Matchbox Twenty’s latest barely saves Season

Life is short for most radio-friendly bands. An album is released then a single from the album appears on the Billboard charts for a few weeks. If the band is lucky, Carson Daly will introduce its video at the number one slot on MTV’s Total Request Live. After that the band quietly disappears. Band members […]

GW student runs for ANC position

GW senior Jeff Marootian announced Friday that he will run for a position on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission. Marootian, a 21-year old Munson Hall community facilitator who is running unopposed, would replace GW graduate Steven Mandlebaum as District 2A commissioner in January. Elections are Nov. 7.

Volleyball takes two of three in American Classic

The GW women’s volleyball team won two out of three matches this weekend at the American Classic at American University’s Bender Arena, improving its record to 8-2. The team’s three-game victory over North Carolina State University Friday and four-game win over Purdue University Saturday afternoon resulted from an aggressive attack with multiple Colonials finishing with […]

HOVA pool leaks again

Some Hall on Virginia Avenue residents have seen more than their share of water since the school year began. The carpeting in an eighth floor room was replaced last week after a filter on the pump of the rooftop swimming pool leaked, said Vania Smith, HOVA’s community director. Michael Peller, the managing director for Property […]

Across the street from the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial on Constitution Avenue, a quirky, perplexing genius lounges on a white granite bench. In the yard of the National Academy of Sciences, this character is holding a paper that contains complex mathematical equations, such as the theory of relativity and the photoelectric effect. It is easy to […]

No parking any time?

Parking. In a major city it certainly has a different connotation than almost anywhere else. That perfectly-located spot down the street is like a mirage off in the distance, but the aggressive driver still guns the engine to reach it before anyone can claim it as their own. The driver speeds to that empty space […]

Column – Cola Wars come to campus

When will Coca-Cola’s tyranny over GW end? All I see these days is the red cup glaring like a communist banner. There seems to be some revisionist history at work: a year ago, it was the faux-iced over Pepsi cup – albeit in a cooler blue – that dominated the GW landscape. Yet today, it […]

New albums help to define the burgeoning sound of tech-house

In the mid-90s, a new sound was slowly developing in electronic music. Partially in response to a considered dumbing-down of techno, artists started to create a new sound. One that was more ambient and abstract, leaving behind a lot of the beats and danceability that techno had in the rave scene. Artists like Aphex Twin, […]
