Police hunt for



2 in rape cases


Gainesville Police Depart-
ment officials are asking locals
to be on the lookout for two
men suspected of raping two
women.
Both women said they were
robbed and attacked after they
accepted rides home from a
stranger, said Keith Kameg,
GPD spokesman.
The first woman was assault-
ed on Aug. 30 when she accept-
ed a ride home from a man, who
then took her to the T.B. McPher-
son Center saying he needed to
use the restroom, Kameg said.
A second man arrived carry-
ing a handgun, robbed the wom-
an of $5 and raped her.
Kameg said the second wom-
an's case is similar, except that
the gunman was armed with a


shotgun and robbed her of $15
before raping her and beating
her with the shotgun. She was
attacked on Saturday.
The driver is described as
an 18- to 20-year-old black man
about 5 feet 5 inches tall with
short hair.
The gunman is described as a
black man about 5
Local feet 10 inches tall
News with short hair.
The car in both
cases was described as a mid-
to early-'90s white Grand Prix
without tinting and a blue cloth
interior.
GPD asks that anyone with
information about either man or
the vehicle call Detective Victo-
ria Harris at 352-334-2470.

SG cabinet secretary arrested on DUI charges


He failed sobriety tests, refused to give breath sample


By KATIE KLOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF Student Government cabinet
secretary was arrested early Wednesday
morning after police say he was driving
under the influence of alcohol.
William Stewart Sedgwick IV, 19, was
pulled over near Northwest 13th Street


and Northwest 10th Avenue near Ap-
plebee's after he turned into an area that
was closed for construction, according to
a police report.
The Florida Highway Patrol officer who
made the initial stop reported that he had
to physically remove Sedgwick from his
vehicle.
The officer also stated that Sedgwick's


breath smelled strongly of alcohol.
Sedgwick failed several field sobriety
tests, including following a pen without
moving his head and standing on one leg,
according to the report.
He was pulled over at about 2:40 a.m.
and booked into the Alachua County Jail
at about 4:40 a.m.
After arriving at the jail, he refused to


give a breath sample three times and was
charged with DUI, according to the re-
port.
Sedgwick, a UF marketing junior, is the
Finance and Fees cabinet secretary, an un-
elected position appointed by the Student
Body president.
E-mails seeking comment from Sedg-
wick and Student Body President Jordan
Johnson, who appointed him, were not re-
turned Wednesday.

State reps criticize radio show for lack of morals


"Lex & Terry," a syndicated radio show broadcast on
UF-owned Rock 104, drew some heat from state lawmakers
Wednesday.
State representatives Joseph Abruzzo and Erik Fresen
co-signed a letter to UF President Bernie Machen criticizing
some of the show's segments, like "Happy Birthday Bitch,"
"The Running of the Bums" and "Homeless Idol."
The letter was also sent to Gov. Charlie Crist, dean of the
College of Journalism and Communications John Wright
and UF's Board of Trustees.
"It is not our intention to censor positions," the letter
reads, "or views however; subject matter which is dehu-

manizing and/or degrading to the physically disabled or
offensive to a specific gender or race is un-
acceptable."
The lawmakers note that the station
claims to be funded solely through adver-
tising revenue but argue that its relation-
ship with UF requires it to represent UF's
ethics and moral standards.
Machen and Wright were out of the of-
fice Wednesday and couldn't be reached
for comment. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes declined to
comment until they returned.

This isn't the first time the show has come under fire at
UF, though. In 2005, UF stopped airing a segment of the
show called "Drunk Bitch Friday" because of issues with
binge and underage drinking.
Sue Yelton, coordinator of the community group that has
protested changes to UF's other radio station, WUFT-FM,
said she agrees with the lawmakers.
"The content of the Lex & Terry show, a lot of it goes
directly against the aim and mission of the university," she
said. "We're trying to improve our image with being No. 1
or No. 2 party school," she said.

NATIONAL

Playboy survey reveals students' sexy side


By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

The secret is out: College kids like a lot of
sex. According to Playboy's most recent col-
lege sex poll, that is.
For two weeks this summer, Playboy sur-
veyed more than 5,000 male and female col-
lege students from across the country on its
Web site for the magazine's October issue on
topics ranging from number of sexual part-
ners to masturbation habits.
"I think the media has portrayed this gen-
eration as a wild, rampant, orgy-style society,"
said Playboy associate editor Rocky Rakovic.
Although some of the poll's results seemed
to shock some UF students, including the
Playboy statistic that revealed 41 percent of
those surveyed knew a person who slept with
a professor or teacher's assistant, other results
were met with little concern.
"I'm overall not surprised by the statistics,"
said freshman Tyler McCann. "I don't know, I
expect people to do these things."
McCann was particularly surprised to hear
that nearly half of those who took the poll ad-
mitted to having anal sex at least once.
"I think it would have been interesting if
more of the questions had been separated by
sex," he said.
Other students agreed with McCann's con-
cerns with the sampling methods.
"You're sampling the people who are al-
ready on Playboy to begin with, so it's not as
random as it could be," said freshman Court-
ney Enright, pointing to the magazine's sta-
tistic that recorded 49 percent of respondents


had 'sexted' in their lifetime. "I think that
number isn't realistic or maybe we're just re-
ally naive."
'Sexting' is the act of sending sexually ex-
plicit text or picture messages via cell phone.
"I couldn't name anyone that's 'sexted' be-
fore," said freshman Kim Demkovich. "I think
that number's a little high."
Rakovic, a 2004 graduate of Seton Hall Uni-
versity, agreed with poll readers who ques-
tioned the validity of the survey's results.
"There is a bit of an honor system going
on for sure," he said. "But there's no reason to
taint the results."
According to Rakovic, only 20 percent of
respondents were female and no qualifying
questions based on race, sexual orientation or
religion were asked.
Some questions were strictly directed to a
specific gender, however.
Women respondents to the poll were asked
to answer if they had ever taken a "walk of
shame," which refers to a woman walking
past a group of strangers after having partici-
pated in some form of sexual activity.
Forty-seven percent of female respondents
admitted they had.
Even if they didn't believe all of the results,
the poll provided a few laughs for readers.
"Yeah, well, 9 percent of people lied,"
Brett Wager, 22, said as he laughed about the
magazine's statistic that reported 9 percent
of respondents did not masturbate. "I think
some people are trying to be cooler than they
really are. I mean, almost 30 percent of people
looking at porn in class? I have never seen
that," Wager said.


