Today I finally signed the lease on the house I will live in for the next year, and I couldnâ€™t be more excited. My excitement, I think, stems from a desire to leave my current apartment. After two years, I have slowly but surely moved nearly all of my belongings from home into it, and my bedroom has begun to overflow. Clothes for all seasons are strewn across the floor. Books from past semesters remain in the desk drawers. Water bills that I paid several months ago sit atop the desk. Loose change that I probably dropped over a year ago can be found in various corners of my bedroom. Itâ€™s a cluttered mess and I donâ€™t know how to begin cleaning it. Though I love my current apartment and think itâ€™s nice, its appearance has become bland and unremarkable over time. The white floors, beige carpet and white walls donâ€™t have a great deal of personality, aside from my incredibly â€œcollege-yâ€? decorations: frameless posters of Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and Will Ferrell; a record player; and some obviously fake plants. After living in the Campustown area of Champaign in a large apartment building, it will be nice to move into a house in a quieter area of Urbana, far from the always bumping Red Lion and the 309 Green wind tunnel. In my current building, I can hear people shouting, entering and leaving their apartments, drunkenly fighting or running through the halls at pretty much all hours. In the house, if my upstairs neighbors decide to start stomping at random times throughout the day, itâ€™ll be my friends that Iâ€™m telling to shut up rather than some strangers. Iâ€™ll have more space to myself and a larger area to convene with my roommates and friends. Iâ€™ll have a porch, a basement, stairs and eight other housemates. Iâ€™ll have a yard, perhaps the biggest amenity an apartment-dweller misses out on. Iâ€™ll also be living with seven new people that I am excited to get to know better. Living with someone certainly changes the dynamic of a friendship. Walking around Urbana and seeing trees and old houses in every direction is an incredibly peaceful way to pass the time that I currently do not get to experience as often as I would like. When the weatherâ€™s nice, I canâ€™t think of anything Iâ€™d rather do. I still remember my first day in my current apartment. It was two years ago, but so much has changed in that short amount of time. I canâ€™t wait to see what goes down in my new place. Thereâ€™s only about a month until I get to call it my home.

Âť Driving a minivan: I assumed
LATE SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS BY DAVID ROBERTSON If youâ€™re tired of swimming, thereâ€™s no better way to beat the heat than in a cool, air-conditioned movie theater. With the Savoy 16â€™s recent renovations and the addition of an IMAX auditorium, the movie-going experience in Champaign-Urbana has never been better. There are a few flicks slated for release in July and August that you wonâ€™t want to miss on the big screen. Hitting theaters July 26 is Marvelâ€™s superhero reboot The Wolverine, staring Hugh Jackman. This installment promises to be truer to the heroâ€™s roots and comic book origins, which should please diehard X-Men fans while also offering up plenty of action and spectacle for general audiences. Horror fans are in luck because they donâ€™t have to wait until the Halloween season for the latest fright flick from James Wan, the mastermind behind Saw and Insidious. His film The Conjuring, based on the case files of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, opens July 19. It is already being hailed as a modern horror classic by critics and audiences alike. On August 9, the comedy Weâ€™re the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, opens against the sequel book adaptation Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Several more sure-to-be hits are coming soon to theaters, including RED 2 (7/19), Elysium (8/9), Kick-Ass 2 (8/16) and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (8/23). Donâ€™t forget your popcorn and soda!

that driving my parentsâ€™ gray minivan over the summer was going to be lame. Itâ€™s not a pretty vehicle. Itâ€™s big and gray, basically the whale of the road. Aside from being on the receiving end of a few amusing pedophile jokes from friends, I didnâ€™t see how it would be any fun. Now, I know better. Thereâ€™s nothing like driving down Green Street in a minivan, blasting Third Eye Blind and cutting cars off left and right. The beauty of the minivan lies in its lameness. It gives you the freedom to do every uncool thing youâ€™ve ever wanted to do. For the most part, other cars are eager to give you a free pass. They assume youâ€™re a soccer mom and itâ€™s a universally known fact that you donâ€™t fuck with soccer moms on the road. So next time you start taking yourself too seriously or want to blow off some steam, drive a minivan and sing your heart out to Adele. You wonâ€™t regret it.
