  Movies make me sickPDF files may take a moment to load

I have a theory that bad movies propagate like viruses. Here's how.

One skin-baring, pop-diva-soundtrack-supporting, eye-gouging, stupid-fest known as a movie sneaks into a multiplex. It sits quietly, fed by people's hard-earned dollars until it explodes and spews copycat films, just as bad as the parent movie, all over the world. Then they go and produce worse and worse films until we end up with a flick that only has one good point--the ending.

It is only fitting that the Gauntlet should cover the University of ElectroniCalgary, since the group came into existence through the very pages of the paper.

There's more to dance than professional prima donnas on a stage or a Britney Spears video.

This year will be no different. Over 80 performers and a dozen choreographers are presenting 10 pieces that range in style from modern to jazz to funk.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

In his piece, Kyle Young asks three questions and answers none of them.

The first is "why do all extremists seem to be ultra-left nowadays?" Actually, they don't seem to be and they aren't, and if Mr. Young has read a newspaper since September 11, that should be abundantly clear to him.

  Neither sleet nor snowPDF files may take a moment to load

For most people, the month of November is a time to put away the lawnmower and break out the snowblower. But for others, it's a time to shed the sweatpants and get on down to the skivvies. For those lucky few, there is nothing better than dressing down in a pair of paper-thin shorts, a singlet and simply running their asses off.

University of Calgary students were served eggs with a side of awareness on Thurs., Nov. 15 in the MacEwan Student Centre East Courtyard.
