Why I wish I was back in School
Allow time for students to record their anti-drug videos. Monitor student progress and offer assistance as necessary. If students need to research background information, student resources are available on www.freevibe.com, including the student drug fact sheets, Lowdown About Marijuana and Lowdown About Inhalants. Show students two examples of Anti-drug Videos and talk about the approaches and style that are used in each.
Have groups/students present their completed anti-drug videos to the rest of the class. Debrief after each presentation to discuss the style (of the song/video) and anti-drug approach(es) used, and any comments or suggestions observers may have. For fun, have students vote on their favorite two presentations.
Display videos around the school and/or have students present their videos to other classes.
Summarize by asking each student to share one thing he/she remembers from the presentations about inhalants or marijuana.

Who Makes Movies?
The MPAA has expanded the scope of their anti-piracy campaign, with spots specifically targeting horror fans, Bridget Fonda fans, and porn lovers. We salute the MPAA in their struggle against all that is evil.
Body of Lies
Rebecca tears his shirt off and pours hot wax down his chest. She rapes him while grinding a broken light bulb into his back. And she also scratches his back with her fingernails. Ah, 1993 was a simpler time, one of indian burns and 20 chocolate bars jammed into various body cavities.
What guy cares about diamonds, period? Gangsta rappers looking for bling… and homosexual pop stars. That’s it. If you are neither one of those, and you’re buying a diamond, then you’re looking to get yourself a wife, or you need to cut glass.
He was a perfect mole, working for a combined CIA/ISI task force. Khan sent and received encrypted e-mails to key al Qaeda figures in the hope of pinpointing their locations and intentions.
R4NT Video: 10 Cents
Gordon McDowell and Geoff Helmer take the reigns and herein have spurred some heated discussion on borrowing.
Don’t Drink & Pork
Its so close Calgarians can taste it, and are ready to celebrate. Beer is chugged. Boobs are flashed. But it could all end at any moment… those with lust in their hearts know they have to act fast.
Other recent features:
Sónar 2010 – Barcelona, Spain
The festival attracts a lot of outsiders, but the Mediterranean, Spanish and more specifically Catalan nature of the people makes the festival what it is. Catalan people are passionate and this passion is infectious. The atmosphere is electric in Barcelona as a city and heightened by music and intoxicants at Sónar.
Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.
R4NT Radio March 2010
R4NT Radio March 2010 um wow it’s been far too long since the last edition edition, featuring: Hector Hernandez, The Infesticons, Blockhead, Gramatik, Emika, Thunderheist, Parov Stelar, Eddy Meets Yannah, Anti-Pop Consortium, The Slew, Lighterthief, Andreya Triana, Parasyte Woman, Mathon, Venetian Snares, and Funki Porcini.
O Restaurant & Lounge revisited
Calgary has a diverse set of urban communities, most of which have the ubiquitous strip mall watering hole. In the South West community of Marda Loop, a reinvention of this paradigm has been established.
Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
