WHAT’S on!

Editors ‘

LETTER It’s Never Too Hot to Party! As hard as it is to imagine for one to be ‘beached out’, the mid-summer lull is upon us, which means that it’s time to get creative with our free time. Parks and walks, and afternoons on a dock are all fun and swell, but the sun eventually bears to be too much. As this occurs, especially with July temperatures, it’s time to move in doors, and in doing so, what better venture than that of the brain-thumping, hip-shaking, sweatdrenched endeavor of the nightclub! For encouragement of your post-class adventures, CT sat down with the country’s top female DJ to discuss her past and present,

as well as her side projects focused on furthering the club music industry. We also still squeezed in some tips on the best jobs for coeds, relationship help, off-campus living advice and a few digs here and there on some social occurrences that need to be the subject of mockery! All in all, it’s only a matter of time before responsibility strikes, so tune in, turn on and rock the remaining days of summer in all of its glory!

Daniel Sutphin

If you have any comments you’d like to share with CT, send them in to mail@mycampustalk.com and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win prizes!! You may only be entered once, so don’t send us 50 comments thinking you’ll enhance your chances of winning! Employees of Campus Talk magazine, their relatives, their twins from alternate universes and their healthcare providers are prohibited from entering this drawing. Everyone else is eligible to participate… except for pandas. No pandas allowed.

GET A JOB, BUM!

Perfect By Ami Gavarian

Part-time Jobs

For College Coeds After partying for an entire semester (and two-and-a-half weeks of vacation time) on your student loan’s dime, you’re left with little – if anything – in the tank… I mean bank. You’re not quite ready to give up your nightly bar-hopping habits just yet, but you realize that something’s gotta change if you’re going to keep up your partying at this pace. That something, unfortunately, is a job. Don’t worry! Like the Hilton sisters and Rev Run’s kids, you, too, can make an easy buck exerting less energy than Jamie-Lynn Sigler at an all-you-can-eat buffet. Read on and discover the wonders of collegiate employment… at least those of the legal persuasion.

Take A Test Get A No… not that kind. Like the Promotion god-awful FX show Testees, university science and research departments are always looking for unscrupulous and rather unhygienic coeds to help further their studies in everything from penis creams to estrogen levels… in men. You could easily net anywhere from $50–$100 per test session for something as mundane as electroshock therapy! 10

campus talk

july 2012

There’s no need to keep pouring your hard-earned cash into every local bar and club when you could just as easily have them pay you for your not-so-hard-earned work. Getting the word out about a certain club will net you free drinks all night long and a percentage of the take at the door. It’s like sneaking into a bar and robbing their register… only legal!

Thicker Than Blood Get On The Along the same lines as using Bus… boy your body for money is the age-old occupation of donating blood and plasma. Blood will net you about as much as that lame guitarist on the street corner with $3.50 in his open case. Plasma, however, can supplement your weekly partying habits by garnering you enough loot to drink all night during 2-for-1 beer and leave you some scratch for a soggy slice of pizza when you stumble out of the club like a high school freshman who just tried wine coolers for the first time.

Free food? Check. Hot sorority chicks abound? Check. Meager compensation for eating and lounging around attractive females for a few hours? Check. Sorority house busboys are the hedge fund CEOs of the collegiate employment landscape. They get fed and paid to socialize with the hottest girls on campus. While you’ll probably make only $20 per night, you really can’t put a price on inside access to hot chicks running around in skimpy shorts and tight tees.

Totally useless fact: TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be typed using the letters from only one row of the keyboard.

ESTROGEN ON THE ROCKS!

s ’ uy G A to Guide By Brian

Hodges

y l r i G rinks D D

At some point in this planet’s drinking history, society decreed that a man’s drink must be brown, smell like ass and burn a hole in your stomach. Admit it… beer is only slightly better. Compare that to the brightly colored, sweetly flavored, giggle-inducing drinks that women are allowed to order without judgment. What you wouldn’t give to trade that vomit-on-the-rocks for something that tasted like guava or lollipops. Believe it or not, there are times and places where girly drinks are perfectly acceptable for a manly man such as yourself. 12

campus talk

|

july 2012

COLORFUL FRUITY MIXERS

Notable Examples: Long Island Iced Tea, Sex on the Beach, Anything with a “-sour” at the end The beauty of these drinks is that the girl whose judgment you’re trying to compromise doesn’t even notice that she’s drinking alcohol. But unless you want the meatheads to give you a swirly, don’t you dare order yourself a Malibu-and-Anything. How to Get Away With It: If you’re just dying for a Fuzzy Navel, find a Japanese restaurant and order a Scorpion Bowl for the table. At least then you’re not being girly… just sociable.

WINE COOLERS AND “HARD” JUICES Notable Examples: Bartles & Jaymes, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Smirnoff Ice

After sucking down your 100th piss-water Coors Light, a bottle of something cold and tangy (yet still alcoholic) sounds pretty good. But admit it… it’s hard to bring that purple six-pack up to the register without feeling like a teenage prom queen in a tiara. How to Get Away With It: Newly 21 year olds are your safety net. Too young to know better, they’re not going to judge you for cracking open that bottle of Bacardi Silver. They’re just happy you’re sharing and they’re finally of age.

Totally useless fact: The first female guest host of Saturday Night Live was Candace Bergen.


ESTROGEN ON THE ROCKS!

COSMO-TINIS

Notable Examples: Cosmopolitan, Appletini, pretty much anything in a triangular glass Thanks to those promiscuous ladies from Sex & the City, every woman who wants to feel a bit classy – while paying through the teeth – orders some kind of Martini or Cosmopolitan. They’re often brightly colored with a token amount of fruit dumped in, but they really don’t taste any better than the ass-water we men have to deal with on a daily basis. How to Get Away With It: Why would you want to? Martinis are your last stop on the train to full-blown alcoholism. And if you’re going to drink something that makes you gag, you might as well stick to a concoction with two olives in it, if you catch my drift.

FROZEN MONSTROSITIES

Notable Examples: Piña Colada, Strawberry Margarita, Mudslide

GIRLY SHOTS

Notable Examples: Lemondrop, Kamikaze, BJ

As if the little umbrella and wedge of fruit or Godiva chocolate weren’t a dead giveaway, even the glasses look like a shapely woman’s figure! Add to that the fact that it takes about 20 minutes to make, and you’re practically begging the bartender to teabag your prissy little drink.

It takes a truly remarkable girl to lick it, slam it and suck it with a shot of Cuervo. For the rest, those brilliant marketing people at Get You S**tfaced, Inc. are always inventing sexysounding and pleasant-tasting shooters… shooters that you are not allowed to shoot, no matter how much you want to.

How to Get Away With It: The beach. Seriously, it’s your only option. So, ask yourself, “What would Jimmy do?” Hit the tiki bar every day in Mexico, that’s what… because as soon as you get home and into a place with a non-thatched roof, those coconutty parfaits are off limits.

How to Get Away With It: The only excuse you have is if you’re ordering a large number of shots for a crowd of at least 50 percent women. Then you can pass it off as, “It’s just easier to order 10 Buttery Nipples. I don’t want the bartender to spit in my Wild Turkey.”

