October 11, 2001

Tori Amos gets Strange(r) - The pianist and chanteuse embarks on adventures in male music

October 11, 2001

In the past, there have been certain foods which, upon first taste, I found positively unpalatable. But after forcing myself to try them more and more, the experience improved until I came to a point where I absolutely loved them, even craving them at times. The same can be said about the new Tori Amos album, Strange Little Girls (Atlantic). When, hearing the CD through for the first time, I wasn't overwhelmed by the usual, orgasmic delight that Amos's music tends to evoke from me: I was nearly ready to dismiss it as a failure. However, after taking a week's break from it and giving it another try, I predict that Strange Little Girls won't be leaving my CD changer anytime soon.


When JHU goes from just being a residence to home - A Necessary Ambiguity

October 11, 2001

What is a home? The word has been defined in many ways throughout the years. For myself, a home has always been the place and feeling of where one resides. Like we all do here at college, I have referred to my home as the state and town I came from. In a sense, Johns Hopkins has only been my temporary residence. However, last weekend many of my perspectives changed.

Small kitchen solutions

October 11, 2001

Think you have a small kitchen? Well, let me tell you about mine: It's minuscule. My bathroom is bigger. I think one of my closets is, as well. So, now what? You have 30 of your nearest and dearest coming in 20 minutes and. okay. Stop there. You aren't going to be entertaining a houseful of people. You're in college. The most you'll be doing is having a potluck or friends over for beer and a pizza. Nevertheless, you still need space and I'm here to tell you what works in consolidating your kitchen.

Who doesn't like Mick's? - Balto's finest Irish pub features rockin' music, plenty o' stout

October 11, 2001

Few would dispute Mick O'Shea's status as Baltimore's premier Irish bar. Outside, harps and shamrocks adorn the facade, while inside, a large mural of Ireland lurks behind the bar, and various items of Irish memorabilia (including a copy of the 1916 proclamation of the Irish Republic on the occasion of the Easter Rising) are displayed on the walls. If you ever wanted to "Know Your Hurling" (not the activity of times indulged in after visiting a few bars, but rather the Irish sport, similar to field hockey but involving balancing the ball on the end of one's stick and a certain amount of violence), this is the place to be.
