Coen brothers fall short

The Coen brothers have brought some of the most original movies in the ’90s to the public eye. Fargo, The Big Lebowski and O Brother Where Art Thou apply an often dark sense of humor to offbeat scenarios and unpredictable plots. But with The Man Who Wasn’t There, the brothers’ homage to the classic black-and-white […]

One last dance at the Wilson Center

This is how the revolution began: a dozen bands and a bunch of kids in some ratty basement screaming their lungs out. D.C. punk rock, pure and innocent. Now, almost 20 years later, that same basement – the infamous Wilson Center in the heart of D.C. – is legendary. After two decades as an epicenter […]

Arts: Swingers star discusses success

While making his credited screen debut in Rudy, Vince Vaughn became friends with another struggling young actor, Jon Favreau, who decided to write Vaughn into a script he was working on. That script eventually became the critical hit Swingers. And what at first seemed a minor career sideline soon vaulted Vaughn into films by such […]

GW’s Liquid Arts hits Hippodrome

It was just another calm night at the Hippodrome Tuesday, besides a World Series game and return of Michael Jordan playing on TV screens … and the group of break-dancers spinning on their heads. The first event held by Liquid Arts, a new GW student group dedicated to the “urban arts,” drew a crowd of […]

Staff Editorial: Flawed response

Nearly a week elapsed between the discovery of an anthrax-tainted letter in U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle’s (D-S.D.) office in the Hart Senate Office Building and testing at the Brentwood Road postal facility that handles all mail for the District. In that time, two D.C. postal workers fell ill and eventually died of inhalation anthrax. And […]

As I See It: SA has money to spare, just ask for it

While the past Hatchet editorial “Sluggish SA” (Oct. 18, p. 4) brought an immediate response from the top of the SA ladder (I’ll get to that controversy in my next column), I am waiting to see what the SA’s response will be to the Oct. 25 Letter to the Editor “Rags for Rugby?” Given my […]

Quote of the Week

Anonymous message posted on on activities in the Corcoran Hall first floor bathroom: “This bathroom is hot! There is constant action there all the time, every day of the week.”

Sports: Out of left field: The World’s Series

Lindy’s was packed, I was pumped. I figured being at a bar with a bunch of obnoxious New Jerseyans was the next best thing to being at Yankee stadium. But when I sat down I noticed something was slightly off. People were staring at the TV’s, but there was no barroom baseball banter. No one […]

Golf ends fall in 16th-place at Seascape

Both Thomas Blankvoort and the GW golf team tied for 16th place at last weekend’s Old Dominion Seascape Collegiate in Kitty Hawk, N.C. The Colonials ended the team’s fall schedule with a small victory, beating Richmond for the first time since 1982. The University of North Carolina-Wilmington edged the University of Maryland for the tournament […]
