photo Going X-treme!

Players, promotion and profanity unite in video game club

Video games are the new religion. Video games are the new sex partner. Video games are the new social scene.

These declarations come from the costumed and heavily sarcastic members of a new campus social club. Video Game Xtreme plowed its way onto the UA club scene this semester and has since become "the best club on earth," according to its founder, Malcolm Berman. [Read article]

photo Mamma Mia!

Good ol' times with the family: ╬Mamma Mia!' hits Centennial Hall

You recognize the music and sing along. You dance like you've never danced before ... or at least, like you've never danced in a long time. You feel like everyone you're with is family, like everyone is the same and yet you are all special and unique.

Can you really be at a Broadway show?

Actually, yes, you can. For all of this magic to happen, you must be at UApresents' presentation of "Mamma Mia!" [Read article]

photo Angelina Jolie finds a different kind of treasure

Angelina Jolie: humanitarian, new mother, movie star and object of desire for men everywhere.

She'll be back this summer, sexier than ever, revisiting the title role in the action/adventure flick "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life."

Since she made seven million dollars for the first film, the public may only see monetary factors in Jolie's decision to do a second "Tomb Raider." But Jolie said the filmmakers offered her much more than money. [Read article]

photo Movie Review: ╬Identity' #1 at box office today, forgotten tomorrow

Are American audiences stupid, or is Hollywood just treating us that way?

Whoever came up with the idea for "Identity" probably didn't want to treat anyone any way in particular, but just had a good idea for a movie. Or at least something that could have been a good idea for a movie.

Somewhere between this first moment of creativity and the film's release, something went terribly wrong. The good idea was pushed into a little two-minute spiel at the end of the film, and the monkeys who make Hollywood movies read the computer printouts in their little cells, cut and pasted from all the slasher films ever made, and pieced together the final product.

Commentary: Coffee shops serve up more than caffeine

The University of Arizona can do without the fancy new student union, all the dreadful art sculptures around campus and even the recorded band music that blasts at the noon hour. However, one thing a college cannot do without is coffee shops. I am surprised that college sports teams are not called the Mochas or Double Lattes yet. They could have chants like, "We have more froth." Anyway, my point is that students rely on coffee, more than anything else, to graduate from college. [Read article]

photo DVD Review: 50 Cent - The New Breed

All right, all right ¸ 50 Cent is America's new favorite rapper and guilty pleasure. Why? I'm not sure but apparently he's doing something right.

Just in time for tax returns is a DVD follow-up to his multi-platinum selling Get Rich album. What you'll get, for roughly the same price as a CD, is a 20-minute promotional documentary in which 50 attempts to tell his life story, from struggling unknown rap artist/crack seller to America's favorite new youth role model.

Trey Anastasio
Plasma

In his day job, Trey Anastasio is the guitar virtuoso behind the jam flagship that is Phish. There are few guitar players on the planet who can match Anastasio's effortless riffs and originality. The guy can tear through just about any piece of guitar tablature that's been written and take its key elements to dizzying new heights.

After Phish went on hiatus a few years back, Anastasio joined the three-piece Oysterhead along with Primus bassist Les Claypool and Police drummer Stewart Copeland. The band recorded an album, toured behind it and then went on hiatus as well. Somewhere before or after that, Anastasio recorded a self-titled debut solo record. The record was jazzier, funkier and more centered than anything put on wax for Phish or Oysterhead. [Read article]
