Despite last-place finishes with the Co-op voters and in Optometry (where he received 1 vote), Suska came a strong first in Arts and especially in AHS, where he took 187 votes out of a total of 277 ballots cast.

CASA’s founding members debated a lot of issues before fuxhzing the constitution. Other than the focus of the organization, Bilingualism, intellectual property and membership were all discussed,

On the bilingual issue,it was decided that all meetings would

be conducted in both official languages, but that information provided to specific schools could be provided in the language of that school’s choice, so as to eliminate the costs of producing everything twice, while not excluding schools that operate in French. Currently though, there is little demand for French. The only school with any significant French population in CASA is the University of Ottawa, and only one member is located in Quebec; McGill, which is primarily english. CASA has already made attempts to stir up more interest in itself in Quebec but with little success. Currently, many universities in that province are dealing

with separatist issues,and so are not presently interested in a national organization. The final budget has not been set, so the exact cost to the Federation of Students has not been determined, though President Codrington expects a figure of approximately $15,000 annually.

OUSA YES referendum by Tasha

Imprint staff

T

he Ontario University Stu dent Alliance (OUSA) now represents the University of Waterloo student body with its direct consent. The referendum that was held this week on whether or not to maintain OUSA as the provin. cial voice for the UW student body won with a 42% margin. Sixty-seven percent of the students who voted were in favour of OUSA, while 25% did not want to continue with OUSA. Only 18% of the eligible students voted. No one was surprised by the outcome of the referendum. Even Brian Smyth, organizer of the last minute NO campaign admitted that he expected the YES side to win. “All things considered, I think it could have gone the other way if we had started [campaignstated Smyth. “We ing] earlier,” didn’t have area1 campaign, we just put up posters for one day.” He added that there was not nearly as much information available for the NO side.

Glen Rutland of the YES side had been confident that OUSA would prevail as the provincial student voice for UW before the results were announced. He was pleasantly surprised, however, that OUSA has been voted in by all faculties. He had anticipated that the Faculties of Environmental

Studies, Independent Studies and possibly Arts would vote against OUSA. These faculties have supported the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) in the past. “We did not have an aggressive campaign,” Rutland emphasised. “We didn’t want to go over-

wins board on it.” Rutland did not feel that it was necessary to campaign heavily because there was no NO side until the middle of the campaigning week. The first traces of a NO side was a meeting organized by the International Socialists on Wednesday, February 8. Both Yes to OUSA posters and Federation of Students executive campaigning posters were defaced by NO stickers. No one has claimed responsibility for this action, Rutland felt that this was distasteful, because it invalved the candidates in the issue by adding it on the posters. OUSA has represented the UW’s students since 1992, after a referendum which overthrew the Canadian Federation of Students. Mike Bums, Executive Director of OUSA, explained that in OUSA’s constitution, student leaders can chose to maintain OUSA without a referendum. “It should be easy to get in [to OUSA] and easy to get out,” said Bums.

The research is in “concurrency” or “concurrent programming” used with computcrs that are capable of “parallel processing.” One way to get computers to run faster is to break the work they do into small batches, each handled by a scparatc computing or proccssing unit (CPU). If these scparatc CPUs run “paralIc1” to each other, they can get through the work much faster than a single unit handling the same amount ofwork in a linear or “sequential” manner. Thus concurrent processing can mean much faster computing.

moving images on our TV screens. Many computers in the business and scientific worlds already have two, four or more CPUs. Inevitably, this technology will become available for personal computers. UW’s Computer Science departmcnt has a lengthy history of research in parallel computing involving, in the past, such rcsearchers as Neil Ostland (widely rcspccted as a parallel processing architect), Morvcn Gentleman, Mike Malcolm, David Cheriton and others. These individuals laid the groundwork for distributed concurrency, and an extremely complex form of concurrency involving time constraints, called rcaltime. For example, the CPU that controls the firingofthe spark plugs in a car’s engine cannot be permitted to slow down because the driver

also asks it to control the rolling down of a window. Real-time programs must guarantee that certain vital things happen on time, regardless of the other things with which the computer may be involved. However, the big problem with parallel processing today is not so much with the hardware - the

to users all over the world. At the moment, hundreds of Internet subscribers are using it, including rcsearchers at both CERN and Fermi Labs (the two largest particle accelerators in the world), who have to process vast amounts of data rapidly. “They are using it to solve problems for whit h a computer with a single CPU would simply be too slow,” Buhr says. “My software makes their job easier.” He also says an Ontario software company, currently using the concurrency Iibrary, is finding that it gives them a definite edge in the marketplace, helping them out-perform their competitors. “So it really is cutting-edge stuff,” Buhr notes. “But we are just at the beginning in terms of moving it into the marketplace, as lots of companies are currently showing interest in it.” He feels his library is starting to attract attention because it makes it easier for others to write their concurrency applications. He has several projects under way in this area. “We are constantly updating,” Buhr says. “We started about seven years ago.” Teaching concurrency is complex. “First, our students need training in how to understand and attack problems,” Buhr says. “Then they need to be able to look at a problem, decide if concurrency is applicable and if so, the best way to get the most out of the CPUs available.” “Debugging*’ is an important part of all computer programming, but it is especially difficult in concurrent programming. Two other Computer Science professors, David Taylor and Jay Black, work with Buhr in this area. Two ma-jar problems concurrent programmers must deal with are: live-lock and dead-lock. The former happens when the individual CPUs waste time arguing over who should proceed next; the latter occurs whenoneprocessingunit needs something that another one possesses, and vice versa, yet neither will give up what it has. “It’s diffjcult to debug a concurrent program because it’s hard to tell what’s happening,“says Buhr. “When you run a concurrent program you may find your program is running only about half as fast as you expected, but it’s hard to tell what’s causing the slowness.” Finding out why programs fail, or why they don’t run as well as expected, is extremely complex. A programmer can’t see what’s happening inside each CPU. One possible solution is to build tools into the package that provide the user with some form of visual inspection of the program as it runs. Buhr is developing a set of visuaIization tools which indicate where something may be snarling a concurrent program. “It’s like opening a window into the computer while the program is running,” he explains. “You can actually see how the program is working or where it’s going wrong. You can then decide what needs to be changed, make the change, and stop it again later and cheek to see how effective the change is.” “The more of these diagnostic tools we can come up with, the easier it will be for students to Iearn concurrent programming, and they will also enjoy it better.”

Greetings, and welcome to “hump week, ” that time of the term when all professors make all midterms and essays due so you’re too tired to plan for Reading Week

of the largest organizations in the province. Uncovering a large, rarely tapped job market, this guide is focused on helping students become better prepared for their j ob search, especially by giving job-seekers an understanding of what companies look for in a potential candidate. The Guide is published by The Student Employment Netwdrk, a company operated by students and recent graduates who are concerned with the high unemployment rates for students. Even in today’s ‘information age’, there exists a large communication gap between what students expect and what companies arc willing to offer. The 1995 Guide attempts to remedy this with precise information, provided by the companies themselves, on exactly what is out there. The Guide offers profiles of over 200 companies with each profile offering a brief description of the company, the academic fields students are most likely to be hired from, what skills the company is looking for in a new employee, potential positions that a student

could expect to work in, starting salary, company benefits, possible part time/summer employment, and the address and contact person for each company. The companies profiled are from 27 different sectors of the economy, ranging from banks, legal and accounting firms, and insurance companies to engineering, aerospace and high tech companies, to telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, forestry and food manufacturers. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are it’s in here. Unemployment for students is a serious problem. Statistics from the end of 1994 show an increase in the unemployment rate for those between 15 and 24, to 16.5% from 15.8% earlier in the year. Also, university graduates, who have previously enjoyed low unemployment rates, have had to adjust to rates of 9.4%, an almost 50% increase from just a few years ago. Clear andeasy to read, the 371 page Guide is available at the UW bookstore for $17.99, or by calling 1-800-402-4059.

Students and administrators from both UW and WLU attended, as well as campus and regional police officers, city planners and campus safety officers. Officer Tom Nageleisen from the Waterloo Regional police noted that there had been 16 reported assaults in the UW/ WLU area since January 1994, five of w hich have been acquaintance rape. Ofthe 11 other attacks, five have resulted in convictions, in three others there was not enough evidence to lay charges, and three victims were able to successfully fight off their attackers.

- Gerry Conlon will be making a public appearance at the Ontario Institute for Studies and Education (OISE) Auditorium, 252 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at 7:30 p.m. on February 23. Gerry Conlon and three of his friends (the “Guildford Four”) were arrested in 1974 after the Irish Republican Army bombed public houses in Guiidford and Woolwich, England. Seven people died in the bombings and 92 were injured. The defendants were convicted solely on the basis of their own uncorroborated confessions. There was no forensic, exhibit or identification evidence in the case. The four persistently claimed that they were innocent and that they signed confessions under duress while held incommunicado by the police. They alleged that during interrogation they had been ill-trcatcd, threatened with violence and deprived of sleep and food. They were denied access to lawyers. They were all convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1975 with the trial judge commenting: “Had capital punishment been in force, you would have been executed.” Appeals against the convictions proved unsuccessful even after members of an IRA celI claimed responsibility for the bombings. The IRA itself stated that the Guildford

This group, known, as the Maguire Seven, was convicted in 1974 of possessing and handling explosives on the basis of forensic evidence and sentented to between five and fourteen years. Like the Guildford Four, the Maguire Seven protested their innocence. Guiseppe Conlon died in prison

They alleged that during interrogation they had been ill-treated, threatened with violence and deprived of sleep and food. They were denied access to kwyers. suggesting police officers had fabricated confessions, After their release it was alleged that evidence pointing to the innocence of the Guildford Four had been available at the time of their trial in 1975 and had never been given to defence lawyers. The most startling evidence was confirmation that alibi evidence for Conlon had been in the possession of three prosecution lawyers. They were responsible for advising the Director of Public Prosecutions

Presidential committee wants input Progress Report from the Presidential Commission 0n Xnstitutional Planning, February 1, 1995 [Editor’s note: the text has been edited for brevily. The fuU text is muilable frnm the Commissl’un.]

