And that, according to the sports director for the Hong Kong Students’ Association, is just too bad. Although it only started last Friday, the association’s basketball tournament ran into controversy almost immediately. Jason Truong was told that Friday that his team, ‘The Untouchables,” was not allowed to have nonAsians. Truong had three white students in a team of ten; the rest were oriental. Jimmie Liu, the association’s sports director, called Truong claiming that there were complaints from other teams about white players being an unfair advantage,and he asked Truong to remove them from the roster. Truong claims that he had asked Liu specifically before the tournament if whites were allowed to play, and had received a positive answer.

The president of the Hong Kong Student Association, Kelvin Lai, defended Liu’s actions, claiming that “white players are probably big guys,” and that the association “wanted [the tournament] for Asian size.” He stressedthat the key issue was the relative size of the players, and was surprised that whites might have been allowed to play at all, Liu denies the tournament was ever open to whites, and said he “clearly stated that the games are clearly for . . .

Zavitz staff

0, the government coffers are a little empty. No money for the unemployed or the overcclr~catcd. Budget cuts a plenty. But wait, what’s this....‘? The Ministry ofTransportation in Ontario (MTO) is looking to build a $90 million cxprcssway between Kitchenerand Gucl‘ph. Nice trade off. WC can’t afford to go to school but we get plenty of short-term construction jobs to help fill the void. Is this freeway a student issue? Yes, I think so. Skewed priorities betray an incoherent vision that allow govcrnmcnts to make decisions witI]out examining their context. Don’t be misled, this freeway will cost you over $200 a year. That is a student issue. Now I don’t mean to imply that anyone is going to show up at your door to collect a $200 levy or anything quite that obvious. What I’m trying to point out is that by failing to object to government wastefulncss we lose an opportunity to redirect these funds into our bcsiegcd social programs. As our education system is attacked, WC have one less defcnsc. The figures are actually quite disturbing. The MT0 justifies the need for this freeway by saying that the existing highway seven has a daily one-way vehicular capacity 01‘20,000 cm. They also claim that on commuting days, the highway currently handles about 600 too many cars. However, this is sotncwhat misleading. What is really important is how many cars are on the road at peak times. The MT0 says that the maximum hourly rate for a two-lane highway is 1400 cars. IVesently, the peak hourly rate hits a maxitnutn level of 1232 for a fifteen minute period between 7:30 and 7:45 am. By 8:50, this rate falls off to about 900. These figuresare similar to the slightly less intense cvcning rush, and outside of these two bursts usage remains around 500 cars an hour. At no point does the highway come close to the maximum hourly rate.

Now consider this. The MT0 states that highway seven carries 15 1,200 too many cars over the 252 commuting days that exist each year. The annual interest on $90 million dollars at eight per cent a year (a conservative figure) is $7.2 million. Divide this by the 35,743 full time students at Waterloo, Laurier and Guelph and you get a final total of $201.44 per student. Our government could invest $200 towards each of our educations every year, or build a road to handIe the overflow of 600 cars a day. This doesn’t include the cost of salting, snow removal, lighting, grass cutting, periodic maintenance or any costs in excess of the initial government estimate. Nor does it include the social costsofdisplaced residences and businesses, lost agricultural land and extensive environmental damage. All ofthis to get

This freeway will cost you over $200 a year commuters to Guetph two minutes yuicker. (Actually, predicted time savings is less than two minutes.) Here is another way to look at the problem. Take $7.2 million in annual interest and divide it by the 15 1,200 trips that are made in cxcess ofthe ministry’s annual guidclines. What you get is an obscene $47.62 per trip. Lets make this thing a toll highway. Think about it. It would be cheaper to pay 600 commuters $12,000 a year each to stay home. So why doesn’t the MT0 increase highway seven to four lanes‘? They have already established that this option would be $30 million cheaper and result in much less environmental degradation. Unfortunately, the MT0 predicts that in twenty years a four lane highway

would be insufficient. Funny, but when the Kitchener to Guelph freeway was first proposed in the early 1970’s, highway seven handled about 20,000 one-way car trips a day. In the last twenty years, usage has not increased. Now the ministry claims that in twenty years we will need infrastructure to handie 48,000 one-way trips between K/W and Guelph daily. This implicitly conceals a prediction that the population of Waterloo Region will increase to about one million people over this period. When the MT0 first planned this freeway they predicted a regional population in 1992 of 600,000. Whoops! (Our current population is under 400,000.) What is happening in our back yard is criminal. The govcrnmcnt is using inflated estimates and very sclcctive statistics to justify the construction of a $90 million freeway while simultaneously raping our sociaf programs to help corral our run-away debt. What the MT0 fails to fact is that “ifyou build it,theywill come.” If capacity increases, use increases. It doesn’t matter how many times they widen the 40 1; its always packed. Many studies reinforce the point. Rcalising this, could there be any connection between the announcement that tens of millions of dollars would be spent on highway construction in the Cambridge area and the confirmation that came from Toyota on the following day that it would double production at their Cambridge facility? Call me a cynic. Rcgardlcss, it is important that we as students learn to place attacks on our education system in context. Funding cutsare not inevitable dccisions based on a necessary tightening of purse strings. Investment in education is both a net social good and an important stimulus to our economy. Cuts to education funding therefore are indicative of a devaluation of the social good. Education facts cuts because our govcmmcn t expects students to rol I over and play dead. They say that current funding levels arc simply impossible to sustain. I, for one, say “hit the highway.”

ear ye! Hear ye! If you haven’t heard, the Hi ederation of Students has come up with a new way to spread news of Federation events. It’s the Town Criers, and you can see them throughout the campus. The idea originally came from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. Christine Dewhurst, Vicepresident, Operations and Finance picked it up at a conference. Right now, there’s two criers. Their job is to go around to certain high density areas almost and yell out announcements for all to hear. Hari, the female crier, never planned on this happening. She just walked into the Fed office one day to volunteer, and was told a Town Crier was what they needed. “I’m used to yelling, so I said I’li do it.” However, there was more to the job than she thought. “I thought they meant only within the campus centre, I didn’t realize they meant throughout the whole campus.” The Feds were having some

trouble finding people willing to take the job. When asked if there were many other applicants, Hari rep1 ied, “For this?” But the program has been a great success, and there is already another town crier lined up for next term. The costume consists of a pirates hat, a trenchcoat, a Federation of Students T-shirt, knickers and black tights. They cover the villages, the Davis Centrc, outside the Engineering Lecture Hall, Modem Languages and the Campus Centrc, They try to make their announcements at busy times, such as 11:ZO and 12:20, when people are moving to and from class. Doing the villagcs at - _dinner__ time, - they____“stand on top of the table and yell.” Despite the fact that it looks like so much fin, the Town Crier runs some risks in the course of fblfilling their duties. Rumour has it that when Brad started to bang his drum just after Bob Rae made his presentation of $25 million to the university, the premier’s body guards almost shot him.

As students and South Campus Hall tenants looked on, President James Downey congratulated all on the achievement. He pointed out that it took four years to reach this point. Downey descirbed the Marked contrast between the old building and the new. “We’ve gained a new building,” Downey joked, ‘land lost an opportunity to establish a wind-tunnel research centre.” Downey took shots at what he called “the dumb pillar” style of architecture, and even referred to the old South Campus Hall as “a black hole.” After Downey’s speech, the people who helped bring about the renovations gathered to cut the official ribbon. Cupcakes had been arranged on a table to spell out “SCH”, and all present were invited to take one. Throughout the ceremony, the Warrior’s Band provided mostly on-key musical entertainment.

This program targets women of colour, women refugees, immigrant women and lesbians. Why do these women get funding over others? “Women of colour and immigrant and refugee women in Ontario must often cope with racial discrimination on top of sex bias,” says the document faxed to Imprint, from the Ministry of Health. The budget for this program was increased to $1.1 million this year. Last year, $8 13,000 was spent on 5 1 successful applicants out of the 150+ who applied.

Mike Ridley, the acting University Librarian discussed the situation at Dana Porter with Imprint. “We have considered it [a security system] a number of times over the years,” says Ridley. “The typical reason we have not done it is simply cost.” Placing the metallic strips in every book would be the major

expense, according to Ridley, noting that Dana Porter has “somewhere in the neighbourhood of I .3 million titles,” which works out to “over 2 million volumes.” Additional expenses would be the detection system and a “mechanism to desensitize the books,” says Ridley, who adds that security systems are “not foolproof,” Last year, Dana Porter had its budget cut by three percent. “We’ve been experiencing budget cuts for the last number ofyears ,” points out Ridley. Ridley also recounts the manybenefitsof having personel at the doors. “We use those staff at those points for They other reasons.” provide security at night, and some of them are responsible for opening and closing the library.

Lee of Students

Well, the job of Academic Rcsk?archer is certainly not an insipid task. You might think that scrummaging through old archives and historical documents might be dull, however, when it’s the history of the Federation of Students that you are researching, the task becomes an enjoyable discovery of humorous anecdotes and hints of scandal :.. This week, however, I thought I would enlighten you with some of the original Federation of Students’ clubs that are no longer in existcncc. Glee Club (1964-65) -“The Glee club’s plans will include the opcrctta, seasonal music, and also surious music during the second term. A performance of Schubert’s Mass has been considcrod”. It appears that all the Gleeful members of the Conrad Grebel Choir have certainly maintained and perfected this society!

Student Wives Club ( 1964-65) - If knitting and needlepoint just won’t suffice, come on out for a quilting bee, or one of the many lectures on making your husband happy Well, times have ccttainly changed as the now defunct Student Wives Club has made way for the Gender Issues Commission. Laureate SocietyPossibly a precursor to the Women’s CcntrcThis club is open to all undcrgraduate women on campus. Its purpose

is to promote uhity and friendship among the women students of various faculties and colleges. Dance Band/Football Band Some of the members of the footbail band will probably form part of the dance band. This band plays modern big-band arrangcmcnts. Trumpets, trombones, saxes, etc... -Obviously this band evolved into our very own Warrior Band that we are so proud of today. As our clubs have changed, evidently, so has our sense of style.

because I thought it was a bargain, which it was. I was committed to keeping it for five years, and at the end of five years, if 3couldn’t make it work as a theatre, I could do what I wanted with the property. At the end of the fifth year, it was breaking even, and more importantly, I developed an affection for the theatre. So it’s 32 years now that we have had the RoyaI Alexandra theatre. It’s a high risk business, and very aggravating sometimes, although I was complaining for 20 years what an aggravating business it was, and then twelve years ago I bought the Old Vie theatre in London, England. The Old Vie was built in 1818. So we’ve had that for twelve years, and I hadn’t seen it when I bought it, The reason I bought it was because different actors who played our theatre, the Royal Alexander, such as Sir John Gielgud, Peter O’Toole, Sir Michael Redgrave, Sir Ralph Richardson, they’d be telling me about their early days of training at the Old Vie. So, when I heard it was up for bids, I put in an offer and wi th my rotten luck, I outbid Andrew Lloyd Webber. And, when I went over to pay them, I found out a big six storey building next door goes with the theatre, it was build in 1952, the Old Vie annex.

interview

by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff

H

onest Ed Mirvish has b’een one of Toronto’s most visible personalities for many years now. From humble beginnings, Honest Ed has now come to own the large bargain store on the corner of Bathurst and Bloor as well as several of the largest theatrcs in Toronto. Born in Virginia, Edward Mirvish moved with his family to Washington DC. when he was two years old. He lived in the nation’s capi to1 until he was nine, and for the past 7 1 ycnrs, Ed Mirvish has lived in Toronto. Mirvish had very littlc formal education. When hc was fifteen years old, he dropped out of his third year of high school and started his career in the business world. His mother, now a widow with two children, ncedcd the young Ed’s help, so Mirvish started working in tllc grocery store that his father had left behind. Although most pcoplc know Honest Ed from his large bargain shopping centre, Ed Mirvish is also a sinccrc patron of the arts. In addition to owning the Princess of Wales Thcutrc and the Royal Alexandra Thcatrc, Mirvish, along with his son David, also owns the Old Vie thcatrc in London, England, and has devoted a small section of Toronto adjoining Honest Ed’s to small independent artists. Imprint had a chance to talk with Ed Mirvish last week about his various busincsscs, and the path to his success. Tell me about your early years. you get into the retail business?

