HIS pACkAgE lOOkS lIkE THIS:

I like performances that merge the past and present in imaginative ways.

about the show is the visual aesthetic and
costume design. Women wear brightly
patterned dresses belted at the empire
waist, accented with gold brooches or
pearls. Their coiffed hair is Aqua Netted
into place, sweeping across their high
cheekbones. The look is finished off
with mary jane patent leather heels and
stockings that seem to exist only for their
removal by the hands of handsome men.
The men — Draper included — stick to
classic cuts accented with colored pocket
squares or sleek skinny ties. As work
(of many kinds) calls, the suit remains
the staple. Men swing jackets over their
broad shoulders as they exit the office, or
unbutton dress shirts as they bed married
women. Call it provocative if you will, but
Mad Men combines elements of drama
as smoothly as a bartender makes your
favorite cocktail.
If you’re intrigued by the drinking,
working and sleeping around in Mad Men,
read Molly’s story on page 11 for more.
Although I’m sure there will be a few
disagreements ahead in my relationship
— being late for our Sunday night dates,
cheating with other shows etc., I’m
convinced we can make this one last. It’s
been a good four years thus far, and if a
new show does come into the picture, at
least I can look back and say that Mad
Men was the best I’ve ever had.

I never intended for it to be this way.
I was just a simple girl. I got caught up in
the romance and glamour. I was attracted
immediately — to his strength, style and
confidence. every time we were together
it felt like we were the only two people in
the world. It all happened so fast, and when
we had to part, it was unbearable. I have to
wait a whole week for him to return every
Sunday night at 9 p.m. on AMC.
My love affair is with Mad Men, the
acclaimed emmy-winning drama that follows
Don Draper, an advertising executive in the
1960s. Set on sparkling Madison Avenue, the
show highlights the work and sex lives of the
advertising staff of Draper’s company. Now
in its fourth season, the show’s drama has
taken many turns through the real history
of the 1960s. And if you’re not interested
in the educational factors, you can find
entertainment in the constantly changing
relationships of the cast.
Though Draper does fit my tall, dark
and handsome prototype, what I love most

Q. A lot of people have asked about my musical
tastes to set the mood. While some were ask-
ing who Sade is (pronounced shah-DAY), oth-
ers were asking about alternate songs I would
use. So this week I decided to let you in on the
ultimate songs to “get intimate to.”
Mike Anderson, Dellwood, Minn. graduate stu-
dent, is the host of Kansas in Heat, a talk show
about sex and relationships that airs Wednesdays
at 11 p.m. on KJHK, 90.7fm and at kjhk.org.

> Tackle the sticky world of relationships.
a. Prince: Prince’s music is technically
outlawed in 12 states and Puerto rico because
it is too sexy. get ready to purify yourself in
the waters of Lake Minnetonka and put on
some, “Do Me Baby,” “International Lover,”
“Adore,” or, my favorite, “satisfed.”
Al Green: The reverend Al green has been
preaching love-making since the ‘70s. his
sexual venom potency rivals that of any. Try
“Call Me,” “you Ought To Be With Me,” and,
of course, “Let’s stay Together.”
Barry White: It sounds cheesy and
overdone, but all of his music is perfect for
setting the mood.
Peaches: some of her songs are too racy
to type in this column — but play those. I
would also recommend “Downtown.”
The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack:
This is outside of the box, but stay with me.
The album’s rhythm is perfect for an intimate
night. It builds to a climax better than most
albums. you may think I’m crazy, but Daniel
Day Lewis has always done me right.

interests & hobbies: I’m a total nerd.
I read a lot and play video games, but I’m
also outdoorsy. I bike to class — I can’t stay
indoors for too long or I get restless and
crazy. I also like working with my hands —
that can mean anything from arts and crafts
to massages.
faVorite QUote: “Life is like a box of
chocolates, you never know what you’re
going to get.” — Forrest gump. Although
I’m probably being biased as I just watched
Forrest Gump last night.
what YoU Look for in a Partner: I don’t
date frivolously and I defnitely don’t do one-
night stands. I want what the title says — a
potential partner. I generally like someone
taller than me, which isn’t a problem since
I’m a midget, and blue eyes. I’m a sucker for
blue eyes.
tUrn-ons: Chivalry. Or just plain manners.
holding a door open gets me all tingly.
tUrn-offs: show-offs, plain and simple. you
don’t need to impress me for me to like you. I
favor the things that happen naturally.
whY i’m a catch: you’ll never get bored
around me. I’m the kind of person that makes
waiting for a dentist appointment fun.

