at Al's got them final moanin' blues
By Fat Al Paul
Last day of classes are upon us
and finals are bearing down. We've
got them final moanin' blues. Lots
of viewer moanin' going on too so
I thought I'd take this opportunity
to print a few last Fat Al letters of
the term. Thanks for writing in,
Love your columns - a lot
more interesting than Bob Talbert.
Ever try the chili fries at Red Hot
Lovers? Best eats in town. Ever
notice how 'U' students feel we go
to the best university in the
country? Don't we? Love the record
reviews and concert previews -
turned me onto the blues.
Tom Streicher, South Division
Thanks for the kind words Tom
and I'm on my way over to East
University right now. Hmmm-
How come all your band
previews are always so positive?
I've seen some of these bands and
they ain't so great. Maybe all those
free tickets and free vinyl are
affecting your taste. I think I'm
onto something here - looks like a
scam to me.
Dick Smith, South Division
Yeah right. Whatever you say,
The Daily is bad, the arts page
worse and your column the pits!
Tracy Penland, Packard
Something keeps you writing
in, Tracy. Ever hear of the Ann
Love your column so I knew
you'd understand my problem. I'm
sick and tired of all the brats at the
'U' who think they're still in high
school. How dare people go to class
and chat away while the prof
struggles to be heard above the din.
Don't these folks know that they
don't have to go to class? Momma
ain't keeping track and the diag's
calling. Where do all these half
baked idiots come from anyhow?
The Empire State no doubt.
Art Rummler, Catherine Street
You've got a point here Art.
Too bad the term's up. Take it up
again in the fall maybe? But hey,
let's keep re gional factionalism out
of it. Everyone knows the Great
Lakes State rules anyhow.
How about all the recent
protests around here? Great to see
that students still give a damn isn't
it?...Who is the "academy" anyhow
and how could this year's Oscars
have actually been real? Paul
Newman best actor for a glorified
pool video? Sentiment should play
no role in "best" awards. Marlee
Matlin best actress? Come on now,
the academy just felt bad because
she'll never make another movie.
Great name though. Platoon best
picture? Just easing Hollywood's
Ramboesque guilt. Obviously, they
didn't bother to see Salvador, the
other Oliver Stone nominated film.
Not only was it far superior to
Platoon but James Woods acted
circles around the canny veteran
Speaking of Woods, his Joshua
Then and Now was one of last
year's best critically and popularly
ignored films. Hilarious and
poignant. And Alan Arkin is
superior as Woods' Jewish mafiosa
On a more serious note, anyone
else notice what's happening to
rents around good old A squared?
Wow, right through the ceiling!
Who can afford to pay such
exorbinant rates anyhow? Maybe
the same brats Mr. Rummler
referred to in above letter?
Slumlords beware, Fat Al's
thinking about calling for a student
rent strike in the fall! It would free
up more cash for chili fries
Saturday morning cartoons just
ain't what they used to be are they?
Nowadays the morning tube's
chock full of supernatural monsters,
furry creatures and space heroes.
Whatever happened to Scooby Doo,
The Jackson Five, and The Harlem
Globetrotters? At least they were
people (and dogs). But it is good to
see Pee Wee Herman raising Cain
in the am.
Fat Al's campus event of the
year? Saturday nights' track/crew
team's nude mile run. Maybe these
lovable nutballs will bring
streaking back into vogue. What's
next, an Evil Kneivel resurgancey?
Calvin and Hobbes are the best
thing to happen to the funnies page
since Blooom County. Love that
nostalgic feel. It reminds me of my
own twisted and fat childhood. The
first book of that looney duo is on
the market. Pick it up for study
breaks and keep those final moanin'
blues at bay.

and visually undisturbed for the
viewer to savor.
Two totally unconventional
artists round out the group and give
it depth; Hyun Mi Jang and Sarah:
Braddock. Both work primarily with
fibers, but each sets their own
boundaries regardless of tradition.
Braddock manipulates wood and.
metal in suchstrange ways that she
transforms them, so that one
appears to be the other. This weird
transpositioning is especially
apparent in her rolled wood pieces,
which take on a metallic gleam by
way of hand painting. Jang's
weavings utilize color as their
vehicle of expression, capturing
warm, seasonal moods.
Obviously, this is just an
overview. To fully appreciate these
artists' varied talents, you have to
see it, which everyone should do as
a break from studying.
