Internet shines new light on Eagle content

When the last issue of The Eagle came out Thursday, something happened that has, to my somewhat humble knowledge, never happened before. Two pretty major Internet outlets posted pieces directly sourcing to something The Eagle had produced.


Quiz: What's your 'hood?

If you thought choosing a dorm was hard, try picking a neighborhood. Choosing to live off campus is an exciting decision, but it's hard to know where to start. Once you've figured out the right home base for your needs you can start looking for your new home. The Eagle staff has compiled this quick and dirty quiz to help you pick out your home away from home.


Greenberg hosts DPA's 'Tartuffe'

Students can witness the spectacle of scandal and hypocrisy starting this Thursday in Greenberg Theatre when the Department of Performing Arts puts on "Tartuffe." The play, which premiered in Versailles in 1664, tells the story of an aging aristocrat, Orgon, who is conned by a falsely religious zealot, Tartuffe.


SUB takes on Girl Talk's safety issues

While the Tavern can get crazy in its own right, the chaos rarely breaks out into a genuine riot. On Saturday night, Greg Gillis, better known as mash-up artist Girl Talk, could be the inciting force that finally pushes the space over the edge.

D.C. grows 'Garden'

The glare of the spotlight is often too much for a celebrity just coming off a hit film. What's worse is if that film is a documentary, and you can't escape the character you're known for. But Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale, cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, embraced the spotlight in the years following the release of the cult hit "Grey Gardens," the Maysles brothers' documentary about her and her mother's estate of the same name.


News that fits to a 'T'

Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves; others wear their news on their chests. Swedish T-shirt magazine T-post allows readers to keep abreast of the latest news of the weird while keeping their backs warm. Every six weeks, T-post's four-person staff puts together an issue - that is, a topical T-shirt with a news story printed inside and a clever artistic adaptation on the outside - and send it out to their 2,500 subscribers worldwide.
