Greeks raise money for diabetes foundation
Nine fraternities and a sorority came together in brotherly love in order to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation this past weekend. The Alpha Gamma Delta sorority invited the fraternities to their annual philanthropy that included a jumping contest last Thursday and an Ultimate Frisbee tournament on Saturday.

Music Review
It must be one laugh after the other being a member of Harvette's inner circle. It's obvious the LA-based trio likes poking fun at just about everything, including themselves, as evidenced on the 14-track, self-titled debut.

Delhi Palace a feast for the palate
Dining at an Indian restaurant is an adventure that most of us have yet to embark on. The thought of eating dishes with hard-to-pronounce names and ingredients that we've often never heard of can be a bit daunting.

One-toothed trainman tells all in New York
John likes the ladies, the doughnuts and buying things by the dozen. On top of that, he likes to wobble his tongue around his one remaining tooth that sticks out right in the center of his bottom gumline. If that doesn't qualify him for a story, what could?

Sex & media go toe-to-toe: How does the media influence the choice to be chaste?
It's the oldest trick in the book. Amidst the barrage of ads and television shows, movies, radio commercials and billboards, there is no better marketing tool than sex. It's eye catching and demands attention, but most importantly, it sells.

Imagine the art of John Lennon
The two of them possess a sincere and intense love for John Lennon and his art. Both traveled across the Pacific Ocean in the name of his legacy: one to celebrate Lennon's life and work, the other to emulate his messages of unconditional love and peace through his own life.

It's all play time for Phantom Planet
Even though they have a new album, The Guest, out on Epic Records, and their single "California" is garnering a lot of radio attention, the group seems content trying to out-clown each other and has a hard time being serious, especially during an interview with State Press Magazine.

'Storytelling' shocking but not telling
Todd Solondz, the maverick indie director who a few years ago caused a splash with the Sundance hit Welcome to the Dollhouse and followed it up with the equally abrasive Happiness, is back with a new film, Storytelling.

Geeks win out in life, on Comedy Central
I'm so geeky that I had nothing better to do on Friday night than visit, answer the "daily geek challenge" and engage in computer-assisted, asocial conversations with some of my fellow misfits.

Mute whiney bitch speaks to sell 'Jay and Silent Bob'
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was released on DVD Tuesday, but this high-budget, star-studded movie is a far cry from the director's first movie, Clerks, released at the Sundance Film Festival in 1994. That movie was made with a $27,000 budget fronted by parents and credit card advances.

No Vatos needed to make Barcena a funnyman
After one of Willie Barcena's many performances on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno pulled the comic aside and confided in him. "He said I reminded him of when he was my age," recalls Barcena, who will be headlining at the Tempe Improv this weekend. "He said I was just a comedian."

Even cartoon sperm can't corrupt this coochie
As a curious 12-year-old with insomnia and a rising libido, I was glued to the late-night "informational" show, alternating my jaw-dropping gapes with paranoid sideways glances down the hall where my parents slept silently (in separate beds).
