ast Wednesday, October 4th, two Waterloo students had a run-in with the UW Police regarding the possessi on of marijuana at the Bombshelter. Watchful staff recognized one of the students as one of a group which was suspected of smoking pot at the student pub only five days earlier, and called the police. When they arrived, staff told the pair that unless they handed over the doobage, they would be searched by police. The students admitted to smoking up in the bar and turned over to the police what was reported to be two bags.
Detective Sergeant Bradley of the UW Police said the two students were released after being advised of the illegality of their actions because the students

student studying Engineering at UW missed the first twopostings this term due to the poor dissemination of information on campus. Kevin Booth returned this term from a two-year hiatus but wasn’t made aware of changes that had been applied to the co-op appli-
fur missing interviews has already been misutwlied cation process. Among these changes was the required inclusion of tht: co-op student record as the first page of the resume package. Since his last co-op term was more than two years earlier, Booth was not assigned to a return-to-campus interview-with a coordinator at this time, and hence did not initiate the next stage in the co-op process. “We bring all of the coordinators in from out of the field and arrange for them to talk to the students and that’s the trigger to get the students into the process for that upcoming term,” said Bruce Lumsden, Director of Cooperative Education and Caeer
Services. Unaware of this fact, Booth continued in the co-op process until he realized the discrepancy in his resume package. He was ready to submit resum& into the appropriate bins for the first posting when he noticed his package was missing the first page, the co-op student record. After learning that this first page was mandatory, Booth kept his resumes, expecting them to be removed and not forwarded to the companies. Booth did try to obtain his record; Co-op, however, did not have a copy available. As a result, Booth didn’t receive his co-op student record until after the first two postings had occurred and expired. He was interested in applying for a particular job with Honda of Canada which was listed in the first posting. Booth then spoke with an Engineering coordinator who informed him that the only way to rectify the situation would be to mail his resum6 package independently . “Th,at was fine with me,” Booth said, but the coordinator refused to release the address, citing co-op policy. Since then, Booth has determined the mailing address of Honda Canadaand has forwarded his package to the appropriate personnel. But interviews have already started and this delay may cost him the job he wanted most.
that further illegal activities on the premises would result in their being banned from the Bombshelter and then ejected them from the establishment. One student returned the following Wednesday and was recogni/.cd by the Bomber staff. Despite going unpunished by the law, the students will have a hard time getting into campus pubs for a while. Supervising staff at the Bombshelter are on the lookout for the pair and will not admit them. In addition to this, steps are being taken to have them officially banned from oncampus pubs. University of Waterloo students are advised to just leave home without it when heading out to the Bombshelter.
our Co-op students placed in New York City are going through a bit of hell, a Forum piece indicates. The students make several serious allegations, including that they were instructed by their employer to lie about their citizenship, that they were expected to work up to forty hours a week unpaid overtime, that living arrangements supplied by their employer were falsely described, and that they have been working illegally since their work term’s commencement in September. When asked for comment, Engineering Program Administrator John Westlake noted that although Co-op had just heard of the problems, they had already made arrangements toget in touch with the students. Until they had more details, he declined comment on the allegations. He did assure Imprint that “we will run these issues to ground before stopping [the investigation] .” In this process Co-op will sped to the employer unless the students wish otherwise. Should these allegations be confirmed, Co-op could discontinue its relationship with the company, MediaServ. He noted that while MediaServ did interview on campusthis week, they will decide after investigation if MediaServ should be allowed to continue hiring.
While not a new company to the Co-op process, MediaServ has only hired students for a few terms. This has been the first complaint against MediaServ which has been brought to Coop’s attention. Co-op is attempting to contact students who have worked with MediaServ in past work terms. The Visa problem may seem familiar to many students, as students placed in Hong Kong this year were also working illegally for some time before Imprint broke the story. The cases are different, in that the students in New York place no blame on Waterloo’s Co-op department, and are not scared of arrest as the Hong Kong students were. When asked about the process for student visas, Westlake noted another difference between the two incidents. Whereas in the Hong Kong case achange in regular process had been missed by Co-op, for the United States a “straightforward procedure” cxists. “We have a mechanism for students and employers to get visas - we know the process and how it should work.” Co-op does not, however, arrange the visas. This
is left to the employers
the students. Westlake also emphasized that even if students encounter problems which, “aren’t Co-op’ s fault, there are still things we can do.” For this reason, students should not be shy about calling their Co-ordinator with concerns.

Vice Presidents thkan can shake a stick at
he Federation of Students will be attempting to pass a major structural revision at their October 24 General Meeting. Some major points of contention are expected to come up in this regard. The structural review process began nearly a year ago, when at the urging of then-President Stephen Codrington, a committee to review Fed structure was formed. At the time the major perceived problems included the hierarchy separating the Senior Officers from the Executive, the legitimacy of appointed Senior Officers in representation, and the fact that while Senior Officers were given immense amounts of responsibility, they seldom had authority to back it up. Leadership of thecommittee has changed several times since originally struck; however the final report was presented to Council in August t>y its then-Chair Avvey Peters, the first Senior Officer Internal Af’lXrs. Council passed the changes. In order for the Federation by-laws to be altered, however, the new structure must be ratified at this fall’s General Meeting. The current structure is composed of a President, a Vice President Operations and Finance (VPOF), a Vice President University ,4t’fairs (VPUA); and three Senior Officers: Academic Affairs @AA), Internal Af-
fairs (OIA), and Student Issues (OSI). The Executive are full-time, while the Senior Officers work half-time. Under the proposed new structure, the Presidency would relinquish most of its responsibility regarding academic issues to a
The OS1 currently shares responsibility for its mandate with the VPUA, a position which will be eliminated in the new structure. In the proposed structure, the OSI would report to the President, who would take on responsibility for these issues, as well as membership on each and every university committee deemed appropriate. One concern for VPUA
Add two Vice Presidents, take away one Vice President and two Senior Officers... that’s the recipe for makin ’ Feds new Vice President Education. Some responsibilitics currently maintained by the VPOF, such as supervising Fed services, will be transferred to a new position, the Vice President Internal. The VPOF title will be changed to Vice President Administration and Finance. The Vice President Internal will also be responsible for all Fed advertising, liaison with societies and clubs, and supervising the Office of Student Issues, previously reporting to the VPUA. OS1 would be least changed by the structural changes, as only its reporting relationship will be altered. Paradoxically, it may be the most affected by the changes.
Bicycle shop arrives by Norm Imprint
IMPRINT, Friday, October 13, 1995
new service is coming to the Student Life Centre. The UW bicycle centre is a do-it-yourself bike repair shop for members of the UW community. It is scheduled to have its Grand Opening on Wednesday, October 18 at 1:OO p.m. The new shop will be located in the basement of the SLC and can be accessed from outdoors near the loading dock, facing the Physical Activities Complex. The bike shop will offer a number of services including a&. A bright red Air Serve compressor will be located outdoors next to the door and is available 24 hours a day. For a nominal charge of only a quarter, riders can keep their tires at their correct pressure. The Centre’s do-it-yourself service will be available beginning Thursday, October 19. Even a novice at bike repair can get a handle on the concepts with the help of the many manuals available in the shop or with one of the courses offered. In addition, the centre will be staffed with personnel who are ready to lend a hand. The Bicycle Centre is equipped with a full range of tools to fix a wide range of problems associated with bicycles. Riders can come down to fix a tire, adjust their derailleurs, or overhaul their bottom bracket. The Grand Opening will feature a chain cutting ceremony in addition to other special Riders can get their events and services. driver’s license number engraved on their bicycles for identification purposes should
their bicycle ever get stolen. A police-issued identification number can be substituted for persons without a driver’s license. This will be available from 10~00 a.m. to 500 p.m. Also at the Grand Opening, riders can learn about biking and safety from the many information booths which will be set up for the event. Local law enforcement officials will be on hand to answer questions regarding safety while other booths will provide information on local shops and cycling clubs. Riders can learn about these organizations and see their demonstrations. The information booths will be located in the SLC atrium and will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:OO p.m, The day’s activites will culminate in a bicycle auction. Unclaimed recovered bicycles will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. These bikes will be availble for viewing all day and the auction will begin at 600 p.m. The UW Bicycle Centre should be a welcomed addition to the Student Life Centre since so many students on and off campus rely on bicycles as their primary means of transportation. Students no longer have to pay hefty repair fees for bike repairs since they will provide the labour. The Centre’ s hours of operation are Tuesdays and Sundays from noon to 3:OO p.m. and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:OO p.m. More information regarding the centre can be obtained from bulletin *boards in the Bike Shop and in the SLC between the Bombshelter and Scoops, or from the shop’s Web site at http://sail.uwaterloo.ca/-mjzulian/bike. Email can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The job requirements for the Vice President Internal were subject to extended debate. In fact, the Federation Restructuring Committee had to call back the advertisements for the General Meeting’s agenda after it was sent to press in order to make lastminute changes. The final question is whether change is required. No one involved maintains that the current structure is perfect. However, some point out that the current system has been in use for less than one and a half years. At this rate, students could vote for a different set of positions at each February’s election. While there are those in the Fed Office on both sides of the issue, the final decision rests with the undergraduate students of UW. Every student can vote at the General Meeting, and suggest changes. A complete agenda for the Meeting is presented beginning on page 9 of Imprint. These changes will affect you, so attend the meeting and make your voice heard. In the meantime, contact your Students’ Council representative for more details.
though the salary costs will only increase by $5,000, Bilicic pointed out during an interview that other, hidden expenses will also increase. One prominent example is travel budgets: Executive maintain a $5,000 travel budget while that for Senior Officers is substantially lower. When factors such as this are considered, the cost of restructuring may be prohibitive.
Food Bank boogie by Carla Chalmers special to Imprint
f you didn’t already know, the Federation of Students runs a food bank on campus available to all students. If you did know, now you get to learn a little bit more. The food bank is located in the Student Life Centre room 2131, in the old Feds space. We don’t have much space so all of the extra food we collect from our bins on campus goes to the Region of Waterloo Food Bank, so all of the food donated continues to support our local community. The Turtle bank at the Turnkey desk collects money for the Regional Food Bank, as we do not have a need for money at our food bank, we run strictly on a volunteer basis and have enough food donations to
keep us going. The Thanksgiving Food Drive this year was run by the student societies of ES, AHS, Math and Engineering, where they had a competition to see who could raise the most food and money donations within their society. All of the food collected is being delivered courtesy of Trish Mumby and Kevin O’Keefe directly to the Region’s Food Bank to support their Thianksgiving Food Drive. Your support is appreciated There are food donation bins located at Davis Centre Library, Dana Porter Library, Needles Hall, and The Village Grill on campus. Donations are greatly appreciated. The on campus food bank is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30 to I:30 pm or call or drop by the Fed office to make alternate arrangements to pick up some food.
A token story the referendum by David Imprint
here’s a huge gap between the opinions of Quebecers and those living in the rest of I Canada, according to a recent study conceming preferences of Canada’s relationship with an independent Quebec. In the event of separation, Canadians outside of Quebec want Quebecers to give up their Canadian passports, surrender any jobs they hold outside of Quebec, develop their own currency for use, and forget about any special economic relationships. Almost three quarters of Canadians in the rest of Canada, or TROC, oppose an economic rela-

Quebecers back the idea. Similarly, while three-quarters of Quebecers endorse continuing use of the Canadian dollar, over eighty per cent of those living in TROC oppose such an idea. Regarding the flow of labour, more than 80% of Quebecers are in favour of being able to travel to work in Canada after independence (and vice-versa), while almost two-thirds of those in TROC oppose such an idea. The data presented in this poll indicates that while the tolerance of those Canadians living outside of Quebec for sovereigntist demands is shrinking, Quebecers are more open to the ideas presented.The survey was conducted between September 20-24. -with .Jles from Southam Ak ws

resident Downey will be soliciting student input on UW’s strategy for dealing with the impending cuts, according to a memo to Imprint from Federation of Students President Jane Pak. According to Pak, Dr. Downey held a meeting with the student senators last week to discuss the impacts financial cutbacks may have on UW. The cuts expected this year alone, according to figures supplied to Pak by Downey, may be equivalent in dollar amounts to the budgets of the Science or Math
like amounts since June. Three-quarters of TROC also reject the sovereigntist idea for Quebecers to be allowed to continue using Canadian passports. A slightly smaller amount of
Senators thenews faculties, or $18 million, Pak also learned that tuition fees may double in the next three to five years, as the government allows universities more latitude in setting tuition fees. While the university is currently maintaining a hiring freeze and offering an early retirement program, the severity of the pending cuts may call for more drastic measures. The university may be forced to contract out for services, rather than maintain them within the school as a result of these cuts. There was also discussion, according to Pak, on “the impact that lesser funding would have on the quality

hear of education that UW would be capable of offering.” The government decision on university funding levels is due at the end of this month, at which point Downey offered to revisit these issues with the student senators. According to Pak, “Dr. Downey agreed to set up a future meeting with this group if we felt the need for it. I stated that I would be very much in favour of that.” _ Neither the Federation of Students nor the other student senators have announced any plans or intentions to solicit input from the students they represent on how UW should deal with these cuts.

lation between the ages of approximately 25 and 34. There is a surplus of individuals in this age group, and while they are having trouble finding good jobs, their parents are among the wealthiest age groups in the country. The following generation of young adults aged 18-25 is fewer in number, and thus, suggests Dr. Foot, when they are fmished school will easily find jobs. Canada is one of only four countries that experienced the babyboom generation. The others are the United States, Australia and
he students of Memorial University of Newfoundland held a referendum on October 3 and 4 to determine whether or not they would remain members of the Canadian Federation of Students. Voter turnout was high, acording to election officials at Memorial, indicating that the issue at stake was important to students. Of these students who voted, 70.5% of them voted ‘yes’. “The Federation recently signed a componency agreement
towards the goal that all students of the province be effectively represented on a national level,” said Keith Clarke, CFS Representative for Newfoundland and Labrador. This majority acceptance of the Canadian Federation of Students at Memorial comes as a surprise since many other institutions across Canada have voted to leave the CFS but were barred from doing so by a court order obtained by the CFS. Yet at Memorial, the decision to stay with CFS illustrates the value of service CFS can provide. “Students at Memorial Uni-
New Zealand. Europe was devastated by the second world war, while these four countries received a great number of immigrants, both during and after the war. Europe experienced only a minor boom, In fact, on average, the European population is 15 years older than ours. According to Dr. Foot, this explains why a Disney World near Paris has not been extremeIy successful. On the other hand, Japan did not experience a baby-boom, primarily because of the devastation caused by the drop of the atom bombs near the end of World War II. The country experienced a shortage of human labour in the early 60’s, and was forced to rely on technology to accomplish what had previously been accomplished by a human labour force. Hence, according to Dr. Foot, the expansion and perfection ofJapanese technology occurred. Dr. Foot proposes that the children of the baby-boomers are bitter, and that they’re likely to vote to remove many of the benefits accorded to Ipeople their parents’ age. He cautions that in doing this, they may be unknowingly harming the “senior senior” generation, comprised primarily of poor women aged over 80. These women will suffer if health care services and accommoldation change to a payper-use privilege. Dr. Foot uses demographics to show that bird-watching, gardening, and cuIture are hobbies to invest in. Sports as recreation, in Canada, are no longer as lucrative as they used to be. He also suggests that, if you’re interested in sound financial investments, buying stock in companies making glasses for the f’ailing eyesight of the baby-boomer generation is the way to go.

