I often ask myself where I'll be in five years. And, every time, I realize the answer is simple: In my parents' basement sending inappropriate and sexually suggestive e-mails to companies, hoping that they'll send me free stuff for entertaining their customer service employee. My most recent misadventure with a company came after I thought up a brilliant, albeit highly inappropriate idea for Penn Tennis. My first e-mail to them looked something exactly like this:
A 21-year old Madison woman was robbed on her walk home early Wednesday morning around 12:35 a.m.
UW Transportation Services officials highlighted lost parking permit and meter revenue during its Tuesday meeting which addressed its $1 million budget deficit.
I'm naturally competitive by nature (though I could totally be less competitive than anybody! Anybody!) and this weekly column has not done much to diminish that competitive spirit within me. Week in and week out, I have to stare in defeat as I view The Daily Cardinal website's ""Most Read"" tab and see the Friday Sex Column (written expertly by Erica Andrist) pummeling my unfunny Thursday column into the ground. What have I done wrong? Well, who am I kidding. It's not me. It's you. Yeah, you. Readers like you who love the explosions, the car chases and, oh yes, the sex. That sexy sex. Yes, you're salivating right now at just the mention of the word. If I'm ever going to take down the ""Most Read"" crown, it's going to be through sex, and lots of it.
The Associated Students of Madison, UW's student government, has its elections online next week, April 12-14. On the ballot: most Student Council seats; spots on the Student Services Finance Committee, which allocates over $38 million in student segregated fees annually; and four referendum measures, including a plan to renovate the decrepit Natatorium.
If there's one thing I can't stand in this world, it's the completely misleading ""deals"" and ""Savings!"" from all sorts of companies and organizations hoping to dupe us all into literally buying into their scams. It seems like every amazing offer these days has some sort of catch, twist or horrific money-ejaculating pitfall attached that sours the deal in the end. Luckily, my hilarious, prize-winning column* this week will not disappoint. I'm bound and determined to point out all the tips and tricks to help college students catch when companies aren't being completely honest and up front with you.**
Today marks the beginning of an exciting time in the sporting world. It's a time of Sweet Sixteen matchups, ruined brackets and round-the-clock score checking to see how your picks performed. No, silly, I'm not talking about the NCAA Basketball Tournament. I'm talking about the 2010 Madison Notables Fight to the Death Tournament! Featuring 16 of Madison's most well-known figures, each will battle in various Madison locales until there is one bloodied, battered champion left. I've included my bracket and analysis below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
I have been asked to put together a spring break safety column as we (well, you, since I will be plunked in Madison the whole time) depart for warm, relaxing locales. With a little help from Colleen Jameson at the ""No, Not You"" blog, I have assembled this list of spring break sexual assault prevention tips—guaranteed to work!
A 15-year-old Madison girl was allegedly enticed in a possible attempted kidnapping by a Madison man Thursday afternoon.
With so many unsuccessful book-to-movie adaptations and well-known directors occasionally missing the mark, it can be difficult to wade through the messes Hollywood continues to spew out. But this does make the reasonbly successful attempts, such as Roman Polanski's new film ""The Ghost Writer,"" that much more refreshing.
There was a time in my life when I genuinely despised Apple. Sure, my reasons weren't fantastic for hating them—almost every person walks around with those idiotic earbuds, they have a smug Justin Long in their annoying commercials and iTunes now makes me feel guilty for downloading music illegally—but they were reasons nonetheless. Now, however, I just think they are brilliant. Apple has proven it can literally sell anything as long as they slap a little apple on it. Their newest creation of either sheer genius or dark humor, the iPad, is even greater proof. Apple has become so cocky that they've chosen the worst name they could think of for their latest monstrosity. Like most others, when I first heard the name, I thought the iPad was something females stuck between their legs, not a tablet computer. However, I've learned that the iPad is only the beginning of Apple's campaign to see just how ridiculous they can be and still sell products. Just get a load of some of these new products Apple plans to release in 2010:
You would be hard pressed to find a better week for sports fans than this one.
The Assembly Committee on Transportation held a public hearing Thursday to discuss Wisconsin transportation planning and possible rail and bus services.
It seems like every year around February or March people make the claim that it's the worst time of year. I've heard everything: burnout from school, the not-quite-winter-but-not-quite-spring weather, winter sports winding down, and even that they just hate Valentine's Day with a fiery passion. I, however, love this time of year for one simple reason: shitty movies. Yes, this time of year is perfect for studios to pump out their corny formula comedies or awful book adaptations for audiences who don't know any better. I'm a bit of a film buff myself, and a little research produced some quite surprising news. It appears that UW-Madison itself has been an inspiration for many of these subpar films that come out this time of year. I included titles and summaries from nine of the best ones below:
Madison movie theaters are being bum-rushed by recent releases from filmmakers commonly considered to be auteurs—directors whose distinctive artistic personalities are inscribed all over their respective oeuvres. Werner Herzog's ""Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,"" Michael Haneke's ""The White Ribbon,"" Martin Scorsese's ""Shutter Island,"" Roman Polanski's ""The Ghost Writer,"" John Woo's ""Red Cliff"" and Noah Baumbach's ""Greenberg"" will all enjoy runs on local screens this month. But before we can say whether these aforementioned movies are truly ""by"" their directors, it'd be worthwhile to take a look at the history of the auteur theory.
