ACC Police email Greek students about armed robberies BY Erica Techo The Red & Black An email regarding a new “Texting Campaign” to protect students from the dangers of north downtown Athens was sent Friday morning to some presidents of fraternities and sororities at the University. This email has not yet reached

University undergraduates who are not in a social fraternity or sorority. Lt. Terrie Patterson of the Crime Prevention Unit at Athens-Clarke County Police said the goal of this texting campaign is to protect students from becoming victim to an armed robbery in the area of north down-

town. “[The goal is] to reach as many students as possible to spread the word not to walk in north downtown because of armed robberies that have occurred and because of the escalation of force,” Patterson said. “This is an effort to prevent a murder to save a life. We want to get the

information out to as many persons as possible.” Patterson said many students who have been walking in the area of Bethel Midtown Village apartment complex have been victim to these armed robbery attacks. She said even though the attacks have not occurred in Bethel Midtown

Village, the attacks involve people who are related to that area. Robberies around the apartment complex occurred Sept. 29 and Oct. 6, according to ACC Police reports. Lt. Eric Dellinger of University Police said the texting campaign alert

What’s on tap? Students post secret pics of campus hotties

BY Cailin O’Brien The Red & Black

Two freshmen students created a Tumblr blog dedicated to sneaky phone camera pictures of attractive University men. The counterpart — ‘tappable’ University women — was not deemed funny, but creepy. Courtesy TapThatUGAguy BY Julia Carpenter The Red & Black Serena and Matilda were sitting inside the O-House dining hall when they were visited by a creature from another world. “We spotted this — just this absolute Adonis, who was shirtless,” Matilda said. “We couldn’t help ourselves, we had to take pictures of him.” The pictures of the clueless coed made their way online, to a micro-

blog Serena and Matilda created to share such otherworldy sightings with other google-eyed girls. Within two weeks of the O-House event, tapthatugaguy.tumblr.com had attracted 1,000 followers on Tumblr. And after two months, the following blossomed even more. The accompanying Twitter account, @tapthatUGAguy, follows 38 users — but has 1,224 followers itself. “It’s our little love child,” Matilda said. “First day of classes, we noticed

how gorgeous everyone is here.” Serena and Matilda aren’t their real names, either. Tumblr followers have gleaned certain facts — both creators are female freshmen, they frequent the East Campus and Brumby-area haunts common to first-year students, they shop at Target voraciously — but otherwise Serena and Matilda have been careful to keep their identities secret. And that’s where the pseudonyms came in. See TAP, Page 13

The Georgia Athletic Association sold more student ticket packages than available seats this season, causing crowding at home football games as more students attended than in past seasons. “This season, every eligible student who requested a season ticket for football received one,” Ticket Operations Manager We n d y Whittington said. “We had a little over 18,000 requests from students and every one of those students received the full home season package.” The Athletic Association sets aside 18,026 student seats per home game. This year, fullseason tickets were award-

ed to 18,645, according to documents obtained by the Red & Black. This makes 629 more tickets than seats. University Chief of Police Jimmy Williamson said this isn’t a problem because they never have 100 percent attendance in the student section. “Historically, if only 80 percent of the students are showing up, would there be a problem offering 10 percent more students the availability to come to the game? No because we’d still be under the projected number of seats that would be occupied,” Williamson said. However, students contend that the games have been crowded as more fans have come, due to late-night game times and the team’s improved

Sanford seat snafu: more tickets, more problems BY CODY PACE The Red & Black

Kayla Holwick covered her face with her hands and gasped. “Holy crap,” she said. “That’s really unsettling.” Holwick had just learned that Transmetropolitan, a restaurant she frequents downtown, earned a failing health score of 69 in an inspection Sept. 21 before receiving a score of 89 Oct. 1, according to the Northeast Health District. “I’ve worked in the food industry, and in my opinion, getting anything less than an A is awful,” Holwick, said a junior economics major. “That’s extremely surprising, mainly because I assume if you have a clean outside that you have a clean inside.” Transmet’s 69 is the lowest score in Athens-Clarke County. At first, Transmetropolitan manager Max Talkovich said he didn’t “believe [they had] ever posted a 69.” But after hearing that the score had been posted online by the Northeast Health District, Talkovich said the 69 came as a result of many “minor things that all added up.” The Red & Black was unable to reach the Northeast Health District concerning how inspectors score restaurants, but University Food Services training specialist Kris Ingmundson said inspectors use a form that specifies a certain number of points to be deducted for each violation. “So they don’t get to choose [and say], ‘Oh, this isn’t that bad,’” she said. “If it’s a certain thing that’s wrong, it’s worth either four points, nine points, three or one.” Talkovich said Transmet’s health score of 69 came mostly from the smaller deductions — deductions the Northeast Health District’s website calls “non-critical violations.” “It had nothing to do with food temperature or the separation of the food or anything like that,” Talkovich said. “It was mostly really nitpicky health code things that even the health code inspector didn’t want to enforce because they were so trivial. It’s one of those things that you kind of had to do.”

HEALTH: Dining halls earn A’s on health inspections

GREEK: Police did not inform using Univ. LISTSERV ➤ From Page 1

➤ From Page 1 Transmetropolitan received one “critical” deduction for having bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods, according to the website, and a deduction for failing to keep insects, rodents and animals out of the restaurant. Restaurants receiving scores below 70 receive “a follow-up inspection within 10 days,” according to the health district. Talkovich said Transmet bumped up its health score in the follow-up inspection by fixing the “nitpicky” errors the inspector had noticed the first time. Freshman biological engineering major Levi Lewis has only eaten at Transmet once, but said he enjoyed the experience and was surprised to hear it had once received a failing health score. He said he probably still plans on eating there. Holwick said she might eat at Transmet again, but she would take a more cautious approach. Transmet was the only restaurant listed to receive a score below 70, but it was not the only restaurant in Athens to receive a follow-up visit. Bulldawg Pizza on South Milledge received a health score of 71 July 10 that it increased to 86 Aug. 7. Yoguri on College Avenue, Wendy’s on Barnett Shoals Road and Buddha Bar on East Broad Street all posted scores below 80. Yoguri received an 88 in a follow-up Sept. 4. But not all health scores in Athens make students cringe. Out of approximately 518 listed vendors, Athens lists 279 scores of 90 and up. 99 food-serving vendors received a perfect score of 100. All four University dining halls ranked among the 279 establishments to earn As on their health inspections.

was not sent out to the entire University campus due to a “breakdown in communication.” He said University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson’s office was not informed, and there was not enough time to send out the information before an employee at Athens-Clarke County Police had already sent out the email. “Typically, we would work with them to get information out,” Dellinger said. “This was a breakdown in communication, and it didn’t get cleared by the proper channels.” Wendy Jones, public affairs specialist at the University, said ArchNews, the University LISTSERV, is used to send out information which would affect the entire University community. She said University Police uses ArchNews to send out any messages for the entire community. “If there are any messages [University Police] want to send to the campus community, they send it through ArchNews,” Jones said. “That is unless it is an emergency, and that is when UGAAlert kicks in.” Patterson said the texting campaign was first sent out to the Greek community because Athens-Clarke County Police Department was able to gain access to its email addresses. She said students can still go downtown and go to the bars, but these students need to practice certain cautions. One safety tip is to not walk north of Hancock Avenue downtown.

Break the Silence aims to aid fight against domestic violence By Cailin O’Brien The Red & Black Project Safe, a non-profit organization helping to end domestic abuse, plans to begin a new initiative the week of Oct. 22 aimed at helping adolescents from 13 to 19 years old deal with and avoid dating violence. Project Safe intends for the initiative, called Break the Silence, to help provide teenagers with more options for seeking help with potentially dangerous dating situations, Executive Director Joan Prittie said. Brenetia AdamsRobinson, founder of Proverbial Peace Revived, a program that helps people deal “with past hurt and trauma,” told The Red & Black in an email that an “alarming” number of college students deal with domestic abuse issues. Approximately 57 percent of women who reported being in an abusive dating relationship said it occurred in college, Robinson wrote. Additionally, more than 24 percent of college freshmen and sophomores reported “extremely violent” dating encounters including “rape or the use of weapons against them,” she said. But Robinson and Prittie said most young college students fail to seek help for domestic violence issues. “What we’ve found is although we sometimes hear from kids in high school and early college students, we don’t hear from them that we know of in numbers that reflect the proportion of people that we know are experiencing dating violence,” Prittie said. The Red & Black reported four known rapes, two stalking attempts and one domestic violence complaint from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Both Prittie and Robinson agreed that

The Cottage is one place in Athens that provides victims of dating violence with intervention, advocacy, referrals and support. FILE/The Red & Black many young victims do not know where to turn for help dealing with these issues, but Prittie said some studentaged victims can also be intimidated by the traditional methods of seeking help. Project Safe usually encourages women looking for advice on dealing with dating violence to call its help hot line or to visit the Family Protection Center on Lexington Road. But Prittie said these methods might not work for younger victims. “Part of it is that maybe hot lines sound weird or strange or maybe like something that older people would do,” she said. P rittie said Breaking the Silence will provide young adults with a text helpline and an online chat website — two teenage-friendly alternatives to the traditional methods of contacting help. “We got the textline because texting is addictive. People [of college age] do it all the time,” she said. “That would be a more comfortable route.” Trained graduate students and younger volunteers that can more readily relate to the younger demographic will work with the text-line and the chat center, Prittie said. “We thought it would be a way to hopefully increase access to our services and information,” she said. “People would utilize the text-line.

She also said victims and friends should remember that domestic violence is “a pattern of behavior rather than a one-time event” and that there is no formula for avoiding violent domestic situations. Abnormal patterns of extreme jealousy, attempts to “take the relationship to the next level very quickly” and attempts to separate the victim from her “normal support system of family and friends” could indicate a potentially abusive partner, Prittie said.

