Dear DJ of Dormal Fourmal,
We had fun for the most part...
But where in the EFF was "Gimme More?"



Jaymay played to a sold out crowd this evening at the Shiva, presented by ViCE's After Hours. Jenny Hartman and Anabel Graff opened. Jaymay played an awesome set. And she's from Lawng Island!

Gimme Gimmeeee

We just danced our vajayjays off!

Tonight's Just Dance! party hosted by the Queer Coalition just finished up after hours and hours of shakin it. Playing about thirty seconds of each amazing song, it was pretty much the best continuous iTunes preview ever. We had a ball trying not to be too heteronormative. We're deaf in our right ear, sweat our balls off, and now have 2 STD's. Worth it? Might have been.

The DJ did play "Gimme More" and "Stronger" each twice, but whatevs. One question though - where in the eff was Madonna?

Only hours until parents arrive!

Hot Mess (Part 2)

Fire Alarm

The Jewett fire alarm went off - again - at about 7pm. Luckily Mads was sound asleep on a couch in the library.

This was #4 for Jewett so far this year.

We have to admit...the strobe light effect is kind of cool. Jewett looked like a phallic night club!

What's YOUR favorite item to get at the Farmer's Market?


Tim O'Brien

Author Tim O'Brien gave some legit lectures today.
His earlier Q&A session took place in UpC. This was part of the Freshmen First Year Program, and was hosted by none other than Nate "The Natural" Silver. O'Brien was wearing a gray sweater, blue jeans, sneakers, and his trademark baseball cap. Freshies asked some good questions. The author told us, "I think I'm a love writer, not a war writer," and urged conservative news casters to "Put your body where your rhetoric is." Word to that!

O'Brien's later lecture was held in the chapel. Mads met him sitting on a bench before going on, where he told us he was a "writer, not a talker" and was very nervous. Now, in a suit, O'Brien told the crowd: "Stories are among the things all of us carry," and "If you don't care about grammar, you could end up president."

O'Brien, seconds before taking the podium:

Random Observation

Kenny Parma, ACDC staff, was spotted pushing a card from the kitchen to the Deli station, repeating Fat Albert's "Hey, hey, hey!" over and over again. Doesn't he kind of look like Biz Markie? (in a good way!)

The Natural

It was a tough competition, but Nate "The Natural" Silver took the gold in this evening's "Big Sauce Challenge" at ACDC. The Champ also helped organize the event...Fixed?

The celebs were out in full force. Dean of Freshmen Joanne Long, Dean of College "JJ" Jackson, and celebrity chef Michel Nischan, all made appearences. The paparazzi had a field day!

ARAMARK sure is kissing ass!

Celeb sighting!

Joanne Long, Dean of Freshmen was spotted in ACDC before the cook-off competition. She was wearing a smart red pantsuit, sources report.


We found this funny:

...funny 'cause it's TRUE!

Message to a candidate

Dearest Vannessa Lampson, Jewett Freshmen Rep Candidate,
While we appreciate your campaign efforts, we must make one correction to your "Candidate Statement." Mike D actually threw the keg out of a 9th floor window (not your window). For further reading on the matter, please see:

But we do love your use of the phrase "phallace palace."
Bon chance!
