The expansion construction at Frederiksen Court has caused a lot of noise disturbance and parking inconvenience, said Anastacia Macallister, graduate student in mechanical engineering. This construction has especially affected the Frederiksen Court buildings 11 to 13 and buildings 31 to 34, also called teens cluster and 30s cluster. Peter Englin, director of residence, said the current noise disturbance and parking inconvenience is just a
process of the construction, part of life and it is a solution, which will bring ease in the long term. “Part of the growth process that we go through is there’s a level of inconvenience, and we’re really trying to provide a solution to another problem that students have complained to us about is not having adequate places on campus to live,” Englin said. The ISU campus is growing at a fast rate and the demand for more oncampus housing is increasing, causing the construction expansion. “It’s just hard being a student,” Macallister said.
“I mean, you’re up studying, ... and then we kind of keep weird hours, sometimes, because the night ... [is] time to do your homework or something, and you know when you get woken up before classes start — even the crack of dawn — is just kind of inconveniencing; you don’t get a lot of sleep.” Due to the construction, parking lots in front of the 30s buildings are closed. This resulted in the opening of the parking lots across the road on 13th Street.
“There’s really not much you can do about it; I mean it’s just there. We kind of gripe and complain about it,” Macallister said. “It’s definitely been a big hassle and inconvenience for a lot of people.”’ Macallister is not only concerned for herself but for other residents’ safety. “At night it’s kind of hard, there’s

Fringe comics tackle hot issues By Victoria.Emery @iowastatedaily.com
Antiquarianism is the collecting of ancient Greek and Roman art by Renaissance artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo. For a lot of people, the connection between comic books and Renaissance art may be nonexistent. For associate professor John Cunnally, it was clear.
The Underground Comix are Cunnally’s main area of study, and his collection of them from the 1960s and 1970s are proof of it. Underground Comix are rarely collected, but Parks Library has more than 1,500 issues in Special Collections for anyone wanting to get a taste of this movement. “We’ve had everyone from re-

>>COMIX.p1 searchers from around the world to students come look at the collection,” said Michele Christian, collections archivist and university records analyst at Parks Library. “You could say that this idea of telling stories and making arguments by combining pictures and words starts then in the Renaissance,” Cunnally said. During the Renaissance, there were more arguments about religion than anything else, Cunnally said, so the images of that period would come from different sides of religious arguments. “Ever since then, comics, whether they’re newspaper comic strips, comic books or modern contemporary graphic novels, have always had a reputation for pushing some kind of agenda,” Cunnally said. The Underground Comix of the late 1960s and 1970s were created during a time of social revolution. Cunnally said people tried to promote new ideas about politics, sex, drug use, religion and moral values. Comix became a natural way to promote these ideas.
Nick Wong Junior Mechanical engineering “I’ll be sleeping in; seriously, I don’t have class.”
“It’s a medium that is very psychologically attractive. Whenever you read a comic book or comic strip, you’re participating in it, because you have to link up the different pictures in your mind. You’re a part of the creative process,” Cunnally said. Cunnally said the Underground Comix promoted some people’s values from the late ‘60s and ‘70s through graphic images of violence and sex while promoting the use of psychedelics and hallucinogens as a good way to cause religious experiences and personal discoveries. These comic books covered a variety of topics from political unrest to abortion during a time when it was controversial and illegal. They also covered topics like established religions, incest, sexuality, violence, drugs and divorce. The title of the first Underground Comix to come out was “Zap.” “Zap” was created by Robert Crumb in February 1968. Crumb took the comics around to shops himself to sell them. When they turned out to be popular, he printed off more and made eight issues that year. As the Underground Comix became more popular, other artists joined Crumb. Each had their own individual style based on their personal experiences through life and their training. The combination of all these made it so that none of the titles looked too similar. This was an original trait to the Underground Comix, particularly when compared to Marvel or DC comics, which can share the same traits of similarly trained artists. The popularity of these comic books continued to rise until 1975 when the government began closing down shops for selling illegal items in their stores. As the shops closed, Underground Comix began to deteriorate as well. Due to its popularity, it was able to keep going on subscriptions alone for a while, but eventually even that couldn’t support it anymore. More of the artists who did these comics disappeared into obscurity, but a few, like Crumb, were able to gain fame through syndication. During the glory days of

