Cancer is cancer

In the UC, there have been students selling t-shirts for breast cancer awareness. It makes sense, because this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Do you want to bet we’ll be seeing more shirts being sold even after this month is over? Now, before I get chased out of here with torches and pitchforks, ...

'Someone made a Facebook page'

As I walk on campus, I’ll see signs and maybe even some sidewalk chalk telling me about upcoming events on campus.   As an advertising and public relations major that’s a solid way to get the word out to students. It may not be the best way but still effective. But for the other organizations that adve...

Recently, there was an incident on campus where solicitors harassed a young lady while trying to sell magazines. The young woman was an Asian female. The solicitor followed her around, and violated her personal space. His excuse was, “Sorry, I have yellow fever.” Read More »...

A disturbing Jack-ass

I bet a lot of you did the same thing I did this weekend. I went to see Jackass 3-D. Let me just start out by saying that this is not a review. I’ll leave a movie review of penis pingpong and drinking the butt sweat of a fat man to someone more capable. This is more of a rant. I would be lying if I ...

To the ‘politically enthusiastic,’ lay off

Every other year, we go through a circus commonly known as voting. Absentee voting, trying to go to the home poles or finding where the nearest one is, are some of the headaches that come with voting. But these are still less annoying than the people who go around campus, hounding us to find out if we...

Honesty equals rarity

Sometimes, as I watch the news and the world around me, I lose a little more faith in humanity.   There are stories everywhere that make me shake my head at how dishonest people can be.  Fortunately, my faith was restored and I learned a valuable lesson after an incident on campus. I lost my deb...

Kids? No thanks…

I want to begin by saying this: I hold those who are parents, and I mean good parents, not those who let their kids go ape shit wild, in the highest regard. You have a lot of energy and patience. I, on the other hand, have neither. And that is why children are not in my future. Plus, I basically raised my...

Someone pass the remote

Once upon a time, cable was just something they dumped old “M*A*S*H” reruns on, or the occasional made for TV movie. The Networks never gave them a second thought. That is, until three letters came along that changed the TV industry forever: HBO. While HBO started as a small channel that played movi...

Vampires: let the right ones in

Justin Law
October 6, 2010
Filed under Opinion

I read an article Thursday about vampires and how they “suck the life out of entertainment.” I could see where this would be true in some cases. “The Twilight Saga” is a perfect example of this. Most of the movies that Hollywood has made, based on various novels or their own “unique” ideas, ar...
