Discouraged defense

After leading 20-6 in the first half of Saturday’s game, OSU’s defense took an unexpected hit by Nebraska.


After the Ohio State Board of Trustees approved a plan to sell university parking to a private vendor for up to $375 million, some students and faculty members are looking to other major cities like Indianapolis and Chicago to speculate possible outcomes. University officials are not revealing exactly how the $375 million figure was calculated. A public records request for the formula was denied due to trade secrets, officials said. President E. Gordon Gee told The Lantern the figure is simply just a number for a request for proposal but that he expects the deal to bring in more money for OSU. “If we can’t do much better than that, then we won’t do it,” Gee said. OSU has not yet selected a vendor for the parking proposal. Qualified vendors now have until Nov. 2 to respond to a request for qualification, OSU announced in its Request for Concessionaire Qualifications. But some students think the $375 million deal is not the university’s best option. “The $375 million looks good right now, yes, but I just think in the long run it won’t benefit the university as a whole and our price tag,” said Michael

Gundich, first-year in industrial and visual design. In a similar move, the city of Indianapolis sold its parking meters to a private vendor, Affiliated Computer Services, in an effort to remodel the parking meter system in 2010. Kurt Fullbeck, project manager for the city of Indianapolis, said the reason for the switch was a technological one. “There was buzz for a push for more technologyfriendly meters. So ones that you can pay at with a credit card and there are multi-space meters available,” Fullbeck said. Fullbeck said the city’s parking transformation is a little different from what might be in the cards for OSU. “I’m not too familiar with OSU’s proposal, but it sounds like maybe they are considering selling their parking for just an up-front cost. Indianapolis’ parking is wired so that we did get a partial lump sum when we sold it. But, we still get a portion of all of the profit,” he said. ACS gave the city $20 million upfront and 20 percent of all profit to a point of sales, and then 25 percent thereafter, Fullbeck said. “We made the hybrid deal with ACS so that we would find a way to make some revenue, and still keep our citizens happy,” he said. Fullbeck said the city has received a lot of positive feedback. However, the city of Chicago did not choose to follow such a plan. In 2009, Mayor Richard Daley agreed to a 75-year meter lease for a one-time payment of $1.1 billion. The deal proved to be

Chicago-Sun Times columnist Carol Marin wrote about Chicago citizens’ boycott of meters. “When the City of Chicago privatized parking meters, rates were immediately jacked way up, and you now have to feed 28 quarters into the meters to

Gut shot Safety Daimion Stafford (3) tackles quarterback Braxton Miller (5) in the 1st quarter of an NCAA football game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers held at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb. on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011. OSU lost 34-27.

Alex Antonetz Arts editor Ohio State has paid a Columbus law firm nearly $142,000 to represent players employed by former booster Robert DiGeronimo during the NCAA’s investigation of their eligibility. Crabbe, Brown and James LLP has been paid $141,814.30 for this case alone as of mid-September, said Shelly Hoffman, assistant vice president for OSU Media Relations. Larry James, the attorney representing DeVier Posey, who was handed a five-game suspension by the NCAA for his involvement in the scandal, said he expected backlash from the release of the figure, but confirmed to The Lantern that the figure was correct. James also represented the players involved in “Tattoo-gate,” including former quarterback Terrelle Pryor, and the group of football players James referred to as the “Sports Illustrated 9.” The “Sports Illustrated 9” refers to nine current players, separate from the six players suspended for “Tattoo-gate,” “whose alleged wrongdoing might fall within the NCAA’s four-year statute of limitations,” according to a June 6 Sports Illustrated article. Hoffman did not immediately return requests asking for how much the firm was paid for representing athletes in those cases. OSU’s athletics department paid the fees out of its general operations fund, which student fees do not go toward, said Dan Wallenberg, associate athletics director for communications. He also said the funds for similar services could come out of the Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund, which was created by the NCAA in 2003 to provide direct benefits to student-athletes or their families, and is generated by NCAA basketball tournament

‘Occupy Columbus’ joins other protests around the nation including this one in New York City.

