Tuition Increases by 10 Percent, May Rise Again Next Year University of California tuition may increase by as much as 16 percent by 2016.
by as much as 16 percent by the next academic year. The UC Board of Regents met Sept. 15 at UC San Francisco to discuss methods of compensating for a projected systemwide budget deficit of $2.5 billion by 2015. Depending on the amount of state funding, students could be paying anywhere from an eight to 16 percent fee increase yearly. According to Executive Vice President of Business Operations Nathan Brostrom and Vice President of Budget and Capital Resources Patrick Lenz, there are three proposed methods for raising revenue. The Regents favors a 50-50

split in which students would pay an eight percent fee increase, with the state funding the remaining eight percent. A second option has students paying 12 percent of the increase while the state pays four percent. The final scenario would require tuition to increase by 16 percent each year until 2016. “This scenario that we’re looking at is not what we want,” Sherry Lansing, UC Board of Regents Chairman, said in Bloomberg Businessweek. “There’s not a person around this table that wants to increase tuition. We’ve done enough.”
Under the last scenario, undergraduate tuition for California residents would rise to $22,068 from the current $12,192 by the 201516 academic year, if state funding for the UC system does not increase, according to the UC Board of Regents. UC Office of the President Spokesperson Ricardo Vasquez said that the Regents has not made any concrete decisions. “It’s not even a proposal yet,” Vasquez said. “It’s just a discussion. The idea was to create See Tuition, page 3
Student Dies Due to Heart Complications Professor to work toward establishing scholarship in her memory. By Margaret Yau Managing Editor Cristina Torres, a Warren College senior, died Sunday, Aug. 21 due to medical complications relating to a pre-existing heart condition. She was 23. “[Cristina] was a very lively person — she would brighten up the room,” Torres’ sorority sister Kim Garcia said. Literature professor Jorge Mariscal is hoping to create a CRISTINA Torres scholarship in Torres’ name, to be given each year to a promising Latina undergraduate student. The scholarship is being planned. “[Cristina] was always inquisitive and eager to learn. I know that, given more time, she would have become a fierce defender of the Latino community,” Mariscal said in an email. Torres was pursuing a double major in Spanish literature and political science, with plans of attending law school. She was also the social chair and an active member of the Sigma Pi Alpha sorority. “She was the center of attention, the life of the party,” Marisabel Salinas, Torres’ sorority sister, said. Salinas and a few of her fellow sisters plan on getting Torres’s college degree awarded to her posthumously. Torres’s family held a memorial service for her in Sun Valley on Aug. 25. Her family and sorority members also hope to have a memorial service on campus, but a date has not yet been determined. Torres is survived by her sisters Karina and Fabiola Torres, her mother Irma Torres and her father Gregorio Torres.

for Education in Chile
By Nicole Chan | Associate News Editor
tudent-led demonstrations to reform Chile’s national education system are drawing international media attention for mob violence and subsequent arrests: the BBC reported approximately 900 arrests that were made following a 60,000-strong Aug. 4 protest. Even with such staggering numbers, all 59 University of California Education Abroad Program students studying in Santiago have remained in the program and are actively attending class at this time, according to UCEAP communications representative Emilia Doerr. Despite EAP administration’s warning to avoid protests as a safety precaution, some EAP students have even chosen to participate in alongside local students. Recent protests interfered with Muir College senior Megan Young’s studies at the public university, la Universidad de Chile. Young was required to transfer to the private university Pontificia Universidad Católica — also located in capital city Santiago — for her second semester abroad. Young, one of six UCSD students in Chile, describes her experience as witnessing history in the making.
Although Young resides in an apartment in central Santiago where the protests are largely concentrated, she said she has never felt unsafe. “The protests have never affected me in a negative way, nor have I ever felt like my life was at risk because of the protests,” Young said. “I’ve gone to a few in June and one just this morning.” BIG Chilean students are protesting the PICTURE privatization of education in the form of See more marches, hunger strikes and tomas, a Spanish pictures term that refers to students occupying a from Chile university building so that the administration on PAGE 11. is unable to function as normal, Young said in an email. Tomas are different from sit-ins in that they can last for indeterminate periods of time, sometimes lasting for months until the protesters’ demands are met. The protests — which originated in May — started See PROTEST, page 11

