ECU's Legislators' School for
Youth Leadership Development is
bringing national attention to cam-
The Legislators' School has
been chosen to take part in a 90-
minute PBS documentary entitled
"The Seven Habits of Highly Ef-
fective People The program is
based on Stephen Covey's interna-
tional best-seller with the same
title. It will allow viewers to ob-
serve everyday people becoming
conscious of their habitual rela-
tionship to the world around them
and working hard to transform it.
"A big piece of what the na-
tional program will demonstrate is
how Covey's methods help to de-
velop a more highly effective, more
balanced life individually, as fami-
lies and as whole communities
said Katee Tully, Legislators'
School coordinator.
The selection of ECU's Legis-
lators' School to take part in the
documentary is a result of success-
fully applying Covey's methods in
their Youth Leadership Develop-
ment Program.
The Legislators' School is a
summer residential program de-
signed to target potential leaders
in North Carolina. A total of 300
eighth to 12th graders are selected
to take part in activities that will
work to develop leadership, think-
ing and communication skills.
"The purpose of the PBS crew
being here is to capture the es-
sence of Legislators' School as it
relates to the seven habits Tully
said. "This documentary will pro-
vide exposure and orientation to
people who are unaware of the
Covey philosophy and framework.
For other people it's to see a
broader application than perhaps
the one setting they may be expe-
riencing the seven habits in
The documentary, to be aired
on Jan. 17, 1996, will focus na-
tional attention to the Legislators'

The East Carolinian
Coastal house serves multiple purposes
Station ready after
more than a year
of renovations
Susan E. Schwartz
Senior Writer

ter to the melodic banter of tundra
swan and Canada goose, or taking
a summer's evening stroll, listening
to the lively singing of tropical
These descriptions sound like
relaxing camping trips taken dur-
ing time off away from school, but

sounds of the classroom - yes, the
classroom - for students at the
ECU Field Station for Coastal Stud-
ies at Lake Mattamuskeet.
Last spring, ECU and the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service agreed to
establish a field station at the
Mattamuskeet National Wildlife
Refuge for the purpose of environ-
mental educa-
tion. After
more than a
year of modest
the field sta-
tion is ready for
student use.
The field
station will be
by the College
of Arts and Sci-
ences. In May
1995, Dr.
can benefit a
broad spectrum
of disciplines
related directly
or indirectly to
coastal plain
Roger Rulifson
(biology, Insti-�Dr. RogerRulifson, biology,
Institute for Coastal and
Marine Resources
tute for Coastal
and Marine Re-
sources) was
named director
of the Field Station for Coastal
Studies at Mattamuskeet. He will
report directly to Dr. W. Keats Spar-
row, Dean of the College of Arts
and Sciences.
Originally, the building was
constructed in 1914 as the world's
largest pumping station to drain
Mattamuskeet Lake for agricultural
use. The lodge is currently main-
tained by refuge personnel under
the direction of Refuge Manager
Don Temple.
Dean Sparrow emphasized the
impact that the field station will
have on ECU as well as the com-
munities surrounding Lake
"We are very excited about the
field station and the opportunities
it provides for ECU faculty and stu-
dents to conduct important re-
search in eastern North Carolina
and we have a lot to look forward
to Sparrow sa'd. "In turn, as the
full potential of the field station is
realized, ECU will be able to pro-
vide services critical to the en-
hancement of thfc region
As the name suggests, the field
station is a place to focus study on
biological and environmental stud-
ies. It is also a lot more. Housed in
one wing of the historic
Mattamuskeet Hunting Lodge, the
field station actually provides the
opportunity for outdoor educa-
tional experiences to ECU students
in many different academic disci-
"Initially, biology students and
faculty will use the lodge to con-
duct research Sparrow said. "In
time, faculty and students in just
about every academic discipline will
also find uses for the facility
Rulifson explained the lodge is
the perfect place for faculty and stu-
dents in a variety of disciplines to
conduct serious study projects.
With five national wildlife refuges
in the area and two state parks not
too far away, perhaps the most ob-
vious academic disciplines to ben-
efit from the lodge would be biol-
ogy and coastal ecology.
The site is also conducive to
use for study in anthropology, busi-
ness, leisure studies, environmen-
tal art and history, to name just a
few. There is even
discussion of us-
ing the facility as
a writers' retreat
for English fac-
ulty and students.
can benefit a
broad spectrum
of disciplines re-
lated directly or
indirectly to
coastal plain stud-
ies Rulifson
said. "The site is
unique in that
students in a lot
of different areas
can use it
For instance,
i11 sociology stu-
dents who want to train in geron-
tology can use the site to provide
services to the elderly in a rural
"The facility has a lot of poten-
tial not just for hard science study,
but also for health and human ser-
vices study and intervention said
Jim Mitchell, director of graduate
studies in sociology.
He is working on a proposal for
the funding of a health and human
services rural institute which will
pair students from around the state
with community placements. So far,
15 potential placement sites in the
rural eastern North Carolina region
pology department also has plans
to use the field station for study.
"The lodge provides a beautiful lo-
cation to conduct anthropological
research in a unique environmen-
tal niche Phelps said. "There is a
lot of important history in the re
signs, turned doors to open out, and
installed a state-of-the-art computer-
ized fire alarm system. These
changes allow the lodge to be in
compliance with all state fire codes.
The Partnership's goal is to show
bunk beds each and a shared bath-
room. The wing also has a lounge
with a small kitchenette.
"Parts of the lodge will still have
peeling paint. But it will have hot
water, showers and a kitchenette for
some cooking Rulifson said. "We
have managed to provide a modest
inventory of equipment and supplies
such as slide projector and screen,
TV and VCR, microscopes, binocu-
lars, field guides of plants, animals
and insects, as well as other field
equipment for sampling biological or-
Anyone who wants to use the
ECU wing for overnight stay can do
so at a cost of $7.50 per person, per
night. The common areas - the ball-
room, gallery and conference room
require advanced planning. Cost is
$75 per day for the ballroom and $50
per day for the conference room.
With all the field station has, a
lot is still needed. Contributions of a
refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer,
toaster and a large microwave oven
are needed and would be greatly ap-
preciated. Anyone interested in mak-
ing donations or reserving rooms for
overnight stay should contact Dr.
Roger Rulifson at 328-1757.

