Corportations influence our news media Broadcast journalist and UW alumna to speak on Ryan Chen-Wing IMPRINT STAFF
EX' alumna and CNN anchor Colleen McEdwards is visiting campus on Monday, June 17 to speak about corporate influcncc on the media. "It's just startingto take holdnow with thesemegamergers. AOLtncrging with TimeWarner is one of the bigexamplcs. So [AOLTime Warner] is now the biggest media conglomerate in the world - it's huge," McEdwards said. AOLTime Warner owns CNN, McEdwards' employer.
Colleen McEdwards speaks on June 17 in DC1304.
"Youtegot the samesort ofthing in Canada. You've got Canwest Global buying up a bunch of Southam newspapers and thc NationalPost so now you have Global owning allthese meda. "It's not so much that corporate owncrship is bad, it's just that Canadians need to be looking at the conccntration of corporate ownership. If fewer and fewer companies own more and more of thc mcda, how is that going to change the type of information you get and might be entitled to?" she said. "It's more subtle than that. It's a changc in the way youget yourinformation, where it's duplicated and what the sources of it are. You assume it's coming from all differcnt sources but maybe what you're not aware of is that it all came from the same source. And it's way too soon to know whether this is any kind of a big-disaster but it's something we better be aware of. "Ncws isn't supposed to be profitable," said McEdwards. She then related the anecdotc about CBS's 60minjites. The producer walked into the newsroom and told the staffthat he had good news and bad news. The good news was that the show made money, but then thc had news
was also that they made money. Aftcr c;O-nzinzte~, says McEdwards, networks saw news programs as potential profit centres and this can affect how news is reported. "Before that, networks saw thelr ncws shows as a semcc to the pubhc for t h w use of the a~rwaves." Mchdwards 1s a graduatc of the UW Enghsh co-op program. "The rcason I wanted to go to Waterloo was because of the co-op program. It's a huge draw." Her first experiencein journdtsm was on a co-op work tcrm at CKCO. "I had no intention of being a journahst. I thought I would teach, but 1 just happened to get this [co-op] job because it was a writing job. Thirteen years later I'm working as an anchor for CNN." Aftcr graduating in 1988, she worked for a CTV affiliate, A m , in Ncw Rrunswick. After that she worked for CBC in Wlndsor and thenToronto beforemovingto CNN in 1997. McEdwards' talk entitlcd "Corporate Influences on Canadan and American News" will start at 7 p.m. on Monday,June 17 in Da\G Centre 1304.

Zero: restaurant may start serving coffee to busv students Continued from page 3
Zero, such as a staff training program and a "15 minutes or it's free" lunch menu, which includcd sandwiches, salads and soups. Di Lullo said that 'Ground Zero's hours of operation may be reduced in the fall term as a cost-saving measure. Ground Zero was open Monday to 1:riday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the fall and winter terms. Although there are no dcfinite plans to renovate Ground Zcro, the Feds are considering a number of options, such as installing a coffee shop ~nthe restaurant's bar area. "If we're going to go towards something IikcaSecond Cup oraTimHortons," Di Lullo said the coffcc shop would be about the size of theTim Hortons outlet In the Davis Centre. If the Feds decide to implement any changes to Ground Zero based on rhc rcsulrs of a student survey, Di I ,ulio hopes the new and improved cbtablishmcnt will be ready by Janua i r 2003. The Feds marketing department ih \\.orlung on a student survejr to
determinewhat needs to beimproved at Ground Zero. "Once that survey's done -and it should be done by thc cnd of this term -we'll do some focus groups and then we'll look towards implementing what students want," Di Lullo explained. Hc also added that the survey will be available on the Feds Web site, feds.ca. Di Lullo said hc finds it ironic that Ground Zero is competing with thc Bombshclter, whichis also ownedby the Feds. "It's ridiculousto me thatwe have two businesses right ncxt door to each other that arc competing with
each other," he said. "They both work out of thc same kitchen. It's kind of frustrating because one day, food sales w111 be up in onc place and down 'in the other." Whcn asked if the Feds are considering a merger between Ground Zero and the Rombshcltcr, Di Lullo rcplied, ''It's something that we're still looking into." He added that the studcnt survey wiu determine whether Ground Zero will continue to operate as a rcsraurant or another type of establishment.

