We've all had that one teacher who truly inspires, the one who pushes you to expand your
limits and find a passion for learning. We've also all had professors that flat-out don't do
their job. Whether they fail everyone who walks through the door or ignore the needs of
their students, they don't deserve to be at the head of a classroom.
As students, we have the means to affect the world around us. At the end of each
semester, we are given forms to evaluate our teachers. Unfortunately, many students look
at these forms as little more than another chore to do. Often, we rush right through
evaluations without giving them the attention they need and justify it by saying, "It
doesn't really matter what I say
Some feel that evaluation forms are another rubber stamp ECU hands out. Actually, the
opinions students express weigh heavily when a professor comes up for tenure. If you
think you have the professor from hell, speak up! If he or she is really that bad, others will
feel the same way and the powers that be will wake up and take another look.
Now that midterms are over, we should begin to give a little advance thought to these
matters. Are you happy with the way your classes are being taught? If not, is it honestly
because of faults of the teacher? If that's what it is, by all means, say so. However, back up
what you say with reasons besides, "Man, this guy sucks There is a space on the form for
written comments and while it is not required it is importnat. If you put plenty of reasons
behind your scores of "1 people will begin to take notice. If you don't give them any
, reasons, do you expect the people who look at the forms to pay attention? They won't take
; you seriously if you don't take them seriously.
Members of the younger classes won't remember this, but the evaluation forms used to
be a lot less specific. The written portions were only added after people complained that
they weren't detailed enough. If the written parts are just left blank, what good was
adding them? TEC would like to encourage the administration to make the written
portion mandatory too.
SGAs at some schools publish results of teacher evaluations for the students. An index of
each professor would be valuable for us. Rather than relying on hearsay when it comes
time to choose next semester's teachers, we could see what past classes have had to say.
Many of us are putting ourselves into years of debt for this school. It's only reasonable to
want to make the most informed choice possible.
Notification laws not needed
Parental notification is a
measure taken by the law in
regard to juvenile offenses.
Therefore, also allowing
universities to implement this
measure is suggesting that a
college student is not an adult
and should be treated
A law, proposed by John Warner
of Virginia, if passed will give
universities (among other
institutions) the right to notify
parents of students who commit
alcohol and drug violations. The
proposal's aim is to deter under-
age drinking and drug offenses
that supposedly run rampant on
campuses around the country.
Lawmakers feel that the threat of
parental notification will compel
students to "reconsider" before
taking any actions deemed
criminal by the university codes of
While the proposal may be a
well-intended attempt to curb
student alcohol and drug use, it is
certainly not a very well thought-
out deterrent. A college student is
an adult. Whether or not he or she
is a mature adult is not the issue.
Part of college life (and any post-
high-shool graduation path) is the
slow but sure attainment of
responsibility and accountability.
To notify parents at every offense
most assuredly impedes the
student's capability to deal with
the consequences of his or her
actions, i.e. breaking the law.
Parental notification is a
measure taken by the law in
regard to juvenile offenses.
Therefore, also allowing
universities to implement this
measure is suggesting that a
college student is not an adult and
should be treated accordingly.
This is a very dangerous concept
that could be used in other areas
that would prove to be
very detrimental to students
Another very important issue is
privacy. Since a student is legally
an adult, not to mention a citizen
of the United States, there are
certain rights which are
"inalienable Students have a
right to privacy in the personal,
medical AND legal matters that
pertain to them. To inform
anyone (even if it is a parent) of
such matters is a direct violation of
It is understandable that
universities and lawmakers
become very frustrated with
student alcohol and drug
violations, and hence, search for
any way to curb these offenses.
However it is not understandable
that any entity would forgo
common sense to accomplish this.
When an individual can serve in a
war and vote for a president, then
surely this same individual can
choose what personal information
to tell his or her parents. Whether
lawmakers, or police agree or feel
that it is in the individual's best
interest is a non-issue. Essentially,
the university's parenting of
students and violating their
privacy (and thus violating a basic
principle of our country) will
eventually do more harm than
good. So, the adoption of this
policy, if it is indeed passed, would
be an unconscionable short and