How

did See him,

The first place I worked was a grocery store. The grocery store was the store that when my dad died he left and it was always in a state of bankruptcy bccausc it was the depression years and he gave credit to the customers and they couldn’t pay. Before I got married, I went to work for a chain store, Howard Food Markets and I worked there for two years. But when I got married, I started with $214 where Honest Ed’s is today. ’ I rcntcd a little store there. I cashed my wife’s insurance policy, rented a store for $55 a month, right where Honest Ed’s is today. That was 53 years ago. Thcrc’s a sign in the corner window that says the original store was smaller than this window, but it’s grown so much over the years. When

did you buy the whole

block?

I bought the whole block maybe a year after it. The dentist who owned it died and left it to the University of Toronto and the Univcrsity of Toronto wanted $25,000 for the whole frontage and they took $5,000 down, and all of a sudden I was a landlord. I had seven tenants including a dentist, a shoe repair, a milliner and a beauty parlous. It had no depth, just I4 feet depth, but it had’1 25 feet frontage. So did you buy the whole block or just slowly, store by store?

things in different ways. I think it says a lot for the country you live in that you have an opportunity to do this. There are many places in the world no matter how hard you try you can’t get ahead, so I think the opportunities are here. One of the books that was written about me was called Business is People, and the basic philosophy was to keep things simple because I did have limited training, and to go against the trend and full7 a need. I think so many people, they see something works for somebody and they go and they imitate. But I think you have to bc creative, and there’s always needs and the thing is to fill the need, and the need at this particular time may not be

who

Well, we’re open to everybody. My wife has her sculpture studio there, she started at the beginning, she has one whole house. Our son had his art gallery on Markham street, The David Mirvish Art Gallery, Now he’s a collector and lends his art to museums. So the art gallery is now an art book store, David Mirvish Books on Art.

One of the books that was written about me was called Business is People, and the basic philosophy was to keep things simple because I did have limited training, and to go against the trend and fulfzl a need.

theatre?

Yes. He was mainly responsible for the design of that theatre and for the last seven or eight years, David is responsible for all three theatres, and the productions that go in them. For 23 years I was buying and selling the shows like any other product, from Broadway or London’s west end, but the last seven or eight years we’ve been producing our own shows because we thought the quality of the road shows was deteriorating, for whatever reason, whether it’s the economics of the theatre, or the star system where stars do not want to commit themselves to go on the road for two or three years, they would rather be free if a film comes up because it’s more lucrative and less demanding. So you own some businesses that on the surface seem that they would be very vulnerable to the recession. Has it affected you all that much? Well, there’s no question about it, the economy’s not the way it was in the early eighties. So, 10 percent of the people aren’t working, 90 percent are. But the world doesn’t come to an end. Another thing, I think the companies that suffer a great deal are the ones that have accounts receivable. Ourretail business, the restaurant, and the theatres are all cash businesses.

Well someone once asked me, “Ed, what do you want on your tombstone?” I said “I don’t like cemeteries altogether.” What I’d like is a throne set up in the middle of Honest Ed’s, and then have somebody sitting on it, and I’d be cremated and my ashes would be in an hour glass and the guy sitting in the middle of Honest Ed’s would be turning the hourglass up and down and they would be pointing to the ashes and they’d be saying “There’s Ed, he’s still running.” That’s the way I want to be remembered.

He has proposed a plan that would see $2.6 billion in federal transfer payment for post-secondary education phased out by 199697. However, he has also said that he would like to use some of the money to establish a fund now that could be used as a base for a federal student loan program. He has also agreed that OUSA would be involved in the development of such a program. The program focuses on income-contingent loans.

Nash Interview

What you’re doing is trying to provide ways to get people to be interested in, and enlightened by, current affairs and issues, and there are all kinds of ways of doing it. I stop short at the comic book ways ofthe entertainment shows masquerading as news, but I don’t think Larry King is that kind of a show. I don’t think it’s the wave of the future, or that all programs will be like that. I think that the newscast will remain the basic text for finding out what’s happening, plus documentaries of one kind or another. Barbara Frum had discussions with people not dissimilar to the kind of thing Larry King has. What I think is important, and it’s just my own nature and style, but I think what’s important in interviewing is the person you’re interviewing. 1 don’t think I as a reporter should be, in fact I musn’t be, the centre point of what’s important. What’s important is what you, the person I’m interviewing, thinks and says. You’re not there to be a star in yourself and I hate the idea of reporters being stars. It happens and it’s inevitable because of the profile you get from being on television. 1 sort of cringe, but I think there are some advantages to it.

rom 1979 to 1989, Knowlton Nash was one of the most popular faces on Canadian television. As the host of CBC’s The National, Nash was the face that millions of Canadians associated with #their nightly news. Recently, Nash published a history of the CBC, The Micvaphone Wars where he describes the story of one of Canada’s oldest institutions. From Wayne and Shuster’s early radio days to Friday Night! with Ralph Bcvmurgi, Nash’s new book gives Canadians an inside look at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. While on tour supporting his latest book, Imprint had a chance to talk with Mr. Nash about his new book, the current state of journalism and what the future holds for him.

Knowtton Nash: Peter wrote a letter, that’s right, complaining about the comments that .lohn Crisp0 made in Maclean’s in connectin with his feeling that the CBC news was putting opinion into some of its newscasts, and Peter was objecting to that statement and noting that John Crisp0 had never been down to the newsroom and ncvcr seen the process. Do you think the CBC into it’s reporting?

In terms of less than professional journalism, do you think that there’s a place for something like Frank? Oh sure, sure. I think I’d like to see Frank Magazine more like Private Eye in England -- a little more sophisticated in its writing. I think we have to be big enough to be able to make fun of ourselves and take the mickey out ofthe establishment. Just as in the book I reflected the warts of the CBC as well as the beauty marks and T think an organization has to be big enough to say ‘wc’rc not perfect, we make mistakes, we have triumphs, but we have failures as well.’

Well, no it doesn’t as a general rule and when it does creep in it’s a mistake and should bc corrcctcd. I agree totally that it is roprchcnsiblc when opinion creeps into a news story and it should be edited out or the journalist should bc reprimanded, but I don’t think it happens all that often. What far?

I think he’s done a very good job, I think he’s done a terrific job. He’s particularly good, I think, on live events, live coverage. He’s very good I think, and CBS got the worst of the deal when he didn’t go down, because I think he would have quite possibly replaced Dan Rather by now.

Magazine, Coren?

You know, this is a terrible confession, but it was only in a relatively recent period of time that he really ever swam into my purview. For some reason or another, I’ve obviously failed to notice very much, so I haven’t seen very much of him. 1 saw him the other night at a scrabble match that we had in Toronto, though and he’s pretty damn good.

so

Pretty good reaction, I must say. I’ve heard from just about every president that’s alive except GerardVellieux. I haven’t heard directly from him. All of the reactions, particularly Tony Manera’s have been interesting bccausc he said he thought these problems wcrc unique to him, and now he realizes that all the prcsidcnts have had problems not dissimilar to what he has, so it’s been a bit of a rcvclation for him. The reaction has been very good inside the CBC. I haven’t talked to Patrick Watson, but he’s talked to Peter Gzwoski and Peter Gzowski told me that he thought that Peter was unhappy because he felt that he had done more. I think hc was unhappy at some of the things that Gerard Vellicux may have said about him. I think he felt that he was underappreciated in terms of trying to do things. What I was trying to do was reflect what other people were saying about him as well as about Vcllieux as well as about everybody. You go around and ask ten or twenty or thirty people about one particular subject or one particular individual and then you go around and get a consensus of feeling and that’s what’s reflected.

BIG, SHOCKING NEWS UPDflTE......

@

I

t has been said that a society should be judged by how it treats those individuals who are the least well-off. Such marxist logma is usually spouted by individuals looking bra hand-out and trying to portray themselves as /ictims who need a “helping hand” ( read: lots of noney) from the govcmment. It is in the best interest of such people to lortray themselves as victimized as possible so as o justify a claim to government funds to help hem out. The Canadian government puts up with nore of this type of nonsense than most other )tates under the guise of “multiculturaIism.” Health Minister Ruth Grier’s announcement egarding grants for programs to help women of :olor, immigrant and/or refugee women over:ome barriers to health shows some of the most idiculous extremes that such government excess nay engender. Let me start by saying that it is difficult to :riticize thcsc programs because the women that he program is designed to help are primarily a) mmigrants and b) victims of racism and in some ases rape or sexual assault. One can hardly onsider a more reprehensibie situation for any iroman to be forced in to. Ofthe fifty-one programs that receivedmoney ast year, only a handful of them seem to work Dwards unworthy goals. Issues of genital mutilaion, rape, the exploitation of mail-order brides, dife abuse and incest are all questions that any :ivilized society should deal with. However, the question remains, are the programs that Grier is uggesting the way to go? It is not always the case hat doing something is better than doing nothing. At the one extreme, we have programs such is “Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture” vhich provides “Support groups for refugee vomen in Metropolitan Toronto who are survi‘ors of torture in Bosnia, Somalia and South isian, Latin American and Middle Eastern counties. These support groups will focus on beginling recovery through education and sharing nformation.” This program received $10,000 ast year. Even a libertarian such as myself finds it difficult to suggest that this is a misappropriation If money. The most admirable thing about this brogram is that the money is being given to a local group which sets its own agenda, rather than the lrovincial government running the programs hemsetves. But not all of these programs seem as worthvhile. Consider “Multicultural Women in Conert” This is a workshop that uses music “as a tool 3 address the combined effects of racism, sexjrn, homophobia, violence and class discriminaion on the health of battered women’s shelters md in prison. A music/songwriting workshop will be designed and conducted to provoke dis:ussion and exchange on these issues.” This pro;ram was given $19,000 last year. I suppose it is open to debate whether or not his program is worthwhiie, however on the face If things, this specific workshop (and there are nany others like it) sounds like the ephemeral pasi-legitimate aid that cause the kind of backash the programs are meant to fight in the first We. When dealing with specific programs that ndividuais in a society are being forced to conribute to, the provincial government must deal, o a large extent, with appearancesPeople must lave confidence that their money is being well )pent. Such apparent frivolity may not only be vasting the average citizen’s money, but also :reates a hostile environment for those groups. ;ome citizens will be actively opposed to any jrograms in the future, and thus may deprive such groups of the help that they need. There is no question that such groups do need he help of caring individuals that wish to help hem improve their situation. However, using lublic money in order to create programs of such imited appeal may create more problems than it iolves.