A movement that began with an “occupation” of New York City has found its way to Columbus in a rally Monday outside the Statehouse. Calling themselves “Occupy Columbus” supporters of the somewhat underground movement gathered beginning at 8 a.m. Monday outside the Statehouse and continued well into the evening. This gathering seemed to share the same sentiment of the economicmovement in New York that is receiving mainstream media attention. “We are the 99 percent and we demand to be heard,” read several signs at the protest. The 99 percent that is being referred to both in Columbus and in New York is the 99 percent of America that is not part of the richest 1 percent of the nation. Protesters said they want change and not just political jargon meant to score an electoral win. The change they seek is

transformative even if it is hard to define. At the heart of the movement, it is about economics. Multiple protesters spoke about economics and the capitalist system. Arthur Brehm, a fifth-year in history, described capitalism as “broken.” Brehm said his mother was a seamstress and his father is a welder. Brehm said he attended to “dramatize a shameful condition” in the decline of the middle class over the last few decades. Brehm called the movement a “populist rage.” Dan Horton, a student at Ohio University, disagreed with Brehm. “Capitalism is not the problem, lack of understanding what is capitalism is the problem,” Horton said. Conflicting statements were the norm at this rally because this movement does not seem to have one clear goal. It, like the movement in New York, seems to be defined by finances for one person and for others, it is defined by political and governmental change.

campus AEP clients jolted with illegal charges JeNelle cooPer Lantern reporter American Electric Power is giving customers $78 million in credits for unlawful charges by the company. The charges were rendered illegal by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on Oct. 3. A repayment plan devised by the PUCO allows customers to save on future bills. The amount of money owed to each customer will be credited to future bills. The amount refunded will depend on the amount owed to each customer. An explanation of the repayment will come with each customer’s next bill and the repayment will span a few months. The case was brought to the Ohio Supreme Court, after some charges were deemed illegal by the PUCO. The Supreme Court allowed the PUCO to come up with a plan to fix the charges. The illegal charge includes “the provider of last resort” charge. The POLR charge is supposed to cover the

investment that AEP has to make to ensure that all customers have enough electricity at all times. Jeff Rennie, an AEP media contact, said the charges will be refunded from June 2011 until the date mandated by the PUCO. “The charges from dates before June 2011 cannot be refunded because the PUCO doesn’t have jurisdiction over the situation before that date,” he said. The POLR charge for a typical customer using 1000 kilowatts of power a month is $5.70 a month, according to Rennie. Josh Boyer, fourth-year in microbiology, said he is happy about having to pay less money and thinks the AEP plan to refund the money is a good one. “Giving credit to bills is a fair way to give the money back,” Boyer said. “I can’t think of a better way myself.” Andrea Mueller, a fourth-year in strategic communications and German, said she thought the extra charges were unfair. “It’s unfair to add extra charges,” Mueller said. “Especially for college students who aren’t going to scrutinize the details of their bills.”

Major changes for Arts and Sciences thailyr ScriVNer Lantern reporter Starting Winter Quarter 2012, Ohio State’s College of Arts and Sciences will be offering new majors and minors on topics ranging from weather to Jewish history to accommodate student needs. New majors include atmospheric sciences, geographic information science (GIS), neuroscience, sexual studies, new media and communication technology. Critical and cultural theory and oral Jewish history will be offered as minors. These programs had been in the design phase for a while and were created with the semester switch in mind, said Steve Fink, associate executive dean of curriculum and instruction for the College of Arts and Sciences. There are now 83 majors available in the college with the addition of the new majors. There are now nearly 150 minors available at OSU. These were the new majors and minors chosen due to student interest, student demands and different department interests, with the top demand being neuroscience, said Elizabeth Alcalde, arts and sciences communications director. “It’s a collaboration (between) arts and sciences and the medical college,” Alcalde said. “We’re trying to be flexible so that students have more career opportunities.” The neuroscience major has a developed

pathway that will lead students from an undergraduate degree into medical school. Rick McClish, an undergraduate academic adviser in geography, said he is aware of one person being hired in the geography department to teach courses in the new majors. He said hires over the past few years have allowed the departments to offer these subjects as majors rather than specializations. “As soon as the notification (about new majors) went out from arts and sciences, I was getting requests within that first week,” McClish said about atmospheric sciences and GIS. Cory Martin, a third-year in geography, said he was declared as a geography major with only a specialization in atmospheric sciences before. “It’s basically the same classes and everything it just looks better on a transcript now with (atmospheric sciences) as a major instead of a specialization,” Martin said. “It’s definitely better and will be less confusing to potential employers.” Even with the major starting to be offered in his third year at OSU, Martin said he can still graduate in four years. He has been planning for the major to become official since he first heard about its beginning stages his first year at OSU. McClish said the addition of new majors are at no additional cost to departments. “The discipline has evolved within the years and we wanted to make sure we were up to date with the current state of the major and the field of geography and meteorology,” McClish said.