Mattamuskeet Lodge (inset) will now benefit a large variety
of ECU students. (L) The ballroom offers a view of the lake
The lodge will be used by the
anthropology department for stu-
dent retreats, conferences, sympo-
sia, and as a backdrop to conduct
ethnographic research.
ECU is not the only organiza-
tion to use the lodge. It will also be
used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service. Their goal is to eventually
house their refuge headquarters
there. They are waiting for federal
funding to do so. They want to en-
courage more use of refuge lands by
the public because with so many
different habitats and natural areas,
the region is a showcase for envi-
ronmental education.
The lodge will also be used by
the Partnership for the Sounds, a
non-profit organization dedicated to
bringing sustainable economic de-
velopment into the region through
eco-tourism and environmental edu-
cation. Right now, the Albemarle-
Pamlico peninsula is viewed as the
area that travelers must pass
through in order to get to the beach.
The Partnership is trying to change
that attitude and get tourists to stop
and be educated and appreciate the
natural beauty of the area. Once
tourists do that, they'll come back
to hike, cycle and participate in
other recreational activities.
This summer, the Partnership
for the Sounds contributed $80,000
to conduct life safety renovations to
the building. They put in lit exit
the federal government that the
building is important and needs fis-
cal funding. In order to be fully re-
done, the lodge needs about $4.5
Over the past several years, stu-
dents led by Rulifson have put time
and sweat into cleaning up the lodge
for student and public use. The
Aquatic Sciences Club has done the
lion's share of the work along with
students from various university de-
partments and the Friends of the
Lodge Committee (a local organiza-
tion striving to see the building used
and renovate). These groups have
pitched in to clean, scrape and paint
in order to help stabilize the build-
The lodge is ready to be used
now for day-long conferences and
carefully planned overnight confer-
ences. Accommodations at the lodge
are not glamorous.
"When we open at the end of
September, accommodations will
still be rustic. It will not be beauti-
ful Rulifson said. "We have not
gone in to beautify the lodge, but
rather to make it safe for the public
and ECU to use
The rustic environment is what
makes the lodge so appealing as a
retreat site. Accommodations will
be dorm-style in the ECU wing of
the lodge, containing six rooms
which sleep up to 16 people. Four
rooms have a bunk bed and full bath-
room and two other rooms have two