Is Socialism Finallv Dying? I

n the pages of a previous Imprint was an article about a socialist protest in Ottawa against the Reform party. I was less surprised that Reform was getting some well-deserved flak for some of its questionable policies than by the fact that so many special interest groups are willing to throw in with the socialist cause to further their aims. Beside a picture of “International Socialists” placards was a partial list of the protcstors: the Ontario Coalition of Abor tion Clinics, the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, the Canadian [V Union of Postal Workers, the Campaign for Equal Families, the Canadian Federation of Students, the Canadian Union of Education Workers, Six Nations Confederacy and AIDS Action Now. Quite a mish---,nnh *c “a-h,“;“1 ;HC.-xs-*“i-n

goes on to do just that! As an aside, the Coalition complained that corporate taxes have fallen substantially, and suggested that spending cuts

w

could be avoided by raising them. They are naive. One can draw a direct correlation between corporate profits and employment: ifprofits fall, employment falls. Hurting corporate profits will definitely increase unemployment. Other reasonable rationales exist for not raising corporate taxes. Why is the Abortion Coalition talking about taxation issues that they obviously know nothing about? Many special interest groups, like those mentioned, are straying from their original mandate and becoming ideological parties. A women’s group becomes a socialist women’s group; a Christian group becomes an anti-Quebec Christian group. They are gravely underestimating the sophistication of their members, who are quite prepared to make their own itical choices. I may support abortion I don’t wish a complete, second-hand eology on taxation and socialism thrown at me. One can’t donate money to, say, the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics without some of it being spent promoting these beliefs. In closing, it is disconcerting to hear parties calling out to the “socialist worker.” The socialist worker will cease to exist, because in the future the worker will no Ionger exist. People will either be entrepreneurs, . _ entrcprcneurlal employees, or unemployed. Period. - Stephen

Letters to the IA itor To All University Students

pcoplc arguing that university shodd be completely funded by the government; a proposal which is unreasonable and impractical. The simple truth is that a university education means that you will receive a higher paying job after graduation. Is it not then reasonable to expect that you should be responsible for the majority of the funding of your education? Maybe this means that you must attend an institution closer to your home, or, if Waterloo is so great, maybe it is worth the financial setback of a notable debt. Students must be willing to accept the responsibility and repercusions of that debt. This brings up an interesting point. Co-op students at the University of Waterloo have lheir entire education paidfur by the co-op process. A student can complete five years of co-operative education and actually graduate with a s&nificant profit over their univcrsitv costs! It is criminal that somcone can have the taxpayers foot the entire bill for their education, leave the country, and not repay this nation foranything it has given them. Canadians are making an investment in students, and there must be some way that Canadian society can benefit from that initial investment. It is a much too common occurancc that graduates leave the country, without so much as a year of scrvicu to this nation. Finally, this is directed at all those people who spoke at the assembly on the 10th and complained that the cutback will destroy the fabric of the entire Canadian postsecondary educational system. It is notable that none of the students, nor the executive of the Federations of Students, provided any concrete alternatives when asked to do so by the very politicians they opposed. The students of Waterloo Universi ty, recently cited by Maclean’s Magazine as the leaders of tomor-

To the Editor, By now, everyone in this university, and in most universities across Canada, has heard about the Liberal government’s proposed cutbacks in funding to the universities. This has, understandably, sparked an instictive reaction from the student body. We have been listening to this arguement for the last few months, and feel that it is time for a new perspective to be heard. We support the government’s proposal. Now, before you ignore this letter based on the previous sentence, plcasc hear us out. We have had many discussions and debates with other students, and wish to provide you an alternative to the rhetoric given to you by student governments across this country. A vitally important point to remember is that Canada is currently in a position where its total debt (Provincial, Fcdcral, and Municipal) cxcccds $700 billion, alrnost4~“~c,cl~~tlilz~our Gross National Product. What this means is that if WC took everything that we produccd in one year (and if Canadians received no pay, no bcncfits, and used no scrviccs), WC might just barely have enough to pay off the total debt WC all owe. WC, as Canadians, arc living on other people’s money. This has to stop. Canadians have been getting something for nothing. It seems that many students feel that it is theirright to attend university. Just like many of our social programs, a university education is a privilege, not a right. At the “rally” on Thursday, November lOth, there were

row, arc: unable to provide any altcrnative solutions. What does this say about the future of our country? Personally, we feel that this government’s proposal is long overdue. Perhaps it is time to reevaluate the need to attend university. Colleges are a viable alternative. Universities were initially created as a centre for acedemic studies; they have now become nothing more than a job training school. Collcgcs should be the sole institutions for job training; universities should be the leading institutions for pure and applied research., It is interesting to note that the Federation of Students does not represent the student body of Wat&loo. A government body elected*.@,,=.,, on& 10 percent of the popuiat! ‘* does not have a mandate to ’ for the students on such an i .+ tant issue. If enough students across the country are still against this proposal, then it is time that we unite and, instead of blindly protesting this bill, provide an economically viable alternative. As the leaders of tomorrow, we can no longer afford to merely complain. We have a responsibility to provide solutions that will safeguard post-secondary education for our generation and the next. . . - Terry Stewart, IA Eq - Anik Sane, 1A Eq

As a former member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Mental Association and a former community mental health worker 1 hope that I am able to shed some light on how this type ofjournalism impacts on people who must deal with long term mental illness on a day to day basis. “Look around you at your family, your friends, your co-workers. If they are typical Canadians, one in three of them will have a mental health problem at some point during their lifetime. Unfortunately, they not only will have to contend with their mental health problem, but also the rejection, fear, and stigma that will appear in the eyes, hearts and minds of the people

around them. The greatest tragedy is that many of these people will never seek the help or support they need to resolve their problems hecause of stigma. “Fundamental attitudes and beliefs of many people will have to be changed in order to wash away this problem of stigma. Members of the media have the ability to wash away this problem of stigma. Members of the media have the ability and opportunity to help change those attitudes and beliefs. Attitudes have been changed -- towards people with physical disabilities, towards racial intolerance, towards people with diabetes, cancer and more recently AIDS. And, in many cases, it has been the media and their sensitive reporting of these issues which have made the difference.” These are not my words. They are from Harvey Silverstein, the chair of the Open Mind Task Force, of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Halifax and Dartmouth Branches. As Harvey says, you would probably not ever think to print a cartoon depicting such a derogatory picture of a Native Canadian, a physically disabled person or aperson with AIDS. In future, please do not joke about the tragedy that affects those affected by Schizophrenia or any other chronic long term mental illness. Susan Tirone Recreahm and Leisure

Tu the Editor, As usual, Imprint enjoys courting controversy. What 1 am referring to is the blatant disregard for responsible reporting that exists everywhere, even here at Imprint. To the outside observer it would seem that they are receiving a fair, honest, unbiased flow of information from the people who volunteer to attend the many sporting attractions that Waterloo has to offer. However, as an example of why this isn’t true, one need look no further than the coverage of Rugby. The reporter in this case is Mark Morrisson. Granted, he does not lack the necessary skills to write good, interesting articles, yet we are missing one quintessential element --he is astur Waterloo Rugby pluyer. 5d This is where the problem lies. Are we getting the full scoop? Mark has long been an advocate in trying to increase the sporadic crowds attending Rugby games. Is he just using your paper as a platform to do so by feeding us lies? Would you have had Donald Grump writing daily articles in The Toronto Star expelling the sound virtues of the Canadian Football League? It’s an age old rule that people who have a stake in something

The The Prophet of Islam “We (God) have not sent you (0 Muhammad) but to the whole of humankind, as a giver of glad tidings and as a warner, but most of humankind still do not know.” [translation of the meaning of the Qur’anic verse 34:28]

by Sameh E. Rehan special to Imprint Do you know who really is Muhammad? What was his message? Do you think this matter is not worth investigating? Maybe it is time to know something about this great man who is still influencing more than 20% (about 1000 million persons) of the current earth’s population. If I were to tell you what Muslims have said or written about him, you might consider it as exaggeration or idolization by some of his followers. Why? Because we, as humans, often do that. It is quite natural for anyone to love, praise, or hero-worship one’s leader, be it an actor, a saint, or a prophet. Therefore, in this article I’m going to quote only non-Muslims who devoted some time to study and learn about Muhammad. Lamar-tine said with reference to Muhammad, “As regards to all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?” [Historie de la Turquie, Paris 18541 George Bernard Shaw said about him, ‘I have studied him - the wonderful man - and in my opinion, far from being anti-Christ, he must be called the saviour of humanity.’ [The Genuine Islam] More recently, Michael Hart, a Christian

American, historian, mathematician, and astronomer published an incisive biography of the 100 most influential people of a11time. His extensive research included illustrious personalities such as Jesus Christ, Moses, Caesar, the Wright brothers, Napoleon, Shakespeare, Columbus, and Michaelangelo. In his book, M. Hart rated Muhammad as number ONE. He concluded his biography about Muhammad with these words, “It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.” What about those who wrote attacking Muhammad? What did they accuse him of? Some of them said He was a liar whiIe others claimed he was a crazy person (he thought he was really a Prophet). What is the truth about these aljegations? Let me tell you a well known event that happened and is reported in Muhammad’s history that negates the possibility of him being either a liar or a crazy man. When Muhammad’s only son died, an eclipse happened to the sun in the same day. Muhammad’s followers hurried to him saying that they witnessed this miracle that implied there tias a sadness in the heavens for his son’s death. Now, if he was a liar, he would have taken advantage of this event to prove his Prophethood. If he was crazy, he would even believe this himself. But what did he do? He became angry with his followers and said that the sun and the moon are signs of God and they do not bother themselves with the death of Muhammad’s son. Does that seem a reply from a liar or a crazy man? I don’t think so.

