1492: Conquest of Paradise page 20 d
Over the past two years, federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders have consulted with thousands of Canadians and concerned groups from coast to coast. These consultations included Royal Commissions, participatory arings, and hearings in the provinces and territo-ries held by provincial and territorial legislatures. Federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginat leaders have agreed unanimously on August 28, 1992 in Charlottetown on a package of constitutional proposals that recognizes the equality of all Canadians and represents all of our interests. The agreement is now before Canadians. The agreement proposes that the new Constitution would contain a statement of key economic and social ob$ctives shared by ail of the governments in the federation. The objectives include comprehensive, universal, portable, accessible and publicly administered health care, adequate social services and benefits, high quality primary and secondary education and reasonable access to post-secondary education, collective bargaining rights and a commitment to protecting the environment, The economic policy objectives to be entrenched would&e aimed at strengthening the Canadian economic .union; the free movement of persons, goods, services, and capital; ensuring full employment and a reasonable standard of living for all Canadians; ensuring sustainable and equitable deirelopment I Exclusive provincial jurisdiction would be forestry, mining, tourism, housing, recreation, municipal affairs, cultural matters within the province, and labour market development and training. In addition, to ensure the two levels of government work in harmony, the government of Canada commits to negotiating agreements with the provinces in areas such .as immigration, regional development and telecommunications. Federal-provincial agreements on any subject could be protected by the ConsQtution from uniiateral change. L The new Canadian Constitution would recognize the distinct nature of Quebec, based dn its French language, unique culture and civil law tradition.
In the reformed,Parliament, the Senate would reflect the equality of the provinces whiIe the House of Commons would be based more on the principle of representation by population. As wel I, various provinces w&Id be assured a minimum amount of seats in the House of Commons. The proposed Senate would be made up of six elected senators from each province and one from each territory. Additional seats would provide representation for Aboriginal peoptes. The reformed Senateâ€™s powers should of the elected Senators in the policy process. The proposals recognize that Aboriginal peoples have an inherent right to self-government and that the Constitution should enable them to develop self-government arrangements and to take their place in the Canadian federation. The proposals recognize Aboriginal governments as one of the three constitutionally recognized orders of government in Canada. In addition, the proposals provide for a negotiation process between Aboriginal leaders anp provincial and federal governments to put this right into effect. The recognition of the inherent right would not create any new rights to land, nor dilute existing treaty rights. Now that Canadaâ€™s federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders have reached , .a consensus, It is the right of all Canadians to understand the new proposals.

Supermarket tours educate consuniers _

Ianjacksonhasnewsthatcould rock your tomatoes. He operates the Waterloo Public Interest Res e a r c h G r o u p ( V V P I R G ) Supermarket Tour, a program designed to educate shoppers. Most shoppers are aware of pesticide and over-packaging problems related to the food industry. What we may not be aware of is the high degree of influence exerted upon us the moment we stroll throughthelocal grocer%. Consumer manipulation involves a h i c k of a b u n c h more than just advertising. Store layout, backgrounhmusic and product locationare a l l + part of a planhng scheiie to increase consumer spending. Most supermarkets provide only one entrance. This design allows the store planner to control the flow of cons;lmers. Commonly sought items are spread throughout the store to ensure the customer tours the whole place. Some stores set up specialty item displays to encourage impulse buying. For example, a grocer may arrange a kosher section at the front of a Jewish neighbourhood store. Products are arranged on shelves purposefully. Research, according to Ontario Public Interest Research Group’s (OPIRG) shopping guide, has shown that items at eye-level sell best. Food manufacturers must buy slots on the gr~~ev store s h e l v e s . N e w c o m p a n i e s a r e often unable to afford eyelevel slots and remain less competitive. Shelf rent costs are passed on to the con-
sumer, whose bill increases by as ,/ much as 10 per cent. Even the m u s i c p r o v i d e d f o r your “listening pleasure” is actually a device for maximizing sales. The proper term for this technology is soundscaping. During slow perio d s of the day peaceful tunes are piped in&+ t h e s t o r e t o k e e p s h o p pers inside longer. During busy periods the tempo picks up to subconsciously push dawdlers out to make room for new shoppers. Jackson is also concerned about corporate concentration. He asks,

The Canadian government is concerned about the increasing number of mergers, hence, the creation of the Bureau of Competition Policy in 3986. In f983,‘600 mergers occurred in this country. In 1988 1,301.mergers occurred. This protective act has done little to affect merger trends. As of 1990,300 mergers had been investiRated. Only four have been reviewed, and one-merger has been rejected, Jackson warns, “Buying a

“What is good business?” He questions how corporate takeovers will benefit consumers. What does tend to arise from takeovers is that decision-making power which becomes concentrated in the hands of a few, who may not even be living in the affected region or country. Secondly, often layoffs and plant closures follow a takeover as the merging companies consolidate. Althoughmany differentlabels exist on the shelves many are not truly independent company products. Some products mayzven be produced in the same factory but sporting different labels. OPIRG’s Supermarket Tour ~dbook,publish~inl99o,claims that in the U.S.A.

Council’s reasons for not recognizing the event here included the ambiguous definition of pomography, and the inappropriateness of City Council for matters of “putlic education.” The K-W Coalition rebutted Council’s decision by reminding them of their leaderership role in the community. “The proclamation is concerned with-a public issue which concerns many people in our suciety,” stated the Coalition. “It would be nice if Council would be willing to take a stand on the issue.” City Coucillor Morty Taylor, however,saidthatCityCouncilwas not the proper forum for dealing withtheissue,aIludingtoTrudeau’s famous proclamation to keep the government out of the bedroom’s of the nation.

Sincel98O,theresistancearmy, Falintil, has been engaghd in guerrib warfare against the l&40,0 Indonesian troops in East Timor. Every level of civilian administration is penetrated by army personnel; East Timor is a military project. Anti-integration demonstrations andcelebrations of Falintil have led to greater repression - arrests, torture, killings and disappearances. With few exceptions, western countries have not supported the UN’s resolution to East Timor’s right to self-determination. Canada abstained from voting until 1980, anduntilthis yearhasvotedagainst. The US, from 1976 until this year, has also voted against. It is not known how these countries voted in this year’s UN condemning, for the first time since 1976, of Indonesia. Thisnewresolutionwaslargely in response to the November 12,
1991 Santa Cruz massacre of at leat 100 civilians during a thousands strong gathering of Timorese people. Since this “incident,” the Indonesian government has promised to show greater respect for human rights, but a list of sentences in connection with the massacre prove quite differently; sentences for Indofiesian soldiers range from 8 to 18 months for charges such as “torture” (cutting off the ear of a demonstrator) and “opening fire without orders”. Sentences of Timorese civilians range from six months to life, most averaging around six ym, for charges of “subversion” and “expming hostility.“ International media coverage has been almost non-existent. This has largely been due to restricted access to the country, but also because of huge corporate interests with Indofiesia (such as INCO and Bata Shoes in Canada). The huqnan rights abuses of Indonesia, not just ‘in Timor but in many of’its’ own “provinces,” is now becoming an issue of global concern. For those interested in finding out more about the situ&on in East Timor, on October 21, Abk Barrett0 Soares, a native East Timorese will be talking about his experiences in East Timor and about the resistance movement there. Peter Eglin! chairperson of the department of SociologyandAnthropologyatWLU,wiIl be speaking on the Canadian ekenomic and political ties to East Timor. A 3kninute film about the Santa Cruz massacre, In Cold Blood, will also be shown. This will be taking place at UW Biology-2 room 350, beginning at 7~00 p.m.

Letter to MWster relates Unbersities’ coneems:
Doug Wright rebutts Minister on “Restructuring” by Iuin Anderson Imprint staff
The University of Waterloo has sent its official response to the government-created committee studying “restructuring” of the university system by way of a letter signed b y UW p r e s i d e n t D o u g W r i g h t . The letter, w h i c h w a s s u b m i t ted after a meeting of the senate long-range planning committee on September 30, suggests bluntly that challenges are being raised b y p e o ple who are simply unawareof what goes on within universities already. Dr. E&hard Allen, Ontario minister of colleges and universities, says in a statement: “The challenge of a new paradigm of open, continuous and successive learning is and will be enormous, and even d a u n t i n g , i n t e r m s o f institutbnal change.” Wright does not understand the need for the creation of a c o m mittee and does not see why it is necessary. “The reasons for the creation of the Task Force are not readily apparent. . . . The autonomy possessed by universities in Ontario seems to have served well both the public and the universities. It is very important that this autonomy be preserved/ he says in the letter. Allen poink to projections of a 34=per<ent increase inpost-seconda r y enrolment in the coming decade as a need for the committee. In order to keep post-secondary education accessible to everyone, he feel.3 that it is imprative that the
current system change. In his letter, Wright says “Recent statistics from the Organ&ation for Economic Cooperation and Development -(OECD) show that Canada has the highest university participation rate (per appropriate agegroup)ofanyof theOECDcountries. The similar rate for Ontario is expected to be higher than the national average. T h i s w o u l d s u e e e s t
F o r reference, it is i n t e r e s t i n g to note that in constant dollar terms, OHIP payments to physicians and practitioners have increased by 128 per cent, transfer payments to Community and Social Services have increased by 318 per cent, while u n i v e r s i t y o p e r a t i n g grants have increased by only about 15 per cent. W r i g h t f e e l s that “. . . u n i v e r s i t i e s h a v e a n eauauv i.mDortant role in

He feels that the committee is e&ouraging/demandingthat universities provide more service for the same or fewer dollars. He points to the fact that, since 1977; the universities’ share of the provincial budget has shrunk from arotid six per cent to about four percent.Togiveitsomemeaning,if the previous share were3o be restored today, it would amount to an influx of an additional $918 million to the university system.

