Over the years. ECU'S annual soror-

week of August, just before fall classes
begin. This year, things are going to be
Two weeks ago. a 7-1 vote was
passed to move the rush week back to
the second week in September, in an at-
tempt to draw a higher female turnout
"It's on a trial basis because we are
currently the only school in North Caro-

Panhellenic President Janet Stubbs.
Panhellenic is the governing body of all
eight ECU sororities and is comprised of
individual sorority representatives and an
Several factors were taken into con-
sideration before the move became final.
The benefits of having rush before school
starts include less traffic on the roads,
more time for rushees to meet with the
sisters and the sororities believe they
have more time to prepare for rush week.
But there are more advantages to
moving the rush than not Having the
events in September ensures more time
to boost publicity and send mailings to
the girls during the summer. The change
also allows for summer jobs to not be
disturbed and for information to reach
new transfer students. But perhaps the
most important reason is because it will
be more beneficial as a whole to the
"It's also more convenient to have
rush in the fall and people do what's more
convenient for them said Stubbs.
The Alpha Phi sorority was the one
sorority who voted against the move.
"Alpha Phi chose to vote against
deferred rush because we felt that pre-
school rush offers a better chance to meet
and talk with the girls more than deferred
rush would said Nan Patterson, Alpha
"We felt that the problem (of low
numbers) was in the advertising of rush.
The numbers could be greater if more
information was sent to incoming fresh-
men, before they arrive, and who are plan-
ning to go through rush in the fall
But this is not the first ECU has
had a deferred rush. "Back in the 80s.
we used to rush during the fall, but even-
tually those numbers dropped so they
thought they would be more successful
by having a pre-school rush said Stubbs.
The Panhellenic Council bases its
numbers on quotas. As of now, the tar-
get number quota is set at 65 girls, for
each sorority. When sororities do reach
their quotas, they then usually hold an
informal, open rush at a later time in the

part of what they consider positive
peace education. These four visions
are Appreciation of the variety of a
person's capabilities and social di-
versity in miniature; unity of the
family and nation in miniature; unity
of the American nation and of the
world in miniature; and unity of our
planet and of interplanetary peace

"The response is also that students
will still have access to the pro-

It started with ECU's 1991 Peach Bowl-winning head
football coach Bill Lewis, who moved on to Georgia Tech
and fell flat on his face with the Yellow Jackets.
Larry Coyer, who came to ECU as the Pirates defensive
coordinator, fled after one season to take a position with
the New York Jets. Boy, did they have a horrible season.
Chuck Pagano, a Pirate assistant football coach, turned
his ECU coaching success into a job with Butch Davis at
the University of Miami (Fla.) after the 1994 season.
Dave Hart, regarded by all as one of the finest athletic
directors in the nation, recently moved to the ACC and
Florida State after, well, basically building the East Carolina
athletic program from the ground up.
Hart had, in the past, turned down other athletic
director offers, most notably from Pitt and Maryland, citing
a need to place East Carolina in either a football or an all-
sport athletic conference. We're still independent.
Now our esteemed Chancellor Richard Eakin is one of
four finalists for the presidency at the University of
Louisville. He has already visited for his second interview.
Eakin was rumored to be looking at other schools'

What is it about East Carolina and the people that run
the school? Is ECU becoming a stepping stone between
small colleges and larger universities? If so, then we as a
university-need to start finalizing plans (i.e. renovations
and expansions of university property) that will come to
fruition in a much more rapid time period, because every
time that there will be an upper-level administrative
personnel change, new personal and university-level
philosophies, goals and priorities will come with it.
Or is being employed by the school a damnation that
is secretly regarded as "hell on earth" by all employees,
who can't wait to jump ship?
Whatever the reason may be for the mass exodus from
Greenville (all the folks who can't drive?), we as a university
need to come to grips with the trend and react accordingly,

in our recent history, environmental
concerns at times have needlessly
trampled over individual property

by all parties involved.
While seeking a reasonable solu-
tion to the debate that pits environ-
mental concerns against citizens'
property rights, House Resolution No.
925 - Private Property Protection Act
was recently passed by Congress:
"H.R. 925 requires the federal
government to compensate an owner
of property whose use of that prop-
erty has been limited by a federal
agency action that diminishes its value
by 10 percent or more. The agency
that imposed the limitation must make
any payments out of its annual appro-
priation, and may freely transfer funds
for that purpose H. R. 925 will not
affect state or local zoning ordinances
nor will it endanger public health and
safety goals. Legislation that is long

