JACK MOORE Lantern reporter Who are you? The question bombards us every time we check our e-mail, log on to a library computer or schedule classes, though we seldom think about it in that way. It proves that the age-old question of identity has not escaped the digital age. But for Ohio State students, faculty and staff, the answer is usually not the start of philosophical contemplation. The answer is a simple matter of name-dot-number. Shorthand for the more than

170,000 unique online identities at OSU, name-dot-number is made up of a last name, a period and a number. Students and employees use their name-dotnumbers to send e-mails, log in to OSU’s network and verify their digital identities. Everybody at OSU has one. But how exactly is it assigned? The numbers are assigned sequentially, said Kristina Torres, a member of the communications team for the Chief Information Ofÿ cer. It is based on how many people with the same last name have been admitted to or hired by OSU. Name-dot-numbers, which are the total package of the last

name coupled with a number, are unique to one individual and assigned for life, she said. Contrary to what students might think, numbers are not reassigned or recycled, she said. It’s something that’s “with you forever.” A computer program assigns name-dot-numbers to students and employees, so there’s no way to haggle for your lucky number. “You get what you get,” she said. But there are gaps between numbers sometimes. It’s because students who are admitted to

More than 400 volunteers at Ohio State want to feed 40,000 people and raise $20,000 for charity over the next six days. The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and the Buckeye Barbeque Qlub are hosting The World’s Longest BBQ — a 168-hour barbecue between Sullivant Hall and the Wexner Center. “We’re selling burgers for a dollar each,” said Micah Kamrass, Undergraduate Student Government president-elect and former president of Alpha Epsilon Pi. “We have cheap food that tastes good, and we’re in a good location.” The event was born last fall, right after the two groups collaborated for a four-day barbecue, also for charity. “We made over $5,000 that time,” said Andrew Weiner, a second-year in accounting and vice president of Alpha Epsilon Pi. The event’s purpose is to

Steve Yao has more ratings than any of the 4,509 Ohio State instructors reviewed on But despite his near-perfect 4.9 out of 5.0 overall quality score, he was never a professor and is no longer teaching at OSU. He said he would have loved to teach dance fulltime but couldn’t get more than a month-by-month stipend teaching position. To make ends meet, he took the night shift cook job at Sloopy’s Diner in the new Ohio Union as an hourly employee who is paid bi-weekly. But university policy says that employees cannot be on both monthly and bi-weekly payment schedules. Although Yao’s jobs would not con° ict, the university would have had to treat him as a special case to let him continue teaching. According to, that’s just

what Yao is — a special teacher. “Steve might be one of the greatest professors ever … take his class, it might be the best thing you do at Ohio State,” a student said in a recent review of Yao. “He is a great teacher, funny guy, and really breaks down the dance … so you STEVE YAO learn it easily. I loved going to class … I deÿnitely recommend him,” another rater said. And those are just the comments on page two. There are 63 pages of similar reviews for Yao on the website, which covers “more than 6,000 schools, 1 million professors and 10 million opinions.” receives e-mails stating

Blake Williams stopped at a drinking fountain before class in MacQuigg Laboratory two weeks ago and was appalled by the brown muck that ÿlled his water bottle. Hustling to class with the bottle in hand, the third-year in journalism was more concerned about feeding his curiosity than satisfying his thirst, he said. For the entire two-hour class period, the water only slightly cleared. As it settled in the clear bottle, “black specs fell to the bottom,” and it remained opaque, Williams said. Although the water was odorless, Williams said he was shocked by its poor quality. This is nothing new. Discolored water ° ows out of faucets, toilets and drinking fountains at least a dozen times a year in MacQuigg, said Ken Kushner, material science engineering laboratory manager. He is also the building coordinator. The discoloration is the result of water being turned back on after repairs are

made to the pipes. The brown tint and particles are remnants of oxidized iron that builds up in the pipes when the water shuts off, he said. Although the “nasty-looking” water is not harmful, Kushner said, he does not recommend drinking it. By letting the water run for a few minutes, it will become clear again. This is a common problem with older pipes, and just one of the many issues that Kushner, who has been in MacQuigg for more than three years, faces every day. MacQuigg, Koffolt Laboratories, Fontana Laboratories and Watts Hall make up the building complex between 18th and Woodruff avenues that dates back to the early 1940s. The complex houses the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and an antiquated pipe system that requires constant repairs. But ÿxing the pipes is not meant to make the building more “desirable,” Kushner said. Plumbers and technicians from Facilities Operations and Development are trying to keep the building from falling apart, he said. Acting as a liaison between his department and Facilities Operations and Development, Kushner’s job has become reporting necessary repairs regarding

campus Design student’s video game makes healthy eating fun With graduation quickly approaching, Stephanie Owens works late in the basement of Hayes Hall surrounded by scraps of paper and eraser-less pencils. Owens, a fourth-year in industrial design, is working on her senior thesis — developing a video game that will help children eat better. The idea originated more than a year ago, but this quarter, she ÿnally had the chance to focus on it. “The inspiration is this Pokemon pedometer I had when I was really little,” Owens said. “That was exciting to me, to take care of something. I would go around and walk with it.” This isn’t the typical thesis project for students in industrial design, which generally focuses on durable goods. “Stephanie’s project represents new opportunities that her major and the ÿeld of industrial design can address as we look to the future,” said Jim Arnold, her professor this quarter, in an e-mail. Owens said she intends to design the product for a classroom setting. “I didn’t want to develop something necessarily that would help children who were obese lose weight, but rather prevent that from happening in the ÿrst place,” Owens said. The target group is kids ages 8 to 11. “That’s what I had found was the best age to intervene to get these habits to really stick,” Owens said. She has a framework for the ÿve main components she wants the game to have. First, kids will set up their character. The game will then keep track of how that character progresses, Owens said.

