Leftovers: The aftermath of Thanksgiving
makes lazy and starving university students truly thankful,
as moms and dads have tupperwared and ziplocked that fowl carcass
to be enjoyed over and over for the rest of the month. Turkey-wiches,
turkey soup, turkey stir-fry, turkey pitas... a bird has never
been in so many positions.
OutKast — Speakerboxxx/The Love Below: Funkmasters Andre
3000 and Big Boi bring in the noise and bring in the funk with
the best double record since the Beatles’ White album.
But rest assured, nothing about this collection is white — read:
Timberlake-fied — and OutKast’s grooves are 100
per cent original.
Roy attacked by Montecore: Years of “training” their “pets” was
destined to turn into disaster. Sure, no one deserves to be
attacked by a gigantic white tiger, but we guess Montecore
was fed up with jumping through rings of fire and doing other
stupid shit to the delight of spectacle-starved audiences.
And admit it — you too, would go on a mauling spree if
you had to play with Siegfried and Roy all day.
Ladybugs: Ladybugs? More like bitchbugs.
They try to look all pretty with their bright red bodies decorated
with black polka dots, but these little bitches are invading
our campus, our home, our clothes and our hair. One of these
critters even invaded an A&E editor’s cup of water.
That Purple Thing: You’ve seen the balloon-like distraction
which reads “University Community Centre Shops and Services.” The
vibrant, tacky welcome to the now self-proclaimed shopping
mall bursts through the otherwise bleak Concrete Beach. However,
it sticks out in a not-so-flattering way among the surrounding
architecture. Maybe Western needs to understand that not everything
needs to coincide with the school colour.
Orange Chocolate: It’s sick. Ever since Terry and his
damn Chocolate Oranges broke into the chocolate industry, we’ve
seen copycats galore. Currently on display are Aero Orange
Chocolate bars and Orange Smarties. Apparently, if you laid
each chocolate piece end to end from every Terry’s Chocolate
Orange made each week, they would stretch 745 miles.
