INTERVIEW: Weeping with Jimmy Eat World

So you think they are a 12-year-old girl’s band? OK, we know they’re pretty guys, with sensitive eyes and passionate anthems about lost love. And maybe they’ve been riding the wave of MTV success, catering to the sensibilities of a nation obsessed with pop culture. So maybe the members of Jimmy Eat World are just […]

Jackie Chan gets butt kicked

“Nice rack,” the most repeated phrase in the new Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt movie, actually fails to fulfill its connotative purpose. Used by Mr. Chan at Ms. Hewitt’s expense, it ultimately causes the audience to lose respect for both characters. The hackneyed early-‘90s phrase limps off the screen. The joke doesn’t reach its […]

Reese may be hot, but her movie is not

Once again Reese Witherspoon claims her position as America’s sweetheart. She delivers a more than enjoyable performance in her latest romantic comedy, Sweet Home Alabama. The film’s combination of Reese and her good-looking co-stars may place it in the “chick flick” section, yet the wit and humor of the South drag the movie out of […]

Warner scores four, knocks off American

Kim Warner’s four goals led the GW women’s soccer team over visiting American 4-2 Wednesday, ending the Colonials three-game losing streak and launching them into this weekend’s Atlantic 10 conference-opener on a high note.

Protesters to hit District

Protesters will bring a long list of grievances with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund with them when they descend on the city this weekend. The demonstrations, which have been held at meetings of the international lending organizations since 1999, are an amalgamation of different causes under the catchall slogan “global justice.” Issues […]

GW preps for demonstrations

University officials said they are “pretty comfortable” that students will be safe during this weekend’s World Bank and International Monetary Fund protests. GW added 44 security officers in residence halls, academic and administrative facilities, but students should exercise caution and keep themselves out of potentially dangerous situations to ensure safety, officials said. GW hired security […]

Op-Ed: Walls do not define debate

People often look at my former high school, the School Without Walls, and point out the things that it does not have. It does not have a gymnasium. There is no cafeteria. Some unfamiliar with the school even believe the building lacks physical walls. The debate over what to do with the aging facility is […]

Letter: Eat something else

Jimmy Eat World. Let us take a moment to carefully ponder what that means. To be able to eat the world you have to be larger than the world, meaning that this band is larger than life as we know it … ha! I saw a quote in the article (“Mellow crowd marks Superfest,” Sept. […]