In light of the quickening pace and unsettling nature of change in the academic environment, the President appointed the Commission “to re-examine our ends and means as a university.” The objective is a new plan for institutional development. 1.1 Terms of Reference from the Pmsiden t The Commission will produce periodic reports for Senate Long Range Planning Committee and for the greater university community. The Commission will produce a comprehensive Draft Plan for institutional development at UW, The Commission will subsequently revise the Draft Plan and then present it to the Senate Long Range Planning Committee for review. 1.2 Membership of the Cummission on rnstitutiuna1

PhIZing The President invited suggestions regarding membership from a variety of groups, including the Senate Long Range Planning Committee, student and employee associations, the executive of the National Alumni Council, and the Executive Council. The fourteen members include faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students, and an alumna. 1.3 Progress

to date

The Commission has met weekly since September 1994 to discuss issues rclcvant to the University’s future. We examined earlier University of Waterloo plans and plans from other universities, and met with representatives of the University of Guelph and the KitchenerWaterloo Hospital to learn from their experiences. We asked the community to comment on the university mission statement, present in the 1987 report Planning for the Fourth Decade.

2.1 A Participatory and Consultative Process The Commission wishes to encourage participation and consultation with individuals and groups, review other UW planning initiatives and reports, and those who influence, or are influencedby UW activities, such as alumnae, other institutions, and employers. 2.2 An Iterative Process We intend the planning process to stimulate creative and innovative responses, which may result in conflicting suggestions. We wish to mwe

in order opinions

through

an iterative

process

to acknowledge diverse in final documents.

2.3 Communication The Commission will communicate

regularly in campus media (Imprint, Gazette, UWinfi) and through liaison with working groups and committees. Direct submissions can be made at any time to any member of the Commission. 2.4 Upemess and Confidentiality Our goal is an open and inclusive process. Working group reports to the Commission will be made public with the Commission’s Draft Plan. Individual wishes to speak to the Commission or its working groups in confidence will be respected. 2.5 Accountability The Commission was appointed by and is accountable to the President. Proposals developed by the Commission will require approval through established decisionmaking bodies.

and Strategy Iden tiflca tion Before developing a Draft Plan, we need to identify opportunities and threats to be faced at the University.

the University. Early in 1996, we hope to present a revised institutional plan to the Senate Long Range Planning Committee for review before submission to the Senate and the Board of Governors.

This group will report on distance education, professional development and upgrading courses, noncredit activity, and special part- time programs.

This group will look at the strengths and weaknesses of co-operative education. It will also look at job placements, co-op and academic conflicts, resource management, possible expansions, computerization, and external competition.

and

This group will look at undergraduate teaching, including course delivery formats, technology issues, curriculum, resource sharing, hiring practices, and students.

This group will look at issues related to research and graduate studies, including foreign student issues, funding, demographic trends, teacher training, intellectual property rights, ethics in research and supervision, faculty evaluation, part-time studies, research infrastructure, and resources.

3.1 Issue

3.2 Working Groups We are establishing small working groups to conduct an analysis ofthe strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for specific areas of the University. Working groups will consult extensively with those involved and develop recommendations for a vision for the area in five’to ten years. Final reports will be submitted to the Commission by May 1995,

This group looks at the university’s international activities, including organization, curriculum, exchange

If you are interested in helping out or providing information, the following people can direct you. All consultations are private and confidential.

Five working groups have been established: 0 co-operative education Cl continuing education 0 undergraduate teaching and learning D research and graduate studies D international connections Other working groups may be established to investigate the following themes: 0 quality of life and human resources Cl deployment of computer technology Cl governance Cl support services 0 physical resources 0 external partnerships 3.3 Other Consult&m Individuals and groups may aid working groups by offering their insights on the issues being considered. We also invite any member of the University to convey their suggestions and comments on the planning process itself. 3.4 Timetable for Future Activities Five working groups are established, and more will be defined in February. The working groups will report to the Commission by May. We will then write a final report defining our mission and vision for the future, recommending strategies for achieving goals, and suggesting indicators for measuring our progress.

fter the initial high of winning an election is over, facing one’s future job can be a daunting and intimidating prospect. Many of the Federation of Students candidates expressed an utterly overwhelming sense of relief after the campaigning period was over. Now, three of them have a year of difficult and demanding work ahead of them. The stress they have experienced over the last few weeks will be nothing compared to the year of decision-making and leadership that will soon be thrust upon them. Jane, Mike and Rose will learn a valuable lesson over the next twelve months. They will learn the difference between theory and practice. All three will learn that one’s ideals, no matter how strongly they are held, no matter how strongly one bclieves in them, can and will be compromised in the coming year. Time constraints, university bureaucracy, differences of opinion, timeconsuming meetings and bull-headed student council members will conspire to suck up all of the time and all of the funds that this new executive can get their hands on. This is not to say that the PakSuska-Bilicic team won’t be able to do a good job. This is simply to say that they will have a formidable learning curve to climb before they know the ropes well enough to enact any of their plans. Should anyone doubt this, simply take a look at our current premier Bob Rae. His party was elected on a platform of change - of radical change. Today, both labour and environmental groups have publicly abandoned him, and he sits as low in the polls as is politically possible. This is partly his fault, and partly the fault of the grqups that supported him. It was impossibIe for him to have succeeded on his platform harsh economic realities are impossible to predict, and because he believed in his policies too much. Politics is the art of compromise. There are as many ways of doing something “right” as there are free-thinking individuals. One must try never to commit to a specific well-detailed set of plans, since by the time they have gone through the wringer of review committees, budget analysts and the usual naysayers, the resulting project may bear only a passing resemblance to the initial ideal. While it may be true that the Federation of Students don’t have to deal with anywhere near the same stress levels of a provincial or federal politician, the frustration exists all the same. As painful as all of this may seem, it is a very, very valuable lesson to learn, and many people (known as “idiots”) fail to grasp this concept. Is this to say that politics is an inherently amoral profession? Well... as much as it pains me to say this, no. There are many politicians whom I admire, but it is not so much their personal beliefs which I respect, but rather their approach to solving the problems that they face. As cliched as this may sound, keeping true to your ideals has to do with how you face your problems, not what specific plans you come up wilh. From job to job and task to task, one’s schemes will change; hopefully, the ideals that guide those plans wil1 not. your plans are guided by what you believe in.

ReadingWeeksucks W

‘e all get next week off, and I’m bitter about it. You should be too - February’s reading week is a

royal

pain. In general, the concept ofa reading week is great. Waving five days free from classes and deadlines to catch up on your assignments or to spend enormous amounts of money in foreign places while drinking great quantities of alcohol sounds nice. The problem is that reading week is at the wrong time. Who the hell needs the break at the end of February? You can’t use the time for studying or any other bullshit noble cause, because either your midterms are done by then, or you’ve already had so many the last thing you want to do is think. The only remaining use of a reading week is to travel and get pissed, which is the problem. I would love to have a week to do nothing. But I don’t need it in February. The end of March, when late assignments and essays, crammed midterms, and the stress of life have reduced my brain to sludge - now t/&s when I need the break. In February, taking a week off shuts my motivation down for three weeks. Obviously, I don’t do shit during the week. Who does, other than those keeners who don’t even need a reading week because they’re all caught up? I can’t afford to travel (or even drink much), so I basically vegetate, and feel vaguely guilty for not being productive. I also usually waste

time motivating myself the week back. My brain likes not having to think far too much to get back to work after a fortnight’s rest. Which is really too bad. At the present moment I’m several essays behind, and my profs, good-hearted people that they are, really do want them in soon, even though I work for Imprint, etcetera etcetera. The day back from this reading week I have another essay, a seminar, and a midterm. What I really need is three or four reading weeks, or nothing at all. Screw this teaser of just five days in the middle of the term. At least with

no break, panic will set in and 1 might get something accomplished. Besides, who can afford to do anything during reading week? My affluent times are at the beginning and end of the term. In January, I have more money than I need, or so I always seem to think, and I could justify $695 for a week in Cancun. At the end of the term, I don’t care about saving money, and will beg, borrow, and steal what I need to go somewhere. In February, reality has begun to assert itself, and I know that spending more than my allotted $45 a week for food and the few beers

tion. Instead, my rich bastard friends take off on road trips (without me!) while I lurk about the1mprintoffice pretending that 1 have a life and being pissed that I’m not the one carous-

ing in Quebec. The reading weeks aren’t even coordinated between universities, so you can’t cheaply visit friends and Iive off their generosity. When you’re free they’ve got classes, and vice versa (which saves you the expense of having to put them up when they come to freeload off you, one must admit). Reading week should be moved to the beginning of the term, when people can waste their time with abandon and money, or to the end of the term, when people actually could use the time to relax. After all, there’s a lot to be said for a week off before exams. You get to fmd people to steal notes from, finish :your essays (or copy engineering lab assignmerits, or whatever the fuck it is that the other faculties do), and maybe even study. And if you don’t have any exams (or ones worth studying for), you at least get the bene:fit of a slack week just when your brain is turning to mush. I’m sure that I wouldn’t hate having reading week in February so much if I had money, was caught up on my work, could concentrate, or didn’t care about my academic career going down the toilet. Unfortunately, none of the above really applies (my academic career is going down the toilet and I kinda do care, I procrastinate to the point of abandon, and I’m broke), and I can only come to the conclusion that a February reading week sucks. My sole consolalion is that whenever I get aruund

