As the songwriter whose works famously inspired filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson to make his three-hour epic "Magnolia," it seems only fitting that Aimee Mann finally wrote an operatic narrative of her own. And like "Magnolia," "The Forgotten Arm" is a moving account of desperate characters (a washed-up boxer and the junkie who loves him) searching for redemption that is occasionally frustrating but ultimately quite poignant. Mann refused to fall prey to the rock opera pitfalls of bombast and over-explanation and remained true to her graceful, understated, make-every-note-count style and proved it could be a perfectly fine vehicle for an album-length storyline.

Considering that all the players from last year's Ivy League championship team are returning to the Leede Arena hardwood, expectations for the Dartmouth women's basketball team are high for the 2005-06 season.
The 2005 season came to a painful close for the Dartmouth women's soccer team on Thursday night. After 90 minutes of hard fought, generally well-executed play, the Big Green found itself on the short end of a 2-1 final score against Boston College in the first round of this year's NCAA Tournament.
When the Dartmouth women's soccer team left the field after Sunday's commanding 5-0 victory over Ivy rivals Cornell, none of the players or coaches knew for sure whether their 12-4-1 overall record and 5-2-0 conference marks would be enough to get the Big Green back onto the field and into the NCAA Tournament.
On Sunday, the senior class of the Dartmouth women's soccer team donned the green for the last time, so it was only appropriate that the scoring sheet read like the roll call for the pre-game ceremony. Co-captain Megan Wijas '06 notched three assists on the day and fellow seniors Christina Ferraris '06 and Allison Green '06 each scored once with Jennie Tonneson '06 adding an assist to her season total as the Big Green downed the Cornell Big Red 5-0.
When cross-state rivals Dartmouth and Vermont clashed on Wednesday in a battle for field hockey supremacy, neither team gave an inch for most of the contest.
Women's Volleyball -- In her fourth year with the Big Green women's volleyball team, Kristen Shockley has been promoted to Associate Head Coach. Shockley has worked in Hanover since leaving DePauw University in 2002. She was the assistant coach for a Tigers team that went 59-12 over a two-season span. Shockley also had an impressive career as a two-sport athlete in college, playing both basketball and volleyball at Ohio Wesleyan University. She finished off her playing career with an NCAA Woman of the Year nomination in 2000.
Many more games like this and Dartmouth women's soccer coach Angie Hind may have to see a cardiologist. As if one overtime game isn't enough to test her ticker, Hind's team just had its third consecutive game go into sudden death on Wednesday night. Of course, victory is pretty strong medicine and the Big Green delivered a big dose of it against the Minutewomen of UMass in a 1-0 extra period thriller in Amherst, Dartmouth's third victory in as many games.
Though she has yet to play one minute of college hockey, Sarah Parsons '09 has already made it into one of women's hockey's most elite clubs.
It's not easy being a legend. By definition, it means that one's reputation is so great that it's nearly impossible to match in reality. Moreover, as time passes, the reputation only grows to greater proportions, as the actual person behind it ages and looks less and less like the legendary persona.
It isn't often that the opportunity comes along to see two of music's rising stars on one stage at the same show. It's even rarer that those two artists should be climbing the ranks in two different genres.
Jesus Christ, the Buddha, Josef Stalin and not one but two cardboard boxes will share the stage Tuesday night, here in Hanover, for one night and one night only. What, aside from an act of God or the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony could assemble such a cavalcade of stars?
In its storied history, the English port city of Liverpool has exported its fair share of great music to the world. Among the notable artists to come from the banks of the Mersey are legendary rocker Elvis Costello, '80s synth-pop icons Frankie Goes to Hollywood and permanent college radio darlings Echo and the Bunnymen. There was some other group from there that had a couple hits in the '60s. You know, the guys with funny haircuts and the goofy drummer? Oh well, it doesn't matter. What does matter is that Liverpool has produced yet another superb band and now you have a chance to see them.
Yes, it's wrong to stereotype, but goshdarnit, Canadians are such nice folks! They've contributed so much to American culture for so long (Dan Aykroyd, four-fifths of The Band, Molson, numerous cold fronts, the list goes on) that it's a wonder one nation could be so generous. What's more, now that a mad scramble for American dollars has strangled the life out of Canada's most revered institution, the National Hockey League, our neighbors to the north have not only turned the other cheek, they've sent us yet another gift for our entertainment.
In a time when popular culture seems to be split along lines of red and blue, it seems appropriate that it's currently a gaggle of zany characters sporting red caps and blue Speedos that has moviegoers starkly divided. "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," the latest film from young auteur Wes Anderson of "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Rushmore" fame, is the rare sort of film that has critics and fans alike doing battle over its merits and flaws. What's more, the plot doesn't even involve a dying Messiah or a sitting president. One camp decries the film as a disjointed, unfocused and strange mess. The other cheers it as a dizzying, ambitious and wonderfully whimsical masterpiece.
For a small college situated in the New Hampshire wilderness, Dartmouth has attracted many non-academic celebrities to campus, ranging from talented musical artists to sports legends and high-ranking politicians.
Autobiography in film has always been a tricky business. Having the director also write and star in an autobiographical film is even more dangerous. And more perilous still is having a first time director write and star in an autobiographical film. There exists an immense possibility of plummeting into the abyss of bad films made by otherwise talented people.
The track and field gods were not with Athens, Ga., native Adam Nelson '97 in Wednesday's Olympic men's shot put finals at the ancient Olympic stadium. In a nail-biting competition, Yuriy Bilonog of the Ukraine tied Nelson's best attempt of 21.16 meters in the sixth and final round. This forced officials to go to the tie-breaking second-best attempts and give the gold to Bilonog whose second-best throw of 21.15 meters bettered Nelson.
As a journalist, distinguished visiting Rockefeller Center scholar Ron Suskind has become increasingly frustrated with President George W. Bush and what he calls a "dome of silence around the White House" on policy issues.
Sheer size -- it's one of new hoops coach Terry Dunn's most apparent attributes. With his tall, muscular frame, broad shoulders and large hands, Dunn is the sort of man who enters a room and is almost sure to stand quite literally head and shoulders above everyone else.
