wearing a costume, no matter how controversial it may be. All the university can do is educate people, he said. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes wrote in an email that the university strives to make campus a welcoming environment for people of all races, cultures and backgrounds. Part of that is helping students understand that stereotypical costumes can be hurtful, even if unintentional, she said. Still, UF has made headlines in the past for controversial costumes. Last October, members of the UF fraternity Beta Theta Pi dressed up in blackface at an off-campus rockstars and rappers social, according to Alligator archives. The posted Instagram photo that was later deleted sparked controversy and a town hall meeting that aimed to solve cultural issues at UF. The fraternity later issued an apology. Hilliard-Nunn said dressing in blackface is a decision that could affect students futures. Thats your image down the line, she said. What if you want to run for governor of Florida? I dont want that type of person to represent me. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013LOCAL KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Staff Writerkgrentzer@alligator.orgA local organization is offering a pumpkin pickup service for downtownarea residents Friday to help reduce the waste from rotting jack-o-lanterns. Gainesville Compost, a bicycle-powered organization that aims to turn local restaurants and residents leftover food scraps from waste to food will contribute the pumpkins to its compost bins that help nourish a network of local gardens. The service is offered to those who live within a two-mile radius of downtown Gainesville. For $4, up to two pumpkins will be collected, and extra pumpkins can be collected for $2 each. Chris Cano, the organizations founder, will bike around the downtown area, collecting pumpkins from those who sign up at Cano said the service takes away the nuisance of cleaning up a rotting pumpkin and also puts the waste to a better purpose than taking up space in a landI think that its important to raise awareness about the problem of food waste and the local solution we offer, Cano said. Angela Neal, a 21-year-old UF business administration senior, said she would pay to compost a pumpkin, but she said many college students probably wouldnt realize the importance of reducing waste. College students dont have a lot of money and dont see the value, Neal said. However, she said she thinks families with steady incomes will be more likely to participate. Joseph Floyd, zero waste coordinaHalloween in general creates an excessive amount of waste and that this initiative is an effective way to bring attention to that issue. If you can afford the pumpkin, you should be able to afford the $4, Floyd said.Locals to compost pumpkins SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Staff Writer sstewart-muniz@alligator.orgMax Brooks, author of best-selling books The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, left the audience in a packed Reitz Union Rion Ballroom convulsing with laughter. Brooks talk satirized popular horror media, taking jabs at thrillers like Days Later and romantic comedies like Warm Bodies. Even his own Zombie Survival Guide wasnt safe, as he remarked on how the book was placed in bookstores humor section. about being killed and eaten by a zombie, ing. His social commentary extended to why most arent prepared to survive a zombie apocalypse, and he explained how everyone can better prepare themselves to face an onslaught of the undead. Throughout his speech, Brooks mocked student comments, with one girl in the audience being his go-to after she mentioned her zombie-killing weapon of choice was a halberd. Brooks said, Oh my god, punctuating each sentence she said. Accompanying Brooks talk was a variety of activities, including zombifying marshmallows with edible marker, practicing marshmallow archery with bows and a photobooth. After Brooks speech, a zombie costume contest was held, which lacked zombie costumes. A man dressed as Batmans sidekick Robin was declared the winner. Kaylee Willet, an 18-year-old theater production freshman, said Brooks was hysterical. I was surprised to hear his book wasnt intended to be in the humor section, she said. I thought that was really funny.Zombie author kills UF visit, champions preparationLubee bats paint, exercise, playThe more than 200 bats at the conservancy come from tropical climates, enjoy eating fruit and like daylight. They arent blind and dont use echolocation. The vancy, are among the largest in the world and can have wingspans of six feet. Out of the about 1,300 species of bats in the world, only three species are vampire bats. Pope said public misunderstanding species. That gives them a bad rap, he said. The Lubee bats dont live in dark caves, and they dont haunt houses. Their abode is a collection of octagonal enclosures bathed in sunlight. And they, in fact, paint pictures. One afternoon last week, Bilbo, a Maa small black wire cage hung on his enclosure. Inside the small cage was a blue canvas. Bilbo grabbed and nibbled at pieces of cantaloupe attached to the ends of long-handled paintbrushes. As Bilbo wiggled the brushes, the ends dipped in paint swept across the canvas, creating a picture reminiscent of the abstract art style. The art projects are one way researchers are trying to create a more positive perception of bats. The conservancy sells the paintings online for $25 and at the bat festival. Its a great education tool to help people see how they manipulate items, Salamone