Call police, take steps in cases of stalking By Erica Techo The Red & Black Sometimes relationships get violent and sometimes they get creepy. If a person feels his or her wellbeing is in danger, it is possible to gain a protective order through the Athens-Clarke County Clerk of Courts. If a student, or any other person, feels they are victim to domestic violence or stalking, they can file for a protective order. A protective order for domestic violence is called a temporary protective order, or TPO, and a protective order against stalking is called a stalking order. Protective orders are available for three months, six months, one year, six years or permanently, and the orders are free to file for. Beverly Logan, clerk of the AthensClarke County Superior Court, said the difference between the two orders is a stalker may not have a personal relationship with the victim. “With stalking, it doesn’t have to be a domestic partner or the same household,” Logan said. “You could have someone stalking you and have no relationship with them.” To file for a TPO, the victim or petitioner and the defendant, who the order is taken out against, must live together or have a domestic relationship, such as foster parents or children or relatives. To be “living together” does not mean both parties must be listed

on the lease. Ross Faulkenberry, a court clerk, said a temporary living situation exemplified through a toothbrush or clothing left at a significant other’s house can count as “living together.” In order to file for a protective order in Athens-Clarke County, the defendant must be a resident of the county. The petitioner can go to the civil division of the court to fill out paperwork for the order. The paperwork is the petition for the order, which is presented to a judge after it is completed. For the petition, the victim must be 18 years old or older and present a driver’s license. The victim also needs to have an address where the defendant can be served the order. Faulkenberry said this does not necessarily need to be a home address for the defendant. This can be a place they are known to be residing. He also emphasized the importance of bringing in evidence. “Evidence is always helpful,” Faulkenberry said. “You have to give enough information to get in front of a judge.” Other information included on the petition includes a description of the defendant, accounts of events of violence or stalking and a protected party list. After the petition is filed, Faulkenberry said a judge is presented with the protective order.

The judge then evaluates the petition and decides whether he will decline or sign the petition. If it is signed, a hearing date is set and the protective order is considered active until the hearing date. Faulkenberry said the hearing is set within 30 days of the petition being signed. The defendant is served the protective order, which will inform him or her of how far away they must be from the petitioner and the hearing date for the order. If the defendant violates a TPO before the hearing date, they can be arrested and taken to jail, Faulkenberry said. At the hearing, both the petitioner and the defendant have the chance to present their sides of the case. After reviewing both sides, the judge can decide if the protective order will remain in effect or if it will be dismissed. Faulkenberry said it is important to appear on the hearing date as the petitioner because not appearing may lead the judge to doubt the seriousness of the case. This could lead to the petition being dismissed by the judge. “If you need protection, show up on the hearing date or else it’s hard to take [the petition] seriously,” Faulkenberry said. If the protective order is signed, the order is entered into a registry so it's available to police officers.

T

Time to speak Students must look out for each other, promote campus safety Since Aug. 7, 10 rapes and three cases of stalking have been reported on campus. Many of the victims are University students, and almost all of them had a previous relationship with the perpetrator. Which is not uncommon — most rapists and stalkers pick targets they know. The National Violence Against Women Survey found about 1 in 12 women and 1 in 45 men have been stalked during their lifetime. One third of these victims report being sexually assaulted by the perpetrator. Since domestic and intimate violence is most often perpetrated by people we know, reporting the crime can be hard. You might still have feelings for the person or your friends may not want to believe that person is capable of something so devastating. But there is nothing to gain from not reporting a stalker or rapist. What’s more, you may be saving another person’s life by speaking up. According to the National Violence Against Women Prevention Research Center, most people who commit sexual crimes are never caught. Usually people aren’t caught because evidence is hard to collect in rape and stalking cases. Sometimes, it’s because the victim does not feel secure enough to follow through with the charge. Sexual offenders and stalkers on campus will have few reasons to stop if students do not stand up for each other. We must be responsible for making campus safe for everyone. That means listening to people who have been victims, helping those people find counseling and legal support and making sure sexually violent behavior and thought isn’t sanctioned among our personal circles. If anyone keeps track of your movements, or if you are being threatened by someone, report them. If you have a friend who is being threatened, or if you see stalking behavior from someone you know, report that person. No matter what. No matter who. Our community is only as safe as we attempt to make it. — Tiffany Stevens is the variety editor of The Red & Black

Democrats prefer fantasy to substance on economic issues

I

magine for a moment that you are a big fan of big government, utterly convinced that there is little upwards mobility in the United States and that the only way to shatter our society’s rigid class structure is by way of mass government redistribution. If redistributive justice was your goal, you would want lots of tax revenue to fund your transfer programs. Now imagine a scenario: you have the opportunity to increase the tax rate for capital gains from 15 percent to 28 percent. The tax increase will be fairly progressive, but history — on at least three occasions — warns that raising the tax will distort incentives so much that it will bring in less revenue to the federal government. So what do you do, Statist Sam? Raise the tax or keep it as is? The rational answer, of course, would be to leave the capital gains rate alone. Raising it only to bring in less revenue would be the equivalent of taking money from rich people and bulldozing it into the ocean. It may give you some smug sense of satisfaction — you gave the bastards their comeuppance! — but no one, rich or poor, would be better off for it. In fact, in the aftermath the rich would have considerably less cash on hand to turn into job-generating investments and charitable donations. Everyone would be worse off under the high-tax regime. Of course, not everyone thinks through their policy positions so thoroughly. One such individual is then-Senator, now-President Barack Obama who, when asked during a primary debate in 2008 about the exact same scenario, answered that he would raise the capital gains tax “for purposes of fairness.”

Blake Seitz

Opinions Editor

The quote is jarring for a number of reasons, but I was willing to discount it as an off-the-cuff oversight. Jump forward four years, and the campaign antics of many on the Left indicate that irrational and emotion-laden “policy” (give the bastards their comeuppance!) is the order of the day. Look no further than the great foot-inmouth fabulist, Vice President Joe Biden. During the vice presidential debate Thursday night, somewhere in between throwing a geriatric tantrum and driving the dignity of his office (not to mention his ticket’s polling numbers among moderates and women) off a cliff, Biden blustered on about, among other things, "the super rich." After the abject failure of countless jobs packages and bailouts containing over $800 billion in taxes, the Left needs scapegoats, and they’ve found several foibles (Big Bird, fat cats et al.) to dangle in front of voters. This is an artful dodge to distract from the all-too-visible shortcomings of their policies the past few years. Let’s hope voters take them to task for it in November. — Blake Seitz is a junior from Dallas majoring in political science and public administration & policy

hey’re messy, stinky and they won’t ever leave your house — they’re your roommates, the people we all love to hate. If you are like most Atlanta suburbanites attending the University, you have spent most of your life occupying your own room and living in a house where the dishes somehow did themselves and the laundry smelled of wild flowers and fabric softener — those days of comfort are long gone. You will discover things about yourself that you never even knew when you live with someone else. For instance, the fact that you cannot be comfortable in a room with a temperature above 65 degrees while your roommate refuses to adjust the thermostat lower than 80. Let the thermostat war begins. You may develop a new intolerance for smells and messiness. It is one thing if your laundry is left in disarray across your room, but if your roommate leaves out one dirty sock, it’s game over — the nerve of that slob. Mom’s leftovers are a similar story. It’s a little taste of home for them and a gaseous toxic takeover for you. Keep the Febreze handy. Whether your roommate is your soulmate or a monster; whether you grow to love them or choose to run for the hills as soon as your lease is up — either way, roommates are the people who will populate the memories and stories of your college years. — Kathleen LaPorte is a junior from Decatur majoring in journalism and public affairs

Romney is lesser of two evils in presidential race

P

erhaps I’ve been too hard on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. I still maintain that Romney has few to no principles, and I do believe — even after the debate — he is running a much worse campaign than he could be. It is less about what I have said about Romney and more about what I have neglected to say about Barack Obama. With Obamacare, Dodd-Frank and his tendency to circumvent Congress with executive

orders, our rights are becoming increasingly nominal — our life, liberty and property apparently belong to everyone except ourselves. That is why I intend to vote for Mitt Romney. This is not the first time America has been faced with two unsavory choices for the presidency. Speaking of her position in the 1972 election between Republican Richard Nixon and Democrat George McGovern, Ayn Rand described herself as an “Anti-Nixonite for Nixon.”

Brian Underwood Guest Columnist

She was no “true believer” in Nixon, and actually wrote essays criticizing President Nixon on several occasions. Rather, she fully recognized the alternatives before her and decided to take her

chances with the less immediately dangerous of the two. There are only two potential winners in this election cycle. And although the GOP has little change to offer this time around, I’ll take my chances with a pragmatist over a nihilist any day. — Brian Underwood is a junior from Evans majoring in political science and history

