Tonko Realty Advisors Ltd., owners of Westhills Towne Centre and other properties in Calgary, secured a demolition permit for the 93-year-old building, but their development plans remain unapproved by the city. What details have been made public for the 800 block of 17th Ave. SW have upset many Calgarians.

  Dinos threatenedPDF files may take a moment to load

What is $6? The average university student would probably say a jug of beer at the Den on Thursday night. Inexpensive as that $6 is, it could decide whether or not many of the 500 University of Calgary varsity athletes play on the Dinos next year.

  Ballers "home" in on victoryPDF files may take a moment to load

Just like the Jeffersons, the Dinos men's basketball team is "movin' on up." After defeating the Simon Fraser University Clan Fri., Jan. 28 and the Trinity Western University Spartans Sat., Jan. 29, the men are sittin' pretty (pronounced: pre-TAY) on top of Canada West's mountain division.

Things started off a leetle shaky for the Dinos according to Assistant Head Coach Wayne Thomas.

"We didn't play particularly well on Friday."

  The march of the democratizersPDF files may take a moment to load

Iraq's most recent elections represent only a conditional victory for the U.S. Joining Israel, Turkey, and Kuwait as the only democratic-esque states in the Middle East, Iraq now acts as a foothold of freedom in a part of the world accustomed to authoritarian rule, where U.S.-style democracy tops few lists of desirable values.

  Spun: Roses Are RedPDF files may take a moment to load

Just because their cover art looks like a picture taken of a band member’s girlfriend with a disposable camera, doesn’t mean Roses Are Red sound like amateurs. On their Trustkill Records debut, the four boys prove they can sound as pretty and sensitive as their brooding stares promise.

  Spun: ...And you will know us by the Trail of DeadPDF files may take a moment to load

That was disappointing.

After the phenomenal success 2002's Source Codes and Tags, the long awaited new Trail of Dead album should have been a life-altering, consciousness-expanding, brain-shatteringly good. Though you can't fault a band for failing to reach near impossible standards, you certainly can fault them for making a crappy album, and when it comes right down to it: Worlds Apart is pretty damn crappy.

  Spun: The FeverPDF files may take a moment to load

You will be intoxicated. Your otherwise bland floundering will be susceptible to the repetitious looping (bop/pop) and your body will convulse to mimic the beat. Fuck not with destiny. But please remember, cut the strings connecting the puppet and we can no longer prophesize your future.