Children will carry a small device even when they are not playing the game to keep track of their activity. This will affect their character in the game. She said there will be a nurse’s station to provide tips to people struggling with the game, which will have levels that each teach a STEPHANIE OWENS different lesson. Owens spoke to a school nurse, Adriana Castellanos, who shared a few important lessons for kids, including learning to read nutrition facts, knowing what a serving size looks like and planning a day’s meals according to what the body needs. There will also be an area that allows kids to compete with their friends or classmates. Those who have taken better care of their character and have been more active will be more likely to win the competitions. “That’s another way to keep them interested,” Owens said. “I don’t want them to get bored.” There will also be a tutorial section to help people set up the game and get familiar with the goals and activities, she said. Owens used surveys and focus groups to gather feedback from nutritionists, doctors, parents and children. Owens will visit the Columbus Montessori Education Center twice to get feedback from the fourth and ÿfth grade classes there. The education center focuses on the teaching philosophies of Mario Montessori, an Italian physician, and accepts children starting at 6 months old up to the eighth grade. “I’m kind of scared and excited about that

because I don’t know what they’re going to say,” Owens said. Owens had hoped to submit the project to the Apps for Healthy Kids competition, part of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” Campaign, but it won’t be completed in time. The competition awards those who create fun and engaging software and games that encourage children to make more nutritious food choices and be more physically active, according to the program’s website. “I’m still keeping the healthy apps as part of the project because that was such a huge inspiration,” Owens said. “I think it also kind of validates that there’s a need for something like this.” The campaign aims to lower childhood obesity in the U.S. from 20 percent in 2010 to 5 percent by 2030, according to The Washington Post. Owens’ project will not be functional by its due date in three weeks, but that wasn’t a requirement for the thesis. She will have a video loop of what the game would look like and a model of the device. “Basically … I’m missing the programming skills,” she said. “It’s going to look like someone programmed it, but you couldn’t actually go click on it and play it.” Despite the lack of programming skills, Arnold said he is impressed with Owens’ creativity. “Her interest in animation and character design are coming into play here, and I believe she will propose a truly useful, compelling, innovative design,” he said. Owens has also remained positive despite the short timeline. “Turning it into reality would be great, since that was my initial project goal,” she said. “I knew there was a good chance I would not ÿnd someone in so short a time, but it’s OK. Doing all the work myself means I do not have to rely on someone else for results.”

Owens, the oldest of her four siblings, said she has always had an interest in working with children. “I guess the idea was doing a toy that gets kids active because I’m really interested in toy design,” she said. “I’ve always had a personal interest in animation and video games, too.” Her many interests are making her post-graduation outlook murky. “I would love to work in 3-D animation, also probably freelance illustration, like children’s books,” she said. “Long-term, I’m thinking about coming back to school for animation.” The senior thesis projects will be on display at the OSU Urban Arts Space downtown from June 8 to 11. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Admission will be free.

OSU’s Cartoon Library and Museum launches online database for easy access BRICE YOST Lantern reporter About 70,000 cartoons and items related to them are now available online from Ohio State’s collection. OSU’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum has opened a new database to make it easier to access a portion of one of the world’s largest collections, said Lucy Caswell, museum curator and professor. “Even though we have between 60,000 and 70,000 records in this database, it really is the tip of the iceberg,” Caswell said. More than 400,000 original cartoons exist in the collection. The collections are worth millions of dollars, Caswell said. “In some ways they are

priceless,” she added, because the art is original and could never be replaced. The library and museum already had a database. “We had a homegrown database for probably 15 years,” Caswell said. “It had a number of quirks.” The new database is meant to manage all the original art. Its software, PastPerfect, allows the library to manage acquisition and donor information and to embed an image of a piece, she said. The museum and library’s name comes from local cartoonist Billy Ireland, who was known for editorial cartoons and worked for The Columbus Dispatch for 37 years. Ireland’s family donated $7 million through the Elizabeth Ireland Graves Foundation to help renovate Sullivant Hall. The museum was named in July 2009

Local bands to perform on weekend raise money for three charities: Chai Lifeline, The Mid-Ohio Foodbank and Faith on 8th. “This is personal for some of us because we’ve met the people helped by Chai Lifeline,” Kamrass said. At a summer camp last year, Kamrass met a man who had a severe brain tumor. Chai Lifeline provided a way for him to go bungee jumping and ° y in a private airplane. “I think about those people every second I’m out here,” said Kamrass, a third-year in political science and economics. Though Monday was rainy, the organizers said a surprising number of students stopped by to support the barbecue.


in recognition of the gift, Caswell said. In 1977, OSU’s Cartoon Library and Museum was established and placed in the Journalism Building after receiving the Milton Caniff collection. Two rooms in the Journalism Building were used to house the Milton Caniff Reading Room, the original name of the museum. OSU alumnus Milton Caniff, a cartoonist, was known for creating “Terry and the Pirates” and “Steve Canyon.” Caniff started “Terry and the Pirates,” an adventure cartoon strip, in 1934 and left in 1946 to start “Steve Canyon,” another adventure cartoon strip, which he wrote from 1947 to 1988. “His collection was the seed from which the library grew,” Caswell said. Then in 1989, the Wexner Center opened and the library and museum moved there.

