Ive always been a little obsessed with Star Wars I love it
new and old, through good times and Lukes whiney voice,
watching every episode in sickness and in health. ough I
dont always agree with its decisions (read: Jar Jar Binks and
midi-chlorians), my love for the galaxy far, far away remains
greater than Palpatines love of creepy cloaks and Jabbas
love for food. Winter in Guelph may feel a little bit like Hoth,
but buy me the Millenium Falcon this February, and Ill be
your valentine.

Ill unabashedly swoon over anything punk rock: hardcore, noise,
anarcho, Oi!, peace, thrash, street, horror hell, even pop punk if
were talking about the Descendents.
If you want to get on my good side this Valentines Day, scoop me
up some punk paraphernalia: Id gladly free up shelf/wall space for
Aggronautixs line of robbleheads, a copy of Henry & Glenn
Forever, art by Raymond Pettibon, vintage zines, or if youre extra
ambitious a pressing of the Sex Pistolss Anarchy in the UK/
No Fun seven-inch (good luck, though; only three copies are known
to exist).
Alternatively, if you want to frost my akes, apply post-hardcore
to a discussion of a screamo or a metalcore band. ere is a time and a
place for the application of that term, and that is Fugazi.

My love aair with science started young. I always told people I
wanted to be a scientist. Nothing specic of course, because
to me being a scientist meant wearing a white coat and mixing
chemicals. Microscopes, telescopes and chemistry kits were
always high on my Christmas list each year.
Sadly, my relationship with science went through a troubled
period. During my early teens I thought I had outgrown it that
it was just a boyhood fascination. I was too cool for science, and
I turned my back on it.
NowI realize those mistakes of youth. Science is more than just a
methodology; its a way of experiencing the universe to connect
with everything around us. I now fully embrace my inner geek.

Ebay, oh ebay, how much do I love thee? Your
bargains so great, youre practically giving
things away for free.
Do I need yet another pair of tights? Probably
not, but please do not deprive, I can barely even
resist when they are only ..
e weather is so cold, and this cardigan will
surely be the x, Im determined to nd the best
deal in just a few clicks.
Day in and day out, I cant help but browse, I
can get all your stylish knock-os without even
leaving the house.
I scan and peruse, page after page...Ive spent so
much time ebaying that the hours can barely be
gauged.
New packages arriving every single week, its
like constantly receiving birthday or Christmas
gifts, so to speak.
is addiction needs to be broken, but how do I
begin? Im going to quit cold-turkey, but youre
acting like ebaying is wearing me thin.
Wait! An ebay email notication has just arrived,
so I digress, obviously if I dont check all new
emails, my inbox will be a mess!

A line or two for the men in the blue,
Which the season doth bring to me and to you.
Birds of summer adorning their caps,
A throw of the hide, the swing of the bat.
e grass and the dirt with chalk lines drawn true,
Ought lighten the mood for an hour or two.
Pretzels and pilsner I do not lack,
But hot dogs and peanuts soon I will track.
I turn o the phone when the boss starts calling,
en look on the eld where the benches are brawling.
Victory is certain, of that theres no doubt,
A long awaited end to this playo drought.
As innings progress and the opposition is stalling,
e home team will surely send them back bawling.
e batter strides to the plate, patient and stout,
e umpire gestures thats three strikes, youre out!
So short is the train ride I take to get home,
I miss it already, that place called SkyDome.
Long hours I work throughout the week,
Keeping in mind its the weekend I seek.
e return of Saturday with Sunday in tow,
ere cant be a mystery to where I will go.
And so I remember when life becomes bleak,
e crack of the bat, the sun on my cheek.
Its this I remember on this February day,
eyve stolen my heart, my beloved Blue Jays.

