Eleven Eleven, Pillsbury & The Bloody Lovelies — weak lyrics, kick-ass beats

"Head" is the type of album that sounds best when you listen to all of the songs in a row. Eleven Eleven's latest effort has not one 'stand-out' or 'single-worthy' track but maybe that is part of their creative plan. The Philadelphia area band can't plan on pleasing the masses with an album that goes on and on like a dreary, cold rainy day.

Madonna, JT look hot but Christina, as usual, does not

At most award shows, the eclectic taste and trendy style of the stars dominate the results of the actual award show. However, at the 2004 Grammy Awards, most of the fashion choices were simple and even conservative. Grammy award winner Christina Aguilera stood out for her fashion choices, remaining consistent with her poor outfit choices in the past.

Crystal or Parkside — which diner is better?

If you're from New Jersey, chances are you have a diner. Anyone that heralds from this amazing state can give an answer to the famous question, "What's your diner?" While in South Jersey, I live closest to the Starview Diner but prefer the Philly Diner. College and high school students gather in diners across the state to catch up with friends, hang out over a cheap cup of coffee or to nurse a hangover.

Moore’s films get more ‘Coverage’ than her music

In Mandy Moore's newest album, "Coverage," she leaves all the writing to the more capable hands of musicians such as Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, Debbie Harry, Elton John and Carole King. Mandy Moore has had medial success since her debut with "Candy" and has not been able to find her niche in the world of music.

Janet’s Super Bowl Special

The New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers played some great football during Sunday night's Super Bowl XXXVIII, but all anyone can seem to talk about is Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's jaw-dropping half-time performance. At the end of the "Rock your body" duet when Timberlake sings, "Better have you naked by the end of this song," Timberlake 'accidently' ripped off a piece of Janet's outfit, revealing her breast to 89 million viewers around the world.

To prep or not to prep, that is the question

While many retail stores are beginning to make an effort to bounce back from several seasons of poor sales, the back-to-school line at stores such as American Eagle and Abercrombie & Fitch have suffered especially. Same-store sales for 2003 are down 6.

Women win 100th NJAC match

The Lions defeated New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) rival Montclair State University, 8-1, for the women's tennis program's 100th consecutive NJAC win. The unbelievable streak began in 1982 when women's tennis was first introduced to the league.

Wanko’s ‘true life’ featured on MTV

Last spring, Lauren Wanko had to make one of the biggest decisions of her life in front of millions of viewers on the MTV program, "True Life." Wanko was chosen to become a part of the documentary series, and in this particular episode, the show followed four high school seniors as they made decisions that would impact the rest of their lives.

College ends five-year losing streak

The No. 3 ranked Rowan University Profs drove deep into Lions' territory, threatening another come-from-behind victory on Friday night. The Lions defense gained possession of the ball with just a minute left, giving the College a 22-20 victory, its first victory over Rowan in five years.

NFL: What’s going on?

What is going on with the NFL? I know it's only week five, and most of the predictions now will not stand at the end of the season, but the facts cannot be ignored. Only one of the eight current divisional leaders, the Indianapolis Colts (5-0), went to the playoffs last year.

How to become a devout sports fan

Life as a fanatic fan can be hard work, and the true test comes when your favorite team is losing. Being a sports editor and a trained journalist I learned you have to remain unbiased in your reporting. However, it's hard to remain biased when you are obviously going to root (secretly if necessary) for your school's teams to win.

Retail detail — hot tips for cool fall fashion

Fall fashion is here and with it comes a few new rules. It's time for the men to pack away those ugly denim shorts and the ladies to let go of their white pants. I just saw a lovely lady wearing white pants at KatManDu and, while they looked really good on her, I believe in the rule that white pants are for late spring and summer wear only.

Defense ensures Lion’s second win

Despite fumbling seven times during a torrential downpour in the second half, the Lions were able to clutch onto a 21-14 victory over New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) SUNY Cortland Red Dragons. The Lions (2-0, 1-0 NJAC) defeated their first NJAC rival with a strong first half offense, and a consistent defense throughout the game.