The cartoon library has expanded since then. The entire collection is stored on site and includes 2.5 million comic strips. OSU’s Library Book Depository on Kenny Road is used to store part of the published books collections. About 3,000 square feet of additional storage is on Ackerman Road, in the building where

library materials were before the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library reopened, she said. The collection includes editorial cartoons, comic strips, comic books, graphic novels, sports cartoons and magazine cartoons. The library and museum are part of the OSU University Libraries and are now exhibiting

“What’s New? A Sampler of Recent Acquisitions.” The exhibit is wide-ranging and showcases cartoons, such as a James Gillray engraving from 1806 and an editorial cartoon by 2005 Pulitzer Prizewinner Nick Anderson. The exhibit opened April 26 and ends Aug. 20.

“Even in the rain, we’re feeding about 100 people an hour,” said Kris Weissman, the captain of the BBQ’s Grill Team. “Given this location, we could easily feed 30,000 to 40,000 this week.” And the menu is pretty broad for a barbecue. “We’re doing tacos tonight, pulled pork tomorrow and even pizza on Friday,” said Jon Fish, a secondyear in international business and economics and president of Alpha Epsilon Pi. The barbecue will be open for business 24 hours a day until Monday afternoon. Food is $2 per plate. Local bands will perform at the barbecue Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 4:30 p.m. to midnight. But even without music, the barbecue is appealing to guests. “Cheap food, 24 hours a day? You can’t get better than that,” said Stosh Antolak, a third-year in electrical engineering. “I’ll probably eat breakfast here tomorrow morning.”

Gaps in numbers result when admitted students don’t enroll OSU are given numbers, regardless of whether they enroll, Torres said. Those in charge of managing the name-dotnumber system are part of a group called Identity and Access Management. It might sound like one step away from Big Brother, but Torres said it’s not as ominous as it sounds. Identity Management, or IdM, is tasked with ÿnding secure ways to store all the bits of information that make up a person’s digital identity, and organizing it by name-dot-number. Verifying an online identity is especially important when access to all kinds of information can be granted to anybody sitting in front of a computer screen, Torres said. The process is called “authenticating” or “proving you are who you say you are,” she said. But aside from all the technical details, namedot-numbers are part of a real-life OSU identity. Obscure and uncommon last names might be rewarded with low numbers or even a coveted “dot one” — desired if only because it seems it would be easier to remember. Numbers for common last names such as Smith and Brown, though, climb into the high thousands. Geoff Smith is the head of OSU’s Rare Books and Manuscripts Collection at Thompson Library. And he is a rarity himself, being somewhat of a prototype for the most common last name at OSU. He is Smith.1. “It didn’t mean anything to me at the time,” he said, when the number was assigned back in the 1990s. Now, people are often impressed by it. “It means you’re old,” he said he tells numberstruck inquirers. He said he thinks he was given the ÿrst spot because the Ofÿce of Information Technology is afÿliated with the library, and when the ofÿce was handing out the ÿrst name-dot-numbers, it started there. “If I had been in English or engineering, I probably would have been 112,” he said. “Smith.112, not 112 years old,” he said laughing. He has been at OSU since 1983. Still, he doesn’t romanticize the distinction of being the ÿrst Smith. “I wish that it had the in° uence people think it does,” he said. One of Identity Management’s main duties is to piece together the various systems that make up OSU’s online world, like an interstate, Torres said. When students enroll for classes on BuckeyeLink, for example, they ÿrst must verify their identity using their name-dot-number and password. It is Identity Management’s job to act as the guard at the castle gate, granting pass-through rights only to those who have sufÿciently authenticated their identities. The job of verifying will be made easier next year, Torres said, when Identity Management completes a project it has been working on for the past year: the Identity Vault.

Dance instructors not hired full-time by OSU

that instructor ratings are uncannily accurate, especially for schools with more than 1,000 ratings. Yao has almost one third of that by himself and has 73 more ratings than OSU’s next most-rated professor. Yao’s 312 ratings average out to a 4.9 overall quality score on a 5.0 point scale. The second-most rated OSU instructor with that score has just 77 total ratings. Yao’s students gave him a collective rating of 4.9 for helpfulness, 4.9 for clarity and 4.3 for easiness. Yao is also considered a “hot” instructor, noted by the red pepper next to his name on the site. But the university’s payment plan policy pays no heed to — or to Yao’s nine years of teaching. There are no full-time dance instructors at OSU, Yao said. And with no possibility of tenure, he applied at Sloopy’s Diner and was hired with full-time beneÿts in February. When he learned later that OSU would not consolidate his payments