The committee also touches upon the conflict of teaching versus research. “In the continuum of learning, the most advanced r&&her will be but the most refined learner a m o n g s t us/ Wright says: “Teaching and research should not be seen as different or opposing forces. Rather there is a synergy between university teaching and research making them inextricably related.” He would like to see additional funding to support
the full costs of research. In his closing paragraph, Wright says @e Minister has restricted the scope of the committee by describing the issues facing the system as “the challenge of the hour.” He says the university comm u n i t y h a s t o “ i d e n t i f y o u r longterm n e e d s , i n v e n t o r y o u r e x i s t i n g strengths and encourage these strengths publicly and financially.” “Statement on Pustsecmda y EducutimP by the Ontafiu minister of colleges and universities, Dr. R i c h a r d A l l e n , d a t e d J u l y 1992: In the. last 20 years, Ontario has moved into an era of mass postsecondary educationonascale virtually unrivalled by other jurisd i c t i o n s . A p p r o x i m a t e l y o n e miltion Ontario Adults now access our colleges and universities annually. Enrohnent projections, labourmarket needs -and the challenge of living in a global society point to a further 34 per cent increase over this decade. T e c h n o l o g y , w o r k p l a c e reorganization, changing demogra@ics, the challenge of a high performance economy in an age of global competition/co-operation,thedemandsof democratic politics in a complex society, and the ongoing human thirst for under&an&g - are combining, despite Ihe many accommodations already made, to break the historic mould of p&secondary education in Ontario. No longer the finishing schools of the professions, the coc o o n s o f h i g h l y e d u c a t e d elites, o r the isolated institutes of the pure reseafchef, our poasecmdary in-
stitutions are undergoing transformation i n t o v e h i c l e s for an education-saturated society in which, for individuals, learning never ends, and for an economy where it will be increasingly difficult to detect where workplace ends and academy begins. Excellence remains the goal, not in the husbandry of an elite but in the cultivation of all. In the continuum of learning , the most advanced researcher will be but the m o s t re-fined l e a r n e r a m o n g s t u s . The challenge of a new parad i g m o f o p e n , c o n t i n u o u s and successive learning is and will be enormous, and even daunting, in terms of institutional change. It forces - to some degree has already forced alterations in funding, diversity of ifistitutions, governance, accountability, -student support, styles of l e a r n i n g and teachin , i n s t i t u t i o n a l structures, relationsf.l‘ps between institutions and systems and between education and the world of work, New technologies stand poised to link postsecondary studies to a waitin public as never before and to i n d u s t r i e s to training, e&cation and research in new ways. In a new paradigm, equity and access take on a new meaning as means and ends, but justice, the good life and economic efficiency aiike require that quality remain t h e g o a l . A n e w p a r a d i g m o f postsecondaryeducationisagoal w o r t h our best efforts. In a context of constiaint it forces us to reconsider existing comInitmmts, to repriorize and reallocate in order to expand w h a t m o m e n t u m p r e s e n t l y exists and to Wee r e s o u r c e s a v a i l a b l e for the task.

with Peter Brown Autumn has always been my favourite season because of its sense of starting something new, of accepting new challenges, of finishing with the leisure of summertime and getting down to work Probably an overriding reason for this is two decades of schooling in a system which marks the beginning of its year at September. Another source of autumn’s allure is its contradictions. It is death, or at least preparation for it The days shorten, the leaves change colour and fall, and animals, including’humans, gather provisions for the coming winter. At the same time, it is the time of harvest, a celebration of wealth and consumption -- anyone who observes Thanksgiving or Oktoberfest would agree. Christians would argue that Thanksgiving, because it is intended to thank the creator me or the cosmos, or whatever -- for blessings bestowed upon us all, is precisely not an orgy of largess’e but the realization that we must harvest now so that we have enough to endure the winter. Of course, those people still enter their I SO-pound pumpkins in the hll fair, not exactly an expression of frugality or conservation. This juxtaposition between wealth and worrying about future poverty, between joy and tragedy, occurs for (to?) me each autumn. Thus, it seemed strangely appropriate that my family’s Thanksgiving weekend occurred against a backdrop of jar and tragedy. My sister, over two weeks overdue, finally eve birth to a baby on Saturday morning in Whitby. Matthew jonathan is a healthy, nine-pound boy. My grandfather Clarence, who entered hospital in Coliingwood two weeks ago, deteriorated gradually over the weekend. He is 86 years old and is not expected to live past the end of the week. I’ll quit the confessional and get to the point. Thanksgiving and autumn seemed the appropriate time for life changes as drastic as birth and death because, like autumn, the coincidence of birth and death cause one to look both ways, forw;lrd and back. Those few days of overlap between the life of my nephew and grandfather are the midpoint of a century and a half. This sobriety, this proferring of a perspective, is especially poignant now, as Canadians seek to agree upon a selfdefinition using the most crude of structures: referendum, yes or no, compromise or set back progress. This referendum, too, occurs in an environment of joy and tragedy, of wealth and poverty. Some argue that constitutional issues are tiny and irrelevant when placed against more visceral problems like the economy and unemployment Ordinary Canadians don’t care what powers their province has, these people say, just so long as they can feed their families. Others say that Canada must put this round of bargaining behind it and reach a consensus for economic stability to return. Still others say that we, as a first world nation, do not appreciate how lucky we are, so lucky in fact that we can afford to consider such angel-on-a-pin questions because we do not have to worry about being shot at or starving to death. The primary principle that Canadians must observe, in this referendum as in their everyday lives, is that this autumn, this referendum, is not death, or even preparation for it A Canada, perhaps not t h e o n e that was created before my grandfather but certainly a descendant of it, will outlive all of us. And this contitution has to serve my nephew as well as it serves me.
Like Perot I’ni losing,- patience “ Talk is cheap, words are plentiful, but deeds are precious”
- Ross Perot
The above words were spoken during the U.S. Presidential debate, but are more than applicable to our present plebiscite situation. I’ve pretty much lost all patience with the Yes side of this idiotic constitutional debate not because I disagree with them, but because most of them use the r e a s o n i n g p o w e r s o f a n o v e r - z e a l o u s bomagain Christian. One positive outcome of this Yes/No circus is that I finally have seen a caricature of Trudeau done by Jack Lefcourt, our w o n d e r f u l editorial c a r t o o n i s t . H i s o n e o f Perot was great, but Tr,udeau was a work of art. Trudeau, Ed Broadbent, and m o s t o t h e r elder statesmen currently re-surfacing i n the p u b l i c e y e t o d e b a t e t h i s p r o p o s i t i o n have a different air about them, one of a parent t e l l i n g t h e i r c h i l d f o r t h e h u n d r e d t h time to n o t d o s o m e t h i n g . It is in part a projection of confident knowledge, and partly weariness of the r e p e t i t i o n . W h i l e m o s t of the Yes side have an boundless supply of energy, enthusiasm and rhetoric, the No side sighs, and drags up nasty old historical truths pertinent to the present “consensus,” and point out the many flaws and contradictions devised at Charlottetown. Yes siders excitedly claim that this agreement is a landmark in reaching a broad consensus among the diverse people of Canada on a broad range of issues . . . and that they are voting Yes to a united Canada, (Does that mean no-sideti a r e voting for disunity? The word play continues.) The more stupid faction of Yes forces support the report simply because they figure art endorsement will end tie squab-
bling - nothing could be further from the truth. The opposition argues that the deal prioritizes collective rights over the indi-
vidual and consequently grant govemmen@ niore power over our democratic institutions. Some among these ranks have simply come to the conclusion that if Qu&ec can enact the draconian language laws they have to ensure distinctiveness, they certainly don’t need any more power to alienate visitors t o t h e p r o v i n c e . T h e idiots on this side of the coin are the ones voting no because they don’t believe the province has enough extra powers with the C h a r l o t t e t o w n a c c o r d , a n d t h a t Bourassa compromised too much. Even if one entirely ignores the question of the distinct province, some are gravely concerned about the affect a yes vote will have on the functioning of the government. However, most people are focusing on Qu&ec’s new powers as the central issue in this non-binding plebiscite, and well they should. The French-only province has been tugging at the Fed’s purse strings forever, a n d i s t h e o n l y o n e i n recent history that pouts so much about having entrenched and distinct rights in the constitution. So tell me: when you drive into old Qukbec City or Montreal, do you not sense it is somehow different than any other province you have ever been in? It seems to me that, even before the 1982 C o n s t i t u t i o n , the p r o v i n c e has more than managed to remain distinct. By the way, where did the notion come from that English Canada were acting l i k e G e n e R o d d e n b e r r y ’ s Borg, s i n i s t e r l y attempting to assimilate the French? Aggghhhhhhh!!! This whole procedure, let alone the ’ “ c o n s e n s u s ” r e p o r t , i s t o t a l l y fucked. The government is allowed to spend tens o f m i l l i o n s o n p r o p a g a n d a i n an election year to manipulate public opinion, to persuade us a Yes vote is a matter of life or ‘death, and
furthermore has the nerve to call
the October 26 vote a r e f e r e n d u m , impl*g that the results will be binding! Make no mistake - this vote is a simply a prodding of the electorate. Of course, we all know
Mulroney’s history of attentiveness to public opinion. The sympathetic (or, pathetic) play .on words by yes campaigners is almost as ludicrous as the U.S. Army inventing things such as “smart” bombs. Compromise is one of the words Yes siders always like to drag up. It’s not perfect, they say, but we have to compromise. Yeah, right. Hey! I’ll give you a million dollars if you’ll let me put a bullet in your head. Come on, compromise. I agree with Yes-siders that there’s all kinds of nice-sounding and well-intentioned clauses in the agreement that have nothing to do with Qukbec, but I resent having to make an all-or-nothing decision of this mag-nibde. People barter over the price of a used computer, not fundamental changes to the document that governs the functioning of one’s country. Another reminder - it doesn’t matter what you or I read in to the text of the Charlottetown agreement; the S u p r e m e C o u r t i s c h a r g e d with i n t e r p r e t i n g this thing, sorting out contradictions and so o n , s h o u l d i t a c t u a l l y b e s o m e d a y written into the constitution. I’m also curious about this idea of disunity. It would appear to me that the only time the issue makes headlines is when the federal leaders and Q & b & s elite are squabbling about who has provincial or federal authority over what. I think most of us would rather vote for a new government wanting to deal with more pressing issues than the validation o f M u l r o n e y ’ s selfserving agenda. If a n y o n e h a s n ’ t made up their m i n d ’ yet, please keep in mind that even though the government has attempted to frame the debate in a particular manner, you are not constrained from thinking beyond their parameters of debate. The electorate, by and large, is not as stupid as the govemment likes to think we are-
This is all so bloody stupid.