You feel nervous, giddy even, and hyper-aware of your surroundings. eres a utter in your chest (or in your stomach). e world seems
better, brighter somehow. Im referring, of course, to the stimulant eects of caeinated coee.
My morning brewof choice would be the appropriately named Kick Ass coee by Kicking Horse Coee Co. Lest this turn into an advertorial,
Ill simply state that the package label boasts its sweet, smoky, audacious qualities, indulging my appreciation for apt adjectives as well
as providing a bold kick of caeine that has become a daily necessity.
My relationship to this substance may involve some (chemical) co-dependency, but caeine fuels my other love: writing. Admittedly,
this can be more of a tumultuous love-hate dynamic, but writing about appreciation for the written word would be obscenely redundant.
Besides, I havent even had my coee today yet.

Maps are my one true love. Beyond instilling in me a wonder at places Ive never been
and their utilitarian value, cartography is an art. e choice of colours and symbology the
cartographer uses can have as much bearing on the meaning of the map as an artists choice
of medium. When Im not critiquing gure-ground contrast in textbook maps or the not-
to-scale doodle maps of amusement parks, I like to go adventuring in unfamiliar territory
(if I get lost, it was on purpose, of course). e best way to my heart this Valentines Day
is probably to nd me a world map displayed in Bonne Projection.

With each word, he brought you closer and closer to a truer, enlightened self. He eortlessly strung together sentences that are held deep
within your soul, ones you never thought someone else could vocalize. He was wise beyond his years. He understood that life is a lesson.
Once he succeeded in sharing his observations with the world through interviews and his only album, Grace, he was no longer a student of
life but a teacher. Je Buckley oated on his back on the Wolf River that day in , closed his eyes and passed on, while his favourite Led
Zeppelin song blared from the shore. He had so manifestly understood life, no longer requiring its daily lessons to reach enlightenment. If
I were to have a soul mate, Je Buckley would be it. He possessed a contagious purity not only to his voice and lyrics, but his entire being.
I nd him to be sincerely inspiring, and live through his words every day.

When God, or any other spiritual power, force, or supermarket, provides you with lem-
ons, make lemon tarts. And if possible, do it in large quantities. If you bake or buy the right
kind, their crusts will be soft and crumbly, while their llings will be sour and creamy. Stay
away from the overly yellow-coloured ones, and if you get the chance, try Du ets ver-
sion of the tarts. You will not be disappointed. Unlike people, lemon tarts will not let you
down. ey will sit by your side, waiting patiently for you to get a craving for them, and
when you do, they will happily infuse your mouth with delicious tart-y avours. Trust me,
they are a much smarter investment for your money than any other food item you might
be tempted to purchase on your grocery run. Its undeniable, I love em.

e raw power and emotion I get from playing the drums is like no other. After a hard day at work I nd rocking out on the drum kit a cathartic experience that is great for
the mind, body and soul. e drums will take everything youve got to give them plus more, and they will always be down for another beating no matter the time of day. In
my biased opinion, I think playing the drums is super fun and, theyre one of the hardest instruments to master. My favourite drummers in no particular order include: Danny
Carey, Neil Peart, Brian Brain Mantia, Joey Jordinson, Vinnie Paul & Brad Wilk, just to name a few. In the end, what can I say, except that I like to bang things!
moni que ( offi ce manager)
Harmony. I Iove harmony. Im obsessed with harmony. Im not talking about harmony in the sense of agreement and peace between peoples (although, Im
rather passionate about that as well), but Im talking the harmony of sound. Two or more tones of sound coming together in vibrational resonance, so pleasing
not only to the human ear, but to the human psyche.
Vocal harmony in particular is an absolute obsession of mine. I love nothing more than to bring voices together in delicious, complex chord structures that
are juxtaposed against sudden surprises of dissonance and then resolved back into perfect harmonious order. Its better than chocolate so satisifying.
Whats even more satisfying is singing with a group who can bring these notes together so purely that the vibrations send shivers up the spine, in eect,
realigning all thats out of place inside. Who needs a chiropractor, join your local choir! e timbre of each unique, earthy voice blending together in some
perfect mathematical formula of sound; how could it not but heal an injured soul or aching heart. e connectedness, the feeling of oneness, the joining of
breathe and voice. Yes, harmony is my church; my medicine; my place to rejuvenate; my obsession.