The vault, which Torres said is not as “glamorous” as the name suggests, is a central repository for identify information. Teams have completed various parts of it, from the actual infrastructure of the server to code-writing. It’s expected to be ÿnished next year, she said. One beneÿt is that it increases efÿciency as data are updated or changed. For example, when people change their names, the vault recognizes the connections between the identities and links them together, making the data stored there more organized and easier to retrieve. But what happens to an old name-dot-number after changing names? Alissa MacAdam, a fourth-year in human nutrition, knows the answer. She recently updated her name after getting married. She went from being the 421st Sullivan to the 12th MacAdam. She doesn’t know why, she said, but she also received a third name-dot-number consisting of a hyphenated combination of both last names, too. And all three of them are still active. But her original one is still the ÿrst thing that pops into her head, she said. Even digital married names take some getting used to. It’s also caused a bit of a split personality for MacAdam. She uses one of her three name-dotnumbers to check her e-mail and another to check Carmen, the online course management system, she said. “I never use the hyphenated one,” she said. “It’s too long.” Kim Carter, a 2009 graduate of OSU’s veterinary school, had only one-name-dot number while she was a student here, but one was enough. Her number was 666. The so-called Satanic “number of the beast” from the Bible’s Book of Revelation is about as unlucky as 13 on steroids to the superstitious. It might be humorous to many, but for Carter, it was truly unfortunate. She was the president of the Christian Veterinary Fellowship. “I immediately wanted to change it,” she said on the phone from Canton, Ohio, where she is now a veterinarian. But she never got around to ÿlling out the paperwork. And it was certainly easy to remember. She said some were wary of e-mailing her, and she was used to getting funny looks from people unfamiliar with the system, who thought she had chosen the number for herself. Getting a new e-mail was one of the ÿrst things she did after graduating, she said. She probably decided she was better off with a nondescript Gmail account. After all, who wants a Satanic veterinarian? But her OSU identity did have its advantages. “It was deÿnitely a conversation-starter,” Carter said. Although it might seem impersonal to be identiÿed by a number, with vast stores of data being updated in real-time every day, Torres said it would be difÿcult to identify students, faculty and staff without a system like name-dot-number. As technology evolves, interactions with the system might become more sophisticated — more personal — but a number will likely always be a part of the equation, Torres said. That might just be a sign of the times.

water, heating and air, drainage and accessibility throughout the building, he said. “It gets really frustrating,” Kushner said with a sigh. “It affects people’s health as well as their work.” Ranking in the top 20 departments nationwide, the Material Science Engineering program at Ohio State has a hard time dealing with the conditions in its out-dated building, Kushner said. Students and professors have trouble conducting research and doing labs in an environment where one room is more than 90 degrees and the next is less than 50, he said. “An infrastructure that is at least 40 years old is not what the department deserves,” Kushner said. He takes pride in the department he has worked in for 18 years.

But Kushner knows he is not the only one in need “of a new home,” he said. The university has been conducting research with a team of architects and engineers to assess the buildings on campus and decide which ones are in good condition, which ones need renovations and which ones should be torn down, he said. The Sasaki project, which involves various campus and state departments, has been going on for more than a year. When the assessment is ÿnished in the coming months, Kushner, as well as hundreds of other building coordinators, will know their buildings’ fate. When the project ends, a “priority list” will come out, determining which buildings will be ÿxed ÿrst, Kushner said. Until then, Kushner, Williams and others who are in and out of MacQuigg each day will continue to wait. “We appreciate the small projects as they come,” he said. “Our department just doesn’t have the money to pay for renovations on its own.”

to one schedule and pay him overtime for his teaching, Yao was forced to make a major life decision. He could continue teaching foxtrots and waltzes to students or start cooking sausage sliders and home fries for them. Because of the lack of job security with the quarter-to-quarter teaching position and because “the pay was terrible,” Yao took the cooking job. “The whole process really sucked,” he said. “In nine years, I’ve made so many friends and seen so many people develop.” In the eighth week of Winter Quarter, Yao was told he had to stop teaching. He offered to ÿnish the quarter without pay so his students could have the same instructor from start to ÿnish. “I was tearing up in class thinking I was facing my students for the last time,” he said. “It was gut-wrenching.” Yao received e-mails from his soon-to-be-former students. Many of them were students expecting to be taught by Yao again for a higher level class Spring Quarter. “I loved seeing the progression of each student from week one to week 10, and in further quarters,” Yao said. “Each class becomes close, and many of my former students came back to visit me and dance with my classes.” The university allowed him to complete Winter quarter with his students. But as of this quarter, Yao’s social dance classes are taught by one of his former students, Tami Thompson. Yao is also a former OSU student. From 1994 to 1999 he studied sport and leisure studies. But he never danced before college. He played soccer and tennis at Cincinnati’s North College Hill High School and was “against dance,” he said. Yao’s life changed when he begrudgingly took Social Dance 101 in his second year of college, which led him to take the second-level class. Those were the only dance classes he ever enrolled in. “I liked it and I got hooked,” he said. “After that, I started going to 12 hours a week of my friends’ dance classes I wasn’t even getting credit for.”

With two new elevators being installed, one in Watts and one in MacQuigg, Kushner said he hopes the issues do not worsen. But with no major injuries or health concerns in the building so far, he feels lucky, even with the constant setbacks he faces, he said. “The problems get worse and worse each year,” he said, “but any day that we don’t have any accidents continues to be a good thing.”

