July 13 - Football games against ACC rivals N.C. State and Virginia Tech will provide a trial run for UNC's Web-based student-ticket system, campus officials said this week.
The new system, announced this summer, is primarily meant as a method for distributing tickets to men's basketball games. But UNC wants to give it a test run to work out any kinks, said Clint Gwaltney, director of ticket operations.
(The following is a conversation between Sufjan Stevens, who will play at Memorial Hall on Sept. 21, and the Judeo-Christian God.)
STEVENS: Are you there, God? It's me, Sufjan.
GOD: I am here, my child.
STEVENS: Oh, good. D'ya mind if we chit-chat a little bit?
GOD: Well, I've got a prayer appointment with The Killers at 4, but I can spare a few moments.
STEVENS: Well, Yahweh, I had a question about my goal in life. I want to write music about America, but I don't know if America will listen.
Maybe it's because us college students came of age - musically and otherwise - when Radiohead first burst onto the national stage with "Creep," that pouty paean to self-loathing.

News that the distribution of men's basketball tickets is moving online has sparked strong reaction from many students - and caused the president of the Carolina Athletic Association, students' liaison to the athletics department, to solicit their input.
"Details of the online policy haven't been finalized yet," CAA President Rachel High wrote in a letter to the editor that has been published in today's Daily Tar Heel.
Tar Heel basketball fans, take note: The eternal struggle between you and your Saturday-morning alarm is over.
That's because, in a move that has been contemplated for years, the distribution of men's basketball tickets for students is moving online.
"It's a matter of working out the kinks and making sure that when it's put in place this year, it's put in place as well as possible," said Rachel High, president of the Carolina Athletic Association - the student arm of the athletic department.
Several bits of humor are scattered throughout "Silent Hill," director Christophe Gans' film adaptation of the popular video-game series.
Unfortunately, only one of them - the playing of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" on a jukebox - is intentional.
Beyond that, the joke's on us, and it's 125 minutes long.
As you've probably heard, "Silent Hill" looks gorgeous, and Gans' team deserves credit for the film's expert set design, costumes and cinematography.
It was a plan full of possibility.
Buoyed by start-up money from an anonymous donor, the UNC system was going to provide students access to four major sources of legal downloads. It would say, "Go ahead. Download music and movies to your heart's content. It's all legal. Heck, use our money."
It would then evaluate that pilot program and come up with a way for students at all 16 UNC campuses to snatch their favorite songs and movies from the Internet - without running afoul of copyright laws.
A fire broke out at a University chilled-water facility Thursday afternoon, sending black smoke billowing across a Carolina-blue sky but doing little to disrupt campus services.
The blaze began shortly before 4 p.m. in an external tower of the North Chiller Plant, which is located next to the Student Health Service building.
The Chapel Hill Fire Department sent three engines, a ladder truck and 22 firefighters to the scene, according to a University press release. The flames had diminished by 4:30 p.m., and the blaze was under control just after 5 p.m.
The headline on the lead story in the Sept. 21, 2004, edition of The Daily Tar Heel told readers that something pretty important had just happened: "Student body secretary gives up post."
A few weeks later, on Oct. 11, another story of import hit the DTH: "Allred chosen to fill office."
Like any good Catholic, I'll begin this column with a confession: I once thought about going to Duke.
Might as well get to the point: I fired Jillian Bandes yesterday.