Lest we forget, this latest salvo
in the battle against tyrannical land
grabbers is not the first. Way back in
the early 1700s, when the Brits held
sway over our land, the Parliament
banned citizens in some colonies from
destroying material vital to their ship-
ping industry: white pine trees. In
1730, colonists in Maine reported that
the British agents "came with an
armed force, turned them from their
lands, seized their timber, bumed and
destroyed their houses and "even
threatened to throw them into con-
finement" for disobeying the pine

Surely the pine tree incident
came to mind when the Founding
.Fathers penned the Fifth Amendment
to the Bill of Rights, a portion of
which reads: "Nor shall any personbe
deprived of life, liberty, or property,
without due process of law; nor shall
private property be taken for public
use without just compensation
Now we find, over 200 years later,
instead of British governmental
agents, many Americans are being ter-
rorized by bureaucrats from the EPA.
And so, in the name of environmen-
talism, an ignoble facet of history is
being repeated. Arbitrary confiscation
of private property by government

There exists a myriad of issues
in the environmental debate, but per-
haps the most notorious is the wet-
lands controversy. Recognizing the
importance of wetlands, President
Bush declared that they would be pre-
served under his presidency. A presi-
dential nod of approval permitted the
EPA and the Army Corp of Engineers
to secretly expand the definition of
what constitutes a wetland in 1988.

ing, Robert J. Pierce, conceded that
the term "wetland has no meaning:
natural systems exist on a hydrologic
gradient from ocean to desert Some-
where in the middle are what society
calls wetlands. For regulatory pur-
poses, a wetland is whatever we de-
cide it is. The type of natural systems
that have been defined as wetlands
has changed virtually every year for
the last decade
In essence, the EPA has been
given carte blanche to wantonly en-
force its brand of environmental jus-
tice at the expense of individual prop-
erty rights. With the definition of
"wetland" constantly changing, obey-
ing the law is nearly impossible. Ameri-

In 1988, after obtaining over 30
different government permits and
gaining the assurance from the Army
Corps of Engineers that his property
was not a wetland, Bill Ellen - a ma-
rine engineer - began to build a wild-
life sanctuary for ducks. By Feb. 1989,
however, the definition of wetland
changed. When notified by the Envi-
ronmental Police, Ellen stopped con-
struction within 48 hours. But that
would not suffice. Ellen was sent to
prison and his duck ponds dynamited.
This is one $f many inexcusable ex-
amples; they exist ad infinitum.

will restore some meaning to the Fifth
Amendment and hopefully preclude
future miscarriages of justice. By plac-
ing monetary restraints on federal
agencies, H.R. 925 will hopeful re-