After graduating in 1999, Yao continued to attend OSU dance classes for fun, and one was taught by a friend of his. One day in 2001, that friend had a con° ict and couldn’t teach. The Department of Dance’s only requirement of its instructors is that they are college graduates, Yao said. So he ÿlled in for his friend and discovered his passion in life. He taught Social Dance 101 as well as the 102 and 103 classes, which focus more on performance. Yao has himself been a dance performer. He entered ballroom dance competitions in 1999, 2001 and 2007, and once competed at the Ohio Star Ball downtown. He also formed Dance Till You Drop, an OSU student organization, where he met one of his ballroom dance partners. And in 1999, he joined another dance performance club called the 4th Street Alleycats. Despite his passion for dance, Yao now works from 11 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. ÿve days a week at Sloopy’s Diner. He has also been everything from a dishwasher to an hors d’oeuvres chef at the NorthPointe Conference Center and Hotel and at Figlio in Grandview, where he still works occasionally. But baking, braising, broiling, boiling and blending are no substitutes for boogies, ballets, bops, ballrooms and breakdancing. So Yao ÿnds ways to get his dance-teaching ÿx on the side. Former students of his have asked him to teach dances to entire dormitory ° oors. Students in Baker, Patterson, Stradley, Park and Smith halls learned the swing, salsa and tango from Yao. He has also taught more than 200 international students from International Friendships Inc., and he has taught ballroom dancing to adults as part of an Active Aging program at the RPAC. Yao even teaches his friends how to dance for their weddings. So when the time came for his wedding on March 13, the pressure was on. “They said it had to be special,” Yao said. “So my wife and I did four dips and a lift.” As a full-time employee, Yao gets to take 10 free credit hours of courses at OSU. He’s considering enrolling in social dance.

A floor-to-ceiling screen projected Michael Jackson music videos that illuminated the dance hall. The disc jockey interrupted his spinning to throw on “Thriller,” and dancers lined up to show off their monster moves. The annual Other Prom, a dance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth ages 12 to 20, was held for the first time at the Wexner Center on Saturday. The performance space was filled with laughter as the teenagers performed the famous zombie dance. Mardi Gras masks, beads and glow sticks adorned the GLBT youth for this year’s Mask-gayrade theme. Girls in tuxedos and boys in heels danced with their friends. “I had a blast. It was fun being with the person I wanted to be with. That made it even better,” said Ariel Hammie, who sported a little black dress. Kaleidoscope Youth Center, located across the street from the Wexner Center, has organized the annual Other Prom for 16 years. Kaleidoscope is the only GLBT organization in Ohio that focuses solely on youth, said Jennifer Gilbride-Brown, the executive director for Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope is a nonprofit organization that has two full-time members that work with volunteers to coordinate activities for GLBT youth. The center is open to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and offers a space for the youth to make friends, gain support and engage in activities in a comfortable environment, said Renee Auckerman, a volunteer who helped found Kaleidoscope in 1994. Jean Pitman, the Wexner Center’s educator for youth events, said she has been a volunteer at Kaleidoscope for more than a year. She heard about the youth center during her first week at OSU and has been working with them ever since. “(Kaleidoscope Youth Center) is one of the most diverse atmospheres in Columbus,” Pitman said while observing the energy of the dance floor. Pitman said the youth center is filled with teenagers that come from various ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. She contacted

‘other prom’ attendees occupy the dance fl oor on saturday at the Wexner Center. Kaleidoscope to host Other Prom as she yearns to bring a variety of the non-OSU community into the Wexner Center. The mission behind Other Prom is to provide a safe space where confident or questioning youth can “be teenagers and socialize” without the pressures of feeling scrutinized or unaccepted for their sexuality, said Glenn Zermeno, who works full-time alongside Gilbride-Brown for Kaleidoscope. Zermeno said the GLBT group makes up 25 to 40 percent of the homeless youth in the nation. Volunteers only discuss issues such as this when the youth come to them for help, advice and comfort. Gilbride-Brown, Pitman, Zermeno and the volunteers worked together to provide food, drinks, lights, music and a photographer for the dance. Behind the refreshment table stood Jed Hudson, a 35-year-old volunteer. He helped pass out non-alcoholic drinks to the youth.

“I came out and wanted to volunteer with gay youth. I searched around on the internet and then filled out an application online for Kaleidoscope,” Hudson said. At 10 p.m., the youth were invited to participate in a dance-off. Applause from the audience determined the two lucky winners, who were both girls. “I have a lot of support and a lot of friends. Without them I wouldn’t have been able to do it,” Monique Harrison said after she was crowned queen. Tanicqua Hamilton, an 18-year-old extroverted lesbian, was crowned king after dancing in her slacks, vest and tie. She said she is not shy about her sexuality and earlier that evening eagerly stepped away from dancing to be photographed. Gilbride-Brown said this type of pride is what Kaleidoscope encouraged from its youth by hosting the Other Prom.

