increased female enrollment in engineering, it has ambitions in other areas also. It hopes to curb other forms of discrimination such as thoseof race or religion. They would also like to see more gender inclusive language in textbooks. “Our mandate is really to make life better for our students,” coneluded June Lowe.

Environmental professorship announced by Ken Bryson Imprint stuff

The University of Waterloo, in conjunctionwithCanadaTrustCorporation, announced a major environmental initiative on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

Providing the details at a press c o n f e r e n c e i n t h e i r downtown Kitchener offices, Canada Trust revealed its plans to donate $1 million to Campaign Waterloo, UW’s-current fund-raising drive. The $1 million will primarily be used to fund the newly created WaI ter Bean Visiting Professorship in the Environment, also announced

Tuesday. The new professorship will be filled by top international research professors to enhance existing environmental research and teaching at UW. “The University of Waterloo is widely recognized for its approach to environmental research, teaching and in the way itself is managed,” said UW president Doug

Wright. Named after the former president of Waterloo Trust, which merged with Canada Trust in 1968, the Walter Bean Professorship recognizes Bean’s contributions to the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Bean chaired the Kitchener Urban Renewal Committee for 11 years and

helped kick off development of the Conestoga Expressway. “Nothing is more important than the environment,” said Bean. “It is hoped that this new professorship will lead to effective and permanent soltitions to some of our most pressing environmental problems.” UW established Canada’s first faculty of environmental studies in 1969, and is the site for the Waterloo

Centre for Groundwater Research, one 0f QrGario’s Centres of Excei-

lence.

The new professorship will enable W V to invite outstanding leaders in a variety of environmental fields. Each faculty will have the opportunity to apply for the fund-

ing each year, ensuring that a wide selction of areas will benefit. The students that will gain from the professorship will vary according to which faculty wins the bid for funding. Each year, then, new students, both Graduate and Undergraduate, will be given the opportunity to benefit from the professorship and the funding which accompanies it. The holder of the professorship will teach and develop programs t‘ur students acwss tlw university; collaborate with faculty members and sh~dents in the cnvironmental programs and activities in all facultius, as well ;fs stlmuMe and develop research; and t:nco!.!rage creative research with the IXP

tential for development and use by business and industry. Although it is too early to be sure of what the visiting professors will be doing, the general impgct of the professorship will be to greatly strengthen UW’s reputation as a Aeader in environmental development and research, according toDon Livingston, UW’s Director of De-

velopment. W h i l e U W w i l l not see the e n tire $1 million endowment fm five . years, Livingston is optimistic as to the immediate benefits to the Universitv. “WC should begin to see the benefits as early as the next academic year,” he said.

courses, they turn into a waste of time; he used history as an example, as he is personally interested& it. He said that people who think history is simply learning dates and names are not thinking historically. He realizes that history is about change and to correctly use this knowledge one has to understand how change has occurred in the past and how this will affect the future. Starting his majo; points, he stressed the importance of looking through the eyes of others when looking at the world, as this helps to

Engineering. . . gathering and transmitting experience broaden your ways of thinking. As well, amassing and benefitting from the experience of others was cited as an important step in exploring all possible solutions to a problem. To bring the talk into an engineering perspective, he described experience as being the heart of engineering; and the whole engineering experience as one of gathering and transmitting experience. But he also warned about the danger of relying on a narrow field of experience without searching out experience. m other fields wh;h mayAhelp to find a solution. Ball then gave a few examples of how getting good marks in university does not guarantee success; the first involved a scholarship fund for the law society. The society felt it could not grant the scholarship and after much publicity they had to cancel the fund and return the money. The reasbn for this was that the scholarship was to be given tothe student who came closest to failing but just squeaked through.

The person who set up the fund believed that marks had little relationship to how well the person would function as an lawyer. Recently his point was supported by the president of the law society, who has said that his school is not producing the types of lawyers it should, and that the system will have to be looked at. The second example involved a company and their changing hiring procedures. Ten years ago, the company would automatically just blindly take the students with the highest marks, but now a lot of these engineers are receiving not only counselling but, in some cases, severance pay. The reason is that the style of problem solving has gone from an individual to a group process. Now, prospective engineers have intensive interviews to study how they respect people who don’t hold degrees, what they feel they can learn from these people, how they feel towards ethnic groups, and other such questions to determine how they work with other people. As the president of the company said, the “classical nerd engineers” of the past simply cannot cope with the new work environment. Ball stressed that engineering schools have traditionally set out to train people in a way that they legally have enough education to function in engineering careers, but the other major aspect of engineering, to produce people who can better serve society, has not been properly emphasized. He told the gathered crowd to try to see what they can get out of their education which will make them more likely to succeed in their jobs and in society in general. Overall, it was an enjoyable talk which will hopefully achieve its goal of having people think about what they want out of the education they are paying for. The second lecture in the series will feature Dr. Abbyann Lynch talking about Ethics in Engineering, next Tuesday October 6 in Arts Lecture Hall 113.

A new Soace lJniversi@?

Count down debated at York

byjeff Warner hnpdnt staff On Thursday, September 24, proceedings at a dedication ceremony for a new building at York University were interrupted by demonstrators. Once again, the opponents of the proposed Intemational Space University-(ISU) voiced their many objections, pointing out what it sees as the dangers of allowing it to be located at York. Centred out of Cambridge, Massachusetts, the International Space University is still a vague, conceptual entity. It w a s formed i n the mid-1980s by Robert R i c h a r d s , Todd Hawley, and P e t e r D i a m a n d i s , w h o a l s o f o u n d e d Students for the Exploration of Space. Since 1987, the ISU has held s u m m e r s e s s i o n s at v a r i o u s u n i v e r sities around the world, including York, wherein between 100 and 200 graduate-level students partake i n “space studies. ” These include nine d i f f e r e n t d i s c i p l i n e s , r a n g i n g f?om the legal to the chemical issues of space exploration. Those who attended the ten-weekcourse received a certificate of completion, and were often granted academic credit by their home universities. The ISU has, however, always looked for a “home,” a permanent campus for its graduate studies. In 1991, it solicited offers for locations. York University submitted a bid in conjunction with the Ontario Government inFebruary, 1492. Six other universities, including one in Montreal, had also submitted bids. Twenty-one universities asked to be home to affiliated colleges, where more specialized training and research would take place. Last August, Y o r k , a l o n g w i t h Strasbourg, France, and Kitakyushi, Japan, made it to the short list. The announcement, made in Washington, will be followed by a final decision in January. There is considerable opposition to the ISU, however. The SOS. Network, a Toronto-based array of special-interest groups, has organized press releases, rallies, and demonstrations against the ISU. They are especially against it locating itself at York. Their reasons for opposing the bid stem from a variety of concerns. The primary one is military research -- there is a great deal of anxiety over the amount of financial backi n g that the ISU has received f r o m military agencies and contractors. The ISU hopes to become a chartered, private, university, something new to Ontario and something resisted by SOS. Akin to that, the ISU will have extremely high tuition fees ($25,000 a year), and both the provincial and federal governments have pledged large sums of money to supporting it. The military research issue is hptly contested, however, by cofounder Richards. While he does not deny that there may be “military aspects” to the research, the allegation that it would carry out top-secret, high-level weapon studies is “laughable . . . nothing could be farther from the truth.” “ [ T h e S . O . S . N&work is] beating up on an institution . . . with the most peaceful goals on the planet. We’re founded on the belief of peaceful exploration of space,” he countered. He also pointed to the ISU’s charter, which expressly forbids any research by “student, staff, or faculty,” that is not for the peaceful exploration of space and the “overall

benefit of mankind.”

Any research done at the ISU would be publishable, with all financial records open to public ins p e c t i o n , R i c h a r d s coiitinued.

“You might as well accuse Greenpeace of secretly being antienvironmental.” Military applica tionsire a large part of any form of space research. The only agencies that are willing to produce the enormous capital outlays needed for the long-term studies are military agencies and they traditionally have always been in close contact with centres conducting investigations in this area. Not all military research is, however, concerned solely with death and destruction: radar, sonar and weather satellites are all results

“You mi@it us well

accuse Greenpeuce of secretly being antienvironmental. ‘I of this type of research. Rikk Salamat, the director of S,O.S. and the coordinator of Earthroots, an environmental group that challenges the ISU, refuted t h o s e claims. “We just have to take them on their word . . . and I’m not going to take that;” he stated in reply. “They say that it has to be publishable, but that’s a crock of shit. . s they’ll have the freedom to do whatever they want.” “[The ISU] is here to develop a cadre of elites for military space exploration and exploitation,” claimed Nick Marachese, a memb e r o f t h e Y o r k F e d e r a t i o n o f Students and of the Members of York Community Concerned About the Future of York. “What’s appalling is why decides *what kind of research gets done.” Marachesepointed to the funding the KU gets from military contractors such as McDonald Douglas, Boeing, and Spar Aerospace, and from the U.S. Navy, NASA, and the Canadian Department of National D e f e n s e . T h i s f u n d i n g w i l l total over $1.5 million. Salamat and Marachese both

“We certainly hueen ‘t been consulting die ‘ public ” l

l

made references to the military research conducted at the York Centre for Excellence, and the “lack of controls” that exist to determine the kind of research that goes on. The Ontario government has so far spent over half a million doll a r s p u r s u i n g t h i s b i d , forming the basis for more opposition: cost. Both the F e d e r a l a n d P r o v i n c i a l g o v e r n ments have offered the JSU $11 million each in start up capital, and the O n t a r i o g o v e r n m e n t h a s pledged another $3.5 million per year in support. Such spending, to people such as Marache’se and Salamat, is unacceptable. Marachese made references to a cost-benefit study allegedly conducted by the Ontario government, w h i c h s h o w e d t h a t the I S U w o u l d not have the economic benefits to justify its cost. The stlldy, “leaked” to the S.O.S. Network, showed benefits to the local aerospace industry of $15 million and combined provincial and federal government expenses of $81 million. That money, Marachese continued, could and should be used in other areas where it would have a greater impact, dollar-for-dollar. “They haven’t justified this project,” Salamat said. The money

