Hey Dakin kids!

So, I was walking down to saga this morning for my daily helping of eggs and awfull coffee that I drink only because it is free(but not really) when I ran into the guy who is painting the stairwells. We started talking, and he mentioned that SOMEONE STOLE HIS PAINTBRUSHES! This wouldn’t be that big of a deal except that he USES THOSE TO MAKE A LIVING WITH. So, on his behalf I would like to plead to the residents of Dakin that you give the man the tools with which he makes a living back. Just place them back on the tool-rack on the first floor of the Dakin G stairwell.

P.S. Richard Rushfield is following our blog now! He is the man who wrote a hilarious book about his time at Hampshire in the 80s called “Don’t Follow Me I’m Lost”. He is an ex-Dakin resident (J3). He is also probably really ashamed that someone would steal a painters tools. Why are you making Richard Rushfield ashamed? What has he done to you? Stop it, you guys! If you don’t I’m just going to move to Greenwich and start wearing Hawaiian shirts.

Get up on this event!  Should be sick.  

Also, I hope everyone in the DH is holding up pretty well.  HERE WE GO FINALS!

NOISE!

Noise is a couple things.

Noise is a movie starring Tim Robbins who plays a man living in New York City who is driven mad by the excessive noise in the city.  Instead of moving like a normal person, he becomes a vigilante who breaks into peoples cars with a baseball bat in order to stop the noise.  What a mean thing to do!  What a weird thing to make a movie about! 

Also, check out that tagline.

noise

You’ve had it “…up to HEAR”?!?!  Yikes. 

Noise is also something that there shouldn’t be a whole lot of during quiet hours. 

Please respect the posted quiet hours on each of your respective halls and everyone will be a lot more happy and probably less likely to come at you (or your car?) with a baseball bat in the name of justice. Not everyone wants to hear your rendition of Gogol Bordello’s “start wearing purple” no matter how good it is when its 1am.

Also, don’t feel bad about asking people to quiet down yourself.  You are totally in the right as long as you ask nicely to turn down their music or their face.  If you aren’t comfortable asking though, ask an intern.  They totally want to help and will without hesitation if you ask, that goes for asking large crowds of drunk kids in the quad to quiet down too.  They are kinda super heroes like that.
