Comedian show still a goal for ASUA


Chances of finding a high-profile comedian to perform this semester are slim, with student leaders running into obstacles, including scheduling conflicts.

The Associated Students of the University of Arizona wanted a comedian to entertain students, which they originally intended to happen sometime this week, but student leaders are having difficulty securing talent to perform this semester.

Fernando Ascencio, the ASUA Speakers' Board director, said they are still pursuing some of the nation's top comedians for a comedy show before the semester ends but "the possibility keeps decreasing." [Read article]

If you slapped some fake tits on him, then dolled him up in a wig and makeup, Gael García Bernal would be just as hot as a woman. Fortunately, he's still all man after filming "Bad Education," in which he plays a gender-bending director trying to turn a friend's traumatic childhood into a film.

At 27, Bernal is a rarity in cinema, rising to fame and heartthrob status by acting exclusively in Spanish-language films. He banged his brother's wife in "Amores Perros," had a three-way with his real-life best friend in "Y Tú Mamá También" and played a seductive priest in "El Crimen del Padre Amaro." [Read article]

No living human is a stranger to pain. But why do humans choose to endure pain in exchange for something as aesthetic as a tattoo or piercing?

When asked why she got so many piercings, aerospace engineering junior Brittany Neverman gave the most honest answer.
