Opinion: New meal plans lose Points for lack of value for buck

But unlike every other weekend in the Pac-10 season, the 23rd-ranked Sun Devils (25-15, 9-6 Pac-10) weren't able to rebound and win their ninth straight conference series. Instead, they had to settle for their first series loss in Pac-10 play since last April when falling at USC.

Sun Devils win pair in Bay Area

Cal bullpen spoils Hutchinson's gem

Mosca, Strong shine for ASU
Mosca threw an NCAA provisional-qualifying mark of 182 feet, 10 inches in the discus at the Mt. Sac Invitational in Walnut, Calif. The mark was also a career high for the Phoenix Paradise Valley High School product, who bested his previous mark of 175 feet, 11 inches.

Old school skating comes alive with 'Dogtown'
The rugged story of skateboarding's original urban assault team, which is given revered attention in the gnarly documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, was almost left untold.

Status woe
Penn Roullier took out his business card, placed it on top of the glass table positioned in front of the cheetah-print couch we lounged upon, and with the flick of his wrist, opened the gate into a world of debauchery and drunkenness, status and silicone.

Gay pride festival features first ASU gay fraternity
Dottie, in drag, who was crowned Miss Gay Pride 2002, sashayed the grounds, greeting her fans in a red mini-dress, platform shoes and extra-long black eyelashes, from beneath a yellow sun umbrella.

Slow Poke punk more than its piercings
The local group Slow Poke can best be described as a Blink 182 in training. Something tells me they may even be prone to getting naked at shows, but who knows? You'll have to find that one out for yourself.

Eclectic budding Valley band begs for wontons
Ask local band Pomagic what they want out of life and each of its four members will give you a different answer. Individually, they want cheese-crisps, groupies, a lifetime supply of Mary Kay products and pineapple wontons, but as a group, they have one answer in common.

Lisa Loeb having her cake, and pie, and eating it too
Her new album Cake and Pie has more of a rocking guitar sound but never loses Loeb's uniquely mellow style, soothing voice or musical meanings.

Hometown heroes return after eating up the world

Puppet man more than some wood and a hand
Boys and dolls don't typically mix. But that wasn't the case for ventriloquist and comedian Jeff Dunham, who breathed life into a few puppets when he was a child.

Very important bowwow wowed by VIP rooms
Some of you might recognize me from my previous column in this fine quality of a magazine (which I make a point never to aim my urine on), or from such adult canine cinema classics as Doggie Does Dallas and All Dogs Cum to Heaven.