“is not b e i n g r e d i s t r i b u t e d p r o p erly.” The Ministry of Colleges and Universities, however, does not know about the study. “I have not seen the [cost-benefit] study,” Bensonstated.“I’msurethatif there is a study it . . is not here.” Another major issue of contention is the ambiguity concerning the proposed relationship between York and ISU. Co-founder Richards wants the ISU to eventually become a full-fledged, autonomous university, open to students around the world and capable of granting degrees on its own. Initially, however, it will rely on York to grant its degrees, effectually, being an affiliated college. The problem lies in the ISU’s desire to be a private university. Currently all universities in Ontario are public -- they receive funding from the government and are accountable to it. Marachese and Salamat both see the creation of a private university in Ontario as a dangerous precedent: the establishment of a corporate, elitist, university unaccountable to the public. That isnot what theISU*wishes to be, however, according to Richards. The ISU would be “the ultimate public university,‘: with students “from all nations, all corners” and no discrimination, including economic. Those that would be unable to afford the $25,ooO tuition would be matched to scholarships and bursaries “where possible.” The Federal government has also pledged to pay $23,000 of any Canadian student’s tuition through scholarships. The Ministry of Colleges and Universities has no plans for the creation of a private university in Ontario. Their proposal is for the ISU to be under York’s jurisdiction and control. They are only dealing with York, and as far as they are concerned the relationship between York and the ISU would be the same as it is here at Waterloo between the UniversityandStJerome’sCollege. For theISU tobeprivatewould be “very significant,” according to Benson. However, he repeated that “it is not a free standing university . . . we’re not prepared to allow a new degree-granting university right now.” Opponents of ISU, however, are not convinced that it will remain under York’s jurisdiction. They question the bid’s offer of granting the ISU’s professors automatic adjunct status, which would give them voting rights in their departments. And they have grave concernsabout theapparentsecrecy of the project. “There’s been no c o n s u l t a t i o n on this,” Marachese stated, claiming that when the York Senate requested a copy of the bid p r o p o s a l in May, they were refused. Representatives of the York Senate and the York administration were unavailable to c o m m e n t o n that allegation, Susan Mann, the York President, was also unavailable. “Even some of the Vice-Presibents didn’t know,” he continued, fi [ this was an] administrative dictate . . . the Senate was never consulted about it.” Salamat demands to know “why this whole thing is done in secrecy, ” and refers to the widespread protest from women’s, env i r o n m e n t a l , a n d labour g r o u p s t o the bid as proof that there is something seriously wrong with it. Marachese claimed that his g r o u p , and the public at large, did not know about the bid until it was leaked. He later referred to the copies of the bid proposal and costbenefit study needing to be “stoIen”asevidenceofthegovernment’s l

refusal to be up front with information. “Wearenotawareofanyinformation b e i n g w i t h h e l d , ” r e s p o n d e d Benson to this ‘allegation. Both the Ontario Federation of Students and the Canadian Federationofstudents havepubliclystated their opposition to the project, with the CFS calling for a public inquiry into the affair. Nikki Gershbain, the York Federation of Students president, was unwilling to answer questions, though the YFS has come out against the bid. The public outcry is unlikely to have a major effect on the final decision, to be made by a committee at the ISU. The criteria, according to R i c h a r d s , will be the level of academic support the university can p r o v i d e , the intema tional accessibility of the location, such as proximity to international airports, and

the financial feasibility of the location. While the ISU will not locate at York if, as the S.O.S. Network claims, four million people oppose it, public opinion is not a real factor. The protests are a problem for York and the ISU to work out, as far 3s the government is concerned. “Wecertainlyhaven’t beenconsulting the public . . . . [this bid] is one of a thousand things going on. ISU and York were the appropriate places for consultation;” Benson stated. He justified the Ministry’s attitude by the number of capital ventures it is i n v o l v e d i n , and the impossibility that public opinion be solicited on every issue. To the government this was just one more project, no different from the rest. “If there isn’t support we’re not going to force the issue,” Benson concltided.

Did Columbus Walk?

500th WaIkFa4hon Ctwnters’-“Discovery” fmm the Centre

It is not often that a group has a 500th Walk-A-Thon, but that is what i s h a p p e n i n g on S u n d a y Ckt o b e r 11,192 i n K i t c h e n e r . T h a t i s w h e n the p u b l i c i s i n v i t e d t o par-

churches, scouting organizations, and clubs, as well as other local groups are expected to participate in the Walk-A-Then. Half of all donations will be split between the White Owl Native Ancestry AssoCiationandtheLatin AmericanSupport Group of the Kitchener-Waterloo Area. Pledge forms are available at the Global Community Centre (8% 91 King Street North, Waterloo), the Weejeendimin Native Resource Centre (42 College Avenue, K i t c h e n e r ) , and from the W a t e r l o o Public Interest R e s e a r c h Group at the University of Waterloo. For furt h e r i n f o r m a t i o n c a l l 744~4090. The Walk-A-Thon route has s i g n i f i c a n c e i n l o c a l a b o r i g i n a l histo;y. According to local historian

parking lot at the Schneider Avenue entrance, proceed down Schneider to Mill Street, to Ottawa Street,thenovertoKingStreet.CJnce on King, the walkers will go along King to Queen, turning south on Queen, returning to Victoria Park. The six kilometre walk is expected to take a couple of hours to comple te. At 5 p.m. at Victoria Park, there will be a ceremonial unveiling of a plaque in recognition of local native history, and of the contributions made b y F i r s t N a t i o n s p e o p l e in the area. Individuals participa ting in the Walk-A-Than w i l l h a v e the opportunityto donate up to 50 per cent of monies raised to their favourite nonprofit organization. Schools,

Reg Good, not many area residents seem aware of the history connected with the area east of Victoria Park. For hundreds of years the Kitchener was used as a Spring and Fall gathering place for the area Mississauga. Elizabeth Miller of the organizing committee explains the reasoning behind the event’s date. “The Walk-A-Thon is being held on Sunday the 1 Ith because we want not only to counter the notions of Columbus ‘Discovery’ celebrations on the 12th of October, but we want to celebrate 500 years o f i n d i g e n o u s s u r v i v a l a n d resistante,” Miller says. “What better time for reflection on the issues facing native peoples than on a Walk-AThon of historical sites?”

President, anyone? by Ekubeth Ruywn hprint stuff

The Presidential Nominating Committee has completed the first phase of its search for the fourth president of the University of Waterloo by producing a report that outlines the attributes considered desirable in candidates for the position. The report, published in the September 23 edition of the UW Guz&e, describes the internal and external challenges facing the next

president. *It also lists the background, experience, and person+ qualities sought after by the cornmittee. The committee consulted with various members of the UW commu&y (president, vice-president, facultyasso&tion,staffassociation, deans, and church college heads) and theoffcampus community (lc+ cal mayors, leaders of nearby educational institutions, and senior business leade&) to come up with the views expressed in the report. ,These views are “representative of those views which werecommonly

News in Brief A University of Waterloo professor has been named to receive the Alfred Bader Award in Organic Chemistry for 1993. The award for Prof. Victor Snieckus of the chemistry department is “a mark of distinction and recognition to a scientist for excellence in research in organic chemistry carried out in Canada.” The program is administered by the Canadian Society for ChemistrY* Snieckus will receive the award, which includes an honorarium of $3,000 and a scroll, at the annual meeting of the society in Sherbrooke, Que. in May. The award is named after Alfred Bader who arrived in Canada from Germany as a refugee during the Second World War. Me built the world’s largest supplier of fine chemicals, the Aldrich Chemical Co., now merged with Sigma and known as Sigma-Aldrich.

Renison College and Conrad Grebel$ollege - both affiliated with the University of Waterloo - have officially opened new facilities to improve services for their students. At Renison, an addition linked to the men’s residence has been built to house a large dining room and kitchen. The college chapel has been relocated to the addition. At Conrad Grebel, the first stage of a three-stage construction project for new and renovated facilities has been completed. me most striking feature is a new 5,000-square-foot terrace overlooking Laurel Lake. Below the terrace is a spacious student lounge and games room. In addition, there is a medium-sized classroom.

Friday, October 2, 1992

by Peter Brown Was it merely a coincidence, or did anyone else who frequents the centre of this campus feel a bit cramped this week? The lmaginus poster sale in the Campus Centre great hall is a more reliable herald of autumn than falling leaves and shitty weather. And now we have an entirely new entry in our Farmer‘s A l m a n a c i n t h e f o r m o f C a m p u s best. I had almost forgotten about the imminent arrival of lmaginus after being b l u d g e o n e d by the descendence of the University of Waterloo’s sales staff during the previous week. Oh,.that’s right, I have been m e a n i n g t o d r o p 6 0 b u c k s dn a new r u g b y shim Thank you, UW, for placing a hundredsof-square-feet reminder right in my path. I suppose everyone wants to get a piece of s t u d e n t s w h o have j u s t g o t t h e i r OSAP a n d s t i l l h a v e b i g a n d c h u n k y b a n k accounts. But, really, how many posters of lames Dean does one campus need? Then we havetheautumn fair/carnival atmosphere of Campus Fest, an extravaganza of attractive tents and free stuff. An hprint staffer exclaimed to me that a visit to the tent city had provided her with enough toiletry items to last a month. So what’s my beef, dear reader? Why have I directed my baleful gaze toward funloving corporations, especially when most of them w a n t t o g i v e students so much free stuff? Do I begrudge undergrads toiletries? Not exactly. My point is that space which should be available for tie use and convenience of UW students has been transformed into a department store w i t h w h i c h t o p a d t h e coffers of the University and the Federation of Students. Merely negotiating the path between the Math building and the CC seemed like w a l k i n g t h r o u g h a h a l f - h o u r commercial program on late-night TV. The only difference ~yas that this did not occur on the TV a&waves, gut o n a u n i v e r s i t y c a m p u s ! U n l i k e m o s t lVstations, this university is heavily subsidized >y the taxpayers for the purpose of educating nembers of society and providing research in nany pure and applied areas. This university joes not exist to provide corporations with I ready-made market for their products in the ;Orm of students who must walk to and from :lasses a n d o t h e r a c t i v i t i e s t h r o u g h highnilk areas of campus. If this blitz of marketing were rappening j u s t b e f o r e a r e f e r e n d u m o n a xudent life building, a cynical editorial writer night think that the undergraduate populace s being reminded that there is so little space or student life on this campus. But the referendum was last year; the blanning ofthe approved building is underway, vith negotiations with furthergroups of profitnalcers no doubt also underway. What the University and the :ederation must remember about their blanning of said building is that the interests of he students who will pay for its construction se t h e f i r s t p r i o r i t y . O f c o u r s e , services rrovided by profit-making companies are going o show up in the student life building; that is nevitable and there is nothing wrong with it n fact, such private sector involvement will * necessary to pay the operating expenses In the building. But the powers that be must remember who is paying the bills. For society nd s t u d e n t s , through

