Beyond the
strap debate

Choices: Fashion challenges arise from
the myriad of ways to haul school books

By Stephenie Drosick


The days of the tradition
al two-strapped backpack are
long gone for many UK stu-
dents. This semester. UK stu-
dents tote their books around
in an array of styles.

"There are so many styles
out now that people can find
one that they really like." said
Cassie Kingsland, merchan—
dising. apparel and textiles
senior. “You don’t have to
carry a regular backpack if
you don‘t want to."

One of the latest back-
pack crazes is one-strapped
shoulder bags. These bags re»
semble brief cases but give
the college student a more ca—
sual look.

This trend could be fash~
ionrelated or students may
just be looking for something

“I think it‘s definitely
fashion-related because it‘s
probably more comfortable to
carry a regular backpack so
the weight is on both shoul—
ders." Kingsland said.

Students who buy these
bags may want a more profes-
sional look without carrying
a briefcase, said a representa
tive from J & H Lao—Mark in

Some students at UK car-
ry camping backpacks. These
packs are much larger than
traditional backpacks and
more expensive.

Jonathon Edwards, a
chemistry sophomore. said he
has carried a camping back-
pack for two years.

“I like the size. i can get a

lot of books 111 it. It has lots of

compartments and storage
space." Edwards said.

Edwards said another
reason UK students find
camping backpacks appealing
is because these packs distrib~
ute the weight better across
your back.

Many female students re-
vert to large Vera Bradley
bags for a softer look.

“They are quilted totes
with organizer pockets on the
inside.“ said a representative
from For Friends in Lexing-
ton. "A lot of young ladies
use them as bookbags."

These cloth bags come in
many patterns and appeal to
college students because they
are washable and wear well.
the representative said.

All of these new styles are
quite a stretch from what stu-
dents used to carry.

”Nobody had attache cas~
es and nobody carried book-
bags." said Phil Berger. re-
tired professor at the Martin

A handful of people
would strap their books to—
gether with a belt and some
military veterans would put
their stuff iii old military-is-
sue bags. But the majority of
students carried nothing at
all, Berger said.

Despite the many trends
sweeping the campus, some
students said they prefer
their traditional backpacks.

“They hold up." said
Kristy Conard. an accounting
senior. “I’ve had mine since
high school and I carry a lot
of heavy books."

Kids’ trends
catching on

By Nick Smith

coniwiauiiii; virility

All across l'lx's campus. students are hearing a lot about a

madness consuming young people today. something called
Pokemon. without even knowing what it is all about.

“I don’t know exactly what it is. btit I see it advertised on

television a lot. maybe too much." said freshman Italian magior
Pierre I’leutot.

h .

i and the animated series on ’I‘\'. is that .-\s'h. a young boy. linds
I’ikachu. the yellow Pokerriori iriost people connect with the
Pokemon image. They and other Pokemon engage in various ad

The goal ofthe trading card and video games based on the

story is to acquire and train as many Pokemon as possible.
There are over 1.30 different types of Pokemon. according to
Nintendo‘s official web site.

The major difference between the Pokemon card game and

other card games is that in Pokemon. players can stack their
own decks. picking the best cards in order to achieve \ ictory.

While some critics argue that Pokemon encourages yio

lence (training Pokemon includes training them how to fight
each other). all Pokemon games issued by Nintendo have
earned an "E" rating (suitable for persons age six or older) by
the independent Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Despite the “B” rating. inatiy are worried about the effect

Pokemon has on the young. National media reports indicate
that Pokemon has raised concerns among the parents of the
children to whom it has been introduced. along with people who
work with these children. such as teachers and psychologists.

These individuals feel the kids are spending too much time

arid money on Pokemon and not enough on schoolwork. physi-
cal exercise and recreation. and family life.

However. some l'K students feel that all the uproar is over
nothing. and will soon die down.

“It's just another fad!" said theater sopho
tnore Michael Morris. “Before this it was
Power Rangers. before that it was 'l'eenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles. et cetera... like all fads
it will stay around until somebody comes tip
with something else to distract the kids with."

Hanging with the big people: UK
advertising students taste the profession

By Jason Hargis

An attempt to gain a competitive edge sent a group of UK
students interested in advertising to New York City for the 43rd
Annual Advertising Career Conference held Nov. 11-14.

Rick Roth. an integrated strategic communications instruc-
tor. said the conference was designed to help students gain a
better understanding of what companies will be looking for
once they've graduated.