Dean of Students
Office offers help to struggling students at ISU By Alejandro.Gutierrez @iowastatedaily.com

>>CONSTRUCTION.p1 only a crosswalk there. It’s not like we have a light,” Macallister said. “You kind of just sit and wait for the cars to stop, and when you see a break in the traffic you run to get across the street, and when it gets a little icy, it’s not exactly the safest thing.” Macallister said that the growth of the university is important but also said they feel forgotten and neglected. “Well, we do understand that we need to make more space; it’d be nice if they kind of mitigated the effects on the current residents a little more,” Macallister said. The Frederiksen Court council and the Department of Residence both work together to make decisions and work on ideas that will help the situation. “We kind of look at it as part of life and progress, not necessarily not caring about the student experience or that we’re not aware that there’s a level of inconvenience, but we always ask that students kind of bear with us. This is a great solution to a larger problem as enrollment grows,” Englin said. Englin understands the discomfort of the residents at Frederiksen Court. Englin said, “The reality is Frederiksen Court residents enjoy better parking than most employees or most every other student that’s at Iowa State.” Englin thinks that this is a change that the residents will have to get accustomed to. “We know they’re frustrated and on the other hand, we’re also trying to be excited about the
The Dean of Students Office, located in Student Services, provides a navigating service to students who are struggling on-campus. There are common misconceptions that circle the Dean of Students Office. There are plenty of other reasons a student could get in contact with the Dean of Students Office other than for something severe, such as academic misconduct. If a student does find themselves in a case where the law is involved, they will likely be connected with Michelle Boettcher, assistant dean of students and director of judicial affairs. “Of all the people in the [Dean of Students Office], nobody wants to come see,” Boettcher said. Apart from this area of the Dean of Students Office, the office is composed of 16 different departments, including LGBT, greek affairs, recreation services and more. “One thing students may not know about is the National Student Exchange
dealing with the bigger problem,” Englin said. To avoid having students living in the dens of residence halls, the increase of campus occupancy through the Frederiksen Court expansion is necessary in order to accommodate more students who want to live on campus. “We’re opening up new Frederiksen Court buildings. We’ll have two buildings that are able to open this fall,” said Brittney Rutherford, program coordinator for the Department of Residence. Rutherford said that the sum of parking ratio will maintain and more parking lots will be made available, but they will not be in the same spots, they will be spread out. “We’re trying to make the impact as minimal as possible on the students, but there definitely are some inconveniences and we know that, it’s kind of part of our growing pains a little bit in order to get the buildings built and welcome over 200 new residents this fall, we have to construct now,” Rutherford said. Rutherford also said that the construction timings are difficult to adjust according to the students’ schedules, for they vary from one student to another. The construction work goes on during normal work days and hours. Englin apologized and appreciates the patience and understanding of the students who are going through this problem. “I think that it’s important that students know that we’re sorry for the inconvenience, we really are; we understand that this comes with a certain amount of inconvenience on their part, and we appreciate it,” Englin said.
States. For example: You want to study some place for a semester or a year, but you want to go to Hawaii.” The goal of the office is to facilitate students’ time at Iowa State and to help build a path to success. The professionals that comprise the office collaborate with students for improvement. “There are a lot of ways to get involved and get the most out of your experience at Iowa State, and the [Dean of Students Office] can help,” Boettcher said. “We don’t want students to have to go to 45 different places.” Boettcher wants the office to be a one-stop location for student resources. “We are here to act as a gateway to clear the clutter and help you better navigate throughout the vast opportunities this university has to offer,” said Keith Robinder, program coordinator who works with student assistance and outreach. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the office no matter how big of a hurdle they are in need of overcoming. The Dean of Students Office will also step in if a stu-