Our View
Want your voice heard? Tired of feeling insignificant and
that the university could care less about how you feel about
issues affecting the campus?
Then get out and vote this Wednesday.
Okay, okay, we hear those heckles and sighs. We can hear
the raised student voice saying, "What difference does it make
if I vote or not?" Who cares who wins - nothing will change
Stop the apathetic whining.
Granted, it seems that students are always getting the raw
end of the deal. We can't rent books from the Student Stores,
so we have to spend half our semester's budget on textbooks.
We have no say so whether or not we can buy a taco from Taco
Bell competitive food chain out of Mendenhall instead of set-
tling for an overpriced slice of stale pizza in The Wright Place.
We can't find a parking space without having to walk a mile to
We could go on and on and on and get the picture. So,
when does the complaining stop and the action starts? We say-
Go out to the polling sites. (Remember those IDs). Vote for
your class officers. Make your presence known. Don't stand
back and let others take advantage of your silence. A non-vote
is a vote for someone you did not want to represent you.
After speaking to the presidential candidates, we can see
that they want to hear what the student body thinks. They
want to be elected, validated by their peers. Surely, this is the
feeling held by the persons running for all the offices.
Once these people are elected they are supposed to repre-
sent the views and wants of their respective class. How can
they do that if only half the students vote and speak their minds?
Then after all that Thursday rolls around. You've voted,
made your voice heard - and your candidates didn't win. Do
you give up on the whole democratic process? No, but do rant,
rave and get all the frustration out of your system then think
better luck next time. If your candidates win, celebrate then
watch if they do what they promise.
Either way you have participated in the process that many
men and women have fought and died for and continue to do
so even today.
But, for goodness sake, if you don't vote, don't starting
complaining later.
Let your
voice be
heard. Get

I saw you picking your nose
The last few weeks 1 believe that
we have cried new tears. There is a
group of students that is so op-
pressed and so deserving of our pity,
and this community has not em-
braced them. I want to devote this
little corner of the paper to remind-
ing all students, faculty and friends
of TEC that if you pick your nose,
people are going to call you names.
First, here is the initial dis-
claimer that might keep me out of
harms way. To any current or past
members of a fraternity: don't start
chiseling out a response to only the
first paragraph, there is more. 1
would not dream of making broad
generalizations about any group of
people, especially one yoked by such
a poor and unfitting reputation. It
must be hard to live that down. Come
to think of it, it must be very hard to
live down with all of the band par-
ties and tailgate abominations. Re-
ally, I'm not talking about you. Just
say to yourself, "He's not talking
about me Take a deep breath and
Everyone knows what it's like to
go around school or the playground
with other kids making fun of them.
Some people were called string bean
if they were skinny. Other people
were called tubby if they were over-
weight. Sometimes the name would
be tagged on because of a behavior.

they also called him "boogje-boy
The point is that if you are going to
pick your nose in front of all the
other classmates, all year long, then
people are going to call you names.
Sometimes it's easier to hide it
under the tabie than it is to go and
find a tissue and dispose of it prop-
erly. On Sept. 19 TEC produced an
article by a guest columnist who pro-
ceeded to portray Greek life (what-
ever that term means) with a touch
of class. As a fellow rhetorician 1 ap-
plaud this attempt to give all of those

sult us. The people of this campus
feel your pain, but we also see you

Yes there can be times when you
scratch your nose and people think
you were picking, but this is still ir-
relevant If you are known for picking
your nose, understandably, people are
going to be looking and watching for
the times when you really do pick.
Do not include in that response
a sentence about how this guy doesn't
know what he's talking about I am
speaking as a student of this univer-
sity. There are other places besides
the basements of fraternity houses
where people can see the "social re-
sponsibility" that members are taught
Every weekend, or weekday, those 1-
shirts from all of those social respon-
sibility workshops (or Greek Events)
are worn on the backs of guys that
pick their nose openly and sometimes
sing aloud about it
It is very simple If respect is what
you want, then respect you have to
earn. Do not beckon it by saying that
your members have a lot of money,
give a lot of money or spend a lot of
money. Do not disagree with another
view point (specifically the study by
Dr. Wechsler) simply by saying "Uh
uh" like a child who refuses to accept
punishment from a parent
Here's the deal: We'll stop call-
ing you guys boogie-boys if you'll stop

