The Raw Deahl: Open mikes, open minds
As far as talent went, none of them had any. I can't remember any of their names, but their horrible slit-my-wrists singing will probably haunt me forever.

Things forgotten after Sept. 11
Something horrible and sobering happened to our country but that does not mean the rest of the wheels stop turning. We should heed the words of Creedence Clearwater Revival when they sang, "big wheel keep on turning."

Fight for your right to launder
The dorm laundry room, a communal space subject to all sorts of socially interactive hi-jinks, shouldn't be converted into an online shopping center.

Leaving his baseball glove behind
I stand in front of a church adjacent to the 8-story hole in the ground that was the World Trade Center. There in front of me, hanging on the fence amid hundreds of shirts, flags and banners, is a child's baseball glove.

Baseball: All-American pitcher transfers to ASU

ASU awaits challenges of Pac-10
Returning from South Carolina with a 2-1 record was an accomplishment for the ASU volleyball team, but its toughest tests still lie ahead in the Pac-10. ASU junior outside hitter Juliana Escobar turned heads last weekend with 58 kills and 15 aces. Although she didn't come close to breaking the team-high of last season (28), which was set by former Sun Devil Jami Coughlin.

Golf: Farr-Kaye returns to alma mater
The former Sun Devil standout, Missy Farr-Kaye, has been hired as an assistant, head coach Melissa McNamara announced Wednesday.

Football: Homecoming for Crawford
For ASU junior left tackle Regis Crawford, Saturday's game at San Diego State will present a lot more than an opportunity to win for the third straight week. It will provide him with a chance to return to his old town of San Diego and play in front of a host of family and friends.

Islam explained to mosque visitors
While many Americans spent Sept. 11 remembering the past, a select few took steps towards understanding the future of America's diverse Islamic community.

ASU Police reported several incidents Wednesday, including one in which two members of a fraternity were assaulted with rocks.

Four on-campus buildings received bomb threats Wednesday, leaving hundreds of students waiting behind yellow police tape on a day already tense from the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

'Q' demonstrates for human rights
In the midst of bomb threats Wednesday, members of a social and political awareness organization called "Q" held a demonstration in front of the Memorial Union.

Release the robots
You know that dream where you're giving a speech and you look down to realize you're literally baring all? Well, that's kind of what Army of Robots vocalist and guitarist Lawrence Hearn has been going through lately.

SPM: Rock 'n' Rollins
In the 120-minute one-man play, Cancer Man, ASU theater student Luke Krueger will turn the stage into his own personal interpretation of Henry Rollins' book, Get in the Van, which details his days of touring.

SPM: Tune-up masters
According to local open-mike performers, being nervous is a part of the show. But they also agree that when the music is right, it's all worth it.

Flash of dance
Two years ago, after receiving a degree in dance from James Madison University in Virginia, Tara Mullins packed up her things and headed west to study at one of the nation's top-10 graduate schools for dance.

Taking aim
The student-run marksmanship club, the Gun Devils, gives students, staff and faculty a chance to hone their shooting skills, meet new people and let off some steam during the semester.

New Hot Guys on the Block
Hot Guy Band, which will mark its one-year anniversary in October, first formed after Ging and Abbott hooked up musically. Once a solid formation was in place, they released their debut album, Let's Do Coke in the Bathroom, which quickly became the No. 1 local seller at Zia Records for three weeks in a row.

Welcome Matt
Matt Sharp has been a real-life Where's Waldo. He left Weezer after their Pinkerton Album and devoted himself fully to his other band, The Rentals. After making two albums with them, he practically disappeared off the face of the Earth by moving to Leipers Fork, Tenn., a small town with only one restaurant on the outskirts of Nashville.

Food for thought
In Mostly Martha, the new German-language comedy from writer/director Sandra Nettlebeck, Martha cooks. It's what she loves. It is, almost exclusively, how she defines herself.

Beyond skin deep
Not only did Skins director Chris Eyre honor the Native Americans in his new movie by filming on their reservation, but now he's hand delivering the film with a movie theater to their doorsteps.

Down on the farm
Joshua Tree, Calif., with its hot, arid summers might not be the most desirable place in the nation to reside. But for some reason, it's the perfect place for alt-country singer/songwriter Victoria Williams' home and garden - along with her pseudo-farm/ranch that includes a pair of donkeys, a trio of dogs and some ducks.