Assistant Music Editor
Âť blink-182: Unlike most other pubescent boys, my first true love were three grown men with loud guitars and an irreverent sense of humor. I fell hard for the dick jokes, dad jokes and the SoCal camaraderie after I was introduced to their live record, The Enema Strikes Back. They inspired me to learn guitar, start a shitty band with my best friend and waste an entire summer trying to skateboard. I never quite got the hang of it. When they broke up in the spring of 2005, I was devastated. I enjoyed the musical projects that came out of that hiatus â€” Tomâ€™s space-epic Angels & Airwaves, Mark and Travisâ€™ blink emulation (+44) â€” but none of that measured up to my expectations for their first post-hiatus record, Neighborhoods. Iâ€™ll never understand how the same band that made the punk opus that was 2003â€™s selftitled record could come back only a few years later with the colossal disappointment that was Neighborhoods. I have to admit itâ€™s grown on me a bit, but nothing will measure up to the blink-182 I first fell in love with. I only hope that some day I can try the mexican food at Sombrero.

rom The Twilight Saga to the 2011 remake of Fright Night to HBO’s True Blood, the vampire has been a cornerstone in the entertainment industry over the past few years. Audiences never seem to tire of the themes of forbidden love, eroticism and immortality that these narratives offer. The Twilight Saga is one of the highest-grossing franchises of all time, each installment matching or topping the box office haul of its predecessor. Nonetheless, the number of vampire flicks has declined steeply this past year after the amount of vampires in entertainment reached overkill and box office prophets and ratings for the genre began to plummet. As the golden age of the vampire era reaches an end, creatives in Hollywood must figure out what other mythical creatures and characters engross audiences and would make a new lasting trend. Listed below are a few possibilities of what the next big trend in movies and television could be. » Zombies: Zombies have always been a prevalent subject in horror films, but recently they’ve crossed over into other genres. Following the enormous success of the 2009 comedy Zombieland, which grossed north of $70 million at the domestic box office, the popularity and complexity of zombie tales have increased exponentially. AMC’s TV series The Walking Dead, which debuted in 2010, was a surprise hit and is currently one of the mostwatched shows on cable. In 2013, zombies are being portrayed as more dimensional creatures, not just emotionless, brain-devouring corpses. Warm Bodies, a zombie rom-com, was funny and heartfelt, and not to mention a financial success for Summit Entertain-

ment, scoring over $60 million in ticket sales. A few months later, Paramount made a summer tent-pole out of the long-delayed zombie pic World War Z, a big-budget PG-13 action-adventure, contradicting genre norms of small budgets and excessive gore. With several more zombie flicks on the way, including R.I.P.D. and 19, Hollywood already seems to have a trend started with the undead. » Witches: Harry Potter proved that potions, spell books and broomsticks can set fire to the box office, but could female witches have the same appeal as a boy wizard? Hollywood seems to think so. 2013 has already brought about three films featuring witches as central characters: adult fairytale Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, teen romance Beautiful Creatures and family adventure Oz the Great and Powerful. The witches in these movies are being portrayed in a pretty standard way for the most part: most are evil, part of a coven or family, donning black hats, long fingernails, discolored faces and of course magical powers. Beautiful Creatures was a flop, Hansel & Gretel a moderate success and Oz a box office behemoth (but mostly because of the familiar story and brand), thus it’s difficult to know whether or not witches will be able to cast a lasting spell over audiences. A movie adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Witches is due in theaters this winter and American Horror Story: Coven arrives on FX in October, so expect witches to become a new trend in entertainment if both of these are successful. » Masked Killers: Killers certainly make for a thrilling premise, but if they wear a mask, the story becomes twice as intriguing and opens
up the opportunity for merchandise tie-ins and Halloween costumes galore. The Strangers, a popular horror movie from 2008, reminded viewers how a simple facial disguise can make a villain tremendously more fearsome and his victims more helpless. In 2011, Scream 4 marked the return of the iconic mask Ghostface and supposedly the beginning of a new Scream trilogy. In 2012, Bloodyface was a mask-wearing character featured extensively in American Horror Story. Finally, low-budget horror flick The Purge latched on to the trend and pits a family of four against a syndicate of masked killers. Last month, the film premiered to almost $40 million on its opening weekend, a record for an R-rated horror movie. The possibility of this trend catching on in full force across genres is unlikely, but you never know what kind of creative genre bending might occur in movies and television today, so I wouldn’t write off the possibility of a masked murderer takeover just yet. Due in August, You’re Next is yet another picture centered on criminals who disguise their faces. Gods, mermaids and clowns could also make exciting industry-wide trends but haven’t yet had the exposure of the three aforementioned topics. I mean, when was the last time you saw a movie about mermaids? Aquamarine in 2006? Perhaps in 2014 we will see an onslaught of movies and TV shows about a subject no one could have ever predicted to be popular. That’s what makes trend forecasting so fun and keeps the entertainment industry brimming with original ideas.