The new sexual revolution
I recently read a quote from a
college student who said, "The sexual
revolution is over, and everyone lost"
He is right in that it did not bring
free love and carefree sex. If anything,
the exact opposite is true. The gen-
eration before us worried about get-
ting caught or getting pregnant, and
now we worry about getting out alive.
But the sexual revolution of the
'60s and '70s did not happen without
results. The attitudes of that day are
still having effect on the news of our
The bad news is that the casual-
ties are heavy.
Today one in five Americans has
an incurable sexually transmitted dis-
ease. In the '70s, scientists had iden-
tified only five different STDs, now
there are more than 50 separate or-
ganisms and syndromes which are
spread through sexual activity.
Of course the answer from the
"free love" generation was "sheathed
love" and we brought in the era of
safe-sex and condoms in the class-
room. As they sold us this bill of
goods, they failed to see condoms are
not effective and no matter how well
you scream the message to use them,
people won't and people don't.
Dr. Susan Weller of the Univer-
sity of Texas explains, "Since contra-
ceptive research indicates condoms
are about 90 percent effective in pre-
venting pregnancy, many people, even
physicians, assume condoms prevent
HIV transmission with the same de-
gree of effectiveness Of course you
can only get pregnant at certain times
of the month, but you can get an STD
anytime you have sex.
Weller conducted an analysis of
11 separate studies regarding condom
efficacy in actual use. Collectively,
these studies show that latex condoms
had an average failure rate of 31 per-
the Student Union Board of Directors,
Media Board, and the Homecoming
Steering Committee. Not only has he
served his organization, he has served
the whole student body in represent-
ing students' views and opinions.
As the Student Body President
and a graduating senior, 1 am encour-
aging you to not only come our and
vote on Wednesday, but come our and
vote for the person who should be the
senior class president.