the kids go ape poop.
This time, I'm gonna talk about
the nation's space program, and
what's going on with it.
For starters, I don't like the
space program. I like the idea of
it; I just don't really see any
advances coming from it. The
only really useful thing that
NASA ever brought typical
Americans was Velcro.
You're probably thinking,
"But Ryan-Dogg! What about
Tang?" Well, here's the skinny
on Tang. It is a dehydrated
orange beverage that became
famous because it was part of the
diet of those guys who landed on
the moon. When it came out in
the early 70s, people flocked to
their local markets and bought it
by the metric ton, never giving a
thought to the fact that it didn't
taste particularly good, and it
caused something that rhymes
And yes, there was that
Astronaut Ice Cream stuff. It was
a good marketing idea, to be
honest. Charge three bucks a
pop for a brick of Neapolitan
chalk and watch the kids go ape
But aside of the useless
products we have, and that's
including the Hubble Telescope,
they still can't seem to capture
our attention like they did with
the moon landing. They even
have that channel on television-
you know the one. It consists of
slow-moving shots of the earth,
back and forth. It's like the
Kennedy assassination tape, only
it lasts a few light-years longer.
Boring photos plus no sound
multiplied by the American
attention span equals "nobody
cares The least they can do is
interrupt the silence with a
random alien popping up and
threatening to destroy the
But no! Instead, to boost their
popularity, they are instilling the
presence of Senator John Glenn.
As you may know, he was the first
man in orbit. Now, at age 77, he's
back and about to go into the
great unknown once again. The
blast-off is scheduled for
Thursday, and the reporters have
been going nuts over it.
Glenn's presence is based
around the project of Geriatrics
in Space, which is a lot better
than their usual projects, which
include "Pigs in Space "Ants in
Space and the ever-popular
"Opinion Columnist Stephen
Kleinschmit in Space
For now, I'm not sure whether
I believe that Glenn is involved
solely for the advancement of
knowledge. It seems like a
pretty good idea to get more
media attention, and thus more
money to waste. At any rate, I'll
be praying for Senator Glenn,
seeing as he is now in his upper
seventies. Let's just hope they
pack a lot of Ensure.

Academic Support Center offers
tutoring, counseling strategy courses
As midterms come to a close, many ECU students find that
their grades are not looking so good. But, do not fear, there
are many places on campus to help the struggling student.
The Academic Support Center recommends workshops
as the first step to building a better academic career. They
offer workshops dealing with such areas as academic moti-
vation, career exploration, note-taking strategies, reading
for comprehension, stress management, test anxiety, test-
taking strategies, and time management The Center for
Counseling and Student Development offers workshops on
"Becoming a Successful Student" and "Academic
Motivation Both help students explore how to better their
"The academic motivation workshop is especially
important said Dr. Nancy Badger of the Center for
Counseling and Student Development. "A lot of students
can get tired and give up on school
The times and places of Academic Support Center work-
shops can be picked up at B103 Brewster Building.
Workshops provided by Student Development take place
on Mondays and Tuesdays starting in November.
"We usually like to schedule the workshops around the

middle of the semester, during registration Badger said.
Students who feel completely at a loss on what to do may
attend counseling sessions. These include individual and
group sessions. Call the Center for Counseling and Student
Development at 328-6661 for more information.
Another option available to students is tutoring.
"We have tutors mostly for freshmen and sophomore
classes said Marsha Lassiter, tutor. "There are some for
upperclassmen classes, but someone should speak to pro-
fessors in their department if they really need help