You don’t have to go to New York City to see
a show-stopping number.
Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway features
songs from hit musicals like Phantom of the
Opera, Cabaret, Chicago, and Westside Story at
7:30 p.m. tonight at the Lied Center.
“I saw the show last spring and was really
impressed with it,” says Tim Van Leer, executive
director of the Lied Center. “The singers can
sing and they have great stage presence. They
also tell interesting stories about the show and
the experience.”
Neil Berg, the show’s musical director and
pianist, created 100 Years of Broadway to pay
tribute to the history of the musical. Now in its
ffth year, Berg says he created the show to
celebrate his mother’s generation. “I wanted to
create a rock concert for the Broadway world,”
he says.
Berg’s formula has been a success. “When
you see the Phantom of the Opera star perform,
you are seeing someone who has performed
the song over 2,000 times,” Berg says. “This is
the best talent in the world.”

Robert Decker remembers the frst time he
tried an Indian Pale Ale [IPA]. While visiting
his brother at college, Decker, Stillwater, Okla.
senior, drank a Bell’s Two Hearted [Pale] Ale
and was pleasantly surprised. “When a lot of
people think of beer, it’s a glass of American
style Lager like Budweiser. Beer is so much
more than that,” he says. “The more you learn
about it, the better chances you have of fnding
something to ft your exact taste.”
The balance between the malt, a barley grain
that has been soaked and dried to create a
sweeter favor in beer, and the hops, a fower
that provides the bitter, tangy favor to certain
beers, excited his taste buds. Beer, like wine,
can provide subtle yet complex favors that
stimulate the senses.
While the production of wine depends largely
on the region in which the grapes are grown
and other natural factors like the weather, beer
depends on the ingredients used and how it is
made. Luckily, there are skilled and inventive
brewers who make interesting and surprisingly
elegant favors. You can fnd a style of beer to
suit your individual tastes, but the hard part is
knowing where to start. “The possibilities are
limitless in terms of what you can actually have
and enjoy,” says Kevin Prescott, a brewer at
Free State Brewery, 636 Massachusetts St. He
says people will limit themselves to a 30 pack of
Natural light because its cheap and it gets them
drunk. “Something can be said for putting a little
more money down and enjoying the product.
That way, you’re not just slugging down watery
beer,” he says.
Tasting a beer is a lot like tasting wine —
there are rules to follow. Here are some tips
to make your tasting experience effective and
enjoyable.
>> A group experience can help you make
well-rounded observations about the favors.
Everyone has a different palette and different
senses, says Bryan Buckingham, a brewer
at 23rd St. Brewery, 3512 Clinton Parkway.
“Somebody might taste something different
or mention something that you might have
missed the frst time you took a sip,” he says.
Buckingham recommends focusing on one style
of beer. Buy a mixed six-pack of one style by
different breweries. Focus on a Pilsner or Pale
Ale at frst, then work up to Porters and Stouts.
And don’t forget to try everything in between.
>> If you insist on tasting several different
styles of beer throughout the night, make sure
you start with lighter-colored beers and work
up to darker beers. Don’t start with an IPA or
a beer with a lot of hops. Too many hops can
dominate your palette for the night. Also, don’t
smoke cigarettes before tasting and be sure to
drink water between beers.
>> Proper pouring can enhance the aroma
and favor of the beer. Prescott, the Free State
brewer, says you want the bubbles to rise to the
top. This lets the beer breathe while enhancing
smell and taste. Specifc glasses are designed
to emphasize favors in the different beers.
>> Note the appearance of the beer after it is
poured. Swish the beer around to let it breathe.
Focus on the smell and try to pick out the hops
or malts. Take a sip and focus on the favors.
Decker says to try to isolate a distinct favor that
you like in the beer.
>> Note the texture of the beer and its favors.
Is it sweet or bitter? Silky or dry? Tasting the
various favors creates a unique experience,
Chris Armstrong, Lawrence senior, says. “I
like to taste the chocolate and coffee favors
in stouts and the earthy, rustic favor of Belgian
farmhouse ales,” he says. “I like the complicated
tastes that have a balance between the
sweetness and spices.”
Porter/Stout. The stout and porter are
dark, bitter beers that use barley and dark
malts. The ingredients in these two styles give
a rich, complex favor. Stouts and Porters tend
to have sweet coffee and chocolate notes.
Try: Porter: Boulevard Bully! Porter.
Stout: Guiness
With: A pint glass.
Wheat. This favor is a common favorite.
With little to no hops you can taste the wheat.
American wheat beers also tend to use ale
yeast, fruit and other favors to give it a sweet,
citrus taste.
Try: Sam Adams Coastal Wheat
Hoegaarden- Belgian White
With: Wheat beer glass: The glass is tall,
starting off skinny at the bottom
and grows slightly larger at the top.
It allows for a nice foam head to
form at the top and helps trap the
aromas.
Branch out Beyond your average ale

