Catfest '05 : Rufio draws 1,000 fans


The annual kickoff concert CatFest rocked the UA last night after 1,000 students showed to see Rufio and other bands, doubling last year's attendance.

The event, organized by the University Activities Board and the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, featured punk bands Rufio, The Spill Canvas and Your Name in Lights.

The Student Union Memorial Center Grand Ballroom was crowded with standing students who simply listened, or, for the more enthusiastic fans, danced, crowd-surfed or shouted the cheer "Ru-fi-ooooo!" [Read article]

2005-06 Volleyball Preview: Serving it up


Clean bill of health has Wildcats clawing to set starting roles

After enduring numerous injuries last year, the Arizona women's volleyball team is new and improved and has the luxury of a healthier and deeper roster than in seasons past.

The Wildcats, ranked No. 17 in the College Sports Television/American Volleyball Association preseason poll, welcome nine newcomers to the team this season, including six freshmen and three transfers.

"We lost (libero) Kelli Mulvany, so that was a huge position that we had to replace," said Arizona head coach David Rubio. "(Freshman) Brittany Leonard and (sophomore) Katie Jackels are the ones we're really looking forward to filling the libero's position. I think right now our biggest area of improvement needs to be in that position." [Read article]

It's coming to a theater near you

"The Aristocrats" is probably the most star-studded film in Hollywood history. But surprisingly, what's drawing critics and audiences alike to this homemade film is its reputation for being one of those indescribable films that you have to see for yourself to understand.

This may be because it is a film of another color, one that doesn't quite fall into any category of cinema. It centers around one joke, the oldest and coincidentally the dirtiest joke in history, told and performed by some of the best-known comedians in the world. [Read article]