‘TapthatUGAGuy’: new medium, old vice

Connor Land

Guest Columnist

Debating merits of pulling funding for public broadcasting Editor’s Note: This is the fourth installment of a weekly series authored by members of the Demosthenian Literary Society on resolutions debated at their meetings. Two sides of the resolution — an “affirmative” and a “negative” — will be presented in each installment. The Demosthenian Literary Society meets Thursdays at 7 p.m. in Demosthenian Hall. Affirmative When Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he wanted to cut federal funding for the Public Broadcasting Service, many recoiled in shock. They protested that the subsidies given to PBS account for less than one hundredth of one percent of discretionary spending. This figure looks even smaller when compared to the $2 trillion gift Mr. Romney wants to donate to the Pentagon. These details, however, do not an argument make. When used as the sole support for PBS’s subsidies, they amount to “PBS should keep federal funding because other things cost more.” I am not here to make that bare argument. I say that PBS’s programming constitutes a public good for this country. I say that PBS helps mold more compassionate, engaged and educated citizens — that the investment on PBS yields such a good return that our government is obligated to subsidize to whatever extent PBS requires. Despite the petty issues that mire debates around election season, we must keep basic things clear. Groups are subsidized by taxes when they are deemed essential to the general welfare of the country. Oftentimes, sadly, loopholes and subsidies go directly to things that need them least, such as the oil industry. That said, many sensible things are propped up with tax money. During the Great Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt commissioned the Hoover dam to be built by thousands of unemployed Americans. He knew that good business decisions could also be patriotic statements. So let’s make a business decision with our nation’s spare change. What does $450 million get us? It could buy us a couple hundred attack helicopters, sure. But put in the hands of PBS, it gives working class parents a chance to educate their kids. It makes our streets that much more safety when those smart kids then go on to college instead of jail. And it gives our country citizens who vote with the tolerance, compassion and knowledge that PBS’s programming inspires. This November, remember that PBS’s funding is more than a bank statement. It is an American statement. Negative During the Presidential debate, Governor Romney was right to say that the government has no place subsidizing the Public Broadcasting Network. He was also right to commend PBS for its programming. I stand with the candidate when I say that I love Big Bird. I also love Elmo, the values that Sesame Street inculcates in our children and the idea of educational kids shows. What I do not cotton to, however, is the idea that President Barack Obama’s camp is predicated upon: that PBS would not survive without Big Government giving it an allowance. Federal subsidies currently account for 15 percent of PBS’s budget. Am I to believe that “viewers like you” couldn’t be bothered to donate $11.50 instead of their usual $10? Do we as a nation esteem Masterpiece Theatre, NOVA and Frontline so low as to value our spare change over the joy these programs bring? I doubt it. PBS programming makes our citizens universally better. Most TV is just entertaining, but PBS is edifying. In a media ecology populated by vapid shows such as “Honey Boo Boo” and “America’s Got Talent,” PBS is the last levee protecting our children with the possibility of substantive television. Critics and viewers agree: PBS is consistently worth watching. So let’s remove the subsidy. Let’s stand up and say that we trust PBS to get by on its own merits. We do not need the government requiring us to pay for programming that we already like. Withdraw the subsidy and let the consumer pick up the difference. When that difference is less than the price of a fancy coffee, I would relish the opportunity to be a part of the change from “made possible, in part, by viewers” to just plain “made possible by viewers like you.” — Connor Land is a senior from Marietta majoring in English

Peeping Toms have been around for ages. According to legend, in 11th century England a tailor (“Tom”) was struck blind from on high after he “took a single peep” at a naked Lady Godiva. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Following in the venerable tradition of the Tailor from Coventry (hopefully minus divine retribution) is a gaggle of giggling girls armed to the teeth with iPhone cameras, gallivanting around campus in pursuit of unsuspecting prey. It’s tapthatUGAguy, a Tumblr that compiles surreptitious photographs of hot UGA males. It’s creepy. It’s candid. It includes a lewd sexual reference in its title. And yet. And yet. Most of us want so desperately to be featured on it. By “most of us,” I mean all the male editors of The Red & Black (sample size: four, and dashing fellows all), but the same holds true for most guys at UGA. We’ve gone out of our way to frequent dining halls during peak hours. We’ve pored over pages of tapthatUGAguy updates. We’ve been cavalier in our application of the “sun’s out, guns

out” rule. All to catch a female’s passing fancy and grace the virtual halls of a Tumblr run by two savvy undergraduates operating under noms de plume. It’s absurd. And it begs the question: what is so appealing about tapthatUGAguy? The girl version of the site (“tapthatUGAgal” — they blazed trails with that one) never took off, probably because it was viewed as beyond-the-pale creepy by all parties but the tone-deaf pariahs who created it. Judging from the reactions of our female editors and from the queasy-in-your-stomach tug of common sense, women do not like being sexually appraised without at least their tacit consent. Guys have fewer issues with it, stemming partly from their physical confidence (when a guy is stalked it usually does not end with them in bits in a refrigerator — that is more of a concern for girls).

Surviving ‘Phantom Vibration Syndrome’

M

y friends like to play this game whenever we go out to eat. Phones are handed over, placed on vibrate and stacked in a tower at the center of the table. And then we wait. If one phone gets a message, the entire column shakes and the buzzing jolts us out of our conversation. First person to dig into the plastic pile to check their messages has to pay for dinner, or for the next round. I hate this game. It causes me physical pain. My phone could be on the top of the pile, it could be entirely removed from my sight — it doesn’t matter. Either way, I’m convinced it’s lighting up nonstop. Every buzz is an urgent call, an emergency email, a text demanding my attention that second. I suffer from Phantom Vibration Syndrome, and this is not a satirical column. Those who experience PVS think their phone is vibrating even when it’s not. You’ve probably experienced it, checking your purse because you’re convinced you heard a buzz only to realize later your phone remains messageless. Fast Company columnist Martin Lindstrom wrote about PVS in July, specifically about its prevalence among millenials. “As much as we all believe we’re skilled multi-taskers, for the record, we’re not,” he wrote. “Quite simply, we’re no longer fully present. By this I mean emotionally as opposed to physically.

We think we are, we think we’re participating in the conversation, but in reality, we’re not.” How did I get here? When I was growing up, my workaholic dad used to sleep with his beeper on his bedside table, something I never understood. What if it woke you up in the middle of the night? Now that I’m older and iPhoned, I get it: being woken up is exactly the point. A decade later, I’m right there with him, smartphone always on the bedside table. I shudder at every quake in the air, assuming it’s a literal call for my attention. So maybe I’m diseased. But also, maybe Lindstrom isn’t right — maybe I’m completely sane. Sure, my greatest fears are spiders and heights, but being left out is pretty high on most people’s list. At a two-hour lunch with a friend on Monday, I checked my phone for messages five different times — but I actually did have messages. And my friend was on her phone, too. In the span of that Barberito’s meal, we had three conversations going at once. So if I’m diseased, I kind of like being afflicted. It’s the terrible curse of wellconnected twentysomethings — digital-first, if you will. — Julia Carpenter is a senior from Savannah majoring in magazines and English

Mostly, however, it stems from males’ natural competitiveness. Males like hierarchies — leader boards and trophies. Getting the coveted nod by the Broader Female Demographic through outlets such as tapthatUGAguy is, as the aforementioned acronym spells out, a BFD. It’s the ultimate ego stroke. If there is one thing that describes tapthatUGAguy, it is self-indulgence. Self-indulgence on the part of its participants for being shameless snoops, selfindulgence on the part of male followers for being shameless ego hounds and self-indulgence on the part of “Serena” and “Matilda” for enabling it all. But ultimately, for most, tapthatUGAguy is a harmless vanity mirror. It is social media’s uniquely modern spin on a generations-spanning indiscretion that has run the gamut from slumber party gossip to Peeping Tom’s 11th century ogle. So men, hit the gym and choose your outfits carefully — we’ve got a tradition to uphold.

Join Our Team Plasma Donors Needed Now Without the University Police's nighttime escort service and call boxes, some University students feel unsafe alone at night. Photo illustration by C.B. SCHMELTER/Staff

Be wary on late-night treks across campus Williamson said if students feel the need to walk alone at night, they should first tell somebody where they will be. “If you have no other situation but to walk, then let somebody know what time you’re leaving and what time you arrive,” he said. “Stay on a well-lit path.” The University does not have call boxes so people walking on campus can’t phone police if necessary. And in August 2011, the police department discontinued its escort van service in the face of budget cuts. The service was designed to give single riders a safe form of transportation around campus at night. Cunningham said she would be less likely to walk on her own if transportation “were more reliable at night” and if University police would offer assistance. “At [Georgia] Tech, if you see cops, they’ll take you home if they’re not doing anything else,” she said. “I was wondering if our cops would do that.” Williamson said many University police officers would feel uncomfortable giving students rides home but would follow them down the street if crime was slow that night. “We try to help out wherever we can. A lot of times, we just try to be in the general area when they’re walking and it makes [walkers] feel more comfortable,” he said. Williamson said students are “always welcome” to call the police with these requests but suggested students find an alternative mode of transportation home at night.

When Jackie Cunningham works at the front desk of Building 1516, she sometimes gets off late at night — and finds herself walking at least part of the way home in the dark. “I’ve never been chased or anything, but there are times when I’ll look around and I’ll realize that there’s no one around,” she said. “I get really freaked out.” University Police recommend University students, male or female, do not walk alone at any time at night without first trying to make other travel arrangements. Cunningham, a sophomore international business and marketing major from California, does not own a car. “I pick my hours so that I don’t work late hours because I know I can’t get home. That’s pretty inconvenient, but whatever,” she said. “But I’ll cover shifts for people sometimes at night.” Cunningham said she usually tries to plan to be picked up from work on those nights, but sometimes that is not an option. During the Sept. 29 home football game against Tennessee, Cunningham said she worked until around 10 p.m. University Campus Transit System buses do not run during home games, and Cunningham said she wanted to make sure her roommate would not have to wait in a line of traffic to pick her up. So Cunningham took a shuttle to Sanford Stadium before walking to Robinson Court alone. “It freaked me out,” she said. University Police Chief Jimmy

Developer J.W. York legally chopped down a 100-year-old oak tree on Talmadge Street in order to build two “eco-friendly” homes. C.B. SCHMELTER/Staff

Century-old tree cut, no ACC permission needed biased.” York bought the lot the tree was on and went through the necessary Athens-Clarke County governmental processes to legally split the land into two smaller lots, said Amy Lopp, arborist planner for Athens-Clarke County. “He did have to go through a process with our department and a few other departments to get that approved because there are minimum sizes and stuff required,” she said. “You can’t just pick any lot and be like, ‘Oh, there’s a lot. Now I’m going to put a house on it.’” York said he chopped down the tree legally — in compliance with both zoning and tree ordinances already in place. Lopp confirmed that York legally cut down the tree and said he did not even need permission from the Athens-Clarke County government to start chopping. “They did not need a permit to remove that tree,” she said. “On residentially zoned lots — and that one was residentially zoned — of less than an acre you can remove trees without a permit or penalty.”