Totally useless fact: The first female monster to appear on the big screen was Bride of Frankenstein.

THE BINARY LANGUAGE OF LOVE HEADER

The Science Of

Sex:

Do Nerds Make Better Lovers? As a culture, we’ve been conditioned to believe that high intelligence equals social retardation and sexual incompetence. But don’t be so quick to write off those skinny guys with the Coke-bottle glasses, pocket protectors and 4.0 averages. Romantically speaking, nerds are a largely untapped resource. Given the chance, some of them could be far more than just the creepy geniuses who let you copy their homework. Is it possible? Do nerds make better lovers? Read on and make your own decision.

By Brian Hodges

HISTORY NERDS

These guys are bitter and pissed off at everything you can imagine: politicians, the media, religion, Hollywood, rich people, communists, governments (all of them), the medical community, the post office, Republicans, Democrats, the Jefferson Administration, patriotism and of course Wal*Mart. When it comes to the horrors we have perpetuated on humankind throughout the bloody reign of Imperialism, he claims to bear the burden of “knowing the full truth.” He’s also a colossal and unbearable tool. Still, you may find that righteous anger translates well into bedroom passion.

COMPUTER NERDS

SCIENCE NERDS

Don’t let the test tubes, gyroscopes and pasty complexions deceive you. Chemistry, Physics and Engineering majors spend ten hours a day working with equations, proofs and numerical values that are far too small for the human mind to comprehend. They’re just aching for a physical outlet, and when the moment of truth finally arrives, they are amazingly “precise.” The glaring exceptions to this rule seem to be Biology majors, who, for as knowledgeable as they are about the mammalian reproductive system, are curiously ignorant as to how the female body actually works. 14

ENGLISH NERDS

This guy is romantic, no doubt about it. He’s been studying classical language and iambic pentameter for a couple years now. He’ll weave sonnets and love poems enough to make you go weak in the knees. Simple birthday cards become lyrical works of art. Your friends will be jealous knowing that you have the sensitive boyfriend they’ve all been dreaming of. Of course, all that romancing can be tiring, even for a nerd, so once you’re in bed, he kind of expects you to do all the work.

MATH NERDS

These nerds come in two groups: the ones in Calculus and the ones in Accounting 101. The Calc guys, with those heavy-duty graphing calculators, are really just Astrophysicists in denial (see Science Nerds). Those other guys, unfortunately, are on a collision course with an adding machine and life as a number cruncher. They may be in a fraternity today, but ten years from now, they’ll be praying to get kidnapped just for something interesting to happen in their lives.

These nerds also come in two diverse groups: the chubby, socially stunted cubicle dwellers who work in programming and web design and the cocky skater-gear-wearing rave kids from software innovation and iMac technical support. The former kind, as expected, is clumsy and inexperienced in the bedroom whereas the latter “neo-hipsters” can only get it up while high on Ecstasy. Either way, you ain’t gettin’ any. But at least with the software guys, you’re guaranteed a kickass party beforehand. With the web guys, you’ll probably spend the whole evening playing World of Warcraft. So on behalf of nerds everywhere: please, please, PLEASE give us a chance. You may think of that nerdy guy down the hall as just a friend and potential tutor, but given the chance, he may just gyrate your cranium out of its helio-centric orbit… and, oh baby, where else are you going to get pillow talk like that?

Totally useless fact: The 80s song “Rosanna” from the Eighties was written about Rosanna Arquette, the actress.

GOING GREEN ROCKS!

Green Tips: By Ami Gavarian

Dorm & Apartment

Edition

College students are known for their inherent thriftiness, and it doesn’t surprise me that you’re always looking for the cheapest, easiest way out of any situation. Here are some simple tips to help save you money while you help save the planet in return.

Reduce By Reusing

With water consumption at an all-time high and resources dwindling by the day, we must take preventative measures to ensure there’s still some H2O left for future generations. Well, my fellow college coeds, here’s a tip I’m sure you’ll all appreciate: group showers! No, not with your sweaty roommates… I’m talking about buddying-up with that hot girl next door. You’ll be saving water AND working on your weekend hook-up simultaneously!

Every college student on the planet carries one of two things with them at all times: a plastic water bottle or a red Dixie cup filled with beer. Far be it from us at CT to discourage your daily supply of hydration – be it alcoholic or otherwise – but if you’re going to consume that often, the very least you can do is reuse your water bottle or plastic cup. Every year, countless amounts of plastic drinking apparatuses are trashed, wasting tons of energy in production of more bottles and cups. Furthermore, you’ll be saving upwards of $300 a year by reusing your water bottle instead of discarding them after a single use and having to buy more.

As an added bonus, you can save money on your bills by hand-washing your dirty clothes in the sink or tub, then hanging them to dry. It’s important to keep in mind that your larger appliances, like washer/dryer units, tend to make up the bulk of your electric bill each month.

There you have it! Follow these simple and easy tips and you’ll be heavier in the pockets while making an incredible effort towards thwarting climate change. Then again, the hotter the weather, the skimpier the clothes worn by sexy coeds across campus…

Wet T-shirt Contest! It’s Getting Hot In Hurrrrr

A little-known tip that most apartmentdwelling students fail to take into account is the cost – both economically and eco-friendly – of your heater. A quick trip to your local Home Depot will get you an aluminum wrap that will help save you a pretty penny on your electric bill, as well as help save the Earth some much-needed energy. Simply place the wrap around your heater and watch as it cuts your bill by almost 25 percent of the original cost. 16

TRADING PLACES…

YIN and WANG By Darien Arden

Pro Barbie “You don’t have a problem getting laid, it’s just that easy.” Josh, 30

“Because the pressure of running society is getting to me.” Jesse, 27

“So I don’t have to do manginas anymore.” Sam, 24

“So I could feel my boobs all day.” Casey, 21

“So I can get laid any day, any time I want to.” TJ, 24 “So I can avoid manual labor.” Ben, 23 “So I could look at boobs in the mirror.” Eric, 25

What would happen if the roles were switched and you v up with a little something extra, (or missing a little something)? There are definitely some titillating reasons why I would want to switch sexes. No bathroom? No problem! Hello bush, tree, patio! And it can finally be okay for me to go outside shirtless and talk about boobs all day. Wait, I already do all this! Welcome to the wonderful world of yin and wang. See what your fellow Kens and Barbies are saying about switching sexes.

“So I could just lie there during sex.” Mike, 23 “I want to be able to play with myself in the mirror… and so I could be a lesbian.” Brian, 26 “So my balls aren’t always sweaty.” Alan, 25

Pro Ken “You don’t have to worry about getting pregnant.” Jami, 23

“I would like to have no real stress or responsibility.” Gay, 46

“Guys don’t have to pay for weddings.” Ashley, 23

“So I don’t have to shave my legs.” Chrissy, 23

“So I could get a lot of girls and not be called a ho.” Kat, 22

“I could hook up with Barbie all the time.” John, 23

Totally useless fact: The wingspan of the B-36, a retired USAF bomber, was twice as long.

