November 15 marks the opening of muzzleloader season in Alabama, and by the 20th, gun season will be in full swing, and the woods will be crawling with hunters armed with high-powered rifles. This season brings about a much greater danger in the woods than the previous weeks of archery season.

FACT OR FICTION? FALSE: Despite popular stories, Lincoln did not “whip up” his speech on the back of an envelope just hours before speaking to the crowd on Cemetery Hill. Lincoln was a careful writer who often spent days working on his speeches. He wrote at least half or more of the Gettysburg Address on White House stationery. Lincoln applied finishing touches to his speech in his bedroom at the Wills’ House on November 18. Several copies of the Gettysburg Address are in existence. None of them are written on the back of an envelope.

the artist within: tara grayson, our feature cover artist 17 November 2010

In a world where technology is prevalent and creation primarily deals with making one’s life easier, it’s nice meeting someone who actually cares for something more meaningful and more beautiful. Meet Tara Grayson, a junior at the University of West Alabama. She’s an actress, a dancer, and a lover of the arts. “It’s sad that art isn’t as sara cole important and meaningful as it was back in the day,” the artist said. “It’s just not as respected as it once was.” Grayson has always held this strong passion for the arts. She realized that she possessed this innate creativity while growing up, and she just couldn’t let it go to waste. So during her freshmen year at Hazel Green High School, she began taking art classes, which pened a whole world of artistic possibilities. Embracing her talent, Grayson began testing and trying new mediums. She soon discovered that she could cover any form ranging from charcoal to color pencil to pastel drawings. “My absolute favorite mediums though are graphite and acrylic. There’s just something about the way they move and feel against a canvas,” said Grayson. “The only thing I haven’t tried is oil painting, but I will one day.” During her junior year of high school, Grayson was given the task of painting for her art class. She had never actually painted anything before; her artwork mainly consisted of drawings, so painting in her art class was a challenge for her. She searched for inspiration, stumbling upon a photo of a gorgeous rural setting. “It really spoke to me,” explained Grayson. Adding her own creative genius, the artist transformed the photo into her own artwork, adding her own flare. The result is what you see on the cover of this issue of muse. It was the first painting she ever completed. Entitled The Simple Life, this piece of art portrays the beauty of simplicity, a world without the busy distractions of everyday life. “I love this piece,” Grayson commented on her painting. “When I look at it, it gives me this sense of peace. I wanted to paint something that I could hold onto forever, and I think I completed that task.” When it comes to her artwork, Tara gains inspiration from anything that speaks to her, anything she finds fascinating or interesting. She places her own touch on reality, working to evoke the emotions of her audience. “It’s all about expressing what’s up here, in my mind,” Grayson explained. “Whenever I construct

something, it’s like I’m placing my mind, my vision, on paper.” She calls her artistic style “TaraVision” because the

UWA junior Tara Grayson poses with her work in progress, The Simple Life. products of her creativity come straight from her personal thoughts and feelings. “It’s life through my eyes,” she added. However, her art comes from more than just reality. When painting, the artist finds that music helps draw her mind into her artwork; it evokes her creativity. “When I’m working on my artwork, I’ll listen to one whole CD non-stop, all the way through,” explained Grayson. “I love music, and I feel as though that form of art adds something to my art. I painted this painting of Times Square, and it was really busy; I just kept adding things to it. While working on that piece, I listened to Colbie Caillat, and I really feel as though her laid-back style helped calm me down as I continued to work on that piece.” Each piece of work Tara completes seems to portray the different points she’s going through in life. Going back to her Times Square painting, Grayson explained how she was going through a really “hectic” time in her

life, and the painting just seems to explain that on its own. “It’s like that with The Simple Life,” remarked Grayson. “I was at a happy point in my life, and you can tell just by looking at the painting. If you look at my artwork as a whole, you can see when I was happy or sad, stressed or calm.” In a way, that’s why Grayson continues to work her creativity into art. She believes that art is a healthy way to express herself; she described it as a “silent concentration, a constructive way of letting loose.” She wishes more people would break into the artistic world. She finds that in today’s society, many individuals are distracted by society’s many advancements. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and evoke the artist within. “I honestly believe that everyone houses an internal artist somewhere within,” explained Grayson. “It’s just that many people are scared to express themselves; they’re too scared of criticism. But what you have to understand is that, with art, you just have this freedom. You can construct anything you want, anything that has meaning to you, and that’s what’s so wonderful about it.” Grayson is currently a pre-med major at UWA. Once she earns her degree, she hopes to continue on to medical school and one day become an optometrist. “I mean, if I could just paint all day for the rest of my life and actually make a living, I would definitely do it,” explained Grayson. “I just decided that I would make it a hobby instead.” Grayson envsions painting as becoming a permament part of her life: “I hope to continue to do it for a passion. Art is a way for me to let out emotions that I bottle up; it’s a way for me to deal with different things that are going on with my life. I get so much joy out of just a blank canvas and some paint because I can create whatever I want and different people interpret each piece differently, which makes art so beautiful. I love that God blessed me with a talent that I can share with others.”

