OCCUPY SKIDMORE: Jump On It

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Yeah yeah, you all got the email a few minutes before 8:00, too. It’s no big journalistic effort on my part, but it’s the thought that counts.

Check out this terrifying quote from ‘an unemployed man in the southwest’, “[I'm] worried because I have three god kids that will need jobs in the next 6 years. Don’t know what to tell them. Go into debt for college?” Holy shit, this guy birthed 3 gods and he’s worried about their job prospects?

Needless to say I was relieved when this video of a Skidmore Alum got sent my way and I realized it’s not hard to get on TV because obviously once I get on TV I can use some networking skills and BAM, reality TV show.

So, according to this video when I sit in class stumbling, stuttering, trying to formulate my thoughts on the uh merits of uh Georg Lukács’ uh Marxist-ism, uh Modernist theory, I am simply preparing myself for the real world where uh…uh…uhsorry…I dunno when is the next Real World?