Vegetarians beware On Tuesday, January 3 1,19Y 5, I strolled down to the Burt Mathews Hall snack bar for lunch. Being a vegetarian, I was surprised that there was actually what appeared to be a vegetarian offering: “vegetable soup.” Being a vegetarian, T asked the attendant if the soup contained any dairy or meat. She said no. As I was finishing the soup, I noticed bits of chicken on the bottom. Needless to say, I was outraged and immediately informed the attendant. She said she was sorry and that nobody had told her there was meat in the soup. However, I feel the attendant did not understand the full implications of her mistake. Although I was sick to my stomach (I had not comsumed meat in over four years) I am sure that the situation would be far more serious for somebody with allergies or religious beliefs. My intent is not to defame UW food services they have always provided friendly service to me - but to raise awareness and sensitivity towards food selcctivi ty. P.S. I believe that the next Imprint should contain a “secret consumer” activity for people interested in “testing” food selectivity services. For those that are interested in vegetarianism and these type of issues, peoplc are welcome to join the vegetarian club (contact: cjdavies@hoporoo). -

ple who said the earth is round were burned alive for ‘disrespecting and insulting’ a certain religious institution who held a wrong belief about the same topic. I hope you can see that it is not disrespectful to discuss things rationally and politely. We should try to make our perception ofthe truth correct rather than try to make the truth conform to our (mis)perception. Finally, Mr. Rob Jaster accuses the column of neglecting the ‘context’ in which certain ‘texts’ are quoted. I would like to put up this one question : Is not it mentioned in the Old/New Testament that God created the heavens and earth in six days and needed a rest on the seventh day? that God regretted doing certain actions? that God walked through a garden? that He fought with a man? In what context, if any, can these things can be understood with out giving God a not-socomplete image? -

across with respect to responsible drinking and taking responsibility for your actions. As well, 1 believe that BACCHUS is an important organization that provides a much needed service. The problem that I have is that you seem to have-the perception that things like that do not go on within a university setting. I am afraid that this is an undeniable truth of undergraduate life. I could toss a rock into almost any undergraduate classroom and bounce it off the head of several people who have “gotten cranked” within the last week or so. Hey, when I was there, I occasionallly did exactly the same thing. Perhaps this is why I can identify with the point Shane was trying to make. I also think that your attack on Shane as a person was not justified. Perhaps you do not agree with the concept of overindulging once in a while, but I see no reason for your personal attack on him. I have talked with Shane on several occasions and he is not the out-of-control, shameless piss-tank that you try to make him out to be. What I do think is that he is a good guy who is not afraid to stand up in front of a room full of people and say the truth -- that being able to go out to the Bombshelter and have a beer (or two) is not necessarily a bad thing. Now I am not sure whether this article of yours was personal or stems from your association with BACCHUS. I must admit the timing was perfect with respect to the upcoming elections. Perhaps we subscribe to one of the other candidates running u for Federation president, hmmm?

The Qur’an Speaks speaks again

by Jeff Couckuyt, Pete Nesbitt, and Pat Spacek

To the Editor, This letter is a reply to three separate letters that appeared in Imprint last week (Feb. 10). I can start with Mr. John Tran, who see Muslims and Christians ‘cut each other’s throats by the pen’ .+.‘referring to those books written by men’ and so forth. Just to set the record clear, there wasn’t any throat cutting by the pen. In all fairness, no one can call a polite discussioi about something as important as God a fight or war! Otherwise, John’s own article would be ‘an assault on all God believing humans’! As for the Qur’an, it is not the word of humans (single or many men), and if anyone disputes this, then s/he should produce the like of the Qur’an. Also, Mr. Tran and everyone else should ask themselves these questions: ‘What is God?’ ‘Why God?’ ‘What is the purpose of believing in God?’ before trying to ‘define’ what is God or religion to ourselves and others. Otherwise we will all be worshipping ourselves! That will be our God, and believe me that won’t make us more tolerant either. Just a reminder, the greatest wars in the human history were the result of these ‘human Gods’ (e.g. WWII where 40+ million people died because of an insane man’s desire to be a ‘god’). Then there is Ms. Shahina Mapara’s letter in which she accuses me and The Qur’un Speuks of being disrespectful and insulting. Again, in no way are we trying to be insulting or disrespectful to anyone. However, I think some people have the misconception that if one discusses any idea/belief and shows the flaws or limitations ofthat idea or belief, then s/he is being disrespectful and insulting. This happened before, where peo-

Epps -

& Mamet

To the Editor, Jennifer Epps’ review of Olemna entitled “Sexual Harassment 101” IFeb.3, Imprint] begins with a resolution to never let people tell her what to think, but she proceeds to go straight ahead and tell us what to think of David Mamet’s play. She outlines the play in less than a paragraph, conveniently leaving out those portions of the play that do not support her particular view. Epps seems outraged at the poor treatment political correctness has gotten at the hands of Mamet. To outline the play again: A concerned professor brings a student to his office to discuss her problems in understanding his course. Ironically, the course is concerned with the artificial structure of the educational system: specifically, the unfair power the teacher holds in the teacher-student relationship. Barriers are slowly broken down and the two expose themselves for what they are, what we all are, imperfect human beings. John, the professor, admits to the cynicism he holds towards the system which pays his mortgage. Carol, the student, confides her fears that she isn’t good enough to be in school. Miscommunication and misunderstandings comprise the dialogue. John, on one hand is asking for an honest, open, oneto-one discussion while he maintaining the position ofauthority. Carol becomes enraged and confused by this paradox of what he says and the reality of his actions. Later, he realizes his error and attempts to reopen lines of communication by consoling Carol that he too has felt the same way. Outside interruptions disturb both and eventually lead to a complete communication breakdown In the next scene the tables are turned: Carol returns in the position of power. John has been charged with sexual harassment; specific key phrases taken out of context are used to convict him of improper behaviour. His chances at tenure are destroyed. The play ends violently. Carol is horribly beaten by John in a fit of rage. Obviously, John’s actions are as inexcusable as they are unjustifiable. It’s also true that Mamet doesn’t explore the implications of feminist theory by giving them equal airtime but I don’t think that’s really the point. There’s the question of power, its dangers, and how power destroys the relationships between people and replaces it with proper procedure and political correctness. Epps charges Mamet with taking fcminist concepts “out of any rational context” but then immediately does the same to him. In the finest traditions ofsensational joumalism she states that, “Elsewhere,” wherever that may be, “Mamet has referred to politics as ‘the last refuge of the unimaginative.“’ She then goes on an irrational rampage implying that Mamet must therefore not value artists such as Dickens, Shaw or Brecht! Further, she seems to align the political correctness movement (which is, I suppose, an incontestably ‘correct’ idea) with such valid causes as “women’s rights, civil rights, gay rights, children’s rights, the rights of the elderly, the rights of the poor...” Apparently, while no one can tell Epps how to think there is no problem with her telling us what is right. Finally, and perhaps most ironically, she states that, “Mamet wants us to leave ancient wrongs in the past.” Again though, I have to disagree. Mamet’s play has brought the issues to light, perhaps not in the most flattering of lights, but it has sparked discussion. I fail to see how apiece ofart thit challenges us to question the validity of beliefs leaves “ancient wrongs in the vast.” - even if it is politically incorrect. (Jdr

The best thing to be cherished in the hearts is faith and conviction; doubt is part of infidelity. “Impatient wailing and tilsome praise of the dead is an act of ignorance. Betrayal leads one to the fire of Hell. Drinking amounts to burning. Obscene poetry is the work of the Devil. Wine (alcohol) is the mother of evils. The worst thing eaten is one which belongs to the orphan. Blessed is he who recieves adrnonition from others. “Each one of you must resort to a place of four cubits (the grave). Your affairs will be decided ultimately in the next life. The worst dream is the false dream. Whatever is in store is near. To abuse a believer is transgression. Raising arms against him is infidelity. To backbite him is a disobedience to Allah. Inviolability and sacredness of his property is like that of his blood. He who swears by Allah (falsely), in fact falsifies him. He who pardons is himself granted pardon. He who forgives others, is forgiven by Allah for his sins. “He who represses anger, Allah rewards him. He who faces misfortunes with perseverence, Allah compensates him. He who acts only for fame and reputation, Allah disgraces him. He who shows patience and forbearance, Allah gives him a double reward. He who disobeys Allah, Allah chastises him. I seek the forgiveness of Allah (three times).