PilSner. Light in color with high carbonation,
Pilsner has a clear, golden amber color with a
white foam head. It has an earthy, foral taste
with a light sweetness.
Try: Pilsner Urquell
With: A pilsner glass: Similar to the wheat
beer glass but with less curvature, the
pilsner glass shows off the color of
the beer.
Pale ale. Uses pure barley malts. It has
a strong favor that is bitter to the taste.
Many people are turned off by the bitter and
sometimes spicy taste, but fans will stand by
it. Its color ranges from golden to amber.
Try: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
With: A mug or a pint accentuates the
favors and allows foam to form at
the top, which gives off the aroma
of the malts and hops.

a SamPle of beer to get Started
A Porter please: Get your head out of the keg and try
new types of beer. If you’re into dark and bitter, go for a
Porter or Stout. If you like sweetness, order a Pilsner.

Bammel’s carefully crafted boat ride is just

Find culture in the Kansas City Crossroads
District. The event can be summed up in
three words: art, music and food. Decrepit
warehouses turned art galleries hold photos
and paintings priced in the double, to
quadruple, digits. Street performers juggle fre
and hula-hoop, not necessarily in that order, to
the soundtrack of local bands playing for, all
forms of, change.
First Fridays, as it has been dubbed, is Casey
Prohaska’s frst choice of ways to spend a Friday.
She’s been taking in the trendy surroundings
since high school. Now, the Olathe senior has a
farther drive to the Crossroads Art District, 20th
St. and Baltimore, but that doesn’t drive her
away. She still goes every chance she gets.
“It’s a concentrated area of art galleries
where the doors are wide open,” Prohaska
says. “The social side of Kansas City comes
out to play.”
“It’s a good place to see and be seen,”
Prohaska says. It’s also a good place to save
money- or spend it. The event is as free as
the artists’ spirits, but food and paintings are
always for sale. Make the experience even

hard to miss Liberty Memorial. The 217-foot
tall tower has been Kansas City’s testament to

the fallen and surviving soldiers of World War I
since 1926. It’s not as easy to spot the National
WWI Museum. The history is hiding behind
heavy doors, at the base of the memorial.
The Liberty Memorial Association started
collecting WWI memorabilia in 1920 and they
haven’t stopped. After raising $102 million
dollars, the 80,000 square foot dream museum
was made into a reality. In 2004, Congress
deemed it the offcial World War I Museum of
the United States. Two years later it opened
to the public and has been taking visitors on
an emotional journey through time from 1914-
1919.
Inside the entrance, WWI Museum Volunteer
John Reichley tears tickets on a glass bridge,
leading to the main exhibits. Nine thousand
artifcial poppies coat the ground underneath
the glass. Each single poppy represents 1,000
combatant deaths. Reichley stresses the
importance for everyone to do that math: 9
million total deaths.
Reichley graduated from KU 28 years ago
and has volunteered at the museum for four
years. He will never forget his frst shift.
“A man came out and said that this was
the best World War I Museum in the world,”
Reichley says. “I said, ‘You’ve seen all of them
in the world?’” He had.
Reichley speculates the museum is the best
because of the interactive exhibits. You can see
the aftermath of a building blown by artillery or
peek into a trench while listening to battlefeld
stories straight from the source. With 55,000
items and counting, there’s something for
everyone. You don’t have to be a history buff
to appreciate this tribute to the past. Check out
the new exhibit “Man and Machine,” which
features machines of war and the men behind
them. There is one vital detail that sets the
exhibit apart from the rest.
“It’s strictly from the German point of view,”
Reichley says. “Everything in there was made
and used by a German soldier: canteens, mess
kits and the biggest horse shoe I have ever
seen- that is no exaggeration.”
Refect on your day from a few hundred
feet above ground level. The $10 student ticket
allows entry to the museum, plus tower access
inside Liberty Memorial. Step into the elevator
that looks suspiciously like a time capsule and
45 seconds and 45 steps later you will view
Kansas City from such great heights. See if
you can spot the Sprint Center or the top of the