Oktoberfest ticket mess -part//To the editor,
I have been part of the selling of Oktoberfest tickets a t S t . J e r o m e ’ s C o l l e g e for four years. Having read the “Letter to the Editor” in last week’s I m p r i n t I feel it i m p o r t a n t t o c o r r e c t Mr. W i l l i a m ’ s d i a r r h e a of the pen. I will quickly address one of the many foolish comments made last week. The so called “list” which w a s s p o k e n s o h i g h l y o f was actually m o r e c h a o t i c t h e n (sic) the line up itself! I have the list in my possession and it contains names of people who were actually not there! No wonder the list was discarded. I A l s o , i t s h o u l d b e k n o w n that t h i s y e a r ’ s Executive enacted the e x a c t same procedures as last year. The anger Mr. William’s has is misdirected. He should write an article which chastises those people who r u d e l y p u s h e d i n f r o n t o f h i m , not the Executive. Indeed, is it really necessary to help University students form a line? They have done so for the four years that I have been part of the Union and this is the first time we have had a problem. How was anyone to know that things w o u l d be different this year? Clearly, however, our procedures did n o t w o r k . T h e r e f o r e w e s e t up a committee (shortly after the tickets were sold) to address the problem. This committee will soon offer yuggestions so that next year this will not happen. It is sad to see that a student from the St. Jerome’s community (which prides itself on communication and h o n e s t y ) w o u l d b l u r t o u t nonsense b e f o r e attempting to talk and offer constructive critkism (which many have @en and they will tell you that they were weU received). It is unfortunate that s o m e o n e had to embarrass himself by expounding his i g n o r a n c e in s u c h a p u b l i c f o r u m . I f a n y o n e
wishes to discuss this issue with office door is always open.

STOP demeaningvegetarians To the editor,
I am writing in response to Sandy Atwall’s ( s i c ) a n d C r a i g N i c k e r s o n ’ s o p e n letter to Consolidated. I do agree with your position on gun control and I also agree that the sampling is excessive. However, I don’t feel that the samples manipulate anyone as, for the most part, Consolidated is “preaching to the converted.” The opinion that this “rebellion” is institutionalized and mass-produced and packaged (therefore not really rebellion) is an idea that I agree with too. But, almost all discontent is-expressed in the form o f commodities these days. That’s the way our society works, whether or not anyone likes it. What I don’t agree with is the way that these opinions were expressed. The i s s u e of vegetarianism was oversimplified. I’m sick and tired of meat eaters telling me that I’m merely an idealist. I don’t care what you think, but I don’t want to be subject to your constant mocking. As for your stance on vegetarianism, the idea that it is contrary to nature can be questioned. The human digestive system is n o t d e s i g n e d t o d i g e s t .meat. H u m a n intestines are longer than (for example) cat intestines. Cats are naturally incltied to eat meat. However, because human intestines are long, the meat stays in the system longer and can go bad in the system before it is completely digested. Also, the “production” of meat is ncit what I would call natural. Is implanting hormones and antibiotics into animals natural? Do animals naturally locate themselves in
small pens in which they cannot even turn around? Are chickens naturally de-beaked and do they naturally gravitate to two foot cubed cages, piled on top of each other so that their shit drops down on the chickens b e l o w t h e m ? D o other (non-human) animals make weapons w i t h tihich they kill animals? The answer to all of these questions is no. The day I see ei*er of you killing a cow naturally (i.e. a wild cow which you kill without the use of mechanized weapons) then I will concede that it is natural. F u r t h e r m o r e , t h e r e are s e v e r a l other reasons for being a vegetarian and which have been expressed in Consolidated r e c o r d i n g s . These include environmental, health, and ( a n o t h e r f o r thos& flakey “liberals”) world hunger issues. As for testing on animals, insulin was ultimately tested on humans before it was proven useful. Also there are several drugs that were tested and worked on animals but were detrimental to humans. Thalidomide is a good example. Thalidomide, a drug tested o n animals, was given to pregnant women and the result was severe deformations of the n e w l y b o r n c h i l d r e n . Animal research is n o t m e r e l y a m o r a l issue, although those (moral) arguments are not invalid. I wilI not continu? with this, h o w e v e r , a s i t i s m u c h too complicated an issue to be discussed in this letter. Finally, I’d like to say that Sandy and Craig can believe whatever they want, vegetarianism is a personal decision, and I respect that. I have many friends who eat meat (including my roommate and good friend) and I like them all just the same. H o w e v e r , d o n ’ t r i d i c u l e t h o s e who make that decision. There are legitimate reasons for it and what does it really matter to you anyway? My problem was not with the opinions expressed but the way that they were expressed. Have your opinions - I don’t care. But, refrain from stating them in a demeaning and smug manner. Contrary to how you feel you are not better than, superior to and more intelligent thanthose among us who have made personal moral choices or anyone else, for that matter. Jounne Bender Ist yew Arts

You are cordially invited B e i n g i n L o v e m e a n s h a v i n g t o s a y y o u ’ r e s o r r y every 15 minutes. ’ - no greeting card anywhere I’m usually riffing on some political or social theme here every week, or whenever I can get around to writing this column, but over the past few weeks, I’ve been caught up indirectly in the aftermath of several failed relationships, and the beginnings of a few new ones. Love isn’t exactly a topic I’m comfortable writing about (having little or no experience in the area) but it’s just one of those things that you spend most or close to all your time thinking about. Seeing people in love and having them around seems to make life somewhat brighter in general. Here are two very happy people you think. They’re probably going to walk beside a stream somewhere later on and I bkt they’ve stayed up all night in a coffee shop more than once. This may all sound a bit too sickly sweet, but without these types of relation&@ occurring around you, your life would be completely unbearable I’m sure. When these relationships go sour for one reason or another it’s the pit of despair with a capital D. Having this type of stability ripped out of you is like losing an arm or a leg. It’s something which, to a point, you took for granted, and realizing you can lose it is (in some cases) more than some people can stand. Someone might catch you on the rebound, but that seems to add to the problem more than anything else. It% m o r e t h a n s e e i n g p e o p l e y o u c a r e a b o u t h u r t b y this type of emotional upheaval b it’s something you end up thinking about, intentionally or not, when you start a relationship of your own, and thinking about the end isn’t exactly the best b e g i n n i n g . I’m talking about mismatched couples and couples that seem like they’re made in heaven, and of course couples you think would be absolutely perfect (the‘latter u s u a l l y i n c l u d i n g yourself). And then there are, of course, people who are in love with the idea of having A G i r l f r i e n d o r A B o y f r i e n d r e g a r d l e s s o f w h o Mr/Miss R i g h t m a y b e . I m a y j u s t b e one of the latter - a pretty sad situation I’ll admit, but an attractive one nonetheless. I f t h e j o y m y f r i e n d s h a v e r e c e i v e d f r o m h a v i n g a r e l a t i o n s h i p i s a n y t h i n g clqse to what I perceive it t9 be, it’s wel.l worth the time, effort and risk of being hurt one takes by entering into this kind of bond. Silly, isn’t it?

