  Music Interview: Wisdom from yon Marble IndexPDF files may take a moment to load

Deep within the dingy bowels of Mount Royal College, otherwise known as Liberty Lounge, three men sit around a table. A stocky bald man, clad almost entirely in black, a quiet observer with cool blue eyes is the centre. To the right is skinny; with his knit toque pulled low over long curly hair, he nervously works on a pint of the bar's finest. Then there's the talker, with brown hanging loosely on the sides of his head to frame the stubble occupying the better part of his face.

  Photography 101: Getting to know your light meterPDF files may take a moment to load

In order to achieve a perfect exposure for a photograph that is not too bright or too dark, it is important to know how the light meter works and what it is telling you. Most modern cameras have an in-camera light meter which will give an ideal exposure when the meter reads zero. Pictured above is an under-exposed reading of light, in other words, not enough light is coming into the camera, which will result in a dark photo.

  Movie Interview: The unbearable lightness of SpongebobPDF files may take a moment to load

If we've learned anything from cartoon characters, it's that you can't be stubborn and you can't be static if you want to succeed. Countless movies have an immature child take on mature traits to save the day, or a stuffy adult embracing their inner child so he or she understands how things must work out, as they always do in the end. This yin-yang balance of child and adult makes a person more whole, more versatile and it's what has made a sponge into an absorbent, yellow, porous, giggling epidemic.

  Sobriety Be DamnedPDF files may take a moment to load

The land of home brew may sound like the bastard union of the home wine making industry and redneck culture, but it has merit as a source of that which we all cherish. In a short time, those short on cash can synthesize glory in their basement or rez bathroom.

It feels right in every way. You're not providing those corporate fat cats at the beer companies with any more of your cash. And as proof that God approves, there is no GST on the materials.

The Students' Union's Political Action Week is making post-secondary education an issue in the upcoming provincial election on Mon., Nov. 22, and everybody is happy with it so far.

The verdict is in, and it's not looking good for the University of Calgary.

In a survey of graduates from 46 universities across Canada conducted by Macleans' magazine as part of their 2004 university rankings, the University of Calgary came in last place. Only 43 percent of graduates rated their experiences as very good, compared to Mount Allison University in New Brunswick on the other end of the spectrum, who had 88 percent of graduates give a very good rating.

  Aborted displayPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Last week the Campus Pro-Life club aroused controversy on campus with a large picture of an aborted fetus with "CHOICE" written above it. Obviously people on both sides feel strongly and not surprisingly the Students' Union received complaints about the display (15, we were told, although not all complaints were from students). Based on these complaints, the SU executive chose to censor the display.

  Don't votePDF files may take a moment to load

Voting makes it only slightly less of a cakewalk for the Conservatives to remain in glorious power.

Besides, for every ballot you cast, mine is worth less. I like what King Ralph has done for us yuppies and I want to keep him in power, dammit. It doesn't matter if you don't like how things are now. You can't change anything, no matter how much of an idealist you are. Oil revenues save us all.

  A letter to MomPDF files may take a moment to load

Dear Mom,

I'm just writing like I told you would, sorry its been so long since my last letter, but it took quite a while for my request for shore leave to go through. I guess I can understand why they didn't want to let the leave go through, what with me waging war single handedly against evil aliens hell-bent on destroying the earth.
