  Anal-fistingPDF files may take a moment to load

Slavoj Žižek -- the quick-witted, foul-mouthed philosopher -- punctiliously proclaimed "fist-fucking" to be -- simply -- "Edenic," and ultimately, under my auspicious observation, Žižek is correct. Anal-fisting, a sexual act whose relatively high level of difficulty to perform with success, foreseeably prompting revulsion in sensitive ears, is the fullest and most intense manifestation of sexual capacity, pleasurability and sexual expression.

Determining office space for clubs went through some changes this year as the clubs committee looked at applications with a certain criteria rather than with a subjective approach.

"We picked a few criteria that we thought were really important," said Matt Diteljan, SU vice president student life.

As soon as I began listening to Th e Deep Dark Woods, I was instantly hooked.

This album sounds distinctively diff erent from other albums of the alternative country genre, although it's hard to figure out why. Perhaps it's the simple lyrics, or the rich vocals of the lead singer Ryan Boldt. Maybe it's the perfect blend of piano and banjo, or the melancholy undertone that reverberates throughout the album. Whatever it is, the Saskatchewan-based band has got it absolutely right with this one.