New additions to the Arts and Sciences Starting Winter Quarter 2012, the College of Arts and Sciences will be adding seven new majors, minors and programs to its already extensive repertoire. For more information, schedule an appointment with your adviser.

Nick Dekker, curator of “Breakfast with Nick” enjoys a donut at Buckeye Donuts on oct. 10, 2011.

Breakfast blogger cooks up book katie harrimaN Lantern reporter Nick Dekker spends his days introducing students to theatre at Ohio State, and his mornings introducing the people of Columbus to the best breakfasts in town. Dekker, 32, is a lecturer in OSU’s theatre department, but he’s quickly gaining recognition for his side job: reviewing restaurants on his blog, “Breakfast with Nick.” His online reviews led to columns in (614) Magazine and Food City Columbus, and a guest spot in the breakfast documentary, “Breakfast Special,” which aired on the Public Broadcasting Service in July 2010. On Nov. 5, he will release his first book, “Breakfast with Nick: Columbus.” Instead of choosing one of his passions, Dekker has embraced them all. He and his wife, Beth Dekker, are co-founders of Wild Goose Creative, a non-profit arts collective in Columbus. They started the organization with a few college friends as an incubator where there are performances, art, workshops, classes and concerts almost every night. They started the arts collective around the same time they had their first son, 3-year-old Will Decker, and on Aug. 21, they welcomed their second child, Owen Samuel Dekker. Although Nick Dekker grew up loving breakfast in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., he never imagined it would become a career. “Breakfast and food writing was nowhere in there,” Nick Dekker said. “I ate breakfast a lot, but that was it.” Four years ago, Nick Dekker started blogging to keep track of the breakfast spots they visited. “It started just as a hobby,” Nick Dekker said. “Part of what I do is teach history, and I’ve studied history, so I definitely had this instinct to record and preserve things.” Nick Dekker said he realized the blog was becoming popular when people started contacting him to tell him they found it useful, or to give him suggestions of restaurants to visit. After going to almost every spot in Columbus, Nick Dekker said he figured the next step was to write a book. He teamed up with photographer Robin Oatts to complete his vision for the project. Oatts said finding new, creative ways to photograph the food was the most challenging part of the process. “After a while you start to wonder what else you can do to make scrambled eggs look different and appetizing,” Oatts said in an email. Oatts said the most rewarding part about making the book was eating the food, hearing the restaurant owners brag about it and watching Nick

Dekker do what he loves. “Like a lot of the owners of these restaurants, Nick genuinely enjoys all things breakfast. It was common to catch the look of a little kid in a candy store at these shoots,” Oatts said. “It will be awesome to see his project come to completion.” “Breakfast with Nick: Columbus” includes more than 200 restaurants, sorted by location. It covers everything from greasy diners to upscale spots to farmer’s markets to breakfast trucks. Some of the restaurants are listed with a short description, while about 30 are expanded on with a more in-depth story. After talking to Buckeye Donuts’ owner, Jimmy Barouxis, Nick Dekker said he realized that the focus of the book should be more on the history of the restaurants, not just the menu. “No one needs a book that’s 150 pages of ‘the eggs here are good, and the bacon was good, and I like the toast,’” Nick Dekker said. “It’s much more interesting to hear the history of these places.” As a third-generation owner of Buckeye Donuts, history is especially important to Barouxis. His grandfather opened the shop in 1969, then passed it down to his son, who left it to Barouxis. Barouxis said he is grateful for the recognition. “It feels good. It feels like maybe what I’m putting into this place I’ll get back,” Barouxis said with a tear running down his cheek. “I want to do my family right, my grandpa and my father, they’re both passed away, so I want to keep it going. That’s what they would want to see.” Barouxis said he hopes the book will help give Columbus more of an identity as a city with great breakfast. “I think it’s really cool that somebody is going out of their way to go to all these places, do all this work and research to showcase and highlight some places that normally wouldn’t get any attention,” Barouxis said. With a new baby and a book release on its way, the Dekkers plan to continue their hectic pursuit of happiness, family and all things breakfast. “We’re crazy people. We don’t do anything small,” Beth Dekker said. “Will was raised at Wild Goose. Our second son will be raised with the breakfast book as sort of his backdrop.” Beth and Nick Dekker are anxiously awaiting the day Owen Dekker will be able to join the breakfast club. “Owen seems to be a morning person just like his older brother and his old man. Both he and Will wake up at 7 a.m. on the dot,” Nick said. “So he’s clearly getting ready to eat scrambled eggs on toast soon.” “Breakfast with Nick: Columbus” will be sold for $20 on and at local shops, including The Hills Market, The Book Loft, Katalina’s Cafe Corner and DK Diner.

