The Skidmo Scoop: Campus Events for the Week of October 23rd

Paper Swan

Origami and Tea Night
Monday, October 23rd, 7:00-8:00 pm

Remember those kids in elementary school who were always making paper swans and pissing you off because you couldn’t make a paper swan? Well, now that kid that everybody hates can be you! Come by Palamountain Hall 301 for an origami and tea study break.

Sip on some chamomile and make some swans, or whatever.


Dancing Dream

WSPN ABBA Cover Band Show
Thursday, October 26th, 9:00-10:30 pm

Do you know the song “Dancing Queen?” Well, chances are, you might’ve not known that the band who made that song is called ABBA. And guess who’s coming to Falstaff’s this Thursday?!

No, the real ABBA isn’t.

But! Dancing Dream, an ABBA cover band, is! Cover bands are the best because they’re kind of like shopping in a bargain bin. There’s going to be a lot derivative uninspired shit in there, but every now and again, you find a real winner.

I’m not sure which Dancing Dream will be. Chances are that they will be shit, but I’ve never been someone to let probability destroy my hope. So I’ve got some big expectations for Dancing Dream.


Haunted Northwoods

Haunted Northwoods
Friday, October 27th, 9:00-11:00

Travel through the Northwoods this Friday if you dare. The spookiness will be on 11. And because the Environmental Action Club is hosting it, instead of ghosts and zombies, there will be signs about the fun consequences of a post-apocalyptic future due to climate change! While climate change doesn’t necessarily scream “Halloween,” it certainly screams “HOLY SHIT OH MY FUCKING GOD WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE,” and maybe that’s just as scary.


Rocky Horror Picture Show

Interactive Viewing of Rocky Horror Picture Show
Friday, October 27th, 10:30 pm – 1:30 am

If you love it when people talk through movies and throw stuff at you, then you’ll love Rocky Horror Picture Show in the Spa!

When I went to my first Rocky Horror Picture Show experience, I was expecting lights, high production value, a crazy good show, and an even better performance. Unfortunately, what I got was a shitty movie and some eh actors running around in front of it.

This is not to say that Friday’s event won’t be a blast. I know several people who LOVE Rocky Horror Picture Show. And I’d put money on Cabaret Troupe doing a spectacular job with it.

But it is to say that Rocky Horror Picture Show is kind of like getting a job—you can only get one if you already have experience; you’ll have a better time at the movie if you’re already into it.

It’s weird how things work out that way.


Monster Movie Marathon

Monster Movie Marathon
Saturday, October 28th, 6:00 pm – 12:00 am

Goblins and ghouls on the big screen, now this is what Halloween is all about.

Film Club wants you to forget about impressing everyone with that sexy firefighter costume or whatever couple pieces of small thin fabric you were gonna wear, and come bundled up for some wholesome Halloween fun outside the Tang.


Tom DeLuca

Halloween Hypnotist Tom DeLuca
Saturday, October 28th, 9:00-10:00 pm

Come see Tom Deluca in Filene Auditorium for a “hypnotizing” performance—ha! Get it?

Everyone’s stressed about mid-terms and papers and whatnot, so come by and forget about everything for an hour. And maybe, if he’s really good, you’ll forget about everything forever. Wouldn’t that be cool?