Letter of agreement To the editor, I've written this short letter to express my agreement with the criticism you put forth in your May 31 column entitled "A disappointing journey." I graduated from thc physics program two years ago with similar negative feelings. As you said, there are good aspects to the faculty. It does, however, nccd significant improvement. Also, Ms. Jenna Holko is correct in her assertion in the last Imprintthat wc live in a superficial and oversexed society. 1 am in total agreement with her well written and well thought-out letter. It's my hope that inmy lifetime, w o m e n d ovcrcomc this and permancntly discard the Cosmo magazine sociodynarnic.
Letter of disagreement To the ~ditol; , After rcad~ngthe art& cnatled "A dtsappointlng lourney" I feel compelled to respond to uhat 1 new as unfounded defamatory accusanons lcvcled at the phys~csdepartment As a graduate of the ph) stcs department myself, I feel that Ms Komec7na's attack on the quaho~of her educauon is also an attack on the qual~tyof mine. My time as a physics undergraduate wasn't easy, but I never thought that it was supposed to bc. A lack of female role modcls certatnly &dn't affect me. Not only do I have enough confidence in myself to not needconnnulngrcassurance that "womcn can do science," but there are actually female professors and graduatc studcnts in the department. Not recognizing their contributions seems ~nsulttngto thclr accomphshments. 1 am also qulte offended br the tmphcation that man! of the morc senlor profcssora ~nthe department have nomterest in teachingand don't care about their studcnts. I can say first hand that tlvs is blatantlyuntrue. Throughoutmy undergraduatecareer 1attempted my assignmentswell before they were due and if1 cncountcred problems I went and visited with these professors. I was never turned away or madc to feel unwelcome. 1 was always told to pull up a chair and never sent away unal my ;luestions werc answered and I had been helped towards understanding. It seems to me that if anyonc is lacking in this situation it is Ms. Konieczna. Clearly she made some wrong decisionsin high school about the dtrection her life should take. If "all of thosc interesting courses in the calendar" weren't in her field of study, then that should have been a good indication to rethink her path. Perhaps a general sclence degree would have been more appropriate and allowed for a greater number of non-sclence courses. Perhaps In second year when the restrictions ofher
present program became apparent it would have been a good time to make a change. Blaming everyone but herself for her disappointments when she was quite capable of changing her situation seems shortsighted and unfair. I do agree with Ms. Konieczna that scientists should be "thtnkers," but clearly some people just aren't cut out for it. - Sarah Welch gradzlate student
Against Zionist propaganda To the editor, I am always intrigued by the propaption of falsities in the Israeli-Palestine confict. It's as if those who sprcad lies to discredit the other side think that they are doing their own side a favour. Yet, aftcr some 50 ycars of conflict, these myopic individuals seem unable to recognize that their spreading of misinfortnation only serves to deepen the confict. Mark Eltis' column in last week's Imprint had onc and only one purpose: to portray the Palesunian side as being a bunch of irrational, crooked, violence-loverswho would prefer the Al-Aqsa lntifada over peace any time. This would have been fine, however, if hc had some solid facts to back his suspicious claim. Tnstcad, Eltis shamelessly provides as evidence the Palestinian rejection of a supposed Israeli offer of 95 pcrcent of the West Rank and the establishment of East-Jerusalem as the capital. This is nonsense. The Palestiniansdid not rcjcct the 95 per cent offer precisely because thcrc was no such offer. As the Israelipress itself reported in the summer of 2000, at the Camp David Summit Isracl offered to give 50 per cent of the West Bank to the Palestinians, annex 10 per cent and leaw thc rcmaining 40 per cent for further discussion. Inaddition,Isradwanted the West Bank to be dwided into three scparatc cantons so that travel within would involve passing through Israeli border stations. ;\Iorcovcr, Arab East-Jerusalem was to be ceded to Israel with only l'alestinian neighbourhoods having Palestinian sovcreignty. And to top things off, Palestinians would not have control over their water and airspace.This is what was rejected. Vulgar propagandists in the medla and elsewhere make it difficult for everyone to get the real facts of this confict. But only an acknowledgement of the truth by all sides in this conflict can provide a foundation for pcacc. -Alyy
Just the facts To the editor, I am writing in refercncc to thc Mark Eltis' community cditorial published on May 31. It's good to see an accu-