What we may be able to do is get a student connected to a scholarship program, but we may be also able to bridge to financial aid, which is not part of the [Dean of Students Office], but we are kind of the hub and we connect to all those other resources,” Boettcher said. Robinder wants the misconception that the purpose of the Dean of Students Office as the place that only punishes misconduct to be a thing of the past. “We commonly see at orientation where parents are at the booth across from ours that has free cookies, and they glance over at our booth and point us out to their kids and say ‘that’s where I hope to never see you,’” Robinder said. “From that moment on students go unaware that we exist for reasons other than misconduct.” “You don’t know you need it until you need it,” Robinder said.

Sports are for athletes, not artists Wrestling has been a part of the Summer Olympic Games since the Olympics began more than a century ago in 1896. In the Olympic Games of the ancient world, which ran from 776 B.C. to 393 A.D., athletes also wrestled, starting in 708 B.C. When the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that wrestling is now on a list of sports that might not be included in the 2020 Games, it shocked the world. The committee’s announcement Tuesday states that wrestling is not one of 25 “core sports” and therefore is with seven other “shortlisted sports” that will be included in the program as an additional sport. Such news defies all historical precedent. Wrestling has been part of the Olympics from almost the beginning. Wrestling has been an Olympic contest since Homer wrote “The Iliad.” Olympians wrestled since before the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta. They wrestled since before Alexander conquered the known world, from Macedonia to Egypt to India. Before Caesar invaded Britain, Olympic athletes wrestled for more than 600 years. When the Romans extended their empire over Greece and the Near East, they allowed the games to continue. Indeed, they were discontinued when their ancient religious purpose became incompatible with Christianity. Activity inherited from the past should always be adjusted as modern needs require, but retaining the truly ancient sports such as wrestling, boxing and martial arts, is important for keeping us in touch with the whole point of the Olympic Games: displaying athletic, competitive prowess. Instead of maintaining the millennia-old traditions, the IOC decided to keep such “sports” as synchronized swimming and trampoline or artistic gymnastics. Instead of maintaining the tradition from eons past of egalitarianism, the IOC decided to indulge sports that display art or aristocracy rather than unadulterated physical power or the egalitarianism of the ancient Olympics. In the case of artistry rather than athleticism, the comparison should be obvious. Indeed, the difference between such competitions seems so obvious that we cannot really articulate why wrestling is superior. The Olympic Games have a tradition of being open to anyone who wants to compete. At least, that is how they were done originally. The only criteria for participating in the competition was that athletes be a free citizen of a Greek state. Some might say that wrestling is a sport that is popular only in limited parts of the world. A critic could say that since the Olympics are a worldwide event that encompasses all of humanity, people from all countries and cultures should have an event to compete in. But how inclusive is it to have something for everyone? In some societies equestrian sports are the province of the rich; some do not have martial arts traditions in events such as judo or taekwondo; obviously a lot of countries do not adore basketball the same way we do. But on the wrestling mat, everyone is equal. Everyone wrestles.