said. It really helps people see them in a new light. Like the young girl, most visitors end up realizing humans and bats arent so different after all. The Lubee bats live near Gainesville, some have to exercise regularly, and they all have a knack for fun. They like to play with toys, they like things that make noise, and they like to nitely like to give them a good life. BA TS, from page 1 COSTUME, from page 1UF tries to welcome allCommissioners have pulled supportaway, McCraney said. They would be coming from just a 500 mile radius or greater. McCraney said the material would be highly toxic. Currently, anything that goes into a red medical waste bag at the doctor is being burned, she said, including body parts, human remains from abortion clinics, all kinds of things that are cut off people. Due to an overwhelming negative community response, missioners have pulled support from the incinerator. They have sent the waste company a letter asking it to build the incinerator elsewhere. Suwannee County Commissioner Phil Oxendine said the letter was short and sweet but displayed a clear message. We prefer they look somewhere else, he said, but they still could buy property and be allowed to build here. Clyde Fleming, a Suwannee County commissioner, said even though the incinerator could have created jobs for the county, he couldnt sign off on a decision his residents didnt approve of. The people of Suwannee County spoke out against it and I felt uncomfortable, he said. Fleming said because the company has withdrawn its permit for the site, he thinks the odds of the company building in Suwannee are unlikely. Its not going to happen, as far as we know, he said. Joy Towles Ezell, a resident of neighboring Taylor County, said just because the permit has been refunded, she doesnt believe the company has moved past Suwannee. I dont think its over with yet, she said. Its not easy to stop a company You have to depend on neighbors to help locating in your community.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 IT WAS AT SHANDS. KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgUniversity Police arrested a Gainesville man Tuesday for making a bomb threat at UF Health Shands Hospital, the second incident of its kind to stir the UF campus in a little more than a month. John Adam Hill, of Gainesville, on charges of threatening to discharge a destructive device after he claimed he had a bomb on his person in the Shands Cancer Center, according to an arrest report. Just after midnight, Hill went to Shands to see his girlfriend, who was admitted to the hospital earlier that day, said UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber. Staff didnt allow Hill into the hospital for unknown reasons. Hill he had a bomb on him and could ignite it at any time, Barber said. Hill mentioned hed drank two beers. After security contacted police, tal and arrested Hill, Barber said. He was booked into the Alachua County Jail at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, where he remained as of press time in lieu of a $15,000 bond. after a UF student was arrested when police reported he made threats at a fraternity rush event. Despite the close proximity of the two incidents, Barber said bomb threats have been historically rare. Contrary to two events occurring in a relatively short amount of time, he said, its not something we see very often.Second recent UF bomb threat diffusedLOCAL ASHLEY CRANEAlligator Contributing WriterTRENTON The Old Gilchrist County Jail has not been owner Arlene Hale, 65, said its spider-laced walls are still very much alive with the nonliving. We are paranormal investigators, Hale said of the Old Gilchrist Jail Ghost Hunters. I knew the spirits were here. I could see them, and I could hear them . But thats not why I bought this place. Ive always liked weird things. So when a friend put an abandoned jail on the market, she jumped on the opportunity. During a recent tour, Michelle Masters, a local pharmacy technician and one of the ghost hunters, shined a dim red light through the cobwebbed corridors, explaining that each cell has a story. She struggled to open the loud gate into what the team calls Cell One. If you feel something touch your butt, thats Sam, she said. Sam loves women. Hale said she believes there must be hundreds of spirits trapped in the walls of the jail. I dont think weve met them all, but I know of several weve met, Hale said. They tell us their names with the EVPs. Hale said EVP is short for electronic voice phenomena, or unexplainable voices later found in electronic recordings. In addition to listening for electronic voice recordings, the and tools called dowsing rods to communicate and record paranormal activity. To communicate with ghosts, the team asks yes or no questions while one member holds the two roughly foot-long rods. Masters said if a spirit answers with no, the metal rods point straight. If yes, they cross. The last of the cells visited during the tour was Cell Eight, which still has the original, rusted-metal bunks suspended from its walls. Hale said after years of collecting data, the spirits have become comfortable with the team. We wont stay if we feel like they dont want us in there, she said. Upstairs from the top bunk in Cell Eight, a team member asked any spirit in the room to make itself known. The dowsing rods remained straight. The quiet black cell then resonated with the question, Are you angry that were in your room? The rods, visible by the red light of one of the members Cell Eight was quickly emptied of every ghost hunter.Ghost hunters use tech to reach out We wont stay if we feel like they dont want us in there.Arlene HaleOld Gilchrist County Jail owner