Wager's observation points to an inter-
esting technological trend in Playboy's data.
More respondents than ever, according to Ra-
kovic, seem to be participating in new techno-
logically enhanced sex methods.
The magazine's poll reported 25 percent
met a sex partner online and 26 percent ad-
mitted to using a webcam for sex. Perhaps
more shocking to poll readers was the statistic
that reported more than one-third admitted
to being naked in a picture on someone's cell
phone.
"Technology and sex seem to go hand in
hand," Rakovic said. "It's a human need that
drives us. [People] will find a way to make sex
more exciting. It used to be having sex in the
back of your car, but soon it will be in the back
of your hovercraft."
Rakovic added that the poll's results didn't
totally signify a sexually driven generation.
Nearly one-fifth of respondents recorded they
were virgins, for example.
"One of the results I was most happy to see
was with 73 percent saying they've been on a
traditional 1950s movie-and-dinner date," he
said.
Some results stood out to Rakovic as a vali-
dation of the poll's authenticity.
"The results are true. Twenty-six percent
of guys don't care how a girl is groomed.
Well, that's probably true. Most guys when
they see a girl's vagina, whether it's groomed,
dyed yellow or a full bush, most guys are just
happy to see a vagina," Rakovic said.
The complete results of Playboy's 2009 col-
lege sex survey are in the magazine's October
edition, which is available now.

Even a dismal economy can't
stop money from flowing into Stu-
dent Government party campaigns.
As of Sept. 14, the Unite Party
has received $2,395, the most con-
tributions of any party. The Orange
and Blue Party has received $616.77
and the Progress Party has received
$585, according to campaign ex-
pense reports.
Unite Party Treasurer Ryan Mills
thinks the Unite Party's budget will
near $5,000. The party plans to spend
most of its money on T-shirts, which
will cost about $3,000, Mills said.
The party also spent a pretty pen-
ny on stickers, which cost $712.50,
according to expense reports.
Mills said the party has a large
support base, including former sen-
ators and campaign volunteers who
aren't members of Student Senate.
Reports show Student Body
President Jordan Johnson also do-
nated to the cause, giving $125 to the
Unite Party.
Orange and Blue Party treasurer
Taylor Cinalli said the party also re-
ceived donations from students and
hopes to raise about $3,000.


Orange and Blue Party President
Kyle Huey gave $400, the largest in-
dividual donation as of Sept. 14.
Most of the Orange and Blue Par-
ty's money has been spent on fliers.
According to the expense report, the
party spent about $155 on fliers so
far. The party also plans to buy ban-
ners and T-shirts, Cinalli said.
"We're trying to encourage our
senators to get our
message out there
so that everyone
can be more in-
volved," she said.
Progress Party
Treasurer Guiller-
mo Lopez said
Johnson his party is more
concerned with
spreading its ideas than spending
its money. It does not have a specific
spending goal, he said.
The Progress Party spent $507.07
on T-shirts and about $63 on fliers,
according to the Sept. 14 report.
Lopez said party received dona-
tions from party officials, candidates
and volunteers but doesn't require
candidates to donate.
"We do try to let the message be
known that campaigning doesn't
come free," he said.

Batman has the Batmobile. Su-
perman has a cape. Hammock
Man has his hammock.
"Anywhere my backpack goes,
my hammock goes with," Santa Fe
College student Martin Kipp said.
Kipp, 19, bought his ham-
mock at an art festival in down-
town Gainesville last winter and
started using it regularly in the
warmer spring weather. He hangs
it between the trees on the Santa
Fe campus when he is waiting be-
tween classes.
"A hammock is portable, easy
to set up and you're always in the
shade," he said. "It conforms to
your body, so it's the perfect mat-
tress."
Kipp likes that he can either lie
down in it or just have a seat.
"The only time it's uncomfort-
able is when it's cold and there's a
really biting breeze," he said.
Where Kipp hangs his ham-
mock depends on the time of day
- he follows the shade.
"There's this one spot that in
the mornings it's in full sunlight,
but in the afternoon it's perfect be-


cause it's in complete shade," said
Kipp, who plans to study land-
scape architecture at UF.
~ 6~:~B8ka'AP


He said that he especially loves
spending time in his hammock be-
cause he loves trees.


"I hate driving through this ur-
ban sprawl and seeing almost no
trees," he said.

Martin Kipp, a 19-year-old Santa Fe College student, lounges in his parachute hammock between class-
es on the SFC campus. Kipp carries his hammock in his book bag with him at all times.


Although the UF campus is
peppered with hammock-dwell-
ers, Kipp appears to be the only
one of his kind at Santa Fe.
John Zupantic, who went to
high school with Kipp, said he was
not surprised when Kipp started
setting up his hammock on cam-
pus.

"Aiuwkm Hui back geq ,

SFC student
"He's not afraid to be differ-
ent, and I think that's what people
think when they walk by him,"
Zupantic said.
He said he's even thinking of
getting a hammock for himself.
Kipp said that he is surprised
that no one has ever has the idea
to set up a hammock and relax be-
tween classes at Santa Fe before.
"They never had the imagina-
tion to actually act on that," he
said.
Kipp said that he's sorry he
didn't start this tradition earlier.
"I'm just surprised at myself
that I didn't think of it sooner and
start back in high school," he said.

Editorial

Oh, Nuts

Government should

continue to fund ACORN

T-he Senate should not have voted to deny funds to ACORN
the Association of Community Organizations for Re-
form Now on account of transgressions perpetrated by
a handful of employees.
The group came under fire after two activist filmmakers,
posing as a young prostitute and pimp, caught ACORN em-
ployees explaining how to run a brothel of underage "women
of the night" while evading the federal government.
These actions are inexcusable. However, the answer is not to
deprive the agency of federal funding.
The filmmakers visited ACORN branches in San Diego, Los
Angeles, Miami and Philadelphia before finding employees
who would react in a way that furthered their anti-ACORN
agenda. If conservative activists consider this an appropriate
formula for fact finding, they might as well pursue the disband-
ing of their own political party.
A more appropriate response from the Senate would be to
sanction the employees involved in the scandal and to conduct
an investigation into their branches.
We wonder why the Senate voted 83-7 to deny ACORN
funding based on an amateur display of "gotcha" journalism
by a 20-year-old college student.
We also wonder why they succumbed to Republicans who
are so intent on vilifying the agency. ACORN gets most of its
funding through state and local governments, but this vote is at
least a symbolic surrender to the GOP's ongoing attacks.
In the age of YouTube, it's hard to avoid letting fringe groups
make their videos viral. It's a sad day, though, when the Senate
decides to stop funding a group dedicated to the needy work-
ing class due to a distorted video.