omen in their late teens and early twenties will gain the upper hand in marriage, suggests economist Dr. David Foot. His research has shown that, in the past, women have chosen mates who are, on average, two years older than they are. The number of young men currently in the age bracket of 20-29 is significantly larger than the age bracket of’ women of 15-19. As a result, when the time comes for these women to marry, on average at age 26, there will be many men to choose from. Dr. David Foot is an economist and demographer at the University of Toronto. On Thursday October 5, he spoke to 130community members. The talk was sponsored by the Waterloo Region Social Resources Council. Demography is the study of human populations, and Dr. Foot believes that the study of demographics can explain 75% of social and economic trends of the past, present and future. He acknowledges that these trends are “evolutionary and not revolutionary, and that the past is obviously very different from the future.” Dr. Foot combines this belief with his Harvard degree in economics, and concludes that scotch, and not beer, is the drink of the future. He bases his predictions on one basic assumption, the fact that every year each person gets one year older. Dr. Foot places the span of baby-boomer births between 1947 and 1966, with the peak birth rate in 196 1. Currently, there are nine million baby-boomers in Canada. He places the infamous and largely unemployed “Generation-X” popu-

student organization is able to provide them with quality services such as Travel CUTS, the Student Work Abroad Program, the International Student Identity Card and the Student Saver Card,” said Guy Caron, National Chairperson of CFS.
“The Federation’s campaigns, research, lobbying and communications resources are important tools that students in Newfoundland can use to get involved in the fight against the Canada Health and Social Transfer. Students also realized that in the present political and economic context it is more important than ever to be member of a strong national student organization,” Caron added. The Federation of Students is Canada’s national student organization. It was formed in 198 1 and today, it purports to represent more than 400 000 students at colleges and universities across Canada. It should be. realized, however, that CFS is not that great at counting: their numbers include 25,ooO members from UW, despite the fact that undergraduates voted to leave in 1993, and never numbered over 20,000 in any case.

imply put, when individual organizations work alone they are less powerful than larger groups. With global restructuring, access to social change is moving beyond the reach of local organizations. So in effect, our ability to create change is threatened. That’s why a unified voice is essential and why the Waterloo Regional Coalion for Social Justice was created. Coalition partners bring together common concerns that all of us share. They pool together knowledge, experience, and skills and direct them where they are needed. Members of the Waterloo Regional Coalition for Social Justice focus their collective energy on the broader issues that challenge us in our day to day work: the widening gap between rich and poor; the steady rise of racism; the role of multinational corporations; global economic restructuring and the erosion of workers’ rights; the afienation of people in a culture bent on consumption and overwork. The Coalition meets regularly to address these concerns and the more specific concerns of its member organizations. The role of the Coalition is to

promote, as a unitied group, through organized campaigns, issues of social justice and environmental improvement, and to counter those who wouldcompromise the quality of life al1 people have a right to expect. Some of the goals of the Coalition are as follows: - To fight against cuts to social programs and public services, the downward pressure on wages, reform attacks on workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance, systemic racism and sexism, and any other issues that members feel are within the mandate. - To express support and objections in letters, pamphlets, and through their presence at conferences and other events. - To help to educate members and their members, circulating printed,electronic, and audio/visual information. - And to lobby local politicians and the political parties at the provincial and national levels of government, The initial framework for the Coalition is based on three closely related concerns: 1 - The growing gap between rich and poor and the detrimental effect this has on women, visible minorities, and aboriginal peoples.
2 - The continued and alarming depletion of natural resources and the loss of community control over management of resources. 3 -The role of multinational corporations and banks in causing the above mentioned problems and in fostering harmful concentrations of wealth, resources, and power that are destroying environmental sustainability and democrattic political control. The Coalition, in cooperation with WPIR.G, is also planning a conference on the weekend of 11 February 1996 for citizen activists.The purpose of the conference is to help increase the skills and contacts of people who are working for social change in this community. Workshops have been held on topics such as developing strategy, protest and1 demonstrations, conflict resolution, popular theatre, cross cultural partnerships,publishing, knowing your legal rights, consensus builtding, municipal and regional lobbying, communications strategy, public meetings, and avoiding burnout. If you are interested in working in the Coalition, the next meeting is Thursday, 0ct 19, 7pm, in BMH, room 1035, or call the WPIRG office for more information.

Rights and International
In Canada we enjoy considerable freedom when it comes to expressing our thoughts in a public forum. We can also be confident that if we do something which does not agree with the law, we will not be treated violently or maliciously by the police. Others have no such guarantees. Basic human rights violations occur everyday, even in countries that are respected by the international community. Our lives are stippled with media events that bring to light a particular human rights violation, but we tend to forget them as quickly as we learn about them. Often the media is more interested in sensationalizing events rather than promoting understanding. However, there are organizations that sincerely care about these issues and are working to help people who are being violated. Like most people, 1 was hesitant to get involved in human rights because I lacked the necessary understanding about the issues involved. What is all the fuss about? Why do we care what happens in other countries? Much of what is reported about human rights violations seems so horrific and impossible that we think it couldn’t all be true. Amnesty international documents human rights cases and lobbies to assist the victims of human rights abuse. Writing letters to national governments is a common and powerful tool used to pressure them into improving conditions in their countries. I know and aknowledge now that people are tortured, raped and detained for things as simple as expressing their own thoughts or for being a part of a particular race or religion. Awareness and understanding is the first step in preventing human rights violations. I have learned recently, that there are many people who put a lot of personal effort into the human rights cause. These people are not attempting to force their beliefs on others; they are simply trying to prevent and stop fundamental problems in the way we treat our fellow humans. For the week of October 15th to 21st, Amnesty International is campaigning to support human rights advocates in other countries. There will be a display in the Student Life Centre on Thursday outlining some of Amnesty’s work. The Amnesty group at UW is also including a typical letter with this article that can be sent to Rawanda. Please sign it and put it in the drop box that will be set up in the Student Life Centre (ask at the Turnkey). The letters will be sent to Rwanda shortly. Please feel free to senlll it yourself

I’ve Been Spending; Autumn Vacation
or, I Gut Dem Old Midtown Munhattan SweatshopBlues Again, Muma
have been on a work term in Manhattan for six weeks now, and I am caught in a conundrum. I would really like to live in this city. But I would very much like to not work for the company that hired me. This article may possibly get me fired, but as worst-case scenarios go, that one is starting to sound pretty tame. Let me talk about the city first. It’s wonderful, literally; “full of wonders.” The streets are endless, teeming with energy and people at all hours - they don’t call it “The City That Never Sleeps” for nothing. There is an overwhelming mass of things to do here. No matter how many you make it to, you’ll still miss a lot of cool stuff. When you are tired of New York City, they say, you are tired of life. It has its downsides, but those are exaggerated by myth. The people are busy and often obnoxious (I overheard a man snap “Do I have “Rolex” stamped on my forehead, bitch?” when a woman asked him for the time.) It’s a cold, impersonal place, and everyone is very willing to ignore you. But it’s nowhere near as dangerous as many believe; while I’m not about to enter Harlem, Central Park, or eastern Alphabet City after dark, I have yet to feel threatened during my exhaustive wanderings, and I have seen no fights and heard no gunfire. There are an astonishing number of drug dealers around; one sleep-deprived Saturday morning, I was offered drugs nine times during a three-hour walk. Apparently sleep deprivation resembles crack withdrawal.) But the dealers are
more pathetic than intimidating. They cluster around you, reciting their chant “Smoke? Rock? Weed, man?” and when they finally reaiize they’re not going to make a sale, they get this puppy-dog wounded look in their eyes that leaves you feeling vaguely guilty about the whole encounter. Despite all that, I love this place. It makes Waterloo seem like a morgue (actually, even Waterloo made Waterloo seem like a morgue,) I’m having a great time outside of work. Now let’s talk about the the company I’m working for. This is the part of the article where I will be using the word “appalling” a lot. (For you non-English-majors out there, “appalling” is “awful” with rabies.) As in: the company’s treatment of their four co-op students has been appalling. Our living conditions are appalling. Their pre-arrival description of what we would be doing and how we would be living was, at best, an appalling misrepresentation. At one point, because the account manager lied to a client, I was forced to sneak into a position with a major Fortune 500 media corporation under false pretenses, and instructed
never met in order to get some work done. One of my fellow students worked 87 hours last week and will be doing at least 60 hours/ week for the foreseeable future; not wanting to pay himovertime because, quote, “it would set a dangerous precedent for our other employees,” the company later recompensed him, albeit grudgingly. Another has just
worked a 62-hour week, again not knowing whether he’ll be getting paid overtime at all. It was explained to us that, “This company rewards people in a different way for their work - for example, ‘we might send you to Seattle for a week’s training at Microsoft.” (This was presumably intended as an example of a reward. Also note the “might.“) Two of us are in jobs that have nothing to do with what we signed up for; one was hired for network administration, and is doing tech support, and the other came to develop multimedia and instead works at tech support and primitive programming. The company’s sales manager luxurialtes in the fact that he knows nothing about what he’s selling, and we co-op students no longer believe a word the head of the company tells us. Let us name names here. The company’s name is MediaServ, and they intend to hire a significant number of Waterloo students this term and thereafter. I believe they are interviewing this week. This article is half-intended as a warning *to those students who might work for them; I think they should at least have some idea what they’re getting into. Lord

Profs’ kids not getting free ride To the Editor, As a member of the “superprivileged,” I would like to respond to Colleen Dean’s letter to the Editor entitled “Profs’ kids getting free ride,” (Imprint, October 6th.) If any letter could be farther from the truth, this is the one. Collen is misinformed. Profs kids receivehay tuition benefits as well as staff, there is no difference. WLU receives full tuition benefits, not UW. This is simply one of the perks of having a good and stable job, not unlike employees of Schneider’s receiving Schneider’s products at near cost prices. Perhaps Colleen could do some research before indulging in blatant ostracizing stereotypes. I do not know Colleen’s friends; nor do I care to. As the son of a professor here at Waterloo, I find it insulting that Colleen has generalized all relations to professors as lazy people who take advantage of the system and, “take 8 years to complete a degree.” In addition to this scathing rub, she continues to imply that we are all rich and will continue to get richer because of “free tuition.” My family is well-to-do, nut rich, and as it stands I am ineligible for an OSAY loan. However, I graciously accept a massive loan from my father to continue my schooling. Colleen, “Defender of the Underprivileged,” let’s do away wit-h stereotypes and generalizations, and start researching before we open our big mouths and create fact from fiction - there’s enough of that in the world today. Oh, and Colleen, I do know how lucky I am for getting an education; so should you.
Profs’ kids not getting free ride To the Editor, I too, like Colleen Dean (Imprint, Oct.@, have comments to make concerning the issue of professors’ children. I am a child of a professor. I do not have a car, nor do I have a motorcycle. I am in second-year Honours Political Science, and I will graduate in two years. I resent the fact that Ms. Dean generalizes what she knows of profs’ kids to all of us. Surely Ms. Dean has learned that this type of stereotyping is unfair and often untrue. 1 do not believe that 1 am wasting the university’s money. I believe that the tuition reduction from which 1 benefit is, in turn, a work benefit for my father. Perhaps it is
important to explain to Ms. Dean and others who may be confused that as a child of a professor, I receive a tuition deduction of 50%. However, this is only a reduction on the base fee shown on our tuition fees. I receive no reduction of any of the auxiliary fees indicated on this statement. Evidently, the reduction is far less than Ms. Dean had presupposed. My education is certainly not free of charge. Perhaps it is also important to note that this benefit applies to all children of all permanent, full-time staff employed by the university, including secretaries, janitors, and technicians. This is not a case of the “rich getting richer.” This is a case of hard-working people enjoying the benefits of their jobs. In the future, I hope that Ms. Dean will conduct a more thorough investigation of her facts before she unnecessarily raises her blood pressure. -Pati% Lenard
Political To the Editor, I enjoy reading the Imprint because there is always a point of view presented which I hadn’t previously considered. Such was the case upon reading the Rant in last week’s issue. The author proposed paying politicians more money to induce qualified people to take office. An interesting concept to be sure, but I found some of the author’s assumptions to be ill-founded. The author points out that most of the recent important politicians have been lawyers, accountants (a calculating profession indeed), and members of other prestigious groups. The author also correctly suspects that many competent professionals and educated people would do as good a job or better on Parliament Hill if they were so inclined to run in an election. However, the author appears to be under the impression that only those individuals who are “professionals” or “educated,” both loose terms at best, would make competent politicians. What the author fails to realize is that there are other types of people who would make excellent politicians such as artists (I’d have voted for TomThompson), bus drivers, construction workers, farmers, domestic engineers, teachers and many other vocations. You know... this may be Wayne Gretzky’s last year playing professional hockey. Okay, so maybe I’m naive in thinking that a hockey player could become Prime Minister. My point is that good politicians need not come from the ranks of the professional, business or academic elite. Competent politicians can and should spring from all walks of life. The author also asserts that many people are dissuaded from politics because of the intense media scrutiny of their personal and
family lives. This is indeed true. However, the author also implies that many of the lawyers, accountants and others face a massive cut in earning potential by pursuing politics and therefore stay in private practice. Salary is not the only motivation in pursuing a vocation or profession, and it should have no bearing on becoming a politician. I know of someone who aspires to become a lawyer because he is interested in reaching his personal potential as an individual, contributing to change in society, and the genuine satisfaction of guiding others through a complicated legal system. I’m sure that this person sounds a little naive as well, although he readily admits that income is a factor in wanting to become a professional, it’s just not his primary motivation. As for politics, this person has no ambitions, not because of the potential income loss, or the life from within a fish bowl, but rather he is just weary of politics after having studied for four years at an unnamed university. I should note that I am glad the author shares my (hopefully not naive) faith in the democratic system. “Rant on!” -Jason Moyse 4B Political Science