SMELL THE ROSES
Interview with University groundskeeper Chad Garrett BY WILL HUBBS
ou’re walking aross the Quad. The breeze rustles the leaves of the trees as the smell of freshly mown grass tickles your nose. The sky is a baby blue color and the clouds are shaped like marshmallows. It’s simply a breathtaking
day. But have you ever stopped and thought to yourself, just how much work goes into maintaining our campus? From keeping the sidewalks clear of ice and snow in the winter so hungover college students can safely make their way to

class, to planting flowers and patching pot holes, the grounds department at the University of Illinois works hard every day to make the campus an oasis of peace in an otherwise noisy world. In order to get a better understanding of just what goes into maintaining the campus grounds, I interviewed Chad Garrett, a member of the University's Facilities and Services' grounds department. Garrett has been helping to beautify the campus for almost four years and is directly responsible for maintaining the area around McKinley Health Center. This entails a wide variety of different tasks ranging from general sanitation to eliminating pests to trimming trees and bushes. According to Garrett, the most difficult part of his job is dealing with the weather. As a member of the grounds department, Garrett is often required to be outside in extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, possibly with rain or snow. While there are parts of his job that are difficult, at the end of the day, Garrett finds his work to be rewarding. In response to what his favorite aspect of the job was, Garrett said, "The personal satisfaction which comes from seeing the work you put forth improve
the campus." In the winter, Garrett works to remove the ice and snow that could severely hamper or even endanger students when they are attempting to reach the McKinley Health Center. He also patches pot holes in the road and clears debris, such as leaves and carelessly thrown coffee cups, from the street drains. This ensures that rain water does not build up in the roads around campus and make them impassable. While there might not be any snow to shovel or snowballs to dodge during the summer, it is still a very busy time for the grounds department. During the summer months, the big project the members of the grounds department are working on is their annual flower and spring tree plantings. The difficulty of this project comes from the fact that there is simply so much ground to cover. In addition, all these plants require monitoring long after they are planted to ensure they are getting the right amount of water. So to Garrett and all of the other members of the grounds department, we thank you for working hard to make our campus look as spectacular as it does.