President Jordan
V Johnson can provide
Fabulous Rides for those who
have imbibed too much, he
can't prevent his fellow SGers
from driving his agenda into
the ground.
Cabinet Secretary William
Sedgwick was pulled over for
drunken driving near the Ap-
plebee's on Northwest 13th
Street Tuesday night.
Perhaps he needs a crash
course in civic responsibil-
ity to keep him from plowing
into people who are just try-
ing to eat good in the neigh-
borhood.
We recognize that no-
body's perfect, but when
you're involved with govern-
ment, your demeanor should
be pretty close to it.
We're sure that Sedgwick
is a nice guy. His escapades,
however, are a slap in the face
to Johnson.
First off, drinking and


driving produces a danger-
ous cocktail of consequences.
It puts everybody at risk
when someone is intoxicated
behind the wheel.
Secondly, Sedgwick's ac-
tions undermine Johnson's
crusade against drunken driv-
ing by making it seem like he
can't even keep his coterie of
compatriots in line.
Third, Sedgwick failed
several sobriety tests, includ-
ing following a pen light and
standing on one leg. Who gets
that drunk on a Tuesday?
Johnson has made positive
steps in reducing the number
of DUIs among UF students.
It's unfortunate that his own
cabinet members can't follow
his good example.
Sedgwick will learn his
lesson, as he's bound to face
some serious consequences.
Let his fabulous ride into the
sunset serve as a reminder of
the consequences of drinking
and driving.

Column

Kanye promotes m
Kanye West and his enduring propensity to go off-
script at inopportune television moments seems
to have forced the entire mainstream media into a
state of apoplexy.
Revved up to full hysteric mode, journalists are waxing
poetic about the good old days and lamenting the death of
civility in American public culture.
Instead of linking West to inveterate yellers like Rep.
Joe Wilson (R-SC) and Serena Williams, maybe some in
professional media need to do a little research and right-
fully place "Yeezy" among thinkers like Plato and Con-
fucius. Maybe Plato, too, was a gay fish lost in a sea of
haters and sharks with his meritocratic Republic.
Taylor Swift is merely a vessel representing all that is
wrong in this society, according to a more subtle reading
of West's flagrant outburst. Her status as a country music
superstar only amplifies the need for more sensitive mark-
ers of cultural significance than pure popularity contests.
Numbers, you see, not only lie, but often do so in an egre-
gious manner.
Who among us is fit to criticize West for rightfully
pointing out aspects of our society that are worthy of sus-
picion? In fact, I feel utterly unworthy to even type his
name out, lest it be tarnished by our grubby attempts at
conceptualization.
K_nye W_st it is, then.
Perhaps those outside the realm of media who have
come forward with criticisms of K_nye also need examina-
tion for signs of possible counterfeit prestige. President Ba-
rack Obama jumped into the fray with his own off-the-cuff
remark about K_nye being a "jackass." Perhaps Obama,
like his predecessor, George Bush, simply doesn't care
about black people.
Obama, a winner of a nationwide popularity contest


eritocratic system
himself who knows a thing or two
about misspeaking, should prob-
ably just keep riding his wave of
public opinion until it crashes up
against the rocks of actual legisla-
tive process. Undeserving Obama
Tommy Maple has never forced Beyonc6 to do the
letters@alligatororg "Mike Myers face" and probably
never will.
Rising up from a devastating car wreck and slowly
climbing the ladder of success, K_nye W_st is a spectac-
ular, phoenix-like figure born amongst us mere mortals.
K_nye stormed the stage at the traditionally staid and dig-
nified MTV Video Music Awards and took it upon himself
to remind the Western media of the inescapable concept
of meritocracy.
Beneath these ironclad details lies another searing truth
that K_nye is correct. Having personally spent more
than 200 hours breaking down each frame of the "Single
Ladies" dance, I am proud to announce that it is the single
finest video ever made. If North Korea forces its people to
do this dance at their next Mass Games, the awe-inspiring
power of the dance itself would cause the geopolitical
axis to shift almost instantaneously. Some theorists have
opined that this hypothetical spectacle may in fact be the
actual triggering mechanism of the Mayan curse of 2012.
Though K_nye W_st himself flirts with the non-merito-
cratic ideology of race-based distinctions and often times
challenges the very bounds of rational thought, his rightful
place in the meritocracy is incontrovertible fact. Confucius
would surely recognize a true gentleman in the form of
K_nye, especially since he got that new leopard haircut.

munications. His column appears on Thursdays.

Pedestrians lowest on totem pole
Somebody needs write down the hierarchy

as well be me.
People on bicycles (who should be in the
bike lane anyway) don't have to yield to any-
body. People on skateboards have to yield to
cyclists.
Finally, people walking have to yield to
skaters. By just standing there, you're increas-

you can. So kindly, get out of the way.

Vaccination should be personal choice
Reading the editorial about Gardasil now
being required for female immigrants com-
pletelyblew my mind. I don't understand how
the government can do this and even begin to
think it's acceptable.
Gardasil is a non-essential vaccine, and
whether or not a woman gets inocculated
should be personal choice. I am one of those
people who personally decided, after research-
ing the topic, that I won't get the vaccination. I
can't even imagine the government telling me
I had to get it.
How can a country that supposedly re-


veres personal liberties and choice possibly
view this as acceptable? What's next? Not just
immigrants are required to have it, but every-
one?
Human papillomavirus is not a mass, dead-
ly epidemic. It's not even the swine flu it's
an STD. Additionally, the forms that Gardasil
prevents are all exclusively sexually transmit-
ted (i.e. can't be contracted through blood like
HIV/AIDS). Ta-da, prevention is easy.
Also, the vaccine is being required for girls
11 to 26. Eleven year olds? Really? As wrong
as it is, imposing the vaccine on women 18 to
26 is one thing. Imposing it on an 11-year-old
girl is something entirely different and a whole
new level of wrong.