Science Society Election

Every year, Planned Parenthood faces a vote to see if councillors will channel $3,200 from the regional health budget into operating funds for the organization. At the last council meeting, the Waterloo Regional Council voted against funding the local branch due to pressures from anti-choice activists in the area. Planned Parenthood provides judgemen&free education and counselling about birth control, abortion, and sexually transmitted a’diseases including HIV and AIDS. They provide confidential counselling on a drop-in basis. There is a statement in here somewhere. Why do anti-choice activists wish to deny community members the right to educate themselves about sex and reproduction? Perhaps there’s a fear that if we make this type of information too readily available, there will be an increase in unwanted pregnancies and an increase in abortions. Fear doesn’t help anyone; education does. Women and men should have the opportunity to control their own destinies, to make their own choices. With fewer places to go to discover information about sexually transmitted diseases, birth control, and abortion, individuals faced with difficult decisions alone, with fear or embarrassment. Maybe this is an isolated incident. Maybe this is just one organization in a community with many other organizations to fill this need. Maybe not. Julie Cole, Vice President of University Affairs, has written a letter to Councillor Joan McKinnon expressing her ‘disappointment and shock’ at the decision made by the Wa-

Cole writes “the services provided by Planned Parenthood1 are invaluable... As students, we are also discouraged because we feel that politicians will ignore our voices, since we are not recognized as potential voters. Waterloo students are a part of this community and as community members, our voices must be heard.” Frustration levels tend to rise when citizens feel that their concerns, or interests do not warrant a reaction from elected politicians.

round the world, it’s the same sight. On the eve of 1 lRamad&, half a million Candian Muslims scan the skies to sight the New MoonThere’s suspense in the air. The mullah sits by the phone, waiting to announce the sighting and to declare the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan. This kind of suspense adds to the fcrvour of Islam. Ramadan, which began on February 1, is the month in which Muslims observe obfigatory fasting. During Ramadan some Muslims stay awake until the small hours of the moming to partake ofs&zv, a breakfast catcn before dawn. Fasting is performed by rich and poor, and Ramadan brings much joy and happiness. Special dishes and delicacics arc prepared to break the fast at sunset and ncighbourscxchangcdishcsasagcsturc of goodwill to all. Thus Ramadan is known as the month of bounty and generosity. It is the month of magnanimity and charity. Many rich <people give generously to the poor, while others invited the poor to join them at @ar, the main meal to break the fast at sundown. The obligat )ry charity, Zakut, is mostly offerct during thismonth. Muslims are ret uired to give onefortieth (or 2% per cent) of their annua1 income to the poor and needy. Muslims be licvc fastingpurgcs the spirit and revitalizes the body. Prophet Muhammad said: “Fast and be healthy. It encourages will power, fosters hope, promotes faith and implants self-confidence. It brings about humility, sympathy with the poor, and encourages generosity.” The Koran says: “0 ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed. to those before you, that ye may learn selfrestraint - fasting for a fixed number ofdays;butifanyofyouisifl,oron a journey, the prescribed number should be made up from days later. For those who can do it (with hardship), is a ransom: the feeding of one that is indigent, but he that will give more, of his own free will - it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew.” The principle of self-denia1 by fasting is not unique to Islam. Muhammad called upon his fol-_---_

to fast, following

the exam-

ple of devout Jews and Christians whom he knew. He set aside the month of Kamadan for this pur-

pose, we’re told, because at its end comes the “Night of Power”, the night in which he received his first revelation. Fasting is observed every day from sunrise to sunset, beginning as soon as “you can discern a white thread from a black one.” One may take neither food nor drink nor may he smoke. Each Muslim should re-

cite the entire Koran during the month. To make this easier it is divided into portions for each day. During Ramadan the faithful spend as much time as possible in the mosque, to “glorify God for His goodness and be grateful.” * In mocc than three dozen predominately Muslim countries, fanterns are hung from the tops of minarets and the lamps inside the mosques commemorates Muhammad’s cnlightcnment on the Night of Power.

At sunset the well-to-do often give large parties, remembering with gratitude that “God would make the fast an east, not a difficulty.” Ramadan is a shifting month, coming sometimes in the winter, sometimes in the summer. When the days are short and cool, the fast is no great hardship, for the meal of dawn is made generous and the break of fast at sunset is the more welcome because of the long wait. But when the sun pours down hot and rclcntless through a long summer day and the whole body is

parched with thirst, the self-discipline involved in not taking even a drink of water is a genuine act of devotion. Muslims believe Ramadan trains in self-discipline. It quiets the spirit and subdues the passions; it gives a sense of unity with all Muslims everywhere; according to the Koran, it atones for aft the sins ofthe year. But all the values of fasting may be cancelled by lack of sincerity. The Koran says: “If a keeper of the fast does not abandon lying, God does not care about his leaving offeating anddrinking . ,. There are many keepers of fasts who gain nothing but wakefulness.” The Muslim fast is not meant for self-torture. Although it is stricter than other fasts, it also provides alleviations for special circumstances; for example, aged people, or persons specially circum-stanced, such as a woman expecting a child, or one who is nursing a baby, but on this point opinion is not unanimous, some holding that they ought to put in fasts later, when they can. The instincts for food, drink and sex are strong in the animal nature, and temporary restraint from all these enables the attention to be directed to higher things. This is necessary through prayer, contemplation and acts of charity, not of the showy kind, but by seeking out those really in need. Islam is a religion of peace, good will, mutual understanding and good faith. It will not acquiesce in wrongdoing, and Muslims hold their lives cheap in defence of honour, justice and the freedom to worship Allah, Islam knows no territorial boundaries. It forms a common bond of culture among over one and a half billion Muslims around the world - The Sunni and the Shia, every sect of Islam. During Ramadan, there’s an intensified feeling of unity among all Muslims, demolishing all distinctions or barriers of race, colour, nationality and language. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, and Muslims dominate nearly half the globe. Fasting is the fourth pillar of Islam. The first is belief in the allknowing, all -powerful and sovereign God, Allah; the second, Slat (prayer); the third Zuk~~t (charity) and the fifth, Haj (pilgrimage). Fasting is mandatory to strengthen one’s faith in the sovereignty ofAllah and to create a sense of sympathy and fellowship in the hearts and minds of Muslims. By keeping fast, one feels the pangs of poverty and the hardships of hun-

ger and starvation. This practical experience inspires Muslims to work toward

Like all religions, Islam has its sects. In the 6OOs, the Muslim world split into two great divisions, Sunni and Shia. Most Muslims are Sunnites. They believe that Muslim leadership after the death of Muhammad passed to caliphs elected from Muhammad’s tribe. The Shi’ites believe that leadership was restricted to’ descendants of Ali.

Lenard sports

The first Icg of the OUAA West Division volleybalf semifinals ended successfully for the Warri-

ors. They triumphed over McMaster in five sets, with scores of 1540, 15-2, 1145, 10-15, and 15- 13. The Warriors won the first two sets easily, and it seemed that the third set should only be a formality. Surprisingly, however,

McMaster pulled together to win the next two. Finally, the Warriors pooled their resources to win the final set and the match. Despite the team’s improvement since Christmas, this sort of inconsistency is responsible for the recent flip-flop of the team’s rankings in the CIAU standings. As a result, the team is no longer nationally ranked. Whether or not the team deserves to be ranked is a question that coach Ed Price may have to answer. “We didn’t play enough teams ahead of us and do well, to go up in the rankings, and that was our own fault. We lost twice since Christmas to Windsor, and since Windsor is a non-ranked team, by losing

cl1 its official: the sudden death playoff that will decide who takes on Western will be played this Tuesday night at the Waterloo Ret Complex. Game time is scheduled for 790 p.m.. That means that the pressure is on Waterloo if they want to make their dreams ofbeing in the playoffs come true. However, it is going to be hard as the team has not played well on the road, especially at Laurier. The Warriors had their hopes ofplaying in their own building for Tuesday’s game dashed Wednesday night. Laurier out-lasted Waterloo 2- l in a very emotionally and physically exhausting game for both the Warriors and their dedicated fans. With the victory, Laurier puts a four point spread between themselves and Waterloo, making it impossible for Waterloo to finish second and have home ice. The game lived up to the expectations

that had been rumoured

about it all week. It was physical, was tight, and more importantly, was heartbreaking for Waterloo.

Although Waterloo hung with the Golden Hawks the entire game, most times outplaying them, they just couldn’t seem to find the net. However, the good news for the Warriors and their fans is that revenge is the best policy. What better way for the Golden Hawks to go down than in front of their own fans?! Speaking of fans, those Hawk lovers take the cake! Never before have I seen so many people in one place that were so obnoxious or irritating. One in particular that sticks in my mind is the annoying cry of some loud mouth after Laurier’s first goal. Her snide remark was directed at a usually patient and understanding Dean MacDonald. Tonight however, Dean reacted by screaming back, which was better then what most of us wanted to do to her. John Wynne scored Waterloo’s only goal on assists from Jason Mervyn and Steve Smith. Despite the loss, Waterloo did have agoodgame. Joe Harris looked very confident in net and had some incredible saves for the Warriors.

