Invisible Children: The Resue

- Beth Burge

“Call us what you will, just don’t forget to call us daring. Talk is
cheap, and we're not ones to sleep through a revolution.” ~Invisible
Children Rescue Riders

Last night a benefit concert was put on for Invisible Children’s: The
Rescue in the upper union. The Rescue is an event held all across the
world to raise awareness about the child soldiers in Uganda. The
concert went very well. Those who played were Wind and Sail, Laura
Stephens, Joe Letchworth, Anna Joy Griesbach, Rachel Bowden, and Steph
Plant. Each brought a different feeling with them and was greatly
enjoyed by all who were in earshot. The money earned from the concert
goes directly to Invisible Children, specifically The Rescue mission.
Since September 2008, the LRA rebel army has murdered over 1,170
civilians without cause, and abducted around 500 children to add to
their army. This puts the numbers of children being forced to be a
part of the LRA to nearly to the 4,000 mark. Each year Invisible
Children holds an event where thousands of people gather to raise
awareness about the neglected Northern Uganda. One year, thousands
night commuted. Another year they displaced themselves. This year we
will be abducting ourselves for the sake of those who have been
abducted by Joseph Kony and the rebel army in Northern Uganda. Rescue
events will be happening all across the world in one hundred different
St. Louis, Missouri’s Rescue Event will happen this Saturday, April
25th beginning at the Edwards Jones Dome at 3 pm. Once everyone
gathers, the group of “abductees” will walk from the Dome to the St.
Louis Arch. This is about a half a mile. After arriving at the Arch,
those abducted will camp out until two different groups of people
“rescue” them.
As of now, there are more than 800 people signed up to participate in
the St. Louis Rescue. The group must be rescued by both the media and
different moguls in the areas. The media is there to raise awareness
to the majority of Americans who have no idea of the immense problem
in Uganda happening right now. The moguls are required to bring about
change on a larger scale with our celebrities and our governments
around the world. Many different radio stations have been notified
about the Rescue. Albert Pujols, Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill,
Senator Bond, and several congressmen have been contacted already in
hopes they will be willing to participate and be a support the effort
to do something about the rebel army and the injustice happening every
day to thousands of innocent children.
A group of students plan to leave Saturday, April 25th around 1:30 pm
from Ganton Circle to carpool to St. Louis for the event. Each will be
carrying just what is needed to make it until they are rescued. This
can include a backpack with warmer clothes from the night, food to
last a whole day, paper in order to write letters to those in power,
three photographs of you and your friends/family (to leave at the
abduction site and to send to the leaders you’re writing to), sleeping
bag, and $5. The group will return once rescued either Saturday night
or Sunday. If you would like any more information please contact Beth
Bounds or Jared Pitts.

If I Stay - Book Review

- Caitlin Tadlock
The new young adult novel by Gayle Foreman (Sisters in Sanity) hit shelves this month with much anticipation. The book centers on a teenage girl that is comatose after a tragic car accident that took her family’s lives. Even before the book was released to the public, it was picked up by Summit Entertainment for a 2011 feature film release date with Catherine Hardwicke set to direct.

The 196 page turner is set in the Portland, Oregon suburbs. I returned from a week and a half Spring break visit from Portland and enjoyed the book’s references to Mt. Hood, Hawthorne Street, the downtown sites and the Portland hipster scene, since I just recently discovered those places myself a little over a month ago.

Mia has an outer body experience while she is in a coma in a Portland hospital. Through out her time in intensive care, Mia follows around her comatose body as nurses and doctors perform surgery on her and check her vitals. She also follows around her grandparents, best friend, and boyfriend through the hospital and reminisces about the time spent with them in her life. The book jumps back and forth from present time to past events that make you feel connected with her family and have more sympathy for Mia. You learn that her parents were punk rockers and that Mia was the odd one out as she was a budding cellist with a passion for classical music and a pending acceptance at Julliard.

The book has its silly parts in it, being a young adult fiction and all. In one chapter, a famous rock star from the band Bikini stops by the hospital to distract the nurses as Mia’s indie-cool boyfriend Adam tries to rush the ICU with his band mates and Mia’s best friend to visit her.