The Sucarnochee Revue

s show time nears Ivory Robinson and Justin McCoy began to prepare for their portion of the Sucarnochee Revue. Their songs will be early in the first set, so they need to be ready, and they are. The Sucarnochee Stage Hands, as they are called, have Connie James come a long way in a short time. In February 2009, both Robinson and McCoy were interns on the Sucarnochee Revue, working with Jack White, producer and host of the Revue Radio Show. White was also the one who discovered their singing talents. Since that time, the Stage Hands have gained much experience and fame. They now even have a regular spot on the Revue each month. Together, Robinson and McCoy are fantastic. Their harmony brings to mind groups like the Righteous Brothers; fans are always left wanting more each time they take the stage. McCoy, a native of De Kalb, Mississippi, grew up singing. He began in the church, leading the adult choir at the age of four. Robinson’s journey was similar. Along with his brothers Romell and Tyrell, he was brought up in church. All three sang in the choir. His mom, Belinda, and dad, Ivory L., were also vocalists. “I did not think of myself as a singer until I was about 15. Then my brothers and I started to enjoy our music.

staying awake while studying www.uwa.edu/muse

17 November 2010

Studying is an inevitable part of college. The "ideal" student studies new material frequently so that it can be easily recalled on test day, but let’s be honest. Most us end up spending the night before the test trying to cram three weeks' worth of material into our brains in a few hours. There are many nights when I find myself barely clinging to the edge of consciousness as I try to fit in some last minute studying. Often, I end up falling asleep, only to wake up with my notes scattered across my bed. Given the busy lives of average college students, sometimes cramming in the wee hours of the morning is the only option, aside from failing miserably. However, I have discovered a few tricks to help us all stay awake while studying in the twilight hours.

cated for break time. Restricting the length of your breaks will take some discipline, but the rewards are well worth it.

3) My personal favorite – POWER NAPS! Believe it or not, taking a short cat nap will leave you more energized. However, be sure to set an alarm so that your nap time will not turn into bedtime. Procrastination is never good, but we are all guilty of it. I would advise everyone to study for a test several days in advance, but sometimes, you just have to CRAM! Just remember these easy tips to help get you through the night. The next time you find yourself up at twelve in the morning with fifty boring pages of history to read, remember: there is still hope!

