Music Review
The Eels are more commonly known as "the band that sings that one song." That one song usually refers to "Novocaine for the Soul," "My Beloved Monster" or "Mr. E's Beautiful Blues."

'Blade II': Sequel to vampire thrasher bites
Blade II is sort of a difficult movie to review. On the one hand, it's really not very good. On the other hand, as an example of the popular horror/vampire/slasher/action/ zombie genre, it's better than a lot of its contemporaries.

Tale of boy and alien still tear-jerking
It's been a good week for rekindling my old romance with Steven Spielberg. I caught his Raiders of the Lost Ark on the tube the other night and was stirringly reminded of that film's greatness.

Folds finds new niche with solo act
The morning after I went to Ben Folds' sold out show at the Cajun House last week, my feet hurt, my back ached and I had a bloody nose. Even though I felt like I had been in a street fight, the only thing I could think about was what an amazing show I had seen the night before.

Bus ride and beavers break a small town spirit
It's amazing how 24 hours can change your life. I hopped on a bus to follow local punk band Sixth Year Senior to Los Angeles last weekend (see p. 7), and in the span of two sunrises, I learned what I hated and loved about myself.