Snape kills Dumbeldore. Tyler Durden isn’t real. Soylent Green is people. It may be considered a social sin to reveal spoilers such as the ones previously mentioned, but a recent study at UCSD discovered that contrary to popular belief, spoilers actually enhance one’s reading experience. UCSD department of psychology graduate student Jonathan Leavitt tested the effects of spoilers in short stories that have themes including ironic twist, mystery and evocative literary stories on UCSD students. Results show spoilers enhance readers’ enjoyment rather than detract from them. Upon entering UCSD’s graduate program with an MFA in writing fiction, Leavitt was encouraged to start this study by psychology professor Nicholas Christenfeld, who helped him develop the project. Leavitt and
Christenfeld began designing the test in September of last year — testing and analysis of the raw data took months to complete. They performed a total of three experiments with 12 different short stories by authors such as Roald Dahl and John Updike. To be a part of the study, subjects were only required to be fluent and able to read in English. Due to such simple qualifications, subjects were chosen at random. All participants received versions of the same story that were unspoiled, with a separate spoiler on another sheet of paper and a version that had a spoiler that was put in the beginning, as if it was the opening of the story. They would read all three versions and rate how much they enjoyed each one on a scale of one to ten. “We were interested in the experience of suspense and why people think that the excitement of reading a story depends on not knowing the ending, but then they reread the same
stories and can enjoy them just as much, even when everything is already known,” Leavitt said. “You’re focused on outcomes and how things will turn out, and that gives readers the impression that if they already knew how it turned out, they would find the story less or not interesting.” All story genres proved to be more enjoyable despite being spoiled. “We found very little difference,” Leavitt said. “It seemed that what was most important was that the spoiler was clear and understandable. Across different genres, it seems like spoilers were making people enjoy stories more.” The only story that did not benefit from being spoiled was Anton Chekhov’s The Bet, an ironic twist story. However, Leavitt feels that enjoyment was reduced not because it was spoiled, but because the spoiler was poorly written. Readers found the spoiler to be difficult to understand and were

uncertain on how the story would end based on the spoiler. The rest of the data still indicates that spoilers enhance reader enjoyment. Leavitt’s next goal is to apply his theory to other narrative media and to find out why spoilers are having this particular effect. He has developed two theories to explain the trend. “One is that having a spoiler makes a story easier to read and understand,” Leavitt said. “The other theory is that people tend to focus on suspense regarding the outcome, and once you know how the story will end, it enables you to broaden your focus and appreciate the other aspects of the story, like the language and development of characters.” Readers can contact Michael Chang at firstname.lastname@example.org.

UCOP: Fee Increase Would Lead to More Enrollment in 2016 ▶ Tuition, from page 1 with what to do in respect to fees.” According to the UCOP, such a fee increase would lead to increased faculty and enrollment, as well as continued investment into expanding academic programs and facilities. However, Lansing said that this scenario was less than ideal. The percentage of the fee increase is dependent on the amount of funding the UC system receives from the state. According to Lenz and Brostom, the decline in state funding began in the 1990-91 academic year, when the UC system lost 20 percent of its financial support from the state. Currently, state support for the UC system is 10 percent higher, not adjusted for inflation, than the 199091 year, though the number of California high school graduates has increased from 68.6 percent in 1990 to 74.4 percent in 2011, spurring enrollment growth. In 2005, UC and CSU officials entered a six-year agreement with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to have the state provide the minimum resources the system would need to reaffirm the UC’s high standards for education while increasing enrollment with their main intentions dependent on institutional accountability and state funding. The agreement was meant to expire during the 201011 fiscal year but lasted only two years because of the state’s budget crisis. At the meeting, the Regents also suggested alternate methods of raising money, which include an emphasis on corporate and alumni donations, as well as seeking new tax revenues. Other alternatives include planning classes with a higher student-faculty ratio and cutting faculty salaries. These alternatives are considered as efforts that “would destroy UC’s historic commitment to quality,” the Office of the President said in a statement. The Regents was scheduled to vote on a new budget plan in November 2011, but Lansing said she was doubtful the board would be able to decide on a plan by then. Vazquez said the earliest the Regents would vote on any fee increase would be in January 2012.

UC EAP Students Work With Chilean Students to Mobilize for Student Funding ▶ Protests, from page 1 and a “Thriller” reenactment. However, recent protests have furthered divisions between the police and the students. According to an Aug. 26 story published in the Guardian UK, police used tear gas and water cannons against protesters. The same story reports that a 16-year-old boy was shot in the chest during the protests. According to local media, witnesses said the police were responsible for the boy’s death. “I have participated in some of the protests and am in full support of the students,” Warren College senior Jordan Dalton said in an email. “Many Chilean political concepts have been exported from the United States and the concept of education is no different. Chilean students are extremely politically informed, especially about the United States.” Dalton — who also spent her first semester in Chile at la Universidad de Chile and is now at Pontificia Unviersidad Católica — sees the protests as a way for students to demand better funding for schools, debt reduction for former students and an increase in transparency in the government. While Chilean students are organizing and mobilizing largely online with social media, Dalton said the campus remains an important location for debates and discussions. “A paro [an unauthorized strike] doesn’t mean the students don’t go to school,” Dalton said. “In a well-run paro the students are at the university discussing ideas for furthering their cause or preparing for the next demonstration.” Despite frequent UC tuition increases drawing criticisms of privatizing public education, student response has been largely
underwhelming. The UCSD campus didn’t organize for last year’s system-wide March 2 event, according to a March 3 Guardian article titled “Campus Fails to Mobilize for March 2 Day of Action.” UC students can learn something from Chilean students, Young said. Young attributes Chilean students’ political presence as a response to its political history and the country’s structure of education — the U.S. government supports 35.8 percent of higher education, while Chile’s government supports 14.4 percent. “The government in Chile hasn’t been established for as long as the United States, so the younger generation who didn’t experience repression during Pinochet’s regime have a kind of fearless hope and opinion for their vision of the future that they want for their lives,” Young said. According to Doerr, UCEAP says it is too early to say how the nation’s events are impacting applications or interest for next year. Despite the circumstances, Young and Dalton both agree that witnessing the social movement is an important education in and out of itself. “The student movement has the slogan ‘Educación Gratuita y de Calidad,’ which means ‘Education that is free and of quality,’” Young said. “Chile is at a crucial point of change, and if we hope to become conscious global citizens and take a role in shaping the kind of society we want as well, it would do a world of good to be informed about what’s going on and take a leaf out of the students’ book to defend what’s important on a bigger picture.” Readers can contact Nicole Chan at email@example.com.

