Virgo 8/23 - 9/22 Always remember to highlight your foreign language skills on your resumé, even if your skills only include counting to six in Spanish with the Offspring song, “Pretty Fly.”

rawr is an alternative weekly publication covering art, culture, campus life and entertainment.

Libra 9/23 - 10/22 Your idea to combine this summer’s hottest movies is sure to be a blockbuster hit. A sexy Spider-man swinging from stripper pole to pole with Channing Tatum dolled-up as Gwen will totally blow viewers’ minds.

Scorpio 10/23 - 11/21 Keep your head up these next few weeks. There’s always a chance you’ll meet “the One” wherever you turn. Then again, there’s a Starbucks everywhere you turn too. Decide which is more satisfying. Sagittarius 11/22 - 12/21 Invest in some new notebooks for the upcoming semester. Trying to reuse the scraps of paper with various grocery lists could make calculus more baffling. “Pi equals eggs and cheese?...What?” Avoid the pain and confusion. Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19 Always surround yourself with people you love, but keep in mind that hanging posters of celebrities and pretending they’re portraits of your family is kind of weird... and stalker-ish.

good ol’ country classics “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers Rogers’ classic never gets old and offers the best advice to those just coming of age. “Know when to hold ‘em, know when’ to fold em’…and never count your money at the table.”

“Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty This twangy love song isn’t known for sappy lyrics. Lynn and Twitty team up for this up-beat, southern inspired tune.

“Mama Tried” by Merle Haggard Only mamas make it into the best country songs. This one is catchy, rhythmic and a perfect back road anthem.

othing quite compares to rolling down your windows, cruising down a dusty, starlit road and blasting a few country classics. There’s a little bit of Idaho in everyone, so toss out the stereotypes, add these tracks to your summer playlist and turn up the twang.

“Family Tradition” by Hank Williams Jr. You might know him for his Monday Night Football anthems, but this Hank is best known as one of the great country outlaws. “There’s nothing like a little family tradition.”

“Sixteen Tons” by Tennessee Ernie Ford This instant classic from 1955 is pure country gold. Originally written by Merle Travis in 1946, this hit became famous when Ford made it one of the first pop-country crossover songs.



Folsom Prison Blues and Complete Live at San Quentin (albums) by Johnny Cash Every song on these albums is worth a listen, if not for Cash’s

toe tapping, honest lyrics, then for the commentary and laughs generated by his memorable performances for the inmates on death row. “Walking After Midnight” by Patsy Cline One of the county genre’s leading females, you can’t go wrong with this classic on a starlit back road. “Hey Good Lookin’” by Hank Williams This song may feature a few sexist lines about the kitchen, but it’s also known for some of the greatest twang of all time. And if you listen closely, you’ll hear the love song it’s meant to be.

“Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way” by Waylon Jennings In the midst of a pop-rock generation, this ode to Hank Sr. reminds listeners what makes a true country song. There were no rhinestone suits, just a fiddle and guitar. “I’ve been everywhere” by Hank Snow The original version of this classic: give it a listen and you’ll never regret it. “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad” by Tammy Wynette Wynette helped pave the way for modern female country superstars with this hit about keeping up with the boys.


Chew on this Great granolas make snack time simple chloe rambo rawr From inside a bowl to a snack-sized bar, granola is a complex carb that conquers hunger like a champion. Often made from a mixture of oats, nuts and dried fruit like raisins and cranberries, granola has been a popular breakfast choice since it’s introduction in the 1800s. Despite the healthy reputation that surrounds granola, many varieties are packed with excess sugars and fats. That can leave us asking, is this stuff a nutritious breakfast angel or a calorie-bomb wolf in sheep’s clothing? Assistant professor and director of the coordinated program in dietetics Samantha Ramsay said granola

can be a beneficial fiber and a good source of complex carbohydrates, but can also hide a surprisingly high calorie count per serving. “Granola can be a healthy option,” Ramsay said. “However, there are many granola cereals that have a lot of added fat as well.” Carbohydrates, the little conglomerates of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, are energy sources for your body, but not all carbs are created equal. According to Ramsay, the complex carbohydrates found in whole-grain granola can also supply the body with nutrients like fiber, B vitamins and other minerals.