Courtesy photo People have often compared Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” with the economic struggles and fear of big government within the country. Columnist Michael Glawe became disenchanted with Rand’s thinking and believes this form of capitalism could harm society and economy.
ust this past week a bill was introduced to the Idaho state senate by Sen. John Goedde requiring high school students to read “Atlas Shrugged” and take an exam on it to graduate. He wasn’t being serious, though, as he has stated he has no intention of pushing the bill through the legislature. It was brought up merely to “make a point” about some of the arbitrary decisions being made by Idaho’s Board of Education. Whether Goedde was subtly and frivolously lauding his favorite book, or just “making a point,” his actions highlight Rand’s influence on politicians nowadays. Prominent politicians Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Paul Ryan, and other devotees of Ayn Rand’s magnum opus “Atlas Shrugged,” will have you believe that the work is a realistic political parable, even more relevant today than ever before. Sales of the book have soared to great heights (according to the Ayn Rand Institute, more than 7 million copies have been sold), with business leaders emulating the heroines of Rand’s dystopia every day. Detractors like myself, however, dismiss the work as a silly homage to greed. I should admit, though, that I was once an aficionado of Rand’s ode to capitalism. I snapped out of the fantasy, however, after I realized my egotism was driving my friends and family away. In retrospect, my love of objectivism was, perhaps, just a “phase.” For those who are unfamiliar with the book, the plot centers on a future United States where much of the developed world has converted to “big government” under quasiMarxist policies. In short, the U.S. government is spiraling into an infinite regression of overtaxation and overregulation. This angers the business leaders, inventors, artists and all the other “brilliant minds” who have to put up with the “moochers” and “looters” of the world who just want what they have. So the nation’s brightest innovators decide to go on strike by hiding in the mountains. This essentially stops the “motor of the world,” leav-
By Michael.Glawe @iowastatedaily.com ing the U.S. government in frantic disarray. You can see why “Atlas Shrugged” appeals to most, if not all, businessmen nowadays. The novel itself was used as a channel through which Rand could push objectivism, a philosophy based around the pursuit of one’s own happiness as the moral purpose of life, absent of any sort of altruism. Can we possibly imagine a society that has adopted these principles? I suppose we’d be reinforcing what humans are already good at doing: being self-interested. Rand contends that this is necessary to man’s survival, but haven’t we moved beyond these primitive means? The human solidarity renders objectivism a supererogation. Caring for others is a part of that solidarity. It is our nature to not only be selfish but also selfless. Many libertarians and conservatives who have adopted Rand’s work seek to defend businesses from the “tyranny of big government.” The list of politicians pushing Rand’s ideology is extensive. The major figures include Ryan, Paul, Ronald Reagan and Gary Johnson, all of whom were serious contenders for the presidency. The major political endorsements of “Atlas Shrugged” has, in turn, dramatically altered the political landscape. Because people believe Rand “prophesized” the future of capitalism, a pseudo-revolution against the government has erupted. Objectivism, it appears, has extended beyond the business environment. A Gallup survey from December 2011
showed that 64 percent of Americans fear “big government”, up from 32 percent in 2009. This increased fear of the government, I believe, comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of such functions as taxation and regulation. For starters, our economy is not a completely free market economy like the one idealized in “Atlas Shrugged;” it is a mixed economy. Furthermore, the U.S. government exists to protect the freedoms and rights of its citizens. The rise of “big business” has forced us to reexamine how and when we can protect those freedoms. The trick, of course, is to keep capitalism and government oversight balanced. Lovers of laissez-faire economics have neglected this balance. Isn’t it ironic, though, that the public should commit themselves to defending the very “innovators” who ran us into the ground four years ago? The global crisis of 2008 occurred because of the under-regulation of capitalism. Alan Greenspan, a close friend of Rand and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, blatantly ignored the dangers of out-of-control subprime lending and fundamentally blocked the regulation of the derivatives market. Our allegiance to capitalism has rendered us masochists, of which the infliction of pain is given by the corporate sadists who deliberately crash their company in exchange for bonuses. To praise a pure capitalist society, where the powerful “innovators” willfully harm our economy, is the definition of sadomasochism. I believe the government has the power and the responsibility to prevent the infliction of pain on the participators of our economy. In Greek mythology, Atlas bore the celestial sphere on his shoulders. Oftentimes, the citizens, the true Atlases of our country, must bear the same burdens. Though, the true Atlases will never shrug.
Michael Glawe is a sophomore in finance and political science from Spencer, Iowa.
Letter to the editor
Banning guns is not answer to problem A lone gunman walks into a school in Sandy Hook and opens fire on a crowd of terrified teachers and students: men, women and children. They died as a result of a man who had reached his breaking point for whatever reason, similar to the Columbine incident in 1997 where two young men, armed to the teeth, staged a massacre at Columbine High School, as well as the theater shooting where a young man opened fire on a crowded theater. In today’s world, the sad truth is that it seems we all feel the need to be protected from an enemy that hides in plain sight. This controversial issue of gun control is nothing new; in fact, it was first spoken of before 1776 when the Constitution was created. The Founding Fathers thought it ludicrous to include the Second Amendment in the bill of rights because in their time, even the thought that someone would try to take their firearms was unfathomable. The Second Amendment reads: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” I believe at the moment, Congress is failing to read the last four words.