“To not have to go through the process of having babies.” Katie, 23 “Their brain is so simple. It would be nice to have a simple thought process.” Stacy, 40 “So I can pee anywhere.” Abby, 20 “So you don’t have to put on make-up when you go out. Less maintenance.” Cherise, 23 campus talk

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. A college’s student body is composed of the sons and daughters of the very rich who could not meet the academic requirements of any other college. Low and behold, the college basketball team wins every game and dominates their league. All this success is due to one amazing player – a cross between Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. This kid is terrific. The player and the team become the center of nationwide media attention. The student body is thrilled. Now, the NCAA goes to the college and asks for proof of this player’s academic eligibility. The college administration promises such documentation in a few days. The faculty works night and day coaching the student for the crucial test. The day of the public examination arrives, and the entire student body is there to support their star player. A professor stands, and announces the first question, “How much is five and two?” The student frowns in deep concentration – he thinks, he sweats, he shakes with effort. At last he shouts the answer, “Seven”. The entire student body rises, and as a single voice, they cry. “Give him another chance. Give him another chance.”

Three vampires walk into a bar and sit down at a table. The waitress comes over and asks the first vampire what he would like. The first vampire responds, “I vould like some blood.” The waitress turns to the second vampire and asks what he would like. The vampire responds, “I vould like some blood.” The waitress turns to the third vampire and asks what he would like. The vampire responds, “I vould like some plasma.” The waitress looks up and says, “Let me see if I have this order correct. You want two bloods and a blood light?” Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Totally useless fact: “Dreamt” is the only English word that ends in the letters “mt”.

THE FRank’s stunt double

Oh Frank,

I guess it was bound to happen. After a long summer of ROCKIN anonymous sex, I hooked up with one skank too many and gave myself crabs. What do I do now? Trent I’d start by reflecting on the irony of a guy such as yourself calling anyone else a skank. Then, I don’t know, go to the doctor or something, dumbass. FRANK THOUGHTS: If it’s never burned when you pee, you’ve never lived… prior to the 80’s. These days, put the freakin rubber on.

Hey Frank,

I was mowing my parents’ lawn and somehow got poison ivy. I am a complete itchy mess. Any advice on how to get through this personal hell? Duane Get some good ‘roids and don’t scratch and touch your wiener. FRANK FACT: Frank once ate a leaf of poison ivy on a hundred dollar bet. The guy had no idea Frank was immune to the oils. Unfortunately it had been sprayed with pesticides so he puked for like ten days.

Frankalanka

When did “geek” suddenly become cool? Remember when we used to make fun of nerds and stuff? Why are they suddenly all over the place and getting girls? Troy It’s called the Internet my friend. They’re still not cool, but now that they finally have a place to meet and have sex amongst themselves, they rarely feel the need to wander into venues where they might meet and endure the abuse of meatheads such as yourself. FRANK THOUGTS: Don’t you sometimes yearn for the good old days of the Internet when the sexy redhead you’d spent all night chatting with turned out to be a fifty year old man from Duluth?

Dear Frank,

There’s this older guy I have the hots for and I just found out he has kids! I really like him and I get the impression he’s into me too, but I don’t know if I’m ready to get into a relationship with so much baggage. Cheryl What on earth would give you the impression he’s looking for a relationship? More than likely he’s just looking for a little adult conversation that doesn’t involve Dora and Blue’s Clues. That, and he’s probably anxious to get somebody younger than him naked for reasons other than wiping their butt. If all goes according to plan you’ll never be important enough to even meet his kids. FRANK THOUGHTS: Men with kids are the most efficient and dependable lovers They’ve had lots of practice sneaking in orgasms between Dora DVD’s.

shut up and drive Hey Frank,

So I just started dating this girl and I find out she’s really into Harry Potter. I mean REALLLLY into Harry Potter. Like she gets dressed up and goes to conventions and all that. Seems pretty silly and loserish to me. What do you think? James More silly and loserish than a bunch of people who would put cheese on their heads and cheer for a football team in subzero weather? At least this chick is into something unique. And have you ever seen a girl in a Slytherin costume? Accio boner! It’s like Catholic schoolgirls in green plaid! FRANK FACT: Even after seeing the movies, Frank still pronounces it “HER-mee-own”.

Hi-ya Frank,

So… I’m supposed to be going into my third year of pre-med and I’ve realized over this summer I really don’t want to do it anymore. Next semester starts in a month. How do I break this to my parents? Doug That’s a tough one. This particular bombshell is usually harder for parents to take than the “I like boys” bombshell. Like anything else though, the bandaid approach is probably best, hopefully before the tuition checks have been mailed. Be prepared for a fight and, depending on what you change your major to, a complete and utter revocation of all financial privileges. Are you SURE you don’t want to be a doctor?

Franco,

Hola Frank,

My girlfriend just told me she’s never seen The Godfather.” I’m a film major and that is just unacceptable. How can you live in this day and age and not have seen The Godfather? I keep trying to get her to watch it but she keeps putting me off. I honestly don’t know if I can be with a person like that. Miller

My girl and I have been exclusive for like three months, but she still won’t change her Facebook status to “in a relationship”. Am I being weird for getting annoyed about this? Tim

If I had a nickel for every time some wannabe artist let pretentiousness get in the way of seeing a girl naked. You’re well on your way to whiskey and Prozac without a film festival to show for it my friend. Oh and can I just break something down for you… The Godfather SUCKED! FRANK FACT: Frank has been banned from the entire state of New Jersey over that comment.

Weird? No. You sound exactly like every other possessive guy out there. Fact is, a lot of people aren’t into public displays of affection, and from what I understand, going “Facebook Official” is the online equivalent of mounting your girlfriend in front of her entire family. If you’re getting sex on a regular basis, that’s the only status worth worrying about. FRANK FACT: According to Frank’s Facebook, “it’s complicated” between him and the couch in our office.

Holy cow, Frank!

I just saw you for the first time since your accident and you’ve lost so much weight! What was your secret? Abigail Apparently you missed the memo about the reason behind that accident. Let’s just say when you’re on what I was on, losing weight is about the only positive side effect… though in retrospect I’m thinking bulimia would have been easier. FRANK THOUGHTS: A good ground rule in life is never stop doing a drug that makes you eat cookies in favor of one that makes you stop eating altogether.

Hey Frank,

Tell me the truth. Is it slutty if I have sex on the first date? Sally

NICE GUYS FINISH LAST!

By Jessica DiGiacinto

Friend Or Freak?

5 Reasons

Girls Keep Giving You

The Cold Shoulder

Since the beginning of time, a certain group of guys have been sitting in corners, pouting over the fact that they can’t seem to land a girl to save their lives. These select males consider themselves “nice guys” and are quite certain the reason they’re not getting laid is because chicks only dig a-holes. They moan louder than a porn star faking her orgasm about things like respecting our bodies and listening to our feelings. Yeah, yeah… that’s all good, but it won’t wet our whistle the same way Hard-To-Get Harry does by playing it cool. In all my years of swimming in the dating pool, I’ve come across my fair share of “nice guys.” Sure, these dudes are pleasant, but that’s not the reason some of them aren’t getting dates. The reason they’re not scoring big is because they’re nice and they’re weirder than Screech and Urkel combined. 30

Totally useless fact: Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.