Canada’s Constitution? CHILD’S PLAY! Like most people (I think), 1. d o n ’ t consider myself an expert i n t h e f i e l d o f politics. And, like most people, this fact has never before stopped me from offering my point of view. W i t h the referendum o n “ n a t i o n a l unity” less than a month away, itls h i g h time Imprint writers got their act together to propagate whatever opinions or facts we see as pertinent. The following is to whet your appetites -- m o r e n e x t w e e k . F i r e o n e ! Myself and approximately two other people on campus a r e p l a n n i n g t o v o t e “no” on October 26 of this year. What? A no to national unity? Why, queries the liberal-minded reader? Well, in fact it is a no to a whole range of proposals, all of which Quebec presumably has okayed. I’m all for national unity, but the upcoming vote, if a yes, will give the green light to a rather large number of . fundamental changes to Canadian political institutions (and therefore the (political) culture), which will have unforeseeable ramifications that will impact beyond the copper roofs in Ottawa. / The House of Commons will have to accommodate several dozen more Members of Parliament, the S e n a t e w i l l s h r i n k , w e will meet and consult w i t h e v e r y i n t e r e s t group in existence to decide which company gets the contract to clean the House of Commons’ kitchen. . . Check this out, from the C h a r l o t t e t o w n agreement: “The C o n s t i t u t i o n s h o u l d c o m m i t the federal government to meaningful consultation with the provinces before introducing legislation relating to equalization payments” (italics mine). No wonder some provinces want to see the more complex and meaningful version the lawyers are writing up.

been formed with the words should, would, rights, and ensure, in conjunction with all distinct groups of people. If I understand it correctly -- and it’s quite probable I don’t -- a yes vote will mean a double-E Senate, w i t h t h e m i s s i n g E b e i n g “effective.” If ai expenditure bill is defeated i n the Senate, for example, “it could be repassed by a majority vote in the House of Commons on a resolution.” But all this is just chaff, according to the federal g o v e r n m e n t . T h e y w o u l d h a v e us believe that the central issue is whether or not Quebec will still be in the Canadian federation b y C h r i s t m a s . I g r a n t y o u t h a t a l l these changes had t o s o m e h o w b e a p p r o v e d b y B o u r a s s a , but that doesn’t mean he wants all these proposals to b e c o m e r e a l i t y .

Here’s a different snapshot of thii well-painted picture. Take a s an example the Senate question. Do Canadians perceive a problem with the way it currently functions? Have we been marching in the streets demanding a “triple-E” Senate? Has the government paid attention to any of the things we have been marching for? Then I g u e s s y o u ’ r e n o t a m e m b e r of the spoiled g r o u p s in the federal f a m i l y . Could it be that this whole deal is little more than a p o w e r s t r u g g l e a m o n g the p o l i t i c a l l y p o w e r f u l , and that there’s little p o s i t i v e spin-off effects for most Canadians to anticipate? The issue of whether or not Quebec will somehow separate is so fraught with u n c o u n t a b l e r o a d b l o c k s a n d p r o b l e m s tha) it hardly deserves serious comment. . but I can’t help myself. First and foremost, in recognition that money makes the world go ‘round, one must look at the apparantly insurmountable financial obstacles to a true s e p a r a t i o n . Aq.an i n d e p e n d e n t c o u n t r y , Q u & z would first have to manufacture it’s own c u r r e n c y a n d , I s u p p o s e , s o m e h o w l

W i t h t h e i r n e w Q&bucks, they could then pay off their share of the federal d e b t w h i c h , c o n s i d e r i n g t h e y have 25 per cent of the country’s population, will not be a small sum, T h e y w o u l d a l s o have to guard against any latent imperialist u r g e s a m o n g t h e w o r l d p o w e r s a n d s o m e h o w prepare to d e f e n d t h e i r b o r d e r s . What s o v e r e i g n country doesn’t have some sort of army? Oh s i l l y m e - I forgot about the Sureth. A n d s p e a k i n g o f b o r d e r s , Quebec will in all likelihood become smaller after settling native Canadians’ rather substantial land claims with the province. Will the United States be knocking at Bourassa’s door on October 27, pleading a c h a n c e to negotiate a separate free-trade deal with them? I’ll bet t h e N A F T A w i l l b e pretty much worthless without the Quebec t r a d i n g b l o c . A n d the EEC just may collapse in economic ruin if a no vote turns

UP-

The ROC is fed up with the distinct p r o v i n c e i n t h e s a m e w a y a parent can be frustrated with a child. The parents know they eventually must ignore the whining to prevent the kid from becoming accustomed to having her every whim satisfied. This analogy isn’t used without a purpose. In a sense, Quebec is really not m u c h m o r e than 30 years o l d , h a v i n g b e e n born in my eyes with the Quiet Revolution. Prior to the 196Os, the province believed it was s t i l l agrarian-based and resisted industrialization and the church and state w e r e f a r f r o m s e p a r a t e d , w i t h the former having quasi-state powers and responsibilities. Their history is intriguing, and without a doubt makes them distinct, but their history in the Canadian federation leaves large and grave doubts about the validity of Quebec’s contitutional demands. Vote no to teach the child a lesson, and to let the Company know the parents have far more pressing matters on our minds.

I have spent almost a month at Waterloo now, and the only thing that I’m sure of is that I’m not sure of anything. My classes are driving me nutty, my first month at the paper has been one crazy experiment, I feel sick, and I’ve been threatened with disembowelment if I don’t call certain people at home. Everything is spinning in different directions. Welcome to Waterloo. H,OL@. Now I’m sitting here in the Imprint office, writing my first comment peice feature for the paper. I don’t know what they’re going to do with this. After all that’s happened in the last three weeks, and that is going to happen in the next three months, I’m not sure that I even really care. But I type here, anyways, because it’s something I enjoy. Contrary to popular belief, there is more to life than Math. Or Science, Or Engineering. Or whatever. Besides, typing this column is less egodamaging then getting a 5.5 out of 10 on an Algebra assignment. It’s a matter of fact; I like what I’m learning here at Waterloo, but I don’t know what I’m doing. I haven’t settled down yet. In Algebra. In Calculus. In Computer Science. In anything. I’m still trying to figure things out. Like I’m trying to figure out what happened to the sock that disappeared in the dryer not too long ago. E

The Sock Strikes Back Eventually, though, I did find that . missing sock. It reappeared a week later when I did my laundry again. Personally, I believe it entered some wierd, mysterious world wherb pi is an integer, where Math is understandable, where people keep

newspaper deadlines, and on and on. (Note: I DID NOT make an Engineer hack, regardless of tempation. ) Xt would seem in line with the rest of what goes on around here. To one Math Frosh, staring at the giagantic, powerful, academic institution

kr~own as the University of Waterloo, anything is possible, and nothing is under-

standable. No amount of Erosh Week Orientation can change the fact that this one math frosh is now with 30 thousand other people on this campus, doing their own thing,. and yet doing it for U W. I t ’ s scary. And, inspired by that reappearing sock, I can only hope that things will become clearer with time; or, at least, I will become more and more used to it. I guess it could be considered a part of growing up, though I wonder how many people actually thing of it on that level. It certainly isn’t the usual train of thought that most people have when they think of University. Assignments, Midterms and Exams usually rule the day. . Well, here’s the question for you. (For those of you who have read this far.) Where do you fit in at UW?

Letters to the Editor Imptint

I sure as anything don’t know where I fit in. I’ve had enough trouble adjusting to the fact that home is now 30&n away. I’m from Windsor, Ontario, and I’m proud of it. I have a whole sIew of family and friends who are back there, people that I miss dearly. It seems to be a rule of life; when you finally know the answers to some of the questions, the questions change. And I have no doubt th;lt when I learn the answers to the questions here, at Waterloo, the questions will change again. But, as a shared hope with many other first year students, I can only hope that, whatever the questions, the fears, the challenges; I will be able to see them through and prosper. There are people who support me as I support them; there are people who will give me help even if they do not know my name; all of this helps. Well, I’ve spent a month here at

Waterloo. Here’s to the next four years. Here’s to finding answers. But, please, no C&OH. jefry

Fair doesn’t enter intci it by jeffrey & Miller Imprint Staff After watching Tim Robbins in this fall’s critical darling, Bab R o b e r t s , I w a s s t r u c k , o n c e again, by the power a person can wield by effectively manipulating the popul a r media. F r o m t h e d a y s o f the f i r s t tele v i s e d N i x o n - Kennedy debates, stra tegis ts and politicos understood that a powerful television presence w a s a m a j o r , if n o t indispensable, asset to anyone seeking to hold public office. Nixon’s sweaty, jowly, shaking form, five-o’clock shadow, and glaring white shirt was a stark contrast to Kennedy’s boyish good looks, soft, neutral clothing, and winning smile. Both addressed the issues competently and confidently, b u t i t w a s K e n n e d y , i n t h e electorate’s eyes, who emerged victorious. “is this fair?“, iou ask, “That

looks and media savvy should so govern one’s chances to hold public office?” Fair doesn’t enter into it. The system has a w a y o f a p p l y i n g blind justice. While a winning number in the genetic crap-shoot is a tremendous asset, it by no means ensures a one-way ticket to power.