The only of masturbators and trolls, the stuff of substance hard to come by. But thats only one problem. For journalism to succeed, we need real journalists. training tomorrows journalists. It is training yesterdays. We are taught to be impartial mediators in a confusing world, shining light on truth and giving a voice to the voiceless. Most of those are perfect goals and shouldnt be dismissed. What should be is the idea of journalists as impartial mediators. Its impossible to be one. This impartiality often leads to the bad practice of false balance, one that plagues journalism today. Heres how: Imagine a world about to destroy itself because of a changing climate actually, we live in that world, so forget imagining it. Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a much-publicized report that climate change is happening, no ifs, ands or buts about it. I believe their exact words were warming of the climate system is unequivocal. That should have been written on the top of every paper in 72-point font. Big, glaring headlines, so no one could ignore the fact that were looking at doomsday in a few decades. Heres where false balancing comes in. While only 3 percent of climate scientists deny global warming, 18 percent of voices in Bloomberg News, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post denied climate change. Fox News, naturally, was much worse 69 percent of people interviewed denied it. Climate change is an issue in its manifestation. The evidence stems from science, but societys answer can only come through politics. This leads journalists to do tricks theyve been taught to maintain their image of objectivity. They try to balance an issue based in fact with opinions that arent. They are forced to ignore facts and treat climate change as any political issue. Journalists covering the issue reach out and quote people who should be deemed conspiracy theorists. While they may be searching for impartiality, a journalists job is to report facts, not perpetuate myths. Bias is inherent in the human experience we know the world only through our unique perception of it. So the second a journalist chooses which quote to use in a story, theyre including bias. Editorializing begins the moment a journalist decides which questions to ask a source or even how to focus their story. As a professional journalist, however, its taboo to express any opinion. Ive been personally contacted by a previous editor from the Tampa Bay Times because my Facebook postings were too opinionated. Of course, the editor was trying to ensure I wouldnt miss out on future career opportunities, but I believe in journalism as a search for truth. When you hide your bias behind this sense of impartiality, you rob readers of that truth. If they know where youre coming from, they can judge your work accordingly. Until then, Fox News and MSNBC will continue to be taken at face value and all thats given us is some good material for The Daily Show. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His column runs on Thursdays.Its Halloween: Have fun, and dont be rudeUnless your religion doesnt allow it or you hate fun, youre probably celebrating Halloween. Maybe you have the coolest costume ever perhaps a clever pun, an on-point topical reference, a cute couples getup or a skinbaring masterpiece. Every Halloween like clockwork, Internet pearl clutchers will lament the proliferation of slutty Halloween costumes. Nothing is safe, they say: Theres a sexy pizza costume, a sexy cheeseburger costume and even a sexy french fry costume coincidentally, all made by the same retailer. Look, if you want to be a sexy french fry, just go for it. You be a sexy french fry, and you be the sexiest french fry you can be. We saw the costume, and its super cute. If you want to be a sexy ear of corn, a sexy Angry Bird, a sexy Oompa Loompa or whatever, run with it because all of those costumes are hilarious. Its safe to say weve reached a point in our culture in which we can all laugh about the sexualization of everything from cartoon characters to fast-food items as Halloween costumes. The sexy costumes have transcended sexy and become a parody, and everyone is in on the joke. No one takes sexy pizza seriously, so calm down, Today show. Halloween is about having fun and escaping the mundane about binging on candy, carving pumpkins and reliving your childhood for a moment while those summer internship applications sit on the back burner for a few hours. Its not about shaming people for their costume choices unless theyre boring or unoriginal. In her Buzzfeed piece In Defense of Sexy Halloween Costumes, Kyra Richards, a contributor who dressed in Lil Kims and the purple seashell pastie wrote, At this point a sexy bunny or nurse or whatever is like the C-Span of costumes really boring! In addition, Halloween is not a free-for-all fat-shaming spree although a woman in North Dakota would have you think otherwise. A woman who called into a radio show in Fargo made headlines yesterday when she announced she would be withholding candy from children she deemed moderately obese. The woman, who refused to identify herself, told the radio station, I think its just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just cause all the other kids are doing it. No! That is not how you Halloween! It is, however, the best way to ensure your house will be TPd beyond recognition. of dog poop, lady. Bottom line: Its Halloween. Eat some Reeses Cups.

