Me one more time!

Homecoming Concert Split

Wow... the comedy show that is the Homecoming Concert on campus just took another turn...

They are splitting the concert into two locations. The official reason - space concerns. Nevermind the fact that when Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the Quad, it was packed out as far as the eye could see. Nevermind the fact that these two groups will probably draw just a fraction of that.

Apparently "space concerns" is the new buzzword for "We don't want the country crowd and the rap crowd mixing anymore." It's probably also code for "Alumni, people who don't pay for this concert, got pissed off and wanted a change." Let it be known that I am an alumnus, but I know any complaint I have about the matter should fall on deaf ears. My money didn't pay for this show. Still, if I was a student again, I'd be a bit ticked off.

This thing gets funnier by the day.

Homecoming attire

Hello all,

Someone told a friend of mine that since there is no homecoming ball, most of the kids here dress up in gowns and tuxes for the football game. Is this true? I'd hate the be the only one out there in a t-shirt.

thanks,
molly

and when they came for me...

I didn't realize that the bonfire was going to be in the form of a crucifix. I guess the University wanted to make sure that the Ying Yang Twins knew that they weren't welcome near the celebration and festivites. I mean, after all, it's just a logistics thing.

I can see the quote in the next CW:

You see we had to burn a giant cross to make sure the darkies knew they weren't welcome...
