ECU without intramural fields and

Other clubs such as rugby, la-

on the allied health fields, will also
lose their spaces once the renovation

acres to enlarge the area and con-

be divided into segments that focus
on self-love and relationships.
"Monday's segment, 'Focus on

it is ECU's responsibility to provide
classes whenever it is possible for
students to attend.
"There are approximately
5,000 students living on campus
and an estimated 2.000 students
living within walking distance from
campus Eakin said. "The Univer-
sity did not want to take away from
these students' education
Eakin said for those who did
not live on campus, he hoped that
they would make a mature decision
on whether or not the roads were
safe enough to make it to class.

The majority of cars had non-fac-

quently spotted.
Many cars with tinted windows
are being broke into. The reason be-
ing when the glass is broken, it
doesn't shatter all over the place
because of the tinted film.
Johnnie Umphlet of
the ECU Police De-

pus are hit the most. The pattern
seems to be that weekends are not
as big a time as some weeknights for
break-ins. He said that most occur
during the evening hours of 10 p.m.
to midnight. Just because that is a
pattern doesn't mean it can't be bro-

guard down, Umphlet said.

Universities join forces to battle violence
Marguerite Benjamin
Assistant News Editor
As the threat of violence in-
creases worldwide, several universi-
ties and educational institutions are
finding ways to combat the problem.
ECU is one of 300 sites across the
country which will air two
videoconferences aimed at helping
to stop worldwide violence.
On Tuesday, the School of So-
cial Work and Criminal Justice Pro-
gram held its first broadcast of a
national videoconference hosted by
noted broadcast journalist Charles
Kuralt live from UNC-Chapel Hill.
The videoconference, entitled "So-
cial Workers and the Challenge of
Violence Worldwide is being spon-
sored by the National Association
of Social Workers.
"(Tuesday the panel discussed
worldwide violence and the impact
social workers have in fighting the
problem said Gail Sharpe, clinical
instructor for the School of Social
According to Sharpe, the focus
of the teleconferences is on how the
U.S. and less advantaged nations are
linked through the issue of violence,
community initiatives that have bro-
ken new ground in abating violence
and viewing social work as global
work which "expands our thinking
as we look for other solutions
Kuralt, who has been an over-
seas correspondent for CBS, served
as a moderator as 12 panelists from
different universities, corporations
and research groups discussed such
issues as remedial training programs
for high schools and social action
against violence to women.
"Everyone in attendance be-
came more aware of how they can
become actively involved in interven-
ing with worldwide violence both
nationally and locally Sharpe said.
Sharpe said the conference
drew only a small crowd of about
12 on Tuesday, and she encourages
others to attend the next conference
which will be held at the academic
communications studio in Joyner li-
brary on Friday, Feb. 9, from 1p.m.

As the spring semester
launches off, many students are
faced with piles of projects, papers,
tests and other activities that fill up
their calendars. Many students find
themselves under an abundance of
stress and do not know how to deal
with it.
ECU'S Student Leadership De-
velopment Programs is trying to
help students cope with school
stress by holding a program entitled,
"A Leader's guide for Handling
Wellness Issues" on Feb. 13.
Terrance Dove, a student assis-
tant in the student leadership de-
partment said the program will help
students who are in leadership po-
sitions become aware of some of the
things not only themselves but their
followers face on a day to day basis.
"All the programs Student Lead-

that are of concern Dove said.
"This program deals with alcohol,
stress and other topics dealing with
your well-being
The program will be presented
by Ms. Heather Zophy, a health edu-
cator at ECU.
Zophy said she will cover the
whole concept of wellness. A few of
the topics she will be covering are
spiritual, mental and physical
"The topic of well-being effects

stand because it is a part of every-
thing we do.

The Minnesota Daily contends
that the photos are protected by the
First Amendment and the Minnesota
Shield law, which protects unpublished
material from becoming part of a crimi-
nal prosecution. The Daily argues that
giving unpublished information to po-
lice or prosecutors can cause report-
ers to be viewed as an arm of the law,
creating a "chiiling effect" on their
ability to gather the news.
But prosecutors have said a jour-
nalist has the same duty to testify as
any citizen who witnesses a crime.

Play while you
can because
once our
intramurals end.
You better play intramurals now while you have the chance.
As soon as the expansion begins for Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium,
the fields will no longer exist (see article on front page).
We at TEC agree that the expansion is much needed to
interest conference officials and bring in top teams, but ECU
students will be paying a heavy price. ECU's football program
will be getting a big boost with the expansion, but students
will have to suffer through at least two semesters of no intra-
mural fields due to a lack of funds.
Approximately 8,700 students participate in intramural
activities. Once construction begins, these students will have
no place to play. Eventually the fields behind the stadium will
be a parking lot. Not only are the students losing the Ficklen
fields, but the fields behind allied health will also be lost
Some of us at TEC participate in intramural sports and it
is a shame that we won't be able to play any intramurals for at
least a year. That brings up the question of when and where
will we regain intramural fields?
It is projected that the construction will take about a year,
but we all know about construction on the ECU campus. The
athletic facility and library are already running behind sched-
ule. We at TEC think a year is the minimum it will take.
And where exactly will the new fields be located? That is a
question that seems to go unanswered.
Intramurals give non-scholarship athletes the chance to
participate and show their skills. It provides an outlet for hav-
ing fun and meeting people.
ECU has many superb intramural teams. For example, the
"Super Ho's the winners of the all campus tournament, rep-
resented ECU in many flag football tournaments this year. They
even went to New Orleans and played in the national tourna-
ment Even though they did not win, it was still an honor for
them to be there and represent the hundreds of students who
played flag football and did not go.
So what will they do next year? In fact what will all the
athletes who play flag football, soccer and Softball do with no
We believe better planning could have allowed ECU to come
up with an alternative plan to avoid the confusion that will be
caused once the stadium construction begins. Needless to say,
there will be some irate students who will request that they be
allowed to play somewhere else. But that somewhere is still in
Unfortunately, the intramural program will be the biggest
loser during the construction. It is too bad that earlier plan-
ning didn't allow for an alternative plan.
The expansion will be a plus, but the loss during the time
we have to wait may not be worth it Now if you will excuse ur,
we have some playing to do before we get hit by the wrecking
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor,
As a 1995 graduate of ECU and
a current grad student at American
University, I am embarrassed by the
recent incident involving Morris
Grooms and Tim Fudd. For ECU stu-
dents who haven't caught the basket-
ball team fever, Grooms was elbowed
in the throat by AU senior Fudd, who
was then suspended for five games by
the Colonial Athletic Association.
This is the most severe penalty
We're sorry
the CAA has imposed in its 11-year
history and the story made the front
page of the Washington Post's sports
I speak for many AU students -
the rest of whom are not ECU grads
- when I wish Grooms a quick recov-
ery. ECU's basketball team is on its
way to a conference victory, and even
those of us who have moved away
from Greenville still manage to keep
up with the scores, and the excite-
And I thank Othello Meadows for
shooting such an incredible at-the-
buzzer, heart-stopping, game-wining