We make national news regularly, we surrender the thought of good hair days to humidity, and we arent exactly on the way to any other state. Its no wonder music artists, like seasons with the exception of summer, avoid Florida. But by some pre-Thanksgiving miracle, new music festival Coastline will bring alternative acts Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, Surfer Blood and other indie darlings to Tampa on Nov. 9 and West Palm Beach on Nov. 10. Tickets are still available online and range from $25 to $40. On Friday, the prices will rise to $30 for lawn seats and $45 for reserved seats. brews, a tent where locals will showcase their art and a food truck area with selections ranging from tacos to barbecue to Mediterranean. This week, the Avenue chatted with members from three of the headlining acts.Where we belong: Passion Pit closing 2013 with Coastline Festival stopsCHLOE FINCHAvenue WriterAs Passion Pit wraps up its 2013 touring stops, the Avenue spoke with keyboardist and guitar player Ian Hultquist before the bands trip to South Florida as Coastlines headline act. Q: Where does Passion Pit stand in the music industrys current obsession with singles and overnight hits?Courtesy to the Alligator Passion Pit will be performing at Coastline Festival in Tampa on Nov. 9 and in West Palm Beach on Nov. 10. The band performed at the Stephen C. OConnell Center in Gainesville last Fall. the Avenue chats up Coastline Festival headliners EMILY CARDINALI and LAUREN FLANNERYAvenue WritersFest, an annual punk music festival, has ed with a Pre-Fest in Ybor City on Tuesday. The festival has about 400 bands on its lineup nearly 100 more than last year. Starting on Halloween, Fest 12 will be the longest running yet, with more than 2,500 people expected to attend. I think if you live in this town, even if you arent into the music, you know Fest is here, said event organizer Tony Weinbender. When he saw this years weekend included Halloween, he decided to extend the festival to four days. Bands will perform in 12 downtown venues, including the Florida Theater, the Atlantic and the Civic Media Center. Costumes are encouraged for the Halloween weekend. Passes for Fest are still available and can be purchased at registration at the Holiday Inn. A four-day Fest pass costs $150. Walkup tickets for individual venues range between $10 and $25. Although it is referred to as a punk music festival, Weinbender, 37, stresses that there are too many types of music available at Fest to be pigeonholed, and a common thread among bands is that most are on independent labels. Its an amazing showcase of the DIY music culture, he said. Over the years, Fest has brought bands like Streetlight Manifesto, Matt & Kim, Against Me, Frank Turner and Paint It Black to Gainesville. Many dont realize that there is literally something for everyone, said Austin Amodt, a 21-year-old UF history senior. Some of my friends think of Fest as the PBR-drinking punks, but these stereotypes die hard, he said. As a member of an IFC fraternity who is currently applying to law schools, I may not appear as the stereotypical Fest goer, but this just shows the diverThe fact that Fest has grown so big has more than just punk fans excited. Rockeys Dueling Piano Bar will feature comedians on Saturday and Sunday. Kyle Kinane will be the headlining comic, and 17 other comedians are scheduled to perform. For more than a decade, Weinbender has seen Fest mature and become a yearly tradition for some people. He estimates Fest has a core of about 1,000 who show up every year to Gainesville to stay the weekend and to watch bands. Ana Fajardo, a UF public relations junior, said she enjoys Fest because she gets to see friends from out of town. We can be smelly and crusty and spend all our money on merch together, she said. As word about Fest spread overseas, music lovers began coming from as far as Brazil, Japan and South Africa. Last year, 17 percent of attendees traveled from outside the United States. Some Fests ago, a wedding party of 20 from Scotland visited Anthem Tattoo Parlor for Fest tattoos. The couple then got married at No Idea Records, the main sponsor of Fest, said Mike Salay, owner of Anthem Tattoo. The No Idea stress face logo is a popular Fest souvenir. This year, there are 25 to 50 designs Festers can get tattooed for the shops minimum price of $50. The couple from Scotland are coming back for Fest this year with another tattoo appointment at Anthem. I think Fest fans, honestly, are just really good music fans, Weinbender said. They want to support these artists. They want to support this scene.Fest grows with more bands, attendees and volunteers music SEE CO ASTLINE, P A GE 10


