The plans for the location of the iiew UK
basketball arena. as well as development plans
for the currertt facility. are underway. officials
announced Tuesday.

During a public forum hosted by the Lexi
ington ('enter. which holds Rupp Arena.
more than 100 people listened to officials
discuss a new center and asked questions
about a future development. tentatiyely'
planned to be built across the street from
Rupp Arena's current home betweert High
and Main streets.

Renovations to Commonwealth Stadium
and construction of a new onscamptis baseball
stadium are also being discussed. said UK
Athletic Director Mitch Barnhai't, Barnhart
said that plans for construction. which also iii-
clude renovations to Rupp Arena to allow for

other Uses. have only rust been formed and are
still iii the early stages

'We‘ re only at mile one or two ol a 267
mile marathon." Barnhan said.

Building the new athletic tacilities will de—
pend on private funding. as well as require re
search from marketing companies to deter
mine if this type of financing will be possible.

The research could be completed as soon
as January of 200*). Barnhan said.

Two companies. lMU (‘ollege and llltcl'v
national Stadia Group. were authoriIed by the
board of the Lexington (”enter Corporation to
conduct a study oit how feasible the protect
would be. The two companies are also iiiyesttr
gating how mtich private funding could be

generated for the design and construction of

those new facilities.

The project would be funded many differ—
eitt ways. said Steve Moore. president or North

To keep this ”urban impression." ()wen
said the only space convenient enough for the
new arena is the surface parking lots between
High and Maxwell Streets.

(BA with Nominees for mtvU Woodie Awards


Bands talk about life, music and award show glamour

Matt Murray

Students are the judges. Producers,
labels and prufi’A‘A’frmu/S mean nothing.
[he mtvU Wimdie Awards are “the defin-
itive awards in college "attic" and (m
.‘Vuv. 19. students will have their voices
heard. The Kernel had the opportunity to
\l‘(’ how nominated artists felt about be-
ing a part ot'such a progressive awards

Vampire Weekend: Ezra Koenig

Q. Just a year ago you guys were
trying to tour and get your name out
and now you’re on the Woodies. How
does it feel to be blowing up the music

it: » A lot has changed since the begin~
iiitig of the year. It's still hard to fully
comprehend it. We've beeit very happy
with the amount of people that come to
shows We get people who are main-
stream. we get people in their 60s and we
even get kids. so a lot has changed in that

9. How did you all incorporate all
0 the various styles in your music
without having the differing elements


is i It came pretty natural. We all kind
of grew up listening to the different
styles you hear in the tnusic. At the saute
time. you get an idea that two things can
sound good together and then they don't.
We don‘t want anything to sound forced
so we just kind of went with the things
that came together quickly and naturally.

. How was your experience play-
ing with Crosby and Nash?

It was incredible. We were playing
for Music for Democracy and we knew
they were going to be there. and they in»
\‘ited its to play With them. We grew up
listening to them and getting to meet
them backstage and getting to play a
song with them was really great. They
came out of the '60s. which was a really
politically active era. and with such an
important election on the horizon. it was
cool to be able to be a part of that with

All Time Low: Alex Gaskarth

Q. Do you guys ever get tired of


For the most part it‘s just a really
good time. I tfiiiik it just takes a certain
breed of person to be touritig all the time
like any hand does. btit for the riiost part

we just make a great time out of every-
thing. At the end of a two—month tour
you definitely get a little homesick. but if
that's the worst part of your job then it's
not too much to worry about.

Q. What challenges did you guys
have getting a record deal straight out
of high school. and how has that expe-
rience turned out for you?

\ i The biggest challenge at the time
was convincing our parents to let us do it
and not go to college. [is a big scary de-
cision for a parent to sit back and make.
Like “Am i really going to sit back and
let my kid take this much of a risk?" But.
I think we've been really lucky that it all
came together. but I think making that
decision was one of the biggest steps for
us as a band.

. With all the extensive touring
that you’ve been doing. has there been
one particularly crazy moment or ex-
perience that stands out?

it‘s so hard to pick just one sce—
nario. It's just so hard to believe I get to
totir for a living. I feel like i tricked
someone into letting me do this. One of
the craziest things that happened was that
after one of otir shows I think- we man—
aged to cram about 30 people into the
front lottngc of otir bus. which I don‘t
know if you know how a tour bus is lard
out. btit they‘re pretty narrow. We literal-
ly had people standing on countenops.
the couches arid the table. and we were
jtist having the biggest dance party ever.
It was relatively unsafe l think.


. If you could create your own
tour. who would be on the bill?

There are so many tours that wotild
be so fun. l have always wanted to play
with Dey‘o because they are like my ulti~
mate favorite band. That‘d be an ideal
tottr. But at the same tiiiic id love to go
on tour with friends. [just did a tour with
the Bcastic Boys. Norah Jones. Jack
Johnson and Sheryl (‘row for "Get Out
and Vote" aitd I had so much fun because
I wanted to be like the Beastic Boys
when l was little. not to mention that the
tottr was based around such an important
topic. like what we thought about the
election. I just low that it was fora \ital

Q. ‘You've done so many collabora-
tions. Do you think that has had an ef-
fect on your sound?

An artist collaborates for all differ»
eiit reasons. Whenever you collaborate

with a friend it‘s always a great experi-
ence because it's relaxed and you're just
kind of hanging out. I did something
with David Byme front Talking Heads,
so that was very different because you go
in trying to be yery professional. There
are different things you value from each
collaboration. As far as how they evolve
my sound, I don’t thirik they do because
within a collaboration it takes you out of
your element and you kind of have to
find yourself within the collaboration and
stay true to your style.

