  AMD64 tour experience... So shiny!PDF files may take a moment to load

The allure of trade shows is inherently fleeting. There are always flashing lights and shiny things to grab people's attention, abundance of free snack food and of course the wonderful booth girls always- always-smiling. The golden rules of trade shows held true when AMD 64 came to town and showed off their computing muscle at their very own tech show held within the mighty bastion known as the Telus convention center.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Swept under the rug: Canada submits again," Nov. 25, 2004,

In his editorial, John Leung questions whether Carolyn Parrish's right to free speech is more important than improving Canada-U.S. relations. I'd like to think that farmers and loggers most affected by certain American policies would favour putting food on their tables rather than Parrish's right to embarrass the country.

  Concert Review: Beatnuts–The opposite of getting hit in the nutsPDF files may take a moment to load

Chronic passes through the air and when the bouncer warns anyone smelling like weed will not be let in, a few discreetly smell themselves. Others drink cheap Lucky beer to get drunk early with less expense. A crazy motherfucker known as "T", a.k.a. Taren Melathopolous, freestyles some mad rhymes in exchange for a small token of fame. Outside the Tequila nightclub the atmosphere is ripe with excitement for The Beatnuts rap extravaganza.

They are the unsung heroes we rarely think about. They are the men and women who take time to serve and protect their communities. Of the 12,000 firefighters in Alberta, 9,000 are volunteers whose reward for risking their lives is the gratification of knowing they have selflessly assisted friends and neighbors.

  Spun: Ja RulePDF files may take a moment to load

What happens when you've been teased constantly by 2003's biggest rapper, 50 Cent? Apparently, releasing a record whining about how much you've been badgered and sold close to zero copies because no one cares. Ja Rule releases R.U.L.E., less than a year after his last poorly received album to moan about the same old thing over the same old beats.

Some very famous and successful recording artists have come from Canada. Many Canadians know bands like Nickelback or famous divas like Celine Dion are Canadian, whether we like it or not.

Then there's Starewell, a little Calgary band with their very first full-length album, Fully Extended. Though not famous or even infamous as the aforementioned artists, their debut CD indicates they very well could be quite soon.