NICE GUYS FINISH LAST!

Dell recommends Windows® 7.

Don’t leave it up to chance, fellas. Follow these five guidelines and determine for yourself if you are indeed a dweeb!

You Treat All The Female Avatars In Second Life Like Princesses

Look… lots of people enjoy role-playing games. Like millions of people. But if you’re some kind of lothario in the online world, you’re spending way too much time sitting in front of a computer screen. CGI girlfriends do not adequately substitute for real life flesh and fun. The cure for this is lap dances… simultaneously if possible.

You Suffer From A Bad Case Of The “Stares”

Smiling is okay. Smiling is great. Everyone likes a smile. Not everyone, though, likes uninterrupted eye contact for an entire organic chemistry lecture. I’m sure you’re just taken a hold by her angelic beauty and mean her no harm. The problem is, if a girl catches you staring at her, you’re no better than the creepy janitor who tries to clean the bathroom while she’s still in there. Periodic glances mean you’re interested. Constant glares, on the other hand, mean you’ve got duck tape and rope in your trunk.

What will you buy with your $200 Dell promo eGift card?* Student only offer: Want an Xbox® 360? Digital camera? Skull Candy headphones? When you spend $699 or more on select Dell PCs we'll send you a $200 Dell promo eGift card* to use towards whatever you want.

You Have A Bad Case Of The “Call ‘Ems”

So you’ve finally met a girl who seems to be more interested in you than just copying your notes for math. Hell, she even agreed to go out (in public!) with you on an official date. Things go well and the night comes to an end. As soon as you get home you make a mad dash for the phone. STOP! Calling us too soon is akin to doing something else too soon in the sack. I’ll let you figure that one out for yourselves…

You Are A Constant Victim Of Cheating

Telling girls about your previous run-ins with deceitful dames is practically giving us a cheat sheet to continue going behind your back with cooler dudes. We’re like wolves – we smell fear and insecurity from miles away. If you act weak, we’ll pounce on it like vultures… and not in that naked-in-bed, sexy kind of way that you’re daydreaming about right now.

You Do Anything A Girl Asks You To Do

This doesn’t mean you’re a gentleman… this means you have no spine and most likely no balls. Really, this is the male equivalent to female sluttiness. You wouldn’t chase after a girl you just saw walk out of the bathroom with three dudes, so what makes you think we’d pine for a guy who doles out his affection as often as a hospital dishes out free condoms? Totally useless fact: The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer.

HEADER THIS IS AN OBSCURE ARTICLE. YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER READ IT

How to Be a by Brian Hodges

Hipster You’re sick of being just another lemming in the pop culture crowd, doing as the teenyboppers do, believing as the useful idiots believe, and dressing like the Kardashian clones dress. When you’ve had it up to here with pedestrian “culture” there’s only one alternative; go counter-culture and become a hipster like the rest of us. That’s right, with the right look, the right attitude, and a heavy dose of intentional irony, you too can look like you fell off the L train on your way to Williamsburg. No idea what that means? You’re off to a bad start, bro.

THREADS All that garbage from Abercrombie & Third World Sweat Shop has got to go. Your wardrobe should set you apart as somebody who doesn’t give a crap about the current trends. Whether it’s that threadbare deep-V you dropped a hundred bucks on at the vintage clothing store, or those ironic suits and ties you stole from your grandfather’s attic that you wear every day, even to the beach or to breakfast on Saturdays. Women are encouraged to hem their granny’s old fashioned floral dresses so as to show off those unapologetically non-matching combat/go-go boots. When in doubt go brightly colored or all black. Those neutral blues and browns are for midtowners. And remember, unlike “mainstream culture” (a term you should bandy about the way others say “Nazi Germany”), “the tighter the better” isn’t a philosophy reserved only for women. 42

ACCESSORIES Anyone can walk into American Apparel and buy a pair of skinny jeans. Are you prepared to back that up with a two-dollar can of PBR, a cascade of below-the-sleeve tats, necklaces that look like they came out of a four-yearold’s dress-up trunk, and every single gadget ever blessed by Steve Jobs? This isn’t about looking cool. Okay it is a little, but it’s also about proving to the world that you, not the Mad Ave fat cats, are in control of your destiny. Or something. That’s why you opt for Elvis Costello glasses (which, for irony’s sake, may or may not contain lenses), a fixie bike over some bourgeois SUV, and a set of giant hi-def headphones over those crappy white ear buds. When the Top 40 crowd questions this latter item, your go-to response should always be, “If I listened to lame ass music I wouldn’t want to hear it either.” Which brings us to…

MEDIA Listen to only the most obscure garage rock, Euro punk or acid jazz that no one else has ever heard of. Under no circumstances are you to dance, woo-hoo, or so much as raise a fist to the sky. You dig this music, but it doesn’t mean you have to get excited about it. Have only the edgiest independent filmmakers and searingly vague documentaries in your DVD collection. And make certain the only television you watch involves British accents, copious drug use or frontal male nudity. Because clearly you’re far too disenchanted for right-of-left entertainment. When someone eventually stumbles across your secret stash of Kelly Clarkson mp3’s, tell them in your most imperturbable voice, “It’s called irony, hepcat.” PHILOSOPHY Let’s get one thing straight, friend. Hipsters may look and act like they don’t give a non-ironic crap, but they think way harder and way deeper than all you Hollywood lemmings combined. That’s why every idea, spoken or otherwise, that emanates from your person should be steeped in ideological obscurity and erudition (sigh, look it up) – whether it’s the books by Aristotle, Nietzsche and Machiavelli you read around campus, the quotes from Karl Marx, Howard Zinn and Christopher Hitchens you regurgitate during coffee house discussions, or even those perplexing bumper stickers on your MacBook that say Rational Miser, Absorb and Degrade, or Gentrification. Wait, you own a Dell? Dude, just get out of here before we all choke on the bread and circus they’ve been feeding you. Oh you don’t know what that means either? Pssh, why are we not surprised? COMMITMENT Cthulhu knows, it’s awfully trendy to make fun of hipsters these days. Just type the word into Google (what, you’re still using Yahoo?) and you’ll find any number of websites mocking hipster culture. Now take a closer look. Do you see any websites fighting back? Of course you don’t. Hipsters don’t need to tell people they’re awesome. They just live the life, man. If you’re even calling yourself a hipster, you most likely aren’t one. So play it cool and stay groovy. Posers need not apply… even if that’s how most of us started in hipster culture to begin with. Have we mentioned the whole irony thing?

Totally useless fact: The largest city in the United States with a one-syllable name is Flint, Michigan.

CONGRATULATIONS I

n recognition of your outstanding ability to lie completely still on an unsteady surface. After years of early mornings and late nights of training, you have accomplished a feat equivalent to that of a nocturnal rodent. And, now that you’ve accomplished such illustrious goals, you have taken it upon yourself to share it with the world on YouTube so they may see you in all of your splendor and brilliance. Because who wants to see an animal play dead when they can see a marginally intelligent human do the same, thus regressing evolution and society, and returning us to our more primitive, apparently desirable state.