rate description of the Middle East conflict.1 checked out each date and sure enough Mr. Eltis is correct on each of them. The Arab world has done nothmg but refuse negotiations for 55 years. It's difficult to understand, from the Western world, how such a confict could last for so long. After all, Israel is such a tiny state; it is surrounded by enemies and has been attackcd constantly. It's difficult to undcrstand that it is an actual war zone. TOLS,a war zoneis in a &stant. battlefield. For Tsraclis,the war zone is their front yard, their cafks and their streets. It sccms that time and rime again, the Tsracli military has proven itself superior to every other army worldwide. I speak in particular about the Isracli military's concern for their enemy's civdians.The Israeli military has taken heavy casualtics to thcir soldiers in ordcr to protect the lives of Arab civilians. Wc often forget that Israel is a nuclcar power. They also have oncof the world's best air forccs. And it would bc casy to clear an area with a simplc air raid. But instead, they fight door-to-door to avoid physically harming innocent Palcsdnian civilians. All this while the Palestinian leaders I d their own civilians as suicide bombers. I've come across a Web site with an appropriate takc on the Middle East. w&.lv.real-1srael.comanno~ces news from mainstream newspapcrs while introducing editorial and opin-
ion in an almost unbiased manner. It's good to scc that some feel the need to speak the truth. After all, Israel is an actual warzone. It's not accidental, or even precautionary, to mandate that every Israeli citizen enlist in the military at age 18 that's high school graduation. Talk about an education in lifi. I just learned that the entire Israeli Red Cross equivalent is volunteer staff. Now that's saying something. On top of that, a large portion of the ambulances are armoured vehicles. When you need an ambulance to absorb rifle-munitions, that's a warzonc.
Imprint credibility To the editor. In the May 31 issue of Inpint, Ryan Chcn-KJing wrote about the paper and how it "doesn't cffcctively serve its readers." 1 must say that 1 agcc entirely with this statcmcnt, along with his comment on "no onc dares criticize Indpn~f'(rcfcrring to stw dent leaders). However, 1 do believc that Ryan isn't giving students at Waterloo the credit they deserve when it comes to ac4uiringaccuratecampus news. The majority of pcoplc that I know do not turn to Iqprint for important campus-related news. There are at least two better forums for acquiring such info - the
Dazb Bzllletzn,and the Gaxette. Both c these sourcescontam campus-relate mformanon, wlthout the "filler" th; you d find elscwhcrc. If you at look~ngto find out who 1s the fir company to move Into north campt you do not turn to Impnnt When students reach for a cop of Imprint, they are not reaching fc a ncws source. They are reaching fc something more closely resemblin a tabloid. ltis an easv-to-obtainsourc of entertammcnt to take their mnc off their current academic situatior - a small break from the everyda lf you wlu. Some of the recurnng columr are d d l L entertanmg, I adm~t,b~ ovcrall thc quahty of Impnnthashee dechmng as of late.

Buddha's four noble truths What it's all about
Buddhist philosophy centres around the essential question of "why is thcre suffering?'Buddha's answer to this question is encapsulated in I s teaching on the "Four Noble Truths." In fact, the first sermon Buddha ever preached after his enhghtenmcnt was about these truths. Let's take a look at the four noble truths and how they can apply to our lives. The first noble truth is that life itself is suffering. Pain, frustration and strugle are inherent withm the act of living. Even if you don't feel as though you are suffering at this moment in time, open your eyes and you will see misery all ovcr. There are refugees starving, children dying, terrorism, torture and really difficult CS exams. To livc is to move towards death. You can never escape this truth -every soul will taste of dcath. Accepting the truth of suffering is the first step down the path of Buddhist understanding. The next noble truths show how to deal with this understandmg. And so the sccond noble truth is the realization that suffering has a cause. The
cause of suffcring is the struggle to exlst. Each of us is constantly trying to prove ourselves. We must get ccrtain jobs, wear ccrtain clothes and act certain ways. We suffer as we struggle to define our individuality and hence ~imultancousl~ cnlphasize our scparateness. The hardcr wc try to establish ourselves and our relationsh~ps,the more painful our experience becomes. But the third noblc truth gives hope. Tt states that suffcring can be ended. The solution is counter-intuitive -instcad of struggling to end suffering (notice the contradiction), we have to realize how unnecessary it is to prove ourselves. Instead of trylflg to be someone, we should just "be." ~hildrendon't try to be cheerful, mothers don't try to be loving and mathes don't try to be geeks -they just are and that is the key. This truth takes courage. We've got to abandon our expectations of how we think things should be and just let them "be." The final noble truth is "thc way." It is the path to end suffering. The key is meditadon, or what is also called the practice of "mindfulness/awareness." This is not just somcthing we do in private, but rather all the time. We should be mindful as we study and as we play. Mindful of thc ways we hurt ourselves and others. Mindful of the simplicity of life when we abandon expectations. Mindful of the fact that thc Truth has a plan and we are a small part of it. What comes after that? Peace.