All of the past stories Mia shares with us have a hand in making the hardest decision of her life. Mia’s character is likable and somewhat relatable, in the beginning her only common concern was choosing college or her boyfriend and how to deal with relationship and family matters. I read the book in one sitting, not because it was a highly addictive read but because it was just shy of 200 pages. Overall the book is nicely written as Mia struggles between deciding if it would be better to live or to die. If I Stay is a moving and thought-provoking book that attracts an audience of both adults and teenagers.

Best of Both Worlds? Hannah Montana Movie Review

- Shequita Weaver

I’m not going to lie. I’m not even ashamed. When I found out that a Hannah Montana movie was making its way to a theater near me, I was excited. Yes, I’m a 21 year old college senior. However, being able to revert back to my 13-year-old, teenybopper self gives me “the best of both worlds.” I saw the movie the day after it came out. My mom offered to pay, and immediately I asked my 13-year-old sister if she wanted to go. Unfortunately, she’s at the age of being “above” Hannah Montana. So I simply called my 12 year-old cousin who is not yet too cool for Hannah Montana. A year can make a big difference, I suppose. Whatever the case may be, we were off to see the movie event of the year!

I’ll admit that I felt a little awkward singing along to the songs in the movie with a 12-year-old to my left and a 3 year-old to my right. However, as time went on I was able to push my insecurities aside and discuss my reasons for loving Jackson as opposed to Oliver with the cute little girl who had no teeth.

The movie in itself was adorable, entertaining, and charming (if you are willing to watch it from the eyes of a teenybopper girl. Otherwise, you probably wouldn’t enjoy it much. In this film version of Hannah Montana, it seems that Miley Stewart is letting her alter-ego lifestyle get out of hand. In short, she’s beginning to think that her name is really Hannah Montana and has become too big for her britches. After getting into a fight with Tyra Banks over a pair of shoes (although, who wouldn’t want to throw a shoe at her head?), Miley’s father decides to intervene and send her back down to her roots—away from Hollywood and home to Tennessee where she grew up.

Being in Tennessee makes Miley realize that she has forgotten who she was. After telling a certain boy (there’s always a love-interest) that she saved Hannah Montana’s life while surfing, she gets herself into a predicament that forces her to introduce Hannah to her hometown in Tennessee—while keeping her secret safe. After cute antics throughout the movie, and a big web of lies, Miley is forced to make a decision. Does she stop being Hannah, or does she return to Tennessee as Miley Stewart, the simple farm girl?

Hannah Montana the movie provides its young viewers with a sense of fun and a lesson in staying true to oneself. While some may not enjoy the sugary sweet, bubblegum genre, I saw it as a refreshing break from my life as a 21-year-old college senior.

His weird blend of shyness and exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university’s social elite, Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunel and soon the three become the most ultra-modern group in Madrid.

You Can't Take It With You: Personal Reflection

- Tim Burge
Random, hilarious, stellar, fast-paced, wild, crazy, and fun all describe Greenville College’s rendition of You Can’t Take It with You. This crazy comedy had the audience rolling with laughter as a hysterical chain of events leads up to the climax that winds down with a tone of seriousness. Alice, a central person to the play, finds herself in quite a predicament when her fiancé’s parents come for dinner at her house a day early. With her random, quirky family, Alice soon realizes that the two families are worlds of different. As the seriousness of the issue sweeps in, the audience finds themselves at the heart of the play.
When the comedy turns sharply from laughter to seriousness, I felt as if the flow of the play was disrupted, and I was not a fan of the complete 180 degree turn. I really loved the funny parts, and some of the actors did phenomenal, but the seriousness seemed to come out of nowhere. As I mentioned, there were a few of the actors that stood out in my mind. Alex Gohde, who played the Russian ballet instructor, performed magnificently. His over exaggeration of facial expressions and embellishments of body movements made my sides hurt from laughing.
Also, Essie did an outstanding job on her part. At first, her horrible ballet movements irritated me, but as I realized, she was horrible! One of my favorite parts was when two other characters were dialoguing and Essie was lying on the couch with her head hanging off the front wiggling her toes in midair above her. Also worth mentioning was Lindsey, who played Alice’s mom. She became her character and never once faltered from it, and in the process, unleashing laughs upon laughs from the audience.
Overall, the play was wonderful. It had its ups and downs, but most performances usually do. I really enjoyed the actors and their abilities. I wish that I could have gone one more night, just to see it again.

