UK students waited patiently
in the cold yesterday morning for
more than an hour in UK's K—lot
because their bus to Central Cam—
pus failed to show up.

LexTran buses were running
late because they could not get the
engines to start in the cold weath-
er yesterday morning.

Steve Rowland, general manag-
er of LexTran, attributed the
problems to the cold weather.

“The buses‘ brakes are operat-
ed by the use of compressed air,"
Rowland said. “Sometimes these

“hen the temperature drops

lock up."

To combat this problem Lex—
Tran attempted to use alcohol to
clear up the air lines. However,
because of the freezing tempera-
tures the alcohol froze, too.

“\Ve were beat by the weather

The cold weather is not a prob—
lem only in Kentucky. This occurs
all over the country, even in the

You are an evil half—ore warrior wearing chain
mail, fighting a drooling goblin to the death with
your enchanted sword.

You are at the helm of a BattleMaster, an 85-ton
robot armed with a half—dozen lasers, a machine gun,
a missile launcher and a deadly particle projection

You are a sycho killer, dispatching your victims
with a pitchildrk, a post-hole digger and a Garden

You must be a Miskatonic.

The Miskatonic Student Union is a role—playing
and comic book organization which has been at UK
since 1988. The group is made u of role-players
who assume a fictitious identity antrcan solve a mys-
tery,'battle for money and power, beat up the bad
guys, beat up the good guys or do anything else
within the expansive realm of these games.

The group derives its name from the writings of
novelist HP. Lovecraft. The main characters in a
number of his stories were associated with the fic-
tional Miskatonic University.

Economics and sociology senior Miwako Lyn
Hirano, who was last year’s president and is this
year’s treasurer, said the comic book side of the
MSU is what drew her in.

“I just had mentioned offhand that I like to read a
good story,” she said, “and someone handed me a
comic book and said, ‘Here’s a good story that I
think you mi ht like to read.”

It was Nei Gaiman’s The Sandman.

“I was hooked,” she said.

Physics and linguistics senior Chris Hall likes the
MSU as much for the weird people in it as he does
for the chance to pretend he’s a vampire and enslave

“It’s mainly a social oup we just get a bunch
of people together antfltalk, and it always leads to
some interestin discussions,” he said. “We had one
discussion whicIi ended up with talking about using
Jesus’ head as a hand puppet and it started out so
calmly, too.”

Another afternoon’s was spent searching for the
equation to find the perfect bar in town, figuring in
such important factors as distance, cheapness and
quality of alcohol, and cuteness of waitresses.

“I’ve made a lot of good friends through the
MSU," Hirano said, “and even though several have
graduated, we keep in touch, because we’re a pretty
close-knit group."

Once a semester, the Miskatonics unleash the
LexiCon, a two~day carnival of vampires, super-
heroes, and giant robots clashing on the field of
imaginary combat.

Along with a number of role—playing games, the

yesterday afiernoon.

LexiCons feature vendors from gaming stores and
comic book stores, as well as Japanimation movies.

Hirano said the next Con, slated for March 29
and 30, the organization is trying to secure use of the
VVorsham Theater to show the films. This
semester's Con will have a Magic: The Gathering
tournament, and a miniatures-painting contest.

If you're not in the mood to cast magic spells or
butcher monsters, you can come to the Con and play
a relaxing game of Clue or Monopoly instead.

Cons also generally include representatives from
companies which manufacture role-playing games,
like FASA, the company which puts out BattleTech;
TSR, which is responsible for the granddaddy of the
genre, Dungeons and Dragons; and White \Volf,
which puts out Vampire. Speaking of fangs

“Last night I was fighting as a werewolf and
killing various minions of Satan," said MSU Vice
President Chris Crockett, a computer science
sophomore.“I was a good werewolf."

Music professor Gordon Cole has served as the
MSU’s faculty adviser since 1994.

“Is that what I signed?" he asked of the adviser
sign-up sheet he endorsed one day two springs ago.

“I can't remember the name of the student who
got me to sign that, but he said he needed a faculty
adviser that’s the first and last I ever heard of it,"
he said.

Hall said that the MSU is an unusually eclectic
bunch. Hirano agreed.

“\Ve've had conservatives in our group, we‘ve had
liberals, but it doesn't matter," she said. “\Ve can all

“Massachusetts is in a class by

“\\'e're in the hunt, but if anyone
thinks we can simply beat Mas-

Pitino said UMass’ defense
makes all the difference.

“They play defense like starving
dogs, like they haven’t eaten in
weeks,” he said.

L'Mass barely defeated Xavier
(Ohio) Sunday in overtime. The
Minutemen have won three over-
time games this season.

UK's players also turned
thoughts to March Madness.

Junior Derek Anderson is plan-

“That’s what it’s all about —
playing the best," Anderson said. “I

You’ve gotta want to play the best

“Kentucky is as good a team

poi ant.

he focus of this record is on the music of
metaphor and message instead of notes and
melody. Every line spoken by ‘Doon carries a
commitment to the politics of people and their
thoughts, coming right out and callin the
caca, tendering affection, offering hell) or
dropping science.

For example, the
son “Dread Brother”
is a I about the rasta
reggae culture and its
superficial subversions.

“C an ’t you hear Mar—

ley ought to beat the
shit out of the brothers
and sisters who lock
their hair but don’t
really care what Gar-
vey talked about, but
just get high, roll up a



blunt a s iliff, drink a fifth of piss .. I don t
think the brother heard a damn thing I said."

The album will make Vou think and ask
questions, or maybe throw it away in anger.
Either an you've felt something, and that
doesn t happen much in music anymore.

raped ghosts, stands (yraham Haynes

Haynes a comet player that worked with
Steve Coleman and Five Elements, has
released a record that takes jazz to the level
that would have occurred after the fusion
movement if everyone hadn’t been so caught
up in the “nice” harmonies and dug deeper
into records like Miles Davis’ Agbarm.

The record kicks it out with a Coltrane tune
transmogrified into the twenty—first century by
hip-box beats and scratches a la the “rap
machine" and Vernon Reid (of Living Color)
fuzzing the improv lines into soulful static.

From there the record takes a stroll through
the psychomental realms of convective corner
riffs and various excised melodies supported by
a wash of backwards drum beats; an Indian-
style jam with spin—cyclic melodies; gorgeous
harmonies with circumcised rhythm; meters
that jerk your feet off in different directions;
and a capella singing from iVIoorish Spain.

Although the book is written by
a politician, it is not necessarily a
political book.

It is loosely organized around
Bradley's travels across America
from urban ghettos, a Sioux
reservation and the coal—country
Appalachia of I’restonburg, Ky.

In the book, Bradley also asks
questions other politicians would
never ask, questions concerning
the things he believes in: com-
munity, faith, jiistic, hope and
humanity's potential to grow.

And yes, he will even answer
all those questions about why he
is leaving the Senate and where
he is going and \\ hat he‘ll do
