Eat, drink and see movies: yeah, what else is there to do in A

By ALEXANDRA TWIN
Maybe I'm spoiled. So what? I'm
from New York and I like New York
and I like the things that you can do in
New York. Maybe I'm just ignorant
to the plethora of opportunities that
are Ann Arbor, but as far as my little
first-yeareyes can see, it would appear
that there are basically three things to
do here on the weekend. 1) drink 2)
eat 3) see a movie or play or do
something cultured like seeing a
movie or play.

#1 Drinking. Being that I am not
21 and that most people whom I know
are not 21, attempting to drink presents
something of a problem. Yes, it is
possible to find someone old enough
to "buy" for you or to just go
somewhere where alcohol is available,
but this puts you in a position where
you are dependent on somebody else
to ensure your only potential good
time. This can suck, because if they
flake out, the only thing you can do is
go eat. Which brings me to my second

point. Food, or the lack of it.
Some friends and I went to Palio's
on Main St. Friday night. Not only
was the food really good, but it had
probably been prepared sometime
recently.
Why should that factor be
shocking? Well, because we all live
in dorms. Being that I have a very
glamorous job as a West Quad
cafeteria employee, I know the inside
scoop, I feel that it is my duty to
inform you that dorm food sucks.
Apparently others have realized
this, too. The result of which is that
everybody, at least everybody in West
(and probably South, too) spends a
good deal of their time and entr6e plus
accounts in the Union. Yes, the Mug.
Kind of a fantasy and a nightmare

all rolled up into one, wouldn't you
say? Yeah, the fact that you can save
your Subway cup and keep refilling it
for days is pretty cool, butdoes anyone
go to that Wok place? Better yet, does
anyone know of anyone who's ever
gone there? 'Cause as far as I can tell,
nobody goes there. And another thing,
have you ever seen them cooking
anything? I haven't. I'm at The Mug
nearly every day and I'm telling you,
they don't cook. So, let's put this
together now: a) nobody buys their
food b) there's always food there c)
they don't seem to be cooking, yet d)
they're always stirring .
MMM. Sounds good. Gonna go
get me some of that Beef Teriyaki
right now, hope the year is good.
And what's with all the caf6's on

State Street closing at midnight? Don't
they have any self-respect? That's the
prime coffee hour. Everybody knows
that. In New York, some caf6's don't
even open 'til midnight. (O.K., that's
actually not true, but what do you
know? You've never even been there,
I could tell you anything.)
#3 Culture. Well, that's movies.
Oh, and plays, too, I guess, 'but I
haven't really been to any here.
Although I did think about going to
Pioneer High School's rousing
rendition of "Wait Until Dark" until it
suddenly occurred to me that a) I
don't have a car b) this is Pioneer
High School, exactly how rousing a
rendition could it be?
Oh, give me a break. I told you
already, I'm spoiled and I'm from
New York. Once you've seen
Broadway, there's not much that
Pioneer High School can do, even if
the sets are really good.
When I went home for Christmas,
I made sure to stock up on all the
independent-oriented films that I
could find. Why? Well, partly so that

The one element of the film which

often labeled New Age, "World

appropriate record-store-

I could taunt my fellow film writers
here at the Daily, since none of them
are from New York and partly because
I knew that if I didn't see the films
then, I wasn't going to be seeing them
anytime soon.
"Farewell My Concubine" made
it here, but where's "Naked"? And
what about "The Trial," "Faraway,@
So Close," and "What's Eating Gilbert
Grape"? That one even has heartland
heartthrob Johnny Depp in it and it's
still not playing here.
Oh, well. Complain, complain. At
least there's a film festival here this
weekend. Maybe after that, we can all
go find some caf6 that's still open and
sit and contemplate the likelihood of
kidnapping anyone 21 and over by
next weekend.
Or on second thought, why don't
we just skip the caf6? We can all ice-
skate back to my dorm for a little late-
night snack, instead. Espresso Royale?

Subway cup and an entree plus
account, what more could anyone ask
for?

categorization for the album. The
score, titled "Passion," as it is
marketed in retail record stores is a
sometimes cacophonic, oftentimes
richly somber work featuring
instruments and performers from
North Africa and the Middle East.
Unfortunately, the score is the
easier to find than the entire visual
text. "The Last Temptation of Christ"
suffered a strong, yet misguided blow
from the ultra-conservative
fundamentalist community
hypnotized into an ignorant state by
the misinformed diatribes of Pat
Robertson, the Moral Majority, the
ghost of Joseph McCarthy and
whoever else led the attack against;
this film. "The Last Temptation of
Christ" is not revisionist history. It is
an affirmation of the divinity of Christ
and a visualization of each
individual's repressed religious
struggle packaged in a thought-
provoking, accessible and
breathtaking work of art. In our
lifetime it has become the Christian
version of "The Satanic Verses" (short
of Marty's head being on some S
Southern preacher's chopping block
the way Salman Rushdie's is on the
Ayatollah's). It is damn near time it
started to get some consideration for
the technical and conceptual
watermark it is.
THE LAST TEMPTATION OF
CHRIST is available at Liberty
Street and Campus Video.
