ing packet that I wrote, and learned
about many student concerns Nix
said, "I have successfully worked with
administration and students to get
things done. I want to keep our edu-
cation affordable and improve student
"Next year, I believe we need to

B-Glad celebrates first
annual pride festival
AaaMant Newa Editor
In order to raise awareness and promote student fel-
lowship, ECU's organization of Hisexuals, Cays, Lesbians
and Allies for Diversity (li-CLAD) has announced the cel-
ebration of their first annual Pride Week.
March 25-29 has been designated as a week of infor-
mation, conversation and communication on campus in
an effort to open the minds of the people in our commu-
nity, said Rich Elkins, male co-chair of ECU's B-CI.AD
"Other universities have had this sort of thing in the
past Elkins said, adding that the celebration varies from
place to place, depending on the level of involvement o(
btudents. "This will be our first, so we're not doing as
much as other universities
Elkins said N. C. State University had Candace
Cingrich, the much talked- about sister of Newt Gingrich,
to speak at their last Pride Week celebration.
"We don't have any well-known speakers this year, but
hopefully it (our event) will grow Elkins said.
Monday was set aside as a day for speakers bureaus to
visit the residence halls. The organization has a series of
events planned for the remainder of the week.
Today, there will be an information table set up beside
the student stores from 11 a,m. to 1 p.m. Students will be
able to pick up flyers with more information about the week
and the group.
"There will also be a display table of symbols with rain-
bow flags, buttons and magazines, just as another way of
making people aware Elkins said. The symbols on display
will not be for sale.
On Wednesday, the campus will receive a visit from
Down East Pride (DEP), whom students may remember from
the DEP festival back in September. The group will be talk-
ing about their voter registration campaign.
H-C1.AD encourages everyone to wear blue jeans on
Thursday to support equal rights and protection for all people

Professorship stood out among the
usual business of the ECU Board of
Trustees meeting last Friday at 10 am.
in the great room of Mendenhall Stu-
dent Center (MSC).
Robert A. Ward, chair of the ECU
Board of Trustees and co-chair of the

all three of the university's fund-rais-
According to information distrib-
uted at the meeting, the ECU founda-
tion raised $23 million, the medical
foundation raised $24.5 million and
the Pirate Club raised $18 million.
"Nine point five million dollar
of (the money raised by the Pirate
Club) is for renovation of the Dowdy-
Ficklen Stadium Lanier aid.
The remaining funds were used
for the Pirate Club and for port
scholarships, he said.
Lanier said most of the money
raised by the medical foundation is
being used for endowment and it
invested so that the interest can be
used for scholarships, professorship
or specific program.
Over half of the $23 million
raited by the ECU foundation i also
being used for endowments, Lanier
"We added over 310 new merit
scholarships, and we increased the
size of over 200 scholarships he said.
Lanier said the goal is to have
25 major merit scholarship awarded

This summer, ECU's purple and gold spirit will bloom on a landscape which
was completed here in Greenville in February.
The Greenville Community Appearance Commission was given a grant for
$30,000 last year. The commission is responsible for the appearance around
Greenville roads, sidewalks and buffer yards in business districts. Each year the
N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) gives funding to all counties in the
state. The majority of the funding comes from personalized license plates.
Ivan Brown, an ECU alumnus as well as a member of the Community
Appearance Commission and chairman of the Landscape Subcommittee, tried
to get the commission to do a purple and gold landscape for 15 years. Brown has
gotten his wish.
Sixty Catauba Crete Myrtles were planted in February beginning at the city
limits near Pitt Community College and ending almost a half a mile ahead by the
Carolina East Mall. The trees will bloom a dark purple for three months span-
ning from July to September. The trees have an underplant of gold Day Lilies at
The trees are planted on the median according to NCDOT standards. The
ECU purple and gold landscape will be in bloom for the first home football game.
Architects drew up blueprints for the landscape, and they were approved at
the commission's meeting last October.
Brown's idea for the landscape had to do with his relationship with former
ECU Chancellor, Dr. Leo Jenkins. Brown said he promised Jenkins that one day
in his honor, he would do a purple and gold landscape.
"This has not been easy Brown said. "It has taken 15 years to talk people
into the idea of a purple and gold landscape, which is hard to believe
Brown said Jenkins was a major figure at ECU back when the university
was called East Carolina College. He
petitioned to get ECU state univer-
sity status and to keep ECU's name
separate and not UNC at Greenville.
Brown said Jenkins was respon-
sible for getting ECU's medical school
and was behind the enlargement of
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. He retired in
1978 and passed away Jan 14,1989.
Brown said Jenkins is said to have
been the driving force behind ECU.
After he retired it was said that his
replacement had to bleed purple and
sweat gold. This landscape has the
same meaning to all Pirate fans.
"My debt is now paid to Leo just
as I promised it would be done Brown
�"��"��'�"�� The city's landscapes have always
bloomed colors like red and white in the past Brown said that he does not
understand why the city never went with the theme colors of the university
He said this landscape supports the university, and he hopes that this is a
start of better things to come.
"It has taken 15
years to talk
people into the
idea of a purple

