ntertainmen March 6, 1997 The Rambler Page 5 P GODFEAR: Local band headbangs to the beat of a different drummer The drummer looks like Cousin It having a seizure, the singer screams like a maniac and spends a good deal of his time or) siuije thing through the an. and the gui tar and bass players pound out unrelenting, ribcage-rattling grooves at earsplitting vol- umes. But unlike certain other local bands, you won't catch these guys encouraging fisttights, screaming obscenities or blow- ing their noses on the audience. The guys in Godfear, an Arlington band whose sound is reminiscent of Pantera, Korn, Sepuftura, Machine Head and Prong, are surprisingly amiable and low key. Mark Bond, guitarist and songwriter for the band, explains this paradox: "In about '88 or '89 1 started feeling convicted about the way 1 was living and told the guys I was quitting the band." Some time later Mike Swint (bass) asked Bond to play with the band on a pro- ject they were working on. Bond discovered th...

After main- taining their distance and some credibility amidst this "show me the money" ' phase of the sea- son, the Big Ten will have their own conference tournament. fhe Big Ten regents have given in to the multi-million dollar TV con- tracts and sponsorships . . becoming the last of the big name conferences to hold a postseason showcase. No longer will six teams make ii to the NCAA Tournament based solely on who they beat dur- ing the regular season. Merit has been sacrificed for revenue — God bless America.

Spring Break that is! Spring Break plays a huge role in college lile. It is a time to close the books and get away from the worries and stresses of studying and teaching.

ntertainmen jH ■ 11 ■w March 13, 1997 The Rambler Page 5 Come see the softer side of Stern Julie Ann Jones Stuff writer Lewd, loud-mouthed Howard Stern is a surprising success. His obscenities aren't nice, but they do make you laugh. And that's exactly what his autobiographical movie Private Parts achieves right from the start. Based on the disk jocky's best- selling 1993 bio of the same name, Parts follows Stern's life from col lege days on up. Through many outrageous talkathons, he attacks his enemies and embarrasses his friends. But this is not the whole purpose of the film. Instead, Parts seems to he more of a love story than a bawdy description of his career. Stem, who plays himself, does a decent job with his first major act- ing gig. Even though the had wig and black mustache are obvious fakes, his portrayal of a much younger Stern is quite believable. He looks extremely ridiculous and a little pathetic at this point, but of course that is the idea. Much of the cast portray t...

The tie breaker system that is.. After going 9-7 in the Heart of Texas _______________ Conference and tying East Texas Baptist for the fourth spot, things looked up for a program that hadn't had a winning conference record since 1988. Even after losing their final game to conference champion St. Mary's, the Rams season should have continued. Krishka and his team, however, came to the realiza- tion that they reached a dead end with the sound of the buzzer. That's because the tie-breaker system favored the Tigers and not the Rams. With ETBU's win over Mary Hardin-Baylor earlier that evening both the Rams and the Tigers were tied with identical 9-7 confere...

The follow- ing article came out of one of those previous issues from way back when. Just call it: The West Library: Great Place for Parties! - Do you want to go to a place where silence and bore- dom end and the fun begins? Where sneaking around to break the rules is the object of the game? Where you can 'chomp' on potato chips and 'munch' on candy bars-- as long as you don't get caught? Then maybe you should try "studying" at the Eunice and James L. West Library for a change! Known for its squeaky-clean wooden floor, it is the social gathering spot of the Wesleyan elite. This library, my fellow Rams, is a toned-down Mama's Pizza in disguise. Never a completely silent moment! Occasional foot- steps, phone rings and endless chit-chat! Do you want to catch up on the latest gossip or spread new rumors? Then the second floor is the place to be. From the looks...