To the Editor, The fullowing is a lettersent to Ah. Jane Pak, on Wednesday, Septrmber 27, 199.5, regarding the CASA document on the future ofpst-secondury education: Ms. Pak, Regarding the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations proposal on the future of post-secondary education, I have many problems. I have problems with the document itself, which I will address in a moment, but my main concern is with how this issue was handled by the Federation of Students. I obtained a copy of the document from the Federation of Students Office in the Student Life Center. The date on this document is September 2 1, 1995. However, the respective student societies on campus were not notified until September 27, 1995, a full 6 days after the fact, and, not surprisingly, the same day on which the Federation of Students Council intended to vote on the proposal. Clearly, it seems that there was an attempt here to approve the document without proper consultation from the student body. Is there something to hide, Ms. Pak? Of the people I have spoken to today, only about 1 in 10 were aware that the proposal existed, and that the Federation of Students were voting on it today. And considering the 2500 or so students that are off-campus on co-op work terms (how soon we forget, Ms. Pak), and will not even learn of these events until they re-
turn in January, you have endeavoured to unilaterally make a decision which will affect thousands of people’s entire careers without so much as notifying that you were doing so. Is this what we can expect from responsible student govemment, Ms. Pak? What I propose, Ms. Pak, is to take time and allow each student the opportunity to review the proposal and recommend changes. Are we in any hurry to implement this proposal? Once changes to the proposal are recommended, send it to a campus-wide referendum, which could be conducted without additional cost during the Fed exec elections during the winter term. In this way, everyone has time to get informed, and everyone has a say in determining the outcome. If a referendum produces a “YES” vote, then present this to CASA along with the amendments aforementioned. This is what responsible student government is about, Ms. Pak. Now, to my concerns with the document itself. The first concern is with the proposed rationalisation of adminstrative services amongst universities in a region. However, on the same page, the statement is made that each university has a separate mission, and the process must real&e this. So what this seems tobe saying is that, yes, we must have central adminsitration for universities, but that we must provide customised administation services for each university. There seems to be a logic gap there somewhere. This type of system would become an
administrative nightmare. Secondly, with respect to the National Distance Education University. Again, this does not address the problem of administration for universities with different missions, and again this would become an administrative nightmare. Thirdly, with regards to the abolishment of the “academic guild” system: we must still regulate the “skill set” that a student acquires during their undergraduate career. Otherwise, students will tend to learn job-specific skills and will suffer in todays transitional job market accordingly. The GBC and CBC must be made more specific. I agree that these taxes would be a good way for graduates to pay for their post-secondary education; however, there are important amendments which must be made. First, the proportion of the GBC and the CBC must be set correctly. As a general rule, a university grad contributes about 10 times as much to the GNP as they are paid. So, the proportion of the CBC to the GBC shouldbe set accordingly. Secondly, the GBC must be accompanied by a corresponding drop in tuition fees. Adding on this tax after the fact only increases the cost of an education. By deferring the cost (i.e., dropping tuition and adding the tax), a post-secondary education suddenly becomes accessible for tens of thousands more young Canadians. This would ultimately result in an increase in the GNP, and a correContinued
on page 14
sponding increase in revenues from the GBC and CBC. Finally, the transfer of funds to universities must be clarified. Transferring funds on a per-project basis will skew funding heavily towards the Engineering and Science disci-
plines, since these projects tend to be larger and more numerous. Transferring on a GNP-contribution basis is also a bad idea, since engineering and science grads tend to contribute more to the GNP. The only viable solutions would be to allocate funds on a per-enrollement or per-graduate basis.
In conclusion, Ms. Pak, I sincerely hope that you will listen to the students who will be contacting you today and attending the Federationof Students meeting tonight. I think you will find that what you are attempting to do about the proposal is not satisfactory, and I hope that you will act accordingly. That

Natives not getting too much #6 To the Editor, After reading several articles in the Imprint from the previous two weeks, I am now tempted to add my two cents to the debate about the Native Indian situation. First off, I can’t believe how many people out there feel that the Indians deserve anything they ask for. If my family was buried on somebody’s land and I felt compelled to show up with my clan and bombard myself on the land with as many weapons as I could get my hands on, how many people out there would feel the same way about my family as they do about the Native Indians? How long do we as
Do killers have any rights? What sort of treatment does one person who has killed another person deserve? And most importantly, do they deserve a second chance? This is of course a difficult question. Society cannot function if people are going to be killing each other all the time (this is perhaps why society started in the first place, so that man can escape “the state of nature” where exactly this sort of thing evidently happened all too often according to Hobbes) and so murder must be discouraged in the strongest possible ways. However, murder will still occur, and society must decide what to do with those that kill. Of course, there are degrees of murder. First degree (premeditated, meaning you planned it), second degree (where you didn’t plan to kill someone but you did anyway), and manslaughter, both voluntary and involuntary. Today, I will deal only with those convicted of murder in the first degree. In Canada, there is no death penalty (too bad), and so the lawmakers have decided that unless someone gets classified as a dangerous offender (which is quite difficult to do), a11 murders get the same deal, 25 years in jail with the option to apply for parole after 15 years. Now, evidently, a movement is starting up which seeks to remove this option. The KW Record (Sept. 28, 1495) evidently supports this, with the blurb on page Al concerning the article inside saying “So, serial killer Clifford Olson can request parole on Jan. 14, 1997. All the details and the horror of the crime will be reviewed, hurting victims of crime all over again.” While this is unfortunately true, removing this option would be a bad move for several different reasons:
Friday, October 13, 1995 a Canadian nation have to apologize for what our ancestors did to the Native Indians? I’m sorry that your land was taken away from you but it happened, deal with it! ! I’m sick to death about hearing the Native Indians bitching and whining that they want more of this and more of that. They don’t have to pay taxes or GST, not to mention getting a free education (that includes a post-secondary education) and money from the government. You don’t hear the blacks from Africa bitching and whining that they were brought to our country against their will on slave ships and that they want the Government to reimburse them for the pain and suffering of their ancestors. My family has a cottage on Indian land and I can’t believe how poorly the Indians treat their land. The garbage that they discard on the the ground and in the water is disgusting. Not to mention the amount of fish they are taking out of the lakes, not for personal use but to sell commercially. When the lake is too rough to be able to get out to the water the fish rot inside the nets. Continued

1. Some people may deserve parole. There is a major difference between people like Clifford Olson who sexually assaulted and murdered young boys, and someone who assists in a euthanasia where the “murdered” person clearly, concisely and re:peatedly asked for their life to be ended, but was unable to do it themselves for whatever reason (e.g. the anonymous doctor who helped Sue Rodriguez end her life) but is convicted of first degree murder anyway (because, in Canada where politicians refuse to act to change this outdated law, it still is considered such). 2. Parole doesn’t have to be granted (which is a very important point. People don’t think Olson will actually get parole, but some don’t want him to even be able to ask), yet it serves as hope for the Lifers. This acts as an incentive for prisoners to behave well in prison. If they know that they have no chance for early release, yet will automatically be released after 25 years, they can behave as badly as they want (short of acts that will result in further sentences) with no negative consequences. 3. People do have a right to have their case reviewed. 15 years is a long time, and it is entirely possible tha.t in 15 years someone can have really changed. The media reports the stories of people who get parole a.nd go out and then go and rape and pillage, but there are no stories about people who come out of prison, get jobs and become nontial, protductive members of society, not blecause it doesn’t happen, but because it just isn’t news. Denying convicted first-degree murderers the chance of parole would be wrong, for ail these reasons. I know the families of the victims are still hurting, but that pain will never go away, and making the prisoners wait until it does would be a mistake.

They cut the nets and let tfiem drift to shore collecting more fish on the way, I find this attitude reprehensible. In the winter time you always see corn and salt sticking out when walking in the forest where the In-
dians sit and shoot at the animals that come to eat the food they lay out for them. This action is illegal except for when the Native Indians do it. I know I’ll have a lot of people upset with me about this letter but I feel that people should realize how
well the Native Indians really do take care of “their” land. How long do you think our country (not to mention the animal life) would last if the Native Indians were given back all “their” land? -Joanna

Northwestern Professioml The U.S. presidential race is always interesting to watch because it takes the pulse of one of the most complex and important nations on the planet. It also usually gives an indication of changes in the political winds that will eventually take hold in one form or another across the continent. However, the 1996 election will be largely an indication of a shift to the Right in mainstream opinion, one which has already taken hoid and will merely be solidified by the election of the next President, While it may be premature, here is my rather selective assessment of the people in the race. The Maybes Colin Powell is doing a book tour at the moment, amidst much speculation that he will soon throw his hat into the ring. However, the question is really academic, since he will never get elected. The first black - sorry, African-American President? Now? I don’t think so. Regardless of his qualifications, there are still far too many groups that would rather die than allow a black person to have the so-called most important job in the world. I need not mention a certain recent event that also helped to put an end to any of his presidential aspirations. Ross Perot is back with his decision to found a party to field a third candidate. Another question mark, to be sure. If he actually goes through with a campaign he could make the race very interesting once again. If he can overcome the Texas Facror (a quick explanation: Perot is from Texas. If the alarm bells aren’t ringing in your head yet, they should be. Hopefully his candidate will be from a less insane state), his candidate may even become a serious contender. While there is no time like the present to be running as an independent, chances for this candidate are still slim, since the public will need good reason to move away from the Republicans to a slightly different platform with an unknown. Newt Gingrich is still immensely popular in the United States, despite the fact that almost all of the mainstream press fears him. I must concede that he is speeding up the legislative process. It seems unlikely that he will actually enter the race though, since he is arguably more powerful and effective where he is at the moment. He can attempt to subtly marshall public opinion from the sidelines and help the country elect someone more to his liking. A scary thought. The U.S. needs someone in the White House to fulfill their intention of having checks and balances on the reins of power. They definitely need a check on Newt Gingrich.
The Republicans Scarier still is the fact that Pat Buchanan is still around. This is made worse still by the fact that his extremely Right-wing platform is now considered almost mainstream for Republicans. Bob Dole is leading in the polls at the moment. A war veteran and a staunch supporter of a return to those halcyon family values, he had to return a donation from a gay rights group because their agenda conflicted with those of some of his Right-wing religious supporters. Politicalreality, unfortunately. Dole shows evidence of many of the characteristics that made Reagan so loveable to the American public - old, friendly and not quite in touch with reality, as was shown by his comment thatTrue Liesconstituted good family viewing. 00~s. For a Republican, he is pretty rational and innocuous. President Dole? It could happen, and it might not even be the end of the world if it does.

The Incumbent Bill Clinton is well-intentioned and one of the few to realize that the U.S. health ctie system is far more costly and inefficient than most other countries’ publicly funded systems. He has also taken firm action in the former Yugoslavia, showing an element of realpditik (it appears that the U.S. and others allowed the war to rage on to a point where the ethnic boundaries would be more clear cut as a result of territorial gains and losses.) Given another term, I think Clinton could bring some sanity to the U.S. and further develop what has slowly become an increasingly coherent foreign policy. However, I think he will not return, paying for his earlier incompetence and his unwillingness to follow the tide towards the Right. However, The Economist pointed out this week that a third candidate backed by Perot could split the Republican vote, opening the door for a Clinton victory. There is a chance yet. There you have it. Ultimately, as with any democratic system, the President is a figurehead and must work very hard and be very adept in order to accomplish anything outside of this role. This is not to say that it doesn’t matter who is President. With an army of advisors, appointed civil servants, a budget dominated by military interests, and unbelievable opposition to any progressive change away from Old Testament values, the President’s powers in the United States are not always that great. He knows little more than what he is told and thus can do little that is not desired by the political establishment of the period (the Republicans at the moment), It does matter who is President, but not as much as we might think it does.

Alternative Educations T
he Triangle School is a pilot project of the Toronto Bored Of Education, MP John Campy brought the idea for the school to the Bored of Ed and it’s now a reality for marginalized Queer youth who would not be in school otherwise. Many of the students had difficulties before bringing homophobia into the equation of youth. While some heterosexual students are bigots, the majority could care less if you’re queer or straight. The homophobia at metro high schools came from teachers, principals, parent-teacher associations and the curriculum. Gay students were locked out of the high school experience, and when they needed help there was ignorance in the system, and a preconceived 1960’s response to their concerns - hence the Triangle School. The school has 19 gay students, 5 of which are lesbians and 2 of which are persons of color. The coordinator is a gay white male and there is a lesbian part-time teacher. One would hope that as this project grows, more lesbian youth will choose to attend and will be able to feel comfortable in the predominately male, white school, As in any other high school sexism is already an issue. Can gay males be sexist? It is my opinion that they can and often are. And the lovely lesbians at the school have put this important issue on the Tri-
angles tables. It is my opinion that this question will finally receive the attention it deserves. And in the school’s formative years, male female representation, will offer the students an interesting way in which to look at their curriculum: Homohistory, literature by gays and lesbians, Art, film and architecture as well as sociology, psychology and math. All these courses meet the high academic standards of high school dropout and new provincial Education Minister Al Palidini. Students choose to go to the Triangle School. They are not sent there as a punishment or to be segregated from society. These students have an opportunity to study a gay past as well as to formulate responses to present day issues, from child care to bicycle helmets, to the inaccessibility of gay pride celebrations for youth because of their high cost and age requirements. Another, Bored of Ed pilot project starting up this year is the African Focus School. The school offers courses for black students. These courses allow students an opportunity to choose the content of their courses. The school uses resources, texts, language, art, media, and videos that have a black focus and how the world relates to bl&ck and African societies as well as how Africans and blacks have shaped Canadian society. Whereas in the mainstream school system the curriculum is Eurocentric and

often racist as well as sexist. Toronto’ s Alternative Schools have never had a balance of races within their student body. I feel this is because it would make little sense to leave your assigned high school a& its curriculum to go to an alternative school that has the same Eurocentric curriculum but with a leftist agenda. Suppose the student is a black conservative who is subjected to repeated racial attacks: Why would she go to a leftist school? What about a Jamaican feminist who puts racism at par with sexism? It’s doubtful that either of these women would have their educational goals met in the mainstream alternative school system. These two students can now choose to attend a school that will allow the Tory to get on with her business and the feminist can deal with sexism. Racism will still exist but perhaps these students will receive a reprieve from the visual, linguistic and structural assaults they receive every day. I think it is about time that the Bored of Ed put its back behind its Fight Racism policy and started to offer more than buttons and banners in the fight against bigots and the white paranoia that exists when persons of color, women andqueers have the audacity to meet in groups of more than 10 for purposes of education, politic al activism, or discussion. --Shirley
be resolved Real Soon Now... or so they tell us.) Did I mention that my roommate, who’s representing MediaServ at a bank on Wall Street, was instructed to lie about his degree, his certification, his experience, and his age? This is simply the tip of the iceberg. In the words of Dave Barry, “I am not making this up.” We were originally told we would be staying at the student residences at. Columbia. Three days before we left, we were informed that instead the company would be renting us an apartment, with some computers that would be cleared out by the time we got there. When we arrived, we found to our dismay that the “apartment” was a comer of the company’s office space. (Again, 1 am not making this up.) They told us they’d move to new space and leave us the whole area on September 8th. Which became September Uth... and today (October 6), though the company has mostly moved out, we had people working here until 10 PM. We have bookcases for walls, a miniscule kitchen, and a juryrigged shower with the water pressure permanently set to “drool.” The people at the company honestly don’t see anything wrong with how we’ve been treated. Their attitude is “It’s good enough for students.” They seemed genuinely taken aback when they realized I wasn’t going to jump at the chance of working here full-time. I suppose this is partly the fault of the previous co-op students, who took all this lying down.
I’m going to try to be evenhanded here. In the company’s defense, I don’t think that we, the Co-op students, are being deliberately lied to; I think that MediaServ means what they say when they say it, but that the resolve has fled their mind moments later. There are some reasonable and competent people working for the company; unfortunately, they’re not in charge. Urn, Occasionally they take us out for dinner. ‘That’s about it for the defense. I hope this doesn’t come across as a hatchet job from a disgruntled employee. There’s some truth to that viewpoint, I suppose, but 1 have endeavoured to be fair, refrain from personal attacks, and simply report the facts. I have attempted to talk to the head of the company about my concerns - last time I tried, he muttered at me through clenched teeth “This is getting annoying.” Is till don’t regret coming here. . . but I have a more laissezfaire attitude than, well, anyone I know. But I suggest that anyone planning on working for MediaServ should think. about it long and hard.