Eye ofthe Beholder

“He asked me out!” “No way! . . . eeeehhhhhh” “Noxzema girls get noticed.” or ding dong “Hi, are you coming out tonight?” “No, I have to babysit my new friend.” Sound familiar? I would hope that most people realize the utter absurdity of these commercials, but maybe some people don’t. In my opinion, commercials such as these are tasteless and sensationalistic, characteristics which are becoming all too common in our culture today. I mean, what’s up with the implicit assumption that the two people with clear complexions-n the Noxzema commercial are going to have a good date? Is-that a11 that really matters? What about the good personality factor? I know that when I’m asked out on a date and the guy has a zit I suddenly come down with a convenient case of the flu (yeah right). Earth to zit companies! Or better yet, the girl in the Oxy commercial that isn’t going to go out because she’s babysitting a zit! Imagine if people actually thought this way - the bars would be practically empty.

But at least the few people at the bars would have good skin (if you want to look on the bright side ofthings). Are these commercials doing a wonderful job of promoting healthy self esteem in today’s youth? On a more serious note, I think the subconscious effects these commercials have on people are very harmful. They tend to distort people’s perceptions about what is really important -which is who you are. In the long run, it is not your appearance that will matter. It is very unfortunate that most of these commercials are directed towards girls because thev reinforce the no-

looking good x I thinLit is nccessary to recognize these commercials for what they actually are: big business promoting and feeding on Western society’s obsession with physical perfection. These ads simply magnify insecurities which we all feel. While this is very advantageous for business, I personally feel that advertising a product does not have to involve directing insults to the customer. Just for the record, I have a few zits today, but I’m going out tonight. What would Oxy Inc. think? More importantly, should I or anyone care?

Gamma radiation and TV contradictions

(at Charles)

Skepticism of television and the service it provides viewers is a prevalent atti-tude today. With debate raging about media’s role in the telling of daily events -- mostly dealing with unethical overachieving reporters who’11 do whatever it takes to get the story -,- it’s becoming nearly unstoppable. And now another trend -- televisionchannels using self-promoting commercials to provide a commentary on how they’re putting something back into the community. Local television station CKCO, for one, airs these public service infomercials late in the evening, throwing out dollar figures to the sum of $150,000 of free air time donated to the annual cause of their choice. Two years ago they promoted anti-racism, and last year they focused on Canadians and Canada. Their cause this year, which will doubtlessly please their late night viewers, is against violence. An admirable cause to be sure, but this is precisely where my skepticism lies, as a recent incident clearly illustrates. Just prior to CKCO General Manager Don Wilcox’s delightful commentary and revelation about the evils of violence, I was enjoying an all-time classic re-run of The Incredible Hulk. Remember the Wulk? Well the show isn’t exactly Sweet Valley High where the worst act of violence is probably a bad case of acne. Thus it happened that Wilcox’s commendable rant against violence interrupted my enjoyment of scientist David Banner getting angry, turning into a big green monster, smashing cars, beating people up, and generally

creating

a highly

entertaining

nuisance of himself. Wilcox didn’t exactly eiaborate on violence. He just said “violence.” Not violence in sports, violence on T.V., nor violence against women --just plain old “violence.” Wonderful. But is the irony of Wilcox’s

blathering sermon in the very middle of the Hulk totally lost on the station, or what? Or, was it inadvertently used as a time f’lll before signing off for the evening? Either way, a message promoting anti-violence really loses its sting in the middle of a desensitizing episode of that which it condemns. I should be happy that CKCO finds it in themselves to take some responsibility to promote just causes, however Wilcox seems to be speaking out of both sides of his mouth. When keeping CKCO self-interest in mind I really don’t feel that this station can eliminate acts of violence shown on television because people will merely start to speak with the remote control. If just causes interfere with revenue, CKCO’s admirable crusade against violence will come up short. On the other hand, when CKCO starts acting as a soundingboard for a cause, they had better adjust their programming to reflect this moralistic high-ground. Likewise, discontinuing the showing of The FOMJ~Y Rangers will shut parents up for now, but only until another new children’s program comes along and takes it’s place on society’s chopping block. Who is CKCO trying to please with their grandstanding anyway? Obviously, it’s not the people that watch their programs, but rather self-interest groups who feel that their outlook on life should be respected above and beyond anybody elses. Perhaps viewers could have a say in what kind of violence is acceptable on TV? I’d like to know who is deciding for me what forms of acceptable violence I can watch. Certainly. I should hope that Wilcox, who probably has his hand in some self-interest groups’ pockets, can’t be playing both fiscally responsible General Manager and socially conscious censor. - Fat Merlihan

Saturday morning, 8:45 - We arrived at the building site. The Greater Cleveland Habitat Affiliate is currently working on four houses on Canal Street, a primarily African-American area. We were to work on two houses: The first was being “built by women for women” and the next was paid for

by St. Joseph’s Parish. Other houses were sponsored by the Girl Guides of Cleveland and a local church. Amy told us that CWRU its trying to raise the $30,000 (US) to build a Case Western house. Our mouths fell open when Dan told us that CWRU Habitat had 500 members and a 14 person executive. 9:00 am. - The building coordinators put us to work immediately. WC were working alongside the Girl Guides, the Hungarian Association of CWRU, and part ofthc CWRU Law School - about fifty people. People were laughing and humming as they got dirty.

We met the eldest, Charles, when he came by to give us a hand with the ‘goop’ on the ceiling. He explained to us that he was going to paint an f- 16 jet on the ceiling of his room. We chatted to him for awhile about football and his bossy younger sister. He was really looking forward to moving. As he spoke, it occurred to us that this house would be full, although less crowded than the one they lived in up the street. Maybe it would be the first time Charles didn’t have to share a bedroom. 4:30pm. - Wcputthelastbitof stucco on the dining room ceiling and went outside to see how the day had gone. The huge mound of dirt and rocks was gone from the back yard. The railing was up on the back porch. The driveway was ready for cement. The soffit was up at the front, and the stairs were almost finished. It was hard to believe that so much had been done in one day. Heather, the Outreach coordinator for CWRU, told us that they build two days a week al1 year. The Greater Cleveland afiliate hopes to dedicate its one hundredth house by Christmas. As one building coordinator thanked us for coming, I felt that I should be thanking her. The afflli-

ate had given us the opportunity to use our muscles, and to meet the people who would benefit from eight hours of our time. We felt great. We got lost however, on the way back to the church. As we drove closer to downtown Cleveland, away from the Institute of Art, away from the theatres and museums, we realized that what we had done was a small part ofwhat needed to be done. We passed houses that sagged on one side, and patched shacks with windows covered in plastic. Even inplaceslike Toronto, the scars of poverty aren’t as obvious as thev are in Americin cities.

f you have to lost to nnyonc, it’s best to lose to the best around. The basketball Warriors saw their hopes for a tourney victory dashed early by the eventual winncrs, the Winnipeg Wcsmcn, as they lost their opening game by twenty points. Though they had hoped for a better showing in the Naismith tournament last weekend, they managed a 6%64- consalation win over their rivals, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks.

Wcdlakc. And Wedlakewas not shy with his feelings about playing in Waterloo, as hejokingly told the 1,OOOplus fans he would consider moving here permanently. “Like other years, the crowd was more than supportive. They have some real basketball fans here,” hc added. The all-Manitoba game saw a battle between the country’s top point-guards, as Winnipeg Thor Oleson and Brandon’s Scott Keeney both led their teams with 25 points a piece, To coincide with their pcrformancc, they were each named to the tournament’s all-star team. The Bobcats were by far the Wesman’s toughest opponent, as Winnipeg handled both Waterloo and McGill quite easily on their way to the fmal. St. Francis Xavier and the

Brock Badgers were the Bobcat’s victims, bcforc Brandon succumbing to Winnipeg in the final. Wesman centre Norm Froemel seemed to make the difference between winning and losing. He had only four first half points, before storming back in the second half with 20. The 7’0” star had nothing but respect for the runner-up team. “They held me for the first half, and I knew I had to come out big in the last 20 minutes. But the whole team played well,” he said. Joining the two guards on the all-star team were Brandon’s Euon Roberts, Ryerson’s Alex Beason, and Brock’s Dave Picton, who led the tournament in scoring with 92 points. The tournament victory clearly places Winnipeg as the team to beat when the season begins in six weeks from now.

Ncithcr team sccmcd to want to lost infront of the packed home town crowd. Rookies Mike Strocder and Mano Watsa showed their stuff in both games and did not let the Hawks push them around. Tempers flared, on both side as Mike Strocder fouled out late in the second half after collecting 10 points. Forward Tom Balfe who had been out earlier this season with a

knee injury saw some action in the game against the Hawks. His presence in the game seemed to be the motivator that pushed the team to win the close match against Laurier. Waterloo ended up in the consultation game with the Hawks after they lost to the McGill Redmen 76 56 on Friday Night. At half time the Redmen only had a sight lead over the Warriors at 37-34, before took control in the second half. Mark Hopkins had 21 points and 6 rounds against McGill while Matt Williams had 10 points.

ow that’s more like it! That is what you could say about the effort put forth by the Warriors hockey team, with rcgard to the road trip they took to Kingston this past weekend. Decisivc wins over Queen’s and RMC gave Waterloo a much needed 4 points. The Warriors began their tour of the mid cast division with a l-0 victory over Queen’s The night before, the third place Golden Gales had flexed their proverbial muscles, beating previously unbeaten Lauricr 4-l. That obviously didn’t phase the men from Waterloo, as they not only beat Queen’s, but held them scoreless for the entire game. Waterloo coach Don McKee though that Lauricr was “vulnerable” and hc was not overly surprised at Saturday’s result. The next stop for the Warriors was only a short hop across the channel to RMC. Going into the game, thelowly Redmen satin fourth place, alone at the bottom of the mid east division with only one point. By the end of the night, that hadn’t changed, as Waterloo handed them a 4-l defeat. Waterloo carried their momentum from Saturday night’s game into the contest on Sunday and it showed as they recorded a healthy four goals en route to their second win in as many days. The two wins improved the ice Warriors record to Z-2-2, and moved them closer to second place Westem in the far west division. A big part of the Warriors success can be found between the pipes. As of November 15, rookie goaltender Joe Harris was fifth in the country with a goals against average of 2.95. On Saturday Xarris stopped an amazing 31 shots on the way to his first OUAA shutout. Sunday saw Harris at work again, stoping 16 of 17 RMC shots, more than good

enough for the win. Harris’ performance in only his third and fourth 0UA.A starts was good enough to earn lii!~ &hlete of the week honours. Anyone who knows sports knows the value of winning on the road and what it can do for a team. These two road wins are a huge boost for this talented Warrior team who were highly touted at the beginning of the season. The feeling around the rink is that this years ice Warriors are an improved club, defensively, over last year. With a goaltender in the top five in the nation and a road trip that gives up only one goal, defense is definitely there. Although he acknowledged the absence of any “prolific goal scorers” at this point, coach McKee was happy with the defensive cffort put forth over the weekend. These two wins set the Warriors up nicely to build on their point total, with 3 of their next 5 games at home. Laurentian and Ryerson will be here tonight and on Sunday, respectively. Laurentian sits in 3rd place with 6 points and Ryerson in 4th with 4 points, both in the mid west division. Four points this weekend would move Waterloo to ten points on the season and give them a potential share of first place. Capturing these four points will be vital, as the following three games will bring the Warriors up against inter-division rivals Windsor, Western and Laurier. The game versus the Golden Gales will be the only game that finds the Warriors at home. That series will have significant effect on how the far west division looks. The series will also be pivotal, coming at the crucial mid-point of the season. The players won’t find them-

selves with much idle time over the holidays, as they will be in Saskatchewan and Guelph, all before the New Year.