day would NOT have been the same.
Good luck guys. And congratulations

Get the facts straight
To the Editor,
In the Feb. 1 edition of TEC, "Our
View" printed an article concerning
athletes and whether "they really de-
serve all the perks that came with
pumping iron Whoever "Our View"
may represent, this letter is to clear
up a few things that you have obvi-
ously been misinformed about, if in-
formed at alL The items you refer to
as perks are far from that Athletes
are on athletic scholarships as a re-
sult of years and years of hard work,
dedication, and intense training. Your
reference to the top notch weight fa-
cilities that athletes use is correct but
this facility is shared by seventeen
different teams. You seem to be for-
getting the Student Recreation Cen-
ter that is in progress which will sur-
pass anything we have in the Sport
Medicine Complex.
TEC also refers to the fact that
athletes register earlier for classes.
Athletes have to be finished with
classes by 2:00 in order to make af-
ternoon practices. Finishing class by
2:00 usually means beginning class at
8:00 A.M often after 6:00 A.M. work-
TEC refers to missing classes on
the day of or before games as a perk.
This is a huge disadvantage for ath-
letes. Missing class because we have
to travel means turning in assign-
ments early and suffering the conse-
quences of a full days sic lecture.
Being an athlete at any major univer-
sity is a job in itself. Many sacrifices
are made by athletes in order to be-
come the best they can in their sport.
Basically, TEC needo to get their facts
straight before bashing athletes. With-
out the athletic program. ECU would
not be the major university it has be-

Labels pull in suckers
There is a modern craze to cut
out fat, cholesterol and get enough
nutrients. This raises new hope that
Americans are finally getting smarter
about their dieting and eating habits.
Has America finally seen the light?
Unfortunately, the only thing that
America is seeing is clever marketing
labels, and the labels are doing a
pretty good job of getting their share
of consumers' wallet stuffing.
The latest wave of foodstuff mar-
keting that has taken off is health
conscious marketing. Products all
have something health related on the
package. Long gone are the labels that
read 'tastes great' Even the old faith-
ful 'wholesome' now seems like a di-
nosaur in the world of foodstuff mar-
keting adjectives.
The top five new terms are cho-
lesterol-free, light, reduced-fat low-fat
and nutrient rich. There are some
adaptations of these such as 99 per-
cent fat free, but these five are defi-
nitely at the top of the list
The problem with these is that
while the notions may be good, the
terms can be misleading. While it
would seem that a product would
need to contain at least 25 percent of
a nutrient to be classified as a "good"
source of it it doesn't In fact a prod-
uct only has to contain a mere 10
percent of the USDA's recommended
daily allowance of a nutrient to be
qualified as a "good" source of it You
would need to find the "high in" cal-
cium rating to get 20 percent Thus,
if we were to drink milk, which is listed
as "high in" calcium, to fulfill the daily
calcium requirement we would have
to pour five cups of it down the hatch.
The term "cholesterol-free" in-
Chris Ariine
Senior Opinion Columnist
Its for the sam
reason they're
fat in the first
place; they're
spires thoughts that the producer of
the good is looking out for you. The
truth of the matter is that this means
that the food never had any choles-
terol in it to begin with. In fact the
manufacturers often do you one
worse. There may not be any choles-
terol in the food but the manufactur-
ers may have added some form of par-
tially hydrogenated oil which tend to
raise the levels of cholesterol the body
would normally store for significantly
longer periods of time. This leaves you
worse off than you were if you had
just eaten the cholesterol laden ver-
sion and had a short term flux.
Now for the last example of how
consumers are suckered into thinking
that they are making a huge difference.
The label "low-fat" has the second high-
est batting average of any health con-
scious label on the market second only
to "fat-free This leads the consumer
to believe that there is very little fat in
a product (i.e. around 10 percent) The
truth of the matter is that a product
can getaway with 30 percent of its
calories and, in the case of cookies, 40
percent of it's calories coming from fat
and still get to use the label. Thirty-
five percent of the calories in low-fat
milk come from fat
The question is raised - why don't
American's read into the labels more?
Its for the same reason they're fat in
the first olace; they're lazy. A survey
conducted at the University of Cincin-
nati states that 84 percent of shoppers
shown a package with a claim on it
didn't turn to the Federally required
nutritional chart on the back.
I remember the first time I fell into
the trap of creative and misleading food
advertising. Playing slave to the vices
of my love for foods my mother
wouldn't let me have as a child I was
face to face with a shelf of Twinkies at
Seven-Eleven. There was one package
of standard Twinkies, and one with
"low-fat" Out of boredom, I compared
the two labels. To my horror there was
less fat in the "low-fat" Twinkies which
was good; however, they weighed less
according to the label. What a scam! I
couldn't have felt more violated if I
were a transvestite in a Mexican prison
on Cinco de Mayo. I was furious. To
this day I have not bought a Hostess
The truth of the matter is that
Americans are a bunch of suckers when
it comes to foodstuff marketing. They
read a few words that sound good, ac-
cept it for gospel, and then pat them-
selves on the back for doing so. They
continue to eat big portions, stay fat
and reassure themselves that they are
making a valiant attempt because the
label tells them so. There's a sucker
born every minute, and sooner or later
they all end up in the grocery store.
Valentines made easy
"OK sir, that wili be $58 dollars
for a dozen long-stem red roses. Will
there be anything else?" How can that
be? With this kind of expenditure, I will
have no more money left
Sound familiar guys? Yes, it is a
familiar sound to many guys out there.
It is the sound of buying our loved one
a gift to show our affection. It's actu-
ally kind of ridiculous if you ask me. I
think flowers are great, but for
Valentine's Day, merchants jack up the
price to three, sometime four times it's
original price.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to
give your loved one something that does
not take three months to pay for? What
about love? You can give your special
someone the gift of love!
You can not find it on the shelf at
Wal-Mart or K-Mart You won't find it
as item number 3624-B on QVC. Only
you can make this item. It won't even
cost you a cent You have it right inside
of yourself. The love you can give can't
be replaced.
AH right it's time to make those
plans for the big event sometimes mar-
keted more than Halloween. It's next
Wednesday so time is of the essence.
You want to impress your Valentine and
don't have much money to do it with.
Fear not my fellow broke friends. I have
a few ideas that can perhaps help you
out of your quandary.
So many times when 1 go to a res-
taurant it is overcrowded and the wait
to get a seat takes longer than you
would really like to wait Then, don't'
Don't wait in a line to eat food that is
probably overpriced anyway. Eat at
home and save time and money. Cook
a special dinner for your Valentine. Did
someone say cook?
Yes, to cook a meal shows more
thought than to go to a restaurant and
pay for a meal someone else cooked for
you. Many times, it is even impressive
to cook the meal in front of the person
you are trying to make feel good. Me, I
love to cook. It's not just a hobby of
mine. Ask any of my friends and they

