LOSS TO WVU TOTALLY NOT GARY NOVA'S FAULT BY SUM DUM JOO NEWS EDITOR

BUSCH—For the first half of Saturday's home football game, it looked like the Scarlet Knights would finally break their losing streak against West Virginia University. But, through a series of bad situations, the Rutgers Football team lost by ten points to the Mountaineers. "I don't know what happened," said Coach Greg Schiano. "Everything was lined up for us. We were ten points ahead at halftime and Gary Nova was spot-on the entire game." Indeed, freshman quarterback Gary Nova was certainly the star of the game on Saturday, despite the loss, and absolutely nothing he did could be attributed to the failure of the Knights. "It was the failure of the team as a whole," continued Schiano, "to lose a ten point lead and give the other team the same lead in the course of half an hour cannot be blamed on one person who completely shattered under pressure." Most of the problems of the game could be blamed on the

Alcoholic 'treats' cause Halloween tricks NEW BRUNSWICK—Rather than distribute candy this year, Rutgers University students decided to do something more community-based and offer shots to trick-or-treaters. "I figure, you know, Rutgers students might LIKE candy, but they definitely LOVE getting shitty­­—so I bought a quart of Travelers Club in case students decided to knock up for us," said Fraternity leader Shawn Brown. Reports indicate that 90% of all Rutgers students who go trick-or-treating are not only confused about their age, but are also easily susceptible to alcohol poisoning. "Once I heard people were giving out shots of booze, I decided to go trick-or-treating to pre-game. I made it through eight houses," slurred a random inebriated Rutgers student.

QUICKIES

Rutgers University Emergency Services were called into action all throughout the night to deal with floods of alcoholinduced vomit on College Avenue and other off-campus roads, which caused traffic jams and reportedly ruined at least 75 pairs of Uggs. Due to the excessive and reckless intoxication of the student population on Halloween night, New Brunswick's city council has enacted legislation which will subject any alcohol dispensation by home owners on subsequent Halloweens to mandatory chuggings of Smirnoff Ice, and for repeat offenders, systematic hazing by each and every fraternal organization on campus. "That's a lot of brooms up a lot of asses. I think next Halloween I'll just give out Snickers like everyone else," said Rutgers student Jack Penrose.

MAGIC, MAGIC, MATCHICK

GOING INSHANE PRESENTS...

RUTGERS ALUMNI OF THE WEEK PROFILE Name: Todd Matchick Years: 1982 - 1986 Degree: Psychology Residence: Davidson (Busch) Recognized by: Everyone Drink: Jameson Occupation: Bartender Hobby: Power-lifting “Kudos to the alumni association for realizing the need to bring in young people.”

KEEPING UP WITH

TODD MATCHICK

“It has been almost a year since I was kicked out of the Breakfast Club in Old Bridge, NJ. That night was the worst drinking outing of my life…specifically due to hard liquor.

For nearly one year I managed to stay away from Jameson. But as a journalist, sometimes you have to step up to the plate in order to get a good story.” -The Killa Whale

This week, I want to introduce Rutgers to a man that once walked on the same sidewalks we do. Chances are if you live in New Brunswick, you probably know him or have taken a shot of whiskey with him. His name is Todd Matchick, Rutgers alumni and bartender at Doll’s Place on Joyce Kilmer Ave. I was warned by a friend of mine (Matchick’s ex-roommate) that if you’re going to drink with him, I better be prepared to drink. Knowing this, I took the train to New Brunswick last Wednesday to meet with him at

Harvest Moon. I knew I’d probably be leaving inebriated. But let’s not get carried away, Matchick is not a monster. He’s a great guy and had plenty of stories full of rich history at Rutgers. Until I met him last week, I didn’t know Rutgers had a lightweight football team that competed against other universities such as Penn State, Army, Navy, and Cornell. Either way, after spending three hours with Matchick, barhopping from Harvest Moon to Due Mari to Old Man Rafferty’s, I learned why this man is considered a legend.

Todd invented whiskey, the shot of whiskey, and the pint of whiskey.

MY STATS

I went shot-for-shot with Todd but by the time we hit Due Mari, he won.

