  Damhnait Doyle, DaventPDF files may take a moment to load

Comparing Damhnait Doyle to the likes of acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriters Emm Gryner and Sarah Harmer (a comparison that is made often), is not entirely unfair. After all, her catchy pop-folk tracks like "Another California Song" and "Traffic" can rival Harmer's "Don't Get Your Back Up" with ease. But after a closer listen, this simple description of Doyle's music--up to and including her new album Davnet--can't say enough about the musical and lyrical craft she yields.

  Fischerspooner, #1 PDF files may take a moment to load

This is the future of electronic music--or at least for the next couple of months.

Some call it synthcore, some call it electroclash; it's really just a reincarnation of electro, mashed with pop, vocals and really annoying sounds like pneumatic drills. This genre of rehashing was pretty much started by Fischerspooner with their hit song Emerge, a single quite a while ago, which is easily the best song on #1.

  Matthew Good, AvalanchePDF files may take a moment to load

Whether the Matthew Good Band broke up because Matt Good is an asshole (as rumoured), or because the band had spent their creative energy, Matt Good's decision to go solo was a good move. His new album Avalanche contains the best parts of the old Matthew Good material but is carried by a fresh electricity and vision.

The album is full of layered songs, all sounding different from each other, that are as heartbreaking and bitter as ever. They are, however, set to new drum beats, new guitar and the ever present orchestra.

  Cool clothes come cheapPDF files may take a moment to load

Young people on tight budgets often sacrifice quality for price. At this institute of higher learning, it is not uncommon to see expensive brand-name everything give way to cheap sweat pants and stained t-shirts by the end of first year. Three U of C students hope to change this trend by providing the best of both worlds with their start-up clothing business Ruffnek Gear.

Re: "A Voice in the Darkness," March 13, 2002.

While I respect Mr. Li's opinions and welcome debate on an issue as important as differential tuition, I find he underestimates the anti-differential sentiment on campus.

Those were the words of former chief UN weapons inspector in Iraq, Scott Ritter. He lectured at the 2003 Dr. Irma Parhad Lecture and Roundtable at the University of Calgary on Fri., Mar. 14.

While admitting that he is not a media specialist, he feels that the media portrays the events of the Iraq Crisis as being simply black and white.
