  Broken Social Scene, You Forgot It In PeoplePDF files may take a moment to load

So you've spent an entire year ignoring the words in this box. Weekly, I try to inform you of some of the best new releases and all you do is pass it off as another critic and his little pets. I raved about the musical genius of certain individuals and all you did was use the paper to stabilize the rocking of your desk in English. In the end, it doesn't matter; I'm just trying to do my part. But now I've got to ask a favour of you, just one little request. Buy this CD. That's all.

  The DearsPDF files may take a moment to load

Music reflects the depth and character of the people who write it, and every once in a while, a band hits it right on the head. The Dears just happen to be one of those bands.

The Montreal band describes themselves as alternative pop, however, they do not sound mainstream. When asked if The Dears make a conscious effort to stand out from the crowd, Murray Lightburn, vocalist and guitarist responds, "It's not something that's at the forefront of our minds when we sit down to write music, it just comes together."

  You can't depend on the media--trust mePDF files may take a moment to load

It is likely that the war in Iraq will begin before this paper hits the stands, and as such, we the viewers will be able to watch coverage from the front lines on TV. The journalists, however, will be "embedded" with American troops, meaning that they eat, sleep and travel with soldiers and therefore only record what the U.S. military allows them to see. While the military claims that they will not censor any coverage, the fact that they can control a reporter's mobility and access is enough to compromise journalistic integrity.

If you've heard the Weakerthans, you'll acknowledge that they fill a unique niche. Yeah, that phrase gets written about every band, and I'm sorry I started this article that way. In fact, forget that I wrote that--let's start over.

If you haven't heard the Weakerthans, you haven't heard one of Canada's best under-represented acts. From a firm emo/punk base, the band layers on pop, rock, folk, and country until you just can't call them anything, which makes writing about them very difficult.

  Reflecting on her time as a DinoPDF files may take a moment to load

If we were talking about the 'ins' and 'outs' of the fashion world, than what's going out may be a blessing. Like those crazy fluorescent outfits, big hoop earrings and huge bangs, that I'm sure Sarah Dunlop used to wear back in the '80s.

But we're not talking about fashion. Were talking about soccer, and the impact Dunlop has made in her five years of being a Dino, although I'm sure her impact on the fashion world has been one of valiant effort.
