B l a s t f r o m t h e pa s t Welcome back to the â€œblast from the past,â€? a feature showcasing articles from our archives. This fourth piece, from March 9, 1979, showcases the artwork of an incredibly talented Eckerd alum. The rest, as they say, is history!
How talented can an EC graduate be? Very! Former â€œEckâ€? Greg Lawson, who graduated with the class of â€˜78, has done some excellent work in portraying the typical Eckerd student doing some typical and not so typical things. Lawson invented the â€œEckâ€? and even though he has secured a copyright for the unusual creature, many EC departments have used it quite freely. Thimblerig is more than happy to present you with some of Lawsonâ€™s latest creations. By the way, if you see yourself in one of these examples of life on campus, donâ€™t be disgruntled; itâ€™s like being on Candid Camera.

As a lifelong vegetarian, Thanksgiving has never meant much to me. Instead of a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, Iâ€™ve traditionally spent the afternoon preparing a large plate of nachos with all the necessary dips and toppings. Aside from sophomore year, I havenâ€™t gone home for the holiday either. But not until today did I realize that, while I wonâ€™t be at home with my family for Thanksgiving, something else will be: The Current, and therefore, this column. And, without fail, I guarantee this column will be passed around the dinner table for the entire Martinez/Dâ€™Onofrio family to read. Interestingly enough, I have no idea to what extent my family knows Iâ€™m gay, soâ€Śhey, guys. Hope dinner is going well.

claw does catch a lobster, it slides it down the chute and the owner of the machine will prepare it for you on the spot or give you a coupon for later redemption. This lobster is living its entire life only to be put into a small tank, be chased with a claw, passed down a chute, put in a boiling pot and be consumed. What has entertainment come to? According to the lobster zone website, the claw machine doesnâ€™t apply enough pressure to physically hurt the lobster and the animal is carefully whisked down the chute and placed close to the bottom so it has a â€œsafe landing.â€? Regardless of whether or not the lobster feels pain, youâ€™re playing with your food before you eat it. Itâ€™s like chasing a chicken around the coop, then giving it a few solid kicks before killing it for dinner. According to Lobster Zone Inc.â€™s ZHEVLWH RQO\ WZR RXW RI

According to Lobster Zoneâ€™s website, 85 percent of online bloggers tend to favor the game and would like to play it, but he didnâ€™t specify what information was included in the poll. My issue is not so much that the game itself is the cruelest contraption I have seen but that these lobsters live their lives for pure entertainment to the human race.

Itâ€™s comical that the loudest supporters of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act are the same people who demand that the federal government get out of their hair. If there is anything that proves mainstream Republicans are not for small government, itâ€™s this. If itâ€™s not the governmentâ€™s place to require healthcare, impose taxation or ensure environmental regulations, then why is it acceptable for the government to intervene in the bedroom and tell you what marriage is? If you support statesâ€™ rights, then the issue is equally relevant. According to Sec. 1 Article 4 of the Constitution, â€œFull Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State.â€?

something so irrefutably contradictive. This symbol, along with many others has been taken out of its original standing and has been turned into a popularity contest. And to tell the truth, it is pretty obnoxious for those who see the peace sign for what it truly is and work very hard to make peace to see people blatantly disregarding the meaning behind the symbol. Donâ€™t get me wrong, there are still a large handful who rock the peace sign, that truly push for peace and could probably tell you what it stands for originally, but the whole assortment of people who choose to adorn themselves with it for the wrong reasons today give a bad name to the people who want to wear it for the right reasons. So we should do all the people who use it in the right mindset a favor and either conform to ways of peace, or we should put our peace signs down and let the loving vibes take a hold before we choose to wear them.