It is rare that republicans and
democrats agree on much of any-
thing. However, in the quest for re-
duced spending the new Republican
State House has found an item Jim
Hunt agrees with them on. Both
Hunt and the republicans want to
give large tax breaks. Although they
haven't agreed whom the cuts should
go to, they have agreed who will pay
for a large part of them: college stu-
dents and their families.
The price of higher education
has risen dramatically over the past
decade. The American Council on
Education shows the average tuition
at public schools increased from 3.8
percent to 4.8 percent of median fam-
ily income between 1980 and 1987.
By the early '90s it was over five per-
cent While the price of a college edu-
cation has risen across the board,
public universities have chalked up
the steepest price hikes.
The Governor and General As-
sembly talk about "a modest tuition
increase" of around five percent.
They even say this with a straight
face. They talk about how they are
only increasing the cost "a little bit
They ignore that "a little bit" each
year adds up to "a lot" over a period
of time. They also ignore the source
of the steepest increases in educa-
tional costs: student fees.
Kevin Phillips discusses the de-
cline of middle class prosperity in his
book Boiling Point. He cites three
things that have pinched the middle
class: health care costs, insurance
fees and steep increases in the cost
of higher education. Middle class
vqters see prosperity becoming more
difficult to attain. It is no surprise
they have sent a resounding message
to Washington in two successive elec-
tions. It is important to realize that
Washington and Raleigh are not the
only source of problems for families
with students at ECU.
The Board of Trustees is also
preparing to raise student fees. In
their annual trip to the trough, the
trustees have proposed an increase
of $65. Last year they increased stu-
dent fees from $696 to $793 per se-
mester. In the 1992-93 school year
they increased fees by another $110.
Seventy dollars alone were allotted
to pay for a new student recreation
center. Another $40 was tacked on
to pay for renovations to Minges Coli-
seum. There seems to be an upward
spiral with no end in sight.
The past has taught students to
expect a weak SGA executive to cave
in to requests to raise student fees.
However, things appear to be chang-
ing. SGA President Ian Eastman was
able to whittle down the most recent
fee increase by $10. Now Eastman is
proposing a more radical approach
to student fee increases.
Eastman is proposing a non-
binding student referendum to either
approve or disapprove student fee in-
creases. He wants the student body
to go on record either for or against
future proposed student fees. "The
recent Pitt County Bond Referendum
gave me this idea he said. "If vot-
ers must approve money being bor-
rowed in their name, it only seems
logical that students should also have
The only dark cloud on
Eastman's parade is that the chan-
cellor can veto any legislation passed
by the Student Government Associa-
tion. However, Eastman hopes this
will not happen. He says he hopes
the chancellor will actually welcome
student input. Although he may not
welcome input as Eastman hopes, it
would at least force him to publicly
Students should pay close atten-
tion to this drama as it unfolds. It
would be comforting to have at least
some voice in future fee increases.
Students would have to vote. If they
didn't, they would have no one to
blame but themselves. If a project
enjoyed the support of the student
body it would likely pass. If it didn't,
the trustees would at least have the
opinion of the student body on
Students and their families have
some recourse when the politicians
in Raleigh raise tuition. They can
vote in the next election. It seems
only fair to solicit their opinions on
proposed fee increases. Our nation
was founded under the slogan, "No
taxation without representation It's
about time students have some in-
put into fees they are expected to pay.
To the Editor:
East Carolina University's Student
Government Association has experi-
enced a revolution of mammoth pro-
portions during the past school year.
SGA has become a highly vocal,
proactive voice of the student body.
President Ian Eastman campaigned on
change and he has delivered.
Student needs such as a 24 hour
study hall and three additional shuttle
buses to the Minges parking lot have
been provided at no additional cost to
students largely due to SGA efforts. Mr.
Eastman's administration should also
be highly applauded for their efforts
to cut the proposed student fee in-
crease which resulted in a $10 cut in
the total rate hike and an overall sav-
ings of $170,000 to the student body.
Mr. Eastman and the SGA cut their
own budget as well by eliminating two
executive board trips to Orlando,
Florida and Washington, DC. SGA is
also making it a practice to respond to
a broad spectrum of student requests
by funding the Fine Arts funding board
with $17,500, SGA's first contribution
since 1988. Most impressive is the tu-
ition repayment plan allowing students
to make monthly tuition payments that
will be implemented next year, once
again spearheaded by President
Eastman and the SGA.
Overall, this past year has been of
monumental importance to ECU with
many achievements that have en-
hanced our growing reputation. It is
very important to maintain a high level
of student involvement in all areas of
the university in order to facilitate fur-
ther success in the future; therefore, it
is integral that we re-elect President
Ian Eastman to remain at the helm of
the SGA as it continues to vastly im-
pact the well-being of the entire stu-