THE SHOW TIES TOGETHER HOUSE PARTIES AND SKETCH COMEDY. CHLOE FINCHAvenue WriterWorkaholics and Pitch Perfect star Adam Devine said comedy has always come naturally. I have a weird, big, dumb face that can move in all sorts of different directions, he said in a phone interview. I think that sort of helps me out. Devine is bringing his signature s**t-eating grin to Thursdays at 12:30 a.m. on Comedy Central with his new show, Adam Devines House Party. The show is framed as a standup showcase featuring up-and-coming comics mixed with Devines own brand of sketch comedy, with all the raunch and saltiness wed expect from a Workaholics star. The premise of the show revolves around Devine as he hosts a stand-up showcase in a Hollywood mansion with a massive party budget provided by Comedy Central. The show will also feature live performances from indie bands Trash Talk and Palma Violets. Devine said the show is partly based on the wild house parties he threw with his felIts kind of nice if you can just get a giant Lights and get wicked, he said. House parties, he said, are right up his alley. He prefers them over the hip L.A. bar scene, where $15 drinks the size of thimbles and pretentious fedora-wearing bartenders are commonplace. [The show is] just sort of a conglomeration of all the crazy house parties Ive been closet, he said. Devine said he wanted to frame the show in a way that would allow the viewers to see more of the stand-up comedians there are three stand-up acts per episode outside of their solo performances. The comics who perform stand-up also make appearances in the party-scene sketches. And not to worry, Workaholics fans his costars from the show that launched Devines career will be making cameos later in the season, although he maintained that House Party is his own side project indeThis is sort of my thing I was doing outside of the group, he said. I didnt want it to be too meta like, a behind-the-scenes of Workaholics. The show, with its unique structure of stand-up mixed with sketch comedy, is a risky off, and fans of old-school Comedy Central will rejoice the return of stand-up by newer comics. I hope its the tightest of b-holes, he said. 8, ALLIGATOR Courtesy to the AlligatorAdam Devines new Comedy Central series, Adam Devines House Party, airs Thursday at 12:30 a.m. He hosts a stand-up showcase.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue WriterDont be surprised if you havent noticed the new ads on Instagram. The company is being very cautious about how they introduce them to the public. at the beginning of the month, but a week ago. The ads almost look like any other posts that would appear on your feed. They stick to the square format, and they are artistic and attractive. The main difference is a sponsored label and a blue-arrow icon replacing the timestamp that normally appears in the top-right corner of an image. The company is taking it slow initiating its new revenue stream and is only allowing a few trusted brands to post ads at this time, including Levis, Ben & Jerrys, Adidas and Burberry, brands that already have Instagram accounts. Its no wonder why the photo-sharing app would want to incorporate ads. The free application is used by 18 percent of cellphone owners, according to the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project. And nearly half of cellphone owners ages 18 to 29 use Instagram. That means if you walk around campus them are likely to use the app. However, only 18 percent of 30to 49-year-olds and 6 percent of 50to 64-year-olds are Instagram users. So if advertisers want to target millennials, Instagram is the platform for them. However, if millennials arent its demographic, the ad team should probably think outside the square. Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist, said he thinks Instagram has begun to include ads because it is owned by Facebook, and Facebook is beholden to its shareholders. Thats their duty and responsibility to earn revenue, so practically speaking, they had to do something at some point to drive some revenue, Floyd said. Like its parent company, Instagram allows users to hide individual ads and give feedback about why they dont like them. Instagrams approach to advertising has been very different from Facebooks, which primarily uses stock-photo promotions. However, 19-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore Tanisha Bennet said the ads similarity to other Instagram content is confusing because she doesnt follow those accounts on her feed. Though Bennet thinks the ads are cute, she said she liked that Instagram used to be a break from advertising. Though the ad launch is limited to the U.S. now, eventually, all users Theres no escaping it.App does #instagood job fitting ads into personal feeds insta


10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 tThis column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit Barnes Dear Friend, You dont need to name something thats already attached to you. You see your boobs every day, and you will never need a name to address them by. Theyre just two lumps of fat that sit on your chest, and theres already a word for them its boobs. You might as well name your knee caps or your weenis if youre going to name your boobs. The same goes for penises. Dont ever name your manhood or let anyone else name it. That thing isnt some pet rock its a functioning piece of equipment, and naming it Stone Cold Steve Austin or the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man wont make it any manlier. Dear Friend, You dont necessarily need alcohol to talk to him, but sweet booze always makes talking to a crush a lot easier. I only advise that the both of you dont go overboard. The purpose is to take the edge off, not to end up doing belly shots off of each other. Also, I dont know if you have experienced what happens when whiskey d--k and whiskey p---y come together, but its kind of like trying to push Play-Doh into a wall. Avoid that, and just be yourself. Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Breaks are a cop-out. Its over, but neither of you will make the effort to end it. If one of vague word means that your friends will start to act like your relationship is already over because everyone on earth seems to know youre single except for you. Its kind of like Joseph Stalin being in limbo. Sure, hes not in heaven, and hes not in hell, but that afterlife elevator is only going one way, and thats down. A break is just a half-ass breakup. Matt & Kim, Surfer Blood and Passion Pit excited to play A: I think its made things hard for bands like us. We have popular songs but were not Rihanna. Im still really interested in it, though. Im curious about what makes a Ke$ha or Rihanna song so magical. Q: Frontman Michael Angelakos made a pretty big decision recently and suspended his Twitter. He told the Salt Lake Tribune that the current norm of musicians connecting with their fans through social media demysmunicate through his music. What are your thoughts on that? A: I agree with it to a certain extent, but I also think you just have to be stronger. You seconds and not share your entire life on it. I enjoy having it, and Ive made a lot of connections through it. Q: live without while touring? A: My laptop, an acoustic guitar, my iPhone I can get by pretty well with those three. As long as I have something to work on and something therapeutic to keep me calm, Im pretty happy.Matt & Kim talks weather, Swampfest and getting wildCOLLEEN WRIGHTAvenue WriterInterview with Matt from Matt & Kim: Q: How do you feel about the upcoming Coastline Festival? A: Im psyched! Its been a minute since we were in Florida this year. We have been but like well go through Florida and do I feel like theres a certain amount of getting crazy that happens, which is exactly what I love during the show. Q: What do you like best about touring in Florida? A: Were a band that makes a lot of sense in places where theres sunshine and people are active and like to get wild. Sometimes when we go somewhere darker and colder like the northern UK, it doesnt make as much sense for our band. So going somewhere south like that is something that works with our band: People just wildin out. Q: How do you stay so energetic during your shows? A: Theres certain days where you have an whatnot, but were on stage for an hour out of the day or just around that, and theres 23 other hours in the day when were not. And I feel like that one hour when you get out there and theres an audience thats excited to see you, it immediately pops me out of whatever sort of funk Im in. I dont know how some bands look so bored on stage because its fun and its exciting, and the other bands look like theyre taking a nap while theyre playing. And for us, its seeing people who are excited to hear this music that you wrote, and I dont know, it always gets us exhausted. Q: How is Matt & Kim going to leave their A: I hope that we leave our mark in just people walking away and saying, That was one of the funnest sets Ive seen. I always say that were always jumping around and whatnot, and we always make mistakes because were human and whatnot, but I think that just the energy of having fun and being involved its what carries us through it all, and its what carries the audience through it all, and I think if people can leave and say, I had so much fun. You dont even have to know our songs its not about that. We put all sorts of other pieces of other songs and stuff like that, and yeah, thats the bottom line: to have fun. Q: You guys were scheduled to play at UFs Swampfest this past July, but it was canceled due to lightning. So how can UF fans get their Matt & Kim dose? A: That was so sad that day. We were right there. We did the soundcheck, and all the volunteers were really cool. And we had set everything up, and we were waiting, and that storm came in, and they said the policy about the lightning, and every half an hour, they had to reset the clock, and we just kept hoping it would stop. The worst-case scenario is not being able to play. Thats the whole reason we do all the traveling, and thats the whole reason people come out, and thats the whole reason it all happens. We were so frustrated we ended up hanging out for a while and taking pictures with a lot of wet people who stood out there in the rain. Were so sorry it hope that whoever can make it does make it. folks that tried to be at that. Q: Whats next for Matt & Kim? A: of the year. They might be two of the last shows before we take a break to write some new music. Were home for a while, which is weird, because weve been on the road for more than half the days out of the year, sort of every weekend. I feel all warmed up just for Hometown boys Surfer Blood return to roots with CoastlineMARJORIE NUNEZAvenue WriterInterview with bass guitarist Kevin Williams: Q: When you were approached about the festival, how did you guys decide you were going to play at Coastline? A: We immediately said yes. Its really exciting to see a cool music festival happening in South Florida. I havent really seen a whole lot in the way of a festival drawing a lot of really large out-of-town bands to South Florida in a while, at least for the style of music that we like. So its really cool, and it blew our minds to be able to play at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. I still remember Q: Tell me a little bit about the cover art of Pythons. A: The cover art kind of manifested itself over a period of time. This idea of a young of being that