by B103 Brewster.
A way to help improve studying for a class is to simply
talk with the professor.
"Just ask the professor about his or her tests and how you
should study for them said Don Joyner, assistant dean of
Undergraduate Studies. "Teachers can be creatures of
habit, just by looking at your past tests, you should be able
to figure out what your final will look like
In the end though, it is up to the students themselves to
study. There are many tips on how to study that everyone
can do. When reading or studying for a class, try to take a
break every fifty minutes. This helps retain information.
It is also important to set priorities about one's life. This
can help students maintain a balance between work, study
A handout from the Office of Undergraduate Studies
states, "Make social interactions a part of your life, not you
Before it becomes too late, one should always keep
a eye on their grade point average before it falls too low.
At the end of the semester, there might be a stamp signify-
ing an academic warning, or worse, academic probation on
your report card. For those students (including transfer stu-
dents) who have attempted 8-31 semester hours, a 1.35
GPA is needed. If completing 32-63 hours, a GPA equal
of higher to 1.6 is needed to avoid academic probation. An
1.8 GPA is need for 64-95 hours and an 1.9 GPA for 96 or

� Try to study at the same time and place everyday so it becomes habit.
� Don't study in a too relaxed environment, you may be tempted to gox
� Think ahead about schoolwork, try to plan out the semester.
� Go to class, it reinforces the subject information and allows you to ask
the professor questions.
� Sit near the front of the class (It helps you pay attention).
� Study way before the test, not the night before (That should just be a
time of review).
� When you miss a class, always get notes from others.

Even though the winter season is
quickly approaching, many ECU
students are striving to maintain
healthy and fit. They do so by using
exercise, such as running or walking
on and around campus.
While keeping in shape, stu-
dents must also strive to keep safe.
According to Tom Younce, assis-

department, the campus area is a
relatively good one, but students
still need to be aware of what is
going on around them.

Saturday in Washington, D.C.
This event marked the first

Pirates and they won six events
against the Eagles.
Head coach Rick Kobe was
very proud of the Pirate's effort

Butler took the very next victory
when she won the 200-meter
freestyle in a time of 1:56.35.
Butler also took the 500 free in
5:10.12 for her second victory.
A piece of ECU history was
also set in stone on Saturday as
freshman Courtney Foster won
the 50-meter freestyle with a time
of 24.81. This time marks the
fifth fastest time in the history of
the event for women's swimming
at ECU. Foster also won the 100-

On Sunday both teams saw
repeat performances at James

their second meet in a row while
the men lost their second straight
to the Dukes.
For the women, Butler had

ECU also posted a win in div-

scoring 216.98 on the 1-meter
ECU's men scored seven vic-

not enough as JMU defeated the
Pirates in a very close meet.
Adam Gaffey had two victories
of his own winning the 1000-

ECU grows with

makes a bigger name
Jim P h e l p s
ECU's name becomes better
known every time the school plays
bigger, better teams. Pirate athlet-
ics has grown in name over the
years through play with nationally
"When you play nationally
known teams you get a great deal
more national publicity Henry
VanSant, assistant athletics direc-
tor, said. "You're on ESPN score-
board, you're on ABC scoreboard
Playing against bigger competi-
tion not only helps ECU's name
grow, but it also helps the universi-
ty's pocketbook. People are more
likely to buy tickets to see nation-
ally known teams.
"Look at the attendance for last
Saturday's game against Army,
which is certainly a nationally
known team, and you see the dif-
ference between that and what we
do against UT-Chattanooga
Football is not the only sport
that feels these effects. All the
sports share in this, especially bas-
ketball. The Pirate basketball
team also receives a lot of coverage
when it plays nationally known
ECU's track team has played
many nationally known teams such
as Nebraska, and traveled to other
meets with national powers. This
high-profile competition also helps
"Playing these nationally
known teams helps in recruiting
VanSant said. "All your top athletes
want to play against these national-
ly known teams
While ECU has played many
nationally known teams in the past,
it is currently adding more top
teams to the lineup. The baseball
schedule for this year reflects this
with teams like N.C. State, Wake
Forest, North Carolina and Ohio

