  Film review: One Dyke Wore WhitePDF files may take a moment to load

If you can sit through a whole episode of The Bachelor and Fear Factor, you'll do fine spending 50 minutes watching five lesbians from Calgary tell their story.

Morag and Kam cram into a Cadillac head for British Columbia with their flower girl, ring bearer, and a videographer to document their right to a legally binding marriage that will be recognized by Canadian courts.

  Rossette Guitar Duo brings it rawPDF files may take a moment to load

The classical guitar duo, Kevin Marsh and Mike Lyngstad, started out as students at the University of Alberta. It was returning from their first concert when they wrote their first tune in the car. But if it were not for the unfortunate illness of Mike's wife, Lyngstad says they would "probably still be playing standard classical repertoire."

Today the duo plays a mix of classical, contemporary, and world music influenced by genres such as jazz. They wish to enlighten and inspire other musicians.

  MUSICINTERVIEW: FutureSomebodyPDF files may take a moment to load

Everyone has fallen in love with Marta Jaciubek. With short coils curling off her head like the dark smoke from a lipstick-stained cigarette and eyes of caramel soaked bed sheets, the lead singer for Girl Nobody is an exotic vision of bedroom beauty with an angelic voice that drip off carmine lips. For most people in the Canadian press, the four other musicians in the band fades into the band's frontwoman's graceful shadow.

  Mango could use more juicePDF files may take a moment to load

Alright kids, here's irony for you. Imagine a film exploring the concept of sexual role playing, characters struggling with roles imposed by society and the uneasy balance strike as they refuse and redefine them. Now imagine this same film is so deeply mired in cliche, its characters so one-dimensional, that it defies the most formulaic Hollywood romantic comedy. It's a bit of a mind fuck, no?

  Fairy Tales more than gayPDF files may take a moment to load

In my mind, one of the main functions of art is to open up other worlds for the beholder. Movies, music, literature and drama have always been my passport to other places, my peephole into hidden lives. Through these mediums I have experience and felt, however imperfectly, childhoods in Victorian England, the jungles of Africa and storming the beaches of Normandy.

  An open letter to Paul MartinPDF files may take a moment to load

Dear Paul Martin,

I attended your rally at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre last Friday. Though your 10 minute speech was late by an hour, and your security kept a few hundred supporters and myself locked up in the cramped Henry G. D. Chow Auditorium, tardiness due to more important priorities than your potential and converted supporters is understandable.

  What!?! They have elections now?PDF files may take a moment to load

Well, he's done it. In an era of unprecedented voter apathy, and despite the ongoing Liberal scandals and their decline in the opinion polls, Prime Minister Paul Martin has called an election for Mon., June 28. While Martin is confident his party is ready for an election, the same cannot necessarily be said about voters, or in particular students.

"I can't say I've looked into it that much," said Kathryn Elliot.

  The price of winningPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I live on 5 street SW and have enjoyed the joy of winning in the playoff hockey games.

I don't mind the noise and the celebrations after a win.

I did however mind when my husband's vehicle was trashed in the early morning of Sunday, May 30 by a mindless individual who jumped on the hood of the car and then on the roof leaving in- dentations, an individual who also ripped off the passenger side mirror.

Re: "Not quite censorship," May 27, 2004,

During my tenure as a member of the executive at the University of Alberta Students' Union, we had several discussions over whether or not to shut down our webboard (http://webboard.su.ualberta.ca).

In my humble opinion, I think our webboard is slightly more vitriolic and antogonistic than yours (our SU being the brunt of most of that vitriol), but we kept the thing up.

Re: "Not quite censorship," May 27, 2004,

The University of Alberta has a webboard as well. And it is much more vitriolic and antagonistic toward our Students' Union executive. I know it was a constant pain for the executive and the insults and criticism thrown about on it were often unfair.
