This past Tuesday, University of Calgary student Thomas Milley fell from the second floor of the Taylor Family Digital Library while dancing Gangnam-style. Onlookers were both terrified and unsure as to whether Milley’s fall was part of his bizarre moves. Milley suffered minor injuries.

  Sex lives steaming up with Fifty Shades of GreyPDF files may take a moment to load

This summer was 50 shades sexier with the newest literary phenomenon, Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. Some call it the adult version of Twilight, others say it’s pornography for women. Whatever the case may be, the book flew off shelves in bookstores around the world. It’s been on everyone’s mind lately, and the readers just can’t get enough of Anastasia Steele, the heroine of the story, and her sexual partner Christian Grey.

  Watching Wall Street burnPDF files may take a moment to load

It was late Saturday night in Black Rock City, Nevada — site of the infamously intense Burning Man festival. As I relished in the comedown of another acid trip, I stood witness to the burning of “Wall Street,” which stood as five massive, full-sized buildings, ironically beautiful representatives of capitalism’s financial vanguard: corporate banks. The fire that engulfed them was immense in size, ferocity and brightness, reducing the structures to smoldering coals atop the desert dust.

  Raised expectations for men's hockeyPDF files may take a moment to load

With NHL labour talks slowly grinding towards another prolonged lockout, it doesn’t appear as though there will be much professional hockey to look forward to this fall. However, the Canadian Interuniversity Sport season is upon us and the Dinos men’s hockey team is ready to make some noise in the Canada West conference. Last year’s team struggled with consistency in the first half of the season and had a tough travel schedule.

  Staring down a new seasonPDF files may take a moment to load

For the most part, the University of Calgary enjoys a fantastic athletic reputation. However, baseball isn’t normally recognized as a part of the athletic canon even though the U of C has a baseball club. Dinos athletics has developed into one of the most prestigious and successful programs that continually poses a threat to other schools in the Canada West conference and across the country. However, that hasn’t always been the best description of the U of C baseball club — until this past season.

  Spun: MakPDF files may take a moment to load

Hailing from Montreal, the five-person alternative rock band Mak showcase their 
Radiohead and Coldplay influenced sound in their nine track self-titled album, MAK. I was unable to fully appreciate this album, maybe because of my prolonged exposure to club music and indie pop.

  Spun: MantrakidPDF files may take a moment to load

Recently my father has taken to harassing my sister, an electronic music enthusiast, with endless questions about her favourite genre. “What is this bass-step foot-dub stuff everyone is listening to? What makes this stuff, you know, good?” My sister scoffed and ignored him. This was a pretty effective way of avoiding my dad’s pestering, but she should have just handed him a copy of Mantrakid’s Dragon Lullabies.
