WANTED: TWO PERFECT PEOPLE [25 Feb 2007|01:48pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hey kids,

As you know, housing season is coming up soon...

I will be a Barnard RA in 616 w. 116th street next year.

Our suite has 4 single rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, and HUGE double. (I think it's like 16 x 12)

We're looking for TWO WONDERFUL PEOPLE to live in our suite's double next year (sorry guys, we'd rather pull in girls: barnard, seas or cc).


the four of us are very good friends and we're very
passive, positive people...

we're being really picky about who we pull in because our mix of personalities is already a great
combination and we want to keep that nice, stress-free atmosphere.

The seniors living in the singles are:
me (Daniela Arreola)
Dana Everitt
Remi Coker and
Avital Rabinowitz

we don't smoke... we don't party often... we're very clean (your double can be a war
zone as long as you keep the bathroom and kitchen spotless).... and we're extremely social... we're all heads of organizations around campus.

honestly, we're kind of awesome...

we do a lot of cooking and we go to the theatre at least twice a month (mostly because some of us get about a billion free tickets a year). We're theatre/music/theatre-polisci/psych majors, so we're very creative and we plan on turning the apartment into a home.

We're very different individuals with very diverse interests... we don't plan on spending all our time glued together, but we do want to be friendly and maybe cook dinner together once a month or so.

If you can think of any two people who would be interested in
our double, please let me know ASAP. I need to turn in the pull-in
form by this tuesday. (sorry it's late notice...) The great thing
about this is that you wouldn't have to go through the hassle of
housing: you just sign a piece of paper and you have a home
next year!

G'luck with housing!

BURNING ANNIE hits theaters in NYC! [25 Jan 2007|08:39pm]
* Burning Annie hits theaters!
 NYC engagement begins Feb 7 at the Pioneer  *  Hello fans and supporters! After years and years of work, 18 film festival appearances, and six awards, I am psyched to announce Burning Annie will be playing at the Pioneer Theater in New York City starting on February 7...!
  • The Pioneer Theater
  • opens February 7, 2007
  • 155 East 3rd Street
  • (between Avenues A and B)
  • New York City
  • Showtimes (212) 591-0434
  • Advanced tickets: (800) 595-4849
  Please tell your friends in NYC! Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the writer, co-director, and/or producer(s) and maybe even some cast. After-party to follow opening night and weekend shows. Group discounts available.   We couldn't have done it without all your help!!!
  • Burning Annie
  • Directed by Van Flesher
  • Written by Zack Ordynans
  • Produced by Randy Mack
  • College student Max (Gary Lundy of Donnie Darko) lives and breathes Woody Allen's seminal film, Annie Hall. In fact, Max believes the movie's message underscores the ultimate futility of romance. But just when Max begins to suspect that the movie is ruining his love life, a girl (Sara Downing of TV's "Roswell") who seems to be the modern incarnation of Annie Hall herself turns his world topsy-turvy. Meanwhile Max's friends—including Kim Murphy ("24"), Brian Klugman (Can't Hardly Wait), Jay Paulson (Go), Todd Duffey (Office Space), and Rini Bell (Jarhead, Ghost World)—must confront their own difficulties with the opposite sex.
  • This dark romantic comedy transcends homage as an original, unflinching, scathingly funny, bittersweet satire of modern love in the media age.
See ya at the theater! _Randy (Mack) co-writer/co-director/producer Armak Productions

Hazing [02 Apr 2006|01:17am]
Hello, we are two students at Rochester Institute of Technology currently engaged in an independent study project addressing the issue of hazing in New York. The goal of this project is two-pronged - we wish to discover the prevalence of hazing in the state as well as get your opinion on what should be done about it, if anything.

Under the lj-cut is our survey, which asks a variety of questions about your personal experiences with hazing, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could take a minute or two from your time to fill it out really quickly. We even have questions at the beginning for those who have never experienced hazing but wish to share their opinion on the subject. Additionally, each question gives you the option to answer in more detail beyond the choices we have already provided. We encourage you to take advantage of this if you have more include in your answer.

