  Boils, the death of cattle, and hip hopPDF files may take a moment to load

It's three in the morning. You're perspiring, you're tired, you're wired and if you don't get this done you're going to be fired. We've all had nights like these, despite planning and effort. Some people can't handle the pressure, but for some, this is fuel for success.

I'm revelling as hip hop rockets skyward with intelligence and wit. I'm not saying that hip hop as a genre has never done this before, but there has seldom been such a compelling bridge between popular culture and one of the oldest stories in existence.

  Cocktails and humpingPDF files may take a moment to load

Late night cocktails gone awry? Hardly.

It's 2 a.m. and you and a few choice guests are arriving home from an exhausting night on the town. Ah, the infamous after party. Still pumped from the night and desperately wanting to keep the good times rolling, you grab a couple glasses, pour drinks all around, and start in with the late night, almost always obscene, conversation.

Welcome to the first act of Edward Albee's three-act play, Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? Take a sip, relax, and let the games begin.

It's the greatest indoor show on campus. It's time for the wheat to be separated from the chaff. It's time for the pretenders to fall back and the champions to step up. It's the Husky Dino Cup.

A proposed women's centre received tentative support from the Students' Union.

Desiree Kopp spoke on behalf of the Campus Women Resource Centre at the Tue., Oct. 21 Students' Legislative Council meeting. In a non-binding vote, 12 councillors supported a women's centre in MacEwan Student Centre.

"It's a clear indication to [SU Vice-President Operations and Finance] Gavin [Preston] to research further and come up with a solid solution," said SU President Jayna Gilchrist.

  Once Upon a Time in the MidlandsPDF files may take a moment to load

Dusty town roads, deserted streets, tumbleweeds, spittoons and showdowns. The bad guy always gets what's coming to him, and the good guy always gets the girl.

Shane Meadows' Once Upon A Time In The Midlands brings back the nostalgia of all those old flicks featuring Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, and... Hugh Grant?

  New Women's Volleyball CoachPDF files may take a moment to load

Behind every strong man is a strong woman--or so the adage goes. While this is often used in reference to politicians and their significant others, it could well be tweaked to fit this year's installment of the Dinos women's volleyball team.

  Raining raining, on the hockey pitch...PDF files may take a moment to load

At a tournament where the official weather report was for rain, monsoon rain, and rain of biblical proportions, it's a wonder they played at all.

The third Canada West field hockey tournament took place at the University of British Columbia Oct. 17-19. The Dinos won half their games, which put them, once again, in third place. This third-place finish means that the Dinos will not be going to Nationals, as only the top two Canada West teams are invited.

Many saw this weekend as a make-or-break proposition for the Dinos men's soccer team. Here's to hoping it wasn't.

After a week off of Canada West action, the Dinos took to the pitch Sun., Oct. 19 against the Trinity Western University Spartans. The Spartans were primed for the match, fresh off a 6-1 shellacking of the University of Lethbrindge Pronghorns two nights earlier. The Dinos' rust and Trinity's sharpness showed on the pitch, as the home side stumbled to a 4-1 defeat.