Opinion Columnist

will tell you that I cook for my friends
and dates. Not just to save money, in
fact many times it can cost more to cook
a meal. But not if you follow my advice.
I have been cooking for seven years now
and I have learned a few tricks that can
save a few bucks here and there.
First of all, to make this feast you
have to know your dates likes and dis-
likes when it comes to food. Does this
person like seafood or the garden type
with meals? You need to know this.
Don't go outright and ask what kind of
food they like, be suave about it and try
to get them to tell you what they like. If
you are actually interested in this per-
son, then it should come up in conver-
After you find out what types of
food they like, plan the menu. Don't
make a menu that will take three days
to cook and takes all your time from
school and friends. A good meal can
take anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours
to prepare. Now, the time it takes de-
pends on what you are cooking. For an
Italian meal, if you make meat sauce,
let the sauce simmer for five to six hours.
That allows the flavor from all the in-
gredients to soak into the sauce.
Once you plan your menu, it is time
to go to the store. Generally speaking,
Kroger and Piggly Wiggly are the cheap-
est stores to shop at Check the Sunday
circulars, they have some good deals in
them for your grocery needs. The stores
will have everything you need to make
this meal. If you plan on having a sea-
food meal, there is a seafood merchant
at the corner of 10th Street and
Greenville Boulevard.
It is now time to make the meal.
You have planned the meal, shopped
for it and now you want to cook it A
meal such as yours should have love in
it Take your time and do not skip steps
in the directions in order to speed the
process up. The directions are laid out
in a specific order for a reason. Many
times when a recipe calls for a white
sauce, such as Alfredo sauce, don't buy
the pre-made stuff, make it yourself.
A good white Alfredo sauce is as
follows: one cup of milk, 12 cup of
flour and 14 cup of grated Parmesan
cheese. Mix these ingredients over a low
burner until they thicken. Add the pre-
ceding ingredients to taste. This is a base
Alfredo sauce that can be used with
most meals.
See, it is not hard to make the foods
yourself. Just think about what it is you
want to make. Many times a person feels
that because it has a long name, it must
be hard to make. It is often the case
that it is actually easy to make.
From this point on, the rest is up
to you. How you lay the table out where
you want to eat the meal, what kind of
lighting and music you want is all up to
you. It's your show and you call the
shots. Remember, it does not take a lot
of money to show someone you care.
It means more to make the meal
than to buy it precooked. Show that
special someone you care and cook
them a nice meal. Perhaps you can even
type up the menu and decorate it for
them to keep. Can they find that in a
store? I think not!
Good luck with Valentine's Day.
Don't let the merchants of Greenville
fool you into thinking that you must
have their food or their products to be
a successful date. Do what feels right
and you will succeed.