Ekoostik Hookah hosts annual festival RaaD sHUBaIl y Lantern reporter

summer 2010

In the past decade, the music industry has seen a lot of change. ITunes began a new era for music collectors, Lil Wayne went to jail and pretty much every band signs on to play music festivals. Whether it’s in the Tennessee sun or a Chicago park, there’s a festival for any genre. Holding it down in Ohio, jam band Ekoostik Hookah has groomed what used to be a party in the woods into a bi-annual music festival. This year marks the 33rd Hookahville, taking place from May 28 to 31. The headlining bands are Gov’t Mule, Michael Franti & Spearhead and of course, Ekoostik Hookah. It’s the only time this year Franti or Gov’t Mule will be in Ohio. Dave Weissman, Hookahville’s media director, said the festival hopes to attract a more diverse audience with this year’s lineup. “It’s constantly a challenge to educate the marketplace with what’s going on,” he said. The festival’s first appearance was in 1994 on Ekoostik Hookah keyboardist/vocalist Dave Katz’s wooded property. The plan was to play out in the

woods on Memorial Day weekend, he said. The show was well received with about 800 people in attendance, so the band decided to do it again on Labor Day weekend. Sixteen years later the tradition continues, as Hookahville is held on those two weekends every fall and spring. In the past, there have been a few changes in location for the festival. This year it will be held at Legend Valley, a concert venue and campground in Thornville, Ohio. The stay at Legend Valley began in spring of 2006, continuing until 2009 when there were problems that didn’t allow Hookahville to take place on the property. “There were some unfortunate lawsuits going on that prevented it

Gov’t mule will be one of the headliners at this year’s Hookahville Festival. from happening last year,” Weissman said. “For the foreseeable future it’s going to be at Legend Valley, and there are no plans to change that.” Compared to other modern festivals, there are a few major differences, aside from being in Ohio. The price is cheaper than other festivals, especially super-festivals, which cost a couple hundred dollars a ticket and take place far away from Ohio.

“One thing we’ve always tried to do at Hookahville is keep the ticket price low. Even today it’s $75,” Katz said. It’s also slightly older than some of the recent music festival titans. “Hookahville was around 8 years before Bonnaroo,” Weissman said. He explained that he doesn’t think Ekoostik Hookah fans would go to more mainstream festivals in place of Hookahville.

‘Absolutely Absurd’ auction lives up to title via curious costumes and characters JaCoB BRoWnInG Lantern reporter I was walking following four gentlemen. One man wore a tan-colored suit while another wore a blue checkered shirt tucked into his khaki pants. These men were dressed nicely, but there was one detail that stood out. Around their necks were plastic leis and on their heads were cheap tiaras. They ended up at the same location as me: 122 East Main St., the Ohio Art League. On Saturday night, the League had a silent auction titled “One Night: Absolutely Absurd.” Attendees were invited to support the arts while wearing a combination of odd clothing. At 8 p.m. the doors opened, and I stepped in. There was art on the walls for the attendees to look at. There was also a piece of paper by each artwork for people to write down their bids. But I was interested in a different form of art. A woman passed by my left, swaying in a blue

sequined belly-dancer dress. On my right was an older gentleman twirling a black Renaissanceinspired cape. In the far corner of the room I just entered was a gaggle of women wearing Venetian masks, squawking as they laughed together. I was a bit nervous. For being someone who wouldn’t deserve a second glance on the street, I was the odd man out now. The techno music filled every room and people were either mingling around the artwork on the walls or socially drinking at the bar. Balloons filled the negative space, floating toward the ceiling or rolling on the floor. The first floor was a nice introduction to the exhibit, but there was more to see. Second fl oor. “I feel I outplayed the absurdity a bit,” a man said. His name is Clyde Synger. He was wearing a green leotard, a black top hat, and had tinsel draped all over himself. He was talking to a man with a crude Superman outfit who was serving ice cream at the end of the dining area.

“No one is more absurd than me,” Synger said as he left the dining area. By the stairs on the second floor was a couple wearing a uniformed costume. Adam Brouillett and Emily Herbeck were wrapped and constrained by a black-and-white fur rug. “I had to call her boyfriend and ask if it was OK,” Brouillett said when talking about Herbeck and their costume. We talked for a bit before they moved on toward the stairs. I asked them if they would be able to handle their trip. “We’ve always been really coordinated,” Brouillett said. “Ever since we were born in this costume.” I moved on and kept observing until I was stopped. I had been there an hour before it finally happened. I was stopped by Cheryl Henderson, an enthusiastic cross between a ballerina and ninja. “Here’s a young guy, at a place celebrating art and life, and he’s being a stick in the mud,” Henderson said. She referred to me being one of the few not dressed up for the night. She then took my hand and led me to the stairs.

Henderson quickly led me toward a stage where a karaoke event was being set up. Beside the stage was a coat rack full of costumes and a tub full of accessories. “You thought you were going to get away with it didn’t you?” Henderson said. I had never met this woman before, but I knew what she had planned. She went straight for the tub, throwing cowboy hats aside, considering a robot mask before discarding it, and then finally found the one item for me. “There you go,” she said as she secured a fake beard on my face, which was odd because I already had a beard, my real beard. “Now you have a double beard.” Henderson left after that. Perhaps unaware of the true gift she gave me. It wasn’t the cheap Halloween beard straddling my own beard and making my face hot and itchy. It was a relief from the nervousness.


arts&life ‘Mighty Boosh’ finds fan base in the States and at Ohio State Urban Arts Space Dallas sampsel Lantern reporter Laughter rang through the Ohio State Urban Arts Space Thursday during a viewing party for the British comedy “The Mighty Boosh.” “It’s a show I really liked,” said Rachael Smith, the organizer of the event. “I was hoping other people would like it who probably do not get a chance to see it.” “The Mighty Boosh” refers to a British Broadcasting Channel show that recently came to Adult Swim in the U.S. The stars, Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, have worked on the concept since the late 1990s. The show title also refers to the comedy troupe responsible for the show. In 1998, while working with Paramount Comedy, they developed the characters of Vince Noir and