ericka reed

Begin by monitoring your diet. Believe it or not, what you eat can affect how well you study. Knowing what to eat and when to eat it is not only healthy for you, but this knowledge will also enable you to study longer and more efficiently. 1) "Be sure to eat three meals a day!" We’ve often had this advice drilled in our heads since we first began to comprehend the English language. However, when it comes to preparing for a night of cramming, IGNORE this age-old rule. If you know ahead of time that you will be spending the whole night studying instead of sleeping, eat five or six small meals instead of three large ones. Eating frequent, light meals as opposed to three heavy ones greatly decreases drowsiness. 2) STAY AWAY FROM JUNK FOOD! Whether it be from stress, mild hunger, or sheer boredom, many of us often gravitate towards junk food while studying. True, cookies, Twinkies, and Doritos may give you a quick burst of energy, but the imminent sugar crash will only result in "Heavy Eye Syndrome." Snack on fruit, like apples or pears, instead! They will help you maintain a constant blood sugar, which is beneficial in helping you combat sleepiness. 3) Stay hydrated. Dehydration greatly increases drowsiness, so drink plenty of water! *Another added benefit: the frequent bathroom trips will help you stay awake. Create an environment conducive to studying. Almost everyone has a favorite place to study, a place where he feels most productive. For some, it may be the library, the Student Union Building (SUB), or outside surrounded by nature. Others might prefer their own dorm rooms. Wherever it is, be sure to follow one important rule: ELIMINATE ALL COMFORT! 1) Do not study on soft, comfy surfaces. This means avoid the bed, the sofa and beanbags. Stay away from any furniture that is capable of inducing sleep. Instead, study at a table, desk, or even on the floor (as long as you are not lying down). 2) If possible, set the thermostat lower than you normally would. Studying in a room that is cooler than you prefer helps you stay awake and alert. So turn the heat down, and ditch the blankets during winter study sessions. 3) Use strong lighting. Dim lighting strains your eyes, causing them to work harder and tire more quickly. Softer lighting also increases drowsiness. *100 watt compact fluorescent lightbulbs emit an extremely bright light while using only a fraction of the energy of incandescent bulbs. 4) Avoid relaxing music. Sure, slow jams sound really good at night, but those relaxing melodies can quickly put you to sleep. Instead, listen to upbeat instrumentals (music with lyrics can often be distracting). *Check out the “Classical Standards” station on Yahoo! Music is great to listen to while studying. Take breaks. It is almost impossible to focus on Machiavelli’s The Prince (sorry History majors, but I found it very boring) or the intricate processes involved in DNA replication for an extended period of time. Spending five hours continuously staring at lines upon lines of text will often cause you to turn the pages of your textbook into a pillow. Instead, take a fifteen-minute break every 45 minutes to an hour. These breaks allow your brain a chance to rest and process the material you’ve just covered. So what should you do during your break? Anything! Try these: 1) Exercise! A brief workout is sure to wake you up. 2) Watch TV, play video games, talk to a friend…anything that will completely take your mind off studying. Just be sure that you do not exceed the fifteen minutes allo-

the road to saving gas

Have you ever heard your grandparents say, “I remember when gas was $0.25 a gallon"? Well, once upon a time, buying gas actually was cheaper than having a life-saving operation. Hard to believe, right? Even though gas prices seem to be on a perpetual incline, there are still ways to get more mileage for your money. So, What Can I Do? 1. Shop online! It’s not just for buying shoes anymore. Visit www.gasbuddy.com or www.gaspricewatch.com to find the lowest gas prices in your area. Prices are continually updated, a feature which increases your search accuracy. 2. Know when to buy. Avoid buying gas on weekends or during weekday rush hours. ericka reed Gas stations have a tendency to increase their prices as the level of traffic rises. 3. Get rid of all that junk in the trunk. Remove excess and unnecessary weight from your vehicle. This means taking out extra clothes, boxes, school books. that are just lying around unused. Be especially sure to remove exterior structures, such as bike racks, that are not being used. Increased weight causes the engine to work harder and burn extra fuel. 4. Pump up the tires. Make sure tires are properly inflated. Low tire pressure increases resistance, causing the engine to exert extra energy and use more gas. 5. Warming up doesn’t take all day. During cold weather, 30-45 seconds is sufficient time for the engine to warm up. In fact, the engine actually warms up faster on the road. 6. Fast, slow! Fast, slow! NO! Drive at a constant speed. Slowing down and speeding up wastes fuel. Use cruise control when traveling long distances and save up to 7% of gas. 7. It’s okay to take the easy road. Find the smoothest route possible. Turning corners, driving around curves, and switching lanes require more gas. Rough roads, such as dirt or gravel roads and roads with uneven pavement, can decrease gas mileage by up to 30%. 8. I think I can. I think I can. Accelerate before you begin to ascend a hill, not during the ascent. Accelerating while going uphill strains the engine. Acquire enough speed to climb over the hill well before you reach the incline. 9. To AC or not to AC? That is the question! It is a fact that running the AC burns gas and that the only other alternative to getting air is rolling down the windows. Rolling down the windows is fine if you are traveling below 60 mph. However, at speeds of 65 mph or faster, letting down the windows creates air drag, which causes the engine to work harder. At these speeds, it is best to turn the AC on just enough to cool the vehicle. *It is easy for a cool vehicle to remain cool. Once the desired temperature has been reached, decrease the AC to a moderate setting and enjoy a comfortable ride. 10. It’s the interstate. Not the Indy track. Sudden stops and starts can quickly drain the gas tank. Always accelerate and decelerate slowly. Most importantly: DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT! It’s not only unsafe and illegal to do otherwise, but driving at a moderate pace also helps you conserve gas. See, it’s not that hard to save gas. It just takes a little patience and common sense. And the best part: saving gas saves the environment by reducing air pollution. It’s a win-win situation!