. What is it like to be awarded by
a s ow where winners are determined
solely by college students?

‘x‘i I think it's great because unfortu»
nately a lot of award shows are so far re-
moved from the pulse of actual music lis-
teners. It seems that way to me because
all of the people on award shows are so
tied into the money world of music. You
get anists front Disney shows and Amer»
ican ldol. It‘s just not very iti touch with
what's really going on iii music and bub-
bling tip. You don‘t get a diverse per—
spective of artists. so when you have col—
lege students decide. they are right on the
pulse of music and are far more in tutic
to the underground stuff. As a result. you
get a more accurate picture of where mu~
sic actually is and it’s excellent. How are
we supposed to compete with Miley
Cyrus. is that her nainc'.’ None of us have
otir own TV show.

She and Him: Zooey

. Most award shows involve opin-
ions from professionals in the music
industry while this is based around the
opinion of college students and their
voting. How do you feel about the dif-
ferences between these two elements?

I tlitiik it's great because i tliiiik
people are finding their unique \oices at
this stailc in their career. I think it‘s c‘\c’llr
trig just to be recogni/cd by people who
are well educated but riot necessarily in
the profession. it‘s a big honor.

Q. How do you feel about being
nominated for a "Left Field Woodie."
which basically means you're in a gen-
erally unclassifiablc category?

1 take it as a great compliment. 1
think. as art artist. the more yott kccp
your blinders on and create without
thinking about what people w ith think of
you. the iitorc you trcatc things ottt of
the ordinary and the more satisfying it is
as an artist. There's a plat c for gcnrc and
categories. but he Lli\\;t_\\ found If to be
most rewarding to ticatc for sclfrpt'olcsr

Smoking survey
results should
be questioned

Anything that helps lower the number of smokers in the
state. whether it be public service announcements that actual—
ly work or rising costs preventing people from buyiitg more
cigarettes. is commendable.

So a recent study by the Us (‘ollege of Nursing that re-
ported an ll percent drop in college smokers since I990 is a
great step. But in a .state where tobacco has been part of a tri»
umvirate of vices. any reported decline in smoking should be
further reviewed.

In a Nov. 7 article. many students pointed to higher costs
in other areas of life as a potential reason for not smoking.
()ther students jUst expressed the need to become a lot thrifti«
er when it comes to buying cigarettes.

"I can‘t afford to smoke." Charlie Lockhatt. a music per—
formance ~iunior. said to the Kentel. "Smoking's not a necessi—

Lockhart is exactly right; smoking is not a necessity for
many. despite what they actually think. But the recent report
is questionable.

First. when the survey was last taken in 2004. 900 people
were surveyed. For the most recent round of surveying during
spring of this year. less than 500 people where questioned.

Four hundred people could be a very reasonable explana-
tion for an 1 1 percent drop. more so than crunched budgets
arid smoke-free environments. People who smoke. not just
the “weekend warriors" or students who casually smoke.
can't just quit the habit. Everyone has that family member
who has used the patch. the gum and jUst plain willpower.

Chances are they might still smoke. And budget cuts
won‘t help that matter. but instead probably increase it. There
are few things that would facilitate a much-needed cigarette
more than realizing rent is due and your credit card bill came
in the mail.

Maybe ll percent of stttdents did stop smoking. If so.
congratulations and let‘s push that number down another If
percent. But before arty celebration is started. let‘s survey the
same amount of people at the same time of the year. maybe
more. Follow around the same group of smokers arid rioti—
smokers arid see who quits.

It doesn‘t take a statistics whiz to see the data could be
skewed. Maybe iii 2004. a lot of upperclassmen smoked.
Now. with those students gone. a new batch of students de—
cided cigarettes aren't for them. Wide ranges of variables are
in play when it comes to this study.

Not to rain on anyone‘s parade. because it‘s awfully hard
to light tip in a downpour. but with Kentucky‘s history and
the current economic atmosphere. anyone who says that the
number of people who smoke has decreased should expect to
draw skepticism.


U K has taken ()bama
effigy incident too far

This is ridiculous. Right before Halloween. a couple of
guys hang a scarecrow with a Barack ()banta mask on in a
tree on campUs and what is it called"? A questionable Hal—
loween decoration'.’ A joke in poor taste'.’ No. here at UK.
it's called aii effigy. and it seems to be JUSI about the worst
thing ever.

Here is what “effigy" means. as taken from
dictionarycom: "a crude representation of someone disliked.
used for purposes of ridicule.“ How is that different from
Will Ferrell playitig (ieorgc W. Bush on Saturday Night Live.
which was running the satiie iirglit the effigy was hanged‘.‘ It‘s
not. except that on television. as called satire and it's ftinny.

Don‘t get me wrong. racism is not funny. And hanging a
scarecrow w itli a presidential candidate mask on. even if i