Music transforms "Moon

Authentic folk
music enhances
Appalachian play
Jennifer Coleman
Senior Writer
"Dark of the Moon" is not a mu-
Although music is an extremely
important part of the show, it is not
used to further the action, as in a mu-
sical, but is so much a part of the lives
of the Appalachian people that it al-
most becomes a character in itself.
Having said what "Dark of the
Moon" is not, the task becomes to
decide what it is. This is not so easily
done. The East Carolina Playhouse in-
terpretation and director John
Shearing vision of the play is a very
true one. So much emphasis was
placed on an accurate portrayal of the
Appalachian mountain folk that many
of the songs originally included in the
script were discarded and new ones
were selected that better suited the
"I felt a lot of those songs were
both spurious and corny Shearin
said. "They are spurious in the sense
that they wei? not their 'natural'
songs - they are not real Appalachian
folk songs. I wanted this experience
to be more authentic with regards to
the people and the culture
Why such a focus on accuracy for
a theatrical production? According to
Mort Stein, musical director, the mu-
sic is as much a part of this particu-
lar story as it was a part of the lives
of the Appalachian people, which
makes the musical representation a
pivotal part of the overall staging.
"It comes from a tradition of sing-
ing. Most people did sing - it was the
only art they could take part in. They
didn't paint, sculpt; they had music.
It was a tradition to sit around after
supper singing. Any member of their
culture would be prepared to sing at
any time if asked Stein said.
There are a number of authentic
instruments used in the show as wHl.
Among the more unusual ones, at
least for today, are a washboard, wash-
tub, Jew's harp, mandolin and banjo.
"The script called for an accor-
dion, which is altogether wrong for
the place and time. It was just a stroke
of luck that Brian Davis and Justin
Allen knew how to play guitar very
well, and Justin said. 'Well, I have a
mandolin, 1 could fool around with it
and see if I can do that' and Ty Cobb
got excited about the Jew's harp, and
Michael Schilabbaj wanted to play the
washboard Shearin said.

Circus put in freakish spotlight
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Jim Rose is a freak. I mean that
in the nicest way possible, you un-
derstand. Besides, I don't think he
would take offense.
Mr. Rose, you see, is the pro-
prietor of the Jim Rose Circus Side-
show, a travelling caiavan of freaks,
human marvels and people who are
just a little off. For example, one
of the longest-running Rose per-
formers is Mr. Lifto, who lifts heavy
things with various pierced body
parts. Like his nipples, ear lobes,
nose and tongue. But it's his penis
lifting that he's most proud of.
Then there's Matt the Tube, a
pharmacist from Seattle who forces
various nauseating substances into
his stomach, then pumps it back
out. If you're lucky, he'll offer you
a glass of his tasty bile beer.
The troupe also features the
Armenian Rubber Man (who can
pass his body through an unstrung
tennis racket), the Enigma (sword
whose entire body is tattooed with
an interlocking blue jigsaw puzzle),
and Bebe the Circus Queen (Rose's
wife, who lies topless on a bed of
nails and lights fluorescent bulbs
by passing electric currents
through her body).
Rose himself pounds nails up
his nose, swallows razor blades,
functions as a human dart board,
and puts his face in broken glass
while people stand on his head.
He's also a master escape artist
and, apparently, a pretty darn good
Yes, Jim Rose, who has dis-
gusted audiences and raised the
hackles of conservative public offi-
cials worldwide, has gone and writ-
ten himself a book. It's called Freak
Like Me: Inside the Jim Rose Cir-
cus Sideshow. As you can no doubt
guess, it's biographical.
File this one under stranger
than fiction; Rose has led a pretty
colorful life. Somehow, though,
he's managed to keep a pretty level
head and a heaithy dose of human-
ity despite the weird, inhuman
things he does-on stage.
Featuring an introduction by
Katherine Dunn, author of the side-
show novel Geek Love and a Rose
frienddevotee, Freak Like Me
seems unusually open and honest
for an auto-biography. Too often,
books like this are self-aggrandiz-
ing, the stories coming off more like

than true-life accounts of things.
The fact that Rose comes off
sounding utterly sincere is doubly
surprising considering his carnival
barker patter and con artist savvy.
But every time I suspected Rose of
self-inflation, he would undercut
himself by revealing some embar-
rassing mistake he made or reveal-
ing the nervous regular guy under-
neath the cocky exterior.
But Rose seems to have been
destined for a life among the freaks
from the start.
"I was born with the world's
most fascinating nose he writes.
"A nose so intriguing, my eyes
couldn't stop looking at it. Which
is to say, in the optical department,
I was cross-eyed
Tortured by his classmates be-
cause of his condition, Rose became
the class clown to deflect the in-
sults. The quick wit he developed
as a child stayed with him even af-
ter his vision was corrected (par-
tially; he still suffers from lazy eye
today), and he uses it to good ef-
fect as barkercrowd control for his
His freak status among his
middle-class peers led Rose to a fas-
cination with circus freaks and hu-
man marvels (people who have
learned strange and dangerous
body manipulation tricks). When he
found himself cast adrift after col-
lege (Rose holds a degree in politi-
cal science from the University of
Arizona), his life-long devotion to
sideshows became a career.
Starting out on open-mic
nights at Seattle coffeehouses,
Rose's fame as a performing freak
grew, and soon other freaks gath-
ered around him like lint.
The stories of those other per-
formers are also told in Freak Like
Me. While the likes of Lifto and the
Torture King (who pierces his body
with dozens of pins and needles
without drawing blood) don't get

Vander Ark says at the first level of his
performance on Pop Smear. The song
is called "Pretty For You and judg-
ing by the direction the song was tak-
ing, I knew exactly what I was about
to hear.
The Verve Pipe, led by Vander Ark
on vocals and acoustic guitar, A J. Dun-
ning on lead guitar, Brad Vander Ark
on bass, and Don Brown on drums,
will show you why they are RCA's new-
est onslaught Characterized by well-
written lyrics and an alternativepop
undertone, Vander Ark and the boys
feel as if they are on top of the world.
With songs like "Victoria that
refer to the sweet taste of victory, and
"The River which was written by
drummer Donny Brown, they show
signs of a very promising band. On the
other hand, their sound seems to be
focused on the same thing that most
other artists on the RCA record label
are focused on. It's a fixated sound that
works, but one has to ask if the artist
are really being true to themselves or
just hoping for some extra cash and
beer on the side. I don't see that in
this band. What I do see in this band
is pride and enthusiasm, despite who
or what they might sound like.
In every band there is a shining
star, and of course Vander Ark quali-
fies for that ranking here. But when
you have musicians in a band that rise
above the rest one has to ask if every-
one else is living up to their full poten-
tial. The guitar on this album speaks
very clearly and presents a strong mes-
sage. The bass is weak and needs to be
more present at times. Brown also did
a good job keeping time on drums.
He also wrote the strongest song
on the album, called "Is It Worth It?"
The song is very melodic and Vander
Ark's vocal tone is a perfect match. But
the song's message is what makes it