Pirates defeat Vttpnia
The ECU Volleyball team earned
a split in its two home Colonial
Athletic Association games this
past weekend, losing a tough
match to William and Mary on
Friday, and earning an impressive
win over Virginia Commonwealth
After falling behind early
against the William and Mary
Tribe, the team rallied behind the
play of Lucinda Mason who
helped the Pirates claw back into it
before eventually losing the first
match 15-9. The inspired play of
Tara Tobias and Ellen Gazdowicz,
who recorded 12 kills and 12
assists, led the Tribe to a 15-10 vic-
tory in the second match. In the
third'match ECU came out strong,
led by the play of Clinta Claro who
recorded 12 kills in the game, but
the Pirates weren't able to over-
come the strong defense of the
Tribe, eventually losing 15-10.
The Pirates turned it all around
on Saturday with an impressive
straight game win over the VCU
Rams snapping a three-match con-
ference losing streak in the
"After Friday's loss to William
and Mary, I told the athlete's to
just wash it out of their minds, put
it behind them head coach Kim
Walker said. "Apparently they did
that. We came out aggressively and
made better decisions
Claro continued her strong play,
helping lead the Pirates to an early
7-0 lead in the first game before
taking the game 15-9. The Pirates
continued to pound the ball by ral-
lying to a 15-10 win in the second
game. In the third ECU pulled
away from a 9-9 tie late in the game
with the help of Mason whose ser-
vice ace broke the tie. From that
point on the Pirates never looked
back, scoring five of the last six
points to take the game 15-10.
"These athletes decided to for-
get what has happened in the past
and looked almost unstoppable
Mason paced the team, finish-
ing with nine kills, three aces, five
digs and five blocks. Shannon
Kaess also contributed heavily to
the team's strong play, adding eight
kills and nine digs.
The split leaves ECU with a 9-
13 record overall and a 3-5 CAA
record. The squad takes the court
next Friday, traveling to Baltimore,
MD to take on Morgan State. The
Pirates then return to conference
action with an away
match against James Madison
on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Against Southern Missippi, ECU
was flagged for holding on four
straight kickoff returns, leaving the
offense with terrible field position
for most of the game. Junior wide-

brought back because of penalties.

Kerr returned to the Pirate line

was glad to be back on the field, he
said he was disappointed with the

Kerr said. "We know that we're a lot
better defense than what played last

You're facing a dilemma. Spending a cold Halloween night downtown
dealing with masses of overzealous and possibly intoxicated souls is
a scary prospect. Then again, the thought of a quiet night at home on
Halloween is a drag. What's a fun-loving student like you to do?
Why not join 2,000-3,000 students and guests and come into Mendenhall
on this night? Midnight Madness, sponsored by the Division of Student
Life, offers a free Halloween bash that's full of stuff to do, free food, free
entertainment, free novelty attractions, and free giveaways. There will be
plenty of chances to win cash prizes, either by winning at the costume
contest or Bingo. Besides the free prizes and giveaways, students can feel
the rush of driving a virtual stock car, learn their fates from fortune tellers,
make a music video, and dance the night away.
Forget the hassle of trick-or-treating for free food! ECU Dining Services is
offering the perfect Halloween menu to satisfy any sweet tooth. Join other
ghosts and goblins at Midnight Madness for free candy apples, cotton
candy, snow cones, popcorn, and peanuts. From 11 p.m. -1 a.m.
Mendenhall will serve a Midnight Breakfast Buffet. Don't miss our
scrambled newt eggs with lizard tails and fish scales, haggish hashbrowns,
ghoulish grits, tombstone biscuits, monstrous milk, and orange blood!
Midnight Madness starts at 9 p.m. and ends at
2 a.m. Students need only present their ECU
One Cards to enter the bash. Each student may
obtain one guest pass, which must be picked
up prior to the event. Guest passes can be
picked up beginning October 26 at the Central
Ticket Office from 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. or at
the Todd Dining Hall Meal Plan Office
from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. On Halloween, guest
passes may be picked up at the Student

p.m. In place of a Saturday night Hendrix
film, Halloween Cartoon Shorts will be
shown as part of Midnight Madness
(guest passes required).