I feel we should
look at rewriting
the sexual
attitudes that
have been
handed down to
cent in protecting against HIV. I am
glad airlines don't consider crashing
one out of three times as safe.
But even if they did work great
we still face the problem that people
do not use them. Don't take my word
for it do the informal test Ask 10
people in your residence hall or fra-
ternity (or wherever) if they are sexu-
ally active and if they always use a
condom (or even if they use one most
of the time). Get your results and write
the paper to tell us what you found
Family Planning Perspective, a
former affiliate journal of Planned
Parenthood, reports that "only 17
percent of those with multiple sexual
partners and 13 percent of those with
risky sexual partners used condoms
all of the time
And the issue is not the exposure
of the message. You would be hard
pressed to find someone over 15 who
did not know what a condom was or
how to use it. (Tell a 10-year-old you
found a condom on the verandah and
he will ask, "What's a verandah?"). As
a matter of fact, the message has
seemed to increase the free love men-
tality without changing any of the
bottom line sexual behavior.
Family Planning Perspectives
presented a recent study indicating
that between 1988 and 1991 - the
years the safe-sex message was getting
its greatest exposure - the number
of males ages 15 to 19 having sex in-
creased, ana the number using
condoms decreased. The message
failed to do anyone any good and may
have actually set us on a course for
greater disaster.
The good news is that our gen-
eration gets a "do over
Fortunately we do not have to
buy into the same thought patterns
of the generation before us. I love
their music, but I do not have to live
by their moral standards (or lack
thereof). As a Gen Xer, I feel we should
look at rewriting the sexual attitudes
that have been handed down to us via
the bankrupt culture that went before
Those good of days have brought
us to a 50 percent divorce rate (a good
chunk of our parents), rampant ille-
gitimacy and an epidemic of diseases
that we did not even know existed 20
years ago.
I have seen the tragedy. This sum-
mer a friend of mine died of AIDS.
That makes three personal friends and
I am ready for it to stop � and I do
not think the bankrupt "safe-sex"
message is going to cut it It is just a
big pack of condom selling lies.
So for my money it is time for a
new sexual revolution - one that stops
buying into the lies our generation
has so easily gobbled up and changes
the pattern for things to come. For-
get the crap they want to sell us about
safe-sex. The safest sex we have is sex
in the context of a life long commit-
ted relationship. That is the message
I want to hear. That is the only mes-
sage proven to work.
A year of pieces and mistrust
As of this writing, I'm on my sec-
ond consecutive night of insomnia. The
first night was pretty dismal, but tonight
has degenerated me into the Quaker
Brainmeal Man. My apartment was mak-
ing me nuts, so I wandered off into the
night to whichever coffeepit was still open
to mingle among those as wired as I felt
Caffeine is a bizarre thing indeed -
it flash-bums the nerves while at the
same time unlimbering the tongue. Af-
ter midnight all the world's an ashtray,
coffeehouse or bar, and once you get
started, there's no getting off the Disori-
ent Express.
You hear a lot of outrageous drivel
over coffee. One thing this miracle bev-
erage does not do that it really should, is
make you wary. Watch out because 12
o'clock is when the theories come out
everything from the Nature of Art to who
realty plugged JFK. The perils of staying
too close to the woodwork.
I've long since tried to turn in my
friend Casey for that dark deed that went
down way back in '63, both to settle the
biggest controversy of the 20th century
and so that the legions of conspiracy
buffs can finally empty out the
punchbowls at their silly annual conven-
tion and go home once and for all.
The JFKaholics instantly rejected
him as a suspect of course. Casey is both
too young to have committed the crime
and too chaotic in his thoughts to even
have formulated a solid plan. Subtlety
has never been his forte.
Not that firing a high-powered rifle
out a window in broad daylight at the
president is subtle. The whole experience
had a near side-effect where I could have
possibly ended up asking Kennedy him-
self his opinion on whodunit because
Casey threatened to beat me to death
with a copy of that wretched JFK video-
cassette, before he calmed down and
actually laughed at the idea of unseat-
ing Oswald as the most popular dart
Brian Wright
Opinion Columnist
Watch out,
because 12
o'clock is
when the
theories come
board in history.
The spirits of longhead conspiracy
theorists are crying to me now on the
breeze, chiding me for my pigheaded
debunking of the facts. Even their ghosts
are paranoid, especially the ones who
died of "natural" causes. Death has
brought them not peace, but iatead an
even weirder, more debilitating complex.
I can't spit at the idea of a deep-
running conspiracy too much, though.
After all, it would explain a lot maybe
well enough to let free a bunch of pent-
up see-I-told-you-sos.
Who dealt Kennedy a fistful of the
ace of spades? Who knows? The network
of suspicion has gotten so inbred and
all-inclusive that OJ. Simpson himself
could very well be the one stinking of
30-year-old gunpowder.
Scapegoats sell, obviously, and I
would say that it's possible to keep pin-
ning great unsolved mysteries on the
poor slob, right down to the Godforsaken
Lost Colony, just to have someone tan-
gible to pinatafy, but the majority of the
sleuths would never buy it Not because,
at least in the instance of the Croatan
conundrum, of the fact that Simpson was
bom a few hundred years too late to ever
njn the risk of doing the fUm-at-11 fox
No, the Buffs wouldn't digest the
concept of Simpson as the Dallas death-
dealer too well because the idea of a lone
gunman is too simple and just not as
much fun.
Who wants to fry all the way out to
Dallas for an annual Lee Harvev Oswald-
bashing convention. Not me, and neither
do those uptight factmongers who are
about as close to real historians as Mr.
Cash is to your friendly neighborhood
loan officer.
Maybe Oswald did do it in defiance
of all the principles of ballistics, gravity,
and common sense. In all probability,
though, he didn't so these groups con-
vene with an almost religious regularity
to hash over Umbrella Man and the
Grassy Knoll.
The point is that there is a differ-
ence between being thorough and be-
ing nitpicky and overanalyzing. When
these bozos start considering that the
Grassy Knoll itself was indeed the cul-
prit-excuse me, main accomplice - then
we'll know it's time to pack it in and grve
the reigns of rationality over to the king-
dom of fools.
It'll never end, though, just like the
recurring rash of Elvis sightings. It would
be like proving beyond a shadow of a
doubt that the Loch Ness Monster is re-
ally just a halfsubmerged log, that Bigfoot
is a man in a gorilla suit that UFOs are
aluminum pieplates on lengths of fish-
ing line and that the Lost Colony simply
decided to relocate to the Bahamas.
Myth and mystery keep reason,
which is just plain boring, in stasis. Just
ask the Simpson jurors about that one.
By the way, if this article fails to
make it to press, I'll know who is respon-
sible. But that's okay -1 can can in the
theorists. I hear they take on side projects
every now and then, and together we'll
tear Roger Daltry and Pete Towsend to
crying, broken shreds.

