Club de’Ville is always putting on some type of production to keep students entertained, and this movie was no exception. Friday night, “It’s Complicated” was shown and it proved to be a great beginning to the weekend. . . .
The University Activities Board sponsored a comedy night in the SMAC Friday evening; it was a kickoff to their comedy weekend. “This is the first time the UAB has done something like this, we wanted to do something different, we wanted to bring more of a variety to our club’s events,” said Megan Harnett, a general executive member of UAB. . . .
Ryan Bingham’s job and the attitude it inspires can be summed up pretty succinctly.
“You’re going to go home tomorrow and make more money than you’ve ever made in your life, and I’m going to go home without a paycheck.” . . .
Holding a shaking camera above my head while the lights in the Wachovia Center dimmed, I could feel the emotions from every spectator in the arena. From the glow sticks and cell phone lights to the elaborately decorated posters, the stadium was completely sold out. The five-year-old girl aside of me reached for her mother’s hand and stared at the stage in utter amazement. Her eyes shone with anticipation as she half stood on the chair next to me in order to see overtop the sea of heads. It was her very first concert and I knew she was not going to be disappointed. . . .
No other director in the movie industry can put so much heart into the strange and unusual the way Tim Burton does. His new movie, the remake of “Alice in Wonderland,” is no exception. In the film, 19-year-old Alice, played by Mia Wasikowaska, stumbles into Wonderland while attempting to escape a society that looks down on her different way of thinking. . . .
On March 18 Club de’Villes’ UAB sponsored free concerts started back up after Spring break. On Thursday night from 8-9:30 p.m. Brian Thomas Jackson performed for his third time at Millersville University. The last performance by Jackson was given in October and the first time he played at MU was September so before he began on Thursday night he apologized for being rusty. . . .
“Shutter Island” is a movie set in the 50s on the dark and damp Shutter Island, located off the coast of Boston, which houses a mental hospital for the criminally insane. Federal Marshall Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) meets his partner, Federal Marshall Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) on a ferry headed to the island. . . .
Tim Burton has done it again, and no, that is not a good thing.
The worst part about this movie is that it has a plot, a plot that is easy to follow and, worst of all, predictable. Summed up in a single sentence: A full grown Alice returns to wonderland to obtain the vorple sword and kill the Jabberwocky. . . .
Sweeping away our two party system
The two-party system is a failure in many ways.
But our country lives on parties so it is time to work toward the establishment of a true working-families party, that is pro-working class and not just for the elite class.
People need to come to the realization that most of their problems have happened as a result of the elite class’ will. They want to stay in power and have all the money, so they find any way to divide the rest of the population. They used the idea of race to divide ‘whites’ from ‘blacks,’ and in later times it was the Irish, and then the Italians, and the Chinese, and now the Latinos… this is all part of their game. . . .
It seems like at least once every semester we find ourselves having a debate in the editorial section of the school newspaper regarding race and race related issues. I will try to be as objective as possible, but as an African-American citizen in the U.S., this task proves difficult when discussing race and race relations. The February 25 edition of The Snapper featured an Op-Ed article concerning Affirmative Action and, despite being a young person of color, I will admit that I have my own reservations about this legislation. As someone who lives with the social reality of race in this country and who is familiar with, but not an expert on, Affirmative Action I found the article terribly misinformed and one that highlighted ignorance when considering race issues in general. . . .