Granola is a complex carbohydrate source, but it also usually has a lot of added sugar. “For this reason, most serving sizes for granola are about ½ cup, (and that’s) something to keep in mind,” Ramsay said. Granola, largely consisting of rolled oats and nuts, uses it’s carbohydrate power to the fullest when combined with a complimentary item. “Overall, selecting a low-fat granola is a healthy option,” Ramsay said. “With the addition of non-fat milk or a light yogurt and a side of fruit, you have a wonderful breakfast.” Chloe Rambo can be reached at

Professor Samantha Ramsay’s tips for making a successful snack When buying granola, make sure the first ingredient listed on the back is a whole-grain product. Always include a protein source when you’re packing your snack. Cheese, almonds and yogurt are great choices.

Pick a granola bar that has three or more grams of fiber per serving.

NY Johnny’s hotdog eating contest returns Aug 25—with relish

file photo by steven devine | rawr

Brian Morris edges out Beau Chisholm during last years NY Johnny hot dog eating competition. This year the contest will be held in the same lot at Eastside Marketplace and is expected to be even bigger than last year.

joseph engle rawr If there was ever any doubt that Johnny Saltarella is a local celebrity, consider the turn out for last year’s hot dog eating contest. More than a thousand people crowded into the parking lot of Eastside Marketplace to watch 10 contestants wolf down as many

hotdogs as they could in 10 mintues. This year’s event is only promising to be bigger. “Last year was a huge success, “Saltarella said. “[I] listen to the guys on the street talk about it—who’s going to eat who under the table—it’s going to be huge.” The stage is set for this year’s contest; Aug. 25 at East-

side Marketplace, 10 athletes will again square off and scarf down. Among them are two men whose rivalry set the stage for high drama during last year’s contest. After 10 minutes, crowd favorite Beau Chisholm and dark horse Brian Morris were deadlocked. As a result of a tiebreaker dog, Morris came out on top as the first ever

NY Johnny Hot Dog Eating Contest champion. “Beau was the ultimate competitor, he really got the crowd going. This sleeping giant walks in there, and people barely notice him,” Saltarella said. According to Saltarella. The field this year is shaping up to be much more competitive than last year. He said that the application process to

compete became a lot more selective. Last year, people came in from all over the Palouse to watch the contest. “There’s so much excitement going on,” Saltarella said. “It’s a great time for everyone. One last hurrah as far as summertime events go.” Joseph Engle can be reached at

Batman rises to the occasion

It’s dark. It’s cerebral. It’s a genuinely fascinating study of human nature with real-world implications. As the finale to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, it is almost perfect. Make no mistake, the serious, dark, even brooding direction in which Nolan has led the franchise

joseph engle rawr

is a major departure from earlier renditions (à la the cheese-fest that was 1997’s Batman and Robin.) The result is a movie about the Caped Crusader that takes itself seriously, so much so that it almost seems plausible and realistic at times. It is downright

chilling to see the social order of Gotham break down under the control of Bane—mostly because it resembles so closely a combination of the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of the Nazi party in Germany. In many ways, Batman is trying to save Gotham from itself in this movie. Overall, it is a fitting metaphor. It’s refreshing to see a superhero movie that is more than a collection of action se-

A fitting conclusion to Nolan’s trilogy

quences strung together with only the barest wisp of a plot and a collection of one-liners. If anything, there is actually almost too much story. As an entry point to the trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises can be a bit unfriendly. It’s been a long time since I saw Batman Begins (when it came out in 2005) and there were quite a few plot points returning from that movie that are still a bit fuzzy.

Visually, the movie is a feast. The locations are varied and interesting, and the cinematography manages to avoid the now almost obligatory shaky-cam in favor of longer cuts. Altogether, it is a triumphant swan-song for the Batman trilogy, combining gorgeous visuals, solid action, smart writing and scarily accurate real-world themes. Joseph Engle can be reached at




When you’re a freshman and life could be fresher, you can always go

Downtown matt maw rawr Campus shenanigans are only half the fun in Moscow. Hit up these hotspots to get connected and have a blast beyond campus borders.