Who ever said summer was slow? Seems to me hke therc's plenty going on, and in that spirit I present another rapid firc list of things worth commenting on: i' It finally happcned: Finance Minister Paul hlartin was (surprise!) unceremoniously pitched overboard by thc increasingly despotic Prime Minister. i' You can expect a stacking of the Liberal leadcrship review next February, in order to ensure that Chretien can stay on as king unul either hc or Martin dies. In the meantime, prcpare for the Prime Minister to continue denying the existence of any cthics crisis whatsoever, all thc while implementing guidelines to fix the problems which, accordmg to him, don't exist. i' At least one lcadcr knows when it's time to quit: NDP Leader Alexa McDonough announced her ~esignationof thc party leadership last week. Hopefully, Joe Clark is taking notes. Y Another year, another summit: apparently the Anti-Everythingists had so much fun breaking things in Ottawa last spring, they'vc decided to do it all over again in the nation's capital, in spitc of the fact the actual G8 summit is in Kananaskis, Alberta. Granted, it's a smart move given thc fact that the military is scaling off the summit. Tear
gas and pcpper spray is one thing, hut you probably don't want to fuck with ( 3 - 18s and tanks. Thcn again, this is the Chadian militaq- wc'rc talking about, and rumours of its existencc are dubious at best. i' Speaking of thc upcoming protests, a fcw quick predictions: lots of indy media coverage detahng snakc march routes in mind-numbing detail; liberal usage of the words "solidarity", "oppressive" and "corporate"; 68 claims of police violence against unarmcd protestors extending flowers as a pcacc gcsture. i' Since some of us are into frec plugs, here's one: why not check out the everinformative firstname.lastname@example.org, your one stop onlinc shop for all news pertaining to UVI' studcnts. You might also cnjoy the rather heated dcbatcs about such things as dereplation, corporate support of the university, and vast right-wing conspiracies cnplfing Waterloo. Fun stuff, I kid you not. i' I'm no soccer expert, but can someone please explain to me why so many players involved in this year's World Cup feel the need to engagc in spontaneous &splays of Oscar-calibre acting? I'm talking, of course, about every player who goes sprawling whenever they gct tackled. Their faces would suggest they've been shot, stabbed and castrated. Yet, five seconds later, thcy'rc good to go for a free kick. When Scott Stevens ends your career with a blind check, go ahead and complain, but stop faking dcad when a guy with onc name makes you kiss the grass. i' Lastly, this is by special requcst - can someone please do something about the daytime music at the Bombed
As the new writer for Imprints queer column, I found my first task to be the most dfficult. For weeks, I was complctcly indecisive about what I would call the new column. 1 knew that I wanted it to be short and simple, catchy but not ovcrly pragmatic; something pcople could easily refer. For me, a to which . column name is something like a tattoo. Once it's there, you had bcttcr fully appreci ate it, othcnvise it could undermine everything that you are about. So, in the end I decided to listen to my life. On the day in which I set out to name this column I just happened to be wearing a t-shirt that read "Undefeated." It was my good friend Shelley who pointed it out. It was perfect really; a perfect name for t h s column. It says m one short word how I rcally truly feel and how I think that all members of the queer community should feel. In fact, it is how I thmk every person should feel. Since this is my first article, 1 believe it is important for you to get an idca of who I am. My name is Aaron Timothy Cowan. I am a history major, currently in my fourth year at the Uni~ersityof Waterloo. Additionally, I am openly gay. While my sexuality does nothing to define me, my experience of learning of it, dealing with it and accepiing it has made mc thc person that 1 am today. 'I'oday, I am undcfeated. -
Being gay means a lot to me and as a result I am very much confident in who 1 am. For me, k i n g gay mcans bcing unique and 1 love that. I also think that while it may be casy to scoff at what society has den~cd the queer community, wc should also be thankful for what it has given us. For this reason, 1 a m so completely thrilled that I haw bccn givcn the chance to write this column. You wiU probably observe throughout the next weeks that I have a lot to sap. It is my hope that my words and my insight will reach some of you and make you think. I also must point out that whilc I do not consider myself a reprcscntativc of the entire queer community, I do recogmze the power of words and the responsibility that goes along with them. Therefore, my soapbox is not a tall one and it never wdl be. Perhaps that concerns some of you; perhaps that provides others of you with a scnse of relief. Rut, in general I must stress that while this is and always will be a column devoted to the issues associated with living as a gay person, I am also interested in writing about the struggles associated with just being human. It is my hope then that with each articlc, I will he able to relate the struggles of the queer community to those of everyone clsc. In one issue I may writc about stereoqTes, or I may write about what it means to be yourself to the fullest extent. But no mattcr what topic I should choose to divc into, I would like to invite all of my readers to step back and think about how that relatcs to you specifically. We are all more s d a r than I think we really know. Once again, 1 am very excited about this opportunity. Until the next issue then, I invite all of you to remain undcfcatcd.