NC native recalls
Allman joys
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
When record label publicists
promote bands to play venues, the
term "legend" is frequently used
but seldom deserved. For example,
when Gibb Droll comes to town, he
is billed as "a guitar legend in the
making Though Gibb is a gifted
guitarist and his band puts on an
emotional show, packing the Attic
every time he's in town, it's a tad
early in his career for this billing
to be truly accurate.
Talk to a y rock musician or
die-hard fan about legendary gui-
tarists and several names will be
mentioned. Men such as Carlos
Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric
Clapton, Dickey Betts and Jeff Beck
are only six who are consistently
considered to be legends.
A man whose legendary status
is not far behind these immortals
is Warren Haynes. Pulling double
duty also as a guitarist in the
Allman Brothers Band, Haynes
leads an ominous sounding power
trio, Government Mule. The Mule
is currently on a club tour support-
ing their self-titled debut release.
Born and raised in Ashville,
NC, Haynes has been playing with
the Allman Brothers Band since the
band reformed. But Haynes cer-
tainly wasn't an overnight success.
"Before I joined the Allman
Brothers Band 1 was a session
guitar player in Nashville. Then 1
played with David Allen Coe, played
with Dickey Betts Band for three
years before being asked to join the
Allman Brothers Band Haynes
told TEC just prior to showtime at
the Attic last Thursday.
"It wasn't like Hootie and the
Blowfish where, overnight I went
from playing coffeehouses to coli-
seums Haynes continued, seeming
confident in his abilities yet mod-
estly gracious.
Some people consider success
in music to be how large the venue
is and how many thousands of
people will pay to see an artist per-
form. Warren Haynes and bassist
Allen Woody both played with the
Allmans at Walnut Creek
Amphitheatre this summer, but en-
joy the intimacy of smaller venues.
"Even with the Allmans, we en-
joy playing smaller arenas, booking
multiple nights. You can't really
connect with the audience when
there's thousands of people and
you can't even see most of them
Haynes contended.
"Our music is dark and psyche-
delic we like playing college
towns because college-age crowds
tend to be open-minded Woody
Though Haynes and Woody
play together in the Allman Broth-
ers Band and Haynes and Abts
played together in the Dickey Betts
Band, Government Mule's sound is
not even comparable to the
Allmans. They are simply two dif-
ferent bands. Woody and Haynes
were rumored to be leaving the
Allmans to pursue Government
Mule full-time.
"Neither myself or Woody have
any intentions of leaving the
Allman Brothers Band. Our sched-
ule with the Allmans gets looser
and looser every year. So it gives
us a lot of flexibility Haynes con-

Lenny Kravitz
Jay Myers
St iff Writer
Lenny Kravitz has suffered the
slings and arrows of critics and non-
fans ever since he put out his first
album, Let Love Rule, in 1989. He
has been accused of using old and
tired themes from the '70s, having
no original creativity, and of being
nothing more than a poseur, riding
the coattails of those who came be-
fore. Never have these criticisms been
more relevant than for his new al-
bum, Circus.
I have to admit, however, that I
didn't share these sentiments until
now. Kravitz has always stuck by two
principles: never play an instrument
or use a piece of equipment that was
made after 1972, and always have
fun. That's what was so great about
his first three albums; they were fun
to listen to and they felt appropri-
ately funky. None of his albums were
meant to be masterpieces.
Unlike Prince, whom he is often

lowed by "Uh Well, I mean

That's fine, as far as it
goes. Everybody needs a little
relaxing, no-brainer entertain-
ment from time to time. I re-
treat, on occasion, into
schlocky old monster movies
from the '50s. I love those
things; their cheapo special ef-
fects and wholesome paranoia
touch the kid in me like noth-
ing else ever put to film.
It's mind-candy, but after
a hard week I need and de-

