Can We Just Discuss: The golden silence By Chad Marden One of the things I've been hearing around campus from RA's is that there were a lot of complaints about noise last semester. As a result, they are now being told to place stricter enforcement on noise laws and "quiet hours" in and around their respective buildings. As one of the more busy people among my circle, I am happy to see that the school is trying to make for a peaceful study and work environment. I only have one question for my fellow returning class; was the noise really that bad? I don't think I've heard one complaint from anyone. Bear in mind that I've been asking a lot of

Can We Just Discuss: Politically Incorrect By Chad Marden It's time to talk a little more seriously for a second, folks. I'm sure I mentioned it once here at the paper and multiple times among friends, but this topic seems to keep coming up around me recently. I've never been shy about saying my piece before and that's why I'm going to just come out and say it – I am deeply offended by euphemistic language and political correctness. From my perspective, politically correct language is just another form of intolerance. And this one is far more insidious because it comes disguised as tolerance.

CotC: Fist of the North Star
Cult of the Classic: Fist of the North Star (1986) By Chad Marden This is yet another movie like "Yojimbo" that can be filed in the I-Freaking-Love-Japan folder. For better or for worse, Japanese film is almost always a reliable source of story and imagery so far out that I can't help but love it. For example, let's look at the insanity that is the animated movie "Fist of the North Star" (Please note that, in the interest of simplicity, I will be using the voice actors and character names used in the English localization). The story takes place in an alternate future where the Cold War escalated to world-destroying levels. Only a few survi

CotC: Killer Tomatoes
Cult of the Classic: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978) By Chad Marden Coming off of two legends of b-grade cult classic cinema, "Zardoz" and "Killer Clowns from Outer Space", I felt compelled to close off this season with one last hurrah of cheesy movies. The greatest coincidence of "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" is that one of the biggest scares of this decade was the Spinach/ E Coli outbreak this year. 22 years after this movie – right idea; wrong section of the produce aisle. In this movie, the country is inexplicably invaded by super intelligent, murderous tomatoes. Mason Dixon (David Miller) is contracted by the government al

CotC: Zardoz
Cult of the Classic: Zardoz (1974) By Chad Marden 'Zardoz' is one of those Cult films where more than 90 percent of people have heard of it, but less than half of those folks have actually seen it. There are some very mixed reviews about this film floating around. Personally, I'm amazed that this even exists. It's by far one of the strangest things I've experienced in some time… and I've seen 'Forbidden Zone'. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. The false god Zardoz, controlled by thespian Arthur Frayn (Niall Buggy) controls the breeding of primitive "Brutals" to produce for his race of bored and undying "Eternals" who

Can We Just Discuss: High Stress Workout By Chad Marden As midterms pass us by and finals quickly approach, things are going to start getting more hectic. As important as getting your work done is, it is just as important to keep your mind and body sound and at ease to get the most out of your work. That said here are some things to keep in mind should things get a bit too heavy. Firstly, keep yourself organized.  There's not much more stressful than getting smacked in the face by a project you didn't see coming. Keep a schedule of due dates handy and try to get projects done early if possible to free up time later. Next, make time for

CotC: Krull
Cult of the Classic: Krull (1983) Chad Marden When I found this on my Netflix account, my reaction was that of "I remember this!" I first saw 'Krull' as a game at an arcade near my house. I remembered the game somewhat fondly and hoped the movie to be just as good or better. No such luck, my friends. "Krull" successfully shattered my childhood. The land of Krull is under siege by a race of alien creatures lead by a monster known simply as The Beast (voiced by Trevor Martin). In order to unite their kingdoms against The Beast, Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall) and Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony) are to be wed. However, The Beast's forces kidnap

CotC: Yojimbo
Cult of the Classic: Yojimbo (1961) Chad Marden My closest friends can tell you that I have a deep love for Japanese culture. As such, a lot classic and obscure Japanese films and anime find their way to me. Most of them have a noticeable western influence, but this foreign classic not only draws from American films but would go on to inspire them as well. A wandering ronin samurai, Sanjuro Kuwabatake (Toshirô Mifune), finds his way to a small town that has been split in two by a pair of rival gangster families. After hearing the extent of the damage caused from local innkeeper Gonji (Eijirô Tôno), Sanjuro devises a series o

CotC: The Refrigerator
Cult of the Classic: The Refrigerator (1991) Chad Marden Few things get a worse reputation in horror films than household appliances and power tools. With movies like 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and scenes like the zombie in a blender from 'Dead Alive', I'm surprised I'm not terrified of my dishwasher. What's worse is that, after a while, death by appliance just starts sounding silly. Take, for example, the case of 'The Refrigerator'. Steve Bateman (Dave Simonds) gets a new job in Brooklyn causing him to move into a new apartment with his wife Eileen (Julia McNeel), who is studying to be an actress. Little do they know that a strange curse l

Scum abounds everywhere
People PISS ME OFF! Yesterday night; 2am: I'm sound asleep in my room when I'm shocked awake by men yelling, loud pounding, and women screaming. I jump out of bed and looked out my window to find a man getting beaten and two girls crying in terror. I tried to get dressed and run down to stop it, but by the time I got down the hall of my building, the outside door was kicked in and the girls were inside still shaken. The three guys that they were with were in the bathroom looking over their injuries, but assured me that they where largely unharmed. I was assured by our residence director that the perp was was caught, But that doesn't make m

Movin' on
Well, this is it. I'll be back on campus this Wednesday. I've had some good memories over the summer... I got swept 50 yards down river during a fishing trip (secretly had fun, despite going under a few times). I had an over night barbecue with friends and had the best wake up call of my life (my friends hit surprisingly hard with pillows). I played Scrabble with people that were just as guilty of being Grammar Nazis as me. I got to watch a LOT of cheesy movies (all will inevitably be made into reviews). But mostly, I spent the summer waxing philosophic about life and the universe. I regret leaving my home again, but I can't deny how mu

PAIN!
So I threw my back out some time ago and that's why I haven't been on dA lately. It pisses me off for multiple reasons. Firstly, I had just recovered from some severe allergies that could have been easily mistaken for a sinus infection. Secondly, I'm in to much pain to walk which means missing the ACS Relay for Life this year. Finally, I've been stuck in the house doing diddly-squat until I can move competently again. Thank god for Netflix and cheesy b-movies; I might go insane otherwise. I'm working (or rather will be working after I recover) on some projects for school. I need to gather together some music to make a playlist so I can use i
