Winning wisecracker returns for an encore

April 22, 2003 Angela Molnar 3

“This ain’t gonna get any better. It’s not a politically correct show, so if you get easily offended, get the fuck out,” Stephen Lynch heartedly warned after he performed his song “Altar Boy” Tuesday night.

He wasn’t kidding. From masturbation to abortion, deformity to homosexuality, nothing was off limits. […]

The glorious art of beer pong, one game at a time

April 15, 2003 Coray Seifert 0

The American college experience is steeped in many traditions that make it the magnificent endeavor that it is today. One of those traditions is the sport of Beirut, commonly referred to as beer pong. While I could write enough for a thesis paper on the sport of Beirut, this is neither the time nor the place. […]

Security was on high alert during Salman Rushdie’s keynote speech last Thursday, but students were not tense as Rushdie closed out the Writer’s Conference.

All the tension only led up to a Y2K- style anticlimax, as Rushdie’s speech went off without a hitch, addressing a full crowd of writers and students who welcomed his presence with open ears. […]

Question: what is crazier than the usual insanity of an Adam Sandler movie? Answer: an insane Adam Sandler movie with Jack “Hereeeee’s Johnny” Nicholson.

April 8, 2003 Diana Ling 0

Ben Folds rocked Kendall Hall last Friday with storytelling, a sing-along and his trademark piano-banging.

Folds took to the stage dressed in red corduroys and a blue T-shirt emblazoned with “Steelworkers for Dukakis.” He gave an intense, crowd-pleasing performance. […]

We love the 90s–neon, leggings and all

April 8, 2003 Casie Wexler 0

It is painful to look back on that 10-year span of my life known as the 90s. But, despite the ludicrous fashion choices, the first decade I can remember from start to finish wasn’t so bad. VH1 may love the 80s, but I love the 90s.

I will even shout it from the rooftops or with the gigantic megaphone left over from 80s One-Hit-Wonder Toni Basil: “I LOVE THE 90s. […]

Blood-lusting, buxom vamp heroine is fair play

April 8, 2003 Coray Seifert 0

This is the worst game I’ve ever played.

That was the beginning of the first draft of my review for Majesco/Terminal Reality’s “BloodRayne,” a game that pits a sultry half-vampire sadist against the pre-Nazi army. At the end of a six-hour marathon playing of the game, I had concluded that BloodRayne was just a typical action game, featuring nothing more than crude humor, lots of blood and a half-vampire with a well-endowed chest.