Dave, you’re not I thinking To the editor, First I’d like to say that Dave Thompson’s (sic) editorial in the October 2 Imprint is just so out of touch it’s not worth commenting on. I can only suppose that Dave felt we needed a “no” argument to counter the government ad that was also in that issue and so threw something together. Certainly anyone who characterizes the debate solely in terms of Quebec has neither read the actual text of the Accord itself or followed the debate very closely. Dave does us all a disservice by ignoring the real p r o b l e m s w i t h t h e A c c o r d a n d t h e n not even on touching on what might actually be good about it. I fear that though Dave might get away with this shoddy bit of work because this debate has become a lightening rod for everyone’s grievances with just about everything. People seem willing to listen to any naysayer if he can just touch on some little bit of ire within them. This is our big chance to have our say, after all. Who cares if our answer has nothing to do with the q u e s t i o n w e w e r e a s k e d ? I’ve b e e n f o l l o w ing the debate very closely and it seems that some people who are voting “no” aren’t voting against the defects of the Accord so much as against Brian Mulroney, Bob Rae, Quebec nationalism, affirmative action, immigrants~ high interest rates, free trade or the recession. No question, there is a lot wrong with the Accord: the Triple E Senate is really only about one-and-a-half “E”; the Canada Clause might be interpreted as defining a hierarchy of rights where, for example, Native Self Goverxunent might take precedence over equal rights for women; British Columbia is going ballistic over the 25% floor in the House of Commons for Quebec (even though all of the Maritime provinces also have similar floors although not as large). All of these are important issues in my opinion, all of them
more important than “putting Quebec in its place”. Meanwhile, the Accord will finally recognize Native self-government; it will set governments on track to a full economic union within Canada; it gives Quebec enough recognition to’feel comfortable and safe, while not going as far as Meech Lake did; it reduces a huge amount of duphcation between Federal and Provincial levels of government; the Canada Clause very clearly defines Canada’s national character as a generous and liberal society; and, while notperfect, the new Senate does give up these advances simply to take revenge on Mulroney, or put Quebs in its place? Finally, I think that the notion that we can reject this deal and get a better one is an absurd one. If Quebec is saying no because it didn’t get enough and BC is saying no be cause Quebec got too much, one can assume that the next time Quebec will want more and BC wilI want to give less. I don’t see a better deal in that equation. If the Accord is a bad one, then we should vote n o , b u t please d o n ’ t give me the feeble lie that we can hold out for something better.

Quebec ain’t goin’ nowhere To the editor,
One unfortunate, yet common, misconception that has arisen among the Canadian population outside Quebec during the unity referendum campaign has been that a “No” vote will not lead to Quebec’s separation from the rest of Canada. This could not be further from the truth. Quebec will almost certainly seek sovereignty if the result of the referendum is of a negative nature.

Trudeau would have us believe. One might agree that it would be ridiculous of Quebec to separate from the rest of Canada since such a move would inevitably lead to economic uncertainty if not disaster for that province (nation). However obvious this may seem to the rest of Canada, the same does not apply within Quebec. Every time a politician of a business person warns Quebec about the drastic economic implications of separation they are accused of fear-mongering or trying to scare Quebec into supporting Canadian unity. LJnfortunately, the likes of Jacques Parizeau and Lucien Bouchard have led Quebecois to believe that the economic results of a “No” vote, or for that matter, sovereignty, would be minimal at best. As well, if one looks back to the death of the Meech Lake Accord, they will remember the humiliation and sense of rejection that Quebec claimed they felt as a result. Such feelings, or perceptions of them, would be increased exponentially should the “No’! side prevail. Quebec would see this rejection of their entry into the constitutional family by Canada’s citizens as a sure sign that they’ve outstayed their welcome. Their natural response would be to bring the Parti Quebecois into power. Without a doubt the top priority of the PQ is sovereignty for Quebec and they would proceed to hold a referendum on the issue at earliest convenience. This would mean Quebec’s divorce from Canada. Quebecers would feel that all of their options with Canada, based on decades of failti negotiations and rejected deals, have been played out and that there is no hope for their continued existence as a province of Canada. Such a bid for sovereignty by Quebec would lead to heated negotiations between the government of Canada and Quebec over the terms of separation. If Canadians thought the constitutional negotiations were long and drawn out wait until the two sides start arguing about who is to pay what share of the of the national debt. As well, what &ographic portion of Quebec do sovereign Quebecers actually get? What about government buildings and property in Quebec? What about Canada’s military? Does Quebec get one quarter of our warplanes? Obviously there is a great potential for hostility between the two sides
once such questions arise. One only hopes that cooler heads will prevail as to avoid any violence. Moreover if Quebec were to separate, it would not only mean their economic demise but unfortunately, we would be dragged down with them. The drop in the value of the Canadian dollar over the past few weeks is only one indication that Canada’s economy is susceptible to the reservations of international investors. Whether the faltering dollar is a result of Trudeau’s denunciation of the Charlottetown Accord or Mulroney’s speech in which he warned “no means no” or of the release of tapes of Bourassa’s aides saying that Quebec% premier “caved in” does not matter, What matters is, that if investors feel that Canada is politically unstable, as they will most surely feel if the “No” side wins, then not only will they cease to invest in our country, but they will also pull out what they have already invested. Canadians have to take a serious look at how much the negative effects of a “No” vote would outweigh any possible negative effects of a “Yes” vote. Certainly the deal is not a perfect one but to expect a better one as a result of a “No” vote is very naive. First, its almost a miracle that the likes of Clyde Wells, Robert Bourassa, Don Getty and Ovide Mercredi all agreed to the same document considering their stubbornness only a few short months ago. To expect any greater compromise from any side is foolish. Second, if the “No” side does win the referendum there will be no negotiating table to return to. It was two years after the death of Meech before Quebec returned to the negotiating table. One must have a very good sense, of humour to suggest that they would rush back to the table after a rejection of the Charlottetown Accord. Finally, Canadian’s in general all sick and tired of constitutional squabbling. They desperately want both the federal and provincial governments to concentrate on the economy and to pull Canada out of it’s recession. However, political stability is a necessary ingredient for investor confidence and economic recovery. Think about that if you’re planning on playing Quebec’s “bluff” in the upcoming referendum.

Global coming out days
by Tddd VeldhuizFn
spedul to lmprint
This year, lesbian and gay communities around the world will be celebrating Global Coming Out Days - an event which encourages bisexuals, gays and lesbians to take the next step out of the closet, whether it be telling family and friends that they are gay/lesbian or assuming a more active role in the struggle for their rights. Homosexuals have historically been the subject of persecution by individuals, organizations, and governments; it was only with the advent of the Gay Liberation struggle that legislated oppression began to be repealed. The cornerstone of this movement is “coming out” 7 declaring to others that you are gay/lesbian. The power of this act is that it makes lesbians and gays visible, rather than being a faceless minority. Many closeted gays and lesbians are afraid of others finding out what they are. They envision themselves being disowned by their parents, losing their friends, being dmmmmated against by professors or supervisors, and being harassed or gaybashed. Although these things happen, life out of the closet is becoming easier every year due to the large number of gays and lesbians who are already out and fighting for their place in society. For instance, the provincial government will now be providing spousal benefits to same-sex couples following a landmark ruling this summer. People who step out of the closet have l
a large impact on those around them. Coming out to someone is the most effective way. to encourage them to rethink their attitudes about homosexuality. Ideas for coming out: - Wear a T-shirt which identifies you as gay or lesbian - Come out to your family or friends - Write a letter to your MP/MPP supporting lesbian and gay issues - Make a commitment to tell the truth about who you are - Put on a gay/lesbian rights button - Confront anyone who makes a bigoted joke - Read a gay/lesbian paper in a public place - Wear a pink triangle - Send flowers to someone special using your real name - Invite gay and non-gay friends to the same parties - Attend a lesbian/gay community event If you are in a relationship with someone of the same sex you might: - Display their photo in a visible location - Open a joint bank account - Shop together for rnatcl$ng rings - Include them in family gatherings The important thing is to take one step further irk your coming out process. GLLOW, the campus gay and lesbian association organizes discussion groups, coffeehouses, special events, and political actims. Call 8844XOW for information.