I find myself gravely afraid for the future of our neighbours to the south. Are they falling Tar a lying, jiving right-wing Republican bastard, or a lying, jiving left-wing Democrat weasel? Nice choices. Thanks for the big menu. Both Bush and Clinton (or, at least, their handlers) understand the basics of media manipulation.

The city sound seems distant but incessant. The busy comer of Bloor and Spa&a will not go away. I3y no means is this paradise, nor is it utopia. Likewise it is far from the beginnings of a revolution toward an ecological society. It is, though, a vision of an integration of town and country. A unity of diversity into an ecological wholeness. Such a vision hides easily within the primacy of economic society in our daily life. This economic society sees the natural world as mere “resources” w i t h w h i c h t o t r a n s f o r m i n t o “produe&“. It turns people into mere “human resources” rationalized in the “labour” p r o c e s s e s o f i t s i n d u s t r i e s , f a c t o r i e s , a n d G e n e r a t i o n X ‘* veal fattening pens”.

Epilogue I wish I could transplant some of this wilderness into the few public spaces of Toronto capable of providing the ground for public life. How about Nathan Phillips Square, where the mayor might be scandalized just enough to shock her out of her myopia. Law and Order are not the prescription for a city decaying from the inside out. An ecological city, supported by libertarian institutions (like face to face democratic neighbourhood assemblies) and in which citizens are re-invigorated by the freedom from lack of shelter and lack of food, and have the freedom to participate in public life, is the only way to affect change.

This is not a mere utopist vision and I make no apology for it if you think it is. To me, it is no worse a prescription than hiring more police officersindeed, it has more ethical meaning than June Rowland’s discouraging rhetoric.

AIDS Awareness’ Week ., October 5-12

‘I Enough Fear! EnOugh Ignorance! I’ by Isabel White imprint stuff

This Monday, October 5, marks the b e g i n n i n g o f AIDS A w a r e n e s s W e e k . W h y should you care ? According to World Health Organization (WHO) projections, by the year 2000 there will be 5 to 6 million AIDS cases globally, and 15 to 20 million people infected with the HIV v i r u s . If t h i s sounds scary, don’t worry - it is. It’s not just a problem in other parts o f t h e w o r l d . T h e Toronto Stczar r e p o r t e d i n May, 1990 that 19,900 Canadians aged 29 and under - 3665 of those in Toronto alone had the H I V v i r u s . A n d i t ’ s a p r e t t y d a m n safe bet that those numbers haven’t decreased in the past two years. The theme for this year’s AIDS Awareness Week is “Enough Fear, Enough Ignorance”. Groups such as ACCKWA (the AIDS Committee of Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, and Area) will be sponsoring special events throughout the week, directed at all s e g m e n t s o f the p o p u l a t i o n : children, high school and post-second&y students, AIDS/HIV infected and affected persons, drug users, bisexuals, lesbians, g a y s , r e l i g i o u s g r o u p s , p a r e n t s , homophobic adu2ts, the media, politicians, and everybody in between. : Last year’s events, also sponsored by the W a t e r l o o R e g i o n a l Health Unit AIDS P r o g r a m , included H o l l y N e a r i n c o n c e r t a t the Humanities Theatre, lunch-time lectures at the K-W Hospital, poster/pamphlet displays at various hospitals, and an art exhibition and auction. We all know by now that AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency. Syndrome. But fewer people know what HIV stands for, or even what it does. The H u m a n Immunodeficiency Virus, according to a GLLOW (Gay and Lesbian Liberation of Waterloo) leaflet, “disarms the immune s y s t e m ” , l e a v i n g it more vulnerable to infection. The same leaflet describes some possible symptoms of HIV infections: chronic fatigue, fevers, chills and night s w e a t s , l o s s o f m o r e t h a n 1 0 % of b o d y weight, swollen lymph glands, pink, purple,

Use a latex condom and spermicidal foam (see “Condom Hinti”). F o r o r a l s e x o n a woman, use a dental dam (the Women’s Centre has detailed i n s t r u c t i o n s o n h o w t o use one).

How to use.a condom: 1. Buy latex condoms and check expiry date on box. Open the package carefully to avoid tearing

2. Put the condom on erect penis or sex toy. Pinch the tip , of the condom to remove the air and to leave room for the sperm.

3. Unroll the condom right down to the base of the erect penis or sex toy.

4. Use a water-based lubricant (KY jelly or Muko). DO NOT used oilbased lubricant (such as petroleum jelly), this will break the condom.

5.-. After the man cums, hold the base of the condom firmly and pull out the penis while it is still hard, avoid spilling sperm. Use condoms only once.

Making a latex barrier: & 1. Unlubricated condoms are easiest to work with, and they taste better too. Open the package carefully to avoid tearing 2. Holding the rolled up condom on a flat surface, cut off the tip, then cut from the centre to the outside edge using scissors.

Hebful hints on condoms and foam: 1. Don’t use natural fibre condoms. Latex is better.

.

2. Check the expiry dates when you’re buying condoms and foam; they can go bad. Imprint’s features section is looking for submissions from the student body. This means YOU! We’re looking for articles on anything out there that’s o f interest t o a n y b o d y . Make it wild and w a c k y or make it serious, we’ll take a look at it. lt doesn’t even have to be an essay on the “Mating H a b i t s o f Prarie D o g s ” we’ll look.at cartoons, poetry, stories, whatever.

3; Don’t keep condoms in your back pocket or wallet, or anywhere hot -- fumes and friction can weaken them. Try a new alternative, such as condom jewellery. 4. Oil-based products like petroleum jelly can damage the latex. Use a water-based lubricant instead. 5. Don’t reuse condoms. 6. Use a contrackptive foam containing the spermicide nonoxynol-9. It helps kill the AIDS virus in case of condom breakage. However, dcdt use foam done (aargh!)Sources:

The Pittsburgh course went through the city, from the Heinz factory to Three Rivers Stadium. Having the finish line at the stadium created a fantastic atmosphere, as hundreds of people watched the regatta first and went to the ball game across the street later. The great weather and an unusually strong current broke course records in almost every event. A new record holder is UW’s Women’s Double, which broke the previous best by over two minutes. They were, of course first, although they werealsotheonlyboatintheirevent, a minor detail.

Cumby happily waved goodbye to four crews over the course, and only the wake of an overeager boat created any serious obstacle. Tomorrow marks the first OUAA/OWAA sprint race, to be held on Long Pond, Toronto Island. The race will cover 1,200 meters, shorter than the standard 2,000,and is an exciting one for athletes and spectators alike. Provided the Waterloo boats stay out of the dreaded lane six, no problems should result.

Thank you to the umpires who contributed their time. We couldn’t have done it without you. Introducing m . The UW Juggling Club l

by David Stanley Vice-President Have you ever picked up three balls and tried to juggle? You have! Well what about three flaming torches? Not as easy as it looks, is it? UW now has a wide selection of hearty souls who do this sort of thing for fun! Yes, the fall of 1992 marks the official beginning of the University of Waterloo Juggling Club. The club was unofficially started in January of this year by its current president, Sean Finucane and has been growing steadily ever since. In fact, the club now has over 30 members. While this may not seem like a lot, just consider what percentage of our population likes to play an obscure form of catch with three chain saws in their spare

time. Actually, none of the club members have been that ambitious (so far) but they do spurt a wide array of talents includingtheability to juggle: bean bags, balls, clubs, flaming torches, rings, ping pong balls, and chickens (rubber of coum). But you don’t have to be an expert juggler to join the club. In fact, you don’t even have to be able to juggle at all! Anyone who’s even thought about learning how to juggle is encouraged to come out and see what the club is all about. By the same token, all those experienced jugglers out there are welcome as well - you’ll probably beable to pick up a new trick or two or go on the field trip to a juggling convention in Indiana at the end of October. The UW jugglers gather every Wednesday afternoon in the Blue Activity Area of the PAC b e t w e e n 5 and 7 p.m. The cost of joining the club is only $10.00 (used to purchase equipment for the club) and everyone is welcome. If you would like any more information about the UW Juggling Club, feel free to contact president Sean Finucane (884-3473 or x6265) or vice-presidents David Stanley (886-2437) or Marcus Stemberg (725-6269) Fit Tip of #he week: AVOIDDEHYDIUjTION. Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue. Since caffeine is a diuretic that stimulates the body to excrete more fluids, watch your intake of caffeinated beverages. Get the water habit! And don’t forget to drink extra water to replace any fluids lost in physical activity.

Field hockey team learns lessons on grass by Cud Ferguson lmptm sportr After two weeks of intensive training, the Waterloo Athena field hockey team travelled to Guelph last weekend to play their first league games of the season. The teamlosttotheGryphonsandYork, but still found promise in its performance. The Athenas started well against Guelph, ball movement being facilitated by good communication. But momentary technical mistakes, a product of playing on grass rather than on artificial turf, enabled Guelph to break into the scoring circle time and time again. Defensive miscues by Waterloo gave the Gryphons several scoring opportunities, of which they took full advantage, for a final score of 5-o.

Inpreparationforthe&ternoon game, against York, coach Judy McCrae called a team meeting to determine how improvements could me made. Following the discussion, McCrae advised the team to “park” the disappointing moming and to focus on playing their best against the strong York team. TheYorkYeowomen,complete withfivejuniornationalteammembers, were, a daunting match, but the Athenas rose to the challenge. Waterloo used the field well, cutting to space and setting up passand-hit combinations which strove to advance the forward line. Man-to-man marking was m u c h i m p r o v e d defence in the circle was much stronger. Waterloo survived seven consecutive penalty comers, a York scoring specialty on turf.

