Livin’ the Dream: Seasons of Love?  February 15, 2013 – 06:31 pm

Concordia, let me be frank, I doubt I could count to 525, 600 minutes. But apparently this is the numerical currency to the “Season of Love, ” so it captured my attention. I may be a little late on making my “Rent” here, but Valentines day is upon us, which means that I will be exposed for the hopeless romantic that I am. What do I mean by this? Well let me tell you, I have been put up to a challenge. Scratch that. I have been put up to THE challenge (for me at least). This may sound ironic to you, but I have crippling moments of shyness. No, no, I’m not being facetious; when it comes to talking to women I freeze. I am like all the Bambis in the world who lock up and fail to sidestep the headlights of “missed opportunity” (Bambi was a boy, right? Because that would derail the simile if he/she/it wasn’t…but he is, though? Okay, good. Thanks!). Anyhoo, here’s my commission: by direct order of my Interpersonal Relationships Professor, aka my “Romantor” (Meaning “Romance Mentor”… patent pending, it’s a term that’s going to catch on. Also in the works is another word I came up with – “Friend-tor” standing for “Friend/Mentor”. They’re gonna catch on, people. Just you wait.), I am to ask out three girls by the end of the month of February. Why? To build confidence. How will this help? Baseball statistics. My Roman-tor says that most likely two of the three will say no, but the odds are that one might say yes. If this holds up to reason, I’ll be batting like .300 or so. Which, that would be a good stat for even Josh Hamilton. Will this work? Time will tell. Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 12.26.01 PM Am I a complete dork? Most definitely. So here’s my promise to you, my valued and dearest of readers: I will be sure to post the results in our next edition of ‘The Monthly Spin’. You may then feel free to mock or marvel as you see fit (I would personally mock if I were in your shoes), but should this endeavor find me in love, then color me a successful hopeless romantic. And you can measure that “in midnights, ” “in sunsets, ” “in cups of coffee, ” or some nonsense like that.

Here’s to love, Concordia. Here’s to love. Make good choices, everyone. -Seanzy

Quotations from the Freedom Crowd

'I never intend to adjust myself to the madness of militarism.'
- Martin Luther King Jr.
'However sugarcoated and ambiguous, every form of authoritarianism must start with a belief in some group's greater right to power, whether that right is justified by sex, race, class, religion, or all four.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