Skyrim proves incredible RPG for loyal fans and newbies alike ÄžÄ‘ÄŠÄˆÄŠÄŠÄ‘ÄŠÄ— !"#$%&'($&#)*+%&$,% My journey through Skyrim begins at midnight November 10, waiting patiently in line for a game Iâ€™ve been anticipating for years. I was there early, so I was in my car and headed home barely ten minutes after the release began. 7KHÂżUVWWKLQJWKDWVWUXFNPHDV,LQVWDOOHG Skyrim was that it required an Internet connection and Steam account to install. I personally detest being required to have an Internet cRQQHFWLRQ WR SOD\ D SXUHO\ VLQJOHÄĽ player game. I had hoped that since Oblivion had not required Internet, Bethesda would not alter their policy on the issue, but it was in vain. That said, the game installed in an extraordinarily fast twenty minutes. For anyone unfamiliar with The Elder Scrolls franchise of games, fear not. Bethesda, the gameâ€™s developing company, has made a habit with The Elder Scrolls to make each new game accessible to new players unfamiliar with the story. No background knowledge is required to play this game. But if youâ€™re an avid fan, the developers threw in plenty of treats for our amusement. As amazing as the story is so far, I feel that where Bethesda truly outdid themselves is with the mechanics of the game. Fans will be intricately familiar with the leveling system IURP0RUURZLQGDQG2EOLYLRQÄŞ(OGHU6FUROOV ,,, DQG ,9ÄŤ DQG Zith the general gameplay and feel of moving around in the game. Gone are the times when we must choose our Class and Birth Sign. Well, ladies and gentlemen, Bethesda has delivered unto us,
the most demanding VLQJOHÄĽSOD\HU 53* IDQÄĽEDVH RI DOO WLPH perhaps my favorite new development in the genre, ever. Like blowing things up with magic? Nothing stopping you. Want to do both? Sure. Do them both at the same time. Not only has Bethesda answered our FULHV IRU GXDOÄĽZLHOGLQJ LQ The Elder Scrolls universe, theyâ€™ve even attached the same idea to spells. Yes, you can dual wield spells. There is no restriction on which skills you can get better at, or at what pace, as there were in previous Elder Scrolls titles. Furthermore, every tiPH \RX OHYHO XS ÄŞE\ the way, gone is the â€œten skill increases equals one level!â€? system; the higher your skill that you increase, the more impact it has on how fast \RX OHYHO XSÄŤ \RX JHW WR FKRRVH D single â€œperk.â€? Each skill has a perk tree with between eight and twelve or so perks a piece. As far as the keyboard goes, many things are the same. Movement hasnâ€™t changed. A strange choice by Bethesda, however, was to switch the â€œactivateâ€? and â€œjumpâ€? keys. That one took a little bit of getting used to. Each race of, course, begins the game with a unique Power that can be used once per day, many of which have changed from what they were in Oblivion.
My personal favorite of the new gameplay mechanics is the â€œFavoritesâ€? option.

The wealthy FDQÂľOLYHORQJHUÂśDVWKH\FDQDÉąRUGPRUHÂľWLPHÂś while the poor live each day as if it is their last. Plot loopholes arise throughout the movie. How did this system come about?

The supporting cast in this movie is also pretty stellar, with Olivia Wilde playing Timberlakeâ€™s sympathetic mother who is caught in unfortunate circumstances as she tries to stay alive. A viewer will begin to doubt the credibility of key plot moments as the cast seems detached from one another. While the acting in the movie is good, the actors fail to reach out to each other and the bonds that develop seem to be too forced. Will, who seems to be a normal guy, is incredibly heroic for a man of his circumstances and too daring to believe. The romance between Will and Sylvia develops incredibly spontaneously. Instead of
sweet and inspiring, the love is bland and reeks of Stockholm syndrome creepiness. Other elements, such as Fortis, the timekeeper thug who steals time, and Willâ€™s father, further dilute the plot in political commentary and take away from the viewing pleasure. Niccol, with â€œIn Timeâ€? goes too far in creating a metaphysical message and loses the audience with overzealous preaching. Despite the frigid cast interactions, there is seductive warmth.

