Got nothing to do this Friday night? Yeah, me neither.

Join FAB for a screening of Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, and Jacki Weaver. All-star cast, right?The movie is pretty hilarious and heartbreaking and takes place not too far from Haverford. (The diner used in the film is just 15 minutes away and is owned by the owners of Minella’s! Buff chick tens, anyone?)

Jennifer and Bradley play two absolute psychos who fall in love at first jog. Some favorite quotes are:

Pat (played by BC): Mom, can we stop at the library? I want to read Nikki’s entire high school syllabus. LOL crazy.

Tiffany (played by JL): Humanity is just nasty and there is no silver lining. I see what you did there!

 

Also, Jennifer Lawrence – I refuse to call her J-Law; she’ll never be able to do what J-Lo did in the biopic Selena (RIP) – snagged a few awards for best actress at the Golden Globes, The People’s Choice, and obviously the Academy Awards, at which she pulled this incredibly strategic move:

85th Annual Academy Awards - Show What a genius, right? She looks like a beautiful Disney princess.

FRIDAY, APRIL 12 SHARPLESS AUDITORIUM 8PM & 10:30 PM

 

Come support the performing arts in the Bi-Co! This weekend three dance majors will present their senior theses. The audience will see new works by Antonia Brown (“Thirst”), Luciana Fortes (“Black Lining”), and Christopher Flores (“The Coming Glory”). These pieces – running 15- to 20-minutes in length – have been in the works since September and will feature dancers from Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore Colleges.

This is the first year three dance majors will be presenting original works, and the first year the show will be held in the Hepburn Teaching Theater at Bryn Mawr College. The dance majors have also received substantial support from the E. Clyde Lutton ’66 Memorial Fund for the Performing Arts & the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities. This is a year of triumphs for the Dance Department.

Support your friends, support the arts, and immerse yourself in a world not so recognized in Haverford academia.

Awards season is upon us, and the gawdy, judgmental grandmother covered in pearls who has been 85 our entire lives of award shows is this Sunday: The Academy Awards.

Much more important than the Emmys, less entertaining than the Golden Globes, and less LOL than the Grammys (Carrie Underwood’s projector screen dress, am I right?!), the Oscars are for old people – do you know anyone your age named Oscar? – who actually want (need) to sit for hours at a time watching people glorify the movies they funded. It’s Hollywood loving itself.

And it’s the best award show there is.

This is the show where designers save their absolute best for actors to wear down the Red Carpet – the most important part of the night. The best dresses of all time go to Audrey Hepburn 1953, Grace Kelly 1955, and Elizabeth Taylor 1970, all wearing Edith Head. (Yes, they have received the title of Best Dressed from yours truly – the ultimate authority on all things vanity.) Jennifer Lopez receives an honorable mention, wearing the likes of Jean Desses 2006, Chanel Haute Couture 2001, Valentino 2003, and Armani Privé 2010 (Si se puede, JLo!).

This year’s host will be Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. As stuffy as this award show is, they picked a comedian who writes one of the most crude shows around (www.youtube.com/watch?v=XStxajua9SU). Good luck, Seth. Hopefully you can be funnier than Jon Stewart was allowed, and more entertaining than ever-boring (and ever-high) hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco.

Now, my picks for this year’s winner (I’m just way too lazy to type out every nominee.)

Best Picture: Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, or Lincoln. Nothing better than a movie that screams “USA! USA!”, which all of these do.

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis. Old people love other old people.

Best Actress: Jessica Chastain. Hollywood loves a stunning ginger. I think Quvenzhané Wallis deserves it, though. I mean, she was 6 when they filmed it.

Best Supporting Actor: Not that interested in this category. So like, idk, Robert De Niro?

Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway. Ugh, I know, but she killed her solo.

Best Animated Feature Film: Brave. Hands down. It’s so good.

That’s all I’ll predict for now, seeing as my shift is over. My predictions will probably all be wrong anyway, whatever.

So don’t miss the Oscars this Sunday! Join FAB for an Oscar viewing party at 7 pm in the MCC, complete with hors d’oeuvres.

Dress code: black tie only. If you’re not in Dior, don’t bother.

 

 

 

This weekend is the Fall Student Dance Concert! An annual event since like the ’80s or something, this year’s concert is directed by yours truly, for the third time in a row.

You’d be surprised to find how many students on Haverford’s campus are dancers. Whether dancing since the age of three or starting out as a freshman always interested in hip-hop, dance at Haverford range from ballet to breaking, Latin to belly-dancing. There are so many opportunities to dance. Whether through the dance department at Bryn Mawr or through student clubs like Bounce and Haverford Ballet Company.

This showcase features so many different styles, and all the dancers are so excited to show off their stuff. Every piece is student choreographed and performed. With the help of our amazing tech crew, the talent of our dancers, and the support from our peers, this show is sure to be a success.

Saturday, Nov. 17th at 8pm and Sunday, Nov. 18th at 1pm, Marshall Auditorium.

Come out and support the performing arts on Haverford’s campus!

 

This Saturday (the 24th) is Haverford’s annual Screw Your Roommate, a serendipitous night for some and an unfortunate fate for others.

Freshmen get paired up with other freshmen for a steamy date night. Love ensues.

Though it’s mostly awkward (“Sooo.. um.. why did you choose to go to Haverford?” “I like small campuses.” “Cool.”), it’s a great way for Fords to meet more Fords.

CPs, get your freshmen screwed! Freshmen, don’t chicken out!

Skits are in the DC at 5pm and the dance starts at 10 in Founders. Jungle themed. Get wild. *Decorations by SECS Main Line Interior Decorating.

See you all there!