OUAA. And Price believes his team is better than that. “I believe we are higher than eight, but from the play tonight, I would be afraid of giving us much more than the rankings say,” he added. Winning by scores of 15-5, 15-5 and 15-7, the Warriors seem unbeatable as they haven’t lost a set in several weeks. Their record is an impressive 10 for 10 in exhibition and regular season play, and they don’t seem to be slowing down. Though Price was unimpressed with his teams overall play, he did reserve some complements for a trio of players. “Pete Denison and Kent Prete were playing exceptionally well, and Rene Holt’s passing was good.” The Warriors play their next games this weekend in the 1994 Waterloo Warrior Volleyball ClasThe Waterloo on teams from

I

‘ve got two beefs, and I’ll tell you what they are. The first is people who claim to love sports but are lazy bastards who never exercise. The second is people who get off on “their team” winning when they have no right to. Everyday, I meet people who are “into” sports. They can tell you who won and who lost last night, they can give you stats all day and the life story of the players all night. But, these people who claim to respect and admire the great athletes so much never exercise! I don’t understand it. Personally, T try to emulate my heros and the people who I admire. For example, I admire (as do millions of others) Arnold Schwartzeneger, As a result of this, I work out. I pump a bit of iron and I do see some results. I know I’ll never be even

Every Wednesday

remotely like him, but I can at least try, and I feel better about myself because of that. But other people seem to do the opposite. Why is it so many football fans are fat? Why is drinking lots of beer associated with so many major sports? These “fans” are just a bunch of lazy bastards who let others live out their little fantasies of being great, while they sit back and soak up brews and expend no effort whatsoever. This brings me to my second beef: people who try to take the glory of a sports team winning, when it has nothing to do with them. This applies to anyone who has ever boasted or made a big scene when their favourite team won. This means anyone who hooted and hollered when the Blue Jays won either of their World Series’, or anyone who yelled and screamed when the Leafs did well last year, and anyone who was out

on the streets during the world cup. I don’t know how many people in WaterToo this applies to, but I was in Toronto for the Jays’ first series, the Leafs last year, and I had the misfortune to live in Little Jtaly during the World Cup. Believe me, I’m talking about tens of thousands of people. These people have nothing to do with the team winning, so where do they get off lording it over anyone? Did these idiots help coach? Did they lend moral support? No, They just sat in front of their TV’s and when people far away kick a ball into a net, or whatever, they act like it is their accomplishment. The fans have no reason to feel proud. They have no reason to feel anything, because they didn’t do anything. So what I’m saying is: sports fans, get off your asses and exercise, and then, after you’ve actually done something to be proud of, tell me. Maybe thef; I’ll Ii&en. .

Wiley veteran Brian Roughley led the Waterloo charge by example, handily winning the4OOrn freestyle. Rookie Chris Palin took second place honours. A second one-two punch for the Warriors came in the 2OOm backstroke with Chris “neutralman” Nagy and John Harland providing the blows. Nagy also added a second in the 20Om individual medly and a third in the 200m breaststroke. Sophmore Ed Furs won the 200 freestyle and was a close second in the 1OOm freestyle as well. Harland, Nagy, Furs and rookie Bryan Normandin combined on the 4x50111 freestyle relay, dominating the competition for an easy first place. After the final scores were tallied, Waterloo had easily beaten Laurier, but finised behind Guelph by a mere 5 points. The Athenas also found the lady Golden Gales an improved team over last season. Nevertheless, the Athenas managed some impressive swims. Kara Rice led the way by winning the 2OOm breast and finishing second in the 100.

This time the rookies led the way with Greg Stump, Adrian Mendes and Bryan Normandin finishing 2nd,3rd and4th respectively, in the 100~1 fly. Stump added another second in the 2OOm butterfly, while Mendes finished second in the 50m freestyle. I Another rookie, James Ryans looked very strong cruising to a first place finish in the 200m freestyle. Other winners included Nagy in both the 200m backstroke and the 200m breaststroke. Ryans and L,arry Huang followed up Nagy’s win in the breaststroke, finishing 2nd and 3rd to complete the sweep of the event. Ed Furs added two wins of his own, in the 1OOm freestyle and the 200m butterfly. Alex Kim swam to a 4th place finish in the 200m butterfly turning in some impressive split times over the grueling race. Trevor “gnat”Denstedt, swimming with painfully injured shoulders, proved he is still “The Man” as he scored in both the 200m IM and 200m back. Dave Chasse greatly improved his 1UOm breaststroke and backstroke. performances, finishing

fourth and fifth respectively. Newcomers Grant Hutchinson and Kevin Blake proved their mettle as they combined for three 3rds and a 4th, scoring points in all swims. John “Red Dog” Harland added a first, in the 4x50 freestyle relay, to his two second place finishes in the 1OOm backstroke ;ind 1OOru breaststroke. Furs, Nagy and Normandin rounded out the winning relay team. Tereza Mace1 started a wave of success for the Athenas, swimming to a second place finish in the 800m freestyle, a third in the 200 breaststroke, and a first in the 4x 100 rnedley relay.

The Warriors and Athenas of yesteryear proved up to the challenge. The current varsity team graciously spotted their ancient counterparts some generous handicaps, “just to keep things competetive”. Both sides implementing questionable tactics in a fiercely battled contest. In the end, age and experience prevailed over good looks and youth. Thanks to all Alumni who made the trip and made this Homecoming truly memorable.

Ski team

special

Murray to the Imprint

T

he Nordic Ski Team is alive and kicking, and has been involved in dry-land training since the second week of classes. Official practices are scheduled on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4:30-6:30 with various torturous training methods, devised by mentor and coach Don MacKinnon. Trainning includeds ski-specific technique work, such as rollerskiing, ski hiking,bounding and pullies. Other training to develop muscle growth, endurance and speed include soccer, pilamentrics, distance running, and fartlets. The team has also been observing Accident Waterloo Nordic ccremonial traditions to appease the sylow gods, and to prime the body for another year of challenging races. Sunday mornings, are an optional early morning distance rollerski for those that arc up to it. Sunday afternoon practice consists of a bike trip out to Schneider’s bush, and a ski hike workout. Ski hiking amounts to charging through the woods with sharply pointed ski poles in hand, terrorizing weekend hikers as the movements of classical skiing are mimicked. This years annual fall training

season camp, held at Duntroon Highlands on November 4-6, combined a number of these activities producing a full weekend of comprehensive training for the twenty athletes that attended. More recently, the team participated in the AHS 5km Fun Run. This event saw the team dressing up in ceremonial costumes (ski accidents) as they rollerskiied the two laps of Ring Road. The outfits worn by the team was a ritualistic pageant for the nordic gods in an effort to prevent any real injuries from occurring during the ski season. Besides, all those tensor bandages prevented people from figuring out who the team really was just in case we came in last. And finally, the latest development in the world of ski team was the construction of a genuine 50 m ski course in a secret location. Five hours of hard work finally paid off on Friday the 1 lth, for a couple of hours. Evidently, not enough appeasements have been made to Mother Nature, as she cursed our vigourous efforts ofcreating a winter environment by causing a rise in the thermometer and a splattering of precipitation. However, there are many more Friday nights in the future, especially those pre-exam evenings, in which we spend hours transporting snow to build a ski course. Until we are blessed with the real stuff.

he 1994-95 UW badminton team has a host of new faces including a new assistant coach and five rookies. At the crossover tournament at McMaster, the team had a near perfect record against Ryerson, winning all 8 singles matches, 3 doubles matches, dropping only a doubles and mixed doubles match.

The players for the 1994-95 seasons are (in alphabetical order) for the Athenas: Vivienne Chan: A 3A Arts Accounting student, this Torontonian has a sharp offensive game. Steep smashes and deep clears are a big asset to Vivienne’s game. She also provides strong moral support to the team which improves the team’s cohesiveness. Susan Ho: Susan is a 3rd year Biochemistry student from China. She has been playing competitive badminton for only two years, but has just joined the team this year.

The belief allegedly stems from various accidents, fires, and deaths which have occurred during productions of the play throughout history, and may also reflect fears that Shakespeare was a little too adventurous in his invocations of satanic elements. However, the University of Waterloo Drama Department is hoping that the gods of the theatre will smile on them next week, when director Maarten van Diik’s vision of the tragedy hits Jthe

where “There’s daggers in men’s smiles.” Familiar faces Jonathan Goad and Sarah Webcr have had to tackle these intricate concepts as they face the thespian challenges of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Other senior drama majors and veteran performers in the cast include Tim Rogers as the unfortunate king, Dylan Roberts as Macbeth‘s valiant foe, and Jennifer Clark, Michael MacDonald, Anand Rajaram, and many more. Sets, lights, and costumes designed, respectively, by William Chesney, Alex Kordics, and Jocelyne Sobeski, are orchestrated to create “a nightmare of epic proportions.” Or, as van Dijk puts it: “to knock your socks off.”