In lieu of two rape cases reported the week before
Spring Break, university officials have clarified students'

A recent update in Appalachian
State University's (ASU) search and sei-
zure policy allows campus officials to
search students' rooms without a war-
rant or the student's permission.
The policy was updated in January
in response to an increase in drug use,
said Dr. Gregory Blimling, vice chancel-
lor for student development at ASU.
"We've received a number of com-
plaints (about drug use) from students
and RAs on campus Blimling said.
He said he held meetings with
groups of RA.s on campus to explore
"The unanimous concern they had
was that we needed to do something to
address the increased use of drugs on
campus Blimling said. "Our freshman
survey also indicated that the students
coming out of high school now were
using drugs more than ever before
He said there was a four percent
increase in the number of students us-
ing drugs in the year before they enter
Blimling said student response to
the policy update has been mixed.
"Some students have been upset
and they feel it's been an infringement
upon their right to privacy he said.
He said other students have re-
sponded positively, and are glad that the
policy was updated. He said re-applica-
tions for campus housing are up 10 per-
cent following the change.
"I would be very concerned if po-
lice were doing random searches or do-
ing them based on flimsy information,
but that is not the case he said.
Blimling said there have been 18
searches of students' rooms since the
change and drugs have been found in all
"Many people assume that living (on
campus! is the same as living in the pub-
lic, but it is not" Blimling said.
Blimling said that living on campus
is a voluntary action in which students
sign a contract agreeing to live under
certain rules and regulations. He said all

out unwarranted searches of students'

health center does provide rides to the
hospital and a nurse to accompany stu-

Board of Trustees meeting.
According to a press release from
the ECU News Bureau, a major gift
from University of North Carolina
President C. D. Spangler Jr. is provid-
ing for an endowed professorship to
bring world-class performers to cam-
pus in the School of Music. The en-
dowment will be at the level of
$500,000 and will include $167,000
in matching state funds. The profes-
sorship will be filled for the first time
in the fall 1997 semester.
"The new professorship will
permit the university to attract an
� outstanding musician to interact with
and challenge students and faculty to
even greater levels of musical achieve-
ment" said Chancellor Richard Eakin.
Brad Foley, dean of the School
of Music, said the professorship will

of one to three years, allowing ECU
to bring a number of outstanding per-
formers to campus over the years.
The professor will teach both
undergraduate and graduate students
as well as perform, Foley said.
In other business at the board
meeting, the ways to improve the reg-
istration process and the status of four
property purchases were discussed.
Richard Brown, associate vice
chancellor for business affairs, said the
board is currently in the process of
getting appraisals on four property
The Miller-Dickerson property and
the Travathron property are both lo-
cated on Charles Boulevard, bordering
the athletic fields. Brown said. He said
the buildings are currently being leased
by Allied Health and if purchased, will
be used for academic or administrative
The Gescorp Capital property is a
building located on the block sur-
rounded by Reade, Cotanche, Third
and Fourth Streets, Brown said. He
said this property, if purchased, will be
used for administrative office space.
The Roberson property, a private
home, is located at the corner of
Lawrence and 10th Streets. Brown
said. He said the purchase of this prop-
erty is being pursued for construction
of Library Drive, a road leading to the
front of the new library.
Blimling said that universities have
the right to arrest students, but whether
or not the evidence found in unwarranted
searches can be used in criminal hear-
ings has yet to be decided by the courts.

