In a world where ghosts pick out eerie tunes on harpsichords, where the answers to family mysteries lie hidden in secret compartments, where light and dark symbolism abounds, and where hypnotism, magnetism, and daguerreotypes all have vaguely magical connotations, five people attempt to live in an ancient house where the past does not stay dead. Mystery, horror, and love ensue.

Wednesday night, after classes officially ended for winter term, most students were ready for some festivities. Many found what they were looking for in the first-ever joint celebration of the Jewish holiday of Purim, the Hindu holiday of Holi, and the Muslim holiday of Eid Milad an Nabi, or the Birth of the Prophet.

Not even finals week will prevent the students of Arts 327 from presenting the results of their term-long projects in an exhibition in Boliou last Friday. Woodworking: The Table, taught by Stephen Mohring, is a largely self-directed advanced art class. Professor Mohring spends the first half of the term teaching students how to work with wood, then for the second half of the term tells them to build a table and sets them loose. Each table in the exhibition is designed to evoke a particular feeling, from waking up early on Saturday morning to sustainability to the memories of an off-campus trip to Spain. It's worth checking out.

It might seem like it happened ages ago, but what's wrong with reliving the glory of Midwinter Ball? The theme of the ball this year was "Storybook," interpreted loosely. Check out the moves on these students as they get down to swing in the Tea Room, traditional ballroom dancing in the Great Hall, and modern music in Great Space. Smart suits, swirly skirts, and happy students galore, as well as a polka.

Today, the NNB went into hibernation for the duration of spring term. You know what that means. Time for the termannual showcasing of the NNB’s weirdest ads.

Last weekend, Carleton’s musical theater put on a production of Cabaret, the Tony Award-winning musical about a seedy nightclub in Berlin just before the Nazis’ rise to power.

Was there a 50% off sale for fake vomit at the Econofoods this year? Here at Shout, we're still not quite sure why barfing students were such a recurring theme among this year's DVDfest entries. The traditional showing of the student-made films in the Chapel was an unusually short event this year, as there were only ten entries. Some films were sweet, some were gross, and some were just ... weird.

There’s a revolution afoot in Little Nourse Theater. Fortunately, this revolution won’t involve the chopping off of anybody’s heads: it’s an entirely new style of creating a play, one done collaboratively by the actors, for the actors.

The sketch comedy group put on a hilarious, fast-paced, unusually absurdist show this Thursday through Saturday.

Here it is, folks. Friday of seventh week I sat down with Fred Rogers, Carleton's vice president and treasurer, and talked with him on topics ranging from the Arts Union to Carleton's endowment.

You just can’t get good tribble kebab down at the Hogan Brothers. Or anywhere else on earth, for that matter. That’s the problem with some of the delicious-sounding foods in our favorite fantasy books and movies; all too often they exist only in the author’s imagination. It was the mission of Benton (science fiction and fantasy) House to rectify that condition.