A cast of more than 30 has struggled with Shakespeare’s rhythms and imagery through two months of daily rehearsals. Visiting artist John Stead, a fight director at Stratford, has worked closely with the students to create scenes of heated combat, while Rob LeGood’s drumming and the actors’ own body painting designs aim to achieve a tribal, animalistic atmosphere. Van Dij k wants to stress not only the sophisticated veneer which the Macbeths show the world but also “the serpent under 2.” According to the press release, “the key to realizing Shakespeare’s classic cautionary talc, for spectators who no longer bclieve in the divine right of monarchs or the reign of the supernatural, is to bring out the meanings of the text, the resonance of greed, lust, and power in our own minds.” Shakespeare has, after all, created a moral universe in which “Fair is foul, and foul is fair,”

Toronto’s Macbeth? Mac1ousy! h

Macbeth by Willium Shakeqxare Unplugged Productions The Annex Theatre, 730 Bathurst, Toronto Until Sat. Nov. 19 by Jennifer Epps special to Imprint

T

here’s another new professional theatre company in Toronto, Unplugged Productions, and their inaugural venture is nothing less ambitious than Shakespeare’s Mmbeth. it is only when we see that director Cavan Young and star Adam Large are also the co-producers of the show that we understand how Large got the role; and that’s about as much speculation as we want to make. What Unplugged gives us could be re-titled Not-A4ucbeth, or perhaps, to be more precise, AJotMacbeth, Not-theWitches, and Net-Much-of-the-Porter Eitfw, but hey, that still leaves a dozen scenes. What is wrong with Large’s performance as Macbeth? Rather ask: What isn ‘t? As soon as he opens his mouth we wonder if he’s related to Keanu Reeves, and when, in his second scene, he reacts to Malcolm’s being chosen Prince of Cumberland by not knowing where to look, we know this is the onset of divine retribution

we’ve written. Large’s Macbeth responds to Lady M,‘s exhortations to murder by emphatically shaking his head over and over. (He doesn’t want to kill, you know.) His main aim seems to be to avoid straining his thin voice

in the tiny Annex Theatre, and he ducks whenever a difficult emotion threatens to nudge him. The end result is hardly a Macbeth consumed by ambition and tortured by conscience. It’s more like Macbeth slightly bothered by a hangnail. Although Jody Racicot, in his 3rd Witch guise, acts like someone who’s trying to pretend the audience can’t see him, the major problem with the weird sisters is Young’s concept of them. Racicot is a male witch who wanders around bald and barechested in tight black pants; Mindy Forrester and Michelle Collins wear similarly suggestive leather outfits and writhe and gyrate in S and M scenarios. That’s fine and radical, but Young never thinks to If it’s not Scotish, it’s crap. apply this to the actual play. So we can’t figure out how much power the witches duologue--it sort of becomes a have, what they’re after, why second intermission. Though Macbeth would pay them any John Weisgerber’s Macduff is heed, or how the hell we’re supsuitably pugilistic, Neil Ingram’s posed to take them seriously. Malcolm just seems grumpy, like When Shakespeare jumps he’s having a bad hair day. (Infi-om beleaguered Scottish oords deed, in his first scene, a battleto Malcolm’s English hiding field confab, his bangs sweep place and Malcolm and Macduff down alluringly as if he’s come slowly feel each other out, we get straight from Vidal Sassoon’s; in England, evidently, he has to slick “the testing scene” that may well it back himself.) also be the ultimate test of any This is not to say that most of production of Mucb&.

ror in her multiple roles as Donalbain, Lady Macduff, and the Doctor; James Binkley’s Ross, Roger Honeywell’s Banquo, and Glen McDonald’s Lennox are all watchable and eloquent. And Lady Macbeth, cleanly and humanly portrayed by Sharon Heldt, makes the scenes with her husband bearable. Nor are all of Young’s notions paltry. He gives Ross a political throughline that makes his character important even to the end of the play, creating a story for Ross beyond the literal text; similarly, he allows Lennox to surface when he isn’t stipulated in Shakespeare’s stage directions. Where helpful, Young cuts, splits, or redistributes lines, and this often is surprisingly - _ effective. Young also imagines contexts for two small scenes that can easily fall into straight exposition. He casts the Old Man as a Reporter, so that Ross’ conversation with him becomes an exchange of sound bites about the kingdom, and, this time invoking a cynical journalist, Racicot’s na.saI drone suits. The conspiratorial gossip between Lennox and the Lord is placed in a church and the Lord is transformed into a priest, so that the secrecy and mystery of the moment is intensified.

d

Unplugged’s publicity stresses the “modern parallels” and “20th century backdrop” of the play, but Young’s definition of contemporary must be very shailow: it seems to consist of costuming soldiers in T-shirts and jeans so they’ll look like everyone you see every day of your life. Furniture and props don’t match each other or any particular style, so they too seem like objects any student could pick up at a second-hand store. Even that gold throne has modern overtones--it’s plasticky, and reminds you of prizes in Cracker Jack. Perhaps this casualness is a fiendish ploy to make us identify with the nobles, or perhaps the show just had a low budget, but neither explanation justifies the absence of liquid in a wine bottle from which Seyton pours, or the knife worn on Macbeth’s back and sticking out ludicrously underneath his robes. Though the director and much of the cast have appeared at Stratford, Shaw, and other professional theatres, Unplugged’s professionalism leaves quite a bit to be desired. Snapshots of rehearsals hang in the lobby, replete with sophomoric captions; actors’ biographies contain indulgences like “For a good time call...“; and at intermission one runs into the cast outsicle having a smoke. Despite some strengths, Unplugged’s Macbeth doesn’t tilfill the wildness and power promised by the company’s name. This group is a little too unplugged for its own good.

They are taken from hlicipu from-, the 1901 book by science fiction author H.G. Wells. Such revelations of racism and further of sexism, intolerance and a general inconsideration towards one’s fellow man are disturbingly common in Michael Cot-en’s book about Herbert George Wells. However this is not a “Lives of John Lennon” work of unverified claims and misdirected venom. It is a well written work of researched truths com-

posed with a clear grasp of the characters that populated Wells’ world, as well as the time that he lived in. As an examination of Wells’ life, Corcn’s biography is highly critical without being overly so. Every claim made about Wells’ character and his Iife is well documcntcd by letters, personal accounts and direct quotations from Wells’ books which often provide the most damning evidence of Wells’ more sinister side. In addition to a proclivity towards eugenics and other forms of social engineering, Wells’ life was also shadowed by an atrociously inconsiderate attitude towards women, a hostility towards both Koman Catholics and Jews, as well as a tendency to consider criticism of his work as personal attacks. With his one giant eye, Wells was the only Although Wells is man alive able to see the invisible man. known primarily for his science fiction works, namely The Time Machine, War of the cal system is as horrifying as it is Workis and The hvLsl:bZe Man, naive.

ble. I have little or no doubt that it will be planned and achicvcd.” In the same chapter he adds that the population of his new order “wdl naturally regard the modest suicide of incurably melancholy or discased or helpless persons as a high and courageous act of duty rather than a crime.” Such confusion over public issues were transferred over into his private life. He was a notorious womanizer who made many women’s lives miserable, including his wife Amy (whose name was changed under Wells’ orders to Jane .) Although publicly a defender of the women’s suffrage movement, Wells’ affairs were well known and caused constant humiliation to Jane. The most infamous of these affairs was with an intelligent young journalist and feminist named Rebecca West who raised Wells’ interest. Unfortunately (although predictably) their union was disastrous for both of them. After a furious romance, Wells eventually impregnated West, and soon thereafter began distancing himself from her.

Coren’s biography of Wells makes no excuses for Wells regarding such incidents, and indeed the sheer number of incidents of infidelity Coren cites are an indication of both the vulgarity of Wells, and the concern Coren expresses for such unethical behaviour. However, Coren does not simplify these events into a simple “Welts the misogynist” caricature of a misled writer. Coren includes letters written by Wells to West that reveal a confused man, but also a brilliant writer whose love was, although sometimes hidden, real nonetheless. Wells himself suffered public humiliation several times. His debates with George Bernard Shaw during his brief membership in the Fabian society and his embarrassing series of debates over Catholicism (which he also despised, along with Judaism) with Hilaire Belloc caused Wells much public disgrace. Even considering the pain Wells inflicted on others, Coren makes it difficult not to sympathize with Wells. Coren’s insight relies on a fully rounded picture of Wells. All aspects of Wells’ life, his writing, his lovers, his political debates, and the community in which he lived all contribute to providing a well rounded picture of a brilliant, but ultimately misguided man.

Our

Lady Peace and concert report The Vdcur1o Friday November 11

lntcrvicw

by Mike McKay Imprint staff

B

cforc the show, Imprint had the cxclusivc chance of talking to icad singer/ songwriter Rainc from Our Lady Peace. How has the tour been going so far? This tour has been amazing! It’s our first hcadiining tour across the country. We didn’t really know how WC would do but aII the way from Vancouver basically cvq Jww has been sold out. Generally speaking, what influences affect Our Lady Peace, especially you as a song writer? Everything, we ail listen to so many diff’crcnt styles of music. That’s the really important thing about the band, the diversity. Thcrc is so much outside Amcrican music or even British music, so much to get your hands on. I really Ii kc Kagc Against the Machine and Chris, our bass player, really digs Ihat 3s ~011. The four of us fitId a lot of7 influcnccs that tic into more spiritual things and arc not rlcccssibic “pop” music. I really iikc stcvic Won&and Otis Redding. Those guys arc classits. Thcrc’s dcfimteiy no one today that has the same kmd of. cncrgy, passion and honesty in his voice 3s Stcvic Wonder, it’s too bad. You mcntioncd influences that tie to more spiritual things. Looking through your CD there is a lot of stuff dealing with magic, superstition and the soul. Where does that all come from? That’s the big quest, trying to find out what you are about. Kel&ion and anything that is kind of intangible iikc the spirit is really trivialized. A good example is the way east Indians treat music, it is so much a part of your life it is part of your spirit. Music is so much a part of the soul, it is a pure way to express yourself, it’s not a money venture, it’s not about making videos and being a commercial product. Obviously you have got to play the game. I always put an emphasis on finding yourself and looking through people and seeing things you don’t usually look at. Speaking of “playing the game” and trying to avoid the commercialism of music, does Our Lady Peace have any plans for another single off this album? It’s hard, we’ve been trying to play down the band since we have started. Play down the band? Yeah, We knew that we wouldn’t get a lot of airplay and that would correlate to not getting a lot of video play. We are a very young band and kind of green in terms of our live Show. Sony loved the album and told us we would, “be as big as Pearl Jam, you’re going to take over the world!” It was just like, no were not, relax, and don’t tell anybody else that! We preferred to build up from a grass roots level, with

pcoplc seeing us live. What’s in the future for Our Lady Peace? We have been writing, WC will probably head to the studio for a week in Decembcr and try and catalogue some stuff. Next Tuesday WC are firming up our deal in the states, including our rclcase date. I can’t see us recording again for another year at least Changing the subject a bit, some of your fans may be wondering what Our Lady Peace (the name) rncans or where it comes from? It came from Mark Vandoren from Illinois that wrote a poem called Our Lady Peucc. He is a pseudo literary giant fiom that genre of poets. When we were looking for a Good Catholic name we camL: across this poem. Thcrc IS somothing WC dacribo as a dark optimism in the music and the lyrics, the poem is the same, it has the optimism hidden. It is a really intcrprctivc poem; the more times you read it you start taking diffilrcnt stances on it, and that is what WC want in our music. It’s going to mean something different to different pcopk. it (the poem) seemed like the right thing to do, and it summed ui the whole vibe that we tried to create for the record. Xs there, perhaps, a story behind the album title, Naveed? Naveed is a friend of mint. His name is a Persian word for “bearer of good news”. Some of our stuff is angry and a little sarcastic, and usually anything that comes across angry is pessimistic, but it’s not like that. So we chose Naveed to rub the anger together with some kind of optimism. We are not just another angry band. A lot of bands in our genre of music are completely un-focused, yelling, and angry, you can’t go through life like that. For those of us who own your album, maybe you can settle a question regarding the foreign language or script written under the CD tray. It’s Sanskrit, a middle eastem writing from ages and ages ago. It just means Our Lady Peace, we researched it and transcribed it. It really ties into that middle eastern feel. Something that the band can really respect and hold on to. Obviously the middle east has a great deal of influence upon your music. Yeah, there was a point in the record when we were recording when it got to be too much, in terms of the sound of the music. We were a little uncomfortable with our grasp of it all. So we didn’t go overboard. It think as records go on we will be able to understand it more therefore we

will be able to embrace it more. Right now it’s more of a philosophicai point opposed to a musicai stand point. It’s definitely going to come out, because were

east.

all very much inspired by it. One last question, I don’t know if there is an answer to this hut who is Tltti Bir&an? The birdrnan is a guy that I met in Kansas city about a year and a half-ago. We were staying in this hotel and for some reason there was this fuckin’ nut on the street corner until seven in the morning. Probably a politician or a business man who had lost everything. Yelling and spewing t

American city propaganda. 1 wanted to kill him. He was this old, old, guy, no shoes, really dirty, tattered shorts, but his big fucking bird hat with real bird feathers and a beak! He was really inteiiigent. You just kind of step back and think, you can’t judge anybody because this man had a lot to say. He turned out to be very well spoken and very well read. I kind of looked back and kept thinking don’t judge people, don’t judge anyone. The chorus of the song came out of him bccause he was yelling “Nobody’s wrong, don’t question... Nobody’s right.” I just kind of turned it around and put it on him. Question yourself, and don’t judge people. After the interview Our Lady Peace took to the stage in front of a sold out audience within the tiny Volcano. Beginning the evening slightly after twelve due to technical difficulties Our Lady Peace nevertheless performed a full length, high calibrc show over and above anything anyone expected. Rocking right into “Supersatellite”, front man Raine sccmcd entranced within his music. He also let the truth be known that he enjoys lunging about the stage. He jumped shook, spun, and flailed around.

