The Michigan Daily: Hi, is Kevin
Random: No he's not.
TMD: Who is this?
R: This is Jonas.
TMD: Hi Jonas, I'm a writer from
The Michigan Daily. How would you
like to take part in the Random Student
TMD: So, what were you doing when
R: I actually just got back from work
TMD: And what do you do?
R: I'm a student technical writer at the
TMD: Interesting. What do you
prefer on a cold winter's day, sex or
TMD: When is the last time you
TMD: Was it, a) mind blowing, b)
great, c) so-so, d) mind-numbing, or e)
you don't remember?
R: Mind blowing.
TMD: Okay now we are going to do
some free association. So I'll say a word,
and you tell me the first thing that comes
TMD: First word is banana.
R: Hot dog. I see what you're
TMD: And you're fighting it pretty
Next word is a French baguette.
R: I don't know what that is.
TMD: A large, long loaf of bread.
R: The Eiffel Tower
TMD: Strangely enough, that was my
next one. So, the Eiffel Tower.
R: Penis. There.
TMD: Is it a turn on to watch a girl eat
R: Depends on how they're eating it.
As long as there's no biting.
TMD: What's the craziest place you
would ever think to have sex?
R: The White House. That'd be
TMD: How many people do you
actually think have had sex in the Grad
Library, in the Stacks?
R: What time frame?
TMD: Let's say the last five years.
R: Twenty-four. I think it'd be a pretty
TMD: Do you think that we are too
prudish about sex in this country?
R: Um, I don't think so.
TMD: Are American girls easy?
R: I think so.
TMD: What is the best cereal to
incorporate into sex?
R: Lucky Charms.
TMD: What is the worst cereal to
incorporate into sex?
R: Frosted Flakes. -
TMD: Do you think that your parents
still rock the bed springs?
TMD: What's a good after-sex
TMD: How much do you hate
R: I've been trained to like it now.
TMD: What's the strangest thing
that's ever been said while you were in
the middle of sex?
R: That's a tough one. I can't even
remember anything. Nothing, can't think
of anything. Everything kind of fits.
TMD: Do you find it really strange
that barnyard pornography is actually
enjoyed by some people?
R: Yeah. Pretty freaky.
TMD: You don't fall into that catego-
ry, do you?
R: No I do not.
TMD: Just checking. Do you ever get
the feeling that the U of M clock tower is
R: Phallic? What does that mean?
TMD: Representing the male
R: Not really.
TMD: Sometimes big buildings, you
know. Have you ever gotten road head?
TMD: How were you able to drive?
R: Just fine. No seatbelt.
TMD: Does breast size matter?
R: A bit. I think it's overrated, but it
TMD: Does penis size matter?
TMD: Who has the better sex organ,
the man or woman?
TMD: Who has the stronger libido?
TMD: Yeah, like the sex drive.
R: Man. Hands down.
TMD: Is it unfair that women can
repeatedly reach orgasm and never have
to stop for a little rest?
R: Who says it's only women?
TMD: Uh huh ... How many women
do you think Mick Jagger has slept with?
R: I have no clue. In his lifetime, more
than a hundred. I don't know.
TMD: Now, if he weren't a ridicu-
lously famous and pretty brilliant
rock star, and just an ugly dude, how
many women would he have slept
with. Take away coolness-factor-
M: So now he's just an ordinary guy?
TMD: Yup. Just an ordinary ugly guy.
TMD: Are animals sexy when
TMD: Do you think animals feel
anything when they have sex, or is it
TMD: Is that the proof scientists have
been searching for that man is the great-
est species on earth?
TMD: Do you know what
TMD: What are they?
R: They are chemical signals that
are given off and, depending on the
type of signal, you get different
reactions. Sex pheromones get peo-
TMD: Do you believe they work?
TMD: Have you ever taken naked
pictures of a girlfriend?
TMD: Have you ever let naked pic-
tures be taken of you?
TMD: Say you had taken naked
pictures of your girlfriend, and then
she dumped your ass. Would you
'TMD: What's your favorite color?
TMD: All right. Thanks a lot. This
will be in Thursday's paper.

all over the bathroom and feel good
about it At Showcase: 1:20,4:00,6:35,
9:10, 11:45 (Fri. and Sat) 5 stars
Adaptation As a matter of princi-
ple, this is an avoider for riday
That is, of course, unless you would
p refer to watch an aging Meryl
Streep, a toothless Chris Cooper,
and two fat, bald Nicholas Cages,
one of which has a habit of tickling
his pickle not in the metaphorical
sense. At Madstone: 1:20, 3:50,
7:20, 9:45 5 stars
Biker Boyz A movie about guys
who love their mystical motorcy-
cles, and the women who love
them ... and the men they want to
be like ... and Rufio. At Showcase:

12:40 (Fri. and Sat.) 1.5 stars
Bowling for Columbine
Definitely the movie for lovers in
full bloom. If your special someone
likes guns and haircuts, this one's
for you. At Madstone: 1:10, 3:40,
Catch Me if You Can Or Great
ways to get chicks to pay you to have

Chicago "How to Shoot a Guy and

Confessions of a Dangerous
MindThe inspiration for crap like

there would be some kind of end-
in for every damned episode!
What a crock. At Showcase: 10:00,
12:20 (Fri. and Sat.) 4 stars
Darkness Falls Not a date movie,
not even close. Stay away or it'll ruin
all possible future fantasy enactments

know that would put a damper on
Valentine's Day. At Showcase: 5:50,
10:30, 12:35 (Fri.and Sat) 1.5 stars
Deliver Us from Eva Could be
worse ... It could be something like

tainment! At Showcase: 1:35, 3:40,

roo. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:10, 4:05,
6:00, 8:00 0 stars
The Lord of the Rings: The
Two Towers A great movie for any
and all occasions. It's a love story and a
little bit of Lembas. At Showcase: 1:10,
4:40, 8:10, 11:35 (Fri. and Sat.) 5 stars
The Recruit Solid return for Al
Pacino. Bobby D should be taking
notes or MarIon Brando may have a
replacement. At Madstone: 1:10,

Beggar's Opera: Bawdy,
biting aind beautitul
Bound for the gallows, an unrepentent Captain MacHeath declares: "Iflaws
were made for ev'ry degree...I wonder I hadn't better company upon Tyburn
Tree!" A strong sentiment in 1728, but no less true today, as opponents of capital
punishment will agree.
The show is laden with social commentary such as this, often attached to a gor-
geous melody. This is a unique musical satire, for it is actually a play with songs
crafted from folk tunes of the day. John Gay, an English writer, had been snubbed
for political office, and decided to bring down his critics with a play. Not a musi-
cian, he borrowed popular melodies for his lyrics. The result was an immediate
smash, for all his tunes were already favorites. His characters- thieves, rogues and
prostitutes such as MacHeath, Polly Peachum and Jenny Diver- also became world