sity housing services at ECU, said ECU

thanks to WZMB
for our softball
A few dedicated employees of TEC and WZMB took
a little time out of their busy schedules this weekend
to engage in some good old-fashioned fun. They met
on a softball field to renew a rivalry that had almost
been forgotten, and even though they were a few play-
ers short at times, they managed to play five innings.
Some players were definitely not candidates for
the major league (the chief is out of shape), but oth-
ers were just marvelous. It didn't matter though, the
point is they cared enough to step up to the plate for
campus media, and to play their hearts out for their
The score isn't important, but it's safe to say we
creamed WZMB. TEC would like to thank WZMB for
taking the time to set up this match, and we'd like to
give you the chance to even the score sometime. TEC
would also like to thank recreation services for giving
us a field on such short notice and providing us with
the equipment to play.
Constantly working at bringing students the latest
information and sounds can be overwhleming at times
and it was nice to see this softball match actually come
together after only a few weeks of planning.
An ode to softball:
The day was nice and the teams were hot,
Field number two was the spot,
Leftwich gathered his ducks in a row,
Zion had TEC players in tow,
Pond pitched and Ross held third base,
Oldham with that hat, we couldn't see your face,
Paiz was at first and missed just a few,
did the Dillinator have a clue?
We all had fun, despite the score,
Next year let's try to play a little more.

$96 buys hunting license
Once again students at ECU find
themselves as the victims of high
prices and poor service.
Every year parking and traffic
services send the students a flier to
purchase a $96 parking sticker.
For the price a student pays for
a sticker, you would think parking
and traffic services would provide
students with adequate parking and
properly maintained parking lots. Un-
fortunately, students do not receive
any of these benefits.
Freshmen students are provided
three parking lots. The two are lo-
cated downtown and are in sad con-
dition. For $96, one would assume
students would receive a nicely paved
lot Instead students get a gravel lot,
and a grass lot
I remember when I was a fresh-
man praying every time it rained that
my car would not get stuck in the
mud and having to call my friends to
help come and push me out Many
times my prayers were not answered
and my car would get stuck.
I guess freshmen should not
complain about parking downtown
because if they are not fortunate
enough to get into the lot they are
forced to park at Allied Health. Stu-

dents must then catch a bus to get
to campus and if the buses are no
longer running, they get to enjoy a
nice long stroll.
Being an upper classmen does
not mean you are treated better by
parking and traffic services.
Residents who live in the cen-
tral and west area of campus have to
fight to get the limited amount of
parking spaces around the residence
halls. Over the years, residents have
watched spaces being taken away by
staff parking. Most residents find
themselves having to walk quite a dis-
The students of ECU who park
on campus are victims. We are forced
to pay exceedingly high prices for lim-
ited and poorly maintained parking,
traffic and parking services cannot
complain that they do not receive
enough money from the students.
Last year, students witnessed a $26
increase for a parking sticker.
With the money parking and
traffic services receives, they should
offer students paved parking lots and
parking spaces at a relatively close
distance to where they live. Maybe it
is time that the staff at parking and
traffic services learn to budget their
money and do a little better planning
If they cannot provide an improve-
ment in the parking then lower the
price of a sticker.
! know as a student I find $96
to be a little steep for parking. If I
received parking that did not require
me to put on hiking boots every time
that I went to my car, I do not be-
lieve I would have such a problem.
Traffic and parking services
needs to realize that students are a
very important part of their job and
it is about time they stood up and
took notice of the student's needs.

Student supports NIX
To the Editor,
Over the past two years I wit-
nessed the evolution of the Student
Government Association from an or-

funding student groups to one that
has become a loud voice for the con-
cerns of the student body. SGA today
possesses a large, influential role in
policy making and decisions regard-
ing the future and direction of our
As ECU faces a critical juncture
in its history, we, the student body,
have the opportunity to further ex-
pand our impact university wide. It is
our duty to elect representatives who
will convey direct messages to admin-
istration regarding our goals and pri-
orities and improve the university for
the collective good.
One person who has played an
integral role in projects pursued by
SGA is Angie Nix. Throughout her
entire academic career Angie served
her fellow students in various capaci-
ties including class officer and cur-
rently as student body treasurer. She
created the organization funding
packets and serves as a direct liaison
for student groups in matters regard-
ing student activity fees disseminated
by SGA. Her immense experience as
a student leader and broad knowledge
of East Carolina University render her
capable to be a highly effective leader
in the prevailing campus climate.
Angie will most definitely provide a
rational voice for the welfare of all
students. Bring your student ID and
vote for Angie Nix, SGA president, on
Wednesday, March 27.