Businessmen wear crisp white button-downs
underneath their business suits and housewives
wear their hair curled into up-dos.
But don’t let the suit or hair fool you — these
men and women aren’t as clean-cut as they
look. Smoking, drinking and sleeping — around
— are all in a day’s work. It’s the early 1960s, as
told by the fctional TV show Mad Men.
Watching Mad Men is like studying
culture. On Sunday nights, students become
anthropologists of the fctional drama, which
airs at 9 p.m. on AMC. Each episode lets
students observe the beliefs and behaviors of a
society on the brink of social change — and the
madness that ensues. How will the civil rights
movement, Vietnam and second-wave feminism
affect these characters and the society in which
they live?
Mad Men follows the professional and
personal lives of the men and women at a
fctional advertising agency in New York City.
The character of Don Draper, the creative
director at the agency, steals the show not only
with his seductive and powerful presence at
the offce, but also with his complexities and
womanizing ways outside of it.
The show is in its fourth season and Topeka
sophomore Michael Myers can’t stop watching
it. He and Leawood sophomore John Hart watch
the show together each week. A few of their
fraternity brothers have started to join, having
never watched the series, but curious about the
hype.
A year ago, Myers was just as curious as his
friends when he started watching the show. He
says didn’t know anyone who watched Mad
Men, but had heard about the show’s multiple

Mad Men refers to each of
these historical and cultural
events throughout the series.
Emmy wins. On August 29, 2010 the show won its
third consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding
Drama Series.
Meyers says he admires the show because
it is provocative and intelligent. It’s a show that
requires the audience to think. “You watch Mad
Men, and, as the show gets deeper, you get
more obsessed,” he says.
Natasha Vargas-Cooper, author of Mad Men
Unbuttoned, says the show primarily resonates
with people because it’s “just great drama.” She
says, “It may be somewhat mystifying because
so many different people like it, but that’s what’s
so great about mass media.”
What sets the show apart from other TV
dramas is the time period element. No other
show on TV focuses on the early 1960s as
impeccably and vividly as Mad Men. The
historical references planted throughout each
episode are why Hart keeps watching the show.
For example, the current season references
Vietnam and the impending war. Hart says he’s
also impressed with the show’s commitment to
the era and its historical accuracy.
Stephanie roberts, Hutchinson junior, says
one of her favorite episodes was “The Grown
Ups” from Season 3, which focused on how
the characters reacted to the assassination
of John F. Kennedy. The episode showed how
the characters stayed glued to the TV for days,
waiting on the latest news update. The time
period may seem too old-fashioned for college
students, but watching the 1960s come to life
on screen makes the period seem much more
exciting, roberts says.
Vargas-Cooper says college students like
to watch the show because it’s “naughty.” Mad
Men showcases a culture where it’s completely
acceptable to “drink at the offce and grab a
secretary’s ass,” she says. That glamour of
delinquency still resonates among the youth of
today. Ideas that authority is not to be trusted
and that marriage isn’t sacred began to become
mainstream during this time, she says.
What shocked roberts was all the drinking
and sleeping around, especially within the
work place. She says she didn’t expect to see
so much promiscuity because during the 1950s
everything was so squeaky-clean. But Mad
Men’s creators are progressively tearing down
the visage of modesty.
Meyers says he sees how everyone is
constantly drinking, and how that affects
the characters’ personal lives. As the series
progresses, the effects of such behavior lead to
more serious results, such as broken families.
The character Draper is the perfect example of
this downward spiral, he says.
For example, as the creative director at the
ad agency, father and man with an identity
crisis, Draper has trouble keeping up with the
changing society. He often resorts to alcohol.
“You can see him really struggle to stay modern
— to stay relevant,” Vargas-Cooper says.
The ‘60s set the mood and the historical
backdrop while the characters, especially
Draper, drive the show. ron Wilson, lecturer
in flm and media studies and the graduate
writing program, uses the term “quality TV” to
describe the style of Mad Men. Part of quality
TV is an incorporated version of soap operas; it
showcases all the characters and how they’re
personal lives are depicted.
Ultimately, Wilson says the college student’s
fascination with Mad Men relates to living to the
hedonistic version of the good life. Young men
and women want to grow up and be successful,
just like the Mad Men characters on Madison
Avenue. But wouldn’t it be great if they could
work and sip on an old fashioned cocktail at the
same time?
Sixties swing: Te AMC series Mad Men takes place in
1960’s New York City. Te show profles an advertising
company and the men and women who work — and
sleep — together.