University money wasted internally
The Robin Hood cartoon depicting Presi-
dent Bernie Machen is one of the best I have
ever seen in this newspaper. It's a rather hu-
morous way to touch on something so delicate
as the budget cuts.
In my opinion, the university should walk
away from reducing the number of faculty
and staff members and concentrate on spend-
ing its money more wisely.
There is a lot of money being wasted in-
ternally. I work with the university, and I see


many office supplies being wasted. There is a
recycling program, but I seriously believe that
we need to make use of other free resources,
like PDF files instead of using so much paper.
There are a lot of people who fear electronic
media, and this can be changed by providing
training for them.
Also, there is a lot of money being wasted
on long-distance phone calls, which are un-
necessary. Why doesn't the university use
something like VoIP in some offices?
I know these seem like minor changes, but
I was always taught that small things make
huge differences.

Protestors held inaccurate signs
As I was driving to the movies past The
Oaks Mall on Sept. 11, I saw a group of anti-
Islam protesters complete with "Islam is of the
Devil" T-shirts. The scene was appalling, and
the only consolation I found was that no one
honked for them or showed support.
Among the signs, I spotted two that seemed
out of place (even more out of place than the
idiotic anger of the intolerant). One said "Je-
sus Was Not a Liberal," and the other touted
"Forgiveness."
I'd like to point out that Jesus was, in fact, a
liberal, a socialist and arguably, a communist.


The Bible Belters who hate President Obama
and his "socialist" ideals fail to realize that
their hero was one of the original socialists.
Check out the "Sermon on the Mount" for
evidence.
I don't understand why at every religious
protest, politics has to get dragged into the
equation. Not only did these protesters have
an intolerant message of hatred, they were
completely wrong in what they were protest-
ing.
And about the "Forgiveness" sign: If you
want to send the message of forgiveness,
which is a great message, try not to have the
sign right next to an anti-Islam rally that is cen-
tered on not forgiving a culture of people for
what 19 individual extremists did.

Student scalpers disgrace Gator Nation
To everyone selling their ticket for more
than $100: Stop ripping off your fellow stu-
dents. Stop entering the lottery just to sell your

for Florida football than if Urban Meyer left

inconvenient happens to you this week.

Warped Tour movie shows festival's history, influence


By RICHARD IWANIK-MARQUES
avenue writer


The Vans Warped Tour has spent the better
part of the past two decades bringing summer
mosh pits, mohawks and mayhem.
North America's longest-running music fes-
tival, Warped, will be celebrating its 15th anni-
versaryat8 p.m. in theform of a two-hour movie
playingtonight atthe Regal Gainesville Cinema
14 on Archer Road. Tickets are $12.50.
The film, titled "Warped Tour 15th Anni-
versary Celebration," will take a look into the
tour's history and life, and will feature live per-
formances from 30H!3, Underoath, NOFX, The
All-American Rejects, The Aggrolites, Bad Re-
ligion, Ice-T, Katy Perry, Ozomatli, Pennywise,
The Decaydance All Stars, Rise Against and a
surprise appearance from blink-182.
The live portion of the film consists of per-
formances filmed at a charity event at Club
Nokia in Los Angeles on Sept. 6.
The footage from the concert was edited in
about seven days, Warped Tour founder Kevin


Lyman said.
The historical content of the film will feature
members of some of the most influential acts.
"I wanted to have a taste of the history from
bands like Bad Religion and Pennywise but still
cover that middle ground too with artists like
Underoath and Rise Against," he said.
Warped Tour, which began as a traveling
summer showcase of 16 punk bands, now fea-
tures more than 100 acts that range anywhere
from grind-core to gangster-rap.
"A lot of people think of Warped as a punk
rock tour, but if you dig through the lineups,
you'll see it is actually pretty eclectic," Lyman
said.
Lyman's tour, which started in 1995 as cel-
ebration of Southern California's skate culture,
has helped launch the careers of some of the
biggest names in music in the past 15 years,
presenting the then up-and-comers with their
first taste of a large-scale national touring ex-
perience.
"It's something that, through the years,
bands have played at the beginning of their ca-


reers," Lyman said.
"People usually think Bad Religion, NOFX
and Fall Out Boy are the types of success sto-
ries we have," he said.

"A lot of people think of warped as a
punk-rock tour, but if you dig though the
lineups, you'll see it is actually pretty
I I,. "
KEVIN LYMAN
warped tour founder



Although there are numerous punk bands
that managed to use Warped as a catapult to
successful careers, other notable acts that
hit it big following Warped include No Doubt,
Eminem, The Black Eyed Peas and most re-
cently, Paramore and Katy Perry.
Most of the bands on this year's Warped
Tour were in middle school listening to bands
like Bad Religion and NOFX when the tour be-
gan 15 years ago.


"It's definitely become second generation-
al," Lyman said.
He said they are startingto see parents who
went to Warped when they were younger come
back with their children.
"It's a great way to find a common ground
with their kids for some people. We never ex-
pected that, but if we can do it, it's kind of a
really cool bonus," Lyman said.
This film has essentially been in production
for the past 15 years but didn't really come to
fruition until recently.
Lyman said they started having serious dis-
cussions about doing a movie more than four
years ago.
With less than two weeks to film, edit and
distribute a full-length movie to more than 400
theaters around the country, this one-night
event is unlike anything Warped has done be-
fore, he said.
"It's pretty ambitious what we are trying to
do with this one, but even 15 years later, we're
still trying to push the envelope with Warped
and see what we can do," Lyman said.

