If you ere anything like the
majority of college students, you
have gone to a bar or club at least
once with more on your mind
than a drink and deep conversation.
These places cater to dreams,,
drinking and escape. Often, they're
the escape from school pressures
and the dream of trysts. The
drinking is the lubricant for both.
Tense? Nervous? Just had your
first exam of the semester? What
could be possibly be more relax
ing than a good drunk and a roll
in the hay, rijht?
Nothing, you might say. But be
forewarned. There's more at stake
here than minor liver and brain
cell damage. You just might end
up having your emotions tam
pered with. Keeping that scary
premise in mind, here's a few
descriptive warnings of potential
ly dangerous characters and situa
tions: 1) The Flirt (or Terse) -This
type of barfly i3 invariably prom
ising, expensive, sexily attired
and ultimately a cause of frustra
tion. A waste of time and money.
Male species are usually noted
for T-shirt3 cut too short to tuck
in and $20 haircuts. Same for the
female species, only their hair
styles cost $5 more.
2) Thz ("IVe jest been burn
ed") Rebounder or Backlash
Lover This species has revenge
on it? mind and its victims be
come a mere pawn in the re
bounder's game. This type can be
fleetingiy satisfying for the un
witting volunteer, but if it's true
yof dangerous characters
that revenge is sweet, you're likely
to be little more than a sugar
buzz. If you do chance upon this
form of instant romance, stay
uninvolved. Lose that phone
number on the matchbook and
forget that lunch date next Wed
nesday. 3) The Movers (formerly
known as One-Nlght-Standers)
Definitely the most dangerous
ri3k in temporary bar relation
ships. Chance of reciprocal emo
tional attachment is extremely
low, chance of social disease ex
tremely high. Movers have an
tality. Join the list at your own
4) Th Lonely Types, cr Sl.y
ctcra Are usually depressing,
dramatic and devious. Most lonely
types are starved for affection
and attention. Unless youVe into
Kafka, Bukowski, existentialism
or alcoholism, they're best left
5) The Olive Oil Syndrome
(male and fern si o) Some peo
ple think that they're not appre
ciated unless someone is fighting
over them or at least feeling jeal
ous. A sick philosophy for ail con
cerned, whether you're the Popeye,
the Bluto or the Olive. Flirting
with danger usually finds an eager
It's not all doom and gloom in
Lincoln's meat market taverns.
Some people are able to dance,
drink, talk, listen, relax and have
some harmless fun. But take some
advice from an old pro don't go
looking for love and drive care
fully on the way home.
Years ago, my grandma said
that people should never marry
someone they met in a bar.
Maybe she's right.

"Quadrophenia" is recommend

and music and a must-see for
Coming to assault your senses
on Sunday and Monday is the
long-awaited Lincoln debut of the
film "Quadrophenia." This British
film directed by Franc Eoddam
deals with the plight of British
youth in 1064.
Based on the concept album of
the saiue name by the rock group
The Who, "Quadrophenia" is not a
concert film like David Bowie's
"Ziggy Stardust." In fact, The Who
does not even a3pear in the film,
nor is it a fantasy like "Tommy,"
the group's earlier film.
It is a narrative set in the Lon
don days of the Mods and the
Rockers, the two warring factions
of British youth in the early '60s
for whom rock and roll became a
way of life. Mods were the kids
dependent on pills and stylerfrom
their skinny ties and haircuts to
the fancy Italian scooters they
rode. Their music was British Pop
and American SouL In contrast,
the Rockers wore black leather
jackets, rode motorcycles and lis
tened to "harder" rock and roll,
common to late '50s groups. It is
interesting to note how modern
music and dress has progressed
from both of these styles.
The story centers on one
alientated British youth named
Jimmy (played by Phil Daniels),
who is in conflict with himself
and Britain's class society. He
becomes progressively detached
from family, friends and society