OPINION Free Furniture: a Dumpster Diving Saga
oving off campus is great. Not only do you finally have a place to call your home away from home, but it’s also far, far away from the stifling confines of the prison they call on-campus housing. So I was jazzed about moving out, that is, until I kicked in the door of my new home and discovered that the house was nearly as barren as Sarah Jessica Parker.
for All Margaret yau email@example.com
I needed furniture. But a quick glance at my bank account told me that short of rummaging through a dumpster, it looked like I would be eating my meals whilst squatting around an overturned cardboard box. And that’s what I did — for the first two nights. The next night, my friends and I left our dignity in our empty house and headed for the Costa Verde dumpster. If you’re disgusted by the idea of dumpster furniture, then you obviously haven’t seen my sweet IKEA coffee table (retail value: $50). Or my awesome collection of folding deck chairs, my roommate’s desk, three of my trash cans or the vast array of cleaning products that I used to scour the furniture of stranger-danger germs. The cherry on top of my furniture shopping experience was when I discovered my storage unit had a dropoff zone for unwanted and forgotten junk. There, the phrase “one man’s trash, another man’s treasure” rang true. I snatched up a gigantic painting of the Grand Canyon that would tear down a section of drywall if I tried to hang it up. Ah, the aesthetics of interior decoration. If you’re actually going to take this column seriously and you’re currently en route to the nearest dumpster, flashlight in hand, keep these tips in mind: Only look in dumpsters near large apartment complexes during popular move-out and move-in days. There, you are more likely to find actual furniture than dozens of not-so-carefully tied up bags of food scraps and mold. People who simply can’t cram their beloved desk vanity into the moving truck will often tearfully toss it in the nearby dumpster. And nothing says vanity like a dumpster, right? Please, for the love of god, don’t take anything home that has a cloth surface. Ignore that heavily brokenin mattress — just assume that it’s riddled with bed bugs and unsightly stains that you wouldn’t want to confront under a black light. Cleaning is key. Your stockpile of Clorox will finally pay itself off handsomely — anticipate devoting the next hour or so to cleaning your newly acquired treasures. Some of your furniture may have come from a dumpster, but if you want to effectively impress, not repulse your guests with just how miserly you are, clean up. When I stop to think about it, dumpster diving is a revolting concept. But after taking a long look at my thoroughly cleaned, completely free swag, I decide to take pride in doing the impossible: I’ve managed to out-hipster the guy who got his desk chair at the local Salvation Army.
Summer in Review
Tuition increases, a chancellor departure and equal access for undocumented students have at least one thing in common — they will have an untold impact on students at UCSD in the coming year.
chool may have been out for the summer, but political developments took no break. Among the relevant — the UC Board of Regents announced further tuition increases, Marye Anne Fox announced her plan to step down as UCSD’s chancellor in the following year and Gov. Jerry Brown signed the first half of the California Dream Act into play while the second half awaits his signature. Tuition Woes Increase For anyone tracking the financial status of the University of California, one thing is clear: This year is the beginning of the end. For the first time, the UC system is receiving more income from student tuition than state funding, a development that points to the increasing privatization of our university. In 2011 alone, income from tuition has risen $360 million, and according to the Los Angeles Times and the UC Board of Regents, it’s only going to go up. On top of a 30-percent tuition increase since 2009, the Regents, as of Sept. 15, are considering a further 8 to 16-percent increase over the next four years. UCSD is attempting to raise income through tried-and-true methods. This year, 18 percent of UCSD’s freshman class comes from outside California — an admittance rate up 36 percent from last year. While the higher tuitions of out-of-state students may increase funding, this solution shuts in-state students out of a UC education. The unprofitable (read: mostly humanities) university programs that face the deepest cuts will look to private funding to escape extinction, an attempt that mirrors the University of Michigan’s use of private help to keep their business school afloat. Despite these grim reminders — there is still hope. Student action has yielded definitive budgetary changes in colleges such as San Diego State. When SDSU’s new president was offered a salary that was a $100,000 increase from his predecessor, protests over this issue led to a review of state educational salaries and a cap on CSU president salaries. While student activism has proven successful for SDSU and could indeed galvanize action at UCSD, students and the UC Regents have options beyond marches and demonstrations. Threeyear degrees and less stringent general education requirements are valid plans that have the potential to save the UC
system. The options are out there. Now it’s just a matter of taking action. Chancellor Steps Down Over the summer, Chancellor Marye Anne Fox announced plans to renounce her administrative position and return to the chemistry classroom after seven years on the job — eight years after June 2012, when she is scheduled to set down. Given that the average tenure of a chancellor is 4.5 years, she’s been here longer than most university leaders. Which isn’t to say her tenure wasn’t successful. Since her appointment in 2004, UCSD has launched $3.5 billion in construction projects — among them, Fox achieved her goal of building transfer housing. Recognition followed suit: Awards have been bestowed upon the UCSD community — Nobel, Pulitzer and MacArthur prizes — and Fox received the National Medal of Science at the White House last fall. But Fox’s tenure wasn’t all sunshine and awards. Budget cuts, rising student fees and racial conflict were the source of heated protests, and we lost three top professors to Rice University because they offered them more money — a clear step backward for us academically. Most notably, the “Compton Cookout” and the string of racially charged incidents that followed in February 2010 left UCSD students with an indelible image of their university and those who run it. The Black Student Union roared outside the Chancellor’s Complex that winter, demanding that Fox address the lack of support and outreach for minority students. That’s the kind of job that can wear a former professor out. So as much as Fox has done for UCSD, it’s fair to expect her successor to be someone who understands the demands of the job. Preferably, the new chancellor can focus on internal conflicts like those that shaped Winter 2010, before they turn into national news, in addition to keeping the university competitive. The big successes for UCSD — acclaim, high-enrollment, big-budget projects — aren’t as bright in the face of student unrest. Now that we’re paying more for our education than ever, it’s time students demanded some input in the choice of our leader and figurehead — or at least choice in the issues we See Summer, page 5