If four out of five people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean that one enjoys it? There was a student who was desirous of taking admission for a study course. He was smart enough to get through the written test, a GD and was to appear for the personal interview. Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright since he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy. “Tell me your choice;” he said to the boy, “What’s your choice: I shall either ask you 10 easy questions or ONE that’s real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind.” The boy thought for a while and said, “My choice is ONE real difficult question.” “Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!” said the man on the opposite side. “Tell me: What comes first, Day or Night?” The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said: “It’s the DAY, sir.” “How?” the interviewer was smiling (“At last, I got you!” he said to himself.) “Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!”

Three convicts escape from jail and are being chased by police. They turn onto a dark alley and spot a bunch of potato sacks. Each of the three hides in one. A policeman quickly comes through the scene and hears a rustling from the potato sacks. He goes over to them and kicks the first potato sack. “Meow!” says the convict. And the policeman goes to the next muttering, “Stupid cats.” He kicks the second potato sack and the second convict says, “Woof!” “Stupid dogs!” says the policeman while moving on to the next potato sack. The policeman kicks it, nothing, so he kicks it again and the last convict says, “Potato potato!”

Totally useless fact: The word ‘pixel’ is a contraction of either ‘picture cell’ or ‘picture element’.

“Me and my guy friend, who is more like a brother, were at my condo pre-gaming with friends before going out to celebrate his 21st. Just as we started to walk up the stairs, I realized that I accidentally left my dirty thongs everywhere and told him not to head upstairs. Sure enough though, he raced up the steps, and in my attempt to beat him up there, I tripped on the top step and rolled all the way down! As soon as I opened my eyes, I saw a look of shock on his face as I realized that my shirt was up around my neck and that my see-through bra was showing for everyone to see. It sucked, but it sure as hell made for a great first gift.” Sara, 22

“One night I started having a “dance off” with this guy at a club. Well, I got pretty into it and did one of my signature moves where I bend down, stick out my ass and come up really slow. However, over the loud music and people cheering, I heard a “RIIIIIPP,” and I reached back only to feel my bare butt. My jeans had completely ripped down the crack! I grabbed my friend and walked all the way home with my bare ass hanging out. Needless to say, I’ve been the butt of all my friends’ jokes since then.” Rachel, 18 52

“I was running ***** late for class one day and started jogging towards my dorm room from the communal showers. WINNER All of the sudden, I slipped and fell in the hall, dropping my shower caddy and towel! I laid there in naked shock for a second thinking that no one saw, but as I sat up, I realized the creepy, male janitor was standing right over me. He laughed and mocked me, saying, “Jeez, I didn’t even mop the floors yet!” I always wear my robe to the showers now and look both ways for the janitor before leaving my room.” Ashley, 19

Déjà vu screw

Rating: ***

“I was out one weekend (drinking my weight in liquor) so, of course, I started tossing pick-up lines to every girl in sight. As I slurred some sweet talk to my next victim, I slowly got the feeling that I knew this girl from something else. Ignoring my better, soberer instincts, I tried my luck and asked, “Do you have a little Eric in ya? Would you like to?” Before I got that last word out, I got a slap across the face that made the entire bar gasp. It turns out it was my exgirlfriend’s 16-year-old little sister who was in town visiting. From now on, I keep a check on my sketchiness in public.” Eric, 21

HERE COMES THE BRIDE (AND ALL HER HOT FRIENDS)!

Your Summer is upon us, which means wedding season isn’t far behind. Your single friends are dropping like flies, so you’ll probably be attending three or four of these merry nuptials by the time September rolls around. Sure weddings are annoying and sappy and you have to wear a tie in ninety-degree heat, but take a lesson from Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn – weddings are primo places to hook up. You just have to understand the people you’ll encounter and know how to approach them. by Brian Hodges

Wedding

HERE COMES THE BRIDE (AND ALL HER HOT FRIENDS)!

field guide to hookups

The Trying-not-to-be-Jaded DJ Who He Is: He was going to be the next big thing on the New York City club scene. Instead, he somehow got stuck behind a microphone encouraging little old ladies to do the Chicken Dance. What He’s Wearing: Black slacks and vest with a sombrero and inflatable green guitar.

How to Hit That: Honey, the only reason this guy got into DJ’ing in the first place was for the chicks. If you’re young, relatively hot and request something other than “Play That Funky Music White Boy”, you’re in.

The Fraternity Brother with the Inside Joke Who He Is: He pledged Mu Alpha Nu with the groom. The toast is hilarious for him and his fellow pledge mates, but completely meaningless to anyone who wasn’t present on, “The night the red shark descended on Balla Balla kidney stone.” (HA HA HA HA!!!)

The Swing Dancing Couple Who They Are: It’s still 1943 for these two (or 1998). They took classes and practiced for untold hours all for the moment when the DJ would play “Jump Jive and Wail.” They execute lollies, throwouts and triple steps so effortlessly that others can’t help but watch. Of course, they’re so focused on dancing flawlessly that they don’t actually enjoy themselves. They almost never smile.

What He’s Wearing: A typically sharp black tuxedo, though he’s carrying a giant stuffed Snoopy doll with an eye-patch and t-shirt bearing the fraternity’s letters.

What They’re Wearing: A zoot suit and flapper dress, complete with black and white spats and open-toed dancing shoes, respectively.

How to Hit That: Dirty dance with the Snoopy, and ask him to fill you in on the meaning behind his “ExLax Playdoh” story.

How to Hit That: Don’t try. Unless you can Lindy Hop better than their partner, they won’t even notice you.

Totally useless fact: The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

The Recently Divorced Alcoholic Aunt Who She Is: She may be slightly depressed about her husband running off with his twenty-year-old secretary, but still, she raises multiple Cosmopolitans in celebration of the mini-fortune she’s about to inherit. What She’s Wearing: A form-fitting black or red dress that is entirely inappropriate for a wedding since people are staring at her more than the bride. How to Hit That: She’s out to prove that she can bed a young stud too, so sit at the bar, and win her over with your combination of maturity and boyishness. Match her Martini for Martini then encourage her to sing the Oh Oh Oh’s with you during “Sweet Caroline.” The Slightly Less Attractive Maid of Honor Who she is: The bride’s younger sister or childhood friend. Her lifelong feelings of physical inferiority are doubled today as she stands next to the perfect little bride, in her perfect little gown, with her perfect little man as she holds her perfect little flowers. What She’s Wearing: A horrendous pastel dress with poofy shoulders. How to Hit That: She really is trying to be happy for her friend, so help her along by taking advantage of the open bar. After toasting the newlyweds over many shots of tequila, drag her to the dance floor during “Endless Love.” If you can get past all the crying, she’s yours. campus talk

FUGGHEDABOUTIT!

the Mafia By Kevin Yeoman

CT Goes

Inside

Joseph D. Pistone (a.k.a. Donnie Brasco) says mob life is packed – like a pair of concrete shoes at the bottom of a river – with “boredom, loneliness and the constant danger of death.” Sounds like Mr. Pistone viewed his “family” time in the same regard as a freshman majoring in pre-med. Like the “big-boned” girl at the bar, the Mafia holds a certain allure that you don’t want to admit is there but can’t help being attracted to. That is the appeal of hanging with maligned misanthropes who have the rare ability to turn tracksuits into three-piece suits. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it would take to get “made,” read on and see for yourself if you have what it takes.

