- David Usher "selfishly" enjoys touring
He has been the lead singer of one of the foremost bands in Canadian rock for a decade, but heading out on a cross-Canada tour still has him extremely excited.
- Econoline Crush: Invading a Town Near You
Canadian band Econoline Crush are infiltrating the country to spread their
music to eager ears, who have patiently awaited their new albumıs arrival
early this year. They have been around in the North American music scene, touring for the past four years. Brand New History was the first album released after 1997ıs The Devil You Know. Not only has the music changed, but the band members and the bandıs image have changed as well.
- Propagandhi still trying to bring 80s politics into 90s music
Angry bands are a dime a dozen these days; bands with political agendas are not. Finding an angry band with a meaningful political message is like finding ten bucks in the pocket of a jacket you havenıt worn since last spring. In the case of Winnipeg-based anarchist punks Propagandhi, that is more like finding a diamond mine in your backyard. Their latest record, Todayıs Empires, Tomorrow Ashes, their third release for San Franciscoıs Fat Wreck Chords label, is also being released in Canada on their own label, G7 Welcoming Committee Records. The songs are faster, angrier, and more aggressive than anything the band has released before.
- The second slice is not always tastier
Yes folks! American Pie 2 is finally at a theatre near you (Actually itıs been there long enough for me to be the only one watching the Sunday afternoon screening)!
- Mena Suvari steals show in The Musketeer
From the current marketing trend of "making medieval times really cool" comes another retelling of the classic Alexandre Dumas story, The Three Musketeers. A Knight's Tale had its obvious injection of 70s style clothes and music. The modern twist that The Musketeer delivers can be summed up in three words: lots of spinning.
- O proves to have long shelf life
O, a modern day re-telling of William Shakespeare's tale of envy and jealousy, did as much as was expected to live up to its expectations. With a cast of Hollywood's newest wave of young, beautiful actors, O does its best to twist Shakespeareıs classic tale, Othello, into a modern day, believable story. In fact, with its tragic ending and excessive use of gun play, the film was originally filmed in March 1999 but not released to August due to the Columbine shootings. Its distributors, Disney-Miramax also refused to back it after the many school shootings that plagued the United States around this period. Lion's Gate Film picked it up and the film was released in August 2001.
- Agriculture Club kick up their boots
"You won't get any yearning, and you won't get any sensitive poetry. There's enough poets busking for my change in liquor store parking lots," says The Rubber Duck, Truck Drivin' Farm Boy. His band, Agriculture Club, will be at the Exchange tonight. "We'll be up there screaming our guts out about drinking, broken hearts, and lots of truck drivin' music," he elaborates. "It'll be halfway between AC/DC and Johnny Cash."
- Come for the music; stay for the sin
A little bit of sin might be just the thing that could spruce up an otherwise boring Wednesday Regina night.
- Rams butting way to top
It would appear the University of Regina Rams football club is picking up where they left off last December.
- Eyes on Sports: Football sucks: get over it
You know, Autumn is my favourite time of the year, what with the swooshing of the fallen leaves as you crunch through them on your way to school in your brand new sweater and all. It rates right up there with the very first blades of grass poking through the snow while you search for Easter eggs only to forget that one behind the clock on the mantle until it breaks open after festering putridly for months on end. Yep. Fall is my favourite time of the year.
- Outlook promising for Cougars men's hockey
The University of Regina Cougars men's hockey team will look to improve on last year's result as a new men's hockey season is set to begin.
- Bouchard hangs with best
It might not have been the 2008 Olympics, but it was close enough for one U of R athlete.
- Back at school and in a daze
For those students who are new to University life, or just new to the University of Regina, the first few weeks of school can be a confusing, often nerve-wracking experience.
