Hostel: Part II-B

Much like when the first "Hostel" came out, plenty of critical disgust was spewed forth, for it was "too shocking" and "grotesque." What most fail to realize is the first film, and now "Hostel: Part II," came out at opportune times when the American box office managed to be flooded with unnecessary remakes of horror classics, "Saw" sequels and Japanese horror films dumbed down for our audiences. Sure it's a sequel, but its a worthy one at that.

Daylight dilemma

You might want to read this next paragraph a few times before moving on. In April 2006, Indiana officially became the 48th state to adopt daylight saving time, meaning the state’s clocks would now “spring ahead” and “fall back” with the rest of the Eastern Standard Time states. However, several counties (many of which have previously observed daylight saving time) petitioned to set their clocks to Central Standard Time and observe daylight saving time with the rest of the Midwest. Got all that? If you’re having a hard time making sense of Indiana’s backwater approach to time zones and daylight saving time, you aren’t the only one.

I've never written a headline

If you are reading this online-only column, you may also be the sort of person who played Sink the Biz last night, or ordered the seitan special at Roots Restaurant. In other words, you belong to a cult.
