THE TOP TEN ALBUMS OF 2005

(01/06/06 11:00am)

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.





Women's soccer sends seniors off with one last victory

(11/07/05 11:00am)

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.

(09/28/05 9:00am)

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.


Women's soccer wins third straight OT thriller at UMass

(09/23/05 9:00am)

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.






Zutons bring Brit rock to Boston on Friday

(02/10/05 11:00am)

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.


Canada's Arcade Fire wrap up American tour in Boston

(02/03/05 11:00am)

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.


Anderson makes a delightful mess of 'The Life Aquatic'

(01/04/05 11:00am)

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.




Nelson '97 narrowly misses shot put gold

(08/19/04 9:00am)

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.