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Protests Another Facet of Study Abroad Learning
Dream Act a Worthy Investment in Student Minority ▶ Summer, from page 4 want prioritized — and the opportunity to offer feedback during this new appointment would be a great start. Senate Passes Dream Act In the midst of many political developments this summer (California redistricting, the debt ceiling crisis) came a big win for undocumented students. Assembly Bill 130 passed through Congress, giving said students access to privately funded scholarships. It’s a great victory for undocumented students, but it’s not over yet. Assembly Bill 131, a sister bill that would grant undocumented students access to state scholarships and
grants, is now waiting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature. Brown’s initial support for the bill is waning due to the bill’s potential strain on the state budget, but that hasn’t stopped both sides from rehashing old — but perfectly legitimate — arguments. One side stands by the reasonable assertion that the state barely has enough money in its coffers to support its legal citizens — much less a wave of undocumented ones. The other side, and the side we ultimately fall on, claims that the state investment in undocumented students would pay off in the long run. Many of these students did not come to this country of their own volition, and because they already have roots here, an education is the solid boost they need to become a productive
member of society. This has already been proven with rulings in Plyer v. Doe and the passage of Assembly Bill 540, which allows undocumented students access to California public schools through the 12th grade and in-state tuition rates for state colleges, respectively. Not allowing these students to finish what they (and the state) have started will only damage the state economy and push these students into a permanent lower class. Even if the bill is signed, the battle is far from over. These bills may give undocumented students a freshly minted college degree, but they still won’t be citizens — that’s still under Congressional jurisdiction. But until then, passing AB 131 will be a worthy step towards creating a more inclusive American dream.
Dear Editor, Articles written by American newspapers have suggested that the Chilean protests are dangerous and are hindering American foreign exchange students from advancing in their studies. As a UCSB student studying at a public university in Santiago, I feel the reverse, that this is a unique educational opportunity. Isn’t that the most important part of studying abroad — to experience a foreign culture? Otherwise, why not stay in the comfort zone of your home university? While studying in a foreign place, you will be adjusting and adapting daily to the new culture around you. We “viejos” (second semester students) who were around when the strikes started, had an adjustment period, but we now accept it as just one more adjustment that comes with the territory. It is a historic time in Chilean history, and I am lucky to witness it firsthand, learning more outside the classroom than inside. Every Chilean is current on the student protests, whether they agree with them or not. They will give you a history lesson about the past forty years to explain the value of democracy in Chile. They are an incredibly informed public, far more than the majority of Americans. Even more sadly, the average Chilean probably knows more about American politics than the American public. Is it possible to study in Santiago? Absolutely. Though the Chilean students are on strike, foreign students are still obligated to attend class, as are the professors, who are not officially on strike. While there definitely were nuisances in trying to arrange semester schedules, the directors of EAP Chile and the international students offices at the universities are working
diligently to ensure that everyone has enough classes to meet their educational goals, including the option of special studies projects with Chilean professors to make up for classes that were cancelled. Compared to California, the class size can’t be beat. When was the last time all your classes contained two to five students? We know our professors on a personal level and have more flexibility in the class. Open discussion is the norm, making classes more interesting and creating a supportive environment for those still learning Spanish. Students in California could learn a lesson from the Chilean youth. UC tuition has risen more than 75 percent in three years. Our higher education system has tanked. Classes are being cancelled, majors/minors are dropped and students crashing over-enrolled classes is now a way of life. But the difference is, they are doing something about it. The student demonstrations are all about providing affordable, quality education for every Chilean. Rather than feel inconvenienced by the protests, American students should take advantage of this moment in Chilean history! Spend your time observing how students can democratically make a difference in improving the educational system that is failing them.