The team beat Dalhousie, “who was ranked fourth the weekend before last at Laval, and that was a good match, and then the team just turned around and lost to Windsor sgain,” according to Price. He believes that “If the team plays ball, then we have the talent to be in the top four, but we have to prove that .” It’s hard to understand why the team ranked first in Ontario is not ranked nationally, but it may be due to the quality of play outside of Ontario - it is, in general, higher. “A lot of that comes from having bigger athletic budgets, and a lot of universities not running as many intercollegiate teams as we are here. Also, some of the provinces, with the exception ofQuebec and Ontario have the chance of offering athletic scholarships, so they draw a lot of Ontario players; and also when you water down the Ontario talent among I6 teams...” remarks Price. The finals are tomorrow night against Windsor. Price doesn’t think that Waterloo’s recent loss against

Windsor will not affect their playing tonight. When the teams last met, Waterloo had “played seven matches in seven days, we played away for I’ve days at Laval, got back late, land you’re looking at a three and half hour drive. The guys are in midterms, we’d already clinched first place, it really meant nothing to us”. Price is relatively confident in the team’s ability to win. “If we come to play ball, I don’t think it should be close. If we don’t show up with six guys on the court who are mentally into it, we’re going to get pushed.; they’re not a bad team, and they’ve improved a lot”. Regardless ofthe outcome, the game should be faced-paced with high quality playing; an opportunity for the team to show their talent.

on the OUAA All-Star team. Rookies Matt St. Gerrnain and Aaron Kenney played well also. St. Germain, a big guy to begin with, threw his weight around all night. Kenney kept Laurier’s scoring leader John Spoltare busy most of the night, a task that is even difficult for a veteran, let alone a rookie. Brian Henry and Mark Cardiff also looked pretty good as they levelled out a bunch of Hawks. Look for tomorrow’s game against Laurier to be much different from Wednesday’s, Since the only thing on the line is the point spread, both teams will rest, players in order to be healthy for the playoff game Tuesday night. On Tuesday, expect the game to be very physical and fast paced. These guys will be fighting to keep their dreams alive. Speed

Making by Kimberly Moser Imprint Sports ne might expect there to be some extra pressure riding on the shoulders of Dean MacDonald these days as he plays out his last few games with the Ice Warriors. However, this home town boy is handling the situation the same way he always does - with confidence, style and intensity. “I like to think I play my best hockey in the most important games,” says MacDonald, who will play in the game of his life tomorrow against Laurier; the winner will go on to host the sudden death final scheduled for this coming Tuesday. “When we blow a team out 1O1, I won’t be on the score sheet necessarily. I find I have my best games when we have our tightest or toughest games.” He’s not joking. The fourthyear Kinesiology student has been the sparkplug for the Warriors over the last three years. His incredibly explosive style of hockey and presence on the ice have helped bring Waterloo back into the extremely tight playoff race with Laurier. The tide of the game seems to switch as MacDonald’s line ofGeoff Rawson and Jeff Goldie hit the ice. Born and raised in Waterloo, this right-winger made his way up through the minor ranks, playing a year in New Hamburg before he joined the Waterloo Siskins. It was there that he met best friend and teammate Chris Kraemer. “I knew him (Kraemer) from when I was younger.

Saturday was free technique day consisting of a 1Ok.m men’s race and 5km women’s race in the morning. The aRemoon held the relay races; 3x7.5 km for the Warier’s and 3xSkm for the Athenas. Sunday turned out to be a day of rest, as races were delayed and then shortened due to skin-freezing temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius. The women skied 5km and the men followed with 10 km. Our Warriors claimed six of the top twenty positions on Saturday’s individual race. Steve Daniels

IMPRINT,

Extreme led with a strong 6th place finish,followed close behind by Dave Climie’s 9th place, Brad Frenette in 12th, Brent Curry 13 th, Gary Pluim 17th, and Scott Curry 14th. The Warrior’s A team (Steve Daniels, Dave Climie, and Brent Curie) managed to capture a bronze medal for their brilliant relay perfonnance. Not too far behind was the B team (Gary Pluim, Norman O’Reilly, and Scott Curry) in 7th place. The Athenas also put in a strong showing, with Tanya Moore finishing 22nd, Joanne Murray 28th, Julie Murray 32nd, Alex Mihailovic 34th, and OWIAA rookies Jessica Maier at 4 1st and Natalie Sonosky at 46th. TheAthenas’ A team (Julie Murray, Joanne Murray, and Tanya Moore) pulled off a showy 6thplace and the B team (Alex Mihailovic, Natalie

Sonosky, and Jessica Maier) gave a wonderful effort for 13th (okay, okay, so we were dead last). Sunday’s cold didn’t stop UW from kicking more OUAA/O WIAA butt. Again our Warriors made us proud with a 6th place for Dave, 11 th for Brad, followed by 12th for Steve, 14th for Brent, 2 1st for Gary, and 23rd for Scott. The Athenas fought stiff competition as Tanya retained her22nd rank, with Julie at 37th, Joanne at 28th, Alex at 41 st, and Natalie a close twenty-six seconds behind for 44th. Speedster Jessica blew us all away by her amazing performance to capture 32nd place. When all was said and done, the Warriors came home with a 2nd place finish overall and an all-star title for Dave Clime. The Athenas can be proud with a 5 th place finish.

f last week’s overtime loss to the Windsor Lancers was the Waterloo basketball Warriors’ most bitter loss of the season, last Saturday’s 77-72 win over the Western Mustangs at UWO’s Alumni Hall must have been the sweetest win. With memories of their collapse on the previous Wednesday night still fresh in their minds, the Warriors refused to allow a repeat of that crushing collapse. Instead, they collected themselves and executed down the stretch to break a three-game losing skid and exact revenge for Waterloo’s first loss of the year to the Mustangs at the PAC. Wednesday night in Guelph, the Warriors lost to the Gryphons 60-86, making their record 6-5. At Western, the Warriors showed their stinging outside prowess with nine three-pointers, five from the team’s point leader Sean VanKoughnett, who earnedplayerof-the-game honours from CHCH while accumulating 26 points and nine rebounds. UW led by as much as 13 points in the first half (33-20) and went into the locker room up 35-28. In the second frame, Waterloo seemed to use treys to douse each and every Western comeback bid. As soon as Western came within

six or seven points, Van Koughnett, Matt Williams, or Nick Poulimenos were there to drain one from downtown. The ‘Stangs saved their best for last, with Mike Milne hitting a free throw to tie it up at 66-66 with 5:09 to play. Again, Poulimenos bottomed out a trifecta to put UW up for good. Three games remain in Waterloo’s regular schedule, all against teams above them in the standings: tomorrow versus the Brock Badg-

Warriors edge ‘Stangs 77- 72, fall to Gryphons 60-86 ers at ‘the PAC, at McMaster next Wednesday, and home to Guelph on Feb. 25. Van Koughnett isn’t dreading playing these teams by any means, because it means that Waterloo will gain valuable experience against the teams they’ll have to beat on that first weekend in March. “It’s good that our last four

games are against really tough opponents, going into the playoffs,” Van Koughnett said last week, Despite falling to third place in the division, the Badgers are still a legitimate contender for the crown. But all-Canadian point guard David Pi&on is out for the season, leaving monster centre Clint Holtz to carry the load. Without Pi&on, the Badgers could only muster a two-point victory over the Warriors in St. Catharines three Wednesdays ago. Holtz continues to lead the OUAA West in both scoring and rebounds. With 6’-9” Mark Hopkins’ improved play in the post, Waterloo should be able to compete against Holtz. “[A strong inside game] is something we haven’t had until this year,” Van Koughnett said. “In my five years here, we probably have the strongest inside game this year, and one of the strongest in the league, so that’s something we’ve got to keep on doing.” The Warriors are almost certain to play in anOUAA West quarter-final game, probably versus Western, at Hamilton’s Copps Coliseum on the evening of Friday, March 3. The first and second-place teams get a bye to the semi-final round, while three plays six and four plays five on March 3. The division semi-finals and finals go on March 4 and 5.

in the fast lane

ast Friday saw Waterloo’s Varsity Track and Field team travelling to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York for competition against Cornell, Penn State, University of Pennsylvania, York University and U of T. Despite businduced body cramps, starvation , and the oh-so-common headcold , the Warriors and Athenas left their mark at the Ivy League school and

team posted a total of 24 personal bests (pb’s) and two CIAU standard qualifications (Jeff Miller and Sarah Dillabaugh.) ing from the late 1800’s, that is not the school’s ‘military science’ head Because there are too many to mention, some of the outstanding performances are as follows: Chris Bastie’s pb’s in the 200 m (22.88 sets) and 400m, “Michael” Malott in the long jump, Al Runstedther ( 1:5&O), Paul Godkin, and Athena Sherri Carter in the 8OOm, Sarah

Where the great plains The Tragically Hip w/ The Odds and Change of Heart Mupie Ltwf Gardem Friday, February 10 by Pat Merlihan Imprint staff

-

T

here is nothing tragic about the Hip these days, except perhaps their frustrating struggle to gain a 1ittlc intcmat ional attention. Touting their brand new Duy .f;,r N&irt album across the country to sold-out venues has to be at least comforting, in that they’re Canada’s most close-to-the-heart musicians as well as our best kept SXret. in spite of this captivity, their top-notch performance at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens Friday night put stars in the eyes of all Hipsters in attendance. Being somewhat skeptical of arena rock pcrfomancc, my prcshow cynicism about the Hip’s latest grand&c tour was violently squashed with their incredible pcrformancc. Taking the stage at the stroke of nine and immcdiatcly launching into “Grace Too,” Dl<vjtir NigWs lead-off track, the tone was immcdiately set for the subsequent two hour performance. Gut-wrenching Gord Downic angst, with all the bells and whistles of a killer stage performance, easily had the crowd in a frenzy. The crowd, it should be mcntioncd, was the sort that would scream their lungs out in response to anything’ Downie said. Of par-

Lydia Lunch and .Exene Cervenka The Upera House, Toronto Friday, February 10

de Cessares to Imprint

ccording to the blathering sychophants (the ones queued up prior to the “performance” with their reams of records, books and porn magazines to get autographed), it had been quite awhile since either Lydia Lunch or Excne Cervenka had played in Toronto. As it was, both joined forces for a duelling spoken word performance Friday night at Toronto’s Opera House. Lunch, formerly of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, and sometime Nick Cave and Sonic Youth collaborator, and Exene, the former singer/songwriter of Los Angeles’ seminal punk band X, hit the stage together armed with nothing but their own tardy scraps of binder paper. Tonight, there would be no music.