Now, there is a call to ban all weapons which have a “high-capacity magazine.” The logic here seems unshakable; the fewer rounds you have at your disposal, the fewer deaths that can result. Provocative thought, however, that those who argue this point conveniently miss the action of reloading! Let us believe that a gunman is armed with an AR-15 assault weapon, with 10-round magazines opposed to 30. Is there a reason that person would not simply load a few extra 10-round magazines to make up the difference? Sure, a law could be instituted to prevent such things but let us be realistic here — laws only work for those of us who play by the rules. The United States also has a larger incarcerated population per capita than any other country in the world. The way I interpret that is that we have many folks who simply do not play by the rules. It is quite like the one person who always seems to end up with a mountain of cash as the banker while playing Monopoly. It is clear that something must be done. However, banning weapons is simply not the answer. On its own, the inanimate object is not dangerous. I personally have three weapons in my home, and I have yet to walk into a situation where my AR-15 is holding my cat hostage.

have yet to hear about an incident where the employees of Bass Pro or Cabellas run for their lives as the weapons break out of their cages and start firing volleys into shoppers. The point here is, as an inanimate object, weapons are simply well-engineered pieces of metal designed to perform a certain action. In the case of a firearm, the purpose is to cause a round of ammunition to fire in a controlled manner and in the way intended. Where that round goes is up to the person behind the trigger. That is where we should be focusing on making improvements in our society today. The time has come that we can no longer cast those who are struggling with mental illnesses to the wayside; we should, as citizens of humanity, help those who are struggling. Let us not concentrate on gun control, as that is simply not the problem. It is more than coincidental that firearms were used in all of these incidents, but humans have been killing each other ever since we discovered rocks. Perhaps it is time to halt foreign aid, and use those funds within our own borders to help our loved ones, our youth, our veterans and our future.

ISU makes semifinals of student sections
Iowa State’s men’s basketball student section has advanced to the semifinal round of 16 for the top college basketball student section in the country. Voting takes place on facebook. com. The eight programs with the highest number of votes advances to the final round of voting. The winning school will be announced March 8. The winner of the competition will receive a $10,000 award to be used in its general scholarship fund. - Dean Berhow-Goll
Road woes continue for Iowa State The ISU men’s basketball team fell to 1-5 on the road in Big 12 play, losing to Texas (11-13, 3-8 Big 12), 89-86. The Cyclones fell into another foul-or-not scenario at the end of regulation, this time choosing to foul. Ioannis Papapetrou sunk a 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left to send the game to overtime. Then in double-overtime, Iowa State trailed 87-86 and Sheldon McClellan stole the ball from Will Clyburn. Iowa State was led by Melvin Ejim, who tallied 20 points with 16 rebounds. The Cyclones shot 35 percent from the field and 33 percent from behind the arc. Iowa State plays TCU (10-14, 1-10) at Hilton Coliseum at 12:45 p.m. Saturday. -Dean Berhow-Goll
By Dylan.Montz @iowastatedaily.com The instinct has always been there for Nikki Moody. Since her days at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas, the 5-foot-8 ISU sophomore point guard has worked to get the assist just as much, if not more than, scoring herself. Looking for the open player is something she feels has come easier to her than other aspects of her game. “Whenever I feel like more than one person is on me, I feel like somebody is open somewhere,” Moody said. “So in my mind, I know somebody is somewhere, so they can get [the ball].” Moody currently ranks third nationally in assists per game with 7.6. The No. 24 Cyclones are also 16th nationally with 16.7 assists per game as a team. Sharing the ball is something Iowa State has excelled in all season long, and it starts with Moody. When Iowa State was recruiting Moody, who was born in Des Moines, she was invited to a camp Iowa State hosted the summer before her senior year of high school. What impressed ISU coach Bill Fennelly about her was her quickness with the ball and a certain “edge” she brought to the court. Knowing she played in a “great league” in Texas at Trinity High School and averaged 18.1 points, 4.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds as a senior, Fennelly offered Moody a scholarship after the summer camp. After some thought, Moody accepted the offer. “I think she felt comfortable here, and she knew that there was going to be playing time available, and for a lot of people that’s a big deal,” Fennelly said. “And she knew we were going to need that [point guard] position. Recruiting is so much about things falling into the right place