Fashion weel brings big city feel


By ASHLEY McCREDIE
avenue writer

For the second time, Gainesville
Fashion Week has brought together
art, fashion, music, cocktails and food
for an unforgettable week.
GFW kicked off on Sept. 8 and
wrapped with a partySaturday atSpan-
nk. Four local boutiques, Calzatura,
Wolfgang, Etc. and Dahlia sent looks
from their stores down the runway,
and designers Natalie Kim and Bobby
K showcased their latest collections.
Boutique owners, designers and
the organizers were pleased with the
event and its 440 attendees.
"Turnout for the whole week was
great," said Kyle Cummings of (PRN-
THS), who works with Sharab Lounge.
"We packed Sharab out that first Tues-
day night, and it was the motivation for
the rest of the week."
The Calzatura Boutique's show was
full of mini dresses, chic casuals and
flowing hair. The show was topped off
with an '80s-inspired peacock jump-
suit.
The Wolfgang Boutique's show
mixed classic styles with the latest
trends like floral dresses, lace tights
and ruffled tops. They also had chic
menswear for the fall, includingskinny
jeans and bomber jackets.
Etc. Boutique's models came out
wearingcasual dresses with ruffles and
designer denim paired with fashion


tops and scarves. The show consisted
of many cute daytime looks but ended
with the perfect little black dress that
should be in everyone's closet.
Natalie Kim's show was sponsored
by Allure and showed off her '50s-
inspired Game-Day dresses. Models
strutted down the runway with Britney
Spears playing in the background.
Each dress was made to be unique,
whether it was by adding a tutu of tulle,
giant polka dots, ruffles or a sassy bow
in the back. The models also posed on
the runway with custom Gators cock-
tail glasses in hand.

"I think the bulk of the hype went
towards Bobby's show."
MATTHEW TURNER
Wolfgang owner



The looks were sassyand combined
knee-high boots and messy updos with
girly frocks to add a little edge. The fi-
nale piece was a green dress with a
train, resembling an alligator.
Dahlia's show had somethingfor ev-
eryone: ripped jeans with plaid shirts,
sexy black dresses and even a bright
blue Loeffler Randall swimsuit.
Bobby K wowed the crowd with
his "I'm In Love With a Robot" collec-
tion. The show began with a model
seductively dancing in a cage above
the crowd. Models sported everything


from hot pink and purple mini dresses
to black leotards with embellishments
around the shoulder, and a few men's
pieces were added in.
"I think the bulk of the hype went
towards Bobby's show," Wolfgang own-
er Matthew Turner said.
While clothes were the main at-
traction in the shows, it was hard to
miss the bold makeup and hairstyles.
Makeup came in all styles from '50s
cat eyes and red lipstick to electrify-
ing blue eyeliner, depending on the
show's inspiration. Some featured
hairstyles were sleek straight with
bows constructed of hair, tousled curls
and poufs. Sephora painted the faces,
and a different salon styled hair for
each show.
Besides the fashion shows, there
were art auctions, cocktail hours and
Gainesville participated in the global
event called Fashion's Night Out.
The art show/auction was orga-
nized by Society Promotions and all
benefits went toward the Eden Project,
an organization to help burdened pros-
titutes in China.
Many of the boutiques saw new
customers come in after the shows.
Overall, the week was a suc-
cess, and according to Cummings,
Gainesville can expect more weeks
like this one in the future.
"Fashion Week brought a big city
atmosphere to a small town like
Gainesville," he said.

Album shows band's experiences


By MARY MANCHESS
avenue writer

The members of Greenland is Melting do not want
people to think they're a couple of esoteric guys sitting
around, thinking deep thoughts all day long.
They aren't trying to convey a deep, dark message
with the use of metaphors or themes. If anything, they
just want to be honest and straightforward.
But for a couple of guys who weren't trying to be poet-
ic, they somehow managed to be in every aspect of their
new album, "Our Hearts are Gold, Our Grass is Blue."
The band will be releasingthe album tonight at8 p.m.
at the Orange & Brew. The show is free, and CDs will be
sold for $2. The Quadrophones and The Damn Wrights
will also be performing.
From the title and artwork to the lyrics and song
names, it seems like the band worked on it for a couple
of years. But, impressively enough, it only took the band
a little more than a year to put everything together.
"It's the good starting ground for what we actually
want it to sound like," said vocalist and banjo player
Karl Seltzer. "I think as far as musically, we have accom-
plished where we wanted to go because I think, and I
think everyone else in the band thinks, it's the best thing
we have done as a group. That is the least we could have
asked for in the CD."
While there isn't a central theme, the album is based
off of the band's experience on the road.
Bassist and vocalist Will Dueease describes it as "an
autobiography of a start-up band driving around, meet-
ing fantastic people and having a good time in different
cities and different states."
And the song ideas were not the only thing they got
from the road.
Seltzer and Dueease said the band had been on the
road for a couple of days and Shaun Pereira, who plays
guitar, trumpet and vocals, was doodling on a pair of
shoes to pass the time. While sketching, Pereira came
up with the saying "Our Hearts are Gold, Our Grass is
Blue."
"He said that and we all sat in silence for 30 sec-


onds and were like, 'Dude, that sounds awesome, that
is a really good album name,' and it stuck from there,"
Dueease said.
Aside from the title, Pereira also created the artwork
for the album, which was originally a watercolor painting
of a white owl surrounded by a group of black crows.
"It's great that we can keep everything in the band,"
Dueease said. "We don't have to outsource to any-
body."
Along with a great title and artwork, the songs are
pretty impressive as well, especially track five, "Every-
one Wants to Go to Heaven," and track six, "But No One
Wants to Die."
"It's sort of a traditional song that we picked up and
started playing just for fun, and we kind of added on a
whole beginning part to lead into it. Then we broke it up
into two separate songs," Dueease said. "It's an old civil
war death march, if I'm not mistaken. It's eerie and it's
beautiful, so it's fun to play."
With such a well-formed album, all GIM can hope for
is a good turnout at the show.
"This was written by all of us," Dueease said. "This is
the ground that we all found that we love."


