SEMEN IN THE SHOWERS:

A LOAD OF SPUNK

While we couldnt understand why anybody would


want to masturbate in a Mendelsohn Quad shower, we
found it hard to ignore a photograph of the memos that
appeared in some Stony Brook residence halls before being splattered across Facebook over winter break.
The memos, which featured University letterhead,
stated that an overload of semen in shower drains was
causing major clogs. Students were then asked to refrain
from touchin on their wieners while in the shower and,
by extension, to keep the major jack-sesh in their rooms.
Even though a quick internet search revealed
that different versions of the memo have appeared in
the dorms of at least 18 colleges around the country,

@SK@RS

including Dartmouth, Virginia Tech, Villanova and several


other colleges way better than Stony Brook, we at The Press
decided to investigate the spoogefest to find out whether the
letters contained a seed of truth, or if they were simply an
ecstatic spasm of humor that resulted in a white glaze obscuring the facts. So it was with great gusto that we pumped
Associate Director of Campus Residences Alan deVries,
whose name was attached to the notice, for a few spurts of
information.
While he did thank us for our concern about unseemly
amounts of man chowder congesting Mendelsohn Quads
virgin pipes, our stiff line of questioning went limp when
deVries told us that this letter comes up every year at least
once andis clearly a hoax. He penetrated the heart of the
issue when he said that commenting on the letters for publication would not be worth anyones effort. He must have
thought we were jerking him around.

Drive Best Picture


Drive is a complicated movie. It!s a genredefying thriller that gets better the longer you

presentation, it sure should have been a shoe-in.
On the other hand, where the hell did Extremely
Loud and Incredibly Close come from, and how
did it knock Drive out?

proved this year that he is a talent to be watched. His performances


in Drive and The Ides of March were both top-tier quality.
Kirsten Dunst - Best Actress Melancholia
While MelancholiaZDVQWUHOHDVHGWRDVPXFKSUDLVHDVRWKHUOPV
released this year, the snub for Kirsten Dunst!s chilling performance
as a severely depressed woman, disturbingly calm in the face of
annihilation, still comes off a surprise.
Shailene Woodley Best Supporting Actress The Descendants
Shailene Woodley is relatively unknown, but her performance as an
emotional and rebellious teen in The Descendants, was shockingly
authentic. But I mean, really, does the Academy nominate on name
only? How could she be so easily overlooked?
David Fincher Best Director The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo JUHDWO\ EHQHWWHG IURP WKH VKDUS

a talent for conveying emotions and creating a sense of immersion.

Lana Del Rey Born to Die


Okay, so Lana Del Rey has had a tough start. Between
the time her breakthrough single Video Games achieved
worldwide success last year and her super-buzzed new album Born to Die was released at the end of January, she has
been hit with a hurricane of shit from all directions.
But upon examining her career so far, its not hard to

valuable indie market. She retained her hype despite the
revelation, which ultimately culminated to a near-Ashley
Simpson-level Saturday Night Live performance embarrassLDMS 2GDV@RHMSDQMDSLDLD HDCNUDQMHFGS@MCK@TMBGDC
to new levels of disgrace upon a highly publicized diss from
none other than chill anchor bro Brian Williams.
The story by this point made for a perfect comeback
ending; one that proves all the haters wrong with an emotionally deep and musically adventurous release.
Instead, the awkwardly depressing Born to Die sounds
more like a poorly executed mix of Ke$ha and Amy Winehouse. Most of these songs sound like muted versions of
what should otherwise be stadium-sized pop songs. Its
hard to understand who Lana is trying to please. Her song
structures and cringe-worthy awkward lyrics seem to be
only half-committing to the mainstream pop her industry
overlords usually go for, but it also takes from the worst

So where does she go from here? Surely Lana Del Rey

Cloud Nothings Attack On Memory

these guys bring to the table is both a blessing and a
curse; sure, theyre a little more fun to listen to than
the barely-audible Wavves or the formulaic whining of
Best Coast, but listeners will detect more than a few
instances of dubious songwriting choices. The choQTRNE%@KK(M ENQHMRS@MBD E@KKR@SVGDMBNLO@QDC
to the songs uptempo verses, and the plodding No
Future/No Past suggests that maybe Cloud Nothings
arent quite as smart as they think they are.
One impressive aspect of Cloud Nothings compositional style is their ambition. Shredding guitar solos
and strange, staggering rhythms from drummer Jayson
Gercyz come together for an impressive show of musicianship. The overall feel of Attack On Memory makes
a lasting impression as well. The production of the record is perfect not only for the bands aesthetic, but
also the era in which theyve come of age. Front man
Dylan Baldis raspy tenor is well suited to the madeHM @ A@RDLDMS DDBS NM SGD QDBNQCHMF  @MC ETYYX
bass and jangly guitars back him up to create an album thats equal parts garage punk and virtuosic tour
de force. But even with these things going for them,
Cloud Nothings disappoint over and over again with
over-indulgent guitar interludes and spacey introductions that run too long for their own good.
The band shines most on the bittersweet and ultracatchy Stay Useless, which will remind fans of the
early 2000s, when all the hippest punk bands played
dance beats and there was no way to tweet about it.
Its a shame, too, given the room for potential on display here. If only it added up to a little less than the
sum of its parts. -ANDY POLHAMUS