Candidate speaks out
To the Editor,
A recent opinion column in TEC
suggested that the upcoming student
government elections have failed to
inform the voters of the positions of
those running and what the candi-
dates can do for ECU students. The
election is very important to me. I
want to increase student awareness of
the issues which I believe are impor-
tant to students. I am very willing to
share with anyone where I stand and
what my reasons are for running for
office. This is not, however, the ap-
propriate forum to express or debate
I totally agree that the candidates
need to make themselves available to
the electorate through meetings, de-
bates or similar public activities. I, and
those running with me. have met in
formal meetings with members of be-
tween 50 and 75 groups in an effort
to inform them of our positions and
goals. These groups cover the spec-
trum of campus life and include
Fleming Hall Council, the American
Marketing Association, the Graduate
Student Advisory Council, Alpha Ep-
silon Delta (a pre-med group), the
Native American Organization and the
society for Advancement of manage-
ment, to name just a few. We have also
spoken to scores of students on an
individual basis during the 1 12
weeks of campaigning. Finally, we
have agreed to participate in a debate
on WZMB which is scheduled for
Tuesday, March 26 at 8 p.m. I know
that I and those running with me have
put forth a considerable effort to get
our message out, to express our posi-
tions on topics of interest to students,
and to listen to student concerns.
The voting public also has a cer-
tain degree of responsibility if they
wish to cast an informed vote. We
cannot expect each candidate for of-
fice, whether they are running for
Student Government, City Council,
Governor or national office, to make
a personal appearance at our front
door. Each of us has some responsi-
bility to seek out answers to our ques-
tions, to discern the position of the
candidates, and to make a decision
based on the best information we can
I urge each and every one of you
to become informed and to vote

Candidate for SGA president
To the Editor,
Let's pretend for a minute that
as I was sitting in the park a tiny fairy
would float out of the sky and take
rest upon my unsuspecting shoulder.
This fairy would look over at me and
say You have one wish, what can I
do for you master?" A hypothetical
answer I might reply might be, "oh
fairy, I wish that the column in the
paper entitled " Our View" might be
entitled "My View
I do not mean to say that I agree
with what is in this column; I mean
that it is not my view as a member of
TEC staff. Last Thursday an example
of amazing reasoning and logic was
printed in this column about lower-
ing the drinking age and it was printed
under the supposition that it was the
opinion of TEC and all of those in-
This is a curious column as is.
There is no author listed and I believe
that it is written by a member of TEC
editorial board, whoever that is. I
know I should just ask; this is not the
point The first point is that there
should be a name on this column just
like there is on mine. The authors of
this work should have their name next
to their opinion.
Next I think that it is my duty as
a student of this campus, and a mem-
ber of TEC staff to express my opin-
ion regarding this issue, only in part
reacting to the thing printed in
I would like to say that whatever
tone is received from my words, it
should not be interpreted as hostile.
I sometimes tend to sound mean. I
just want to say that I have the ut-
most respect for those who spend
countless hours putting this paper
together. I simply do not agree with
this one aspect of the paper, and more
importantly this last argument
The drinking age is an issue that
needs a new light The same old argu-
ment that has been used for many
years has been used here again. If I
am old enough to do these things
then it should reason that I would be
permitted to do these other things.
This is not proper log
The article in the paper simply
stated the belief that the drinking laws
that exist now are unconstitutional
and silly. Next, the authors went
through the few things that you are
legally permitted to do at the age of
18 in comparison to not being allowed
to drink. You know: voting, military
service, being tried as an adult at 18
and finally, being of legal age to get
married. This last one I won't even go
into since the divorce rate is like what
50 percent or some insane number
like that Things that make you go
Any way the logic goes like this:
If you can get shot you can drink. If
you can legally marry, you can drink,
if you are an adult as a criminal, you
can drink. That's it That is the logic
that has been the foundation behind
this argument for years. The problem
in this equation is that all of the ele-
ments on each side of the equals sign
are not equal.
If A-B, and B-C, then A does
equal C, but if A and B are only sort
of the same then the equation is
Society, in its amazing expression
of responsibility and control, has
clearly expressed how well it has done
with not driving when drunk. It is
clear that supposedly, the older you
get the smarter you get This is not
always the case, but being young cer-
tainly does not make you any smarter.
All of this comes down to a few
things. First being married and buy-
ing beer have all of nothing to do with
each other. Being in the Army and
buying beer have all of nothing to do
with each other, and your maturity
as a criminal and buying beer have
all of nothing to do with each other
The expression "apples and or-
anges" comes to my mind. You can't
compare different things on the same
playing field and expect them to
match up. You can't say that getting
married and drinking beer equal each
other. It is silly.
To lower the drinking age to 18
would not only decrease the physi-
cal attributes necessary to buy that
40, but it would also increase the
death rate. Eighteen-year-old people
should not drink. Not because of sta-
tistics or past history but because
there are better things to do with
time than that They should not drink
because people get hurt either physi-
cally or emotionally when people
drink, especially in excess. Put your
name on the column and rethink