A neighborhood banded together in protest after a developer legally chopped down an oak tree on Talmadge Street Monday in order to build two “eco-friendly” homes. Before developer J.W. York removed the tree, the neighborhood of Normaltown only came together when crisis had already struck, resident Emuel Aldridge said. But he said Normaltown has “recently formed a neighborhood organization so that [they] can try to reach agreements, come to terms and respond to things before they turn into a crisis” in response to the developing company’s actions. “That was a 100-year-old tree. It was quite a specimen,” Aldridge, a new media lecturer at the University, told The Red & Black. “I think a tree like that deserves our protection.” But Jared York, the president of J.W. York, denied that he has created a “crisis.” “I would always love to sit down and talk about new building and affordable housing and green housing in Athens and the conflict behind those kind of things,” he said. “But in search: normaltown reality, the media in this townBuildBB is very OCB_SellBooks_R&B_Halfpg_RC Brooks 10/10/12 4:56 PM Page 1

ELECTION CONNECTION

Immigration left untouched Editor’s note: Election Connection is an ongoing series running on Tuesdays that reports on topics and issues pertaining to the Nov. 6 elections. BY NICHOLAS WATSON The Red & Black The date was Sept. 4. While more than 30,000 attendants screamed for four more years in Charlotte, Yovany Diaz sat in a cold, wet jail cell enduring the yells of several U.S. Immigration and Customs agents. “We only gave our names and our dates of birth,” said Diaz, a 20-year-old undocumented immigrant. “They were threatening and intimidating us, and bottom line, they wanted to deport us without even knowing who we are.” Diaz traveled on the UndocuBus, a group of undocumented immigrants traveling in protest for reform. Sitting and blocking the Charlotte Convention Center, he and nine other protestors were arrested in a block surrounded by flashing camera lights and the chants of “si, se puede.” “We just wanted to let the community and America know that this stuff is happening every day and [people] just don’t see it,” Diaz said. “Rosario Dawson, the actress, showed up and spoke on our behalf, and that was really cool.” Diaz is just one of the estimated 11.1 million undocumented immigrants, according to 2009 Pew Research Center estimates, that are within the U.S. He was coming to the States only four months after his birth. He then left and returned at age eight, Diaz said his life began in hardship. “I had to do really tough work when I was seven years old, like cutting the grass with machetes or milking the cows,” Diaz said.

Gustavo Madrigal, a fellow undocumented immigrant, said he shares in this pain of the struggle to survive. Madrigal entered the country at the age of nine with his mother and sister, joining his father who had immigrated four years earlier. “[My family and I] came here because that was not the life that we wanted,” he said. “We weren’t really making ends meet, even though my dad was [in the U.S] working.” Life as a foreigner, Madrigal said, comes with the constant barrage of people who instantly disapprove of you. “I had an accent, and it was after 9/11, so sometimes I would be called a terrorist,” he said. “For the most part, it was mainly the school bus or being on the playground. The bus rides were scary because teenagers can be kind of mean and dangerous.” Both found that the issue of immigration has been widely untouched in this election, something that is swept under the rug and happens daily. The DREAM Act, introduced in August 2001 by Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), offered a bipartisan effort to create a path to legal immigration for the undocumented, according to the 2009 version of the bill. The act affects those who have lived here for at least five consecutive years, have been here before age 16 and possess good moral character after graduating from an American high school. It has been discussed perennially since 2007, with changes each time, but has not been considered due to filibuster, according to the U.S. Senate Roll Call. “For people who are here and have no documents, there is no way to go and get your green card,” Madrigal said. “There is no process, there is no line [and] there is

not an application you go and fill out. Trust me — if it was about filling out papers and doing a little more work, it would have been done.” Diaz echoed Madrigal’s sentiments, saying people don’t understand how the system works. “They say, ‘Why didn’t you get in line?’” Diaz said. “They don’t realize that there is no line and no legal way for us.” President Barack Obama, Madrigal said, represented a change in his feelings as a citizen. “It wasn’t until early 2008 that I really started seeing myself as an American because of Obama,” he said.” “I saw this guy running for president, talking openly about the DREAM Act and immigration reform.” But Obama deported an average of 32,886 undocumented immigrants per month over his last four years. This created the most undocumented immigrants deportations than any president beforehand. “Obama has been a huge disappointment to the undocumented youth movement and immigrants in general,” he said. “It’s kind of undeniable that the Democrats along with President Obama have shifted to the right. Things look bleak.” Obama announced deferred action would be provided for young undocumented immigrants. He said it is wrong to “expel innocent young kids.” “What we’ve tried to do is focus our immigration enforcement resources in the right places,” President Obama said. “We focused and used discretion about whom to prosecute, focusing on criminals who endanger our communities rather than students who are earning their education.” Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney shares

Members of various campus organizations and groups of illegal immigrants in 2011 protested the Board of Regents' ban on enrollment of undocumented students. FILE/The Red & Black similar beliefs on protecting youth who “were brought here through no fault of their own.” “The immigration system, I think we all agree, is broken and it’s been a political football for years and years,” Romney said during his interview on the Spanishlanguage network Univision. “Instead of having our diversity visas offered, we provide instead the chance to pull families together. I want that to be the favored system for immigration.” Both Diaz and Madrigal, residents of Roswell and Griffin, respectively, were affected by the University System of Georgia Board of Regents ban created in 2010 on illegal immigrants attending the top five universities. These include the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Georgia. “I didn’t get to go to [college] right after high school because my parents couldn’t afford it,” Madrigal said. “Being undocumented, I couldn’t take out any loans and I can’t get someone to co-sign with me. But I wanted to continue my education.” Freedom University is a higher education institution created for students regardless of immigration status — it provided education to both

undocumented students. Diaz is attending Freedom University now, while Madrigal is now attending Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. “We started Freedom University as a reaction to the ban that prohibited undocumented students to apply to the five most competitive schools in the state of Georgia,” said Betina Kaplan, associate head and associate professor of romance languages at the University and Freedom University professor. “All of the students have graduated in Georgia schools, and they were classmates of a big number of students that are attending UGA and there is no reason for them not to be able to get higher education.” As long as the ban exists, Kaplan said that it is the mission of Freedom University to provide equal education, despite what one’s papers say. “We offer them college level classes, so they are pretty much getting the same thing we teach at UGA,” Kaplan said. “We are interested in them developing analytical and critical thinking skills. I want from them the same things that I would want from my students at UGA.”

Turnover in student conduct office Former associate director takes position at Tate Student Center Jamie Gottlieb The Red & Black The changes keep coming for the Office of Student Conduct. Beau Seagraves, associate director of the OSC, said he will move from his position in the OSC to the position of assistant dean of students for the Tate Student Center, newly-created in August. Seagraves’ move comes shortly after the resignation of Kristopher Stevens, former director of the OSC, and repositioning in the Equal Opportunity Office in August. The move will also come after changes in the employee structuring at the OSC. Four top employees in the OSC either resigned or transferred to another University department in 2010, according to a 2011 article from The Red & Black. Seagraves said working in the OSC

and with judiciary was rewarding, but he is excited for the new opportunity to work in the Tate Student Center. He first saw the job posting in August. “It’s an excellent opportunity for me to get new experience,” he said. The University hired Seagraves as associate director of the OSC in fall 2010. As the associate director for the Tate Student Center, Seagraves said he is responsible for overseeing the services in Tate, including in offices such as Tate Print & Copy. “I’ll be overseeing operations with Tate business office, IT unit, UGACard and passport office,” he said. As for who is filling Seagraves’ former position at the OSC, Eric Atkinson, associate dean of students, said the job has not yet been filled. “We’ve posted that position and are searching for someone now,” Atkinson said.

There are only two women on the ballot in Athens-Clarke County, out of 16 positions up for election. Charles Bullock, the University’s Richard B. Russell professor of political science, said this is a national trend. “Over time, more and more women are achieving public office,” he said. “But it depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for proportional representation, we’re a long way from that. But it used to be nothing, so there’s progress.” Chief Magistrate Judge Patricia Barron is running for re-election on a Democratic ticket. Regina Quick, an Athens attorney, is running for the Georgia State House seat for the 117th District. Both are running unopposed.

The Georgia legislature is 22 percent female, compared to 17 percent in Congress and as much as 40 percent in other state legislatures, Bullock said. Research has shown that one of the reasons women aren’t as well represented in political office is that they don’t run. Sophomore Megan White argues that gender shouldn’t be a factor in choosing the quality of candidate. “I don’t think we should look forward to a day where there are more women in politics than men. I think we should look forward to a day when gender isn’t a factor in determining who is most qualified to hold office,” she said. “I wouldn’t vote for a candidate just because she’s a woman.”