Bugs,

titular interest was Gord’s interpretation of southern Ontario geography; comparing it to human anatomy, he proclaimed Toronto as “the navel, Kingston the vagina, and Hamilton the cock!” [??I)] And to think that to the most of us Ham-

ilton had always been merely the armpit. The crowd couldn’t have cared less -- they ate it up with earshattering screams of approval. Following with “Fully Completcly” and “Inevitable Death” quelled any fears of unfulfilled ex-

For her part, Lunch chose to read from a podium, thereby allowing her to excrcisc a theatrical and emotional reading. Exenc, on the other hand, was by far the more restrained of the two as she held her notes tight-fistedly in front of her face, obscuring all but her mop of hair and chic Oriental pyjamas. The two would alternately take turns talking, sometimes employing overlapping dialogue for dramatic and poetic effect. First and foremost on their agenda, they charged right into 0. J. Simpson. It was a harbinger of things to come, first because they want him to fry (Lunch wants a lot ofpeople to fry, but more on that later), and setondly because they touched down on just about every American tabIoid scandal of the past twenty-four montlx -- Lorenna Bobbit, the brothers, Joey Menendez Buttaticco, Rodney King, etc., etc., etc.... and, of course, Kurt Cobain. Their attack on Kurt was a littie surprising, given the presumption that he was part of “the family.” Fuck that! ! As far as Lunch is

concerned, he was a pathetic loser, and so, for the same matter, is the whole “alternative nation,“especiallythe idiots withal1 the body picrcings, tattooes and DOG Martins. I didn’t say it, she did, but I can’t say that I disagree either. Of the two of them, Lunch was by far the more volatile, cynical and sarcastic. Both are doubtlessly pessimistic, something I’m sure is the result of their urban nightmare but upbringings, Exene is more reflec-’ tivc

pectations to rest. With a stripped down stage and effects limited to a video screen that occasionally blasted soothing images of water and candle light, Downie and crew indulged fans with an experience few wi 11forget. Most of their set pulled tracks fiorn hy for Night and Fully Completely, yet ventured further back to Road Apples and Up to Here. Unfortunately, nothing was taken from their self-titled EP. Regardless, the set was flawless. “Fifty Mission Cap” was the first of the night that had fans in an orgy shouting every word; a special moment indeed. “Bugs” followed, demonstrating their recent experimental edge, then launching into Fuliy Completely’s “Hundreth Meridian,” stretching it to epic-length chit chat and emotional yelps. For one song only, Gord strapped on an acoustic guitar to take part in a three minute intro of “Daredevil.” The token cheeziness came in the slower number, “Scared,” which compelled fans to brandish their lighters. Oh well. “Little Bones” finally breached the back and forth song selection between the last two albums, keeping fans enthmlled with rock-star fantasies of singing it. Reaching further back to Up to Here was the all-too familiar “New Orleans is Sinking” which was, as always, the song of the night. As per usual, the song was dragged out for a good ten minutes; Downie boxed the mike stand, strutted across floor amps, danced in circles, and delivered his poetic message while

Beforetheir four song dlouble encore, an energized rendition of“Fire in the Hole” left the audience screaming for more. And scream they did. Opening were Toronto’s Change of IHeart and Vancouver’s Odds, both hot on the heals of their new relleases. Change of Heart may be sporting $100,000 CFNY award money for being a “new” discovery, but their 14 year career still sounded ernpty in the cavernous Gardens. Taking selections from their new re-release, Tummysuckk, Change of Heart did little to change my opinion in their short 45 minute set. Besides trying to coax crowd response with the all-too cheesy “PARTY,“Change of Heart should have taken the money and run. The Odds, on the other hand, had a solid performance with songs from their debut album, NeopolitLtn, follow-up album, Bed Bugs and hot new release, Good Weird Feeling. However, writing fairly catchy tunes with quirky themes is a trend that is becoming a little too Canadian. In songs like their new one “Radio in Heaven,” a trio of voices brought scary visions of Moxy Fruvous to mind. Otherwise, the Odds seem to have a couple of new hits on their hands, and what better way to promote them than opening for Canadian heart throbs The Tragically Hip.

MANKIND!! Is she serious? Under the veneer of her smirks and snarls, only Lydia knows for sure. Obviously, as a man who doesn’t quite subscribe to the “Monster Within” womep-arevictims and men-aretheir-oppressors mentality, I can’t say that I exactly wholeheartedly embrace everything that Lunch and Exene have firm convictions about. But neither can I say that it wasn’t highly entertaining. In the end, it was a little bit of everything - high camp and provocative thought -- and you really can’t ask for much more than that. Except, of course, for some equal time bashing on Courtney Love. [Actually, they did a lot of that

too.]

They are a consummate Canadian band, combining a British classic rock sensibility [Beatles, Stones, The Who] with American underground affectations [The Pixies, Sonic Youth], and still manage to sound remarkably

umours have been flying the past month or so about the ‘mminent demise of Nova Scotian superstars Sloan. Apparently, the band is pissed at their major American label, Geffen, for lack of support Stateside, or so the rumour goes, and is now facing a possible break-up. The fact that drummer Andrew Scott now permanently resides in Toronto hasn’t exactly helped quell the rumour. Many observers feel the hearsay’s probably nothing but a well orchestrated pub1 icity stunt though, an exercise, as it were, to dissuade Gcffcn from picking up their option on Sloan’s next couple of albums. Sloan, you see, would like to rclcasc on their own label, Murdcrecords, and who can blnmt: them. Whatcvcr.

My Neighbour Ned Grad House Friday, February 10 by Candacc Baran Imprint staff

N

ed has packed up the u-haul and moved out of the neighbourhood. Yes, that’s right. The band “My neighbour Ned” broke up two days before their scheduled gig at the Grad House last Friday night. Half of the former Ned duo, Mike Busseri, entertained the masses despite the breakup. To fill the void, Scott Deneau and his merry gang - sister Christine Deneau and Thomas Murrey - performed for the troops in the second set. It was a lonely image - Mike performing next to an empty microphone. Some of the songs he sang were a little rcpctitivc, but hey, he’s new to the solo artist scene. His quicker tunes were more entertaining than the slower songs. Mike had an easy, relaxed rap-

.

port with the audience at the Grad House. After about a dozen songs, he ended the set with a political song about the KKK, and a rift from Pearl Jam’s ‘Better Man.’ Next, Scott Deneau graced the makeshift stage. I’ve seen Scott Deneau perform once before and his charismatic stage presence left a favourable impression. Deneau announced a second album to be released this May. On Friday, however, he performed many songs from his “Autumn Moon” album. If you’ve ever seen Deneau perform, you know that he throws himselfphysically and emotionally into every song he croons. It’s amazing. His guitar shakes, his body rustles with pent-up emotion, yet his voice can ripple from complete calm to passionate exuberance in a matter of seconds. His partners in crime provided additional entertainment. Thomas Murrey brought several instruments to the show. At the start of the first few songs, he timbled around in

[most radio listeners are probably more familiar with their much quicker Smeared version]. All the same, the song still fcatured a brilliant mid-song guest rap from Maritime labelmates Hip Club Groove and some kid who got on stage to play bass. The role ofshow-stopping piecede-resistance appears to have now shifted to “Penpals,” a song as strong as anything they’ve done and, egads, only just recently featured onT’e Rita MffcNeiI Show. Then there was the fab encore, featuring “People of the Sky,” as well as a great cover of the MCS’s “Back in the USA,” and then placing bassist and all-around band hunk Chris Murphy behind the drum kit. Under this arrangement Sloan ended the night with a long ‘60’s style jam freak-out with Murphy savagely improvising, as ridiculous as it sounds, like a young Keith Moon. That and an hours worth of autograph signing, Most of the main set was made up of the veritable greatest hits package from Smcwred and Twice Remowd -- “1 Am The Cancer,” “Median Strip,” “Take It In,” “Sugartune,” “I Hate My Generation,” “Coax Me,““WorriedNow,““Snowsuit Sound,” and a bunch of others including a new forthcoming single. So many great songs from a so-far merely brief career. All in all, another stellar showing from one of Canada’s best, freshest, and most consistent rock and roll bands.

his magical, musical tickle trunk searching for the perfect tool to accompany Deneau. he pulled out a flute, a clarinet, a saxophone, even something that looked like a warped cheese grater. Fast or slow, he added his musical two cents to every one of Scott’s songs. When he accompaniedvocalswith hisownvoice, , he read Scott’s lips and provided a musical echo that was a little distracting. The highlight of the show came when sister Christine joined Scott for “Autumn Moon.” A satisfied hush fell over the crowd. Christine has a vocal style similar to Sarah McLaughlin’s soothing style on “Fumbling Towards Ecstacy”. Watch for performances by the Deneau duo, this team will send your ears to mu% cal nirvana. Ned’s moving out of the neighbourhood and Scott Deneau’s moving in with till force.

couple of weeks ago, I experienced The Notorious B.I.G., the same artist whose record I reviewed recently, live in concert in Toronto. In general, I am not one for concerts since my near-fatal ordeal at the Cypress Hill/House of Pain joint a year and a half ago. Yet, when I heard the Notorious One would be live at the Apollo, I knew I had to be thcrc.

