Lancaster visits ECU, discusses campaign
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
ECU politics are not the only
politics that involve vast
amounts of mudslinging as is
evident in both campaign ad-
vertisements for Congress and
personal interviews with can-
Incumbent Congressman
Martin Lancaster visited ECU
yesterday to speak to students
on pertinent issues in the cam-
paign. Lancaster spoke on his
stand on issues including the
crime bill and tobacco taxes.
Lancaster also addressed his
opponent Walter Jones, jr. who
he referred to as a "crybaby"
while stating that he felt mud-
slinging is a negative campaign
"He is a person who is a com-
plete and total opportunist and
interestingly a crybaby
Lancaster said. "Here is a fel-
low who got himself beat, in the
district where he lives, by a
woman. So what does he do?
He immediately becomes chair-
man of Democrats for Gardner,
even though almost every job
he has ever held is a job that he
got through his father, through
the Democratic party
Lancaster spoke on issues
that affect North Carolina such as
improving economical situations
in the state.
"1 think the most important
thing for a person representing
the third district of North Caro-
lina is to continue to work for
those programs in Washington
that have enhanced the econorrly
of this region Lancaster said in
an interview with The East Caro-
He said that for many years,
North Carolina has been at the
bottom of the totem pole economi-
cally, but recent projects bring
hope to the region.
"At the top of the list of
projects� for me�is the Global
Transpark which I think is going
to make eastern North Carolina a
true Mecca for economic devel-
opment he said.
The Global Transpark is lo-
cated in Kinston, North Carolina.
According to Lancaster, the
Transpark is located exactly in
the middleofall military in North
Carolina. This is the only Global
Transpark in the world, but there
are two in the study-stages in
Thailand and Frankfurt.
Lancaster said this will bring well-
paying jobs to the region, which,
in turn, will increase the standard
of living.
"It will create jobs for those
farmers who are going to find
fewer and fewer opportunities to
make a good living in farming,
and it's going to put us at the
forefront, of what I think, is high
tech manufacturing for the whole
world he said.
Lancaster said he had brought
"important people" to the area to
get them involved and make this
actually happen. Congressman
Jim Oberstar, Chair of the
Aviation's Sub-committee and
Congressman Nick Joe Rahall,
Chair of the Surface Transporta-
tion Sub-committee both visited
with Lancaster. According to
Lancaster, both of these men au-
thorize any spending at the fed-
eral level that will benefit the
"Admiral Ed Straw, head of
the defense logistics agency has
become so excited about this as a
model for defense logistics that
he has added two of his staff to
the planning group that's work-
ing on planning this because he
wants the finished product to be
one that will be compatible with
what he sees as the logistic need
for the military to be for the fu-
ture Lancaster said.
Lancaster's second goal for his
district is protecting tobacco.
"More tobacco is grown in this
district than in anv other in the
entire country he said.
The third district begins at the
Virginia line, goes to the New-
Hanover County line, going from
Hatteras to the Cumberland
County line.
"So I tell people that my dis-
trict stretches from Norfolk to
Wilmington and from Hatteras to
Fayetteville Lancastersaid. "It's
a very fragmented district. I share
12 counties � ten with Eva
Clayton, two with Charlie Rose
and then I have seven of my own.
It is truly a huge district
According to Lancaster, the
Clinton administration proposed
the tax hike on tobacco with the
understanding that since tobacco
contributes to health care costs, it
should help to pay the cost.
"I do not support sin taxes,
and I have worked my heart out
for two solid years to keep that
tax from being imposed and, in
fact, we were successful he said.
"The success is something that
my opponent will not recognize
Lancaster said he does not
think health care should be fi-
nanced "on the backs of any par-
ticular commodity
"My health care proposal that
I worked on did not have any
additional taxes he said.
Lancaster's third emphasis in
his campaign is the military.
Lancaster serves on the Armed
Forces Committee, and all of the
military, with the exception of
Fort Bragg, is in his district.
"People in eastern North Caro-
lina do not realize the number of
jobs spawned by our military in-
stallations he said.
He spoke of jobs that rely on
the people on military bases such
as restaurant workers, gas station
attendants and car dealers.
"I think it is critically impor-
tant that I return to Congress be-
cause of what's happening in the
military now Lancaster said.
"We have not had any reductions,
and, in fact, at Cherry Point there
has been a 5,000 � job increase
Lancaster voted for increase
expenditures for defense. He
spoke of an advertisement,
funded by Jones, that said he was
rated as a big-spender in Wash-
ington. Lancaster said he has the
rating because he voted against
any cuts in defense spending and
voted for every plus-up he said.
Lancaster said he would not
vote against defense spending to
get a good rating.
"I think for either you or my
opponent to say I am for cutting
defense spending just because I
voted ultimately for the appro-
priations for the defense depart-
ment, is again falling into a rhe-
torical trap Lancastersaid.
Lancaster oted tor the
crime bill, but against the gun
ban. He said that in the House
of Representatives, the assault
weapon bill was a tree-stand-
ing bill which passed, but
which he voted against. The
Senate included the assault
weapons ban in its crime bill,
and Lancaster said Senators
Helm and Faircloth voted for
it when the initial Senatecrime
bill was voted on a year ago.
Lancaster said the Senate
and House passed differing
crime bills and, therefore, a
committee was formed to de-
velop a reconciled bill.
Lancaster said he voted
against particular rules of the
bill, not the entire bill.
"I then was placed in a po-
sition of voting a gainst a crime
bill which had a lot of good in
it and one provision remain-
ing which I objected to and
that was the assault weapon
ban he said.
He mentioned the return of
the death penalty and 100,000
police officers. Since that time,
Lancaster has been respon-
sible forgetting 12 new police
officers on the Greenville