HOOPING IN CU
An interview with Hoopnotica instructor Jamie Smith BY ALYSSA DAVISON
you’re like most of the American population, the thought of exercise can be arduous in itself. The American Cancer Society promotes this notion with the statistic that 40 percent of women would exercise more if it felt like less of a chore. In a time of boring workout regimes, Hoopnotica is sweeping the nation as a fun new way to get in shape. Hoopnotica, a California-based company and exercise phenomenon, is a low-impact, high-cardio fusion of hula hooping and dance that boasts weight loss stories of up to 140 pounds. Jamie Smith, a local Hoopnotica instructor at Evolve Fitness (508 N. Neil St. , Champaign) says hooping is growing in popularity as a form of artistic expression and is a rewarding way to get fit both physically, spiritually and mentally. While the image of a hula hoop may conjure up youthful memories for some, Jamie says that hooping is for everyone of all age groups. » buzz: So what exactly are the benefits of hula hooping? » Jamie Smith: Physically, hooping for one hour burns 400-600 calories, but there are more than just physical benefits. In my class, I teach the various power points on your body which are the points you use to keep the hoop up. » buzz: So it’s more of a full-body experience? » JM: Yes, it’s the alignment of physical and emotional to spiritual. In my class, we focus on the
oneness of the body to the movement of the hoop. » buzz: What does your class entail? » JM: I’m certified to teach Hoopnotica Hoopdance level one and Hoopnotica Hoopfit, which is a fusion of dance and hoop fitness. We focus on squats, waist and hip hooping, and basic corkscrews which involve taking the hoop on and off of the body. We exercise the arms, back and legs. Hooping is one of the only workouts that gets your transabdominal region. The whole class, while being an intensive workout for the body, is also low impact. This means it can really be for anyone. We have a lot of fun during class. The group ends up becoming tight-knit, which means there’s a sense of community between the hoopers in my class. We’re all at different levels, but we encourage each other’s growth. It’s fun and laid back. » buzz: What if someone is a hula hooping virgin? Would your class be open to them? » JM: Yes, hooping is for everyone. I’ve centered the class to make it fun and easy for everyone, even if they believe they can’t hoop. In my class, I’ve had every age group, from every experience level. Whether you have never picked up a hoop or you are already familiar with the movements, everyone is encouraged to come. People with back problems are welcome because it opens up the movement of the spine. Men are just as welcome as women. The hooping community

is all-inclusive. We really encourage everyone to get involved. » buzz: How can people get involved in this class, and what should they wear? » JM: If you’re a member of Evolve Fitness, then the class is free. Otherwise, you can buy a pass of five classes for $40. The hoop likes to stick to skin or natural fibers, so it’s best to wear form fitting clothing — wherever your comfort level is at. Just nothing like polyester or jeans as the hoop doesn’t stick well to those materials. » buzz: Do they need to bring their own hoops? » JM: No. I provide handmade hoops for people to
use during class. I also sell the handmade hoops, if people want to buy them to practice outside of class. » buzz: What are some other ways to be involved in hooping? » JM: I really want people to understand hooping and to like it. I’m willing to help people outside of class, and there are other ways for people to get involved as well. There is another hoop dance class at Parkland, taught by my friend Kimberly Leskivisek. Once you understand hooping, it can really be utilized anywhere. Jamie’s class takes place at Evolve Fitness, Saturdays from noon to 1 p.m. July 11-17, 2013 buzz 5

Wine tasting and music at Krannert Uncorked BY CATIE MANGANELLI
Photo by Daren Eiri
very Thursday from approximately 5-7 p.m., the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts opens its doors to the public for its weekly wine sampling event: Krannert Uncorked. For almost 10 years now, this event has been highly regarded among attendees and contributing businesses. Bridget Lee-Calfas, the advertising and publicity director for Krannert Center, discussed the humble beginning and evolution of this event. “It began as a way to welcome all aspects of the community and University into our facilities while celebrating the incredible array of local musical talent and highlighting our many fantastic beverage distributors and restaurants,” Lee-Calfas said. “Over the years, we have used this vehicle for other special events, pairing with other campus and community partners so that they too can use the event to promote creative thinking and problem solving — celebrate the arts and gather diverse aspects of our collective together." A typical evening at Krannert Uncorked varies

for everyone. Students who come by will often be found studying for an exam or relaxing with friends. Patrons over 21 are free to sample from the collections of wine supplied by that evening’s wine partner. The complimentary cheese and crackers, live entertainment and the social, eclectic atmosphere of the Krannert Center make for a fun and interesting environment enjoyed by people of all ages. Emily Turner, University junior and Krannert Uncorked frequenter, said, “Although I can’t partake in the sampling, I’ve started coming to the Krannert Center Thursday nights with some of my friends so we can hang out and study. I’ve heard a lot of great music and one of the best parts of this event, especially as a college student on a budget, is the price: free!” As suspected, one of the major draws for this event is the opportunity to sample different wines and other beverages from a variety of local distributers. Regarding these businesses and how Krannert
