Gazette #11

November 30th, 2006

Music: in the ear of the listener?
My second article where the title contains a colon, and my second article where the accompaning picture is of a female celebrity. This one was weak, but i have a feeling it may be just as popular as the Hollywood Science article.

The Old Country New World

November 29th, 2006

Some people think that Europe can do no wrong. No music could ever be produced in England without the upmost sophistication and taste. To those people I would show this video, which will soon destroy their theory.
Peter Andre and Jordan: A Whole New World

This udder cheeseball comes from the British tabloid’s number three family, after the Beckhams and the royals. A Whole New World is a classic Disney song. Why must they taint it so with their delusions of grandeur and their copycat behavior of Mariah Carey?

Dad’s Purple Theatre Nightgown

Happy Late Second Turkey Day!

November 25th, 2006

I’m back home this weekend to see my dad in Theatre Antigonish’s version of Hamlet. He plays Polonius, and he plays it very well. Pierre’s also in it, as a musician. He played themes from the Holst Suite that we clarinet players have engrained in our mind from the constant practicing of that piece year after year. And he plays it in a bright hot pink and orange leotard. Dad got to wear a weird purple sleeping bag contraption with a big floppy pizzaria hat.
I though the play was really well done, and a good measure sadly, is that it was Shakespeare and I didn’t feel bored at any time, though I knew the outcome (spoiler alert: everyone dies, except for one main character. I won’t tell you who it is, but his name starts with H but he’s not the character for whom the play is named).
Also, since today is officially one month until Christmas, I thought I’d give you a few hints as to gifts that will improve my life, if you’re feeling generous:

  • A good, strong backpack which can hold my notebook computer and some notebooks without disintegrating like my previous two backpacks.
  • my amazon Wishlist
  • a subscription to Seed or Wired
  • this t-shirt, or this one, or this one because the t-shirt is the best clothing for the college student: comfortable, easy to clean, and the perfect billboard for self expression. Note: homemade t-shirts that say the same thing are acceptable, and I usually wear a small.
  • gift certificates to Wal-Mart or Shopper’s drug mart, because soap and other necessities already take out of my shrinking bank account.
  • for my fellow impoverished university student friends, I like things to fill my blank walls, white chocolate, dark chocolate, and peanut butter.

    Gazette #9 & #10 + exbf cover

    November 22nd, 2006

    The Dal Gazette Website finally updated, and to compensate for last week’s article being a week late, I’ll add the article that doesn’t officially come out until tomorrow along with it.
    It’s all about the Stem Cells
    My follow-up article to Hollywood Science: I felt like I didn’t get enough time to explain my views on this in the previous article, so this one’s just about the recent amazing developments in the field of stem cell research. The opinions that week were only about reactions to the mid-term elections in the United States: even though most students at Dalhousie are Canadian. I guess Canadian politics are just really that boring. Also, I think my editor is pretending to be a scientist in the photo that goes along with my story.
    Libraries: Fortresses of Rights
    I heard about this story through boingboing, and when I learned that no one was covering it, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I had a plan of attack. I was going to try to interview librarians and research the Patriot Act, but then I had other stuff to do because I’m in DISP, and reading government documents is the most pointless way to spend your time. So, sadly, much of my inspiration for this article came from the Penn and Teller’s Bullshit! episode on the Patriot Act.
    On a side note, if you look at the cover to the left of my article, you will see my ex-boyfriend, Andy, making a faux-tough-guy face. That made me laugh. But no offense intended. Go Andy.

    Revenge of the Nerdcore

    November 22nd, 2006

    Tired of the generic crunk rap with its materialism, sexism and stupidity? Then maybe it’s time for Nerdcore: the rap-music run by nerds, such as MC Hawking with his computer voice and anti-pseudoscience songs and MC Frontalot, the self-proclaimed 579th best rapper in the game. My favourite Nerdcore MC is MC Lars, who sings about the nerd life, college, and being forced to take Statistics. I can relate.
    MC Lars: Space Game

    The video is pretty lame. MC Lars is actually kind of cute in real life, but I hope that he doesn’t appear in this video. But the song is hilarious. Or at least I thought it was the first time I heard it.

    Dalhousie Reached for, Dalhousie Caught!

    November 19th, 2006

    reachfordal.jpg

    They won! Yesterday evening, the Dr. JH Gillis won first place in the Reach For Dalhousie Tournament! I knew they would!
    They all won full first year scholarships to Dalhousie. I don’t think Pierre has any plans on attending, though.
    And the reason this update is over 24 hours late is because Pierre was here until 12, then I wrote my crappy article about the Patriot act for next week’s Gazette, and then I went on an unintentional walking tour of Halifax in which we bought toothpaste, detergent and salsa, and eventually ended up at the downtown library where some guy at a table behind us loudly ragged on living in Halifax, afterwards I spent three hours writing a short story about the engineers who enriched the uranium for the little boy hiroshima bomb, and then I watched the Farscape Pilot.
    It was my day off.
    And now I really have to start working because I have a four assignments, a bio report, two prelabs and an essay to work on next week. Not to mention studying for my first university exams. But in a month less two days, I will be back in Antigonish, and I won’t have to think about DISP until January.
    Oh, and FYI: I didn’t end up stealing Pierre’s sweatshirt because it was XXLarge and in Pierre’s words: it could be used to catch wind for a sailboat.

    Reach for Dal update #1

    November 17th, 2006

    Pierre and co. are in the top eight! They’ve made it to the quarterfinals!
    They also one first place in a preliminary online game. They won Dalhousie sweatshirts (I’m going to try to steal Pierre’s).

    Reaching for Dalhousie Once Again

    November 16th, 2006

    Tomorrow morning, Pierre, Matthew Stevens, and that other guy, will represent the Regional in this year’s Reach For Dalhousie. I can’t wait.
    I know they’re going to do awesome. Reach for Dal will ask for questions covering many different sorts of intelligences, like linguistic, historical, logical, geographic, visual-spacial, etc., etc., and I really think this year’s team has their bases covered. I mean, they’ve got Pierre, who knows more general knowledge about languages, politics, history, geography and classical music than anyone I know, and they’ve got Matthew Stevens, who is the Andrew Brennan of the class of 2007.
    Good luck, guys! I’ll be rooting for you, and I’ll try to stop in and see some of your games if I have the time.