Bucer’s Coffeehouse Pub This Main Street coffee shop opened 12 years ago and boasts in-house roasted coffee with a roaster from Turkey. There’s also an assortment of cookies, cakes, sandwiches, soups and other delights. All but the cookies are crafted in-store from scratch, said Pat Greenfield, Bucer’s owner. The shelves of old books lining the walls are mostly there for ambience, Greenfield said, but they are all for sale. The Wi-Fi Internet connection is acceptable, and the atmosphere created by the books and leather chairs lends itself to studying. All the food is available until closing time, she said. “Students can be ravenously hungry at 10 p.m.,” Greenfield said. All ages and types of people are welcome according to Greenfield. She said she enjoys the multicultural elements of Moscow. Bucer’s also offers live music on weekends without cover charges, and open jazz jam sessions take place Thursdays for the intrepid performer. “I want (newcomers) to know they can have fun here, too,” Greenfield said. “It’s not just for studying.” Bucer’s Coffeehouse Pub is open during the school year from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. M-Th and until midnight Friday and Saturday and is closed on Sunday.

Nuart Theater The Nuart Theater, located on Main Street, offers every-

thing from music to movies, espresso and existential conversation. Manager Eric Engerbretson said it’s a unique open-mic venue with weekly Monday night sessions. “It’s the only open-mic place I’ve ever heard of with all the instruments (readily) available – drums, electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar (and) keyboard,” he said. He said the lobby is like a small coffee house with a stage for live music, and books on spirituality and philosophy that span shelves along the walls. With $1.00 Americanos and $1.50 small lattes, he said the Nuart provides the cheapest quality espresso in town, which comes from Cravens Coffee in Spokane. A larger stage and a 30-ft. movie screen lie behind the lobby, with HD resolution capability and room for 500 people. Free movies are shown Fridays at 7 p.m. Sports are also broadcast on the screen – including this year’s televised Idaho Vandals games – and the Nuart will display the Olympics opening ceremonies. “It’s really cool to watch a major sporting event when you have half of a big crowd rooting for one team, and half for the other,” Engerbretson said. Nuart Theater is open from noon to 8 p.m. M-F and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Pie Hole Pizza Some night-time adventures in Moscow may not be complete without a slice of pizza and a chalk drawing in the bathroom. Pie Hole Pizza, located on 2nd Street just off of Main, provides both. Assistant Manager Zach Glaze said the bathrooms at this pizza place have chalk

All the school’s a stage UI theater and Office of Multicultural Affairs office provide numerous on-campus entertainment opportunities molly spencer rawr Among many other organizations on campus, the theater department and the office of multicultural affairs have a lot to offer students, starting fall semester.

Alexiss Turner, administrative assistant to the theater and film department said that during the summer her department becomes the Idaho Reparatory Theatre. “It’s our professional theater company and residence,” Turner said. “We’re the only college that has one in Idaho.” The summer program, IRT was founded 59 years ago. The point of the program is to give students a chance to work with professional actors, directors and designers, as well as bring the professional theatre into the community. This year, IRT had a short season due to the remodel of the Hartung Theatre. The pulley system used in the theatre to fly objects and people across stage needed to be renovated and replaced with stronger materials. In August, they will have their last production; “Circle Mirror Transformation.” “It will open August 16 through the 26, and it is a contemporary drama set in the theater classroom, so you get to watch all these people from different walks of life come together and play these sort of interesting theater games, watch how they interact, and get an idea of what really creates great theater. On August 10, IRT will have their backstage barbeque. We’ve had it every year, it’s kind of our opening celebration to open up the season. “But since we had such a short season, we are using the

event to celebrate the completion of the renovation. We will be having theater tours and free food for everyone. You can also get a sneak peak of Circle Transformation,” Turner said. To kick off the academic year, there’s a production written by Jane Martin titled, “Anton in Show Business.” “It’s a really interesting play in that there are 13 women in it. Six principle women who have all the minds. And then seven women who are called changers and movers,” David Lee Painter said. Painter said the play is known as being a comedy, which he doesn’t find fair. “It’s very political and it’s got a lot of satire in there. I think the primary issue is ‘what do you value’ in terms of; where do we put our money?” he said. “Martin is asking us to decide if we really value art, or if we say we value art but don’t support it.” The first production of the semester will run Sept. 27 through Oct. 7. “I think audiences will really love it because it’s provocative, and it’s so funny. It’ll be interesting to see actresses play roles in it they don’t usually get to play,” Painter said.