The energy and excitment was felt within every comer of the puny Volcano. Rowdy body surfers flew overhead while the band shifted into a high gear performance of “The Birdman.” Soon enough, however, the band’s energy took over the audience and something new needed to be done. During the song “Hope,” Raine hollered out into the dark, “Is there anybody there?” Of course the audience wasn’t about to let the band show them up. So the more agile surfers of the crowd (not to mention more daring) climbed up to the side ledge by the speaker and launched themselves over top of a choppy sea of’ heads. Perhaps the highlight of the night came towards the end of their set when a moving version of the Beatles, “Dear Prudence” slowed things down. Our Lady Peace didn’t allow a second to go by whcrc the intense musical assault was not felt by all. This energy only added a whole new dimension to their year old debut album Nuv~cci. This is one band detinitely worth checking out in concert. Near the close of their set, Rainc announced that stage diving would be allowed for the rcmainer of the evening. As the band progressed into their smash hit “Starseed,” bouncers were unable of taming the fiery crowd. Much to the bouncers’ opposition, excited audience members leapt on stage, danced frantically about and then launched heroically over the bobbing crowd. Truly an exhilarating and energetic performance. Jf they can keep up this calibre of show, surely international success is in the near future.

Interview directed

SUPER OPTICAL

f you had any doubts before, lay them to rest now. Vampirism has gone mainstream. Despite the disgusting Hollywood mainstreamness of it,lnterview with the Vunzpire is worth the price of admission. The film does a decent job of following the Anne Rice novel (most consider it to be her best work) from which it was spawned. This is not surprising, as Rice herself wrote the screenplay. A brief synopsis, for those who have not read the book. The tale begins in 20th century San Francisco when a naive young journalist (played on the screen by Christian Slater) meets Louis (Brad Pitt), a man who claims to be a 200 year old vampn-e. Louis commences to tell his life story, and we are taken back to 18th century New Orleans, when Louis was an ordinary mortal and d society gentleman. There he meets the vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise) who offers him a choice: death, or become a vampire. Louis, without quite knowing what he is getting into, chooses the latter. Lestat becomes Louis’ companion and vampire mentor, a relationship which is, at the best of times, uneasy. Along the way they pick up a young girl, Claudia (Kirstcn Dunst), and give her the “dark gift,” to serve as their surrogate

daughter. The story essentially centres around Louis and Claudia, and their search to come to grips with what they have become. Evcntually they ditch Lestat and head for Europe, where they meet and run afoul of a colony of vampires.

The weakest part of the t3m is the acting, Brad Pitt gets by, he has his good scenes and his bad scenes. The shakiest are the ones he does with Christian Slater. Christian Slater is, well, Christian Slater. As usual,-the only charac-

ter he seems to be able to play is himself. In spite of the objections of Anne Rice, Tom Cruise manages to pull off a remarkably good Lestat. Cruise has perfected a look of sheer malice that befits a His only problem, the vampire. same one he has in all his films, is that he can’t do passionate anger. As soon as he starts to raise his voice, he looks like he’s gone cross-eyed and all you want to do is laugh. Both Pitt and Cruise seem uncomfortable with the stylistic period language that they are required to use. Their accents tend to be Costner-like in their inconsistency. The high point of the film is, beyond a doubt, Claudia. Kirsten Dunst does a brilliant job of portraying the anger and emotions of a woman trapped forever (because vampires don’t age physically) in a girl’s body. Also notable is Antonio Banderas as the oldestof-the-vampires Armand. What Pitt, Cruise and Ban&as all succeed ’ marvcllously at, is bringing out the homosexual subtcxt of vampirism. It is bcautiful in its subtlety. Overall, the film perfectly captures the gothic atmosphcrc of the book. The period sets and costumes arc a marvel to behold. Compared to such classics as The Hwigw, htwvi4w with the Vunzpiw is not the best of the vampire films. For fans of the gothic genre, however, it is dcfinitely worth the price of adtnission.

s the name of a strip club, Exotica inclines certain activity and affects the lives of many. The film is made up of several intertwining plots, that use flashbacks to draw in and hold the viewer. The lines of fantasy and reality constantly blur, and themes of deception and communication abound. Slow paced and methodical, it creates the hypnotic and languishing atmosphere of Exutica. Egoyan has chosen his actors well, as they play their roles with unflinching honesty and intensity. The story evolves from Bruce Greenwood’s character Francis Brown. An emotionally shattered man still recoiling from the tragic loss of his wife and daughter, he finds that reality holds little comfort. Don McKellar plays the pet shop owner Thomas, who illegally smuggles exotic and endangered animals into Canada. He balances the film with his comic relief and deadpan face. Mia Kirshner and Elias

the very pregnant madam Zoe. All of the characters carry an enormous amount of emotional baggage. While deceiving each other and themselves, they hide

behind their masks and refuse to deal with the truth. Sensuously desensitized and emotionally blind, it is a film of strong contrasts and broken dreams. Music in the film is varied,with both classical and contemporary selections. Leonard Cohen’s haunting and mesmerizing tune “Everybody Knows” truthfully expresses our knowledge of life’s cruel realities, and their effect on the film’s characters. Shot almost entirely in shades of green, we feel like we’re submersed in an underwater jungle. Feelings of decay and rot frequently surface, while the outdoor scenes of lush fields breathe fresh air and a sense of space into their confused lives. Thomas says that the animals are hardier than we think. They can survive, while we might not. Exotica demands your undiWell thought vided attention. out, and another incredible film by Egoyan, the movie won the International Critics’ Prize at Cannes this May, and the City Award for Best Canadian Feature ,at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. Left with many unanswered questions to ponder, Exotica is a jungle of emotions.

To put this movie into proper perspective, one would have to change the title to “Francis Ford Coppola’s based on the Frankenstein, novel by Mary Shelley.” Unlike “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” which made a very graceful transition from book to screen, this version of Frankenstein is plagued with far too many liberchanges and creative ties. Now I won’t go so far as some other critics, who have paralleled the American ‘R’ rating for “Revolting,” because the movie only seems to work well for someone who has never read the book. Both of my viewing companions were rather pleased with Coppola and Kenneth Branaugh’s interpretation. I have read Shelley’s Frankenstein, and though my memory is years old, I did remember enough about the story tine to know what was different. Kenneth Branaugh, known best for his Shakespeare movies, stars as the misguided Victor von Frankenstein, who creates the now infamous monster, played by Robert De Niro. Helena Bonham Carter (Room With A View, Howards End) plays Elizabeth, adopted sister to Frankenstein, and (short-lived) wife. Adding to the above is Tom Hulce (Amadeus) who plays Frankenstein’s friend Clerval. Branaugh plays Frankenstein about the same way he plays any character created before 1900: a bit too heavy. That may go well with the Bard, but this ain’t Ham-

he last time 1 saw a show at the Warehouse, there were a bunch of youngsters doing the Scarborough Shuffle to a Manchester band with bad hairdos and inflated opinions of themselves. Not this time. Bad Religion will hit the stage for an all ages show next week, with special guests Supersuckers and Samiam, The spotlight will be on Bad Religion’s latest reIcase, Strurger than Fiction, but

let, Ken. Such as it is, you almost expect him to start yelling: “To be or not to be!” when his creation (De Niro) appears to be dead. De Niro is a bit more convincing as a reanimated jigsaw puzzle, once you get by the scene where Branaugh tries to get the nude De Niro (layered with foam latex) to

stand in a puddle of amniotic fluid - cum - K-Y Jelly. You can develop your own conclusions from here.... Carter’s character is from a Harlequin novel, suffice to say she’s annoying right up until she dies .,. the second time. By far the most surprising part of the whole movie is John Cleese. At first you won’t recognize him, he’s gained about twenty pounds, grown a white beard, matching shoulder-length hair and looks like he didn’t sleep for two days before each of his scenes. Don’t even consider that he might be funny, he doesn’t crack a smile. I don’t know how he got the

part, I only know that he seemed to overshadow Branaugh in every scene he spoke. Actors aside, the movie contains enough aspects of the original book to be recognizable. It would seem however, that Coppola and Branaugh had other things in mind when they created their own monster. For years Hollywood loved to have scientific junk, sparking and doing whatnot when Frankenstein came to life. Take thirty minutes, find and read the SINGLE PARAGRAPH in Shelley’s novel. Alas, neither Coppola or Bcanaugh did, and we see a continuation of this fable. Then we have the wrong people dying, or not dying, or never seen before. Elizabeth’s death is particularly gruesome, and I will only suggest this: whoever wrote the screenplay played Mortal Kombat too many times (Kano Wins Fatality!) But that doesn’t mean the changes were all bad. There were some that were quite gotid, adding twists that only prove that Coppola and Branaugh are more creative than Shelley (and if you believe that, you’ll agree that “Leonard Part 6” was a great drama). There were other changes that were unexplainable (Clerval dies in Shelley’s book, but survives the movie for some unknown purpose). In short, if you have to see this movie at all costs, go on a Tuesday. It’s rare nowadays to find a good $7.75 value, and this isn’t one of them. If you’ve read the book, wait until video chances are you won’t like it. And at all costs make sure you take either Gravol or wear a motion sickness band - Branaugh seems to love rotating camera shots.

expect some other tracks from former Epitaph releases (the latest album was on Atlantic), such as Recipe for Hate, Generator, Against the Gruin, etc. There were rumours about the show when it was first announced, saying that Green Day would be sharing the stage, but this seems unlikely since that band is playing C.N.E. on November 29th. Nonetheless, we can expect to see lots of kids that listen to both bands in the crowd, and technicolour hair and ripped tshirts or jeans will abound. This is the first time that Greg Graffin and the band has appeared in T.O. with the kind of exposure they have now, so the reception

they get should be interesting. Now that mainstream “alternative” radio stations are playing Bad Religion, although there are the near ritualistic cries of “sell-out!“, many more people get the opportunity to expose themselves to music like this (even Eddie Vedder was in the thankyou notes of Recipe for Hate.) Regardless of the audience, the show promises to be great. I heard haven’t Supersuckers in a long time, but I know that they had a certain following where I come Corn, and Samiam certainly has great listenability. Bad Religion will, without a doubt, be the highlight of the evening. If former reviews are anything to go by, we can look forward to good sound production and outstanding performante throughout the night. Do yourself a favour, and catch the show. If you can’t, don’t bother reading reviews in major newspapers run by “the Man,” since they won’t give you the true story of how the show goes (look at recent NOFX reviews in prominent papers, if you are sceptical). BAD Religion. GOOD. See.

