  NUTV Does DocumentariesPDF files may take a moment to load

They began shooting in late November, continued throughout December, and then it was time to edit. Numerous proposals were submitted, however, only four were selected. This selection meant the opportunity of a lifetime--an opportunity for first time documentary film makers to create their eight minute masterpieces. So, that's just what they did.

Editor the Gauntlet,

The referendum vote, which two weeks ago gave increased student financial support to the Dinos Athletic Programs, was a positive step for the whole campus. Most assuredly, the teams "on the bubble" are most appreciative of the student support, and they can continue to compete for U of C.

What best describes a classical saxophonist? Images that come to mind include overweight dead Europeans with no relevance to our lives. Don't let that presupposition fool your impression of Michael Ibrahim, a fresh new face in an area of so-called desolation in North America.

  Movie Review: The end of the Ramones' centuryPDF files may take a moment to load

It's officially time to admit punk is dead. Punk is no longer about rocking out in high school and not knowing why you found Judy, the girl by the smoking doors, so sexy. Now it's the power anthem for disenfranchised kids in the suburbs who didn't get the BMW for their sixteenth birthday. Punk has foregone the righteous rage and power chords of its heyday to wallow in corporate money.

  Theatre Profile: Beware of BlastPDF files may take a moment to load

It's easy to imagine a city's theatre scene as a dark and impregnable fortress. Only the most skilled thespians can penetrate its thick walls to make a living running their own theatre company. Most remain outside the walls only able to long for the rich treasures of fame and respect within. Because to stage anything you need money. And for most young upstarts the finances prove to be the biggest obstacle between them and the castle's courtyard. Many finance their projects out of their own pockets, but few make any of it back.

Somewhere in a dark basement, a punk rocker leans back in his chair and flips on the TV. It doesn't sound like anything special, but this isn't any regular basement and this certainly isn't any regular guy. Sitting amongst thousands of dollars of equipment in his own recording studio, Casey Lewis checks out the first ever music video by his band, The Failure.

"We just sent this out to MuchMusic," Lewis says, eyes glued to the screen. "We're pretty stoked about it."

The City of No Light is a diesel powered prairie cocktail buzzing with a mixture of energy and anger.

  Spun: Sleeper Set SailPDF files may take a moment to load

A fusion of Alexisonfire-esque electric guitar, simple and effective beats, and just the right amount of distortion making you think this could be the beginning of a great song, maybe even an amazing CD. Then, Sleeper Set Sail vomit all over themselves, spewing the cheesiest lyrics since 98° (the group that rocketed Nick Lachey to minor-stardom); "Darling won't you join me out here on the balcony? A million moonlit sparkles... without you I am lost at sea." Don't join him on the balcony.

  Spun: Tetrix PDF files may take a moment to load

Usually improvement is exciting. Watching a band take steps in the right direction, however small, is often immensely rewarding and leaves you eagerly anticipating what they'll do next.

Regrettably, this is not the case for Tetrix. Even though their latest album, 6, is an enormous improvement over last year's heinous atrocious 5 it's still pretty awful in its own right.
