Resale meets designer fashion at Buffalo Exchange

Buffalo Exchange buys, sells and trades local clothing and accessories BY TESIA KWARTENG The Shorthorn staff

the Dallas location has been a distinctive asset to Dallas. As the only location in the Metroplex, the store is the little black dress that is reinvented every season but never goes out of style. This is one of the more busy locations that sees more designer pieces compared to other Buffalo Exchange stores because Dallas is a big shopping city, manager Stevie Poulos said. “We’re very fortunate to have great sellers and access to really nice things,” she said. “We have a lot of great regular sellers and we’re really looking for new sellers.” While most of the clothing is women’s, there are style-savvy and frugal items for Mr. GQ. “It’s my secret to not dressing like everybody else, and I like the bargains,” patron Ted Ryan said. April is customer appreciation month and features the annual

Fashionistas on a budget can find deals and steals at Buffalo Exchange where recycling meets the runway. With an eclectic variety of styles to choose from, patrons can shop without breaking the bank. New and recycled vintage, homemade and designer items draw a unique mixture of people. “There’s always so many trendy things and for a reasonable price,” patron Krystal Carson said. “The staff is also friendly and helpful. I really like the atmosphere and quality of the clothes.” Staffers enjoy seeing the creative outfits customers come up with. “The customers are awesome and really open and creative,” manager Brittany Webb said. “It’s a different take on fashion and we have something for everyone. You can be rockabilly, you can be Goth, punk or the all-American girl, whoever you want to be.” Patrons either buy or sell oneof-a-kind items. Customers selling items to the store receive 35 percent of the selling price back or 50 percent back in store credit. Items not sold are donated to the Genesis Women’s Shelter. “I always get a decent credit from selling,” patron Maria Patino said. “If you don’t have money and you have clothes you don’t wear, it’s great. That’s pretty much what I do, I just trade out.” The first store was opened in 1974 in Tucson, Ariz., by Kerstin and Spencer Block. Despite being Swedish, she gave the store an authentic American feel, which was represented by the buffalo. Items were exchanged and the name of the company was born. What began as a small store with Kerstin as the only employee is now a company with 40 stores and two franchises in 14 states, four of which are in Texas. For approximately eight years,

Posters of Public Enemy, Johnny Cash and Björk line the walls around a sea of CDs. Hip-hop music plays in the background as several people browse the aisles of CDs arranged by genre ranging from punk to country. CD Warehouse, located on Collins, is one of the last CD stores in Arlington. “We’re pretty much the only record store left in the area other than Forever Young, but they focus mainly on vinyl and older ‘70s rock and jazz,” store manager Ben Oberg said. CD Warehouse buys and sells CDs, DVDs, video games and vinyl records. Oberg said the store specializes in hard-to-find and out-ofprint CDs. “The Top 40 stuff sells to the regular folk, but a lot of people come in here because they know we’ll have that one oddball release that comes out, or something older that may be a bit harder to find,” he said. Oberg said CD Warehouse accepts special orders for CDs that they don’t carry. Its new distributor has a warehouse full of rare CDs, he said. “They have a lot of rare music and stuff out-of-print,” said customer David Batson, who purchased a collector’s edition of New Order’s Technique. “The price is affordable. I’ll probably come back looking for more stuff.” Oberg said prices for used albums are about $4-$9. New albums range from $10-$15. Despite the increase in online music downloads, Oberg said business is good. ”Our business model is better than most because we’ve got the used product, which brings the cost down to lower than the full album download,” he said. “It’s cheaper to buy the album from us than to buy the album from iTunes.” Oberg said rap is the most popular genre at the store. He said the store sells a lot of mix tapes that usually consist of three CDs and one DVD, with 60 to 100 songs and up to 50 videos. “The mix tapes really bring in a lot of business because not everyone carries those,” he said. Employee Chris Floyd said he’s been working at CD Warehouse for more than three years. He said he

didn’t know much about rap music before working there. “Before this, I was the general manager of a restaurant and I just got burned out. Coming in here, it’s more laid back. I get to talk to people about music and listen to good music all day.” Customers are allowed to listen to CDs before they buy. Floyd said the store also has a CD buffer they can use to fix CDs for about $2. Floyd said local musicians can use the store to sell CDs. CD Warehouse gets 10 percent of the selling price. Oberg said local artists also can have their work displayed on the store walls. “They can put a little artist card next to it, and if they want to sell it we won’t take any money out,” he said. “I’d rather look at art than a stupid Pink Floyd poster.”

