ASUA backs bigger Rec


With the help of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, the Student Recreation Center hopes to increase nearly 50 percent in size by 2009, with the elimination of wait times for students being one of the main concerns.

Kristie Fox hates to lose - just ask her siblings.

Calling Crispin Glover's directorial debut "What is It?" disturbing is a start.

Calling it intelligent and ultimately thought provoking is the next step.

After that, the reactions could range from "absurd" to "obscene" or "absurdly obscene." Or "obscenely absurd," depending on the kind of films you like.

Glover - whose first big role was a teenaged George McFly in "Back to the Future" and later starred in features like "Willard" and "Bartelby" - will be in town starting tomorrow to support the weeklong run of his directorial debut "What is it?" at the Loft Cinema. [Read article]