Fun. & Manchester Orchestra Nashville Review

- Kara Wenthe

Tuesday, April 21st, in Nashville, TN, Manchester Orchestra’s CD Release/ Tour Kickoff Show at Exit/In started out with pop-rock Winston Audio. It’s nothing too wonderful, like something I would enjoy in the heat of the Cornerstone Festival, but never buy their CD or even bother to pirate their music from the internet –a one night stand sort of enjoyment without the enduring commitment and title of “fan.”

Then came the artsy sounds of The Audrye Sessions, whose female bass player (how’s that for feminism?) hand sews and crafts their merch while on the road. Her produce included scarves and purses embroidered with owls constructed out of recycled fabrics. She really did inspire me and spark my interest with her DIY promotion. Their set was nothing too wonderful, minus the last song in which the vocalist experimented with proximity to the mic, creating a DIY vocal effect. Something the sound guys could have easily altered with the twist of a knob, I assume. That should have been my first cue.

The shoddy sound crew slightly sucked the fun out of Fun’s performance. Kurt the Flirt, my companion at this artistic performance, whose knowledge in the art of sound far exceeds my own, winced and rubbed his ears a few times; he credited the painful expressions to the work of the sound crew. Despite technical difficulties, after an extra twenty unnecessary minutes of setup Fun front man, Nate Reuss, counted off into Benson Hedges, a first Fun original. Their first record should be released in a few months, some of which they played, revealing an influence of Freddie Mercury meets the Format. Making fun of their roots, the band covered two Format songs, “The First Hit Single” and “Snails” to keep the party going. A Christopher Walken look-alike in the crowd had his hips groovin’ to the beats, a good sign I’m sure. GC’s own Jonathan Goldstein is the man behind the beats for Fun on this tour (see Tadlock’s article). Check them out in Covington, Kentucky, or Kansas City, Missouri May 7th or 11th in consecutive shows, hope for better quality sound, and see myspace for details, yeah? (

Headlining band, Manchester Orchestra, just released a new album Tuesday, April 21st. I was pretty pumped with the new release; their presence was phenomenal—at least the sound crew experienced redemption during this set. Manchester played all the new and old album favorites and hits, including “I’ve Got Friends,” “Shake It Out,” “I Can Barely Breathe,” and an acoustic version of “The Only One.” Front man Andy Hull covered a WILCO song about Bob Dylan’s beard and made a pop culture reference to fml in the form of song. And his wit prevailed as he added a circumstantial fourth verse just before the slow skin peeling portion of “Shake It Out.” It went a little something like: “If you want to mosh / don’t push little girls / because it’s rude.” Of course, I got clocked by an arm-flailing enthusiast immediately before this heartfelt addition.

Shut-up & Let Me Go to The Ting Tings Show!

- Melissa Taylor

(The Ting Tings @ The Pageant on The Delmar Loop)

Originally scheduled to play in the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, the Ting Tings instead performed at the Pageant on Friday, April 3rd due to over selling tickets. When I say performed, I mean exactly that. This funky duo, which hails from Greater Manchester, England, definitely got the crowd cutting a few rugs, bodies moving, beats dropping. The atmosphere gave off the impression of a rave, with almost every girl mimicking guitarist/vocalist Katie White’s tasteful attire.
Tasteful, I regret to say, may not be the word most would choose to describe the opening act. Hot Tub, a female trio from Oakland, California, graced the stage in ripped up leggings and t-shirts—well, mostly pieces of material connected in pivotal regions. However, even some of the precious little clothing they managed to don didn’t last very long. Shirts came off, and things got, might I say, uncomfortable. Their choice of dance was even questionable, as every move involved explicitly sexual motions. Even worse, they didn’t stay on the stage very long. You can guess what that meant for those in the crowd. That’s a memory I would not like to revisit anytime soon or ever preferably.
On the positive side, everyone there most likely was seeking a night of dancing, and Hot Tub, I must say, did not disappoint in that arena. Their rhymes were flowing, and the floor was far from stagnant. However, I, like most others I suspect, was there for the Ting Tings.
They played all 10 tracks off of their first and only album, We Started Nothing. This set included their well-known singles, “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go.” The Pageant was crowded, but the space definitely facilitated the concert more efficiently than Blueberry Hill could have. Actually, this isn’t the first time The Ting Tings have partied in St. Louis. They were here last July, but as Katie White mentioned during the show, she appreciated the air-conditioning and spacious venue. “Thank God for air-conditioning; now let’s play some tunes.” Jules and Katie lived up to their promise of satisfying tunes as they partied and pleased the diverse audience from teenagers to the “mature.” Despite the opening act that left most confused, overall, it was worth the $17.50 to groove with the Ting Tings and dance to their sweet, funky-fresh beats.