Wealth. and Christianitv by Garth Fmzer

As university students, we generally believe that the first topic doesn’t relate to us, and for a large percentage of us, neither does the second. However, even as students, wealth m i g h t h a v e s o m e t h i n g t o d o w i t h us, And since Christ spoke frequently about the topic, it is central to the Christian message, even , though churches today have a difficult time dealing with the topic.

The Waterloo badminton team found success at the University of Western Ontario in L,ondon two weekends ago. The team’s shut-out of the Guelph Gryphons and some close wins over the M&laster Marauders start off a very optimistic season for the badminton team, Although the Western hosts failed in hospitality by virtually cleaning up the tournament, Waterloo’s team finished with an impressive record, shutting out the entire Guelph team. All Warriors posted easy wins over Guelph in all events. In singles,rookieDanFrankfinishedwith a 3-O record, holding Waterloo’s only singles match win over Westem. Neville Stringer went 2-1, losing to the strong Western team. Both doubles teams, Dan McIver /Neville Stringer and Dan Frank/Kelly Slough, ended up 2-1, with the sole loss, again to Western The Athenas had similar problems with Western. McMaster, their main rivals, gave a long but impressive showdown and eventually came out on top after several marathon matches. All women posted decisive victories over Guelph. In the mixed doubles event, the team
of Nick Hoh/Doreen Leo captured first place. in the league by advancing by default over McMaster and then defeating Western and Guelph. Coach Jeff White is pleased with the team% result, but is convinced they can do better. “I think if we could just improve some fundamental movement skills, we should overcome Mac in the next tourney,” White said. “I’ll admit the Western team is practically untouchable this season, with every team member a past national champion, but a few matches were really close and we should be able to beat them next time.” Assistant coach Brian Biemann agrees. “I noticed a lot of laziness on the court over the weekend, but I attribute that mostly to a lack of endurance conditioning,” Biemann. “We had a lot of touch competition from Western - their players are all in tip-top condition. I’m still working on setting a good aerobic base for the team, and it should work out by our next week in Hamilton.” The team travels to Hamilton on the weekend of October 24 for a tournament at McMaster, competing against Toronto, Ottawa, Queen’s, Ryerson, and York. White expects easy wins over Ottawa, Ryerson, and York and close games with Toronto and Queen’s.
It was deja vu, all over again. Waterloo 3, Guelph 5. For the second year in a row, Waterloo was defeated at both ends of a home-and-home match-up versus Guelph. Some line-up changes were made in hopes of revitalizing the slumping rugby Warriors. Among the forwards, Dean Percy was moved from hooker to fill the more glorious position of open-side flanker.Theopeningathookergave rookie Steve Humphries a chance to play at the varsity level, and an energized Ashley -Richards was named to take over duties at the other flanking position.

A Guelph kick towards the wing occupied by an inexperienced Jason Diamond resulted in a dropped ball. Numerous Warrior players were in the area to help the rookie, but the ball eluded Waterloo hands.

Soccer Warriors drop. one to rival Gryphons by Neil Duniel Impfht sports
Last Thursday, October 8 in Guelph saw the Waterloo Warrior soccer team lose 1-O to the thirdplace Gryphons, who battled with Waterloo earlier in the season to a I1 tie. As the Warriorstook t0
saves by rookie UW goalie Abdel Plummer, Guelph would have easily added to their tally. T h e W a t e r l o o side,played well in working the ball up through the midfield, but were unable to pose a serious threat as they were shut out by the Gryphon goalkeeper. ’ T h e lo s s leaves Waterloo tied for fifthinthe OUAA wet division, four points b a c k f r o m d i v i s i o n - l e a d & g Brock, Wilfrid Laurier, a n d G u e l p h , w h o each have ten points.

field, t h e y w e r e only two points behind Guelph with a game in hand. The Warriors were dominant from the beginning and clearly outplayed the Gryphons for the majority of the game. The deciding factor, though, was the scoring opportunities as Guelph managed to hit the post twice and score once on a spectacular d i v i n g h e a d e r . if not for some miraculous
Both games are at

Rugby Warr~iors drop one continued from page 14 defense. The Waterloo backs could not get around and exploit the Gryphon wings. The Guelph full-back also played exceptionally on defense, and caught every ball lofted his way w h e n Edson C a s t i l h o s o u g h t t o g o over the opposing line of backs. Gryphon forwards also kept the Warrior attacks unbalanced by spoiling Waterloo’s set plays. Frequent penalties for various infractions by the Guelph forward pack did not materialize into scori n g o p p o r t u n i t i e s a s ,the W a r r i o r s were kept out of range of the goal posts. The second half ended at the shockingly low score of Waterloo 3, Guelph 5. In the second game the War& or’s junior varsity team was hoping tobeattheGryphonssecondsagain, but losses of skilled players to illness and to replace injured varsity members has left them decidedly weaker than they were in the previous encounter. The junior Warriors started slowandanearlyGuelphrunscored in the Waterloo corner for a quick 50 Gryphon lead. Stronger Waterloo play from the kick-off then created a forceful drive in response that was capped with a powerful effort by John Straumann to score a tryThe conversion was kicked by A n g u s Y e u n g t o g i v e t0,J.V. t e a m a 7-5 lead that became very shortlived. Guelph played hard and injuries to Warriors forced rookie replacements into positions were they had very little or no previous playing experience. The Gryphon’s seconds scored a try and converted it
to take a lead of 12-7 into the halftime break. A s p l a y r e s u m e d , a n o t h e r WaJerloo injury created more weakness in the replaced Waterloo wings that Guelph soon made use of. A third Gryphon try extended the score to a 17-7 margin. The neversay-dieattitude of the Warrior team the.nshonethroughasGerardLynch got loose to score a try that closed
the gap to 12-17. Individual effort from the junior-warriors was still being put out, but as the half progressed, the team was susceptible in some key positions where the over-matched replacements got beaten cleanly two more times. Guelph finished with a pair of tries to leave the final score in the second’s game at Waterloo 12, Guelph 29.

Tuesday’s sold-out Screaming Trees show at Lee’s Palace on Bloor St. in Toronto was also notable for the Toronto debut of the openers, Lu.na2. That band is the brainchild
of &an Wareham, who spent three or four years as the frontmartfor the critically-acclairnedguitarpopband Galaxie 500. Before going onstage, Wareham was able to spare a few minutes for a quick interview. Born in New Zealand, Warehammoved to Australiaat the age of seven, and then to New York at the age of fourteen. With b a s s i s t Naomi Yang and drummer Damon K r u k o w s k i , War&am founded the Boston-based guitar-poppers
Galaxie 500. They released three albums and garnered raves f r o m the alternative press, before Wareham finally quit the group last year. Rumour has it there is no love lost between Wareham and -his former rhythmsection,but inspeaking of the breakup he says it was “nothing very exciting, really, Ijust left. I’d been thinking about it for a lang time, it wasn:t a spur of the moment sort of end-of-tour.. type thing. I was... finding it hard to get to sleep every night for about a year before I quit-- I’d been dreaming about it, so I just did it.” Downplaying any sense of personal friction, Wareham shrugs. “Bands always break up, it’s just what theydo, I guess. We were sort of getting,along all right, but under math it there were sort of frustmtions. It was a trio, which is even more difficult, and it was a trio where the other two were a couple, which is an even more tricky situaiim Y o u j u s t k n e w t h a t s o m e t h i n g was gonna explode. It’s not anyone’s fault, it’s just hard to have couples in bands.” OneofthefirstthingsWareham did following his departure was release a solo single-- featuring two songs, “An&the&a” and “I Can’t Wait”, that would later turn up on the debut Luna2 album- o n a t i n y indie label. However, he says he never intended to embark on’ a strictly solo career. “It’s just that I had these demos and I needed to finance them so I sold a solo single for a couple thousand dollars, I
Screaming Trees Lee’s Palace, Toronto Tuesday, October 13th by Derek Weller Imprint staff
It’s highly unlikely that the screaming, sellout crowd at Lee’s Palace last Tuesday would have happened before Nirvana, before Pearl Jam- before Seattle. The&eamingTrees,atalented Washington State band, arguably peaked on their 1989 album Buzz Fuctoryc a marriage of guitar fury and melodic p o p .

