This cool music video was filmed in 'The Stacks' in the Memorial Library at UW-Madison. The tiny cages you see are where students lock themselves in to study (so if they fall asleep nobody can steal their stuff). This artist isn't bad. The next Eminem?
Added:His album 'Monster' is actually really really good. Free download at his website.
Anyone from Madison who understands the Coastie/Sconnie divide will find this song hilarious. (thx Luke!)
"Always walkin Langdon with a strut lookin haawwt
Talkin on her celly like, "girl ohh gawwwd!"
Coach bag, Gucci shades that they daddy bought
Muggin' wearin v-neck tees with they iPaawwd
Always up in Van Vleck, "I have a question"
Baby sit back, let me explain this lesson"
"That's why the pointy-headed intellectuals who boast or value ideologically perfect voting records are so dangerous. They have stopped thinking ... They are wrecking the country, and they are wrecking Wisconsin."
"A simple and easy reduction of many alcohol related problems could be realized by eliminating the ridiculous and entirely arbitrary bar time."
"While drinkers are out getting into bar fights ... the pot smoker is at home in their living room looking for their other shoe. Policy implications?"
"For students, there is almost nothing to do downtown that does not involve drinking ... UW square (with movie theaters) closed ... Union South will close soon with the bowling alley ... music venues are not cheap and so it's drink, drink, drink"
"I own many student rental houses- they are basically underground bars without any regulation. The less liquor lic. you give out, the more underground bars you will have."
"The University of Wisconsin CS Dept. used cheeses. Never seemed to have a problem with running out, although they named two machines kraft-slices and velveeta, and the lawyers moved in and made them change."
I had the unique opportunity to go up into the Carillon Bell Tower at UW-Madison today-- and guess what-- there is actually a man up there playing the bells. Yeah, I have always been told that there was a man up there, but for some reason thought it was a myth and the bells were actually computerized.
His name is Lyle Anderson, and if you catch him on the right day at the right time, he'll let you come up and watch him play. I wish I would have taken a video so you could see how fast he works the foot pedals and levers.I posted a video of him playing the bells on YouTube. You can even allegedly hand him any sheet music written for piano, and if you're nice enough, he'll play it for you. Additionally, there are stairs that go up to the top where the bells are-- but I may now be partially deaf from that experience.
"Hint hint ASM, why don't you make this more visible, as opposed to taking ten minutes of searching through UW websites? ... You don't need to pass a non-binding resolution in support of this. You don't need to botch an election."
A Promise Not Forgotten - A beautifully-made student documentary about the Abe Lincoln statue on Bascom Hill that I saw at the Spring 2007 IFVC Show. Answering the simple question, "What is he doing here?" It's really good, and you should watch it. [Part 2]
UW-Madison stands up to RIAA - "These settlement letters are an attempt to short circuit the legal process to rely on universities to be their legal agent... we are not the legal agent for the recording agency, nor do we aspire to (be)."
Badger Herald: In Gmail we Trust - Why should WiscMail switch to Google? "We're fairly certain DoIT could use some extra time to fix the Associated Students of Madison's online voting system or improve usability of the enrollment monstrosity."
Schedulizer - Website for select universities to help you pick your schedule. Pick what classes you want, specify when you don't want class, and *click*... possible class schedules. Still took me an hour to make a schedule though...
