  Racism meets indomitable rockPDF files may take a moment to load

The benefit concert is a tricky beast. If you focus too much on the concert aspect, people will lose sight of the message and succumb instead to pure entertainment. If you focus too much on the message, people will get bored. It's a fact. Most people have short attention spans and little patience for preaching. So what do you do?

For the organizers of this year's Rock Against Racism, the answer was simple. The first step is to make sure you're providing a solid message. Easy enough, apparently.

  Buck 65PDF files may take a moment to load

It's been half a year since Canada's own Buck 65 started being spotted in bits and pieces across North American and international media as his album Talkin' Honkin' Blues was well-received by critics and listeners alike. While the record didn't end up reaching platinum sales or winning wide recognition from mainstream culture, Buck 65 has progressed past the underground into a zone where fame and anonymity co-exist peacefully.

He is quite pleased with where his he currently stands.

  Professor Hadley to run a marathonPDF files may take a moment to load

Don't let Professor Margaret Hadley's small stature and unassuming personality fool you. Juxtaposed with her academic proficiency and love of teaching is a dirty little marathon habit.

Those of you who know Margaret as an English professor might be surprised to learn of her 17-year long addiction to marathons--her appearance is not that of your typical jock.

  The crime of the massesPDF files may take a moment to load

It would be hard to find anyone who says they aren't affected by the music they listen to. Everyone can remember the first album they ever bought, or the time their friend played them what was to become their new favourite band. Just look at the unceasing changes in people's musical tastes from junior high through high school and it's obvious that music provides a sense of self and culture to any person who listens to it.

  Understanding over ignorancePDF files may take a moment to load

For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. To most of us, it is simply a stellar Van Halen album from the post-Diamond Dave era. However, it has been brought to my attention that some unsavoury characters have taken to using this acronym in a less than Christian context.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Mistakes were made," July 9, 1987,

I have a bone to pick with the "enlightened" decision-makers who purport to run your "newspaper." It has everything to do with things not being what they once were.

You see, in my day, the Gauntlet not only had balls and teeth but humour. Legitimate, side-splitting, knock-you-off-your-Mac-Hall-seat-spilling-coffee-all-over-the-awkward-kid-sitting-next-to-you humour.