Economics professor said athletes’ free legal counsel is ‘outrageous.’ revenue. However, the athletic department didn’t dip into the fund on this instance so as not to deplete the fund for other student athletes, Wallenberg said. NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said according to NCAA rule 16.3.2, the cost of legal representation is allowed to be provided by the university in any investigation into a student-athlete’s eligibility. Requests for comment from OSU President E. Gordon Gee, OSU athletic director Gene Smith and OSU associate athletic director for compliance Doug Archie were not immediately returned Monday night. For non-athletes, Student Legal Services provides court representation to students in cases involving Franklin County Municipal Court, Franklin County Common Pleas Court, 10th District Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Ohio, according to its website. However, students must pay a $40 fee for the service encompassing the school year from Aug. 1 to July 31, which students had the ability to opt-out of. Students can also pay the fee on a quarterly basis. Richard Vedder, who studies higher education financing and is a retired economics professor from Ohio University, said he does not believe universities

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS should provide athletes free legal counsel. “I’ve never heard anything so outrageous in my life,” Vedder said. Vedder said the current system in college sports is corrupt because schools are unfairly representing athletes. Vedder, however, said athletes drawing income for the university but not being paid was “athletic child molestation.” Still, Vedder doesn’t agree with OSU paying for athletes’ lawyers. He said the university could spend the money on libraries or helping to lower tuition. Auburn University paid $170,000 in attorney fees to represent former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton from November 2009 through February 2010 during the NCAA’s investigation into his eligibility, according to Feb. 9 report in The Birmingham News. Michigan paid more than $600,000 in attorney fees for an infractions case involving former head football coach Rich Rodriguez in 2010, according to a report in Senior running back Dan Herron and sophomore offensive lineman Marcus Hall, who were also employed by DiGeronimo, were suspended only for Saturday’s game at Nebraska. Junior defensive lineman Melvin Fellows was also involved but is out with a career-ending injury, as well as senior linebacker Etienne Sabino, who was permitted to play so long as he repaid the $60 he was overpaid to a charitable organization.

There was no one person in charge at the rally on Monday; instead a group of people would talk through a loudspeaker to the hundreds that attended throughout the day. One common enemy of those gathered is the media and their lack of attention to the movement, Horton said. Demonstrators said that mainstream media have been quiet on the protests on Wall Street, in part because media companies are corporately controlled. “People in the media can’t get a sound byte from us about what we want … so they dismiss us,” Horton said. Kyle Reasinger, a Columbus artist heading to New York this weekend, said he believes the movement will grow and move away from corporate greed and more to a world movement saying “Free your mind and your a-- will follow.” Political analysts have charged the national movement as being the liberal answer to the Tea Party. While some liberals attended Columbus’ rally, the overall message seemed to be that government and the corporate donations allowing politicians to survive are the problem, rather than one political ideology. Horton said the problem arises from corporate greed. “The top 1 percent has most of the wealth while the middle class is diminishing,” Horton said. “We need to stand now or we will live in corporatecontrolled America.” Another common charge of the movement is that it is solely comprised of youth who are not aware of the real world. While at the Columbus rally, the vast majority of attendee’s were young and presumably college-aged, there were several noticeably older attendees. Andrew Stoner, a federal government employee, said he attended because he believes the issue of

‘occupy columbus’ joins other protests around the nation, including this one in Washington, D.c. economic disparity and change is one that crosses age and racial divides. “We’re all in this together,” Stoner said. “Crappy citizens make crappy political leaders; we need to have influence, we need to get involved.” Monday was a federal holiday, so no members of the Ohio State Legislature were present at the Statehouse. A request for comment from Gov. John Kasich’s office was unanswered. The protesters plan to meet again Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. at Bicentennial Park to protest during the General Assembly. Horton had a message for the 1 percent. “The 1 percent needs to hear us and be accountable,” Horton said.