King Peter III of Aragon died as a result of death. He is best known for directing The Lord of the Rings trilogy and playing the role of Hermoine in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. After retiring from his acting/directing career he invented a time machine and conquered Sicily to become one of the greatest monarchs in history. -Professorsaurus

INTERVIEW WITH THE BARTENDER Killa Whale: So I heard you helped your roommate not graduate? Tell me more, please. Todd: It was my sophomore year and his freshman year. We called ourselves roommates but we really just lived in the same dorm (Davidson). Let’s just say, he took the party-life very easily with me. KW: What’s your favorite memory at Rutgers, in regards to partying? T: Well, it was a lot different back then. People could drink in their dorms, openly. Frat parties openly invited people, advertised their kegs. Back in ’83 several friends and I realized we weren’t going to be together for New Year’s…so we threw a New Year’s Eve party on Halloween! We carved out a pumpkin, filled it with candy…AND WE DROPPED A PUMPKIN AT 12:23 AM. I still remember to this day, it was 12:23. KW: Haha, wow, why 12:23? T: Well, it wasn’t New Year’s! It didn’t matter! KW: Now, I notice everybody seems to know you. People just know to bring you whiskey shots. What are some of

the strangest places you’ve been recognized? T: It was at Poet’s Corner, Westminster Abbey, London, England. I was recognized by another Rutgers alumni. Also, the basement of the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Bozeman, Montana. KW: Wow, you’re a really recognizable figure. Your description of yourself on the phone earlier was spot-on, too; you do look like a Marine. T: Hawaii, too. “I know you from the gym!” KW: Speaking of the gym, you’re a big guy and I’m just

getting into power lifting. Any tips? T: You lift heavy weight. You do it right and you take care of fucking business. These guys today…what we do, is we do “tried and true” methods of lifting. I call it “overtraining.” KW: I can probably push up 200 lbs on the bar, which I think is good for only starting this year, how about you? T: I can probably still do fourand-a-quarter. KW: How about Rutgersfest? T: Rutgersfest? It used to be fun. Now you have guys shooting each other. What about the days where they had bands like Duran Duran? It was a time when people could go out and enjoy themselves. KW: Any advice for future generations? T: The RU Screw. You got your classes closed, parking tickets up your ass. “Oh, you didn’t know you needed this?” Well, too bad. Life isn’t fair, that’s what it teaches you. It teaches you to fend for yourself. It’s one of the best experiences and one of the worst. KW: You got that right, Todd.

LETTERS FROM THE BATTLEFIELD

Dear Mom, I just got your letter and care package. Thanks so much. The guys really appreciated some extra soap and rations. It’s been a lot of hard work out here fighting every day. Our armor is really heavy and it’s tough to sleep here. Yesterday I had to stay up 36 straight hours on my patrol duty. Once I had time to sleep I was just too wired. We lost James the other day, that nice guy from Minnesotta I told you about. These artsy guys just burst into our camp and took a bunch of us out. I think we must have taken out half of them too. Kinda makes you wonder what we’re doing out here. It all seems senseless once we see it in action. I’ll see you soon. Love, Michael

Johnny, Hey Johnny. We just got to our base outside of the Arts pages’ borders. It’s fucking boiling here every day and we haven’t seen any action yet. It’s just waiting with your gun, thinking one of those artsy bastards will jump out any

second. This whole fucking war is insane. The government can’t explain why we’re out here. You think General Marshall has the answers? Man, that guy came through our base a few days ago and he barely even got dirt on his shoes before he left. That rich guy gets to send us out here to die while he and his friends sit up in their goddamn ivory towers. Fucking draft just picks up poor drop-outs like you and me. Sorry man, take care of mom while I’m gone. I’ll be home soon. -Sam

Dear Miss, My company has been on the front lines for three days and I avail the opportunity to write to you. It’s been so long since I’ve seen your face and felt the touch of your hand. I can hardly remember the sound of your sweet voice. The memory of you is very dear to me. The thought of getting to come home to you keeps me going on the battlefield. I can not imagine the next time I will be home with you and the children. I long for the day that I see your rosy cheeks and blue eyes again. As we travel this difficult road towards endless fighting, remember I am always with you. George Master to Miss Amelia Howards

The Cries of Our Enemies BY KCIG ARTS EMPEROR

Location: Cambodia

‘Tis glorious to hear the enemy shriek and howl with pain as our troops take them down to hell and personally deliver their wretched souls directly to Satan. No sweeter sound has crossed my ears than that made by the terror of enemy civilians as their men are killed one-by-one by our artillery.