IFC limits membership
Laura Jackman
Staff Writer
For more than three weeks,
the Interfraternity Council (IFC)
has been discussing the issue of
expanding to let two more fra-
ternities join, but there are
clearly two sides to this issue,
and the answer relies heavily
on the numbers.
"Two weeks ago, we con-
ducted an informal vote, and
the decision was unanimous not
to expand said IFC president
John Ezzell.
According to official guide-
lines, a committee must be
formed to evaluate the situa-
tion and make a formal recom-
mendation to the executive
board before a final vote can be
The committee is composed
of presidents of five fraterni-
ties: Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma
Tau Gamma, Kappa Sigma,
Lambda Chi Alpha and Delta
Sigma Phi. Their job is to set up
future guidelines for fraterni-
ties to follow before they can
be considered for recognition
by IFC.
The reason behind this is-
sue, is the loss of the Beta Theta
Pi fraternity this summer.
"Beta just fell through the
cracks said Rob Sensenev,
IFC secretary. "They weren't
actively pursuing new mem-
bers, and they stopped com-
ing to the IFC meetings
IFC wants to make sure that
it never loses another frater-
nity. However, two fraterni-
ties, Pi Lambda Phi and Sigma
Alpha Epsilon are actively
pursuing recognition by IFC.
"Our main concern is to
keep and protect every frater-
nity already recognized by
IFC said administrative vice
president Justin Conrad. "It's
not fair to the other fraterni-
ties who have been here tor as
long as 30 years and are now
in trouble
By trouble, Conrad is refer-
ring to the low pledge num-
bers some fraternities have for
this semester. This could be
due to a few factors like the
economy, the job market or
the fact that male enrollment
at ECU is down this year.
"IFC has to look a tier what
thev have now. 'Conrad said
"For ECU, with its l7,50Ostu-
dents, the ideal number ot
fraternities should be a round
12, and right now we have
Other members of IFC are
also trying to make everyone
in the situation happy, but to
maintain a number that is on
the average.
"We are going to do our
best to keep what we ha e
Sensenev said. "We are in no
way trying to get rid of four
fraternities, but expanding to
let two more on would make
that difficult to do. Other uni-
versities around the country
are holding oft on expanding
and I think it's time VCV did
the same in order to

Pi L ambda Phi and Sigma Al-

the strength IFC is looking for.
Both fraternities have 17 mem-
ber- and 14 pledges, respec-
tively, more individually than
some established fraternities
have combined. And both fra-
ternities will be nationally char-
tered within the next month,
which is quite unique given the
tact that neither are official mem-
bers of IFC.
"Pi Lamb is out for the whole
Greek system to flourish, not just
for ourselves said Pi Lamb
president Stu Hooper. "We be-

Hooper mentioned that the
statistics quoted to IFC regard-
ing national numbers does not
relate to ECU. Other schools
were studied, and a school like
Clemson, with 27,000 students
(10,000 more than ECU) has only
12 fraternities.
"In terms of not expanding, I
think IFC's theory on national
numbers doesn't apply to ECU
Hooper said.
What ECU is concerned with
is the possibility of expanding
too largely and losing relation it
already has with its members, a
repeat of what happened with
the Betas.
"It would be a tremendous
honor to be recognized by IFC
said Sigma Alpha Epsilon presi-
dent Troy Dreyfus. "And we want
to be part of it. However, it won't
make or break us because we're
here for the long haul. And even
though we aren't officially on IFC,
we will still attend all of the meet-

