  Ground Zero Theatre ain't selling outPDF files may take a moment to load

Ground Zero Theatre is hoping to teach their audience something with their latest production: success and selling out are not necessarily the same thing.

Speed the Plow, written by David Mamet, is the story of Bobby Gould (Trevor Leigh), a Hollywood producer conflicted between a money-making, action-packed, soul-destroying film and an artsy picture. Ryan Luhning plays Charlie Fox, the man with everything to lose. Charlie approaches Bobby with the latest, hottest actor who is an extremely successful action hero.

It's unclear upon entering SS 1306 if you have just walked into a small library, storage room or a professor's office. Then you spot professor James Apple in the corner, most likely reading classical Tibetan literature at his small desk. It's not that he enjoys his office's textual clutter, but the assistant professor of eastern religions owns so many books that storage options are few.

  Dinos face Huskies for Hardy CupPDF files may take a moment to load

Cue the Coldplay - the Dinos football team is back at the start.

If the Gauntlet was the CBC (or the Calgary Flames, who shamelessly stole the concept for their game opening video this season), we would put together a sweet collection of backwards highlights to go along with that lede. But we're not, so you're going to have to use your imagination.

With some artists, there's a constant need for re-invention and Maxine Morin -- otherwise known as DJ Champion -- experienced that drive with his new album Resistance, released in September.

  Dinosaur Jr. roar back from extinctionPDF files may take a moment to load

With the recent resurgence of reunion tours in stadiums and concert halls around the world, it's a nice surprise when a beloved '90s band has actually produced something worthwhile in their reunited time together. This is the case with Dinosaur Jr.

After reuniting in 2005, producing two albums -- 2007's Beyond and this year's Farm, both feel like Dinosaur Jr. in their heyday -- and touring basically non-stop, the band has put all other reunion acts to shame.