or both newbie freshmen and wizened old-timers, the hangover is an inevitable consequence of a night of the true college experience. While the nausea, headaches, fatigue and general sense of dread are rarely enough to convince you to give your binge-drinking the boot, not being able to finish the three MMW papers you wisely decided to leave off until the day before can be apt reason to figure out some new tricks for dealing with the morning after. But before you start eating burnt toast and taking more shots, tune into the advice of two San Diego bartenders, David and Tina Abott*. David and Tina, who respectively have five and six years of experience behind the bar, dished in (with their fair share of disagreement) on the specific hangovers caused by common college drinks, as well as which tricks they use to ensure a smooth recovery. Vodka
David says that because of its purity, high-quality vodka won’t give you the nausea that other liquors will, but the high concentration of alcohol makes for greater dehydration, which, as the shots add up, will probably cause an aching headache later on. To avoid the worst, however, steer clear of the cheap stuff. Sugary Cocktails Both Tina and David also agree that the sugary, fruit cocktails are the worst concoctions when it comes to hangovers. “Sugar See hangover, page 7

a flattering photo. Yes, I refrained from including the sarcastic answers I personally find endearing, but are undeniably interpreted as bitchy to those that are not well versed in Grade-A Los Angeles sass. And yes, I did click the button that said I like dogs even though I don’t, in fact, like dogs. I can tolerate them. But so far online dating has been anything but difficult. Talk about myself (no problem), answer numerous nonsensical emails (that’s basically my everyday job description) and get hit on — all from the comfort of my own home. The notion of online dating came about when a fellow Guardian editor asked me to share my thoughts on the phenomenon. I wasn’t sure if her question was prompted due to her own personal manhunt (turns out that it was) or if it was her sneaky way of proposing a column idea (it was not, but so it became). I quickly replied to her instant message with a “don’t knock it ‘till you try it” type response, along with the personal note that I had not tried it thus far due to my lingering “hopeless romantic sentiment.” Now, this sentiment definitely still exists. But if I find my Romeo in a trite yet intimate Parisian scene or over a cup of coffee at Pete’s (in broad daylight might I add), isn’t he Romeo nonetheless? But once I created my profile, I quickly began to notice some things about the slew of twenty-something San Diego boys online. First, I learned that intuition is going to be a key factor in making this experience successful. With only a few hundred words and a handful of photos to make a decent first impression, many of these guys aren’t using their best judgment when it comes to leaving out details about their World of Warcraft habits and choosing photos that aren’t taken in front of their bathroom mirrors. After some browsing, I next realized that my intuition is more shallow than I’d like to admit. I began to wonder if these men even lead lives outside of their laptops. But if anything, OkCupid was to blame. After taking a few personal quiz questions (i.e. Would you rather be the big spoon or little spoon? Do you believe in God? etc.), the website quickly weeds out all the potential suitors that don’t fit your interests through their matching process. So once I answered my fair share of questions, I was left with a long list of atheist big spoons and the only thing left to do was look at their photos. How could you not be superficial? All the work was done for me. Now before we get too far into this social experiment, let’s get a few things clear. I will not openly discuss said newspaper column with said dates but I will not lie about my affiliation See modern, page 7

Each body will have it’s own physical reaction to various brands of beer, but overdoing any brew will give you a more nauseous hangover the next day. Due to its gaseous nature and the fact that it expands your stomach as the night goes on, a beer-induced hangover will probably consist of more stomach pain and nausea than anything else. As for which brand, Tina sticks to Coors while David prefers Budweiser. It’s all about personal taste and limiting yourself to what you can handle. Avoiding and curing hangovers “Have some Jaeger and Redbull, and then drink water,” Tina recommends. “It counteracts the effects of the hangover. The ‘bomb’ part of it really gets you up and any caffeine helps with the headache.” Commonly known as “eating the If you know you’ll hair of the dog that bit you,” drinkbe drinking, get a ing more alcohol the next morning couple Gatorades is generally thought to be a bad idea, and pop them succeeding only in putting off your in the fridge.