"The city of Greenville is cur-

Changes implemented at WZMB
Word has come down to The East Caro-
linian that ECU'S radio station, WZMB, is in
a state of transition. The station is attempt-
ing to increase student lister ership by play-
ing music that has a more mainstream sound
between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
However, faithful alternative listeners
should not fear. In its quest for mass appeal,
WZMB does not plan to compromise its
alternative motif for 24- hour polka music
or the like. To achieve the latter, the station
will not have to go outside their present
music library, and they insist that up-and-
coming bands would not lose airtime.
The focus of the change will be on the
"sound The intention is to maintain its
monopoly on tunes that are on the cutting
edge of the music industry and are infre-
quently, or never, played on the other more
listened to stations, while catering to a
broader audience.
As the letters to the editor in today's
paper confirm, changes thus far have earned
kudos as well as criticism. The writers and
staff here atTEC reflect the lack of consen-
sus concerning changes. While some applaud
a new approach to the programming, others
are apprehensive about any alteration whatso-
ever, lest it risk losing its alternative attributes.
Readers who wish to consider an argument
against the changes should read the "Drop in
the Bucket" addressing this issue.
The powers at will were compelled to
ponder modification after a recent survey of
students yielded some interesting results. The
report showed that among the 17 most listened
to radion stations in the area, WZMB ranked as
the fourth favorite.
Analysis discovered that the number one
reason some disliked WZMB was because of
their music selection. Continuing, they found
that students hoped to hear reggae, classic
rock, rap and rhythm and blues more often.
Ostensibly, WZMB is here to serve the
student population. The results from the sur-
vey would certainly warrant their decisions;
however, the station's and many students fears
lie in the possibility that alteration may dimin-
ish WZMB's alternative appeal.
Misguided charity hurts America
by Brian Hall
On one of those ubiqui-
tousnetwork news magazines
last week, there was an inter-
esting story which pointed
out, more effectively than any-
thing I had ever seen, all that
is wrong with the welfare sys-
tem in America.
It focused on a new pro-
gram which, like all such gov-
ernment initiatives, began
with the purest of motives. In
this case, the idea was to give
financial support to parents
of disabled children.
The problem, as al-
ways, came not in the con-
ception but in the implemen-
First, the definition of
disabled was so broad and
vague that nearly anyone
could qualify. Second, some
parents fraudulently using
the money for such things
as gambling, alcohol and
drugs. Last, the inevitable
bureaucracy associated with
such a program ate up much
of the money.
One single mother re-
ceives $2,700 per month for
her six children. This means
that her income for doing
nothing other man producing
six children was nearly three
times the average of her area
(eastern Arkansas). Indeed,
her annual income, tax-free,
of $32,400 put her near the top
of the social structure in east
- Obviously, since the pro-
gram is only about two years
old, this woman did not have
these six children to take ad-
vantage of this program. She
is, however, being rewarded
with a new car and new house,
among other purchases that
she has made, for what can
only be termed irresponsible
'With this as an intro-
duction, I think that we should
face some facts about poverty in
this country. Most people clas-
sified as "poor" in this country
have standards of living which
would be envied nearly any-
where else on earth.
For example, a recent study
of the poor by the Heritage Foun-
dation discovered the following
facts. Nearly 40 percent of the
poor own their own home,
which is worth an average of
about $47,000. More than
700,000 individuals classified as
"poor" by the government own
"Our country has nearly
ruined itself financially
over the past 30 years as
it has tried to solve the
poverty problem by
mroiving money at it
a home worth more than
$100,000. More than 60 percent
of the poor have a car, air condi-
tioning and a microwave.
Fifteen percent of the poor
own two or more cars. More-
over, "poor" Americans live in
larger homes, eat more meat and
are more likely to own not only
cars but "luxury" items such as
dishwashers than the general
population of Western Europe.
In other words, if you are
"poor" in America, you are in
many ways better off materially
than the middle class of West-
ern Europe, to say nothing of
the Third World.
This does not mean that
being poor in America is an en-
viable lifestyle. Many of the
worst problems that the poor
face everyday, however, are self-
inflicted, by which I mean that
either they are a result of volun-
Self-expression important to humanity
As a member of society, and
one who is genuinely concerned
for the welfare of his fellow hu-
man beings, I am compelled to
speak on behalf of its betterment.
While it would be easier to simply
divorce myself from the world sur-
rounding me, I cannot in good
conscience be deaf to society's
pleas nor mute when self-expres-
sion demands a voice. When frus-
tration and alienation creep upon
me, I am forced t recall John
Donne's words: "No man is an
island, entire of itself
I am considered by a num-
ber of people to be a difficult and
ultra critical individual. This label
is certainly justified, but I am of-
ten saddened by the fact that
people fail to realize my so-called
nature does not arise from mali-
cious intent, but rather from a fer-
vent desire to initiate change.
Sometimes my impulses become
so strong that 1 forget to exercise
patience-mea culpa.
This is not intended as a per-
tary behavior (e.g. teen-aged
parenthood, drugs, sexually
transmitted diseases) or are
foisted upon them by members
of their own class (e.g. crime,
violence, disruptive schools).
Before you think that I am
speaking in code, meaning
black when I say poor, let me
also point out that most poor
people and most people who
are on welfare in this country
are white.
Indeed, most of the social
spending which is bankrupt-
ing our country is not even
spent on the poor. It is
middle-class entitlements,
such as crop supports, col-
lege aid and social security
which needs to be cut if we
are to get a handle on our

nearly $5 trillion national
debt and an all-time-high av-
erage cumulative tax rate