To the Editor:
The effects of the defeat of the Pitt
County school bond referendum are a
prime topic for continuing debate
among the involved parties, including
the ECU administration who hope to
salvagqithe sale of the Epps Middle
School property. But one thing can-
not be debated: the defeat of the bond
referendum virtually can be attributed
to one element - marketing.
Fritnds for Financial Responsibil-
ity, thehighly visible group who op-
posed the referendum's passage, ran a
highly organized, well planned and
flawlessly executed marketing cam-
paign. The group of mostly anonymous
citizens controlled public opinion and
mobilized voter turnout in a textbook
illustration of persuasion and manipu-
No one couid miss the trademark
red and black "Vote NO New Taxes"
placards placed on seemingly every
corner in town. This highly visible ef-
fort was complemented by a series of
newspaper ads in The Daily Reflector
which explained in carefully chosen
words the group's stand on passage of
the bond issue and the ad valorem
taxes it would generate. Ads which clev-
erly used bits and pieces of factual
material, much of it pulled from the
school board's own reports and publi-
cations, presented without detailed
explanation or surrounding context
Combine this printed material
with a highly visible, extremely articu-
late spokesperson (Tom Lamprecht)
who carefully orchestrated press con-
ferences and media appearances to ef-
fectively make his visage more recog-
nizable than most city officials and
school board personnel in the days
leading to the vote.
Where were the members of
theschool board or the Bond Steering
Committee, a group of patents and
business professionals who supported
passage of the referendum? They were
being reactive and playing catch-up.
They were on the defensive and scram-
bling to keep up.
This is best evidenced by the "Vote
Yes" signs which began appearing just
days before the polls opened. Perhaps
these signs would have appeared any-
way, but the image was that they were
merely a reaction to signs placed by
the FFR group. And as Andre Agassi
says, "Image is everything
And not only was the materializa-
tion of the signs suspect the physical
appearance of the signs detracted from
their effect because they were placed
in fewer locations than the opponent's
signs and were not as easy to read,
partially because they were printed on
a less rigid paper stock.
Students studying marketing, ad-
vertising, communication, political sci-
ence and similar fields can learn sev-
eral chapters worth of classic persua-
sion and manipulation theory and prac-
tice by examining the campaign orches-
trated by the bond opponents.
It was clearly a major reason be-
hind the defeat of the bond referen-

Carrot Top scores
with crass humor
crowd at Wright
He's crude. He's obnoxious. He
looks like a cross between Chelsea
Clinton and the Wendy's girl.
And he's the funniest comedian
I've seen in years.
Carrot Top's act is unusual, to say
the least. He mixes stand-up comedy
with a bizarre sort of show-and-tell -
a combo that results in uproarious
laughter from everyone who sees him.
But before I get into that, I'd like
to mention Carrot Top's opening act,
Charles Viracola. Charles' act was ab-
solutely hilarious. From drugs and
drug testing to the Paddock Club and
strip joints, Charles managed to touch
on just about everything that is im-
portant to college students, and ECU
The set for this show was awe-
some. Psychedelic is about the only
word that can really describe it. The
stage was covered in drapes designed
with vibrant colors, flowers and peace
symbols. And of course. Carrot Top's
famous trunks drew everyone's atten-
tion. But what really caught my eye
were the slide projections on the walls
of the auditorium. Two were of Car-
rot Top's logo, one was a sun and the
other was a spiral-like design. They
changed colors throughout the show
and were a really cool touch.
But above and beyond the set, the
best thing about Carrot Top's act is
Carrot Top himself. He's full of energy
and enthusiasm. He bounced all over
the stage. Many people have seen him
on TV, but let me just say this: If
you've only seen Carrot Top on tele-
vision, then you haven't really seen
Carrot Top. His live show is way dif-
First of all. he's explicit. If you're
easily offended, Carrot Top is probably
not the comic for you. But if you love
lewd jokes, sexual innuendoes and
crass humor (in other words, if you're
a typical college student), you'll love
Secondly, there's a good possibil-
ity that most of Carrot Top's act on -
Sunday was made up right then. In -
fact, he even said a few times, "I
should practice this stuff You might
think he was kidding, but I don't.
Carrot Top is one of those brilliant
comedians who is able to make up
funny material on the spur of the
moment. Take, for example, the two
people sitting next to the stage sign-
ing for the hearing impaired. Obvi-
ously this doesn't happen at all of his
shows, because Carrot Top was fasci-
nated by the fact that these two
people signed everything he said.
Throughout the show he tried to have
a conversation with them, but they
could only sign his exact words to the
audience. When he realized that they
couldn't answer him. he decided to
turn it into a joke.
"I find the guy on stage really
attractive he said. To the audience's
amusement, that's exactly what the