John Travolta is going to fill the-
aters with his glory once again tomor-
row, when Broken Arrow, his first hon-
est to goodness action film, opens. But
this time, the real star won't be Mr.
Saturday night but another man named
John, director John Woo.
If you don't recognize the name,
don't be ashamed. Woo is one of
cinema's premier action directors, but
the bulk of his work has been done in
Hong Kong. Still, Woo's out-of-this-
world action sequences and his visual
mastery have broken into the Ameri-
can underground. Thanks to video
stores that carry foreign imports. Woo
has received great word of mouth and
praising reviews. Now even major video
chains like Blockbuster carry dubbed
versions of Woo films.
John Woo has had a highly suc-
cessful filmmaking career in Hong
Kong, a career that is affecting even
America's hottest and newest filmmak-
ers. Robert Rodriguez has admitted
that John Woo inspired his vision on
Desperado and Quentin Tarantino's
enthusiasm tor China's action films
owes much debt to Woo. In more ways
than one, Woo has redefined a genre
that Hollywood thought it had mas-
Woo's films are many and varied,
and I must admit I have not seen them
all, most notably his A Better Tomor-
row series. While Woo does specialize
in the action genre, his films offer more
than simply the good guy blowing away
the bad guy. His films are complex, as
are his characters. Bullet in the Head
is a particularly intriguing film because
it follows a group of young men whose
involvement with organized crime
leads them into the hells of war-torn
Vietnam. While this film is not Woo's
hardcore statement on Vietnam (he
made a film entitled Heroes Shed No
Tears to tackle that issue), it still pre-
sents an ugly picture of a time the
world would like to forget.
Bullet :n the Head, as unsettling
as it may be, is still an engaging and
exciting action film. But it is an action
film with John Woo's stamp of ap-
proval. The fine line between hero and
villain is not so clear, the violence is
unrelenting, and the conclusion is not
so happy. Any film that has one of its
main characters go mad because he
has a bullet lodged in his head is worth
a glance.
Arguably, Woo's two most popu-
lar films are The Killer and Hard
Boiled, both of which star Hong Kong's
top action star, Chow Yun Fat The
Killer stands out as a revisionist ac-
tion film. The basic plot may seem fa-
miliar, the good cop tracking down the
bad bounty hunter. But this is a film
where the good guy actually connects
and identifies with the bad guy. This
is a film where the bad guy actually
has a code of honor and will die trying
to stick to that code.
And. staying true to all that is
Woo, this is a film where the story's
resolution is not wrapped up in nice
package, as our heroes run off with
their true loves to live happily forever.
If anything, The Killer is the antith-
esis of Hollywood's notion of a "good"
action flick.
In many ways, Hard Boiled is simi-
lar in structure to The Killer. There is
a similar herovillain dynamic, and the
ending would make mainstream Hoi-

lywood shiver. But in Hard Boiled,
things are complicated by the fact that
the "villain" is an undercover cop who,
while not turning bad, has gone too
far to protect his cover. Hard Boiled
and The Killer also both share Woo's
over-the-top action.
Unlike many contemporary direc-
tors, Woo has mastered the slow-mo-
tion effect He knows when and where
to slow the action down in order to
achieve an exhilarating sensation.
Watching Chow Yun Fat leap over
tables in slow motion while blasting
two guns at once is watching an artist
at work. Woo's keen visual sense ma-
jestically captures Yun Fat's masterful
stunts and transforms an ordinary ac-
tion sequence into a filmic work of art
Unfortunately, Woo's American
debut was less than thrilling. While
Hard Target may be the best Jean-
Claude Van Damme movie ever, it was
John Woo's worst The story was thin,
the characters were flat, and Woo's
vision just felt repressed and disjointed.
Woo has admitted that Hard Target
was a disappointment, but he has also
admitted that working in Hollywood
is not like China.
Hopefully, Broken Arrow will
make enough of an impact at the box
office that Hollywood studios will al-
low Woo to cut loose and do what he
does best: create outlandish, unrealis-
tic action flicks that are pure cinematic
adrenaline and pure fun.

what it is.
"Is it worth it to wait forever, when
you find out there's really not much
you can say?" Vander Ark sings. He
delivers his drummer's words as if they
were his own. This is a song about ask-
ing questions, the question at hand
being "Does it really matter?"
The music on this disc is easy to
relate to and indulge in. There is no
doubt that this band will be a force in
the years to come. Judging by how fast
they have moved over the past couple
of years, they already are a force to be
reckoned with.
Pop Smear is everything it is in-
tended to be: a pop undertone camou-

