These Web sites will help provide relief during times of study; they are a way to procrastinate, all under the guise of getting inspiration. Whether you’re stuck on a sonnet, perplexed by a proof, or otherwise desperate for new perspective, you can go to the following pages to jump-start your creativity.
Apparently no one told Linwood that pseudo-heavy, radio-friendly rock was so 2003. These poor guys have been playing together for nearly 15 years, but on their first album, the Cleveland, MS musicians betray their age.
It is important to get an early start on the study abroad process. In fact, members of the Office of Overseas Programs say that it’s about time for freshmen to begin looking at programs and weighing their options. In that vein, several advisers from the Office of Overseas Programs will be hosting a presentation follow by a question and answer session next Tuesday, April 29, at 8 p.m. at Ursa’s Fireside.
The Mars Volta blew it. They blew the collective mind of the sold-out crowd at the Pageant last Thursday, that is.
Philip Glass was a minimalist; Thrice just never does anything with “The Alchemy Index Vol. III & IV.” All 12 tracks are very different, spanning new age to spirituals, but that only lends to the feeling that the album is an exercise in mediocrity.
One hundred and sixteen stars extolling famous St. Louisans line Delmar Boulevard. Many of the names are familiar to Wash. U. students-Eliot, Nemerov and, of course, two Danforths. Most are widely known-Miles Davis, Ulysses Grant and Joseph Pulitzer. All had an immense, global impact in their fields and are either St. Louis natives or did their most noteworthy work here, whether researching elucidated carbohydrate metabolism at the medical school or playing for the Cardinals.
From 1986 to 1987, Black Flag, The Clash, The Dead Kennedys and Hüsker Dü all disbanded-the punk community’s second coming had seemingly peaked. The next generation of bands began exploring new territory, eventually giving rise to everything from the pop-punk of Blink-182 to post-hardcore bands like At the Drive-in.
Networking is a lot like dating,” Career Center Director Mark Smith explains. “You’re always just looking for someone to introduce you.” Indeed, networking is one of the most useful skills for students applying for graduate programs, scholarships and jobs.
R.E.M.’s newest album “Accelerate” does exactly that.
Recalling their upbeat hits of the late ’80s and early ’90s like “Orange Crush,” the vanguards of modern alt-rock craft a tuneful collection sure to please fans disappointed by the band’s last release, 2004′s lackluster “Around the Sun.”
Papa Roach has weathered a lot of flack over the years, most of it undeserved (although, admittedly, “Scars” is a maudlin, pathetic attempt at a power ballad). Listeners have accused them of selling out, and generally consider the members illegitimate rock stars; nothing could be further from the truth.
