Bad Weather Blame
Limmy: (commenting on Zoe, sitting up in her white-sheeted/duvetted bed) See, Zoe looks like a cloud!
Elliot: Yeah, cloud. (looks at Zoe accusingly) BRINGER OF RAIN.
How is it like having multiple time zones in the same country? Does that fudge...– Tom Waters, marveling at the fact that the USA has four time zones - Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am back in Oxford!!!
22nd May 2011: Graduation!
I officially graduated today, this twenty-second day of May. A chilly Sunday, without much sun, but more importantly, with no rain. A long day, with an all-university ceremony at 9.30am, break for lunch with the wonderfully warm Teo family, plus Janelle at 11am, then the International Relations/Political Science/Latin American studies ceremony at 1.30pm, then dinner with the gracious Kincaid...
There are no pet stores on Mount Desert Island.– explains a friend of mine. Brandon looks at me and says, “you just can’t make this kind of stuff up.” Bear in mine that this place is in Maine.

Covering John Mayer’s “I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You).” I usually avoid covering the same artist consecutively, but I’m breaking the rule this time. Unsurprisingly, it’s for Mr. Mayer. I’ve listened to his music so much it feels like his songs are imprinted on my soul, and they just come tumbling right out whenever I set myself down in front of...
BP on TV | a TV blog by Ben Phelps →
Today, we had our CMS Senior Celebration here at Tufts, which basically meant we get to see all the cool things that our peers have been up to over the past semester/year that are related to the fields of Communications and the Mass Media - film, television, social media, advertising, marketing, you-name-it-we-got-it. In some cases, we got to see what our friends have been doing over the course of...
I linked a video of the Bubs singing “Timshel” when I found it on youtube, tweeted when I overheard them practicing it overhead in Curtis Hall on my way home from campus, and now am posting the video I filmed of them singing it live, at Bubs in the Pub 2011. Yes, it is well obvious that I adore this song, and their take on it.
Weighing in on Osama's Death
My friend, Daniel Kim: I’ve been loving all my friend’s perspectives and insight (every single one) and I can’t quote all of you… But thank you for supplementing me with such a wide view of something so important. I’m with him. The news of Osama’s death has been met with a variety of responses amongst my friends, some of them American, some of them not,...
pickledil: As a student of History and International Relations, this is one of those moments I know will go down in the books. I fully understand the significance of this moment - yes he is dead and that means, symbolically, a great deal to Americans and a milestone in the war of terror. But as a History student who has written countless essays and papers arguing the significance of...

kkatyrose: Dear world, What does Bin Laden’s death stand for? Does this mean complete justice is now served? Does this mean that the reign of fear and hatred is now over just because he is dead? No. We think we’ve eliminated him and won, but he was just the face of the problem, not the root. Terror, ignorance, hatred and fear actually live deep in the core of every one of us. So let us not be...
