They should watch more Community and Once Upon A Time. I have a few people who already watch Community, but no one that I know of who watches Once Upon A Time.
I want to just talk uselessly about the plot structure and parallelism that is all too similar to Lost, and the cultural references that are littered throughout Community. I want to guess what and where other fairy tale characters will appear in OUAT and what they may have to do with the overall plot structure of the steadily growing universe that that TV show contains. I want to bemoan the horrible decision of NBCUniversal to pseudo-cancel Community to others who will understand the loss of this great piece of cultural media. Basically, these are my new Lost and Glee, but hopefully neither of them will crash and burn like one of these aforementioned did. And I’m not talking about the show that has been hailed as “a trademark of the 2000’s”.
Glee…I’m looking at you. Really. I just…..I don’t really know why I still watch actually. Probably because it’s something for me to relax to….I guess.
Done with finals! And I only think I failed one class!
Which is actually pretty good because I thought I would fail all of them.
It makes my day every time I go on Youtube and remember that I made a playlist called:
I look at the songs that are on the playlist, and I almost feel bed that I’ve degraded them to this nonsensical label…..but then I don’t. It’s like they were made for this genre of mine.
Time to listen to my “ghetto stupid” playlist as I try to study.
As many know by now, today at UCI we took a number of safety precautions including cordoning off the area around Aldrich Hall and the flag poles. We did so based on credible law enforcement information about suspicious activity originating from off campus and relating to the announced visit of Terry Jones, a Florida pastor. Several days ago, Jones had announced he would speak in the area of the flag poles from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on Thursday, Dec. 1. Since then, intelligence received by UCI police indicated suspicious activity that raised concern about the safety of the planned event. The suspicious activity involved outside individuals not associated or affiliated with the university. As a precaution, we secured the area for several hours and canceled nearby events. Otherwise, the campus was open and operating normally. Jones had said he intended to come to campus even though he did not complete an application to use amplified sound or to reserve space to speak at the flagpoles, where another event was scheduled for the same time. No permit is required for a member of the public to visit the campus or to espouse a point of view while on campus. Our campus policies treat all speakers equally. We regulate only the time place and manner of speech on a "content-neutral" basis, as required by state and federal law and university policy. This is true no matter how strongly we may disagree with the speaker or how antithetical the speaker's message may be to campus values and principles. Our policy on non-affiliates can be found at: http://today.uci.edu/pdf/non-affiliates_conduct_policy.pdf. Our policies on free speech and civility can be found at: http://www.vcsa.uci.edu/FreeSpeech/policies.php. I wish to extend my appreciation to the UC Irvine Police Department and Irvine Police Department for their efforts today to help ensure our safety. I also want to thank all of you for your cooperation and patience today. Chancellor Michael V. Drake, M.D.
Here’s what ACTUALLY happened. None of that “UCI is against Freedom of Speech” garbage. Idk if the bomb threat was what the “suspicious activity” was, but I wouldn’t throw it to the winds just yet. LOL see what I did there? see what I did there? And even I didn’t realize it until 5 minutes later :P