THINK BEFORE YOU DRINKI, the ability
BY SCOTT MORTON SPECIAL TO IMPRINT
l-iP \ acchus was the Roman go of wine, drunkenn and debauchery Why would you name group promoting alcoho awareness after such a figure? This is a question that’s often asked. After contemplating question, I’ve emerged w answer that I hope will make BACCHUS make more sense to you. Yes, indeed. Bacchus was the god which Romans believed provoked mere mortals into drunkenness, excess, wild orgies, and all sorts of crazy things. In the twentieth century, we know that humans are not controlled by cosmic forces, nor are they lacking control over their individual fates. We recognize that people have free will and
choices. Choice is the cornerstone of BACCHUS’ philosophy. We believe in allowing individuals to make responsible choices about alcohol, ;ed on respect for yourself and othe&. Allow me to expand on our philosophy, and in the
Aside from beine a mythological fig&e, B ACCHUS is an acronym which stands for Boosting Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students. BACCHUS is not an anti-alcohol organization. Instead, we promote moderation and respect. If you choose
not to drink, that’s your choice. If you choose to drink, moderation is key. Moderation involves a conscious choice by individuals to know their limits and to stick to them. Going past that limit can lead to any number of consequences. Drinking and driving is probably the most obvious of the poor choices one can make with regards to alcohol. Sadly, however, people still make the wrong choice with deadly and destructive consequences every year. Alcohol is also very often a factor in date rape: in about 75% of such cases, at least one person involved has been drinking. Out of control, alcohol can destroy families and friendships, and wreak havoc on your physical, emotional, and mental health. University students know better than any other segment of the population the destructive effects that alcohol CanpotentiaEZy have. It was for that reason that BACCHUS was formed in 1976 at the University of Florida by Gerard0 Gonzales. Now, BACCHUS has hundreds of affiliate schools accross North America, with 81 of them in Canada. The University of Waterloo BACCHUS has been an affiliate since 1985. Our group’s most current endeavour is Alcohol Awareness Week. We’re part of this annual national event, which runs October 16 - 20. Come and see our booth in the Student Life Centre. We’ll also be bringing in MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving.) There is a movie night in the Student Life Centre on

You’ll see our posters up all over campus, promoting the theme of the week, “Don’t follow in their footsteps.” The theme ilustrates our philosophy of individual choice and resistance to peer pressure. BACCHUS will be keeping busy throughout the rest of the year, planning to be part of MADD’s Red Ribbon Campaign against impaired driving, which wilf be happening near exam time. We’ll also be in the Santa Claus Parade on November 18, and will be holding another awareness week, Safe Break Week, immediately before Spring Break during the Winter term. We don’t plan to preach, just Boost Your Consciousness (remember the acronym.) We are all capable of falling into the “it can’t happen to me” trap. If nothing else, BACCHUS’ aim is to remind you to respect alcohol as a drug, respect others, and be aware of the consequences your use of alcoho1 can have on them. Most of all, respect yourself.

SPORTS Warriors by Ryan Imprint
his past weekend, while most Waterloo students were home stuffing themselves with turkey, the hockey Warriors were at Columbia IceFields, attempting to stuff the net full of goals in the Annual Oktoberfest Tournament. Seven rival universities geared up for the chance to knock off the Warriors, the defending champions, and claim the prestigious banner that signifies early-season supremacy. The tournament is a good chance for coaches and players to size up the competition because most teams send their finalized rosters to send a message to the rest of the league. The Warriors opened on 1+-iday against the Ottawa Gee-Gees in a game that made the Seattle Mariners’ win over the Yanks seem petty. Down 3-2 in the third, and fearing an embarassing relegation to the losers bracket of the tournament, Steve Smith, a determined veteran forward, hoisted the Warriors up on his back, and carried&them home. Wearing number 9, and playing like Gordie Howe, Rocket Richard, and Bobby Hull rolled into one uniform, Smith brought a smile to the Warrior faithful by tying the game midway through the period, and adding the winner a mere nineteen seconds from Zamboni time. Smith sent his team an important message that will stick the rest of the year: don’t ever quit. Steve, himself, has fought through a recurring knee injury requiring numerous surgeries, and no one deserved being the game hero more than Smith. The goal scorers in the Warrior 4-3 win were Smith with his dramatic two, Greg Esdale, and Mike Chambers. Mark Cardiff and Jeff Goldie both added two helpers. Joe Harris went the distance in goal for the Warriors. The line of Steve Smith, Jeff Goldie, and Peter Brearley had an excellent game, their physical and

offensive presence creating Waterloo’s own “Legion of Doom” line. Saturday evening, while the Leafs were being dismantled by the Pens in Pittsburgh, the Warriors met the Brock Badgers in the tournament semi-final. Unfortunately, the Warriors suffered the same fate as the Buds, losing 7-4. The game looked promising, though. Tied 2-2 after one period, and 3-3 after the second, the Badgers exploded for four in the final frame to advance to the championship match against Western. Captain John Wynne opened the Warrior scoring on the power play, blasting a howitzer past Badger goalie Bob Harrison. Mark Vaughan added another near the end of the first period. In the second, Chris Kraemer scored a short-handed marker, snapping a loose puck in the s!ot home through a screen. Matt St. Germain rounded out the scoring in the Brock-dominated third. Joe Harris played the entire game for the Warriors in goal, allowing six goals, two on the p?wer

play. The Badgers added an emptynetter. On Sunday, because of the loss to Brock, the Warriors played division rival Windsor in the consolation final. The game surprised the hell out of the Warriors because of the ease in which they won. The Lancers barely stayed interested enough to last three periods as they provided less competition than the Warriors expected. Waterloo dominated the entire game, beating Windsor 7-2. Jeff Goldie began the scoring parade on a power-play in the first. Then, the second period belonged to the Warriors, scoring four times on Windsor goalie Chris Sharland. Chris displayed a cool helmet, but unfortuately, it didn’t help him stop the puck. Mike Chambers beat Sharland twice in the period, with singles going to rookies Matt McKenna and Derek Austin. Waterloo added two more before sixty minutes were up. Chris Kraemer continued his fine weekend with a marker and Dwayne
Johnson sniped a beauty shorthanded. Chris O’Sullivan notched three assists. Scott Pattinson played shutout hockey through forty minutes, and was relieved by Harris in the third. Both Lancer goals came on the power-play. Despite finishing third in the tournament, the Warriors have a lot to be pleased about. First, Waterloo demonstrated disciplined hockey. Throughout the tournament and exhibit ions, WaterIoo has kept their penalty minutes down, which wi!I bode well during the regular season. Second, the Warrior special teams shocked their opponents. They’ve managed at least a puwerplay goal a game, and scored two while short-handed. The offense is balanced and effective. Lastly, veteran forward Chris Kraemer is playing like the leader he is. Kraemer looked comfortabie with the puck, making good decisions offensively, and setting up scoring opportunities. He also skated with his usual zest and power. Kraemer also summed up the weekend for the Warriors. “We showed a lot of character in the Ottawa game,” observed Kraemer“In the Brock game, we experimented a lot with line combinations, getting different people used to playing with each other.” Kraemer was, as were the other Warriors, disappointed with the team’s finish, but saw many good things develop from the week-end. “We stood up to Ottawa’s physical play,” remarked Kraemer, a good sign that the Warriors won’t fold when the going gets tough. “We’d have !:iked to play Western in the finals, but it wasn’t meant to be. We’ll just have to wait for that one.” Kraemer and the Warriors have this weekend off, and are back in action next Thursday against Ryerson. The tournament was one by the Mustangs, who the Warriors will meet October 27.
Three straight wins for football Warriors by Peter Imprint
hree consecutive wins and a share of third place. Every thing’s hunky dory, right? Not exactly. The Watertoo Warrior football team may be 3-2 and on course for a playoff berth, but the team Iooked less than spectacular in a 20- 16 win versus the University of GuelphGryphons last Saturday, and tomorrow face the no.- 1 team in the nation, the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks, who are fresh off a 42-13 pounding of the McMaster Marauders. But, if defence wins games, the Warriors may in better shape than they appeared against Guelph. Led by Shawn Dyson andTony
Captain Tony Garland snags his 2nd pick of the year, Ryan Kirk (41) and Richard Riha (70) help out. Garland, UW’s defenders harassed and compressed the Gryphons, keeping their offence out of the
endzone. Dyson set up the winning score by tackling punter Jason Petch at
Guelph’s X)-yard !ine after a high third-down snap. Five plays later, with 3:32 to play, tailback Jarrett Smith plunged over from three yards out to put Waterloo up 1!O- 16. Earlier in the second half, both DysonandGarland had touchdownsaving tackles on Gryphon Rob Popkey that limited the Gryphons to three points on two trips inside Waterloo’s ten-yard line. Both players had interceptions as well, along with safety Trevor Trodd and linebacker Jason Van Geel.

Swim team opens season
UW Swim to Imprint
he Warrior and Athena Swim Teams began the season last Wednesday at home versus Guelph and Laurier. The women led the way with an upset win over the Hawks. Out-numbered, the Athenas swam brilliantly. Captain Kara Rice led by example as she out-touched teammate Sheryl Sanders to win the 200m individual medley. Kara smoked the field in winning the 200m breaststroke and swam on the third place 200 medley relay. Veteran Amy Jarvis looked very strong swimming the 8OOm freestyle. Her strategy for the gruelling race paid off, as she made a tremendous push at the end that resulted in a 2nd place finish. Jarvis was 3rd in the 20Om back and anchored the 2nd place 4x50 freestyle relay. Fifth-year senior Jenn Beatty swam a strong 2nd in the IOOm breaststroke, as well as a 5th in the 200. Much to the delight of the coaching staff, the rookie Athenas swam impressively and are already showing signs of improvement. Rookie sensation Sheryl Sanders finished 2nd in the IOOm backstroke and 2nd in the 200m individual medley and led the medley relay. Amy Merschback captured 3rd in the 5Om freestyle and 4th in the freestyle. Jenn Pells is another strong frosh. Pells placed 3rd in a dead heat 200m freestyle and 6th in the 1OOm butterfly. Jocelyn Stephen was rock steady in the freestyles finishing 4th and 5th in the 200 and 100 respectively. Jennifer Orrange was 4th in both the IOOm freestyle and the 200m backstroke. Doris “Doe” Ho helped the medley relay to a 3rd place finish, as well as helping herself to a 4th in the 100 fly and 5th in the 1OOm backstroke. Sue jones scored a point in the women’s 50m freestyle and an injured Melanie Wilson scored in the JOOm breaststroke. With this core of young talent, the Athenas are building for the future, and with the potential for improvement shown by these outstanding athietes, Waterloo could become a major factor at O.W.I.A.A. level. The Warriors have a strong contingent this year, and they made this clear as they took on the Guelph and Laurier squads last Wednesday. John “Red Dog” Harland led the way with two 2nd place finishes and a 3rd. Red Dog took a bite out of the field as he

swallowed up their share of golf balls. Even players who managed to avoid the hazards were by no means guaranteed of making pars, as most of the greens featured several tiers, making putting very challenging. When the dust settled at the end of the first day of play, Waterloo had two players in the top 25. Kelly SIough, a 2nd year Masters student in Earth Sciences and also a rookie with the Warriors was in 20th place with an 84. Steve Woods who is a PhD. student in Computer Science and a four year veteran of the Warrior golf program had three birdies to finish with 76, in a four way tie for first place. The Warriors were sitting in 7th place on the day, but were only three strokes from being in 4th place, and the team was looking forward to making up ground the next day. Tuesday dawned neither clear nor sunny, and the team teed off in a steady rain. The weather only worsened, and after 14 holes when several of the greens had two centimetres of standing water on their surface, play was cancelled for the day. This left the organizers with the dilemma of deciding who to declare the winner. In the end, the first nine holes of play on the second day were used in the team competition, but the individual awards were given based on the first day’s scores. The Warriors moved from 7th to 6th in the team competition based on their first nine holes. For the first time in the history of OUAA golf, however, the individual award had to be shared by four competitors, one of those being the Warriors captain, Steve Woods. This is the first time since 1972 that a Waterloo golfer has taken away the Len Shore trophy for lowest individual score in the OUAA Championship. This award was also shared by Luke Saunders of Ottawa, Drew Symons of Laurier and Senay Redde of McMaster. Rob Bladon was also named to the OUAA First All Star Team based on his Top 5 points standing for the year. Although the team didn’t finish as high as they would have liked in the final event, it was still a successful season for the Warriors with the individual awards, second place finish at the Western Invitational and earlier first place finish at the York Invitational.