Sheer imposing presence. GuitaristGaryLeeConnerandbassist Van Conner both aspire to Tadlike girth, and hide their faces behind huge lanky mops of hair.

-in subtlety they make up for in, um, obviousness,andthiswasmorethan enough to keep the mash pit deliriously happy. Highlights of the Trees’ set included “Where the Twain Shall Meet,” “Bed of Roses” and the great new single “Nearly Lost You” (which is cu&d from their current album Sweef Oblitin andalsofe~turedontheShzgks film soundtrack).

made the demos just w i t h a c o u p l e different drummers. So Ihad signed the deal to (major label) Elektra on m y o w n a n d then I put a band tog e t h e r . T h e y did want me to call it Dean War&m but I wouldn’t do that. There’s too ‘much of that.” The band that Wareharn put together consisted of his friend Justin HaMrood, t h e f o r m e r C h i l l s bassist whom Wareham had met when Galaxie 500 toured England and ended up borrowing some o f the Chills’ equipment. Stanley &me&i, o n e t i m e d r u m m e r f o r t h e veterans the Feelies, w h o b r o k e u p earlier this yearc “came on a few m o n t h s l a t e r . W e ’ d been w o r k i n g with another d rummer and we w e r e n ’ t h a p p y , and we’d heard the Fe&es b r o k e u p . ” O r i g i n a l l y , .the new band was to be called simply Luna, but the (silent) integer was added for “a bit of legal protection... we had to put that two on there cause there’s some singer in New York that calls himself Luna.” On Tuesday, the group was playing&e s e v e n t h s t r a i g h t n i g h t ofafive-weekNorthA.mericantour; they’vealreadytouredEnglandJust before the tour, they added a setond guitarist, a London, Ontario native named Shawn Eden. They found him by placing an ad in the N Y C w e e k l y T h e V i l l a g e V o i c e and “sifting through all the idiots.” The addition of a second guitarist realizes a longtime ambition for wareham: I always thought we needed another g u i t a r (in Gal&e 500) and the o t h e r t w o d i d n ’ t w a n t to add it. I thought it would be good musically and healthy for the dynamic of the group a s well.” Asked if the new band is music a l l y capable of things that Galaxie 500 wasn’t, Wareham replies irk s t a n t l y “Absolutely.” When asked if there’s anything he misses about his former rhythm section, he shrugs. “It just comes out differently. It’s not like Stanley couldn’t play~eDamon,it’sthathedoesn’t. And Justin plays a-completely different style of bass- more of an attack than Naomi did,” War&am seems quite proud of Luna2, saying “ i t ’ s b e c o m i n g a whole unit,” and reaffirming his desire to continue working with the same band. Later on, he mentions that Justin will hopefully even contribute songwriting for future Luna2 releases. F o r Lunupark, the debut album for the new, band (released last month) they worked withproducer Fred Maher. All three of Galaxie 500’s LPs had been produced by ShimmyDisc Records impresario and l e g e n d a r y p r o d u c e r K r a m e r . Asked to compare the two producers, War&am said “I enjoyed working with Fred but I love working with Kramer too. Kramer wouldn’t have had the patitice to make this record, to take like five weeks and spend the time that we spent on it. But he contributed a Hammond organ solo (on “We’re Both Confused”) and I was glad he did that.” Asked if he prefers life life on a major label to that on an indie like Rough Trade (who released the Galaxie catalogue and have since pxe belly-up), Wartsham admits
“there’s good things about it. They can get you radio play that Rough Trade couldn’t do. The presS has

“Myheart does not know from logic.” Ain’t it the truth? Maybe Woody Allen’s personal life makes Roman Polanski look like St. Francis of Ass&i. It’s also possible Mia Farrow modelled her mothering behaviours on Joan Crawford. Could be. Who knows? Soon-X might actually be a genius for her age, especially since no one knows exactly how old she is. The terrible injustice of it all is that the truth, yet to be approximated in the courts, is not relevant to Husbands and Wives. Allen’s new film is true in the way that good fictionis always truer than fact. It’s touching, delicate, sexy, wise, full of wonder and full of pain. Perhaps Allen doesn’t deserve to have accomplished so much with it. His art does not bow from logic. AlthoughAllencontinuallyassemhles excellent casts, this one

seems more resonant than usual. The unstopppable Judy -Davis is the opinionated, sophisticated Sally, and Sydney Pollack, the di-
rector of such varied films as Tu~tsie, Out of Africa, and Havana, is her husband Jack. Near the beginning, of the movie, Jack and Sally announce their separation to friends Gabe and Judy Roth (Allenand Farrow). Judy is “shattered” by their decision, and it is not long before we learn that she and Gabe are having their own marital difficulties. While Sally and Jack wage iridividual campaigns on the dating front, Judy and Gabe become further entangled, grow further apart. Judy introduces Sally to Michael (LiandVeeson),acofleagueshe herself has a crush on. Meanwhile, Gabe is becoming intrigued with an unusual student in his university writing class: a well-read young woman named Rain, played by Julie,tte Lewis. Allen is mulling over the old obsessionsintheseoverlappingstories, yet this film is a synthesis of his best recent work: Hannah and and her Sisters, Crimes Misdemeanors, and what he may have been aiming for with September. There are the typical jokes that no-one
can write with such
guileless pizazz: Rain’s short story, “Oral Sex and Deconstruction”; Gabe’s fears, kissing her in a thunderstorm, that he’ll be hit by light-
ning; and Sally’s dating etiquette, “your driving was fine-for the most part.” . There are fabulously memorable scenes: a hilarious cunnilingus flashback, a time lapse montage of Rain sweetly criticizing Gabe’s novel, and a brave, horrific passage in which Jack, ashamed of himself, takes it out on his ditzy girlfriend with a sudden outburst.of abuse. Infatuated with Rain, Gabecan hear”$50,000 worth of therapycalling 911.” Nonetheless, Husbands and Wives explores the texture of ~relaticmships so astutely and intimately,-it could be the child of psychotherapy. It is shot under the guise of a documentary, with interviews to an off-screen listener or psychiatrist. However, much of what we see, we shouldn’t. Flashbacks? Cunnilingus? A hidden camera, maybe. There are no solutions. One of themost devastating achievements of the film is the series of spiralling argumentsbetweenGabeand Judy. Not because they reflect Woody and Mia, if they do, but because the
meticulous dialogue feels like a social document. As the doctor on China Beach asked: “Men, women, love, sex, who can figure it?”

If Bushes were trees then trees would be forests continued from page 19 been good but then we always had good press in Galaxie 500 too. In general, it’s a lot more stressful, actually. I mean, it’s good that every town you go to there’s someone from the record company but then there’s always shit for you to do, like interviews and stuff (a guilty shrug from me at this point). So it’s good but it’s more time-consuming as well.” “Anesihesia,” the superb single from Lunapark, is indeed getting airplay, and the group has just completed a video for “Slash Your Tires.” As Wareham says, it’s now up to Elektra to point the group toward mass success. Does Warehamenvisionbecominghuge? “Who knows, I dunno+ I don’t really see where this record fits in right now with the alternative marketplace. I don’t really think of it as b e i n g l i k e a family of alternative bands ‘cause y’know, I hate most of those bands anyway. I got my own sort of tradition of bands that I like: the Velvets; Television; the Feelies; the DreamSyndicate; the 13thFloor
Elevators. So that’s what concerns me, not Paerl Jam and R.E.M.” W h e n p r e s s e d , Wareham does admit to digging a few current bands: Codeine; Spiritualized; the Pastels’ work with Jad Fair (Wareham may be playing on the next Patels record). As for his New Z e a l a n d o r i g i n s , Wareham admits to liking the Clean, the Bats (the first album) and the Chills (“for singles more than albums”). However, “I don’t, like, love everything that comes out on Flying Nun, and it’s not an influence on me.” Covers that Luna2 has been doing live include the Temptations’ “Just MQmagination,” the Velvets’ “RideIntotheSun,“theDreamSyndicate’s “That’s What You Always Say” and Beat Happening’s “Indian Summer.“Thelastsong--whichhas also been done up by Captain America-- was recorded by War&am for a fanzing flcxi two y e a r s a g o ; Luna2 have recently recorded it in the studio as well. As for Galaxie Sob’s influence on other bands (the Jazz Butcher, for one, has been known to cover “Tugboat” live), Wareham’s head
remains resolutely unswelled. “Generally, bands who are influenced by Galaxie 500 are sort of lame, actually. They get too into the sappy thing instead of the guitar thing, y%n0w?” Wareham’s parting comments serve as both a hopeful glance to the future and an angry look back at the past. When asked if he’s enjoying h i s n e w b a n d , he says “We’re all getting along, it’s fun’ we’re having a good time. Which is really important. There’s no point in going out there and spending twenty-four hours a day with people you don’t wanna look at, Bands do it all the time.” If there w a s o n e p r o b l e m w i t h Lun$‘s set at Lee’s, it’s that it was all too short. This, of course, was pretty much -voidable, considering their position as support act to the (suddedy hip and trendy, a p p a r e n t l y ) S c r e a m i n g T r e e s . VVha t Wareham and his band did do, though, was simply superb, even if the crowd of gnhgeophiles for the most part didn’t understand it. The set list was drawn almost exclusively from the Lunapark al-
bum, beginning with “Slide” ‘and “Crazy People.” The band worked surprisingly welllive:
Demeski revealed just h o w p o w e r ful and seamless they are as a rhythm section, and the addition of Eden on second guitar resulted in full-bodied sound. Musically, Luna2 is still fairly languid and laid-back, as moments like “Hey Sister” will attest. However, for theone-two punchof “Time to Quit” and “I Can’t Wait”- with Wareham, Harwood and Demeski furiously pounding their instrumen ts- they proved themselves capableof a white-hotintensitythat Galaxie 500 could never have
. reached. They finsihed the set proper with a long, dramatic version of the Beat Happening tune, then returned briefly to dust off the Galaxie 500 gem “When WillYou Come Home.” Despite stellar performances, though, Luna2 were largely unable to capture the interest of the crowd, who were heard to mutter “Why don’t they rock harder?” or “Why doesn’t he scream more?” Wareham’s assessment that he doesn’t “fit in” with the current alternative market was shown to be a correct one. And that is a Shame, because Dean Wareham is worth ten Pearl Jams.