To the Editor,
As a part of our celebration of
Pride Week, B-Glad (Bisexuals, Gays,
Lesbians & Allies for Diversity) is pro-
moting Thursday, March 28 as Blue
Jeans Day, a day on which we ask that
people wear blue jeans to show sup-

regardless of affectional orientation.
This is an event which CayLesbian
BisexualAllies groups at many uni-
versities hold during their Pride
Weeks to promote awareness and dis-
cussion of issues of equal rights.
Blue jeans were chosen as a sym-
bol because they are a common ob-

no special effort to wear as almost
everyone has them. Those who choose
not to wear blue jeans on this day
must make a conscious effort not to

Hell is a popular topic for many
artists. Dante dabbled around with
his visions of Hell, countless paint-

and, of course, film has been a popu-
lar medium for Hell. In 1987. Clive
Barker conjured his unique vision of
Hell when he made the film
Hellraiser. The nasty nature of that
film gave his Hell an edge that un-

Manic action propels Giant Roho
Imagine a world that is a paradise. Pollution has
been eliminated, people the world over are prosperous,
fulfilled and happy, and everything is really cool and
science-fictiony. It's all perfect, except of course for
those pesky terrorist bombings all over the planet
This is the world of Giant Robo, the most willfully
bizarre Japanese animation (anime) video I've seen in
quite some time. Take the wild creativity of 1960s Mar-
vel Comics and mix it with the strange creative atmo-
sphere of modern anime. Then throw in classic anime
touches like the little boy with the great big robot (see
Gigantor), and you might have some idea what Giant
Robo is like.
Beyond the comparisons, Giant Robo is the story
of young Daisaku Kashami, son of a famous scientist.
Daisaku's dad gave him the control watch that allows
only Daisaku to command Giant Robo, a really huge
robot that looks like a Samurai and lives inside a dis-
used nuclear cooling tower. The orphaned Daisaku is a
member of the Experts of Justice, an elite crime fight-
ing unit attached to an Interpol-like spy organization.
The Experts' opposite number is a group known as the
Magnificent 10, a cartel of criminal masterminds who
sit in control of the terrorist organization Big Fire
(guess who's behind those bombings in paradise).
That's the set-up for the Giant Robo TV series, be-
ing released serially in America on video. Four volumes
are available so far, comprising almost four hours of
animation, and the story isn't over yet!

Now he's put out his own album
on the Mo Wax label with no less
than 30 tracks, a ton of output for a
brand new solo artist Actually the
album was released over a year ago
in Europe, but with only 20 tracks.
For the domestic release, Mark added
10 new tracks and lowered the price.
How's that for dedication to the fans?
Usually, what happens with
other artists is that their album will
be released domestically first, then a
couple of bonus tracks will be added
when it's released overseas and the
price will shoot up for American con-
sumers. That means that if you're a
dedicated fan, you've got to pay
through the nose to be a completist.
Yet the Beasties and all of their com-
rades have always done the opposite
of this by releasing the import singles
first, then dropping the price and
adding more tracks to the domestic
versions when they come out. That
kind of attention to fans is to be com-
That said, I have to say that my
expectations for this album were a
little blown. Those Beasties
instrumentals are some of the best
soul-filled jams I've heard since Isaac
Hayes and Curtis Mayfield had their
day back in the '70s. Given that
Nishita was responsible for a large
part of the sound found there, I fig-
ured his solo albuin would blow me

DURHAM, N.C (AP) - Mitzi Carter
was in the fifth grade when she real-

The identity she assumed in those
years growing up in Houston was black.
More recently, she has begun identify
ing herself as both black and Japanese
- a choice that defies some government
forms, including the U.S. Census.
That idea - that people who have
more than one race in their ancestry
can identify themselves that way -
sounds simple enough. But even people
like Carter, who insist on a multiracial
identification socially, aren't sure when
it comes to the Census.
The Census now offers these ra-
cial choices: white, black, American In-
dian, Asian or Pacific Islander or other.
The Office of Management and Budget,
which decides on race choices on U.S.
government forms, is preparing test
forms for the 2000 Census, some of
which include a multiracial choice.