Uncorked came to partner with them, Lee-Calfas said, “There is a different partner each week, some are shops, some are restaurants, some we have sought out and others have come to us wanting to take part.” This event, though, is just as fun for the vendors as it is the patrons. It gives them a chance to build on existing client relationships, as some individuals attend specific nights based on their favorite distributor. Krannert Uncorked also provides a different type of advertising and visibility for these businesses, allowing them the opportunity to meet and discuss their products with new and interested customers. In recent weeks, several wine partners, both established and up and coming, have made appearances at the Krannert event including Friar Tuck, Corkscrew Wine Emporium and Sleepy Creek Vineyards. This month, as expected, brings forth an assortment of names like Big Grove Tavern this Thursday, July 11, and Piccadilly Beverage Shop and Sun Singer Wines and
Spirits to conclude July’s festivities. One of the most popular elements of Krannert Uncorked is the live entertainment. During the academic year, artists only play on the first and third Thursdays of each month. In the summer, there is live music every week. The genres of the musical artists vary from bluegrass, folk and indie to blues, jazz and even ragtime piano. These acts serve as perfect accompaniments to wine and conversation. On July 11, jazz artist Maurice McKinley will be returning to the Krannert stage. Another Uncorked favorite, singer, songwriter and guitarist Michael Kammin, will make an appearance on July 18 and Tania Combs and the George Turner Trio will be performing on July 25. In upcoming weeks, applications for musical performers will be accepted. Contact Tammey Kikta at firstname.lastname@example.org for interest or inquiries. Additionally, contact the general director’s office at 217-333-6700 if you or your local business is interested in partnering with the event.

Meredith Setser’s 'Tunnel Vision' art exhibit BY ANWEN PARROTT

July 1, the Parkland Art Gallery welcomed Indianapolis-based artist Meredith Setser’s exhibit “Tunnel Vision.” July 11 will be a day jam-packed with events, which include a reception, workshop and lecture with the artist at Parkland College. Meredith Setser is a renowned printmaker and textile artist hailing from Wyandotte, Mich., but currently stationed in Indianapolis, where she teaches her craft at the Herron
School of Art and Design at Indiana University. Setser attended both Edinboro University and Indiana University for her undergraduate education, graduating with a bachelor of fine arts in 1997. She continued her education at University of Wisconsin—Madison, where she graduated with her master of fine arts in 2004. Since then, the prolific artist has attended conferences and exhibited her work worldwide. A few recent shows include the Qijiang Interna-
tional Print Exhibition in southwest China and the 12th Annual Washington Printmaker’s Small Print Exhibition in Washington, DC, and she has had solo exhibitions at Dittmar Gallery at Northwestern University; Open Studio Gallery in Toronto; Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, N.J.; Penang State Art Gallery, Malaysia; and the Museu de Arte de Brasilia, Brazil. Typical of her signature style, Setser’s “Tunnel Vision” exhibit involves various felt sculptures and installations. In Setser's statement for “Tun-
nel Vision,” she spoke about how her artistic process is inspired by “humankind’s increasing encroachment on natural habitats, which has resulted in urban settings where wildlife and people coexist in very close proximity to one another.” Speaking on her print artwork, Setser said, “My prints and printed installations attempt to celebrate the commonalities that exist between humans and animal species while at the same time posing questions about the ethics and surrounding consumption of natural resources.” Her use of copperplate etching, toile cotton fabric and other handmade fibers further helps to “tie together (her) use of medium and process.” On July 11, the busy day will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a lecture given by Meredith Setser. Following this lecture, which is sure to be engaging and informative, she will host a workshop from 1-4 p.m. in room S117 at Parkland College. In this workshop, Setser will lead participants through the art of Nuno Felting. This unique felting process involves laminating wool fiber onto an open-woven fabric base, and is a very popular method in the production of garments and accessories. Through the guidance of the very experienced and knowledgeable Setser, participants will create their own scarf made of merino wool and silk gauze. Following this interactive workshop, there will be a reception for the artist in the gallery from 6-8 p.m. A gallery talk will be given at 7 p.m. If you are unable to catch the opening reception at Parkland on July 11, Meredith Setser’s “Tunnel Vision” will be featured at the Parkland Art Gallery from July 1 to August 1. The gallery’s summer gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Abnormous’ Christmas light-lit basement practice space, the walls are covered with chalk and dry erase boards, and those boards are covered with song ideas — notes and chords and tempos — that the band is currently working through, all in pursuit of one thing: the groove. Whether they’re incorporating jazz, funk, R&B or electronic music into their songs, all seven members make sure each song grooves. According to singer and saxophonist Tim Miles, “We always ask ourselves the question: Can people dance to this?” The CU band have been making people dance around the Midwest for almost a year now, at both bars and house parties, as well as an appearance at Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Ill. They earned their spot there by winning Canopy Club’s Monday Night House Party Battle of the Bands with their explosively energetic stage presence and, of course, fan support. “We owe them the biggest high five,” said keyboardist Mike Myers.