brought the 4x50 medley relay team from behind on his anchor leg to finish 2nd. He then added a 3rd in the 50m freestyle and 2nd in the 1OOm backstroke to lead all point scorers for the Warriors. Super rookie Andrew Moffat joined Harland on the relay and grabbed 3rd in both the 100 and 200 breaststrokes. Sophmore Greg Stump added to the Warriors point totals with a 3rd place finish in the 200m freestyle and a 4th in the 1OOm butterfly. Greg was also part of the medley relay, swimming the fly legs. James Ryans finished 3rd and 4th as well, scoring his points in the grueling distance events. James was 3rd in the 800m freestyle and 4th in the 400 free to complete the tough double. Rookie Alan Nagy was 4th in the 800 and 6th in the 1OOm fly. Old timer and fifthyear veteran Sean Lashmar proved there is still plenty of gas left in the old tanks as he swam to a 4th in the 200m freestyle and a 5th in the 1OOm backstroke. Rob “The Fonz” Rogut placed 6th in the 50m free and a close 5th in the 200 backstroke. Bryan Normandin is injury free this year and is rapidly becoming one of the most consistant swimmers on the team. Bryan led the 200 medley relay, and along with Moffat, Stump and Harland finished 2nd. He then went on to finish 4th in both the 2qO individual medley and backstroke. Teammate Chris Palin had a pair of 6th place finishes in 800 and 100 free. Junior Trevor Denstedt was 6th in the 200 individual medley and 6th in 400 free. Sohpmore Adrian Mendes went 7th in the 50 free and eighth in the 100. Rookie Steve Dibiase overcame some equipment difficulties to finish 7th and 8th in the 200 and 400 metre freestyles. Brad Kelly helped the medley relay B team finish 4th place along with Mendes, Denstedt and Rogut. Brad also placed7th in the 100 breast. Veteran Jay Cull scored in the 400 free with a 5th place finish and rookie Karl Richter added some points of his own in both the 100 free and 200 backstroke. Rookie Omar Lensfesty scored in the painful 100 fly and the 200 individual medely as well, finishing eighth in both. Mark Abraham had a strong showing in the 100 back scoring a point with a seventh place finish. the free A team of Palin, Nagy, Ryans and Lashmar placed third while the B team of Diabiase, Richter, Cull and Adlam was fifth. Youth and a lot more depth should help this team rise to the top of their division and stay ther for quite some time.

nother season of OUAA golf came to a close on Tuesday October 3rd, and the Waterloo Warriors finished the year strongly, taking away another team medal and several individual awards. The final tournament before the OUAA Championship took place on Saturday, September 30 at Forest City National Golf Club in London. The Warriors were among the seven teams who had elected to attend this tournament at the home course of the Westem Mustangs. Led by 4th year Kinesiology student, Rob Bladon, the Warriors played to a solid second place showing, just four strokes behind the Mustangs. In OUAA golf, five players from each team play the course, but only the four lowest scores are used to calculate the team’s score. On this day, Bladon who is in his second year with the Warriors, posted the low individual score with a 3 over par 75, which was three shots better than the next competitor. Steady rounds were also played by 2ndyearEconomics student, Darren Zink, and 3rd year History student, Chuck Renner, both rookies, who posted matching scores of 81. The team then travelled to Windsor for the OUAA Championships at Pointe West Golf Club in Amherstburg. There were 12 teams in attendance at this event, which was being hosted by the Windsor Lancers. The championship event is a similar format to the previous tournaments, except that it is a two day event. After a practice round on Sunday in which the Warriors played the 6800 yard links style course in a strong wind, there was a general feeling that it would take very precise shotmaking to navigate the course successfully. Warriors coach, Doug Painter, and assistant coach, CPGA touring professional Dave Wettlaufer advised the players not to be discouraged if their scores were higher than they were accustomed to, and to remain focused for the entire round. Monday dawned clear and sunny, with less wind than the previous, making a pleasant surprise to a11the competitors. Even with less wind, the 99 bunkers and ample fescue

Tailback Jarrett Smith 3 emotional
cc19m not by Kimberly Imptit staff
n a sport in which players are driven by emotion and image is everything, Jarrett Smith is king. The stylish tailback of the University of Waterloo Warriors is enjoying one of his most of his productive seasons since joining the team three years ago. An outstanding player in high school, Waterloo’s coaching staff recruited Jarrett in hopes he would become a star. Two seasons later Jarrett is not only shining, he is dominqt ing . “He brings a smile to my face,” says Waterloo’s Defensive Coordinator Chris Triantifolo, who recruited Jarrett from Hamilton’s Barton High School. In his first full season as a starter, Jarrett has injected new life into the Warriors squad. It was his emotional style of play that helped pump the team up in its first win of the season, a come from behind victory over Toronto. Against McMaster, his 145 yard effort put the game out of reach and this past weekend, Jarrett’s plunge into the endzone with four minutes was the deciding factor in the game. “I get so emotional when I’m in the games,” explains the talented tailback. “In that one game against Toronto, I was almost in tears because I was so pumped. All my emotions were going crazy. I love after a big run or a touchdown just freaking out.” Like Shannon Sharpe of the Denver Bronco’s, Jarrett does a big muscle flex after he scores to let out all the emotions that have built up

losing two straight games to Western and Windsor, but has anyone noticed how fantastic the Warriors have played as of late? Well, if you haven’t, you should! This year’s football squad is one of the most exciting the program has had in years. And, after three straight wins over Toronto, McMaster and Guelph, the Warriors are looking forward to their match-up with the number one ranked team in the country. They face off against their arch-rivals, the Laurier Golden Hawks, at University Stadium tomorrow. Don’t think Laurier will walk all over the Warriors this season because they are 5-O. Like always, the annual battle of Waterloo is going to be one of the most intense games of the season. Both teams are young and hungry to prove themselves. After the graduation of many key players from both squads, many were predicting rebuilding years for both the Hawks and Warriors. Instead,
inside of him. Some may call him a show-boat, but that’s just Jarrett’s style. “I’m not much of a showboat,” admits Jarrett with a sly smile. “But, I like to. Sometimes, I’ll wear my Nike headband. Just little things that might show off a bit. But, I think that’s just part of the game. It adds a little life to it.” And, what’s wrong with a little bit of style when you go out there and get the job done week after week? In the Warriors’five games this season, Jarrett has rushed for close to 500 yards. In his Iast three games he has gained no less than 100 yards and snagged three touchdowns. Jarrett is also among the top ten in rushing in the country and broke into the Warriors All-Time rushing yardage list with his 124 yard performance against Guelph. “I always want to get the ball,” says Jarrett who is averaging almost 15 carries a game. “I always think I can break it. I al ways think I’m going to do something because that’s the way I feel. I know I can break a big play.” And, he usually does. With Jarrett at tailback and fullback Mike Malott, the Warriors have one of the strongest backfields in the CIAU. However, it takes more than just running the ball well to be successful. To Jarrett Smith that second part is having fun. “I’m kind of laid back during the week in practise. I like to have a good time. I’m not one of those guys who is really serious and uptight. I like to have fun during practise because that’s the whole
looking Laurier is leading the nation at S-O. The Warriors,however, have had a tougher battle. Under-rated all year by the media in this Hawkloving city, Waterloo has quietly knocked off its competition week after week. In their first win of the season, the Warriors defeated the previous number two ranked team in the country, the Varsity Blues. Their next win came at the expense of another top ten team, the McMaster Marauders. This week, they would like nothing better than to beat the number one ranked team in the CIAU. And no, I’m not dreaming. This game is going to be very close. Waterloo is an exciting team with a lot of talent. They probably have the best opportunity to stop the Hawks of anyone in the OUAA. Unlike most teams, the Warriors come right at you. Physically they are one of the toughest teams in the CIAU. They pull no punches, just come out strong and play that way the entire game. Waterloo also has the talent on defense to stop Laurier’s potent passing attack. Led by rover Tony Garland

intimidation. Aside from his dominating 5’ Ill’, 200 lbs. frame are his earrings, buzz cut, arm band tattoo and the recently developed tradition of dying his hair. “The intimidation factor is such a good deterrent to other players as well as a motivator to your
but.2 teammates and yourself. “I like to look tough. I like to look intimidating on the field. With the tatoos and the earrings and stuff.” However, don’t make the mistake of thinking Jarrett is all wrapped up in himself. He is a team player and in ihaving fun and enjoying himself, he is helping the team accomplish its goal of winning. “Its a bjig year for a lot of people.” notes Jarrett on why winning this season is so important for the Warriors. “Like the Shonikers and Adrian where it is their last year. Even though I’m coming back for two more years, I realize that’s it’s really important to them so it’s really important to me as well.” The Warriors will have two more years of Jarrett Smith dominating their backfield. He has proven himself to be a key member of this team and would like his hard work to be remembered when the day comes th.at he is no longer a Warrior. “I just want them to remember that I’m a dlamn good football player,” replied Jarrett when asked if there was one thing he wanted people to takefrom this article. “I want Ipeople to remember when they think back: ‘Ya, Jarrett was awesome.’ I want them to remember me as part of a Vanier team. I want to be remembered for a big contribution to winning that.” If the rest of the season goes the same way it has for Jarrett, he’ll get his wish and so will the Warriors. Come cheer on Jarrett and the rest of the Warriors as they face Laurier at 2 pm. tomorrow.
to pull off upset Saturdav and safety Shawn Dyson, the Warriors have snagged six interceptions in the past two weeks. Both Garland and Dyson collected their second of the season against Guelph this past weekend. Alongside Dyson and Garland are outstanding coverage corners Kirk Witter and Tory Locker. Witter, in his fifth year, wants nothing more than a championship season. His dominating play this season has shown how far he will go to reach that goal. Locker was put in a difficult position this season as he stepped in to CIAU’s defensive player of the year, Cory Delaney’s spot. However, Locker has proven he is capable of the task. Safety Trevor Trodd also snagged his first interception of the season Saturday. Offensively,the Warriors look to be even stronger than last season. With full back Mike Malott and tailback Jarrett Smith in the backfield, Waterloo has one of the best one-two punch combinations in the country. Malott is among the leaders in rushing this season, averaging over 100 yards a game. He is number two on Waterloo’s All-time rush-
ing list and scored his fourth touchdown of the season against Guelph. In his last season with the Warriors, Malott seems to be on a mission to show that he is the best there is. In his first full season as a starter, Jarrett Smith is one of the most exciting players to watch. In Waterloo’s three wins this season, Smith has had no less than 100 yards. Smith was last week’s OUAA player of the week and broke into the Warriors All-time rushing list with his 124 yard performance on Saturday. There is little doubt in anyone’s mind that Jarrett is the star of the future. He is dominating this season alongside Malott, imagine what he’ll do next season. Don’t count out the Warriors receiving core either. With Captain Adrian Thome, Colin Alie, Rick Shea, and Chris Amey, Waterloo always has that deep threat capability. Thome is the go to guy whenever the Warriors need a big play. The quarterbacking combination of Kevin Danschinko and Ryan Wilkinson, although unusual, seems to be working for Waterloo. Both quarterbacks excel at different aspects of the game.
Danschinko is. excellent at running the option and making the reads while Wilkinson is a great passer and can give the Warriors more of a passing attack. However., don’t make the mistake of thinking Danschinko is not able to run the Warriors offense. Although this is his first season as a starter, Danschinko has the experience it takes to make the option work. He has shown he can make things happen this season. If he doesn’t make the right decisions Malott and Smith don’t get the ball. Wilkinson is going to be a star, there’s no doubt about that. But, its not his time to shine yet. This year is Danschinko’s time to be the star. He has made some mistakes this season, but has the confindence to continue and win. Saturday’s battle of Waterloo will feature the Warriors’incredible ground attack against the Hawks’ potent air attack. If you were planning on catching one game this year, don’t miss this one. There is a new attitude on the Warriors squad this season. An attitude that thrives on winning. Watch for the Warriors to pull off the upset in a thriller.

ey you tennis buffs, don’t forget that Campus Ret is putting on a Tennis Tournament on Saturdays, October 22, and 29! The entry deadline is on Monday, October 16 at I:00 pm in the PAC Reception office, Room 2039. That’s only three days away so get moving! SLO-PITCH TOURNEY NEWS: Michelle Robinson, S tu dent Coordinator of Tournaments f Campus Recreation is excited about the SIOrecent pitch tourney sponsored by UW and CocaCola. She WI-( the following: On September 30 and October 1, almost two hundred slo-pitch players invaded the North Campus diamonds for a great adventure. A total of seventeen teams participated in the two day event. They were divided into two divisions: competitive and mixed. The competitive divisidn provided spectators with great quality of play and drama. The Little Fonzies put their reputation on the line (they had not lost in five years).
The competition was tough and the Little Fonzies had to go into extra innings against the Hammer Sharks to advance to the Finals, where they were pitted against Renison. When the dust cleared, the Little Fonzies won with a score of 9 to 3. The mixed division had its share of drama and competitive spirit. Science Reaction won the Mixed League Championships with a score of 9 to 6 over The Other Team, thanks to the power-house hitting of Kristen Phillips. She won the homerun hitting contest held on Saturday. The men’s winner was Percy Hsieh from The Dirtiest Dozen. Both winners went home with CocaCola t-shirts. Other shirts I were proxvided and were x given away randomly to players throughout the tourney. As tournament coordinator, 1 would like to thank the conveyor, Jason Piper, who did a fantastic job. I would also like to thank the umpires, our sponsor, CocaCola, and all the players and team captains. The tourney was a success because of your participation!
Some sickly looking Warriors -- from left to right... #66 John Shoniker, #M Adrian Thorne, #67 Justin Shoniker, and #35 Tony Garland -- chow down on some subs in a little pre-game hi-jinks with the Laurier Golden Hawks Wednesday evening. The Warriors fought bravely, but went down to defeat 33 subs to 29. The 4-man teams competed in a 20-minute saw-off, John Shoniker consumed a Warrior-high 9 subs. Upon recovery, the Warriors are expecting to reverse the result on the field Saturday.

Kara is a fifth year Math student in her final year of competition on the Athena swim team. Last Wednesday at UW’s Tri-Meet versus Laurier and Guelph, Kara won both the women’s 200 meter individual medley and 200 meter breaststroke races. Her top finishes helped the Athenas to a 101-82 victory over the Laurier team. Kara is a previous Athlete of the week and has qualified for the CIAU National Championships for the past two consecutive seasons.
yards and three picks. Regular starter Ted Dyer, who entered the game in the second half, threw the fourth Guelph interception, and completed 5 of his 9 passes for 41 yards. Despite the graduation of the most prolific quarterback/receiver tandem in CIAU history, the Golden Hawks are not experiencing the losses associated with a rebuilding year. The 5-O Hawks upset their bitterest rivals, the Western Mustangs, two weeks ago, and claimed the top ranking in the nation as a result. Pivot Kevin McDonald is second in OUAA passing with 1118 yards and 10 touchdowns on 76-of- 130 passing. After playing second fiddle to Stefan Ptaszek last season, Zach Treanor has emerged as an elite OUAA receiver with 35 1 yards and four TDs on 17 catches.
CIAU top-ten craziness: Two weeks ago, the Warriors crushed the ninth-ranked team in the nation, the
Marauders. Before that, they beat Toronto when the Blues were nationally ranked. The response of the CIAU coaches’ poll was to drop Mac out of the top ten, but not replace it with UW. Fine. McMaster was in a free fall anyway, and should not have been ranked in the fust place, with or wiihout their fluky 2-O start. Then, last weekend, Waterloo barely beat a winless Guelph squad, and all of a sudden UW comes in at no. 9 Now, any national recognition for Waterloo’s fine football program is not to be discounted or unappreciated, and there is some logic to UW being ranked, considering that they have beaten two nationally ranked teams this year, Toronto and Mac. But surely if the Warriors weren’t good enough to be in the top ten a week ago, then they sure aren’t now. The Warriors will get their chance tomorrow to prove whether or not they deserve such high praise. My prediction? UW will have to win to stay on the top ten. Even losing by one point will send them plummeting in the esteemed opinion of the nation’s coaches.