winter mosaic

“Winter Mosaic” was an apt name for the concert that the UWA Choir performed in Bibb Graves Hall on November 16. The Christmas-themed concert was a blend of traditional Christmas songs, classical music, and Gospel. A few of the selections were given a modern interpretation. “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” for example, was accompanied by Reginald Campbell on trumpet and dancer Jasmine Little. Miles Bowman’s reading of the lyrics to “Little Drummer Boy” was interpreted by Adonis Bowman on drum. In the middle of the concert, choir director Willie Williams led the audience in a sing-a-long of four Christmas carols, including “Joy to the World.” The concert ended with a moving rendition of “Betelehemu,” a Nigerian carol.

uwa students meet gubernatorial candidates

On October 28, Commissioner Ron Sparks spoke on the Courthouse Square. He also took the time from of his busy schedule to speak with UWA’s Student Government Association Officers, Senators, and Representatives. Sparks thanked the UWA students for their support, and he stressed how critical their support was to his campaign. On Friday October 29, SGA took six students to Demopolis to meet Dr. Robert Bentley, the Republican gubernatorial candidate. Bentley took the time to speak with the UWA students and pose for a picture. While speaking in Rooster Hall in downtown Demopolis, he addressed the need for higher education in West Alabama. He also said how UWA needs to play a critical role in educating the region. Bentley proposed different ways to encourage development in West Alabama, and he personally thanked Dr. Richard Holland for his years of service to the region. Both candidates for Governor went out of their way to stress how important education and institutions of higher learning are to the development and success of the State of Alabama.

autobiography of mark twain, vol. i alan brown

In 1906, Mark Twain hired a stenographer to assist him with the writing of his autobiography. Lying in bed and smoking cigars, Twain dictated his recollections and opinions because he believed that “talking out” his life story enabled him to adopt a more colloquial tone. Twain continued working on his autobiography until the death of his youngest daughter, Jean, in 1909. Twain had published Chapters from My Autobiography in twenty five installments in the North American Review in 1906-07, but he omitted over 5,000 pages of memoirs that he—and his heirs and publisher— believed would do irreparable harm to his reputation. The author also left behind handwritten notes in which he stated that he did not want this material published until a century after his death. “There may be a market for that kind of wares a century from now,” Twain wrote. “There is not hurry. Wait and see.” The Autobiography of Mark Twain was published this month by the University of California Press on the centenary of the author’s death. In this unexpurgated book, readers will be able—for the first time—to hear Twain voice his scalding opinions of the “grotesque” Rockefellers, his “fiendish” Florentine landlady, and even American soldiers, whom he referred to as “uniformed assassins.” Twain also expresses his opposition to the United States’ imperial mission in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. He chastises American missionaries in Africa. Instead of preaching Christianity to the natives of the “Dark Continent,” Twain thinks they should be working in the racist South and “try to convert the heathens down there,” who turned their backs on lynching and other hate crimes. Twain aims his satirical barbs at himself as well. He portrays himself as being “bamboozled” by publishers, business partners, and “moochers.” Twain even admits to being outsmarted by a wild turkey. Not everything in the autobiographical is an expression of Twain’s acerbic wit. The book also contains idyllic descriptions of landscapes from his youth. He tells of his childhood visits to his uncle’s farm in Missouri, where he enjoyed playing with the children of his uncle’s slaves. Twain writes, “In my schoolboy days, I had no aversion to slavery. I was not aware there was anything wrong about it.” Readers eager to uncover the “real” Mark Twain in the Autobiography should proceed with caution. This is not the scrubbed and sanitized author of Tom Sawyer, the lovable curmudgeon of American of American letters. These are the last words of an angry prophet, who exposed the buffoonery, the cruelty, and the nobility inherent in the American character.