good, but not overwhelming, says Byrd,
who has published "Interracial Voice"
on the Internet since September 1995.
Jennifer Calloway of Raleigh, the
mother of three racially mixed children,

ows of complete ideas. Don't get me
wrong, these are interesting experi-
ments, they just don't fulfill what it
seems Nishita is capable of and that
is disappointing. Perhaps more credit
should be given to the Beastie Boys
themselves for the work on those ear-
lier instrumentals, because they seem
more like complete songs than any-
thing found on Mark's Keyboard Re-
There are a number of tracks
that stand out above the rest, though.
For instance. "Ba Ba Ba Boom"
sounds like it could have been lifted
straight off the soundtrack for
Superfly the way it moves and
grooves its way around your brain.
And "Poets Walk" is a slice of
pure Gil Scott-Heron jazz from The
Revolution Will Not Be Televised,
complete with a Hubert Laws flute
riff. The sound bites that Nishita
picks out are pure genius, like the
bit of a elementary school film reel
in "Insects Are All Around Us" and
the album's title track, which is
Money Mark's own radio advertise-
ment much like the Beasties' sample
of the "Paul's Boutique" ads.
Despite these stellar moments,
the problems tend to be more than
evident Almost three-fourths of the
tracks begin with a fade in or end
with a fade out, giving the listener a
sense that they are missing some-
The worst comes when Mark
sings, though. He is passable on some
tracks, like "Got My Hand In Your
Head" and "Sometimes You Gotta
Make It Alone where he sounds like
one of the brothers in Ween. How-
ever, on other songs, like "Cry" and
"Seven, Seven, Seven he does a
pathetic impersonation of Lenny
Kravitz that makes you cringe.
Even though this is an uneven
attempt at best, the kind of musical
snippets that Money Mark puts for-
ward here appeal to me at a gut level.
Despite their brevity, the more and
more I listen to these tracks, the
more and more they grow on me,
making me lounge and groove at the
oddest of times.
As Mark says so well in "Don't
Miss the Boat "This may not be
your type of shit But doubtless,
somebody will like this That some-
body is me, but you're forewarned
that it may not be you.

this show is top-notch, rivaling the
best the anime field has to offer. High
speed chases are rendered in full,
crushing detail and the dizzying cam-
era angles give all the giant action a
And this is a story that demands
mythic treatment. Titled "The Night
the Earth Stood Still this story
(hopefully the first of many) is filled
to overflowing with larger-than-life
characters, some pulled from mythol-
ogy from around the world. There's
a seven-foot-tall blue-skinned warrior
woman, an Asian wizard, and a Japa-
nese variation on the Chinese
Drunken Master legend who can take
a swig of saki and breathe fire. Mod-
ern myths include a suave French spy
with super-speed, Giant Robo himself
and (my favorite) an evil German sci-
entist named Franken von Vulgar.
The voice acting in the dubbed
Ame-ican version is okay, no better
or worse than on most anime re-
leases. Early on, the comic relief char-
acters bug their eyes and groan way
too much for my taste, but that
settles down fairly quickly. The big
difference about the acting in Giant
Robo is that, when the action gets
heated, or emotional tension mounts,
everybody shouts and shrieks like
madmen in heat! It's a theater of ex-
cess, where every muscle is strained
and voices rise to wild howls at the
most unexpected moments.
While some may find certain
scenes shrill, these characters scream
and shout and bluster in just the way
I always imagined the Marvel char-
acters doing when I was a kid. When
one of our heroes saves Taiwan by
connecting severed electric cables
with his own body, I'm sent tumbling
back to my childhood, laughing all
The mythic characters populate
a story that's mythic on a different
level. "The Night the Earth Stood
Still" revolves around the creation of
the Shizuma Drive, the cheap, pollu-
tion-free energy source that's
changed the world into paradise.
But all is not as if seems. Evi-
dently, an entire Balkan nation was
destroyed in the drive's creation, and
other dark secrets lurk in the shad-
ows. Mentioning any of this is, of
course, strictly taboo. The Shizuma
Drive has given mankind Utopia, and
the people are devoted to it with a
near-religious fervor. The "dirty" en-
ergy sources cf the past are loathed,
with nuclear power taking on an al-
most Satanic aspect.
This is what keeps Giant Robo
from degenerating into mindless (if
fun) pandemonium. The creators
have presented us with a fascinating
future society and turned it into a
complex playground on which to tell
a wildly melodramatic and kinetically
frantic adventure story.
While the action keeps the story
moving forward and has its own
charms, it's the increasingly compli-
cated backdrop of science and human
motivations that really engages the
The use of dreams, flashbacks
and faulty memory to unravel some
of the series' mysteries is more con-
fusing than it needs to be at first.
All I can say is, stick with it. By vol-
ume three or four, you'll see that
there's a method to the madness and
all will finally be made clear.
Despite its flaws, I can't fault
Giant Robo too much. It's wild,
campy stuff that both thrills me and
lets me laugh at its excess. It won't
be everyone's cup of tea, but if you
ever loved super heroes, give it a
shot. It's screaming good fun.
On a scale of one to 10, Giant
Robo rates a manic nine.