I must admit that I’m getting a bit misty eyed about this review, for in fact it was the Cranes last effort, Forever, that was my very first piece published in these here Imprint pages. In that period of a year and a half or so, I feel that my writing has progressed, as I’ve pushed myself to try to hone my craft. Too bad the same can’t be said for the Cranes. This is proving to be a difficult album to review, since everything there is to say about this band was pretty much said in my last review. Once again we have Alison’s tortured childlike squeaky voice floating in and out of the mix, burbling on about depression and love and the like. Once again we have her band, minor keys and two chord patterns galore, chiming in with some beautiful melodies to suit the mood. Once again we have centuries-old paintings on the cover, and photos of the band looking ever so sullen and depressed. And pale, of course. They’re the last of the Goths really, that society of sun-hating, black-clad Bauhaus listeners that

almost everyone has met at one time in their lives. While the Mission and the Sisters languish in mediocrity and The Cure mutate into contented thirtysomethings, the Cranes doggedly carry on enjoying death and despair and rainy days and Mondays, so to speak. This is happy news to their fans, but as an artist it’s sort of a trap. Try to soften your sound, and you get accused of selling out, abandoning your roots, and so forth. Stay the way you are, and you can look forward to a career of treading water and being the Jonathan Richman of Goth. Forced to make some sort of comment, I’d say there is perhaps a bit more of a sense of melody on this release, especially on tracks like the delicate “Paris and Rome,” and the Julee Cruise-like “BeauBut really that’s tiful Friend.” about the only discernable progression. None of it is at all bad, in fact it’s rather good, but you get the unsettling impression that if this is all the Cranes can do, they are not going to last long. So what’s the verdict? Well it’s another good album, well produced, nice on the ears, and absolutely perfect for a dark rainy day, when it can be most affecting. Basically, if you liked the first two, you’re bound to like this one. Oh yeah....I’d have to say The Beatles were better...

bums. With different edits, live versions and instrumentals, this compilation signifies the uniqueness of a Canadian band that meant a lot to Canadian music. “I Am Here” is represented on a 7” edit as well as an 12” which doesn’t rise to the occasion on either edits. Personally, the album version does the song justice, as the uther edits just drag out a mediocre tune with too many bass beats and guitar innuendo. Fortunately classic tracks like “What Was Going Through My Head,” a live version of “Peace of Mind,” and an acoustic “0 Lucky Man” bring out some of the best on this album that the Grapes had to offer during their stint in the spotlight. Unfortunately, Canadian music isn’t a rccognizcd force in the music industry, but to us Canucks, knowing that talent exists in the realm of our backdoor is good enough. The Grapes of Wrath was not only a classic novel, but in the memories of many will remain to be a band that produced good, Canadian music.

by Sandy Atwai Imprintstaff Despite the clever title, Pisces Iscariot is exactly what it seems to be: a collection of outtakes, pisstakes and demos designed to cash in on the Pumpkins’ success. Ostensibly compiled under collecthe guise of a “rarities” tion, this CD could only be a rarities collection for those rather confused fans who have already gone out and bought all of the singles from the last album and yet haven’t bothered to track down the Pumpkins’ Peel Sessicrns album nor any of their early singles. These Johnny come latelys deserve what they get. The only truly must-have track here is “Blue” a track from the Lull e.p. and even then, it sounds like a watered-down demo of “I Am

Of the fourteen tracks, nine of them are b-sides from U.K. versions of singles which ultimately w should remain as b-sides, a nice little extra to the single. The problem is that if those initial singles are missing, the b-sides just don’t have the power to stand on their own. There is strength in numbers to a point, but quantity rarely makes up for quality. The only really cool thing on this album are the roughly typed liner notes which provide not only the lyrics to Corgan’s whinyi screamy lyrics but also some insight into how the track was rccorded etc. They do add a bit of interest to the songs, but, again, you can only dress up a piccc of shit so much - it’s still going to stink. I’m being a bit harsh, it’s not a complete piece of shit. The rare “La Dolly Vita” holds its own here, but it’s the exception to the rule, and both “Siamese Dream” and “Gish” are more worthy than this mess.

Aerosmith Rig ch1e3 c effen by Pat Merlihan Imprint staff Probably the biggest comcback band in the history of music, Aet-osmith arc more popular now, than with their first taste of fame in the early 70’s. Ending a bout with drugs and alcohol has proven to enhance the band as a whole, and since Permuent Vucation Aerosmith have cxccllcd with numerous top 10 hits. Big On43 is an amalgamation of their biggest hits since Permanent vrrcution up to Get A Grip. From the sexual ovcrtoncs of “Love in an Elevator” to the tear jerkers of* “Amazing,” “Crazy,” and “Angel” Big Onm is sure to satisfy Acrosmith fans. However, Acrosmith fans won’t want to buy this because they already have the hits in their Only die-hards, and collection. those that don’t own a single Acrosmith album may want this col\cction. Chly tiV0 previously unreleased tracks arc offered to fans, and for what thcy’rc worth, i’vc hoard it all before. Acrosmith is a band that hasn’t produced anything new to

the musical world. They continuously slap togcthcr made-for-classic-rock-radio-music that is uninspiring, but is catchy enough for classic rock dinos to buy up. It is sad that old-timers like Tyler and Perry haven’t gone in a totally different direction, and possibly use their influence to move people into different genrcs of rock. Tyler’s been quoted saying “...I don’t want to put something out if it’s not risky. Fear no art, you know.” 1 don’t know what is so risky about the music they’ve been producing for years? The hits of Aerosmith are undoubtedly hits (the people have spoken,) but without change, I’m afraid that Aerosmith will be left in the dust unless they can rise to the occasion to do something that hasn’t been done. Personally, waiting will be futile; Aerosmith is a classic rock band that will produce just that, classic rock. Quite possibly they’ll be the leaders in the Classic Rock Hall of Fame with The Band, Jethro Tull, and The Eagles. Unlike The

Before seeing the cassette cover, I was momentarily thrilled. A new Jane Siberry album! I thought. l was quickly disillusioned, however. It was not new, it was a collection. I had thought Jane was above this sort of cammercialism. Beyond that criticism, this is an excellent album. A Collection is a selection of songs from Siberry’s first four al bums, No Borders Here, Speckless sky, Tile W&king, and Bolinn by the Beard@. Nothing appears, however, from her Iatest album, When I wus II: Boy. Generally speaking, this is your typical “Best of...” type album. Naturally it contains her three hits, the ones that got all the airplay: “Mimi on the Beach,” “One More Colour,” and “Map of the World (Part II).” Not to put these down, mind you, they are great songs ( though some complain of hearing “Mimi” once too many times). Sometimes it’s nice, to be able to sit down and listen to all your favcs without having to get up and change tapes. A Collection does a very good job of covering all the musical stylings that are Jane Siberry. From the child-like whimsy of “Waitress” and “Miss Punta Blanca,” to the quiet introspection of “Seven Steps to the Wall” and “The Taxi Ride,” to the surreal beauty of “The Walking (and constantly)” and “The Life is the Red Wagon.” It’s all there.

by Pat Merlihan Imprintstaff In the same spirit as Rent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails, PWEI continues the legacy of the label to establish popular alternative music that offers different dimensions to what is currently circulating. This U.K. alternative is a definite mind-fuck if you’re prepared to accept a Iine of industrial hip hop, funk grooves that arc aggressively thrust upon. If not fuck off and die. For those capable to expand their minds with a combination of UK hip hop and heavy aggressive guitars the latest PWEI will be a welcome treat. We’re not talking hip hop jams with rhymes that are “phat,” dissing that is “bad,” or bass lines with “boombastic” impact. P WE1

offers an alternative hip hop that can be appreciative to those not necessarily interested in black ghetto rap. Contrastly to black-man-rap, PWET offers lyrics with techno ciements that don’t speak about injustice, Malcom X, or cop killers. Instead, band members speak

For those that are marginal fans perhaps the Almagamation EP would be a welcome starter. Featuring 7 extended mixes from DOS Dedus Mis Amigos, (Spanish for Two Fingers, My Friends,) a healthy EP indeed. In fact I would highly recommend the EP as it includes extended singles and rounds out with forty mil nutes and half the price compar *ed to the forty-six minutes on the album.

Even better is the second track “The Trickster” that is initially catchy with its guitar hooks and vocaIs. “Lewis (mistreated)” is another exceptional tune that uses the guitar to guide the vocals, and treats the listener to an experience that only Radiohead will unfold. “Per-manent daylight” offers distorted vocals to driving guitars that capitulate the listener with intense enthusiasm. “You Never Wash Up After Yourself’ is a beautiful acoustic piece that brings Canada’s Sloan to mind briefly when hearing the minute and a half song. Just entailing over I7 minutes, Radiohead have a good EP that is hopefully a primer for what is to come in January.

of a classic folk song “Hole in the Bucket”. Unfortunately, one of the lowest moments on the album occurs during relatively popular Cracker’s song “I Want Everything”. This proves to be an incredibly slow and boring track that can easily by skipped over with modem day CD technology. Moving on to bigger and better things comes one of Canada’s youngest but perhaps best known acts Moist, who exhibit one of their finest lyrical verses in “Freaky Be Beautiful.” Blur is still unable to live up to their semi acheived popularity. Evidence of how weak this band is on song writing comes from their sub par performance of “Parklife.” Mazzy Star’s “Blue Light” is an excellent addition to this compilation, allowing the listener to get in touch with a much more calm and IpeacefUl side. Albums that feature various artists have songs which are not as good as others; this album is no exception. But masked behind the intense powerful songs, it’s hard to even notice the shitty music that is bound to crop up. Scoop This Tuo! is a step in the right direction and if last year was any indication then we should be seeing a couple of these bands skyrocket into success in the near future. Not many underground compilation albums feature such energetic performances, thus SCUO~ This Too! is a surprisingly intact album.