For every headband sold, another headband is donated to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to St. Baldrick’s Foundation for children’s cancer research. There are now 10 chapters on college campuses all across the nation. The University’s chapter was founded this fall. The University’s chapter has sold 15 headbands since its launch in August. — Elizabeth Howard

By the year 2020, the college experience could be drastically different. One potential change is a move toward distance learning. “Maybe fewer face-to-face, some classes where they have to log in online, while they’re living at wherever the campus is located,” Robert Toutkoushian, professor of higher education at the University, said. In a survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project of 1,021 Internet experts and users, 60 percent agreed with a statement saying that by 2020 “there will be mass adoption of ... ‘hybrid’ classes that combine online learning components with less-frequent on-campus, in-person class meetings.” — Kelly Whitmire

‘Money no one really has’: Rising loans felt by students Megan Ernst The Red & Black Jessica Rook has more than $21,000 in debt from student loans, and she’s only a sophomore. “It’s stressful knowing that it’s all piling up,” she said.  Rook, who is shouldering the burden of college on her own, plans to attend veterinary school after graduating. She’ll pay for that on her own as well — which means more student loans.  “I have private loans and subsidized and unsubsidized federal loans,” the animal science major said. “Last year, I took a loan with my bank, and this year I took one through [student loan company] Sallie Mae.”  Rook is one of many.  University students took out federal and state student loans totaling more than $78.6 million in the 2010 to 2011 fiscal year. That’s almost $23 million more in loans than was taken out in the 2006 to 2007 fiscal year, according to the Office of Institutional Research.  More than 17,000 loan awards were recorded by the University, up from nearly 13,000 in 2007.  Melissa Greer, another University student paying for her own school, has accumulated about $12,000 in student loans “so far.”  “I always knew I’d be paying for my own education,” she said. “I guess it’s frustrating, but it sort of teaches you responsibility, too – knowing I’m going to have to be making those payments.” Both Greer and Rook hold part-time jobs to contribute to their rent and cost of living. Rook, who works at Outback Steakhouse, said her income is helping her pay the monthly payments on her private loans. Greer, who has the Zell Miller Scholarship, uses her loans to pay rent but is saving up to study abroad.  There are three types of student loans: federal, state and private. Loan awards recorded by OIR do not include private loans, which students can take out through banks. There are different types of federal student loans that fit different applicant profiles. The types of awards and their amounts are determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students can receive subsidized loans, which are based on financial need, as well as unsubsidized loans, which do not take need into account.  This trend of increased student debt is present nationwide. About one in five of the nation’s households had debt from student loans in 2010, according to a Pew Research Center analysis. This number is up from 15 percent in 2007. Among those households, the outstanding debt has jumped from about $23,000 in 2007 to almost $27,000 in 2010.   “I guess I don’t really understand why it’s getting so expensive,” Greer said. “I mean, tuition costs are going up and teachers aren’t getting raises, so I don’t see where it’s going. I guess it’s sad that more and more students have to take out loans — it’s honestly just money no one really has.”  The cost of higher education has nearly tripled since 1980, according to Pew. University of Georgia tuition has nearly quadrupled since 1990 for in-state tuition, and risen by nearly 430 percent for out-of-state tuition.  Jon Turk, a Ph.D. candidate in the University Institute of Higher Education, said

the increase in college tuition is unparalleled. “The  cost of higher education is drastically outpacing inflation, so the question is why does it go up so much.” he said. “There are a lot of factors that lead to tuition increase, but none that really give a 100 percent clear answer as to why costs go up the way they do.” Fifty-seven percent of Americans say the U.S. higher education system “fails to provide good value for the money students and their families spend,” according to Pew research.  At public universi-

ties like the University of Georgia, Turk points to the loss of state funding as a major reason for the increase in tuition and fees. “Particularly for universities like UGA, the trend, because of economic hard times, is institutions seeing fewer dollars from the state,” he said. “Unlike a lot of other state programs — very few of them have ways of generating their own revenue — colleges do through tuition and fees. So that’s one reason why you see the national trend in state budget cuts for institutes of higher education.”

Spontaneous invasion: Boy band ‘pops up’ to perform Say My Name

By HILARY BUTSCHEK The Red & Black Spontaneous, the boy band, just happened. And, you might just happen to attend one of their live shows without planning to. Spontaneous specializes in poppin’ up in unexpected places with a song and dance, similar to flash mobs. The band’s first single, “Poppin’ Up,” which was released this summer, shows its signature style of performance. When they pop up, the trio of teenage boys will choose a location — anywhere from Kroger to a frozen yogurt shop — enter it wearing matching puffy vests and scrubs pants and sing and dance in harmony accompanied by a boom box. The boys then get out as soon as possible, before security is called or their true identities outside of their stage roles are discovered. But, they can’t help it — they’ve become celebrities in their hometown of Snellville and on campus. Spontaneous was born this summer, and they’ve been noticed. The band has almost 200,000 views of its single on YouTube, has performed countless spontaneous performances and a has released a single on iTunes. “I get people coming up to me saying you’re that poppin’ up kid,” said Austin Agar, 17, a senior at Brookwood High School, “and all the shops know us. They know what’s about to happen when we walk in.” As of now, the boy band has only popped up in Snellville and online, but they are slowly making their way onto campus.

Spontaneous bios, as written by the members on Facebook. The Heartthrob: Justin Lennox is an American millionaire, industrialist and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals. The Rebel: Austin Agar is the rebel of the group, so he didn’t write a bio.

After finding themselves disappointed with today's boy band scene, Austin Agar, Reed Cowan and Justin Lennox (from left to right) decided to start a flash mob-style one of their own. Courtesy Spontaneous Spontaneous has recently been granted student organization status with the creation of the group Athens Boy Band Society, or ABBS — pronounced “abs.” Members of the group are fans. The band has been invited to perform at the homecoming kickoff event on Oct. 29 at the Tate Center, which will be its debut performance on campus, to be followed by many more surprise pop-ups. The idea for a flash mob boy band came to Justin Lennox, 18, a freshman at the University, over the summer, just before the trio was to be split. Lennox would head to college and the other two members of the band would stay in Snellville, still attending Brookwood High School. “We were a little timid at first, when Justin first pitched the idea to us, but after

we heard the music we thought it’d be really cool,” said Reed Cowan, 18, a senior at Brookwood High School. “The main part we were concerned about was the going around to random places, but then we did it and we were like, ‘Wow, this is a lot of fun.’” The trio of singers admires the oldies: Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, and they hold a bit of animosity towards modern boy bands for their lack of harmony. “We came together because we always wanted to be in a boy band and before that we always got together and harmonized,” Lennox said, “and we’re definitely going to do it better than One Direction and the Jonas Brothers.” Spontaneous focuses on keeping their own identities: Cowan the sensitive one, Lennox the heartthrob and

Agar the rebel, while holding together as a group in the same way they emphasize harmony. They also emphasize humor. "Poppin' Up" focuses on fast paced puns related to the original lines, set to cuttogether purposeful and cellphone videos from their performances. In the purposeful shots: held up boxes of PopTarts and Kellog's Pops. In the cellphone: dim-lit ice cream shops and disoriented patrons. On the group's Facebook, the members provide fleshed out bios for themselves, referencing pop culture icons such as Batman or the Terminator. Agar, as the rebel, is the only person not to have a lengthy bio. His, simply stated: "Austin Agar is the rebel of the group, so he didn’t write a bio." At first, Spontane-

2. Choose useful art. Although students may want art, they often don’t have the money for it on hand. Spending a big part of the budget could cause you to feel guilty about the purchase since it can’t be put to use in the same way as, say, food. However, a way around that is to buy art you can find a use for — even if it is just to look at.

Art is never unobtainable. Or at least, that’s what an artist will tell you. For an artist, there’s always a way and a reason to support local work. “I mean, I definitely collect art, and I’m a student — I’m pretty broke,” said Sonni Brickhouse, a senior jewelry major. Even when you think you don’t have one extra cent, there can always be room made in the budget for getting that piece you can’t live without. The following are tips on how to buy art from the artists themselves.

they all pull out their phones,” Lennox said. “They may not ever know us, but they can go home and say, ‘Oh my gosh, you’ll never guess what happened to me today,’ and we want to be that funny little story they can tell.” All three members have fun performing in the moment because they enjoy the excitement of not knowing what might happen next. “Being in a boy band is like Jenga,” Agar said. Because he’s always got his boy band brother’s back, Lennox finished his thought. “Because one moment we’re sitting there, and the next moment everything spontaneously changes,” Lennox said.

ous had music and fame on its mind. It still does. “Quote me,” all three members of Spontaneous pleaded throughout an interview with The Red & Black. As well as fame, the one single member of the band hopes to enjoy other benefits their idolized ‘90s boy bands did. “They got all the ladies because they were attractive,” Cowan said. “Personally, I know I’ve always wanted to be on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show, or marry Taylor Swift.” Through performing, though, the band has steered away from putting all importance on future fame. The members have realized fame in the moment might be more worthwhile than their faces on a poster. “Every time we go in there it brightens up people’s day, and

3. Value what you’ve never seen before. The popularization of mass-produced jewelry has taken away from the craft of the homemade variety. The more a piece surprises you, the more you should value it as you may never see anything like it again. 4. The art you choose says something about you. Make sure you fit with your art. When you buy a piece of art you create a relationship with the piece. You begin living with it, so it is important that the piece you choose is in sync with your personality. “I think when you look at an outfit someone is wearing you can tell what’s important,” said Lola Brooks, professional jewelry maker and Lamar Dodd School of Art distinguished chair. The art you choose to adorn yourself with — even clothes and jewelry — can reflect your personality. Make sure you’re choosing art for the long term. 5. You may not have to buy the art with money. If you’re buying art from a student, you might be able to barter for that piece you’ve had your eye on. Instead of trading money for the purchase, it’s possible that the artist might allow another medium of exchange. Depending on the artist, you may be able to trade your own goods, services or expertise for a piece of art. It’s not guaranteed, but for those who don’t have a lot of spare money to spend on art, it might work.

