BlowScopes Your guide to shunning all logic and turning to the stars...

Aquarius: January 20 - February 18 - A menacing man will present you with a blue pill, which will return you to your current life, and a red pill, which will open your eyes to your robot-controlled world. Go wild. Take both. See what happens.

Pisces: February 19 - March 19 - Run! Run! The ferrets are coming! Run, run for your life! Ru-Aries: March 20 - April 20 - Don’t be afraid to bring your computer to LTS. They know that you can get a porn virus on perfectly respectable websites. They won’t laugh at you behind your back and refer to you as “that dumbass.” They won’t mock everything about you. They probably also won’t fix your computer. Taurus: April 21 - May 21 Don’t make eye contact with Michael Bublé in that bar. Like an animal, he will take offense and attack. His attacks are like his songs: slow, painful and close to home.

Gemini: May 22 - June 21 Today is your day! Seize it! Take a chance--talk to that cute professor you’ve been eyeing all semester. Take a chance--mix your whites and colors in the wash; nothing will run. Take a chance--dash across the street without looking. By the way, tomorrow you will be dead. Cancer: June 22 - July 22 You will attempt to enroll in a Justice Brandeis Semester but will immediately be hit by a giant burst of apathy which will last until summer. Leo: July 23 - August 23 - As if you needed an excuse to run naked through the campus center shouting “I must be the change I wish to see in the world.”

Virgo: August 24 - September 23 - You are pretty sure horrible things happened to the last person who unlocked the secrets in the dusty tome you’ve cracked open. But damn it, you’ve got to figure out when your soaps are on. Libra: September 24 - October 23 - Your friends will again refuse to call you “The General Sherman of McDonalds runs.”

Scorpio: October 24 - November 22 - There’s no problem money can’t fix. This is the phrase that will go through you head over and over as you suffocate to death in a pool of money. Capricorn: December 22 January 19 - The stars are unclear: the professor will either hold your work up as exemplary or shoot you as an example to the others. Sagittarius: November 23 December 21 - Horrible things go on in the nicest of places. Still, the slave-trading nursery is going to be the weirdest thing you’ve seen in a while.

No-Shave November Celebrated Month-Long Ritual Grows on Students

Brandeis students stand up for a Convicted on all Charges wide array of important causes: cage-free eggs, the Israel-Palestine conflict, climate change, etc. The Blowfish would like to draw attention to the newest fad at Brandeis. Students have decided to keep it all, that’s right, they have decided not to shave. Including their pubes. The Blowfish had an up close and fursonal interview with Seth Lagenstein this past weekend, inquiring why he chooses not to shave. “At first I canceled all my waxing and threading appointments to prove my masculinity, it earned me major man-points to have that goatee. But now, I am just trying to prepare for a greater cause.” In fact, Seth has started a new career in posing for fake ID photos. “I really want to make a difference for young people today”. Apparently Seth looks just like ten other kids at Brandeis thanks to his facial accessories. Also thanks to those scandalous pictures that we caught of him on Chat Roulette we also know that he looks like ten other kids at Brandeis.

Sadly, not everyone at Brandeis has the ability to grow body hair. Josh Stavencord explained to the Blowfish, “I just don’t understand, I used to be able to grow hair, but I’m balding at 18.” Unfortunately for Josh, he has tried everything from Rogaine to human Chia with no luck in the hair matter. He just can’t grow enough short curly hairs to plant trees in the jungle. He later tried transferring hair from down there and from his eyebrows to the rest of his face. “I just want that friction you get from more hair down there, my belly button that is.” Being the egalitarian institution that it is, The Blowfish wanted to hear from a woman’s perspective on not shaving this November. Kelly Katz expressed her views on the hot and hairy topic, “I decided not to shave, because I want to express my femininity in a new way.” Kelly chose not to comment on her traumatizing experience where she shaved off all her eyebrows. “It’s quite the touchy subject, even after I went back to threading.” However, she was willing to share that she has purposefully neglected tweezing away the mole from her backside for the entire month. It appears that at Brandeis body hair provides so much more than warmth.

Pachanga Actually Justice Training Exercise Stolen Reporter Template is Totally Not a MadLib

Through intrepid reporting and talking to guys in basements with overly elaborate security protocols, The Blowfish has discovered that the Justice staged a good deal of the controversial events surrounding Pachanga in order to school rookie reporters in the grittier aspects of muckraking. We have secured a copy of one of the templates that Justice reporters fill their notebooks well: After the (synonym of fracas) following (campus event), Brandeis police (verb ending in -ed) a Brandeis student found (verb ending in -ing). Fellow student Timothy Grabber was at the scene. “Listen, I was with (student) all night,” said Grabber. “He was fine, until he went to a party in (dry quad) and had (number more than 10) beers. After that he was (verb ending in -ing) all over the place.” Brandeis police claimed that the student attacked them using his (body part) and (other body part). Other students, however, both in the room and on the Justice website, have disputed this claim. “It is absolutely ridiculous,” said (fake name of alumnus), commenting on (unrelated article). “The Justice should stick a (garden tool) up its (orifice). What really happened that night is that

(expletive) Officer (racial slur), who should be (disciplinary action), beat the (bodily fluid) out of poor (explicit mention of student’s name).” According to sources, (other student) was not even a little drunk, having only drunk a mug of (brand of tea) while poring over a volume by (Enlightenment thinker). After police officers saw him with a video camera, they beat him with a (piece of sports equipment). Meanwhile (first student), who was throwing up (building material) by that point, maintained his dignity. He attempted to escape custody using a (invention from before 1900), but was brought down by the heroic actions of (doggy star of children’s television show). After the outcry over our previous coverage of this issue, we cannot help but feel (negative emotion) over this. However, we cannot help but look to our hero, (character in Citizen Kane), for inspiration. Can we really leave the Brandeis community in doubt as to who the most (adjective ensuring these students will never get a job) students on campus are, or whether the campus police are (dystopian author + ian) or (something else smart)? It is a matter of journalistic integrity, which is not something that just grows on (general category of plant).