If for no other reason, this
is why art is important With-
out art, without something to
engage us and challenge us
mentally, our brains and souls
will be eaten away.
I'm not talking paintings
and poetry here, although
those things are certainly art
No, I'm talking about movies,
television, music, popular nov-
els. I'm talking about the stuff
we entertain ourselves with on
a day-to-day basis. Remember,
"literature" only becomes "lit-
erature" because some brainy
scholar deems it worthy of the
Most of the great writers
we study today wrote popular
entertainment in their day.
Charles Dickens, for example,
was one of the most popular
writers of his time, the Victo-
rian equivalent of Michael
Crichton. Shakespeare was ba-
sically Quentin Tarantino,
Edgar Allan Poe was Stephen
King, and Mozart was a one-
man Led Zeppelin.
Frightening, isn't it?
When you put the weight of
history on the shoulders of
somebody like Robert Plant, it
seems to totter a little. Some-
times I think it's going to
come crashing down, pinning
us all beneath the rubble.
And my friends wonder
why I'm such a harsh critic.
I'm overjoyed when I see good
art, and outraged when I get
my hands on something bad.
Since I have very exacting
standards and spend about
half of my waking hours expe-
riencing art, I'm outraged an
awful lot.
People often tell me that
I need to lighten up, that I
shouldn't expect so much
from this movie or that music.
When I hear this, I just scowl
and grunt. I'm not interested
in being less demanding, in
shutting off part of my brain
in the name of enjoying some-
thing mundane. Art has to
earn my devotion.
I don't want that much,
really. Something with at least
a spark of originality. Some-
thing that doesn't insult my in-
telligence. Something with a
little wit. That's all I expect
really. I just don't want to be
Occasionally, though, I do
like to find something truly ex-

compared to, everyone knows that
Kravitz isn't a musical genius and
thus the expectations from him are
lower. With Circus, it seems as
though Kravitz is trying to surpass
those expectations and create a mas-
terpiece. He fails miserably.
The production values are as
good as ever, and Kravitz shows him-
self once again to be a virtual band
unto himself by playing almost every
instrument on the album as well as
writing most of the music and lyrics.
What's missing from the new record
is the fun. It seems as though Kravitz
is no longer enjoying his position as
a simple energetic performer. He now
wants to be taken seriously as an "art-
In order for that to happen,
Kravitz has turned to religion and
spirituality as subject matter for his
art This isn't a bad idea, either. Art-
ists have been doing just that for cen-
turies. V2 has proved that spiritual-
ity can be conveyed through rock
music without preachiness and with
strong emotional impact.
However, Kravitz feels as though
the only way to reach out with his
spirit is through preaching. Because
of this, Kravitz puts himself in a po-
sition above everyone else and that
is where he fails. He proceeds to give
sermon after sermon on this album,
from warnings about pride
("Magadalene") and the dangers of
hustling ("Thin Ice") to a plea against
suicide ("Don't Go And Put A Bullet
In Your Head"). All are delivered with
a monotone, distant voice and dull,
methodical instrumentation.
The most significant example of
this is on the song "God is Love Al-
though the track clocks in at about
four and a half minutes, it is so in-
credibly boring and methodical that
it seems to go on forever. Mostly this
is due to such totally insipid lyrics as
"God is loveHe makes the rain that
makesthe flowersGod is loveAnd
so amazing are His powers God
loves everyoneThat's why He gave
His Son(oh yeah) This religious
swell continues to the breaking point
with the tracks "In My Life Today"
(about God's everyday presence) and
"The Resurrection" (you figure it out).
With his new status as minister
and preacher on Circus, Kravitz has
changed for the worse. For him, it
seems as though "Rock and Roll is
Dead" literally. Too bad, it was fun
while it lasted.