GREEK AFTERLIFE

Sig Ep gets spooked Fraternity claims house is haunted By ASHLEE DAVIS The Red & Black Of all the things usually found in a frat house, a ghost isn’t one of them. For the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, bumps in the night are all too frequent. Members claim their house on 327 S. Milledge Avenue is haunted. “I lived in room No. 2 my entire sophomore year and there were many, many kinds of weird things that would happen throughout the year, whether it was flickering lights or seeing things that weren’t where we left them,” said Jeff Ostenson, a recent marketing graduate from Stone Mountain. Sigma Phi Epsilon’s haunted story begins with a family who lived in the house prior to the fraternity. The father — who was in some variations a priest and in others a chemistry professor from the University named H.G. White — was fired from his job. In a fit of madness, he drowned his young daughter, Tabitha, in the upstairs bathroom. According to rumor, he either hung himself in the attic or disappeared altogether. “Ever since then the house has been haunted by Tabitha,” said Jim Martin, a fifth-year psychology major from Alpharetta. Several fraternity brothers have come forward with unexplained occurrences — a ball bouncing, footsteps in the attic and the echo of a girl’s laughter — all of which were supposedly done at the mischievous hands of Tabitha. Ostenson recalls an unnerving event after closing his bedroom door. “It wasn’t five minutes after we had done that the door slowly creaked open,” Ostenson said. “Obviously you can’t make a door creaking noise in the paper, but it was the worst door creak noise ever.” He and his roommate, Wes

Residents at Sigma Phi Epsilon say the ghost of a previous owner's daughter haunts the fraternity by moving objects and making strange sounds. Tabitha, the daughter, was supposedly drowned by her father in a fit of madness. C.B. SChmelter/Staff Robertson, quickly looked down at the door to find no one standing at the threshold. Then it slammed shut. “It slammed while we were watching the door and I never had anything like that happen,” Ostenson said. Neither roommate could offer an explanation for the door opening and promptly closing. The stories don’t end there. Robertson and Ostenson both recall lights turning off by themselves, which Ostenson claims was not a result of a simple power surge. “Out of nowhere all the lights got very noticeably brighter, like all of them were about double the brightness, and then they all burned out,” Ostenson said. “I knew it wasn’t a power surge or anything because the TV was still on, the TV was still working. But I went around and tried all the lights, and all of my bulbs had to be replaced.” In addition to the spooks of flickering lights and self-shutting doors, residents returned to their room to find personal items in odd places.

“No moving beds or anything, but I would set down my phone and literally just walk to my dresser and come back and it wouldn’t be where I thought I set it down,” Ostenson said. Residents note being spooked on a psychological level as well, reporting feelings of unease when alone in the house and plagues of strange dreams. “I just had some really weird dreams while I was sleeping there, a lot more than I had at other times or other places,” Robertson said. Just how much of this ghost story can be chalked up to the unknown? First a little must be known about the house’s history. Property records at the AthensClarke County courthouse indicate the house changed hands twice since being built in 1950. Its most recent sale was in 1975 when Alpha Xi Delta sold the property to Sigma Phi Epsilon. According to the deed book, the earliest warranty deed was in 1959, when Alpha Xi Delta bought the property from Omchap, a housing

TAP: Students talk blog’s ‘creep factor’ ➤ From Page 1 “We liked the idea of taking on these new roles,” Serena said. “I’m not this confident in front of boys, but this way, I can take their picture and talk about them. If people knew who we were, it wouldn’t be as much of a mystery.” Copycats and creepers Todd Romano, a junior marketing major from Roswell, had two questions about TapthatUGAGuy: 1) “Am I on there?” 2) “Is there one for girls?” And while he had never visited the blog himself, Romano had an immediate reaction: “That’s kinda creepy.” That’s “the ethical discussion” about the “creep factor” at hand — because most of the photos on TapthatUGAGuy were snapped on the sly, without the subject’s knowledge or permission. Serena and Matilda were contacted by the founders of a parody blog — tapthatugagal.tumblr.com. “We knew it was coming,” Matilda said. “Someone was going to feel the need to make a female counterpart to our endeavors.” The header to tapthatugagal.tumblr.com comes with a warning: “if you would like your photo taken down, just let me know. :)” The last photo was posted on Sept. 20, of a faceless blonde girl taking notes with legs folded underneath her. Leland Spencer, a PhD candidate in communication studies and lecturer in women’s studies, said when first looking at TapthatUGAGal he found the photos “similar to the kind a stalker would have.” “Most of the men being featured on [TapthatUGAGuy] are not at risk

of violence ... by and large, we don’t think the person who took the photo will find them, track them down or rape them,” he said. “I would expect most men would be flattered.” But it’s different with TapthatUGAGal. Annie Russo, a high school student and avid fan of the blog, said she would first be “flattered” if someone submitted a photo of her to TapthatUGAGal. But then she’d “quickly realize it was creepy.” “Guys have more a sense of humor about themselves,” she said. “And guys like the attention. It’s like an advertisement ... Some girls watch too much SVU.” Russo said she doesn’t see the same “creep factor” on TapthatUGAGuy. “Being a girl with a camera phone, I would do exactly the same thing walking to class,” she said. “There shouldn’t be a double standard but there is,” Matilda said. “When guys do it there’s this air of, ‘Oh, that’s creepy.’ It’s too bad.” The tweets and Tumblr notes have all been positive. “We’ve received no hate from the guys,” Serena said. She said most comment back on the blog or tweet directly at the creator, describing how they feel “so honored” by the recognition. “If you want hot photos of guys, you can go to Google and type in the name of a celebrity with ‘shirtless.’ You can get photos that are much better than these poorly-taken candids from someone’s iPhone,” he said. “But there’s this element of local interest ... You think, ‘Maybe I’ll see someone I know.’ Or even ‘Maybe I’ll see myself.’”

corporation. But as to who lived in the house before either fraternity? Not even a ghost of a record remains. Though the history of the house prior to 1959 is murky, explanation for the origin of this story is not so otherworldly. “There’s so much in our world we don’t understand,” said Elissa Henken, University professor and folklorist. “We spend some of our time as humans conjecturing about what might be after.” Henken said stories of hauntings feed speculation about the afterlife. “How do we explain it?” Henken said. “There’s somebody invisible to us doing it.” Reasonable explanation or not, many fraternity members insist that it’s possible there is something amiss. “I’m not big on ghosts or anything, but you never know,” Robertson said. “They were kind of freaky when you think about them in retrospect.”

Commanding respect, Georgia tight end Lynch builds opportunities BY BENJAMIN WOLK The Red & Black Something about Arthur Lynch makes him stand out amongst his peers. Sure, his 6-foot-5, 258 pound frame helps. But it’s more than just that. The big-bodied tight end — perhaps without intention — commands the respect of every room he walks into. Whether he’s laughing and joking with the media, studying with fellow tight end Jay Rome or running routes in practice, Lynch carries himself with a charisma not often found in a 22-year old college student. It’s such second nature to Lynch that he is almost in denial about his outstanding character. “I’m not going to sit here and tell you I’m wise beyond my years,” Lynch said. Despite his claim, Lynch is just that. Just look at the junior’s bye week as proof. Rather than going home or relaxing and watching football, Lynch — along with his roommate Christian Robinson — headed to the eastside of Athens to sign autographs and watch the Downtown Falcons, the local pop warner football team. “The only football I watched really all day was a little pop warner team over near Oglethorpe on the east side of town,” Lynch said. “That’s kind of a cool thing to see, just little kids running around hitting each other and having a blast.” There aren’t many college students, let alone a football player on his week off, that would take time out of their only free Saturday of the semester to spend time with Athens’ future football stars. The week before that, Arthur Lynch returned to a house that

Tight end Arthur Lynch has made headlines on the field, but his presence off the field is more impressive. He's not your typical athlete. cody b. schmelter/Staff had been egged and rolled by toilet paper, hours after a disastrous 35-7 loss to South Carolina. His response was to clean it up himself when he arrived at 3 a.m. He did it without asking for the help of his roommates, quarterback Aaron Murray, fullback Dustin Royston, linebacker Christian Robinson and long snapper Ty Frix. “I cleaned it up by myself, because I thought this doesn’t need to be shown in the morning,” Lynch said to Anthony Dasher of Rivals.com. “Everybody found out about because Christian put it on Twitter, but there was more positive feedback from fans and friends, than there was

negative. People make choices and we go on with it. It was kind of disheartening, but at the same time when all that went public, I had texts from tons of people saying shame on the people who did that.” Lynch’s fellow tight end teammate Jay Rome sees this type of behavior on a daily basis, and is no longer surprised by his friend's kindness. “Arthur’s a great guy. He will do anything for anybody on the team,” Rome said. “If you don’t know what to do or if you’re just struggling off the field, he’s the guy that will help you. He’s a great charismatic guy that gets along with everybody.”

TICKETING: Students relocated to crowded seating ➤ From Page 1 Sept. 22, as reported previously by the Red & Black. “After the first quarter we came down to get concessions and right before we walked out I spoke to one of the security officers at the entrance of the section,” Huckabee said. “I was like, ‘Hey, we didn’t get wrist banded, we just got waved in. If we go get concessions will we be allowed back in?’” The employee told them that they would not be allowed back in and then asked them to leave. While seeking wristbands, Huckabee and her roommate were told that the stadium was out of them. They were directed to the crowded 300 section, which is shared with Greek organizations. However, when they arrived at the 300 section, they realized there weren’t enough seats. Matt Brachowski, the assistant athletic director for event management, said that ticketing

officials did the right thing by redirecting the two students to the 300 levels. “There’s always a demand and there’s always going to be a time where you run out of seats in the 100 level, and that’s why we have three locations for students for the 18,000 seats,” Brachowski said. “When the ones fill up in the lower levels, then the only ones left will be in the 300 level. At some point in time we’re going to run out of wristbands and seats in the lower levels.” But the problem arises when 100 percent of the tickets are used, because bracelets run out and there aren’t enough seats left in the 300 levels to accommodate the surplus. Students are relocated, but they aren’t guaranteed a seat. “That section was absolutely packed with people, like, we had to go all the way to the top, it was packed, we couldn’t even sit down,” Huckabee said. Brachowski said that the

section was held to accommodate students, but that it was possible that lower sections were full, especially since those levels are traditionally occupied by fraternity seating. Fraternities are often awarded wristbands prior to the game, which allows them to assure seats for their members. “There are 20-something rows, so it's possible that by the time they got up there, the lower rows were full. That’s certainly understandable,” Brachowski said. Huckabee said that while she was looking for a seat, she met a non-student who had a wristband. “As we went on to get concessions we did ask someone who was standing there who had a wristband,” Huckabee said. “She was like, ‘I don’t know, somebody in a frat gave it to me’… She really didn’t appear to be a student.”

