Down To You
The Green Mile
Puff signs Hobbit to Bad Boy
Entertainment and throws party
By Justin Taylor
When I was reminded that I could do a com-
mentary for my own page, I began to cackle evily.
Tills was power. So, I thought 1 would hit a cou-
ple of subjects/ just so you could learn something.
Production has begun for movies based on
"The Lord of the Rings, " a trilogy by J.R,R,
Tolkien. If you didn't already know; Tolkien is
the man. If you haven't read any of the series
("The Hobbit/''"Lord of the Rings'') you really
should. It has always made for interresting
I have a feeling that these movie will fide me
over until the next Star Wars movie comes out.
Who knows when that will be, producers like
to push back opening dates. Starring in this
first movie is Elijah Wood.
You should know him from such provaca-
tive media films as "The Faculty." So, it's okay
if he plays a Hobbit. I always thought he
looked kind of like a dwarf anyway.
Also, gracing the movie with her film pres-
cence is Liv Tyler. Yes yes, she's that sexy daugh-
ter of Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler. She
seems to be growing as an actress, receiving better
and better roles.
When it comes to "The hobbit," I'll just keep my
fingers crossed, hoping that they do not mess it
up too badly.
The second subject is about Puff Daddy. Yes,
Puff Daddy. Don't ask how I made the leap from
"The Hobbit" to the money making mogul and
C.E.O. of Bad Boy Entertainment, but I did.
He sure does know how
to stay in trouble once he gets
If only he put some of
that media power to keeping
his record at number one, he
would be alright.
I seriously hope that he settles
In fact, this is me telling
him to settle down in print.
Since Sean does not want to
answer my many phone calls.
"Puff Daddy, settle down!"
There, I said it. Maybe if
he keeps on acting up, Jennifer Lopez will leave
him and come to me,
I'll keep dreaming, if you keep reading.

By Natosha Hayes
Last Thursday night's 9-Ball
Tournament ended Tarleton's
9-ball series. The last 9-ball
tournament took place at the
SDC, and had a great turn out.
As the pool tables began to
clear at the end of the evening,
the remaining competitors of
the tournament played against
one another for sought-after
New transfer student Doug
Schroder won the tournament,
finishing ahead of last year's
Trey Smith, another new
transfer student, took second
Last year's leading Tarleton
9-baller Levi Lewis finished
third followed by another top
returnee, Cody Ayers.
Tarleton students have been
accumulating points at each of
the five 9-ball tournaments
held this year, beginning in
September. The points are
determined by the top finish-
ers at each tournament.
Overall, Ayers is in first
place and Lewis is in second
followed by Michael Wilbourn
and Nathan Chapin,
Due to the tremendous
amount of competition dis-
played at Thursday's tourna-
ment, the decision has been
made to have one final playoff

in SDC game room.
tournament to determine the
third and fourth-place spots for
Texans to advance to Regionals.
This tournament will take place
January,31 and February 2.
The top four players will

Tournament held at the
University of Houston on
February 18-20. These top four
will represent Tarleton as stu-
dents compete individually in
the three-day tournament.
"Last year we competed real-
ly well at Regionals," said 9-
ball sponsor Russell Fairchild.
"Levi and Cody competed as
freshmen last year and finished
about midway in the tourna-
ment. With more experience
this year, I'm confident that
they'll play even better."
And if Tarleton 9-ballers do
"As far as I know no one from
Tarleton has ever gone on past
Regionals to play at the
International Tournament," said
Fairchild. "But that's definitely
something to look forward to in
the near future."

D'Angelo puts Voodoo spell on listeners with sexy second album
By Justin Taylor
Looking for that slow CD to relax to?
D'Angelo provides his listeners with a mellow, soulful sound.
His first CD, "Brown Sugar," was an immediate success and
increased his noteriety within R&B circles.
D'Angelo proves himself to be one of the new era soul artists,
placed with such contemporary greats as Maxwell and Lauren
Hill. D' Angelo's latest CD "Voodoo," is as good as his previous
CD, if not better.
Listening to his album reveals him to be the heir and protege of
such R&B greats as Curtis Mayfield, A1 Green and Marvin Gaye.
People believe that R&B has degraded to the point where all
the songs are about is pointless sex. One listen to this compact
disc could prove the critics wrong.
As I listened to these songs, I began to relax and even fall
asleep. Its melodies and songs were soothing to me.
The tracks were well mixed, and D'Angelo provided a blend of
music. There were tracks that were neither too slow, nor too fast
which makes it an ideal CD.
I went to the CD store to look for this specific compact disc. Its
release date had been pushed back for about 3 months. It has
been well worth the wait.
Tracks like "Chicken Grease" paint D'Angelo to be a
purposeful writer of prose.
A poet who sets his words to jazz. Other
songs, like "One Mo'gin" show that D'angelo
will use other instruments, such as the soft
organ, to provide the background music for his
Just a hint. Gentlemen, you should be rush-
ing to the CD stores to get this compact disc.
D'Angelo proves to be the artist that
will have every girl in your dorm room/apart-
ment/ car to listen and relax with you.