MULE from page 5
Gov't Mule is a live studio re-
lease. The entire project, start to fin-
ish, took exactly 21 days, a record
of which Carl Lewis would be proud.
Several of the cuts are first takes.
The trio wanted it to be as close to
live as possible because, as Woody
stated, "the Mule can't be tamed
Judging from crowd response to
the trio's first visit to Greenville.
Woody hit the nail squarely on the
head. The Attic was crowded, but
not packed as Gov't Mule floored the
mixed-age crowd with a mind-bog-
gling show.
On the front row, folks couldn't
be pulled away from the action. A
pair of golden-age gents were seen
contently swaying to and fro, eyes
closed as the legendary guitarist slid
through chord after hypnotic chord.
When the band finished their
set around 1:15 a.m all three band
members came from backstage. For
over a half an hour, they contently
signed autographs and individually
thanked fans for coming out to the
show. The fans should have been
thanking Government Mule. It was
certainly one of the best perfor-
mances in the Attic's 26 years of
Government Mule was simply

Pirates fall short at Illinois

Senior Writer
So close' When East Carolina
visited Illinois on Saturday, they
knew they would be in for a defen-
sive battle, and that's exactly what
they got as they lost to the Fight
ing lllini in heart-
breaking style 7-0
in front of a crowd
of 60,045 at Me-
morial Stadium.

phy candidate
Simeon Rice lived
up to all the hype
as he and fellow
All-American can-
didate Kevin
Hardy pressured Pirate QB Marcus
Crandell all afternoon, but it was
the last ECU drive of the game that
had Pirate fans hearts beating a
little faster.
ECU got the bail back with
2:19 remaining after the Pirate de-
fense held Illinois to three downs
and out. On their first posession
from their own 27 yard line, ECU
QB Crandell found Jason Nichols
for a four yard gain. Two straight
false start penalties pushed the ball
back to the ECU 21. But facing a
third down and 21 yards to go with
1:31 to go, Crandell found a streak-
ing Larry Shannon down the right
side of the field for a 51 yard gain
and t set the Pirates up on the Illi-
nois 33.
On the next play from scrim-
mage, Crandell hit Jerris McPhail
for 13 yards and it moved the ball
to the Fighting lllini 20. Once again
Crandell found McPhail for a seven
yard gain, and the Pirates were in
business at the lllini 13 vard line.

Crandell then rushed out of the
pocket for a nine yard gain and ECU

The rest of the game would be
a defensive struggle, as both of-
fenses stalled. ECU was 4-18 on
third down conversions, as Illinois
wasn't much better as they were 7-
20. The lllini defense held Jerris
McPhail in check most of the game,
as the senior running back had 19
carries for 47 yards.
"That is the best defense we
have seen said McPhail. "Hardy

At ECU, the course is located
near the softball diamond. It is
very challenging, with trees con-

cramped quarters. There are rules
about not damaging the trees on
the course, forcing the players to

This year's King and Queen of
the Halls was once again an incred-
ible event for all the residence halls,
with College Hill dominating the
royal affair.
After rain dampened the origi-
nal day of competition, record num-
bers appeared last Thursday. The first
of many Natural Life Events planned
tot the students throughout the se-
mester, King and Queen of the Halls
accomplished its main goal, to flood
the Hill with as many residence hall
students as possible.
In its eighth consecutive year,
the 1995 King and Queen of the
Halls had the second highest partici-
pation total of the events history.
Competition was definitely the
key. The day's big upset came when
the men of Scott Hall dethrowned
Garrett Hall for the first tune in seven
years. Scott Hall accomplished what
was thought to be the impossible.
They almost doubled the point score
of Garrett Hall, won the tug-of-war
between the two. and took the crown
home. Over 20 of Scott Hall's resi-
dents attended, ensuring the crown's
The battle for the Queen's
Crown was another highlight of the
day. Tyler Hall had al! the right
moves, with over 28 participation,
they closed in quickly on Greene Hall
and Clement Hall and ran awaj
the final victory. Along with the
Queen's Crown, Tyler Hall showed
their strength to clinch all the win-
nings, by dominating Greene Hall in
the tug-of-war to take home Natural
Life T shii
The final battle came down the
to the co-ed struggle for the I
Jewels. This competition included ten
different residence halls. As it came

Eckardt in the prison's segregation unit
for the last 18 days of his term. Other-

was largely uneventful, prison spokes-
woman Carolyn Schnoor said.
The other three people sent to
prison for the attack on Kerrigan were
released from prison earlier this year.
Eckardt was the last to be freed
because he was the last to begin serving