The Chicago Tribune also reported that the city took big losses by privatizing its parking. “But records show meter revenue had risen to nearly $22.6 million in 2007 from $19 million in 2005. That 18.5 percent increase far outpaced inflation, indicating the meter system was becoming more valuable,” Tribune reporter Hal Dardick wrote in 2010. Gee said the city of Chicago had the wrong model. “The folks in Chicago had the wrong model because they didn’t put it into any sort of endowment,” he said. “They made a mistake. We won’t.” The City Budget Office of Chicago failed to return several calls from The Lantern.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that more than 60 percent of an upfront payment could be needed to pay off bonds, run campus buses, and pay for other transportation functions. However, Geoffrey Chatas, the university’s chief financial officer, told The Lantern the money will be used to fund scholarships, on-campus transportation and transportation research. Futhermore, Gee said parking rates were raised 8 to 10 percent since last year. “People that complain that if we sell to a thirdparty vendor that the rates would go through the roof, they are already going through the roof,” Gee said. “Of course we will negotiate to keep them down.” After expenses of enforcement, maintenance and parking facilities, OSU is expected to gain $3,684,805 from parking permit sales and event parking costs in 2011, according to projected data from OSU Transportation and Parking.

CODY COUSINO/ Photo editor

LINCOLN, Neb. —An upset of No. 14 Nebraska seemed possible for Ohio State last Saturday as the Buckeyes took a 27-6 lead against the Cornhuskers. Nebraska staged a late comeback to win the game, 34-27, and one OSU player said the Buckeyes were “out-schemed.” The run-oriented Cornhuskers had managed just 37 yards on the ground and there was no indication things were about to change. “We felt good,” OSU head coach Luke Fickell said. “We were playing well and doing what we planned on doing.” But the plan went awry. After the OSU offense took its first drive of the second half for a touchdown to give them a 27-6 lead, Nebraska exploded for 28 unanswered points and completed the biggest comeback in program history. The Cornhuskers totaled 195 rushing yards in the second half, most of which came from Nebraska sophomore quarterback Taylor Martinez and junior running back Rex Burkhead. Both players ended the game with more than 100 yards. The Buckeye defense has not allowed 28 points in an entire game this season, let alone a single half. Senior linebacker Andrew Sweat said he hadn’t seen anything like it in his career.

“I’ve never been a part of anything like that,” Sweat said. “I don’t know what the magical answer is. We just didn’t get the job done.” Senior linebacker Tyler Moeller attributed the breakdown to halftime adjustments Nebraska made that OSU wasn’t prepared for. “They just out-schemed us,” Moeller said. “They changed up their play a little bit and we weren’t in the right gaps and they scored on us. They outplayed us.” Defensive coordinator Jim Heacock made no excuses for the defense’s collapse after the game. He said his defensive unit just couldn’t get the Nebraska offense off the field and may have gotten a little tired. “That could be mental, physical, I’m not sure what it was, but no excuses. To me, they just took it to us that second half on both sides of the ball,” Heacock said. “We needed to step up, somebody needed to make a play. We needed a turnover, we needed to do something and did not get it done.” After the game, the players were frustrated with the loss, but insisted they wouldn’t give up. “It hurts,” Moeller said. “But one thing about our team is that we fought.” The Buckeyes (3-3, 0-2 Big Ten) travel to Illinois next week to take on the Fighting Illini on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Nebraska junior running back Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown against OSU on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011. Nebraska won, 34-27.

Braxton Miller still No. 1: Freshman QB will start at Illinois Michael Periatt Asst. sports editor Freshman Braxton Miller is listed as the starting quarterback for Ohio State in their upcoming game against Illinois with senior Joe Bauserman as his backup, according to the team’s latest depth chart.