�J itself financially over the past
30 years as it has tried to solve
the poverty problem by throw-
ing money at it.
What is needed is a new
attitude toward poverty. Gen-
erosity does not consist of tak-
ing tax money from the middle
class and distributing it to the
True charity requires vol-
untary involvement, both fi-
nancial and physical, on the
part of the donor, as well as a
sense of responsibility on the
part of the recipient. Programs
such as Habitat for Humanity
and local church outreach pro-
grams can do more to help alle-
viate the pains of poverty more
than any federal give-away.
Until we learn that lesson, the

while we ease our consciences

ment extracts from us.
sonal condemnation or a chance
for self-pity. I am making these
statements to show my readers
mat I am not infallible, and like-
wise, I am not expecting them to
be either. Theonly expectation that
I hold for my readers is that they
consider my point of view.
Everyone has a point of v iew
which should be expressed, re-
gardless of whether or not it is a
popular one. To stifle oneself out
of trepidation or because of ridi-

I long for a world where the
value of love will be measured by a
child's happy smile or a husband
and wife's fidelity, and not by im-

Finally, I long for a world
where peace will be a responsibil-
ity, not a hypothetical supposition,
and where it shall supersede the
ephemeral and meaningless amass-
ing of wealth and position.
Call me naive or quixotic if
you will, but despite the seemingly
unreasonable aspirations I have
expressed, I shall continue to battle
the windmills that are propelled
by injustice, avarice and prejudice.
To those detractors who stand and
ridicule the Don Quixotes of mis

day is forthcomingwhen the wind-
mills will discontinue grinding
your fortunes, and chivalrous acts
shall be your sole reward.
Letters to the Editor-
To the Editor:
I am not sure if you are the person I
should be writing this to, but because I
don't know how to get word to anyone at
the campus radio station, I figured that
this would probably be the best route.
I would just like to extend my
congratulations to who ever it is over
there at WZMB that has finally made
some changes for the better. For once, I
can sit through an hour or two of steady
listening without feeling the need to get
up and change to another station. I even
made 91.3 one of my preset stations in my
car! It is not just me who has noticed the
changes made sic 1 would like to point
out. Many of my friends have also said
that they've noticed a "drastic change"
To the editor:
In his review of "Li' Abner" , Brian Hall
commented on the overbearing political
references against President Clinton. I agree with
him. As a registered Democrat and a proud
Generation X'er, I was saddened and appalled
that such a vibrant and well-acted musical was
bogged down by distasteful and unoriginal
Clinton bashing slurs. I am a firm believer in the
First Amendment, but when are we as Americans
going to draw the line between freedom of speech
and being politically offensive?
The fact that "Li'l Abner" is a "family
musical" made the commentseven harder to
swallow. Sitting beside two small children and
watching their faces as the President of the United
States was constantly slammed, I crouched lower
over the past couple of months.
I've also noticed that they've been giving stuff
away on a regular basis. This is also something
new to us on campus. Now we don't have to wait
until November (I think it's something like
Christmas in November that they did the past two
years?) or until they are in front of the student
store before we can get our hands on some of the
freebies they have to offer. I think it's things like
that that make people want to listen. And now
you're playing music that is tolerable! HOORAY!
Maybe you could pass on the word that
they're doing a great job over there for me? I'd
really appreciate it. Hear's listening to you.
Wendy Fischer
and lower into my seat. Often times in theater it is
hard to distinguish the difference between
expressing and condoning a way of life. In the
hilarious scene where Daisy Mae is singing how
Li'l Abner needs a wife to clean and cook for him,
we can laugh because, as sexist as that sounds, the
author is expressing a parody of that time period.
Although it is "cool" or "very 90's" to throw in
offensive remarks against the President, that has
nothing to do with the musical.
Alas, ECU'S reputation is growing everday,
and it sure would be sad to label our school as an
institution where political differences are not
welcome and being offensive is the only way to get
our point across.

