Every basketball team needs a player who can bring the ball up the court, penetrate, find open players and control the rhythm of the game. For the University of Calgary Dinos that man is fifth-year guard Josh Feist.

Feist may not have a nickname, but in fulfilling these roles he is the de facto "quarterback" of the men's basketball team. He must map out the offence on the court and inevitably, as his play goes, so go the fortunes of the Dinos.

  SU Electioneering, Part IIPDF files may take a moment to load

Two-time SU president and current board of governors student rep Bryan West concludes his look at the crucial factors SU candidates must keep in mind.

4. The residence voter

A common complaint among Students' Union politicos states a candidate must be from residence to become president. There is a seed of truth to this. For instance, a large proportion of elected SU officials do come from residence. Since 2000, five out of the six presidents have come from residence.

  This Week On The Internet: Itís all about the musicPDF files may take a moment to load

There exists a spectrum upon which two different kinds of music lovers fall: those who absolutely adore classic rock radio because they can hear "Thunderstruck" 16 times an hour, and those who start fidgeting if they hear the same chord progression twice in one song. Everyone's met one of the latter-they're the people who have an mp3 library of over 4,000 songs-all in a single play-list set to shuffle-who have actually filled an 80gb iPod, and who are great DJs for parties because everyone leaves with at least one new band to pursue.

  World peace and acoustic guitarPDF files may take a moment to load

Arriving in the midst of the post-grunge explosion of the mid-'90s, Our Lady Peace quickly emerged as one of Canada's most high-profile bands. Following over a decade of touring and the release of six full-length albums, the band has taken a well-deserved hiatus. Frontman Raine Maida has taken advantage of the break to work on a solo album, re-igniting his passion for music and the phenomenon of beat poetry.

  Spun: Oxford CollapsePDF files may take a moment to load

There are two types of indie bands. The first are great bands that are indie only because they have yet to be discovered and land a major label deal. The second are bands that revel in the label of indie and churn out album after album of mediocre music, but claim they don't want to make it big, because that would be selling out.

Oxford Collapse is in no danger of ever selling-out.

  Spun: Big Shiny Tunes 11PDF files may take a moment to load

Compilation discs of mediocre artists hit the scene as often as Britney Spears' vagina is captured by the paparazzi. Big Shiny Tunes 11 stays the mean as the 11th disappointing collection by MuchMusic, achieving the usual target of sub-par production aesthetic and talent. This 19 artist, 72 minute audio abortion hurts like a running drop-kick to the chest.

  Spun: Apostle of HustlePDF files may take a moment to load

When a sprawling group of friends named Broken Social Scene released their breakthrough album You Forgot it in People in 2002 the music world went a bit crazy. An absurd amount of praise, expectations and sloppy performances followed the band everywhere they went until their inevitably disappointing follow up. Often overlooked in this hipster maelstrom is the abundance of bands who emerged from BSS's sizeable wake.

  Death rays and dee-jaysPDF files may take a moment to load

Winnipeg DJs Hunnicutt and Co-op are about to take over the world. How exactly do they plan on doing that? With their mad DJ skillz and a giant death ray, of course.

"Yeah, we've got this thing called the death ray, and we're using it to blow up a big part of the U.S.," says Tim Hoover, aka DJ Co-op. "Then that way, once we conquer Canada we'll have all of North America because the U.S. will no longer exist to stop us."