Multicultural affairs Leathia Botello, coordinator for the office of multicultural affairs, said they work closely with about 18 student organizations. Those organizations range from multicultural Greek students, to different academic, multicultural groups. On August 18, OMA will be invited to the diversity, equity and community (DEC) “welcome back” barbeque, Botello said. The on-campus offices participating in the barbeque will

Down the right path Idaho Trails Association invests in nature chloe rambo rawr There’s no age limit on loving nature. You won’t get carded at the trailhead nor will you be turned away if deemed “too old.” One can volunteer for the Idaho Trails Association at any age — all that’s required is hard work and a love for maintaining Idaho’s trails. “It’s fun, rewarding and a great way to give back,” said Dwight Allen, volunteer for the ITA. Allen has lived in the Idaho area for nearly 40 years. Unlike his home state of New York, he said he loves how the state of Idaho has a venue for nearly every kind of outdoor activity. “Here, anything you want to do—except maybe go swim in the ocean—you can do,” Allen said. Even though Allen is retired, he said he still enjoys being involved with the ITA because the natural environment of Idaho is beautiful, and there’s no better experience than helping improve it for others. The ITA’s main goal is to encourage the enjoyment of Idaho’s backcountry, but that’s not the non-profit group’s only focus. The ITA collects funds and volunteers, and puts them together to generate work crews for trail maintenance projects. Last year, the ITA cleared nearly 200 downed logs from trails, constructed two new trail bridges, and forged two miles of new hiking trails in the Boise National Forest. This year, the organization has hopes of opening up and preserving even more of Idaho’s trails. “It’s something you never realize—it never really dawns on you the work that goes

more information To learn more about upcoming events and projects, visit into these trails,” Allen said. “We hear people say, ‘There’s another tree down,’ but we never realize the work that went into making (the trail) to begin with.” Allen said there is only enough funding to cover maintenance for 15 percent of Idaho’s hiking trails, making volunteers an important asset to the ITA. “Being able to do it because you want to, not because you need to (is great),” Allen said. “You’re not being paid for it, except in good karma.” In 2011, Allen was named ITA Volunteer of the Year for his hard work, involvement and showing up for more trail projects than any other ITA volunteer. He was the first ever recipient of the award. “I’d like to get more people involved because it’s a lot of fun,” Allen said. While the ITA is a non-profit, there is a board of directors heading up the organization. ITA Trail Project Coordinator Susan McVey organizes maintenance projects, and found herself working in an area she really loved. McVey said she discovered the beauty of Idaho’s natural landscape after working with a conservation program in Boise. “It’s just a beautiful place,” McVey said. “(Boise) feels community oriented, but there are still so many things going on.” McVey said a large part of her job is dedicated to the

Top: P. Harris and the Sexual Harrisment open for Silent Theory Saturday at the Bell Tower in Pullman. They are just one of many area indie bands that the Bell Tower and Stereopathic are trying to attract to Pullman. Bottom: Creston White screams out a solo on saxaphone during the opening number. Left: Patrick Harris, the groups frontman, contributed a variety of musical stylings including vocals, strings and harmonica.

For whom the bell tolls

The Bell Tower concert house and Stereopathic bring up-and-coming artists to the Palouse all year molly spencer rawr The Bell Tower in Pullman, Wa. is the only dedicated concert house on the Palouse. It is a renovated chapel that was built in the 1920s, Andrew Forsman, general manager said. “It’s got a lot of character,” Forsman said. Forsman oversees the private events at the Bell Tower such as weddings, receptions, and fraternity and sorority formal events.

