Dating at St. Olaf can be a murky and shallow pond in which to swim. Complaints about the sparse pickings are heard all across the hill; it seems most people are either in a very serious relationship on the path to matrimony or simply single. The small number of people on campus may be one of the causes of this phenomenon. Random hook ups and unpleasant breakups are all the more painful on a small campus, where a run-in with an old fling is practically inevitable.

With darkly elemental cinematography reminiscent of The Matrix, The Crow, and last summers 28 Days Later, the recently-released Underworld depicts a blue, tenebrous scene, heavy with bloodshed and century-ancient feuds. Werewolves (here, called Lycans) are at odds with Londons night-crawling vampire clans, all for reasons that remain unknown to viewers until the last stretch of the action-packed film. What viewers do know is that vampiress Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a Lycan-hunting death dealer, is out to uncover the truth behind the age-old war.
Does anybody on this campus own Deep Throat? Im going through an informal pornographic education, and Im starting with the classics. I checked Stotella and then realized I knew at least 25 men in my residence hall who owned porn. Who needs to download when a pornographic wonderland is just steps down the hall? I made the rounds, knocked on a few doors, browsed some bookshelves, but no Deep Throat. A friend offered to loan out some other films, however, so I took him up on it.
Howie Day has a unique talent. If anything, the art of live performance is the true measure of an artist and his vision. Day is one of the more powerful and evocative examples of a truly laudable live performer, and despite the oppressive heat at the Cities 97 Concert in the Park in Shakopee on Sept. 7, he delivered a brief yet quintessential performance.
