Kinesiology expansion on schedule

After a mild and productive winter, the 2,500 square metre Kinesiology Complex expansion project is still going full speed ahead. “The development is coming along famously, we’re actually ahead of schedule,” said John Paulsen, Director of Operations at the Faculty of Kinesiology. “We’ve been incredibly fortunate, because we took a risk building during the winter,… Continue reading Kinesiology expansion on schedule

Dinos coaches relocated

The University of Calgary Dinos’ coaches are in the process of moving their offices on the second floor of Kinesiology B to older offices in Kinesiology A, which was the former home of Career Services.

Maddin to make world sadder

Ignoring the fact that it’s a contradiction in terms, assume there is a book of unwritten rules. Under the arts and literature section, there would be an entry explaining the difference between reality on a stage and reality in film. On stage, grand gestures and evocative set designs create an exaggerated world, necessary to keep… Continue reading Maddin to make world sadder

Brave film out of the closet

Every filthy thought you’ve ever had is written plainly on your forehead, synopsised obscenity. You’re a good person. You’ve made mistakes, but we all… Continue reading Better than a rimjob

If that’s true, then Live and in Quonset is a frighteningly cliched disc full of well-tread boogey blues and mournful country songs… Continue reading Dave Lang

Various Artists

I first came across One Take around late February or early March. After a few listens I wrote an uninspired, if not terrible, review of the disc and due to its complete lack of quality, it never saw the light of day. I was not surprised. The album was quickly whisked into my pile of… Continue reading Various Artists