“Students were given the opportunity to learn about differ-
ent jobs and how to get them at the highest level," Roth said.

The group visited two advertising agencies. Mad Dog &
Englishman and Batten. Barton. Durstine and Osborn (known
in the business as BBI)O) to experience a day in a typical ad

Mad Dog & Englishman is a smaller agency. with a laid
back atmosphere. In connection with their name. they actually
have dogs walking around the office.

While one group was enjoying the antics at Mad Dog & Eng-
lishman. the other was learning about the daily routine in a
larger agency. BBI)(). The students were treated to speakers
from different departments within the agency, to whom they
asked various questions.

“It was refreshing to get an inside look at what a creative
department is all about.“ Ushma Patel. an ISC senior. said.
“Talking with the people in the agency helped me get an under-
standing for what I‘ll be doing in the future."

Mychelle N ierman. an integrated strategic communications
senior. particularly enjoyed her experience at BBDO.

“BBDO was kind of amazing. they did two of my favorite
commercials, the Visa Platinum and the M&M‘s." Nierman

After the agency tours. the group had the opportunity to
mingle and speak with representatives from different agencies
in New York City at the Fashion Institute of Technology. a great
networking opportunity for the students with both potential em-
ployers and other advertising students from across the nation.

Unfortunately, a few of the students felt a bit cheated. “It
wasn't what we expected. there was bad representation from the
agencies." Patel said. “The ratio of professionals to students
was extremely uneven.“

Despite the bad representation of the agencies at the Fash-
ion Institute of Technology. the earlier tours had their desired
effect. Dennis Altman. an ISC instructor. said they were one of
the more important parts of the trip.

“it‘s a much more immediate experience than you can get
from any textbook or even a lecture." Altman said.

Jonny Depp reunites with director Tim Burton and succeeds in frightening
the bejeebees out of audiences and bringing in the bucks at the box office.

Burton's new flick has him doing what he
does best - making bleak, disturbing movies

By Luke Saladin

Tim Burton‘s Slecpr Hollow
is a smart. devilishly clever
film veiled in a glorious cele»

Part suspense and part sur-

like a dream through episodes
of horror. fantasy. romance and

is a dour place. at once the arti-
fice and reality of a filmmaker
who shuns the visual con;

The film is based on. htit in

Irving‘s timeless classic. The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

the Headless Horseman legend
takes place at the tail end of the
19th century. lchabotl Crane. a

Grammy winner Kenneth
“Babyfaee” Edmonds and wife
Tracey have collaborated fora
third time to produce the film
Light it [7). Sadly. this movie
pales in comparison to their
award-winning drama Soul

Set in a stereotypical in»
IlC‘l‘Cii)’ high school in
Queens. R&B singer [lsher
Raymond stars as Lester. who
takes over the school in a des-
perate measure to keep friend
Ziggy (Robert Richard) from
being sent home.

The series of events he-
gins when the window in Mr.
Knowlcs‘ (Judd Nelson) class
room breaks for the amp-
teenth time. Since it was too
cold to hold class there and
the rest of the rooms were al
ready occupied. Knowles tells
Principal Armstrong ((ilynn
'I‘urman) of the predicament.
Armstrong. stressed out him
self. tells the teacher to take
the class anywhere which
is exactly what Knowles does

When the principal finds
otit Knowles took the students
to a nearby restaurant to con-
duct class. he suspends
Knowles. The students start a
verbal protest to save their fa
vorite teacher. and Arm-
strong starts throwing out
suspensions left aitd right.
()ne of the students slapped
with disciplinary action LS
Ziggy: Armstrong tells the


heavy on cliches

Ortinal idea: Inner city ki
to defy sterotypes and come out on top

1n the madness. a haphaz-
ard group of six students re-
main behind and barricade
themselves in the schools li.

The movie attempts to
show that inner-city students
care about themselves. each
other and education. Howev-
er. the movie is so weighed
down by introducing too
many issues at once teen
pregnancy. physically-abusive
parents. the present genera-
tion's lack of focus and police
brutality. The social-issue
overload detracts from the
characters‘ development. leav-
ing the audience empty.

The lack of character do
veloptnent anti lapses in the
storyline in turn detract from
the actors‘ performances. de-
spite a talented cast (with the
exception of Usher. who really
needs to stick to singing).

An optimistic ending tilti»
mately leaves the audience
with a warm. fuzzy feeling.
Still the feeling isn't enough