Sit back, close your eyes, and listen to this story I've got for you. Well, 1 guess you havc to keep your eyes open, but still - prcparc yoursclf for a fable. Stories are pretty important things. Some of them get dismissed as child's play, some of them as religious fear-mongering, some of them as propaganda, some of them as myths or legends. But the big tlung about stories is that they givc you a framework for loolung at things: the world, your lifc, your next-door neighbour, whoever or whatever. Thcrc's a lot of stories out there, to teach you morals, to entertain you, to placate you, to make you obcdtent, to do a lot of things. Some of them come from way back in the carly days of modernity, some of them are as modern as you can get. They all gct told to varying degrecs and heard to different dcgrces. The most important stories, though, are the storics you tell yourself. Of course, thcy're made up of different elements of the different stories you've been exposed to, but
they are what pou're decided to put together to tcll yoursclf whcrc you fit in with the rest of the world, what role pou're playing and what kind of outlook to have on things. For most people, thcir sclf-story - how they see themselves -is pretty much ingrained and accepted into their consciousness, without them being consciouslp aware of it. They don't realize that their story is just that -a story - and not necessarily the actual factual truth. Thcy could just as easily be telling themselves a different self-story, with dtfferent results in how they view the world and how they live thcir livcs. What's relevant to notc is that no matter which story it is that they're telling themselves, out of all the possiblc stories thcy could be tekng, their belief in it is what makcs it real, their belief in it, and their of fulfilling the story by playing their part as they see it. At least, that's how I see it. I could be wrong though. Maybe most people do realize that all their self-talk is vcry arbitrary and they could easily choosc to tcll themselves something different, something that would allow them to live thcir livcs in a different way. Of course, that would mean my own story - that it is my role to explain to you how all this story-tckng works, since you don't already know -would be wrong, and simply a product of my own imagmation.

Professors who retired and who have distinguished themselves in their career receive the title of "lstinguished professor emeritus" as approved by their department chairsand the senate honourary degrees committee. Retiring professors who do not fit either of those categories are given the title of "adjunct professor (retired)." Last year TRACE compared the course evaluation results for 16 of the Distinguished Teacher Award winners to thcir ratings on a popular Web sitc: ratcmyprofcssors.com. Of
the ratings, 15 were consistent with the evaluations. Students can rate professors on a scale of one to tive for "clarity", "helpfulness" and "easiness." Accordmg toTRACE, Waterloo had 1,850 ratings - the highest number of ratings for a Canadian university. Thercwcrc approximately cight timcs the number of ratings for Waterloo than for the University of Toronto and Waterloo professors come out on top.

Snap, crackle, future-pop? The Bomber welcomes "post-industrial dance" duo Epsilon Mmus Epsilon Minus The Bombshelter June 14
SFEC~L TO IMPRINT Bogart Shwadchuck,onehalf of the local musical duo Epsilon Minus, has an understanding of electronic music that puts me to shame. So when he describes the band's sclf-titled debut as "post-industrial dance," I am Inclined to agree. "I try to stay away from sampling in general," he explains.

Indeed, the mainstream bias against industrial inusic is something Shwadchuck feels strongly about. "It would be nicc to scc somc of the bands that are doing creative thingsunderground get thc attention that they should," he says. "It's possiblc, but it'll take a push and it'll take money and it'll take interest and there's not necessardy enough of that to go around." Luckily, the band's album, whtch was released last month on Alfa Matrix Rccords, may be diverse cnough to pull it off. It contains everything from hard industrial beats to the acoustic "Nothing Is lndcstructible," from ambience to what Shwadchuck calls a "goofy joke bonus track." This week a CD singlc will bc released for the album track "Through," featuring remixes of the song courtcsy of othcr Alfa Matrix artists. Sdl, Shwadchuck believes his best work is yet to come and he fecls thc band has already grown since recording the debut. "Jen's become abetter singer.I'vc bccomc a bcttcr producer.