The Boss

(a.k.a. The Don or The Godfather) The Consigliere The Underboss

Survival Skills

The Caporegime (a.k.a. Capo or Captain) The Soldier

Know Your

Role Where do I fit in, you ask? Well, like most things in life, crap roles downhill. Unless you’re the son of the Don, you can park your keister at the bottom of that hill until your number is called, soldier. 66

You must exemplify three key elements in order to succeed in the Mafia: commitment, legitimacy and communication skills.

Commitment is what you bolted from the moment your girlfriend texted you that she was “late.” Now, you’re going to have to work on that one. However, your innate ability to flee from responsibility, change your name and forgo all other people in your life could come in handy the moment you’re suspected of knocking over three banks and a jewelry store. Legitimacy is what you present while you hide your incriminating reality. Read and learn…

Presentation: a studious, attentive and respectful student with dreams of one day raising a family. Reality: a lazy borderline alcoholic with dreams of stardom stemming from a brief stint as a stagehand in a high school presentation of “Pippin.” See? You’re practically a master at crafting a legitimate illusion of your perfectly illegitimate life! Communication skills are paramount to becoming a successful Mafioso. Being able to talk – with your fists – is one of the most effective methods at your disposal. Another useful tip is to instill a sense of fear in your subordinates. A blown-up car or broken leg is sure to have your “business associates” agreeing to your terms before you even lay them on the table.

Totally useless fact: Did you know you share your birthday with at least 9 million other people in the world.


FUGGHEDABOUTIT!

Say My Name, Bitch! Developing your reputation is a must. Since this line of business is all about clout, it’s imperative to have a memorable name that can make you both popular and notorious… kind of like Dick Butkus. Or not. “Lucky” Luciano, Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, John Gotti: “The Dapper Don” or “The Teflon Don.” Ronnie “Balloon Head” DeAngelis. Okay, you’ll probably want to avoid names that insinuate your head is a thin layer of rubber and contains nothing more than air, but you get the idea. Take a negative and turn it into a positive. Don’t know who your dad is? Hey, it’s Johnny “The Bastard” Wilson! Get around a lot? Guys, meet Vinnie “The Clap” Matolla. Packin’ on a few extra pounds? “Big” is out these days and “Tiny” is overused. Go with Mickey “The Whale” Siegel. And that, my “friend,” is how to start your life as a Mafioso. Zip up that tracksuit, don your pinky ring, and you’ll be in “La Cosa Nostra” in no time. Or at the bottom of a river.

A Made Man Getting made is like having the hottest girl alive take you home from the bar only to find out that you’re instantaneously stuck with her for the rest of your life. It seems great at first until you find out she snores, listens to Barbara Streisand on full blast, has a homeless brother and (gasp) doesn’t eat meat.

YOU LIVE, YOU LEARN!

Sad

Truths By Brian Hodges

…that you don’t want to learn the hard way

Sad Truth 1: Nude beaches are not as sexy as you’d think. I don’t understand the inverse logic behind it, but in places where nudity is the norm, it’s almost always the least attractive people who have the most self-confidence and the healthiest body images. Nude beaches sound great (and full of sexy potential) in theory, but in reality, 95 percent of the people there have the kinds of bodies that you wouldn’t want to see naked under “normal” circumstances – never mind when there’s sand, sweat and sun block gummed between their fat rolls. So before you take a trip out to that nude resort, remove your clothes, and stand in front of a full-length mirror. Horrifying, right? Now, realize that you will probably be the most attractive person on that beach. Enough said! 68

july 2012

Sad Truth 2: Those chiseled Greek Gods and Goddesses on TV did not get those bodies by using the workout machines and diet pills they’re advertising. The only way to achieve a six-pack stomach is through sit-ups and crunches. The only way to lose weight is to cut calories and start exercising. Bottom line? Six minutes a day on a contraption that collapses to the size of a shoebox and makes for a great dust collector under your bed ain’t gonna cut it. Forget all of those miracle-promising commercials for “Herbal Idiotfedrin,” or whatever the hell those morons are sellin’ on TV. Don’t shell out three easy payments for an Ab-Swindler 3000. Save your money for a membership to a real gym… or some candy.

Sad Truth 3: Hot women do not hitchhike. I know this is how many of Cinemax’s flicks begin, but take a good, long look at that navel-baring vixen on the side of the road. Somebody that attractive has plenty of friends. She doesn’t need to rely on you and your Geo Metro to give her a ride. She is not going to strip off her clothes as soon as she slides in. She is not going to give you her body as a thank you for bringing her to the next town. In fact, she is probably a he who is going to rob you!

Totally useless fact: The average person spends about two years on the phone in a lifetime.


you live, you learn!

Somebody (far wiser than myself) once said, “If you’re young and not an idealist, you have no heart. If you’re old and not a realist, you have no brain.” Idealism is good, especially during the college years, and I certainly don’t want to be the one to squash it. But I also feel that it’s my duty to break the realism of some sad, unfortunate truths. I do this not to be like that older brother who ruins the magic of Santa Claus for his younger siblings.

It’s just that nothing kills idealism faster than learning something unfortunate through a firsthand experience, like discovering the truth about Santa by walking in on your mom giving the jolly, old elf a happy ending in front of the Christmas tree. So to save you that type of heartache, I reveal these five sad truths, which nobody should have to learn about the hard way!

Sad Truth 5: Sexually speaking, your parents have done stuff way hotter, way kinkier and way weirder than anything you’ve ever contemplated.

Sad Truth 4: Your family dog is not frolicking on some farm in upstate New York. The truth is that your parents couldn’t actually afford the doggie farm, so they sent old Sparky to a doggie gym where he spends his days running on a treadmill, producing renewable energy for a chemical plant in Newark, New Jersey. Whenever he slows down, they inject him with PCP and the hormones of a Tasmanian devil. If you hurry, you can still save him… or not.

Depending on the generation they came from, they grew up anywhere from the late ‘60s to the early ‘80s, when illicit drugs were the standard of the day (and I’m talking about stuff way better than the cheap pot you can get from your roommate’s brother). When you’re on the kind of substances they were on, the word “inhibition” becomes as meaningless as that degree in “Event Planning” that you’re pursuing. Now I know this sounds like a cruel one for me to be bringing up; after all, who needs those kinds of images in their heads? I only tell you this so that you don’t go poking through their drawers, looking for drug money and end up stumbling across a stack of Polaroids from their former exploits. If that doesn’t kill idealism, nothing will.

Totally useless fact: The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley’s gum.

