  State of mindPDF files may take a moment to load

Eight days before I found myself in the underground parking garage of the Drop-In Centre listening to a social worker practice his bagpipes, I drove downtown with Gauntlet photographer Chris Pedersen, an audio recorder and vague notions of the insidious link between mental illness and homelessness.

Every year, the University of Calgary drama department puts on productions of various plays. Sometimes the plays are good. Sometimes they are not good. In the interest in providing a fair and balanced view of this year's campus drama season, Gauntlet theatre geeks Ryan Pike and Jordyn Marcellus examine the first production of the year, Oedipus Tyrannos and Antigone.

Dancing has become passe for music geeks. The old cliche of a bearded dude dressed in vintage clothing, cabbie hat on his head, arms crossed, head imperceptibly moving to the beat is a woeful truth. Every now and then, though, the lights get low, the disco ball comes out and a bunch of idiots start twirling their glowsticks around.