KVFDM KONTEST LOSERSAn ove&dning response to the Imprint Arts KMFDM Kontest has resulted in an impending psychological irtqu& to determine the abject mentality of a sorry ass student population. After hours of heated delikration, our esteemed panel of judges have chosen 5 truly dismal (dare we say} people to be dwarded the dubious title of “Waterlosers.” Each of these dolts will be given a pair of tickets to the forthcoming KMFDM show at Fed Hall. The reason we decided to divy the tickets up in pairs is not to encourage the five to procure dates, but instead to allow each of them to enjoy the show twice as much by entering the venue, leaving and entering again. The award of “Waterloser Extmordinaire” has been presented to Craig Nickerson for the ww entry reprinted below. All winners/losers are asked to cokct their tickets at the Imprint beiore 7 PM --Monday, October 19. Of course if they truly are the Waterlosers they aspire to be, Tuesday morning will do just fine.

Maxwell’s interviews with the five villagers are granted at different times of the day, and for one hour only -- why? It just doesn’t say. Also, Reeve Blair’s curious lack of speculation about the mystery is odd, considering he’s supposed to figure it all out, and remains a mystery itself. (His many anecdotes about his love life are equally baffling.) Also unlike Paradise Motel, which dwells solely on a grotesque and fabulous (if somewhat empty) series of events, The Mvsterium tries to look behind the grotesqueries and fiid the motives behind them.. and I canFt say that the search is entirely sucessful.

different bands, sixteendifferent DK tunes. It’s that simple. You see, Dead Kennedys disbanded some five or six years ago and I slipped heavily into mouming. Dead Kennedys had been my childhood, an era that’s no more. No vocalist could ever again come close to Jello Biafra’s exaggerated vibrato or brilliantly sarcastic but educated lyrics, nor could any gui-
tar be in rough enough shape to sound like that of East Bay Ray’s. So it’s lucky that none of the 16 bands on “Virus 100” tied to duplicate the originals. Just the energy and spirit remain. Sepultura, a deathcore band from Brazil (what?), growls a version of “Drug Me” that’s so fast it’ll give you a backache. And even better, Napalm Death cares enough about the message to redo “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” at similar breakneck speed, NoMeansNo does a great version of “Forward to Death” with “The NoMeansNo All Boys Choir” as their only back-up. Guitar, drums et al.: all strummed on the chords of the vocal box. And if you’re looking for an injection of the ultra-funky, check out Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy’s version of ‘California Uber Alles”: ‘I’m your governor Pete Wilson ya know / the baddest governor toever grab a tic and go/ Boom!’ Sure the lyrics have been changed; but the track works well as a sign of the times, complete with a sample of Jello’s voice singing the chorus. These and almost every trackfrom’%rus100”getsthe@nt across with the same intense energy as the original. Maybe even a little more. There’sonlyonefauItwiththis great collection, and it’s a littIe abstract at that. It could’ve and even should’ve been a lot longer, especially since 12 of the 16 songs were taken from either Give Me Cottvenknee or Fresh Fktjbr Rutting Vegetizbles. So how about Slayer doing “Terminal P..eppie,” Rollins Band doing “Riot,” and D.RI. cranking out “Chickenshit Conformist”? No doubt Ice T has developed enough problems with Tipper Gore and friends to do justice to ‘Moral Majority.” And so on. How about “virus lOl”3 _ -
Have you noticed that the french fries at the A&W taste a little bit strange? Don’t be alarmed. It’s because “Virus 100,” a celebration of the independent AltemativeTentacles label’s 100th release, has hit the streets. And though the label claims that its intentions were originally different, the album presents itself in the form of a tribute to the late great Dead Kennedys. Sixteen
11 minutes to do it, Good-bye vocals. Good-bye tension. Apparently, original Joke member Youth (now big time remixer) is behind another EP of mixes. Watch for it or don’t. Murder Inc., the Jaz-less remains of the last incarnation of Killing Joke, include Revolting Cock Chris Connelly as vocalist and . . . are a dire proposition. If they were infactacorporation,I’msurethey’d be completely unable of carrying out any agenda, regardless how menacingly named. “Who’re we goruba murder?” “Dunn0 . . . anyone, everyone. cc “Yeah!” “Ultra-violence!, ultra-violence!” “O.k., go ahead.” “I don’t wanna do it, you do it.” “Me!?” etc, The self-titled debut LP is a turgid miasma of grunge-layered crap vocals. Qf nine tracks, only “Red Black” even hints at the actual su~tance~~dtheircollectivepromotional resumes. Recorded by Steve Albini - big deal, perhaps they’ll mercy-kill themselves. Geordie recently said: ‘When I heard Chris sing I thought, my God, it’s the ghost of Scott Walker!” Discern for yourself the difference between his ‘ghosts” and J&s. Troubled times indeed for Killing Joke fans. Was Brighter Than A 77wl,ssand Suns or Outside The Gate really more embarrassing than this? P.S. the fabled Killing Joke curse has forced Murder Inc. to postpone their upcoming tour which would have brought them to Toronto’s Opera House on 0ctober 27.

Manchester’s The Fall have had a long and illustrious career as one of the few bands subject to little or no hatred from pop music critics. Having been around for almost 15 years, that’s a fairly impressive achievement. For anyone willing to put up with the dissonant screeching and uncompromising lyrics, The Fall, epitomized by lead singer Mark E. Smith-uh, provides the listener with one of the best, and most influential bands of the ’80s. A conceptual leap from la!t y e a r ’ s Sh#Work, Code: SeZph takes the tracks that were left on the cutting room floor from their. last sessions, filter them through a juice tiger and spit them on to this album. Songs like “Birm i n g h a m S c h o o l o f B u s i n e s s S c h o o l ” a r e the result, loud aggressive tracks with something to say. There isn’t a whole lot of intellectualizing going on here. On tracks like “Return,” the constant use of the phrase “also sprach Zarathustra” does more than show that Mark E. Smith-uh knows who Nietzsche is. His sarcastic invocation of Nietzsche’s mythical hero is a sarcasm few modern music writers achieve. But the loud thrashiness isn’t all there is to the Fall, tracks like “Time Enough at Last” demonstrate Stith’s m o r e p o e t i c s i d e . T h e harder stuff like “Everything Hurtz” illustrates the Fall at their best, rivalling anything t h e y ’ v e d o n e b e f o r e , i n c l u d i n g t h e i r best’album so far m Wotlderful Frightening World of The Fall. The deeper the rest of Manchester slides into the quagmire of Raving lunacy, the more we need people like Mark Smith-uh and the more we need bands like The Fall.
Whither Particle Man? Now if you confronted me and asked me why I was bothering to review this thing about a decade after its release, you’d probably say something,like “I bet it’s time for a record auction and you’re catching up on all the stuff y o u were s u p p o s e d to r e v i e w o v e r thesummer.” Now even if (I said if) you were right, I’d still deny it. In fact, the story is that because They Might Be Giants’ latest release is so quirky, wacky, nutty if you will, it took some time to actually absorb it and give a realistic account of all the elements that make it the album it is. Fucked up. That’s whsit it is. Not being amember of the TMBG’s fan club even remotelyl I can say with full conviction and u n e q u i v o c a l l y t h a t m y e m o t i o n s to this album are definitely noncommital. Ha ha. I just don’t get the infatuation people have with these guys. Sortoffunny,buttheystillfallpreytothe problem with all joke bands, once you tell the joke, you laugh, but you don’t keep laughing over and over if the same person keeps telling you the joke. Not that the zany lyrics are all this album has, musically, it’s pretty safe to say that They Might Be Budgeted. A nice clear sound that doesn’t try to overpower the lyrics lays a solid base for the Johns’ lyrics. The budget these guys have also allows them to extend their craziness into the realm of CD manipulation. There are 38 tracks on this album, but tracks 17 t o 37 are random sound samples a .few s e c o n d s l o n g s u p p o s edly programmed to randomly insert themselves before songs. Cool.
I must admit I was looking for this album to turn me on to this band.- I don’t really like “Don’t Let’s Start,” but both “Particle Man” and “Istanbul Not Constantinople” are fantastically hillarious songs. (okay, sometimes y & laugh at the s&e ioke%ver and
over again). TMBG simply seem to have run out of ideas. If they can get them back, great, but if not there’s no way I could recommend the band based on this CD. , They Might Be Mediocre (YOU Might Be Smarmy ia ed.).