I am truly sorry to have to break all of these sad, unfortunate truths to you; but, believe me, you will be much better off in the long run. This is by no means an exhaustive list; it’s just merely a practical one that, in addition to preserving your optimism, will also help you save money… so that you can go hire a shrink! campus talk

One of the big GPS companies was developing a new feature for their mapping products. They hoped to be able to allow men to replace the standard voices that give you directions with the voice of their own wife or girlfriend. They felt it would be comforting to hear a familiar voice while navigating new or different roads. Like all new features, they hit some trouble spots. No matter how hard they worked, they were unable to get it to say things like, “Turn right in 1/2 mile.”

Did you hear about the man who recently awoke from a 30-year coma and the first thing he asked for was a cup of coffee. “Just a little cup,” he asked. “A lot of caffeine tends to keep me awake.”

Instead, the voice would only say things like, “Why don’t you stop and ask somebody,” and, “Why didn’t you turn back there? You should’ve turned back there!”

A rich man booked a journey in a helicopter and was boasting to all of his friends that he was traveling in a chopper. Suddenly, the pilot started to laugh out loud.

Hotdog

Eating Contest Where Legends are Born

Perhaps one of the most famous contests of its kind, the Coney Island hot dog eating competition is put on every year by Nathan’s Hot Dogs. The past four years the title has been taken home by a modern day patriot who answers to the name, Joey Chestnut. Last year Joey was a happy recipient of the Mustard Belt after consuming 54 hotdogs and buns in just 10 minutes. The 2010 contest was said to be a runaway win for Chestnut due to Japan’s own Takeru Kobayashi not competing because of a contract dispute with Major League Eating. I was just as perplexed when I found out Major League Eating was an actual entity who dealt with contracts as well. Don’t let the the red tape that comes with being an international eating “athlete” get your hopes down however. You too can make your country proud in such a way that is only possible through shoveling unnecessary amounts of calories into your mouth. All it takes is a little practice and an appetite.

In case you slept through elementary school in its entirety and aren’t aware of what the Fourth of July represents, it honors our independence as a country and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. In addition to celebrating freedom and the unalienable rights of men, the Fourth of July is the one day out of the year when un-athletic people can pretend they compete in a sport by joining in the tradition of the annual hot dog eating contest. Joey Chestnut is said to have prepared for some eating challenges by stretching his stomach by drinking milk and guzzling gallons of water in under one minute. So if you are not lactose intolerant, and are capable of practically water boarding yourself, all in the name of competition, you may be receiving your own contract from the MLE in the near future. The stomach is only half the battle however. To allow those hotdogs to even get that far, one must have jaws of steel to chew those random meat scraps down. Competitive eaters are known to increase the strength of their jaw by constantly chewing gum. So if you’re not afraid of a few cavities for the sake of a world title, you may have what it takes to stick it out in the harsh world that is competitive eating.

Totally useless fact: The house fly hums in the middle octave key of F.

It is important to know, however, that to actually make it in the competitive eating world takes a huge commitment. Competitive eaters must eat every single day in order to stay in competitive shape. Some eaters have even been known to eat up to three meals a day! There have been plenty of average Joes who thought they had what it took to be a competitive eater, only to find out that eating was not for them. If you think you have what it takes and you aren’t good at any other sport anyways, competitive eating may be your ticket to fame. Who knows, maybe one Fourth of July you could be the one holding the Mustard Belt over your head in victory. campus talk

Benefits of Living Off

Campus In all of my six years in college (be nice, I am working on my third degree) I have never lived in a dorm. I never saw the appeal of living in the dorms. I just saw them as small, generally smelly spaces that hundreds of people have slept in prior to me arriving. So I always chose to live off-campus.

Sure there were some drawbacks including parking passes and paying rent, but there were also a lot of perks. I have my own space, my own room, and my own bathroom. I had a roommate in my first apartment, but at least I got to choose who they were. I believe that the biggest perk of living off-campus was that it taught me how to be responsible. I had to work to pay my rent and bills, so I quickly learned how to multi-task. This also taught me about the art of money management and budgeting. Trust me, living in Florida and having your electric shut off in the middle of summer will really teach you to pay your bills on time! Here are some of the reasons why I think it is better to live off-campus while in college: campus talk

If you have odd living tendencies (like needing to mop your floors three times a day) then you are free to do it without judgment in your own space. You get your own kitchen and bathroom.

It teaches you economic responsibility. You are in charge of paying rent, bills and all the other expenses.

You are in charge of every aspect of your living situation. If you want to leave dishes in the sink and come home drunk at 3am you can.

Totally useless fact: Starfish don’t have brains.


THE ROOF IS ON FIRE! Launching for its second year, Tina created the camp as an outlet for teenagers to go and learn about music and spinning, socialize with peers, play sports and take part in fun outdoor activities. Committed to making a difference in young people’s lives and sharing with them the art of music, Tina also offers a scholarship program for kids in need, making the camp universally accessible. CT managed to catch up with Tina for a quick chat regarding Camp Spin Off, her influences, inspirations and experiences coming up through the DJ scene. Seattle is famous for its musical influence and culture, did growing up there inspire you to become a musician, and if so, how?

I was always going to live shows during the rock, grunge and ska days in Seattle. I loved crowd surfing over mosh pits and all of that! During the mid 90’s I became involved in the rave scene and started becoming exposed to different DJs. Was being a DJ always the dream or did you start with something else musically?

I played the violin for eight years and then in college it ultimately came down to choosing the violin or turntables, simply because there is only enough time and dedication in the day to put towards one. It didn’t take too much time to decide when I mentally compared a future being in symphonies and musicals versus nightclubs and parties. What made you want to become a DJ?

The first time I touched a turntable, I had so much fun that I never stopped. There are certain things in life that grab your attention and never let go. I simply love the art of mixing, scratching and creating music. Was it tough starting out? Did you run into any prejudices or sexism from clubs?

I ran into a lot of sexism and discouraging comments, but I never let any of it affect me. I had a strong crew of supportive DJs that I practiced with in Seattle. They believed in me and always treated me as an equal. The more people tell me I cant do something, it just feeds the fire inside me to prove them wrong. What hip hop influences did you have growing up?

Some DJs include: The invisible Scratch Pickelz, Mix Master Mike, The Executioners, DJ Craze, Q Bert, The Beat Junkies. The biggest hip hop influence I had growing up in Seattle was not specifically from any one artist or group, it was from the events and hip hop community that was always thriving. Being at DJ battles with B Boy contests, MC battles and graffiti exhibits always kept me involved and excited about what I was doing. What’s your favorite venue to play?

I love being international. Outside on the

beach in Mexico at Club Med or for the SIMA Surf Summit are some of the best memories of my DJ career. I also love the energy during spring break at Louies Backyard in South Padre Island, TX. What inspired you to create Camp Spin-Off?

I went to all types of summer camps growing up and had the best experiences that will stay with me forever. I want to be a part of keeping summer camp alive and tweeking it a bit to fit kids with a specific interest in learning how to DJ. Overall, I wanted to do something fun that brought everyone in the DJ community together. What kind of activities does the camp provide?

The camp has a Zip Line, skate park, basketball court, volleyball, hiking, climbing wall and field games. We also have pool parties with featured guest DJs and campfires with s’mores. There will be a video DJ set at night under the stars with Screen Werks this year and I’m really looking forward to that! What kind of lessons do they teach?

