'Chainsaw Massacre' remake too bloody to be stylish
Even if you haven't seen the original TCM, and hadn't heard of it before now, you can probably guess the plot: kids meet crazy guy with chainsaw, then get killed by crazy guy with chainsaw.

Review: 'Rugby 2004:' Steep learning curve but addictive
If looking for something that combines the confusion of psychedelic drug use with the violence of football, look no further than EA Sports Rugby 2004. Coming from a person who once actually played the game of rugby, this game is about as easy to pick up as a Calc II.

Review: GBA 'Super Mario 3' an improved blast from the past
There are many things in the world that are just good, but what happens when something good becomes something great? What words do you use to describe such a phenomenon? Sure, staunch linguists would probably bring up the words "improvement," "enhancement," "upgrade," "advance," "innovation," "development," and "progress" - but I don't need all those fancy words.

Belle & Sebastian's 'Dear Catastrophe Waitress' ironic
This album injects me with guilt for giving up the trombone. Glasgow's ambitious independent rock band continues to dish out their ironic style marked with gleeful chords and vocals contrasted with dark lyrics.

Girl Scouts' new spinoff shallow
The new generation of teen and preteen girls isn't interested in community service and leadership. Troop gardening projects are out, and health and makeovers are in. At least that's what Girl Scouts spinoff Studio 2B says.

Democrats' address to Arabs a cautious beginning
Fearful of political reprisal from the pro-Israeli lobbies in Washington, politicians have avoided their Arab-American constituencies. Were it not for Patriot Act anxiety, the Democrats might have bowed out as well.

Point: Party ordinance unfairly targets college renters
In less than a month, the City Council will pass unanimously an ordinance that could all but eliminate house parties in Tempe. Of course, the Council refuses to admit that the new ordinance is targeting college students.

Counterpoint: Homeowners deserve a good night's sleep
You've got to fight for your right to party. But Tempe residents also have the right to fight for their peace and quiet. Bravo to Tempe residents who are in favor of tightening the reins of out-of-control partygoers.

On the Web: Dave Barry
I spent two hours reading about Dave Barry on the Internet, and all I got is this lousy column. For those of you not familiar with his work, Barry is sort of the Lord of the Everyman, with an emphasis in Cheez-its.

Football: D-Hag completes the air attack
Derek Hagan has epitomized the ASU football team's offense this season: dropping balls and playing sluggishly early in the season and then racking up yards that would keep any defensive coordinator up at night.

When I made the trip to cover ASU's football game against North Carolina last weekend, I decided to attend the Midnight Madness of the UNC basketball team, one of the most storied college hoops programs.

Devil Dish: Only a Cardinals win can stop beard growth
Ever since the Cardinals' last win, a miraculous victory on over the Green Bay Packers, I have not shaved my goatee and will continue to let it go until the Cardinals' next win. You see, facial hair isn't exactly my thing.
