Do you think drinking and drug use are a major prob- lem on college campuses? Cecilia Bradley Sophomore English "Wesleyan is a different campus from most. I don't think drinking and drug use are a big problem here. On campuses where you have bigger Greek life, there are bigger problems." Stephanie Pollard Sophomore ' Mass Communication "I don't think it's too bad, especially here." Shea Cannon Sophomore Art "It just depends on your setting. Most stu- dents are social drinkers if they drink at all. It's getting to be a problem. There are isolated groups."

In The Spotlight Music Cover Sonus, Sort Of Not many people would deny thai Led Zeppelin was one of the greatest rock hands of all time. Because of that not, many bands cover their songs. Now someone has. Well kind of. The Black Crowes have teamed up with for- mer Zeppelin Jiinmy Page The Dave Matthews Band guitarist Jimmy Page and have been touring and released a live CI). If there is one group that can cover Zeppelin, it's The Crowes. The songs are great, especially their version of "What Is And What Should Never lie." This might hopefully lead to a continu- ing relationship between the two. Maybe It Won't Sell Out This Time Dave Matthews Band will release another album as yet' unti- tled this summer, continuing the trend of at least one new album of some sort each year. .

LIBRARY Tex A s The students' voice since 1917 March 29, 2(XK) Fort Worth, Texas Vbl. 83, No. 9 News Briefs ♦"♦DISCLAIMER*** The following brief is not part of the April Fool's issue. Storms Bear Down on Wesleyan Storms associated with an east- bound tornado that touched down in downtown Fort Worth moved across Wesleyan March 28. Many students fled dorms and other buildings, congregating in the basement of the Eunice and James L. West Library, as the KXAS news played on a small radio. Present university employees made a closet shelter available to students who felt safer inside a closed space. Tia Russell, mass communica- tion major said she felt safe in the shelter. Students lined the hallways, some ducking into doorways and classrooms, while some took shel- ter in the computer labs as the storms passed over. Sophomore mass communica- tion Caesar Villalpando said he was displeased that so many students were out in the hallway, where fly- ing debris and strong winds could endanger t...

te Rummer Mtfrcr K Student takes staff position Jon McKenzie Dksan Faulkner KING OF THE RODEO . In a move some students have called "shocking," a recent Wes- leyan graduate has accepted a staff position with the university. Jon McKenzie, 21, graduated in the fall 1999 semes- ter. He planned to hike the Appalachian Trail, amass- ing •- pho- lographs for his portfolio" McKen- zie hoped to use this portfolio to obtain a position taking pictures for a nature magazine. However, McKenzie, fright- ened by the prospect of looking for a job with only the aforementioned portfolio and a mass communica- tion degree from Wesleyan, decided to take the low road and accepted an offer from the university's freshman admissions office. "All the adventure and excite- ment sounded nice last summer, when I planned it; but when 1 thought about actually following through with my plan...to tell you the truth, I was just scared," McKenzie said. McKenzie plans to go through the university's MBA program. He sa...

■: b:;.t Kevin Spacey by Oliver Klozov The Oscars The Oscars have come and gone and I noticed a few strange things from the usual mainstream society awards system. What is all the fuss about this American Beauty movie? Come on, a movie is a movie. It can't be that good. I haven't seen it yet, but it can't be all that good. I mean it's got that weird guy from Seven and The Usual Suspects. He's always being so serious; he is never happy or lighthearted. And that other woman who was in it, Annette Benning. She was too lazy to come up on stage and everyone was acting like she was so precious and fragile. Then there was the tribute to Warren Beatty. Benning acted like she was married to him or some- thing like that. Now if you want my opinion, and you're going to get it, of the best movie of the year, it has to be Storm Catcher with Dolph Lundgren. He's man-tastic. The plot was really Annette Benning excellent and there was all these explosions and action. The special effects were really...

Junior Josh Vickrey and fresh- man James Daugherty were introduced in the lineup in number five and six positions.

0 ■ Britney Spears In the Spotlights By Ben Parker When (>ood Songs are Sung by Bad People What really gets me is when 1 hear some song done by some artist you just know is going to be selling track on the corner of Hollywood and Vine in a couple of years. Then it turns out that the lyrics were pretty decent, but the music and the singer just sucked. A case in point: everyone knows the Britney Spears song, "Baby One More Time." Well, at least you've heard it once or twice or watched the video to see her overly enormous bosom. Anyway, you know the song and it is pretty much terrible. I thought that, too. Then the other night I was listening to the "Adventure Club" on The Edge and of all things, I heard that song. But it wasn't the same. Some band from Scotland called Travis did a cover of the song and put it on the B-side on its lat- est single. 1 wouldn't have recognized it if the radio host hadn't pointed out that it was the same song. It sounded completely different. The band u...

Oasis: A British perspective David Slater When reading the recent Rambler music review entitled "Oasis: stand- ing on the shoulders of The Who," i was saddened to hear that the writer had felt the need to all but tear to shreds the new album by Britain's biggest band, Oasis. The band's lat- est musical effort. Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, has not set the. music critics' . pulses rac- —————— ing. In many aspects, however, the album has been a personal triumph for Oasis. In the last decade there has been somewhat of a Brit-Pop revolution across in the United Kingdom. The ,(X)s had been ridiculed by many from the music world for its so-called lack of originality. This, howev- er, could hardly be further from the truth. In the '50s there was the rock and roll revolution. The '60s was full of pop and rock and the '70s had the beginning of punk. In the '80s you had the electronic phase, along with the automatic beat-boxes. The difference with the '90s was that it produced some of ...
