Drum masters: The Island Dreams Drums crew invites passer-bys into its tent to experience the craftsmanship of Balinese Djembes during the 2003
Westheimer Street Festival on Sunday.


UH builds Cougar pride
What makes a great University is even greater traditions, and Texas students do it bigger and better. The Aggies have Bonfire, the 12th Man and Midnight Yell (just to name a few of the hundreds). Longhorns take pride in the University of Texas tower lighting, Hex Rally and "Eyes of Texas." UH is of course home to Frontier Fiesta and the Cougar Kickoff.

Coming out is all about sass
I went to the Gay Pride Parade on Saturday, and one thing stood out above the countless rainbow flags. It was a place where people dropped all masks and were decidedly real. Anticipation of the parade combined with the Westheimer Street Festival to create an atmosphere in which even the most timid closet case could sway his hips and say something sassy.

Taylor marks down his 'Perfect 10'
UH head swimming coach Mark Taylor didn't want to, but, alas, they were already out of his hands. He could never embrace five-time NCAA champ Yulia Pakhalina, at least as a diver for his swimming program, again. 

Stripes slap crowd with crisp sounds
The last time the White Stripes came to Houston they were beginning to break into the mainstream with their album White Blood Cells. They ended up selling out tiny Rudyard's, and with an eager crowd hoping to snag a spot inside. The group returned Tuesday, this time playing at the Verizon Wireless Theatre, and once again selling out the venue.