Georgia soccer team rests SEC title hopes on do-or-die three game stretch BY ETHAN BURCH The Red & Black Things may look desperate for the Georgia soccer team following Sunday’s loss on senior day, but the Bulldogs still have something to play for. “It’s obviously not a positive subject that we didn’t get a win in our last home game, but I think everyone is still confident,” senior midfielder Susannah Dennis said. “I think today we showed that we’re not giving up.” Georgia (6-9-2, 2-6-2 SEC) can earn a spot in the Southeastern Conference tournament by winning all three of its remaining games, despite its lowly

sixth-place ranking in the SEC East. The Bulldogs need nine points to land themselves in the tournament. Each win is worth three points and each tie is worth one. So if Georgia wins its final three games, it will make the 10-team cut for the conference tournament. Auburn won the tournament last season after entering the tournament as the seventh seed. The winner of the tournament, regardless of regular season record, would earn the league’s automatic NCAA tournament bid. “There’s still a chance, and we’ve just got to go into this weekend with confidence,” Dennis said.

Georgia will take on Mississippi State in Starkville on Friday. Mississippi State (8-8-1, 1-8-1) is ranked last in the SEC West. Mississippi State comes into Friday’s game after a 4-1 loss to Florida on the road. Friday’s game will be the first of the three do-or-die games to get Georgia back to the SEC tournament. Redshirt freshman Bella Hartley said she and her fellow underclassmen plan on using their close losses last weekend as motivation. “Basically just play our hearts out for our upper classmen,” Hartley said. “All of us younger girls are just going to play our hearts out and play for the

Volleyball team adds three sophomores

* Always Hiring* naughtyrumors@hotmail.com (706) 850-6917 naughtyrumors.net

BY TAYLOR DENMAN The Red & Black There is a shortage of upperclassmen on the Georgia volleyball team this season, but it has been able to refuel due to a number of underclassmen transfers. The Bulldogs acquired three new sophomore transfers: Elena Perri from Purdue, Kaylee Kehoe from Middle Tennessee and Lauren Teknipp from Michigan. Head coach Lizzy Stemke said it was surprising to have so many transfers in one season. “Transfers are a little bit unpredictable because you don’t know who’s interested and who’s looking until [they decide to transfer],” Stemke said. Transfers haven’t been enamored with Georgia in recent years, possibly due to the program’s lack of success. The Georgia volleyball team has gone 43-50 (23-37 SEC) in the past three years, and doesn’t have an established volleyball tradition. But Stemke said it was the team’s budding talent which attracted players from other programs. That talent has led the Bulldogs to a 11-7 (5-4) start in 2012. “What these transfers saw in this program was that it was a growing program that they felt they could contribute to,” Stemke said. “They came on visits here and they felt the energy of our girls and that energy is contagious … these players jumped into a situation that they felt that good things were happening.” Like many students at Georgia, each player has a different reason for coming to Athens. Perri, who joined the program in May, enjoys the completion of the Southeastern Conference and the intensity the league has to offer. “I came in and liked the coaches a lot and really trusted what they were saying,” Perri said. “I liked the campus and being in the SEC was a big thing for me. I know that it’s a great conference. The coaches were really fired up about it and all the people I met were really fired up about it and where this program is going.” Kehoe also liked the direction the program is headed. “When [Stemke] talked to me about her ideas … and where the program was going, I really liked it and how good we are going to be in the future when we’re playing for [the SEC title].” Kehoe’s situation at Middle Tennessee prompted her to look for a better fit. “I chose to attend Middle

seniors and do everything we’ve got like we have and leave it all out on the field.” Georgia has lost its last three games by one goal. The Bulldogs have often had problems gaining momentum, but head coach Steve Holeman said he was confident in his team’s attitude going forward. “Our girls came out here with great spirits regardless of the results from the weekend,” Holeman said. “Those were tough, but we came out here with a lot of energy and we’re just ready to get after it again.”

Kaylee Kehoe, who has played a pivotal role in Georgia's 2012 season, was one of three transfers to join the team. evan stichler/Staff Tennessee ... at the time I thought that was the right fit for me,” Kehoe said. “I left after my first semester … the first school that contacted me was Georgia.” A Fayetteville native, Kehoe also liked being closer to home. Kehoe played club volleyball with Teknipp during high school, along with sophomore Gaby Smiley. Teknipp said she and Kehoe both loved Georgia in high school, though they originally went their separate ways. “Kaylee, Gaby and I played club together and Gaby always talked about how much she loved Georgia,” Teknipp said. “I

knew after transferring from Michigan that I was going to come here because it’s back home and I knew Lizzy because she recruited me at Nebraska so she had a familiarity with me and Athens is a really fun campus.” The main draw of coming to Georgia was the comfortable environment it provided, Kehoe said. “I wanted to come back home and my experience at my other school wasn’t as great,” Kehoe said.

DAWGS OFF THE LEASH

Boggs’ Cardinals advance, Stafford defeats Eagles BY LUKE DIXON The Red & Black Former Georgia pitcher Mitchell Boggs’ St. Louis Cardinals are once again the Cinderella of the postseason. In the Division Series against the Washington Nationals, Boggs appeared in four games of the five game series. He was shaky in the beginning of the series, receiving the loss in game one and allowing two hits in game two. Boggs came back strong in his other two appearances, recording one strike out and only walking one. In Sunday’s series opener against the San Francisco Giants, Boggs worked a scoreless eighth inning, keeping the Cardinals’ 6-4 lead intact before closer Jason Motte secured the series-opening win for the Redbirds. Coming off bye week, Stafford shocks Boykin’s Eagles

Ex-Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford, the author of many Bulldog victories, led a comeback effort against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. The Lions won 26-23. FILE/Staff

Down 10 points with less than five minutes remaining, former Georgia quarterback

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions roared back to win in an overtime thriller against the Philadelphia Eagles. Stafford threw for over 300 yards for the second game in a row, but this time finished with a victory, as his two fourth quarter touchdowns (one rushing, one passing) and a Jason Hanson field goal forced overtime. After the Lions defense forced an Eagles punt on the first possession of the extra period, Stafford had two straight completions to set up Hanson’s 45-yard game winner. On the opposite sideline, former Georgia defensive back Brandon Boykin performed on special teams and defense for Philadelphia. Boykin had 120 yards on five returns and at least four tackles defensively for the third week in a row. Isner falls to Stepanek in third round of Shanghai Rolex Masters After defeating South Africa’s Kevin Anderson in three sets (7-6, 6-7, 7-6) in the second round of the tournament, former Georgia tennis

star Jon Isner was upset in the third round by Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic in as many sets. Isner and Stepanek were tied three games apiece, before Stepanek broke the fourth game, giving him the 4-3 advantage and break to take the first set. In the second set, both players held serve through the first 12 games, leading to a tiebreaker, which Isner won. The third set was even through four games with both Isner and Stepanek holding serve. But Stepanek broke in the sixth game, taking a 4-2 advantage. Isner was unable to get his own break as Stepanek closed him 6-3 in the decisive third set. Isner is ranked No. 11 in the world. Bubba Watson ‘smashing’ on the ‘Tonight Show’ UGA golf alumnus Bubba Watson made his second appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week. This time, the reigning Masters Champion was there to show off his food smashing skills, as seen in his watermelon drill. Watson teed off on various foods including a pumpkin pie, bell pepper and what was supposed to be a congratulatory Ryder Cup victory cake from Leno.

Football practice notes: Oct. 16 The Red & Black attended practice Monday for two five-minute periods that were made available to the media. The weather was in the mid-70s and there were clear skies. The quarterbacks and running backs worked together on hand-offs from both the shotgun formation and under center. Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley and Merritt Hall were taking first team snaps. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo told his quarterbacks to “go ahead and settle first,” before handing the ball off, while running backs coach Bryan McClendon told his backs, “Make sure that wrist is up,” and “Keep your head up, you can’t run the ball blind.” The wide receiving corps worked on its agility and cuts, as the wide outs would sprint about five yards before stopping and sprinting back the opposite way. The receivers ran back and forth four times before the next player would rotate in. The tight ends worked on finishing their blocks by going in motion, before hitting an individual sled and chopping their feet until the whistle blew. The defensive linemen did one-on-one drills and their technique while ripping past the defender. Defensive tackle John Jenkins did a swim move to get by defensive end Garrison Smith. The defensive backs worked on zone coverage, and defensive backs coach Steve Lakatos acted as the opposing quarterback. The defensive backs would meet the receiver and wrap up once they caught the ball. Josh HarveyClemons wrapped up a receiver in the backfield after a Lakatos check down to his running back. The inside linebackers worked on hitting angles and wrapping up. The ball carrier would pick a cone to run through and was met and wrapped up by the opposing linebacker. — Luke Dixon

The Georgia women's volleyball team made its way to Stegeman Coliseum Tuesday, which may have been the program's first appearance in the Bulldogs' basketball facility. It wasn't a pleasant trip, with the Bulldogs losing 3-1 to their instate rivals, the Yellow Jackets.

The Georgia soccer team is floundering after two 1-0 losses over the weekend. The Bulldogs had multiple chances to score in both matches. Now they face the most dire of circumstances — win three games on the road, or miss the SEC Tournament.

