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.

Come watch your friends compete in the annual FAB Dating Game this Friday, February 15th at 8:30pm in the East Wing of the DC!

Who doesn’t want to eat chocolate strawberries and watch Danny Siegel fly around in Cupid Wings?

Come out on Friday, February 15th for the FAB Dating Game.

IT’S HERE!  IT’S FINALLY HERE.  The one sporting event that gives football fans a reason to keep going!

SUPER BOWL XLVII (47) is here at last and on February 3rd Fords on campus and around the world will be watching to see which team comes out on top. Will it be the feisty Baltimore Ravens or the energetic San Francisco 49ers?

For this football fan, this year’s Super Bowl is shaping up to be the most exciting event to start off the year. And I’m gonna tell you why!

First of all, the teams playing this year have overcome some big players to get to where they are now. In the playoffs, the Ravens defeated both the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots (take THAT Tom Brady) in epic games that had fans sitting on the edges of their seats.

The 49ers on the other hand, seeded as #2 in the NFC, started off their playoffs with a bye.  But that doesn’t mean they just waltzed into the SuperBowl!  They defeat the Green Bay Packers in a heated match and then went on to face the Atlanta Falcons next.  Although the Falcons had a major lead in the first half of the game, the 49ers were able to pull of an astounding comeback and sealed their spot in the BIG game!

So whats gonna happen this game?  Will the Ravens continue to dethrone powerful seeded teams?  Or will the 49ers stand their ground?!

But the teams are only half the fun of the SuperBowl!  Lets talk about the Coaches!

This years games have been nicknamed the Harbaugh Bowl because for the first time in NFL history the head coaches of the opposing teams  are BROTHERS! (THE DRAMA!!!) On Sunday Baltimore’s John Harbaugh and San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh will square off in an epic sibling rivalry.  Can’t wait to see how this goes down!!

But besides the epicness of football, the SuperBowl has a myriad of other reasons to tune in.

Apparently during the famous SuperBowl half time show Beyonce will be bringing Destiny’s Child back together!

Not only that, the SuperBowl Commercials are brand new and every year people judge the best, worst, funniest, and stupidest commercials.  Finally, commercials we can actually look forward to!

This year at Haverford, FAB is hosting a SuperBowl Party in the Coop, starting at 6:30!!!

So come on down for some free Wings and Drinks!!!

LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTEDDDDDD!!!!!

Lets Go!!!!

  • hello Everyone, I'm an intern for the Student Activities Office! I'm an English major and Japanese minor. I was born and raised in New York and love turning my city into my playground. During my free time I like to hang out with my friends in the city. I often drag them to the local karaoke lounges in Koreatown. (because no matter what anybody says, butchering the latest pop songs in front of your family and friends is a liberating experience! :P) Other than singing I love dancing, fighting games, and meeting new people. So feel free to use me as a resource! Peace!