The East Carolinian7
The East Carolinian
Raw, meaty acting marks Pulp Fiction
Gregory Dickens
General Manager
With Reservoir Dogs, director and
screenwriterQuentinTarantino re-
gurgitated the culmination of the
cinematic influences that this self-
professed "filmgeek"hasdigested
all his life. A riot of violence and
swagger, Dogs bulleted out of the
blue awash in the film noir style;
bad, heat-packing men with elo-
quently vulgar dialogue walk in
tension reminiscent of Chandler
and Elmore�Tarantino's admit-
ted literary icons�mixed with
quick-cut editing and outrageously
choreographed action that recalls
Asian action flicks such as those of
John Woo (Hani Boiled, Hard Tat-
get) and the work of Brain DePalma
(Bloiv Out, Vie Untouchables, Dressed
To Kill).
His later scripts (the similarly
themed True Romance and Natural
Born Killers) were filmed by others
and so lacked the director-based
elements that can add so much to
Tarantino's words. Tony Scott's
gloss obscured the razor humor
and Oliver Stone reworked Killer's
script so much Tarantino would
only take credit for the original
concept. The movies, while surely
entertaining, just don't pack the
power of work when Tarantino's
behind the wheel. With Pulp Fic-
tion, the 31-year-old is confidently
steering the most realized work of
recent cinema.
Clocking in at two and a half
hours and peopled by 13 supremely-
talented actors, Fiction is a gregari-
ous monster of a movie. Again,
Tarantino is in the Los Angeles
gangland for three carefully con-
nected stories spliced together out
of chronological order, producing
an amazing stream of rising action
and climax for each story and the
movie as a whole. "The Bonnie Situ-
ation" bookends Fiction and intro-
duces hitmen Vincent Vega and Jules
Winnfield (John Travolta and
Samuel J. Jackson) who are sent to
retrieve a suitcase owned by their
boss, Marsellus Wallace (Ving
Rhames, little seen but powerful).
The two are the film's central char-
acters and make up the best connec-
tion to Resenvir Dogs, sporting the
too-cool black suits and skinny ties
that mark Tarantino's hoods, who
also make up both film's protago-
Vega and Winnfield talk con-
stantly on as varied a range of topics
as two people can discuss. The subtle
meanings of foot massages, the pros
and cons of pigs, European versions
of fast food and drug policies, the
criteria and reactions to divine inter-
vention; everything is fully debated
in well pursued logic and a hilarious
abundance of obscenity. And this
man knows how to make a charac-
ter to keep up with. Using individual
perspectives on mundane topics,
Tarantino lets the characters form
themselves to the audience with idi-
oms and ethics without taking up
time withburdensome histories and
personal flashbacks that are over-
used these days to try to convince
audiences to like a character. We
like Tarantino's characters because
they're as human as we and would
have to do quite a lot for us to truly
despise them, which is why hitmen,
murderers, crooks and brutes suc-
cessfully make up his protagonists
and carry their respective movies
(Misters Pink, White, Blonde and
Brown, Mickey and Mallory, Vega,
Wallace, etc.).
"The Bonnie Situation makes
room for "Vincent and the Mobster's
Wife in which Vega, after scoring
some heroin from Lance and his
multi-pierced wife(EricStoltz, look-
ing for all the world HkeJesusChrist,
and Rosanna Arquette) is ordered
to take out Wallace's cocaine-loving
wife, Mia (the al-
ways yummy Uma
Thurman in an an-
noying black wig).
Arriving at Jack
shrine to '50s cin-
ema that doubles
as a restaurant and
soda shop, the two
enter a twist con-
test thanks to Mia's
arm-twisting and,
sureenough, spark
an interest in each
other (Reservoir Dogs fans,
sharp for Steve Buscemi).
What happens next is the second
grace Tarantino can bestow on an
audience. His ability to tell a story is
stunning. Because he molds charac-
ters so well and in such a subtle way,
what happens to them is sincerely
affecting and can be as tense and
harrowing, or as enlightening and
drop-dead funny, as is possible from
thousand-page novels. Also,
Tarantino makes us buy it.
"TheGold Watch which begins
with a classic monologue by Chris-
topher Walken, is of Butch Coolidge
(Bruce Willis), a paid-off boxer who
doesn't take a dive and has to run
from Wallace and his hitmen. Al-
most out of town with his girl
Fabienne (Maria De Medeiros),
Butch has to go back to his sure-to-
be staked-out apartment to retrieve
the gold watch that belonged to
generations of Cool idge men. What
follows is prime Tarantino�blood,
dizzying camera work and bizarre
people doing atrocious acts only to
be dealt with by righteously venge-
ful men whocrackle and seethe with
violence and a need for control.
"TheGold Watch"
Tarantino's work
with the crime genre
and shows off how he
can shrewdly use
character actions as al-
legories and means of
subconscious explica-
tion. Butch, trying to
find a suitable dam-
aging weapon, and
having already used
an uzi and a car to kill
people, goes instantly
for a hammer and then a bat (what
else for a boxer to use but bludgeon-
ing objects?) then wickedly pon-
ders a small, brutal chainsaw only
to hit an epiphany and decide on a
Japanese sword for clean, sharp and
quick violence.
It shows Butch isn't looking to be
messy and garish, but wants to hurt
somebody badly and do it with as
little effort necessary. It also reveals
an enlightening of Butch in the way
he can direct the violence he dishes
out. A boxer discovers the theories
of the "sweet science It's a small,
perfect gesture, and it shows
Tarantino's attention to detail and
the credit he gives his audience to
soak in the brush strokes of his art.
Returning to "The Bonnie Situa
tion Tarantino gives us all the ele-
ments introduced before to the pas-
tel pot holder world of suburbia in a
screamingly funny attemptby Vega
and Winnfield to ask for help (from
Tarantino himself and Harvey Keitel
as a meticulous mob specialist) to
clean up an accidental murder. Af-
terward, the two go for breakfast at
a diner targeted by twocrooks intro-
duced before the film's first credits.
Already stealing scene after scene,
Samuel Jackson dominates the last
half hour of Fiction, dealing with
and using the conscience that is
creeping up in i lim over the hit done
in the film's first 15 minutes.
It's riveting and just as surpris-
ing as Willis's performance, which
shows a true accessibility that has
been dampened by "Moonlighting"
and the Die Hard films. Seeing Willis,
who always has a retort and a stub-
born smirk, eat his pride while be-
ing paid off is revelatory. Much ado
has been made of Travolta's come-
back, and he deserves it, I admit, but
watch Jackson and Willis in two
rums that hopefully won't prove to
be their last such efforts.
Pulp Fiction is a big movie. Don't
expect the play-like atmosphere of
Dogs; Fiction is bigger in scope and
reach. There is simply no true gripe
with this film. It stays squarely in its
own world without trying to ensure
greater audiences by overexpand-
ing its genre or weakening the ef-
fects of the story and characters. It is
solid, top-notch filmmaking and an
instant classic. As completely satis-
fying as any film this decade, it's a
monument to Tarantino's influences
and the continuation of his influ-
ence on modern cinema.

