The Porn Star Party had a wet and early ending Sat., Apr. 5 when the sprinklers were activated by an unknown person, forcing the evacuation of the Den just as the bar was reaching capacity.

Currently, the University of Calgary Snowboard Club, which organized the annual event, is looking for the individual who triggered the system. They are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the person's arrest. According to Campus Security, the perpetrator is described as "apparently male and apparently very tall."

The Students' Legislative Council was wrong in imposing censure on Students' Union President Jayna Gilchrist Tue., Mar. 20. But the president performed worse.

The motion to censure, brought forward by external commissioner Jim Bailey, was apparently sparked by Gilchrist's absence to attend a screening of Discordia that same evening. The film examined the conflict at Concordia University when former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited campus (conflict due, in large part, to their students' union).

With utmost urgency, Students' Union Vice-President Operations and Finance Gavin Preston proposed new election bylaws in October after allegations of fraudulent voting during the 2003 fall by-election.

Listening to this Bad Boy compilation album it's depressing to realize how little mainstream rap has progressed from the days when Sean Combs was only a skinny punk in the shadow of hip hop monolith Notorious BIG. MCs still half-heartedly list their material possessions and their varying levels of bling, carelessly tossing them on top of overly familiar samples. And here we are celebrating the man who started it all, a man about whom a comedian once asked "who thought wearing a suit was a talent?"
