Shuggie gets the last word

The story could be the centerpiece of any independently-minded musician’s propaganda program, really. Label misunderstands brilliant artist, leaving his masterpiece to languish in obscurity. Decades later, the record is finally released to great acclaim, rescuing said artist from obscurity. It seems too poetic to be true. Shuggie Otis, a musical prodigy by any standard, released…

The aroma of fun

Maybe it was the opening of the movie that made me watch?the images of typical Valentine’s Day gifts being thrown into a dumpster. Maybe it was the prospect of watching a movie that billed French Stewart first. Maybe it was the way the title was cheesily written in large, cursive letters on the screen. Maybe…

When a horse isn’t a horse: Equus

Karl Marx once said that religion is the opiate of the masses. Yet even at a Catholic university like Georgetown, a lot of the students percieve religion and god as a less influencial force in their daily lives than sex. It may seem an odd comparison at first, but there does appear to be a…

The boy with the arab strap

The best measure of a DC-area nightclub’s import, or at least its funding, is to check the size of its ad in the City Paper. Ever heard of the Luna Park Grill? It’s in Arlington, apparently, or so the ad would have you believe. I can’t verify this personally. I’ve never been there myself. But…

It is less than sixty days to graduation and you don’t have a job, a plan or even a clue. Bills are mounting, parents are complaining and the Tombs is beckoning. On June 1st you will be homeless, unemployed and probably broke. Yes, you are a senior. We here at The Voice would like to…

Make art, not war

On the side of the building across the street is a sign that reads: “NOW! It is time to come to church and to God.” Across the Street from this publicly proselytizing parish is Paradise Liquors. A few blocks down 14th St. is a mission. The only establishment missing from the intersection is an explosives…

Portrait of the Artist as a prisoner

By:

A man dives off a dock behind a police station into the wind-whipped Carribean Sea. A grainy, shuddering Castro articulates upon the finer points of revolutionary necessity while his beard devours the microphone. Confronted by a police officer, a man appears terrified at first, then takes a long drag of his cigarette and kisses the…

A Brassy Blonde

Ever since Blondie’s “Rapture” dropped as one of the first recorded rap tracks, rock bands have had valid reason to lay claim to hip-hop. The pollinization has run both ways; Run-DMC gladly returned the favor, unfortunately culminating in their poor selection of Aerosmith as the embodiment of all that rap could learn from rock. This…

The Shiny Bald Guy

This article exists because every year many of us fool ourselves, for just a few weeks, into thinking that the Oscars are something other than a huge joke. Beautiful people get dressed up to compete for a little, shiny, bald guy named Oscar. The getting dressed up part means parading around in kitschy clothing that…

I call you a foo’ to yo’ face

No, I did not attend “Mr. T. Tells It Like It Is” this past St Patrick’s Day. Instead I was insulted (and rightfully so) by one of four singers of Q and Not U because I had failed to arrive at the Wilson Center in time to see two of the opening bands of a…