Howard Moon. These would become the central characters of the show. Barratt plays Moon and Fielding plays Noir. Dave Brown, Rich Fulcher and Michael Fielding became part of the troupe soon after. That year, The Boosh would put on their first stage show, also titled “The Mighty Boosh.” Two more shows would follow in the next two years, “Arctic Boosh” and “Auto Boosh.” In 2001, the Boosh was broadcast on BBC London Live, later transferring to BBC Radio 4. This radio show would earn them a half-hour television pilot. The television show began in 2004, running for eight episodes. The series focused on Moon and Noir in their roles as zoo keepers. A year later, the Boosh returned with a second series of episodes. This one moved from the “Zooinverse” to an apartment in Dalston, London. Naboo and Bollo became larger characters.

In 2006 they would take the show live before returning to television in 2007. This series revolved around Moon and Noir working for Naboo and Bollo in a second-hand store. The first episode was so successful, drawing approximately one million viewers, that the BBC Three broadcast an entire night of “The Mighty Boosh.” Commitments through 2009 have kept the duo from beginning a potential fourth series. The show came to America twice. The first time, BBC America broadcast the first series but ceased. In 2009, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block began airing the third series and continues to make episodes available on its website. The show is notable for its visual style and surreal qualities. Backgrounds are often green-screened, and the images in the backgrounds are distorted. Changes to color and point of view often create backgrounds

that contrast with the real-life people, most often during a chase. Continuity is also ignored. Each series starts in a new setting, without explanation. A new, unexplained setting is not the only way discontinuity in the show. At the end of episode 103, Bollo dies only to be fine at the beginning of episode 104. None of the characters offers an explanation or behaves as though Bollo was dead. Moon and Noir are the most normal characters. Naboo is a Shaman and Bollo is a talking gorilla. The antagonists range from a demonic elderly woman to a talking “Crack Fox.” “I like the surreality of everything,” Steven Grim said, listing Bollo, the unexplained setting shifts and other things among those surreal components. “It is good to just zone out to and be weird,” Smith said.

Lady Gaga coming to the Schott in 2011 Ryan Book Arts Editor Live Nation announced Monday that pop star Lady Gaga will begin a second leg of her “The Monster Ball” tour in February 2011 in Atlantic City, NJ. Among her stops will be a show at the Schottenstein Center on March 10. Gaga has already sold out a majority of the shows on the 2010 leg of her American tour, performed at the Coachella Music Festival in April and will serve as one of the headliners for the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago in August. Tickets for her show at the Schottenstein Center will go on sale Friday, starting at $52.50. Gaga first rose to prominence in 2008 after the release of her debut album, “The Fame.” She continued to gain attention because of her wildly avantgarde red-carpet dresses as well as her equally unique stage costumes. In 2009, she released her second album “The Fame Monster,” which brought with it a slew of No. 1 singles. Gaga has most recently gathered attention for her epic music videos. Rather than limit the length of the video to the length of the song, Gaga pushed the videos for her singles “Paparazzi,” “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” toward 10 minutes with considerable budgets and extended storylines of their own. “Telephone” featured fellow pop juggernaut Beyonce Knowles, and “Bad Romance” became the most-watched video in YouTube history. Reviews from previous shows have praised Gaga for incorporating the styles and feel of her videos into her live performances. The opening act will be Semi Precious Weapons, an alternative rock band from New York City, also noted for its fashionable approach to its respective genre. The only issue the Schottenstein Center faces is that, because of seating concerns, audience members will find it difficult to “just dance.”

Some might say that athletic talent is a quality people are born with. They might even say it runs in the family. In the world of sports today, brothers such as Eli and Peyton Manning both excel as NFL quarterbacks. Multiple siblings also represent Ohio State athletics, such as the Homan brothers in football and the Hill siblings in basketball. For the Chekwa family, athletic excellence is practically an expectation. Senior cornerback Chimdi Chekwa is the youngest of six children, all of whom have excelled at sports on the high school or collegiate level. Before the talented children came talented parents. Chimdi’s father, Charles, played professional soccer on Nigeria’s national team. His mother, Eunice, was also an athlete, running track during her younger years. Charles said sports were just as popular for his family growing up in Nigeria. “All of my brothers and sisters were involved in athletics too,” Charles said. “My older brothers played softball and ran track, and my younger sisters did, too. When we grew up, it was just natural for you to get involved.” Chimdi is preceded by three older brothers: Uche, the oldest; Chima, the second-oldest; and Ike, the third-oldest. “For me, it was my older brothers and sisters who inspired me to do sports,”

Chimdi said. “I just watched them and they loved sports, so I loved sports. When you have the brothers, you basically do what they do.” Being the oldest brother, Uche paved the way for the rest of the family. “My oldest brother ran track and played a little football,” Chimdi said. “His sport was track. He ran it in high school — he won state in the 400 meters. Then he ended up getting a scholarship for Virginia Military Institute.” From there, the stage was set. Because he was plagued by injury, Chima Chekwa did not play sports at the collegiate level, but the second-oldest brother still starred as a three-sport athlete in track, football and basketball during his high school years. More recently, Chima has made his debut not in athletics, but on the big screen in various ÿlms. Ike, the third Chekwa son, started playing football partway through high school, but it was not an easy road. “With my parents coming from another country, they didn’t know about football too much. My mom didn’t really want my older brother to play football at ÿrst,” Chimdi said. “It took a lot of begging and begging until they were allowed to play football, so they each got started really late.” Ike went on to junior college before transferring to Texas State to play football. After his college career, he also spent several years playing in the Arena Football League in Corpus Christi. Chimdi has two older sisters, who each played a different sport at the collegiate

Ohio State basketball player and blogger Mark Titus threw out the first pitch at Monday’s Columbus Clippers game on what was deemed ‘Club Tril Night’ at Huntington Park.