Crew v. Chicago Fire Oct. 22, 8:30pm @ Toyota Park, Bridgeview, Ill.

Miller injured his right ankle with 4:45 remaining in the third quarter in Saturday’s game against Nebraska and never returned. Before his departure, Miller threw for 95 yards and a touchdown on 5-of-8 passing and ran for 91 yards on 10 carries. Bauserman replaced Miller after the injury and completed 1-of-10 passes for 13 yards and was intercepted once.

Nebraska rallied from a 21-point deficit in the game to beat the Buckeyes 34-27. The comeback was the largest in the Cornhuskers’ football program history. Senior running back Dan “Boom” Herron, who returns from suspension this week, was not listed on the depth chart. Junior Jordan Hall was listed as the starting running back with sophomore Carlos Hyde at second string.

Herron was suspended five games for his role in “Tattoo-gate” and one more game for taking $292.50 for work he didn’t perform. OSU (3-3, 0-2 Big Ten) travels to Illinois’ Memorial Stadium on Saturday to take on the No. 14-ranked Fighting Illini (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) at 3:30 p.m.

OSU is 8-6 on the season, and junior forwards Berta Queralt and Danica Deckard are tied for fifth in the Big Ten with nine goals apiece. Next up: Michigan State, Friday, Oct. 14, 3 p.m. in East Lansing, Mich.

THOMAS BRADLEY/ Campus editor

OSU freshman quarterback Braxton Miller lay injured on the field during the 3rd quarter of the Buckeyes’ 34-27 loss to Nebraska on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011.

Men’s Soccer While head coach John Bluem said his team was “embarrassed” in their 3-2 loss to Northwestern on Sunday, the Buckeyes standing in the Big Ten is something to be proud of. Ohio State is tied for first in the conference with six points with Wisconsin. After winning three of their last five matches, the team is 7-5-1 on the season. Junior forward Chris Hegngi leads the Big Ten in points with 16, and has scored four goals in the last five games.



The Buckeyes beat Northwestern, 3-1, on Oct. 8, improving to 13-6 on the season. After losing back-to-back games to Wisconsin and No. 1-ranked Illinois, the win has Ohio State tied for fifth in the Big Ten with Michigan State, Minnesota and Wisconsin, posting a 3-3 record. Junior Emily Danks is second in the conference with 39 service aces. OSU leads the Big Ten with 16.18 digs per game as a team. Next up: Indiana, Friday, Oct. 14, 7 p.m. in Bloomington, Ind.

After defeating Wisconsin, 1-0, on Oct. 2, the Buckeyes lost to Purdue 2-1 in West Lafayette, Ind., and are now 8-5-1. Their 3-2-1 record in Big Ten play has them tied for third in the conference along with Illinois and Michigan. Senior goalkeeper Katie Baumgardner is tied for fourth in the conference with four shutouts. Junior forward Tiffany Cameron has continued to lead OSU in points with 10, scoring a goal in three of the team’s last four games. Next up: Iowa, Friday, Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium

Next up: Valparaiso, Sunday, Oct. 16, 2 p.m. in Valparaiso, Ind.

Men’s Cross Country The Buckeyes haven’t raced since their 12th place finish at the Notre Dame Invitational on Sept. 30. After dropping out of the race, top-runner and former Big Ten runner of the week Jake Edwards said he should be ready to go for the team’s upcoming meet in Wisconsin this Friday. The Wisconsin Adidas Invitational on Oct. 14 is the team’s last big invitational before the Big Ten championship meet in Illinois on Oct. 30. After finishing seventh at the Big Ten meet last season, coach Robert Gary said the team wants to finish in the top three in the conference this season. Next up: Wisconsin Adidas Invitational, Friday, Oct. 14 in Madison, Wis.

