I'D LIKE TO start a magazine called
Infraction. I really would. A magazine that
breaks all the rules. In a way, Weekend
ought to be subtitled Infraction, given that
the rule in the print medium right now is
blithering banality. Just plain unrelentless
You get a bunch of movie critics trying to foist
stars off on you. You get music critics playing it
safe by telling you about what was instead of
what is. You get theatre critics who wish they
could give stars like movie critics. You get
statement of the obvious.
If there's one thing Weekend's not it's bland. It
may worship false gods once in a while but it
doesn't blither. That's the essence of its charac-
But it's an irridescent character and that's
what I write about every week in this spot. A
character is worth fostering.
Oh, feed me to the lions! A tame, sanitized
Weekend magazine over my mauled lifeless
Daily staff writer Steve Wise
examines the complicated world of in-
tercollegiate sports recruiting and
finds some defensive talk and sur-
prisingly radical suggestions. See
Between white and red there is pink.
It's a delicate color and so are the
characters in Antique Pink, a drama
about lonely lives that opens this
weekend. Another ambitious produc-
tion from Project Theatre. See page
This week's featured local band is
Sleep, who in their one year of
existence have become one of the hot-
test rock peddlers the Motor City has
to offer. Drawing from a limitless
range of musical and non-musical in-
fluences, they have. forged a
physically powerful and deeply com-
pelling sound which is ever expanding
and truly their own. See page 5.
This regular feature of Weekend
magazine proves there's more to Ann
Arbor nightlife than walking around
smashing bottles. And let's not forget
afternoon and morning life. Enter-
tainments is your guide to campus
cinema, first-run movies, concerts of
all kinds, theatre, and dance. And for
that day when nothing quite looks
good, check out the listings under
"Furthermore." See page 6.
"I just wanted a girl and now I have
to die for it," says Griffin Dunne as a
young man trapped in a bizarre
nightmarish evening in After Hours.
Strange things happen late at night.
Once it's after hours different rules
apply. "I'm just a computer
programmer for Christ sake," says
the young man. See page 8.
Catch of the day
Weekend columnist Mike Fisch con-
fesses that he's sometimes serious.
See page 9.
Food for thought
Hunger abatement, like many
primal concerns, is a priority oc-
cupation of college life. While food as
sophisticated entertainment is often
subverted by budgetary con-
siderations, it is essential to keep
abreast of the diversity of eats - to be
prepared for any sudden or calculated
mood shift - and fill the tank accor-
dingly. See page 11.
