Skeleton puffin' on cigs, so Skidmore!

Skeleton puffin’ on cigs, so Skidmore!

If you’re a fresh-faced First Year, you’re probably getting tired of hearing about how crazy Moorebid is from upperclassmen. You’re probably thinking, All of the Skidmore parties I’ve been to have been, like, hella tame. Are these old fucks even capable of going hard? 

Look, I’m not going to take that personally. As a senior, I’ve learned to control my emotional reactions to clueless freshers like you. As a preface, I would like to present my own personal experiences at Moorebid Ball.

Moorebid: A Tremendous Pain in the Ass

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

So at this point, SGA’s plan to charge $10 for a mere 800 Moorebid tickets has pretty much made the rounds across campus, so I won’t belabor it or anything. If you’re into sweating a lot and throwing yourself into freshmen, then I guess it sucks, but alas, life goes on.

Anyway, people are getting awfully pissed off on the Facebook page, and watching the SGA people jump through hoops to assuage the backlash is both entertaining and kinda sad, like watching a guy on stilts try to put out a grease fire. As a result, a rival Facebook group appropriately titled “Occupy Moorebid – Operation Case Center” became active a few days ago.

Prove You’re Better Than Your Peers by Winning These Moorebid Contests

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Relevant

Thankfully, Moorebid—Skidmore’s storied Halloween tradition of grinding with strangers, going to the hospital, and getting trampled— is happening again this year. AWESOME.

In preparation for this historic shit-show, the nightmarish hell-steed that is Skids Scribner will be holding two contests: one for a Moorebid poster and another for Moorebid DJs.

So graphic artists/disc jockeys, send in your poster/dubstep playlist to sgaIHB@gmail.com and hopefully nobody will get hurt (someone probably will).

Submissions due: Thursday October 11

Moorebid 2011 – A Whole New Meaning for the Word ‘Zombie’

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Aww yeah. Uh huh uh huh.

Dress up, drink up, get low get low get low. Moorebid is coming! (fbook)

For the oblivious and uninformed, Moorebid will be in the Sports Center this year because the traditional venue  – Case Center  – was making it difficult for Campo to efficiently cart kids outside to waiting ambulances. I’m sad that we lost the two story club at Ibiza feel, but there’s something nostalgic and comforting about dancing in a dark smelly gym, you know?

Don’t hesitate to call Campo if you or one of your friends is in trouble, but once you do, get the hell out of there, because the new Alcohol and Drug Policy will punish you for being underage and in the mere presence of alcohol or ganja, being too ‘visibly’ drunk, or carrying a six-pack. If the goal of the policy revision is to keep kids safer, then maybe that document needs some rethinking, huh?

We probably won’t see a repeat of the Great Four Loko Massacre of 2010, since the life-giving elixir was banned in New York last year, but in all seriousness, please be safe, pace yourself, drink water, watch your friends. Still, have fun though.

CSGR Hotline Telethon

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

CSGR representative Joe Yanks ’11 writes in to tell us about The Center’s new hotline and the chance to win free money:

This Thursday and Friday the Center for Sex and Genders will be holding a telethon on their 24 hour weekend hotline phone and you will have TWO chances to win $35 to the SkidShop.  To win simply  be the 20th caller on Thursday and Friday night at 6:30 pm (On the dot!). The hotline number is: (518) 256.1439.    Make sure you save it in your phone!
The hotline is active throughout the semester from Thursday night at 7 pm until Monday afternoon at 1 pm (when the Center re-opens for the week).  You can call the number at any point during the weekend for immediate help (If you’re in an uncomfortable situation, need instant help, etc) or just  have a question or need advice. With the spookiest weekend of first semester coming up, it’s definitely going to be a great idea to keep the number handy!
Just as a reminder as well, if you need any supplies  (condoms, dams, lube, pregnancy tests, vibrators, pamphlets, etc.), the Center is located on the third floor of Case Center and is open during the week, as well as on Saturdays from 2-4 pm. We are student run and anonymous on all matters.
