  Kill Bill? Looks like he's just woundedPDF files may take a moment to load

It's not easy to look at a Quentin Tarantino film and come out saying, "That's it?" After all, plenty of people would love to see Kill Bill decried for all the wrong reasons--it's shallow, it's violent and it brings new meaning to the idiom "paint the town red." Given these misguided complaints, Kill Bill could have been exactly what it set out to be: the perfect homage. A stylish, slick, modern incarnation of the kung-fu flicks of old.

"I'm cool, but most of the girls like Craig," says Tom Thacker, lead singer for Gob and favourite of the ladies. "Theo [Goutzinakis] tries the hardest and Gabe [Mantle] likes smoking up with the boys." This is how my interview with Gob began.

Gob was formed in Langley, BC when founding members Thacker and Goutzinakis decided to create their own band.

  An unexpected pleasure, from the French no lessPDF files may take a moment to load

Perhaps it was an accident that led me to see a masterpiece at this year's CIFF.

As I walked towards the Uptown Theatre for the 7:00 p.m. show of The Republic of Love, I was surprised at the crowd gathered outside. The numerous suits and evening gowns suddenly tipped me off to a Gala Screening, the only place my media pass could not take me. Dejected but not defeated, I crossed the street to the Globe where the only show I could make was 8:17 Darling Street.

  Munsch on this theatre-goersPDF files may take a moment to load

Ah, the Paper Bag Princess. I don't remember when I first came across the Robert Munsch book as a kid, but I'm sure my first reaction was, "Whoa, is this ever different!"

From Oct. 3-5, the University of Alberta hosted the second of three Canada West field hockey tournaments. The Dinos once again put on an impressive performance, arguably performing better than they did at the opening tournament. That is, they played better against a team better than them, yet they played worse against a team worse than them.

The Dinos opened the weekend by severely trouncing the University of Manitoba once again, by a score of 8-0.

Despite being repeatedly smacked down, this baby-faced squad keeps coming back for more.

Heading into the weekend, the Dinos men's soccer team knew they had to pull up their proverbial socks and learn to hold a lead. Unfortunately, a Sat., Oct. 4 match up with the powerful University of Alberta Golden Bears was the same old song.

In the final episode of last year's basketball season, faithful fans of the Dinos men's team rode both high and low as hopes were bolstered, then dashed, with the team's final defeat at the hands of the University of Alberta Golden Bears. Most believed the deciding match had been poorly officiated, and wondered bitterly when the Dinos would get another chance to prove their worth as competitors in league playoffs. After all, it had been ten years since the University of Calgary had even hosted a playoff basketball game.

Brian always told the best stories. Our paths crossed for the first time during my very first week at the University of Calgary. Brian and his best friend Nick were my U of C 101 leaders. I thought I was pretty lucky to have the best-looking leaders in the whole organization, I just didn't know then that I would have friends for life. More than pretty faces, they made my first week the most welcoming experience ever and I blame Nick and Brian for getting me involved in Rugby, they talked about it so passionately that I couldn't resist.