If you can manage to pound them in before you go to bed, you won’t wake up with such a bad hangover.” She also recommends that for every drink consumed, you accompany it with a cup of water. “When I’m at the bar and I see someone drinking a lot, I’ll just slide them a water,” she said. Both say that the most important thing is to know your own drinking limitations. All it takes is some planning. “Be conscientious of what you’re drinking,” Tina said. “Know your limit and what works best for you, and just stick to that, and you’ll be fine.”
with the Guardian (because let’s be real, that’s usually the first thing my subconscious blathers out). And I will in no way sacrifice my personal morals for the sake of this column. That means I will not send or positively respond to winky face emoticons. I will not have sex on the first date and I will in no circumstance respond to someone whose profile states they are good at “playing with yo’ vaginal receptacle!” (true story) or with the initial message “hey dorky! you the random type?” (also another painfully true story). And I will carry pepper spray. As a young woman on a dating website, much of my experience was predestined. A week into my OkCupid experience, I had already done exactly what one of the cofounders of OkCupid would later suggest in his welcome email; I had contacted the guys I was interested in. With a plethora of men that seemed less than appealing, I had found a grand total of two guys I found both attractive and interesting. I did my best to reply to the litter of suspiciously vague yet complimentary messages from users on the site (many of which I later compared with coworkers’ messages to find that the ambiguity was a mere way of disguising a mass message we had all received). But the two coffee dates I’ve already set up upon my return to San Diego were both initiated by me. So loyal readers, wish me luck as I embark on the dubious journey that is online dating. And if I miss my deadline or don’t answer my phone, just know that I was last seen with musicluvr21 from Escondido.

Most notably, the duo signed a contract with HBO for a pilot show. They’re currently developing the script, but “things just take a lot longer than we thought,” Lindhome said. They’ve envisioned it as the female version of “Flight of the Conchords ” — or “Glee with dick jokes,” as Lindhome has taken to describing it. “I think it’s kind of like an extension of our stage show, where it’s two single girls in LA trying to make it,” she said. “But it’s us like five years ago, so we aren’t recognized yet or getting paid at all.” For now, they’ll continue turning the subjects of their girl talk into matter-of-fact songs like fan-favorites, “Pregnant Women Are Smug,” “Go Kart Racing (Accidentally Masturbating)” and “This Party Took a Turn for the Douche.” But not every subject can be made into a hilarious-ukelele jam. “People give us song ideas all the time, and we’ll consider them, but they don’t realize that it has to fill out three minutes,” Lindhome said. “Facebook, blind dates, parents, holidays — you name it and it has been brainstormed and rejected by us.”

their Larry the Cable Guy, it’s just impossible. What makes us laugh is a reflection of ourselves — one that we loyally defend despite the criticism of unfazed naysayers. Case in point: “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” the surrealistic sketch show/prolonged nightmare and brainchild of creators Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Wrongfully dismissed as yet another ADHD stoner-gag exhibition in Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup, “Awesome Show” is a landmark not only in cult television, but the dawn of a new kind of humor altogether — one that insists on doling laughter, confusion, anger and terror in equal measure. Call it stubbornness, but I was never one to turn fanboy for any one fad (except, I’ll admit, a three-year dedication to “Weird Al” Yankovic in middle school). And when I first experienced “Awesome Show” — the cast of off-thestreet weirdos, John C. Reilly as disturbed anchorman Dr. Steve Brule — I was entertained but hardly addicted. Yet, the more Tim and Eric I casually consumed, the more difficult it became to resist. Their bizarre musical numbers, invented holidays and public access commercials all shone with a brilliant new set of comedic standards that television had been somehow missing altogether. But, as is the bitter pill of any cult follower, the glaring judgment poured in from all sides. “Random” and “disgusting” became dirty words, spat from the ignorant mouth of the non-convert. And while a couple of lawless teens sticking it to the man by eating their own boogers in a musical PSA may not be an attractive image, the latter accusation is particularly aggravating when you consider the shit that actually passes for entertainment. Take for example the episode of “Two and a Half Men” when the lovably perverted Charlie, after considering sleeping with a pregnant woman, proclaims, “Just because there’s a bun in the oven doesn’t mean I want to butter it.” The hasty laugh track is answered by the Pavlovian guffaws of some 14 million home viewers who all seem to ignore that the notion of ejaculating onto an unborn fetus is far more disturbing and morally reprehensible than digging for that proverbial gold. Granted, “Awesome Show” is designated for its target audience. But its sheer creativity is hard to dismiss while much of mainstream comedy television is beginning to resemble one long, Officeinspired mumblecore-like sitcom. If our tastes mature but never really change (of course “Weird Al” became an “Awesome Show” regular), Tim and Eric’s upcoming feature film, though propped upon a cast of big comedy names like Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis, will likely do nothing to change the face of mainstream comedy. But the devout will continue to celebrate the duo’s demented creations in the face of our unamused and therefore inferior peers, keeping alive what is so intrinsically our own.