Enjoy a slice of New York in Greenville
Alfredo's offers good pizza at affordable prices
Photo by JACK SKINNER
The happy and efficient staff of Alfredo's
Pizza stands before their weiid mascot.
I have to admit that going into Alfredo's
New York Pizza, notepad in hand, I was a little
nervous. From the outside, the quaint pizza
parlor looks a little run-down, with a huge
painting of a three-armed, big-haired pizza
wielding alien chick wearing a tight "Pizza By
the Slice" dress looming in the window. To my
introverted eye. I may have gotten myself into
trouble. I went in and surveyed the menu. 1
was in the mood for a slice of pizza with every-
thing, but I decided to play it safe and opt for
plain cheese. I placed my order with an effi-
cient, if not curt, woman, and within minutes I
had a huge slice of hot pizza.
This piece was at least the size of the plate
it came on. if not a bit larger. Not only are the
slices huge, but it is some of the best pizza I
have ever had. The crust is thin, but not sever-
your-mouth-un-the-edges crispy. There are no
garlic butter additions either. The crust stands
well on its own. Alfredo's doesn't saturate the
delicious crust with lakes of sauce like many
pizza places tend to, either. A generous amount
of oregano and various other spices add zest
and flavor to the pizza. My only complaint is
about the amount of cheese. There is just not
quite enough to satisfy a cheese pizza lover.
The prices are as good as the pizza. A slice
of pizza only costs S1.35. and for 35 cents extra
you can add your choice of pepperoni. mush-
rooms, green peppers, onions. Canadian bacon,
sausage, olives or banana peppers. The whole
pizzas are extremely reasonable with a small for
$6. a medium for S7 and a large for S8. Beer is
fairly inexpensive as well. A bottle costs S1.50.
and a pitcher is $3. The atmosphere is relaxed,
and the restaurant small. There are only five
booths and a mirrored counter which, inciden-
tally, has no stools go figure! There is a juke-
box with everything from The Grateful Dead to
Hole. Alfredo's is the kind of place where every
one could get some terrific pizza and have a
good time. I will most certainly be back, and
next time I'm getting the works.

Circle of Dust
Circle of Dust
� -����. -��A. '� ��
Industrial music is the wave of
the future, which is sad if this is what
we have to expect from the music
scene. In an attempt to create a me-
chanical masterpiece, New York-based
Circle of Dust does very well at sound-
ing exactly like everyone else in that
genre. This self-titled album is their
second try at the same music that was
originally recorded on their first al-
Scott Albert, the only member of
Circle of Dust, was not satisfied with
the nature of the recording and de-
cided to rerecord their first release.
This album is considered to be
C.O.Ds first, and with good reason.
Brainchild was nothing more than 50
minutes of the same beats, songs and
monotony with no imagination or cre-
ativity in the music. However, on his
new release, Scott apparently had ac-
cess to a full-sized studio, as evidenced
by the elaborate samples and music
Circle of Dust tried very hard to
create a unique approach to an already
flooded market, they combined the
elements of industrial and dance mu-
sic with a great emphasis on guitar,
which makes for a sometimes aggres-
sive-sounding album. The only origi-
nal aspect this band tried to push was
in fact the emphasis on guitars, which
were never really the main instrument
used in industrial recordings.
This was most evident on the sec-
ond track, "Demoralize where the
guitar was thick and pounding over
robotic melodies that seemed to never
end. It was a good attempt, but the
guitars used on their album are not
even real. Most, if not all, of the mu-
sic is electronically based, including
Scott's voice, which most of the time
has some kind of strange effect on it.
After a while, this kind of fake music
gets really old: hearing the same drum
beats and guitar riffs repeated over
and over again made me want to turn
off the CD before it was finished.
Everything boils down to one
simple fact: Scott Albert is trving way
to hard to be something he's not TVt
is, he's trying to sound like Trent
Reznor. He sings like him: he tries to
recreate his music with a twist but it