Cinematographer Alwin H. Kuchler elevates â€œHannaâ€? to the level of true art.
Greek mythology, the Titans were the original rulers of the Earth and Universe until Zeus and his siblings, the gods of Olympus and children of Titan king Cronus, overthrew them. The costuming department, headed by Eiko Ishioka, was another division that could have used a brush up in Greek history. The JRRGORJLFDO.LQJ'DUHLRVÄŞ$ODQ9DQ6SUDQJÄŤ is depicted as wearing a toga when he steps in IRUKLVÂżUVWVFHQH\HWWRJDVZHUHDQLQYHQWRI WKH5RPDQVQRWWRPHQWLRQWKHIDFWWKDWWKH Kingâ€™s toga looks just as well put together as those found at Kappaâ€™s toga party each fall. Ishioka must also have a thing for sequins; the sparkly craft aids were smattered and plastered all over the epirus bow once it was found, the weapons of the Olympians used in battle, the mask of King Hyperion and multiple other costume accessories that cloaked an important character. Elton John couldnâ€™t have done a better job bedazzling the costumes himself. The artistic genius of director Tarsem 6LQJK ÄŞ7KH &HOO 7KH )DOOÄŤ LV QRW WR EH overlooked. The transitions and cutaways between scenes were impressively beautiful and seamlessly done, with one scene of a fallen manâ€™s bleeding head transforming into a night scene of a Hyperionâ€™s vessel on the water, his blood becoming the waves, his fallen face the ship, his hair the oars propelling the boat forward. The traditionally symbolic scenes of a character washing their hands in a water bowl were made use of, although perhaps a few too many times. Combine the butchered interpretation of Greek mythology with excessive violence and a costume department which must have come straight from the showroom of Caesarâ€™s Palace in Las Vegas, and you have an expected, unimpressive American attempt at a Greek LQVSLUHG ÂżOP:KLOH D EDVLFDOO\ HQWHUWDLQLQJ piece of work, the movie left me walking away with a feeling of disappointment.

One of the unfortunate parts of growing up is when we begin to realize that all the fairytales that we believed as children are not true at all. There isnâ€™t going to be a prince waiting to sweep you away to a happily ever after, and there sure arenâ€™t any mice that are willing to clean my dorm room. The upside, though, is that there are no evil witches or magical curses. As this reality sets in, although it may be upsetting, many of you will be pleased by ABCâ€™s hit new TV series, â€œOnce Upon A Time.â€? Although this series is brand new, with only four episodes aired, I am already hooked. Whether it is due to my childish obsession with fairy tales or its XQLTXH ZD\ RI PL[LQJ ÂżFWLRQ ZLWK reality, I think that this new show is going to be very popular. Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison and Lana Parrilla, this drama centers on a woman QDPHG (PPD ÄŞ0RUULVRQÄŤ ZKR LV brought to a small town in Maine by her biological son. Her son, Henry, portrayed by Jared S. Gilmore is trying to convince her that everyone in the town is actually a fairy tale character frozen in time. Her job is to save the town from Henryâ€™s adoptive mother, who is known in an alternate universe as the evil queen. The series follows Emma through the journey of trying to make sense of the curse the evil queen has placed on the town and the people within in. 7KH XQLTXH ZD\ RI Ă€DVKLQJ WR Snow Whiteâ€™s magical fairy tale world and then back to the real world, with the same characters, is a fantastic way to keep the plot interesting. This new twist on classic fairytales is exciting and refreshing. According to tvbythenumbers.com, in the past three weeks, â€œOnce Upon A Timeâ€? has marked ABCâ€™s highest series rating in the slot in nearly three years. With Sunday Night Football and the World Series as competition, â€œOnce Upon a Time â€œ shines through as Sunday QLJKWV QXPEHU RQH QRQÄĽVSRUWV program.