Nathanson hoping to get love in Columbus

releases music

KATIE HARRIMAN Lantern reporter Matt Nathanson will bring his evolved sound to the Newport Music Hall tonight at 6 p.m. on his “All Night Noise” tour. Nathanson’s latest release and eighth album, “Modern Love,” debuted at No. 17 on Billboard’s album chart. The new record has a different sound for the singer/ songwriter, who is best known for his Top 40 hit “Come on Get Higher” from the 2007 album “Some Mad Hope.” Nathanson said he loves playing rock with a full band, but he also loves playing the acoustic, solo shows. “That’s the thing that’s great about records is that I can make them any way I want, forever, depending on how I’m feeling,” Nathanson told The Lantern. “It’s a badass way if you’re completely self-absorbed. This record wanted to be big and loud and driven.” Nathanson said his shows and music have changed since he first performed at the Newport Music Hall in 2003 with just an acoustic guitar and a cello player. “They were fun then, but now they’re really good,” Nathanson said. “The evolution of the music has mirrored my evolution as a person. That’s what art does if you’re being honest, it directly reflects who you are.” Nathanson said “Modern Love,” inspired by the feeling of music from bands like Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode and Echo and the Bunnymen, was the most natural record he’s made. “I’m a humongous nerd for music,” Nathanson said. “I’m a huge fan of records by other people. You sort of grow up studying everyone else’s music and then try and make your own version of it. For me the records just sound and function better, and get closer to sounding and working like records I loved as a kid.” Nathanson is known for his personable stage presence and humorous stories between songs, but said he doesn’t believe in the music itself being funny.

Matt Nathanson is scheduled to perform at Newport Music Hall Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. Nathanson compared his shows to “hanging out with someone at a party.” That is one reason Begovic is traveling from Cleveland for Tuesday’s show. “The whole show is entertaining. That’s the best part,” Begovic said. “The songs are great, he rocks out hard, and then in between the songs he’s just as entertaining. He tells stories, his banter is a lot of fun.” Katherine Rettew, a fourth-year in English, said she also loves his interaction with the audience.

“He’s there to have a great time and have fun with his audience,” Rettew said. “It’s fun and upbeat.” Nathanson said the future of his sound belongs to the songs. “There will be more rocking records to come, and then I’d love to make a very quiet acoustic record,” Nathanson said. “I don’t know what the next one will want to be. It’s fun though. The best part is sort of waiting to see what the songs want.”

“That’s what is so great about being able to play live,” Nathanson said. “I can make jokes and play these f---ing songs that are like, from my heart, wrenched out of my soul and then we can bust into a White Snake cover.” The songs on “Modern Love” deal with the struggles of relationships in a modern world, Nathanson wrote on his blog, “Everyone I know was going through personal relationship crisis,” he wrote on his blog. “Divorce, affairs, being alone, being newly in love.” Nathanson explained that the hard times others were going through ended up affecting him. “At first I thought all the songs on ‘Modern Love’ were about other people, their relationships, but then I realized they were inspired by other people but came through me,” Nathanson said. “Kiss Quick” was the hardest song for Nathanson to write because it kept evolving and changing, but ended up being the song that defined the album as a whole. The most personal song on the album for Nathanson, “Drop to Hold You,” came the easiest. “Sometimes you fight with certain songs to get them to do what you want, but the ones that feel like they’re the most personal will just show up,” Nathanson said. Keeping with the theme of love and music in a modern world, Nathanson said he struggled with the age of social media. “In order to play music, which is all I’ve ever wanted to do, I feel like there’s become this crucial component that has to do with being on television or having your personality shown through Facebook or Twitter or blog,” Nathanson said. “The only reason I do things like that is because it allows me to play music to more people. I really am kind of old school in that way that I just want to play f---ing music and write songs and do things within that sphere.” OSU alumnus Marko Begovic has listened to Nathanson since 2003. “When I first heard the new album, I was shocked,” Begovic said. “It doesn’t sound like his past albums, but I liked it right off the bat. You can see the evolution of him over all these songs.”

We’re living in revolutionary times. It may be hard for college students to step out of the library long enough to get a good look at the world. But even a glance at Facebook and Twitter on any given day will inundate the average user in news stories that spell out which Republican presidential nominee dodged tough questions about the gay community, the effects of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” or how the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York has sent a message to states without

similar measures. Any cursory glance around Columbus will show a vibrant gay community walking among their heterosexual peers largely unafraid of retribution for leading what used to be, at best, deemed an “alternative lifestyle” and at worst, considered a serious threat to the foundation of society. Considering the rapid pace of progress on just about every front in the battle for equality in the gay community, I often find myself putting my feet up and taking it easy. After all, the movement has built up enough inertia to resolve itself, it seems. And like me, many people who spent time in the trenches battling against misconceptions and outright discrimination among their own families and small town communities show up in Columbus, one of the friendliest cities on the planet for the LGBT community, and find themselves content to go with the flow as the national battle for equality is fought by others on the national stage. But for every headline pronouncing another victory for the gay community in their pursuit of equal marriage rights or the chance to openly serve