Three Colours: Red directed by KrzysztufKieslowski at the Princess Cinema February 17-23 by Johanna Neufeld Imprint staff

A

fter accidentally running over a dog, a young woman encounters a reclusive magistrate. Struck by his complete indifference to his injured pet, she is surprisingly drawn to this eccentric man, and curiously returns to see him. A strange relationship develops, in which they chaIlenge and expand each others’ perceptions. Red is the final instalment in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s trilogy

well as Kieslowski’s career as a director. Irene Jacob is the Swiss model and student Valentine. Genuinely concerned about others and seemingly happy with her own life, she unknowingly hides the problems her family and boyfriend cause. Rather decided in her values and way of thinking, the old man confiontsValentine’suncertainties and gives her reason to doubt. Their diverse yet similar viewpoints give the film a clear,

and almost

literary

focus. Jean-Louis Trintignant plays the disillusioned and retired former judge, Disgusted with humanity and its hypocrisy, he listens to the telephone conversations of his neighbourF. Not really worried

about hurting anyone, for him the definition of right and wrong is not as clear as it once was. The truth will eventually come out, he says, as everything justifies itself in the end. Believing more in the future and forces beyond his control, he balances Valentine’s opposing philosophies. Their opinions often resemble the fluctuating scales of blind justice, The director addresses numerous themes in his film. The two main characters struggle with communication, fate, chance, pessimism, doubt, and belief, and the emotional anguish these all create in their lives and those of strangers. It also shows us just how close we are to others, even though we often don’t know or believe it. As the title suggests, there are countless references to the aforementioned colour. The director uses several; vibrant shades of crimson as a silent medium, to express the often closed feelings of the characters. Symbolizing danger, confusion, anger, and embarrassment; red also represents the passionate rage of jealousy, love, and hate. With Kieslowski, he delves into the depths ofhuman interaction and thought. A complex film with conflicting subjects, Red is powerful yet provocative.

It seems rather ironic th a It Massive Attack are currently re C :eiving some attention stateside (wide domestic release of the album, radio airplay) due in great part to the evcrgrowing popularity of the similar sounding Portishcad. Ironic because Geoff Barrow and Beth Gibbons’ main musical progenitors arc fellow Bristolians Massive Attack, whose 199 1 Blue Lirzcs was a benchmark of mixing movlc soundtrack atmospherics with slight hip-hop beats. W hatcver the impetus, any albums they sell arc well-deserved, as this shows some very strong musical innovation. If one wanted to be banal about it, they could say that if you love Portishead, you’re likely going to like Massive Attack too. Many of the same characteristics that make the former band enticing - strong vocals, moody overtones in the music, and so forth - are what make the latter just as special. There are differences between the two of course, which stem mainly from the soul element in

While the movie looks like it will hit video shelves quicker thanLast Action Hero, the soundtrack seems like it has some staying power. With a wide variety of current artists like Green Day, House Of Pain, Superchunk and Collective Soul contributing tracks this is not as big a bomb as the movie. The Jerky Boys manage to follow the example set by the Reservoir Dogs and Pu@ Rction soundtracks. Character dialogue (this time prank phone calls) is found interspersed between songs and even in the songs. Given the topic of the movie, TheJerky Boys Soundtrack is perfectly suited to this type of treatment.

Now all she has to do is dump Ben Watt, and move on to what seems to be her true calling (yeah, like that’s likely). By now you might be getting the sense that this album is like a supergroup collective (I haven’t even mentioned the two instumentals on here, one with what sounds like a close sampling of the Halloween theme music), and in many ways this is exactly the feeling you get. Mixing hip-hop, Petula Clark, and Tracy Thorn appears to be a very disparate combination, yet Massive Attack pull it off fantastically, making it an entirely organic mix of styles. Aside from an awful cover of “Light My Fire” at the close, this album is quite definitely brilliant. A must-have for hip and happening cafes and coffee houses everywhere.

Songs by Green Day, Superchunk and Collective Soul keep this soundtrack afloat despite some painful moments (due in most part to the movie cuts). Green Day contribute “2,000 Light Years Away,” a highlight from their indie debut Kerplunk. The Collective Soul song “Gel” is so damn catchy you just want to hate it. The derivativepounding guitars sound like every other guitar band out there but “Gel” is a fine song regardless. North Carolina’s Superchunk remake an old tune of theirs. “Shallow End” is given a mellow treatment. Theirjangly guitar rock is quite enjoyable and is easily the best tune here. The Beastie Boys sometime-DJ Hurricane recreates the B-boys style on the peppy “Four Fly Guys,” but House Of Pain’s “Beef Jerky” is plain 1y bormg. The Jerky Buys contains a wide disparity in the song quality. It does manage to gather a wide range of artists spanning many genres of music. Just like the Jerky Boys comedy albums though, the soundtrack is fine in small doses but all at once it proves way too much.

It has often been said that The Beautiful South is a one-trick pony. While this may be true, it is equally true that their one trick is very good. By uniting the sappiest ofmelodies with the most caustic of lyrics (and by doing both extremely well) The Beautiful South have fashioned a career out of being pop music’s first truly post-modem band. They don’t just write songs about writing songs, but rather they write songs about why writing songs is stupid. (There are five such songs on this compilation.) curry On up the Charts collects more than its fair share of The Beautiful South’s singles, and in a special Canadian-only edition of this CD, tacks on another CD with sixteen b-sides - all for the price of a normal CD. The track selection for the Asides would have been a more interesting collection for both fans and for those wanting an introduction to The Beautiful South, if the compilers had decided upon better album tracks instead of sticking strictly with singles. Songs like “You Keep It All In” and “We Are

Each Other” are good songs, very good, but their inclusion leaves out obviously superior tracks. While the selection from WeZcome tu the Beuuriful South, the band’s first album, is fairly representative, the band’s second (and best) album., Choke, is represented with only three tracks (one of them, “Let Love Speak Up Itself” is a bit of a throwaway) as opposed to four tracks for all the other albums. Equally redundant are the four singles from the band’s last album, which was rleleased less than a year ago. The obligatory extra/bonus track “One Last Love Song” is, happily, a fine work as opposed to the cast-offs usually included in such compilations. The B-sides CD is reason enough to buy this greatest hits package both in terms of quality and quantity. Only five of the sixteen tracks are covers, including one by the brothers Gibb(!) and tracks like “They Used to Wear Black” and “In Other Words I Hate You”easi ly rank up there with the band’s best work. The Beautiful Southare a love them/hate them band. Many people simply can’t get over the radiofriendly sound that the band embraces in order to parody. Fans, however, will find more than enough in the band’s lyrics to keep them interested.

Three Mile Pilot is a three piece band that’s proud of the fact that they operate outside the normal bounds of most three pieces. The focus is clearly on what bassist Armistead Burwell Smith IV can create with his obvious talent. I know, I know, you’re thinking that this is just another Primus. But you’re wrong. Smith turns the bass into a very lyrical instrument. This metamorphosis from rhythm to melody was probably a necessary move though. The vocals are at the very bottom of the mjx and you’ve really got to concentrate to make out the lyrics. I would rather listen to the album without the vocal tracks and not have to worry about the apocalyptic vision of the group’s vocalist. He doesn’t have much to offer in the way of emotion other than disenchantment, pain, and an abject state of loneliness. The music helps reinforce these themes.

by Dave Fisher special to Imprint All the “are-they-an-indie-or-not” arguments aside, Matador Records has what’s probably the hippest roster of artists in music today. I needn’t bother boring you by regurgitating that roster, suffice to mention that one of my dearest favourites (up there with Pavement, etc. etc.) is the little-known and mysterious Bailter Space. Admittedly obscure (Vorturu carries neither bandmember listings, songwriting credits, photos, nor recognizable graphics), it’s no mystery why Matador continues to carry them despite negligible record sales: quite simply, Bailter Space has a knack for knocking out great songs that sound like nobody else. Naturally, a couple of comparisons are in order, so I suppose I’ll toss Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Joy Division in to the stew. Normally this would be enough to scare the shit out of me because bands with those comparisons are usually nothing but the most slavish run-of-the-mill imitators. Bailter Space isn’t like that; rather, they’ve carved out such a unique aural landscape for themselves that they deserve to keep only the best of company. That company certainly wouldn’t disapprove, as their peerage attests. Bailter Space has actually been around for over fifteen years. Originally calling them-

Nine of the ten tracks move ominously slow. The exception is “97-MT,” which moves at a brisk pace but doesn’t shake that brooding feel the rest of the songs give off. This is certainly not 199% feelgood album of the year. The best aspect of this group is their interesting use of off-beat instruments such as the bagpipes in the opening track “Shang vs. Hanger.” They also make use of a session player named Jim French who makes his own bizarre instruments. He’s credited with playing the lur, the midgaard serpent, the svegl, and the war flute. Each of these instruments sounds just as dark and dissonant as the rest of the album. If you’re into mocdy, distant music then this album might appeal to you. While I admire the musicians, I find the songwriting all too predictable. It’s easy to sense when the supposedly dramatic crescendoes are going to occur. You know that the melody (a term I use loosely in this band’s case) isn’t going to change at all through the song. After 60 minutes of this it gets awfully tiring. Three Mile Pilot strives to create its own dark reality with this album. It’s not appealing at all; I prefer my own strange, twisted reality.