The Arts Page is strong! The Arts Page will prevail! The Arts Page shall reign over the right side of the centerfold for 1,000 years! My heart has never been so happy as when I heard the final breaths of the Opinions Page Army expelled as cries of agony. The only sound possibly as great is the silence of a blood-soaked battlefield littered with enemy corpses.

I thought you were talking in your sleep, but the noises continued. My only option was to flop over loudly, so you would know I was awake, and you promptly left the room. I just want you to know that I know what was going down, and I know that we will never make eye contact again. To My Roommate’s Weave, If you could stay on her head, that would be nice. Because today when I bent down to plug in my hair-dryer, I stood up and my knees looked like they belonged to a black Chewbacca. That is not something that I need right now. Or ever. (Methinks you might need a new roommate...) To the two girls I saw holding hands today outside records hall: $20 to watch you two fuck and pee on each other. Seriously, find me.

YODA SATANIC OF DESK THE FROM Thank you (seriously) to everyone (all twelve of you) who submitted valid entries to the Personals Contest! We have selected and notified the three winners. To those of you who did not win, sorry, there were other people funnier than you and better luck next time (the Exxxotica Convention comes around every year). Also, considering that this whole exercise went better than we thought it would (read: people actually participated), we will likely be holding other contests next semester once we come up with something worth giving away, like our editor-in-chief’s virginity (just kidding, she’s a whore). Check out all the entries that we got, I think we have enough space for all of them. Next week you’ll all get to meet the grand prize winner and not hear one of us bitch for a week. Although you can all make this poor bastard’s life a lot easier by submitting a lot of personals to TheMedium.Personals@Gmail.com. That would seriously be rad. ~Satanic Yoda, Senior Personals Editor

To my friend, I’m sorry that I made you stay on the phone with me that time I got wasted and thought I was gonna be lost forever because I got off at the wrong bus stop. It really helped to have you there while I walked in circles and cried for 20 minutes. Thanks for not getting mad when it turned out I was right next to my dorm the entire time.

(FINALLY something funny from you.)

To the guy in the wheel chair at the football game on Saturday afternoon, get out of the way the team is trying to get to the field and nobody cares about the handicapped. I’d say they’re going to hell but not even hell has elevators so because people in hell have standards. Normal people only pretend to care because they think driving around in a wheel chair is super awesome because you can be super lazy. They don’t know your pain, and I certainly don’t give a shit. (Okay I’m the Personals Editor and even I think that’s fucked up. Seriously dude, if you’re gonna rag on a cripple at least send him downhill into oncoming traffic or something. And I hope you aren’t talking about Eric LeGrande because I really don’t want the University to hate me more than they already do.) To the guy in the wheel chair at the football game on Saturday afternoon, does your loser cart even have four-wheel drive? I hope so cuz its snowing cat and balls out here. (Alrighty then, sounds like that is who you were talking about...and that makes both of us complete, utter assholes. Isn’t it fun?)

YOUR WEEKLY ALBUM REVIEW

Arc in Round - Diagonal Fields Reviewed by: Joe Scala Arc In Round is a 4 piece group out of Philly. They experiment with a lot of different sounds, from synth to spacey guitar effects. A lot of these songs have a darker sound. I don’t know why, but some of it reminds me of something Dream Theater or Between The Buried and Me would do on their experimental tracks. Still, there is nothing metal or technical about this band at all. Vocals can be spacey and somewhat haunting at times. Some of MY CHILDREN, THERE IS A MEETING OF THE MEDIUM THIS the songs have a slower feel and seem to drag on for a VERY NIGHT IN THE BCC. IT WILL BE AT 8PM. COME OR DIE little too long. RIYL: Kids on A Crime Spree, Noise-Pop, Mogwai Buscemi’s here somewhere...