Lightweights hope to peak in time By Dan.Cole @iowastatedaily.com
The ISU wrestling team’s impressive turnaround from last season is due largely to the success the five heavier weight classes — from 165 pounds to heavyweight — have been able to find this season. The lighter weights, however, have been a slightly different story. The starters from 125 to 157 pounds have a combined record of 47-48 this season and boast zero nationally ranked wrestlers, while the latter weights have combined for a 71-24 mark this season and list a ranked wrestler at each class by either InterMat or W.I.N. Magazine. “I think they’ve struggled a little bit,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson of his lightweights. “I know where their head is at and from that perspective I understand the process and where we’re at with building these guys to where we need to get them to. But from a win-loss percentage, obviously it’s not where we thought we’d be.” Despite the struggles from these weight classes earlier on in the season, some of them seem to be gaining momentum at an opportune time as the regular season winds down toward the Big 12 Championships. Redshirt sophomore Ryak Finch, who was an NCAA qualifier in his freshman campaign with a 15-10 record at 125 pounds last season, did not begin this season in as positive a fashion. He has been wrestling better recently, however, having won four of

his last six matches for the Cyclones. “It’s a constant process,” Finch said. “I think a lot of the guys are starting to feel good about the gains we’ve made. ... I think that I’m definitely peaking at the right time and ready to make a good run at Big 12s and nationals.” As far as the reason for the season’s early struggles, Finch said it’s hard to put his finger on why he was underachieving. He made changes as
the season has progressed, more so in terms of mentality than in style, which has allowed him to be more incontrol during his matches in order to get his setups and attacks off. ISU assistant coach Troy Nickerson, who won an NCAA Championship at 125 pounds while he wrestled at Cornell, works closely with all of the Cyclone lightweights and said he doesn’t think anyone on the entire ISU roster has reached
their full potential yet and the lightweights are certainly no exception. “I’m seeing improvement out of each one of them every week in specific areas,” Nickerson said. “There’s a few areas we need to tighten up, but I don’t think any of them have really reached their full potential yet, but that’s all in preparation through the year and just our training cycle, and they’ll be peaking and running on all cylinders come March.”

