The Union Ballroom hosted an almost contradictory event Friday an arena rock show in an intimate environment.
Contradiction or not, it was definitely a hand-clapping good time for audience members when Almost Queen a Queen tribute band hit the stage with screaming guitar solos, monstrous drum beats and heavenly vocal range.
"Really, we started the band when we found a guy that looked exactly like Freddie Mercury," said Tom Cavanagh, guitar player for the tribute band, before the show.
Cavanagh, who has a striking resemblance to Queen's guitar player Brian May, was right about his band mate Joseph Russo looking like Queen's late great lead singer Mercury.
Russo wore the trademark white tank top with white jeans and, of course, sported the Mercury mustache.

A sick feeling hit my stomach all of a sudden.
While sitting at my desk in my dorm room surfing the Web and eating an evening sandwich, I couldn't help but feel rather repulsed.
The fact that I blew off studying for a test MacGyver marathons get me every time did not have an overall effect in deterring my appetite.
I had just received a pop-up from www.AdultFriendFinder.com, the popular Web site with its home page indicating that it is in fact "the world's largest sex & swinger personals site." After nearly regurgitating the sandwich, I was caught off guard by the (ahem) revealing shots in the member profiles.
Being a self-described rugged bachelor, I curiously decided to take a gander at what the site had to offer.
Filled with thousands upon thousands of "sexually liberated members" with such names as "2HoT4u" or "BuTtErCup420," these swingers were more than willing to "hook up" or allow access to their "sexy webcam videos." Long walks on the beach need not apply.

Crossword puzzles across campus are feeling spurned as more and more people turn to the number game Sudoku to tease their brains.
The game that requires no math has become a staple in newspapers around the country, including The State News.
It was reintroduced to the nation last spring, according to an article about the game in the current issue of American Scientist.
Some students, such as accounting junior Sean Brennan, imported the game after spending the summer abroad.
"I went to Ireland over the summer and they had that all over the newspapers," Brennan said, who now has a Sudoku day calendar and completes about two puzzles a day.
Sudoku puzzles can usually take between 10 minutes and a half hour, depending on the puzzle's difficulty and player's skill, according to www.sudoku.com.

I'm not an avid television watcher in fact as a general rule I hate TV shows. But like all rules, there is an exception, and that exception is "24." It doesn't matter how much schedule rearrangement is necessary; I will not miss that show.
