Dies Ist Oktoberfest

Traditional Oktoberfest fun

This Saturday, come celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Bavaria by standing around awkwardly and nursing a Sam Adams on Case Green. It’s Oktoberfest, ya bozos.

Along with the all-day “Beer Garden” (which is really just a tent cordoned off with caution tape and guarded by a vigilant campo officer), there will be music, games, food, and local vendors giving away free shit.

Beer, however, will not be given away for free, and if you’re 21 and want to get rip-shit, you’ll have to  present your campus event card to one of your peers working catering. If you don’t have one, then you best head down to the Card Office soon.

The schedule of fun and games is vast and unlimited:

  • 12:30pm – Mini Frisbee Golf Game
  • 3:30pm – Class tug-o-war

Alright! Though I must say, it’s not at all surprising that SGA is fomenting class warfare, given President Matt Walsh’s history of SOCIALISM AND ISLAM.

In any event, live music will be covered by:

  • Punch Drunk Monkeys
  • Bo Peep and the Funk Sheep
  • Yo Soy Milk
  • Trophy Wives
  • Skinny White Folk

As they say in Google Translate Germany, “Glück, Spaß haben, und seien Sie vorsichtig!”

Saturday October 6, 12-4pm @ Case Green

Contra dancing! This Thursday at Falstaffs

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

By Brandon Dyer ’15

Before you ask, the steps are not up up down down left right left right B A.

Falstaff’s is frequently known as a home for Skidmore bands and raves, but this Thursday the folks at Lively Lucy’s are mixing it up a bit with some contra dancing.  Contra dancing is a partnered folk dance similar to square dancing, and… you know what? I’m just going to cut out the middleman and send you directly to the Wikipedia article I’m getting this from.  There will be a live band and caller, so this shit’s pretty authentic.  Newbies welcome and in fact encouraged to come.

Falstaff’s, this Thursday, 8 PM.  Be there or be square.

Trivia Night at Desperate Annie’s

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

What are you, twelve years old?

Something that has always struck me as kind of weird is the Disney marketing campaign where they have football players on the winning Super Bowl team yell, “I’m going to Disneyworld!” I mean, first of all, they are professional athletes who make millions of dollars a year. If they want to go to Disneyworld, they can just go. It’s not like they need to win the Super Bowl to go to Disneyworld.

“I’m going to Disneyworld!” –Guy who just won the Super Bowl

“Big deal! I’ve been here for a month!” –Guy who didn’t make the playoffs

Also, what adult person really wants to go to Disneyworld? Isn’t Disneyworld for kids? The only way that it would make any real sense for an athlete to yell, “I’m going to Disneyworld!” would be if that athlete was a child who could not just pick up and go to Disneyworld, and therefore his or her only means of getting there would be to compete in a sport where the national championships were actually held at Disneyworld. Obviously, that’s a ridiculous hypothetical that would never happen in real life.

Or is it?

When I was in high school, I was on the Academic Challenge team, and even though I sucked, the other members of the team were good enough that we qualified for nationals in Orlando, Florida.

That’s right. I went to fucking Disneyworld.

Even though I was the worst player on the team, and even though I only got two questions right in the entire competition, I had a great time. You see, trivia competitions really can make your dreams come true. Tomorrow night, Desperate Annie’s is hosting a trivia night at 8:00, and even though you probably won’t win a trip to Disneyworld, you can probably win a free pitcher of beer or something, which, at this point in my life, seems preferable. Plus it’s free to play, so you have nothing to lose but your pride.

Zombies, Humans to Invade Campus

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

From April 13th to 16th something called “Human vs. Zombies” is happening on the Skidmore campus.

From the website:

Humans vs. Zombies is a game of tag. All players begin as humans, and one is randomly chosen to be the ‘Original Zombie.’ The Original Zombie tags human players and turns them into zombies. The zombies must tag and ‘feed’ on a human every 48 hours or he starves to death and is out of the game.

Originally, when I saw the posters for this, I had some concerns most of which centered around the fact that, despite not having signed up for anything, I am already a human who roams the Skidmore campus and that, being a human, I am rarely in a good mood, so if some kid in zombie makeup tried to attack me I was probably going to respond in a distinctly human manner.

I read the rules, however, and it turns out that participants in the game have to wear a band around their arm or leg to identify them as such, so problem solved. If you are someone who casually wears arm or leg bands, sorry, karma is a bitch. In all seriousness, though, this actually looks like a well-designed game that could be fun.

I will not be participating because it involves staying on campus for three days straight and also because I am an adult twenty-one years old, but were I still living in the dorms I would probably give it some thought.