Halloween is afoot in the Emerald City and it just may be the most
anticipated social event on the ECU party calender.
Downtown streets are shut down to cars while the people min-
gle freely, masquerading through the bowery and passing through
the bars. The open-street atmosphere makes it easy for those in
costume to see and meet their fellow freaks as they wind their way
through the crowd.
The downtown Halloween ceremonies have taken some beat-
ings in the past. A bad rap wasn't even the worst of it. Crowds who
refused to go home when asked by police were maced until they
Much of the added commotion and festivity is due to the area's
sudden Halloween population surge. People come from the ends of

Wide Swing TYemolo
9 out of 10
Son Volt is a band. They spawned
from the now extinct country-rock
pioneer band called Uncle Tupelo,
which disbanded in the early 90s.
Jay Farrar (now thesongwriterlcad
singer of Son Volt) worked in col-
laboration with Jeff Tweedy to pro-
duce four almost equally brilliant
records, picking up hordes of fans
spanning the country.
Then, in 1993, following the
release of their finest album enti-
tled Anodyne, Farrar shrugged his
shoulders and left the band high
and dry, causing them to split up
and head down separate roads.
Tweedy went on to form the criti-
cally praised rock outfit Wilco,
while Farrar set up his stakes with
When Son Volt put out their
first album, Trace, many found it to
be everything they could hope for.
Its delicious blend of hard rocking
riffs and slow acoustic gems was
alluring. Then, in 1997, the band
followed up with the record
Straightaways. This album was
basically a continuation of Trace,
but it didn't do anything to expand
on the sound, and thus was widely
considered a disappointment.
Some started to wonder if Farrar
had run out of ideas.
Well, some people should quit
their wondering and go pick up
the new disk Wide Swing Tremolo.
Son Volt is back in full force, and
this is shown quite clearly from
the start with their opening track
"StraightfaceThe song is a flat-
out rocker, complete with loud
crunching guitars and harshly dis-
This leads us into the next song
"Driving the View which has the
words "underground hit single"
written all over it. It has a lovely
melody, and the harmonies provid-
ed by bassist Jim Boquist arc possi-
bly the most consistently perfect in
the country rock genre. Indeed,
these first couple songs are a more
hyped-up side of Son Volt than
most of us have ever heard, which
brings us to the third songJodel
Jodel is the biggest waste of
space I have ever listened to. It is 41
seconds of off-key harmonica, and
that is putting it nicely. I hate it.
This song is the sole reason for this
album not getting 10 out of 10. It's
that bad. I'd feel more comfortable
listening to a swarm of 17-year
cicadas climaxing with one unify-
ing yet piercing screech. Nope,
"Jodel" is not a good song.
Just when you think that this
band is completely out of their

Hey DisncyPixar Productions! You've
got a new butt to kiss! That's right, kids.
Dreamworks INC. picks up where they
left off with Small Soldiers and make it a
one-two punch with the release of their
newest animated masterpiece, Antz.
Let's begin with the understanding
that this is not a movie for kids. There
are a few curse words (which added to
my enjoyment), a giant army-style fight
scene that depicts soldier ants being
melted by acid-spewing termites, and
ants are burnt to cinders by a human
with a magnifying glass. Pretty hardcore
The movie centers around one work-
er ant named Z-4195, voiced by neurotic
Unfortunately, the entire cast was wiped out when the best boy spilled 8 beer at the cast party.
Woody Allen, who is under the impres-
sion that there is more to life than mov-
ing dirt from place to place. Likewise is
Princess Bala, voiced by Sharon Stone,
who is being forced to marry General
Mandible (Gene Hackman) against her
wishes. Mandible, along with the aid of
Colonel Cutler (Christopher Walken)
plans to eliminate all the worker ants by
drowning them, thus making a supreme
society of soldier ants.
Other notable roles are Sly Stallone
as a soldier ant that falls for a worker
ant, voiced by Jennifer Lopez. Also Dan
Aykroyd and Jane Curtin play some
very WASPish wasps.
That's the basic introduction, but
there's more to the story that meets the
eye. This movie is more than just an
excuse to make another cartoon using
Toy Srory-esquc animations. Antz has
political statements out the wazoo. In
fact, it would be a good idea to go out
and read Anthem by Ayn Rand before
viewing it. Themes of socialism run
amok in almost every scene.
First of all, the newborn ants (in lar-
vae form) arc immediately set in front of
a committee and deemed whether they
are suited to be workers, in which case
they arc given a pickax, or soldiers, in
which case they are given a helmet.
Secondly, the ants are not allowed to
think for themselves. They are so used to
doing nothing but work that they actual-
ly enjoy it and ask no questions. They
arc told when to dance, when to sleep,
and anyone that defers from the norm is
By the end of the film, however, Z-
4195 is able to overcome the elements
and reform the entire commune. The
animation during the final scene is so
realistic, you can actually see the social-
ism crumbling down to the ground.
Antz is a miniature view of our own
society, and the fact that it can poke fun
at it is reason enough to see it. Like the
tag line of the movie states, "Every ant
has his day Let's hope that these partic-
ular ants have more than just one day in
the sun, for these insect stars will be
shining for years to come.