JustOneThought, JustOneOcean Spiritualized w/Polara Opera House, Turunto Saturday October 7th by Greg Imprint
n an ideal world, one should never have expectations for any thing - what happens should just happen, be it good or bad, and that way you won’t be disappointed. expectations for MY Spiritualized’s appearance at the Opera House last week were Big. Huge. Astronomical even. This in turn is just asking for failure, since nothing short of a Spike Island type of event is going to be satisfactory. So for myself this show was a bit of a letdown, but stepping back from this and being objective, it was still easily one of best shows to come through Toronto this year. Spiritualized is a unique band. Right at a time when many shoegazer groups were at their peak and starting to fall, Jason Pierce’s new group of players released Lazer Guided Melodies and showed them all how it was supposed to be done. Basically it was droning guitar music, but with such imagination, such attention to detail, such awe
and reverance to musical progenitors in every note, that it trancended any genre one wanted to shove it into. Many British rock critics today rate it as one of the strongest albums of this decade, though as far as I’m concerned, this year’s Pure Phase, their second long player, is the superior of the two. This was a performance for fans, pure and simple. Before the show, Pierce said that the band had always wanted to do a tour on their own terms, headlining their own show instead of again opening for SOme other band. This Not just time around they could turn up the volume as loud as they wanted it, bring in whatever lighting they saw fit, and best of all charge only $10 admission. Apparently they’re losing thousands with such a low cover charge, but for Spiritualized.the entire exercise is worth it, First up though were the band Polara, and they ended belonging to that file every music fan has labelled *‘Must seek out their stuff
sometime.” Squawling slabs of guitar rock roared forth, with male and female vocal duties swapped between the two guitarists, giving the same sort of sonic overload that one would expect from the headliners, though in a more upbeat manner. Their influences come from both sides of the Atlantic, every big guitar band from Sonic Youth to My Bloody Valentine, and even a touch of Spiritualized themselves.
This Minneapolis band (containing Ed Ackerson, producer and onetime member of Antenna) has a self-titled album out now -it will be worth hunting down. Decidedly though, the main attraction here was Spiritualized, and they didn’t so much play a show as sculpt one. The music ebbed and flowed through slower and fast tempos, but the audience literally could do nothing but stand there and soak it all in. Meantime the lights alternately swirled and flashed in the audience and on a backdrop with the P lyre Phase logo displayed. Sometimes you stared at the lights and lost yourself, other times you closed your eyes and just concentrated on the endorphins firing in your brain from the sound. Let it Flow indeed! The only criticism to be made, and it’s rather trifling, is that it was almost too exclusionary. I own both albums plus the Medicabon EP, and still I only knew half of the
set. There was a host of tracks “Good Times,” “Let It Flow,” “Run,” and “‘Angel Sigh” to name a few - that I would love to have heard. Inste,ad new and unreleased songs were debuted, and Spaceman 3 tracks like: “Revolution” were a thrill to those who remember Jason’s earlier soundscape incarnation. Even without the recognition factor though, the songs simply soared, an entirely intoxicating adventure into inner space. Songs burbled to the surface of consciousness. “Shine A Light” built slowly to a finale of clawing guitar fragments. “Medication” stopped and started without seeming to, numbing the senses. “Lay Back in the Sun” brought to mind pictures of doing this onsome planet in a far off galaxy. Staring at a yellow sky. On drugs. Ninety minutes on, and “These Blues” proved the show closer, a wicked sonic wall punctuated by a harmonica tom from the depth of blues. It went on for some time, building and crashing with the lights, until the audience: (and the band, perhaps) could stand no more. The faithful then staggered out, ears muffled., whispering in awe of the event they had-witnessed.
LETTHEMADNESS BEGIN m= ONCE n
Ozzy Osbourne The Wurehouse, Turmto Tuesday, October 10 by AIain M. Gaudrault special to Imprint zzy Osbourne, former frontman for the oncemighty Black Sabbath, is showing the world in his own inimitable way that, as he puts it, “retirement sucks.” Ozzy’s previous tour was touted as being his last, the “No More Tours” tour, in support of his then current release No More Tears. Restless and bored, the madman of rock and roll put together a promotional tour in antic ipation of his fo corn ing releasl Ozzn wlsis. Only appear ing in small venu ies and clubs, and playing his most popular mateCal, this is a minitour strictly for the fans. As he has done .. in the past with groups such as Motley Crue, and most notably Metallica, Ozzy has brought along an opening act which he feels has great potential for major success. American death/industrial crossover act Fear Factory were the lucky recipients of this prized slot. Their
45minute set showcased songs off both of their full-length albums although more emphasis on their latest, Demanufacture, was to be expected. Whileenergetic and raw, the performance seemed not quite as focused as it has beenin the past. This is perhaps due to the utter lack of audience feedback to their material, other than the occasional ‘*we want Ozzy” bellows. Ozzy fans have been known to be rather intolerant of opening acts, and the crowd at the Warehouse was no different. Few cheers and little applause were all thethanks Fear Factory received before leaving the stage. Of course, the crowd was eagerly anticipating those four trade-
mark words ushering in another evening of musical mayhem: “Let the madness begin.“Ozzy, ever the comedian, started the show with a video montage of himself spliced into various bits of film, including “Forrest Gump” and music clip
footage of Elvis, The Beatles, and Madonna, among others. This served only to build the crowd’s anticipation which exploded as Ozzy hit the stage, sporting both a hot new guitar player, and a legendary bassist, the ever-enigmatic Geezer Butler, also of Black Sabbath fame. The set list included Ozzy’s greatest hits such as “Crazy Train,” “ Flying High Again,” “Bark at the Moon,” and his most recent hit, “Mama I’m Coming Ho’me.” Featured also were suchBlack Sabbath classics as “Iron Man,” “Sweet Leaf,” and “War Pigs.” In fact, a full third of the show consisted of Sabbath tunes, not surprising since half of the band is comprised of exBlack Sabbath members! While Ozzy may not have the greatest singing voice, he sure knows how to pen a memorable hook, and goad his audience into a manic frenzy. And the latter he did at theWarenouse. The energy level was high from beginning to end, letting up momentarily for ballads such as “Goodbye to Romance” and “Mama I’m Coming Home.” Ozzy himself seemed to be having a damn good time, and looked in much better
to his diet,
physical condition than he did in the mid- 1980s. The man is lean, mean, and ready to assault fans with yet another slab of goodies with the upcoming Oumnsis. Should he come through the

efore I start picking it apart, I want to say that this filmis cool. It is gritty, crunchy, fast-paced and is best watched loud. Set in the near future, it combines modern issues with slightly betterthan-today’s technology to come up with probably the best cyberpunk flick since Bladerunner. That said, cyberpunk may be too strong a word. The world (well, turn-of-the-century Los Angeles) isn’t really much different from what it is today. Computers don’t play any sort of role at all, a stark contrast to most cyberpunk in which advanced computer technology is usually prominent. Also, there are no body-modifications, no soupedup bodyguards with nerve-splicing or muscle grafts. Nothing cool like that. It’s just like today, except a little more burnt out. Set in the final two days of this century, Strange Days is basically just another murder mystery. The twist is something called SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Inter-

ference Device), technology that can record and playback everything a person feels, smells, tastes, etc. Everything. You want to try a girl? Two girls? No problem. How about being a girl? See how it feels the other way round? No problem. Lenny Nero will have it. Played by Ralph Fiennes (Amon Goeth from Schindler’s List), Lenny Nero is an ex-cop who currently deals in Playback. After that, it gets complicated. The plot is very convoluted, involving Nero’s best male friend (Tom Sizemore), best female friend (Angela Bassett), ex-girlfriend (Juliette Lewis), ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend, and a bunch of other people. However, what I can say is that a hooker Nero knows gets iced, someone tapes it (the info is recorded on small CD’s in 30 minute chunks) and discreetly gets a copy to Nero. At the same time, a prominent Black activist is killed, and no one knows by whom. Of course, this is where the fact that it is the end of the millennium comes ‘in. The streets are packed. People are running, screaming, robbing and being robbed. Cars are burning in the streets, store owners standon guard
o Die For is a funny and entertaining movie, which isn’t sure whether it’s a thriller, a comedy, a soft-porn flick, or a documentary. The story, to put it simply, is about a pouty, psychotic and beautiful brat who ruthlessly uses and abuses men to get what she wants. Woven in with this theme is the ‘media as definer of society’ idea which was so blatant in (I hate to say it) Natural Born Killers. In To Die For, however, the implied statements are much more lighthearted. This is definitely not meant to be a serious movie of any genre. Its best feature is the refreshingly unique and interesting array of characters. Nicole Kidman plays Suzanne Stone, a maybelline mall bunny whose life’s ambition is to be on T.V.

with automatic weapons and, unlike most cyberpunk settings where the cops are non-existent, cops are everywhere. Regular cops, cops in riot gear, the National Guard, equipped with M-16’s, APC’s and Battletanks. And this being L.A., there is just a bit of tension between the general populace and the Man. Of course, the guy who smoked the hooker has some connection to the guy who knows who killed the Black activist who knows what he knows because it was taped on SQUID. I won’t give away the rest. The film is visually solid, and the story, though a bit tricky to follow, is good. The acting is fine, the action is good, and the scene at the end (where they closed off four city blocks in L.A. and got approximately 12 000 extras to show up for free by advertising the event as a concert and gave away prizes including several trips to Hawaii) is incredible. The only real detractors were a couple of attempts to inject humour and romance where none was needed or wanted. Cyberpunk fans, this is not the movie you’ve been waiting for (not that it will suck as badly as Johnny Mnemonic), but if you like a bit of cool technology mixed with some action and urban grit, you’ll like this.

nitely different, idiosyncratic individuals who are not normally found in Hollywood movies. Two disadvantaged teens are a case in point. Their roles provide not only humour, but the opportunity to gain valuable insight into the difficulties faced by poor, socially limited, and intellectually challenged young people. (Sorry about the PC-ism.) Suzanne’s husband, played by Matt Dillon, is the standard nice guy who falls blindly in love with the wrong woman and ends up getting shafted. His sister, a professional skater, is really the most interesting qmber of the family. She’s spunky, feisty, has guts and determination, but is nevertheless down to earth. She’s an attractive person from the inside out, and I found myself looking forward to her moments onscreen. Their parents, too, are a wonderful pair who have more tricks up their sleeves than it would appear at first glance. All in all, this movie is well worth seeing, especially if you’re in the mood for a good laugh, a weird experience, or both.
the spotlight is so strong that she resorts to extemely manipulative and horrific tactics. A dead husband and several ruined lives later... but I’d better not give too much of the plot away. Not that it really matters - the story’s pretty predictable, and the audience is usually one step ahead of the action. As villains go, Kidman’s character is not a very respectable one. She’s so girlish that her tactics elicit neither fear nor admiration. For example, she’s not the gutsy type who can coolly kill someone with an ice pick and still be sexy. Not at all. This Smurfette needs a guy to wield the gun for her. When it comes to weaponry, the best she can come up with is mascara and a smile. What Suzanne can do, though, is provoke laughter. She’s so unreal, like the evil Barbie that seduces Uncle Fester in Addams Family Values.’ In the real world, Matt Groening would make an excellent satire of her - but she’s already a satire. Some of the characters that get spun into Suzanne’s web are defi-

he age of information is upon us. The information superhighway’s been paved up to your front door, your kid sister’s still trying to teach you why Archie isn’t just a cartoon character anymore and what does it all mean? Being Digital is a catch-all phrase meant to cover the implications of networked communications and the ever increasing processing power of computers. The human face of the revolution is this book’s principal concern. How these developments will affect the way we lead our lives, earn our incomes and interact with one another (not to mention our computers) should be of interest to everyone. Being Digitaldoesn’t read like a novel, but rather like a collection of fuzzy-around-the-edges visions coupled with some technical ponderings. This shouldn’t be surprising as most of Negroponte’s material comes from the column he writes for Wired magazine and has massaged for the general public. The result keeps the flavour of his monthly email message offering up a medley of fact, speculation and half formed opinion. When reading a book that claims to map the future it is only natural to question the credentials of the author. Nicholas Negroponte is Founding Director of the MIT Media Lab (since 1483), an institution dedicated to the study of new technology and its influence on culture and the ways we communicate. Furthermore, he is Professor of Media Techno!ogy at MIT and has conducted research and
Friday, October 13, 1995
overseen development of media technology for about twenty years; long before most people had even heard of the Internet or virtual reality. Perhaps this, and the fact that he has worked closely with so many key figures in the fields of computing, communications and entertainment is sufficient testament to the credibility of his views. So... what are his views? Where does being digital take us and our lives? In what is nearing the status of truism, he predicts all communications carriers, ie. satellites, television, radio, telephone, cable et al. will converge into the business of transporting bits. The common denominator is information and the advantage will be to those who can provide quality content. Negroponte reasons that in the future, former broadcast medialike television will be transfered over a fiberoptic network while personal voice communications requiring little bandwidth, yet increasingly greater allowance for user mobility, will be allocated to the ether. This ends happily with you being able to receive calls anywhere, anytime as well as to move an entire mountain of data into your own living room. “But I don’t want people calling me all the time,” you say, or perhaps you ask yourself, “What ever would I do with so much information? “ Never fear, it is here that we realize that we are in the hands of a master, or at least someone who has spent a lot of time thinking about just these very questions. In the rest of the book Negroponte explains humane solutions to our society’s information overload, and answers a lot of questions that you probably wouldn’t even have thought of asking. By
the end he has not only demonstrated how much more productive (not happy) you will be, but near proclaimed the coming of a digital Renaissance. Software agents, interactive multimedia and a lot of conversations with your computer seem to be on the horizon and we have nobody to blame but ourselves should these new tools not lead to more fulfiiing lives. People’s daily use of media will involve ‘users pulling the information they desire through communication channels instead of producers pushing a product they hope has appeal towards potential consumers. This will result in the personalization of culture and entertainment. That being the case, there is no excuse if we end up with little better than, well, television. If new media and communications technology realIy has you wondering where it’staking us, you may just want to pick this book up. There are probably few people better qualified to guess than Professor Negroponte.

magine an island where dinosaurs have been cloned from fossilized DNA. Imagine that something terrible goes wrong and the animals rampage, killing the scientists who’ve travelled to the island to study these creatures. Imagine that gets turned into a movie which makes hundreds of millions of dollars. Imagine a sequel. Welcome to The LustWofld. The tist World, the latest novel by the world’s hottest writer, Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, ER, Disclosure), is a continuation of the Jurussic Pm-k story, taking up six years after the destruction of the island (The story in the novel was somewhat different than the movie one; the island was nuked at the end!). The story begins with a team of scientists including Ian Malcolm, a survivor of Jurassic Park, journeying to the secret is-
land used to breed dinosaurs for Jurassic Park. While there, the dinosaurs run amok, but fortunately, the scientists are able to escape just in time. Ok, I will concede that the plot of The LOG WurZd sounds vaguely similar (read: carbon copy) to Jwassic Park. I will also concede that the characters follow the basic templates established in Jurussic Park. However, it isn’t exactly the same story. This one is actually better. The greatest point to be made about The Lost World is that it’s a fun read. As predictable as the story may be, it’s still quite enjoyable to try to figure who will be dino-chow and who will survive. Michael Crichton has a talent for writing stories that draw you in and keep you riveted until the very last page. Beyond the action elements of the story, however, there exists an acCrichton, a tual science lesson. graduate of Harvard Medical School and holder of several degrees, has an incredible scientific mind, and he lets it show in most of his fiction works. The bulk of both Jurassic Park and The Lost World is Crichton’s complex theories on
dinosaurs, science and evolution itself. He dares to challenge conventional thinking, basing his ideas on theories and facts, but at the same time rnaking it easy for the reader to understand. Since most readers likely aren’t familiar with the intricacies of genetic engineering and complexity theory, it’s a godsend tha.t Crichton walks you through it carefully. One word of caution I must extend is that if this book interests you, get a copy of Jurassic Park first, and rea.d it. The events of the movie were close to, but not the same as the original novel. As is the standard, the book was much better. Once you’ve read Jwassic Park, The Lost World will be a far more enjoyable read, since you’ll actually understand most of the story behind it. It will also be good preparation for the movie version, which
will be released
theatre for the summer of 1997. At first., The Lost Wurid seems as though it was written purely to cash in on the phenomenal success of Jurassic Park, but once you get into it, that thought disappears as fast as the bull in the raptor pen.