'Mystery Team' guarantees laughs


By JON SILMAN
avenue writer

"Mystery Team" is the story of
three high school virgins stuck
as their 7-year-old Encyclopedia
Brown-type personalities. Kind of
like my life, but with actual cases
to solve and not just wishful think-
ing. The three friends ride match-
ing bikes and harass 6-year-olds.
In fact, they get in trouble for force-
fully removing a kid from the play-
ground and teaching him a lesson
about putting his fingers in things.
The mystery team has three mem-
bers. Donald Glover plays Jason. His
disguises usually include a varia-
tion of fake mustaches, and they
don't fool anyone, ever. D.C. Pierson
plays Duncan, the boy genius whose
knowledge is limited to what he
learned from reading "1001 Wacky
Facts." And Dominic Dierkes plays
Charlie, the world's strongest boy.
He's the dim-witted one who likes
to take his clothes off for no rea-
son and proclaim, "You smell like
my dad," when he smells alcohol.
The movie's shtick is the boys' in-
nocence against the cynicism of
a cruel, dark world. Even when a


girl asks them to solve the murder
of her parents, they approach it
with the same naivety they would a
case of a missing red bicycle. Kind
of like a party on its second keg,
this is where the real fun begins.
The boys follow a lead to a "gentle-
men's" club where they think they
have to act like sophisticated men to
gain entry, so they dress up in tails
and top hats. In order to prove they
are real detec-
tives, they need
to recover a sto-
\r\\ len ring off of a
suspect who, let's
just say, likes to
get handss" with
strippers (Who
doesn't?). The ring ends up in a full
toilet, and the world's smartest boy
ends up elbow deep in God knows
what.
The movie's luster lies in the sub-
tle, subdued comedictimingof its ac-
tors and some witty dialogue.
Lowbrow, crude and shocking, it's
everything you wanted in a film but
were too afraid to ask for. This is the
kind of film thatyour parents will hate.
This film is like the boy your grand-


mother warned would try to take off
your bra while he was kissing you.
It comes at you quick and smooth,
and before you know it, you're in
love. I said it, I love this movie.
"Mystery Team" was made by Der-
rick Comedy, the New York University
grads and YouTube sensations. For a
taste, look up "Dickmento," a "Me-
mento" parody, on YouTube.
The film was shot in lengthy se-
quences, which can make it feel a
bit drawn out at times. But the plot-
driven story moves at a brisk pace,
and the premise doesn't wear thin.
There are some notable cameos in
the film because some members
of the troupe have high-profile jobs
(Glover is a writer for "30 Rock").
"MysteryTeam" is genuinely and con-
sistently funny with fresh ideas and
some promising young actors. If they
continue to produce such consis-
tently entertaining material, you will
be hearing a lot more about these
actors in the days to come. I had the
honor of meeting the boy genius in
person (he's cool and laid-back) as
well as the director of the film at Re-
gal Cinemas 14, and they were very
genial in the 45 seconds we spoke.

Students spring pillow fight


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

11:29 a.m.: Turlington Plaza
buzzes with students; anxiety
builds for those who know
what is about to occur.
11:30 a.m.: The Century
Tower bells chime and a sin-
gle cry erupts: "Pillow fight!"
Dozens of students whip out
pillows from backpacks and
purses to form a color-strewn
blur.
11:32 a.m.: The fight sub-
sides, and the day continues as
usual. But for those brief two
minutes, a rare celebration took
place.
The pillow fight broke out
Wednesday on Turlington
Plaza between classes. Mem-
bers of Gainesville's chapter of
Flashmob planned the friendly
brawl last Tuesday.
They contacted almost 7,000
students by way of e-mail, Fa-
cebook and word of mouth,
group president Scott Paterson
said.


He estimates that 100 stu-
dents participated in the fight.
Students itched with antici-
pation as they glanced around
for hidden pillows as the min-
utes ticked down.
Carolina Lopez and Kelsey
Peck were worried that they
would be the only people to
show up.
"I thought nobody was go-
ing to do it because we came
and everyone was being really
sneaky," Lopez, a junior educa-
tion major, said.
During the fight, Lopez
pulled her pillow from her
sweater-covered basket, an ac-
cessory that Peck said made
Lopez look like Dorothy from
"The Wizard of Oz," and delved
into the heart of the mob.
Most students alternated be-
tween flinging their pillows at
their neighbors and hiding be-
hind their fluffy barricade.
"I went for offense, not de-
fense," said Michelle Curran,
a freshman advertising major.
"A lot of people were just duck-


ing and covering, but I was just
full-on smashing."
Even getting to the pillow
fight was a battle for Curran,
who sprinted from her public
speaking class in Rolfs Hall to
Turlington just in time for the
clash.
"Only at UF," she said.
Paterson, a senior advertis-
ing major, said the best part
about this particular event was
the low-cost aspect.
"Everyone has a pillow.
They're free, no cost involved,"
he said. "Just bring it, have fun.
It's a simple as that."
Paterson said flash mobs are
appealing because bystanders
are caught by surprise.
"A lot of people don't know
what's happening. It's just a
fun event. Everyone can relate
to it in some way," he said.
He said it is an event where
students feel like a part of a se-
cret club.
Paterson hopes to plan fu-
ture Flashmobs but does not
have any scheduled.


Fla. officials' texts to be public


By JIMMIE PAUL
Alligator Writer

From the campus level to the state level, trans-
parency has become a common theme.
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum an-
nounced a new policy Tuesday that will treat
government officials' Blackberry messages and
text messages as public record.
"The evolution of technology should be an as-
set, not an obstacle, to transparency and account-
ability," McCollum said in a press release. "This
policy will allow for both government efficiency
and more open government."
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
said she thinks the policy is a good idea.


Hanrahan said public business means public
records, no matter the form of communication,
adding that a lot of citizens
are confused about public re-
cords.
"If I texted my husband
and asked him to pick up the
kids, that's not the public's
business," she said. "But if I
texted him government infor-
Hanrahan nation, that's public record."
Other forms of electronic
communication that will be reviewed will in-
clude instant messaging, and Voice over Internet
Protocol, which allows people to use a cable con-
nection like a phone, according to the release.

* THE MARCH WILL TAKE PLACE
ON NOV. 8.

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

Gators March for Babies, an event
that raises money to help pregnant
mothers and the families of premature
babies, will kick off Thursday in the
Florida Gym from 5 to 7 p.m.
The march, which will take place
Nov. 8, was formerly known as Gator-
Walk, but changed its name this year to
mirror the campaign's national name,
March for Babies.
Kyle Croft, the external public rela-
tions director for the march, said the
fundraising goal for the march this
year is $100,000.
The event will feature speeches from
Shelley Meyer and Rob Davis, a UF law
student born prematurely.
It will also include live music from


local band Crazy By Association.
Croft said he grew up in Gainesville
and has participated in the march since
seventh grade.
He said volunteering with the march
has helped him to see the strain placed
on the families of premature babies.
"It makes it personal even though
I haven't experienced it firsthand," he
said.
Croft said the march
Local also focuses on help-
News ing women have healthy
pregnancies.
Lisa McCraw, the
Gators March for Babies director, said
the march is important because it seeks
to prevent babies from being born pre-
maturely in the future.
Students interested in participating
by themselves or with a team can can
register online by visiting www.gators-
marchforbabies.org.
Students can also register on com-
puters at the event.