The walls of the Wonder Fair Gallery, 803½
Massachusetts St., can’t talk, but they do
send messages. The textual art of Chicagoan
Matthew Hoffman adorns the cozy gallery’s
white walls and hardwood foors. One section
shows gravestones with sardonic, hand-carved
epitaphs of the long-gone, such as “My only
regret is that I can no longer Google myself with
my morning coffee.”
The pieces satirize our generation’s ties
to Internet culture, and our other infatuation:
cynical irony. It’s ironic, then, that across the
room through shelves of for-sale artwork and
handmade crafts, sits Wonder Fair curator
Jason Barr on a MacBook, scaling the web.
He’s sending a message that transcends the
gallery’s walls into the Twitterverse:
If @VICE_VBStv or the @VICEMAG crew
come to Lawrence for the Scion Garage Fest,
gotta hit up the @AsteroidHeadArt home gallery
@WonderFair!
His tweet is directed to VICE Magazine, an
indie culture rag whose staff is rumored to
visit Lawrence for an upcoming music event in
October. Barr and the Wonder Fair are part of a
growing number of artists and event organizers
that use Twitter to expand and connect
Lawrence’s evolving arts scene.
Barr has used Twitter for two years, and
between Wonder Fair and his personal account,
boasts about 1,000 followers who receive short
updates about his work and responses to
followers’ comments. Barr says moreso than
Facebook, Twitter offers a quick, streamlined
way to fnd out what’s going on downtown and
meet interested people. “On Facebook I have
so much stuff that it’s really hard to sift through,”
he says. “But Twitter sort of jumped the shark
over everything.”
One of the people Barrr follows on Twitter
is Zach Hangauer, founder of Range Life
Records, a local label releasing music by artists
like Fourth of July and Suzannah Johannes.
During an interview (arranged on Twitter) at
his downtown apartment, Hanaguar says using
Twitter keeps his label accessible to community
fans. “As long as you have cultural contributors
and interested people taking Twitter seriously,
it’s a great way to converse locally,” he says.

PAINTING THE TOWN TWEET
his apartment, Hangauer can search “Fourth
of July” to see what Twitter users are saying
about his label’s artist, or even respond to a
Jayplay writer’s interview requests.
In some ways, Hangauer says these live
conversations on Twitter provide a pulse of
cultural happenings downtown — a void long
empty in Lawrence. “With Twitter it feels like
there’s a synergy again, like you can dependably
connect with people. It’s a good nucleus,” he
says.
Social media experts in Lawrence agree.
Last month, Hangauer and Barr spoke at the
Lawrence Social Media Club, a weekly meeting
of area enthusiasts. With Tricia Rock and Brent
Carter, founders of area art blog The Rathaus,
they discussed the ways interactive media
affects local culture.
Ben Smith, social media consultant and
club founder, says Lawrence’s small-town size
enables online connections to jump over into
real-life relationships, cultivating communities
and promoting events. That’s a valuable
commodity if you’re an artist or musician,
Smith says. Rarely are the words “artist” and
“entrepreneurial” uttered in the same breath,
but Barr believes creatives know how to sell to
survive. “Whether a car or painting, you have
to equally care about what your making and
successfully market it,” he says.
That marketable opportunity occurred last
month during Lawrence’s initial Final Fridays
art walk downtown. Just 10 days before its
frst event, the Twitter account “FFLawrence”
began posting updates, replying to community
members, and getting shout-outs and links from
Range Life, Wonder Fair and The Rathaus. By the
night of the event, a buzzing online conversation
emerged, connecting those at the buzzing real-
life event downtown. Though Final Fridays’

