ROOMMATE OF RANDOM: Hello?
TE MICHIGAN DAILY: Hi Lauren?
ROR: Hang on.
TMD: Hi, Lauren?
TMD: Hey Lauren ... hang on one
(To the rest of the Daily Arts staff)
SHUT UP! I'm trying to do the random!
(Back to Random.)So Lauren, you've
been selected to be the Halloween edi-
tion of the Random Student Interview
for The Michigan Daily. Are you game?
R: (Pause) OK.
TMD: What are you dressing up as
R: Yeah, but I'm not sure as what.
TMD: OK, what are the options, I'll
help you pick.
R: (Checks with roommate.) We don't
TMD: Nothing? Really getting down
to the wire here.
TMD: You don't have to apologize to
me. Its not my Halloween that's gonna be
ruined. You have to have some idea.
TMD: OK, we'll keep that in the
maybe pile. What was your favorite cos-
tume from Halloweens past?
R: Last year I was a pumpkin.
TMD: Like a scary pumpkin or a nice
R: A nice one.
TMD: Was there ever something you
wanted to be really badly when you were
a kid but your mom wouldn't let you
dress up as that?
R: My mom? No, but I wanted to be
TMD: Why don't you dress up as
Madonna this year?
R: That's what I'm gonna do.
TMD: Which is a worse costume for
this year: R. Kelly or Kobe Byrant?
R: R. Kelly.
TMD: Cause he'd pee on people,
TMD: That's no good. There's a lot of
talk of sexy girl costumes but what about
the guys? What can a guy dress up as to
drive the ladies nuts?
R: (Asks roommate and disappears)
TMD: Hey no help! This about you.
R: Captain Morgan and you can give
TMD: Girls love alcohol and pirates.
Two birds, one stone. Which is the worse
treat, pennies or black licorice?
R: Black licorices.
TMD: Trick of choice: Eggs, toilet
paper or flaming bag of poop?
R: (Laughs) Eggs. They're gross.
TMD: Do you like scary movies?
TMD: No? Why not?
R: They're scary.
TMD: What's the worst scary movie
for you, one that's haunted you for years
and you have nightmares about?
R: "Silence of the Lambs."
TMD: Yeah, I hate that too. Did you
ever make it all the way through?
TMD: Really, the end is the scariest
part. Do you believe in ghosts?
TMD: Yeah? Ever had a run in with
R: Yeah at my backyard in Miami.
TMD: There's ghosts in Miami? I did-
n't know that. What happened?
R: Umm ... I went back inside.
TMD: You just ran back inside? What
was the apparition doing?
R: I'm not going to lie. I wasn't sober.
TMD: You'd been drinking and you
saw a ghost ...
R: It was in a tree.
TMD: Did you ever think it might
have been a squirrel?
R: No, never thought that.
TMD: What did it look like?
R: I can't describe it. It was trippy shit.
TMD: Do you believe in vampires?
R: No, I don't believe in vampires.
R: (Laughs) No.
R: No, but my friend thinks she was
TMD: But you don't believe her?
TMD: Umm ... just Floridian tree
ghosts. So who would win in a fight
between King Kong and Godzilla?
TMD: Freddy or Jason?
TMD: Dracula or Frankenstein?
TMD: "Monster Mash" or
R: Like Michael Jackson? "Thriller."
TMD: Creature from the Black
Lagoon or Cookie Monster.
R: Cookie Monster.
TMD: Ann Coulter or the Wolfman?
TMD: Don't worry it about. Ah, how
do you kill a zombie?
R: He's ... dead.
TMD: Very good, it was a trick ques-
tion. How do you stop a zombie?
R: You ... don't.
TMD: Cut off the head. Remember,
that will save your life. Anyways, have
you ever been to a haunted house?
R: Yeah. It was scary. They had shit
jumping out of secret places.
TMD: What kind of shit?
R: Like people.
TMD: Yeah, people can be pretty shit-
ty. Who was Charlie Brown wanting for
R: His lover?
TMD: No ...
R: Oh, his dog Snoopy!
TMD: No, no the Great Pumpkin.
Missed that one, Lauren. Minus five
R: Oh God.
TMD: OK, apple bobbing etiquette
TMD: If you go down for an apple
and somebody decides to pants you and
then pushes you into the water, then
gets everybody in your whole third
grade class to turn around and point
and laugh and they all start calling you
"Scotty Scott No-Pants" for the next
ten years ... is it OK to still be angry
R: Ummm ... no you should get
TMD: OK, I'll tell my friend. It
didn't happen to me it happened to a
friend, he's still bitter about it ---
still cries ... OK, well thanks for
your help Lauren. Happy

Bollywood/Hollywood Somebody cott any Meg Ryan film that isn't a
finally has the sense to make a decent romantic comedy. She's tormented
musical about a whore. It's about us for so long with her useless
damn time. At Madstone: 1:20, 5:35, sapfests, and now she wants out?
7:40. Not so fast, Me ggy. At Showcase:
Noon, 2:30, 5:00, 7:35, 10:10,
In the Cut People ought to boy- 12:30 AM (Fri and Sat)

We l, it's not anymore. Michig
Theater: 5:00, 7:00, 9:00.
Good Boy! Whatever happened to
"Homeboys from Outer Space" and
all the other halfway decent extrater-
restrial film and television of yester-
year? Good boy's don't make bad
movies, therfore this dog is not a
good boy. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:35,
4:35, 6:35, 8:30.