(shown religiously all over the air-
waves), should be placed on a space
capsule and shot into the sun.
Watching Jaws on TV deadens its
original impact and genuinely an-
noys me.
9. Firewalker. Chuck Norris
and Louis Gossett, Jr. attempt to do
a humorous Raiders rip-off, and in-
stead a spectacular crash and burn
occurs. Chuck and Louis star as two
soldiers-of-fortune going for that last
"big score They hook up with the
lovely Melody Anderson, whose
other claim to fame is playing Dale
Arden in Flash Gordon (a movie that
barely missed this list), to truck all
over Mexico in search of Aztec gold.
Gossett looks embarrassed, and
Norris has the comedic timing of a
wing-nut. Stinky, but it's kinda fun
watching Chuck play stupid.
8. Urban Cowboy. Now that
John Travolta is back in the public
eye again, the TV Powers have
dredged up this big hit (God knows
why) from the very early '80s. Here,
Travolta, Debra Winger and Scott
Glenn jump on the big country mu-
sic bandwagon in this story of ur-
ban rednecks lookin' for love in all
the wrong places. Travolta dances a
Texas two-step, but it's "lean's su-
per-redneck performance that makes
this worth watching at all.
7. The Blue Lagoon. Buh-whu-
Haaaaaa Hahahahahahaha
HAhahaha Two kids grow up to be
half-nekkid teens on a deserted is-
land. With Christopher Atkins and
Brooke Shields. Not to be confused
with the movie Paradise, starring
Willie Aames and Phoebe Cates.
That one goes more like - Tee-
Heeehahahahah Heeeehahahah
6. Bloodsport. Jean-Claude Van
Damme's first big hit, and a really
cool, stupid little movie. The Muscles
from Brussels plays real guy Frank
Dux (who was also a consultant and
fight coordinator for the film), who
fought and won the Kumate, a nasty,
illegal bare-knuckles fight in Hong
Kong. Stupendous fighting scenes,
wacky slow-mo and piss-poor acting
help make this a classic sitting-
around-drinking flick. Look for
Forrest Whitiker in an early role.
5. Cobra and Over the Top. I
was in a bind as to which of these
two Sylvester Stallone "films" are
worse examples of filmmaking. First
we have Cobra, with Stallone play-
ing a cop named Cobretti who has
to protect a beautiful witness (the
wretched Bridgitte Nielson, his wife
at the time) from death. Wow, how
original. On the other hand, we have
Top, which may be the only film ever
made to glamorize the world of
professsional arm wrestling. That's
right, 1 said "arm" wrestling. At least
Cobra is watchable.
4. Zapped! A teen sex comedy
with a twist! Scott Baio plays a high
school science genius (?) who
developes a serum that gives him
telekinetic powers that he uses to
try to get into Heather Thomas'
pants. I found this movie really
funny when 1 was 12 or 13.1 am no
longer 12 or 13, but sometimes feel
like it and will watch this. TV edit-
ing cuts out the nude scenes (bring-
ing up the question "What's the
point?"), but Thomas uses stunt
breasts anyway. Both Baio and
Aames use their own breasts.
3. Conan the Destroyer. This
awful sequel to the always-cool
Conan the Barbarian (itself a fre-
quent TV visitor) grates on me be-
cause of its untapped potential to
be cool and its need to dumb down
for a PG audience. Even Arnold,
Graeme Jones, Mako, Tracey Walter
and Wilt Chamberlain can't save this
trash. A few cool scenes make this
pretty good noise filler during home-
work. Destoyer's sister film, Red
Sonja, is even worse, and on even
more often.
2. Masters of the Universe. An
entertaining little movie (tons bet-
ter than the cartoons) starring
Dolph Lungren as He-Man, Frank
Langella as a great Skeletor, and a
young Courtney Cox as an Earth-
ling trying to keep Skeletor from
taking over. This movie benefits
from an inherent wackiness brought
through by melodramatic acting.
And now, number one with a
1. The Beastmaster. 1 have
seen this movie so many times I
can't count, but it's still kind of
quirky-cool. Written and directed by
Don Coscarelli, this movie features
Marc Singer as Dar of the Emorites.
Dar is sworn to avenge his people,
who were slain by the Jun Hordes.
Leading the Jun secretly is the high
priest Maax (a vicious Rip Torn),
who controls the entire land of
Ahric. Throw in exCharlie's An-
gels" babe Tanya Roberts and John
Amos (the dad on "Good Times") as
a sergeant-at-arms.
This one has it all: Conan riffs,
swords, greased nude bodies, demon
cows giving birth to babies, sexy
witches, demonic S & M leatherboys,
spraypainted tigers, ferrets and, of
course, the hawk-cam! Any movie
with J.Js dad and a demon cow au-
tomatically rates at least a two, so
you know this ones a winner!
Fess up, you know you've
watched these movies! And once we
all admit to these kind of things, the
closer we'll all be to Nirvana.

Rose's tales of his troupe's rise

night and it was just perfect"
Another interesting aspect of this
production of "Dark of the Moon" is
the use of "line-out singing some-
thing which was used consistently in
churches of the time. In this practice,
the preacher would call out a line of
a hymn before it was to be sung,
thereby eliminating the need for hym-
nals in a church where most of the
parishioners couldn't read anyway.
How does a modern cast prepare
to sing music that is older by many
years than they are themselves? Much
work was done practicing dialects and
the cast watched videos about the
Appalachian people, as well as listen-
ing to actual recordings of church
services of the time.
"John supplied us with audio
taper and we actually had a record-
ing of ari actual church service that
was taped in the early 1900s. It's just
amazing to hear the line-out singing.

