Indie frontwoman’s solo debut more country than rock ‘n’ roll

February 1, 2006 Ashley Marty 0

While seemingly every interviewer in the world was busy asking Jenny Lewis questions such as, “How is your relationship with your mother?” and “Did you and Conor Oberst hook up?” or even the occasional, “So what’s the deal with you and fellow Rilo Kiley member Blake Sennett?” we, due to a lack of proximity to the pretty red-haired girl currently gracing the pages of both Jane and Spin magazines, decided to let her brand new album, “Rabbit Fur Coat” speak for itself.

Top Tunes

1. “No Kind of Life”- Clearlake

Amber

The first track from the band’s third album makes no excuses for their love of The Smiths and British guitar rock.

2. “Maintain the Focus”-

Test Icicles

For Screening Purposes Only

Part post-punk, part hardcore, part dance rock and entirely catchy – in an almost scary sort of way. […]

Emo band ‘chases’ fame with College Crowd

February 1, 2006 Nancy Sai 0

Chasing Monroe is famous.

In 2004, they released a demo. They have played over a hundred shows in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. They are increasingly getting hits on their Web site and have an avid, growing fan base.

They have yet to make a TV appearance or own the cover of Spin. […]

Students get ‘play’-ful at WIRED 2006

February 1, 2006 Matt Stambaugh 0

This year’s WIRED was so funny, it was a sin. Seven of them, actually.

“The Seven Deadly Sins” was the theme of the third annual WIRED, a 24-hour competition in which groups of students write, cast, direct, rehearse and ultimately perform seven one-act plays. […]

Shut the Hell Up!

(in the library)

Since my freshman year here, I have always found the old library as a haven where I could escape from the noise and commotion of the Towers and get my work done.

During the summer of my sophomore year, the College spent millions of dollars building a new library for the students’ convenience. […]

Don’t be a prick! (It’s just a little prick)

February 1, 2006 Signal Editorial Staff 0

With January wrapped up, yesterday also marked the end of what the American Red Cross and other blood service organizations had designated Volunteer Blood Donor Month. With donated blood levels constantly in the red (pun intended), winter months usually show the greatest shortage because many habit donors are on holiday vacations or ill and unable to give. […]

Tecco, Zoda highlight solid team effort

January 25, 2006 Ray Lodato 0

The College’s men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams had a strong showing against Division I schools last Saturday at the Maryland Invitational. Because it was an invitational meet there was no scoring, but the Lions pulled together as a team and contributed qualifying times while building for the postseason. […]

Underclassmen prove their worth

While many students were on semester break, the College’s wrestling team was grappling, slamming and pinning the competition at the annual Lions’ Invitational and the Budd Whitehill Dual Meet Challenge hosted by Lycoming College.

Freshman Chris Prihoda led the Lions by collecting a 3-0 record at 141 pounds, while senior Keith Bjorhus posted a 2-0 record at 285 pounds, keeping his undefeated season intact at 9-0. […]

Lions come out flat in double dual meet

January 25, 2006 Lauren Kohout 0

This past weekend, the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams each suffered a pair of losses in a double dual meet against West Chester University and Johns Hopkins University, but showed some promising individual efforts.

The men’s team dropped a 138-230 decision to West Chester and a 127-233 loss to Johns Hopkins, the College’s first dual losses of the year, to bring them to 4-2. […]

Frank, Miller lead the way behind staunch defense

January 25, 2006 Matt Chando 0

Whatever questions have faced the women’s basketball team this season, Erin Frank has provided the answers. Frank’s team-high 11 points and seven rebounds helped return the College to its winning ways on Saturday by defeating William Paterson University (WPU) 44-39 in Packer Hall. […]

Balanced scoring helps end three-game skid

January 25, 2006 Tim Fox 0

After losing three straight conference games, the men’s basketball team proved it is as talented as any team by knocking off the top-ranked Pioneers of William Paterson University 73-63 at home on Saturday.

Not only did the Lions defeat the Pioneers, who came into the game on a nine-game winning streak and tied for first in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC), but they also did it with their most balanced scoring attack of the season. […]

Annoy the wrong person and pay the price

January 25, 2006 Michelle McGuinness 0

I thought I’d start the semester off with a little humor.

A man goes on the Internet. He posts something annoying. He posts it under a user name. Then he goes to jail.

The unfortunate thing is that this is no joke.

On Jan. 5, President Bush signed a bill that assigns serious repercussions, including fines and up to two years in jail, to people who anonymously “annoy” other people on the Internet. […]

Diet and die – it’s a proven fact

January 25, 2006 Marie Bubenzer 0

Trends and fashions are dictated from all different angles – magazines, TV shows and advertisements. We are told that slim is sexy. Thinness rules!

It is expressed that larger people have a large problem. In the United States, four out of five women are dissatisfied with their appearance. […]

There’s no “I” in basketball

January 25, 2006 Kenny Lucas 0

I was never really into sports until I turned seven, when I was introduced to basketball.

It wasn’t a sport I adapted to quickly. In the beginning, I was pretty bad: I had a terrible shot, my defense was wretched and I couldn’t pass for dear life. I thought my career in basketball would end very soon. […]