world day of remembrance for road traffic victims

Every thirty seconds someone is killed or maimed on the world’s roads. Road traffic accidents kill nearly 1.3 million people every year and injure or disable as many as fifty million more. Road accidents are the leading cause of death in people ages five to thirty-four in the U.S. Most road traffic injuries can be prevented by reducing speeding and drunk driving and by increasing helmet, seat belt, and child restraints. November 21 is the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. The day is observed on the third Sunday of each November. It was first observed nationally in 1993 by RoadPeace. The day was created to honor the victims of road crashes. On this day, many people hold remembrance services and flower-laying services. World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims also includes posters, media coverage, and celebrity involvement. There are several ways to get involved in the day. Plant a tree or flower in memory of someone you know, light a candle, or observe a moment of silence. However, honoring victims does not have to take place on only one day. There are many things you can do every day. Don’t speed or tailgate, always wear your seat belt, and never drink and drive. The best way to honor the memory of someone you love is to protect yourself and others from harm.

alpha sigma tau on the road F

riday afternoon around 2:00pm, ten members of the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority, four recruits, and four coaches rolled out of Livingston bound for Pensacola, Florida. The girls were invited to play at the Flag Football Regionals against ashlynn frith other universities from the South. After a night of sleep, they played their first game at 8:00am Saturday morning against the ladies from the University of West Florida. They then played at 2:00pm against Southern University. Although the ladies did not advance to the next round, they had a wonderful

time and made memories to last a lifetime! Ashley Vaughn, freshman, went as an extra with the Sigma Tau’s to the regional championships. “Over the weekend we played two teams. They were both very competitive teams overall,” she said. “The Sigma Tau’s played with a lot of spirit even though we lost both games. The loss of the games didn’t keep us down because overall we are just a bunch of girls that know how to have fun in any situation.” Team members include Karen Ayala-Baylon, Pamela Becerril, Hannah Bonner, Jillie Brokenshaw, LaQuita Bush, Kayla Coats, Ashlynn Frith, Sarah Lawler, Maria Norah, Devan Schryer, Hannah Shirley, Myeisha Smith, Markita Stewart, Ashley Vaughn, and Crystal Welch.

fall sports’ seasons coming to a close

endurance cross country prepares for regionals Two weeks ago our UWA cross country team made history at conference on. November 6th achieving fourth place the highest place in school history. The record setting season does not end there. This Saturday our tigers will have yet another opportunity to achieve its highest placing finish this time at Regionals. Holding a rank of fifth in the region our men’s team will just have to hold off the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers and Christian Brothers Academy. Of course this will be no easy task already beating both schools, UAH managed to slip by our tigers at conference edging us out of third place by merely four points. Jonathan Sellers, our highest placing finisher at conference, said “We will rebound from our loss to UAH; we will be more rested, and live up to the best team in UWA history.” Senior Craig Warlick says “My entire confidence is in this team, there has never been a better team here at UWA.” When asked about his hopes for this Saturday Coach Medina had this david to say “Everyone races to the best of their ability. The whole season of farist training, hard work, and long workouts have been geared for this race. After all this work it’d be a shame not to get fifth or better.” This season has been most successful for our men’s team and it’s definitely one for the record books so be sure to wish any and all of our cross country runners the best of luck this Saturday.

The Hill Trophy is sponsored by the City of Florence, Ala., Florence-Lauderdale Tourism, Opti-Net, the Marriott Shoals Hotel and Spa and Herff Jones.

A

honors program takes on the ‘big easy’ jordan story and shelly huth

M

embers of the University of West Alabama Honors program were recently treated to an all expense paid trip to New Orleans. Although, at first, this may seem a strange combination, a group of students with both high GPAs and IQs, mixed with a city with a reputation like no other, the mix completely makes sense when looking beyond Bourbon Street. New Orleans truly is a city like no other. The intermingling of cultures has helped to create a place that has evolved into an amalgamation of history, beauty, and education. Luckily, both students and the accompanying mentors, had Dr. Lesa Shaul to shepherd them through the dizzying whirl of the city, and she made sure that all were treated to the different aspects that New Orleans has to offer. As head of the Honors Program, Shaul did a wonderful job balancing the past with the present. Not only was the group allowed free time to explore the city itself, but she made sure to include aspects of the city’s history that most may not have known. The excursion to the World War II museum is a perfect example of the care taken when planning this trip. The students first watched a 4D movie on the basics and heroics involved in WWII. It featured moving props, shaking chairs and fire. The group was then given free roam of the museum where they explored everything from nation’s casualty exhibits to personal stories from the surviving soldiers or the families left behind. The students then enjoyed a free meal at Bubba Gump’s, a Cajun restaurant modeled after the movie Forest Gump. Later that evening, the students were given time to experience the nightlife of New Orleans particularly, Bourbon Street. There they saw everything from evangelists shouting to cross dressers dancing to wedding receptions parading down the streets. The next day the honors students ventured to the Voodoo Museum where they encountered a self-proclaimed ‘black widow’, or woman who’s partners die within four days, named Cinnamon. The group learned of Voodoo’s history and the lies that have formed its reputation. The museum also led to a tour of a graveyard. Here they saw the strange seeming above ground graves, being that New Orleans is below sea level which causes buried graves to rise from the soil. The group then made there way home after snacking in the New Orleans mall. The students each left with increased knowledge of WWII, Voodoo, New Orleans culture and the fact that Bourbon Street reeks after midnight.

