Arcade Fire ventures back to suburbia When Arcade Fire's leader Win Butler and his younger brother, Will, grew up in the suburbs of Houston, they probably didn't foresee it would serve as the muse for their latest album, "The Suburbs.," While the Montreal septet has produced three diverse re- cords over the last six years, "Suburbs" has the most tracks to date. It dives into the personal details and yearning ques- tions of what it means to be a child with ambitions. The ""opening title track will surprise listeners with its airy and calm sound. This song is the light- est song Arcade Fire has ever produced. An animated piano, consistent beats, all tied to vocals, shifts the tone of the re- cord from happy- go-lucky to serious- ness. Arcade Fire goes deeper the Samethan homogenous proper- ties. The band mem- bers present a mix of emotions rooted in their upbringing. Songs evoking feel- ings ranging from regret to fondness create rich music, almost as valuable as "Funeral," its first...

Best Burger Denton Co. Hamburger Various locations Fort Worth has Kincaid's, Dallas has Jake's and we have Denton County Hamburger Co. After scooting through the serving line and helping themselves to some of the best fries this side of the Atlantic, customers must confront their in- timidating plate. The contents of the burger are about twice the amount that should fit within the bun, so prepare for a messy, delicious encounter. A heaping mound of shredded cheddar cheese' spills out from all sides as you close the lid with a squeeze and a crunch from the toasted bun. Be sure to wear stretchy pants and a painter's smock to enjoy one of the best burgers around. —Josh Pherigo, Staff Writer INDEPENDENT ■HAP CDMPAHY —H—S—*- i—S—4—S—^ t i! *, \ i ' r-rt L 1 — . ; .

Best Coffeehouse Art Six 424 Bryan St. Located at 424 Bryan St., Art 6 is the perfect house-turned-coffee shop. Ifs quaint, colorful and is filled with delicious coffeehouse dishes and friendly baristas. This year Art 6 was chosen as "best coffeehouse" by read- ers.

/ By Kip Mooney • Editor-in-Chief I s anyone enjoying a better year than Betty White? Sure, Barack Obama became the first black president of the United States, but then he promptly aimed for getting the lowest approval ratings possible. Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the Best Direc- tor Oscar for "The Hurt Locker," but maybe five people saw her movie. So as far as success and admiration go, no one had more of both than the former Golden Girl. It all started with her role in "The Proposal," the so-so Sandra Bullock vehicle. As Ryan Reynolds' feisty-but-love- able grandma, she saved an otherwise yawn-inducing romantic comedy. Then came her triumphant Super Bowl commercial for Snickers. During a particularly rough game of tackle football, she dishes out the trash talk with men 60 years her junior. When one guy accuses her of "playing like Betty White," she lashes back. "That's not what your girlfriend said last night." And then things really picked up for the six-time E...

Beating the Texas Heat Part 111: Animal Adventures Story and photos by Christina Mlynski • Staff Writer What if there was a way to make a short day trip to experience some- thing Texas offered that doesn't seem conventional? Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose is an all-day adventure that leaves the biggest skeptic impressed. The park has been around for almost 40 years, and it's not hard to see why.

There are many ways to tour Fossil Rim. The Adventure Tour comes with a Safari Jeep and the opportunity to meet animal specialists. The Behind the Scenes Tour offers visitors the chance to go to restricted areas and experience a day in the life of a worker. The Photog- raphy Tour provides photo advocates who can come and take pictures of the landscape alongside beauty shots of the animals. The Scenic Drive Tour, my fa- vorite, is in an air-conditioned car, self- paced and gives you a chance to expe- rience the wide range a@f animals while putting your photography skills to the test. There are 34 different types of ani- mals at Fossil Rim from Africa and sur- rounding continents, like wildebeests, rhinoceros and ostriches. Fossil Rim is almost a two-hour drive that does not feature a lot of scen- ery, but trust me — your patience will be rewarded once you finally get there. The wildlife center is open from March 13 to November 1. Check its website for daily discounts and coupons bef...

Horseback riding in Texas PMeople who travel across state can appreciate the landscape, the scenery and the horses. Add a sunset to the picture and you're in an Ansel Adams picture come to life. Horses and horseback riding are staples in Texas. The activity has been synonymous with the Lone Star State since the Spanish first introduced horses to Texas in the 1600'Si The move, which helped to usher in an era of cowboys vs. Indians, and then later made John Wayne a household name and icon, also brought a kind of romantic feel to the South. Upon the arrival of the horse, Texas was no longer just a battleground — a destination for conflict with harsh weather and rough terrain. Suddenly, the state was also home to a majestic creature that would help bring industrializa- tion to the nation and beau ty to the South. As a native Texan, I have to admit, somewhat sheepishly, that up until recently not only had I never ridden a horse, but also that I was afraid to go near one. Although I don'...

Hps tbr Beginners ftcm Meny Happen 1. If you have never ridden a horse before, contact a professional who can give you beginner lessons. While professional horseback riders can make horseback riding look effortless, attempting to ride without proper instructions can be dangerous. 2. Remember to try to be calm when first encountering horses. The animals can pick up and react to nervous or hostile behavior. 3. When passing behind a horse, let one hand trail on the horse's side and backside to let the horse know that you are present and not to kick for any reason. 4. Remember to wear clothing that will allow you to move easily and that will not distract you or the horse. Tennis shoes are ideal for beginners. 5. Use a stepping stool to mount a full-grown horse. 6. Mounting from the horse's left side: Place your left foot into the stirrup and lightly swing your right leg around the horse. Place your right foot into the other stirrup. 7. Contrary to past practice, professionals agree tha...

Sunday "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" Starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Anna Kendrick This film will be overshadowed by its competition as "Eat Pray Love" and "The Expendables" will swallow up both female and male demographics. Both of those films make me want to vomit, so after graduation, I'm going to see this adaptation of the graphic novel star- ring Michael Cera, who must defeat his new flame's seven evil exes (including Chris Evans, Jason Schwartzman). So get ready for plenty of mano a mano, com- plete with "Batman"-style word balloons (POW! ZAP!) to accent the fights. The Goo Goo Dolls w/ Switchfoot Superpages.com Center, Dallas 7 p.m. The band found its way into every impressionable young girl's heart with its ballad "Iris" more than a decade ago. So why go see a band with a lead singer who looks like he wears a skunk on his head and a bass player who still thinks it's OK to dress like a goth girl? Because, well, the band rocks. I'm not ashamed of my love fo...