The American String Quartet,

performing ensembles in the world.
With their roots firmly nourished at
Julliard, this ensemble has taken the

Why go to a '60s, '70s or '80s party
when you live in the '90s, In the year
2000 will we be going to '90s theme
parties that play Nirvana and have a
specially padded room forslamdanc-
ing? Man, I really hope not. This
Saturday night there was a '90s party,
of sorts, in that bastion of '90s ethics
and style, O' Rockefellers. Sans Sobri-
ety and Shwa brought the entertain-
Sans Sobriety is a three piece band
from Greensboro who opened the
show to a swelling crowd. Their
sound is a healthy mixture of high
speed punk with a crunching bit of
metal riffs thrown in for good mea-
sure. They are very hard and very
abrasive. Oh, and by the way, their
drummerplayslikea man possessed.
I couldn't tell you what one of
their songs is about; O'Rock's acous-
tics won't allow it. But I can say that
they like to go through many tempo
changes and love to improvise. The
improvising thing is rare in a band of
this type. Their noise is cathartic and
you can tell they have a blast playing
it. By the end of their set there were
bodies whirling around and a few
launching off the stage railing to be
carried over the heads of the crowd
and out into oblivion.
The main attraction was
Greenville's own Shwa. This is sup-
posedly their one and only reunion
show after their breakup abouta year
ago. Personally I'd like to see moreof
them, but I don't think that will hap-
Shwa is heavy metal, thrash-punk,
funk and rap all wound up in this
whirling cloud of�dust with arms,
legs, drumsticks and microphones
sticking out of it. They are an unor-
thodox five piece with two lead vo-
cals, bass, guitar and drums. The
place was completely packed when
they took the stage. Many people
had come out just to see them.
Their sound is based on a driving
rhythm; however, the rhythm is bor-
rowed from many different styles. In
one song they can go from a speed
metal stomp to a chorus of slow
funk and back again. The two lead
vocals trade off with one doing
most of the singing (the dude in the
lounge lizard tux) and one doing
most of the rap (the guy with the
blue bandanna on his sweaty aard-
vark-like head). After a few min-
utes of their sonic assault a large pit
had been stirred up, and once again,
bodies were being thrown about,
except at a higher velocity.
His reallyagreatthingto see this
generation of downtrodden, na-
tional debt inheriting, latchkey kids
having, a ball with something that
is uniquely its own, a venting rage
where no one gets hurt. Shwa
played a hefty set and everyone
seemed to be satisfied and sweaty.
Sans Sobriety is excellent, maybe
they will come back. Shwa is great
fun as well, but we probably won't
see them anymore. This is your
traveling downtown not-so-alter-
native reporter signing off. See you
next show.