basketball opens with home victories

B

asketball season is back, and there is excitement for the upcoming season here on campus for the Tigers because both men’s and women’s teams have a completely different look on their rosters, compared to last year. Still, both teams will be competitive in the Gulf South Conference. On the men’s side, UWA is led by pre season All-GSC team member Alquan Mendenhall, who is the team’s leading returning scorer. Mendenhall averaged 11.2 points a game last season with a 44 shooting percentage. The women are led by pre season All-GSC team member Latashia Greer. She scored 17.4 points a game and averaged 7.5 rebounds a season ago. The top newcomers on the men’s side are Division 1 High Point University transfer Ibrahim Appiah, ranked JUCO player Marino Shawn Thompson, and Richard Dixon. Appiah played in 46 games at High Camirand Point. Last season, he shot 50 percent from the 3 point line. Thompson, a transfer from East Mississippi Community College, averaged 6.6 points a game and 4.4 rebounds. Dixon, who also transferred from East Mississippi Community College, averaged 6.2 points a game and led his team in three-point shooting percentage. The women’s top newcomers are Mystee Dale and LaShandra McCoy. Dale is a transfer from Division 1 Marshall University. She averaged 6.9 points and 3 rebounds a game for the Thundering Herd. McCoy is a transfer from West Georgia. She averaged 12 points and 4 rebounds a game.

grapes and cream

When I first tasted this tart, sweet, refreshingly light desert, I couldn’t put my finger on what exactly it was

Now we usually think of sour cream as what cools our mouth of spicy hot Mexican food, or paired with cheese and bacon atop a baked potato, but if you can just think of sour cream as kind of a thinner yogurt with a slight tang, you’ll see exactly why it makes such a marvelous fruit dip. Just a little lemon and sugar and that was so delicious.

Mix the sugar and a squeeze of the lemon into the sour cream. To fancy things up I like to pu t the fresh green grapes in a ma rtini glass and top wit h a dollop of the creamy mixture, then sprinkle with a littl e zest. If you have it, a little brown sugar on top is a gre at addition. Voilà, you have a de sert to impress.

my big stress reliever

muse: to ponder; to be absorbed in deep thought

The Lady Killer, Cee Lo Green **** (of 5)

music relaxes my mind and gives me some time to just breathe

Most people express themselves with the type of music they listen to. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music is a big part of my life and my tastes in music vary depending on the day and on my mood. Music is a fine art that can help people out when they do not even realize it. I asked one of my good friends how music affects her life and she told me something that many people can relate to. “Music allison lockhart has helped me through some rough times in my life. It became somewhat of an escape from all the things I grew tired of dealing with.” Sometimes when I have a hard day I just sit and relax and listen to music. It just takes everything off my mind. It’s just a type a stress reliever for me. When people use music to improve or maintain their health it is called music therapy. Music therapy, which has been used since the 17th century, and is even more popular in this day and age, is where a therapist uses and all of its facets to help clients cope with problems or build them up. It is used with individuals of all ages and with a variety of conditions, including: psychiatric disorders, medical problems, physical handicaps, sensory impairments, developmental disabilities, substance abuse, communication disorders, interpersonal problems, and aging. Take the time to appreciate the different types of music and let it help you show your emotions.