check in and trip out France’s Chateau Marmont talks cosmic-pop and marbles in space. By Ren Ebel Predicting the future is difficult. But Parisian space-dance quartet Chateau Marmont appreciates the attempt. “I think it’s a mix between two periods,” founder/keyboardist Guillaume de Maria said about Chateau Marmont’s retro-futuristic sound. “We are big collectors of analog synths. The way they are built, the way they look, the way they sound — it reminds us of old sci-fi movies.” The music video for the band’s motorik, vocoder-doused “One Hundred Realities” stunningly captures this fondness of the new as told by the old.

ALBUM REVIEW Girls Father, Son, Holy Ghost true panther sounds
Looking for a great pharmacy school?
SF Heartbreakers Return With Soul on Sophomore Effort
followup to the fantastic debut Album and the equally impressive Broken Dreams Club EP, Girls’ Father, Son, Holy Ghost offers up the same ’60s rock sound — only now with incorporated string orchestrations and a gospel choir — with a confident, well-produced finish. “Honey Bunny,” the upbeat surf-rock opening track, is most reminiscent of Girls’ previous releases. The sunny guitar and rumbling drums, highlighted with backing gospel harmonies, works as a great transition before Father, Son, Holy Ghost begins to explore its country, gospel and soul undertones more deeply. “Die” borrows elements of ’80s metal, using a distorted guitar intro to lead straight into an aggressive headbobbing riff reminiscent of Black Sabbath — a completely new stylistic venture for the band. Meanwhile, Christopher Owens’ fragile and pained lyrics assure that “no, nothing’s gonna be okay” and “we’re all gonna die.” The sentiment marks a transition from Owens’ yearning for love to his acceptance of failed dreams.
But Father also has its share of Girls’ expected tenderheartedness. On the dreamy gospel “My Ma,” shimmering electric guitars float in a chorus of angelic backing vocals. Easily the most powerful track on the album, “My Ma” reveals Owens’ strive for happiness and love, as his honest, half-whispering voice weaves through the four-minute track. Following suit with the nostalgic styles and forlorn themes, “Forgiveness” presents the peak of Father’s passion. The track’s country-ballad style, full of spacious guitar and slow, acoustic strums, details Owens’ most straightforward thoughts of forgiveness from his own family. The eight-minute epic strives to bring positive out of life’s struggles while conceding that bad news is something tough to ignore and forget. A more frustrated, technically mature story of love and heartbreak, Father, Son, Holy Ghost’s hook-filled gems create a flawless soundtrack to the first crushes and lost loves of a summer long forgotten. — Tanner Cook

Nationally Ranked Tritons Remain Undefeated in Their First Six Matches
E rik J epsen /G uardian file
With a 4-0-2 record, the Tritons are looking to continue their undefeated run as they face off against CSU Dominguez Hills at the Home Depot Center on Sept. 23.
▶ W. Soccer, from page 16 way. Coming off a tremendous postseason run that saw the Tritons come just short of a NCAA Division II National Championship last year, Armstrong said the team is eager for the new season. “I’m excited by what I’ve seen so far this year,” Armstrong said. “Our passing and creativity is outstanding, and we’re not a secondhalf team anymore. We’re starting and finishing our games, and we’re a lot stronger on the ball. We have a lot of talent coming in this
year, we have an incredibly deep bench and the subs coming off are always raising the level of play.” UCSD is showing no signs of fatigue: Six games into the new season and the No. 4 Tritons remain undefeated. Kicking off their campaign with a trip up north, UCSD played Western Washington to a 0-0 draw and then beat perennial powerhouses No. 10 Seattle Pacific 2-0. The Tritons then headed back down to Southern California to open conference play, facing off against the only two other nationally ranked squads in the CCAA, No. 10 Cal
State Los Angeles and No. 19 Cal State San Bernardino. UCSD took a scrappy 1-0 win against CSULA on Sept. 3. The only goal came in the third minute when McTigue headed in a corner kick from Johnson, UCSD’s deadball specialist. On Sept. 9, the Tritons drew 1-1 against CSUSB with an unassisted goal from Callahan. The following week, UCSD took down CCAA South Division newcomers San Francisco State 2-1 in a hard fought overtime win, and in the same weekend blew out Cal Poly Pomona 4-0.
“Right now, we’re taking each game one game at a time,” Armstrong said. “Our past success doesn’t matter this season. But I think if we continue to keep improving, we’ll go far.” The Tritons’ next match is slated for Friday, Sept. 23 at the Home Depot Center against Southern California rivals CSU Dominguez Hills. UCSD will then head back home for the first home game of the season on Sunday, Sept. 25 against CSU San Bernardino. Readers can contact Rachel Uda at ruda@ucsd. edu.