minds, they follow up with "Medicine Hat which is a catchy albeit lyrically
confusing little ditty, and possibly the best song on the disk.
The remainder of the disk is just as strong, mixing the usual spellbind-

someone trying to undermine your
position with flattery and bribery.
Keep your cool. There will be great
news about money, and possibly a
new, lucrative job offer.
(November 23 - December 21)
It will be an effortless and pleasur-
able week for you. Keep in mind you
do have the power to make all sorts
of changes for the better. Everyone
seems overly emotional as of late, so
be on guard for lies and accusations.
Harmony will be restored at home
by week's end.
(December 22 - January 20)
Wherever you are, you will be sur-
rounded by friendship and luck.
Unexpected money is coming your
way. Both family and work responsi-
bilities are heavy, take one situation
at a time. Be aware that guidance
comes through your dreams.
Positive vibes continue at home.
(January 21 - February 19)
You need to travel in order to check
out an opportunity to increase your
income. Don't neglect a mate who's
starving for attention. Both your
professional image and reputation is
boosted to new levels. Your charm
and magnetism take you through
any sticky situations right now.
(February 20-March 20)
It's a week of heavy mental stimula-
tion and challenges. Both innovative
and unconventional approaches
work. Your assert iveness takes you
far at work and your family's happy
and enjoys being together. Plan your
entertainment and include others
from the sideline.
Your closest relationships are stable
for now, but your inner voice may be
prompting you to take time alone
for self-renewal. Professional
advancement is at hand, so keep
yourself on the straight and narrow.
Your creative urges may turn into

Don't mess with Carrie
Tint bucket of pig's Mood nil look great with your corsage
Tj-ijr Carrie is just one of
those movies you can
turn to again and again every
Halloween for sheer, unadulterated
shock and creeping terror.
Yeah, but it's a prom movie, you say.
I know, I know. There's no excuse.
There's something about the lo-fi
filming style, unrelenting carnage
and utter chaos in Brian DePalma's
1976 film version of Stephen King's
first literary success that gives it a
permanent standing above any
other film of its kind since. Many
have tried, and failed, to make prom
night into such a terrifying experi-
King's formula is simple enough:
take one girl with groovy telekinetic
powers, add a psycho mom and a
horde of loudmouthed high-school
kids who hate her guts. Shake well,
and serve with a splash of pig's
Piper Laurie is chillingly one-
dimensional in her role as Carrie's
holy-roller Tori Amos look-alike
mother, a distant but violent crea-
ture who floats from door to door in
a black robe collecting donations for

