On an all-carb
diet? Can’t eat Taco Bell? Luckily for you, the greater Columbia area has
noodles galore with unique, national and international influence — and all for
under $15. The options are endless, so grab your forks and
"It’s about power. It’s about precision." — these are the words Shannon Rike Henry teaches her Self Defense for Women class. It’s not just about physical practice. It’s about the mental practice — being aware of your surroundings.
Fans of The Rocky Horror Show: You can stop here. Trustus Theatre has tickets for students at $25 apiece, showing through Nov. 5. Dig your black corsets and fishnet tights out of your closet and get ready to give yourself over to absolute pleasure.
Let’s be honest: The winters in Carolina don’t often get too severe, so as far as winter dishes go, you’ll get more mileage out of a hearty recipe that you can still enjoy in the spring or summer. Tom kha gai (chicken coconut soup) fits this description to a T. A traditional Thai soup made with coconut milk and chicken, paired with salapao (Thai steamed buns) it makes a satisfyingly filling winter meal you can still eat when you feel the sun on your face.
Surreal is the only word I can think of to describe what I’m feeling as I sit in the G&B office and write this letter. I spent my sophomore year contributing to G&B, and it helped me find my direction as a writer. I poured myself into the magazine my junior year as the articles editor, and it instilled me with skills and knowledge that I never would have gotten from the classroom. Now, more than one month into my senior year and my tenure as editor-in-chief, I’m wondering what the remaining months will bring me.
Soft purple kisses
Among the neon lights and appropriately
loud radio remixes filling The Capital Club, there’s a familiar feeling. Patrons sip
drinks and quiet conversations spread from the bar to the backroom. It’s a
feeling I’ve felt in every gay bar in Columbia, whether it’s PT’s 1109 or The L
Word. However, there is something different about the air in each as of late.
The same sociability is there, but the attack on the queer community that
occurred on June 12 has left a slight tension in the atmosphere.
A loaded pistol. A
condom wrapper. Two-hundred years’ worth of bottle caps. Skin lightener. Three
pet burials. The intact base of an incandescent lightbulb. Children’s toys.
Bones. The relics of past lives don’t just remove themselves from the ground. That’s Jakob Crockett’s job.
The problem was, Debbie didn’t want to be a skank.
A 200 percent increase in the number of students hospitalized for alcohol consumption does two things: makes me feel sorry for the ER nurses at Palmetto Baptist and scares the ever-loving hell out of me. If freshmen are out there hurting themselves in mass quantities, and we’re all watching it happen, then we are all screwing up in a major way.
Do you, like me, often find yourself trapped in your own head? Do you begin one thought and, before you know it, find yourself above the Earth somewhere, in high-altitude theoretical space?
The drive down Taylor Street is lined with
strip malls, grimy Chinese restaurants, and discount tobacco stores. It’s also
the home of the oldest public housing community in Columbia, and one of the
oldest in the nation. Built
during the New Deal 70 years ago, Gonzales Gardens sits at the corner of
Two Notch Road and Forest Drive. It is a cluster of long brick
buildings and grassy open spaces with clotheslines strung between back doors
and small gardens potted on the steps.
If you were one of the thousands of rainbow-clad marchers who filled Main Street in early September, you may have already heard Professor Ed Madden read his poem, “At the corner of Lady and Main.” If you weren’t lucky enough to attend Famously Hot SC Pride, the poem is recreated on his website, columbiapoet.org. Just remember — this poem, which weaves soliloquy with conversation and addresses the complicated relationship of Columbia-of-the-present with Columbia-of-the-past, was written as a celebration. It is best read not alone in a classroom, but aloud to a broad, joyous crowd.
Zoe Dale has been creating jewelry since she was nine. Now in her senior year, Dale’s passion for meaningful jewelry has only grown. Creativity is a lifelong component of the former art major’s personality. Now, she cites frustration with the lack of quality jewelry in stores as her push to turn something she had always viewed as a hobby into a business.
It was an early, dreary morning, but senior geography and marine science double major Jory Fleming was anything but gloomy. At the first mention of research, his eyes lit up, and he began to expound on his sea of knowledge (and knowledge of the sea).
It’s a crisp, fall morning and midterms are looming. You decide a study session is in order, so you pack
up your books, wrap up in your favorite scarf and grab a cup of coffee and
a warm pastry from one of Columbia’s local bakeries.
The rainfall from the previous day had cleared away, leaving the morning sky a brilliant blue and the weather perfect for a walk along Greene Street. Though stands of produce from the Farmer’s Market lined either side, I hadn’t come to for them today. Rather, like many already gathered along the road, I’d come for the dogs.