Panel of painters

If you happen to be in Dallas during the next few days and you see someone with blue skin and crazy colored hair, don’t freak out. It’s probably just paint. The second annual North American Body Painting Championship is coming to Dallas’ Crowne Plaza Hotel Friday through Sunday. The event is a celebration of all things related to body art, from airbrushed patterns to sponge brushes. Artists will paint models wearing underwear and pasties from head-to-toe and have them take the stage to wow spectators. Executive producer Lisa Richardson said the competition is the only event of its kind in the U.S. She said Dallas was chosen because of its evolution as a center for the arts and proximity to event organizers. “Dallas is home for us,” Richardson said. The event will cost $25 for a day pass or $60 for the weekend. Five dollars will be donated for every artist entered to Arts Fighting Cancer, according to a press release from the organization. Some of the ticket sales proceeds will also be donated.

This year’s judging pan Roper, Gary and Raphaelle Wolfe and returning artist B Also returning from last New Orleans-based body art he was 16 years old, Tracy from conventional art. “Body painting is a beau quite simply,” he said. Tracy said judging this ki ing other kinds of art. “You look for quality, yo look for someone who has g Tracy said. Roper said he was less t aspect. “I’m not one for competi What I’m looking for is the execution.”

The events costs $25 per day, $60 for the weekend.

What’s going on Competitions include airbrushing, sponge brushing and photography. The event will also feature exhibitions from artists around the world. This year’s emcee is body artist Rachel DeBoer, who has experience on the other side of the brush as a body-art model. She said she’s eager to see the ideas artists bring. “I’m hoping to see incredible masterpieces — works of art,” DeBoer said. “I want to see people really pushing the envelope.” Though DeBoer is excited to be leading the ceremonies, she said emceeing has its drawbacks. “I’m kind of bummed,” she said. “I want to jump in and paint and stuff.” Ragen Mendenhall, 2010’s fifth place airbrush artist, said the atmosphere at the last competition was thrilling. “I was astonished at how much excitement there was,” Mendenhall said. “People were really, really ecstatic about it.” Mendenhall said the spectacle of body painting makes for an event that can appeal to all types of artists. “It’s art, it’s fashion, it’s theater and it’s kind of sculpture,” she said. “It’s something that’s so unique and different that when you see it, it captures you.”

DeBoer said the process of painting a body can take six or more hours. She stressed the importance of the bond between artist and model. She said communication is key. “Body painting is a Herculean effort on the part of the body painter and the model,” she said. “I’ve seen body painters become protective of their models.” DeBoer also brushed off the issue of working with nearly naked models. “The body is not a dirty word,” DeBoer said. “It’s not to be censored. It’s the best canvas in the world.” Even as a model, she said the nudity wasn’t a problem. “It’s not just about the naked aspect,” she said. “It’s about the thrill of being free as a performer. For five minutes, you look at the nudity of people, and then it disappears and there’s the art.” DeBoer said she sees the event as an important step in bringing a different and exciting art form to Texas. In meeting and entertaining the people of Dallas, her hope is that her own passion for body painting will spread. “It’s a higher art form,” she said. “It should be celebrated everywhere.” Courtesy: Lisa Richardson

Story Lykke an indieCover angel The Swede’s sophomore album struts strong lyrics, creativity BY TESIA KWARTENG The Shorthorn staff

Swedish indie pop angel Lykke Li gives a more raw, intense and expressive rock sound in her new album Wounded Rhymes. Pushing the boundaries without straying from her signature sound, the cutesy pop hooks from her debut album Youth Novels are replaced with darker yet sophisticated rhymes. The album channels 1960s retro rock, garage and pre-Beatles sounds while adding a modern twist. Tribal beats pound like a heartbeat in “I Follow Rivers” and “Get Some,” as the two are similar in instrumentation. “Get Some” hints at her growth as a musician, pushing away from the bubble gum, while vamping, “I’m your prostitute, you gon’ get some.” Li still shows a sweet and softer side in her ballads. In “Unrequited Love,” lightly strummed acoustic guitar highlights the strength of her irresistible vocals and provides an

example of her early folk sound. The six-minute “I Know Places” is vocally exposing and filled with Li’s quirkiness. “Silent My Song” is the last track and the best example of the album’s echoing production. The lyrical exploration of loss is undoubtedly shown through dark and sultry lyrics. It never feels lonely, and the overall impression left is of a singer who has grown from experience and found her true voice. The album is lyrically strong and the music is a good fit for the words. The occasional monotonous indie guitar sound and melancholy lyrics hurt the album only slightly. All the heartbreak traps us inside the singer’s brain, which isn’t the most pleasant place to be. Swedish producer Bjorn Yttling has produced a masterpiece with Li’s sophomore album. His background as a musician in Swedish indie rock band Peter, Bjorn and John shines through. He artfully blends percussion and wonky key-

