Editorial: Men: Blame brain for drooling over women like food
According to a new study published last week in the journal Neuron, the male brain gets the same kick drooling over beautiful females as it does drooling over a juicy steak or a rail or two of cocaine.

Opinion: Football frenzy, school spirit finally sprout in senior year
A funny thing happens to you as you approach your last semester. Spend three and a half years somewhere and suddenly you find yourself doing strange things like walking around campus just to look at the buildings, swing dancing at the ASU homecoming ball, or singing the fight song in the shower.

Opinion: Fighting firefighters fuel fire of fear
Since the tragedies of Sept. 11, we've all witnessed the impossible. For the first time ever, it seemed that the people of New York were standing together, working toward a unifying goal that surprisingly wasn't focused on baseball.

Opinion: Sewage station sweetens Dakota deal for Dave
This invitation resulted from a column in which I poked fun at North Dakota for wanting to drop the word "North" from its name, so that people will stop thinking of it as a cold, frigid, freezing, subzero, arctic, polar, wintry place characterized by low temperatures.

Cougars swipe win from ASU
It's bad enough that we normally run stories about the ASU football games when they are two days old, but because of the holiday, I find it hard to believe that anyone is still thinking about the Sun Devils' third consecutive loss.

Stingy 'D' not enough to stop WSU
The Sun Devils Pac-10 football slide continued with a 28-16 loss to No. 9 Washington State in front of 47,229 at Sun Devil Stadium Saturday. The Sun Devils got perhaps their best performance of the season on defense, but it was not enough to upset the Cougars.

ASU succumbs after questionable call
The Cougars used the strength of a controversial fumble recovery for a touchdown to slip by the Sun Devils on Saturday night at Sun Devil Stadium. The win pulled Washington State even with Oregon atop the conference standings heading into the season's final week.

Krohn goes down again, Sun Devils go too
When ASU starting quarterback Jeff Krohn starts and finishes a game this season for the Sun Devils, his team has a 4-2 record. When Krohn gets knocked out of a game, however, his team is 0-3.

Cards play it tough, fall 17-10 to Giants
Michael Pittman took the ball on the first play from scrimmage and was smothered by the Giants' Michael Strahan for a 1-yard loss. Following a false start penalty on center Mark Gruttadaria, Pittman once again took hold of the football, this time gaining three yards only to witness quarterback Jake Plummer get sacked on the very next play for an 11-yard loss.

Coughlin's big digs earns ASU a split
Coughlin's 30 digs were a career-high and the most by any Pac-10 performer this season. ASU's lone senior also added 17 kills and hit a much better percentage (.255) than she did the previous night (.069) in a three-game loss to Washington State.

Sun Devils pound EA Sports with 37 from Prewitt
For a traveling basketball team that sounded like a bunch of video game players, the EA Sports Southwest All-Stars gave the Sun Devils about all they could handle.

Johnson wins Cy Young Award
Diamondback ace pitcher and World Series co-MVP Randy Johnson was awarded the National League Cy Young Award today, beating out teammate Curt Schilling with 30 out of 32 first place votes.

In its five years of existence, ASU East has almost tripled in size and offered unique programs to students, and officials said the next five years could bring more successes -- given proper funding.

Devils fall to Cougars, 28-16
The Sun Devils struggled against another conference opponent Saturday night, as they lost their third straight game 28-16 to 11th-ranked Washington State. While WSU (9-1) moves into a tie with Oregon for first place in the PAC-10, the Devils fall to 1-5. There is no longer a realistic chance for them to earn a berth in any bowl game.

Jax Thai Bar good place to start night out
Devils After Dark, a new Web Devil nightlife feature, takes a look at local restaurants, bars, and clubs. This week, Casey Boynton takes a look at the Jax Thai Bar on Mill Avenue.

Stoppard's play is 'The Real Thing'
Tom Stoppard's highly acclaimed "The Real Thing" may not be the same magnitude of "Shakespeare in Love" (also written by Stoppard) but features just as much high-class raunchiness.

Hundreds of people audition to live in 'Real World'
Nearly 1,000 people waited in line for hours at Tempe's Acme Road House Saturday for a chance to be on MTV's The Real World and Road Rules.

cd review
Fans of Trembling Blue Stars' brand of breathy, dreamy pop will likely love the band's latest offering, Alive to Every Smile. Reminiscent of Belle and Sebastian, and at times New Order and the Cure, the songs on their fourth album fail to break new ground, but instead perfect the band's usual formula of Robert Wratten's lyrics of unrequited love backed by pretty, atmospheric melodies.

VH1 winners Flickerstick has run-in with fame
Flickerstick, the survivor of VH1 reality show Bands on the Run will be performing Tuesday at Nita's Hideaway, just one week after the debut of their new album, Welcome Home the Astronauts.

Coen brothers' film captures noir brilliance
Filmed entirely in black and white, there isn't a scene in The Man Who Wasn't There where a character isn't smoking. Joel and Ethan Coen's latest endeavor, a quick follow-up to 2000's O Brother, Where Art Thou?, is an obvious and clever nod to the noir films of the '40s.

Prescott-based Bueno proud of Arizona roots
Prodigal progressive punk to some, Bueno has released two albums: Finding Humor in the Tragedy on Volcom records, and its latest, Nothing New for Trash Like You, recorded independently.

ASU students read by day, rock by night
David Rhodes sat in front of an ASU classroom Tuesday, his hands emerging from tailored shirt cuffs to briskly interpret the professor's words. Later that night, the same hands energetically teased an electric guitar for a crowd at the Yucca Taproom.

Pauly Shore brings "Weasel"-free comedy to Improv
For many of us, MTV played an integral role during those impressionable adolescent years. We watched 13 years old, mouths agape as the VJ Kennedy delivered our much needed angst injection (usually found in the Nine Inch Nails videos) during the segment Alternative Nation.

ASU fraternity hosts cancer research benefit
ASU freshman Andy Margolis couldn't hope for much more. In addition to the high of enrolling in college, he had the added bonus of seeing his family move to Arizona along with him. And a full-ride jazz scholarship and the opportunity to follow in his father's footsteps were the icing on it all.

AZ music scene noteworthy despite image
As a Tempe musician, I often dreamt of the day when my band, The Dying Time, would be interviewed for an article in a music or entertainment magazine. Unfortunately, that day will never come, as we played our last show in October.

Wannabe rockstars, unite!
You've always wanted to be a rock star. And if not, you've at least wanted to marry a rock star, have a rock star's love child or be serenaded by a rock star in front of thousands of adoring fans.