Sabbath, Sabbath’s .
Sabbath Theater returns to familiar Roth material, it doesn’t do so nostalgically. Rather, the book asks some hard questions of Roth’s old icons: What happens when Portnoy is friendless and old, and still complaining? What if Maureen Tarnopol maybe wasn’t such a crazy shrew after all, but just a woman with needs as normal as anyone’s? But Sabbath himself does whatever he can to avoid the hard questions. Six months after Drenka’s death, he leaves his wife Rosanna and travels to New York City to attend an old friend’s funeral. The novel thus alternates between Sabbath’s reminiscences - of his childhood, his two wives, and his many affairs - and his increasingly depraved present-day behavior, marked by an increasing obsession with suicide. With sex so central to the protagonist’s identity, Sabbath’s Theater is a filthy, filthy book the encyclopedic cataloguing of Sabbath’s perversions (past and present) makes the once-controversial Portmy’s Comp~&xt read like a kindergarten primer. It’s also hilarious, though, as Sabbath finds himself embroiled in a number of farcical predicaments, most of them resulting from his chronic autoeroticism. When Roth offers a complete transcription of Sabbath’s phone sex with a student bath’s
McClelland & Stewart 452 pages, $29.99 by Derek Weiler special to Imprint $3 Theater, the first Philip Roth book in which the author is not a character since 1987’s The Counterlife, is simultaneously fresh and familiar. It’s both a step away from Roth’s recentfaux autobiographical impulses and also a return to his recurring fictional models: grumpy, sex-obsessed Jewish men. As a humorist, Roth is at his peak here, as the narrative vibrates with wicked ribaldry and several laugh-out-loud scenes; beneath the salacious smirking, though, there is also a brooding darkness that makes Sabbath’s Theuter as powerful as it is blackly funny. The book’s anti hero is Mickey Sabbath, an arthritic ex-puppeteer of sixty-four who’s still haunted by the WWII death of his idolized older brother. Unemployed and disgraced after a small-town sex scandal, the aging Sabbath is content to live on his alcoholic wife’s paycheck and pursue his various extra-marital liasons. But when Drenka, a local innkeeper’s wife with whom Sabbath has enjoyed a long-standing affair (indeed, in her promiscuity abbath
and sexual ravenousness, Drenka’s the closest thing to a kindred spirit Sabbath has), contracts ovarian cancer and dies, the bubble bursts.
Most of Roth’s tried-and-true motifs are back in full force here: sexual appetite, neurosis, death’s shattering of the family. But if&b-

(the escapade that costs him his job as a college lecturer), it seems gratuitous at firstbut when the reader remembers that a feminist group has obtained a tape of the conversation and installed it on a toll-free telephone line so that any and all may hear the teacher “harassing” the student, every sleazy, titillating word becomes a side-splitter. In any case, Sabbath is surely an unpleasant character, but he’s also usually an interesting one. As ever-present and exhaustive as Sabbath’s masturbatory follies is his immense grief - even fifty years later - over the death of his older brother, killed in the Pacific fighting in the last stages of WWlI. Thus, when Sabbath unleashes a stream of anti-Japanese invective at one point, Roth communicates not only thecharacter’s repugnance, but also his crippling heartbreak. Admittedly, this testing of the reader’s sympathy can be straining, and one episode - a flashback recounting Sabbath’s visit to his drying-out wifealmost breaks the novel’s back with Sabbath’s loutish, nigh-unforgiveable behavior. But even the most distasteful episodes are accompanied by the spectre of loss and suicide, an ambivalent, fearful grasping toward death, an admission of the futility of life. Sf2bbafh +S Theater isn’t pretty, but it is undeniably powerful.

first came across Di Brandt in her collection questions i sked my mother. She is sharp and honest, and has won a number of awards for those qualities. Brandt was nominated for the Governor General’s Award for that collection, and her others, Agnes in the sky, and motheqnot mother, have been equally well received. In Jerusalem, beloved, Brandt travels to Jerusalem to visit a friend. While there she experiences the tyranny of the Intifada of occupied Palestine. Understandably, this trip strikes her - but what we get from her experience is not’s collection of poetry about Jerusalem, as much as it is about the things we hold dear, made clear to Brandt in a setting of extreme distress. Brandt covers a lot of territory, moving from Jerusalem to Winnipeg, from strangers to friends and children. She does so with alacrity and creativity. The first section of poems is called “Jerusalem, beloved,” and these poems speak about the horrors of the occupalion. A woman’s woman always, Brandt looks through the women to see what is happening, writing about “these eyes,the long long sonow in them, these women’s eyes, looking at me.” The women are dressed in black
and crying for their soldier sons, and Brandt sees this in contrast with “the candles flickering against the darkening sea, the hills h!tre black across the sea of Galilee.” Brandt’s style is long and rambling, pure outpouring of emotion. Here it works well, because it gives us a sense of the absolute chaos she is
running across in the streets, in a land fabled for peace and harmony. The second section is entitled “blue light, falling all around us.” Some of these poems move back to Canada, and in a strange change of direction, deal with falling in love. The same style is present, and although the easy flow of words begins to be tiring, it allows the emotions to come through without mak-
ing us search through the layers. The emotions here are beautiful, heart-wrenching, and non-gender specific. The section does what many poets aim for - the personal becomes universal. Really, the change in direction is not that different, because all forms of intense love involve some kind of mourning. Witness: “yesterday your absence was a hole inside me, today it’s a stone.” One very experimental piece called “translating the language of my foreign belly” takes work, since parts of it are not in any recognizabie language; but the statement Brandt makes is surprisingly simple, if not immediately accessible. The final grouping of poems is called “those of us who have daughters.” Traditionally, feminists speakof looking back through our mothers. Brandt takes a different tack, looking forward through her daughters and those of her friends. The poems are focused specifically on other people, and this quality makes the poems difficult to access. They are still wonderful, more lyrical than the others, and strangely most of them have nothing whatsoever to do with Jerusalem. By the time we come to the final poem, though, Brandt has come back to the ancient city, and tied many of the themes of her other poems together with the Jerusalem journey: “this land that is hers...groaning to be delivered, of its love chilLsudden tenderness in the fields of war, she holds it to her bosom, hungrily.” We, along with Brand& our mothers, and our daughters, have come a long way.

The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of MR. PUNCH by Neil Gaiman and Dave Mc Kean DC/Vertigo 90 pages, $20.95 by Pat Spacek special to Imprint rying to convince the uninitiated of the worth of what is either dismissively called the comic book, or pretentiously called the graphic novel, is a losing proposition. People who have read the Sandman orL.oveandRockets know that the medium is an exciting and viable one. People who think that comics stopped evolving when they stopped reading them just look at you funny and ask “Aren’t you a little old to be reading those?’ By reviewing Mr. Punch, the latest collaboration of British cult favorites Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean, I risk preaching to the converted and not convincing the ignorant. That is a real shame, since this book’s disturbing beauty and narrative force make it definateiy worth reading. To criminally trivialize the basic plot of Mr. Punch, the story revolves around a nameless narrator vainly trying to understand the dark, confused adult-dominated world of his childhood. The images that lurk within and around his memories are those of a Punch and Judy play, a puppetshow that seems like good fun, but is actually an orgy of violence and confusion. The Punch puppet repr nts some horrible force or kno s&l ge that the narrator is first tempted to understand, and then later to become - the dark side of adulthood, the ultimate experience attacking innocence. The complexity of bo,th Gaiman’s story and McKean’s art make Mr. Punch an exploration of childhood, memory, perception, experience, knowledge and reality. It is a narrative that questions the validity of narrative, a story about the unreliability of stories because of their basis in the incomprehensi-

ble and twisted actions of others. The narrator exists in a world of grown-ups whose motives and actions are only sometimes clear (and only then through their insanity, desperation, and violence). His later adult attempts to come to terms with, and understand, the people that dominted his youth are frustrated because his memories are limited by his childhood perceptions (as expressed by Dave McKean’s gorgeous artwork, incorporating models, photography, and painting). Nothing the adults do makes sense, and the only solidarity in the narrator’s experience is Punch, whose frightening vilence mirrors and distills everything else. Ultimately, even this tangibility becomes slippery, with characters from the play popping up in the narrator’s dreams, in the actions of those around him, and even seemingly out of thin air. Through it all, the puppet show is repeatedy referred to as having something to teach the narrator. though what exactly that lesson involves is never clear. Sometimes, it seems that Punch embodies the triumph of the bully, yet there are moments where he appears to be a victim. Often, the puppet show appears to be about the inability of adults to relate to each other, though it sometimes :+eems to be glorifying irreverent anarchy. Gaiman offers no pat answers, and the metaphor’s inability to explain childhood’s meaning becomes the meaning. Limited in his detective work to his memories of people long-dead, the narrator observes “The path of memory is neither straight nor safe, and we travel down it at our own risk.” We can no more escape the past than we can understand it. Mr. Punch is an immensely complicated and satisfying work. More importantly, it is a story that can easily be I.old through the comic book medium, and if it doesn’t go a long way towards legitimizing graphic storytelling in the eyes of the unwashed, then nothing ever will. I highly recommend that you read it. Especially if you don’t know what you’re .in for.

With Courtney Love’s ubiquitous pub1 ic persona, it’s hard to just review this release on the basis of the music. Instead you ponder other questions; was this stopgap cash grab release Virgin or the band’s idea? Or is there to satisfy Hole fans who were, urn, asking for it? OR...it could be some sort of statement in relation to the cover. Tellingly, the song “Ask For It” from Live Through This dosen’t actually appear on this release, and furthermore Courtney herself is credited with the “cover concept” in the liner notes. So...what’s up. 3 Could these be Dave Gahan’s wrists, and he asked for it by making such shitty music? A veiled statement about Courtney’s state of mind, and the sad reality that she asked for it? A not-so-subliminal message to kids everywhere to go out and ask for prosthetic scars to be glued to their arms? The answer? Well, probably none of these, but instead she probably came up with it just so stupid hacks like myself would write paragraphs like the ones above. Lord
knows she loves the attention...I guess we’re both pathetic. ,Anyhow, if we can tear our eyes away from the media whore she’s become in the past eighteen months, we’d see an entertaining though hardly essential collection of odds and sods. Think of this as Hole’s Peel sessions, as four of the six tracks that appear were recorded on John’s celebrated program way back in November of ‘91, Of those, three are Hole originals, with an acoustic version of “Doll Parts” the best of the bunch, and the fourth a medley of “Fotming” by the Germs (Kurt was a fan, you see) and Beat Happening’s “Hot Chocolate Boy.” The other two tracks are also covers, including a live version of VU’s “Pale Blue Eyes” that sounds like a bad bootleg (she’s a punk rocker, that Courtney) and the only studio track “Over the Edge” as penned by The Wipers. Curiously, all of the tracks stem back at least three and a half years, capturing a Courtney Love and Hole as yet unfettered by the media attention that was to come. Is this a harkening back to days of obscurity, after asking for fame? Or...argh! I’ll shut up now. This may tide ferverant Courtney fans over, the ones that were actually crying at the sight of her at Lollapalooza (FACT!) but otherwise it’s a curio that others can do without. For fans only.