is quite obvious when listening that
Circle of Dust is an NIN rip off! For a
more accurate description, they sound
like every other industrial band that
ever was (just fill in the blank). If C.O.D.
had come out with this a few years ago,
this album would be a pioneer for it's
time. I can understand the fact that it
is hard to be original these days, but
C.O.D. seems to have made no attempt
at originality. Therefore, before I even
listened to it, it was already old.
Circle of Dust was a good attempt
by a man who has some talent creat-
ing music. Due to the type of music
itself, it is hard to be original, and a lot
of C.O.D's music was very mundane
and boring because there was no origi-
nality. Looking past a few thiugs, uv.
album itself is. alright but nothing to
write home about. As for me, I would
much rather listen to NIN and 'je to-
sucks theme throughout: "Am I
shadow boxing? Banging my head
against the wall You dance with your
eyes closed and who was that fool I
caught you with?" Also, Simpkins'
voice is too choppy for this number.
If it could be compared to anything,
it would be David Bowie trying to
cover REM's song "Everybody Hurts
Not exactly a pleasant thought, is it?
The song "Saturday Night" is a
decent song about the underground
wanting to come out and take a breath
on a Saturday night. Is their town in
Virginia really that depressing? It
boasts a really good bassline. and
Simpkins' voice sounds much better
on this song. Drummer Kurt Adam
shows his ability on this song with
his fabulous drum fills. For the most
part, Adam is a very straightforward
drummer, and even though his drum
beat is very exposed in this song, he
doesn't sound as if he is trying to
Visible Shivers incorporates a
great deal of vocal harmonies in their
songs, but they sometimes have a
problem with the lyrics sounding
jumbled and less heartfelt. "Miles Left
To Ride" is one of many songs that
uses harmony, but this one was their
best attempt. The song is more of a
ballad and has this incredible triplet
pattern (it almost sounds like a waltz).
On this particular number, guitarist
and second vocalist Lee Worley takes
over the microphone. Vocally, Worley
has much more control and should
be singing on the majority of the
songs instead of just one or two.
This quartet is apparently a very
laid back group and shows this on
their song "Six Roads It also has a
very good drumbeat that fits perfectly
with the rambling bassline. This song
has an almost bluesy feel to it and
shows that the band does have some
skill at writing music.
The last song on the album.
"Flow was pretty good, but I would
not have chosen it as the last song on
the album. It didn't leave me with a
good lasting impression. It sounds like
an incorporation of all of their songs
into one. The song isn't horrible: it just
drags and sounds as if it was stuck on
the album to take up space.
Visible Shivers is a talented band
that uses no distortion or effects to
cover up their mistakes. They just need
to try a little harder next time to put
some variety into their songs. That
seems to be the great secret to good
albums these days.
If you are into straightforward folk
rock, Visible Shivers' Four Things is
probably an album you should check
out. They just didn't rock my world.
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
There are many bands surfacing
as of late that are returning to their
grass roots and giving us music about
their lifestyles, and Visible Shivers is
one of them. On their first CD release,
Four Things, Visible Shivers shows us
the monotony of their lives in Virginia
in many, if not all, of their songs. They
do deserve some credit though, be-
cause their songs are rather catchy
and would be great to listen to while
driving down old country roak past
tobacco fields and cow pastures.
"Crawl" is one of those songs that
is very simple and straight-forward
sounding. There are not a lot of drum
fills, guitar solos or screeching melo-
dies. It sounds a little like early REM
with a little bit of Dave Mathews
thrown in for good measure. There are
some good harmonies in this song,
but lead singer David Simpkins in a
way ruins the song because his voice
just doesn't fit.
"Shadow Boxing" is probably one
of my least favorite tracks off the al-
bum. The lyrics have your typical love