MEN’S SOCCER PREVIEW
M ichelle J aconette /G uardian file
The men’s soccer team will look to improve on its 3-3 overall record this week with an away game against CSU Dominguez Hills.
By Rachel Uda Sports Editor MEN’S SOCCER — The core of the men’s soccer team has returned to the pitch for the 2011-2012 campaign. Head coach Jon Pascale’s squad is looking to improve their 8-3-6 overall record from last season, a campaign which proved to be as exhilarating as it was frustrating. Going without a win for their first six matches, the Tritons then went on an inspired eight-game undefeated streak, during which they drew against nationally -ranked CSU San Bernardino and upset No. 14 Chico State in a stunning double overtime victory. However, the deficit the Tritons found themselves in after their rocky start to the season proved insurmountable, and they narrowly missed a post-season berth. This season, Pascale has made a few adjustments to his starting eleven. Stalwart junior defender Harris Rabin is filling in the gap left by graduating hard-nosed fullback Jared Kukura — captain and AllAmerican second team selection. He is accompanied in the back line by sophomores Cory Wolfrom, Alec Arsht and Gavin Lamming. They sit in front of sophomore goalkeeper Josh Cohen, who saw limited playing time last season as a freshman, but has played every minute of every game so far. Junior Alex Portela continues to control the play in the midfield
with sophomore Andrew Keimach sitting in behind. Pacey juniors Kian Malek and Adam Zernik have returned to run the widths, while up top, the Tritons will look to sophomore Andrew Ball and junior Evan Walker for offense. So far the Tritons are 3-3 overall, splitting their only two nonconference games, beating Cal Baptist 2-1 and then dropping a game 0-1 to Saint Martin’s. UCSD opened league play on Sept. 9, losing 0-1 to CSU Los Angeles. In their next match, the Tritons came from behind, scoring two goals within the span of three minutes to beat CSU San Bernardino 2-1. The Tritons then traveled to San Francisco, taking a 1-0 win from SFSU. In a back-and-forth contest, UCSD broke the draw after Portela scored off a penalty granted in the 88th minute. Two days later the Tritons fell 3-0 to Cal Poly Pomona. “At this point in the season the most important thing for our team is that we keep improving every day,” assistant coach Eric Bucchere said. “We have a diligent and motivated group, and if we stay focused and humble the sky is the limit.” The Tritons will face CSU Dominguez Hills in their next match on Friday, Sept. 23 at the Home Depot Center. UCSD is scheduled to play its first home game on Sunday, Sept. 25 against CSU San Bernardino. Readers can contact Rachel Uda at email@example.com.
MEN’S SOCCER 2011-12 2010 Record: 8-4-6 overall (8-3-5 in CCAA) Starting 11: Josh Cohen, Harris Rabin, Gavin Lamming, Cory Wulfrum, Alec Arsht, Andrew Keimach, Alex Portela, Kian Malek, Adam Zernik, Evan Walker, Sam Ball. Bottom Line: Already four games into conference play, the Tritons seem hampered by changes in personnel. They will need to work the kinks out quick in order to remain competitive for a playoff berth.

ith a 4-0-2 record, the No. 4 ranked women’s soccer team is off to their best start since 2007, and with 10 out of their 11 starters back from last season, the Tritons look as dangerous as ever. All-American senior Kristin Armstrong has returned to tend the net for the Tritons. In her third year as the keeper of choice for head coach Brian McManus, Armstrong will look to anchor the Triton defense. She is joined in the back by veteran defenders, senior Sara Spaventa and juniors Ellen Wilson and Hayley Johnson. Junior midfielder Jessica Wi and senior midfielder Shelby Wong are continuing to run the widths for the Tritons, while junior Danielle Dixon and senior captain Annie Wethe — 2011 All-CCAA first team selection — are also continuing their tenures in the middle. They will be joined in the midfield by freshman midfielder Cassie Callahan. As the only underclassman to crack the starting eleven, Callahan serves as the replacement for graduate Lisa Bradley, who earned All-American honors in her junior and senior seasons. Callahan — recently named CCAA player of the week — is making a seamless transition and has already notched three goals for the Tritons in her past three matches. Junior Gabi Hernandez and senior captain Sarah McTigue are sitting up top for UCSD. The duo has proved lethal for the Tritons thus far. 5’10” junior Hernandez is a constant threat in the air, while McTigue — who was named to the AllWest Region Second Team last season — has already netted two goals. Rostering 25 out of a maximum 26 players, the depth of the squad provides a number of choices for McManus and insurance for a team that has not had much trouble in the way of injuries anySee W.
