Bike Share Design Contest

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Here’s a competition for art/bike people:

Remember that bike share program we used to have? Well its been revamped! Now known as ThoroughTreds, this program lends bicycles to Skidmore students at no charge in order to cut back on our greenhouse gas emissions and promote a healthy lifestyle. In order to celebrate the relaunching of the Skidmore bike share program we are holding a bicycle design competition! We want you to come up with a way to decorate the ThoroughTreds’ bicycles that shows off your creative thought! Submit a decoration design for a bicycle with a helmet to go along. The bicycles need to be functional so don’t design anything that will fall apart or inhibit it from being ridden, otherwise go crazy! We will choose the top three designers that will implement their art on the bikes. This is a chance to have your own permanent mobile art exhibition! We await your designs!

The deadline is April 22. Submit your designs to

Create the “Skidmore Burger” and Win Stuff

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

These burgers look like cat turds

Starting tomorrow until October 11, Jacob & Anthony’s American Grille will be accepting submissions for the first J&A Skidmore Burger. Using the entry form, email with a full description, including bun, condiments, and a side or whatever. Winner gets a $250 gift certificate and the pride of seeing their creation on the menu for a few weeks.

My submission is guacamole, bacon, cheddar, chipotle mayo, and jalapeños on brioche. I think it goes without saying that these bold, Latin flavors fully encapsulate the CTM lifestyle.

On a sidenote, I didn’t even know this restaurant existed, but the menu looks decent in a Cheesecake Factory kind of way.


Accepted Candidates Challenge

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Listen up kiddies,

Today is Accepted Students Day and all those Mother and Fathers walking around with stern looks on their faces, slowly realizing that their precious little loved ones are now out of diapers and launching themselves into the world of cigarette smoke and Heideggerarian tomes are here because their kids got a fat acceptance envelope in the mail welcoming them to the Skidmore College Class of 2015.

What I want is a picture of one of those terrified, soon-be-wildly-in-debt parents holding a copy of the Skidmore Unofficial Freshman Orientation Guide and giving a nice cheesy thumbs up. If you snap said picture and email it to I will reward you with a six pack of amazing tasting brewskis and a sloppy wet kiss on the cheek/forehead.

This is not a joke. A picture like that would make all the time I’ve spent in front of a computer writing about Skidmore seem worthwhile and give me a sense of personal affirmation so please just do it.

Notes From The Underground

Thursday, November 4th, 2010


This happened. When I  click the link it leads nowhere because Skidmore has smartly limited access to the group. That being said I’ll buy a 6-pack for whoever can get me a login. Does that sound creepy? I’m not trying to scam on any pre-frosh or anything I just want to snoop around on all the gossip and be there to see their reactions when they find out they’ve ended up at a school with a serious 4Loko addiction.