vniititi - approaching, it's
time to decide what to do on the big
night Should you go to the movies?
How about billiards or perhaps
singing the night away to Monster
Mash? Maybe a night of dinner and
dancing? Well you can do all of this
and more at the Seventh Annual
Midnight Madness on Halloween
night from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at
Mendenhall Student Center.
There's a little bit of everything
for everyone to enjoy. They'll have
their usual favorites from years past
such as billiards and glow bowling.
"This is our second year we've
done glow bowling said Carol
Woodruff, marketing director of the
department of university unions.
"There are special pins and balls
that glow under black light"
If you are looking for a quick
glimpse into the future or the
answer to some of your undying
questions, check out the fortune
tellers, wizard, or psychic hotline for
"Our wizard and the psychic
hodine will be available at the stu-
dent organization booth, while there
will be a couple of fortune tellers in
the Mendenhall lounge and in the
gallery upstairs Woodruff said.
Then there is the ever-popular
video karaoke. Realize those dreams
of becoming a singing sensation
and walk away with a video of your
five minutes of fame.
"Karaoke is always popular
every year" Woodruff said. "It will
be held in room 244 from 9 p.m.
until 2 a.m
There will also be a chance for
you to get your dance on with DJ J.
Arthur from 1! p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
Once you've worked up an
appetite with all of the singing and
dancing, head on over to the dining
hall for an all-you-can-eat breakfast
buffet Food will be served form 11
p.m. to 1 a.m.
Contests and games such as
bingo, a pumpkin carving contest
and a costume contest will give you
a chance to win some prizes. See
your R.A. or the resident coordina-
tor for more information.
"We will have cash prizes for the
best male costume, best female cos-
tume, and best group costume
Woodruff saidAll those interested
in participating must be in Hendrix

regular mugs, wind-up knick
knacks and official Midnight
"The ECU Student Stores assist
us in getting those t-shirts printed
each yearrWoodruff said. "We defi-
nitely appreciate their support
There have been some new
events added to the Midnight
While going from event to event,
you can stop into Hendrix Theater
to watch cartoon shorts � mini
Halloween cartoons that will be
shown before and after the costume
The Ghoul Cafe, Mendenhall's
haunted house, has been replaced
this year with Evil Landing which
will be held in the social room. All
people involved are keeping a tight
lip as to what will be going on in the
haunted house. All that has been
said is that aliens will be involved�
-the rest is top secret.
The last new addition is the vir-
tual reality Nascar ride. According to
Woodruff there will be four cars set

her church. Her other hobbies
include sewing, singing and self-fla-
gellating, plus ignoring and generally
repressing the delicate Carrie in a
house heavy with dark wood and
Well, our heroine enjoys the same
warm companionship and good
times at school too, as if that were a
surprise. After joining an attack on
Carrie with tampons in a locker
room in the opening sequence, one
girl feels guilty and gets her
boyfriend, a puffy-haired jock with
GOOD GUY stamped across his fore-
head, to ask Carrie to the prom and
show her a good time.
Can we skip the rest of the movie
and go straight to prom night,
please?! (Why yes, that is John
Travolta with a bucket of pig's blood.
Now hush up.)
Carrie gets herself all duded up in a
gorgeous petal pink satin gown she
made herself, and naturally her mom
has to try to screw things up.
"I can see your dirty pillows she
says, just to keep things light.
"They're called breasts, Mama, and
every woman has them Carrie
Smart comeback. Did you ace
rhetoric last semester?
So she takes off for the prom, which
is charmingly crammed into the
school gym, not knowing of a
fiendish plot (involving Travolta and
the aforementioned bucket o' pig's
blood) to embarrass her in front of
DePalma, in his wisdom, saves all the
best stuff for last. Once you've seen
Carrie's terrifying face streaked with
pig's blood, eyes bulging, body
tensed, damnation oozing from
every pore, you'll never forget it.
The scene brands like a hot iron.
Carrie snaps the gym doors shut
with a telekinetic blast, leaving her-
self plenty of time to leisurely extract
the vengeance for which a million
tortured, misunderstood high school
girls' souls have cried out since time
began: total, brutal, indiscriminate
and full of neat pyrotechnics.

Carpin's girlfriend was mumbling in
her sleep one day. Carpin makes a
point to dictate stories behind the
songs, a good habit for any tour-
guide. Many of the non-album tunes
had this Tex-Mex feel to them,
mainly because of Carpin's Mexican
ancestry. Don't forget your roots.
Finally, we flew out to California
to try out the movie business.
