Homosexual Hasidics can’t stand the heat

“Do not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abhorrence” (Leviticus 18:22). These startling words toward homosexual behavior flash across the screen as the poignant documentary Trembling Before G-d begins. Directed by Sandi Simcha Dubowski, Trembling before G-d is a documentary displaying the lives and struggle of ultra-orthodox and […]

WEB EXCLUSIVE: Hobbs uses Smith Center finale to end losing streak

Karl Hobbs and his Colonials ended a 10-game losing streak by defeating Richmond 53-49 on Senior Day at the Smith Center. The win, perhaps the sweetest yet this year, comes two days after the Colonials worst loss of the season, a 30-point beating by visiting Dayton. The Colonials gave up 40 fewer points against Richmond […]

John Mayer makes weekend a little longer

“Just so you know.” John Mayer began, “until we cross the threshold of that door-as far as we’re concerned it’s Friday” gesturing towards the entrance of The 9:30 Club this past Sunday night. Is this what is it means to hang with the man himself? An endless string of weekends. It might have been a […]

Sports: Having a home-court and maybe an advantage

While it is impossible to quantify exactly how playing at home contributed to the GW men’s 7-0 sweep of George Mason this weekend, a new air-pressured facility seem to be giving the men’s and women’s tennis teams a newfound home-court advantage. The domed facility, consisting of five indoor courts, is a major part of a […]

Staff editorial: Ride Colonial Express

The University Police Department seems to be on the right track to address the biggest problem students have with the late-night 4-RIDE service: long waits. While technology that would allow drivers to call when they are close by is a positive first step that should be implemented immediately, increased publicity of the Colonial Express is […]

Bi-racial Sex scandel, and teenage Apathy

Director Todd Solondz is a weird guy, really weird. No kind of bad parenting or strange past makes a guy like this. The dude is just plain crazy. He made us feel sorry for a child molester in Happiness and watch the famous “Are you going to rape me?” scene in Welcome to the Dollhouse. […]

Column: Kisses on the cheek abound for in-betweeners

I seem to run into someone I know everywhere I go. Whether it’s on campus, in Georgetown, at Fresh Fields, at Smith & Wollensky’s Grill or on the Metro, I find myself in awkward situations at least three times a day. These uncomfortable scenes occur when I see that particular person I’ve met once or […]

Arts: Costner watches career go to the grave

Kevin Costner’s hope to break free from his streak of flopped movies may just have to wait until next time. He doesn’t drink any urine in this one, but Dragonfly (Universal) is still bad because it doesn’t offer anything new, rather it simply piggy-backs on trite film conventions. Costner plays Dr. Joe Darrow a man […]