Although they outright admit to the cheesiness of a live album, their motivation are the seven crappy bootlegs, that they know of, bloating around the world that other people are making money from. So taking their favourite songs from their six previous albums, booking a club in L-A., and renting a mobile studio, NOFX have produced a great live album that captures their hilarious live experience. NOFX have made a career of poking fun in all the right places, and their music combined with their live performance is somewhat comperable to watching a Cheech & Chong movie. From the back and forth crowd banter to the ridiculing of an audience member that had to be taken to the hospital
during their performance - supposedly he had warts on his genitals - NOFX really capture the spirit and humour of a live show. NOFX have always been cynical of the major labels and are very much a part of the D.I.Y. spirit, that can be attested to in that they use their own label to put this album out. Even doing things on their own, with the help of Epitaph, their full-time indie-punk label, NOFX have proven that success can be achieved without a major label padding their wallets with empty promises. Look at Rancid, Pennywise, andofcourseOffspring as excellent examples of bands that aren’t looking for major label support, and still doing very well. What really makes this album a great live album is that it is totally uncompromising in that they don’t follow the “How to record a live album” handbook. They do requests and record their songs as is, mistakes and all. This is what you can really appreciate about the DoIt-Yourself aspect of NOFX as they
won’t bend over for conventionality, playing music as topical as masterbation to calling for the mass termination of all the white men. All the while playing music to get their audience into a furious frenzy of energy and sweat. This package doubles somewhat as a greatest hits album kicking off with “Linoleum,” from last year’s Punk irt Drublic, and continuing with “Moron Brothers,” “Punk Guy, ” “Beer Bong,” “Six Pack Girls” and “The Brews,” all notables on this album. NOFX have created a sound unlike other punks on the block with really catchy tunes that are hilarious, and listenable for those that wouldn’t consider themselves aurally capable of listening to punk music. If NOFX
place alongside more popular punk bands by now, I Heard They Suck Live definitely puts them over the top. Contrary to the suggestion the title of their album implies, my curiosity has greatly been strengthened in seeing these guys live.
by Ohad Lederer speciti to Imprint First things first, let’s categorize the music, because that seems to be the thing to do when you review an album, and heck, i’ll even phrase as a question, making this review interactive and all that. Do you listen to awesomely powerful guitar rock, or even jangle pop guitar rock? What about synth based industrial with that beat that just makes you dance? Sweet, intoxicating female singers? Well, a yes to any of the above, and, well, Friends of Dean Martinez just aren’t what you’re looking for. The only comparison I can think of is to the song that is played during the opening credits of Pulp Fiction. Now, take that song’s tempo, cut it in half, and then half again, and
just about there. Reviewer’s Interlude: listening to this disc at home, my dad walks into the room and says what are you listening to? I say, you tell me. He says: if there were two guys left in a Texas bar at three in the morning sitting and drinking, and the band had a contract to play until four in the morning, this is the music they would play. I said close, they’re from Arizona. And that about sums it up. The Friends are composed of four regulars and a couple of guests here and The album is thirteen there. instrumentals’ and it’s verrrry relaxing’ vet-m-y mellow. Lots of steel guitar, lots of strings and some handy, jazz-style drumming. It’s lounge music: sad, slow and bluesy. In terms of sad bluesy music, it’s good stuff, but if you don’t have the patience for that kind of thing, this isn’t an album for you. Of note is the record label that the Friends are signed to: Sub Pop. Though from the land of Nirvana and Eric’s Trip, I guess you should never label any label by its music.

IMPRINT, - I’m a true hop head. But I will tell you that this album holds its own in a realm of half-steppin’ perpetrators striving for rep. Bloated with phat beats, dope lyrics, and a solid dose of bass, it emits an aura of strength that deserves mtich respect. Respect is a word that must be used when discussing the lyrical content of some of the tracks on the record. Laced with political wisdom and consciousness, Super Cat comes correct. “Warning” and “South Central” stand and deliver, while in his most intelligent track, “Every Nagger Is A Star,” he sets the record straight for all those ig-
For those who like to chill without the seriousness, vibes like “GirlsTown” and “Turn” hit the spot. Every track serves a purpose on this record, and as a whole, it’s a tight package. If you think you don’t like reggae, don’t be afraid to venture into this sphere. If you’re down with it, let it move you. Super Cat is swift and smooth, and he knows the time. l?repare for some enlightenment, and remember: "If There Is No Struggle, There 1s No Progress” (Frederick Douglass, August 1857)
If you think you already have too much knowledge, too bad, you lose. Here’s a little lash from his lyrical whip: “Well h every nagger is an african and also a star/And we know where we coming from and know who we are/ Teeth 1 white like a snow, skin 1 black like a tar/ And anytime dem ser show we a st;u hear me Afrir oonu better cut out the war/ United we stand and divided we
mer Ken Jensen, who died during the making of the album. Much of the political content on The Black @Otis of the generalized lip service type: too many guns, too much consumerism, not enough understanding. D.O.A. do attack some interesting subjects, however. “You’re Paying for Your Body Now” talks about, literally, the cost of living, “Je Declare” rails against customs officers, and “Marijuana Motherfucker” is about... figure it out yourself. A trio of songs near the end of the album are entitled, collectively, “The Nutwrencher Suite.” A brief cover of the traditional song “Bound For Glory” takes an anti-fundamentalist tone: “They don’t want you to think - they just want God in school.,. alleluia, brothers and sisters!” Quite inexplicably, this segues
into the ninety-second “Unchained Melody” (entirely unrelated to the Righteous Brothers tune), a song about cutting people in half, which in turn leads into “Cut Time,” a song about... cutting people in half. As much as it doesn’t make sense, this is the sustained high point of the album, with a lot of chainsaw noises and chiopping sounds. That being said, this is an entertaining album. D.O.A. are veterans on the world punk scene, having influenced current bands as popular as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Green Day. They do have a lot to say, and they want to be heard - “Big Guys Like D.O.A.” makes fun of their f;ms who don’t get the message. Tht? Black Spot is quite listenable, quite intelligent, and enough fun to be worthwhile. Buy it instead of, say, the sequel to Dookie.
the back. It’s an excellent companion toncl7, much as a raincoat is to Showgirls. There are only seven tracks on this EP, and not a dud in the bunch. “morale” is a catchy opener, but the real gem is “even grable.” Fast guitars, great drumming and it’s the type of song you want to sing along to, but it takes too damn long to learn all the words. My early favorite on the disc was the next track, “case in fact,” which is a lot mellower than “even grable” but it also rocks on occasion. Although it doesn’t sound like it, I think “case in fact” is a distant relative to Sloan’s “Take It In,” if only due to the uttering of the song title before a wall of chords is played. The fifth track is the real enigma of the album. Skipping past the (I think) stupid M&M phone machine recording at the beginning, the song kicks in with one fast guitar joined by the other. The guitars scream during the chorus, but the vocals continue right through. The song rocks, and as I listened to it, I
looked around and thought, wow, all this song needs is Julie, and Eric’s Trip it would be. Looking at the back cove:r, I had to laugh at the title: “cleric’s hip.” Coincidence? 1 think not. “sick friend called” is also a standout, if only because it reminds me of “trinity bellwoods” off the ncl7 in that it’s just a great melodic song, something that treble charger is getting good at. Almost forgot the first track: screen zine - “cd rom track (don’t play on audio cd player).” Not much to say other that those people with CD-ROM drives should check it out, because it’s really cool, from the toons to the fanzines to the toilet shot you get on exit. Not to mention the fact that treble charger used their
disc to highlight
thing like thirty-eight other Canadian indie bands, giving each of them a screen, a sound clip and a video clip. It’s awful big of a band that is one step ahead of the rest. It’s good to see thfem putting their CFNY money to good use.

Well, Stanley Burrell (a.k.a. MC Hammer) is back at it again. This much persecuted rapper/ dancer/entertainer has returned, after a brief identity crisis, with his new release V Inside Out. Never really taken seriously anymore, he appears to be on a mission to win back respectability and send a message to those who have turned on him. I know what you’re thinking. It’s MC Hammer, how good can it be, right? It’s actually pretty good. Ok, now that you’ve finished
Friday, October 13, 1995 laughing, I must say that this is a solid effort from Hammer. There are quite a few decent tracks where Hammer gets funky with some serious hip-hop. The album is 8 mix of different styles and provides a good mix of tracks, something Hammer has been known for in the past. At one point you’re listening to some funky hip-hop then next thing you know, Hammer slows everything down and gets on a soul tip. Then he’ll lay down some more upbeat tunes only to get inspirational and start praising God. He even pays a tribute to the late, great Eazy E who died of AIDS earlier this year. The lead-off track, “Luv-NHappiness,” is a solid, upbeat start to this album. The third track, “Anything Goes On The Dance Floor,” is your vintage Hammer dance tune that accomplishes nothvocal style throughout
ing but to get you dancing. Track five, “Keep On,” talks about his struggles with people who have wronged him and advises us that no matter what we have to “keep on.” Track nine, “Nothin’ But Love,” is dedicated to Eazy E as Hammer gives props to him and reminisces about their separate paths in the industry. Tracks ten, “Goin’ Up Yonder,” and eleven, “He Keeps Doing Great Things For Me,” are the inspirational tracks as Hammer gives glory to the Lord for all he has. On the whole this is a solid effort from MC Hammer that deserves a listen. Unfortunately, the fact that it is Hammer may cause people to think that this album is a piece of shit and is not to be taken seriously. Perhaps he deserves a second chance at respectability because he has earned mine with this album.

*no appointment necessary*
by Sandy Atwal special to Imprint
by Chris Edginton special to Imprint If you’ve listened to CFNY at all in the last couple of weeks, you’ve definitely heard of Seven Mary Three. The first single off American SIandurd”Cumbersome” has CFNY written a11 over it. As a matter of fact, 7M3 owe this album and its consequent success to the generosity of radio. After submitting their demo tape to WJRR radio for a contest, the band took first place. With their winnings they relocated to Orlando Florida, got signed by Attic Records and gave birth to American Standard. Indeed “Cumbersome” is radio friendly, but it’s also a really good tune; that rappy part is kind of cool too. A little variation in the
vocals. My only problem with this guy’s voice is his incessant growling. Every tune finds him barking out some sort of accented lyric; the funny thing is that without that growl he’s got a really nice voice, There are plenty of cuts, rhythm changes, and styles that keep the tracks moving along. What makes records like Pearl Jam’s Ten and Smashing Pumpkin’s Siamese Dream so great are their strong vocals and diverse tracks, and each of those attributes are found on this album. American Standard is a really impressive debut album, with songs that are lasting, varied, and invoke a variety of moods. Things can only get better for these guys. With an inevitable increase in radio airplay and free shows (locally October 10th - The Horseshoe Tavern) their exposure will only increase their fan base. You can be sure you’ll be hearing more about these rockstars in the future.
After last year’s surprisingly mellow Stoned and Dethroned, The Chain are back in full fuzz form with a menacing single decrying the state of our beloved rock’n’roll. As noisy as anything from Psychacandy, this new single doesn’t say much, but says it well: “I love the bbc/ I love it when they’re p&in’ on me/ and I love mtv/ I love it when they’re shittin’ on me.” Besides the obliquely obvious reference to the BBC’s banning of the Mary Chain’s “Reverence,” this song is like a lash from all MTV/ BBC hostile groups who are sick of the everyday shit they see and hear on mainstream radio and TV stations. Two of the three b-sides, “Bleed me,” and “3 3 l/3” are a blending of the old and the new. They all start like Stoned and Dethroned tracks, but the fuzzy guitar we all know and love kicks in soon enough. The final track, “Lost Star” is the only truty mellow point on the entire single and provides a nice closer. Nothing new, that much is true, but the Jesus and Mary Chain have made a career out of one good move, and as long as they keep reinventing the powerchord, that’s good enough for me, and that should be good enough for you too.
The lead singer James Labrie who is Canadian by the way, sounds like a young Bruce Dickinson. His voice suits Dream Theater’s art rock concept perfectly. The other band members including John Pertrucci on lead guitar and Derek Sherinian on keyboards, complete a very talented roster. The’rest of this disc is taken from a live show these guys did earlier in the year. Favorite renditions of bands that the group grew up on are featured in different variations. Material from Led Zeppelin, Genesis, and Jqumey among others are covered. The band bashes away at these tunes and really show off their musical&y as well. This band might have a hard time catering to an average fan due to the complexities and consistent variations in their songs. But judging by the success of the group’s
last album, Dream Theater have little to worry about. This disc rocks the socks off anything I have heard in a while. The band never holds back, always delving into different musical directions, even on the covers. It’s really cool to hear a band with the technicality of Rush, the rawness of Maiden, mixed with the complexities of King Crimson. Although heavily influenced by these bands, Dream Theater has a sound all its own. The average person might not understand what Dream Theater is about, but musicians will. This disc is obviously geared toward the musically inclined, but can easily be enjoyed by anyone. If you do pick it up, try and understand that this is not your average band. Then sit down and listen to this masterpiece.
MONDAYS: INDIE MUSIC ‘NIGHT
by Patrick Handlovsky special to Imprint This impressively talented quintet brings back memories of early Rush. The title track, “A Change Of Seasons,” is a twentythree minute song containing more time changes than King Crimson couldhandle. Focusing on the bands talent, this song blew me away! The amount of time it would take to put a song of this magnitude together is mind boggling. Mike Portnoy’s double bass drum flurries mixed with John Myung’s bass licks, propel the band into odd time signatures again and again.

The debut album of JLM, a Canadian group from Quebec, entitled Come Into My Life, typifies the Eurobeat sounds of today. The group consists of the staple female lead singer backed up by the rapping, English-challenged male. It is extremely odd that a Canadian group gets release commitments from over 40 countries around the world; however, this is the case with JLM, largely due to their number one dance smash “Come Into My Life” and the chart rising follow up entitled “Groovy Beat.” Unfortunately, the rest of the effortdoesn’tquite hit themark. As is quite a regularity for many of today’s dance acts, JLM lacks creativity in both lyrical content and in their beat selections. The slower songs “Dangerous,” “Fading Love,“and “Whenever You’re Near
Me (I Fall)” are tactically placed in order to break the monotony of the same beats. These slower tracks almost save KM, as they prove that they have a repertoire; yet, all in all, I found myself bored with the CD. If the shining tracks, “Come into My Life” or “Groovy Beat” are enough to make you want to buy the CD, my advice to you is this: buy the CD singles and save the money - this way you can still hear these good songs and not have to listen to another Eurobeat onehit wonder trying to cash in by slopping aCD together around their mega-hit. if you are looking for comparisons, groups Iike Maxx, Ice MC, and 2 Unlimited sound very similar. Unfortunately, JLM hasn’t broken the Eurobeat mould and it is shameful that agroup with this little talent can even make a CD. It is groups like JLM that cause me to question my existence in an institution of higher learning, when I could be in a studio somewhere making shitty songs (like the ones I have just heard) and still be getting paid. .,,.: :.:..... .j..( .__. ; ._..

Hunters and Collectors is an Australian group that has been around for ages; at least more than a decade. In that time, they have released numerous albums, certainly more than ten. With their newest release,Demon Flower, they have failed to get out of the eighties sound and come up very short of releasing quality tunes. LRad vocalist Mark Seymour, whose vocals are generally a spoken cracking drawl, is heading this group of seven which use brass, like the trumpet played by Jack Howard, trombone presented by Michael Waters, and Jeremy Smith’s french horn to add variety to their staid medium. Still focussing on the electric and synth aspect of the music, the lack of originality is a desperate cry for the fast forward button. The first track, “Easy,” uses wonky guitar slurs and a chorus with group vocals to deal with the issue of a comfortable relationship. The second track, “Panic in the Shade,” uses the technique common throughout the album of spoken word, a low bass line, and a trumpet interlude. “Courtship of America” uses elevated octave vocals during the chorus to induce a calm effect while “Betrayer” draws out the guitar chords onto a steady drum beat and backing brass. The final track, “Ladykiller,” is a sad love ballad accentuated by tambourine and acoustic guitar. However, tracks like “Back in the Hole” with its desperate cry, “The One & Only You” in typical rock song fashion with a poor repetitive guitar pattern, “Mr. Bigmouth,” “ Drop in the Ocean,” and “Newborn” are forgettable tunes. This is a polished production with acrowded House sound. However the pop tunes of this album j ust have a lifeless bland quality to them, allowing the group to fall flat on their faces in the dirt.
