And the winner is...

Interior decorating competitions bring out the worst in everyone. It’s a high-adrenaline sport. The atmosphere is electric, the competition fierce and the stakes high. The St. Olaf “Parade of Rooms” – held March 6 from 1-4 p.m. – was no exception.

Chariots on fire

Travis Bos is back with a brand new invention. With his new band, Chariots, the ex-Song of Zarathustra front man has picked up right where he left off, this time sporting a slightly more user-friendly sound. Chariots’ debut album, Congratulations, is worthy of its title, and will no doubt be earning the group plenty of kudos in the coming year.

Mustache week grows in popularity

Mustache: the word may cause fear and revulsion in the minds of some readers. This is because many students simply do not understand the ‘stache and what it stands for, due to cultural stereotypes depicting classic ‘stache sporters as raccoon huntin’, motor-home occupants or flirtatious policemen.

At the very least, St. Olaf has a 30 year history of bad dating. However, times are changing. The hot new online social network, Facebook (www.thefacebook.com,) is the harbinger of a new day at St. Olaf.

Plants provide dorm room relief

One of the most striking features of St. Olaf is its natural beauty. Such beauty does not, however, have to stay outdoors. Many students choose to bring nature inside their rooms in the form of common houseplants.

Exorcising demons

Keanu Reeves is the sort of actor who seems designed for certain roles. Like Kevin Costner before him, Reeves is a quintessential “niche actor,” able to define a role or to destroy it completely. Fortunately for Reeves, his newest film, “Constantine” (an adaptation of the DC Comics cult classic “Hellblazer”) is more like “The Matrix” than “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.”

Arts guild involves students

Located on Division Street in downtown Northfield, the Northfield Arts Guild (NAG) stands as a long-running testament to the importance of community-based art programs.