REVIEW
movie review //
A lot has changed in the two decades since
Oliver Stone’s original corporate takedown
Wall Street frst saturated the market back in
1987, simultaneously defning the golden age
of excess and creating a new cultural icon in
the form of Michael Douglas’ silver-tongued
corporate raider Gordon Gekko.
Now, in the midst of a seemingly endless
recession brought on by corruption and
mindless self-indulgence, perhaps the return
of Mr. Gekko and his “greed is good” mantra
was inevitable.
So, is Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
worth the investment? The answer depends
on your tolerance level for Shia Labeouf
and director Stone’s penchant for unsubtle
political sermonizing. The plot kicks off with
Gekko’s release from prison after serving an
eight-year sentence for the insider-trading
plot in the frst flm. The wily old libertine
quickly fnds himself acting as a surrogate
mentor to corporate whiz kid Jacob (Labeouf),
who by sheer coincidence is about to marry
Gekko’s estranged daughter Winnie (Carey
Mulligan).

tHe soCIal networK
Facebook revolutionized socialization, and
the flm does a great job of depicting the events
that led Mark Zuckerberg, the world’s youngest
billionaire, to his acclaimed wealth.
David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin directed
and wrote The Social Network, respectively.
And even though they’ve both had their fair
share of failures, this is not one of them. The
flm is a biopic about Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse
Eisenberg). In 2003, Zuckerberg was inspired to
launch a website for the social experience.
He enlists the help of his wealthy best friend
Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfeld) to pay for
the servers needed to run and launch the site.
However, trouble brews when Cameron and
Tyler Winkleboss (identical twins both played
by Armie Hammer) claim that Zuckerberg, who
they enlisted to make a website for them, stole
their idea, and then the creator of Napster, Sean
Parker (Justin Timberlake), drives a wedge in
Zuckerberg and Saverin’s friendship.
The flm is a fair portrait of Zuckerberg, who
can go from being relateable in one scene
to despicable in the next. In fact, everyone
involved in the creation of Facebook is depicted
as easy to hate and unbelievably relatable.

Sorkin, does well with the court hearings
for Zuckerbeg by spicing them up with
snappy dialogue, fdgeting and tons of cut-
aways. Timberlake shines as the wormy
Sean Parker who’s so easy to hate, as do
Eisenberg and Garfeld in their roles as
frenemies Zuckerberg and Saverin.
The flm is one of the best this year. It’s
interesting to see how many backs were
stabbed and how much blood was spilled just
so you could like that picture on Facebook.
Bretton James (Josh Brolin), a shady Wall
Street bigwig who may have been responsible
for the death of Jacob’s benevolent former
boss (Frank Langella). Much of the flm takes
place on the eve of the 2008 fnancial crisis, the
particulars of which are predicted by Gekko
with eerie acuity.
Labeouf and Mulligan fail to accumulate
much interest as the leads, both of whom
come off as overly cynical and unlikeable from
the onset. The flm grinds to an absolute halt
whenever they are left alone together.
Luckily Wall Street 2 is bailed out by its
immensely talented supporting cast. Douglas
reprises his Oscar-winning role with savage
aplomb. Josh Brolin exudes casual menace as
Mr. James. Eli Wallach and Susan Sarandon
both appear in brief but memorable turns,
particularly Wallach as an aging market guru
who equates bird calls with stock tips. All in all,
Wall Street 2 pays off in dividends, especially
in the stronger second quarter. See it soon,
before the market fuctuates with the arrival of
“The Social Network” next week.

the six weeks are up Erin has to go back to
grad school in San Francisco.
When Erin leaves to jet away on an
airplane Garrett runs after her, saying he
has had too much fun and doesn’t want it to
end. They both want to make a long distance
relationship work.
Issues arise like expected. The price of
plane tickets, only seeing each other for a
few days every few months, and the fact that
Erin’s sister Corinne (Christina Applegate)
absolutely hates Garrett takes a toll on their
relationship. If you look past the less-than-
belieiving “I’m in love with my best friend”
plot, you get a movie that could make you
want to go the distance.

experience, nor is it like their 2008 release
Alegranza. This eloquently-produced album
is immediately catchy like a pop album
should be, but has the potential to be more
than that annoying song stuck in your head
for weeks. The mix of styles between songs
allows them to stand out, but blend together
well.
One of my favorite elements to dance
along to is the steel drum, which bounces
through sick melodies as a feature or is
used as a backing rhythm instrument to add
some pep to the tracks. Both “Novias” and
the catchiest track, “Soca Del Eclipse,” start
with slick rhythms based around the steel
drum’s activities and turn into the easiest
tracks to sing along to, though I have to
guess the Spanish lyrics. The steel drums do