When it comes to music, many of the shows at the Bell Tower are booked by Larson Hicks, owner of Stereopathic. “Probably 80 percent of the shows we do are through Stereopathic. We’ll do some hiphop shows. We’ve got a metal show in August,” Forsman said. “There’s actually a large metal fan base in Moscow professionally. We try to do a couple of those shows a year. “ However, Forsman said they are leaning more toward the indie rock and folk genres.

“Stuff you would see at your summer music festivals around the nation,” Forsman said. During the school year, the Bell Tower has six to eight shows each month. Stereopathic began booking concerts in 2008. Hicks’ company was initially one that would put on shows in the area from time to time. “In 2010 we started working with Bell Tower and over time the dynamic has changed where Bell Tower is putting on most of the shows and I’m

kind of doing more of the picking of the bands.” Because Bell Tower and Stereopathic have a limited market and a limited number of dates to book shows, Hicks said he tries to stick with scheduling bands he really loves. And tends to focus exclusively on indie, folk and indie rock...what he finds to be top notch and what will help Bell Tower and Stereopathic head toward a growing, more successful direction. Some notable bands that

have played recently at Bell Tower are STRFKR, Blue Scholars, Blind Pilot and other bands that toured with the Tender Loving Empire Festival in April. “Every concert is an awesome experience and something that we will never forget,” Hicks said. Tiffany Harms plays the bassoon in the local band, Buffalo Death Beam. More than once, her band has performed at the Bell Tower.

True colors

No Kidding

Metal band Baroness finally produces two quality albums The band Baroness does not seem to repeat themselves— ever. It seems the Georgia based quartet is a bit shifty that way. The band is notorious for finding a sound, fiddling with it, honing it, then leaving it behind to discover something sonically new. Although the band’s frontman, John Baizley, anthony screamed most of his lyrics, his knack for melody was all over previous Baroness records—and this development can be seen in the group’s newest offering, “Yellow and Green.” This record finds Baroness soldiering into full-on melodic territory, embracing space and

mood rather than the bombastic approach of previous efforts. In addition, Baizley sings more than he screams, but the melody is still there. This has put Baroness in an interesting position. Some fans are going to be alienated. Some will say that Baroness is getting soft. In fact, in the cutthroat world of metal fandom, “Yellow Green” is a death saia and wish. That is irrelevant rawr though. Of course the band wants fans to listen to the record, but it seems that they have no interest in fulfilling anyones expectations but their own. Baroness might wield some pretty hefty heavy metal weaponry—the beards, fuzz-out power chords and fantastical


motifs Baroness and cover art—but it seems that they think like art rockers, never satisfied with Yellow and Green following available now a pre-conditioned formula or re-visiting and reimagining past efforts. “Yellow” commences with a thematic introduction before launching into the lead single “Take My Bones Away,” a driving, sour anthem that has as much radio rock as it does metal. There are progressive keyboard flourishes, buildups, dropouts and lyrics about pills. Baroness is known to cram a

The rest of the Yellow side sway back and forth between loud moments and gentle ones before downshifting into the Green record. The tempos are much slower and the songs are less immediate on Green and following the “Green Theme”, the song “Board Up the House” kicks off with a plodding bassline and Baizley crooning. The band’s second guitarist, Pete Adams also does some experimenting on this side as well. When Baizley’s melodies fall flat, Adams’ twangy fills and layered effects provide a unique safety net.

as one. It is imperative that listeners make this distinction as well, because Baroness did not do this arbitrarily, as each side has its own vibe. The record is nearly 80 minutes in length and might seem daunting to some. Ultimately, dividing it in half—the way it is supposed to be experienced might be the best way to listen to it. Of course the “Yellow” side is day to “Green’s” night but they are mutually exclusive. The tracks are sequenced for maximum effect too, as they flow into one another via crossfades, interludes and solid production. Ultimately, this artsy approach might be off-putting for long time Baroness fans, but so be it. Baroness has the capability to discern melodies, have unpredictable songwriting and vision for their work. Yellow & Green encapsulates all of those traits, and may just be one of this year’s most engaging hard rock records. Anthony Saia can be reached at