Death to False Metal, Weezer **1/2 (of 5) Weezer is, to coin a phrase, “that band.” The one that everybody loves, but nobody really likes. The one that is always about to release an stephen luca album that will “change history,” but never really seems to live up to the hype, and despite this, somehow maintains an army of diehard fans who insist that they’re the greatest thing since sliced bread. The Los Angeles-based quartet has successfully maintained this existence for 16 years, from the promising Blue Album and Pinkerton, through the lineup changes and weak follow-up efforts, to this year’s label change. Now, we have Death to False Metal. On paper, it sounded promising: A month and a half after Weezer’s latest offering (and first for Epitaph), Hurley, the band delivered Death To False Metal, a collection of rare songs recorded by modern-day Weezer. In other words: old songs by a new band, put out shortly after the new album, but on the same day as the long-awaited deluxe Pinkerton reissue. On release day, the band would be a few weeks away from starting their latest tour, and Weezer nostalgia would be as healthy as it has been in recent memory.

In execution, though, Death To False Metal is frustratingly hit-or-miss. For every barn-burner (the opener “Turning Up the Radio” is fist-pumping fun), there’s an embarrassing clunker (“I’m A Robot,” though sonically catchy, is lyrically pathetic). For every crushing headbanger (the Nirvanalike “Everyone”), there’s an unfulfilling snoozer (“Losing My Mind”). False Metal consistently fails to find a groove. And then there’s the more obvious problem: These songs, created in the late ’90s or early ’00s, could just as easily be performed by a Weezer cover band. Considering the circumstances of its release, the pointless Toni Braxton cover tacked onto the end of the record, and the goofy— even for Weezer—cover art, it’s hard to think of this collection as anything more than a few decent tracks padded with sub-par songs to round out the band’s contract with Geffen.

It made the pundits go crazy, scored Cee Lo guest spots on every talk show from Letterman to Colbert (where he hilariously changed the chorus into “Fox News”), and offered a welcome stylistic change of pace from just about anything else that’s popular at the moment, but “F--- You” is still basically a novelty song; to really take advantage of the buzz it generated, Green needed to give listeners an album full of even better songs - and songs that didn’t leave “F--- You” sticking out like a sore thumb. He’s delivered on both counts with The Lady Killer, a swinging 14-track set that finds the notoriously scattershot Green as focused as he’s ever been - both in terms of music and in terms of clear crossover ambition. Like any other neo-soul artist, Cee Lo knows how to craft a retro vibe without settling for a simple homage, but he’s less reverent about the music than most of his peers, and the result here is a loose song suite that’s as proud of its classic soul DNA as it is excited about splicing it into a flashy modern hybrid.

Green worked with a small army of producers on the album, but it doesn’t sound like the work of a committee; in fact, it almost works as a concept album, introducing Green as a Lothario with a “license to kill” in the tongue-in-cheek intro, then following him as he hits the town (“Bright Lights Bigger City”), finds out he’s been jilted (“F--- You”), and gets his woo on (“Wildflower”) - all while brushing past soul and R&B touchstones from Motown to ‘80s synth funk. It’s the kind of album that makes room for everything production from the Smeezingtons, a Philip Bailey cameo, a cover of Band of Horses’ “No One’s Gonna Love You” - without sounding chaotic or overstuffed. It’s the work of an artist at the top of his game. Though it isn’t as brazenly eclectic as some of his earlier work, longtime fans shouldn’t mistake The Lady Killer’s comparatively limited scope for evidence that Green is selling out or slowing down; it’s just the logical next step in his inevitable world domination.

joke of the week

The day before Thanksgiving, Hiram Walker from Dallas called up his son, Jay, who was living in New York. “I’ve got bad news for you, son,” Hiram said. “I’m divorcing your mother. I just can’t stand all of her complaining anymore. I’m telling you first because you’re the oldest. Please tell your sister.” As soon as his father hung up, Jay dialed his sister Sally’s number in Detroit. “I’ve got bad news, sis,” Jay said. “ Mom and Dad are getting a divorce.” “No, way,” Sally replied. “I’m going to fly to Dallas and try to talk them out of it. I want you to come with me.” Sally then called up Hiram and said, “You must not get divorced. You and Mom should be thinking of ways to save your marriage instead of giving up on it. Please promise me that you won’t do anything until Jay and I come home tomorrow.” Hiram hung the phone and turned to his wife. “I’ve got good news, honey,” he said. “Jay are Sally are coming home for Thanksgiving this year, and they are even paying their own way!” So today a cop called my house and said my dog was chasing some kid on a bike, I said “that’s funny ‘cause my dog doesn’t have a bike.”

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS Nick gave Sharon her engagement ring from high school and asked her to marry him again. Daniel ordered Daisy to give up their baby for adoption as soon as she was born.