Tough Weekend for Warri-orsocce,r

Badminton squad starts season at UWO The Warrior badminton team travels to London for its season opener this weekend at the University of Western Ontario. Returning headcoachJeffWhiteexpects&more successful season this year for both the Athenas and Warriors, after finishing a disappointing ninth and sixth place in their respective leagues last year. White is joined by newa&stantcoach&ianBiemann, a past national-level player with ph31ty of experien=. Although the Athenas lost last year’s most valuable player Hau Lee, coach White is very optimistic that the team will perform well. Veterans Marcie MacVicar, Joanne Henderson,andAngelaWanniappa agree the team is much more competitive this year+ ‘This is the best women’s team we’ve had in the three years I’ve played for Waterloo,” says &&Vicar. “With three returning veterans and five strong rookies, we should be able to improve our team standing considerably.” Athena hopefuls include firstyear civil engineering student Kristin Bobbie from Sault Ste. Marie, who fared well at last year’s Ontario High School (OFSAA) championships, and Joanna Buzek of Brantford. Also joining the Athena rookie squad are Kathleen Kolstern and Judy Dotten.

The Warrior side has &en totallyrevamped&cludingasurprise return by nationally-ranked Dan McIver,whomissedlastseasondue to a persistent ankle injury. McIver wfl lead the team of mostly rookies,including NevilleStringer,Kelly Slough Dan Frank, Nick Hoh, and Dan Jarvis. Veteran Quen Lee and last year’s MVP Cliff Tao are the only returning players. Lee, who in the past has made it as the third or fourth seed on the team, has been bumped down to seventh, “I don’t know where all these guys are coming from,” tiys Lee, “but they should help us get into the playoffs for sure.” Rookie Dan Frank of Ottawa, a first-year accounting student, placed fourth in the 1991 QFSAA doubles championships, held that year in Sault Ste. Marie, Coach White expects the Warriors to advance to the playoffs with an eventual fourth or fifth Ontario standing and he is using every coaching strategy there is. “In the past,practices havebeen too slack, not pumped enough,” says White. “Bria’n [Biemann] will do most of the dryland training, while I while coticentrate mostly on game strategy and mental training.” Together with the dynamic coaches White and Biemann, the team’s road trip to Western should be very prosperous.

Jmprint tports Thispastweekendsawthewaterloo Warrior SOccer team faced withthedifficultchallengeof aroad trip to Western and Windsor. Despite superb efforts from the players, the team garnered only one point with a tie and a loss. This gives them a l-2-2 rmord and share of fourth-place in the OUAA West division along with the Mustangs and the Guelph Gryphons. They are three points behind the division leading Brock Badgers and Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks. The long weekend began on Saturday, September 26 when the Warrior squad arrived in London eager to make ground beef out of the lowly Mustangs. The Waterloo players took it to them right from the beginning and it was not long before rookie sensationJason Chase was hacked down in front of the Western goal mouth, resulting in a Warrior free kick. UW’s Jason Pither pummelled the shot under the sprawling goalie for his second goal of the season, putting Waterloo ahead l-0. The game got physical after that, as the ‘Stangs tried to fight back. In the second half, rookie Warrior goalie Martin Ennis became the victim of a cheap flagrant foul and was forced to leave the game. Luck-

ily, the other haIf of the equally talented goalie duet, rookie Abdel Flummer, wti called in to’ guard the Warrior goal. However, Westem pushed on a fre kick found the headofanunmarkedMust.angwho headed home the goal, evening the score l-1.

Chase’s shot blistered past a helpless goaltender only to skim over the crossbar by inches. The London side heaved a sigh of relief as the final whistle blew to end the game in a l-1 tie. On Sunday, September 27, the Warriors descended on the University of Windsor for their battle

againstthenationallynumber-nineranked Lancers. To say that the refereewasappallingisanundeatatement. only 20 minutes into the game, a seemingly harmless tackle by Warrior rookie Chris BacHarett resulted ina red card, meaning that the Waterloo squad was forced to playtherestofthegameoneman short. The gallant Warriors fought against the odds with their ironclad defence and attacks up the left side by veteran Paul Knafele and rookie halfback Dan Oleskavich. Rick Bazarello and Alex Ada&i combined on the right side to balance the Warrior attack. With the magnificent goaltending of Abdel Plummer and the dominance of Sean Taggart, the game seemed headed toward a scoreless tie when the referee struck again. With less than 15 minutes left, he called a controversial penalty shot against Waterloo that was converted for a 1-O Windsor vie- 4 tory. The Warriors can hold their heads high, though, as they played a man short while withstanding incompetent refereeing. The Warriors look to rebound as they start a three-game home stand against the McMaster Marauders tomorrow at 3 p.m., the Guelph Gryphons next Thursday, October 8 at 8 p.m., and the Brock Badgers on Wednesday, October 14 at 4 p.m. Ali three games are at Colukbia F i e l d . -

More Ego than Talent Big, Bad & Groovy Tour Federation Hall

T h u r s d a y , S e p t e m b e r 24,1992 by Kenton Augerman

hnprint staff

When Bootsauce asked Sons of Freedom to accompany them on their cross-country Big, Bad & Groovy tour, they must have thought it was a good idea. They’re big fans of their Vancouver counterparts, as guitarist Sonny G r e e n w i c h J r . t o l d me last March: “Sons of Freedom are my favouxite Canadian band; they’re devastating!” I wonder if they still think it’s a good idea after being completely upstaged at Fed Hall Sept. 24. If they’re not regretting shooting themselves in the collective foot, they should be. While Bootsauce was predictable and overblown, Sons o f Freedom were superhuman, turning in what had tobe one of the finest sets of music ever. When I die, I hope I go to wherever Sons of Freedom are playing. (And I hope I have earplugs.) Unlike their last visit to campus when it took them 25 minutes to hit their stride, the Sons came out firing with “Alice Henderson” and continued to blast away for the duration. “The Criminal,” “Dead Dog on the Highway,” “Circle Circle,” “You’re No Good,” “Super Cool Wagon,” “Dreamgirl #l,” “USA Long Distance,” and “Call Me” - they were all performed and they were all fucking b r i l l i a n t . I t ’ s difficult even to pick a highlight because the Sons were amazing throughout. Don Harrison’s guitar w o r k d u r i n g “ D r e a m g i r l #l ” was noteworthy, however, as was Don Short’s d r u m m i n g o n “USA Long Distance.” All the while, lead singer Jim

(Another band, Pure, was scheduled t o appeared but cancelled because their vocalist had strep-throat). Bergmann is living a tortured existence s i n c e b e i n g d r o p p e d b y his record company. No longer able to afford backing musicians, he determinedly faced the masses anyway, armed with a lone electric guitar. He’s to be commended for making a go of it, but one can’t help but think of how prophetic the line “I’m a never-was,%red of being a has-been, a has-been .on the comeback trail” from his song “Bound for Vegas” has become. Bergmann focused primarily on his singles,which were seen in a new light

Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine The Phoenix Thedre, Toronto * September 23,1992 by Bernard Keormy lmpfint stuff Lights.

Years from now, when Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine have aimlessly drifted into the murky realm of obscurity, I will silently reflect back to the night of September 23, 1992, when I, Bernard Keamey, was privy to what can only be described as an outstanding light show. There were more lights than Pearson International, I tell ya. . In fact, to help perpetuate an airport atmosphere, prior to entering the facility, the Phoenix theatre’s friendly staff, brandishing hitech metal detectors, would scan every ticket-holding patron. Let’s just say that I am an ardent Spinal Tap fan, and the scene was rather embarrassing. So you may ask yourself, who is Carter, and just why did this sex machine travel to T.O. to see him? Carter USMcomprise of threemembers - Jim Bob, Fruitbat, (both on guitar and vocals) and a DAT machine (a busy little bumble bee orchestrating everything else).

Tired of waking up at all by Andy Koch Imprint Staff The first piece I did for Imprint arts was a review of a Change of Heart show at the lovely Albion Hotel in Gudph, back in the fall of 1988. The piece itself wasn’t particularly memorable, thanks to a couplewordprocessingscrew-ups, but the show was. In the four years since that show, Change of Heart have managed to get out two fantastic alb u m s ( S o a p b o x and Smile) and I’ve caught them live at least ten times. Suffice it to say that Change of Heart have become one of my fave bads, and arguably one of the best outfits playing in Canada. And furthemore, dear reader, you should be sure to catch one of their upcoming area shows (including the Albion tomorrow night and PM’S Grandson’s Place on Tuesday)* The last eight months has been a particularly exciting period in the annals of Change of Heart. Most .

important, was the release of the band’s fourth album Smile , a few months ago. Faced with the challenge of equalling 1990% riveting Soapbox, Smile (the third in the ‘5 trilogy” begun in 1987 with S~oz&iznce),theHearthavedefinitely outdone themselves by producing what will easily be one of the best Canuck releases of the rapidly aging year.

