Caleb Sleeps Through Class

Last week we were ending sound class and a classmate whispers to the teacher, "Can we all leave really quietly and leave Caleb sleeping in here?" Our teacher nods and finishes up class, whispering our homework to us. Then, all leaving in unusual silence, Caleb is left with his Zs. About half an hour later, he's still there. Not only did we manage a picture, but our teacher posted it on Blackboard for a group discussion. YES.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

This movie was surprisingly AWESOME. I was not expecting much, but could barely stop laughing throughout the entire thing! I recommend seeing it pronto, it's especially great for the young adult crowd. What astonished me more was that a lot of the jokes won't be (the same kind of) funny in five years, or even one year! A very in-the-moment film. Speedy, quick humor. Great animation. See it!

Flight Affair

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

This movie simultaneously blew my mind, frustrated me,
and amazed me. I feel like it has cause for a second
watch, with much discussion and reading into.
I'd suggest you see it, if only to talk about it!

Stacy Dupree Covers 'Silver Spring' by Stevie Nicks

I don't know if it's the best thing in the entire world, but I surely enjoyed it -- especially after being raised with Stevie Nicks and growing up to love Eisley.

Life Review #37,874

I feel like a life review is in order.

My last real post was an account of my first week of school. Well now we're on the fourth week, so a quick, bulleted list will do.

  • I love my Writer's Workshop class. It's my first Creative Writing class and it has been SO unbelievably easy for me to make stuff up. And it's fun, too! My teacher even read my homework to the class, so I felt good about my work instead of embarrassed. That was a good day.
  • MCAD took us all snow tubing the other day. It was my first time going to a real place. They had shaped hills and conveyor belts that would pull us up. I ate a lot o' snow and felt drooled on by the elements, but it was a total blast. Missed the Super Bowl, but I'm okay with that.
  • This last weekend was full of music. I had a small jam session with Gina and found out she plays gorgeously. She's inspired me to learn classical guitar and we're hopefully going to be doing some duets together for fun. Time to learn Treble Clef!
  • To continue the musical weekend, I met Michelle's friend, Adam, and we all went out to a few music stores and played around on stuff. I picked up this custom Les Paul/Gibson that cost $5000 and it played like a dream! I really want an electric guitar; it offers so many different ways to play! That plus a bow?! Oh gosh. I'd be in heaven.
  • I've really been enjoying fellowship lately. Just for the fact that I know the people better and it feels more like a household. I signed up for the Renewed Mind class and can't wait for the Valentines branch meeting coming up. 'Tis refreshing, honestly.
  • Instead of studying abroad, which has seemed completely out of reach financially, I'm looking into doing the AICAD mobility and studying at LCAD next year. That's in Laguna Beach, California. That plus Pixar? Possibly with Michelle, too? Gosh. I'm SO excited for that.
  • Due to a broken radiator, I've been sleeping on my mattress in the living room the past week. It's way too hot in there; it's not restful. Plus I always woke up with one too many boogers. Gross! Also in a continuous state: I've been listening to "Bruises" nonstop.
  • Yesterday I also submitted a cut paper piece into the Foot in the Door 4 exhibition at the MIA. It happens once every ten years and anyone who enters something is in. I stood in line for about 2 hours. Worth it.
  • Marissa sent us a sweet Morse Code letter on REALLY old paper and sealed with wax. She's pretty much one of the best people ever. I can't wait to see her again.

To come in the near future:
  • Recess Club is playing Zombies in the snow next Saturday, and following that will be hot cocoa and a screening of Dead Snow in the College Center. I can't wait, and it feels good to get the club up and running again. I was kind of failing at that.
  • Tomorrow I'm going to a student panel about the LCAD thing, and then on Friday I'm meeting with Alexis to talk seriously about it.
  • Made at MCAD is coming up.
  • I want to enter the Valentine card contest and also make cards for everyone here and there. I always seem to slack on holidays and birthdays. Oops!
  • Deadlines, Deadlines, Deadlines!

Virtual Barbershop

Put on your headphones and get a haircut from the Virtual Barbershop.
It only works with headphones on, so try it out!
And don't be alarmed if you think there's a stranger suddenly in the room.

That's What She Said

"Wow, I've never had 7/8 black in me!"

"They were peaking constantly so I didn't know what to do."

Teach: "What is this?"
Avid Student: "A butt plug."
Teach: "...No. This is not a butt plug."

Oh I love Sound Class.