The Plot Thickens
"All boundaries cease to exist,
it wasn't black music or white
music, it was just music declared
Galliano's front man Rob
Gallegher. The only way to de-
scribe Galliano's third album, The
Plot Thickens, is to say that there
are in fact no boundaries. Galliano
is not limited to one type of music
and because of this nothing holds
back their ability to create a musi-
cal masterpiece.
Great Britain-based Galliano
offers a wide variety of musical
identity. Some refer to their type
of music as "Acid Jazz" which is
an easy way to say it is jazz with an
attitude. Their debut album, In
Pursuit of the 13th Note, proved to
be nothing less than poetically
groundbreaking. Galliano keeps
with the tradition on their latest,
The Plot Thickens. The musical pre-
occupations on this album stem
from hours together on the tour
bus and a new-found listening
style of music outside the soul and
funk areas.
Due to excellent production,
this album flows beautifully as if
it were only one song. It has a very
tribal sound, with an English twist
making it very mesmerizing. Rob
Gallegher, main writer, guitarist
and vocalist, was inspired by
David Crosby and covered "Long
Time Gone An original attribute
to the song was that Gallegher
added additional lyrics to better
fit the rest of the album. This song
took on a new twist with a funky
bassline and a smooth hip-hop lyric
Galliano is a very worldly band
and they incorporate their views
about the changing times of the
earth on the fourth song, "Twyford
Down Twyford Down is the
legendary resting place of King
Arthur and is supposedly one of
the more beautiful locations of
England. This song turned out to
be my favorite on the disk because
of the mixture of vocals and music.
Both went together with such me-
lodic perfection it gave me goose
bumps. The song has almost a nos-
talgic tone to it while it discusses
the way times have changed and
not even Twyford Down is safe
from the destructive ways of the
modern world. Rob Gallegher's
poetic style of writing lyrics works
well with the rest of the band and
this song shows that very well.
Another one of the more out-
standing songs was the next to last
track, titled "Better All the Time
Almost a ballad, this song is very
upbeat and leaves a happy feeling
after listening. If a band can evoke
an emotion in me, I tend to want to
listen to them again. Gallianodefi-
nitely stirred an emotion with this
song, and it made me feel better.
The message the song puts across
is that no matter how bad it gets,
everything will always get better
with time.
If this sounds like something
you would be interested in listen-
ing to, go out and get it. If not, go
out and get it anyway because you
will not be disappointed. Galliano
has created a wonderful example
of good music. Their originality is
evident throughout the album and
the even flow of good music re-
mains constant. Galliano has
proved to be the forerunner for
the "Acid Jazz" movement and
have a large following in Europe.
Perhaps it is time for America to
experience Galliano.
A Drop
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
"A Drop in the Bucket" is just
what it claims to be: a very tiny drop
in the great screaming bucket of
American media opinion. Take it as
iou ivill.
There's been a lot of talk in
this column lately about what is
ject has been discussed at great
length, and I'm sure many of
you out there are sick to death of
hearing about it. Well, grab those
vomit bags, kids, because here
we go again.
This time, though, I'm out for
blood. WZMB, our campus ra-
dio station, was subjected to an
official format change, voted
through by the Media Board last
week. The station will now play
"commercial" alternative (con-
tradiction in terms there) from 6
a.m. to 6 p.m and "regular"
(some would say "real") alter-
native from6p.m.to6a.m. There
are reasons for this change, and
you can get a positiyS Reaction to
those reasons in oui Jnasthead
editorial on the opinion page. I,
however, am here to snarl.
I won't go too deeply into
WZMB's so-called grant an-
nouncements that sound like
full-blown commercials, even
though I'm told that they make
a mockery of FCC law concern-
ing noncommercial radio. They
stop just short of mentioning
price, and so are apparently
within the boundsfaftwmmuni-
cationslaw (howeverlnuch they
may teeter on the edge). They do
make the station less pleasant to
listen to and occasionally make
me put in a CD, but I suppose
that's the price of progress.
But I'm not here to talk about
that. The twisting of the non-
commercial radio format is an-
other topic entirely. No, I want
to talk about the format change
itself. This change was pushed
through by the station's new
management in a flurry of resig-
nations and the firing of many of
WZMB's longest-standing staff
members. Those trying to
smooth over the anger and con-
troversy are saying that this
change won't really cause that
muchofadifferencein WZMB's
I beg to differ. There's already
a difference. Anyone who actu-
ally listened to the station last
year or over the summer, any-
one who really knows and loves
alternative music, has definitely
noticed. In an effort to play more
commercial music, WZMB will
be moving more towards MTV's
notion of what alternative mu-
sic is. But MTV is drtly looking
for the next Nirvana, the next
Nine Inch Nails, the, next (God
forbid) Stone Templepilots (who
were, of course, the next Pearl
Jam, who were, come to think of
it, the next Nirvana). They want
copies of copies of copies. They
want to play the same five songs,
all of which are copies of one or

