CBS is going for the Thursday
night kill when it pits Survivor
II against NBC's Friends start-
ing with the second episode
Feb. 1.
For the past decade, NBC con-
trolled Thursdays with its
"Must See TV" lineup. SeinfeldN
and Frasier are gone, and the
8:30 and 9:30 followups to
Friends and Will and Grace
have performed poorly.
Plus the Friends' cast may be
pushing their 'trying to pretend "Hov
they're hip 21-year olds" act." kik

Dustin Seibert jects placed his
name on the map
with a ten-track album that would prove
to be a ground-breaking piece in the
world of hip-hop. A masterpiece. A
Magnum Opus if you will: Nasty Nas'
I/lnnatic was and remains the definitive
blend of vivid strect-tales and well-craft-
ed rhymes over some the coldest beats
from the finest producers the genre has
to offer.
From "N.Y. State of Mind" to "It Ain't
I lard To Tell," every single track on the
LP stands with it's own special state of
grace. The album also marked the begin-
ning of AZ's career, and is.one of the few
albums in existence featuring the musical
stylings of the two finest hip-hop pro-
ducers EVER: Pete Rock and DJ
Premier.
Alas, Nasty Nas turned to Nas
Escobar and again to Nastradamus, and
hie increasingly dumbed down his flow= to
keep in tune with who'? The commnefrcial
audience, that's who! Nas lost much of
his original fanbase for this reason, and
chances are he will never again make an
album that will come close to Il/matic.
Though '94 was not !ong ago, it was an
entirely different era in hip-hop, and Nas'
first album was a cornerstone in the 25-
plus year old history of the game. If you
don't own Ilhatic, chances are you are
not a true hip-hop afficionado.

For the Daily
Once upon a time there was a girl who sold cookies
and pies and breakfast pastries and candy. Her name
was Little Debbie, and every day after school she
would watch her mother meticulously roll out the
dough for each treat and after it was baked, sprinkle
just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar-- not too
much and not too little.

By Jenni Glenn
Weekend, Etc. Editor
No childhood would have been complete without
lunchtime treat trading - that perfect time of the ele-
mentary school day between morning class and recess.
Hands would eagerly reach across those imitation wood
tables that filled the cafeteria when everyone brought
out extra goodies to trade. It was the perfect time to grab
that tasty morsel your friend didn't want but Mom had
refused to buy you at the grocery store, no matter how
hard you begged.
Hostess TIvinkies operated as the central currency in
this sugar-based elementary school economy. Any other
variety of Hostess snack worked almost as well, though,
whether it was a Sno Ball, a Ho Ho or a Fruit Pie.
Hostess spent time on the little things, such as the per-
fectly curling white line of frosting across the top of
each chocolate cupcake, and kids everywhere respected
that attention to detail.
Hostess packed tons of sugar and calories into every

dessert. The resulting hyperactivity met the high expec- I
tations of hungry kids everywhere. A 400-plus calorie
Fruit Pie held almost as much allure as pixie sticks
for the kid who wanted an energy boost.
In addition, Hostess can claim better
spokespeople for its snack cake line than its
competitors. Regardless of that cute little girl
scout's picture gracing the box, Little Debbie - ;
hasn't got anything on Hostess snack cakes in
terms of its spokesperson. As Hostess introduced
its cakes, each one became an animated figure
to star in its own commercial, such as the
infamously sweet cowboy Twinkie the
Kid. It's been twenty years since these -Zz
figures debuted on television, but those characters
are probably still floating around on E-Bay, wait- I
ing to kick some Little Debbie ass. No way that
girl could take on the cast of Hostess snack char-
acters, particularly the double team of the pirate
Captain Cup Cake and his majesty King Ding Dong.
Going beyond its stable of sugary super heroes,

Little Debbie history reads lii

From the first, Little Debbie had appreciated her mother's cooking, and that was
why she shared the treats with everyone she met. From her playmates at school to
the burly construction man who winked at her mother to the big, scary college stu-
dents who were constantly on Latte highs,everyone loved Little Debbie and her
delicious bakery goodies.
However, just when things couldn't be more "peachy keen" along came hostess
with her homemade mini-muffins and chocolate cupcakes. Fortunately for Little
Debbie, folks seemed to prefer the taste that they knew and loved over the stale
products made by I Hostess. Also, by that time Little Debbie had formed an alliance
with her playmate, Mattel.
One day Little Debbie's mother and Hostess' mother became verv ill, and even-
tually they both died. Unlike Little Debbie, Hostess had never spent time in the

kitchen watching her mother

Carmen Tafolla tailors her dramatic
"With Our Very Own Names" drama
to the experiences and perspectives of
each audience. Tafolla selects the par-
ticular "voices" - actually dramatic
monologues - that will compose
the performance and then constructs
their order in such a way as to reach
each audience with her messages of
acceptance, exploration, and celebra-
tion of diversity.
This moving mosaic of barrio voices
tells the struggles, perspectives, and
experiences within schools, universi-
ties, and society.