Someone to look for during the
show is Mike "Lightnin Wells, a lo-
cal professional musician who will be
playing the banjo. Wells has worked
with East Carolina Playhouse before,

1 knew him as a guitar player, and we
had plenty of guitarists. So I was call-
ing around asking for banjo players
and the fellow at Greenville guitar said

I called him up Shearin said.
With such a collaboration of tal-
ents, this production is sure to be a
delight for music as well as theater
lovers. "Dark of the Moon" is sure to
be one of the most interesting plays
of the East Carolina Playhouse sea-
son. Anyone who is interested in
North Carolina history should defi-
nitely reserve a good seat. Even if
you've seen the show before, you

Conference race

Pirates lose two
conference home
games in a row
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
It was raining three's in Minges
Coliseum, unfortunately it wasn't help-
ing ECU.
Monday's game against George
Mason was ECU'S second defeat in a
row. The Pirates had already lost to
the Patriots Jan. 6, 76-80 at GMU.
ECU lost again, but this time the mar-
gin was bigger.
"We gave up 92 points and that
says it all Head Coach Joe Dooley
said. "They did whatever they wanted
to do to us and it's embarrassing to
the program. We just did not play up
to our potential
ECU was seeking revenge after
losing to American on Saturday, which
ended their home winning streak.
GMU scored the first basket The
Patriots' George Redd hit a baseline
jumper to open the game 0-2. How-
ever, Othello Meadows, who going
into the game led the league in three
point goal percentage, opened up
ECU'S scoring drive with his trade-
mark three.
Without anyone knowing it, that
would be ECU'S only lead 3-2. GMU
quit ly bounced back and went on a
12-0 run to make the score 3-15.
The Pirates had trouble all night
getting the ball down low because
GMU was playing a tight zone defense.
"We had mismatches down low
that we didn't utilize Deron Rippey
ECU could not get in the swing
of things in the first half, and only hit
34 percent of their shots.
GMU's biggest lead was 15 after
a Curtis McCants jumper.

score, so would the Patriots. During
the first half, each team kept trading
off baskets, with GMU still leading.
With 10:52 left Tim Basham hit
his second three pointer in the first
half, but GMUs' freshman sensation
Jason WiHiams hit two three's in a row
and sank a lay up to put GMU ahead
The Pirates battled back late in
the first half and cut the lead to three,
35-38, after another Meadows three
But during the last minute ECU
committed three fouls that sent GMU
to the line. After making five of six
shots, GMU went into the locker room
with a 10 point, 3545 lead.
Meadows scored 11 points in the
first half, Tony Parham added eight
and Basham had six.

It's a new chapter in Lady Pirate basketball and Junior Guard
Justine Allpress is helping to lead the way.
Allpress, a 5'6" guard from Barton-Under-Needwood, England,
became ECU'S all-time leading three point shooter, when she hit
two three pointers against William & Mary.
She entered the game with 87 career three pointers, just one
shy from tying the record held by Gaynor O'Donnell. now an assis-
tant coach for ECU.
Allpress is also one of four Lady Pirates listed in the CAA's
statistical categories. She is fifth leading scorer, sixth free throw
shooter and the top three point shooter in the conference.
Allpress hails' from John Taylor High School. While at John
Taylor, she helped lead her team to four National Championships,
averaged 25 points a game as a senior, and was the top scorer in the
European School Championship in France in 1993, where her team
finished sixth out of 15.
Allpress' talents don't stop there. She also represented her dis-
trict track team, running the 100, 400 and 800 meters, holding her
district's record in the 400 meter. As if that's not enough, she also
played field hockey, tennis and netball.
Although Allpress participated in all these other sports, bas-
ketball was and is her favorite.
"I used to play tennis and some other sports a lot, but I gave
those all up because I enjoyed basketball and the concept of it be-
ing a team sport Allpress said.
While at ECU, Allpress is majoring in geography with a minor
in sociology. She said she would eventually like to be in public rela-
tions back home in England.
She enjoysibasketball and hopes that soon, with all the positive
changes Coach Donovan has made, that the Lady Pirates will be-
come ranked as one of the top teams in their conference. She likes
to spend time with her friends and every once in a while, she likes
to take time out for herself.
Look for Allpress and the Lady Pirates who are 7-10 for the
season and 3-5 in the CAA, as they prepare for a five day road trip
that started Wednesday. ECU will first compete against Old Domin-
ion followed by Virginia Commonwealth and James Madison.
The Lady Pirates next home game is Feb. 16 against the Patri-
ots of George Mason. Tip off is set for 7 p.m.
Down, down they go.

We all know how vital fan sup-
port is for athletic teams. However,
support is just as important on the
road as it is at home.
The Student Pirate Club, who
dubs itself "The Team Behind the
Team is sponsoring an away trip to
ECU's arch rival UNC-W. The men's
basketball game will be played Sat-
urday, Feb. 24 in Trask Coliseum in
Wilmington. The game will begin at
7 p.m.
Chris Libert, who is doing an in-
ternship with the SPC, said this is
an excellent trip for students and the
general public.
"What we have is a trip orga-
nized for our students, but is offered
to anyone in the community or affili-
ated with the university or commu-
nity Libert said.
The bus, which is being provided
by the ECU transit in order to keep
costs down, will leave Minges Coli-
seum at 3 p.m. From there the bus
will proceed to Jungle Rapids where
a pre-game social will take place with
food and drinks. After the game, the
bus will return to Greenville at ap-
proximately midnight.
The social will begin at 5:30 p.m.
and end at 7 p.m. After the social,
fans will be bussed over to the game
which begins at 7:30 p.m. The SPC
has reserved a special section in or-
der to allow all the fans to sit to-
gether. The fan support can only help
when the Pirates take the court in
"Having some more voices behind
them (ECU) other than just UNC
Wilmington's voices would be a great
support not only for our team but for
our bench Libert said.
The cost of the trip is $25, but
that includes game ticket, transpor-
tation and the pre-game social.
TEVA and
50 OFF
Harris Teeter
Shopping Center
But Libert quickly points out that
that is a reasonable price. If fans didn't
choose this package deal, it would
probably end up costing more. A game
ticket costs $15, the expense of gas
and food could easily surpass $25.
But that price is not set in stone.
The $25 is based on 30 people going.
Therefore the more people there are
to go on the trip, the cheaper the cost
will be.
When ECU first met with UNC-
W on Jan. 27 in Minges, the Seahawks
brought two bus ioads of fans. Be-
cause this is such a big in-state rivalry
for the two, it is important for fans to
travel to Wilmington to support the
"There are only two teams in the
CAA from N.C one of course being
ECU and one being Wilmington, so
there are a lot of bragging rights
This will be the only trip the SPC
sponsors to any of this season's bas-
ketball games.
Seating is based on a first come
first serve basis. The last day to sign
up and pay for the trip will be Friday,
Feb. 16.