Gilbert has beÄĽ come a noted owner in the current labor negotiations. But Gilbert has proven to be the wrong choice by the owners due to his history with the players. Gilbert has held a hard line on player contracts and a salary cap since his Cavaliers lost Lebron James in the infamous Decision. In the weeks following â€œThe Decisionâ€?, Gilbert went on tirades through letters to Cleveland fans saying that he will rebuild the team, guaranteeing winning a title within a decade, and even going so far as to declare the acquisition of James by Miami to be illegal by league by laws to demand an investigation of the move. Gilbert had a right to be upset; the loss of Lebron James meant that the Cavaliers went from a successful organization to a team that lost both money and games. In fact, The Atlantic estimated that losing Lebron meant that the city of Cleveland was losing up to two million dollars per home game. Gilbert invested in the Cavaliers at the crescendo of the Lebron era. The team was successful, the arena was packed with fans every night, and the money never seemed to VWRS Ă€RZLQJ QDWLRQZLGH WKDQNV WR the James brand. Now, the cruel truths of a small market team come to light. Due to these occurrences, the NBA owners have advocated for a stricter salary cap, a luxury tax for teams that surpass the cap,
DQGDSURSRVHGÄĽVSOLWZLWKWKH players for league revenue sharing. Looking at the deal from the ownÄĽ ersâ€™ standpoint, the deal looks like a positive for both sides. However, the players have their own arguÄĽ ments for their ideas. The Players Association seeks to maintain the balance of power that the players have carved out for the last decade. The players have been a mixed bag of emotions reÄĽ garding the lockout. Regardless of team, they seem to stand together in solidarity. Many look at each other as their brothers instead of just friends. Many have known each other since their days in college, while some only know people when they enter the league. Regardless of where they came from, the players have their own issues with treatÄĽ ment and money. Over the last ten years, NBA players have become some of the highest paid players in all of AmeriÄĽ can sport. In fact, the average salary RIDQRÉąWKHEHQFKSOD\HULVDURXQG two million dollars. With salaries like that it is not that hard to imagÄĽ ine why NBA payrolls run so high.

Now if every rookÄĽ ie could be as productive for their team as Wall was in his rookie year for the Wizards there would not be an issue. However some players drafted in the top ten picks turn out to be nothing more than bench players. Now their teams have milÄĽ lions of dollars invested in a player that barely plays. The players wish to do away with the current salary cap. This would open up more possibilities for star contracts.

As a truly nationwide campus, Eckerd is home to many NBA fans RIPDQ\GLÉąHUHQWWHDPV2QHVXFK fan is Jake Allgeier, a fan of the Denver Nuggets. This past season Jake watched the Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony to New York with the promise of making more money. The Nuggets have one of the lowest payrolls in the league; Anthony was their highest paid player and was set to be a free agent at seasonâ€™s end. On the proposal of a salary cap for the league, Jake was supportive saying that â€œif teams could spend only a certain amount, it would really allow smaller teams to compete.â€? He continued by sayÄĽ ing that the â€œgame never changes as long as people can be paid as much as possible.â€? Eckerd sophomore and Lakers fan, Walker Banks agrees with Jake. When asked about the lockout, Walker described that the whole scenario was a result of poor deciÄĽ sion making by both parties. When asked if he was in favor of a salary cap, Banks responded that â€œyesâ€Ś even though I know it may hurt the Lakers, but if you look around the league thereâ€™re good teams that MXVWFDQÂśWDÉąRUGWREHFRPSHWLWLYHÂ´ Walker describes himself as a fan of the sport above all else and when told that in the last twenty years only eight teams had won a chamÄĽ pionship he said that if a cap were to be in place, basketball would be much more fun to watch for the fans. And in the end, the fans are the only ones who really are hurt by the lockout.

Itâ€™s that time of year again. November is here, Thanksgiving is fast approaching and the NBA is still in lockout. What does it all mean? It means that it is time for some Eckerd College basketball at the McArthur Center, as the menâ€™s team will be stepping onto the court in Coach Tom Ryanâ€™s 16th season leading the Tritons. Look for a high tempo game coming from the experienced guards led by redshirt junior point guard Woody Taylor and senior guard Wayne Sears. Senior Lance Kearse and junior Darrien Mack will lead the forward corps for the Tritons. Inside the paint, Eckerd will rely heavily on junior Walade Wade, but also look out for the 6â€™ 10â€™ junior transfer from Northern State University, Marko Filipovic from Novi Sad, Serbia, as the Tritons are working to replace the inside gap left by departing seniors Dale Carn, Adio Faucher and Nick Agress.