S t a r t i n g witha live rehearsal of the new album on New Year’s Eve at theRivoli, theHeart secured some choice opening slots for the likes of Blue Rodeo, Nick Cave, and Dutch hard&ore band the Ex. Probably their best gig of ‘92 was the their “10th Anniversary Freakshow” at

Ultrasound in the spring, in which they cranked out two mammoth sets of strong orieals. Yes, 10 years. It seems like a long time for a band to be slugging it out in the Canadian club scene. But even limited success has not come easy. for Change of Heart, in spite of much critical ballyhoo (like this), reaching the top of the Canadian campus radio charts, and marginal airplay on CBC, CFNY and Mu&Music. In fact, the new CD’s title track, and “video single” exemplifies the band’s questionable potential for surging into bigger markets. “Smile” combines a mid-tempo, psychedelic wash of sound, jangly guit&s,andflangedoutvocals,with a hard-core power-chord chorus. Yes, a lot of other bands are making it big using similar formulas, but Change of Heart tend to be all over the place musically and typically s h y a w a y f r o m a n y t h i n g approaching the typical four-minute rock song. On top of this, the Hearts’ evident lack of image and desire to *‘play the showbiz game” make

them unlikely contenders for a big breakthrough. Nevertheless, MCA has recently picked up SmiZe as one of several products it will be distributing nationally for indie label Cargo Records. And, hey, it’s hard not to be optimistic for these guys when other less-then-mainstream Canadian acts have been given mouthwatering record deals. 13 Engines, bk People, and the Rheostatics have all been signed quite recently, and even Change of Heart’s tour mates from last year, the Doughboys, were just snagged by A&M. Commercial success notwithstanding, Ian Blurton, Rob Taylor, Bernard Maiezza, Mike Armstrong, and Milchem’s replacement John Richardson will continue to play ~ music for music’s sake and they’ll enjoy almost every minute of it. So, see them live: Ian Blurton is one of the more exciting singer/’ guitarists playing rock ‘n’ roll and you’ll be supporting a fine bunch of lads that may someday gamer t h e reputation they deserve.

so what exactly is a “fumerist”? Any guesses? Here’s a clue: it isn’t a French expert on smoking. (Get it? Fumer? Je fume, t-u fumes, il/elle fume . . . ?) According to Kate Clinton, a *‘fume&t” is a feminist humorist. (No, it isn’t anoxymoron) And she should know. She’s one of ‘em.

Perhaps rt was mere, sheer coincidence, but Clinton started performing standup (actually, much of it is really “stand-with.” Let’s hear it for solidarity!) comedy routines ten years. ago, “the same year as that master of the oneliner, Ronald Reagan.” Starting out with Reagan has guaranteed her a wealth of material, as have other presidential hopefuls (and hopeless&.

Shriekback have been dithering about for the last eight years. While touring their unique, precious “Oil And Gold” Ip, they had the misfortune of sharing a bill with the then user-friendly Simple Minds. Close proximity to Jim Kerr, Minds vocaliit and all-around laughable character, resulted in Barry Andrews spouting pearls of wisdom like: “Kerr taught me there is no such thingas a cult band.. . there areonly successful and unsuccessful bands.” And so, the wonderful cult band Wriekback began to decay, releasirig “ B i g N i g h t Music” a half-arsed rehash of Oil’s more mediocre moments, sparkling here and there but generally tarnished. By the time “GQ Bang!” fumbled along the party was over, save perhaps for t h e c l o s i n g L?ust and a Shadow. Ignoring the erratic collection Lhzcing Years, Shriekback have seemingly come out of nowhere *with a stunner; Sacred City is as effortlessly beautiful as anything t h e y ’ v e d o n e . T h e r e ’ s n o mega-hit l i k e “Nemesis” or “Fish Below The Ice,” but “The Bastard Sons of Enoch,” a n d “ E v e r y F o r c e E v o l v e s a Form,” should definitely become dancefloorstaples (ouch!). From the first minute of “Signs” it’s obvious they’ve given up on trying to become megastars, and, if they keep on this shining path, mega they just .might become. Barry Adams’ whispery voice, his unorthodox song structures and penchant for seductive yet biting songs finds himself landing squarely in the 90’s, an act Shriekbacks’ contemporaries will

spend eight more years trying to figure out. Sacred City pulses with a life all it’s own. U2 would kill for a song like “(Open up your) Filthy Heart (to me).” Standing, 90’s style for truth and beauty, unashamed of the ugliness it protects and howling from across a decade, Shriekback recrlaims its throne. . ..a process that would be all the more complete were it not for the infuriating presence of two go-nowhere, do-nothing instrumentals: “Below,’ and “3 am,’ Tracks 6 and 9, (or the first and last songs on side b, cassette lovers,) had me rewinding to make sure that, yes those two

“songs” are really that bud . Words practically fail me: a sparse drum track, some “atmospheric” synthwank (actually synth-blah, it’s not stimulating enough to be wank,) and... that’s it! I can almost hear the Yr e c o r d c o m p a n y s a y i n g : “ G e e , t h i s great &song album is under 38 minute+.. this is the age of CD’s and bonus tracks, guys. Do you have a few songs, say ten minutes... no really, it can be, crap - well just throw it on anyway!,,

Wait a minute, I thought I read somewhere about a year or two ago that Sinead O’Connor had completely packed up her delicious voice and gone home. So how have I now come to hold in front of me h&r new album “am I not your girl?” It is a miracle. It is a gift from the gods. It is a marketing ploy, a coll e c t i o n o f aid m o v i e , b i g b a n d m u sical and Andrew Loydd Webber favourites released just in time to cash in on the Christmas boom, But since both the Red Hot Chili Peppers (“What Hits?“) and Public Enemy (“Greatest Misses”) have released greatest hits collections suspiciously close to the approaching holiday season, it can hardly be held against Sinead, n o w c a n i t ? The first single, “success has made a failure of our home”, is done in truly excellent Sinead style. It has the emotional impact of the tear on her cheek in the video for “Nothing Compares 2 U”, if you like that kind of stuff. Which I do. “Black coffee,, is a groovy tune that I think I’d love even if I wasn’t helplessly addicted to caffeine. Listen to it really late at night or really early in the morning with your cat.

We can’t seem to hear enough bagpipes these days, or uileann pipes for that matter. BUT, and unfortunately this is a rather large BUT, these four songs are of the few good songs in the c o l l e c t i o n . “Bewitched, bothered and bewildered” is little more than a song that was meant to be sung in the Holiday IM l o u n g e s a c r o s s the world. Her first version of “don’t cry for me Argentina” is void of any of the usual Sinead punch, and the second, instrumental version is downright filler. Unless, of course, you like that kind of stuff, which I don’t. The problem is that Sinead has the t a l e n t t o w r i t e s o n g s t h a t f o c u s on h e r p o w e r f u l , a t t a c k i n g v o i c e , but the songs she’s chosen for “am I not your girl.7” don’t allow this to happen.

‘Every Now and Then’ and “Learning to Live Again” are two of the album’s best songs. Brooks is a great pop songwriter who taps the familiar without sounding cliched, and while he doesn’t have a great voice, he doesn’t annoy you all the same. That Brooks can go from singing about learning to date again (“Lear&g to Live Again”), to losing your virginity to a lonely widow in the next song proves Brooks can easily cover all the song writing bases w i t h o u t m u c h work. Speaking of work, Brooks doesn’t seem to be doing much of it on this album. There’s no aching or emotional vocals (although ‘Face to Face” comes close} because Garth’s world is a kinder, more gentle one.(A Cosby show for white America?)

Now, I’m not going to bring up the bad experiences I had at Maple Leaf Gardens when I tried to see

Morrissey and was kicked out by bouncers whose testosterone count w a s h i g h e r t h a n t h e i r I Q . I’m not going to go over that because that would mean I was bitter. And I’m not bitter, dammit. Two singles: one deal, one ripo f f . T h e s e c o n d single “You’re the One for Me, Fatty” was a pretty obvious choice because of its hummable chorus and all around sprightly gait. Songs like this are what stop me from completely losing interest in the Bare Chested O n e . “ Y o u ’ r e the one for me, fatty/You’re theone Ireally,reallylove~AndIwillstay/ Promise to say if I’m ever in your way.” Get it? In your way, like it’s about this Fatty person, and Morrissey would be in their way on account of they’re so fat!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha heh heh heh . . . heh heh, hmmmm. Well.

B-side wise, we have the best offering since the “Pregnant for the Last Time” single. Both songs, “There Speaks a True Friend” and “Pashemate Love,” are what B-sides are all about.

I won’t make excuses, however. They’re not even close to-the B-sides he was coming out with when he started, Songs like “Get Off the Stage” (the “Piccadilly Palare” B-side) and “Girl Least Likely To” (the “November Spawned A Monster” B-side) are absolutely essential for any Mozz disciple. These are great songs that do have something interesting to say. Meanwhile, these two new ones are all right, and worth shelling out da c a s h f o r . TJnfortunately,the~~~~~EPis not as th.riKng.

commodate their propensity for supporting local talent, and for the release of their own band’s single releases. In keeping a tight g r a s p over the release of their own product, Superchunk are probably orchestrating their own obscurity. I’m By Christopher Waters imprint staff

Tossing Seeds f Superchunk’s singles collection, has been one of the triumvirate of recent releases which has been on daily, heavy rotation in the soundtrack of m y life. Its staying power, as well as the collection’s appeal, resides mainly in the fact that everything about Superchunk is simple. Simple, yet, as a c o m b i n a t i o n , s o c o m p l e x , a n d exciting.

This collection of singles covers the band’s seven-inch output from their inception as a band called Chunk, a name taken from the U.S. postal services’ creative misspelling of original drummer Chuck’s name, to the band’s Chuck-less, Super-prefixed state. (Actually, the band has just released their latest seven-inch single and thus begun the single collectionsecond edition.) Based in Chapel Hill, North C a r o l i n a , S u p e r c h u n k a r e a band with a plan. They created their own record label, Merge Records, to ac-

sure that no major label will ever p i c k up the band given the strin-

gent guidelines for their packaging and promotion. But then again, when current “alternative” major label hype bands, like Helmet, die a horrible commercial death, due to the sheer fact that they are boring, insipid dullards, perhaps then b a n d s like S u p e r c h u n k a n d Yo La Tengo will have a chance to grasp for the golden ring. But d o n ’ t l i s t e n t o me -- listen to the band. From their first single, “What Do I,” right through to the end of “Seed Toss” ’ second B-side, a cover version of “Brand New Love,” Super Chunk have perfected a Singles Going Stecldy for the ’90s. As plead vocalist, Mac nasally intones in “My Noise,” the band’s anthemic raison d’etre: ” It writhes beside me / It has no choice / It is my life and it’s my voice / It is stupid / I t i s m y - n o i s e . ” Superchunk inspired their fans to yell “Sell out” when they supplied the music for a British Knights commercial; however, their head for simplicity and promotion prevailed even in that case, as the commercial producers would have merely got a Superchunk sound-alike studio band to do the take. S u p e r c h u n k f i g u r e d t h a t they m i g h t as well take the money and sound good. In this context, they proved the chorus to “Tossing Seeds” and Superchunk’s finest moment to date, “Slack Motherfucker”: “I work, but I don’t work for vou.”