Ames couples create romantic soundtrack By Cole Komma Ames247 writer
Love is in the air for the Ames music scene. Maximum Ames Records will provide a soundtrack for next year’s Valentine’s Day. Due out in February 2014, the musicians of Central Iowa and their significant others will put out a compilation album featuring songs the couples wrote together. The record can be preordered through Maximum Ames, and the buyer will be given a song per month until the release. “I had the idea at Elliot Imes’s wedding … and I brought up the idea just kind of jokingly like ‘hey, we should do a record of songs that are just couples writing songs together and recording together as a Valentines Day thing,” said Patrick Fleming, frontman and guitarist of The Poison Control Center. “And here we are seven months later.” Each couple chose their own way to record and produce their song. Nate Logsdon, frontman of Mumford’s, and his girlfriend, Adrien Daller of the band Trouble Lights, recorded their song “Psychic Baby” in the Spacement. Logsdon said each of the couples went to a studio they were familiar with or to their home studios. “It came about because Adrien and I make up these funny little ditties that we sing to each other,” Logsdon said. “And whenever she would know what I was going to say or knew what I was thinking, I would sing her this ditty about her being my psychic baby, and we just flushed that out into a song.” Having two different musicians creating a song together may seem like a difficult task, but Logsdon said the results will be interesting.
“There’s nothing more exciting than collaborating and creating something with the person you love most, your best friend,” Fleming said. “I think that’s what couples do in their everyday life, whether you’re making dinner, writing a song or the way you fold laundry. The other person is going to influence your way of doing it.” The mystery of love is broadly defined, but both Logsdon and Fleming seem to have found it. “To me, love means trust – being able to respect one another and genuinely being able to give a big part of your life and yourself to another person to expand yourself and expand your
l i f e ,” Logsdon said. “Love is real, love is understanding, love is patience and all sorts of different things. But when you find it, you’ll know,” Fleming said.

Kris Clarke, sophomore in business, just released his latest hip-hop album, “You Can Call Me Kris” on Feb. 1. When did you start rapping? I’ve been doing it for about three years now. I started back in high school trying to free style, spit some rocks, and then it naturally progressed through getting a lot better at what I did. I started making songs, putting music to beats and stuff like that. I started getting it out and people responded positively to it, and here we are today.

How was it making this album? We did two albums and an EP as Chaos Saints, and I did an album under my own moniker, which was Eskimo. But I had to change that because I wasn’t really feeling that anymore either. My album “You Can Call Me Kris” is a lot more personal and a lot more reflective than my old stuff was. More of just a reflection of who I am, and that’s why I changed it to Kris Clarke seeing as it’s my actual name.
I really wanted to put myself in my music, so it can be a little more transparent and so that name change just came with the feel of what I wanted to do with my newest album. How did you record it? Me and Dennis Haislip, who’s the owner of Alexander Recording Company, worked on all my projects together. He’s like family to me, like a brother, even though he is like 20-something years older than I am. We get along great; we just have this incredible chemistry together. Together in what we do, we’ve been going together with each project, so this is like a combination of all of our talent put together. We really put our souls into this one, and it came out pretty well. He’s a phenomenal engineer and a phenomenal person so he’s a great guy to work with. I couldn’t imagine doing an album working with anybody else besides him right now. What are you planning on doing with this career? Will you be taking it seriously or is this just a hobby? Will you be planning any tours or shows? This is kind of a hobby right now since I go to school and have a job and other commitments, but I do want to make it a career. That would be probably the coolest thing I could do is to be a touring musician.

Music: Matt Pond
Game: ‘League of Legends’
Movie: ‘Warm Bodies’
By Sam Abrahms
By Levi Castle
By Gabriel Stoffa
East Coast singer-songwriter Matt Pond has consistently released new music almost every year since his first LP in ‘98. Back then, his group went by the moniker Matt Pond PA, due to his roots in Philadelphia. Now Pond is kickstarting a fresh, new solo career on his own. “The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand,” compared to past projects, straddles the fence between indie rock and contemporary pop. But does it deliver? Matt Pond has years of experience under him and could’ve stretched some creative muscle in more ways that one, but the album really just glides along giving listeners passive relationship advice until, well, the music stops and all is silent. Ultimately, it’s riskless in the most obvious ways.
Every once in a while, I play a game that can become practically brand new when I try something out just slightly different than before. One of those games is “League of Legends,” or “LoL.” After playing the game for two years, I think it’s time I gave my thoughts on it. Currently, LoL is one of the most played PC games. One of its biggest draws is that it’s free, but the game has other underlying qualities that make it just so much fun to play. The game has a sort of tower-defense style, but with dynamic champions thrown in that make sure no two games are alike. There are more than 100 champions to choose from, with an additional champ added every couple of weeks. In the end, there’s not much to it, but I and millions of others still play it daily, so they must be doing something right.
In a genius marketing move, romantic comedy and zombies have been combined to create a zomb-rom-com in “Warm Bodies.” The big message to the movie is the old adage: All you need is love. The main zombie/love interest (Nicholas Hoult) goes by the handle “R;” an apt name considering the usual zombie vocabulary and Shakespearean references. The human love interest is Julie (Teresa Palmer), the daughter of the resistance leader against the zombie outbreak. See the Shakespeare, star-crossed lovers? Yeah, now you’re getting it. All in all, “Warm Bodies” is a funny film with some meaningfulness but not with too much to make it overly serious or too silly. Well worth the time to see in theaters, and an excellent date movie.