Your responses to this survey are anonymous, so please do not put your name (or any information that would identify you) anywhere on this survey. You may quit the survey at any time and for any reason, or you may decline to answer any of the questions, but your responses to every question are important and we ask that you answer as many of the questions as you possibly can. You may post your answers however you like - under your user name, anonymously, or you may e-mail them to us at hazing.survey@gmail.com. All posts will be screened, so no one except you, us, and the community administrator will be able to see your responses.

Please inform us of any questions, concerns, or feedback you might have. If you do not feel that this survey belongs in this community, or if you are offended by any part of it, please let us know and we will be more than willing to take it down. Thank you in advance for your time.

Toshi Tickets [10 Feb 2006|02:31am]
Hey everyone, I have tickets to tomorrow (Friday) night's Toshi party that I won't be using, and I'm selling them for half price since I'm hoping to just get rid of them. I have 3 girl tickets and 1 guy ticket, and I'll be selling the girl ones for $10 each and the guy one for $20. Go to www.toshifilms.com for details on the party and whatnot. The parties are usually really fun and I wish I were going, but I am sick so I don't think an open bar would be the best idea :)

If anyone is interested, call me (Rachel) at 508-813-2264 or Steph Quan (908-720-8953).

CC sections [14 Nov 2005|10:41pm]

Hello all!

Because a class I'm required to take (intro to comp lit) just changed times today (from MW 2:40 to W 9:00) I'm forced to switch out of my really good CC section. I'm quite upset about this, and hearing so many fellow classmates moan about their nightmarish profs has not made me feel any better. SO: if you've got a great section that ends before 3:00, please pretty please email me the info so I don't end up with a disaster.

My UNI is mnm2107

Thanks very much, all.

I got free Aimee Mann/Keren Ann tickets for that Downtown Music Series but I don't really want to go ... does anyone want to buy them from me? I feel bad that I can't just give them away but I waited for hours in the cold, I have to make up for it somehow.

CU-Relief kick off event today/Hurricane Katrina

Ok guys. No excuse not to go- unlike the barbecue last week, the weather will be gorgeous for this event. Get your tickets for Batman Begins and/or Crash from Lerner Box Office today until 4pm… Crash is being shown at 6 pm, Batman Begins is at 8 pm- on Low steps. Yeah- I’m looking at you. All proceeds go to victims of Hurricane Katrina. I hate pimping things, but it is for a good cause.

And seriously, Batman Begins is a great movie, I know non-batman fans who saw it two or three times- it’s that good. I know we can all still find it in our cold, cynical, existential hearts and donate 2 hours and 5 bucks. If you have the heart and energy to organize/participate in impromptu protests or bitch about King George, you can certainly grab a bunch of friends and… enjoy a good movie knowing its helping people.

And as you all know, the administration has taken in displaced students from Tulane, let’s show some solidarity, make our consideration visible to them in numbers. Spread the word, make this event a success.

A New Addition [28 May 2005|03:36pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Hi! I'm new to the class of 2008! I'm a transfer student from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. I live just outside Toronto, Ontario and I am going to major in Civil Engineering at Columbia. I was wondering if you guys had any tips or suggestions on where to live, what to bring, etc. Any inside information you can toss my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Making a website on the Columbia server [20 May 2005|03:23am]

[ mood | confused ]

Apparently all Columbia students are given space to make a website on the Columbia server, but neither I nor any of the Columbia people currently on my AIM list know how to access this. If anyone can please reply with a link or explanation of how to log in to make your website, that would be awesome. Thanks!!

Housing Next Year!! [11 May 2005|10:09am]

I posted this on the Columbia lj, but I thought I'd post here as well with a few modifications: if anyone, even someone who's not living in Nussbaum but has a room not too bad(Nussbaum is really really nice) and might want to consider swapping, please respond!

If anyone is living in Nussbaum (600 West 113th) next year, my roommate and I (rising sophomores) are currently in room 10-D4 and are looking to swap rooms within the building. There is nothing wrong with our room, it's really nice, has hardwood floors, approx 180 square feet, nice view, and the floor was rennovated last summer so everything's new...it's just that we're sharing a bathroom with two guys (a bathroom is shared between our two doubles) and our parents have asked us to try and change that by swapping rooms. So: if any rising sophomore (you have to be in the same class to swap, I think) doesn't mind sharing a bathroom btwn 4 people/changing rooms (or knows anyone who might want to swap and could put us in contact w/ them), please respond to this post! Thanks so much.