In his Skaface review two weeks ago, Imprint’s renowned editor, Peter Brown, referred to ska as “a dead genre of music” and stated that, if you like ska, you should “seek help.” In contrast to Pete’sopinionJfindska tobefullof vibrant life and rhythm, and whatever help I may or may not need is certainly not a result of my musical taste. Moreover, it’s hard to take Pete’s opinion about ska seriously, coming from a man who performed “Against All odds” at a karaoke event. With that in mind, I managed to drag myself out of bed and get to Toronto in time to witness the Special Beat concert. Special Beat is an amalgamation of two bands (The Specials, The Beat - imagine that), who were at the forefront of the early eighties ska scene. The band lives up to the “two tone” label, as five of it’s nine m e m b e r s a r e white, Notable members include Neville Staples (ex-

The band bounced onto the stage and proceeded t o deliver outstanding versions of the Specials’ tunes “Concrete Jungle” and “Monkey Man.” At this point, a f e l l o w concert goer exclaimed that the opening songs alone were worth the trip to TO. The beat and the skanking went wonderfully on and on, as the band performed such classics as “Ranking Full Stop,” “Gang-

The. American .Way 1 Bob Roberts Written and Directed by Tim Robbins by Stucey Lobin Imprint stafjr

What is m o r e d i s t u r b i n g t h a n the rampant growth of bleedingheart, left-leaning tendencies? The unchecked rise of far-right, neo-fascist sentiments, of course. Regardless of which way you swing, Bob Roberts is a film everyone should see: a film that documents, through parody, the deliberate and systematic rise and deification of far-right conservativism in (American) politics. Delicately orchestrated and painstakingly planned, Bob Roberts is a how-to guide of which buttons to push in the American electorate; in particular, Bob Roberts shows exactly how powerful a politician can become, when he (and definitely not she) places strong emphasis on traditional “family values,” and appeals to the type of person most susceptible to this pitch: the downtrodden, the unemployed, the common citizen looking for the American dream. This film is a darkly ironic p a r o d y o f today’s American political climate, a climate in which appealing to the lowest common denominator, the American people and the American way, is guaranteed to get results. It’s truly frightening. The film is set up as a docum e n t a r y , with a n E n g l i s h j o u r n a l i s t f o l l o w i n g t h e hectic campaign trail

of Bob Roberts, a country/folk singer whose right-wing, xeniphobit tunes (and subsequent runaway popularity) launched him explosively into the political arena. As a structure for this film, the “serious” documentary perfectly sets off the hilarious satirical content, employing all the slick intercutting techniques of documentary by showing scenes of Roberts o n the campaign pail, i n t e r s p e r s e d with clips o f his videos and album covers, clips of local TV newscasts, and on-the spot interviews with his aides and admirers. Meanwhile, the journalist, an Alistair Burnett-type, is uncharact e r i s t i c a l l y b i a s e d , s p e n d i n g more time with Roberts’ detractors (his own mother, for one) than with his sheep-like supporters. His dislike for Roberts comes through with nice restraint ‘ a n d s l a n t s t h e “ d o c u m e n tary” accordingly. Of course, even if this was a straight documentary about a real Bob Roberts, he’d still come across as a fascist idiot. Roberts is running for the position of senator in Pennsylvania against. a long-time incumbent Democrat, who was elected during the Kennedy era and therefore is attacked for his “left” policies -cutting the defence budget, instituting a national health-care system, etc. Roberts is a stock market investor (in addition to his singing career), a young, up-and-coming Republican, dubbed “The Rebel Conservative” by his Washington buddies; his obvious similarities to some very real people are precise and

deliberate. Roberts is an unclear figure, in terms of his history, but he has a crystal clear agenda: to reclaim traditional American values, to quash any hint of free thought or individuality, and to make lots of money. All very admirable goals for the leader of the New World Order. Enough about the characters. The actors themselves are excellent: Tim Robbins, as writer, director, and star, proves himself to be a -thoughtful and imaginative auteur. His debt t o R o b e r t A l t m a n , director of 77~ Player, shows in Bob Roberts; many of the same actors who appeared in the former show up in the latter in delicious little cameos (mostly as TV anchors or interviewe r s ) . T o r o n t o n i a n Rebecca J e n k i n s plays an adoring campaign aide, who leaves under mysterious circumstances. Alan Rickman plays the mysterious, independently wealthy campaign manager, who may or may not be part of a massive d r u g s m u g g l i n g o p e r a t i o n , using his charitable organization “broken Dove” as a cover up, but he “can’t recall” during a senate hearing on the issue. l-lee hee bee, It seems like I’ve told yo& a lot, but this ain’t the half of it. This i s a very funny movie, despite its dark sentiments, and remember, just because it’s set in the U.S., that doesn’t meanit Couldn’thappenHERE. The devastatingly negative, mudslinging Roberts campaign commercials alone are worth the $4-$8 you’d spend. So get out there, see this movie, and don’t forget -- VOTE.

Seattle Sauna . becomes Seattle Sig:ht 1

Singles directed by Cameron

Crowe

by Marcy Weiler

special to Imprint

From the advertising and soundtrack, it seemed likely that this film was just an inevitable bounce on the bandwagon, hoping to draw an audience based on the popularity of the Seattle music scene and it’s impressive cast of twentysomething actors too old to star in Beverly Hills 902 2 0. However, director, writer and producer Cameron Crowe has managed to create a humourous film that both glorifies and pokes fun at everything contrived in its plot. The setting of the film, which centres around several characters all living in the same apartment complex, seems to be another hint that staying home to watch Melrose Place would be the same torture, o n l y cheaper. The p l o t , concerning the romantic entanglements of the characters, does little to dispel this h o r r o r . Y e t C r o w e h a s t a k e n a satirical bent in the film, and makes his characters just believable enough to poke fun at them without it becoming harshly sarcastic. The music and locale are fondly represented in the movie, so that fans of the Seattle scene will not be disappointed, but the brand of humour would entertain an audience less

famifiar with the setting. It is the characters, rather than the setting, which make this film enjoyable. The large cast capitalizes on typical cliches, the most obvious b e i n g Matt D i l l o n ’ s character Cliff, the vocalist in a rock band. Asked about the group’s single “Touch me, I’m Dick”, Cliff fumblingly explains “It’s got like dual meaning man.” The scene is reminiscent *of any number of i n t e r v i e w s w i t h the lead singer of Nirvana. The other main characters are less one-dimensional, but their situations are similarily derived from cliches of-the era, from one character’s employment and devotion to the Seattle Environmental Council, to a costume party where patrons come dressed as their favorite contraceptive. If it kept with this light humuor, Singles may have been more consistent and effective+ However, Crowe’s blunder is in trying to make his two main characters more serious than the others. Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgewick portray two executives who meet at a club and fall in love. They seem out of place in the downtown clubs of Seattle, as briefcase-toting execs might at a Soundgarden concert. Throughout the film, you may easily come to hate the whining and blubbering of these two insecure lovers. But that i n itself, g o a d e d o n b y s o m e o v e r sensitive and annoying acting on the part of Scott, provides some

humourous entertainment, albeit not intended. Of course within the cast, Crowe has used every- possible ploy to lure moviegoers. There are severaI cameos by well known actors and Seattle musicians. Pearl Jam and Chris Corner1 of Soundgarden have small speaking parts, and both bands as well as Alice in Chains perform at a club in the film. There is no doubt that Crowe is indeed fond of these musicians, even as he is lightly satirizing them. It is likely that the size and popularity of the cast will make this film something of a cult favorite, so long as the Seattle scene doesn’t sink into oblivion too quickly. Crowe has taken pains to create a cult appeal with his off-beat style, including having the characters speak into the camera, and filming several short and humourous flashback scenes. While both devices are currently trendy and hardly a tribute to originality, they are effective enough in Singles to produce a”few laughs. Cameron Crowe can be proud that he h a s not attempted a serious film on his hometown’s newfound fame. The farcical tone of Singles is definitely funny enough to warrant spending the money at the theatre. It may do you some good to get uut anyway, rather than the alternative of staying at home with a rousing episode of Melrose Place.

Momus the Unstoppable Sex Machine by Trevor imprint

.