Playing at Summer Camp was an opportunity to meet other musicians, gain some fans and get a taste of what it’s like to play a big festival in a place where, as Miles said, “everyone was so enthusiastic about music.” “We’d like to be on that kind of stage more and more,” said guitarist James Scherer. “At this early of a stage in our band, to be able to be part of something like that — you’re addicted now, it’s like, ‘I need to get back to that.’” With such danceable music and a unique combination of talent, it would be surprising if they didn’t. The seven-piece band is a mixture of non-formally trained musicians and University jazz majors, giving them an interesting approach to songwriting. “(Having a jazz background) totally arms you with another language to use,” said Matt Sulikowski, saxophonist, flutist and jazz major. He and Miles agreed that having that knowledge makes it easier to communicate in musical terms exactly what they mean. But Abnormous is a
“mixed couple,” and in the band, there is a place for both technicality and straight funk. “At the end of the day, whenever you take that unfettered soul and you send it through that technical filter, it comes out shiny,” Scherer said. Though they have several polished songs they regularly play live, Abnormous recently did their first two studio recordings of originals “Tonight” and “Mona” with Kevin Bourassa, who plays trumpet in Sun Stereo. Those songs will be available in CD form at their show Thursday night at Cowboy Monkey as part of Red Hot Summerfest before you can get them digitally. The band plans to do more recording in the near future, but meanwhile you can also catch them at Quad Day and, eventually, monthly stoplight parties at White Horse Inn. Every Abnormous show is a chance for the band to “expressolate” themselves. It’s their own word for, as Miles described it, “expressing oneself to make connections with others.” And it’s all done through the groove.

WORLD WAR Z
by Matt Jones
”Let Freestyle Reign”--who needs a theme?
BY BLAIZE STEWART
Used with permission from Paramount Pictures
low-moving, moaning and having a hankering for some fresh brains. That is how zombies would have been described by moviegoers back in the day. They were not particularly intimidating or scary; all the survivors would have to do is walk at a brisk pace and they would be home free. The zombies’ greatest asset was to attack in numbers, but even then they were fairly easy to escape from. Thankfully, zombie films have now evolved into something much more terrifying and realistic. The hit film World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, is a perfect example of a great modern zombie movie. Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a former United Nations employee who is thrown right into the middle of the zombie epidemic plaguing the world to help find a cure, or at the very least a way to combat the effects of the disease. There are some things that remain true to the standard zombie flick in World War Z. It is spread in a similar manner (biting, exchange of bodily fluids, etc.), the world pretty much falls apart as soon as the disease hits and there is apparently only one man who is able to figure out how to beat it. However, in this film, that guy dies pretty much right away (in a really unimpressive way as well), leaving Pitt’s character to try and figure out how to save humanity. All the while he has to fight off zombies, and not the ones that slowly creep up. These zombies are fast, aggressive and trying to infect as many humans as possible. The modern zombie is much more frightening in the fact that it is pretty much sprinting around 24/7. Not only do these things enjoy their cardio, but they also like to do it in large groups. Once they see something they want (like Pitt’s character), it’s like an avalanche of aggressive bodies determined to destroy him is unleashed. These zombies have ample amounts of opportunities to make Pitt one of their zombie pals in Asia, in Jerusalem, on an airplane — the list goes on. However, they are never quite able to sink their teeth into him, which means he eventually stumbles onto an idea of how to
