OFF THE BOARD: Of football and 9/11

For many, the highlight of the TV viewing experience this weekend was the season premiere of The Simpsons or Family Guy on Fox. Both shows are usually funny, occasionally outlandish and once in a while insightful, but don't ask me to comment on them because I didn't watch either one.

OFF THE BOARD: The self-shot revolution

The bastard son of the 17th century's commissioned works and the late 19th century's photographic revolution, portraits are here to stay. We've all had one taken. Graduations. Weddings. Family Reunions. Selfies in the park. Sunday night webcam sessions. Blue Dog Friday night Canon-fests.

OFF THE BOARD: Proud to be a man again

Early forms of feminism were founded upon the notion of female equality; that women should be able to take firm control of their personal and professional lives, be equally represented in the workplace, receive the same professional courtesy and salary as men and obtain the respect they merit in the home.

THE HELPLESS ROMANTIC: Dispatch from the Orient

This column comes to you from Shanghai because I'm still on vacation. I am embedded deep in the pearl-encrusted, dragon-swarming mists of the Far East. Of course, while old Western beliefs about the yellow horde no longer hold, new peculiarities have taken their place.

EDITORIAL: The 4Floors conundrum

When an issue is too divisive for our editorial board to reach a consensus on it, we feel that our readers are better served by two competing editorials that look at all sides of the debate. With that in mind, we tackle the party everyone loves to hate: 4Floors-should it stay or should it go? UNLEASH THE POTENTIAL McGill students are spoiled.

WET PAINT: Baby and Balanciaga

As we have probably all noticed at some point, current fashions often conflict. While everyone is still flapping about flats and their newly wistful attitude to life and walking, Pam Anderson-inspired monstrosities are somehow attaching themselves to all my friends' feet.

Letters to the Editor

Prayer Do you sometimes look at your watch and don't know what time it is? Do you sometime go to sleep, wake up thinking you're somewhere but discover you're somewhere else? Do you sometimes go to a room in your house and wonder why you went there? Do you sometime feel so helpless that you say to yourself "God help me," regardless of what your religion is? I do too! I can go on with an exhaustive list of those little things that we have in common and define us as human beings.

UNCOMMONLY THOUGHTFUL: Oral sex is great

Warning: The following column is written with a heterosexual audience in mind (which is something I wouldn't normally do), but generally I think the queer community is much more open to the joys of oral sex and doesn't need a talking to on the subject. Why has performing oral sex become a derogatory thing? Why do the media, music industry and porn (okay, bad example) make it out to be all about power for the person receiving it? I think it's about power for the person giving oral sex.

EDITORIAL: The Tribune: Under new management

The beginnings are the hardest to write. It's always about looking for a witty way to say what has been said before (basically: welcome back), and staring at a white screen with a slowly blinking cursor is no way to get inspired. Consulting the archives for advice from former editors doesn't really work either-it makes you feel unoriginal.