Bhir Stuff

In the early ‘BOs, a British group called The Happy Family released an EP and an album before dissolving. One member, Nick Currie, went back to school to finish his degree in .-Literature, only to return to the pop arena a few years later as Momus, God of criticism, literate pop craftsman extrordinaire. Had Currie the foresight of the gods, he would’ve forgotten about school, seized the reins of The Happy Family and made The Smiths phenomenon unnecessary. In ‘86, Circus Maximus heralded Momus’ arrival in London, his own personal lion’s den. Since then, he’s continued to martyr himself before the distracted masses, languishing in obscurity, giving birth to a religion which shall span millennia. Switching to Alan McGee’s Creation label, albums continued at a steady pace: The Poison Boy@ktzd, _ Tender Pervert, Don’t Stop The Night, Monsters of Love, last year’s Hippopotamomus, and finally 1992’s watershed, two albums: The Ultraconformist and Voyager. Also,

to coincide with Voyager, Black Spring.Press has released a lavish collection of Momus’ complete lyrits entitled Lusfs of A Morun. Last July I met with Currie at a cafe near his home in London to discuss past and present obsessions. Prior to the discussion however, some distractions. The original cafe, his choice, proved to be in the upstairs section of a furniture store. It was also under construction. A few minutes early and disguised in my vacationing college student garb (dirty jeans, work jacket) I loitered amongst the rubble, potential vicCm, I thought, of a cruel joke. Then again, a track off of Voyager is called “Virtual Reality,” where “all you have to do is dream.” So I closed my eyes, imagined his likeness and . . . When Cur-rie arrived’ he apologibed about the construction and we headed over to a nearby art school coffee house. As it turned out, the senior class was having a show, so the space was being used. Suddenly transfixed by one exhibit, Currie wandered over to a large painting of Nintendo icon Mario beneath which was a television, Super Nintendo and Super Mario

Coffee und chocolate fingers mit Morrrus und Trevor - they were getting along like a haus on fire! Haus on fire!! c Land game. On the wall, through Mario’s chest read something like: “In 2000 years, man has not been able to come up with any new Gods.” The facing wall was a mirror-like Sega display with giant Sonic the Hedgehog painting and game. Momus picked up the Nintendo control muttering “I don’t think I understand . . .” I started the game; he ran Mario headlong into the first approaching monster. “You’re supposed to jump . . .” --he didn’t hear me. A repeat performance broke the spell and I agreed to a third cafe suggestion. Last year, Hippopotamomus came under corporate fire when the Michelin company objected to both his song “Michelin Man” and to the Michelin-like Nippopotamomus cover star, Currie tells me of a student who documented the “controversy” in a piece called Amongst Ladies Only. He goes on: “Creation’s re-releasing the album with the cover changed to just enlargement of the zppopotamomus’ head.” What about the songs? “Well they’re pulling Michelin Man, which, if it ever came to court, I couldn’t see us losing. But Creation doesn’t want it to happen in the first place, so . -. .” Currie gestured with resignation and went back to his lemon sorbet. I inquired about the recent flurry of productivity: “A little while ago I was actually quite depressed about the whole thing and was seriously starting to wonder whether this. . . career was just going to end. I got busy and since then I’ve fallen in love and am quite happy with the way things are going. McGee, who hasn’t liked any of my Stuff since Poison Boyfriend apparently likes Vcryager as mu& as, if not more. There’s a video for “Spacewalk”, my second (after “Hairstyle Of The Devil”) and even talk of releasing another single.” The title track “Voyager” would be a good choice. “That’s how it looks, though 1 think “Summer Holiday 1999” would -do better. As far as radio play is concerned, the albun is doing pretty well though I’m not sure about the sales.” I tell him about a DJ promo copy of “Spacewaik” which I found in a used shop. “Really? Hmmm . . . I don’t even have a copy of that,” frowning, he takes a

photo by Trevor Blair Styrofoam leaf out of his mouth, puts it back on his plate.-1 suggest that “Virtual Reality” sounded very similar to the Pet Shop Boys’ “Domino Dancing,” going as far as to use the word sample.. . “Sample! it’s not a sample. No, ah . .” (hurriedly) oh! well, 1 thought since the song was called “Virtual Reality”’ yoy were making a comment about how artists would be the architects of this new reality and how important they were. Sort of name dropping the PSB’s style as well as paying artistic homage. l

live stuff on tape?’ I said yeah. . . but nothing you could use and then I decided to re-record a bunch of songs leftover from all my albums anddoitinasortofcabaret/vaudeville s@le. The only new song on the album is the title track. “The Mother-in-law” was from Circus Maximus, “The Cape and Stick Gang” from Tender Pervert and so on.” I mention the recent dual-album releases from Guns and Roses and Bruce Springsteen, jokingly implying that he’s looking for a bandwagon. “Well I actually specified that there be a four month space between the two, although in Japan they had simultaneous release.” Going back a few years, we spoke about Tender Pervert, the only Momus album released domestically incanada by Polygram. Origin a l l y t i t l e d T h e HOmosexud, Polygrad Canada asked for the change. “Yes, they basically said ‘we can’t promote an album called The Homosexual. I was also going to call The Prison Boyfriend Lusts Of A Moron (now the title of his book), Uon’t Stop The Night was 77~ Negro and, actually The Poisun Bm&& is a song from 1982 which isn’t on the album. I like to save good titles and regurgitate them.” On Pervert, Curriewritesfromthepointofview of a homosexual, as well as, on “The Homosexual” a heterosexual who, because of his nun-conformity is declared “queer” and persecuted as a homosexual. Through the character we discover that the label is unto itself: merely a label which society employs, like many others, to justify their treatment of you. A sexual Black Like Me. I wonder how the gay community regarded it. “From a distance really, they mostly would rather just not be bothered. I really can’t blame them either; any liberal position made in

Mumus mumus bo-bomus, banana-farza fu fumus, fej7 Hippuputumumus, Mumus! “No, I didn’t really mean it like that, I. . . get along with the Pet Shop Boys. They invite me to their parties . . . sometimes. I just sent them a copy of Voyager this week with a note saying ‘from your own pers o n a l Weird A l Yankovic.“’ Really? “Yeah, and apparently someone from Creation gave Prince a copy backstage at Earls Court this week. He wanted to know why I hadn’t included a note. Someone askedhimifhewasapervertandhe said ‘Yeah . . . I’m a pervert.’ and then they asked if he was a tender pervert and he said ‘there’s no such thing!“’ Ironic, given Prince’s obvious religious leanings and since the Tender Pervert Momus refers to on his album of the same name is God. Unbelievably, Currie refers to Hippqwtamomus as a bit of light, throwaway album, citing it as the reason behind the delay in the lyric book. “McGee said ‘right, then let’s wait till you do something more substantial.“‘What then,is the story behind The Ultraconformist, released on the Diablo label? “Cherry el, who released

first

album,

Circus

Maximus went under and resurfaced due to some Japanese financing. They said ‘we’d love to release a Momus record, do you have any

public is suspect. Sting, for example - in drawing attention to the rainforests, is ultimately drawing attention to himself. Anyway, with Tender Pervert, I wanted to portray a stereotype of deviance and I feel it was successful.” Momus passes his time in the studio, DJing at a club and apparently travelling. When we spoke he’d just returned from a two-week tour of Japan where he is treated “quite well.” Voyager, a space-age pop album concerned with the relationships between emotion and technology seems a well-timed theme to coincide with a trip to the land which like Barthes, Currie agrees is an “empire of signs.” “When you’re a young boy of 14 or 15 you have all these visions of what the future will be like and I think as you grow older you become a bit disappointed that it doesn’t turn out that way. ++but. . .inJapan... the future did turn out that way!” We speak a bit about the portrayal of the future in various films: “Yeah, Bladerunner . . . well that’s Tokyo really.” I accuczk2 Cutrie of straying

continued from page 28 his past works and seems overly optimistic. To be fair, I’d only bought the lyricless tape a day before the interview and lyrics which I misunderstood to be “Love - has left me a rhythm,” turn out to be “Love - has left the arena.” I fell prey to the seductive textures of the technology without allowing the lyrics to communicate. This dillema arises when we discuss “Virtual Reality” and “Cyberspace”: “It took me two years to get Voyager out, it’s a very, very personal work and yes, my approach was different . . . I cast myself as a director would cast a main character and on this album. I wanted to convey the views of a shy young Japanese girl and her perceptions of the technology and imminent future around her. She asks: ‘is technology here to protect us?’ T see the 90’s as an age of inwardness, a retreat from the world - that’s the ‘splendid isolation’ I refer to on the album - the retreat from chaos. We have to understand. that there are issues of social justice that must be dealt with before we enter into cyberspace.” The prospect arises of a planet where the first world lives lost in the techno-utopia of cyberspace while the third world literally starves to death. I suggest we essentially have a romance of sorts, a love affair with our technology ‘which is a manifestation of our prosperity: “Well . . , love can be a terrible thing... it’s not very civilized, it’s actually a pretence for very bad behaviour.” I remind him that he’s in love. “Yes! I know.” Momus turns, requesting an approaching woman for another drink. Of course she doesn’t work at the cafe - she too is a guest and, after giving him a nasty look, walks out the door.

by Fmnk Seglenieks lmprint stuff This interview was done in the Campus Centre before Jonathan Richrnan played at the ‘Shelter. During the interview, he was busy copying French phrases he had been learning from an old notebook to a new one. Imprint: How was the bus trip from Guelph? Jonathan Richman: Fine, it was only about 40 minutes, what could go wrong? IM: Didn’t meet anybody interesting? JR: Not that I can recall, if they were that interesting, I think I would have remembered. IM: So when you are touring you take your knapsackand your guitar and you travel the roadways of North America? JR: I take buses and trains, rent a car when I have to. IM: Is this a tour around North America? JR: Well actually just the mid-west and east, I did the west about a month ago. It should last about five or six weeks. IM: Your recent release Having d Party with ]onathm Richman was a combination of you solo with some live tracks. Does your new album I, Jonathan continue in that fashion? JR: It’s sort of like that only its a bigger party. IM: Do you think you will ever play with a band again? JR: Well I use a drummer sometimes, like Brendan the producer of these last albums. He sat in with me

on drums just the other week -- and Michael Guadovasio: he’s my drummer from years of old. TM: How about playing with other guitarists? JR: No, I don’t think so. IM: Do you keep in contact with some of the Modern Lovers? JR: Yes, in fact I do. IM: Why did you move from your home in Massacusettes to live in California? JR: I wanted something new, I live there with my wife and two kids, a seventeen-year-old boy and seven year old girl. IM: Usually your songs are quite personal. Do you think we wilI ever hear songs about how your children react to you or what’s going on in their lives? JR: I never know what I am going to make up songs about, I never know. IM: Do you live on a farm out there? JR: That’s right, we got a farm, a garden, some horses. IM: What kind of music do you listen to these days? JR: Old rock and roll, Africanguitar players, Gypsy Kings, modern Cuban music, Slyvio Rodriguez, and other styles of Cuban music, mambo music, lots of different things. IM: In your song “Just aboutSeventeen” you have the line “You still can’t beat me for Rock and Roll,” I think this is still true, what do you think about rock and roll today? JR: I don’t think anybody has improved on the’50s and ’60s stuff, myself. IM: Your earlier albums seemed to have a more optimistic view of relationships, but recently you have