their country, there is a more disturbing story describing teenagers who commit suicide amid bullying about their perceived sexuality, no matter how they personally identify. While I am proud to be living in a time in which the issues that have long affected the community are being debated and often progressed, it is clear that the discrimination against gays extends well beyond legal questions of marriage or military service. I have been out as a gay male for four years, and in the long process of coming out I found that it is not the big questions of marriage or military service that determined how I felt about being different. It didn’t matter if there were representative gay men and women on TV (but “Degrassi: The Next Generation” did help), it mattered how my brothers reacted. I wasn’t wondering if I could get married one day, I found myself in the middle of my high school career wondering if I would have any friends left. That’s not to say that the civil liberties for the LGBT community is not important, but it will not be the

big battles waged across the country that determine the fate of the next gay teenager who is teetering on the edge of hopelessness, it will be whether the people who were closest to him reach out to comfort him and guide him through a process that is as terrifying as it is confusing. It is National Coming Out Day Tuesday, but instead of passively sitting back and waiting for someone close to make the move and step out of the closet, make it clear to all of those around you that sexual orientation has no impact on the value of friendship. Call someone out for spreading hate-filled speech that serves only to isolate those who are already in a high-pressure situation. While many might say, “It gets better,” it is more apt to say “You have to make it better, for yourself and those around you,” so take a proactive stance and reach out in as many ways as possible. In a war for cultural acceptance of a still-oppressed minority that has claimed lives, there is little room for rest. Yes, we live in revolutionary times, but there is much work to be done.

Whether in Britney’s Army or Rihanna’s Navy, stans need to surrender to sanity ARTS Columnist VANESSA SPATES

Being a music fan isn’t just being an inactive listener anymore. Now fans act like built-in, unpaid promo teams for their favorite musician. They’re labeled as “stans,” a word derived from Eminem’s controversial song, “Stan.” I know the in-depth detailed life of a stan because I am one. I’m one of those Lady Gaga fans, the only fan base that has been featured in Time, being called the hardest working fan base in the world. I don’t call myself a “Little Monster” but people tend to label me that way. Being a part of such a huge and diverse fan base, I’ve come across some of the strangest people. But obviously

Monsters aren’t the only fan base that works hard to keep its pop star relevant. You have 30 Seconds To Mars’ Echelon, Justin Bieber’s prepubescent Beliebers, Rihanna’s Navy, Nicki Minaj’s Barbs, Beyonce’s Bey Hive, Katy Perry’s KatyCats, and Britney Spears’ Army. This separation of fan bases has been looked at as cultish and extremely segregated and if you take it seriously enough, it can be psychologically worrying. Never before have fans taken an active approach in making sure their favorite pop star is succeeding. While 30 Seconds To Mars’ Echelon has been called that for many years, it wasn’t until Gaga started calling her fans Little Monsters, that the naming

of fans occurred. The biggest problem with all these “stan bases” is the intense and often out-ofcontrol competition that occurs between fans. Spears and Gaga fans are always at each other’s throats, while Beliebers tend to annoy the entire Twitter universe with constant trending topics about how Justin is the “King of Swag.” The Navy and Bey Hive consistently hate each other. Most fan bases ignore KatyCats though, since they’re not sure that fan base actually exists. For the general public looking at the mess of fans fighting for their pop stars’ survival, I can see how they would label the entire thing as insanity. But unless you’re a music industry freak like Adele, who has

no discernible fan base and is still destroying the charts with her singles and album, having a strong fan base almost guarantees you relevancy in this ever-changing music industry. With social media, celebrities interact with their fans more than they ever have before. This is causing a bond but also creating a façade that the fan knows the star personally, which can be dangerous for unstable people. I try to look at the situation as beneficial and highly entertaining. I never take stans too seriously, because it is supposed to be fun. There’s a very thin line between loving a pop star and thinking you’re their best friend.
