What Was Happening Today at CCC in 2000?

spring break

On March 20, 2000, students were as stressed as ever (passing out in class, to be specific), flights to Myrtle Beach were $59, and a poll revealed that one student’s favorite game was Contra (you know, that game from the original Nintendo).

The music reviewed in this issue included Oasis, Garage d’Or, and Yo la Tengo. Do you recognize any of these aside from Oasis?

The first “Final Destination” debuted in 2000, and the reviewer wrote, “Trust, you won’t be disappointed!” I wonder what he thought of the second, third, fourth, and fifth movies in this series.
