Editor, the Gauntlet

My name is Kelly St. Jean and I am the other student senator that was removed from the [U of C] senate in 2001. Not that it matters after this many years, nor does it surprise me what happened to [Student Senator Nick] Vuckovic.

  War of two worldsPDF files may take a moment to load

Reams of self-congratulatory faxes and press releases, vitriolic rhetoric on the airwaves, and increased nation-wide demand for Grecian Formula for Men all point to one thing: The election cometh.

However, university campuses across the West betrayed that fact months before the federal Liberals make that pronouncement. In the last twelve months, the feds lavished Canadian universities, particularly those in the untamed West, with all sorts of incentives.

  Various ArtistsPDF files may take a moment to load

I first came across One Take around late February or early March. After a few listens I wrote an uninspired, if not terrible, review of the disc and due to its complete lack of quality, it never saw the light of day. I was not surprised. The album was quickly whisked into my pile of CDs to sell which should have sealed its fate. But here I am, months later, having another go at a review. Time hasn't changed too much, in regards to my opinion on this bloated album from the fine people at Alma Records.

  Mario WinansPDF files may take a moment to load

I was excited to review this CD since I heard the first single "I Don't Want to Know" on the radio. Mario Winans' soft, caramel voice sings about ex-lovers, cheating bitches and hard times through all 17 album tracks. He may whine for most of them, but it is the good kind of whining. His voice makes you feel warm and fuzzy and you can imagine Mario singing about your ex-boyfriend for you during a good fucking.