When this young man from Sila, Al, now Silas, walked on the the Livingston University baseball team without so much as an athletic scholarship, few realized what a truely great athlete was in their midst. By the time he left the UWA family to play for the Cincinatti Reds as a first-round draft, Jeff Branson had already amassed 25 school records in baseball and held a .284 hitting average. Branson was also an important member of the U.S. Olympic Baseball Team that earned a gold medal at the Olympics in Seoul, South Korea in 1988.

did abraham lincoln write the gettysburg address on the back of an envelope?

Attics seem to hold family

anetta secrets, history, and sometimes patterson even family riches. Just days

ago in London, a brother and sister found a Chinese porcelain vase in their deceased uncle’s storage that has reportedly sold for 69 million dollars, the highest amount ever received for a piece of Chinese artwork. This porcelain masterpiece sat unnoticed for years in the uncle’s suburban home in west London town of Pinner. This vase is thought to have made it London around 1860, during the Second Opium war after the palaces were being ransacked. After the uncle’s recent death, the siblings started to sort out the uncle’s possessions and thought very little of the vase. The sibling pair finally took the item to an auctioneer in a nearby town called Ruislip, and they were extremely surprised to discover that the yellow and baby blue vase dated from the 1740s. Specifically, this particular vase was almost certainly made for Qian-

In November 1863, the townspeople of Gettysburg invited Abraham Lincoln to speak at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery in Gettysburg. Lincoln’s speech was scheduled to follow the principal address by Edward Everett. While riding the train from Washington, D.C., to Gettysburg, Lincoln jotted down what he referred to as a “few concluding remarks” on the back of an envelope. Lincoln spent the night of November 18 at the home of a lawyer named David Wills. On November 19, 1863, Lincoln stood up to speak to a crowd of 20,000 people, who had become restless after sitting through Everett’s two-hour address. The next day, Lincoln’s little speech received mixed reviews from newspapers of the day. Today, the Gettysburg Address is considered one of the greatest speeches ever delivered in the United States.

long Emperor (1711-1799). The auctioneers estimated that this noble heritage would result in a sale price of about 1.3 million to 1.9 million dollars. However, there is a growing number of wealthy Chinese who are eager to own a piece of their nation’s imperial heritage, so the vase sold for way more than was initially thought. Nine bidders fought against each other vigorously for half an hour, and toward the end of the bid, the price rose to the millions of dollars. After the hammer went down on the sale, the sister reportedly had to step outside to have a breath of fresh air. In the end, a Beijing antiques agent eventually claimed this beautiful prize on behalf of a leading collector from mainland China. Naturally, the siblings are definitely celebrating their find, but the auction house is as well. The buyer has to pay 20 percent premium to the auction house, which, in this case, is about 13.8 million dollars.

November 15 marks the opening of muzzleloader season in Alabama, and by the 20th, gun season will be in full swing, and the woods will be crawling with hunters armed with high-powered rifles. This season brings about a much greater danger in the woods than the previous weeks of archery season. Hunting is a relatively safe sport and should remain so as long as hunters respect the sport and each other. Alabama law requires that hunters wear a minimum of 144 square inches of blaze orange in hunting areas when gun season is open. Common sense dictates not to shoot at anything not clearly seen, but not everyone in the woods can be accused of using common sense. Some are so eager to score a kill that they may be inclined to shoot at a noise or some rustling in the bushes. Blaze orange significantly reduces the chances of being mistaken for a deer and fired at when moving through the brush. In low light conditions, even blaze orange may not be a conspicuous enough warning that the rustling is a person rather than an animal. A good idea is to carry a small flashlight or wear one clipped to a vest or belt. It should be obvious enough that no animal is carrying a light. Only one deer is known to shine a beam of light, and Rudolph is not commonly seen tromping through the woods in Alabama. Although a safety harness is sometimes a bit of a hindrance to movement in a tree stand, when one considers the alternative possibility of a fatal or crippling fall to ground, a harness does not seem to be such a terrible option. Using a rope to pull the weapon up once situated in the stand is also much safer than trying to awkwardly climb a tree with a rifle slung over the shoulder. The great sport of hunting offers a chance to get away and spend some quality time alone in the woods. The serenity of the woods can be very relaxing and quite therapeutic. However, ignoring a few simple safety tips could bring the event to a crashing end and turn a nice outing into a horrible disaster.
