  Juicy Beats Volume 3PDF files may take a moment to load

Sorry girls and boys of clubland, this CD won't make you juicy or beaty. Like so many other club hit albums that have come before it, Juicy Beats is unable to transfer the energy of the dance floor to the home stereo. After five tracks, the mix becomes monotonous and repetitive.

  You're The OnePDF files may take a moment to load

Some may hear Paul Simon's You're the One and be disappointed by its slightly languid manner.

But those truly devoted to Simon will not compare this album with his past ventures, such as the 10-year-old The Rhythm of the Saints.

The fact is, it's still Simon, just older and at a different stage in his life. He has reached a state of absolute calm and demonstrates his wisdom and experience through familiar storytelling techniques evident in the 11 tracks.

  Andy Stochansky steps into the limelightPDF files may take a moment to load

Toronto resident Andy Stochansky has had quite a career so far. Playing for renowned acts like The Indigo Girls, The Barenaked Ladies and, most importantly, indie-folk goddess Ani DiFranco, Andy has proven a talented and extremely capable percussionist. But that era of his life is now over, as he steps into uncharted water as the front man of his own solo career.

Regarding his association with DiFranco, Stochansky, who plays the Blue Banana Lounge Oct. 20, would rather be seen as an autonomous individual.

  Popstars all about cosmeticsPDF files may take a moment to load

It's coming. Less than three short months from now Popstars will take over our night time viewing. I know I can hardly contain my excitement either.

For any of you who haven't seen the ad on Global, the premise behind the series is to document the formation of an all-female, Canadian singing group from auditions all the way to the brink of stardom. Beginning with about 3,000 girls, the numbers have now shrunk to the desired five. Now it's time to begin perfecting their image. Oh, and yes, record a single too.

  Shakespeare a labour in love on stagePDF files may take a moment to load

The problem one would imagine would be to find boys whose voices had not yet changed. Who else could properly imitate an appropriately feminine voice? Someone had to act the roles women were not permitted to take.

So it was during the time of William Shakespeare, when plays were acted entirely by men. This is precisely what will happen in the drama department's newest venture, the upcoming play Love's Labour's Lost.