cube for his own nasty purposes. Af-
ter some time in France, the audi-
ence is thrown into modern America,
where another descendent of the toy
maker is haunted by nightmares of
his bloodline's past. Of course, even-
tually some bad things happen and
all Hell breaks loose.
While making a film about a
bloodline that is cursed is intriguing,
it just doesn't work in this film. The
various segments, which aren't done
very well in the first place, don't con-
nect very neatly. Admittedly, 1 was
excited when the film opened in
space. 1 thought I might be treated
to sci-fi horror in the tradition of
Alien. Going back through time not
only disappointed me but also threw
the mood of the film off.
The filmmakers try to squeeze
a large idea into the confines of their
limited imagination. Their concept
could have worked, but their ap-
proach was only typical of many con-
temporary horror films. Instead of
creating horror, the filmmakers sim-
ply try to gross the audience out with
things that Barker has already ex-
posed us to. How many times do I
need to see a man getting his flesh
ripped off with hooked chains before
it loses its appeal? Not many.
Even Pinhead, the head demon
of the Hellraiser fiims, is losing his
touch. While he may have been a
frightening figure in the first film,
he's apparently found a new way to
wreak havoc in this one: boring us
Througnout Bloodline, he
stands around saying such cool lines
as "I will rip your soul apart" and
"Do I look like someone who cares
what God thinks?" While such lines
are neat, I just grew tired of Pinhead
talking and not acting.
At one point, my viewing com-
panion yelled out to the on-screen
Pinhead. "You don't have any tricks
up your sleeve! You're just stalling
That's exactly what the filmmak-
ers were doing. To place this in aca-
demic terms, have you ever had a fif-
teen-page paper to write, but your
ideas only fill up seven pages? In such
a situation, you tend to ramble, use
a lot of quotes aad repeat ideas just
to fill up pages. That's what the mak-
ers of this movie did. They filled up
pages because they didn't really have
anything new to say.
If Barker's franchise is running
dry, then I say let it die. Barker needs
a new product to work with anyway.
I won't be surprised if another
Hellraiser is made, but you can bet
your lucky banana that I'll see the
monkey movie next time.
On a scale of one to 10,
Hellraiser: Bloodline rates a three.

The East Carolinian
Baseball team claims
three more victories
moves to 13-4
overall for season
Last week was a tough week for
the ECU Baseball team. The Pirates
took three out of five through a
tough five-game stretch. With the
Eagles of Georgia Southern as well
as the first conference foe William
and Mary coming to town, the Bucs
knew that this weekend would be
all but peaceful.
The Bucs came into the contest
with an impressive 10-2 record up
against a 16-6 Eagle team led by left-
handed pitcher Julio Ayala (7-0).
Left-hander Chad Newton
would be the Pirate on the hill for
Gary Overton's club, and he would
hold the explosive Eagles scoreless
until the top of the fifth inning. The
Bucs would draw first blood by way
of a Tim Flaherty home run which
came in the bottom of the second.
In the top of the fifth inning,
Antoine Moran of Georgia Southern
got one of his three hits by way of a
double which led to a two-run in-
ning and the lead for the Eagles.
After each club picked up a run in
the sixth, the Pirates made their
surge in the eighth inning. Senior
co-captain Lamont Edwards stepped
up in a big way. Not only did
Edwards go 34 from the plate, he
also stole second and advanced to
third after an Eagle error. Edwards
tied the game off of an Antiane
Jones sacrifice fly into center field
making the score 3-3.
The drama was building as right
fielder Chris Glanz then doubled
only to be sent home off of a Travis
Thompson single which gave ECU
the lead. In the ninth inning, after
pitching eight solid innings of base-
ball, Newton was relieved by sopho-