Gym Dogs hold ‘farmal’ as way to relax before stress of season

Gym Dog retires from team, stays on as manager BY ELIZABETH GRIMSLEY The Red & Black When Laura Moffatt decided to retire from gymnastics, her teammates were shocked. “I wasn’t really expecting it,” junior Cat Hires said. “I understand her decision and support her all the way, but it’s not like she’s left the team really. It’s like she’s still on the team, just in a different role.” But when it came time to tell the team about her decision, she had good news to follow. “As soon as it happened, Danna right away told me that I could possibly co-manage with Mariel,” Moffatt said. “So that was my go-to thing when I told the team. I was like, ‘Don’t worry! I’m not leaving. I’m not disappearing. I’m going to stay and be there in the gym everyday.’” The decision came because Moffatt just felt like she “was going to move on and needed to move on.” “I felt like the Lord was putting me in different places and just wanted me to take up a different role this year,” Moffatt said. The role of manager turned out to be right up Moffatt’s alley. It allowed her to have the time she needed while still staying close by. “Moff’s been awesome as manager,” Hires said. “I lived with her, so I know how organized she is. She’s in the gym every day supporting us and helping coach us and move our mats and just being there for us.” In place of gymnastics, Moffatt has started to build an organization in Athens called Faith Bridge Foster Care, which is based in Alpharetta. “It believes that the solution to the foster care crises and not having enough families for foster care is the church,” Moffatt said. “They go into churches and recruit foster families to take care of the kids.” So in Athens, Moffatt is trying to get her “generation to stand up for the foster care system.” “Even though we’re not capable of fostering yet, there are other ways to get involved like sponsorships and toy drives,” she said. “So I’m partnering up with Faith Bridge right now and trying to get some of that stuff started around here.” Not only were Moffatt’s teammates disappointed that she was leaving the team, but head coach Danna Durante was as well. Moffatt was one of the team's more consistent performers, even under adverse

Laura Moffatt knew her heart was set on serving the community, not gymnastics, so she retired, to work for Faith Bridge Foster Care. STAFF/The Red & Black conditions, which is something Durante said was sorely needed for next year's squad. “I was heartbroken when she told me that she was going to retire,” Durante said. “She’s just the kind of person you meet and know that she has an impact on people, so I knew that she was important. And with everything else that was going on with the team, I felt like her consistency and her composure and her care and her love for this team would be sorely missed.” However, no matter how heartbroken Durante was, she didn’t want to “discourage her from serving in another area she was passionate about.”

“I felt like if that’s what’s on her heart and that’s where she feels like she’s being led, then that’s something that she needs to follow,” Durante said. It may have been a hard decision, but Moffatt is pleased. “I really love serving the girls and helping them,” Moffatt said. “I’m still getting to be here and be present — not gymnastically — but mentally and emotionally and all those other aspects that we forget about sometimes. I’m really happy about my decision.”

The Gym Dogs slipped out of their leotards and into their dresses on Sunday night for their annual formal. “We all got dressed up with our cowboy boots and cowboy hats and our dates got all into it,” junior Cat Hires said. However, this year’s event was unlike any the Gym Dogs had experienced before. “Obviously, we’re gymnasts so half of our life is spent barefoot,” senior Christa Tanella said. “So when you put us in heels, we don’t exactly look or feel that natural." Instead the seniors put on a “farmal.” “We decided to do something a little more casual — more of a hoedown,” Tanella said. With the help of Phi Slam’s R.G. Waterworth, Tanella planned the night complete with caterers, sketches of the layout, signs and hay bails donated by farmers. “Let’s just put it this way: I am ready for weddings, so next on our team to get married, call my HIRES name,” Tanella said. “We learned line dancing as a team. We did the electric slide, which I had never done before, but we did it.” Even the Gym Dogs’ dates had fun with the festivities. “Our dates dressed up too,” Hires said. “Chris Conley was wearing a cowboy vest, so totally not him, but he got into it. It was fun.” The formal was not only a time for fun but also a time to relax away from the gym. “We just hung out and laid out on the dock and watched the stars,” Hires said. “We saw about 20 shooting stars and danced and ate the most delicious food you’ll ever have.” It also gave the team a chance to “get to know each other better away from gymnastics.” “It was a relaxed environment where they could just spend time together,” Georgia head coach Danna Durante said. “I think it surpassed all of their expectations.” With such a great experience this year, the returning players didn’t know how they are going to top it next fall. “It was just perfect,” Hires said. “Our seniors next year aren’t going to be able to top it.”

Anyone could have made “Argo.” Re-

Ben Affleck, double-hyphenate wunderkind, did, actually, direct it from a script by Chris Terrio from a magazine article by Joshuah Bearman from a real-life case of CIA capery — but you can’t tell, not really. The film’s best moments work transparently, so that their achievement feels invisible. Maybe that’s as it should be: Affleck is working with dangerous material — facts — and fact-based films tend to let the edges of their source stab at the finesse of fictionalization. Slavishness is a major danger; narrative correlation another. But “Argo” is light and unburdened with these possibilities: it opens in the middle of the Iranian revolution, at the end of the ’70s, at the start of what will become the Iran Hostage Crisis. Citizens have surrounded the American Embassy in Tehran; they are protesting the secreting-away of their former ruler, the shah, who they have charged with an authoritarian-sized case of human rights violations; and they are demanding his immediate returning-to so that he may be tried, charged and hanged. From that, this: one morning, the embassy is stormed and all — but six — are taken hostage. They escape to the house of the Canadian ambassador (Victor Garber, owlish and appropriately Canadian) and stay there, in secret, for months. And then Tony Mendez (Affleck, wide-collared and bearded) is tasked with smuggling them out in utmost secrecy. There are no more Americans in Iran; getting the six out of the country will require hiding away every bit of their American-ness. So Mendez decides to make a movie. “Argo” moves out from this absurdity, cross-cut with the banality of its reality. Mendez works, with the help of two Hollywood lifers played as hacks (John Goodman and Alan Arkin), to beef up the cover, to give it the sheen of plausibility, before heading in to round up the six and claim them as Canadian filmmakers. Across an ocean, Iran and its citizens grow more insistent: Bring us the shah. Bring us the shah. Bring us the shah. Bring them the shah, indeed: a cultural analysis of “Argo” obliterates it. The Iranians are all especially Iranian, and Affleck has made the curious decision not to translate much of anything they say so that everything they say sounds like a threat. Is that as it should be? With one eye closed, “Argo” plays like a strong thriller — strong, suspenseful, and tautly tropish, as if any geopolitical crisis were

really the background for a mid-budget studio picture about a string of character actors ready to be led about by a star. (One of the six hostages keeps insisting that they should stay put, even though the Canadians will evict them anyway, and that they shouldn’t leave with Affleck’s Mendez because they can’t trust him, even though Affleck’s jaw is stern enough to quell any doubt. Follow him, you fool, I thought — just as I was meant to.) After “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town” — two shakier, if edgier, efforts — Affleck has unveiled himself in the fullest bloom of his competency: “Argo” is a well-stocked production, and it pulls off some period flourishes with élan. (Love me some helicopter shots.) I suspect it will also make him a star, and will earn him a small cabinet of awards, thanks to an appetizing intersection of historical improbability and Hollywood lampoonery. “Argo” is entertaining, to be sure. But it’s also about a side success in a much larger disaster, which the film skirts only furtively. Near the very end, a minor character’s fate is revealed: she’s escaped Tehran — thank goodness, we think, since she’s been good to her American and Canadian counterparts — by crossing the border into Iraq. Out of the film set and into the fire. —Adam Carlson

Brooklyn did not find the Punch Brothers. But for the group of crosscountry migrants, it was a starting point. “We found each other eventually, and it was after we decided we wanted a band that we all migrated together to New York,” said Chris Eldridge, guitarist for the Punch Brothers. Eldridge comes from Virginia, while other members made their way to Brooklyn from California, Illinois and Wisconsin. All of the members grew up performing bluegrass from the time they were kids, some members meeting each other at festivals well before thoughts of New York entered their psyche. “[Bluegrass] is the music that provides the strongest base for each of us, but we’re definitely not trying to curate music that happened 70 years ago,” Eldridge said. “This band is not a band of curators. We’re interested in trying to make music in the present and New York is a great place to be inspired. It’s a great place to kind of be influenced.” That move has been the right call for the five-piece. Three albums, two of which reached No. 1 on the U.S. Grass charts as well as a song on the soundtrack for “The Hunger Games,” have all come out of the bluegrass outfit’s formation. “Dark Days,” was the song the Punch Brothers released on the soundtrack. It came through working with famous producer T. Bone Burnett that the opportunity presented itself. “We’ve become friends with T. Bone Burnett and T. Bone just asked us if we wanted to be involved,” Eldridge said. “Of course we jumped at the opportunity.” The new record “Who’s Feeling Young Now?” has garnered national attention, reaching the top 20 on the rock charts and No. 1 on the bluegrass charts. “Basically ‘Who’s Feeling Young’ was a chance for us to try and simplify a lot the ideas we were having,” Eldridge said. Some of the music we had made

in the past has been kind of dominated by the head as opposed to the heart and body. Eldridge said this record was a chance for the band to let their original ideas stand on their own as opposed to having too much alteration. “In the past we have ideas and wrapped them up in all sorts of fancy ribbons and bows,” he said. These changes came in keeping its music pure at heart and leaving a more raw style not only musically, but lyrically as well. “We tried to strip away a lot of the artifice that we maybe would have applied in the past,” Eldridge said. “It’s the same basic musical identity that we’ve had as a band. It’s just refining the ideas down and making them more direct.” Included in the album is the cover of the Radiohead single “Kid A.” Part of the reason for that cover was not only to enjoy the song, but to gain a better understanding. “Radiohead is also a band that I think most musicians surround these days,” Eldridge said. “We admire Radiohead tremendously. ‘Kid A’ is a song that we worked out partially on our own to get to the heart of why that song was so good.” The Punch Brothers often do covers at their live shows ranging from Radiohead and the Strokes, to Georgia’s own Allman Brothers. The inspirations have always been a key piece to the progressive outfit. “There’s so many things over the years have been so important and they all over time, the things that you love, become enamored in your own musical identity,” Eldridge said. In turn Eldridge hopes that the music that the band generates, jump starts creativity with the listener. “I think it’s important to listen to as much great music as you can and hopefully the things that really affect you, the listener, will crop off into your creative process,” he said.