Buckeyes to host NCAA Regional EVELYN CURRY Lantern reporter The No. 19 Ohio State softball team will welcome California, Bucknell and Kentucky to Buckeye Field this weekend when it hosts one of the 16 NCAA regional tournaments. The Buckeyes will open up the double-elimination regional against the Kentucky Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Bucknell will play No. 11 California at 5 p.m. Last season, the Buckeyes defeated the Wildcats, 7-2, in the Columbus Regional, earning them a trip to the Super Regional for the ÿrst time in program history. “We have to do some homework on all three teams,” coach Linda Kalafatis said in a press release. “I have been on a rankings committee this season so I have seen a lot of what Cal and Kentucky have done this season, so I know they will be very competitive.” This is the seventh-overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament for the Buckeyes. The winner of the Columbus Regional will face the winner of the Athens Regional next weekend, May 28 and 29.

“It was challenging,” Charles said. “We divided up the assignments, but if we had to miss a particular child’s game we would have to miss someone else’s so no one would feel bad in the end.” Chimdi might have the busiest schedule of them all, as he has run track for three of his four years at OSU in addition to playing football. He has experienced success in both, winning the 4x100-meter race in the Big Ten Championships for track and recording Big Ten titles in football as well. “At the stage I am now, I’m not really a role model, but something they can all be proud of,” Chimdi said. “A lot of my brothers were really good at sports, but they didn’t get the opportunity that I had.” Rooted in strong Christian values, Charles Chekwa always told his family to “put God ÿrst, and everything else would fall in line.” While watching the Heisman trophy presentation in high school, Chimdi’s mother also had some words of wisdom for him, as she told her son that one day he too would win that trophy. “I told her I don’t even play a position that will win the Heisman,” Chimdi said. “But they want me to be that motivated person, and I take what she has to say seriously.” The Chekwas hold high standards for their youngest son as he heads into his ÿnal year as both a student and athlete. “We expect him to have an outstanding year this year. We believe he should perform to the best he possibly can, just leave it all out on the ÿeld,” Charles said. “He’s a very good boy. It can be a very big challenge to balance academics and athletics, but he does it well, and we are so proud of him.”

level. Blessing, the oldest sister, played college basketball at Mississippi State, and the youngest sister, Nonye, plays volleyball for Warner State in Florida. Each member of the family was brought up with lofty athletic expectations. “The one thing was, if you didn’t do well in your sport, you didn’t really want to keep doing it,” Chimdi said. “If I played basketball and I didn’t think I was good at it, I wouldn’t play it. After your game you’d come home and everybody would tell you that you need to do this, you need to do that. Everybody expects you to be good, because they were good.” In the Chekwa household, the competition isn’t necessary ugly nor friendly, just something everyone has in common. “It’s not ÿerce (competition), we just understand each other,” Chimdi said. “We understand that if we don’t do good, it is going to be criticized. If you ran a 10.6-second 100-meter, then they ran a 10.3-second 100-meter.” The Chekwa family is currently scattered in various states across the country, from Florida to Louisiana on up to Ohio. Because of their busy work or school schedules, the siblings can’t support each other as much as they might like. “It’s difÿcult. We basically just talk to each other on the phone,” Chimdi said. “At this point, they’re just coming out of school and working and they don’t get the opportunity to get to many of my games.” For the parents, attendance at sporting events had to be divided while the kids grew up, so everyone had someone there supporting them.

leads Big Ten in batting average, hits me an offer and weren’t going to make me an offer that was willing to, in my opinion, sacriÿce your senior year and your last year at Ohio State,” Hurley said. “It just wasn’t worth it to go play at that point.” The left-handed leadoff man has made the most of his return. Hurley is third in the Big Ten in both batting average (.392) and hits (80). He is also sixth in the league in on-base percentage. Though he is doing well individually, individual statistics were not the motivation for Hurley’s return. “I don’t have any regrets at all,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons I came back. We have such a close knit group of guys and we all get along.” Though a close group, the team has struggled to replicate last year’s success. The Buckeyes took home the conference title in Hurley’s junior season, but this season’s team is currently in a tie for ÿfth at 10-11 and is in danger of missing the conference tournament. “Regardless of the record, this has been the most fun year of baseball I’ve had in my career,” Hurley said. “It’s awesome to be a part of it and I’ll walk away from this with memories that no one will be able to take away from me.” Though he is happy with his decision, Hurley said he hopes to be selected in the draft again this year. “After last year’s draft you just never know what’s going to happen,” he said. “I don’t have any expectations, any rounds or anything like that at all. I’m just hoping that someone out there thinks I can play for an organization and gives me an opportunity.”
