TOO 2 The Rambler October 4, 2000 News Smallwood Foundation Grant funds new weightroom equipment Shelly Wright _ EDITOR IN CHIEF Wesleyan athletes say the new weight room equipment is an improvement over last year's facilities. The University received a $14,000 grant, which was used to purchase a Paramount 5000 multi-station workout center, in addition to new benches, weight racks, mirrors, a stereo and speakers, bells, weight belts and a security box for stereo equipment. A mural was also painted on the wall of the weight room. Funds for the new equipment were provided by the Smallwood Foundation, a charitable orga- nization that provides more than $400,000 a year to schools and organizations on a primarily edu- cational basis. Rick Piersol, senior vice president of Bank One, the trustee of the Smallwood Foundation, visited Wesleyan and inspected the new equip- ment Sept. 21. Piersol said, "I think [the equipment] looks great. Obviously it's getting a lot of use, and "We picked equ...

4 The Rambler October 4,2000 Campus Life Does your roommate burn you up 9 Donna Haney campus Life editor For most of us, years of watching NBC's Friends have given us the impression that we have a fairly firm grasp on the way this whole roommates thing is supposed to work. While Monica and Rachael may argue over a missing pair of earrings, we all know that by the end of the half hour, they will be bonding over a failed romance or laughing together at the antics of "Ugly Naked Guy." It is one of those little things in life we learn to rely on. The sun will come up tomor- row, it will rain right after you wash your car and roommates will form a lifelong bond that will prove stronger than fights over guys, food or money. That's the way it was preor- dained to be. You get your packet of dorm infopWrtion in the mail and you learn the name of your soon to be "newest and bestest bud." You move your things into your new home, anxiously waiting for the moment of that first memorable meeting....

i:.. • i- • , r - v 'K,' <}'" 8 6 The Rambler Sports Katherine Wier STA FF WRITER Last Wednesday the women's volleyball team ended its seven-game losing streak by beating Texas Women's University in four games. This came on the heels of a Tuesday night match where the Rams encountered the number four-ranked team in the region, Abilene Christian University, and were soundly beaten in three games. Against Abilene Christian University, the Rams came out sluggish, committing several service errors and numerous hitting errors, including a match-ending hitting error that seemed to define the lop-sided 6-15, 3- 15, 9-15 loss. As a team, the Rams recorded only 17 kills, five of which were by middle blocker Leighann Krey. Head Coach Rick Johansen was dismayed by the loss. "We just didn't play very well. Right now we are still playing us, combine that with a good team and we are going to lose, and lose decidedly. That is what happened," said Coach Johansen. "We let ourselves get intimidate...

Entertainment The Rambler October 4, 2000 7 Newly released Hendrix box set proves Jimi was the greatest guitarist _ Matthew Smith STAFF WRITER The four CD, 56 song Jimi Hendrix box set (which also includes an 80 page booklet of cool facts and pics and a hefty $60 price tag) is probably the year's best musical release. That it comes from a guy 30 years dead can be considered two ways. The late, great rock critic Lester Bangs wrote about the little brother of his friend whose favorite bands were The Doors, The Yardbirds and Cream. Bangs opined that those bands were great. It was sad no modern bands of like quality existed for the poor kid to admire. Another argument says great music is timeless. Otherwise, no one would still lis- ten to the likes of Beethoven, Sinatra, Muddy Waters or The Beatles. Both sides contain merit. Sadly, none of today's music comes close to Hendrix. Still, it is great to finally hear these songs. Like the Beatles Anthology records, the Hendrix set consists ma...

With the big sign boasting that it was "The Scariest Haunted House in Texas," my hopes were pretty high. At first, I couldn't really understand why there were so many people making their way out of the huge skull entrance until 1 made it through the extensive line. Now, let me save you some time. Be pre- pared to pay almost $40 or take your date somewhere else! It helps if you tell yourself that you're paying for the big goblin that stands 30 feet or so at the entrance. Your entry fee also pays for the free round of paintball that comes with the tickets. Don't get me wrong. This house of horror does have its moments. A few of the rooms and corners are...

4 The Rambler October 1.!, 2000 Campus Life Prayer won't protect you from AIDS or your free will October is the month set aside for ghosts and gob- lins and all the scary things that go bump in the night. It probably isn't a coincidence thai it is also "AIDS Awareness Month." After all, AIDS and HIV are overwhelmingly frightening concepts, or at least they should be. All of us deal with fear at some point in our lives, though the source of fear is different. I have cowered in a pantry, with my husband standing over me with a pot of boiling water, threatening to pour it on me if I said one more word. I have thrown everything I could grab in five minutes into the trunk of my car, all the while looking over my shoulder, terrified he would drive up and carry out his threats to kill me if I ever tried to leave him. I have known the kind of fear that feels like some- one just reached down and jerked my heart up into my throat. But 1 have never known the kind of terror that 1 experienced l...

' • ,.;,•; • 'v./ 6 The Rambler October 11, 2000 Entertainment Save Get Carter for home video rental Matthew Smith STAFF EDITOR When a studio fails to screen a film, as it did with Get Carter, it's a bad sign. It does this because it knows the film stinks but it wishes to make quick opening weekend cash before reviews and word of mouth chase customers away. The curiosity here is that Get Carter, while nothing great, is no train wreck either. It is certainly not an Avengers or Eye of the Beholder caliber disaster. Hard as it is to believe now. Rocky, Sylvester Stallone's first hit, was actually a good movie. The boxing was secondary to a touching tale of redemption, loneliness and personal triumph. Time and dreadful sequels watered the original down too much to be considered a classic today, but it was effective and moving in its time. Rocky propelled Stallone from nobody to somebody and he cashed in making awful films and forgetting where he started. Age c...

4 The Rambler October 18, 2000 Campus Life Flaming pants or growing noses: these liars got busted! They are told everyday. Some call them "exaggera- tions of the truth" or "stretching the truth," but we all know what they are, LIES! None of us are proud of them, but we all have our "tall tales." They are the skeletons in the back of our closets and some have been kept hidden very well. Others, however, are not so fortunate. From "little white lies" to completely, "bold-faced false- hoods of fame," people are caught in lies all the time. It seems like Wesleyan may have some of the worse liars around. Unfortunately, I cannot com- pletely exclude myself from this category. I must admit, I have told a few "fibs" of my own. I wasn't thinking very clearly one night when I was talking to a girl whom I had a crush on. As the minutes turned to hours, I decided to give my then current girl- Luke Petty friend a call to say goodnight. Not wanting to say goodbye to this new little sweet- heart, ...

Wesleyan had suffered a 4-2 defeat by the same team earlier in the season when playing in Fort Worth. The Rams were looking for revenge. The game, however, did not go in the favor of Wesleyan, with IWU demonstrating exactly why they are conference champions. In what turned out to be a rela- tively one-sided affair, Wesleyan's goal was under constant threat. It took Incarnate Word thirty minutes to open the scoring with their for- ward just beating sophomore keeper Megan Jones to the ball. Eight minutes later, the score was 2-0, and Incarnate Word began to look comfortable. The score at the half-time break remained the same, with Wesleyan having been outplayed for the majority of the first period. If there was to be a Wesleyan comeback, it was dismissed after o...