selves The Gordons, the New Zealand powertrio first put out a couple of albums and an EP in the early ‘80’s under the Gordons moniker for the infamous Flying Nun label before changing their name to the even vaguer sounding Bailter Space. Known in those earlier days for their simple jagged chords, brooding rhythms, deliberate overdriving feedback, indecipherable lyrics and ear-shredding volume, the trio’s sound has continued to grow spatially and in texture under their new identity. Vortura is the band’s fifth album (they’ve also got a bunch of totally cool EPs) and their third for Matador, although another one’s supposed to be available this coming spring. I suppose die-hard nit-pickers could argue that Vortmz doesn’t really veer that far from 1993’s Robot World, but that was a fantastic album. Besides, Bailter Space has never -- nor will ever -- come close to acheiving the sort of successes that get all the Live’s, Weezer’s, and Veruca Salt’s lining up to rip them off, so you needn’t worry about them sounding like typical MTV fare should you be in any regard concerned. This is a sound that is wholly original. With highlights including the moody and melodic “Process Paid,” “X,” “No 2,” “Dark Blue” and ‘*Shadow,” this is music that lulls and punishes at the same time. You won’t be dancing to Vortwu, nor is it likely one could win over new girlfriends with it. If this sounds like a recipe for manicdepressives, I mean, who gives a fuck. I can’t get enough and, for what it’s worth, neither can Matador. Take it to the bank -- this band is cooler than you or I will ever be,

For a perfect example of how out of touch with contemporary music Rolling Stone really is, check out The Rolling Stone Record Guide. It’s an oh-so comprehensive record guide that covers everything from Elvis Presley and The Beatles to Miles Davis and Parliament to The Smiths and Husker Du, In the entry for Big Black, producer Steve Albini’s seminal mid-eighties band, no album receives more than one and a half stars, and the band’s whole oeuvre is dismissed as pre-industrial crap. Such narrow-mindedness no doubt thriIls Albini to his cold, black heart since his work both as an artist and as producer to the alternative stars (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, The Pixies) has always remained as far outside the mainstream as is possible without being wilfully obscure. His new project, Shellac, is no different. Another three piece, like Big Black, Shellac is a major stylistic leap forward for Albini and demonstrates the musical will of a man not

29

satisfied with staying behind the controls of a mixing board. The combination of a strong musical background as well as a proven track record in the studio benefits Albini immensely -- his new band demonstrates how his broad background can produce a truly unique sound. Shellac, unsurprisingly, owes much of its sound to Big Black. The scratchy, metallic guitarsandAlbini’sunmistakableshout-singing are all there, but there’s no doubt that the band, although undoubtedly abrasive, is slightly less so than Alblini’s previous outfit. The use of a real drummer helps the band’s sound immensely, and tracks like “The Admiral” and “Crow” display a radically different style than the jackhammer drilling of Big Biack. Much of At Action Park sounds like a demo; not because there are any obvious errors in the recording, but rather the crisp edges, that even an album like Nevermind possesses, are gone. There are few versechorus-verse song structures, and the intros and outros to many of the songs sound unrehearsed. All of this is planned, of course, but the band has managed to demonstrate that a simple trio, in a world of Nine Inch Nails and 256 track recording, can still do interesting things with drums, a guitar and a bass.

The Soup Dragons have always had trouble offering up anything of any substance. Their cover of the Stones’ “I’m Free,” although somewhat a commercial success, was hardly great. Hot-wired gave us forgettable hit singles in “Divine Thing” and “Pleasure,” but Hydrophonic is worse. It’s basically a rehashing of the last album without the hit singles. Sean Dickson has assembled three new Soup Dragons to help carry on the name, butHydr-uphonic is decidedly his baby. Dickson is laughable in saying that “this album sounds more like a band than anything I’ve ever done” since it is quite the contrary and he handles almost all of the playing. As front man and main songwriter one would think that Dickson’s influence would overshadow the contribu-

FR

tions of the other members. Hydruphonic turns out to be a sad effort in name dropping. Mickey Finn of T. Rex fame adds bongos and congas to the lame “May The Force Be With You.” The Specials help otit vocally on the atrocious reggae turned industrial thrash number “Rest In Peace” in which Talking Heads’ Tina Weymouth also plays bass. The use of Bootsy Collins (ParliamentFunkadelic) and his trademark bass on “Mothetiker” does not raise the quality by one degree. . Hydrophonic takes on a much larger sound than their previous efforts. The gospel tinged lead off number “One Way Street” is as good as this gets, which isn’t saying much. A few songs reflect the sound of fellow Scats Primal Scream. Not much of a surprise as the Soup Dragons seem to be constantly ripping off “next big thing” coming out of the U.K. Don’t be surprised if next time out it’s Oasis. Perpetually jumping on the bandwagon, Hydrophonic ends up sounding dated and unoriginal.

The above lyrics can refer to one of two things, the first being vocalist Jim Kerr’s personal life in which he’s recently battled a depression brought on by being in his mid-30s (go figure) or to the changes which have occured in the personnel ranks of Simple Minds over the period since the release of “Real Life” in 1991.

the tone for “Good News From The Next World” and for the future of the band itself. Just as the release of Celebration (a compilation of material from the first theree albums) in 1980 closed out the early stage of the i band’s career, the release of the greatest hits package Glittering Prize closed the door on the period which saw Simple Minds rise to become one of the top live acts in the world. Now it’s 1995 and Simple Minds is down to only two members: Jim Kerr and longtime friendand guitarist Charlie Burchill. Gone are the keyboard laden tracks of the 1980s and in their place is an album of straightforward rock and roll featuring numerous session musicians and the strong production skills of Keith Forsey, the man behind their huge smash “(Don’t You) Forget About Me.” In their place there is a new found reliance as the “new-wave” Spoons to Einsturzende Neubautenwannab& Skinny Puppy. And who can forget everyone’s favourite sunglass toting, lip-curling heartthrob Corey Hart. I’d given up on hearing anything new that was half decent until this past week and the arrival of Thrive. Transcendent is the word I think I’m looking for...this two piece outfit from Toronto is just fantastic. Awash in reverb and atmospheric in the extreme, Thrive’s &track Sophistry E.P. is a work of art. Vocals and lyrics are done by the sultry voiced Madame Quattorze and the “machinery” is programmed/played by Deane (the dropping of the last names is everso key). As for the music, well...it’s quite hard to describe. The closest comparison I can draw is to the now defunct Curve. Fierce guitars, heavy pulsating synth iines and everpresent string samples drift through every track.

Originally on Fugazi’s Dischord label, Shudder to Think don’t exactly fall into Washington D.C.‘s hardcore community, but rather manage to create a grinding staccato sound that takes some cues from bands like Minor Threat and Black Flag, but builds on their atonal din to create a much more (ahem) pleasant sound. The most obvious difference between Shudder to Think and most other hard rock bands is lead singer Craig Wedren’s warbling, falsetto voice. As opposed to the typical growl of the Angry Youth of Today, Wedren’s voice adds a subtle

on the guitar of Charlie Burchill, and from my point of view he more than stands up to the task. The themes running throughout this album are typical of Jim Kerr as we get a rehash of the faith, self renewal, and redemption writings of Once Upon A Time and Real Life. If you don’t believe me just Iook at the song titles to get the idea. “Great Leap Forward “and “My Life” jump out as obvious examples. For those interested watch out for the danceable “Night Music ” as the second single following “She’s A River. ” I didn’t really like this album upon first listen but with each subsequent playing it has grown on me. This album is like nothing Simple Minds have put out before which shows that t:hey are not content to rest on their past successes. Give the Good News a chance, it deserves one.

Included is a brilliant remix of “The Hollow Men,” a song found on their self-titled E-P.. Other songs have spooky names like “Cataleptic” and “Melancholia.” This album just flows together. Every song complements the other, with a pervading theme of darkness. Lyrics, like the music, run the gamut of pa.in, hurt and longing. Not exactly anything new, but choice stuff nonetheless. “...with your hand in mine, languor, hand in mine, rapture to pain...” The only problem with this album is that the lyrics are quite hard to understand amongst all the reverb and throbbing electronics. Their first filll-length album will be released soon and I for one will be eagerly awaiting it. Thrive should be playing the Volcano in March and it’s sure to be a great shlow. If you want something different and until now have been biased against certain Canadian music, buy this NOW and taste the bliss. but significant dimension to STT’s sound. To make full use of his voice’s range, STT’s ilyrics are usually structured like short poems. The rhyming scheme and cadence seem more important to Wedren than actually making sense. That’s not to say that there isn’t plenty of humour in the lyrics. There are some funny plays on words, and a few jokes, but for the mpst part, STT are peeling back the seamy underbelly ofurban life, and revelling in the sca.rs that most people try to hide. The awkward lyrics are punctuated by a start-stop rhythm section that serves to accentuate Wedren’s semi-poetic ramblings. Guitarist Nathan Larson provides an equally punishing emphasis on songs like the opening “Hit Liquor” and “G;ang of $“, one of the album’s morle menacing numbers.
