weak. Background noises and beats
seem to clutter, not enhance, many
of the songs. “ ~ * , .
Track five, “Reasons to be
Beautiful/* tries to use deep industri
al drum lines to give it an ominous
and rocking quality. Though the riffs
are low, heavy and repetitive, they
still don’t pull off the gritty debauch
ery needed to make this song work.
It sounds as though die soul is miss
ing from the music, and the song
comes off as being messed with and
too clean. Ironically, the song’s
lyrics sadly mirror the song itself.
“And they steal your heart away
- when the fire goes out you better
learn how to lake.”
. The album makes a comeback
towards the end with “Boys on the
Radio” and “Heaven Tonight”- two
songs ripe with lovey-dovey sing
alopg lyrics and an overall “every
thing will be all right” feel. Zits and
braces aren't the end of the world,
girls; stick in there, and Johnny will
come around. If he doesn’t, you did
n't need him anyway.
Overall it’s a pretty good pop
album despite three or four weak
links in the happy chain. Love’s
vocal style is, for the most part* the
same as it always has been. The dif
ference is that now her voice is more
heavily relied upon mid her inability
to hold notes is apparent on some of
Ihe band's slower ballads.
If you're looking for “Live
Through This, Part II,” you won’t
find it in “Celebrity Skin.”The scabs
have been scraped off, and her new
make-up looks quite pretty.
However, if you’re hungry for some
polished pop, by all means, dig in
with your sweet tooth.

Shapiro said he learned how to

Shapiro has lectured at New York
University and Harvard, in
Cambridge, Mass. He saidhe hopes
his discussion provides students with
the realities of the movie business.
“You can learn a lot of theory in
school, but you need to know what it’s
like in die trenches. What does it real
ly mean when you throw your hat in
the air at graduation and you actually
have to sit down and get a job?”
Sandy Veneziano, who worked
with Shapiro as a production design
er on the movie “My Favorite
Martian,” agreed that Shapiro’s lec
ture will provide students with an
inside viewof Hollywood
“It will tell them the realistic
point of view of working in Los
Angeles and what every aspect of the
industry is,” Veneziano said.
Veneziano is a visiting instructor
for the College of Fine and Performing
Arts at die University of Nebraska
Lincoln who travels extensively
among design and production circles.
Shapiro will lecture at 10 a.m., 11

■ Folk singer Alix
Dobkin uses songs to
illustrate her experiences
in the lesbian feminist
By Km Sweet
Students will have the opportu
nity to hear from a historian, a civil
and women’s rights activist and a
famed folk singer, all in one night.
Alix Dobkin, a folk musician
whose songs have traced the path of
the feminist movement, will per
form tonight at 7 in the Culture
Dobkin’s life has been laced with
experiences that contribute to the
many hats she wears as a historian
and a radical activist. They range
from being raised by communist
parents in the 1950s to taking an
active part in the civil rights move
ment in die 1960s and die women’s
movement in the 1970s.
But tonight Dobkin hopes to
focus on the experience that has per
vaded her life the most: herexperi
ence as a lesbian.
Dobkin’s lecture, entitled
“Before Lilith Fair - die evolution of
women’s music,” will be illustrated
by song. It will focus on the evolu
tion of feminist and lesbian feminist
culture and its roots in other tradi
tions, she said.
Though the folk singer’s songs
trace her process of discovering
feminism as well as her own sexual
ity, Dobkin said her other experi
ences often lead her to talk about a
number of issues that have shaped
. “I’m all over the map, because
feminism is all over the map,” die said.
Raised in a musical family,
Dobkin said she understood at an
early age the potential music had as a
vehicle for expressing ha views.
A combination of her musical
knowledge and her knack for being
in the right place at the right time
encouraged Dobkin’s activism.
During the 1950s at the age of
16, Dobkin joined the Communist
Party amid the red scare.
In the 1960s, the folk singer hap
pened to be in Mississippi dining the
height of the civil rights movement
and sang her songs during the 1963
march on Washington, D.C.
In the 1970s, Dobkin said she
became a feminist and came out as a
“Again, I was in the right place at
the right time,” Dobkin said.
Tolandra Coleman, project coor
dinator for the Women’s Center,
agrees with Dobkin.
“She was fighting for women’s
and human rights long before the
movement began,” Coleman said.
Dobkin said she is in the right
place at the right time again, as she
continues to spread her message.
“My purpose is to speak to
women,” Dobkin said. “That is my
Coleman believes Dobkin will
accomplish part of her mission.
“She will hopefully empower
people to be a part of the women’s
movement and the lesbian women’s
movement,” Coleman said.