Food Scene It ‘Killzone 3’ answers the call of duty Variety and squad-based Scene Gas or Pass multiplayer rank game Be above others By Tory Barringer

Cover Story

The Shorthorn staff

It’s easy to see from the name Killzone 3 lacks subtlety. Players get more or less what they’d expect, but the upside is that it’s very, very good. Picking up where Killzone 2 left off, The Interplanetary Strategic Alliance and the Helghast, two separately evolved factions of humans, continue their war across planets. Killzone 3 follows Sgt. Thomas Sevchenko, a soldier keen on ending the costly conflict. The writing in the campaign runs the spectrum from “compelling” to “embarrassing,” but when it’s good, it’s great. The Interplanetary Strategic Alliance soldiers appear flat and boring, but behindthe-scenes looks at the Helghast more than make up for it. In a game called Killzone, the bigger focus is on the action. In this regard, the game definitely delivers. The player runs from firefight to firefight across broken cities, alien jungles and snowy mountains. In addition to standard military armaments, like machine guns and pistols, players use artillery and walking tanks to wreak havoc on enemy frontlines. The campaign manages to

avoid monotony that affects shooting games like Call of Duty. The game mixes standard “war” levels with stealthy recon missions. Both styles offer compelling gameplay. The real draw is the online multiplayer. The game offers different classes, each with its own special ability. For instance, field medic characters focus on reviving fallen teammates while marksmen stay low and snipe. Each class unlocks more abilities as the player gains experience. This lends a greater sense of teamwork to the multiplayer and expands purpose beyond running and gunning. The experience system also allows the player to allocate points to his

‘Bulletstorm’ hits the mark

Unique methods of killing enemies for skillshots Be Scene Gas or Pass and set pieces add variety

By allen Baldwin The Shorthorn staff

Like many old gaming concepts, point accumulation has fallen to the wayside. Points aren’t used as scoring tools for games anymore. Bulletstorm aims to change that. Released Feb. 22, Bulletstorm is the second game developed by People Can Fly, whose only other credit is 1992’s highly-acclaimed Painkiller series. The main draw to Bulletstorm is its unique approach to combat. Instead of just shooting enemies like Call of Duty, Bulletstorm demands creativity. Skillshots give points to the player for killing enemies in unique ways. Some-

times, skillshots are as simple as shooting an enemy in the head or butt, but higher tallies are more complicated. For example, players use a special leash to pull an enemy close to them, kick him and use a shotgun to blast him into a wall of spikes. The game puts the player in Grayson Hunt’s shoes, a former soldier whose squad was tricked into murdering civilians by Gen. Serrano. Ten years after Hunt discovered Serrano’s plot, they both crash land space ships on the planet of Stygia, a tropical hell with psychotic tribes and a hostile landscape. Despite being an over-the-top action title, Bulletstorm’s story is

well-written and the characters are interesting. Players will have a hard time not laughing at the dialogue and will probably come away from the game with a few new curse words. The game’s brilliant set pieces help keep the game interesting. Fighting giant dinosaurs, controlling robotic beasts and several other events add variety to the game. Bulletstorm’s multiplayer consists of two modes: Anarchy and Echo. Anarchy mode is a cooperative survival mode where groups of players fight waves of enemies. They must reach a certain skillshot score to progress to the next wave. In Echo mode, players replay sec-

Review tions of the campaign to see who can get the higher score. This mode is very reminiscent of old arcade games, giving it retro appeal. The biggest flaw in the game is the quick-time events. Some cutscenes require the player to input timed button presses to progress in the game. These quicktime events aren’t common enough to ruin the game, but are very annoying. Bulletstorm ends on a bit of a low note. The final environments

Bulletstorm Developer: People Can Fly and Epic Games Platform: XBox 360, PS3, PC Rated: Mature Release: Feb. 22 Rating: Four out of five stars

are dull and the story ends abruptly, setting the game up for a sequel as opposed to resolving the conflict. Despite this, Bulletstorm is a breath of fresh air for shooter fans sick of Call of Duty and its many clones.