Adventureland, Not Another Superbad

- Dav Timm

Once when I was in high school, I remember seeing a kid wearing a pro-abstinence t-shirt that read, “VIRGINITY ROCKS!” At the time I didn’t think much of it, but later I realized how absurd the shirt was. Since when does virginity rock? I don’t think virginity is something most people enjoy – I, for one am looking forward to the best part about the V-card: losing it.
This is one reason I liked Adventureland, a charming coming-of-age comedy that follows the summer after college in 1987 for James Brennan (played by Jesse Eisenberg). When his girlfriend dumps him because he’s a virgin, he realizes he needs to get him some. He’s anticipating a trip to Europe before he goes to grad school at Columbia, but then his dad gets demoted and both plans fall through. He’s forced to get a summer job, which he lands at a dilapidated amusement park.

At Adventureland we’re introduced to a plethora of quirky characters who drive the plot, such as nerdy Joel (Martin Starr aka Bill from Freaks & Geeks), Connell (Ryan Reynolds) who claims to have jammed with Lou Reed once, and cute and lovable Em (Kristen Stewart), who quickly becomes the object of James’ attention. By far the funniest and weirdest duo in the film is the married couple that runs Adventureland, Bobby (Bill Hader) and Paulette (Kristen Wiig). The characters provide some of the movie’s greatest appeal. Plus, there’s plenty of slapstick and puking-related humor to make Adventureland a thoroughly comical film.

The movie is a sort of autobiography for writer-director Greg Mottola (Superbad) who spent a summer in similar fashion to Adventureland’s main character. So he knew just how to make Adventureland nostalgic. At the same time it’s accompanied by a classic 80s soundtrack with such artists as Bowie, the Cure, and the Replacements, plus an original score written by Yo La Tengo. Like Superbad, the movie’s tone is set by the soundtrack, but Adventureland tends toward melancholy rather than raunchiness. If you’re expecting Superbad II, you probably won’t be satisfied. Nonetheless, Adventureland is lighthearted and personal and I’m betting you won’t be disappointed if you can put up with the dirty jokes, drug use and sexuality that give it its R-rating. It’s a funny and bittersweet retro comedy, reflective of the romance and naïveté of growing up. If I could narrow it down to three words, I’d simply conclude: well worth seeing.

Spring Concerts Underway

- Lindsay Meece

If you’re looking for things to do and just can’t bear to be in Greenville for another weekend, lots of bands have started their spring tours and are playing in the area. Many concerts are in St. Louis, as well as Peoria, Springfield, Champaign, or Chicago, if you’re looking for more of a drive. If you’re into music as much as I am, you should jump on this opportunity to see your favorite band in concert. This past week I went to The All-American Rejects concert in St. Louis and to a Copeland concert in Urbana.

The All-American Rejects packed the house at The Pageant in St. Louis on Thursday, April 9, 2009. It was definitely worth it to wait to go home until Friday for Easter break. I’ve seen these guys in concert before and they really know how to put on a show. The All-American Rejects made sure to cover many songs from their latest album, When the World Comes Down, which was released on December 16, 2008. They also covered their hits from their self-titled album and Move Along, singing the fan favorites “Swing Swing,” “Dirty Little Secret,” and “Move Along.” The opening acts were Vedera, Ace Enders, and Shiny Toy Guns who all were successful in keeping the crowd’s attention.

Copeland performed at The Canopy Club right off the University of Illinois campus in Urbana this past Monday night, April 13. It was my first time seeing them and in light of my close proximity to the band (about two people away) and as strong as Aaron Marsh’s voice was, it was an amazing performance. Copeland has a distinct sound that is relaxing and peaceful, but they know how to rock when they’re performing live. They covered songs from their latest album, You Are My Sunshine, released on October 14, 2008. I love the new stuff but I’m also a big fan of their older material and luckily they played some of their older songs as well, including “Pin Your Wings” and my favorite, “You Have My Attention.” Brooke Waggoner, Paper Route, and This Providence opened for Copeland and each had a different style that made the overall concert experience worthwhile.

