The religious climate at Carleton is difficult to assess. On one hand, people could generalize forever about how most students here aren't particularly religious, but then again, what does that really mean, “not all that religious”? When I think about my own friends here, most if not all of them are in some way attached to religion, and if not they’ve at least mulled over its personal significance. That’s not to say that Carleton students frequently dive into religious conversations, but the notion that Carleton exists outside of all religious beliefs seems like an inaccurate and sweeping statement.
With this on my mind, I sat down last week with Joe Gammello '08 and Angie Kim ‘08, two editors behind the only campus publication solely devoted to religious issues, Unashamed.

In Mid-September Austin Hall '10 went where few have gone before: the Ellen Show. Personally invited by comedian host Ellen DeGeneres, he performed his YouTube hit (with nearly 4 million views), Daft Hands.
Daft Hands is a remarkable work starring Hall's hands gyrating to the song Harder Better Faster Stronger by electronic group Daft Punk. (You may have heard this song sampled in Kanye West's summer hit Stronger.) Hall's smooth moves have spawned hundreds of copycat videos--most notably, one featuring a hapless dog with puppet-strings attached to paws.
Watch the Shout interview with Austin after the jump.

Today we're introducing a new feature in Shout, called "Ten Questions With..." Every month, we will be conducting a 10-question interview with a member of the Carleton faculty or administration, and presenting the transcript for your reading enjoyment.
Our first interview is with Sam Demas, the college librarian. Okay, it ran a little over ten questions, but it should still be interesting reading.