In artistic and-intellectual terms as well as o v e r a l l sound, industrial music is miles from the purpose and sound of

On “Who are You,” the band imitates Skinny Puppy, while early Ministry is the frame of reference for the track “Scratch.” The .album’s highlight is’ the rousing “Fuck You” chant in the song “Aggress. ” “Turn the Screw,” the final track (before five remixes) proves that rhyming for the sake of r h y m i n g w i l l m e r e l y a l e r t the listener to the inanity of the lyrics.

Mars displays the same ragged, guitarbased tunefulness that distin@shed that record. Like his old bandmates, he manages to work his ’70s infIuences into an appealing whole that still sounds f r e s h a n d n e w ( g r o u p s l i k e Pearl Jam are still catching up). Hmesh and Hand Grenades is full of lightweight, poppy - - _melodies that grow on the listener immensely, not unlike the fine new Lemonheads record. What Mars lacks is Westerberg’s emotional depth. Mars displays little of theangst that went with Paul Westerberg‘s position “outside- of society.‘, While Westerberg‘s vocals and lyrics were both instantly recognizable as the marks of a lonely soul, that is not the case here.

Half a decade in the making and was it ever not worth the wait. Former Pink Floyd bassist/ lyricist Roger Waters has created a sonic F r a n k e n s t e i n . A m u s e d to Death is a chaotic hodgepodge of chirping crickets, barking dogs and ringing sleigh-bells all brought to a grotesque parody of life by the unnatural science of Q-sound. Run! Hide! Okay, those familiar with Waters’ past work might not be put off -by this sort of thing. Remember when he was in Pink Floyd and there were all those cool clocks at the beginnhg of “Time”? That was awesome. And, remember when he had all that radio banter between. the tracks on Radio K&OS that kind of helped to tell a story? That was awesome. But this time Waters has gone mad I tell you! This album reminds me of that scene in Fantasia where Mickey Mouse looses control of all those brooms and buckets and things And long! Boy, is this album long! I think it might actually be l o n g e r t h a n m I&U, maybe even longer than the Great Wall! Ha ha! Of China! Ha ha! But seriously, I believe that the reason for Waters’ grievous over-use of Q-sound effects is two-fold. First, he is like a
kid in a candy store, unable to get enough of all this m2lrvellous studio technology. Second, he is trying to distract us from the music and lyrics that make up the other half of the album and which are truly awtill. Waters is the reigning king of art-rock concept albums and the concept behind Amused fo Dmth is gargantuan as is befitting His Majesty’s ego. It has something to do with God, evolu tim, the global community, television, and man’s inhumanity to man. I think. The trouble is that it is difficult to figure out what it is that Waters is ranting on about. Take the song “What God Wants Part II/ f o r i n stance.

m e n t a l i s m o r s o m e s u c h l e f t i s t bugaboo.‘Or maybe it’s an angry indictment against the Big Man Himself inthetraditionofXTC’s”DearGod.” Maybe it’s both these things all at once. You can tell that it is very important by Waters’ heartfelt, shriek like vocals. But the lyrics are like a shopping list for God. “God wants gigolos/God wants giraffes.” It seems what God wants are some intelligent lyrics. ~ I am convinced that Waters has lost his mind. I had myfirst suspicions about this when he had Cyndi Lauper butcher “Another Brick In Wall Part 11” on that god-awful live album he put out, but now I am convinced. Where is Syd Barret when you need him?
presents a completely mainstream view about the need for curbing the use of guns, the lack of safety in America etc. etc. But why tell this to the people who would buy this album? I’m making some assumptions here about what age group is going to buy this album, but I don’t i m a g i n e t o o m a n y c o n g r e s s m e n are going to be picking up this EP. Anyt h i n g i n t e r e s t i n g that could’ve been said about guns was said by Negativland e a r l i e r t h i s y e a r w i t h “Gilns.” The bottom line is this: Politics and music can mix.’ The Dead Kennedys seem to exemplify this type of mixture that makes sense. “California Uber Alles,” sure. “Holiday in Cambodia,” great. ‘Tool and Die,” no thank you. I’m not trying to dei9 dead punk groups, but Consolidated just have nothing new to add. to their topics. The lines of verse are presented w i t h o u t a n y o r i g i n a l s t y l e , no real rhyme, none of the allure of rap, . It% just there in your face without any musical talent evident whatsoever. Not only is it bad music/rap, whatever, it’s illogical. The fight against government fascism is aided in no way (as far as I can see) by providing said government with a monopoly of deadly force. Let George Bush or Bill Clinton or Brian Mulroney have the only real power over guns - no thanks. As ugly as it may seem, the right to bear arms is a right to protectoneselfagainstbadgovemmen~ To raise a militia if need be against either an internal or external threat. As unlikely as this may seem, it is the principle of individual liberty that is at stake here, and Consolcidated, whether or not they realizeit are advocating the intrusion of this liberty by the government. This just doesn’t cut it. Consolidated will no doubt gain more and more fame as the White Politi-
Is this the best single I’ve heard allyear?Itcouldjustbeanditwould come as no surprise if Tar end up with more hype than a band from Seattle that begins with N when their next LP comes out. Hailing from Chicago (please no references to Steve A.), Tar know how to deliver power fucking chords like ny p h y t e m i d w i v e s p e r f o r m i n g their first breech birth. Yeah, not a pleasant sight and it’s not a pleasant. sound, but if you’re looking for pleasant sounds, stay away from Minor Threat, Big Black (sorry), and 1 Killdozer. Comparisons may be useless (andsomightrecordreviews)when it comes to Tar but I’ve played this
single five, er, six times since I found it today. Just in case you’re wonderin’, yes the B-side is a cover of Roxy Music. R e v i e w i n g i n d e pendent 45s in a university paper rarely does bands any good, but if there’s one band that deserves the effort, it’s this thick, black sticky foursome. F i n d a r e c o r d by these guys and buy it now. If anything they’ve done sounds anything like t h i s , it’s b e w e l l w o r t h t h e m o n e y . What else are you going to spend it o n ? Video games or a goddamn Tshirt? Take a risk for god’s sake. They’re infectious more than anything else and that comes only from hard work, ori@naIity and &ill. Heavy but not like Tad heavy.

Having expounded upon most of my problems with Consolidated in last week’s review of Play Mare Music, I suppose I owe theband and Nettwerk a review of the album as m album rather than as a p r o d u c t (although were Mark, Adam and Philip not in Consolidated, I doubt they would extend the same
tesy). T h i s t r a c k s o n t h i s El? and the album as a whole are an improvement, and in fact quite a union (no pun intended) of their first two LPs.
While the first album The Myth of Rock layed down tar heavy beats and a bass track heavier than the battleship Potemkin, it provided little or no lyrical content on many of its tracks such as “White American Male” or “Consolidated.” “This is a Collective” pretty much summed up the album (and the band’s career to date as far as I’m concerned). Friendly Fascism presented the consumer with much spoken word, but very little new to say. Nobody likes preachers, whether they’re telling us they’ve been touched by the hand of god or Karl Marx. There was basically no reason for Frimd!y Fascism to have been an album. It’s message - which was the only contribution it made to anything, musically it was a pretty dank void - has been presented b e f o r e i n a m u c h more effective way. As far as “Tool and Die” is concerned, a track about guns and gun control is of no use to anyone who would buy the album. It