We have various DJ classes on turntables and vinyl, digital software, beat making, remixing programs and more. There is also a music business class and guest speakers each day who share stories and do Q&A with the kids. I noticed in the promo video for the camp that there were kids from all over the world, how far does the camp reach? What countries do you tend to get a lot of the kids from?

The camp does reach international markets. Last year we had a camper from Barcelona, this year we have one coming from Denmark! Kids travel from all over the country: New York, Chicago, Iowa and more. I would say most of the kids are from the west coast: Vegas and California. Are there any programs after the camp that the kids can attend to further what they learn?

Most of them keep in touch on Facebook and ask questions or update everyone on gigs they are doing at school or with friends. Some kids also do continued learning at The Scratch DJ Academy in LA, which also teaches its curriculum at camp.

the relationship between the campers and the guest DJs/Counselors seems like a really close one, do you stay in contact with any of the campers after the week is over?

Yes, I keep in touch with some of them and their parents on twitter, Facebook, email or in person when I am in their city. I try to stay involved with The Boys & Girls Club in Las Vegas as much as possible. When I was DJing in Iowa City, one of the campers came to the all-ages event I was doing and that was a lot of fun. Do the kids get any time in an actual studio? Do they work with other DJs/producers?

At camp, they have a beat making class that is set up like a studio and their teacher, DJ Serafin, is a great producer. They all participate as a group in creating original tracks and remixes. Towards the end of the week, each group shoots music videos to the songs they created and we show them all on the last night. Do they learn anything on the engineering side, or is it strictly recording?

They learn how to compose a beat and structure it musically. There is some engineering for levels and they also record themselves singing, beat boxing or rapping over the track. With the influence of DJs like Skrillex receiving such international attention, has dubstep become discussed/taught more in the sessions?

YES! The kids love dubstep more than any other genre so far. Most of the remixes they make are dubstep and its definitely something we get used to hearing them talk about all week. Some of the guest DJs will talk about their like or dislike of dubstep with the kids and also about where it originated from, etc. What music styles are covered/ discussed in the camp?

We don’t focus on any one style or genre of music. The basics of beat counting, notes and music structure applies to all styles. We encourage any type of music they want to DJ with and show them how to do it.

A stranger was seated next to Little Johnny on the plane when the stranger turned to Little Johnny and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.” Little Johnny, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, and said to the stranger, “What would you like to discuss?” “Oh, I don’t know,” said the stranger. “How about nuclear power?” “OK,” said Little Johnny. “That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass. The same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?” “Jeez,” said the stranger. “I have no idea.” “Well, then,” said Little Johnny, “How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don’t know sh**?”

One evening, he got down to the ferry and found there was a wait for the next boat, so John decided to stop at a nearby tavern. Before long he wasn’t feeling any pain. When he got back to the ferry, the boat was just eight feet from the dock. Smith, afraid of missing this one and being late for dinner, took a running leap and landed right on the deck of the boat. “How did you like that jump, buddy?” said a proud John to a deck hand. “It was great,” said the sailor. “But why didn’t you wait?

scopes ARIES (21 Marâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 Apr) There will be a dark and mysterious stranger following you. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll imagine itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a secret admirer but a quick look at your accounts has us leaning towards a debt collector with a bat. Pay your bills, moron. TAURUS (21 Aprâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;21 May) For an unknown reason, a truly lovely person will be genuinely attracted to you. They are so nice even us cynical old stars canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of something mean to say. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to. Chances are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stuff it up before we write again. GEMINI (22 Mayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;22 Jun) There is a good chance that you will be offered a job this month. Sadly you are truly allergic to anything resembling hard work and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a shivering, rash-covered mess until someone turns on Dr. Phil and puts you back in your sweatpants. CANCER(23 Junâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 Jul) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find yet another cause to campaign for this month. Last month it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Save the Brazilian (Rainforest)â&#x20AC;? for the bevy of beautiful angry Latina women. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll troll the sign boards but find nothing better than â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plump and Proud Librarians.â&#x20AC;? LEO (24 Julâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 Aug) There is a vague chance that you will die this month. Try to avoid anything that could potentially cause your death. Cars, bars, alcohol, unclean women and fatty foods are all on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? list, which will reduce you to lying in bed until the risk passes. VIRGO (24 Augâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 Sep) Your parents are trying to send you a messageâ&#x20AC;Ś of sorts. The fact that they have closed your credit card, moved without a forwarding address and sent your belongings to you in a box addressed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the occupantâ&#x20AC;? should be a clue. Orphan. LIBRA (24 Sepâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 Oct) Thanks for your ongoing belief in astrological intervention. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear you begging the stars to make her come back to you. We did. But the sight of you singing an Adam Lambert song in your socks and jocks made us wet our supernatural pants. SCORPIO (24 Octâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;22 Nov) You are an idiot. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay. Lots of idiots have gone on to achieve amazing things. If you can abuse drugs and confuse your American geography then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still on track for a successful career in politics. SAGITTARIUS (23 Novâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;22 Dec) Less is more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most of the time. Adopting this philosophy has slimmed down your beer gut but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cutting back on clothing and deodorant that is causing the issue. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be pretty damn hot before you can rock the â&#x20AC;&#x153;stinky man in a loin clothâ&#x20AC;? look without someone calling security. CAPRICORN (23 Decâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;19 Jan) Yellow is the color of the month. Yellow underpants, hell â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yellow over-pants! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why but the amount of yellow you wear will directly correlate with two things: random bee stings and the love of the ladies. Go forth and shine. AQUARIUS (20 Janâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;19 Feb) You are moving toward being an adult. One day soon you might be able to say the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bumâ&#x20AC;? without giggling. You are paying bills, going on dates with girls you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay for and watching French films. Okay, that last one is just for the boobs. PISCES (20 Febâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 Mar) We were going to congratulate you on your successful migration to being a man-lady but it appears you have just been tricked into carrying a man-bag. While we wholeheartedly support our transgender buddies, a straight man with a handbag is just confusing.

Q: How are your services better quality then other moving companies?

A: Our services are the best because we care about our customers and their belongings. We are seasoned moving professionals who use industry leading techniques and equipment.

Q: Why is your service unique?

A: The main difference between us and other companies is the way we protect our customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; belongings. We completely encase each piece in moving pads then wrap it in stretch wrap. This ensures that everything stays covered with the best protection possible.

Q: How about student discounts?

A: We offer three types of group discounts. One is for students, one is for senior citizens, and one is for military â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m partial to because I was in the Navy. As long as you fit within one of those classifications, you get a 10% discount off the price we agreed upon.

Q: Do you charge any extra fees?

A: We charge absolutely no extra fees. We have a per-job pricing structure. The client gives me an inventory list and I give them a set price for the job.

Q: Are there any other specifics youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to tell us about the company?

A: We want to be known for going above and beyond for our customers. One goal we really strive for is being personable with all of our clients, because when we get feedback from the clients saying that we were the best moving experience theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had, we know all the hard work was worth it! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way we intend to keep it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; setting the bar high!
