TODAY'S COMIC

WEEKEND EDITION

Canada's music scene gains independence

It's called the "Canadian Invasion."

Avril Lavigne, Remy Shand, Nickelback and Diana Krall all have something in common – they're recent multiple Grammy nominees and they're all Canadian.

Royal City, The Hidden Cameras, Hot Hot Heat and The Constantines also have something in common – they've all recently signed international record deals and they're all Canadian.

Most people have heard of our famous, mainstream entertainers, but not the group of indie artists.



From purple to grey: Western marks 125th anniversary

It's official: Western is too old to date your grandma or compete in a triathlon.

Yesterday marked Founder's Day at Western – the commemoration of the day the school was founded 125 years ago, at what is currently Huron University College.



NEWS FOR DUMMIES
Bastards, helicopters and insanity


Much like a microwave dinner of information that can only be described as "yum, yum, yum, yummy," "News for Dummies" is here to offer you a quick fix for information of the world beyond Western.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Film festival sparks controversy

If you thought the Oscars were controversial, they've got nothing on the UWO Film Festival.

This past Monday, the UWO Film Festival, an annual showcase of short films made by Western and Fanshawe College students, released the slate of films selected to be shown during the two-day event to be held Mar. 14-15. The list of nominees has raised some contention among members of the 20-person selection committee, comprised mostly of Western film students.

CAMPUS & CULTURE

Cheers to beers but be prepared

The Germans call it "katzenjammer" – the wailing of cats. The Norwegians call it "jeg har tommermenn" – workmen in my head. The Italians call it "stonato" – out of tune. The Swedes call it "hont i haret" – pain of the roots of my hair.

Despite the various translations of the word "hangover," the feelings associated are universal. Whatever you end up calling it, some Sunday mornings, you can't help but wish you were dead.
