  Help stop MontgomeryPDF files may take a moment to load

Retired Dinos volleyball star Wes Montgomery has to be stopped. He's trying to go a month without sex, masturbation and alcohol and he's halfway through. This can't happen.

Wes thinks he can do it, but Wes has mojo. He has crazy mojo, and frankly, it's up to you to bring it out.

What can you do? If you know Wes, get him out drinking. Wes likes to drink--at least the old Wes did. He needs to get out to the Den again and revisit his old self.

  Bedtime at the DenPDF files may take a moment to load

Andre Rodrigues loves making movies and he is damn good at what he does. Nearly two years ago, the University of Calgary student and filmmaker debuted his first film trilogy, The Puffy Room, to a full house at Max's. This coming Tuesday should be no different with the release of his second trilogy, Bedtime Tales, at the Den. The release features three short films approximately seven minutes each in length which all take place in, you guessed it, the bedroom.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Cult of the anti-chic," Feb. 28, 2002,

Kyle Young clearly needs to give his head a shake. To equate non-conformist, anti-establishment, activists with those who are hardcore Gap consumers is a travesty. More often than Young realizes, people who hold these beliefs hold them for good reasons, not just because the clothing style is so "cool".

Re: "Good gates make good neighbours," Feb. 28, 2002,

Perhaps I do not fully understand the point of the aforementioned article, but it appears to me that it is simply a rant against the successful middle class worker who has made the choice to live in a way fit for him/herself and their family.

The Gauntlet Tier 2 elections took place Wed., March 20. As per usual, there was a hand grenade thrown square at the crotch of democracy.

"None of the races were even contested," said an obviously drunk Editor-in-Chief-elect Kris Kotarski, who swept to victory two weeks before. "These bastards didn't even have to campaign."

"What are we, the Students' Union?" quipped News Editor-elect Вen Li. "This is a travesty in the highest degree."

  External race a real squeakerPDF files may take a moment to load

Fourty-four votes decided the battle for the Students' Union Vice-President External title.

"I'm shocked it was so close," said runner-up Geoff Price after election results were announced late on Mon., March 18. "I didn't do any campaigning on Monday; if I did maybe I could have swung 44 votes."

VP External-elect Nick Vuckovic attributed his victory in part to his campaign efforts on Monday.

Olivers Bladek and Ho dominated the Senate race, defeating perennial candidate Matt Dalidowicz and neither is taking the victory lightly.

"I will be taking proactive action to meet each of the other senators on a personal basis before the first meeting," said Ho. "[Oliver and I] will prepare for the first senate meeting by meeting personally with each of the other senators and talking with our Students' Union colleagues to bring the student perspective to the first senate meeting."
