What’s up daddies and children of daddies. Have you ever read The New York Times and thought, “Okay, but I wish this pertained to me specifically.”
Well look no further, dear and valued reader. It’s us, your past, present, and future favorite news source: Skidmore Unofficial. Due to a brief hiatus, you are either too senile to remember us or too young to know who we are. Our noble mission is to bring you, the skidmore student, the fun, sexy scoop on everything (and we mean everything) going on on and near our beautiful, fugly campus. This coverage is including but not limited to: concerts, club performances, speakers, open mics, comedy, campus events, sporting events, and whatever else we think you delicious skanks desperately need to know about. We pledge to maintain the highest journalistic and moral integrity while reserving the right to goof. Read to keep up with campus goings-ons, read to tell your friends that you read something today, or read because we seem like we might secretly be cute and you want to have a talking point if you ever meet us around campus.

RIP Fall Fun Day

RIP Fall Fun Day


Thursday, April 18th, 2013


Sup clowns. What are you doing this Saturday? If you answered anything other than “going to Earth Day,” then you’re a bigger clown than I thought.

Every year, WSPN and EAC put together a concert with a whole bunch of bands. It has rained every year since Earth Day 2010. Hopefully it won’t this weekend.

Here’s the list of AWESOME bands:

There’s also going to be A 75-FOOT SLIP AND SLIDE! A ROCK CLIMBING WALL! A BEER GARDEN (“Biergarten” if you must)! A PETTING ZOO!


AND IT’S ON 4/20.

You high jackasses are going to fucking love this shit. I mean, A FUCKING PETTING ZOO. ON 4/20. WHAT A BAD IDEA.

“Fifty” Years of WSPN @ Case Gallery

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013


Tomorrow, come marvel at the historical relics of our humble college radio station, WSPN. Every year, the kids cool enough to get elected to the Board haul out some old junk from the office and hang it all up on the walls of Case Gallery, and tomorrow, they’ll be celebrating fifty years of broadcasting.*

According to the email I received from the lovely, effervescent, ambitious, beautiful GM, Annie Auchincloss, this year’s exhibit will include “letters from Prez Palamountain, telegrams from the FCC, and citation letters from Campo,” as well as:

  • The time WSPN was offered $25,000 for their call letters
  • The time WSPN almost died
  • The time WSPN got into a really big fight with SkidNews
  • A short history of really bad WSPN logos
  • An even shorter history of really good ones

The charming, boyish, dignified, persnickety programmer Mac Parsons will be providing tunes at tomorrow night’s opening, and apparently, there will be FOOD and BOOZE.

*The station was actually founded in 1973. Who could have guessed that a bunch of tight-jeans-wearing humanities majors would be so hopeless at math?

Fight Week

Monday, April 8th, 2013


Skidmore’s conflict resolution club, FIGHTClub, has organized a whole bunch of events as part of their annual Fight Week. The week is vaguely 60s themed, which is kind of ironic because I don’t really associate “conflict resolution” with that decade. College students being gunned down, Vietnamese people being burned alive, and black people getting the shit beaten out of them, certainly, but not conflict resolution.

Here’s the full schedule:

  • Tuesday April 9, 8pm @ Spa: Fight Club Screening/Free Chipotle
  • Wednesday April 10, 8pm @ Case Green: Glow-in-the-dark Capture the Flag
  • Thursday April 11, 8pm @ Spa: “The Friend Zone Game” 
  • Friday April 12, 10pm @ Tang Roof: Screamfest/60s Party

Given the hotheaded shit going on in the post below, this all seems particularly relevant (also, free food).

The Mythic Figure @ Schick Gallery

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

I was told it would be okay to make a joke about this sculpture’s resemblance to a dinosaur turd, but I won’t because I’m a very mature writer

Tomorrow is the opening reception for “The Mythic Figure,” an exhibition of works by sculptors William Tucker and Ed Smith and painter Pamela Avril, at the Schick Gallery.

Apparently, this is the first sculpture show at the Schick, or at least the first in a very long time (I certainly don’t remember any other sculpture shows in my time here). It’s curated by John Galt (the art professor, not the famous objectivist revolutionary).

Also, there will probably delicious free food (the chicken satay/peanut sauce combo DESTROYED THE COMPETITION at the last Schick opening I attended).

Active Minds Panel

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Active Minds is a new club dedicated to raising awareness and confronting mental health issues on campus, and they’re holding their first event on Wednesday.

The event is an open panel for people struggling with stress and mental illness, and will feature Andrew Molteni, a clinical psychologist in Skidmore’s Psych Department; the director of Skidmore’s Counseling Center; and various student representatives  with experiences dealing with various mental health issues.

There will also be “baked goods” which could really mean anything. Delicious homemade cookies or a box of fucking Entenmann’s, who knows?

Margin Call Screening

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Yes, Penn Badgley from Gossip Girl is in this

Tomorrow, the up and coming Masters of the Universe at SkidMarket will be screening the brilliant and underrated Margin CallThe film details the first few hours of the global financial crisis at Lehman Brothers an unnamed investment bank, as a group of executives and analysts scramble to prepare for impending disaster. It’s riveting, and anybody with an interest in Wall Street or the state of the economy would be wise to attend this screening. It also has one of the better casts in recent memory.

SkidMarket is hedging against low attendance with the guarantee of pizza and soda. I’ve also been told that Occupy Case Walkway will be staging a protest.

FREE FOOD: Jacob & Anthony’s @ SkidShop

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Tasteful Design!

Last week, we promoted the Jacob & Anthony’s Skidmore Burger contest and I wowed you all with my recipe for the GREATEST FUCKING BURGER YOU WILL EVER HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF RAMMING DOWN YOUR EAT-HOLE. Well, the God of Cheapness is smiling down on us, because tomorrow, J&A will be outside the SkidShop giving away free food and hyping their contest.

The SkidShop and freebies go together like Walt and Jesse and if you’re on campus tomorrow afternoon, there’s really no reason to pass this up.