Berry returns to The Swamp as anchor of Tennessee D

7. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@allIgator org

Tim Tebow has thrown 11 interceptions in his career.
Just one of those has been returned for a touchdown.
As a freshman in 2007, Tennessee safety Eric Berry picked
off a Tebow pass and returned it 96 yards for a score. It was
the third game of Berry's college career.
"I remember that play," Tebow said. "That was a good
play by him. And he made me miss (the tackle), too. That's
o pyrig te M material the worst part about it, to tell you the truth."
trial Florida still won the game 59-20, but Berry announced his

"You have tobe aware of his range and

"But it won't change anything we do."
Tebow The Volunteers (1-1) have a four-game
losing streak against the No.1 Gators (2-0)
and are coming off a 19-15 home loss to UCLA last week.
"We haven't proven ourselves," Berry told reporters in
a teleconference Tuesday. "We haven't done anything to
make anyone not put us (as underdogs). Until we do some-
thing about that, then maybe I can say something on that."
UT defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, 69, is the father
of the Tampa 2 defense, an adapted version of the Cover 2
defense that was made to fit the smaller, faster teams he had
with the Buccaneers in the NFL.

Revenge will come after halftime


It's hard enough to get Urban Meyer or
any other member of the Florida football
team to say anything about Lane Kiffin or
his remarks let alone get them to say what
they plan on doing as retaliation for Kiffin's
offseason comments.
But we all know it's on the Gators' mind,
and Meyer certainly has not forgot being
called a cheater by Kiffin in February. Or
when Kiffin said he can't wait to sing Rocky
Top all night long after the Volunteers beat
the Gators this year when he was first intro-
duced as head coach at Tennessee.
For now though, all UF is worried about
is winning in its conference opener on Satur-
day.
However, once the Gators have a com-
manding lead heading into halftime, their
mindsets are going to change.


S The first half is go-
ing to be all business,
and UF will jump out
to a large lead I'm
thinking somewhere in
the range of 35-3. The
Bobby Callovi second half is going to
Bobby's World be personal; it's going
bcallovi@alllgatororg to be about proving
to be about proving
point.
Meyer will send a message to other coach-
es saying if you plan on talking trash before
the game or trying to embarrass the Gators,
there will be consequences.
The most popular idea for Meyer to dis-
play his team's dominance over Tennessee is
by going out and dropping 100 points on the
Volunteers.

UF nears end of road trip


* THE GATORS ARE IN THE
MIDST OF 25 DAYS WITHOUT A
HOME MATCH.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alllgatororg

After the UF volleyball team edged
FSU in a five-set thriller on Aug. 31,
coach Mary Wise said she received
feedback from a number of fans saying
they couldn't wait to come back and
see another match in the O'Connell
Center.
Unfortunately for those in atten-
dance that night, they have had to
wait, and they'll have to hold out a
little while longer before the Gators
take the floor in the O'Dome again.
Since defeating FSU, No. 5 Florida
(6-1) has participated in tournaments
in Stockton, Calif., and Tampa and
won't return to its home court until


Sept. 25. UF will travel the final leg of
its nearly month-long road trip this
weekend, playing at Ole Miss and
Arkansas to kick off the Southeastern
Conference season.
"All of us would like to play at
home every single match, but it's not
always going to happen that way,"
junior setter Brynja Rodgers said. "Be-
ing on the road really challenges us,
and that's something
every team needs, is
to learn how to play
without the fans."
The 25-day pe-
Volleyball riod without a home
match is the Gators'
longest since the end of the 2003
season, when the eventual national
runners-up played in Columbia, S.C.,
Lexington, Ky., and even Puerto Rico
but never Gainesville from Nov.
9 to Dec. 4.

SA clip from an '80s Monday Night Football telecast is on the Internet where
Chris Collinsworth says: "I like girls that aren't too bright because you can trick
'em a little bit ... high school girls love me. Fourteen to eighteen, I'm a big star
with them. As soon as they mature, after they turn 18 years old, they start to fig-
ure it out." Ironically, Collinsworth looks like Dazed and Confused's Wooderson.


SThe Gators released their fall exhi-
bition schedule on Tuesday. UF will
participate in four tournaments and
a match against Duke in prepara-
tion for February's season opener.


* UF's winningest baseball coach Dave
Fuller passed away Tuesday at the age of
94. Fuller was at the helm from 1948-75
and finished with a record of 557-354-6. He

Haden: Berry


best defender


in country
By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstrl@alllgator org

Junior cornerback Joe Haden told the media
Wednesday that he thinks the best defensive play-
er in the country will be wearing orange in The
Swamp on Saturday, but not blue.
Haden said Tennessee safety Eric Berry is the
best defender in the nation, even better than Florida
linebacker Brandon Spikes.
"I love Spikes to death, but I
love Eric's game," Haden said.
"When we watch film when
we're about to play other SEC
teams that he has played, I love
watching him."
Haden met Berry through the
Haden Gators' own junior safety Major
Wright, who befriended Berry at
the 2007 U.S. Army All-American game.
Berry, who returned an interception 96 yards
for a touchdown last time the Volunteers were in
Gainesville, is Tennessee's second-leading tackler
through two games and recorded 12 interceptions
in his first two years at Tennessee.