save (in a sense) the world. The zombies provide plenty of awesome action scenes and tense moments, but that cannot make up for some major points in this movie that are left unexplained and confusing. Pitt’s solution to the zombie problem was somewhat disappointing. It made sense if you really think about it, and it makes way for a sequel (perhaps WWZ II?), but altogether it was not what one would call an epic finish. However anti-climactic the solution was, it still worked. But there was one major problem that was not adequately explained that detracted from the realism of the movie. It’s the wall that surrounds Jerusalem. They tried to explain it in the movie, but it was not satisfying. Basically, it was built because nine out of 10 guys thought nothing when they intercepted a radio transmission with the word “zombie” in it, but the tenth guy thought they should act on it. So they built big walls to protect their city and managed to keep the zombies out (until the zombies form a giant pile and make their way over). It didn’t make much sense in the movie, perhaps it is explained better in the novel off of which the movie is based. Despite these issues, World War Z is still a great movie to watch. Even for someone who isn’t interested in the underlying message, there is plenty to enjoy via action and horror. But for those looking for something a little bit more, like political messages and social commentary, they were left wanting more. There was a wealth of opportunities to make these issues come to light, but they were, for the most part, only touched on in a superficial manner. World War Z reached some of its potential, but did not capitalize on all of its opportunities. Still, it was an incredibly successful financial venture, grossing over $275 million worldwide. Seeing as the ending left way for a sequel, plus the financial success of this first movie, another one could easily hit theaters in the next few years. As long as it keeps the intensity of the zombies, it should be a hit, but there is still room for improvement.

am always looking for restaurants that serve delicious, authentic Korean food, so I was excited when my friend and I found “Korean Restaurant” boldly printed on the storefront of A-Ri-Rang (607 S. Wright St., Champaign). The artifice of the restaurant wasn’t very impressive and the inside decor was far from glamorous. There were a few wooden booths alongside the walls on each side, and a few wooden tables in the middle. Everything about the simplicity and lack of decor told us that this restaurant wasn’t interested in offering a glamorous, ostentatious experience, but good Korean food. My friend and I walked up to the counter where we were kindly greeted. As I looked through the menu lying on the counter, I found that A-Ri-Rang serves all the main traditional Korean dishes such as Kimchi Jjigae (kimchi stew) and Bulgogi (marinated beef). There was a wide and excellent range of Korean dishes that included various meats, stews, seafood, noodles and, of course, the classic fried rice dishes. I ordered one of my favorites, the Budae Jjigae, and my friend opted for the Bulgogi. The prices were relatively cheap as both our meals cost under $10. Once we received our ticket numbers for our meals, we picked up our drinks on the other end of the counter. Usually, Korean restaurants offer free hot tea, and A-RiRang is no exception. They had a hot barley tea that was soothing and refreshing for a rainy evening. The food was ready in 15 minutes on two trays. A couple side dishes accompanied our meal, such as Kimchi (spicy, fermented cabbage) and bean sprouts along with a bowl of white rice. The Budae Jjigae had everything a traditional Budae Jjigae is supposed to have: A hot, spicy soup base, kimchi, noodles, hot dog, dumplings, pork belly, rice cake and spam. The whole dish is a plethora of random ingredients, but it’s a delicious, casual Korean entree. I tried a couple pieces of my friend’s Bulgogi, and the marinated meat was wonderfully savory and flavorful, however, the meat could have been more tender and less salty. Although the Budae Jjigae and Bulgogi were mostly delicious and satisfying, I found the side dishes to be sub-par. We left the restaurant feeling satisfied. A-Ri-Rang is definitely a great place to grab a casual but delicious lunch or dinner with a couple of friends.
