Rancher E. Steffan and his wife became local heroes this week in 1906 when they captured an intruder in their home on Saturday, October 27, 1906. The couple had just woken up when “there came a demand for admission from without and a burly stranger with a gun in his hand stepped in and demanded that he be given shelter,” reported “The Colorado Transcript.”
The recent “Twilight” movies, which feature sparkly vampires who madly fall in love with, marry, and then impregnate innocent teenage girls, have destroyed the reputation of the once ferocious movie monster. Vampires used to be scary, but now they are laughable.
Lately, it has been hard to deny the decay occurring in the art industry. In film, two of the top five earners for the week of October 24, 2011, “Footloose” and “The Three Musketeers,” contain plots identical to similar movies released in the past. In literature, Bill O’Reilly is the current owner of the most popular hardcover nonfiction book. And of course, in music, Bieber is the king.
“The Sidewinder” by Lee Morgan accomplishes the rare feat of hitting on every tune. Recorded in 1963, and released in 1964, it is a perfect example of the hard bop style. With catchy compositions and solos, the album can certainly be defined as a Jazz classic that anyone can listen to and enjoy.
In the future, sports are violent and action-packed. Humans, unable to handle the growing violence, create robots to fight in their place. “Real Steel” follows the life of go-for-broke boxer Charlie Kenton, who uses robots to box odd animals and other robots in an underground fighting league.
Mouthwatering chocolate fudge usually has to be bought from a store, but with this easy recipe it is made in the microwave in only 2 minutes. It is a perfectly sweet treat for the holidays that goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or cup of hot chocolate, and can be made in any dorm room.
Entering Mannie and Bo’s Pizzeria at the corner of South Golden Road and Quaker Street feels like entering a slightly crowded Italian kitchen. The walls are covered in humorous Italian-style décor and the entire building smells of freshly baked pizza dough.
While most of the world thinks of geeks as scrawny, super-smart, socially-impaired bibliophiles who spend half of their time studying and the other half playing nerdy games, Mines geeks tend to break stereotypes so thoroughly that only a combination of duct tape and Chuck Norris could put them back together. Christina Bailo is a perfect example of this phenomenon. Her status as a senior in Engineering Physics would imply she spends all her time inside studying. However, her interview with the Oredigger manages to eliminate that conception entirely.
