    The Village

    There's a new M. Night film coming out at the end of this month. Wasn't a fan of Unbreakable, but Signs slightly scared the b-jeebus out of me. Synoposis: Set in 1897, the tale of an isolated village confronting an astonishing truth that lies just outside its borders. At first glance, this village seems picture perfect, but this close-knit community lives with the frightening knowledge that creatures reside in surrounding woods. The evil and foreboding force is so unnerving that none dare venture beyond the borders of the village and into the woods. But when curious, headstrong Lucius Hunt plans to step beyond the boundaries of the town and into the unknown, his bold move threatens to forever change the fate of the village. The trailer is INTENSE. Should i be laughing like so many of my friends did at Signs?

    Small, Friendly Dog For My Mom

    My mom wants a maltese, but i feel like they are totally a popular dog of the moment kind of pet. I personally like beagles, but they aren't so cute once they get big. I need a dog that is small enough to lift (20 lbs max), fun to play with, and will keep my mom company once i go back to school, also easy to train. Any suggestions? -Sarah the Intern

    Absentee Ballot

    I'm going to be down at school during the election this fall. I heard last year that absentee ballots only count when there is a tie. Is that true? Should i make a trip up back to NoVa? -Sarah the Intern

    Phantom Planet Concert

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you guys out there know that I recently went to the Phantom Planet concert at the 9:30 Club in DC. I took lots of pictures, and they should be up sometime during the middle of this week. It was an awesome show! -Sarah the Intern
  9. Just over a thousand pages, and $35 + tax, is Bill Clinton's Autobiography My Life really worth it? As a graduation present last spring my father gave me Hilary's Autobiography, Living History. It was a gift to inspire me to strive for big things in life, as i transitioned from high school to college. I started reading, and it was so boring. She totally disregards what happened with her husband, and was in denial about huge part of her life as the First Lady. So, I am weary about starting this new book, and the hassles of lugging the brick of a thing around town. Any opinions or reviews would be highly appreciated. Thanks, Sarah the Intern

  12. Pending Draft Legislation Targeted for Spring 2005 The Draft will Start in June 2005 "There is pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills: S 89 and HR 163) which will time the program's initiation so the draft can begin at early as Spring 2005 -- just after the 2004 presidential election. The administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now, while the public's attention is on the elections, so our action on this is needed immediately. $28 million has been added to the 2004 Selective Service System (SSS) budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as June 15, 2005. Selective Service must report to Bush on March 31, 2005 that the system, which has lain dormant for decades, is ready for activation. Please see website: www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004.html to view the sss annual performance plan - fiscal year 2004. The pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350 draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide.. Though this is an unpopular election year topic, military experts and influential members of congress are suggesting that if Rumsfeld's prediction of a "long, hard slog" in Iraq and Afghanistan [and a permanent state of war on "terrorism"] proves accurate, the U.S. may have no choice but to draft." The above is an excerpt from a longer article that was brought my attention at Congress.org. The article in it's entirety can be viewed at: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/issues...=ua_congressorg I feel as though, not many people know about this pending legislature. Am i suppose to believe that I'm this misinformed? -Sarah (the DCpages intern)

    Why Hello There

    Hey Everyone out there on the Web, I just wanted to introduced myself. I'm a rising 2nd year at the University of Virginia and I'm spending my summer interning at DCPages. I've lived in Northern Virginia since the age of 3. I'll be covering some local music events amoung my other adventures. Hopefully everyone will enjoy my coverage. I'd be grateful if anyone could give me a heads up on anything interesting happening on the local scene so I can catch it. Have a Lovely Day , -Sarah
  15. Rediscovering the National Gallery By: Sarah Ahn I’m going to be honest. I’ve lived in the Washington DC area since I was three, but let’s face it, I’ve never made an effort to get into the city and see what it has to offer. It’s slightly unfathomable that people would choose to go on vacation to the District—but then I realize how highly revered the nation’s capital is placed in the average tourists mind. My memories as a child revolve around Saturday trips in which my Aunt would drag my cousins and I, begrudgingly, to every important museum and monument in DC. One would think that this early experience in the arts and history would have inspired me to appreciate the arts. But proximity is not always enough to motivate. There has to be something more to prompt me to make the trek out to Vienna and catch the hour-long metro ride to DC. So, on my first day on the job at DCpages, we were each told to pick a place in DC to cover and write about for the photo gallery, to get a sense of what it would be like to cover an event. I choked. The National Gallery of Art? But the little voice inside my head told me that it would probably be good for me, since I’ve recently embarked on a quest to better myself intellectually. A memory surfaced of a conversation I had with my roommate about modern American art in which I had no idea what she was talking about. She laughed. As you walk up the steps of the gallery and open the doors, one finds themselves in the front hall and your experience begins. It reminded me of the dome room at the Rotunda at school (University of Virginia), light streaming from the skylight above. But then reality hits. Children were running around splashing in the bronze fountain of Mercury as they giggled with joy. I would learn that various groups make trip to the national gallery on field trips, many in matching shirts or other identifiable articles of clothing. On special exhibit until July 25 is the Courtly Art of the Ancient Maya collection. We watched the introductory film, which provided the context for most of the art in the collection. The history buff in me was thoroughly intrigued. For such a sophisticated society, with complex religious practices, they spent 95% of their time belligerently in conflict with their neighbors. Yet it’s amazing to me that they were still able to flourish and achieve such profound artistic and architectural achievements. Next I went to the Small French Painting exhibit. I personally thought that the display was very dark, perhaps it was the intention of the museum or just the nature of the artwork, but it was slightly depressing. But that’s just how some art can be. Next, we walked around the permanent collection. The museum is organized chronologically. I went from the gothic Italian paintings and sculptures to the renaissance work to American impressionism. Throughout the museum there are painting easels in which artists spend their time in the gallery painting other’s works. I never knew that was an option for artists as a way to find inspiration. And since we went during lunchtime, there were some Washingtonians among the tourists, taking their lunch break to appreciate the many exhibits, perhaps eating lunch in the café between the East and West wing of the museum. I would recommend going to the National Gallery, for the day, or even just for a lunch break if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