Intolerable Cruelty George
Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones
are two fine looking people. I mean,
just one look at her curvaceous hips
and appetizing, hourglass frame will
uhh, sorry; ot off track there.
Where was I? Oh yes, "Intolerable
Cruelty" ... At Showcase: 12:55,
3:05, 5:20, 8:00, 10:05, 12:25 AM
(Fri and Sat) At Madstone: 3:25.
Kill Bill: Volume 1 Do you know
why there's a sign above Quentin
Tarantino's garage that says,
"Amazing filmmaker?" Because
making amazing films, especially
those about ninlas, is his business.
And for him, business is good. At
Showcase: 12:10, 1:40, 2:35, 4:20,
4:55, 6:50, 7:20, 9:10, 9:40,
11:25, 11:55 At Madstone: 1:00,
2:00, 4:30, 5:00, 7:00, 7:45, 9:30,
Lost in Translation It's a Bill
Murray comedy salad with Asian
dressing and sounds like a delicious
treat. OK, that was an inane and
hopeless metaphor. Go see it any-
way. Seriously, you will be glad you
did. At Showcase: 1:00, 7:55.
Mystic River The moral of the
story: Next time you decide to go
pedophile hunting, try to do it on a
night other than the one when your
childhood friend's daughter is mur-
dered. It'll save everyone a lot of
hassle. Wait did I just give everything
away? At Showcase: 12:50, 1:20,
3:40, 4:10, 6:40, 7:10, 9:35, 10:05,
12:20 At Madstone: 1:30, 4:15,
Night of the Living Dead As the
inimitable Beavis would probably
say, "Zombies kick ass." This is the
first major zombie movie. Logic fol-
lows that this ought to kick ass, too.
At Madstone: 10:30.
Out of Time You have to wonder
sometimes whether Denzel is really
a good actor or if he just scares the
piss out of people to the point where
they say they lke him. Personally, I
think it is the second, but that's lust
me. At Showcase: 1:00, 3:20 5:30,
7:45, 10:15, 12:20 (Fri and tat) At
Madstone: 1:25, 3:45, 7:25, 9:45.
Radio This movie was fine when it
was called "Rudy" and the makers
didn't try to rack up extra sympathy
points by giving the main character
a mental handicap. But Ed Harris is
still very cool. At Showcase: Noon,
12:30, 2:20, 2:50, 4:35, 5:05, 6:55,
7:25, 9:20, 9:50, 11:40, 12:10 a.m.
(Fri and Sat) At Madstone: 1:00,
3:10, 5:20, 7:30, 9:45.
Grisham stories that are all about the
intrigues of law in the South but
completely inaccurate depictions of
the legal system itself, then, brother,
you're in the right place. Or if you
like Gene Hackman movies. At
Showcase: 1:30, 4:00, 6:30, 9:05,
11:35. At Madstone: 1:00, 3:35,
Scary Movie 3 This one is a substan-
tial improvement on the second "Scary
Movie." It's too bad, though, that it
took three movies for the makers to
figure out that the Wayans brothers
were ruining their movies. At
Showcase: 12:15 AM, 12:15, 12:45,
1:15, 1:45, 2:15, 2:45, 3:15, 3:45,4:15,
4:45, 5:15, 5:45, 6:15, 6:45, 7:15,
7:45, 8:15, 8:45, 9:15, 9:45, 10:15,
10:45, 11:15, 11:45 At Madstone:
1:15, 3:20, 5:25, 7:30, 9:35.
The School of Rock Jack Black is
a damn fine comedian for making
such a crappy plot good. All hail the
Tenacious D front man. Let us sing
him praise. This is not the reatest
movie in the world, but a tribute. At
Showcase: 12:10, 12:40, 2:40, 3:10,
5:00, 7:25, 9:45, 11:55.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
While we're at it, why don't we just
remake "Halloween, "The Exorcist"
and every other worthwhile horror
movie of the past four decades into
a worthless teeny-bop piece of crapp.
Or, maybe we won't, you decide. At
Showcase: 12:50, 1:20, 3:00, 3:30,
5:20, 5:50, 7:40, 8:10, 9:55, 10:25,
Midnight, 12:30 AM (Fri and Sat)
Under the Tuscan Sun If you think
seeing the Tuscan landscape is worth
eight and a quarter, then, by all
means, go see this. Otherwise, spare
yourself the anguish. I have heard
that the real Tuscan landscape is a
sight to behold, if you have the
means, I highly recommend you do
check it out for yourself. At
Madstone: 1:05, 3:20,5:30, 7:45.
Underworld It's amazing how
appealing "Matrix" rip-off action
sequences and heavy metal music
are. It sometimes makes you think
you're in the wrong business. But
werewolves and vampires are still
totally sweet, so the movie isn't a com-
plete wash. At Showcase: 12:40 a.m.
Veronica Guerin What?!? A Jerry
Bruckheimer movie that's a charac-
ter study? And it doesn't have a
soundtrack headlined by P-Did and
(insert shitty rock band here)? Nah,
sounds too good to be true. Plus,
director Joel Schumacher ruined the
"Batman" series. Damn him. At
Showcase: 10:25, 12:35.
Wonderland Tonight on "E! True
Hollywood Story:" Johnny Wadd
Holmes had it all: a career atop the
porno industry, great smack ped-
dling friends, and a killer quaff -
until he decided to rip off a big
name drug dealer and got shanked
for it. At Showcase: 12:35, 3:05,
5:25, 7:40, 10:05, 12:25.