If you missed out on these two amazing concerts don’t worry! There are many more to come. Mae is said to be playing in St. Louis on May 19, 2009, and that would be a great way to end the school year. Of course, Agape, Cornerstone, and Ignite Chicago are always great experiences. Keep an eye out for your favorite band to come this way because many bands have a spring tour.

You Can't Take It With You - Factory Theatre Comedy

The Greenville College Factory Theatre will showcase the wacky but warmhearted Sycamore family in the production of Moss Hart and George Kaufman’s hit comedy YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU, scheduled for April 15-18 at 7:30 p.m.

The action occurs in the home of the eccentric Sycamores. Among exploding fireworks, spontaneous reading of plays and exuberant xylophone music, they all live in happy, if not relatively noisy madness. Alice Sycamore (Ali Richert) loves Tony Kirby (Nathan Ondracek), the vice president of his father’s company. The Sycamore’s quirky lifestyle comes under scrutiny and suspicion when Tony’s parents (Andrew Richards and Liz Pontious) pay an unexpected visit to Alice’s home. In the hilarious ensuing moments, the entire household faces fast-paced pandemonium, complete with pickled pig’s feet, unexpected wrestling moves, detonating fireworks, and house arrest. When the smoke clears, only the wise counsel of Grandpa (Dan Jensen) coupled with the blintz-making prowess of an ex-grand duchess (Chelsea Tredor) can save the day.

Additional cast members of this zany, heartwarming comedy include Lindsey Schuberth, James Turner, Gemma Heilmer, Tyler Simmons, Alex Gohde, Diana Buchanan, Daniel Turner, Amanda Brinkman, Keith Davis, Rebecca Washburn, Taylor Griggs, Elisabeth Ward, and William Ahern. Often described as the funniest comedy ever written, YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU promises to provide an evening of fun for the whole family.

Cool Spotting Takes Stalking to a New Level

- Caitlin Tadlock

(Nikki Reed spotted wearing Wayfarer II 2143 Raybans, Nike Dunk High Premium Rainbows released January 09')

The other day I stumbled upon ( a website that is devoted to give you details on how to dress like a celebrity, whether it’s a paparazzi shot of them walking through an airport, a magazine spread or a screen shot of a movie scene. I spent some time on the user-generated website, and was surprised of how these folks were committed to give you each star’s intricate look.

For example, your favorite movie last summer was Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, you love Kat Dennings lipstick in the movie, and you want it yourself. First, you go to her page on Cool Spotters and at the top it gives a short biography “Kat Dennings, born Katherine Litwack; June 13, 1986…is an American actress”, alright good to know that she’s American. Under the entertainment section you can either go to her movie Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist or to the Adventureland premiere where it shows her hanging out with Kristen Wiig and Kristen Stewart on the red carpet. I believe my best option is to go to the Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist page and click a picture of her character, Norah. I hover my mouse over her face and voila, a box pops up over her lips telling me it’s “Sheer Magic” lips stain by Lorac! Alright, now I need to go order that from Amazon. is able to depict a movie shot by shot and give you the lowdown, from the car they drove to the bedspread used and where to buy it. After viewing a picture of Lindsay Lohan I now know where I can purchase Red Bull, Camel Number 9’s and a Sharpie pen. Probably all of these can be bought at a gas station but it is best to know where Lindsay buys them, so I click the link for the Sharpie pen and get an online address to where I can make my purchase.
Is this taking hero worship to an extreme? Yes. in a way is like a shopping/celebrity hybrid of Twitter and Facebook. You can create yourself a profile, follow certain celebrities or movies and get updates on where they are going and what they are wearing. You can stop watching the Style channel and unsubscribe from fashion magazines because is attempting to bring all celebrity style into one slick click on its website.

Right now, I’m on my final step to buy a pair of Ray Ban 2143 Wayfarer II shades I just saw Scarlett Johansson wear in a TMZ video from Monday night. I followed them for only $99.00!