Art is an intehgible image of a real or imaginary thing. Of the components in h s definition,"image" and "intclligible" require some elaboration. Let's start with image. An image is a representation of something. Your face in the mirror is an image, a drawing of a castle is an image and a photograph of a rock on the ground is an image. A rock on the ground is not an image; it is a rock on the ground. Images are created. The word "intclligblc" might irk somc of you. For an image to be intelligble, the thing that is represented must bc known. For example, a reahst painang of an apple 1s tntelltgble becauce anyone can see that the image 1s of an applc. A blob of orange patnt on canvas, on its own, is just a blob of orange paint.

This is why what some consider art, others consider garbage. If we create a notion of general intelligibility by assuming general intehgence, experience, etc. among a class of people, then we can classify dlffcrcnt ptcccs of art as good or bad relauve to that class of people. Generalintelhgbhty, howeverobv~ously an approximate, qualiutative measure -is dynamic; n changes over ume. What IS gcncrally ~ntchgblcfor a class of pcoplc (say UW students) from one generanon may be generally umtehgtble for the same class of people a generanon later For example, P~casso's Uesmorsel/es DXvgnon was umntelhgble to most Westerners when Itwas unvelled (and 1s s d u m t e h g b l e to some) but ~t1s mtelhgble for more Westerners now than ~t was m 1920.

She stoll mv heart
Janine Stoll Everything You Gave M e SOCAN
Emything You Caw Me is the first acoustic effort of independent singcr/songwriter Janine Stoll. Stoll is a supple balladeer whose raw vocal umderings set against harmonicguitar-stmmmmgs make great theme music for your introspective mood. This is a disc you want to listen to on an overcastday as you srarc blankly out your bedroom wndow, chamomile in hand, ears perked and attcntivc as you absorb thc music. And no, you don't have to be staring out a wndowto apprcclate the album. Rut bclicrc me, Stoll's harmonic subtleties and vocal variations demand a reflec~ive,pensive mood; a mood oftcn induced by a still and transparcnt frame. hach song on thc CD seems to be its own windowinto the ncthcnvorld of Janinc Stoll. Sprinkled with Torontonian references, E t q ~ t h i ~.g . is a seemingly autobiographical projcct, at times sorrowful ("(:razy Ridc"), at times brooding ("Young Girl"), but always beautiful. Stoll is an artistic songwriter and an eloquent lyricist whose talents as a live performer have transferred faithfully to this, her first full-length record. As a musician, Stoll has a strong hold on her craft, with a range comparable to Alanis, a rawness not unlike 4ni and a uniqueness setting her apart from both. She is a rising talent worth looking out for and this album paints an accuratc portrait of hcr sound, her style, and her self. Lauren S. Breslin, lmprint staff
Choke There's a Story to this Moral Smallman Records
I can't figurc out if I likc this CD or not, so here's the deal: I'll tell you what I know and you can figure out for yourselfwhcthcr or not you want to buy it. I can say this: Choke's last album (1999's Foreward,is one of the best punk albums ever and There's a Story t o this Moral is nothing like it; however, that's not necessarily a bad thing. The thingis,where Choke used to be punk, now they're emo. Where they used to be fast and hard-hltting, now they're slower,better developed and more haunting.
The frantic but always prccisc rhythms and spine-melting breakdowns are still mostly present, but instcad of bcing condensed into a two minute punk song, they are spread out over a four minute emo song. Much of the time, something gets lost in the translation and instead of being innovative, the songs are long and rcpctitivc. Choke's attempt to create memorable emo hooks doesn't always work out and some, likc in "Forget to Learn," are just really annoying.There arc some good moments in this album: "Signing Off ' is agreat melding of Choke's old, fast sound andincorporates the great breakdowns and bridges of old songs likc "Recoil" with their new, more developed cmo sound. In the end, if I had the choice hetwcen this album and being eatcn by a bear, I'd take the album. It's a decent trip into the world of emo by a really talentcd Canadian band. Hut if I only had $25 to spend at a record storc, I'd go with thcir earlier &sc, Foreward. Ian Blechschmidt, special to lmprint
