Weekend Update: Friday

MCAB Free Friday Film: Knocked Up
7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. in Dana Auditorium


This movie is pure genius. That's really all you need to know. Oh, and that when I went to the theater in Middlebury this summer to see the film, a rather, how you say, prominent Middlebury Staff member was sitting behind me. I was thinking, "You're not allowed to think that's funny. You're not supposed to know that word." I later found out that he had invited two professors to join him-- two professors that you would never in 3 million years expect to see something like Knocked Up. I really dodged a bullet there. The end.

Brainerd Hosts: The Great Gatsby Party
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. in Proctor Vicinity

Party like it's 1925. Break out the fishnets, the red lipstick, and the fedoras 'cause 20s dress is highly encouraged. There will be lots of entertainment, food, and dancing.

Party like it's 1925? Let's go to the source.

"There was dancing now on the canvas in the garden; old men pushing young girls backward in eternal graceless circles, superior couples holding each other tortuously, and keeping in the corners--and a great number of single girls dancing individualistically or relieving the orchestra for a moment of the burden of the banjo or the traps. By midnight the hilarity had increased. A celebrated tenor had sung in Italian, and a notorious contralto had sung in jazz, and between the numbers people were doing 'stunts' all over the garden, while happy, vacuous bursts of laughter rose toward the summer sky. A pair of stage twins, who turned out to be the girls in yellow, did a baby act in costume, and champagne was served in glasses bigger than finger-bowls. The moon had risen higher, and floating in the Sound was a triangle of silver scales, trembling a little to the stiff, tinny drip of the banjoes on the lawn"

--from F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Great Gatsby"