Brew Review: feel like a viking? Drink like one
Chris Mller
Scotch ale gets its name from its place of
origin, the proud nation of Scotland. The
term Scotch ale was first applied to
strong beers exported from Edinburgh
around the 18th century. The style be-
came popular throughout the United
Kingdom and eventually found support
in other brew-rich nations like Belgium
and Germany.
Scotch ale may have historically
roasted its malt content through a peat
fire (peat is available extensively in Scot-
land), imparting a mild scotch-flavour
and aroma to the malt. Brewed as an ex-
port product, the higher alcohol content
of the brew may in part be due to the
requirements of keeping the beer clean
during long voyages over land and sea.
The Orkney Brewery, located
amongst the Orkney Islands of Scotland,
has produced the excellent Skull-Split-
ter, a dutiful homage to centuries-old
brewing traditions of the Scottish Isles.
Skull-Splitter was the nickname of
Thorfinn Hauskaluif, the seventh Vi-
king Earl of Orkney.
Citing a brewing tradition over 500
years in the making, this brew is not for
the faint of heart.
The somewhat pricey 330ml bottle
contains a potent 8.5 per cent ABV, the
effect of which is immediately available
to the palate.
Poured into a traditional pub pint
glass, the ale pours a dark red colour
with a mahogany hue, leaving a soon-
to-disappear off-white coloured head
with a thickness of about half a thumbs-
width. The smell is one of spiced alcohol,
caramel, and mild fruit and hop aro-
mas very pleasant and appetizing in
the winter months.
A taste reveals the intensity of the
brew as the alcohol content produc-
es a warming sensation in the mouth
and throat, while the caramel and toffee
flavours provide sweetness and balance
to a mildly bitter body.
Youll be hard-pressed to find a better
example of Scotch ale locally, and this im-
ports pleasant mouth-feel and warming
character should eliminate the need to
search for another example of the style.
The price might seem a little steep, but
its worth every soon-to-be-eliminat-
ed penny you can find around the house.
Enjoy this one responsibly, Viking hel-
met not included.
Anti-anti Valentines Day rant
staCey aspinall
Valentines Day has everyone seeing
the world through rose-tinted glass-
es; love is in the air, and along with
it, the skeptics, cynics and stoics will
emerge from the shadowy depths of
their solitary lives to judge anyone
who chooses to partake in celebra-
tions. It can sometimes seem like
there are more complainers than
partakers in this widely disparaged
Hallmark Holiday. Even if you wish
to live in blissful ignorance, its hard
to deny the importance people place
on this day.
What Valentines Day ofers is an
interesting sociological phenomenon
that is best observed with a sense of
detached curiosity: in addition to the
push to purchase chocolate, fowers
and cards to prove your afection,
its ultimately a day in which many
people end up evaluating their entire
existence through the lens of rela-
tionships. It seems to force people
to confront their romantic status
in life, to varying results. Teres a
reason it is referred to, tongue-in-
cheek, as Singles Awareness Day.
Tose lacking in that department
get (understandably) defensive and
often denounce the holiday altogeth-
er, indulging in anti-Valentines Day
sentiments and chocolate in equally
unhealthy quantities.
Unfortunately what the media and
popular discourse in general tends to
do during the dull days of February is
to pit the two groups - couples and
singles - against each other, creating
a clear divide between each defned
category. Tere are the haves and
have nots. Relationships become
the currency by which we judge the
value of our lives.
Tere are undeniable social expec-
tations associated with each group as
well. Whether or not you chose to
internalize these ideas and stereo-
types such as the lonely single person,
and the blissful love-drunk couple, is
entirely up to you; its all a matter of
perspective. For me, personally, Val-
entines Day is a non-event.
But the point Im trying to make
here is that those who incessant-
ly complain only exacerbate the
problem (you know who you are).
Cynics seem to take a sick satisfac-
tion in espousing anti-Valentines Day
discourse - because theres nothing
like working yourself into an impas-
sioned frenzy in order to convince
people of how much you just dont
give a shit.
You can keep your love-sick cyn-
icism; as of this point in time, my
relationship status will remain
undisclosed.