young, and its an age where you see the world kind of differently than the world sees you, where you feel invincible, but youre still a young little, scrawny kid. This cant to the world just kind of started hitting a note with us. Its just the sense, the idea, of selfperception versus outside youthfulness. Q: How do you think peoples perception of Surfer Blood has changed from the time now? A: Weve had a lot of people say that. Obviously, (Pythons) is more polished because Classics and Astro Coast were pretty much entirely home recorded in JPs (frontman John Paul Pitts) apartment. It still essentially was recording, it just was in a tricked-out home studio, nothing like a proper studio like when we went to EastWest Studios for Pythons, and we had the producer Gil Norton. Q: I read in an interview that Gil Norton really pushed you guys out of your comfort zone. A: lish parts of the songs a little bit more. He would speak almost in riddles sometimes. (guitarist Thomas Fekete) would play this riff, what he was talking about, but I guess that was part of the fun. That was pushing us out of our comfort zone. Q: What can people expect for you guys to play at Coastline? A: Its always tricky. Ideally, wed love to play our full-length set that we play at our headlining shows every night, but with a festival, its a little more of a stripped-down set, just by the nature of music festivals. We try to start out strong but still keep the emotional numbers in there and try to balance it out. We also try to keep the deeper tracks like Catholic Pagans and crowd favorites that are not necessarily the immediate pop songs but band favorites as well. We try to keep it well-balanced.

The Florida training staff saw Frazier exhibiting symptoms of mono and decided to test him again. This time, the tests were positive. tile illness and will miss Floridas exhibition game against Florida Southern on Friday night in the OConnell Center, the team announced Wednesday. He is the second Florida player in as many years to contract mononucleosis. Prior to the be-SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanTodd Gurley is back for the Bulldogs. After missing three games with a sprained ankle suffered in the second quarter of Georgias 44-41 victory against LSU on Sept. 28, Gurley is expected to be ready to face Florida at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Jacksonville. He would help any offense obviously he helps theirs coming back with the other weapons around him, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. Theyre dangerous. We understand the challenge ahead of us, and we have great respect for him. Gurleys return bolsters a Georgia offense that enters the game sixth in the Southeastern Conference in scoring and total offense. Prior to being injured, the 6-foot-1, 232-pound sophomore ran for 154 yards in a loss to Clemson and 132 yards in a win against South Carolina. He added 73 yards on eight carries in Hes a dynamic player, Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said. Hopefully, hes 100 percent and we can get him some space. Georgia (4-3, 3-2 SEC) was successful in opening holes for Gurley during a 17-9 win against Florida (4-3, 3-2) last season. He became the only running back to eclipse the 100-yard mark against the Gators in 2012 with a 27-carry, 118-yard performance. Gurley added a touchdown He wasnt going to miss this game, linebacker Michael Taylor said. I could tell you that from, if I was even in Wisconsin somewhere, I could tell you he wasnt going to miss this game. Gurleys return is met by the return of Sam linebacker Ronald Powell (ankle) and defensive lineman Damien Jacobs (head injury), who each sat out Floridas 36-17 loss to Missouri. While missing Powell and Jacobs, as well as Dominique Easley, who is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL, the Gators allowed the Tigers to accumulate 500 yards of total offense. Taylor said the breakdown of Floridas defense was a one-time thing, and the redshirt sophomore linebacker guaran-David C.

Running back to return against Gators MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoIn Taylor Burkes past two seasons as the starting goalkeeper, she has not faced much of a challenge from Georgia strikers. In 2012, Burke spent about 79 minutes in Floridas goal and saw zero action. The Bulldogs failed to take any shots until then-freshman Valerie Tysinger subbed in for Burke with 10 minutes left on the clock. In 2011, Florida faced Georgia twice: once in the regular round of the 2011 Southeastern Conference Tournament. Between both games, Georgia had none. Both games ended with a Florida shutout victory. Nearing the end of her third regular season as a Gator, Burke has gotten even better as the last line of defense. When No. 6 Florida (14-3-1, 8-2 SEC) takes on Georgia (12-5-1, 5-4-1 SEC) in Athens, Ga., tonight at 6:30, the Gators can put trust in Burke and the back line to close out the regular season on a high note. Shes gotten a lot better with her communication, coach Becky Burleigh said. Her strengths have always been her kicking game; shes very good with her feet. I think she continues to develop as a player for us. We expect a lot of our goalkeepers too because they basically see the whole The Gators head on the road with six straight shutouts against SEC opponents, giving Burke seven solo shutouts this season and 22 solo shutouts in her career.