hearing at night is what's been

semester, and VVZMB has been
phasing out the real underground

ing to the station or just stopped

On a more positive note, I must
admit that the station has become a
bit mi irelistenable in the last couple
of weeks. It's a great improvement
ivor the beginning of the semester,
when I was slapping in CDs left
and right rather than listening to
the crap VVZMB was cranking out.
But the fans of underground
music are still not being serviced in
Greenville. The format change,
which is being lauded as an effort
to appeal to everyone, old and new
fans alike, is a failure. The station
doesn't seem to be expanding its
listener base so much as it's chang-
ing it. Most of the people who didn't
like the station before won't like it
now, and the fans VVZMB has
turned its back on have abandoned

probably lead to higher CD sales

"I would like to get him the
ball more but there are only so
many snaps in a football game,
and we do throw the ball a lot

Logan has also said that
McPhail doesn't have the
hands to be a wide receiver or
return punts.
"He must have dropped 20
or more passes last year
Logan said. "He can not re-
turn punts. That just isn't one

4 touchdowns. Last season, he
scored the game-winning
touchdown against Louisiana

While Coach Logan and his
Pirates (3-3) look to avenge
their 27-20 defeat at the hands
of Virginia Tech last Saturday,
Tulsa's Golden Hurricane (2-
4) are coming off of a huge 44-
22 thrashing of UNLV's
Runnin' Rebels, breaking a
four-game losing streak.
"I assure you they plan on
winning this game Logan
said. "We are their homecom-
ing, which is an indication on
how they are going to look at
this game. ECU has never
beaten Tulsa in a football game.
We will have to play the game
of our lives
Both Coach Logan and of-
fensive coordinator Todd
Berry are Tulsa alumnus, as
well as former assistants for
the Hurricane. In the inaugu-
ral ECU-Tulsa matchup in
1984, both Berry and Logan
were Hurricane assistant
TU piled up 452 total yards
of offense against the Rebs, but
just 101 in the air. This inabil-
ity to pass should play right
into the hands of the ECU de-
fense. However, the Hurricane
amassed a season-high 351
rushing yards, and their
ground attack will be strongly
tested by the Pirate defenders.
Assistant Sports Editor
On the surface, ECU's 27-20
loss to Virginia Tech Saturday at
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium could be
viewed as a game in which the
Pirates stayed close to a nation-
ally ranked football team. Look
into the heart of the matter, how-
ever, and you find that ECU
should have won the matchup
against the 19th-ranked Hokies.
"I think you saw a really good
college football game between
two good college institutions and
football programs Logan said.
"Thev beat us. There were oo-
portunities for both of us to win
the game, but we just came up a
little bit short
The game, on paper, was about
as even as you can get. Both teams
showcased their quarterbacks
who although might seem simi-
lar in one light, but are quite dif-
ferent in others.
Maurice DeShazo (14-27, 198
yards), the senior Hokie quarter-
back, was given the luxury of
time in the pocket while leading
the VT offense to the victory. His
experience in the shotgun forma-
tion was evident early and seen
often throughout the game.
Pirate Report Card
See TULSA page 12
ECU's Marcus Crandell (30-
50,332 yards, 2 touchdowns), put
up better numbers than DeShao,
although he lacks the years of
experience that DeShazo pos-
sesses as a college quarterback.
"I wouldn't trade Marcus for
anybodv in the country Logan
said. "He's played in six or seven
games now. His defining moment
is still yet to come. At some point
he's going to win a game late for
you. He made some mistakes, but
he's progressing well
After receiving the open kick-
off, ECU marched down the field
with authority. However, the
drive was killed when a Tech blitz
stormed through the Pirate of-
fense line at the 27-yard line, and
the audible that Crandell and Jun-
ior Smith (17 carries for 64 yards,
five catches for 41 yards receiv-
ing) had planned crumbled.
The ball was fumbled and re-
covered by Tech defensive end
Lawrence Lewis, who rambled
60 vards for a touchdown. Hokie
kicker Ryan Williams missed the
PAT, leaving the score 6-0 with
12:09 left to play in the first quar-
Later on in the quarter, the
Pirates would execute an eight-
play, 67-yard drive that was cul-
minated with a one-yard Damon

Nichols won the Coca-Cola

This kind of versatility and 4.48

of recruiting attention for Nichols.

a lot of schools to choose from

of them wanted me for defensive
