This is where most musicians and artists are made or broken. This is where you’ll find everything that you’ve been waiting for, but never expected. […]
Fall fashion is here and with it comes a few new rules. It’s time for the men to pack away those ugly denim shorts and the ladies to let go of their white pants. I just saw a lovely lady wearing white pants at KatManDu and, while they looked really good on her, I believe in the rule that white pants are for late spring and summer wear only. […]
Looking for something a little more offbeat, hard to find, or just plain cheap? Tried Barnes & Noble and Borders but to no avail? Maybe a retail giant isn’t what you need. You’ll find more personal attention at Princeton’s Micawber Books, right in the heart of the downtown area. […]
We are in a stage of music where pop-punk bands are as abundant as hair bands were in the late ’80s and early ’90s. A tattooed pretty boy with zero gauges in his ears and a broken heart set to a catchy three-chord medley lurks around every corner. Thankfully, there are some exceptions that outshine the Skid Rows and Warrants of our time. […]
The Rat pulsated with acoustic rhythms as five student soloists performed for a jam-packed audience last Friday. Mike Heitmann, Riki Marucci, Dave Salge, Steve Swanson and Jesse Szuch took the stage to play everything from catchy originals to crowd-pleasing favorites. […]

Like the first sip of a frozen milkshake or the stomach-churning sensation of a glittering carnival ride, Brittney Murphy’s latest flick, “Uptown Girls,” provides us with an instant ticket back to the heady excitement, reeling confusion and playful magic of childhood. […]
On DVD / Video:
An Academy Award-winning musical that is packed with blazing melodrama, high-powered dance numbers and plenty of pizzaz.
“Bowling For Columbine”
The Academy Award-winning documentary by Michael Moore is funny, controversial, relevant and just plain worth seeing. […]
Summer in the music industry is normally dominated by tours and music festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnero and this year’s doomed Field Day. While most bands are busy on tour, some spend some time in the studio and squeak out a gem or two when no one’s looking. […]
Puerto Rican rap artist Fat Joe introduced a mix of hip-hop and Latin flavor to the College as he brought down the house at Kendall Hall last Thursday night.
After an hour-and-a-half delay, MCs from Frontline hit the stage and it was almost 10 p. […]
Plane tickets to San Jose, California: $300.
Admission to the 2003 Game Developers Conference: $ 2,000.
Drinks on Bill Gates: Priceless.
Think the video game industry is a “niche” industry? The members of the game development community don’t. […]
All year I’ve been trying to provide an interesting cross-section of music and perhaps raise awareness about some bands that are starting to break but haven’t quite gone top 10 yet. I hope I’ve raised a few eyebrows in my choices of what to review and maybe changed a few minds. […]
