Projet Caomunhty
Founded in 1961 by a group of students, Project Commu-
nity evolved into a service-learning course in the mid-70's.
It combines service in the community and academic
learning consisting of weekly seminars, readings, journal
writing, and an integrative paper. The weekly service in
the community provides the context that gives meaning
to the readings and seminar discussions, and the academic
learning informs the service. The result is a rich educa-
tional experience.

Welcome to Project SERVE and to the community of
students who are involved in service and social action at the
University of Michigan. Across the country, college students
are rolling up their sleeves and becoming personally involved
in their community. The student service movement is
building. Students are working together with their commu-
nities to address community problems.
Students at the University of Michigan are no exception.
They have made a commitment to becoming aware of the
needs and challenges of both the local and global communi-
ties. They have made a commitment to take action. They
work at nursing homes, soup kitchens, and community
centers. They tackle the issues of homelessness, literacy,
poverty, violence and the environment. They work with
children, pregnant teens, people who are physically
challenged and senior adults.
They also work to encourage their fellow students to become
involved. By heightening awareness, increasing community
involvement, and raising social consciousness, we are striving
toward solutions to the problems that face our community.
If you are interested in being involved with Project SERVE,
please come to one of our mass meetings, September 19 or
20, at 7:00pm in Angell Hall, Aud B.

Back in the early '70s, WAR ruled the land. With their latin-derived beats,
deeply funky basslines and spiky horns, WAR shaped the way funk and R&B
bands sounded for the next two decades. Slowly but surely, they amassed
an impressive collection of classic singles - hits like "The World is a
Ghetto," "Why Can't We Be Friends?," "All Day Music," "Gypsy Man," "Spill
the WIne" and the immortal "Low Rider." Eclectic funk fusions weren't that
hip in the '80s, but as the '90s rolled around, WAR became hip again. This
year, WAR's momentum has kept snowballing, with the release of a new
record, "Peace Sign," and a successful tour, which is highlighted by
headlining the Saturday night show of the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival
at Gallup Park this weekend. Tickets are available either for the Saturday
performance ($13.50 in advance for one day or $15 at the gate; it's only
$10 if you have a student ID) or the entire festival (a mere $50).

Continued from page 8
good, quite possibly better than any-
thing NIN has done because it is openly
dopey. Frontman Mr. Manson recog-
nizes the hypocrisy of himself and the
entire entertainment industry, and ends
up being all the more palatable because
of it.
Speaking of palatable, the son
"Cake and Sodomy" is a wonderfuU
example of the combination of evil and
silliness. Take the imagery of the title.
Disturbingorlaughable? Why not both?
"Yeah, right, great if you're so good,
explain the shit stains on your face" is
a lyric that weasels its way between the
two and makes this band quite a bit
better than they would be if they were
simply evil.
Anyway, this twisted collection o
dark dreams and insane Saturday morn-
ing tabloid TV is pretty spiffy.

Patti LaBelle
Gems
MCA Records
The queen diva herself, Ms. Patti
LaBelle, is back, and after one sitting
with her newest release, there's onli
one question that will pop into your
mind. Is there anything this woman
can't sing?
"Gems" is good from beginning to
end. It is an excellent testament to
Patti's well publicized vocal prowess.
From her relatively fast paced songs,
like "RightKindaLover" to slow songs
(which initially made "Patti" a house-
hold word) like "I'm in Love" and "
Never Stopped Loving You," the 12
cutsof"Gems" will tickleyour eardums
and mellow out your mind. "Gems"
also includes a beautiful remake of the
1982 El DeBarge hit, "All This Love."
Patti is the queen, and "Gems" is
pure gold. Plain and simple.

Mayo Thompson
Corky's Debt to His Father
The Red Krayola
The Red Krayola
Drag City
A double-doseofone of pop music's
weirdest fringe acts, Mayo Thompson.
The leader of the Red Krayola and the
producer of the Raincoats' first album
these two discs are representative of his
quirky, often charming output.
"Corky's Debt" is a reissue of a
1970 release that mixes folk, blues and
whimsical lyrics and predates the suc-
cesses of hip folkies like Beck and the
Palace Brothers. Tracks like "The Les-
son," "Oyster Thins," and "Worried
Worried" are catchy enough to keep
one listening and odd enough to keep. -
you guessing.
"The Red Krayola" is the latest
release from the legendary, chaotic band
that pioneered art-punk in the '60s and
'70s. Titles like "Jimmy Silk/ Supper
Be Ready Medley," "Rapspierre," and
"Words, Worms, Thirst" and lyrics like
"I want more green on red" are just the
tip of the iceberg when it comes to the
eccentricity thatisRedKrayola. While
"The Red Krayola" seems to be too
weird and skronky to be listenable, theE
songs quickly grow familiar and even-
tually catchy. Both of these Mayo Th-
ompson releases are heartily recom-

mended to the musically adventurous.

Trance Planet, Vol. 1
Triloka Records
An awe-inspiring look into the
world of traditional, mostly third-world
music, "Trance Planet" is a must-get
CD for 1994. When you play this CD,
you won't hear any rap or rock or R&B
or country music. Instead, you will be
captivated by the music of the ancients
and their cultures-the music from
which all modern sounds are derived.
Listen as music from, what we view
as, lands worlds away from own-
places like Pakistan, Morocco and
Calcutta-causes your heart to race
while simultaneously, it soothes your
soul into utter serenity.
"Trance Planet" exemplifies what
music, in its ideal form, should be. By
taking us back to a time when music
was born, not from a capitalist longing
for money (from which anything re-
motely like music emerged), but rather@
from the needs of men and women to
express their inner feelings and emo-
tions in a way that conversation could
never achieve. This CD proves that
music is definitely the universal lan-

On Friday, September 16, 1994, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, the largest student organization festival on campus will again
take place on the Diag. Everyone who attended Festifall'93 knows that it was a great success with over 240 groups
participating, displaying their talents and resources in booths and activities. Festifall is an excellent way to recruit new
members and publicize your organization.
The pre-registration period is over. Please register in the Student Activities and Leadership Office 2202 Michigan Union.
The registration fee will be $17.00 for each space and your organization will NOT be on the Festifall map or in the
Festifall publicity.
There will be free soda pop, music, and roving entertainment, creating a carnival-like atmosphere. We encourage your
organization or department to make its own booth or display table. You can participate in a variety of ways. Students are
encouraged to attend to see the many ways they can become involved outside of the classrooms.
Groups have the option of circulating around the Diag and stopping to perform in various locations. Organizations that
might be interested in this option are: jugglers, mimes, magicians, dancers, etc. Please make sure to indicate your perfor-
mance interest on the registration form. Entertainment on the Grad steps or center of the Diag is scheduled on a first-
come, first-serve basis. Please be specific about the time requested and the type of entertainment provided. Groups
requesting amplification, please note that amplification is only allowed from the hours of 12:00pm-2:00pm. Tables
and booths will be set up on the Diag in designated areas. Each group using a table is expected to decorate it appropriately.
Please note: tables must be staffed at all times and cannot be enclosed on all sides.
Call the SAL office at 763-5900 or Campus Information Center at 763-INFO if on September 16 it is raining, or there is
a chance of inclement weather. A decision to postpone the event will be made by 7:30am, if necessary.
We hope that you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to spotlight your organization or department. All you
need to do is creatively design a booth and provide the people to staff it. We look forward to your continued participation
in this campus-wide event.