The Bulldogs are 7-3 when playing at home, and they pulled off two consecutive road wins last weekend: a 2-1 victory against LSU and a 1-0 win against Arkansas. Florida leads the all-time series with Georgia 24-2-1, with the Gators only two losses coming on the road. Burleigh said the Georgia matchup will be a game that puts emphasis on maintaining possession. They play similarly to us in that they try to keep it a little bit, Burleigh said. Their attack is pretty dangerous. Florida is tied for the top spot in the league with Texas A&M, while Georgia is tied for sixth with LSU. The Gators are looking to claim their second consecutive SEC regular season title, needing a win tonight to at least get a share of the it. Florida has won the regular season crown in six of the past seven seasons. This big step is left, Burleigh said. We cant overlook anything. Georgia is a very good team. They are much improved and not only are they much improved, but I just think theyre right now as well. Its not an easy road for us to get there. Two Gators honored: Florida center backs Karina Gutsche and Christen Westphal were named to Top Drawer Soccers National Team of the Week after the Gators notched two shutouts against Tennessee and Texas A&M during the weekend. The duo has started every match this season and leads the team in average minutes per match. Westphal averages 89.2 minutes and Gutsche clocks in with 87.7. It feels great, Gutsche said. I think weve been working really hard together, and I think its paying off that we get that recognition. ginning of the 2012-13 season, center Patric Young dealt with the viral infection during the summer. Mono commonly causes fever, sore throat and fatigue and is spread through saliva, according to the Mayo Clinic. Last season, Frazier was UFs best three-point shooter with a 46.8 percent clip from behind the arc. The Tampa native averaged 5.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game coming off the bench. Frazier projected to be a starter for Florida to begin the season, but he now appears doubtful for Floridas season opener against North Florida on Nov. 8. UF enters that game with a thin backcourt, as it will not have point guard Scottie Wilbekin available. number of games to begin the year due to suspension. Rutgers transfer guard Eli Carter (leg) is rehabbing a leg injury. Sophomore swingman DeVon Walker, who decided last week he would play this season and not redshooting guard alongside freshman point guard Kasey Hill in the backcourt. Sophomore guard Dillon Graham, who, like Walker, also rarely played last year, could also see more minutes come his way in the backcourt rotation because of Fraziers absence. Forward commits to UF: Coach Billy Donovans Class of 2014 received a boost Wednesday with the Robinson, the No. 20 recruit in the class according to Robinson verbally committed to Florida over Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Indiana during a press conference at his high school, Christchurch (Va.) School, on Wednesday afternoon. He joins four-star guards Brandone Francis, Chris Chiozza and one-handed walk-on guard Zach Hodskins in UFs 2014 recruiting class. Robinson is only UFs second 2004, when Corey Brewer, a Portland, Tenn., native, chose Florida. Robinson visited UF on Oct. 12 and came away impressed. I really connected with coach Donovan, Robinson told ESPN. He gets straight to the point, and I need that and I like that. I really felt I could trust him. The lanky Robinson, who is 6-foot-8 and weighs 180 pounds, thrives in transition, has range as a shooter and can defend multiple positions thanks to his athleticism. With Patric Young, Casey Prather and Will Yeguete three key cogs in the frontcourt graduating after this season the addition of Robinson should help UF fortify its depth in 2014-15. teed Georgia would not enjoy similar success. If theyre trying to run the ball, we want to stop it, Taylor said. If they want to throw the ball, and even if they do get some completions, we want to get them guys on the ground. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murleys return. The senior has struggled against the Gators in his career. Seven of Murrays 38 interceptions have come in three games against UF, but he will not be asked to make as many plays with Gurley back. He just adds so much to the offense and the run game, obviously, Murray said of Gurley. When hes running guys over and stiff-arming guys, that just pumps everyone up. Another Gator injured: D.J. Humphries is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after suffering a sprained MCL during practice Monday, coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday on the SEC coaches media teleconference. With Humphries out, Muschamp said Tyler Moore would start at left tackle against Georgia, and Trenton Brown would start at right tackle. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffTaylor Burke kicks the ball during Floridas 2-0 victory against Texas A&M on Sunday at James G.
