A Day To Remember, Common Courtesy Album Review

Earlier this month, hardcore rock band A Day To Remember released their fifth album entitled Common Courtesy. This album brings them back to their strong riffs and lyrics like on their 3rd album, Homesick. After their lead guitarist, Tom Denney quit in 2009 it made their guitar lines a little weak, but new lead guitarist Kevin Skaff seems to be setting the bar higher for himself. This album has a wonderful flow and many different themes incorperated throughout. Jeremy Mckinnon outdid himself with some of the lyrics. A personal favourite is off track three, entitled "Sometimes You're The Hammer, Sometimes You're The Nail." The lyrics that speak most are towards the end of the song.

The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same


I had a teacher in High School once tell my class, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” He was referencing the history of politics and war. And as with most things, you can relate them directly to the wide world of sports. This pre-season’s men’s basketball top 25 rankings almost mirrored that of two or three decades ago. With Indiana at the top, Duke just behind, UNLV cracking the top 10, Michigan, Kentucky, and Arizona all with strong programs to start the year, sports enthusiasts across the nation might have thought the was the sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine 2. We’d picture Bobby Knight throwing chairs, Jalen Rose trash talking, Christian Laettner practicing turn arounds, maybe even Adolph Rupp walking out onto the floor instead of Calipari, which I’m sure would be welcomed by most of the nation. At the beginning of the year you could be asking yourself which team would prove to be dominant?

With only a month left until the madness, we’re still asking ourselves the same question, but it’s a question that most of us are glad to be asking. Ratings have declined substantially in the last ten years with so many youngsters fleeing the books and class rooms to the night clubs and team planes. We’ve been missing great rivalries that we were used to seeing year after years. In past years, you could walk into the Bellagio and place a bet at the beginning of the season on Kentucky to win the National Championship and you would almost have a 50/50 shot of being right. People were getting bored of watching freshmen and sophomores struggle through tight situations. No one was developing skills under some of the greatest coaching in the world...

Local Thrift Shops See Massive Profits

In preparation for the next month's Macklemore show, UNC students are lining up outside of thrift shops such as Goodwill, The Arc, and other locations in order to stock up on apparel. Students have been seen buying Tommy Bahama shirts, stainied ties and old suit jackets. 

One employee told us, "We owe it all to Mr. Macklemore. We can hardly keep any of our urine soaked clothes in stock." Goodwill also reported that they have seen massive increases in profits, almost doubling the normal revenue average in February alone. 

Students are encouraged to bring no less than $20 in their pockets, and expect lines and delays while trying to purchase clothes that will resemble "your grandpa's style." 

Tickets are officially sold out for the show, but for those who already have their tickets, be sure to stop by anyone of these local businesses and get your threads together for the show.

Tonight was the Student Fee Open form which had a massive turn out.  Only a few chairs sat empty this evening as every Organization on campus had an opportunity to either speak on their own behalf, or for other students to add their commentary.  Mostly positive comments came forward, while a few reflected change to come in the near future.  The event was run by Mr. Bourne who is the Director of Finance for UNC's Student Senate.
