Pop's former 'Brat Queen' impresses with lovely, mature 'Machine'

(10/12/05 9:00am)

Singer-songwriter Fiona Apple has been noticeably absent from the music scene for the past six years. During that time, she's done a little growing up, a little soul-searching and -- according to Apple -- a healthy amount of nothing at all. This unlikely recipe for success pays off in Apple's playfully self-assured third album, "Extraordinary Machine." Her first effort since 1999's "When the Pawn" is both a bleakly humorous examination of conscience and a wry celebration of the sort of doomed romances over which Apple spent most of her first two albums brooding.

Men's golf finishes seventh at Yale invite

(10/12/05 9:00am)

The Dartmouth men's golf team battled a scoring controversy and a torrential downpour this weekend at The Course at New Haven for the annual Yale Macdonald Cup. Coming off a notable second-place finish at the ECAC Championship, the Big Green finished a satisfying seventh out of a field of 20 teams, shooting a strong total two-round score of 589 for the Macdonald Cup.

What Not to Say

In a recent broadcast of his "Morning in America," the radio talk show host and former Reagan Administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett went out on a limb and made a drastically inappropriate statement. Citing a hypothesis that linked the falling crime rate to a rising abortion rate, Bennett commented that "if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." Aborting black babies, he continued, would be "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down."

The 'Shoes' don't fit: 'chick flick' or not, Hanson's latest is terrible

(10/11/05 9:00am)

The term "chick flick" gets tossed around a lot these days. In an era of machismo-laden action spectaculars, almost any film where the lipstick upstages the laser guns is instinctively filed in moviegoers' minds alongside movies like "Legally Blonde," "Miss Congeniality 2" and Hugh Grant's entire filmography. Given the misogynistic undertones of this rigid system of classification, I tried hard to walk into "In Her Shoes" thinking of it not as the chick flick it had been marketed as, but simply as a movie. And "In Her Shoes" is a movie, but a terrible one.

Sailing weathers storms at Navy and Ivy regattas

(10/11/05 9:00am)

Despite their inexplicable love of neoprene, Dartmouth sailors certainly prefer a windy and sunny day to a windy and wet one. Unfortunately, the Big Green sailors encountered cold and soggy conditions Saturday and Sunday at the Navy Fall Women's Intersectional Regatta and the Mosbacher-Knapp Ivy League championship. But while many might not consider New Hampshire a strategic sailing stronghold, inclement weather is nothing new for the men and women in green, who earned consistently high places in both regattas.