Tennessee sponsors Heisman campaign


FOOTBALL, from page 18

Berry, the 2008 Southeastern Con-
ference defensive player of the year,
had 10 tackles last week and led a UT
defense that held the Bruins to just 186
yards of total offense and kept the Vol-
unteers within striking distance the
entire game.
"He's a really good football player,
so you want to know where he is," UF
offensive coordinator Steve Addazio
said. "But in the same breath, you've
got a play called right now. It kind of
is what it is. (But) obviously you have
a really good football player on that

field you have to account for."
Berry, nicknamed "The Fifth Di-
mension" by Volunteers fans, was a
consensus first-team All-American in
2008 and is a dark horse Heisman Tro-
phy candidate this year.
UT has invested $10,000 in pro-


While UF might be able to manage to score 100, I don't
think Meyer wants to risk injury to his starters by leaving
them on the field too long.
Others want him to punish Nu'Keese Richardson for
switching his commitment from the Gators to the Volun-
teers on National Signing Day.
Sure, that will let future commits know that if they plan
on changing their minds they better choose a school that
will not appear on the Gators' schedule any time soon, but
that doesn't directly hurt Kiffin and that's what they want
to do.
He can always go back to saving his second-half tim-
eouts for late in the fourth quarter like he did against
Georgia last year in retaliation for Mark Richt sending
his entire team on the field to celebrate the Bulldogs' first
touchdown against UF in 2007.
But Meyer is all about adding wrinkles to his offense, so


moving Berry this season, and for the
first time since Peyton Manning was a
senior in 1997, the school is sponsor-
ing a full-fledged Heisman campaign.
But despite his big-play ability, Berry
said he won't try and do it all himself
when the Volunteers make the trip to
The Swamp on Saturday.
"The main thing is staying focused
on our key and not get too distracted
by play fakes or guards pulling," Berry
said. "I have a certain role in this de-
fense, and that's what I'm going to do.
I'm going to play within my role ...
I'm not going to put this team in jeop-
ardy."


fans can expect a new comeback to add to his repertoire.
Even though Meyer will want to prove a point, he
wants to win more and won't let his bitterness towards
Kiffin prevent him from winning, which is why you will
have to stay until the second half to see his revenge.
It will be something that he can pass off as part of the
game plan like using the timeouts against Georgia, which
he said afterwards was to give Emmanuel Moody some
more carries.
So when the Gators get that 30- or 40-point lead late in
third quarter, Meyer will put on his "I'm the bigger man"
act and take out his starters.
It says to Kiffin, "It is not worth my time to listen to
what you say," yet it also puts Tennessee in the same cat-
egory as Charleston Southern and Troy: A second-rate
team that makes good game practice for UF's backups.
The game should be decided by halftime, but the sec-
ond half will still be worth watching just to see what Mey-
er chooses to do as his retaliation.

Mallet looks to stay hot vs UGA


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstrl@alllgator org

UF senior Tim Tebow's 197.95
quarterback rating is more than 20
points above his career average,
which is the highest for any signal
caller in the history of the Southeast-
ern Conference.
Arkansas redshirt sophomore
quarterback Ryan Mallet will do his
best to keep his one-game, 210.25 ca-
reer SEC efficiency above Tebow's
against Georgia in Fayetteville on Sat-
urday.
Mallet, who started three games at
Michigan as a freshman, transferred
to Arkansas after former West Virgin-
ia coach Rich Rodriguez brought his
spread offense to Ann Arbor.
The 6-foot-7 quarter-
Sback sat out last season
,7 and made his first start
as a Razorback against
Missouri State on Sept. 5.
Mallet flourished in coach Bobby
Petrino's pass-heavy system, com-
pleting 17 of 22 attempts for 309 yards
and a touchdown.
Petrino commended Mallet, who
came to Arkansas weighing more
than 260 pounds, for dropping to
238 pounds and feels that Mallet has
a chance to become one of the best
quarterbacks who has ever played in
his system.
"I've never coached a guy this tall
before and that has the arm strength
that he has," Petrino said. "I've been
happy with his progress."
EVERYBODY A CRITIC: Tennessee
coach Lane Kiffin and Georgia coach
Mark Richt commented on the heat
their respective quarterbacks, Jona-
than Crompton and Joe Cox, have
taken early on in the season.
Crompton threw three intercep-
tions in a loss to UCLA on Saturday,
and Cox has posted a 126.65 quar-
terback rating through his first two
games. Both of their teams are 1-1 on
the season.
Kiffin and Richt said they don't
believe quarterbacks, or players in
general, face any more criticism now
than they did 10 or 15 years ago, but
conceded that the Internet makes it

Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino thinks quarterback Ryan Mallett could
become one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in his system.


much easier for people to make their
opinions heard.
"You really don't have a lot of
times to read those things," Richt said.
"Now, I'm sure he's got people who
say, 'Hey Joe, did you hear about this
or that?' But it is pretty easy in season
to focus on the important things if you
choose to. Now, if you want to get on-
line and start reading that stuff, you
can really mess yourself up."

MUCH-NEEDED REST: Ole Miss coach


Houston Nutt said the vast majority
of his 31 players who suffered from
flu-like symptoms before the Sept. 6
meeting with Memphis are back to
100 percent.
The Rebels, who were off last
week, play Southeastern Louisiana
on Saturday and Nutt said his team
used its 13 off days to work on getting
healthy and conditioning.
Among those affected by the flu
were quarterback Jevan Snead and
star wide receiver Dexter McCluster.


All of Florida's 2008 losses came away from home


VOLLEYBALL, from page 18


All of Florida's losses last season were away from home
- one during nonconference play, two in the SEC season
and one in the NCAA Tournament and UF's only defeat
this season came at a neutral site against No. 3 Washington
last weekend in Tampa.
"You have to embrace the fact that other
fans are there literally cheering against you."
Brynja Rodgers
UFjunior setter

Sophomore setter Kelly Murphy said the Gators can't
afford any letdowns on the road, as it seems they draw
their opponents' best performances and toughest crowds
wherever they play.
To describe the intense competition UF faces on the
road every season, Wise referred to her squad as a "band
team."


"There would be teams that normally don't have a band
at their home matches. They will when Florida shows up,"
Wise said. "All promotions, all efforts go into having the
best crowd when Florida comes to town."
UF has already had to deal with harsh crowds and a
similar atmosphere this season against Pacific and South
Florida, but the Gators fed off the opposing fans' energy
and came away with wins in both matches.
"You have to embrace the fact that other fans are there
literally cheering against you," Rodgers said. "As an ath-
lete, it kind of provides a little bit of motivation. It's always
fun to go on a point rally, and the crowd has to be quiet
and sit in their seats for a little while."
Though it is convenient to be playing at UF and not
having to disrupt the players' class schedules or the team's
practice routine, the substantial amount of time spent in
transit provides an opportunity for the team to bond and
develop chemistry off the court.
"We spend a lot of time on the bus, so that helps, espe-
cially with new freshmen when we try to mix them in,"
Murphy said. "It definitely makes us a lot closer spending
like six hours on the bus every weekend."