sic fears that can keep one awake
at night - a rabid dog, vampires, a
psychotic fan, the end of the world.
Finding a universal theme with
which to haunt the viewer's subcon-
scious seems to be an easy task
since a film need only rely on other
quality films for inspiration. Yet
many films. Hideaway and The
Mangier included, fail miserably to
find an unconscious fear and thus
defuse the horror in the film.
Horror films, more than other
genres, also need internal consis-
tency. This consistency generally
separates the average horror film
from the great one. Once conven-
tions have been agreed upon, the
filmmakers cannot deviate from
those conventions without compro-
mising the integrity of the story. A
pact gets established between
viewer and filmmakers that dare
not be broken by inconsistency. If
a viewer suspends disbelief to fully
accept the filmmakers' vision, then
the filmmakers must adhere to the
rules they have established.
Some films, like Hideaway and
The Mangier, do not even bother
to establish a plausible environ-
ment within the film. The filmmak-
ers carry out a story without a
sound explanation as to why the
occult events on screen could be
happening. In Hideaway, the lame
excuse to explain the connection
the main character has with a mur-
derer is that the character "crossed

over and brought something back
In The Mangier, the pitiful rea-
son for the man-eating machine in
the story is that everyone in the
town "needs to make sacrifices
And one character in The Mangier
repeats: "There's a little bit of me
in that machine and a little bit
of it in me The attempt to explain
the events never goes further than
these simplistic reasons. Even with
the explanation, no follow-up oc-
curs. In The Mangier, for instance,
the "sacrifices" occur to promise a
prosperous town. But the town,
Rikers Village, rarely gets shown
and certainly presents no ideal com-
munity that would warrant the sac-
rifices demanded by the machine.
Hideaway tells the tale of
Hatch Harrison (Jeff Goldblum),
who dies only to be resuscitated
after being dead 120 minutes. The
only explanation offered for this re-
suscitation is that the doctor who
performs the operation has a "spe-
cial resuscitative program Wow!
I could have come up with that rea-
son without a character to vocal-
ize it for me. Because of his
"death Hatch becomes linked with
a murderer (Jeremy Sisto) who be-
gins to stalk Hatch's daughter
Regina (Alicia Silverstone). Hatch
must find a way to stop the mur-
derer before he gets to Regina.
Hideaway quickly degrades into a
cat and mouse game replete with
chases and a final climactic con-
frontation at the murderer's hide-
Hideaway was adapted from a
book by Dean Koontz. The film ver-
sion reminded me of why I stopped
reading Koontz. Instead of invest-
ing his characters with compassion
or spending time on interesting
plots. Koontz fills page after page
with needless, gory details of death.
In Hideaway, several death se-
quences are unnecessarily pro-
tracted. The scenes have no pur-
pose other than to fill screen time
and perhaps to attract those view-
ers drawn to gratuitous violence.
Unlike Halloween, where the stalk-
ing of a victim creates unbearable
suspense (although deaths occur
quickly), the murder sequences in
Hideaway add little suspense be-
cause the viewer already knows the
outcome. In Halloween, the viewer
is kept guessing through the entire
As bad as Hideaway is, The
Mangier is even worse. This film
tries to stretch a short story into a
feature-length film. A short story
has provided the basis of many a
great film, most notably 2001: A
Space Odyssey, so the concept is
not unheard of. In adapting
Stephen King's short story, direc-
tor Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw
Massacre) adds little of his own

inventiveness. The man-eating
steam iron is too ridiculous to
frighten anyone, so the cast is the
only scary part of this film. Robert
Englund, Daniel Matmor and espe-
cially Ted Levine look like they
couid be acting in an Ed Wood pic-
ture (like Plan 9 from Outer Space),
because they have no acting skills
whatever in evidence. This film is
so painful to watch that I almost
wished there was a steam iron
present in the theater so I could
jump into it.
Quality horror films present a
tricky proposition in order to do
well. Usually horror films have
some interesting qualities even
when they do not completely suc-
ceed. Hideaway and The Mangier
have nothing to really grab the
viewer's interest. Hideaway boasts
some neat special effects, but they
have been seen before. The Man-
gier boasts a man-eating machine,
but looking at chains turning and
steam pouring out grows old
Both Hideaway and The Man-
gier need a healthy dose of remedy
before they can succeed. Neither
picture pries on unconscious fears
nor remains consistent within the
film. Thus neither film possesses
the two basic qualities needed to
make a good horror film. As a re-
sult, both films stink!
On a scale of one to ten Hide-
away rates a four and The Mangier
rates a two.
While Carrot Top's stand-up com-
edy and improv were hilarious, his
props stole the show. I've chosen a
few of my favorites to share with you:
OJ Simpson's football (with knives
attached to one end): a pair of boots
with kickstands (so drunk people
don't fall over - an especially popu-
lar one with the Greenville crowd, it
seemed): an Etch-A-Sketch (not funny
by itself, but a laugh riot when Car-
rot Top described it as Bill Clinton's
campaign promises - and then shook
it) and of course, his famous Domino's
But Carrot Top saved the best
part of the show for last: the green
trunk. The green trunk routine was
set to music, and Carrot Top imper-
sonated singers such as Steven Tyler
from Aerosmith, Madonna, Tom Petty
and. Michael Jackson. If he didn't im-
personate the singer, he made fun of
the song (i.e. Garth Brooks' "Friends
in Low Places don't ask because I
can't print the joke on that one!). But
no matter who the artist or what the
song, the audience loved it. We
laughed from beginning to end.
After the show. The Attic hosted
a post-Carrot Top party. It was there
that I learned the most important
thing about Carrot Top. He's not just
cool onstage: he's cool offstage too.
He signed autographs, took pictures
and partied with us all night.
I can't remember the last time I
laughed so much. The show was ex-
cellent. Out of 10 stars, Carrot Top
rates a 10.