Seahawks find new home in L.A.
(AP) - Ken Behring says he has a
dream, and it's not just about making
more money. At least one King County,
Wash leader sees it much differently.
Behring said he never felt welcome
in Seattle from the day he purchased
the Seahawks 7 12 years ago, but it
was never his intention to move the
team until recently.
And that only happened, he said,
when he became convinced the
Kingdome was an unsafe place to play
and King County refused to do anything
about it
So now, he's committed to bring-
ing his team to the Los Angeles area
"I have a dream for Los Angeles
Behring said in an interview Tuesday.
"That dream is to play our games in
the finest state-of-the-art football sta-
dium in the world.
"I've made enough money. I'm
looking for something more than mak-
ing money. It's a great opportunity to
own something down here, build the
kind of complex thaf s never been built"
In Washington, D.C King County
Executive Gary Locke told lawmakers
Tuesday that Behring's primary concern
Is, indeed, about finances, not player and
fan safety.
Behring is "trying to find the high-
est bidder who will build him a new sta-
dium with luxury sky boxes and club
seating Locke told the House Judiciary
The panel took testimony on pro-
fessional sports franchise relocations.
Within the past year, five NFL teams
have moved or announced plans to
"Enough is enough Locke said.
"This madness in football of abandon-
ing loyal fans and communities simply
must stop.
"If order is not restored, more lo-
cal go ?rnments will be coerced into
paying hundreds of millions of tax dol-
lars out of fear of losing their teams
Behring, 67, said he hopes his team
has its own practice facility ready within
a year, but plans to set up shop at the
former Rams Park in the meantime.
"Hopefully we'll have an agreement

"This is a tremendous loss to our
team Dooley said. "Our rotation is
now different, we're more shallow now.
We just really lose a lot of our depth
without him, but we've got to move
on. Other teams in this conference have
had big injuries this season as well;
hopefully we can just get him back for
the latter part of the season
As for Fudd, the senior forward
from Chantilly, Va. will miss roughly
the same amount of time predicted for
Grooms. Hamrick believes that the
length of Fudd's suspension could of
been linked to the estimated time off
the court for Grooms.
"I mean, here we have a player for
us who will be out for two or three
weeks Hamrick said. "There's no rea-
son that he should have to be in the
hospital or on the bench hurt while
the other individual is still playing. I
just think that we're sending out the
wrong message to the young men who
are competing in college sports if we
don't keep the penalties in-line with
the actions
Fudd served the first game of his
suspenison against UNC-Wilmington
last Monday night in which the Eagles
lost 73-58.
Fudd will also be suspended
against William & Mary on Saturday,
Va. Commonwealth on Tuesday, non-
conference opponent Iona on Febru-
ary 15th, and George Mason on Feb-
ruary 17th.
Fudd earned First-Team All-CAA
honors in 1994 before sitting out the
majority of last season with a knee in-
jury. Fudd is the Eagles leading scorer
(16.8 ppg) and rebounder (6.3 rpg) on
the season.
American University has decided
to appeal the suspension to the CAA
conference's athletic directors, with a
decision likely to be made later on this

percent GMU shot from the line.
The second half would prove not
much better for the Pirates. GMU
jumped out quickly with a Williams'
slam dunk. ECU cut the lead to seven
with 17:36 after Kerner made one of
two free throws.
The Pirates struggled in the sec-
ond half and the closest they came to
the Patriots' lead was seven. ECU
came that close four different times,
only to watch GMU slowly pull away.
The second time they came that
close was after a Meadows' three
pointer to make it 57-64.
However, ECU'S luck soon
changed. During the Pirates' next
possession, Kerner picked up his sec-
ond personal foul and for the second
game in a row, he picked up another
technical. After that incident, GMU
went on a 7-0 run and the game was
now 57-71.
The Pirates tried to cut the lead
to single digits, but GMU seemed un-
ECU lost the battle 78-92. GMU
shot 50 percent form the field and
three point range and 71 percent from
the line.
ECU shot 42, 33 and 75 percent
from the field, three point arc and free
throw line respectively.
The story of the night was GMU's
Williams, who hit eight three point-
ers, which is an arena record, to fin-
ish the night with 37 points. Team-
mate McCants added 24 points for the
"You got one kid who has 37, one
has 24 Dooley said "They just did
whatever they wanted to do. They got
good looks, they made shots. It wasn't
anything we hadn't seen before or
anything we hadn't defended before.
It was simply a lack of execution
Basham hit six three's of his own,
Meadows added four and Parham hit
two, but it wasn't enough.
The three leading scorers for ECU
were Meadows with 21, Basham with
20 and Parham with 13. Kerner was
held to five points for the night.
Leading rebounders for the game
were Von Bryant with nine, Kerner
with eight and Basham, Vic Hamilton
and Rippey each with five.
The loss drops ECU to 7-4 in the
conference and 14-6 overall. ECU is
currently tied with UNC-W for third
place, behind VCU and ODU.
"We have a lot of work to do to
get better Dooley said.
The Pirates have spent this week
preparing for VCU.
"We just have to stay strong and
have a positive attitude and worry
about VCU Rippey said.
The Pirates will be on the road
this Saturday against VCU. ECU de-
feated VCU once already this year 73-
72. That game will begin at 7 p.m. and
will be televised.