more Patrick Dunham. Dunham
walked his first batter and k'ed the
second, only to set up Eagle second
baseman Donnie Coe with his only
hit of the night. Coe took the
Dunham pitch deep into right field
for a two-run blast. That would prove
to be all the Eagles needed on that
blustery night as they took the first-
class college baseball game 54.
"This was a hard-fought base-
ball game, the efforts of our team,
especially Chad Newton, were out-
standing ' Coach Overton said. "I
felt that both teams attacked the
game, which was indicative in the
two runs we scored in the eighth
and the two that they scored in the
ninth. It was just an excellent col-
lege baseball game

on the Eagles pitching staff, had an

list of times and events for this week-
The Pigskin Pig-Out weekend has
always drawn a lot of people from the
community but not very' many stu-
dents. Chris Libert an intern with the

are aimed at involving more of the
students at ECU.
"We are trying to cater this year

Fl'or fast reliet from the nagging ache of taxes, we
recommend TIAA-CREF SRAs. SRAs are tax-
deferred annuities designed to help build additional
assets �money that can help make the difference
between living and living �W after your working
years are over.
Contributions to your SRAs are deducted from your
salary on a pretax basis. That lowers your current
taxable income, so you start saving on federal and,
in most cases, state and local income taxes right away.
What's more, any earnings on your SRAs are also
tax deferred until you receive them as income. That
can make a big difference in how painful your tax
bill is every year.
As the nation's largest retirement system, based
on assets under management, we offer a wide range
of allocation choices �from the T1AA Traditional
Annuity, which guarantees principal and interest
(backed by the company's claims-paying ability),
to TIAA-CREF's diversified variable annuity
accounts. And our expenses arc very low which
means more of your money goes toward improving
your future financial health.
To find out more, call 1 800 842-2888.We'll send
you a complete SRA information kit, plus a free
slide calculator that shows you how much SRAs
can lower your taxes.

The Pirates got it done on the
mound with the trio of Hewitt, John
Payne and Bryan Smith. They gave
up a total of three runs off of seven
hits, but the offense couldn't cash
in on scoring opportunities.
"We didn't swing the bats well
today, and we didn't capitalize on
our offensive opportunities, but a lot
of credit to Jeff Hewitt on a fine
pitching job Overton said.
The Pirates didn't have long be-
fore the next challenge which was
posed by the first CAA opponent of
the year, William and Mary.
"We're excited about getting
into the conference season with this
ball club which has a different look
with more speed and more offense
than last year's club Overton said
before the conference opener.
Another blustery day accompa-
nied the Pirates as they got back

The sharper Bucs would add one
more in the sixth inning which
proved to be more than enough help
for Dunham's shutout performance
on the mound.
In the second game the Pirates
punched in 8 runs off of 11 hits to
go along with senior Bryan Smith's
one hitter as ECU blanked the Tribe
once again in the second game. Con-
tributing to the Pirates' eight-run
onslaught was senior co-captian
Lamont Edwards with his first
homer of this season. Smith pitched
the complete game striking out only
two batters, but received help from
an errorless defense.

The Pirates would continue the
roll to a 3-0 conference record with
a 6-2 finish to a 3-0 sweep of the
Tribe. Newton got the start and
pitched 5 23 innings to get the win.
The Tribe struck first, scoring one
in the top of the second only to fall
behind in the bottom half for good.
Despite registering only seven hits
along with five errors, the Bucs
managed to get the hits, and the
runs when they needed them.
"Today was a sloppy win, not
like yesterday's errorless outing
Overton said. "Although we didn't
play as crisp as yesterday, but we
had timely hitting and we managed
to sweep a much improved William
and Mary club Overton said.
The Pirates will have a week to
prepare for the upcoming series with
the defending CAA regular season
champs, the James Madison Dukes.
"This should be a challenge for
our club, going up to Madison and
playing an outstanding club, but I
feel our team is ready, and I'm
pleased with the results of this first
series Overton said.
The Pirates will play the three
game affair starting March 30 and
wrapping it up on March 31.