While sailing around the world in 2000, TV journalist Geraldo Rivera was followed along the coast of Somalia and nearly attacked by modern-day, Uzi-wielding pirates. The good ship Geraldo could have been a major haul for the pirates, but they were foiled when the newsman had his crew fire flare guns, drawing attention to the vessel and frightening off the attackers. Despite their menacing appearance and fierce name, dragonflies cannot sting and are harmless to human beings. In 1858, Hyman Lipman received the patent for the first integrated pencil/eraser writing utensil— simply by combining two pre-existing products. Fortunately for Lipman, the Feds were late in figuring this out, and by the time they decided to revoke his patent, the crafty inventor had, according to most sources, already sold the rights for $100,000.

which it normally does for people, to develop that trust. “She’s got it now and I think she’s playing at a really high level.” The biggest difference Christofferson has seen in Moody from last season to this one is her maturity on the court. As every good point guard should, Christofferson mentioned how well Moody knows not only the point guard position, but all the other positions on the court as well. Moody’s court sense and leadership is something that has blossomed even more so in the last season. “She’s more comfortable on the floor, she’s more vocal and just growing as a person,” Christofferson said. “She’s just become somebody that you look to get the ball in their hands. You want her to have the ball down the stretch because you know she will make good decisions.” In Moody’s last two games combined — at Texas and at home against Kansas State — she has tallied 24 points, 20 assists and a mere three turnovers. With the skill players Iowa State has on the floor at all times, Moody has to do just one thing. “Attack,” Moody said. “The more I attack, the more I draw people towards me, which makes it easier to kick to an open player.” Even though Iowa State possesses capable shooters on the outside and
>>MOODY.p5 at the right time and sometimes, there’s no rhyme or reason to how it happens.” Last season as a freshman, Moody had the benefit of having former ISU guards Lauren Mansfield and Chassidy Cole on each side of her to give her support in the backcourt. The learning curve of going from high school to college isn’t simply on the court during games, but on the practice court, in the classroom and in a person’s life outside of school and basketball. Teammate and junior forward Hallie Christofferson recognized how beneficial having Mansfield and Cole was to Moody during last season. “When you’re a freshman, you don’t really know what to expect, and you go from high school and AAU [to college ball],” Christofferson said. “Texas [high school basketball] is probably different than Iowa, but it’s still going to be a big challenge. This year, she’s made so much improvement.” Although Moody’s season was a success as an individual — she broke the ISU freshman assist record with 133 — there were times when she would get down or upset and detached somewhat from the team. Fennelly believes most freshmen experience the same type of feelings at some point during their inaugural season. “There’s always an element of trust involved,” Fennelly said. “At what point do the players trust the coaches, do the coaches trust the players, and do the players trust each other? That’s a three-pronged thing that we talk about here all the time. It’s taken Nikki a little while,
post players on the inside, Moody’s willingness to accept her role of attacking the lane makes her perhaps the most dangerous offensive threat for the Cyclones. “Some say she might be the only ball-handler on our team, so you want to have the ball in her hands so she can get into the lane and dish to other people,” Christofferson said. “It just helps to have someone that can control the ball as well as she can.”
