The Rambler February 16, 2000 3 Men's basketball first in conference Natasha Garcia stafYwriter With the last two conference wins against St. Edward's and Texas Lutheran, men's basketball continues in first place in the Heartland Conference. .On Feb. 9, Wesleyan faced St. Edward's in another exciting game at home. "It was a phenomenal game," said head coach Terry Waldrop. "[St. Edward's] played great." The Rams maintained the lead for most of the game, despite the lopsided foul situation. By the end of the game Wesleyan had received 10 more fouls than its opponents. With 1.2 seconds left on the clock, St. Edward's obtained its lirst lead of the game with a score of 82-80. Al ter crossing half court with the ball, the Rams called a time out to set up the last play of the game. Junior guard Erley Jackson was used as a decoy as senior guard Robert Allen came off of a double screen at the top of the key. From halfcourt, the ball was inbounded to Allen, who had just enough time to sink a...

Is this Macbeth i 1 Play festival a success see before me? Dustin Fockler EDrrdR in'cm 11 Stage West's performance of William Shakespeare's MacBeth may not be extraordinary, but it isn't negligible, either. Set between the first and second World Wars, it accurately follows the ongi- ■ nal play, which narrates the proph- esy-tempered rise and fall of the title character, an ambi- tious Scottish nobleman. What I will say is this: Stage West's version is good. The acting, as a whole, is strong. Especially of note are the perf ormances of Evette Perry-Buchanan as Lady Macbeth and Ashley Wood as Banquo. Perry-Buchanan injects her character with a powerful fire despite being "unsexed," her Lady Macbeth is almost sultry. She tears through her dialogue with Macbeth, hurling rebuke at him as if she were the brain of the operation and Macbeth only ' the muscle. Wood, as Banquo, encour- aged my empathy, which I think is important in his role. 1 was more affected by his death than any other. He...

ge wilts Blood/lowers r~ Mait Smith STAFF WRITER Numerous once vital musi- cians fit the profile of graying per- formers who produce music that doesn't matter, and sadly, The Cure's career now follows that path. They can shoot horses, but not washed up rock bands, appar- ently. The Cure fueled '80s music with memorable moments influencing pop, punk, new wave and Goth along'the way. However, Bloodflowers, their latest, is essentially a product released to promote the current tour and milk more money from unwary fans. Don't expect the next "Killing an Arab" or "Boys Don't Cry" on this CD. They're not here. Random hints to old Cure motifs and bits of cool guitar hol- lowly echo what once was. Most songs ape "Fascination Street's" several-minutes-of-music-with- lyrics-toward-the-end formula. What worked for "Fascination Street," because it was a great song, grows quickly tedious here. however. "Maybe Someday" and "39" comprise the best of the nine new tracks, for what it's worth.

ij l Wonder Boys: two quirky characters Mait Smith STAFF WRITER . 7 Wonder Boys marks the year's first truly wonderful film. With Oscar nominations written all over it, it is surprising the studio did not release this closer to Christmas. The film chronicles a few tense days of Grady Tripp (Michael Douglas), English pro- lessor and author. Tripp's first novel placed him on the literary map. Now several years later he finds himself unable to pen a follow-up. Instead of writer's block, Grady is unable to stop writing and his novel has reached absurd length. Tripp's problems com- pound when his wife leaves him and he finds he lias impregnated the university chancellor (Frances McDormand), who is the wife of Tripp's boss. On top of that, his editor (Robert Downey Jr.) arrives, pressuring delivery of the new, uncompleted manu- script. Two students add to Tripp's grief. Live-in student Hannah (Katie Holmes) offers unwanted sexual advances while James Leer (Tobey Maguire) simply will not g...

Hot damn, these are good tamales \ Julie King MANAGING EDITOR It may have a funny name, hut Hot Damn, Tamales!, located on Magnolia Street near Fort Worth's hospital district, serves, some—ahem—damn good tamales. Filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, vegetables and spices, 1 lot Damn's signature food is truly one of a kind. And so is the company. Founded by Angele Stavron, who is not much older than your typi- cal college student, it is more like a one-food specialty Hickory Farms than an eatery. As proof, the tiny hub across from the famous Paris Coffee Shop is expanding its packaging and dis- tribution area while keeping its sit- down dining area to three small tables. My friends and J sat at one of those tables after giving our orders to the cheerful Stavron, who does- n't seem like a budding entrepre- neur when you first meet her. We each ordered lunch plates ($4), consisting of three tamales of our choice of six flavors, plus tor- tilla chips and salsa. Because of what Strav...

Oasis: Standing on the shoulders of The Who Matt Smith T~ STAFF WRITER v Oasis, bless their hearts, want so badly to be The Beatles that you just have to feel for them. Barring Beatle status, they at least want to be the next Brit-pop wonder on par with The Kinks, The Who or The Rolling Stones. Several albums later, it is clear they will never quite get there. Nonetheless, Oasis is not a bad band. Although derivative to a fault, they are not as awful as, say Lenny Kravit/., They also supplied some of the 90's better music. Of course, 90's music being such a sorry mess overall, that's not much of a compliment. The band's main out- put is good though they. never approached the qual ity of their 60's British heroes or the later punk/new wave pioneers. The Beatles, The Kinks, The Clash and The Jam always ran circles around Oasis. Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the band's latest album, isn't likely to change that either If anything, Giants represents a step down from earlier Oasis e...
