DENTON RAPPERS MAKE NOISE BY ASH LEY GRANT or years, Texas rap music has re- volved around the city of Houston and its chopped, screwed, syrup soaked sound. But in a town known more for its jaa ana indie rock than its rhymes and trunk- rattling beats,, a group of young up-and-coming artists in Southeast Denton are trying to put their city's hip hop on the map. Clad in a red Texas Ranges T-shirt and shorts, Chris Avant, better known as AV the Great, toggles between programs on the computer in his apartment-turned-studio in Southeast Den- ton He plays a track that samples the late Billie Holiday, and as the music buzzes in the back- ground, Avant explains why he thinks the Den ton rap scene is close to making it mainstream "It's not just about where you re at or what you're doing, he said "It's about what you're doing where you're at. Any opportunity I get to put my city on my back, I'm going to take i and I m going to run with it." Avant said rappers in Denton are remarkably diverse,...

Denton resident Darcy Neal does not like to pigeonhole herself The catalyst fop Heal s many artistic endeavors, which includes building oscillators and electronic sound manipulators for musicians around the U.S., was a traditional art farm: painting. She grew up painting, but as the years went by her interest wandered. "There's something missing," Real said. "You can put all of your work into this painting, but then no matter what it's just going to hang on the wall, and it s ju,si this two-dimensional picture. It just wasn't enough." Nowadays, she also takes to circuit bending to feed her artistic hunger. About six. years ago Neal found out about circuit bending through a friend who directed hef to an article in Make magazine, a publication that focuses on do- it-yourself projects involving electronics, metalworking and more. Intrigued by the musical possibil...

ON THE RECORD from new artists. Despite owning an mp3 player and a sizable digital music library on his laptop, drawing and paint- ing senior Cameron Hinojosa said there was a unique appeal to lis- tening to music on a record player. "^nii have to pick up a piece of music and put it on the record player instead of just moving your mouse and pressing play,Hinojosa said. After inheriting 227 of his par- ent's records, Hinojosa went to Mad World Records at 115 West .Hickory to start on a collection of modern vinyl that he can pass down to his children. "Playing a record, it will sound the same no matter what," Hinojo- sa said, 'Tin hearing the sarrie tone that my dad used to hear. It's kind of a view from that point and that time In their life, it s more of a per- sonal message." Mad World sells used albums and new vinyl from modern artists, including 25 local bands, as well as CDs, T-shirts and other music memorabilia. Owner Mark Rurke said it was dif- ficult keeping a record sto;re a...

ONTHE RECORD T irrie is funny. Minutes can seem In last hours, yet years can fly by in what feels like minutes. My two years with the North Texas Daily and On The Record magazine have been filled with long hours, deadlines and traditional cud of week trips to Cool Beans. I wouldn't change any of it. I never thought I would have to write what has become a Daily tradition: the editor-in-chief's farewell Letter. When I was sitting in professor Kathie Hinnen's JOUR 2320 " News W riting and Reporting class in fall 2010, all I was worried about was meeting the semester's story quota and not making a fool of myself in the process. Two years and plenty of stories later, it is time for this graduating student to bid adieu. No one obtains this position without the help and teaching of others. Without the advice and guidance of professors Hinnen and Tracy Eyerbach, I would not feel ready to head out into the post- college world. I can never thank them enough for their valuable lessons on ethic...

Managing editor Nadia Hill compiled the information and quotes into the article on the next page. We hope to accurately tell a poignant account of what happened that afternoon, and represent the extent of the destruction. By Nadia Hill and James Coreas

ON THE RECORD ARTS EDTION Keith Dennis heard the sirens wailing from two miles out, patiently listening and waiting for his sister's voice on the other line to reassure him she was alive. She was wrapped in blankets, pad- ded by all of her pillows and huddled under a foam mattress topper in a closet. The wind screamed and windows shattered. He knew she was rain soaked, alone and in shock. An hour later, Dennis and his 22-year-old sister Sarah Torrey picked apart her life, one scrap at a time, and looked over as her neighbors did the same to their homes. The buckled brown wooden beams were piled across the bleak landscape for miles after one of the deadliest tornadoes in Oklahoma history destroyed homes and took lives. At 2:56 p.m. May 20,16 minutes after a tornado warn- ing was issued for the area, an EF-5 twister ripped a 12- mile path across southern Oklahoma for 40 minutes, with winds peaking at 210 mph. The storm killed 24 people, seven of them children after two elementary scho...
